Newcastle players celebrate Newcastle’s first goal yesterday

Here is the best video we have at the moment of the goals from yesterday’s 5-1 win, after Dailymotion deleted their highlights for whatever reason.

Newcastle remain in 6th place in the league, but gained 3 points on Everton who were beaten 1-0 at Sunderland.

    Some of you guys are an absolute joke. Slagging the team off rotten in the first half and then making out that it was a tremendous performance in the second.

    Fantastic result, great run for us, but beating 9 man Stoke at home is hardly deserving of that much praise.

    Definitely an exciting time to be a Newcastle fan and we’re looking better and better for the top 8.

  • 2 Lilongwe Geordie // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:33 PM

    First off cracking result in the end.

    But we seem to be getting carried away a bit. Even before today Stoke had one of the worst records for goals conceded away from home. We managed 4 in 45 minutes which sounds good, but taking into account their 9 men, isn’t anything that special. They are a very average side to start with.

    In the first 45 we were second best. Outplayed, out passed and out fought. Once they had a player dismissed the complexion changed.

    The saying goes you can only beat what is in front of you, and we did that comfortably, but the only part of the game worth looking at and analysing in terms of what we did well and what we did badly is the opening 40-45, which really doesn’t make us look good.

    HBA looked great when they were down to 9, he is great at running at players and with all that extra space the game was made for him. Unlucky not to score.

    Still, I agree with Blaydon on the changes for Arsenal Tiote in for HBA and Mbiwa for Santon.

    Our performance 1st half was dreadful and much improved in the 2nd half. Obviously the 2 red cards have a hand in that but you cannot slate people for being happy with the way we attacked in the 2nd half. Get off your high horse.

  • 4 Blaydon-Toon // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    Sunderland cost me on my accumulator £545 FFs !

  • 5 Tommyy // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:36 PM

    Very poor first 45 but decent showing second half as you’d expect playing 9 man stoke at home. Nothing to get too carried away by but it showed good drive and commitment to continue scoring.!

  • 6 Blaydon-Toon // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:38 PM

    A much needed boost to our goal difference and it’s about time we had a few decisions go our way as we must of had at least 4/5 pens not given before

  • 7 Ciaran // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:39 PM

    Isn’t it funny how TDS always has an excuse to be slating someone or other. Either they are too negative about the owner/manager/team or they are too positive about a 2nd half performance in which we scored 4 goals.

    He is right though, some ‘fans’ are a joke. A joke that he himself is a part of.

  • 8 roy // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:40 PM

    Whats not to be optimistic about Eh? Now Arsenal, let’s be having you!

  • 9 Blaydon-Toon // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:41 PM

    Ps so glad they let Pappis have the pen even tho last time that happened he blazed it over ! Great pen btw

  • 10 LocalZero // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:45 PM

    Credit to Pardew for going for the jugular. Finishing the game with 3 strikers and HBA on the pitch!

  • 11 toonking // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:46 PM

    team vs arsenal


  • 12 Jail for Ashley // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:46 PM

    First time I’ve had the pleasure of watching a live PL game in my house this season only to have Micheal Owens boring monotone voice whining out the TV.

  • 13 ToonDarnSarf // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:48 PM

    Great result but ridiculous how some people get carried away. 5-1 at home against 9 man Stoke is not an amazing achievement and a draw would not have been a disaster.

    Today isn’t really relevant to where we are as a team.

    Delighted to be where we are in the table though. But hoping that most fans will still be happy if we finish 8th.

  • 14 LocalZero // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:49 PM

    Think a few people are being a bit harsh about the ref being our MOTM as well. You make your own luck as well sometimes. Great through ball for Remy and a great run from him, causing all sorts of bother and they get a man sent off. So the ref didn’t create that situation – NUFC did.

  • 15 lesh // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:49 PM

    Ahhh, Mr Ciaran, what was it were saying about Ben Arfa earlier?

  • 16 MosesNUFC // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:50 PM

    my team for arsenal:

    Debuchy Braziliamson Colo M’Biwa
    Cabaye Tiote Sissoko
    Ben Arfa Remy Gouffran

    I don’t think we should drop benny as he would really provide us the attacking threat to score against arsenal. As pardew normally does against top teams, we really need to attack arsenal and get in their faces. Don’t really want benny’s confidence to be lowered if he’s dropped against arsenal.

    But why not be optimistic, what ever team pardew puts out i’m going for 2-0 newcastle!!

  • 17 Ciaran // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:52 PM


    I’ve given him plenty of credit. If he can do that consistently I will retract what I’ve said about him, until then I will have the same view.

  • 18 JP...from The Rock // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Brilliant win today but we need to replace Shola in January. He offers far too little. If we had say Gomis for example he could hold the ball up just as well as Ameobi but be a goal threat also, something Strolla is not. We can’t keep on carrying him through matches.

    If Remy gets injured we’re fcuked so we need a striker in the January window asap.

    Glad to see Cisse score but he needs to up his game a bit more to be the player he was when he signed. First stay onside and then the goals will follow.

  • 19 lesh // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Jail for Ashley @12……. Owen does whine but the mute button’s handy – if of course there’s a live commentry available from a radio source!

  • 20 Ancientcoptic // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:54 PM

    Liverpool beating City… I hope they enjoy the moment, it won’t last.

  • 21 lesh // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:55 PM

    Scouse gits’ve scored. When will their bubble burst?

  • 22 ToonDarnSarf // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:56 PM

    Make extreme statement and argue the point vociferously…retract when proved wrong…make totally different extreme statement and argue that point vociferously…rinse and repeat…

  • 23 JP...from The Rock // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:58 PM

    I want Liverpool to lose as I see them as our main rivals for a place in Europe. I see Man City winning the league but they should win this and do us a favour.

  • 24 ToonDarnSarf // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:58 PM


    It’s like watching Sharapova play tennis. If doesn’t matter how attractive the game is, the volume still spoils it a little…

  • 25 Jail for Ashley // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:58 PM

    I for one am not getting carried away but will be disappointed if we don’t finish top six as I think an Ameobi upgrade will achieve that.
    If Lpool win this I think they’ll win the league.

  • 26 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Dec 26, 2013 at 5:59 PM

    Second best until the first sending off.
    Adams was running the show until then.
    Then WHAM BAMB great result and for the goal difference.
    Instead of Hughes lambasting the Ref. He should throw the book at the first guy – stupid!
    Question: Why did they let Remy take the penalty.
    My MOM – BEN ARFA for when were poor he looked like the only one trying.
    Should of had two more penalties late on.
    Got to play better than we did first half against Arsenal as we will get stuffed

  • 27 JP...from The Rock // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    I have to mention that Willo is doing us proud with his solid defending. He is really consistent and it will take a terrible performance from him to be dropped. Saylor you’d better get comfy on the bench.

    PS… Man City have just equalised! Yes! 😀

  • 28 ToonDarnSarf // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:00 PM


    You’re right. We really need a player like Shola but we also need that player to offer a goal threat.

    I like Shola as he offers something different to our other forwards, but
    I’ve said since the summer that we need someone better to push on.

  • 29 Ancientcoptic // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:03 PM

    Liverpool were on top of the world there for 6 minutes.

  • 30 Ciaran // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:06 PM


    I’ve made the same point about HBA for months, as well as Santon and neither have proven me wrong yet. So you’re chatting out of your jacksie there son.

  • 31 ToonDarnSarf // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:06 PM


    Top 6 means finishing above at least 2 of Spurs, Everton and Man Utd. I really can’t see us finishing above the other 4 and to be honest I think they all have better squads overall.

    It would be fantastic if we do but I really think we should see 8th as a good finish. Would be great if we could give it a go though!

  • 32 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:08 PM

    god owen commentating is not just boring but absolutley grating!!!
    shut the f**k up!!!
    great win but poor 1st half and imo remy was that reason
    poor 1st touch, slow on the ball and couldn’t beat his man
    hopefully them goals will kick him on for the next half of the season
    for me cabeye was man of the match worked from the 1st min till the last and a great goal!

  • 33 JAMSHA // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:11 PM

    any links for the full match download link? torrent only

  • 34 Jail for Ashley // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    It’s been awhile since we were in agreement, I remember John Barnes being demoted and replaced by a DJ on Channel five,I hope BT see sense and pump this dull boring little man.

  • 35 Big Pappa Cissé // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    About time we gave someone a good stuffing under Pardew (although they had 9 men for 50 minutes) .

    Ben Arfa was great today and showed why he is too good for the bench . Stoke couldn’t handle him and he was being doubled up on even when they had 9 men . He also won a penalty as well . Was still greedy at times but everyone wanted to be on the score sheet today .

    Team for Arsenal :






    I would drop Santon for M’biwa to deal with Walcott and we have a real chance especially at home .

  • 36 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    You know it must be tough being both Santon and Benny at times!

    …they never seem to can win with some on here 🙁

    *it is a good thing this blog is mute as a fish though! One can only listen to soo much before ones ears fall off!

  • 37 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:17 PM

    Stoke should have legitimately had two people sent off today. The first sending off was harsh and was undeserved, but the second was a last man – clean on goal situation in the box. Instant red. Shawcross should have been sent off.

  • 38 Ciaran // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:19 PM


    If you find it possible to defend Santon after his abysmal performance today then that’s your prerogative. The man is not a defender.

  • 39 Jail for Ashley // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    He sounds so false getting himself worked up over that goal, mute might be an option, how would I go about complaining about him to BT sport.

  • 40 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:25 PM

    haha jail merry xmas
    yeah to think he’s actually getting payed instead of some up and coming good commentator and i doubt he’s cheap!, is a joke
    good game tho i hope liverpool get hammered!
    plus btsport has the most dickheadish host! ginola was right the other week!!:)

  • 41 yorkshireToon // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:26 PM

    Loved Benny today but he won’t have space like that against arsenal an they’ll have a lot more of the ball.

    I’d swap Benny back for tiote and get sissoko back out wide (was rubbish today in middle) hopefully just a one off.

    Had a tenner on Ben Arfa to score 2 or more for £200 was crying when he didn’t take either of the penaltys and hit the post and bar!

  • 42 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:26 PM

    jesper so are you saying your opinion is more important than others then!??

  • 43 Jail for Ashley // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    Merry Christmas manxpie.

  • 44 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    jail i just had a look on twitter and there’s lots and lots of the same opinion but the complaints they got about the score board being at the bottom tells me they don’t listen! 🙂

  • 45 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:35 PM

    Looking forward to what Mark Hughes has to say. Can’t help but feel for the man today. Even though I think Hughes is a sh!t manager.

  • 46 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:38 PM

    anita it was his players that f**ked up stupity on both sendings off
    don’t feel sorry at all!
    for once good refereeing! how about ya think of it like that lol

  • 47 WWSBRD // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:40 PM

    Cisse gets a standing ovation after he has done nothing for months, the team give him the ball to take a pen and he scores…blokes Christmas is complete by god I hope he uses that confidence and finds some form

  • 48 Big Pappa Cissé // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    Fair play to Rogers at Liverpool like . On Paper his team isn’t brilliant with the exception of Suarez and he has them in the title race and giving City a tough game at the Etihad .

    Amazing to think they are missing Sturridge & Gerrard as well . One player I think HBA could learn from is Coutinho, his vision is brilliant and he links play so well . Benny is the better dribbler but if you could somehow mix in Coutinho’s interplay with Ben Arfa’s offence we would have some player on our hands.

  • 49 manxpie // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:48 PM

    wwsbrd yeah but he’s obviously well liked and tbh the whole game showed the teams togetherness
    arfa shoulda had the 1st pen but remy needed a goal
    remy shoulda had the 2nd to get his hatrick but cisse got it and tbf wat a penalty for someone low on confidence
    plus you could say in the last game ameobi should’ve had that penalty but arfa got it
    seems a great team spirit to me throughout the whole squad great to see!

  • 50 lesh // Dec 26, 2013 at 6:58 PM

    Ciaran……@17…… reserving our position now are we?

    Wonder if Ibiza knows you’ve climbed onto his fence? It must be getting a bit top heavy now!
