Shola: 'Newcastle Players Are Worried'

Shola Ameobi admits Newcastle United's season has hit a new low after their 6-0 humiliation by Liverpool.

Shola Ameobi: “That’s the low point in the season for us.“On top of our last home game, that was very disappointing.“The manner of how we lost is the most disappointing thing.

"You start the game wanting to give everything you have, but to then go down two goals quickly to a good side like that you are struggling.“Coming out for the second half, giving a goal away and then once that third goal went in, it was game over.“It’s a fact we didn’t tighten up as a group and conceded six.“It’s always going to be a tough day at the office when you concede six.“We needed composure on the pitch and we didn’t have that.“The players are worried. It’s never nice to lose like that.“The next three games, we can use this to spark us and give us a kick up the backside, if you like.“Nobody is too good to go down, as we found out last time [when United were relegated in 2009].“I’m sure the players understand that and that’s what the manager will be impressing on us this week.“In the coming week it is not about how talented a team you are, it’s about how much you want it on the day.“Liverpool wanted it more on Saturday.“We were all disappointed and there is a sense we did not do our jobs.“If someone comes to your home patch and does that to you it is never a nice feeling.“I have seen a lot of anger in that dressing room, which is understandable.”
