Steve McClaren has given his press conference for the important game at Everton tomorrow night and of course the first thing he has said is that Everton are a fantastic squad – well just in case we lose the game.
But Steve and the lads have to start producing the results now and it all starts tomorrow night at Goodison Park.
Steve McClaren – gave his press conference today
Here’s some of what Steve said today on Doumbia and on the Everton game:
“Everton have got a fantastic squad with very good players and, on their day, they can beat anybody.”
“Our signings show a statement of intent. We have a very good squad. The club and the players needed these deals.”
‘We’ve done some great business. 4 very good signings. I’m absolutely delighted with what we’ve done. It shows Newcastle’s ambition.”
“We’re hoping Doumbia will be available for the Everton game. It’s touch and go but if not tomorrow then Saturday.”
Here’s the games we have in February although the Manchester City game will have to be rearranged because of their League Cup final on the weekend of Sunday 28th February.
Wed 03 19:45 A Everton
Sat 06 15:00 H West Brom
Sat 13 17:30 A Chelsea
Sun 28 12:00 H Manchester City *
* to be rearranged
In those three upcoming games we really need to somehow get two wins on the board – although that could be very difficult – we’d take 5 points.
The next game is not until 2nd March at Stoke City so the longer we go without wins, the longer we will stay in the bottom three.
Mike Ashley will want to see some return for the £81M the owner has spent on players since Steve McClaren arrived and surely that’s not asking too much.
We really hope Steve and the players can produce the goods.
What do you think?
