This Man Epitomizes Newcastle’s Spirit – He’s Been A Bargain Buy

Fabian Schar has been an outstanding player for Newcastle this season since he started to become a regular starter for the side in November.

And we’ve done well in that time in the league, and in 15 games we have taken a decent 21 points.

Fabian played another excellent game for us at Wembley on Saturday against Spurs.

And made a fantastic clearance off the line in the second half, but it was a late goal after 83 minutes that beat us.

We only paid £3M for Schar from Deportivo in the summer – what a bargain buy he’s been.

And Schar is really appreciative of the Newcastle fans – this is what he has said in the Chronicle:

“We played a good game. It was hard to accept defeat at Wembley.”

“Our mentality is important now.

“We must free our minds after January and get ready for the next important weeks.

“We have games coming up against teams we can win against and get something from.

“We have to keep working like we have been and thinking like that I am very positive.”

“They were like always. It is crazy how much they support us.”

“All of the players know how important the fans are, at home and away.”

“They’re always there. It’s big thanks to them again, they are the best fans in football.”

Schar and the rest of the players will report for training on Wednesday this week after Rafa has given his squad some time off after a tough January.

But we didn’t expect to take 6 points in the last three games against Cardiff, Man City, and Tottenham.

If the lads keep playing with the spirit they showed in these last three games we should be fine this season.

And we will soon have Miguel Almiron and Antonio Barreca in the side.

Things are starting to look up at Newcastle.

    Enjoy watching him play his passing is amazing hes not too good in the air mind you when it comes to defending crosses but he is really good dealing with quick and nimble attackers on the ground.

    Yedlin has a good knack for that as well !

    Hopeful that Barreca can deliver on the left back position would make such a difference if we had pace on either side and the ability to create chances

    Mag 😛 that looks suspiciously like a decent team. I think some would include Shelvey over Ki or Longsataff and Fernandez over Schaer or Lascelles, but really all that says is that we are starting to see some proper competition for places.

    I’m not sure Schar is the best at holding a line – a few times he has been the one playing opponents on in the box.
    Every time I saw Son close down our defenders at pace on Saturday it made me think of how Perez trots across to pretend to challenge opponents. If only he had a sense of urgency.
