Shola on SJP

Shola on SJP

Having made his first team return against Reading on Monday and with a couple of ressie games under his belt, St James sees the return of the Big Sho for the first time in 2007. Speaking out ahead of the Rovers game he doth quippeth:

"Running out at St James' Park isn't something I thought I would do again this season, and I'm very excited about it. I'm delighted to be back - it's all a bonus for me this season. It would be great to play on Saturday, especially as it's at St James'. It's somewhere I love playing. I grew up watching from the stands and now I'm lucky enough to play there. I'm very excited about being in front of my home fans again, and hopefully I can help us in a game we desperately need to win.

Newcastle United have always been known as a team that can score goals, and we don't want that to change. Oba's done his bit this season - he's banged the goals in - and hopefully with the likes of Michael and me back, we can help next season. Obviously the other players - the midfielders and defenders - have to score goals as well. It's not only about the strikers, goals have to come from all over the park. It's certainly something we have to do better at next season, and hopefully in these last two games.'
