Jamaal Lascelles is turning out to be an excellent captain for Newcastle, and he’s been in the job for over 18 months now, and he leadership skills both off and on the pitch are there for all to see.
Jamaal has also been playing very well for us, and there has been talk he could even be called up for the England side.
The former Nottingham Forest player knows he still has room to improve and that’s what he’s determined to do under the guidance of his manager Rafa Benitez.
Jamaal has said the team has been playing well without necessarily getting as many points as we have deserved this year.
Jamaal Lascelles – team has been playing well
This is what he said as reported in the Chronicle:
“We put the Liverpool game behind us, and we’re looking forward to the next two,”
“We’ve got Southampton on Saturday and, we have to be really confident going into it.”
“They’re still a tough team, but we’ve been playing some really good football recently, and the boys are really going to look forward to playing against them.”
“We will get our heads down in training and listen to the boss, refresh and have a proper go at the weekend – because we will.”
“We’ll set out to win the game, go for it, and make sure we do win because we need to with the break after.”
After the game tomorrow at home to Southampton we have a three-week break, and the news is that Rafa will take the squad to Spain for a short break and may play a friendly there.
Then on the final day of March, we play at home to Huddersfield and we need another win in that game.
If we can win the next two games we will be on 35 points and in much better shape with 7 games still to play.
