Geremi: Toon aim
Geremi knows that he must have the support of the St James' Park fans if he is to succeed at Newcastle.
The Magpies' captain, signed in the summer from Chelsea, is already aware of the expectation heaped on the players by the Toon Army.
Former Real Madrid and Middlesbrough player Geremi has set his sights on winning silverware under Sam Allardyce to appease the success-starved supporters.
Geremi told the Daily Star: "I know all about the responsibility of being a Newcastle player.
"You are carrying the hopes of millions and if you don't live up to that then you won't be here for much longer.
"We have one of the biggest fan bases in the world and they want a lot from us.
"It is so different to being a Chelsea player. At Newcastle the fans are around the club and the city all of the time, not just on a match day.
"Newcastle fans want us to play in a certain way and win games at the same time. We have to give them that.
"We want to repay them for their support and the only way we can do that is by winning a trophy."
