Here is Steve McClaren’s interview on BBC after the game and Steve is right when he says it was a huge win for the Newcastle players – who he admitted were very nervous at the beginning.
Our lads should be proud that we have beaten a Liverpool side that has been lauded with some of their great results since Jurgen Klopp took over.
There has been huge pressure on Steve McClaren and he has delivered today along with the players – and yes – we had some luck.
But Steve also says the lads still need to get more consistency – they’ve proved they can play well – when the fully apply themselves.
Great shot of Steve McClaren and Gini Wijnaldum today
They also experienced the unbelievable Newcastle fans today – that when they do play well and then have the good fortune to win the game against a top club like Liverpool – the fans go crazy.
It was a great win today for Newcastle United and hopefully it will give our players renewed confidence.
