Unbelievable Newcastle Come From 3-1 Down – Win 4-3


Well we just don’t believe this – after Newcastle were 3-1 down to Norwich City after 69 minutes we came back with three goals in the last 20 minutes to win this game and there were two goals late in stoppage time and we somehow won this game 4-3.

It would have been a stunner to lose to Norwich, because we would have gone 7 points behind them, but maybe the Gods are on our side after all.

Gayle got his second goal of the game after 71 minutes and then Gouffran scored 5 minutes into injury time.

And yes – you guessed it – Dwight Gayle got his hat trick one minute later and gave Newcastle all 3 points – which is exactly what we needed.

Who said he should have been dropped then?

Well me actually.

🙂

But Dwight now has 7 goals for Newcastle this season.

Only Newcastle can mount a magnificent late comeback like this and the Newcastle fans will be going crazy tonight back home.

Did I say it was unbelievable?

We’ll have a report out later – once we re cover – but we are now 3rd top one point behind Norwich and 3 points behind Huddersfield.

Note to Rafa – this is not exactly good for the old heart.

    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.

    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?

    Those were two very good goals. Not a hint of scramble about either, even if there was a bit of justifiable overloading going on.

    absolutely elated – was on a work thing which was in a place with no 3g – norwich mate was updating me … fair play to him he expected us to score again at 1-3 and texted me every goal pretty much as it happened
    Can’t wait for highlights – players will be going into Saturdays game full of it … nothing better than turning a result round in injury time especially to score 2 goals … absolutely mint man

    Exactly.
    Imagine having a season ticket, surrounded by a few of them listening to that patter every game. Enough to drive you round the bend.

    Does anyone agree that As much as Rafa is brilliant he thinks too much about the tactics and opposition at this level.
    We are a much better side than anyone in this league just let them go out and destroy teams.
    After going 1-0 up we seem to sit back. We should be killing teams off.
    Good result in the though lads. Onwards and upwards.

    Excellent result, we were peppering their goalmouth all night. They only had 5 or 6 shots on goal and ended up with 3 of them going in. We had at least 20. On another day we could have won that one 10 nil. Crazy night, and I would have felt robbed if we had lost.

    Shirebrook,

    When you do something you have failed miserably to do for many years, then it is at least a precedent you can build on, and a massive monkey off your back.

    Ed took a while to post this thread having had to bin the draft he had ready!

    He’ll not be complaining though, that’s for sure.

    Rafa does need to change his formation, going with 2 up top and more importantly ha ingredients bodies in the box is what caused the damage.

    Play them both ffs and attack teams and keep attacking, not score 1 and then hold on to it

    It might not have been good for the old heart Ed, but you learn by experience, and none of our players have experienced that as a group.

    My guess is that stocks in Colbacks have taken a setback, despite his lack of match fitness.

    I too am waiting for an opinion on whether Gayle did drop just off Mitrovic.

    Rafa wont go 442. he says he alters to this and 433 but its too much 4231 as many of us predicted. Brlliant win but as I said yesterday , we need to get after team more and stop being so cautious and obsessed with defensive shape. I rate Gayle and have money on him to be top scorer in league 🙂 Not as much as Jail though, sod him! 🙂
