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 tonightâ€™s game at St. Jamesâ€™ 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 wasnâ€™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.
