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

Roeder: I Can Take Them To Europe

Caretaker Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder believes he can deliver a UEFA Cup place if he is still in the hot seat come May.

Glenn Roeder: 'There are two issues here: to get the next three points and let the league table take care of itself. If West Ham keep winning, we can't get into that seventh place. Having said that, there are four games to go, there's plenty of football to be played and we are only a point behind them.

'We will take one game at a time, three points - please God - at a time and we will see where we end up.

'But if we were to finish seventh in the table, from where we were at the beginning of February, that would be a hell of an achievement by the players.

'It's the first time we have come back, apparently, from a goal down for a long, long time, so we have broken that run and should gain confidence from that. And Wigan haven't been beaten away from home for a long time also. They are yet another team to come to St James' Park and go away empty-handed.

'They have been terrific, Wigan, this year and a difficult team to beat, but we gave them a goal start and beat them, and beat them well.'

Is this a veiled plea for the job full time, from a man who said he didn't want it? Do you think he's got the bug, and is secretely wanting it? A massive bug to get innit?
