Local lad Jack Colback has been interviewed on nufcTV by Dan King, and Jack comes across as positive, as usual, but he admits Newcastle didn’t produce the goods on Monday night at Upton Park.
But the 25 year-old points to other games this season, when we have played well although we have just two points and two goals in our first five league games – which is not good enough.
Jack Colback beats Mark Noble – in action on Monday night
This is how Dan King opened up the conversation:
Three big home game are coming up so it´s a pretty big few days ahead isn´t it?
“Yeah it is, obviously the season has not started as maybe everybody would have hoped.” “Obviously Two tough games where we went down to 10 men and you can pretty much write off those games really.”
“You look at Southampton we probably should have won, ManU a good point and then obviously West Ham we didn’t perform on the night.” So yeah, we have three home games now and hopefully we can now take maximum home wins from them.”
“There’s fine margins really in this league and I think their quality in the final third was the difference really.” “The French boy – Payet – produced the first goal which was a great finish and then the timing of second goal killed us.”
“We analyse and see why things happened like they did and then move on to Watford.” “Wins will always make a big difference, winning is a habit really, once you get one it brings confidence and we are maybe still suffering from the form of last season.”
“But you know, it´s a new start for the club, obviously the new manager and staff have come in and it´s going to take a bit time but we have seen positive signs in the other games.”
Probably only West Ham where we’ve not had a great game but that can happen in this league, but we got to focus on picking up three points and then seeing where we can go from there.”
Spirits are not high among Newcastle supporters at the moment and they won’t be until we can get our first league win on the board.
Hopefully, that will come tomorrow against Watford, and if we can get all 3 points that will be 5 points from six games, which isn´t too bad.
