One of our bargain buys of the summer – Mohamed Diame – tried a beautiful chip shot in the second half on Tuesday night against Wolves and the ball hit the cross-bar.
It was a terrific effort and that potential third goal would have killed the game for Newcastle.
We did go close a number of times in the second half but in the end settled for the 2-0 win and now entertain Preston North End in the 4th round.
Mohamed Diame – wants to score more goals
That’s a good draw for us but we have to remember Preston beat Bournemouth 3-2 on Tuesday night at Bournemouth after extra time – so they will be no pushover.
It turns out Mohamed has been working on his shooting and trying to get moire goals for Newcastle.
This is is some of what he has said in the Chronicle today:
“Yeah it was unlucky, but that’s the way to score more goals. I need to try more things like that.”
“It didn’t come off against Wolves but hopefully it can happen on Saturday and I am saving myself for then.”
“I’m getting there slowly, things always come eventually if you work hard. I need to keep working hard and all the other stuff will come.”
“I am confident about this.” “The team is in a good way and will have a good game with Aston Villa.”
We’re not sure whether Mohamed will keep his place tomorrow in the number 10 role or whether Ayoze Perez will get the start in his place.
What do you think?
