Players Have Their Say After Nice Preseason Performance

Here are a couple of short soundbites from interviews from players we don’t hear from too often. The first is Yoshinori Muto whose English has improved considerably over the past year. The Japanese striker was excellent today and really benefitted from having young Elias Sorensen as his strike partner.

This next interview is from the young brothers Longstaff who both got to play together in the Newcastle midfield today.

Next we have some tweets from mainstays Jamaal Lascelles and Isaac Hayden. Also our Danish striker Elias Sorensen, who has been very good in his two appearances this preseason, has tweeted about today’s preseason victory.

We certainly have been impressed with Isaac Hayden who, despite trying circumstances for him personally, has really pushed on this preseason. If we weren’t eternal pessimists, we might even think he is wanting to stay at the club.

Jamaal Lascelles will be really important this season and his leadership is something that can slowly help to steady the Newcastle ship.

The pending arrival of Joelinton, who we hope can slot nicely into the group, should be next on the agenda for the club. There is little room for any nonsense by Ashley and Charnley in the market. They need to get these deals done and quick.

There are only three preseason matches left before the season begins at home to Arsenal on Sunday, August 11th. We hope there will be at least 5-6 more players in the Newcastle camp by that time.
