Big Win Is Just What Newcastle Players And Fans Needed

We’ll not get too carried away, but tonight’s emphatic win against 4th placed Cardiff,  is just what the Newcastle players and the fans needed.

Lovenkrands – Peter has certainly found his shooting boots

With all 6 new players we signed last month starting the game tonight, it was almost as if Chris Hughton was finding out quickly, whether he had signed some good players.

Well, all the lads really produced tonight, with a stunning win, against one of the superior Championship sides.

The lads registered their second league double of the season too, with many more on the way we hope.

When you think that Steven Taylor, Joey Barton, Alan Smith, Fabricio Coloccini, Jose Enrique, Shola Ameobi, Nicky Butt and other senior players did not play at all tonight, it has to illustrate the strength in depth we’ve built up since January 1st.

And the way the lads started tonight – it was almost like they were men possessed – and we have to give great credit to Chris and the coaches for getting the lads ready to play.

They also seem to have done quite well in the transfer market – dare we say. 😀

We take credit on this blog too, because we blasted them for last Saturday night’s performance, which just wasn’t good enough. 😀

But joking aside, we’re so proud of the team tonight.

This was, in our opinion a water-shed win – and as we had said before the game this was very very important game – in fact a water-shed game for our season.

The lads got rid of the cob-webs that was just a single win in our previous 5 league games, and we blew away Cardiff  City in the first 15 minutes, when we were 3 goals up.

But hey, we’ll not get too carried away, promise, and we’ll also take absolutely nothing for granted – not after what happened last season, which is still far too fresh in the memory.

Ouch – my arm just hurt.

As we’ve said before, we’ll take one game at a time, and next up is a tough one at Derby County next Tuesday night.

They are an improving side under Nigel Clough, and they recently broke the Nottingham Forest unbeaten streak with a 1-0 home win, and they’ll be trying to do exactly the same with Newcastle.

But the lads will go in there, like they did tonight, and go all out for all 3 points.

We’re closer to promotion, but we’ll only celebrate when that’s an absolute certainty – but boy how we’ll celebrate the Miracle on the Tyne — if it indeed happens this season.

Howay The Lads!!

    Very well done, Chris Hughton – has shown he can learn from mistakes, is canny in the transfer market (provisional judgement), and can get his players up for big matches.

    If we get a new owner in the summer, they should look seriously at the possibility of keeping him.

    Was down to the balance of the team being better. We obviusly have a much better calibre of player than others but tonight we had a really balanced team all over the park and it really showed.
