Sunderland 0 Newcastle 1 – Famous Win For Magpies


Newcastle again came out on top at Sunderland today, when they were second best in the first half, but a great Ryan Taylor free-kick after 63 minutes, curled into the top left hand corner for a wonderful goal, and it was enough to give the Magpies all 3 points.

The game kicked off with Newcastle in white shorts with their famous black and white stripes, and Sunderland were in black shorts with their red and white stripes.

Sunderland got off to a fast start and threatened the Newcastle goal almost immediately, and Jack Colback made a good run down the left wing and his cross went right across the goal with no Sunderland player there to tap the ball home – that was a good chance for Sunderland after 8 minutes.

The almost immediately Sessegnon, who was looking good in midfield, hit a good shot that Tim Krul saves well to his left.

It was again Sessegnon after 10 minutes, who had a good shot that was only just wide of Krul’s left hand post.

And after 12 minutes it had been all Sunderland, but then on 15 minutes it seemed that Larsson handled the ball on the goal line following a corner.

Newcastle were screaming for both a penalty and a red card and referee Howard Webb consulted with his linesman but disallowed the Newcastle appeals.

That was a huge call in Sunderland’s favor by the referee, and it was judged to have been accidental; hand ball – yeah right.

Then on 23 minutes, from a Cabaye corner, captain Coloccini had a free header but put the ball wide of Mignolet’s left hand post.

On 23 minutes Krul made another good save and the Dutch goalkeeper looked in excellent form, and than Cabaye was just a little lucky to get away with a dangerous foul on Bardsley.

Yohan got a yellow card, but it could have been red, since his studs were showing as he lunged in at the former Manchester United man.

On 26 minutes a good Seb Larsson corner found Ghana International striker Gyan completely unmarked, but he headed the ball wide, and missed a good chance.

Newcastle were starting to come more into the game and after 32 minutes Ferdinand backed off Yohan Cabaye, who took the shot from 25 yards out, and Mignolet made an excellent save – that was poor defending from Ferdinand.

On 33 minutes Mignolet plucked a cross out of the air, when he was surrounded by both Sunderland and Newcastle players,  and then Ryan Taylor received a yellow card.

Tim Krul then made another terrific save when he turned a Sessegnon shot around the post – a wonderful save from the young Newcastle goalkeeper, to keep the score level.

Then on 43 minutes a long cross found Shola Ameobi about three yards from goal, but Shola headed just wide.

As the game evened out a little, the referee blew for half time, but there was little doubt that Sunderland had been the better side in the first half, but hadn’t taken any of their chances.

Tim Krul had made several fine saves for Newcastle.

There were no changes made for the second half.

Cheick Tiote was getting closer and closer to a yellow card, and the Ivorian was testing referee Howard Webb with some of his tackling, as Tiote tried to get a grip on the center of midfield.

The first 10 minutes of the second half were fairly even as Newcastle came back into the game, but like last week,  Newcastle seemed to have very little cutting edge up front.

On 59 minutes Gyan went down in the penalty area, and Sunderland appealed for a penalty, but the referee waved play on – it was nowhere near a penalty.

With 30 minutes go it was still anybody’s game with Sunderland looking more polished than Newcastle.

And then on 62 minutes Gutierrez broke through and hit a decent shot which Mignolet saved easily.

Then from a free kick out on the left, Newcastle went ahead when Ryan Taylor put in a great free kick that swerved and sailed into the top left hand corner of the net, as Mignolet missed the cross come shot.

Another goal from a Newcastle set play, and Ryan again showed what a great squad player he can be for Newcastle.

Newcastle were ahead probably against the run of play – but who cared?

On 66 minutes Cattermole made one of those stupid – over the top tackles of his – this time on Gutierrez and the Argentine rolled on the pitch in agony after the tackle.

Lee only got a yellow card and Newcastle had a free kick eight yards outside the area.

Before the free kick could be taken, both Joey Barton and Phil Bardsley got yellow cards from the referee, and Ryan Taylor then put the free kick way over the bar.

Newcastle had gained confidence from the goal,  and were surging forward trying to get a second goal that could have wrapped up the game.

On 73 minutes a good cross from the right was well taken by Newcastle  goalkeeper Tim Krul, who looked very good today in the Newcastle goal.

Sunderland were coming forwrd all the time to try to get the equalizer and on 83 minutes Gyan should have done better when he hit his shot wide of Tim Krul’s left hand post.

On 85 minutes Newcastle brought on Williamson for Cabaye as Pardew tried to tighten up the Newcastle defense  and get a famous victorty.

Then Dan Gosling was brought on as Newcastle looked for fresh legs to protect their lead.

Phil Bardsley committed a dangerous tackle on Colcocini and the refree rightly sent off the full back.

Newcastle held out, unlike in the same hame in January and our boys did us proud today, with all three points.

While Newcastle were second best in the first half, they again showed a resilience and have yet to concede  a goal this season.

A fantastic win by our boys today, when we needed it most, and now we can gloat – again!

A note to Mike Ashley – sign those players up next week – PLEASE!

Bottom line – a great win for Newcastle today.

Howay The Lads!!

    Just seen Steve Bruce in Wickes on Stamfordham Road (that’s like Castorama in France, for Niafron). He was screaming his head off at the manager demanding the money back he spent on a kitchen sink.

    Scrappy game, but expect nothing less in a derby – a GREAT win. Defence were brilliant and Krul made some amazing saves, think he just cemented his no 1 spot.

    We need a little more bite up front and LB. Raylor is better going forward and is good at dead ball but defo not a defender.

    Now any chance of a CF and LB before the home game against fulham on 28 Aug!!! Now, hurry back Arfa and get fit Marveuax, we defo need more attacking options.

    i thought the defence was fantastic today (including krul). don’t think simpson will get so much praise but he seemed to win most of his tackles for me and got forward when he could, looked excellent in my opinion.

    Proud of that performance. Working for each other! Tiote was the only player who played terribly, hope he is match trim soon.

    Our Argies are bulletproof, relentless warriors!!!

    Cabaye was awesome today. Great little player i think. Great battler for such a little guy. Krul was good. CB’s were both solid again which is really good to see but Raylor is my motm simply for playing so well again at lb. He is a rm and to play lb like that really gives us another option if injuries hut our lb (if we sign one)

    we are desperate for a quick striker the few times obertan went through none of our players kept up and he had to turn back.

    Amazing 3 points today over the moon.

    Needless to say we weren`t very good at all but a wins a win.

    performances aside two great results. Should hopefully instill a bit of confidence in the lads, with the additions we want for a few positions and the players returning i think we are a good capable team.

    A good win which will hopefully lift the players as much as it will lift the fans!

    My only concern is that Ashley will see that result and wrongly think that we are good enough as we are to stay up. He needs to realise that with a good Striker and Left back we could be looking at a top half team once the new players have bedded in.

    I’d rather we spent 15M on a decent striker than split it 7M LB and 8M striker.

    Raylors done OK and we have Ferguson, Perch & Dummett until January … buy a LB then.

    Tiote was man of the match for me today. Jonas was a close second and Colocinni 3rd. Tiote was the opposite of Ameobi today. Not his best performance by his standards but excellent natural ability made up for it. He came through at the most critical moments in the game right after the goal -usually when we are at are most vulnerable. Without his assured ball conrol and the numerous freekicks he won in frontof the back four, we would have capitulated as we normally do

    Cabaye’s challenge and yellow card gives me more confidence than I had before in our new boys.

    Cabaye did really well. Tiote is off the pace still, but tried 100%. Mr T will be back very soon.

    Then Cabaye & Tiote will rule.

    I knoow its a newcastle forum but anyone think arsenal are poor? i think they will struggle to better the results of manu, manc, chelsea, totenham and liverpool. Do we now have a top 6 or a top 3? Outisde the top 6 its anyones for the taking, i would love to see us finish seventh, i think then we could attract a better calibre of player. Fingers crossed we dont suffer from second season syndrome.

    Aye, Cabaye looks like a player – busy, doesn’t shirk a challenge, good range of passing (not all came off, but you can see he’s got the vision). I reckon he’ll get accustomed to the pace of the premier league in no time. For a liitle fella he puts himself about!

    Now for Del Boy to come out and claim we are in the position we want to be regarding players.
