Daryl Janmaat was one of the few players willing to give an interview after the 6-1 mauling we took at the Etihad on Saturday so once again the Dutchman showed his courage – which he also happens to show on the field too.
Fabricio Coloccini should be one of the players ho speaks after each defeat like this – Steve McClaren should demand it – whoever is the captain.
Daryl Janmaat – offers no excuses
Sergio Aguero scored five goals at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday and the world-class striker equalled the record number of goals scored in one PL game.
Alan Shearer also holds the record when he scored 5 goals against Sheffield Wednesday in Sir Bobby Robson´s debut game as manager at St. James’ Park in September 1999.
We won that game 8-0.
Daryl offered no excuses for what happened in that disastrous second half at the Etihad on Saturday:
“There are no excuses,” “We have to stand up. We have had a tough eight games. It wasn’t good enough, but we have to look forward and start getting points.”
“Everybody knows that’s not good enough – that 10 minutes in the second half.” “I feel sorry for them. We had a lot of supporters here.”
“They saw a very good first half, but then in the second half wasn’t good for them and they don’t deserve it.”
“We are very disappointed, especially after the first half. It was really good, and then in 10 minutes we lost the game.”
“Aguero is a very good player, but you can’t allow him to score five times. We needed to stop him.”
“We know it’s tough in the Premier League is tough, but you have to play 100% otherwise you get killed.”
It´s good that Daryl tells the truth there – it must have been terrible for those fans to see a Newcastle team capitulate in that second half.
It was very hard to watch and let´s hope that stuff doesn´t happen again this season.
The least our players have to do is give 100% in every single situation during every single game.
