Tino Asprilla Praises Passionate Newcastle

7:18 am, Wednesday, April 20th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 6 Comments

Newcastle put in a brave and passionate performance last night against an in-form Manchester City side to get what Tino Asprilla calls a massive point.

Certainly if we can repeat that performance in our final four games of the seaosn we could even survive the drop.

The Benitez effect is starting to take effect and we looked a good strong compact side last night.

Our players deserve great credit for that and they were little short of magnificent on the night.

    “Whether this revival is too late remains to be seen – and retaining Steve McClaren for February’s Spain trip and the following two games may still be our undoing – but at least United are no longer sleepwalking towards relegation and alienating supporters in the process.”

    Leicester have a horrible run in compared to Spurs. Feel like we need to win at anfield, Spurs could be playing for the title last game and who have mackems got, Watford!

    Spot on Tino.
    A passionate performance largely inspired (IMO) by the first half attacking intent of Townsend. Who said he can only cut in and shoot ?He goes both ways will equal ability and has the fullback guessing every time.

    If only McLaren had listened to Dennis Twice….

    Speaking of the wispy-forelocked fail merchant, I wonder why the trip went ahead at all. It didn’t do anything for quite quite few of the so-called “important” players who ended up spending large periods resting their weary eyes, and the run out for the academy players were irrelevant in the context of what the break should have been achieving. Just shows that Charnley dragged his heels getting a replacement in – allegedly even waiting for someone to approach him ( if the stories of Rafa getting in touch with nufc are true)

    The more I think about it, the more I think a spurs needing to win to have a shot at the title could actually be to our advantage. Unless they score early, they will be forced to commit men forward, take more risks, etc. which we could exploit

    I personally think we’ll know our fate before that match anyway
