Fulham - Hughes Newcastle Angst!

Fulham - Hughes Newcastle Angst!

After having gone through a similar experience last season, with Fulham, Aaron Hughes, having played for Newcastle, naturally still has feelings for his former club.

Before the fixture he`d expressed a desire not to see them relegated but the 1-0 win, with the winner coming from Diomansy Kamara, has put Newcastle firmly in the frame for relegation and after the game our centre back couldn`t hide his feelings for his former club when interviewed by the media, commenting,

"Everyone can see there`s been no stability there and it`s not about what`s happening on the pitch."

"It`s very sad to see what`s happened to Newcastle and where they are in the table. I just hope they go to Villa next week and get the result they need."

"I`ve a strong connection and affinity with Newcastle, I could tell how down and disappointed and concerned everyone is."

"I can`t imagine that club in the championship, the size of the stadium, those amazing fans, it`s just a huge, huge club that`s embedded in the city and dominates it."


Unfortunately, it`ll take a monumental performance, at Villa, for Newcastle to survive but they should never give up hope, after all weren`t people writing us off this time last season?

gotta say I'd like to see Newcastle survive only so we can see the whole charade repeated next season!

Don't see what the fuss is about, Newcastle ain't been in the top flight that long - look in the record books!

What can I say. There are just some teams that I don't like and Newcastle are one of them.
