It’s hardly surprising that John Carver was delighted with the win this afternoon at Hull City, when Newcastle went in at half time 1-0 up through a wonderful first goal from Remy Cabella, and then Sammy Ameobi five minutes into the second half probably scored an even better one from 30 yards out, and Yoan Gouffran completed the scoring on 78 minutes.
It was a great result for Newcastle.
Sammy Ameobi – scoring a fantastic goal today at Hull
What’s been really good in the last several weeks is the improving form of Remy Cabella, and he had another good game today – and is starting to look a bit like the player we thought we had signed last summer.
John Carver talked about Remy after the game:
“I said to him before the game, ‘I know you have got ability, start doing something for me, give me a goal.’ I’m so pleased for him. His all-round performance was excellent. It’s a great finish. He will get stronger and fitter.”
“It’s hard coming from another league into the Premier League. There will be bad days, that’s what happens with flair players.” “It’s a great feeling. I’m so pleased with the performance. There was not a great deal in it first half.
“Tim Krul made a great save and that gave us platform. We grew in confidence and starting keeping the ball after the first goal.” “I want this job. We have refocused the guys’ season – it’s now a 15-game season for us.”
“Everyone now knows I’m the head coach.”
Haidara had a good game today – and it seems every time the French youngster gets a chance in the first team he plays well – and we also thought that Vurnon Anita deserved his start with his performance today – and Vurnon was very compact and tidy in midfield.
And even though Ayoze Perez had a fairly quiet game today for him – he still went close on three occasions.
It’s a great win – but it will be a sterner test next Sunday at home to Stoke City – but we will still have to go all out for another win.
