Newcastle have now taken 4 points from the last two (home) games and Alan Shearer was again impressed by the spirited performance of the Magpies in tonight’s game which ended in 1 -1 draw with high-flying Mancsheter City although Aguero’s goal after 14 minutes was clearly offside and should have been disallowed.
The lads were roared on by the crowd and we equalized after 31 minutes with a great goal from right-back Vurnon Anita, who was praised by Benitez before the game for his overall attitude.
The great Alan Shearer
BBC pundit Alan Shearer had this to say at the end of the game tonight on Radio Five Live:
“Certainly on tonight’s evidence, and on Saturday’s, there’s now a togetherness,” “The fans appreciate now that the players are giving everything.
“They’ve given themselves an opportunity – three points on Saturday and a point tonight which is not a disaster. On tonight’s evidence, the players are certainly with Benitez.”
The Newcastle players again give their all, but we just didn’t have the luck to get all 3 points, but that Aguero goal was massively controversial – because it was two yards offside and it was clear for all to see so what exactly was the linesman doing?
We needed the 3 points but one point from this game is a good one – we’ll take it.
And it snaps the 12 game losing streak in the league against the Citizens.
Now the lads need to show the same guts and spirit at Liverpool on Saturday and we need to pick something up there.
We are still in with a chance of survival but need wins.
