Newcastle 2 Everton 1 – Ryan Taylor Wonder Goal Wins It – Full Report


Newcastle hung on this afternoon against a fighting Everton side, as they had gone 2-0 up after 29 minutes.

But then Everton scored a goal seconds before the break and they pressed Newcastle in the second half, but somehow the Newcastle side held out, and they had the luck with them this afternoon, let’s be clear about that.

An own goal from Heitinger after 11 minutes put Everton in a hole and it was a gift for Newcastle, as there was hardly any danger from a good Danny Simpson right wing cross.

But then a fantastic goal from Ryan Taylor, when he hit the ball into the net from 25 yards out with that right foot of his, when it wasn’t even a chance – a magnificent effort from the Newcastle left back.

Cabaye went off injured in the first half and Dan Gosling came on,  but it seemed from that point on Newcastle started to struggle just a little bit, and the Magpies seemed to be second best.

But as has happened so many times this season, the Newcastle lads just didn’t give up,  but were also lucky not to have a penalty awarded against them,  when Dan Gosling clearly deflected the ball for a corner with his left hand, in the penalty box.

But they held out, and took all 3 points, and are now second top of the league with an amazing 25 points from their first 11 games – with 7 wins and 4 draws – and oh yes and we are still unbeaten in the league. :D.

And while the lads didn’t play well, especially in that second half,  they somehow ground out another win today – and all credit to them.

A full report of the game follows :

Newcastle were wearing the poppies on their strips today in celebration of Remembrance day – which is November 11th and in honor of all those who lost their lives in various wars – and the shirts will be sold after the game and the funds donated to charity.

The game kicked off with Everton in an unfamiliar all yellow strip. Both teams initially were finding it hard to string any passes together as they tried to settle into the game.

After 7 minutes a cross came in form the left and Ba seemed to be pushed as the ball went for a corner. Guthrie then had a decent left foot shot from the edge of the area which was straight at Howard.

Coleman then had a good chance on the right but he shot well wide, but that was a good chance for Everton.

On 10 minutes Ryan Taylor then mis-hit a free kick on the right and it went straight out of play out to the left.

Ryan Taylor then came in with beautiful tackle to win the ball as the game had started quietly.

Then a good cross after 11 minutes from Danny Simpson was into the box and Heitinger put the ball in his own net, as Ba challenged, and Newcastle werwe 1-0 up, and it was a gift for Newcastle.

And then Newcastle were starting to string some passes together and on 14 minutes a Danny Simpson cross was just missed by Ba and Best as they both challenged for the high cross.

Then Ba was almost put through in the center but Everton just managed to clear as Ba’s first touch was poor, and Newcastle were starting to threaten the Everton goal.

On 18 minutes a nice cross form the left wing by Ryan Taylor again threatened the Everton defense as Newcastle were coming to life.

On 23 minutes Rodwell got hs head to a right wing cross but it was well collected low to his left by Tim Krul and then Osman had a chance but ht hit the ball straight at Krul.

Then Louis Saha was straight through in the middle, but the former Newcastle striker blazed the ball over the bar as Newcatsle were caught trying to play Saha offside.

After 27 minutes Demba Ba was brought down 10 yards out of the box on the right hand side. a good position for Newcastle, but Marveaux’s kick was straight at Howard.

Both sides were making mistakes as the concentration didn’t seem to be there.

And then Ryan Taylor after 29 minutes hit a spectacular goal from 25 yards out with his right foot that simply went rocketing into the net – a wonderful goal from Ryan Taylor and he was rocking the cradle afterwards, presumably for his new baby.

A terrific goal from Ryan Taylor, his 9th for Newcastle.

Then Jonas was brought down out on the left wing on 32 minutes, as Newcastle were starting to drive forward encouraged by the roars of the Newcastle crowd.

Then Newcastle survived an amazing let off as they were all at sea as Saha hit Krul’s right hand post with a crisp shot, and Newcastle scrambled the ball clear – Newcastle were lucky to survive there.

Then a left wing cross by Ryan Taylor hit the cross bar as Howard was beaten, as it seemed Ryan was determined to get another goal.

Then a surprise with Dan Gosling, the former Everton player coming on for the injured Yohan Cabaye, so Newcastle now had two fringe players playing in central midfield for the Magpies.

After 40 minutes an attempted cross from Demba Ba was blocked for a Newcastle corner and then Distin replaced Phil Neville as Phil seemed to suffer a hamstring strain.

Ryan Taylor took a free kick which was punched clear by Howard, and then would you believe it, with just 30 seconds left of the two minutes added time to go in the first half, a corner was headed home nicely by Jack Rodwell to put Everton right back in the game.

Newcastle were rightly ahead at the break but it was a terrible time to concede what was good goal by Everton.

Newcastle must come out in the second half and try to win this game without both Tiote and Cabaye.

The second half kicked off with no changes in either side. Everton were energized at the start of the second half as they looked a lot more awake than in the first half.

Ryan Taylor put in another good ;left wing cross that Best just couldn’t get to and then Guthrie hit the ball over the bar.

Sylvain Marveaux then made a good run through the middle and Heitinga received a yellow card for the tackle that brought the Frenchman down, but it seemed Marveaux was injured in the tackle, and would need to be replaced. Sammy Ameobi started to warm up and was brought on for the Frenchman.

Then on 54 minutes it seemed that Dan Gosling deflected a Saha shot with his left hand and it should have been an Everton penalty – a big let-off for Newcastle.

Tim Cahill came on for Heitnger after 56 minutes.

Everton were starting to come back into the game and were looking just a little dangerous. and then Tim Krul put his goal kick into touch as Newcastle were looking careless and were finding it difficult to string their passes together.

On 60 minutes a shot by Cahill was saved well by Tim Krul and then from a Newcastle cross Sammy Ameobi blazed the ball over the bar as this was anybody’s game now, but it seemed that Everton were starting to get on top.

On 65 minutes a great tackle save the day for Newcastle with a great tackle, as Everton continued to attack Newcastle. Good play by Gosling got Newcastle a corner as Ben Arfa started to warm up.

Newcastle were not playing well in the second half as it was all stop start, and the game was there for the taking with the next goal being so important.

A shot By Demba Ba was saved easily by goalkeeper Howard after 70 minutes as the crowd seemed to sense a nervousness about the Newcastle side.

Then Coleman found himself through on the right as Newcastle failed to clear their lines, but Coleman slipped when trying to shoot.

Then on 73 minutes Ben Arfa came on for Leon best, and maybe the Frenchman could provide the spark that Newcastle needed.

Newcastle were hanging on and on 79 minutes Sammy Ameobi gave the baklkl away and Danny GTuthrie had to bring down Leighton Baines as he was bursting through the middle.

An Everton corner after 86 minutes wenn tout to McFadden and he hit the ba wide and high, as Everton were putting Newcastle under tremendous pressure.

The game went into injury time – there would be four minutes and intelligent play buy Sammy Ameobi got Newcastle a corner.

And Newcastle held on for the win as an enormous roar went up from the crowd when the final whistle blew – that was close – but Newcastle somehow got maximum points – again..

    Three points today, and we grinded it out 2nd half. Hopefully the International break will let the players get rested up, shake off the knocks, so we can be as close to full strength for Citeh. After the next three games we will know how good we are.

    Guthrie was awesome. Surely give him a new contract? Young, hungry, english and probably reasonable wages.

    Impressed with all three subs too – Gosling, Sammy and Ben Arfa all Did Well.

    Jonas seems to really thrive when HBA is on the pitch with him, too. He went up a notch, when HBA was introduced, started to be a bit more clever.

    Guthrie was good. Gosling However… Should both tioté and Cabaye be out any longer, we need another guy alongside Guthrie.
    But who? Raylor replaced? Abeid or Vuckic? An idea anyone?

    And one more time, we must praise Pard. Do you remember when he made play Guthrie against the Wolwes.
    We were all surpized at the time, but what a good move… Guthrie was probably more concerned after that.

    Sammy is looking a real prospect like. Direct, pacey and a bullet of a cross on him!

    Can’t decide my MotM. Guthrie, Raylor, Saylor, Colo – all of them had outstanding games. Best’s was great for 30 minutes and then he clambered into his shell. Fair play to Gosling like. He was lucky with the handball and took a while to settle in but once he did he started to show us what he can do.

    Still think we made unnecessary work of it though!

    Watch Alan Pardew say that the fans were the difference today, I watched it on my P.C but I could hear the crowd spurring the team on. Wish I could afford a Season ticket cos I would have one in a heartbeat. HWTL

    AH well they are a lucky team the bubble will burst soon they are punching above their weight and so on and so on, when will the pundits just admit they don’t know what they are talking about?

    We have some players now that the pundits knew very little about as they played their game outside our shores and the pundits and journos only know of the famous names so wrote us off.

    I do not think this is luck it is a good squad well coached grinding out results on the back of a very good well disciplined defence.

    @oleg lawrenson is an ex football player and current pundit. when he was born he used to sit too close to the fire and now his face is heading south at an alarming rate. he knows nothing about football and is an utter c@*#.

    For me this was one of the more rewarding victories for us this season. To lose 3 of our most gifted players and still come away with all three points against a solid Everton side. Brilliant. We have an honest hardworking and talented bunch of players in our squad right now even James Perch :-D. And Pardew never stops encouraging the lads pushing them to fight for every blade of grass. We were lucky with the handball call but you know what we deserved that bit of luck. Only thing this team needs is reinforcement in central defence and more depth upfront and in midfield.

    Great to know that we won and now I can enjoy the rest of the day (Sunday is a working day here in Israel so, no “weekend”. But still, good enough.)

    So are we for the scums winning today? no, right? A draw I think will do.

    @Niafron I agree. We should look at Ogude – a Tiote clone in defensive midfield but he can play as a Centre back as well. That said, Gosling did better than I expected today. He doesnt “hide” from responsibility which i like and showed signs of promise. Happy he is part of the squad even though Im not sure where he should be played

    I saw some strange team, I think their name was Newcastle. They were 2-0 up after 30 mins.
    All the “giants” still 0-0. Liverpool, Man U, Chelsea.

    A very important win today with Man City and Man Utd away then Chelsea at home. Would be happy with 4pts out of them games. We need Tiote back in the side and hope Cabaye’s injury wasn’t to bad today. Nice international breake to give them time to get back. Well Done Today Lads !
