Geordie Fans Set Twitter On Fire After 6-0 Road Win


After Newcastle’s scintillating display at QPR tonight, Newcastle fans took to Twitter in droves after our  biggest road win in the league since way back on 29th September, 1962 when we hammered Walsall 6-0.

On 8th May in the home game against Walsall – we lost 2-0!!

    Pre season I predicted 5 losses, 6 draws and 30 clean sheets, have to confess to being a little worried at the time but it’s not looking so daft now.

    Don’t wait up too long. If there’s no more posts in half an hour, chances are the older ones among us are plastered and the younger ones nicely tucked up bed before school in the morn.

    Oh I also said that Gouffron would be top scorer, but it could be anyone now with even the defenders getting in on the act.

    Big Sam has to give Shelvey a call up, surely?

    3 out of the 4 Central defenders have now scored most of the midfield and all our stickers that have played … Keeping clean sheets scoring from set plays/corners God times have changed and for the better – hope we carry on and steam roll back to the big time – happy days

    So happy with tonight. Got to be one of our best performances of all time?

    No complacency now, wolves have just been battered, and everyone expecting us to thrash them on Saturday, they will react and will be dangerous, need to keep on our toes

    Someone said earlier that Shelvey would be our biggest loss should injury strike, I reckon he’s right, on his current form he could play for any of the top teams even Barca.

    Not trying to jinx us but there hasn’t been our usual crop of the I word. Let’s hope it continues.

    I see that the academy team is top of their league, with all the the negative stuff I’ve been seeing about them I was expecting to see that they were bottom.

    U23s aren’t doing to well though!

    Aah well looks like Lesh’s prediction was right and everyone has staggered of to bed so I’ll follow suit.

    Good night all and have some pleasant dreams of our impending thrashing of Wolves.

    still cant believe it, it is like playing champ man back in the day but Rafa is running it. Everyone on knows Jonjo is class but to get it out of him is a task. Mitro is starting to get close to target and when he does he might put shearers record to shame,lascelle,jonjo and a few other player are really young and hopefully a season at nufc ,when we hopefully move back up again will provide a backbone of a sqaud ,still buzzing NUFC TOON TOON

    Yes. We beat Vila 6-0 at home, second game of the season after promotion last time.

    Last really big score away from home I remember was beating beating Notts County 7-1 in the league cup. I think Andy Cole might have scored 4 goals that night.

    I think you need to re-assess Mitrovic mare. He will bever be in the same class as Shearer.

    I can see a bigger club ftom the PL coming in and offering big pounds for Lascelles in January, if he continues playing and leading as well as he is.

    Agree Mitro won’t ever be in Shearer class (few are) but with guidance from Rafa expect he can become highly effective Championship striker and fit into PL.

    As well as Lascelles it wouldn’t surprise me if Likes of Hayden and Shelvey aren’t reassessed by PL clubs but if progress is sustained can’t see anyone wanting out or Rafa looking to upgrade so soon. Some of these players look to be his first building blocks.

    If big money did come in would be first test of Ashley’s resolve and whether he has truly and fully bought into the Rafalution

    Difficult to tell from radio how much the comprehensive victory was due to everything clicking or QPR being rubbish. Hate commentaries (especially as biased as last night’s started out) but no alternative in this stream free world which apart from Cup games haven’t experienced in long while.

    Rafa talks so much sense and has the charisma that fans have missed since SBR and KK. I have said before that for me this has the feel of the early days under KK but there is more substance to the overhaul under Rafa as KK concentrated on first team and when he left the foundations were not as strong as they might have been.

    On thw subject of domination kast night, statistics dont lie and we had something like 31 shots at goal to their 11.

    I think the most obvious statistic is that particularly over the last 3 league games against opposition who are/were fancied to give us a run for our money, they have created little or no threat to our goal whilst we have pummelled 10 goals. I didnt see last nights game but I read the southern oress reports who are usually biased against us and this time, they were gushing compliments.

    This squad looks professional, hard working with a no nonsense approach. Rafa has worked mirackes in such a short space of time.

    As I seem to be only one around this early in UK anyway might as well muse on.

    Last night was unexpected not only because I thought QPR (can’t bring myself to call them the R’s in same way as can’t get my head around the berks on Talksport and such talking about The Lane or The Bridge – what!?) would have presented sterner opposition but because I felt Rafa’s teams were built more pragmatically.

    Previous 2 away games when we took lead hadn’t prepared me for the apparent onslaught that followed.

    I like that what Rafa says (such as once window has closed we can all concentrate on what we need to produce) is more than a cliche but is rational thought which he translates into reality 🙂

    As you say press have been complimentary and certainly the biased commentary team over here on R5 (were the local team rather than the National ones -not that they love us!) did comment that we fully deserved the emphatic win.

    I did say some weeks ago that after 2 opening defeats the following games against more fancied opposition through Aug and Sept would tell us just where we are.

    Well as you point out the clean sheets and professional approach has confirmed we are the real deal as we had hoped.

    Long way to go and other immediate tests still turn to come Wolves,Norwich, Villa but I am approaching with confidence not just because of recent displays but Rafa’s after match comments which are not simply sound bites but the words of a focussed manager who knows what he needs to do and what his team have to do.

    Also it is interesting that after Brighton game some commentators thought Brighton hadn’t perhaps been up to their usual level. However as with Derby and probably last night it is more a reflection of how we are beginning to control games and opposition than simply they not being on form.

    It was certainly hard to judge QPR on last night’s commentary as i listened as we seemed to nearly score every few minutes . In cold light of day though perhaps it was really that we have clicked and certain players are beginning to show their suitability for a Rafa team.

    A 6-0 win away from home and in London was most unexpected. Only wished I could have been there. Shelvey’s second goal was top class in any division. He looks a class apart under Rafa’s tutelage and a lot of fitness work.
    Mitrovic back with a goal too, and suddenly there is no talk of whether we have enough goals in the team. Be good to see whether Mitrovic, Gayle and Persz feature in the same side. What a feast well beyond expectations.

    Yes I saw comments but he didn’t refer to their previous spending ( before his time though) or that it was well thought through purchases made from recycled money.

    Perhaps he should console himself with the positive thought how much worse it would have been had Messrs Sissoko, Winjaldum Janmatt and Townsend been tearing up “The Bush” for us and we hadn’t spent any money 😉

    Anyone spotted Barnsley which is sitting right behind us in third. Without Armstrong’s assistance, they scored four last night!

    Will they prove to be dark horses of the Championship or will their bubble burst. It’s a funny league and we’re not assured of promotion unless we carry on in the same vein as last night.

    Theses games can be dangerous as vendettas between opposing players can occur.

    Still too early to tell whether Barnsley (and Huddersfield Fulham) can keep up their early season form but for us even Bristol Rover’s,Derby type away performances should suffice. Last night is of course the preferred option but not going to get carried away. Doesn’t hurt as someone commented yesterday for opposition to begin to fear us though
