Almost there..

Almost there..
After the excellent 4-0 in Belgium I believe the second game is of no importance as far as the qualification to the next round is concerned. We did not expect to have many problems and that was what happened. Still we have to face the second game seriously and not only as a training exercise. We now expect our next opponent who I guess from the latest results that will be 1860 Munich. I think this will be the most difficult game, because if we manage to qualify against one of the most difficult teams of the cup then we will have pretty good chances to win it as well and play in the UEFA Cup.

It will be a great opportunity for the club to play in Europe and try to regain its European status, as this will attract more good players when the transfer season comes. We have not been close to the top positions of the Premier League for a long time now and it is difficult to convince people to come to Newcastle. We need to make our best effort to get in the UEFA Cup as this can provide the key to build a much better team in the next seasons.
