Newcastle United are in a remarkable revival of our fortunes, and we have five wins on the trot, and since it is now the International break we can lay back and enjoy the unexpected resurgence, after going from second bottom of the league on 29th September to 8th top last Sunday.
It’s been a great six weeks. 😀
Even Alan Pardew cannot stop smiling
It seems that with Newcastle, it’s either feast or famine, it’s all great or it’s all falling apart – so it’s very important during the feasts that we enjoy it – and eat enough of the good stuff.
Heaven knows we have had enough famine over the last few years.
Next up is second bottom QPR at home a week on Saturday, and although that will not be an easy game, if the lads play as well as they have over the last few games, there’s even a decent chance that in front of a sold-out St. James’ Park – we can even get another win.
That would be six wins in a row – where’s those blood pressure pills?
Whatever you think of manager Alan Pardew, he deserves credit for turning around what was a very bad situation – and in a dramatic way too.
But we always have to remember this is Newcastle, and we don’t do many things in half measures.
This is what the manager has said today:
“The younger players have been magnificent. I’d have been surprised to name this team at the start of the season.”
“But I’ve leant on them, they’ve worked hard in the background all this time and we are getting our rewards.”
“You have to keep believing in what you are doing.” “The philosophy of the team hasn’t changed too much.”
Keep believing – yes – that’s what we need to do.
The younger players have simply been magnificent, and after they let us down during the Europa League season a couple of years back – when we ended up fighting relegation – they have been extra special so far this season, and all credit goes to them.
Players like Ayoze Perez, Sammy Ameobi, Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid and Paul Dummett have been outstanding, and long may it continue.
While there have been many news reports about how Newcastle have managed this rather remarkable turnaround – and that is to be expected – it’s also important that fans get the best out of it and enjoy it – because you never know what is around the corner.
As we said – this is Newcastle United after all.
We’re proud of the way our players have turned this thing around in the last six weeks.
Howay The Lads!!
