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

Best Performance

Newcastle sent Portsmouth crashing out of the Carling Cup at St James' Park and Glenn Roeder was delighted with the response of his side to the criticism they have received in recent weeks.

Roeder: 'I was pleased with all of them. There are a number of players who started the game who have been heavily criticised lately and they probably had their best game of the season.

'What pleased me about that is they showed the character you would want them to. When you are criticised, if you are not a man, it is easy to fold and curl up and go away.

'But those players did not, those players went out and put in their best game of the season. I am pleased for them.

'I'm pleased for the players - not pleased for myself, pleased for the players.
They have deserved better in the last few weeks - they know that, I know that, I'm not sure other people realise that - but they have deserved better and they have not had the breaks.

'After the first fifteen minutes, once we got used to the conditions and they type of football we had to play, we ran out worthy winners. We could have scored more goals - it's a long time since we scored three. But don't worry about me, I'm so pleased for the players.'
