Unbelievable Newcastle Display – Lifts Spirits On Tyneside


On what must be one of the most unexpected, yet best displays at St. James Park in many a year,  Newcastle simply demolished Aston Villa 6-0 this afternoon.

Captain Kevin Nolan scores Newcastle’s second goal

After Aston Villa had demolished West Ham 3-0 last week at Villa Park, we had said in our match preview we would be satisfied with a draw, but this was an amazing display by the Newcastle team.

Newcastle had two let-offs in the first 25 minutes as John Carew completely wasted a 10th minute penalty, by blazing way over the bar, and then Ashley Young was clean through but flagged for offside, when in fact he wasn’t.

But apart from those two good chances, Villa got very short change from a Newcastle side who went about their task in a workmanlike fashion, and even seemed a little nervous, at least in the first 10 minutes.

But the Newcastle players’ willingness to back each other up, and play a team game, paid off handsomely in the end, as they took their chances when they came along.

It’s a shocking result, in the real sense of the word,  because what odds could you have got this morning,  for a Newcastle 6-0 win today?

Yes, it’s only one game, and we certainly will not be getting carried away with the win, and we’ll keep our feet firmly on the ground, and yes, the next job is to put in a very solid performance at Wolves this coming weekend, and hopefully pick up more points.

We may still be in for a relegation dog-fight this season, but this result might show that Newcastle may be a better team than they’ve been given credit for,  and certainly Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood continue to gain the confidence of the Newcastle fans, for the expert job they have done for the club over these last 13 months.

But celebrations are certainly in order for at least a day or two,  after what was a truly memorable performance from this Newcastle United side.

It was simply unbelievable.

    I am first to admit when I am wrong. I didn’t believe this line up could beat Villa. Wow, what a shocker. Not sure I recall being this happy after a Toon match before.

    I think the claims that we are too slow can be rubbished now, not to ghet too ahead of ouselves though, we still need a few through the door.

    ToonXI@2, let me join you in the sackcloth and ashes. I thought we would get beat today as well, so am pleased to eat humble pie. No sure we’ll play a more inept team than Villa all season, but at least we took our our slice of luck after Carew blasted over. Barton immense, wish he was captain.

    We still haven’t got a Premiership standard squad, and we still look slow against the likes of Young , so keep that money on the table Cashley! Two more pacey creative players, please. And as Abhik@3 says, let’s not get carried away.

    OMG, WOW!!!!

    What a match, I’m a little worse for wear having told the lass I would have a pint per goal, so you can imagine, I’m stone cold sober… lol

    Never in my life would I have expected us to whop 6 past a top 6 team, not in a month of sundays… I am so impressed with the lads today, they all derserve a massive pat on the back for this, especially Routledge, the guy played his socks off & what more can I say, I’d give them all 9 or 10’s for today peformace & we’re still unbeatedn at home… 🙂

    HWTL,…. fantastic!!!

    BA in Toon – I think the Villa fans will be miffed that Young didn’t get his chance & that Carew screwed up his peno but thats the breks,… lol

    I think they took us too lightly thinging after last weeks result & that we were just promoted that we’d be an easy ride…. WRONG!!!!

    Who need revenge when we can just walk all over you like that.. lol

    If it interested anyone, this game I made for 70 minutes counting of passes.

    Only 11 times we passes the ball 5-6 times or more without. loosing the ball during the first half. from that 3 golas happend (first – 5 passes, second-6 passes, third – 9 passes 7>out>2)

    Only 10-12 times during the second half we passes 5-6 passes or more, another goal was made from that.

    another goal from a corner (I wasn’t counting the 5th goal) and another fast goal, number 6 of the game.

    on the other hand, we passed the ball 1-3 times more then 30 times and lost the balls the most with High passes and/or long balls. Only one goal was made from 2-3 passes.

    Also, about 70% of the balls we loose are due to High/Long balls. the moment the ball leaves the ground, it takes longer time to get to the player and gives more time for the deffence, and we are not learning nothing from this, at least not learning enough.

    A comment from their site, still cant believe they were shite today. Now revenge is done with we can move on just hope the lads are motivated like this all the time and CH has got his winning formula.

    This was as hapless as the debacle at Stamford Bridge last season.
    More embarrassing as this was bloody Newcastle. Almost the same bloody Newcastle that we condemned to the drop 16 months ago, only older and more decrepid.
    However, what was the same as the humbling at Chelsea was the spineless, couldn’t-give-a-shit attitude as the players heads went down to the level of a snakes ass-hole.
    The youngsters were cut adrift by the senior players, none of who come out of this with any sort of credit. They should all give this week’s wages to the Acorns. And pay the expenses and tickets of the travelling fans.
    Even a new manager this week will find it difficult until he can bring in a few players.
    I don’t want to be the pessimist after one bad defeat but last season we went on a serious downer after Chelsea and this will have to be different. If not, then things don’t look good my friends.

    And yes, O feckin’ Neill has got a lot to answer for.

    Oleg G, you are a miserable basket.

    Solaidback, My missus would normally offer to bring me a beer, if she was here. 6 beers in 70 mins that would really pee her off.

    Got to say, I’m absolutely chuffed. Went into the match hoping for 2-2. Never expected to be 3-0 up within 30mins!

    Williamson was bloody class aswell like, every slide tackle was perfectly timed and he looked solid all match.

    Who needs Steven Tayler?

    HWTL!

    We were just brilliant and perfect this game. No body would of expected us to do that to a top Premier League. 6-0 is just an a55 wopen.
