Harps on the neet

Harps on the neet

Having been at Newcastle the longest of any of the current crop of players, Steve Harper has branded tonight`s crunch game the biggest in the club`s history. Obviously my own personal opinion is that the Pompey & Leicester games at the back end of the 1992 season were bigger but I can see the lad`s sentiment in this. Hopefully the point will have been stressed to the current crop of players. Harps said:

'The next two fixtures, this one and the one against Fulham, are the biggest in our recent history. We have got to get a minimum of four points from them. We cannot afford to lose either of them.

Of course we have mentioned relegation. We looked at the situation this week - the teams around us, where we stand and what we have to do over the next nine games. There are nine teams down there with a chance of going down and, unfortunately, we are one of them. We have a little mini-season now to save ourselves and we have to roll up our sleeves and get on with it.'

A draw against Liverpool was certainly a point gained than points lost as at half time at Anfield we were dead and buried. Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace must be beaten though!
