WE were hoping that we have had a bad start to the season – but that´s all – and that hopefully we can pull away as the team starts to play the way Steve McClaren is trying to get the lads to play together.
The very last thing we want is a season where we are fighting relegation from start to finish.
Harry Redknapp – it´s going to tight down there
But that seems to be what Harry Redknapp thinks will happen to Newcastle.
Harry thinks Newcastle are showing good signs of late that we may become a decent enough side this season, but the former Tottenham and QPR manager says it´s going to be tight down there
We didn´t expect to be down there at all this season – that’s one of the problems we have with what Harry says.
This is what Redknapp said about Newcastle on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT:
“They played well first half against Sunderland, they looked good but the penalty and sending off changed everything.”
“I think they’ve shown enough to suggest they’ve got a chance but it’s going to be tight down there.”
“There’s going to be six or seven teams scrapping away in that relegation battle and at the moment, you wouldn’t really like to call it.”
Well at least we have got Coloccini´s red card overturned by the FA but the damage is done – and it was a poor referring decision indeed.
Coloccini will line up in central defense against Stoke on Saturday afternoon and he was even in good form at Sunderland in that first 45 minutes.
But if we are to move away from the bottom of the league then we must put a string of wins together – and soon too.
