… how everyone is pulling together and we will be lifting cups in the course of the season. But we’ve heard it before so many times it’s like water off a duck’s back!

So when Shola Ameobi says he can form a productive partnership with Obafemi Martins that will put the fear of God into the Premiership defences, we await the outcome. Actions speak louder than words.

The pair played together for the first time at St James’ Park the fans left having seen an unsuccessful afternoon.

Ameobi: ‘It was the first game that I have played with him and it takes time for anyone to gel. But we have to do that sooner rather than later.
That should be the case because a lot depends on the chances that we create and I know we can both score goals. He has done that all his career and I want to keep on my scoring run.’
