Patience Pays Off For This International Star

Fabian Schar is an excellent player, and he has finally got his chance in the first team as a starter, and nobody cannot say he hasn’t taken it with both hands (feet?).

We knew he was a top-rated player in the Swiss International side and he had a good World Cup in Russia.

Fabian didn’t grumble when he didn’t get much playing time at the beginning of the season.

But he trained hard, and when he finally got the chance to come on for the injured Jamaal Lascelles in November against Watford, he did well, and we got our first win.

That must have been some feeling for Schar who did play exceptionally well in the second half after Watford had spurned several good chances in the first half.

But we won the game, and since then we have played six games and won three of them.

Federico Fernandez is fit again, and the Argentine has been a revelation at the back for us this season, and now we have Frenchman Florian Lejeune just waiting for his chance to come back into the first team.

So we now have a wealth of center-back talent with all of them in good form at the moment – and fit too.

Fabian Schar – has had to be patient on Tyneside

Schar is very competitive and wants to stay in the Newcastle starting eleven over the Christmas games.

This is what he has said in the Chronicle today:

“I knew before what qualities I have. Just at the beginning, I had to be patient to get a chance, and now I have had some quite good games.”

“I try to help my team by doing my job, and that’s all I can do. We know how hard it’s going to be now over the next few weeks with a lot of important games. You have to take every point you can get.”

“To get three points at Huddersfield is great. I’m really happy for the team and the fans. Their support was fantastic.”

“Of course, it’s important for all the teams like us. These games are massive.” 

“When you get three points away it’s even bigger. I think we can be pretty happy after this game.”

“We’ve now got another important game against Fulham.”

“In the first 45 minutes we didn’t play really good. Also, second half we can improve a lot of things.”

“At the end we got the result and three points, which was what we wanted. It was a really important win.”

“We did a really good job in defence. All the players did their jobs, and that’s so important for us.”

Let’s hope we can make it our fourth win in eight games when we host Fulham on Saturday.

We must win this game – the last one before Christmas.

The players should see it as fan appreciation day and win the game for all of us.

    Over the years Ashley always nips away on holiday to Florida when there’s news afoot or an announcement from his Admin.. usually, and in the past , its always been negatives.

    Let’s hope there’s no furore this time and something positive is announced.

    Something in the Air.

    I think the tinker man will play on the counter and be happy with a draw but hoping they nick it. I think we’ll get 1 and when they come out we’ll get a second.

    2-0 Rondon to score

    Maybe I’ve missed something but have we seen anything that indicates that an offer had actually been submitted?

    I may be wrong, but seem to recollect talk of two potential buyers having ‘matched’ Ashley’s asking price and we’ve also seen references to no offers having been submitted. Could all of that be translated into suggesting that two potential buyers have demonstrated they have the money to merit being considered for further consideration? But could it be that they haven’t undertaken due diligence or if they have, have not made any offer?

    Yes, it’s early but the Club appears to be worth more to Ashley than it may seem to potential investors. But in the meantime, if there’s no serious negotiating or offer, then Ashley ain’t likely to sanction any meaningful money for strengthening.

    I have a feeling that OGS may do OK at Man Yoo
    He was one of the most successful coaches of Man U’s
    He had some brilliant results in Europe with Molde
    His time at Cardiff was a blip – they had a shite squad

    In a short time you are going to be embarrassed and outed as a Liar for all to see.

    You say I took over your account and posted lies in your name !

    What really happened is you made posts threatening to report someone to Ed ..you then come on here saying someone else had said it and took over your account to tell lies in your name .

    I know you made that all up when you then started saying Online Guy took over your account and told lies in your name .

    I didn’t.

    I’m faced with you, a Liar , and a fantasist, calling me a Liar, when you made the whole thing up yourself.

    Anyway your about to be embarrassed.

    I told you I could prove your a Liar using my name to cover your yellow back .. keep reading.

    It’s on its way.

    I have it from as close to the horses mouth as one can get yesterday word of mouth to me personally that the trigger just to start the conversation with Ashley was £300 million to £325 million .

    That has been triggered twice. 100%

    I have wrote the transcript of the conversation yesterday but it’s too hot and will cause a problem.

    I don’t know how these newspaper hacks earn a living in writing in conjecture and fantasy that reads to me like absolute shite.

    They have nothing and when you read it and reflect on it they have told you nothing.

    Fsa ashey

    He also said “I can’t believe Newcastle Fans are not taking this seriously ”

    He’s telling you something right there .

    So I think your false news to me and the blog saying ” Graves didn’t back me up ” is the wrong way to read into what he has actually said.

    Savvy ?
