Let’s Dedicate This Great Win To Our Two Missing Fans

Sunday, May 24th, 2015 · 104 Comments

It was a wonderful display by Newcastle today in front of a packed St. James’ Park and it would be appropriate at the end of this season – which has been very tough – to dedicate this great win today to our two of our most dedicated fans – John Alder and Liam Sweeney.

John and Liam lost their lives literally supporting Newcastle United, when their passenger jet MH17 was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday July 17th, 2014 by rebels, as they were traveling to support the team in New Zealand during pre-season.

We’re sure they would have been looking down today on St. James’ Park in what was an emotional end to the season and a great display from our lads.

Rest in peace John and Liam – we will never forget you.

But let’s be very clear – the sell-out crowd were simply magnificent today – as the players showed pride. guts and spirit, and got what was needed today – q win – and we even moved up two places to finish 15th on on 39 points – although that was our second lowest points total ever in the Premier League.

Jonas after scoring vital second goal after 85 minutes – what a guy!

Here are the video highlights of today’s game with Newcastle missing a number of chances but still securing a 2-0 win with goals from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez, and we survived the drop –  and saved the club around £80M in the process.

You may have to wait of the advert – but it’s worth the wait!

Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In Sensational Win?

Sunday, May 24th, 2015 · 12 Comments

There’s nothing quite like a motivated Newcastle United side when they are playing at home in front of over 52,000 screaming mad Geordies,  and the lads got the job done this afternoon with a good 2-0 win against the Hammers,  and played extremely well under such a tough situation, and we got our first win in 11 games.

But it was when it really mattered and the lads should get the plaudits for playing so well, and we almost scored from the kick-off from Riviere – so we though the lads looked ready.

Good goals from Moussa Sissoko and the brave and courageous  Jonas Gutierrez got the job done, and we finished in 15th place with Hull taking the drop.

Did I say we finished above Sunderland and Aston Villa,  who were both beaten today and  the amazing Leicester City won 5-1 at home to relegated QPR.
