Darlow, Diame, Colback And Gayle All Start

6:47 pm, Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 370 Comments

nufc-emblemNorwich City .svg

Rafa Benitez has just named his side for the tough test against Norwich City at St. James’ Park tonight and Rafa has not made too many changes, but he has brought in Darlow in goal.

Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Karl Darlow; DeAndre Yedlin, Ciaran Clark, Jamaal Lascelles (c), Paul Dummett; Jonjo Shelvey, Jack Colback; Matt Ritchie, Mohamed Diame, Yoan Gouffran; Dwight Gayle
Substitutes: Matz Sels, Chancel Mbemba, Achraf Lazaar, Isaac Hayden, Christian Atsu, Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic

That’s a really strong bench so Raga is hoping the lads can put on a similar performance as Saturday for the first 70 minutes – but score more goals tonight.

The big surprise is that Mohamed Diame and Dwight Gayle, who missed the chances on Saturday, are given another chance tonight.

Jack Colback is fit again and he comes in for Issac Hayden in central midfield.

So that looks like only two changes from the side that started on Saturday at Villa Park.

This is a game we really have to go all out to win.

This is what Rafa Benitez has said yesterday about the game tonight:

“I think it’s important for both teams. Every game is important, but at the same time I would say that we have a lot of games to play. I don’t think that you can win the title tomorrow,”

“I think it’s important to understand that we have to carry on, we have to keep improving. We play at home and hopefully we can win. It will be close, but we have to carry on until the end.”

“We have a lot of games to play. We have to stay calm, concentrate, try to do our jobs properly and keep winning games.”

“We’ve played against Brighton, we’ve played against Bristol City and we’ve lost three games, so I think that every game in this league is very difficult.”

“They are at the top of the table because they have a good team, the same manager, so they know each other really well, and they know exactly what to do.”

“I think it will be a tough test, like the majority of them.”

About three in five fans think we can win this game.

    Didn’t really change mutch. Hopefully they play well and we get the win

  • 2 Shearer.Milburn // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:48 PM

    Really thought Rafa would have went 2 up front… Diame needs dropped imo.

  • 3 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:49 PM

    I thought NUFC had Darlow in goal tonight Ed?

  • 4 Yo-yo // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:50 PM

    sels or darlow ?

  • 5 Bambams // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:50 PM

    Perez will be desperate to get on, same for Mitro and Murphy.

    Wonder who is on the bench

  • 6 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:52 PM

    8 out of 11, Clarke, Diame and Gayle Bugger£d it for me.

    Be surprised if there’s a bingo winner tonight, don’t care so long as we beat Norwich.

    HWTL, HTWF, HWTR

  • 7 Ron Knee // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:53 PM

    What’s happened to Murphy?

  • 8 AncientC // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:53 PM

    Norwich: McGovern; Pinto, Martin (c), Bassong, Olsson; Tettey, Dorrans; Ja. Murphy, Howson, Brady; Jerome

    SUBS: Ruddy (GK), Naismith, Oliveira, Hoolahan, Bennett, Jo. Murphy, Thompson

    The Norwich fans are not happy with the inclusion of Bassong. Good sign.

  • 9 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:54 PM

    Shearer, Diame I didn’t expect to play either. He”l probably have a storrmer tonight.

  • 10 AncientC // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:55 PM

    Hopefully Perez and Mitrovic get some game time playing together, they wreaked havoc against Norwich in the 6-2.

  • 11 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:55 PM

    So much for rotation
    From last games starters Colback for Hayden and that’s it

  • 12 Rafa Revolution // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:57 PM

    3-1 to the boys tonight

  • 13 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:57 PM

    Jib

    And Darlow for Sels.

  • 14 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:58 PM

    Oh, just realised Darlow as well, 7 out of 11, happy with that though.

    Ron, yeah, thought he’d at least be on the bench.

  • 15 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 6:58 PM

    He’s picked the team ( apart from one change ) that played Villa off the park for and hour.

  • 16 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    Oh Ed had Sels at first !

  • 17 colwell // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    Sels dropped for playing poorly so how has Diame managed to keep his spot? So annoying even at home we play a lone striker unable to win balls in the air or hold the ball up wtf is the point????

  • 18 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    543 think we”l lose, are they actual supporters?

  • 19 MadisonToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    I was wrong on Darlow, Clark, Dummett, Colback and Gayle. Not great, but I am quite pleased with Darlow being included. I’m hoping for Atsu and Mitro to be introduced on the hour and Mbemba at some point.

  • 20 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:02 PM

  • 21 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:03 PM

    When Bassong was good he was very good, let’s hope he has one of his bad-uns.

  • 22 Belfast // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:03 PM

    Go on Darlow lad! 🙂

    Don’t let us down.

  • 23 NoahJ // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:04 PM

    in fairness re diame, he needs confidence and he’s only going to get that from playing well and hopefully scoring, not from being benched.

    Agreed he needs a big performance tonight though

  • 24 Ron Knee // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:04 PM

    EGB

    Perhaps he’s injured?

    A quid a month going to a good cause and having the radio link is not a lot to ask for. I’m in.

    No links today? Seriously?!?! 🙁 🙁 🙁

  • 29 Munster Mag // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:09 PM

    Help…. I thought match was on sky tonight??

  • 30 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:10 PM

    I thought Diamé had a good game on Saturday.

    He skyed that lovely cut back from Shelvey but benching him is hardly going to help him get his eye in .

  • 31 Essex Geordie Bill // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:11 PM

    Munster, nope only the live highlights as they happen.

    Not even highlights being shown anywhere later.

  • 32 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:13 PM

    I think that’s probably, in the absence of Anita, what Rafa considers the strongest team he can put out. They are the 11 men in the pound seats as things stand.

  • 33 NoahJ // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:14 PM

    Jib

    I agree actually, same with Gayle. Both’s movement was very good all night, but both will be remembered for their clear goalscoring opportunities. glad they’re in the team tonight to bounce back

  • 34 Rafa Revolution // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:14 PM

    5Live sport extra has the match

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/5livesportsextra

  • 35 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:15 PM

    Excepting Sels, who is probably being taken out of the frontline to recover from the pounding he got at the weekend.

  • 36 martoon // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:15 PM

    Anybody got a link to listen to bbc Newcastle commentary online?

  • 37 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:16 PM

    I’m pretty sure they don’t have online rights for home games Martoon. Though I may be wrong.

  • 39 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:17 PM

    At least with the team out we will match them for work rate Norwich have good wingers so we need to nullify them just wish Dummett and Gouffran could show a bit more attacking intent because Norwich are not that good at the back !

    Come on Gayle and Diame time to finish off those chances you will get !!

  • 40 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:18 PM

    I got 9 out off 11 in the rafa bingo.

    I got darslow wrong for sels, & diame dropped for murphy.

    The rest I got spot on. But I did mention I thought we should play with a big man up top because alot of teams park the bus againstus at home.

  • 43 clinath@ed // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:21 PM

    Rafa bingo……id be better off picking the Norwich side

  • 46 Legolas // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:22 PM

    8 out of 11. I rubbish at this. Lmao. Just hope we give a good performance. I get sick of being in a mood. HWTL.

  • 47 WWSBRD // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:22 PM

    Good happy with that team shame Mitro again beats Murphy to the bench is my only gripe

    Toon toon!

  • 48 SUTTY1978 // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:23 PM

    The best we have played is with Mitro & Perez up top. why are they now permanently benched?

  • 49 dok - the horrid colonial // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    just so you know, if you were to follow toon army America on facebook, they have a link for every game… helps me out while at work, or wherever… just thought id share…

  • 50 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    I’d have gone with Perez and Mitro. They caused havoc at QPR

  • 51 clinath@ed // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    I’ve got more chance……..

    ……than picking Rafa’s bingo.

  • 52 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:26 PM

    You got that right Clin lol

  • 53 Jib // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    You wait for the 10th game of the season to share that !

  • 54 clinath@ed // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    Fill in the blanks lads n lasses

  • 55 Shadow_Shearer // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:29 PM

    Sutty
    I agree, I would rather see mitrovic & perez over diame & gayle.

    Although gayle is still doing alrite, diame is very hot & cold, I feel he’s the kind of player that needs to be left out for a game now & again to build his hunger & appetite.

    But perez & Mitrovic hit it off instantly last season.

  • 56 Mitrogoal // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:30 PM

    Can’t wait for the match to start now! This is the most nervous I’ve been before a match all season so far.

    Please give me a win to settle some nerves.

    HWTL!!!!

    Let’s give Norwich a good rogering.

    Diame really needs to step it up. I praised his arrival, so far he’s let us down and been a shadow of the Hull days Diame.

  • 73 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:46 PM

  • 75 toon kk // Sep 28, 2016 at 7:50 PM

    I just hope we turn up tonight, if we don’t we’ll be well beaten if we do then we should scrape a win.
    We’re too unpredictable call, even throughout a game we can change.
    Tough one to call.

  • 106 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:07 PM

    All these crosses, Mitro must be tearing his hair out. We never provide him with crosses when he plays, although he’s partly to blame as after holding it up he’s often too slow in attacking the box and getting into position.

  • 107 cyprus // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:08 PM

    Low cross, much more suited to Gayle!

    Utterly dominant, let’s make it count. Yedlin and Ritchie having much joy down the right.

  • 119 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:10 PM

    We are making them look like league 2 fodder pretty much we did to Villa and then we tired out so we need the 2nd goal to kill them off !

  • 120 curmon // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:11 PM

    noah

    one out of how many chances should have had three

  • 121 manxpie // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:11 PM

    we need to crowdfund whoever’s streaming this FB stream

  • 124 JP...from The Rock // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:15 PM

    Yes now another and we can relax a bit. Only when we have at least a 2 goal cusion should we relax.

  • 125 Bambams // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:16 PM

    Its so annoying why the club doesn’t offer a stream for these games no tv is picking them up there is not even a highlights programme later on!

  • 132 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:24 PM

    Shlevey injury would be terrible.

    As somebody else mentioned a few weeks back, he’s the only one we don’t really have an alternative for, no other playmaker in our ranks.

  • 148 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:32 PM

    Still very unimpressed with Diame, hardly involved which seem to be becoming a theme,

    Even Harps made a similar comment to mine pre-match, saying how the Diame that he played with at Hull hasn’t shown up here yet.

  • 149 chicousa // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:32 PM

    Again, problem seeing out end of half / or end of game! Team needs to keep their foot on the pedal!

  • 150 Griff-toon // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:32 PM

    We need some cool heads now, have been all over them. A lot of time left to win this!

  • 151 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:34 PM

    How long does it take for our physio to react?

  • 152 Our Toon // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:34 PM

    Shock, we keep missing chances and that gives the opposition confidence, happy Gayle scored but he can’t keep missing chances in big games for us. The one at the weekend was poor and he’s missed a couple today. Not good enough

  • 153 Bambams // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:36 PM

    Gouffran climbs all over the back of him, there were defenders in front as well. No need to do it.

    Dummet was on the complete opposite side of the box, don’t know why he was over there and not LB where the lad came from to get in the box.

    It’s hard to tell from the limited few seconds on ssn but Gouffran was tracking the lad into the box.

    Definitely a penalty imo

  • 154 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:36 PM

    Crowd full of angst now.

    Boos at half-time is daft.

    Probably for the officials, but how are the players to know?

  • 155 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:38 PM

    What I do like about Gayle is that he never gives up and is always looking for chances but he needs to do better with the chances we have had we should have been 3 nil up which is game over !

    We also seemed to lose concentration for the goal so its another goal where we have made a mistake rather than good play by the other team!

    Raging as we have made Norwich look average now they have something to play for

  • 156 Toon XI // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:39 PM

  • 158 sing in the corner // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:40 PM

    Yeah, looked like a pen to me. Frustrating again with lots of clear chances. Let’s see if we can react differently to the Villa game and change gear. It was only last week so we’ll see if we learned the lesson..

  • 159 MAUTITOON // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:42 PM

    expect this norwich player murphy to score at least one tonight.

  • 160 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:42 PM

    Would also like to see us bring on someone who can win the ball in the air up front Diame not really doing much again he is certainly playing like Sissoko would be thats for sure…..

  • 161 Jail for Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 8:46 PM

    Exactly the same as Reading, let’s hope the final result is the same!

  • 176 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:00 PM

    ARGH!

    This team is pishing me off.

    So inconsistent.

    They can’t handle the pressure I’m sorry to say As soon as the opposition get a foothold we have no response.

    Fragile confidence and not enough experienced heads, add that to Rafa persisting with certain players like Diame and it’s not looking promising.

    As ever they’re full of rhetoric and soundbites, but on the pitch doesn’t match up.

  • 177 Bambams // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:01 PM

  • 188 Munster Mag // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:05 PM

    Just not good enough. The season is old enough to know what type of team we are and its not looking good. An unknown manager with unknown players in Huddersfield trumping the biggest spenders with the ex champions league mgr. Come on Toon attack attack.

  • 189 colwell // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:05 PM

    Well things are not looking good for us, we can dominate for 30 minutes, then we just fall away, but the missed chances are totally unacceptable at this level.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WE WON WTF

  • 293 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    We’ve been asking when we would come back from a sizeable deficit to win. Now we have.

  • 294 sing in the corner // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:43 PM

  • 301 Our Toon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Oh you beauty, Gayle had 3, well done lads. What a win that is…..massive for us. Good knock down by mitro and Gayle gets a deserved hattrick

    Please please please start mitro and Gayle next game

  • 302 Ron Knee // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Brilliant!

  • 303 Belfast // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Massive

  • 304 chicousa // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Amazing!!!! The Rafalution continues!!!

  • 305 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Gayle get his first hat trick, let’s hope it’s the first of many.

  • 306 MadisonToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    What a fightback – would have been done and dusted under Pardew, Carver or McClaren long before this…instead Gayle grabs a hattrick, Ritchie and Shelvey are instrumental and Gouffran redeems his penalty giveaway. Wow.

  • 307 Jail for Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    I am buzzing here!!!
    Why am I not there 🙁

  • 308 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    That will bring some much needed confidence into the side

  • 309 benjohnsen // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    This is beyond CRAZY!!!! No words. From HELL to HEAVEN in two minutes.

  • 310 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    Always say it suits us at home when the match is stretched and we’re going for it, taking risks, even at 0-0.

    The fans get on board and will always back them if they see that, that’s when special things happen. KK tapped into that every home match.

    It’s in our DNA, please learn from it Rafa. Stop approaching every match like a tentative chess match.

    Remarkable win.

    Shelvey easily MOTM despite Gayle’s hat-trick.

  • 311 Tsunki // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    I really must go see about that heart checkup. Long overdue.

  • 312 colwell // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    Please please please please Rafa start Mitro and Gayle together next game

  • 313 Legolas // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    Sing in the corner. You have hit the nail on the head. Ha ha. I am buzzing.

  • 314 Rafa Revolution // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    How on earth did we win that???

    I am gobsmacked!!!

  • 315 GeordieTwo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    Shame on the doubters! Shame!!! It was obvious we were going to win from the start!!!

  • 316 Toon Tang // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    HATRICK

  • 317 toon kk // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    I can’t believe it, brilliant come back.

  • 318 clinath@ed // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    I’m too old for this shite……..well done lads

  • 319 Toonacious T // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    What a night of football. Absolutely buzzing. This will give us massive momentum. HWTL.

  • 320 PK-Norway // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    Pls Rafa , play this side from now on!

  • 321 benjohnsen // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    SkySports: FULL-TIME! Well wasn’t that dramatic! Rafa Benitez looks absolutely elated. Newcastle were behind after 94 odd minutes, but somehow managed to find a way back to win an absolute thriller at St James’ Park. What a game! Highlights to follow soon…

  • 322 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    Leicester all over again when shearer scored a hatrick to win 4-3 now it’s Norwich with Gayle getting a hatrick wooooohhhhoooooo

  • 323 Mitrogoal // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    RIP dear underpants!

    HOWAY!!

  • 324 Toon Tang // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    We went to 300/1 at one point when 3-1 down. WHY OH WHY DIDNT I STICK EVEN A QUID ON IT AHHHHHHHHH

  • 325 Munster Mag // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    4-3 mental stuff!! HTL

  • 326 one fine day // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Just got up half an hour ago 6am)
    Logged in at 1.3.
    Best start to a birthday ever
    So happy for gouff a total class act ?
    Used to hate 4.3 as it always involved Liverpool but this … Wow
    Hwtl Hwtf

  • 327 Yo-yo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Takes real guts and determination to turn 1-3 into 4-3. Never say die !

  • 328 Hail Wor Ashley // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Oh and stop playing Diame!

    Mitro and Gayle have to be given a chance together now.

  • 329 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    That’s gotta be a first for us like. Snatching a victory from the jaws of defeat, it usually the other way around for us

  • 330 Robby Bobson // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    Look at the fixtures coming up vs the ones we’ve played…

    Could (probably should) push on from this.

  • 331 toon kk // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    That game will go down in history and never forgotten. Brilliant.

  • 332 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    We came from behind to win a game lads, what a game.

  • 333 Our Toon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:49 PM

    I hope this gives rafa an indication of what’s needed. Attack teams like Houghton did last time and we will go up easily.

  • 334 Munster Mag // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:49 PM

    Is there a highlights programme on TV ?

  • 335 sing in the corner // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Just shows anything is possible in football. Always stick with your team.. Great result, huge huge shot of confidence for the lads, they must feel on top of the world. Great spirit!
    That’s 20 goals in the last 3 games between these two! 🙂

  • 336 Legolas // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Happy birthday one fine day. Bet your buzzing. Lol.

  • 337 chicousa // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Need a change of underwear!!! Freaking miraculous comeback!!!

  • 338 Average_Contents // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Get the fcuk in!!!!!!!!

    Wtf just happened lol.

    Nearly woke the street up when goofy equalised. Nearly woke Liverpool up when gayle got the winner.

    Fcuking c’mon

  • 339 magscar // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Couldn’t get there tonight and they go and score 4 again ( missed Reading as well)!!
    Might be a message there but I will hopefuly be at next Home game :[)

  • 340 Cool Hand Luke // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Munster, Sky Sports News usually have highlights on their site about 15 mins after the final whistle.

  • 341 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Fair play to the lads. They never panicked and it paid off. That will give everyone a huge lift

  • 342 Toon Tang // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    I’m gonna sink this Perlenbacher pilsner with aplomb.

  • 343 GeordieTwo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    Years of Ashley seem to have made many ready to jump off the Newcastle express at the drop of a hat. Possibly that will start to change now?

  • 344 one fine day // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    That last in a nutshell is why you just love this club
    Massive result
    Will give them so much believe to keeping at it if they fall behind at home

  • 345 Griff-toon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    Wtf just happened!! I had to go away from the radio for 15 min because my 1 Year old son couldnt sleep.

  • 346 JP...from The Rock // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    Still in shock! What a crazy match that was. Unbelievable result in the end. What a shame I couldn’t be at St James’ to witness that.

    Well done lads!

  • 347 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    Average

    Same here mate. When Gayle scored I woke the bairns up. ‘Missus is going mad haha

  • 348 Belfast // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 PM

    Absolutely massive win like.

  • 349 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 PM

    I can’t remember the last time we came from 1-3 down to win. May have been Shearer.
    That was the kind of result that has a major impact on winners and losers.
    We needed to show we could do that. It has been missing from the expectations of players, managers and fans.

    Just a thought…..when was the last time we conceded three?

  • 350 SPRINGY // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 PM

    unbelievable!!!!!!

  • 351 firebug666 // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 PM

    Taking off Diame allowed us to attack with more purpose in my opinion, he was pants again today.

  • 352 welshgeordie9 // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:53 PM

    theres never a dull moment in the north east, that’s why i support this team.

    Unbelievable turnaround, what a result.

  • 353 GeordieTwo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:54 PM

    Seven in nine for Gayle now. I would say that’s not bad for a player many call dross? He missed one match with a head injury.

  • 354 manxpie // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:54 PM

    oooh hasselbaink is 1 of them up for corruption maybe he had a big bet on our game!

  • 355 ShirebrookToon // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:56 PM

    Atsu needs to start next game

  • 356 lesh // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:56 PM

    In Turkey and checking the Bbc for updates…. 1-3. Head down walked back to pensian which as it happens is called Letoon, checked the bbc expecting the worst and ffs….. Brilliant!

    Looking forward to hearing from those that were there tonight – it must’ve been quite an finale.

  • 357 BandB // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:56 PM

    G2

    You really don’t get this do you?
    He was only DROSS at half time!!!!
    He’s a Toon legend now, and possibly the best player ever.

  • 358 Yo-yo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:56 PM

    That result might just be the difference between promotion and disappointment in 36 games time.

  • 359 SPRINGY // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    great result,patchy performance….but winning in the last minute may give them players a right good kick up arse when it comes to confidence.

  • 360 GeordieTwo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    We’ve got to stop eating our own mates. The middle of a match isn’t the time to decide you hate the club and how it’s run. Fess up those who do it fairly often on here.

  • 361 nut meg // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    It’s 4am over here,how the hell am supposed to get back to sleep after that?? Well worth the baggy eyes though!

  • 362 Yo-yo // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:58 PM

    Could have had his hat trick by half time too

  • 363 Lilongwe Geordie // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:58 PM

    Great result! Even better feeling given how late it was when we turned it around. From listening to the radio, it didn’t sound like we deserved to lose, I wish we wouldn’t leave it so late, or make it so difficult for the fans.

    A tactical question, in amongst the euphoria, did we go 442 when Mitro replaced Diame, or did Gayle drop into the hole?

  • 364 one fine day // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:58 PM

    Legolas
    Thanks mate and yes totaly
    And I can’t wait bump into a couple of the villa fans I work with .
    Smug grin all day for me
    Get in

  • 365 Bambams // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    Unbelievable! !!!!

    Took the dogs out at 2-3 when I ‘thought’ I had seen the final score in the top corner of the tv !

    Mate text me ‘What a match 4-3’ …..I thought he was taking what the dogs were doing !!

    Massive game and huge 3 points !

  • 366 SUTTY1978 // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    Imagine being a Norwich fan tonight, you’d be bloody fuming!

  • 367 Mitrogoal // Sep 28, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    Diame should be nowhere near a starting position next game!

  • 368 clinath@ed // Sep 28, 2016 at 10:01 PM

    Didn’t we beat villa 4-3 scoring 3 in the last 10 mins or son…late 90s

  • 369 one fine day // Sep 28, 2016 at 10:05 PM

    Clinath
    Thought that was villa ?

  • 370 Novocastrian66 // Sep 28, 2016 at 10:13 PM

    Highlights. We should have 5 in the first half. http://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/2/851452268?-21483:5807:0
