Newcastle’s Swiss International center-back Fabian Schar has come in from the cold in the last four games in which Newcastle have amassed a very decent 9 points.
But after three successive wins, we were a bit sloppy in defense and in attack on Saturday and lost 3-0 to West Ham.
The good thing is that we have a game – a tough game – coming up on Wednesday night against an in-form Everton side, where our players have a chance to make amends.
Fabian Schar – hopes to make amends at Goodison Park on Wednesday
This is what 26-year-old Fabian Schar has told the Chronicle:
“We didn’t start too badly against West Ham.”
“The first half was OK but we conceded the first goal and tried to get back in the game.”
“We had some good chances to score.” “But in the second half they doubled their lead and it was very difficult for us.”
“It wasn’t our best game. We wanted to keep up our winning run in front of our fans and had such a good month.”
“It is disappointing but we will try to forget it and move on to the next one.”
“We have another game on Wednesday and we have to keep moving forward.”
“Football moves fast and we have good weeks behind us. Now we move on.”
“There is disappointment for the fans.”
“Maybe the way we played sometimes we expect more and we will try to get back to our other games.”
Fabian could turn into an excellent acquisition for Rafa Benitez, because he’s an intelligent and very experienced defender.
He also offers Newcastle an attacking option when he brings the ball quickly out of defense.
With Jamaal Lascelles now fully fit it will be interesting to see what the back four turns out to be for the Everton game.
