New Signing Happy About Tottenham But Knows He Can Do Better


Emil Krafth was interviewed by BBC Newcastle yesterday, and Matthew Raisbeck has tweeted some of that interview.

We suppose it is good that Emil does not read the newspapers after a game. Though this week will have been much better reading for Newcastle fans and players alike.

Krafth struggled against Norwich, but he was not helped by a weak performance by the entire team. It was a terrible game for Emil to make his debut in. He seems to be a grounded individual, and like the whole team, put in a much-improved performance at Tottenham.

Emil seems to have cemented a first-team place at right-back currently as he has started the last two games. This must mean that he looks very impressive in training.

Krafth will still be getting acclimated to the team, and for him to have played so well in just his second start really bodes well going forward. He will have to continue to put in performances as Javier Manquillo played very well in pre-season and when he replaced DeAndre Yedlin last season.

DeAndre is still out after undergoing groin surgery in May. Having him back will provide some more competition for both Emil and Javier. Three players vying for that right-back spot will only bring out the best in all three players.

    the funnel I believe was fitted at the navel yard lay next to the ship for about a month before it was hoisted onto the ship remember passing it daily and thinking 4 lifting lugs on a 40-ton funnel, the time came to lift it into place 2 lugs broke off and poor slinger under it only a leg was left so I was told I was in the Netty when it happened.

    Anglo – cheers for the Northumberland tip, makes me feel better that we are buying a house in Blythe now. Had to choose somewhere and the family connections played the trump card.

    OP – ha ha stop eating the little creatures. City kids must be scary these days. Out of a total population of 800 out here only 100 are children – gonna be mental when the kids go to a school with a larger population than Ascension!

    Hibbit – good ol’ N Yorkshire hey. My daughter classes herself as from Yorkshire due to being born on RAF Leeming 🙂

    Still proper stoked about the win on Sunday. Missed the first 18 mins as BFBS had cricket on both channels. Was gutted to find out ASM had gone off but fair play and thank you to Atsu.
    Thought we played tremendously but had my heart in my mouth waiting for a Spurs goal.

    Worried when Rose threw himself to the floor and thought VAR would give the Kane pen. Gutted that the Muto being pulled back incident wasn’t looked at though.

    What a win, what a performance and what a relief. Three points from those first three fixtures is good – I thought the points would come from the Norwich game. The Prem is unpredictable.

    Need to perform at Watford game to keep momentum and will be interesting to see how much SB changes the approach.

    Expected the worst and glad to be wrong.

    Anglo – cheers, i’ll have a look…………problem we have is we need a family member on the ground as we are abroad and can’t get back. Blyth is where all of the family live so they are invested in helping us get there. I will compare it to our time in Nottingham as anything is better than that ha ha.

    Is Otterburn Camp near you then? Spent some time there on exercise running around said countryside. The march & shoot followed by the assault course race will stay with me forever 🙂

    It looks like many on here have written a cup run off with the call to rest players to not risk injury. By saying that these posters have clearly made their minds up that we are in the dog fight for the season. I would rather see us compete at our maximum for every match. We just beat the champions league finalists with England’s number 9 leading the line for them. We need to go for broke.

    I will flip any optimism to pessimism on the back of any poor result. Norwich was a worse performance than any under Carver. But Bruce listened, reverted to Rafas set up and removed the horrendous Almiron from a central position into his natural wide position. And it paid off. Howay!
