N`Zog buzzing

N`Zog buzzing

Following his recent redrafting into the main line up again, Charles N`Zogbia has been steady rather than spectacular. However his recent resurgence in the current five game unbeaten run has been a welcome one after earlier rumours of a January move to PSG. Charlie said:

"We have been under a lot of pressure. But this has given us a lot of confidence and everybody is happy. The whole dressing room was a very happy place after the game. Hopefully we are going to repeat this when Tottenham come here at the weekend. Going into the festive games we feel we can really build on this.

It was an excellent win for us. Not just for the players, but for everybody connected to the club and all the fans. We really wanted to win at Portsmouth. I know Portsmouth tried hard to score, but we are defending very well at the moment. In the second half at 0-0 we knew we could then play our game and get our attacks in.

When Michael scored it filled us with confidence and we felt we could get more goals. If you look at the goals they were all quality finishes. There were a couple of chances for Oba and Michael, everybody was trying to get in on the act. Danny Guthrie has got his first goal now so it`s all good.

We waited a long time to get this victory but now we want more. All we need to do is keep training very hard. The players at Newcastle really want to do something this season. Now we are moving away from the bottom of the league we are feeling good. When the confidence is back it really makes the world of difference."
