Newcastle’s Opportunity To Get Back On Track Against Toffees

8:58 am, Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 3 Comments

Daryl Janmaat has been one of Newcastle’s more consistent performers this season so far and he seems to be upbeat after the side has 7 points from the last three games and that follows the disastrous defeats against Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

Daryl is upbeat and he reflects on some strange results over the weekend and particularly Norwich City overtaking Newcastle in the league table, after their amazing 2-1 win at Old Trafford.


Daryl Janmaat in action on Saturday

Daryl has been interviewed in the Chronicle today and he was asked if Newcastle still had momentum after the disappointing 1-1 draw with Aston Villa – a game we were expected to win:

“I think so. Next Saturday we have a good opportunity to beat Everton and get another three points. “It’s a nice game to look forward to.It’s still a good run that Newcastle are on.”

“Last week against Spurs we would have taken a point and against Villa a win, so if you turn them around then it looks better.”

“It’s important to be out of the bottom three, certainly. We must try to build on that now and try to climb up the table.”

“I think every team in this league can get a win every week.” “Every win is a big thing in the Premier League, it’s not easy to win in this country.”

“Just look at this weekend’s results with Manchester United losing at home to Norwich, and some other strange results, so it’s never easy to win a game in the Premier League.”

It’s an opportunity for Newcastle to get 3 points against a good Everton side on Saturday in our second last game of what has been a very poor year for Newcastle United.

We are then at West Brom on Monday afternoon and two wins to finish off the year would be very good.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Blofal…that horrible football has been coached into them!

    …it’s not like every single good player got sold just like that and we didn’t bring in any good ones.

    I don’t think any think Ashley policy is one to be proud of but these managers that come here needs to open their mouth for one think and start doing their job.

    We need techinically gifted players blessed with pace. Our squad still isn’t fast enough. We need pace upfront and down the wings. And our passing has to be one of the worst in the league surely. We are very inconsistent and need players that are consistent like Ayoze and Mbemba. We should replace Sissoko with a proper pacey out and out winger and move Sissoko to the middle or even the bench and come on as an impact sub. He is too inconsistent to be a regular performer.

    We also need defenders especially a CB and a LB but at times of crisis like these we need proven players and not placing our blind faith on French players who are usually not up for the fight.

    I know it’s not a priority right now but in the summer I hope we go after Sam Byron of Leeds as he is a talented RB and one that could push Janmaat for a starting spot. But I would like that once we sort the other weak areas we have all over the pitch.

    Enough of these bad and untested French players FFS!!!! What is it with Newcastle and their fetish for French players!! It’s beyond ridiculous!

    Proven players is what we need ASAP or we will go down, it’s as simple as that. My God this club is retarded honestly.
