HT: Newcastle 2 PSV 1 – Newcastle Ahead


nufc-crest.png

Newcastle made a good start to this game with two goals in the first eight minutes, as they caught the visitors flat at the start of tonight’s game at St. James’ Park.

It was an excellent corner by Geremi and well put home by Taylor, who not surprisingly was delighted with the goal.

After eight minutes good move by Newcastle involving Steven Taylor, Geremi, Milner and the Guthrie resulted in another goal.

Taylor broke well and fed Geremi who played in Milner, and James saw Danny Guthrie to his left and laid the ball off and with consummate ease, Guthrie hit his second goal of pre-season coolly past former Manchester City goalkeeper Isaksson.

PSV then started to come back into the game and after 32 minutes they pulled one back, although it wasn’t a particularly good goal for Newcastle to concede.

The ball was played down the left hand side and Beye probably should have cut it out, but the ball got across the goal and went to young 17 year old Peruvian Manco, who dispatched the ball nicely into the net past Given.

Duff went near after 41 minutes when he was through on the right but Damien missed the half chance.

On 45 minutes Gutierrez made a nice move just outside the box, and then hit a nice right foot shot just wide of the PSV post.

The game was being played at a fairly slow pace but Newcastle had two makeshift attackers in Duff and Milner, but they were doing quite well, and seemed to at least be enjoying themselves.

The half time whistle came with Newcastle still ahead 2-1.

    Manco is the brightest prospect of Peruvian, an di dare say S.American football.

    He led Peruvian U-17 to World cup quarters, and got elected young player of the U17 S.American tournament, even when Peru finished 4th.

    Being peruvian, I am very excited about him, as is my whole country.

    Great news today; (1) Smith’s not playing, he’s def leaving (2) Steve Mcmahon in the crowd, takeover rumours are true (3) Gutierrez looks class, Guthrie looks a good prospect & Duff’s getting back to his best. Things could be looking up.

    Milner has shown his class tonight. Can’t believe there are still so many detractors amongst our own fans.

    Still dont think LB is our most important position – AM and Holding MF (one to create one to stop) – we should be holding on to the ball not giving it away – AND WE ARE STILL PLAYING THE LONG BALL TO THE FORWARDS – both of them 5 foot

    It’s a friendly, it doesn’t matter if we win or lose. And while Enrique does need to improve, he doesn’t deserve the abuse some of the lowly dogs who frequent this blog give him.

    Oh good God, there’s a reason Cacapa plays in defence. Shooting isn’t one of his strong points. LOL!!

    Ha Ha Ha I think Air Traffic Control at the airport will be moving planes out of the way of that cacapa shot. Ponteland is about where it will land.

    Is wasn’t just enrique’s fault that goal. There were 2 more players at fault to let the shot in and Given had little chance to save. The defending again is a shambles, i don’t know what all this Chris Hughton has been doing coaching this lot, but they are defending worse than ever.

    Enrique should have knocked out for a corner but goes for a fancy clearance and it dropped right in the middle of the penalty area with 2 PSV players lurking there.

    It’s 2-2 lads for any latecomers, missed the first half so dunno how we did really first hand, but 2nd half hasn’t been all that.

    Their goal came from a mistake from Enrique, ball came over from the left, he hooked it right back into the middle and one of their men volleyed it into the corner.
