Wonder Tiote Goal Caps Off The Greatest Comeback Ever


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?

Not many.

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.

Comments welcome.

    With regard to the headline Ed, this has superseeded Albert’s lob against Scmeichel of Manyoo. Bout 30 yards out, wrong foot, perfect placement. Has to be goal of the season.

    Absolutely stunning GOAL ever ! What the classic !

    I’m surely if Ben Arfa, Ireland, Gosling and Saylor watched this game. They can’t wait to play for us again.

    The England team’s out. No Newcastle players.

    Kyle Walker gets a callup for his fine form since January but Barton, Nolan and Simpson miss out for their form over the whole season.

    At least this means they can’t go and get injured.

    Meaningless England squad anyway. I also think Capello is just running down his contract now, bloody mercenary. Still nobody English who is up the England job though, which is annoying.

    Thank god Joey’s not in the England squad, he plays for the Nation of Newcastle anyway!

    Are you watching Andy Carroll? You can count your money, you can pick up your caps, you can play for the Kop… but you’ll never, EVER feel like it does to be a part of our club again.

    3 options.

    The same thing next time just scoring all our first and then let them try to get back into it.

    OR

    Let them score only 3 (and everything else do the same).

    OR

    Score 5 next time.

    What an atmosphere today, and hopefully this will help us all shake off the post AC blues, onwards and upwards.

    Tiote is player of the season, 3.5 million AC 35 million……one great value one over priced!

    Watching now the Barcelona game. I have to say it again. Everything is in the head and depended on your spirit and will. Nothing else.

    They are playing better football, because they have more quality players, yes. But in the end, it is 11 against 11 and Barcelona just always want to win more then the other team.

    Running all game long. Messi is just running back and defending. etc.

    Our team did this today in the last 25 mins.
    So, everything is just in that box that sits on the neck.

    We are gettin carried away….loads of us were embarrassed today after 26 mins.
    We were awful and that`s the truth and we saved face with ban enormous display in the 2nd half.
    I was happy at 2-4 thinkin at least we gave a damn but endin up 4-4 was amazin.
    To the point-
    The Peno against the challenge on WILLO was never a PENO and we got lots off the REF today.
    There is no disguising the fact that we were brutal in the 1st half and we have to waken up surely.
    WILLO is not good enough IMO.

    Everyone mentions Simpson, Barton and Nolan being called up but what about Forster? He should be called up just for the experience, I mean hes playing for Celtic and has kept the most clean sheets in the SPL and surely hes better than Stockdale and Foster…

    Oh be quiet Marty.

    The penalty against Williamson was a penalty because he had two plays jump into him, knocking him down. Anywhere else on the pitch it’s a free kick therefore it’s a penalty.

    Yes we were awful the first half but so what? We came out the second half and showed Arsenal exactly what we’re about. Going down 4-0 was probably the best thing that could happen to us because it reinvigorated the players and they created momentum which will, hopefully, be carried through to Blackburn.

    Aye, I’d definitely have S.Taylor ahead of Willo. He had a good start for us but I think recently has been exposed as an average defender.

    When everyone is fit I’d play; Harper, Simpson, Taylor, Colo, Jose; Barton, Tiote, Ireland, HBA; Nolan; Best/Ameobi

    As much as I like Jonas as a person, and he obviously gets on really well with the likes of Jose/Colo, I don’t think he’s good enough. If he was to keep his place I guess it would be instead of Ireland, with Nolan playing CM and HBA playing CAM.

    If Jonas keeps crossing like he did today, I don’t see why he can’t keep going. Some of the play between Jonas, Enrique and Ranger was absolutely spot on.

    Woah there, people choosing Staylor over Willo?!

    2nd half, Willo was great. Even “Colo Who Can Shag My Wife” was sh!t in the first half.

    Steve Taylor, albeit a Geordie, is just too rash and too thick. Keep it Willocinni for the time being.

    When you’ve had a tough week and your 4-0 down you really find out what character really means. Most of these guys showed it last year – they showed it again today big time. They deserve to have that £35 million spent developing a great team around them. Lets hope we can uncover some more like Tiote. HWTL.

    Fantastic game today by the lads. But not a good game my Mike Williamson. With all of Arsenals four goals he could have prevented it. Hope STayoler soon will back. But what a comeback. Just fantastic!!!

    Marty-Toon – First of all completely disagree with you about Williamson – very tidy player who I rate very highly, but you’re right in saying he had a poor game today.

    Yes it was embarassing but we came out with a point at home to Arsenal! Does the manner in which we got that point matter if we got it?

    This result could be a real catalyst, like some other people on here you just choose to be negative and moan. Really tiresome

    Thump – What makes you think Forster is not ready / will be sold? 😮

    I’ve seen him play a bit and he seems pretty good and would much rather have him then Krul tbh… but saying that I can see Harper playing another 3-4 years so whether both Krul and Forster have the patience to wait that long or not, we’ll have to wait and see

    @Thump, while it’s a free kick elsewhere on the park, you don’t call soft fouls in the box on free kicks, otherwise every free kick would result in a penalty. That said, it makes up for the atrocious offsides ruling against Best. We need Andy Grey’s girlfriend on the sidelines making those judgments.

    For those who don’t rate Williamson, are you crazy? Excellent defender, and one of the greatest bargain bin finds ever, in my opinion. Tiote was at least at the World Cup for people to see, no one expected this from Williamson.

    Been awhile since I posted on here, but today deserves it!

    Easily the best game I’ve been to at SJP. The only one that beats it anywhere id De Kuip with “BELLLLAAAMMMMYYYYYY!!!!”

    The passion from everyone; the players, the fans, the coaches; absolutely phenomenal stuff.

    Just waiting for MotD now!

    @BBB: Because Krul has been chosen over him constantly.

    Why he isn’t ready? I think he’ll need to be blooded into the squad. He has better communication and distribution, and is about three times the size of Krul, but I think if Pardew says “Krul is out on loan, this is your time” he’ll panic.

    We still need a forward Best look like he would get injured any min now. I got this wild idea that we get back Wayne Routledge from QPR if possible and put him up front the speed he and Ranger would have up front could be exciting anyone with me or you just think i’m crazy ????????

    By the way guys our 15 top rising star youngster Adam Campbell has scored again! This time bagged one in for U-18’s. His teamate Marcus Maddison has also scored again for U-18’s. Marcus had 4 goals the other game!
