Chancel Mbemba thinks the massive following Newcastle United will have at Villa Park tomorrow – there are 3,000 making the trip – can go a long way to ensuring Newcastle get the 3 points we need to survive the drop.
3,000 is the club’s maximum allocation and the tickets of course sold out rather quickly as the fans do everything they can to try to ensure we remain in the Premier League – after another nightmare season.
But it could even have a happy ending.
Chancel Mbemba – appreciative of the fans
Chancel is a favorite of the fans for his cultured play at the back in this his very first season on Tyneside – and he is very appreciative of what the fans are doing in supporting the team.
This is what the 21 year-old said on the Newcastle web-site:
“It’s absolutely amazing, really touching, and I want to thank the fans very much for their support.”
“When you are out there working hard, it is an added motivation. You’re running your legs off, absolutely exhausted, but that motivation makes you work even harder.”
“You don’t want to give up on those brilliant fans.” “We need 3 points.”
“It will be a difficult game, we are under no illusions of that. Playing bottom of the league is never easy but we need to make sure we work very hard in the build-up and on the day.”
“I hope, and I believe, that we can go there and get those 3 points.”
“We need to keep working, though. We have two big fights ahead of us and we need to try and get the 3 points when we travel to Aston Villa.”
Newcastle have won two of their last four games and it would be exactly what’s needed if we can make that three wins in the last five games.
Then all we would presumably have to do is to beat Tottenham at home in the final game of the season to stay in the Premier League and keep Rafa at Newcastle.
Sounds good to us.
Howay The Lads!!
