Sadio Haidara was interviewed on the Newcastle web-site immediately after the game last night, and he said the players were angry in the dressing room, after a below par performance, which simply wasn’t good enough.
Newcastle didn’t deserve anything at West Ham, and we didn’t get anything at West Ham.

That’s over now, but we have to do a lot better against visiting Watford on Saturday, if we are to pick up our first league win of the season.
This is what Haidara had to say:
“We are all disappointed because we didn’t play very well at West Ham.” “We have to react on Saturday because we need the points. We are not in a good position and need to leave there as soon as possible.”
“The first goal was difficult to block because he shot very well. Tim could do nothing about it.” “But after the goal we had to do better and try to come back into the game.”
“The second goal was a bad one to concede, our heads dropped down and it was difficult for us to come back into the game.” “Everybody was angry after the game. We know we can do better and we didn’t do it, so it is normal for people to be frustrated.”
“It is good that the next game is so quick, because it means we have to forget about it straight away and focus everything on Saturday and Watford.”
“It is a very important game and we have to be ready. We have to take points and that starts on Saturday. We have a few days to work and to find a way to win.”
Watford have 6 points from their first 5 league games, so they will stay above us in the league table, even if we beat them on Saturday.
But these are the games we must win – at home against a newly promoted side – if we are to do well this season.
Certainly we need to start climbing the league table and put some wins on the board, and get away from rock bottom of the league, which is where we are at present.
Here’s hoping we can get our first league win on Saturday.
