Newcastle Midfielder – We’re Still Learning And Improving

Newcastle have two more games before Christmas and both are on the road at Wigan Athletic and at Burton Albion and against the lower placed sides in the league  we would expect two wins – but you never know in this division.

We had a very tough 1-0 win on 1st October at bottom club Rotherham United who only just  recorded their second win of the season against QPR over the weekend, so Newcastle cannot under-estimate any side.

We did that with Huddersfield, Wolves and Blackburn  and lost three home games so we have to be ready for every single game.

Newcastle are coming off one of their best performances of the season in the 4-0 home win over Birmingham City after we surprisingly lost three games in a row and it will be important to keep winning these games.

Isaac Hayden has been talking to the local media and this is what he said as reported by the Shields Gazette when asked if the side is still learning from Rafa:

“That’s the main thing.” “We’re a fairly new group, there are a lot of new players have come into it, and some of them haven’t played in the Championship before.”

“Everyone’s still learning and everyone’s still improving week by week. It was another good performance we’re happy with.”

“The main thing against Birmingham was just getting the three points,” “I think the performances against Hull and Notts Forest especially with nine men deserved a lot more, but it wasn’t to be.”

“Saturday was just about getting the three points and putting a good performance in front of our home fans.”

“At the time it was painful but we had over a week to get over the Forest game, and we’d been training really hard.”

“The group did really well and everyone had been taking on board what the manager wanted and it worked.”

“We were lucky there was no midweek game before Birmingham – that would have been tough on the lads physically.”

“But everyone’s recovered really well, and we’re ready and raring to go against Wigan and Burton.”

It’s important to keep winning games so we can start to open up a points gap between us and the rest of the teams.

Second placed Brighton are at Blackburn tonight and Leeds play 3rd placed Reading at home so those could be tough games for the two clubs chasing Newcastle in the league.

    Jurgen Klopp is said to be targeting defensive reinforcements at Anfield next month, as he looks to become the first Merseyside boss to deliver the league title since 1990.
    Liverpool sent a representative to scout Lascelles during last weekend’s 4-0 win over Birmingham at St James’s Park. And it is understood that they will watch the United captain again in the coming weeks, with a view to potentially making a bid for Lascelles in the winter window.

    Bid what you like Klopp, if you think you can prise our captain away, you’ve got another think coming.

    In actual fact, to improve the bindipper’s defensive record, he could do worse than enquire about Krull.
    Karius is pretty poor.

    That Dwight on Tyne one is really good. Before each chorus loops round it could do the build up section where it goes…

    Tyne, won’t, take, my, loooooveee, awaaayyy… (or alternate new words for this build up part). Then straight into some repeats of Dwight on time.

    Be a really good one to sing that at the match.

    A quiet day on the blog – even Ed is having a lie in 🙂
    I have to say of all the suggestions for a Gayle song Lindisfarne’s suggestion this morning of ‘Dwight on Tyne’ is my favourite. A simple chant that you could hear the crowd singing – some of the others while clever lyrics are a little complex for a football chant.
