Darren Peacock has been interviewed in the Chronicle today in advance of the legends game between Newcastle United and Manchester United on Sunday at Kingston Park.
Darren is pleased with where Newcastle are this season in the Championship, but he says there are still many tough challenges coming up and the players and the fans cannot get carried away.
Rafa Benitez – he will not get carried away
We do know one man who will not get carried away by anything this season – and that’s Rafa Benitez.
This is some of what Darren has said today:
“There’s always going to be teams like Wolves, Norwich and even Villa, that will try to come here and try to do frustrate Newcastle.”
“The Villa outcome was a disappointment due to the last couple of minutes, but let’s not get carried away with it all – and lets aim for a top three or four at Christmas then see what’s what.”
“Everything depends on injuries, suspensions and form, but it bodes well to what we, what the club wants, and that’s promotion.”
“If they can do that, then it shows what can be done and from a dressing room point of view then you can see they have a great camaraderie in the squad.”
“It’s about getting that balance right and it’s still too early for making any cup predictions.”
“There’s still league games to play between now and Preston, they are more important games before Rafa concentrates on that one.”
Here’s where we are in the league table during the second International break of the season – and we play Preston North End in round 4 of the EFL Cup, after safely negotiating the previous two rounds.
