Georginio Wijnaldum has been interviewed in the Chronicle today and he’s showing leadership by looking at things realistically at Newcastle – and they don’t look good.
We never expected to be in this position at the end of this year after we spent £52M on four new players in the summer, but we are 3rd bottom and haven’t looked much better than a relegation side this season either – except in some of the big games.
Georginio Wijnaldum – we must keep fighting
Next up is a tough game against Arsenal on Saturday at the Emirates and the pundits think this has to be nothing more than an easy Arsenal – with Newcastle now odds on to be relegated with Aston Villa and Sunderland after picking up one point int he last 3 games.
Gini say that not only have the players to keep fighting in this difficult situation, but also the Newcastle fans do as well and keep supporting the lads:
“Even when things don’t look good you don’t stop fighting.” “If we do stop now, it may as well be all over now.” “We still have 19 games to play and the only thing we can do is keep fighting.”
“Giving up is not an option. I hope the supporters don’t give up on us either.” “It’s difficult to say things to them.” “If you look at the table we are in the relegation zone.”
“I hope they still want to support us because we need them.” “They are fantastic that they still come in great numbers to away games.”
Gini is a good player and seems to have some good leadership skills too and could well be a future captain of Newcastle if we can hold onto him in the summer.
Not many fans think we will win on Saturday.
