Magpies Continue Win Streak – Go 7th Top – Match Report

Newcastle United’s amazing revival continued at The Hawthorns today and after a close first half, Ayoze Perez scored an incredible goal a minute before half-time to put Newcastle ahead, and the lads basically took  control of the game in the second half and Fab Coloccini got his first goal of the season and his sixth in his career for the Magpies with a bullet header, and both goals were set up by Dutch right back Daryl Janmaat.

Ayoze Perez after scoring his 3rd league goal of the season

Newcastle are now in 7th place and if Arsenal beat Swansea in the late game we will stay in 7th for the next two weeks before we play QPR at home in our next game.

Mike Ashley was at the game and the owner saw yet another good, well organized and committed performance from a young Newcastle side, and Mike Williamson and Ryan Taylor get on in the second half after returning from injury.

It was great to see Ryan make his return to the league, and in his first game back at Manchester City he was terrific and our Man of the Match.

Newcastle lost Steven Taylor toi injury and Rolando Aarons was also unfit, but Alan Pardew preferred young Perez to Papiss Cisse in the starting line up.

It was an even first half with Sammy Ameobi almost scored a great goal when his left foot looped shot bounced off the top of the cross-bar, and then just before half time – what could even be the goal of the season was scored by young Perez.

It was a good move from Newcastle and after they moved the ball upfield Remy Cabella put the ball out to Daryl Janmaat on the right wing, and the Dutchman hit the ball to Perez, who flicked the ball behind him and into the back of the net.

It was almost the perfect time to score a goal after a fairly even first half in which the Newcastle youngsters were playing some good football and closing down the opposition, and Mehdi Abeid looked a very efficient central midfielder for the Toon – what  a very good player this lad has looked in these last three games and he seems full of confidence.

Newcastle didn’t make any changes at half time, and it was a side full of confidence in the second half and we went 2-0 up after 62 minutes.

And it was that man Daryl Janmaat again who delivered another perfect cross from the right wing, and Fabricio Coloccini hit a bullet header past goalkeeper Foster.

Daryl had had a few dodgy games earlier in the season, but has started to look a very good right back over the last few games, and he’s looking like a great acquisition for the Magpies.

Perez went close to a second goal near the end of the game, but England goalkeeper Foster made a decent save, and Newcastle easily saw this game out and controlled the game in confident fashion.

Newcastle move up to 7th place in the league table, and it’s youngsters like Perez, Abeid, Ameobi, Aarons and Dummett who have helped turn the season around in dramatic fashion over these last six games.

And that was our third successive clean sheet and the fourth in the last five games. 😀

Everything seems to be coming together for Newcastle United and we expect a full house at home to QPR where another win could see us move even higher up the league table.

I’ll be sure to have the old blood pressure pills very handy in case we make it six wins on the trot.

In short – a very good professional performance from the lads today – with our youngsters looking really good.

Wonder how much young Ayoze Perez is worth right now in the transfer market?

    I thought cabella got better as the game wore on. Everyone needs to give him some time.

    Janmaat, colo, dummet, colback, sissokho all had great games.

    Perez took his goal amazingly well. He looks a real bargain.

    Considering we had 7 genuine first teamers missing I thought we were brilliant today.

    TOON fans absolute briliant today – from before the kick-off to well after the final whistle.\

    Lets bring that noise/atmosphere to the next home game.

    Keep the faith — onwards and upwards

    what i think about this season is their are only really 2 team who at the minute should be 100% certain of a win, them teams are southampton and chelsea.

    of all the weaker teams in the league i’d say their is 2 teams in that group which came be seriously annoyed to not get a win from, leister and burnley.

    generally though i think it’s a league which is looking so unpredictible at the minute.

    everton 10th
    liverpool 11th
    spurs 12th

    southampton 2nd
    west ham 4th
    us 7th

    Congrats, after 20 years supporting the club I got my first visit against Liverpool last week. Indeed, once you are in it is so intense the result almost doesn’t matter.

    Really a dream come true. In the end the result didn’t hurt.

    I travelled from Canada so I cannot really make it every week…

    Looks like we may not have to worry about losing players to ACN in Jan, Morocco have now refused to host it due to Ebola crisis so if none else steps up at this late stage it”ll have to be cancelled.

    Shame for all those who have already booked tickets / hotels etc but good for toon

    With all the people scoring I’d expect Tiote and Saylor also put their names on the sheet soon enough )

    Thump/JFA from previous

    Fully fully agree, 100%
    At the time the protests and angst were fully justified based on our woeful form since just before January
    Full credit to the club for turning a corner cannot fault them, but that doesn’t mean the fans are fickle or disloyal, absurd claim

    In Dummett, tbf i think he’s been decent both at CB and LB this season
    89 Norcal
    Eh? Abeids praise is unwarranted?
    Behave the lad has been fantastic, he’s come in and slotted in seamlessly with performance after performance
    In fact all the youngsters that have come in have

    In Ashley we trust. A lot of other owners would have crumbled under the weight of the supporters, but Ashley is an arsewhole and put a finger up to us. AND IT’S PAID OFF.

    ‘In Ashley we trust’
    What a completely absurd statement, if anyone involved with the club is going to derail our recent upturn it would be him, on course for a top six finish??? Let’s sell, Sissoko, Krul and Tiote

    Fantastic result! I love the way the young lads play! This is my exciting lineup:
    Id like to see Perez as a #10 with Cisse back at Striker. Exciting times for us!

    Great result again. Wonder how log we can keep it up. And @USAGeordie what sense is moving Sissoko back to right mid when he’s performing his best down the middle. RTaylor isn’t our best left back? And Cisse is misfiring? Crazy talk.
