In what will go down in the 18 year existence of the Premier League, as not only the greatest, but also the most sensational comeback ever, Newcastle today scored 4 goals in the last quarter of the game, and got a point with an unbelievable 4-4 draw – after being outplayed and 4-0 down after just 25 minutes.
Two goal Joey Barton – in action today
And in their last 9 games at home against Arsenal before today, Newcastle United had scored just 4 goals, so they managed to equal that in just 23 minutes today at St. James’ Park.
So don’t ever believe nonsense about damage limitation and all that ***** from people, but believe in miracles and they might just happen,.
That’s certainly what our Newcastle players must have been thinking today – and you just cannot make this stuff up.
And if anybody doubted Alan Pardew’s commitment to Newcastle, just watch his reaction to Tiote’s wonder goal after 88 minutes.
We think Alan is very much like Chris Hughton before him, he is an excellent motivator, and seems inspired to be in the job of Newcastle United Manager.
And if anybody ever doubted Cheick Tiote’s commitment to Newcastle, then watch his reaction to scoring his first ever Newcastle United goal on 88 minutes, when he probably smashed the world record in the 50 meters dash!
After what happened today – which is getting the Newcastle team fabulous press by the way, it’s interesting to hear Alan say after the game that it was the most incredible game he had ever been a part of.
Welcome to Newcastle United Alan.
The TV commentators in today’s game, when the lads were 4-1 down, after Joey had just scored his first penalty, said the Geordie fans hadn’t given up on the game, and they added – where did you last hear that kind of support when your side was 4-1 down at home.
Again, we welcome the commentators to Newcastle United.
But Newcastle are a unique club, and when I had the privilege to grow up on Tyneside, there was only one team that ever mattered, and it wasn’t Sunderland.
My father followed the team around the country in the 1950s – when they were really good (FA Cup winners 1951, 1952, 1955) – and I have to think he was watching from up above today, in what was one of the most amazing display of guts and glory seen for a long long time,.
How many teams who had 4 goals blasted past them in the first 25 minutes of the game, and were still 4 goals down after 67 minutes, would have had the guts to level the scores?
We may not have the best team in the land, but we have to believe that after today, Newcastle can indeed survive in the Premier League this season.
We are so proud of the lads today, and they are a credit to the Newcastle United club.
That’s the biggest compliment I can possibly give them.
