Promotion Is In Our Hands – It’s Ours To Mess Up


Isaac Hayden has been interviewed today in the Chronicle and he probably has it right when he says promotion is in Newcastle’s hands.

If we can keep up the pace we have created in the first 29 games with 62 points we will end up with around 98 points at the end of the season and that’s enough to get us an automatic promotion spot back to the Premier League.

If we cannot do that in the final 17 games (36 points)  then we probably deserve not to go back – but everything seems to be going well enough for Newcastle this season, although we have had our shock results.

Isaac Hayden – it’s ours to mess up

The team spirit seems excellent and today Grant Hanley has talked about how the lads stick together during the bad times and that there are no real egos in the dressing room as the lads understand the team and the results are all important.

This is some of what Issac has said today in what was a lengthy interview in the Chronicle:

“As long as we can keep winning our games it’s in our hands.”  “It’s ours to mess up.”

“If we don’t play the way we should do and don’t put in the effort we did against Derby, we will come unstuck.”

“As long as we keep putting in the effort and the intensity, and create the chances we created last week we will be OK.”

“We also want to minimize the amount of chances for other teams.”

“If we do that we will win more games than we lose or draw.”

Newcastle need a win tomorrow at Wolves and if we can do that it would be an excellent 3 points for us and keep us top of the table, whatever Brighton do at home against Burton Albion.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Wolves?

    He’s actually one of skys better pundits in my opinion.

    He just doesn’t think we’ll hammer the opposition every week like some of our fans do and he’s right.
