Steve McClaren has given his press conference today for the FA Cup 3rd round tie at Watford tomorrow and Steve says he will play his strongest team – but may need to rest some players who have a few injury niggles.
Newcastle have a home game against Manchester United on Tuesday night and that’s presumably why the head coach will need to rest some players tomorrow to ensure they are fit for Tuesday.
Anyway – that’s the party line today.
Steve McClaren – gave his press conference today
This is some of that Steve McClaren has said in his press conference today:
” We are coming up against a Watford team in very good form, so it won’t be easy to win the game. But we will go there to win it.”
” We’ve got one or two players who have got niggles and it’s a big risk, so we need to decide if we play them.”
” Tomorrow will be the strongest team we can put out without taking a risk on anyone.”
” With the position we are in, it doesn’t matter if it’s cup or league. It’s an important game and one we want to go and win.”
” We need a win. We need to gather momentum and tomorrow is an opportunity to do that. Arsenal is the standard and the level.”
It would be nice to get a win at Watford tomorrow since we have so few of those over the last 12 months – never mind just this season.
Two in three fans think we will lose this game.
