A Win Against Everton Will Do Wonders For Players And Fans Alike

We are hoping that Jamaal Lascelles can return to the team tomorrow in the vital home game against an improving Everton side.

Our defense has almost fallen apart in the last five games as there have been too many mistakes made.

Those mistakes has led to Newcastle conceding 15 goals in just five games, and we must tighten up big time at the back.

The good news is that with Dwight Gayle coming into some form and forming an improving partnership with Joselu up front we are starting to score some goals.

Both Joselu and Gayle scored on Saturday in the 3-2 defeat to Leicester City at home.

Joselu – has scored 3 goals this season

The players (and fans) cannot let their heads drop and what’s needed is a win to lift the spirits of everybody associated with the club.

A win would do wonders tomorrow night.

This is what Joselu has said to the local press as reported in the Northern Echo today

“We are a good team as well, and we have to remember that,. “We have good players, a good stadium and good supporters.”

“I think it was an unlucky game, because, in the end, we conceded an own goal. But that is football.”

“We need to keep fighting and thinking about Wednesday. We’ll try to get the three points.”

“We need to stay positive, always, because if we go down, it’s very difficult to go up again.”

“We try to stay positive, all of us, and tomorrow is a new day. We think about Everton.”

“All the strikers need to score goals, and me especially,” “It was a good moment. We started well and opened the game well.”

“But I would have preferred to take the three points and keep fighting for the team. We keep going.”

“The strikers need to score goals, and I scored. I was also happy that Dwight Gayle scored, because we played up front together.”

“I try to keep fighting in every game and work hard. We need players like this. After that, if we score goals, it’s better.”

“I have played three or four times with Gayle, and I think we play well together.”

“The manager takes the decision, and we try to do our best every game. I’m very happy for me and for Dwight as well, but we need the points.”

We have to remember the goal this season is to survive and get to 40 points as soon as we can.

And some wins over the Christmas period will do wonders for the players and their confidence.

We just have to hope that we can get a win soon and certainly Jamaal Lascelles back in the defense maybe with Paul Dummett at left-back will help strengthen the defense.

Newcastle have to stop leaking so many goals through a lack of concentration.

Keep the faith.

    If Everton have had a good look at our
    goalies the shots from outside the box will
    come raining in from Rooney and Sigurdsson.

    If Lascelles can come back into the squad and Lejeune plays with the form he had in the first few weeks then provided Gayle can knock one (two why not three… okay carried away a little therte 😉 we should be able to win against Everton.

    I am serious. They leak goals at the back (29 conceded on the season) and don’t let their improvement the last 3 games fool you. One was against a woeful Westham, another against Huddersfield which has 5 fewer goals than us on the season (11 total) and the Blues got the exact same result (1-1 draw) that we got to Liverpool back in October.

    Teams like Huddersfield Town and BHA are not on any more solid ground than we were when were mid-table and Everton has yet to prove they can sustain their recovery. My last prediction went woefully wrong (thought Watford were there for the picking) but honestly think this will be a tight match.

    Time to face it. We are stuck with Ashley as there is no news on the takeover front and its 12 Dec and that means there will be no change before January. Time to live with the fact that we must support the squad we’ve got. and it’s a squad that can beat the Blues (besides my mate is an Everton fan from Merseyside and humiliating Everton and returned has been Rooney in St. James would be very nice early Christmas present)

    Stop the griping. Rafa’s going to stick with Joselu (we’ll probably sell Mitro – wasted talent there but I’m not calling the shots or squad selection) whether Shelvey’s given a run is a question for punters and we can win regardless.
