Player Pays Warm Tribute To Newcastle Fans


Another away game and more fantastic support for Newcastle United as 5600 fans made the journey to Deepdale in Lancashire for Saturday’s game against Preston North End.

And they were rewarded by a resilient and fighting Newcastle side who managed to take all 3 points against  an impressive Preston side who pushed the Magpies all the way.

What with sold out games at St. James’ Park and the away allocation for road games quickly sold out, the Geordie fans are showing quite clearly why they are the best in the business.

And Newcastle are currently a second division side.

A favorite of the Newcastle crowd this season is new arrival – American DeAndre Yedlin – who had another  solid game at right back for us on Saturday.

After the game the Seattle-born youngster paid tribute to those dedicated fans:

“I hope this run continues and I hope we keep winning games. But in this league, anything can happen, so we can’t get too comfortable, we’ve just got to keep fighting.”

“The fans have been unbelievable – the amount of fans that come on the road is incredible, and then obviously our home support is top of the league.”

“So we’re very fortunate to have the fans that we have. As a whole club, we’re doing all right now, and we just need to keep it going.”

We can’t stop now, we can’t get too excited about it, because it’s a long season and anything can happen.”

Good words there from the young US International full-back and the fans deserve that recognition – they’ve been fantastic for Newcastle this season.

    BandB……….. Low grade sarcasm is one thing , by the way in response to being called an idiot. Your sick and demented rantings and unprovoked attacks on other bloggers followed by accusations of misogyny and threats of police action surely make you the most dispicable type of poster and human being.

    just to go back to townsend and which side he plays…modern players have gotten greedy for goals,townsend is moaning about playing on left,i think because he’ll not be able to cut in and shoot,getting himself in the limelight,whats wrong just being like nobby solano for example and be a good supply line to your striker from the left when your a left footer,or right when right foorted,same can be said for atsu tbh…..when the manager picks u if u play left supply,when u play right get involved cuttin and have a few shots….it is a bit of pet hate of mine this inverted wingers thing,especially when the players complain.

    IMO Atsu is a Striker and is slumming it on the wing to get game time. Not sure he would be very effective at covering the full back in the PL.

    Hibbett, don’t go marra. It’s just a blog after all and we all get targeted at some time. Give it back or just ignore it mate, no need to call it a day.
    Looking forward to seeing Atsu play again this weekend. The more he plays he grows in confidence and is starting to look the biz. He’ll ease the pain of losing Ritchie for sure. Hoping for another confidence boosting big win against Cardiff to boost that gd even more. No doubt Welshie wants us to kick their butts big time too. 🙂

    Joking aside i think Cardiff will be alright this season, Warnock is a bit like Holloway they both know the championship inside out, those two I’ve got a lot of time for.

    Crooked Hilary Clinton has behaved inappropriately with her emails, she regularly accuses poor Donald of sexism and misogyny, she is corrupt and manipulating and is totally insincere whilst her whole persona and behaviour reeks of double standards. She reminds me of someone but I can’t just think who at the moment.

    Springy.

    Re.Townsend. You’re dead right there. Andros is a winger who can cross a mean ball more often than not. He doesn’t need to be amongst the goals.
    How many goals did Sir Stan score in his long career, and he was one of the finest wingers ever to grace football in this country ?

    a great player makes himself great coz of what he does in any position, not not by the goals or limelight,if townsend was creating chance after chance for strikers…his name would be highlighted anyway.

    Glad to see Yedlin settling in well.

    In regards to the article about Atsu playing this weekend in place of Ritchie, I don’t think Ritchie will be suspended. He has 4 yellow cards in the league and one in the league cup. The league cup yellow doesn’t count towards the accumulation afaik.

    http://www.espnfc.us/player/126500/matt-ritchie

    Stats might be wrong though.

    Making the trek over from the USA and will be at the game this Saturday so looking forward to seeing Atsu or Ritchie or Yedlin running the wings.

    Cup bookings count towards a ban. Maybe you’re thinking of Italy or Spain where cup bookings are classed as separate from league bookings?

    Safe journey over for the game.

    A bit of a dagger to the heart for Swansea – two ex-players combining for Stoke’s goal. Swansea have done well to bounce back from that and equalise – credit where it’s due.

    If Swansea were to get relegated this season would love the Toon to sign Sigurdsson should have signed him from Spurs when we got rid of Cabaye instead of De Jong and Cabella!! What a waste of money that turned out to be for us!!

    Like Yedlin, in fact it’s hard to dislike any toon player at the moment … it’s so much better than when this blog was full of xxxxx is useless blah blah – guess dummett is the scapegoat but at least 70% realise he’s doing a decent job of defending
    On the flip side the blog has become more about slagging each other off … never good, sounds way too much like my inlaws , family – familiarity and all that

    If I may I’d just like to set the record straight in terms of what I’ve supposed to have said. I think I’ve been slightly misquoted at times. Firstly, I didn’t say I couldn’t criticise Benitez because we are “top of the table and playing good football”. I would be the last to say we are “playing good football”. Most of the time we play turgid, defensive football with a big dose of good old hoofball. Other teams play better football than us and we’ve been lucky in a number of games. Also, I didn’t say Benitez was “just in it for the money”. I said that he was attracted to the money he could see on offer and another big pay-day would appeal to his ego. And I’ve never said or implied that I hope we fail. I just don’t like the people who run the club and it’s their perceived success that tarnishes any club’s success overall in my eyes. I’m not looking for validation of my opinions, I really just come on here to vent and get it out of my system. If I was looking for intellectual debate I’d go elsewhere, God knows.
