Courageous Fabian Schar Enjoys Playing At Newcastle – Praises Fans


Fabian Schar is a brave lad and an excellent player and he has been a really excellent addition to the Newcastle side this season.

And he just loves playing in front of the Newcastle fans and he’s always praising them for how they help the team both home and away.

Fabian is a player who seems to be in the wars a lot on the pitch and he played on after breaking his nose in the home game against Bournemouth last November.

And the 27-year-old was unfortunately allowed to play on for Switzerland in their game against Georgia over the weekend after being knocked out cold.

That should not have happened and courageous players like Schar need to be protected from themselves in cases like that.

The Swiss International didn’t become a regular in the Newcastle side until early November.

He initially had a tough time of it at the club while he adjusted to the Premier League, a new club, a new country, and a new manager.

This is what he has said while away on International duty with Switzerland:

“Here you have to be physically extremely ready to cope with the challenges.”

“And, after the World Cup, I moved into club training late so it took me a while to adapt.”

“I had to deal with a new team and a new style of play under a new manager.”

“It took time, which was hard, but I waited for my chance and then hopefully I feel like I took it.”

“I feel more comfortable now and I am enjoying my football at Newcastle, where the fans are great.”

“And we are on a very good run.”

Fabian Schar is a huge favorite with the fans and he’s the type of player who would walk through a brick wall for Rafa and the club.

And yes – insist he can play on after that.

The Newcastle medics will not want him to play on Tuesday when the Swiss are at home to Denmark in a Euro qualifying game after suffering a bad concussion in the previous game.

We’ll see what happens.

    Being suspended Schar will regard these games
    as a good way to stay match fit.
    Ed is right , sometimes players need protecting
    from themselves.

    There’s no way in the world that Schar should be turning out for Switzerland in a match on Tuesday. It’ll be a scandal if he does.

    Sorry Jib, you wrote.

    The game last year did no harm to the SJP
    pitch that the ground staff couldn’t fix in time
    for the next PL fixture.

    Isn’t that a contradiction, didn’t harm the pitch staff couldn’t fix it in time. Why did they have to fix it?

    Was listening to Scott 4 when I read that news. One of my all-time favourite albums.
