'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shola speaks

Despite bagging another goal against the old enemy, Shola Amebi was fairly disconsolate as the tag of becoming the first Newcastle side to lose against the mackems in nigh on three decades. In the end his missed one on one in the second half turned out to be more costly than imagined as we were condemned to a probably eternally repeated '2-1`. Shola said:

"It`s always nice for a striker to score, as goals breed confidence, but I don`t feel at my highest point at the moment. It`s something I haven`t experienced before, and something I wanted to avoid. It`s quite hard to take being a Newcastle fan. At the end on the pitch I was quite emotional. Being from round here, you don`t want Sunderland getting one over you.

We keep on digging a hole for ourselves, and it`s always going to be tough conceding two goals away from home and coming back from that every time. It was one too many for us, but it wasn`t for the lack of fight. We created chances, and I probably should have done better with one in the second half. I should have hit the target. That would have taken us 2-1, and unfortunately they`ve gone and scored a stunning goal.

You have to deal with it and move forward. We have to look forward to the next game. We have to stay as a team, and I felt we played as a unit. The first goal was a shank by Steed Malbranque which went to Djibril Cisse, and the second was a wonder goal. We have to stay positive. They didn`t really open us up too much. Hopefully, we can get that win tomorrow."
