Vurnon Anita: Hoping for Newcastle form to continue

Newcastle have won their last two leagues games and, as they prepare to play Hull City this Saturday, they could find themselves on 10 points and level with current leaders Liverpool at the summit.

"It's two wins in a row, so that's good - now let's keep on winning," he told NUfcTV.

"We will work hard this week again, analyse them and bring our best performance on the pitch."

Anita is currently keeping Cheick Tiote out of the side, and he hopes they can continue the level they showed last time out against Aston Villa when they claimed a 2-1 win.

"We had a lot of the ball and you can play then, and that's my strength," he said.

"Of course - as a player, you always want to play and this year I've played more so let's keep it this way."

Anita joined the club from Ajax last season and he admits it took time for him to settle.

"I had things to learn and I hope to show it this year," he added.

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
