Good start

Good start
Newcastle won their first point in the new season at at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. The Magpies found themselves early in the game back in the score after Boudewijn Zenden scored his first goal in the Premier League on his debut. Zenden was one of the main transfer target of Newcastle this summer. Newcastle managed to pick the point with Acuna scoring after De Goey`s mistake, with 14 minutes remaining in the game.

Nikos played for the full 90 minutes and he was very happy with the way that Newcastle played and especially with the positive result they managed to claim. "Our fans expect a better season and we need to perform very well to gain as many points as possible. Winning a point in London is always a good result and I hope this is only the beginning. Still we should not forget that Newcastle is already doing well this season as we have only one game before we can capitalise on our recent good performances for the Intertoto games and play in the UEFA Cup. The season's start does look good and I hope the rest of the season will be even better."
