Manager Sam Allardyce believes Newcastle are only operating at 40% under his command yet their long-suffering supporters must be feeling optimistic as the team began the season in style.

Two goals from Obafemi Martins and one from Charles N´Zogbia secured a 3-1 victory against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium and Allardyce is now looking for the team to kick on as they prepare to face Aston Villa on Saturday.

He said: "I want to improve Newcastle to a point where they haven´t been before. With the support of the owner and chairman the club is moving forward very quickly. I am 40% where I want to be. There is another 60% to go and I have got to buy myself some time to get there. It is about winning matches and we have managed to start well."
