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.
