We dare say there´s been a few long faces of Newcastle fans this year which has to be one of the worst years ever for Newcastle United – at least as far as the results go.
We had a poor end to last season when we lost nine of the last eleven games and we haven´t done very well this season with just two wins and six defeats in the first twelve games which have earned us just 10 points.
Steve McClaren – looks like he spotted a few long faces
Steve McClaren is trying to turn things around and we hope he can – and he´s talked today about not wanting to see long faces among the fans:
“We can’t have long faces around here. We are in football for the togetherness and the banter. It’s about the work on the field.”
“It is serious and we are professional and we do have a big responsibility at a big football club. But you have to enjoy your work. Leicester seem to be doing that and it is showing on the field.”
“That’s how we should go about our business, enjoy it but be effective.” “I didn’t realise that it was January that we last won away from home.”
The one before that came in November so that’s two wins in one year!”“They are hard to play against and hard to beat, they are good on the break and very quick.”
“That takes some doing actually. Maybe at Bournemouth we wouldn’t have won that game five weeks ago. We weren’t playing well but we fought for their lives.”
Those who wanted rid fo Alan Pardew got their wish at the end of last year but its been little short of a disaster at Newcastle since he left.
Wins are what we need and wins will definitely put the smiles back on the faces of Newcastle fans.
So we need a win today at home to Leicester and if we can play somewhere near our best then that’s not impossible.
And that would be the third win in five games for us.
