Newcastle Stroll To Easy 2-0 Win At St. Mirren


Newcastle put up a good performance tonight at Love Street, to win this game against St. Mirren rather easily 2-0, with two goals in the first 26 minutes.

Mathieu Debuchy scores Newcastle’s second goal

Newcastle were much the better side, and created many chances but could only put two of them into the back of the net – and it was a second clean sheet for the Magpies, following the 1-0 win on Sunday at Blackpool.

Papiss Cisse was making his first appearance of pre-seaso, and he almost scored after just 3 minutes, but then he was on target after 19 minutes.

So it didn’t take him long to break his duck, and it was a nice goal from Newcastle.

Cisse was looking lively and he fed Sammy Ameobi on the left-wing, and Sammy gave Cisse with an almost perfect return pass, and the number 0 controlled the ball nicely and then hit the ball into the top corner of the net past a helpless David Cornell – pure class from Papiss.

And then after 26 minutes Newcastle got their second goal and it was French International Mathieu Debuchy who scored. Debuchy was put through nicely by Vurnon Anita and he beat the offside trap, and finished very nicely with a shot that was low and hard into the back of the net.

There he is wearing Wonga – Cisse looked really sharp

Newcastle created even more chances in the second half, and as we expected Alan Pardew brought on local lad Conor Newton for his first appearance of pre-season after 75 minutes, when he was brought on for Cheick Tiote, and he got a great reception from the St. Mirren fans. A nice gesture from manager Pardew.

Newcastle saw out this game fairly easily, although in the last few minutes St. Mirren had a good chance, and probably should have scored.

Papiss Cisse looked sharp tonight, and both Dan Gosling and Sammy Ameobi had good games for the Magpies, and maybe Gosling deserves a few more chances in this pre-season.

It was another very good performance from Newcastle, with a number of our players having good games and looking good.

But it’s only pre-season and we probably shouldn’t make too much of it – but it was our third win in five pre-season games. 😀

Next up are Rangers in Glasgow next Tuesday night, and then SC Braga at St. James’ Park the following Saturday,  in the final two warm-up games before we meet Manchester City on August 19th in the Premier League.

We’ll bring out a full match report later.

    I wonder what Kets thinks of us loaning out Abeid.

    Interesting that he’s gone to Panathinaikos, let’s hope he gets game time, would be good experience playing if he was playing in the Champions League!

    Jak Alnwick and Rob Elliott share a clean sheet. That’s unusual.

    Good to see Cisse and HBA get over an hour, other than that it’s a standard pre-season game.

    I love this blog and I no everyone has a right to an option but god it’s laughable the transfer talk on here!!! Total rubbish!!we are clutching at straws about signing a striker for 7mill and Madrid are bidding 85 mill on one player,are club is in a poor state!! No ambition and run by complete toss!! Yes we do have some top top players at are club but once again no ambition and planning is are down fall, yes we have missed out on a few but if we paided the wages and the fees we would get players in,the stadium and fan base is not enough to convince players to sign anymore.90% of the deal is money and unfortunately are club won’t spent it!! Ps people like Plana are killing me!!

    Plana – So you’ve seen SS1 and read the large number of reports stating Gomis had agreed a contract ages ago, it was the fee that was the issue. Then summarized it for us all. Cheers bud.

    Why is that tripe ? . Championship level club with poor strikers, will be easier for a young lad to adjust as he is close to home. We did send Sammy there and he did relatively well.

    Where would you send him then almighty footballing God ?

    Just listened to the Barton Interview as I missed that one. The kid is a nacka but cant fault his honesty and calls it as it is. Which in todays footy world full of gobshite quotes is quite refreshing.

    Ok ive calmed down.

    In theory we could be on the verge of something instead of the usual nothing. We shall see……

    I await the shirt shots and/or official club confirmation.

    Take your clueless drivel elsewhere. Lyons president blasted out at a journo for claiming it was Lyons fee holding it up, not the contract.
    Ausal asked the journo to come sort out the contract, since he knew everything already.

    Now sush.

    @ Plana

    Curtis who ? 🙂 . Sure we could send Campbell to one of the lower leagues but he should be playing against decent quality opposition.

    Even if he isn’t first choice striker for Borough there are 40 plus games in the Championship plus the cups so he will get his fair share of playing time.

    Birmingham is a good option as well with Clarky .
