Matt Ritchie had another good game for Newcastle yesterday and he scored our third goal and has been playing very well for us all season.
But on the Newcastle website after the 3-0 home win over Ipswich yesterday Matt admitted he’s been a little unhappy that he’s missed a few chances of late.
That will probably come as a surprise to most fans, since Matt is already a huge favorite at the club and has settled his family on Tyneside.

But it’s also an indication of the high standards the former Bournemouth winger has about his game.
This is what Matt has said on the Newcastle web-site:
“I’ve been beating myself up a little bit. I’ve had a couple of chances of late – I had one against Norwich late on and I had one in the first half as well that I probably should have done a bit better with,”
“I was delighted to get the goal in the end, but most importantly the three points and put them out of sight.”
“All our games are big. Obviously the league is a priority, but we want to go as far as we can in the cup competitions as well, and we’ve got the squad to do that.”
“I’m really looking forward to that. We’d go into the last eight if we win against Preston, so it’s a great opportunity for us.”
Matt has so far played 14 games for Newcastle with 3 goals and 4 assists.
