If any one player campaigned for Graeme Souness to keep his job as Newcastle manager it was Turkish international midfielder, Emre. Souness brought him to the club, and he stood by his boss throughout those troubled times. But even he has to admit, a positive mood has returned to St James’ Park since Souness has gone.

Emre: ‘I think the luck has changed. I have noticed a more positive attitude around the dressing room when we have not been losing games. That was still there after Charlton. Maybe a few weeks ago when things were not going so well for us, we would have lost the game after a performance like that. We must take the positives.’
