Sissoko Strike Does It – Newcastle Win 1-0 – Ryan Taylor Injured


Newcastle did what was needed today at home to QPR is what was a fairly close game, and it was Moussa Sissoko – captain for the day – who scored the winner for Newcastle after 78 minutes for the lads to get their sixth win in a row – and the fifth win in succession in the Premier league.

Unbelievable.

oussa sissoko scores qpr

But it was also a sad day after Ryan Taylor had made a triumphant return to the Premier League for Newcastle and he was taken off after 35 minutes with what looked like an injury to that right knee of his – and that dampens this victory for Newcastle United.

We just have to hope the injury is not that bad – but Ryan’s expression going off told it all – it’s so tragic for the player.

The goal came fairly late when Moussa got the ball from Sammy Ameobi in the penalty box, and the Frenchman turned beautifully before smashing the ball into the back of the net.

This was also our fourth clean sheet ina row so kudo to a makeshift Newcastle defense, and Newcastle move up to 4th place in the league at the moment – well who would’ve believed this?

Just a minute lets just hit myself in the head – ouch – well it must be real and I’m not dreaming. 😀

    Socks is looking more like the player he was when he first signed. Powerful runs and deft finnishes.

    We really did well to day. Not perfect but well.

    Next game is harder but we could do it 🙂

    P.S. hope Raylor and others get well soon.

    Good to get a win again after the break, could have easily tripped up but onwards and upwards! Would have been good to have scored earlier as it was a bit frustrating at times but hopefully the confidence to play has been reignited and the players will show more of what they can do. Tough break for Ryan Taylor, but more of the squad used and still winning. Final possession was 55% but there was a lack of quality in using the ball to open up the defence and create scoring opportunities. I thought moving Sissoko back made it more difficult for him to drive forward with the ball and may put the game at risk and although not the best holding midfielder he found space and played very well. As did they all to get an excellent result.

    @89Norcal: Sissoko, mate.

    MotM is a hard one tbh. Sissoko, Perez and Colback all tying first place. Probably Perez best game for us, I reckon. Just needs to learn that it’s okay to take first time shots and not get the ball fully under control before lacing it. In fact, he should just learn to lace it.

    Colback plays the “Guthrie” role perfectly – quiet, often goes unnoticed, but manages to take the sting out of the attack just enough to let the defence mop up. Today was a perfect example of that – if you weren’t watching him, you’d probably think he had a shite game.

    As for Sissoko… what can you say about him? The player he was in France is now the player he is in England. Absolute bulldozer of a man.

    Sissoko was immense, but Jack Colback does soooo much running, and is so important to us. Raylor was class till he had to go off, I hope its just precautionary! We were superb till Raylor went off too!

    I completely agree with Pardew that Sissoko has replaced Cabaye. He’s beyond a doubt the leader of the team.

    he was massive today..that finish was a amazing & he bossed the midfield

    my vote is for Colback though Moussa performance was more pleasing to the eyes.

    Colback was everywhere in midfield and his defensive work was world class. His performance and Sissoko confidence in him, is why he was able to drive forward at will knowing the brilliant Colback is behind him doing the mopping up work.

    QPR had no answer to Colback.

    will they be? What is news on Aarons, he is missed for sure… the speed and the unpredictability….

    gutted for Raylors sitter as Cabella set him up nicely… he should have ripped the net apart….

    first of all gutted for raylor i’m just hoping that as he walked off its a good sign that it won’t be a long 1

    onto the game brilliant 1st 25 mins where we should’ve got a couple but they had a very good shape with 11 behind the ball so hard to break down a deserved win though

    perez today showed wat a player he’s gonna be he wins things wriggles out of things scores things runs all over things 🙂

    sisko and colback deserve the praise but so do sammi and the much criticised willo and dummet
    they stopped everything aswell as willo showing some skills

    4th in the league !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
