One thing we were worried about this summer – after a completely disastrous second half of the season – is that some of our star players would want to leave the club and even demand a move away from Newcastle United.
However, last Sunday we all saw how great it can be at Newcastle, with John Carver and the lads finally coming through big time with a very good performance and a magnificent 2-0 win against West Ham that saved us – and a packed full St. James’ Park cheered on the lads and we survived in the Premier League.
Daryl Janmaat – excellent first season at Newcastle
That was a huge positive end to the season – which has been simply disastrous for the club – and we hope Ashley and Charnley and the rest of the club’s hierarchy will learn from the mistakes they made in the last six months – which almost got us relegated.
Good news today that two signings of last summer – Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat – are both keen to stay at Newcastle United, according to a report in the Chronicle today.
Remy has had difficulty adjusting to the Premier League but Daryl adjusted quickly – as a replacement for Mathieu Debuchy – and was one of Newcastle’s best players this season, and he looked one of the best right backs in the Premier League last season.
Remy Cabella – had tough first season
We hope that Remy Cabella can come through next season – and he will have learned a lot from his first tough season at the club, and it’s not unusual for a player to struggle in their first season in England.
This is more good news for Newcastle, after we actually heard Mike Ashley speak last Sunday on Sky Sports before the crucial game at home to West Ham – and the owner even said he wanted to win something with Newcastle.
We are still recovering from that shock – but maybe we can now go after one of the cups – the FA Cup and the League Cup – next season, and hey who knows we could even make it to Wembley.
That’s more of a possibility now than before Mike surprisingly had his first interview in eight years, and it was good that he immediately took the responsibility for the demise of Newcastle in the second half of the season.
The man at the top is always responsible for things when they go wrong in any organization.
It’s very good news that Remy and Daryl want to stay at Newcastle – and Moussa Sissoko has also made noises that he’s going nowhere this summer.
