A Chance To Enter 'Geordie Folklore'
Nobby Solano wants Alan Pardew's foreign legion to make a name for themselves in Geordie folklore in the Wear-Tyne derby this Saturday. Nobby Solano: “They will quickly know if they can score that they are representing the fans because they will become a hero overnight. “I am sure that the local lads like Steve Harper, Steven Taylor and Shola Ameobi will be reminding all of the new lads what it means to the city. “I cherish my goal against Sunderland even now and I also managed to score against them in pre-season so I know the feeling is great. “It’s a good feeling because you can bring the supporters so much joy and unlike usually, that feeling lasts for months not days because the bragging rights also come into to it in a derby game. “I am back in Newcastle again now and it has been as usual – hectic! “These are special games and tough games as well. “Both teams started with good results against Liverpool and Arsenal but this will be different and it is whoever starts the game with the right intentions. “I know everybody would like to see a No 9 and see some money spent. “But Shola is a very strong boy and if you get the deliveries to him right, he can score goals. “Demba is also a player who can score goals so there is enough about Newcastle to make life tough for Sunderland. I am confident if Newcastle get the service right to the two strikers it can be a great result and a day to remember for us. “It’s only the beginning of the season but defeat wouldn’t be the end of the world. “We are only a short time into the new season. “The new boys are settling in and there is a long way to go. “But hopefully Newcastle can emerge with the right result and then really push on for the rest of the season.” WEEKEND'S FIXTURES: Saturday 20th August 2011 Sunderland v Newcastle United 12:00 Arsenal v Liverpool 12:45 Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers 15:00 Everton v Queens Park Rangers 15:00 Swansea City v Wigan Athletic 15:00 Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion 17:30 Sunday 21st August 2011 Norwich City v Stoke City 13:30 Wolverhampton Wanderers v Fulham 14:00 Bolton Wanderers v Manchester City 16:00 Monday 22nd August 2011 Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur 20 NEXT GAME ...
