Newcastle Defender – It’s Up To Us Now

There’s a very good interview with Daryl Janmaat who seems to have accepted he is going nowhere this summer and wants to stick in and help Newcastle do really well this season in the Championship and get immediately promoted.

We must say we have been impressed with Daryl’s attitude in his last few interviews and this one is not difference.


Daryl Janmaat – Newcastle’s left-back

Daryl have ben interviewed on nufcTV for the game tomorrow against Huddersfield and the Dutchman basically says it’s up to Newcastle to get the 3 points:

This is what Daryl told nufcTV when he was filmed at the Benton training ground:

“The first game at Fulham, we knew it was supposed to be a tough game and it was.”

“We were not at our best level and so we have to come back and do better if we want to get results in this league.”

“Everybody sees –  this is a tough league.”

“I don’t think any wake-up call  was needed, I think everybody had a good feeling and felt ready – but now we have to make sure that we kick back now and get 3 points on Saturday.”

“Yes, it’s always like that – if you have a defeat then you want to turn that around as soon as possible.”

“Now we have 3 games in a week and we have to make sure we get three good performances and 3 wins if possible.”

“I think we have to look to ourselves and we know that if we are really good, we have a good team, and we can beat everybody – we are probably one of the best teams in the league.”

“But we have to make sure we’re good and everybody has to be ready and we can beat them and get 3 points.”

“It’s a big boost to have St James Park sold out, but we have to make it a good afternoon with 3 points.”

We need to start winning games – and a good time to start is tomorrow against the Terriers.

Comments welcome.
