Love, Goals And The Gallowgate!

Love, Goals And The Gallowgate!

Oba Martins scored at St James' Park and 'Love Is In The Air'.

Martins: 'I am very happy. I have been waiting for it since I came to Newcastle, to score in a home game.I did not have any pressure, I was just trying to help the team. All the fans were waiting for was for me to score goals, so I am very glad that I have scored today.

'The manager said if you score, they will love you and love you, so I am very happy that I have scored.'

Manager Glenn Roeder was delighted for the chap ... but perhaps the header went a little bit to Roeder's head (if you get my drift).

Martins is NOT a target man, as he and the Toon Army know, but Roeder seems set to give him that role.


Roeder: 'I am really pleased for Oba that he has got off the mark at home, especially down at the Gallowgate End. I have been saying for a few weeks now he scores goals like that every day in training and he has proved me right tonight.

'The header was tremendous. I have just seen how high he actually jumps - he gets amazing height for someone who is so small, and he is going to be a real danger in the air.

'The second finish was special. Everyone enjoyed that one. He is a different number nine to several other number nines we have had in the past. There are never two players the same. But as long as he scores the goals, that is the most important thing'.
