Alan Smith says the performance against West Brom showed the Toon players were good enough for a return to the Premier League. Alan Smith: "I think people were looking on that day against West Brom to see what kind of attitude players had. "We’d heard all the reports that players didn’t care and didn’t want to play for Newcastle. "And that couldn’t be further from the truth. "Everyone on the outside of Newcastle United probably saw something totally different than on the inside. "We knew we had the players that were capable of getting us out of this division."
