Newcastle Player Scores Twice To Get Rotherham Win

11:49 pm, Sunday, March 30th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 27 Comments

Two goals from on loan Newcastle full-back James Tavernier gave Rotherham a 2-1 home win over Bristol City on Saturday, and they are 4th in League One on 75 points, and only 5 points away from automatic promotion.

James Tavernier after scoring on Saturday

Tavernier played the whole game and scored after just 70 seconds when Ben Pringle’s free-kick was headed clear but from 25 yards out, Tavernier smashed the ball home for a terrific goal.

After 48 minutes Bristol City were level with Wade Elliott scoring a good goal, but then after 60 minutes Tavernier fired home a free kick from just outside the penalty box, to give Rotherham the 2-1 win.

James played the whole game and Haris Vuckic came on after 80 minutes.

Tavernier has now played 21 times for Rotherham with 5 goals, and he is having a successful loan spell and Haris Vuckic has 17 appearances and four goals, but he is not a starter at the moment at Rotherham.

In other weekend games Conor Newton and Adam Campbell both started in St. Mirren’s 2-2 draw at Inverness CT,  and Adam was substituted after 64 minutes in a tactical change.

Shane Ferguson was an unused substitute in Birmingham’s 4-2 home defeat to Bournemouth.

Comments welcome.

    sazzer

    is that the same list that had Ferguson on it

  • 8 Blofal // Mar 31, 2014 at 1:02 AM

    Well we do need fullbacks… not sure if Tav is up for it though.

    The Micha Richards rumours I think are true. Just pure speculation but I think the club are already looking at replacements for Debuchy… and he is English.

    Without massive investment we are doomed next year. I think these players will leave or have already left.

    Guti
    Cabaye
    Remy
    Debuchy
    Shola
    Obertan
    Newton
    Coloccini
    Gosling
    Saylor
    Ben Arfa
    Santon
    De Jong

    Not much of a team left after that. Cisse will stay unless for silly money.

    Seeing as I’ve gone into a deep denial about the toon to preserve what’s left of my fragile mental health, I’ve been paying greater attention to England’s potential fortunes at the World Cup and all of a sudden am starting to imagine we might do something. Sterling, Sturridge and Llalana have emerged just at the right time as real gems and that erstwhile Sunderland lump Henderson has also become quite a player. Quarter finals and a bit of excitement on the cards too far fetched?

  • 10 Blofal // Mar 31, 2014 at 1:07 AM

    Jimmy supporting England is not that dissimilar to supporting Newcastle.

    Waves of anger and dissappointment.

  • 11 beermonkey // Mar 31, 2014 at 1:14 AM

    jimmy

    ur not wrong it depends on how hogson plays them

    will he put sturridge out wide to accommodate rooney up front, or play rooney behind sturridge

    the Southampton players to have them all from the same team could be a huge bonus same with the 4 from Liverpool.

    is hogson the man to get the best out of what looking like a great attacking bunch of players, the defence is looking a bit weak at centre back

  • 12 jimmysmith // Mar 31, 2014 at 1:28 AM

    Yes, you get the feeling Roy’s perhaps more your Pards than your Rodgers or Potchetino and there is a question mark about balance and getting your best 11 on the pitch in their best positions. Llalana on the left of Henderson and Gerrard, or Llalana ahead of Gerrard in a midfield two and perhaps Milner on the left. Rooney in the Suarez role, Sturridge through the middle and Sterling up and down the right flank?

  • 13 beermonkey // Mar 31, 2014 at 1:39 AM

    thankfully gerrard plays a lot deeper for his club now and can do for England
    rooney could go out on the left a position he has played for united a lot might be worth it if were trailing in the last 20 mins to bring on some1 like llalana

    for me I would look to build around sturridge Henderson gerrard sterling they play week in week out and familiarity could prove to be a great asset

    I don’t wanna see glen Johnson at right back though

  • 14 Stewin' Toon // Mar 31, 2014 at 3:08 AM

    Any thoughts on our final run of matches? Does anybody see us realistically winning anything but Cardiff outright?

  • 15 Greebol1892 // Mar 31, 2014 at 3:44 AM

    We don’t need replacements for Debuchy. We have MYM, Anita, Santon and R Taylor for RB. None of who are suitable to play there but our dipshit manager will persevere with it.
    As for being linked and “after” around 20 players while 12 players leave……
    I expect us to sign THREE players (maybe FOUR if we get 2 or 3 loans in) and let FIVE go.

  • 16 Greebol1892 // Mar 31, 2014 at 3:51 AM

    Stewin’ Toon

    To WIN games we have to:

    1. create chances (no creative players)
    2. shoot on goal (we prefer to pass it backwards / give it away)
    3. attack the opposition (our manager is defensive and clueless)
    4. stop goals going in at our end (not with Coloccini there)
    5. know how to change the game with inspired subs & tactical nous (haha non-existent with our hapless manager)
    6. actually play with some spirit and effort (Pardew has lost the player’s respect & they are already on their holidays)
    7. have something to play for (we are safe and have no chance of qualifying for Europe and our squad is too light anyway)

    BUT there’s always hope!

  • 17 Himanshu Dhingra // Mar 31, 2014 at 6:15 AM

    If things continue as they have been. Come the end of Next season we will get relegated.

  • 18 Himanshu Dhingra // Mar 31, 2014 at 6:48 AM

    Pardew was reminiscing yesterday and telling players all about the day he won the JPT Trophy.

    How that was the best day of his life.

  • 19 mindshaft // Mar 31, 2014 at 7:47 AM

    I can’t support England, following one sh1te football team is more than enough for me

  • 20 sparky55 // Mar 31, 2014 at 7:53 AM

    NOPE…the best day of his life was being dragged out the gutter by Ashley who paid up his debt to Lambias’ casino and gave him a job at newcastle when nobody else would even consider him for a job cleaning football changing rooms after being caught knobbing staff at Southampton.

    Not long now lads…the debt is nearly paid off.

  • 21 Himanshu Dhingra // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:09 AM

    Alan pardew

    He gambles what he wants.

  • 22 Himanshu Dhingra // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:11 AM

    Sack Pardew!

    He will still have top pay the debt. Wouldn’t he?

  • 23 Himanshu Dhingra // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:19 AM

    Did Anyone see the interview when Alan “God’s gift to football” Pardew blamed the Midweek game?

    It is beyond Pathetic.

  • 24 ilovetoon8788 // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:24 AM

    about our run i think we should amass about another 5 more points.

    an upset win, and a couple of surprise draws.

    top 10 finish might be hard depending on other results.

  • 25 mindshaft // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:36 AM

    I am so fed up of hearing the sane old crap that pard’s keeps spouting after every defeat – it wasn’t us, not good enough etc etc – he must have said this after at least 10 games this season but yet does nothing about it – players obviously don’t respect him or his methods which are more suited to old school English footballers

  • 27 mindshaft // Mar 31, 2014 at 8:53 AM

    Wouldn’t be surprised if we lose all our remaining g games and finish 11th – surely that would mean pard’s sacked for not hitting targets or more likely Ashley would be over the moon as he wouldn’t have to pay bonuses
