Tonight we meet in-form team Newcastle away at St James’ Park. They have just defeated both Sunderland and Arsenal and they play really well at the moment. For us it’s about having balance in the team and take care of the chances we get. Backwards we are solid, although we have given away some easy goals this season, and we always creates chances going forward. If we keep focus we have a good chance to get a good result. The player to watch out for is undoubtedly Carrol, he big and strong and very good in the air. But tonight, he will meet Samba, who is just as big and strong, so it’s going to be a good fight. It’s been a while since I’ve been at St.James’ Park and it is going to be fun to play there again. Newcastle have some very good supporters which gives good atmosphere in the stadium. But still, I like those sitting in the away section a little better anyways ;)
