HT: WBA 1 Newcastle 3: Lovenkrands Scores!


wba-badgenufc-crest4

It looks like the lads are trying their best to give their sick manager, Joe Kinnear a lift, as they are 3-1 up at the Hawthorns at half time with the new boys playing a big part in today’s game.

The game started off at a quick pace and a great start for the Magpies.

It’s just 67 seconds into the game when Abdoulaye Meite made a complete mess of Shola Ameobi’s through ball and Irish winger Damien Duff raced through on goal, and the Irishman composed himself before slotting low underneath Scott Carson for his third of the season.

Great start for Newcastle.

But that lead lasted only a couple of minutes when Marc-Antoine Furtune brushed aside Steven Taylor on the edge of the box, and placed a nice left footed shot into Harper’s bottom corner of the net to quickly bring the sides level.

But5 then on 9 minutes Newcastle scored again, and would you believe it, it was Peter Lovernkrands, singed on a free transfer who got the all important goal.

The game is going at a frantic pace, and we trust Joe is not watching it in hospital – if he is supposed to be resting up, but he’ll love this second goal.

Damien Duff floated in a left-wing pass to our new signing Ryan Taylor, and his first-time shot crashed into a couple of West Brom players and it’s Peter Lovenkrands who hit the ball home from close range for his first goal for Newcastle United, and the visiting fans went wild.

Somebody please phone his wife and let her know her husband scored, and they may be staying at Newcastle past June.

On 23 minutes Newcastle escaped a possible penalty as a run by Morrison caused some panic in Newcastle back four, Enrique and Coloccini are grounded having attempted to thwart the former Boro man.

Then on 41 minutes would you believe it but we scored a 3rd goal. Ryan Taylor crosses a corner into the are and it’s Steven Taylor who comes in and meets the ball with a thumping header off the arm of a West Brom defender on the goal-line.

Newcastle have played some attacking football in the first half, and dare we say it, have looked a good team. But now the defense has to be strong in the second half, and no daft mistakes.

And with Middlesbrough being beaten by Man City earlier today, a win can see us gain 3 points on two teams beneath us in the league.

But we must keep attacking.

Howay The Lads!!
