This Player Needs To Have Patience And Settle In On Tyneside

Yoshinori Muto has had a disappointing first season at Newcastle with injuries and other things.

The number 13 has made only 13 appearances for the side with 6 of them being starts.

Maybe it’s just a case of getting the 28 times capped Japanese International (3 goals) to settle down at Newcastle, and learning English would undoubtedly help with that.

The 26-year-old cost Newcastle £9.5M from Bundesliga club Mainz on a four-year contract in late July last year.

So we are hoping he will come through next season – if not this season.

Muto after scoring at Old Trafford earlier this season

Muto has been interviewed in the Chronicle today:

“It has been really tough.” “I expected to play in the West Ham match but I couldn’t.”

“It wasn’t my day at West Ham, as I lost my chance to play due to the injury that occurred.”

“But I think it is important that I remain positive.” “I need to be patient.”

“I am the type of person who is not good at giving in.”

“I will continue to train well in the training ground and wait for an opportunity to present itself.”

 “During the Asian Cup I spoke to Maya Yoshida (Southampton),.”

“And we realized that as this is a very important phase in the season, it may be more difficult to get the position back.”

“I was quite confident to get my position back, but the situation is worse than I expected as the team did well without me.”

It’s interesting he was going to play at West Ham last Saturday – maybe he would have come in for Perez?

We will hear from Rafa this morning in his press conference for the tough game against Everton tomorrow at home.

And it would be a surprise if Muto plays tomorrow – but possible.

Muto has not been able to settle down on Tyneside – yet.

It’s not unusual for players to have difficulty during their first season in England.

So he needs some time and patience will help him.

The Geordie fans will help him too – maybe he needs some black pudding to get him going?

    On Everton
    Is there a bunch of cnuts with a bigger chip on their shoulders about us ?
    Think they hate us more than the the mackums do .
    Remember when we went down in 2009 was reading the bbc 606 boards back then ..no other team stood out more celebrating our demise more than this shower .
    Also recall them bloating when they failed to turn up against big Sam athe sos condemning us to the drop .
    A few comments from them appearing on the mag already …they are nothing if not predictable
    For those lucky enough to be attending and close to them on Saturday please bear this in mind and turn the place into the bear bit I remember when Leeds turned up .hwtl
    I want to turn over this shower more than any team this year .

    Hi lesh I see you are still lumping me with Jane and jib.
    I asked your puppet master Mr tuff if he had any proof of these allegations.
    He said I would be the first to know.
    Well that’s never going to happen.
    More chance of his nose not growing every time he repeats his lie.
    It must be pretty big by now.

    One fine day

    I’m with you on the Everton fans situation. They really do hate us and probably every other team in world football.

    They call for every manager to get the sack no matter what their league position is but the reality is, they’re just living in Liverpool’s shadow and always will be whilst we’re the big boys of the whole North East.

    People seem to forget how much money they spend aswell to try and please their fans whilst we get a £16m signing every 15 Years and have to make do with it but they still have it in for us.

    Let’s hope our lads turn up.

    Come on the toon!

    Just done some research, apparently it was originally marketed as Spiced Ham, ergo sp(iced h)am. Who knew?

    Wasn’t Spam the poor family’s Pek? Or even Bacon Grill – which I’m sure was exactly the same, just the UK version.

    (You may have to google Pek)

    and you sir must have been Robin of Loxley – but then again no, that involves Green which is clearly the domain of others.
    Maybe Ray Jackson if we played in the same band.

    Jib – The Scarlet Pimpernel aka Sir Percy Blakeney ?
    They seek him here, they seek him there….that demmed elusive Pimpernel

    and I do like a pint ( Real Ale these days )
