Newcastle had not scored since we ripped West Ham apart 3-1 at Upton Park on January 18th, and it took until the 92nd minute for Newcastle to score, but it was a brilliant Loic Remy goal at the death that was enough to give Newcastle a terrific 1-0 home win – after losing the last five in a row at St. James’ Park – and it was only our second win in the last ten games.
Alan Pardew celebrates late winning goal
The manager was ecstatic when Loic scored, and he said Remy was the best player on the pitch today, as the Newcastle manager had this to say to the press:
“It was beginning to hang around us that lack of a goal.” “It was an important goal and our commitment and work-rate are what probably saw us over the line.”
“Although we have 40 points, in the scheme of the last few games it was important. The best player on the pitch got the goal.”
Newcastle made up just a little bit for the 4-0 surrender to Tottenham in the last game, but that pathetic performance could still cost some of our players their Newcastle careers, come this summer’s transfer market.
Loic Remy – got the dramatic winner today
Every single player today gave his very best for the side, and the 50,000 crowd stayed with the team right until the very end – and it paid off handsomely.
There’s a moral there somewhere.
It was a huge win for Newcastle United today. 😀
