Newcastle Defender Fit – We Need All 3 Points At Chelsea

7:37 am, Friday, February 12th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Daryl Janmaat picked up a leg injury last Saturday playing against West Brom, but he’s said it was just a nick on the leg – and he’s  going to be fit to play tomorrow at Chelsea.

The game is another very important one for Newcastle’s immediate future in the world of football – and we need to get something out of this game – if we are to start pulling away from the relegation zone.


Daryl Janmaat – we need another win

Famous Dutch coach Guus Hiddink is now back at Chelsea doing another caretaker job until the end of the season – and Daryl has talked to the local press and he started off talking about the 69 year-old:

“It’s great to see Guus back in English football. I like him. He’s gone into Chelsea and he’s not losing games.”

“Hiddink is a good trainer. He’s had a great career.” “He’s doing well at Chelsea. They are doing better than at the beginning.”

“Maybe he’s drawn too many, but we’ll see how it goes for us. We got the win against West Brom and hopefully, we can get something at Chelsea.”

“We’re going for it – we want 3 points because we have to go for the win. We need it.”

“We were better than West Brom. It was a really important 3 points. We had chances to score the second goal – we wanted to score the second goal.”

“Unfortunately, we didn’t get it, but 3 points was more important.” “I think we played well. It was a good game. It shouldn’t have been that close.”

“I think we were much better and deserved the win. It was important.”

“We need to look at every game,” “We need more points – we know that.” “But if we play like this, especially at home, we can do a good job.”

“Hopefully, we can get more points the next few weeks.

While home form is going to be very important tor us during the run-in, we also have to start picking up some wins on the road.

It would help if we turn up for these game too – which didn’t happen at Everton.

We’d be delighted if we can get something at Stamford Bridge tomorrow – and a win would be simply terrific – especially since we have our next game in a long 18 days time at Stoke City.

    From Previous……Because Ed did it again!

    The tragedy started over 7 years ago, when he bought the club and started making such astute signings as JFK, Wise, Pardew etc.

    If we were to go down this season ( I don’t think we will) would it be a tragedy or poetic justice for the man who ripped out the heart and soul of the club, destroyed the fan base and replaced it (still replacing it) with peace loving families who quietly melt into the SD background???

    Tragedy, I believe, is when you’ve got no soul and you lose control….

    However, Grease is, apparently, the word.

    Ah ha, the Bee Gee’s, classic, or was it Atomic Kitten you are referring to, now that would be tragic.

    Still confident of a win at Stamford Bridge like. but by that I mean we have the players to win, but what will Macca do?

    Did Steps do a version of Tradgedy also? Now that really was a Tradgedy.

    Dial a cliche Daryll.
    He’d be better served saving his wind for this evening, we need him to get up and down the side all evening. Same for Aaron’s or whoever is on the left.cos we need to get on the front foot again. Chelsea love to reduce the pace to pedestrian and get control. I’m hoping SM has realised for good that we can’t sit back…
