Shola ‘We Are A Match For Anyone’

8 years ago

Newcastle United forward Shola Ameobi claims that the mood in his team’s camp this season is markedly better than last time round.

Despite losing last Sunday’s derby at Sunderland, the Walker-born Nigerian striker still maintains that there is a better mood in Newcastle’s dressing room this season.

The mood of the camp was not great last time [when United lost a home derby to Sunderland] and we were not on a good run at the time.

“I think this time we are coming at it in a totally different mindset as a team. We know when we get it right we are a match for anyone.”

Ameobi also viewed this evening’s game with Manchester City in a positive light. “It’s great that we’ve got this game to focus on. We have to put the derby to bed, regardless of how much it is hurting and move on.”

With a League Cup game against Manchester City tonight and a Premier League clash with Chelsea on Saturday, the Magpies will be hoping they can do just that.
