Midfielder Looking Forward To Scoring More Goals

Ki Sung-yueng has never been a big goalscorer in his career and in his 180 Premier League appearances he has made so far – he has scored 15 goals with 10 assists.

Ki probably expected that he would play more alongside Jonjo Shelvey once he joined Newcastle.

They had played well during one season when Swansea finished 8th top.

But since December both have been out of the team and are struggling to get back as starters in the side.

Newcomer Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden played well together until Sean was injured and the local lad is now out for the rest of the season.

And Isaac Hayden has said recently he expects to leave Newcastle in the summer and he may well end up at Brighton on the south coast for next season.

Ki Sung-yueng – wants to socre more goals

Ki has been interviewed, and he talks about his team-mate Shelvey.

This is some of what he has said in the Chronicle:

“Everybody knows how good he is.” “He has very good quality to help the team.”

“I know there’s a little thing on injuries with Shelvey because he missed some games.”

“Now he’s fit and now he can play, he can help the team any time.”

“There’s a lot of competition and we have a lot of players in the middle.”

“Every single training session and game we give our best and the manager picks the team.”

And here are Ki’s thoughts on scoring more goals for Newcastle – he has yet to get off the mark on Tyneside after 15 appearances this season:

“Everyone wants to score goals.” “I haven’t done that yet.”

“Hopefully it comes before the end of the season and I’ll be very happy.”

“Football can be difficult.” “Even if you play well and you don’t score it becomes more difficult.”

“We want to play well and want to win games.”

“We had a lot of attempts in the last game but we need to keep concentrating.”

Mo Diame is fit again, and it may be that Diame starts alongside Isaac Hayden in central midfield tomorrow night and that both Ki and Shelvey are on the bench.

It’s a game we need to take something out of – but fans aren’t too confident.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Leicester City?

    From previous previous……no idea what’s legal or not.
    Regardless, I would imagine it still has to be declared (somewhere)

    Jib from a couple posts back:
    “It would appear that Julian Assange would have been
    better off facing Barak Obama he now has to face the
    wrath of Big Don”

    No way mate. Big Don, the Orange Man, loves Assange! Even said so in a speech to supporters. Assange, working with the Russians under directions from Putin, released various internal DNC emails harmful to Don’s opponent in the 2016 elections, helping him get elected!

    So the “wrath of Big Don” towards Assange is likely to be an all expenses paid stay at Don’s luxurious resort, Mar-A-Lago!

    When I was in the army and we were on different tours or long tedious exercises and the lads were down the sgt major used to say “do your boots fit, Is the mail getting through?…moral must be high then!”

    Theres some right doom and gloom merchants on here, glass not even in the room never mind half empty.

    The sun is shining we ain’t in the bottom 3 and the mackems are treading water in league one, cheer up or shut up.

    On another topic…

    By now you have seen or heard about the first actual photograph taken of a super massive black hole! Scientists have long known in theory about the massive objects from which anything, once caught in its gravitational force field, nothing, not even light can escape!

    Turns out the photo was very similar to Mike Ashley’s wallet!

    In the earlier fixture vs the Foxes at SJP (0 – 2) this season
    Yedlin gave a pen away for their first goal
    It was hardly De Andre’s fault more ball to hand than anything
    Their second , Maguire was all over Clark from a corner.

    There was a protest before during and after the game which affected
    the team.
    This was the team then
    I think tomorrows team will be much stronger

    I think what affected the team more than any protest was the complete lack of ambition and failure to back the manager by the owner, the ensuing media circus that arrived after said lack of ambition and a cruel fixture list.

    For Charnley to say we aren’t aware of how a player contract with agent’s fees and the wage bill works is ludicrous. He’s been listening to Gomer Trump too much.You know, alternate facts and all that. Of course we can do the maths Chumpley. Everybody has a calculator now if they can’t do it with pencil and paper. Come off it Lee you buffoon. How do other clubs manage to buy players and succeed at a higher level than us? Bobo the trained clown (aka Mike Ashley) always spoke of emulating Arsenal because of their financial success. Is that what we’re doing Bobo? It certainly doesn’t look like it.
