Newcastle United legendary defender Bobby Moncur revealed that style of football will always come second place to picking up victories at St James’s Park.
United picking up the first win since October 22 last weekend, and Toon legend Moncur was ecstatic to see Newcastle look to have turned a corner. He also hopes Sam Allardyce’s side can build on another victory like they did against Birmingham when they head to Fulham.
“The Birmingham game was, for me, a better performance and despite the weather a lot more fluent than it looked.” Bobby told the Chronicle, “We had 17 pops at goal during the game, had six corners and have picked up the three points, and I defy anybody who says they’d rather see a pretty passing game ahead of winning matches.”
Moncur is now hoping Newcastle players can repay the loyal Toon Army ahead of their visit to Craven Cottage and to repeat the sparkling performance from the away section at Blackburn last time out. United only have one win away on the opening game of the season at Reebok stadium.
“The fans were magnificent at Ewood Park and they really did get behind the team. The players responded to that and, as always, I know they will do it again at Fulham.”
