The Brazil kit Newcastle wore yesterday looks really good, and of course when Newcastle have worn this strip this season – at Tottenham, at Manchester United and at Crystal Palace today – we have won all three games and haven’t conceded a goal.
Newcastle players celebrate after Yohan Cabaye’s first goal
As we said in our match report Newcastle should wear this kit more often.
And the first goal at Selhurst Park today was reminiscent of the winner at Manchester United two weeks ago, and Moussa Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye again combined brilliantly, and Yohan slammed the ball into the net about an inch inside a post, giving the goalkeeper no chance at all.
Yohan who continues to do his talking on the pitch this season, spoke on the Newcastle web-site immediately after the game:
“Moussa is always looking for the little pull-back and I just try to be free and then make sure I can hit the target.” “I’m happy to score, happy to do it for the team and if it means we get three points then that is even better.”
“We love playing in this yellow kit. We have worn it three times now and won three times.” “It may be the third kit but we like it and maybe we should always wear this kit away from home!”
And Newcastle passed the ball around so much today – and had 67% of possession that there will be comparisons to the way Brazil play.
OK – so I was the first one to point that out – but let’s be honest – Newcastle are playing some lovely football at the moment – and we are winning games too.
Now what could be better than that?
Maybe finishing in the top four?
Howay The Lads!!
