Players Proving They Want Newcastle To Be Successful

Things may be starting to look up at Newcastle, and after the lads got our first league win of the season, apparently the dressing room was a very positive place after the game, and even owner Mike Ashley was there thanking the players and the coaches.

Jack Colback – in action on Saturday

It’s probably opened a few fans’ eyes that Mike Ashley was so happy and upbeat after the victory on Saturday, and maybe shows he is more committed to Newcastle to do well than we thought.


Local lad Jack Colback has made a solid start to his Newcastle career this season, and he had this to say today:

“Everyone wants to be successful here, and I think we are in a false position. The fans deserve better but hopefully the win can set us off and we can win some more games.”

“We have to build on this.” “In football, it is not doom and gloom all season but a couple of wins can change the feeling.”

“We have to focus on Spurs and hopefully get a win there. It is difficult when you are not winning games, really difficult. It can get hard when you are playing out there.”

“The fans have stuck with us and we have got the win for them. It has to be a platform to move forward.”

“In the dressing room after the Leicester win the manager praised us. He praised our work rate and application. It has been tough for him and he has kept us positive.”

“It is good for him. It is a relief for the manager to get that win. Hopefully we can move on now.”

It is time to move on, and the next two league games are important – at Tottenham on Sunday afternoon and the following Saturday at home to Liverpool, which is a game we can win,  if we play well.

We need to somehow pick up some points from those two games, and we are not too badly positioned in the league,  and are within 3 points of 11th place – so if we can pick up some points in the next few games we can start to move up the league table.

That’s what we want to see, and the lads can do it, if they keep showing the guts and courage they have shown in the last five games.

    i don’t think it’s a case of everyone wants to be successful at newcastle, I think it’s a case of everyone wants to be like welshgeordie.

    I don’t think anyone wants to be unsuccessful whatever they doing.
    Ed I think if it gives you comfort to think that about Ashley then go ahead. I’m not convinced. He’ll be happy that some of the support will be appeased and lighten up on him but from what I’ve read so far that makes him equally deluded.
    that said, the win felt good and here’s hoping we can keep it going. There are plenty of positives if you’re inclined to look. Sometimes think the guys on here are overly negative at times but I guess they’d prefer the term realistic. 🙂

    I mirror what canny has said, nobody wants to be unsuccessful,especially footballers as success leads to great reward. The issue is Ashley doesn’t care about success, he only cares about consolidation. Even pardew wants success but doesn’t have the platform for it, or the real ability to get it.

    Really looking forward to seeing Ryan Taylor back in the team,fingers crossed he comes through the next few weeks. He can galvanise the team a little, and provide some much needed quality from dead ball situations. As long as Willow is out of the side / not lurking at the back post for that intricate routine we occasionally use

    Jeff…Why would Ashley being happy at our first win in the PL this season (8th game) have any bearing on his commitment to the club?

    I was happy with Southamptons win at the weekend, but it had nothing to do with being committed to the Saints.
