Newcastle Midfielder Looks Forward To ‘Champions League’ Clash

8 years ago

Matches before an international break can often take on a bigger significance because having two weeks to contemplate your position and not being able to do anything about it, isn’t an ideal scenario.

Midfielder Vurnon Anita has been talking about the aftermath of the Everton match and what needs to happen this Saturday at Cardiff.

“It’s not just about the manager, it’s about the whole team.

We all want to win here as well, the fans as well. I understand this and we must improve and put it on the pitch on Saturday.

You can’t underestimate anybody in the Premier League and so Cardiff will be tough. However, that game’s like a Champions League game for us now, it’s so important. We have to give it our all.

To get rid of that inconsistency we’ll watch what we did wrong and improve it in training, then we must do it on the field on Saturday.”

The truth is of course that the damage was done at the Hull match and while the manner of Monday night’s defeat was a bit different, it was no surprise that we ended up losing.

Up against Cardiff it is yet another team who brought in a number of new players in the summer, can Newcastle prove they are any better than last’s season’s relegation struggle with exactly the same players plus Remy?
