Shola Ameobi ‘I Thought We Showed Character’

8 years ago

Shola Ameobi has claimed that the Newcastle performance against Swansea on Saturday showed that the team had ‘character’.

Well where I was sitting in the Leazes End, supporters had plenty of things to say about the players and ‘showing character’ certainly wasn’t one of them.

Shola speaking to Sky Sports;

“It has obviously been tough for us but one thing that’s remained, is the spirit to want to work hard for each other, to fight, to keep on fighting despite the adversity which we have faced in the last few matches.

“I thought we showed character – it was always going to be a tough match and the fans were obviously expecting better from us, for the large part I thought we did that.”

To an extent you can say well what can the players come out with after yet another dismal defeat but claiming the players are showing character and fighting hard etc etc just doesn’t wash with fans who can see the shambles with their own eyes and can’t be duped.
