Newcastle have been simply great in the last two games, and we’ve seen two away wins in the last four days at Tottenham and Manchester City – two of the most difficult grounds to get results in England.
Alan Pardew last night – kept his cool
And our win last night was with a side that showed seven changes from the side that started at Tottenham and contained a 17 year-old and an 18 year-old in the starting line-up.
At the start of the game, it’s a team we thought had no chance of winning the game – that’s the truth. 😀
But the win last night was exciting and so full of guts, commitment and passion from the Newcastle players that the lads are receiving national acclaim for their performance at the Etihad Stadium, that knocked out the reigning Capital One Cup Champions.
But that will not mean too much if we cannot continue the good form and results and take something out of our home game on Saturday against Liverpool, which kicks off less than 48 hours from now.
Somehow the Newcastle players have to come down from their high of last night and play at their very best once again – and f we can take all three points from the runners-up in the Premier League, to go with beating the PL Champions at their place last night – then it really will be a time to (really) celebrate on Saturday night.
One of the toughest things a side has to do is to play at their best whether they have just had a great win or a terrible defeat – it’s basically the same challenge.
We hope to see the lads play on Saturday with the same commitment, passion and not a little skill they have shown in the last three games, as the lads start to turn the season around and help us get away from the relegation zone.
It’s a lot to ask from our team, which is not exactly the most experienced side in the league, but we think the mentality and mental toughness of the side make it possible that we can indeed get our fourth win in a row.
If we can do that it would be terrific – and that’s what we are hoping for on Saturday.
Howay The Lads!!
