22 year-old winger Sammy Ameobi is having his best ever season at Newcastle, and he put in another good performance yesterday at St. James’ Park in the hard-fought 1-0 win over QPR.
Sammy Ameobi in action on Saturday
In fact Sammy got the assist that set up Moussa Sissoko for the winning goal after 78 minutes, and that gave the Magpies their sixth win in a row. 😀
This is what Sammy said immediately after the game on Saturday:
“It wasn’t easy and, as we know, no Premier League game is easy.” “QPR do work very hard and it was tough but we stuck together.”
“Our banks of four were strong, we were really hard to break down and eventually got a goal and saw the game out.”
“We had a lot of opportunities in the first half and even in the second half, so we had to just be patient and wait for that one opportunity and we got it in the end.”
“Papiss could’ve ended the game towards the end, Ayoze had a few chances and I had a few shots myself.” “It’s just the way the game goes really. The most important thing is the three points and we got that.”
“It was really sad about Ryan.” ” I really hope he’s okay.” “I think he’s gone for a scan. We all hope it’s not the same injury – I’m sure it’s not – but I really hope he’s back as soon as possible.”
“Ryan is a big factor in our team, in terms of mentally – he gets the lads riled up before a game and is a really big part of this team. I hope to see him back soon.”
Ryan Taylor went to hospital after the game, and he then tweeted that everything was OK late on Saturday night via his Twitter account, and certainly everybody associated with Newcastle were relieved to hear the good news.
And Sammy needs to keep playing like he’s been doing over the last few games, if he is to get an extension of his contract, which runs out next June.
But if the local lad continues to play the way he’s been playing of late, he should be able to get a new deal at his home town club.
Sammy has played 10 times this season with that one dramatic goal against Spurs,and he has 49 total appearances for Newcastle with three goals.
