Moussa Sissoko was our Man of the Match in Saturday’s disaster at the Etihad Stadium, and hopefully the 25 year-old French International is coming into some good form.
Moussa Sissoko in action on Saturday
It was Newcastle worst display of the season , and also our biggest defeat of the season, and hopefully the Newcastle players will make amends on Saturday afternoon.
We play second bottom Aston Villa at home, and they have recently appointed Tim Sherwood as their new manager, after finally dismissing Paul Lambert.
This is what Moussa Sissoko has told the Shields Gazette today:
“The fans have been behind us all season – when we’ve won and when we’ve lost.” “We have to say thank you and do the best every game. We try to win the next game for us and for the fans.”
“We have to stay together. To lose 5-0 is hard, but if we want to do something for the rest of the season we have to stay together.”
“We have to work hard and be ready for Saturday.” “It’s a team. I have a responsibility to the team, and I will try to do my best.”
“I can play well and I can play bad sometimes, but as a team we try to play well together. We’ll see in the next game.”
“We didn’t play well,” “We conceded a penalty too early.” “When they scored after 20 seconds, it’s hard to do something.”
“Now we have to learn about this game and train very hard and be ready for the next game.” “The plan was to stay solid and compact and try to score one goal if we can, but we conceded a goal too early.”
“Everybody knows we didn’t play well. We have to learn about this game and try to win the next game.” “We have to be ready and stay focused.”
“It’s a massive game for everybody and we have to get the three points.”
When Moussa Sissoko is in form, Newcastle usually do very well, and it’s really a good opportunity to get all three points against a side that have scored only four goals in their 13 road games this season.
In fact we hope there are a number of Newcastle’s players in top form on Saturday, after the tripe they served up last time out.
It just wasn’t good enough for a Newcastle United side – and we hope they will do a lot better against Villa.
A win would be terrific.
