Local Lad Explains What’s Needed To Win Every Game


Rafa Benitez drums into his players before every single game that the opponents must be respected and that the lads cannot expect an easy game.

We have teams both home and away playing near their best form against Newcastle and that’s likely to happen with Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Certainly their players are looking forward to playing at the famous St. James’ Park in front of over 50,000 fans against probably the best team in the league.

After all, they have nothing to lose with Newcastle the favorites to win almost every game we play this season.

But local Paul Dummett knows the lads must play as a team and at or near their best – and if they do that then they have a good chance of winning on Saturday.

This is what the Kenton lad had to say in the Chronicle today:

“We are confident that every game we go into we can win.” “The message is always that if we work as a team we can beat any team in this league.”

“On paper, we have one of the best teams.” “As long as we have a good team work ethic then we’ll win the majority of the games.”

“Hopefully, we can keep on doing that until the end of the season.”

“I wasn’t aware of the possible record (possible 10 wins in a row on Saturday) until after the Leeds game.” “But you definitely want to be part of a team that makes history.”

“For any team to win that many games in a row is massive.” “We just need to carry on and with the squad we’ve got we should be capable.” “We must keep on going in every game.”

“There’s a cup game coming up too but we have a big enough squad to rotate the team.” “Hopefully we get a positive result in every game we play in.” “We are on a really good run.”

“We just need to keep that going and with a home game in front of our fans we should be able to do it.”

Rafa seems to be doing an excellent job of keeping the players’ feet firmly on the ground during a period of over two months when we have won every single game we have played.

🙂

It’s a lot different to last season when we were losing far too many games under Steve McClaren.

We prefer winning games – we prefer Rafa Benitez.

Howay The Lads!!

    Q the Dummett haters.
    Best left back the club has had for a longtime and still people are pushing for Lazaar. As a defender he is first class, alright he is not an attacking left back but look at our goals against. Surely that’s how a defender should be judged.
    People will continue to knock him but don’t explain their reasons. Maybe it’s a Simpson thing who was slaughtered when he was with us. He didn’t do too bad when he left did he?

    Never mind the Dummet haters, the fun’ll start as the Jib-Jane partnership’s preprandial drinks take effect. We’ll see them becoming confused which is arguing what with the other. And as the post-prandials go down, the entertainment’ll be essential reading.

    Good defender in this league, he seems to have a tight remit under Rafa, rightly so because he just isn’t great going forward, and he’s not exactly a visionary with his forward passing. However, his day job is solid, and I don’t think there’s anyone better at LB at the club right now.

    Looking to the future, though, and I doubt he would fit into a setup as first choice gunning for the top end of the prem, – backup maybe – but then that’s a way off.

    Of course it’s a matter of taste, but McCartney a better poet than Dylan? Ffs, Dylan getting a lauriette was a travesty when Cohen was overlooked. Even then, McCartney’s turned nowt out of any substance for years.

    If anyone’s shown themselves up as being a musical ignoramus it’s you. Given your taste, you’ll no doubt be rushing out to buy Cliff Richard’s Christmas single……… or even Black Lace’s Greatest Hit cd!

    Nah. Revolver all day long. Cutting their teeth on innovative mixing, reversing tracks and all that. Tomorrow Never Knows was a fantastic track back in the day.

    Folk are waxing lyrical about the Beatles and that’s fine by me – the Lennon-McCartney partnership penned some brilliant stuff, as did McCartney when with the Beatles. But, without Lennon and Harrison around to play with him, influence and add musical colour to his works, McCartney’s fallen into that MoR category.

    But, it’s a matter of personal taste and it’s not for me to be foul mouthed about others’ tastes. Maybe it’s time to have a spell off the drink. You never know, you might even begin to like yourself.

    Woah – the abuse starting early tonight – the dangers of Jib new “el cheapo” supermarket hooch.
    Could be in for some laughs later on though when he gets rat arsed – him and substitute Jane will be getting each other mixed up and answering on behalf of the other – as has happened before.
    Was going to come on earlier but there were too many “Five minute argument” bods lurking about.

    Coming on now I’ll probably have to settle for the alternative – “five minutes abuse”.
