If our former Premierships bottom fellow team has claimed to have a “Harry Houdini” working for them, we can say the same thing today after satisfying result against Aston Villa. To be honest, and wasn't my usual habit, I was predicting the opposite result before the game.
But today everyone is having their performance back, and hope JFK can keep the growing-up confidence from the Lads for good. Our “Houdini” has done his magic once again, and everyone seems to be happier than before.
Huge credits given to our two goals scorer Obafemi Martins who really showing what he can do when he's fit. After scoring against WBA last week, he does it again twice today and made it three goals in the last two games.
“He's a big player, there's no doubt about that,” said first-team coach Chris Hughton, quoted from NUFC official site. “The quality he has, everybody is aware of. The pace that he has means he is able to stretch players and he can score different types of goals.”
And as the Villa boss said that Joe Kinnear has instilled a “new-found spirit” in the Newcastle United dressing room, Joe was even left speechless after his Newcastle's side stirring a 2-0 win over Aston Villa today.
He was yelled so much during the match to inspired the Lads to the second vital victory in a very sturdy performance by Newcastle, that make him lost his voice to speak to the Press after the game. Fulham next everyone?
