    A great result against Liverpool on Sunday and a win I have to admit I didn’t see coming and wrote about accordingly. So well done lads. However while we savour victory there are more things to be concerned about than not. Questions remain over the players and manager being able to keep the level of graft and application for every game or was the Liverpool game a flash in the pan. I for one think this merely postpones the inevitable changes in the way everything is run at Newcastle United. Sad to say I’m not optimistic about the next games, in particular the Spurs game but I would love to be proved wrong. Vast change is needed at Newcastle United and one win doesn’t change that fact one iota.

    Still on a bit of a high after a proper pulse racing win yesterday! Great effort,but that effort should be NORMAL. We’re just not used to it (lowered, sedated expectations).
    I was pleased to see Colo have a more settled game. But it was no more than that tbh. Put under no pressure for most of the game.
    He has this shocking habit of staring at the ball, particularly when the opponents are attacking down the right flank, and jogging to his ‘station’ on the near post point of the 6 yd box, marking fresh air while 3 or four of the opposition pour in behind him waiting for a cross with Mbemba and Janmaat wondering which one to pick up. Watch out for it, it’s really something to behold. It happened this game, fortunately the ball in was invariably shoyte and it rolled to his feet and he could just knock it clear.

    Well done lads. Now more of it.

    The problem has never been live fixtures against the senior sides. It’s not hard to get up for the big games beamed live around the world. It ‘s the bread and butter stuff we can’t be arsed with. That’s why having a squad that can realistically challenge for a European spot and domestic cup is so important. Gives the players something to fight for, and the lack of it is surely why we have been so duff, for so long.

    Santon
    I gave Anita my Man of the Match – best game in a TOON shirt, tackled passed covered every inch of the pitch – seemed to be playing a lot higher/more forward midfield with Colback playing behind.
    Followed by Ding Dong -who I thought filled the hole between midfield and attack linking up play.
    Dummett also had his best game for a while and put in some crunching tackles – makes a change.

    Good atmosphere in the Gallowgate yesterday – place was bouncing second half

    I only hope that this win will not remove the pressure that MA must have been feeling to reinforce our squad in the January window.
    Without an improvement, especially in defence, we’re still on course for relegation this season.
