Steve McClaren has talked about how important patience will be in tomorrow’s game against Aston Villa and he is asking for his players and the crowd to remain patient.
Aston Villa won their first game at Bournemouth in the very first league game of the season, but since then in the last 15 games they have picked up 12 defeats and three draws for a paltry 3 points.
Steve McClaren – the key word is patience
So they will be looking for their second win of the season at St. James’ Park tomorrow and the first win under new manager Remi Garde, who has told his players it’s do or die – and that they have to beat Newcastle tomorrow.
This is what Steve McClaren has said in his press conference today and he has emphasized that patience on the Newcastle side of things tomorrow will be all important:
“We always want to win the game in the first 20 minutes.” “But there are times when you need to wait until the very end and that goes for everybody, not just the players.“
“We’ve got to make sure we remain patient and ensure we don’t let our opponents frustrate us.” “We’re sixth in the form guide over the past eight games. Consistency is key and getting consistent performances can give us a platform to push on.“
“Against Tottenham and Liverpool we got our performance levels back to where we would like and now its just about maintaining that.“
“The key to that is us and the crowd. The key word for everybody tomorrow is patience.”
Seven in ten Newcastle fans think we can win this game tomorrow and go into the Christmas holidays with three wins in a row.
Howay The Lads!!
