Magnificent Magpies Shock League Cup Holders – Win 2-0


This was the first time Newcastle had beaten Manchester City for nine years and the win broke a string of 11 consecutive loses.

Ryan Taylor – showed all his experience tonight
Incredible late goal line clearance and he set up first goal


The bottom line is a young and inexperienced Newcastle side beat money-bags Manchester City as they showed an unbelievable win to win tonight – and that’s exactly what they achieved – all credit to our players tonight – and the manager Alan Pardew.

Newcastle went ahead after just six minutes with a great opportunist goal from Rolando Aarons – and it was Ryan Taylor who challenged for the ball and put it through to Aarons who hit the ball home in one movement with his right foot to shock Manchester City.

That was the first Newcastle goal in the last six game against City.

Manchester City came at Newcastle but Dummett and Armstrong both had decent chances to increase the lead before the break.

It was all hands to the pump as the defended valiantly against the City onslaught but then after 75 minutes a brilliant individual goal from Moussa Sissoko.

That put Newcastle 2-0 and the Frenchman got the ball outside the box and drove past two City players before chipping the ball over the goalkeeper – a wonderful goal from in-form Moussa.

After 86 minutes Ryan Taylor made an incredible clearance off the line as Newcastle were hanging on – and that’s what the lads did though 6 minutes of added time for our best win for a very long time – and three wins on the trot – two away from home.

Every player did their part tonight but none as much as Ryan Taylor – who showed all his experience and how he cleared that ball off the line with five minutes to go well – it was incredible.

This was a man inspired – and he deserves all the accolades he will get for a very successful return to the side.

We may not have the class this season – but our lads work their socks off for the shirt – it was simply an unbelievable performance from them tonight.

Did I mention it was unbelievable? 😀

HOWAY THE LADS!!

    Absolutely over the moon. Best performance I’ve seen from Newcastle of late – proper guts and glory stuff – and the first match in a long time that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching.

    Raylor probably MotM for me. Haidara, Abeid, Dummett and Aaron’s a very close joint second.

    abeid, arrons and armstrong all great up coming players.

    saylor, obatan, sammy and cisse all turned things round and look much more like the players wanted in a team.

    most important thing of all this squad is now looking more like a squad with cover.

    the most important player we need to buy january is CB.

    aye, I think Taylor is underrated. He is not flash (apart from free kicks) but he just a solid pro.

    Can’t believe that. Where did it come from? You win nothing with kkids. They all put in one hell of a shift but Obertan ran himself into the ground.

    If Dummet can play a CB like that against the defending champion, why do we need a new one?

    Abeid MOTM…Raylor with an incredible block but Abeid was impressive, destructive and showed a serious amount of maturity in that performance, winning the ball shielding the defence and showing he has more ability than Colback.

    Got to give it to Obertan I think. Could have had 2 goals and got us a penalty without that ref, huge threat down the right all game knew when to hold the ball and when to pass, kept pressure off our RB.

    obatan MOTM for me he was running up and down the pitch throughout the game.

    really every single one of them were great, the only player i didn’t see much from was armstrong but what do i expect, it’s city we playing so attack was not what i expected and we still did much more than i was expecting.

    @toonking: Saylor? He wasn’t on the pitch was he?

    @Blackely: Best thing for me was seeing Ober try a run and his legs all but holding up neon lights screaming “NO”. For the second half, he was more or less our only outlet and, like you said, he ran himself into the ground. Brilliant.

    The players were walking around like bosses after that, and rightfully so. That is the best game I have seen this year.

    http://www.whoscored.com/Matches/890887/Live

    According to whoscored, Haidara was out best player.

    Did we find our 4th CB choice in Dummett tonight? Him and Colo looked a good partnership, and it frees up the LB spot for Haidara.

    Abeid MotM. Raylor did well all considered, but so did pretty much our entire team. 6 of their starting eleven each cost more than our entire starting 11. We showed guts, graft and a bit of talent. Abeid just stood that bit above. If Tiote isn’t fit, surely he Abeid starts for Anita. If Tiote is fit, Abeid has to start alongside him. Two actual wide men, and if Cisse doesn’t make it, I’d give Arma the starting spot again.

    cisse wasn’t on the pitch either, basically i’m talking about the form over the last month.

    saylor as CB has been much better than willo and all the mistakes we critised him for recent seasons, i’m stunned how good he is doing as CB, he didn’t just play the last two league games he was in the previous cup games.

    Huge credit due to the team today and also to Alan Pardew who took a young, inexperienced squad to play the holders of the cup and premier league champions, and came away with a memorable victory.
    Howay the lads !
