Rafa has completed his press conference for the game at home to Huddersfield Town tomorrow.
This is our most important game of the season and if we can get all 3 points tomorrow that puts us on 35 points from 31 games.
That’s just 5 points short of Rafa’s target of 40 points and probable safety from relegation.
David Wagner – Terriers’ talented manager
This is what Rafa has said about Huddersfield and the tactics before the game tomorrow:
“It’s always easy to talk before the game. The mood is positive. We have worked tactically and we must make sure we approach the game with the right mentality.”
“When you get closer to the end, every game is important. It is a massive game for both teams.”
“It will be easier if we win, but we have to keep going regardless. We are not safe if we win – it will be a big step forward, but we want 40 points.”
“Huddersfield are not a team that will attack all the time as they are well organized and counter-attack. They are aggressive but patient.”
“Both teams will try to win and it will be interesting to see how we manage them. Forget about the position in the table, that is what I told my players.”
“Huddersfield are a good team in the PL – they don’t feel the same pressure as top sides in the division.”
“They can play and enjoy it as they have nothing to lose.”
Hopefully, the Newcastle players can carry on from where they left off against the Saints.
But we have a feeling this will be a much more difficult game tomorrow.
But the fans are confident – let’s hope the 82% are right about the result.
