Martin Dubravka seems like a great find for Newcastle and it’s almost certain he will sign full time for the club this summer.
But that depends on Martin continuing the fine form he has shown so far in the final 8 games of the season.
He has brought in new skills to the side and Rafa has said both Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow have benefited from Martin coming in – and especially Karl Darlow.
Dubravka has good leadership abilities and controls his box very well and he’s also very good with his feet.
Martin Dubravka – confidently taking cross during his debut
He has been interviewed in tomorrow’s program for the vital game against Huddersfield – and that match may prove a more difficult challenge than we think.
Here’s some of what Dubravka has said in tomorrows program:
“You need to find a way to show yourself, to the fans, the club. But I didn’t think of it in this way, you know.”
“I thought, ‘just go on the pitch and play football’, what I love.”
“I’m happy that the debut against Manchester United was probably one of the best games I’ve played in.”
“It will stay in my mind forever.”
“I didn’t want to go off the pitch. You could see we were very happy. You can hear the crowd.”
“I didn’t want to go to the dressing room, but I wanted to celebrate with my teammates.”
“I wanted to stay a little bit longer and enjoy these feelings. That’s why you play football.”
“It’s about the passion.”
It’s been a very long three weeks since we beat the Saints and all that matters now is that we can get all 3 points tomorrow afternoon.
Anything less against Huddersfield will be a huge disappointment with over 80% of fans expecting a win.
This is the most important game of the season for us so far.
