Robbie Savage, Gary Lineker and Michael Owen seemed to be in awe of the Newcastle United fighting performance at the Etihad Stadium tonight, and it was a terrific 2-0 win for the Magpies.
Gary Linekar – the best I’ve seen Newcastle play in yonks
Robbie Savage had criticized Alan Pardew some weeks ago when he said that Alan Pardew looked a broken man after the 1-0 loss away to Stoke City.
But this is what Robbie said tonight, and he points out he said Alan still has the dressing room – interesting selective memory Robbie has:
“Newcastle were brilliant tonight!” “I got hammered on here a few weeks ago when I suggested that Alan Pardew still had the dressing room. I’m listening?”
Gary Lineker thought his performance was the bets he has seen the Magpies play in yonks – translated – a very long time:
“That is the best I’ve seen Newcastle play in yonks – amazing what a couple of wins can do.¨ “Newcastle’s Sissoko is the best Sissoko in the business. He is a hell of a player.”
And former Newcastle striker Michael Owen – who seems to be making a name for himself as a sensible pundit had this to say:
“Sissoko is a proper player. And I’m delighted for Ryan Taylor. I can’t begin to explain the hard work and pain he has gone through.”
Ryan is currently leading our Man of the Match poll and it was an amazing performance form the Liverpudlian tonight – Alan Pardew though he was simply brilliant tonight.
Things are continuing to look up for Newcastle but we must beat Liverpool on Saturday to make it four wins in a row.
