Alan Shearer Reacts To Newcastle Win With Wry Tweet


After a very poor first half performance at Bournemouth this afternoon the only oddity is that we managed to score a goal and after being dominated by Bournemouth we went in at the break 1-0 up.

In the second half we played only a little better but as the second half went on Bournemouth seemed to tire a bit, so we held out for an unlikely 1-0 win and move the 4th bottom of the league table – above Bournemouth.

Alan Shearer – it’s all about winning

The game of football is really about only one stat – goals scored – and since we scored more than Bournemouth we qualify to get all 3 points.

In fact we got all 3 points today. 🙂

    mitro didnt have as bad a game as many think, he may not have been his normal brute up top today, but he won most of the headers from there corners, and he did have a vital part to play iin our goal,,

    he did defend for the team

    Coloccini was brilliant today. I’m not a fan of Anita. Always goes sideways and backwards with the ball. Wijnaldum was anonymous today. Bad call from McClaren not to take him off.

    why aren’t you being negative, this game was played in a pardew liike manner, your recent posts tell others your not really so bothered about the result, you just want entertaining football therefore this game today should be getting negetive words from you.

    you must be on a drug overdose because all the times pardew got these results you’d be negative about it and this game here is the second time we’ve played a boring style against a team you’d put miles below us, the first was sheff wed, you could also say the second half of the chelsea game too was a pardew style game where we sat back asnd nearly lost.
    put it this way had this game been managed under pardew you’d be screaming in anger any day.

    Can’t speak for catchy but I can say the big difference is how we’ve played in previous games, this was a one off performance compared to last 5 or 6 games so it’s acceptable now and then to get a result. However under previous regimes it was the normal display.

    you don’t need take it too serious he’s famous to this block as an extreme pardew critic, so extreme that sometimes you can’t help putting up that sort of stuff, sort of like the things toonbrother gets when we’ve kept a clean sheet with colo.

    Hard to say but ” well done Stoke ” !
    If we put in a shift like they’ve done today and some physicality so they weren’t bullied by Chelsea antics then we’d be well clear of the lower half of the league.

    A big big win for us today but we were lucky saying that we should have beat Sunderland about 3 nil and were robbed with the red card and Stoke should have been pounded as well so it evens itself out over the season as they say…..

    I was wondering how long it was going to take him to change the formation though should have changed it after about 10 minutes sometimes 442 will work but we got outnumbered when he changed it in the 2nd half they never bothered us in the last 20 minutes but I think the game would have certainly been easier if we had changed it earlier

    What about our move for the goal though? That was as slick a counter attack as you are going to see and Perez hitting it early with his weaker foot was brilliant keeper had no chance

    Really? F@cking really?

    Now it’s just about the results and not the performance?

    Give your heads a shake man honestly…. We were totally shit all over except from Elliott and Collo who look to keep fighting whilst the rest faltered and panicked.

    Keep playing like this and we will get relegated, shame Bournemouth didn’t get anything from the game because they fully deserved to win in fact they looked like us against other teams, but I guess though that Bournemouth fans now know how it feels getting robbed like we did against the mackems.

    i think its you thats on drugs mate, i do not expect us to dominate every single game we play in, i can take winning ugly in games too,

    Shteve has came in and has had to work with a lot of players that have been playing with a loser mentality, i know thats hard for you to accept, but is true, there first thought was defend, there 2nd thought was defend, there 3rd thought was defend, and it would take a piece of magic from a player to win the match or get a point,

    i dont know if you seen it, but even though we were hammred today in play, we still defended as a team, and it was a team goal we scored, simple clever football, one touch stuff that was way ahead of anything we seen under P45,

    under p45, it was 30 yard screamers becasuse we never had runners, good free kicks or solo wonder goals, all great on the eye but in reality, these goals are not scored every week,

    we made enough chances in the past 2 games to carry a bit of luck into this one,

    i can safely say we are now UNITED again

    3 points is 3 points. 2 clean sheets thats getting better.

    We will get better we will look a better team as the season moves on. But I still believe the philosophy that we will attack better wen Sissoko shows up. If he doesnt we dont.

    How after 12 games are our players still so unfit????

    Bournemouth pressed evrything we did and kept going at us, most of our players were fcuked after an hour?

    We need to stop playing Tiote and Anita together, Anita benched nothing to his game at all that benefits us. In Jan we need 2/3 players that can inject some much needed pace to the team. Pace scares the life out of teams but when they only have to worry about Sissoko running through they can mostly attack.

    Anyone who gloats about today’s result are no better than the mackems when they gloated about the victory against us.

    Welsh, true not all teams put in a performance every match but in our situation they could of least tried, they didn’t.

    nezza – “they looked like us against other teams”.

    I thought that as well, we’ve played a few games where we should have got something. They were miles better than us today and if truth be known should have won.

    It’s a massive 3 points in the bag but a totally unconvincing display.

    For all the moany ppl on this blog who are still not happy, if Pardew was in charge of us today we would have lost that game, & he would have said after the match we couldn’t play well cause the opposition didn’t let us play.

    Bournemouth played fantastic football today, with no end product. There’s alot of teams in the premiership who would have struggled against them today, most prob would have ended 0-0.
    Only a well drilled attacking side like arsenal, or a team full superstars like city or united could have dominated possession today.
    They were at home today & really up for a relegation fight, we would not have matched them if we went toe to toe with them. We had to defend, & we got a clean sheet.
    It was either that, or playing good entertaining football & getting beat 3-1, & all the worry of still been in the relegation zone.

    Yes we want entertaining football, but it doesn’t have to be every single game, sometimes we have too switch tactics & grind out a result. I’m glad we were able to do that today, & we can play both styles.

    The Blind Pews on here don’t realise that Elliott is a much better keeper than Krul; his positional awareness and distribution always have been slicker than the Dutchman. Watch any playback of Krul’s positioning and it’ll confirm my view. The tell-tale on Anita’s contribution is how ‘ramrod’ straight his back and shoulders become … when he plays badly (often) it always looks like he’s got a long blunt stick shoved up his jacksy. Today he was (again) awful.

    What I find particularly galling is when that dick McClaren gurns away on the touchline acting-it-out for the cameras and deluding himself that he makes a difference; he doesn’t and never will. What happened today was daylight robbery, but hey, three points is three points!

    I dont think steve can talk about character when we were played off the pitch. Any more of that rubbish and we’ll be staying in the bottom 3 for longer. I prefer smc to pardew but that looks like the same luck and keeper brilliance as spurs with krul . And please dont play sissoko in a 2 man central midfield in 442. People who want that dont understand the game. He could only get away with that against feeble opposition.

    It’s little to now surprise when Newcastle perform poorly in these away fixtures to lesser clubs. Our hearts are rarely sufficiently in it, despite these being the very games where we would most realistically gather the points to allow us to finish top eight each season. Is it because we populate the side with players from bigger clubs in lesser leagues who are used to just turning up in these games against smaller clubs and taking home the points. That clearly won’t wash. We were of course just lucky that Bournemouth couldn’t finish. Or do the players see these games as an irresistable chance to be out of a spotlight that must seem relentless. Somethings not right and hasn’t been for years.

    i think theres some posters that were brought up during the keegan/sbr era,which is not there fault,but newcastle have been a mid table club for the best part of 50 years.
