10 Positives This Season At Newcastle United

6 years ago

I decided to sit down and come up with my ten positives from Newcastle United so far this season.

Like most of you I am already fed up with this season, which after a handful of matches is just so depressing.

So as a bit of therapy for myself, I thought I would come up with the positives that would then help me realise that it wasn’t actually as bad as I had come to think.

The good things that I could share with you which would help me feel a bit of pride in the club and/or the players, on and off the pitch.

Here are my ten;

  1. Rolando Aarons’ contribution in the Palace match.
  2. Janmaat’s willingness to get forward and goal against Palace plus very decent (Newcastle’s only) shot on target from long range against Stoke.
  3. The club and fan reaction to the sad loss of Liam Sweeney and John Alder.
  4. Cisse comeback to score the two goals in late fightback against Hull.
  5. The bravery of Jonas Gutierrez in fighting cancer and the overwhelming support from Newcastle fans to the player.

Those of you who are most alert might have spotted that I didn’t quite reach number ten, or indeed number six.

I didn’t run out of time, I simply couldn’t think of anything else that I could take pleasure or comfort from.

To be honest, even Janmaat is starting to worry me now. A daft penalty at Palace, poor defending for the cross that led to Crouch’s goal, while he turned his back on goals against both Hull and Southampton.

I honestly wanted to put myself in a better frame of mind but can’t think of anything else to prop my fading spirits up.

Please help me out, what have I missed?!!

Please let me know below and cheer me up…
