Alan Shearer Reacts To Newcastle’s 9th Win In A Row

In what was meant to be a really stern test for Newcastle today we came out with a good 2-0 win at Elland Road and the lads showed they can produce when everything is on the line.

And it was that man Dwight Gayle who scored both Newcastle’s goals to take his tally this season to 13 goals – even if he did have no teeth.

It was another goo professional display from a Newcastle side brimming with confidence in a game shown live around the world.

Alan Shearer thought it was good too and gives special praise to Dwight Gayle and it takes us 5 points ahead of Brighton and 9 points ahead of 3rd placed Reading.

A really important win for our boys this afternoon.

    tsunki would you have prefered colback to let the game go on and let them get in?
    strange how dummett and colback get instant abuse from the slightest thing but others get a free ride after not playing well at all
    plus dummett and colback have found their level but gayle,lacelles,shelvey clark… etc havent lol

    Ah the old Colback yellow card chestnut. 🙂
    I thought today’s was a ‘took one for the team’ to stop them breaking out on a dangerous counter…

    I called it 2-nil!

    Not the best performance, but got the job done.

    Well done to Gayle for anticipating that Green, the calamity that he is, would drop his obligatory b@llock.

    Love it!

    Roll on the 26th 🙂

    Clint, I think it’s fair to say that the rest are chasing second or playoffs now mate. For all the build up that really was a doddle. Our defence is looking really good and we just keep scoring. Still, they can put their nice shiny new scarves back in mothballs until next time they play a big club.

    Gayle was great today as was Shelvey and Colback

    Perez has still got his intimidating skills but not much else really need a number 10 in Jan I reckon

    this is my thinking from earlier on perez ww

    manxpie // Nov 20, 2016 at 2:20 PM

    perez in the prem seemed to have that bit of class where he could keep the ball and his little flicks would come off totally different in this league and he isn’t adapting to it well imo
    he should be building up the rest of his game for me

    I think Perez was good when he broke into the PL but after his first season just stopped developing

    I agree he’s struggling for us now more than ever…can’t say Rafa has improved him either tbh

    Nah, taff, I’m no WUM, just a cynic. I have been supporting NUFC since the mid ’60s and on the blog for 10 years. I’ve seen too many over-hyped, trophy free false dawns, I’m afraid. Witnessed too many teams drop back into the Championship/Old 2nd Div following season after season of mid table mediocrity. After the last couple of pitiful seasons the club should be playing in sackcloth and ashes, not black and white. Automatic promotion should be an absolute minimum requirement given the resources and fan base we have.

    WWSBRD – Gary Monk is a joke. Spot on – Claiming they should have had a “clear penalty” for a ” definite handball” shows a minor mentality . I thought he was better than that. Clearly not.
    Solid performance and not the battle the press had hoped for.
    Onwards and upwards.

    onward and upward, i wonder where all the pundits are who said it would be our sternest test?
    Monk is only trying to take the blame away from his keeper and poor defence by blaming the ref for missing the incident.
    He never mentioned the two or three of their team who should have had yellows for dodgy tackles ,one could have been a red after he ploughed into mitro when already on a yellow…..blinkered vision imho

    Still not sure about Perez….. he’s got all the tricky moves, but when it comes to basic skills, such as a regulation pass, not good. It was about halfway through the 1st half of the Leeds game, I started to get frustrated with a couple of incidents with the lad…. from then on I noticed he, more often than not, fluffed a relatively simple pass/hold decision and that put us on the defensive. Also, still a bit lightweight in the tackling or 50/50 ball situation.
