Newcastle Midfielder Upbeat About Newcastle’s Future

Moussa Sissoko had a decent enough game for Newcastle on Saturday in the 1-0 win at home to Leicester which was an excellent result for us and the second half performance was encouraging.

It was almost a do or die game for Newcastle to win last Saturday,  and we did it, but it wasn’t pretty to watch – especially in that first half but a win is a win – and it was our first win in the league, so we’ll take it and we’ll be happy about it too.

Why not?

But that was an easy game compared to the two upcoming league games at Spurs and at home to Liverpool,  and sandwiched between them is a tough Capital One Cup tie to Manchester City.

A little bit of history – we’ve lost the last 10 encounters with the Manchester money bags club – one of the best teams money can buy.

This is what Sissoko told the Shields Gazette today:

“It was a fantastic result for the team,” “We work hard every day, and we have been unlucky.” “But it was a great result.”  “We won our first game of the season, and I hope now we start a good season for the team.”

“This win is good. The next three games will be very hard – we play against big teams.” “We play against Tottenham, Man City and Liverpool.”

“We have some confidence, and I hope we play well and get the three points in the next game.” “When we win, every player is happy – and the fans and the manager.”

“Everybody is happy. We will savour this game together, and afterwards work for the next game.”  “Gabby Obertan is a fantastic player.”

“He played very well and scored, so we are happy for him.” “I hope for him, he will continue to work hard and help the team.”

Oh what a relief it was at that final whistle on Saturday,  and even in stoppage time Leicester City went very close to equalizing, which would have been a huge downer – much like it was when Crystal Palace equalized after five minutes of stoppage time. 🙁

But now we have 7 points from 8 league games, which is not too bad, but now we have to take something out of the next two league games,  if we are start moving up the league table.

    Rotonda…Nice to see some praise for Obertan. Whilst I’m yet to be convinced how long he can keep it going for, he is contributing, providing assists / goals, or should that be in the singular?

    As for your little riddle there, can I have another clue? I’m leaning towards Newcastle, but feel it may be a trick question.
