Newcastle haven’t scored a goal in our last three league games so hopefully we can score at West Ham on Monday night.
An upbeat Steve McClaren was positive as usual at his press conference today, and said Newcastle simply needed the breaks and the goals and the results will come.
Steve McClaren was upbeat at press conference today
Certainly the next three games at West Ham, and at home to Watford and Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup, are important and we need to pick up some wins in those games.
This is some of what Steve McClaren has said today during his press conference:
“We’ve played two games with ten men against quality opposition so we weren’t going to create a lot of chances in those games,”
“We have Papiss Cissé and Ayoze Perez who will be looking to prove a point, as all strikers do, and I believe we have enough quality in that position to get goals.”
“But we need the breaks. We need to play better football, create more chances, score more goals and the results will come.”
Newcastle haven’t played too bad in the first four league games of the season, but it hasn’t been consistent, and as Steve says – when you are down to 10 men in the first half, it really restricts what you can do.
Yes, we need the breaks.
Thinks, maybe West Ham will go down to 10 men in the first half on Monday night?
That’s a nice thought – for us that is.
That would be a good break.
What do you think?
