This Is Our Heroic Man Of The Match Last Night

Ran Taylor’s last match for Newcastle was in August two years ago, when he suffered the first of his two very serious ACL knee injuries, but he returned last night to the first team and helped Newcastle win their first ever game at the Etihad Stadium,  and it followed 11 successive defeats by Manchester City, and it was the first time in nine years we had beaten City, and the first time in 14 years we had beaten Manchester City away from home.

Ryan Taylor had a terrific game for Newcastle United on his return.

Ryan Taylor in action last night

Gabby Obertan had another good game for the team and ran a few miles last night at the Manchester City defense, and the Frenchman should have had a penalty in the second half, when he was scythed down in the box.

Mehdi Abeid again showed why Panathinaikos are so keen to sign him, and Mehdi has to be given more first team games after yet another good performance for Newcastle,

And local lad Paul Dummett had maybe his best game ever for Newcastle at center-back,  and showed he is constantly improving  in Newcastle’s back line, and handled the costly Man City star forwards simply brilliantly.

Moussa Sissoko showed he is one of Newcastle’s best players and in great form,  and scored a simply brilliant goal after 75 minutes to wrap it up for Newcastle.

But this was a team effort above all, and one of Newcastle’s best showings away from home in many years and it was epitomized by Ryan Taylor who showed hos courage and guts and perseverance last night with a brilliant display for Newcastle United.

We were proud of every single Newcastle player last night as they fought for the shirt.

    R. Taylor was brilliant yesterday, as was the rest of the team. Im usually one of pardews biggest critics but credit wheere its due, he got it spot on yesterday. And thats got to be the first time in a long time that weve actually turned up in both halves.
    17yr old armstrong gave the most expensive british defender transfer a good battle aswell.

    According to the papers Raylor got a standing ovation from the dressing room – well deserved.

    Looks like Aaron’s went to Michael Harding the physio after scoring and he must also be involved in Ryan Talors treatment so looks like we have someone there who is really helping team fitness and attitudes. That’s a real plus for team spirit. Professional is good.
    Loved the fans doing the Poznan in front of Sissoko after his goal – good payback after last years disallowed goal against City at SJP.
    And if the team applauded Ryan Taylor in the dressing room well that says it all. If we are back on track let’s stay with it – consistency and momentum are good for supporters health .

    That was the best I’ve seen us play for a long time. We wanted it more and challenged for everything. I wish we were playing sunderland at the weekend!

    To be honest I didn’t have any hope of us winning last night, but when I saw Raylor saving that certain goal, I had lump in my throat with some goose bumps….. Then I started believing
