Like it or not, the United dream team from Kevin Keegan's era is nothing but history now and we should not look back and keep going up. We should change our “Nevermind losing 5-4 rather than win 1-0” from now on we must start to think “I do prefer we win 1-0, but demand progress”.
Today, United caretaker Nigel Pearson insists Newcastle United have to quickly forget the disappointment of Saturday's 6-0 defeat at Old Trafford and be more well prepared for the visit of Stoke City at Gallowgate on Wednesday.
“Of course the Man Utd game was disappointing, but it was always going to be a difficult given everything which has happened this week,” he said, “It hurt our professional pride but we have to take it and get on with things.”
“We have a huge game on Wednesday against Stoke and we have to make sure we pick the players up. It's another important game which we will be going all out to win in front of our fans and hopefully we'll get the result to take us through.”
The FA Cup third round will be Nigel first ever on his career with Newcastle to lead the squad for two Toon games in a row. I'm personally looking for the FA Cup replay as a potential win game under his arrangement. And as long as the new manager haven't been chosen, he will have more Toon games in hands.
Yesterday, Chris Mort has made another official statement about the process of appointing a new manager at Newcastle United. He said to have identified and spoken to a number of potential candidates.
“This is a very important appointment – our first since taking control of the Club – and we will take as long as required to make sure we bring in the right person.” Mort said, “That person will be someone we believe will be able to deliver successful results and performances to accompany that.”
And today, Chris Mort is to believe already have a meeting with the owner Mike Ashley after back from his business trip.
“We will continue to devote our time to the very important task of selecting the right person to manage Newcastle United and we will make a further announcement when appropriate.”
