Shola Ameobi: Going through goal drought

Shola Ameobi: Going through goal drought

The Nigeria international is enjoying a run in the Newcastle first team but, despite some excellent displays, a goal has not come his way.

His last league goal came against Queens Park Rangers last year, and he is desperate to find the back of the net.

"I am extremely frustrated. I am playing well but not scoring goals," he told the Evening Chronicle after missing a good chance in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

"I should have buried that header in the second half, it was bread and butter for me. It is frustrating and something I need to work on.

"As a striker you gain confidence from scoring goals. I have to add them to my game in the rest of the season. I am working hard in training to make sure I get into positions and hopefully they will come soon.

"It is a long drought now. It is something I am trying not to think about.

"When you do that it affects you. But for all that the team comes first and as long as we win that is all that matters. On a personal level I want to break that duck as soon as I can.

"When the team is winning you want to get in among the goals. Hopefully, I will put it right in the next few games."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
