Who Was Newcastle’s Man Of The Match At Leeds?


Rafa Benitez is certainly showing he’s a world class manager – although we already knew that – but as the season goes on the Newcatsle team seems to be getting better and they have a winning mentality now, which we’ve never had for a long time.

Newcastle won 2-0 today and at the end it was a fairly easy win although The Whites put Newcastle under some pressure late in the first half.

It was two goals from – you guessed it – Dwight Gayle after 23 minutes and 54 minutes that wrapped up the points for us today – what a buy this lad has been for just £10M from Crystal Palace.

Thanks to former manager Alan Pardew who never seemed to rate him.

That’s 9 wins in a row for Rafa and Newcastle in all competitions and that equals the record set by the great Kevin Keegan.

Next Saturday at home to Blackburn Rovers there’s a chance to stretch that winning run in all competitors to 10 games – for the first time ever at Newcastle.

Rafa is already making history- and what a fantastic manager he is!

    Manxpie, sitc, – give it a rest I said nothing negative about coalsa… sorry colback I just said he’s doing well in a Division suited to his talents. As for anyone else, jury is out. I know you love colback and dummett but I’ve every confidence they will at best serve as understudies when we are back in the prem as I can’t see Rafa basing a top six push on their ‘talents’

    Colback ahead of Darlow is interesting. Colback certainly wasn’t poor, but Darlow was fantastic to keep us in the game.

    And simply calling colback yellow card thing a “chestnut” doesn’t stop it from bring his thing lol. If you can’t be bothered to watch him, check his stats.

    Jib – apparently Rafa has retired. Curbishley seen with Charnley at SJP. Solid replacement. Champions League footy in our near future.

    That was what you call a professional performance by the whole team. They did what was required not a classic but we controlled the game. Can I also say Colback was immense, never put a foot wrong and took a yellow card for the team.
    Rafa is the man.

    there were several potential MOM for me. I think it was a choice between Gayle (obviously) Colback, Darlow and Ritchie (nobody mentioning him) but I went for Lascelles (again nobody mentioning him) but he was the man in control at the back and the calming influence when they were piling on the pressure.

    You really need to have a look at him Mr Southgate!!

    Lascelles for me. Breaking up play in midfield, and managing to throw himself in front of just about everything on one of Leed’s many runs at us.

    Colback and Ritchie very close seconds, mind.

    aye ww he at least seemed to tread water in the prem he needs to use this as a great oppertunity to build the rest of his game up but seems to dawdle about with his head in the air
    rafa needs to let him know he isn’t up to scratch imo and drop him until he improves like everybody else has

    Dwight Goal gets MOM for me. Goals are priceless and his two were sniffers. Like truffle hunters, pound for pound worth their weight in gold.

    This season Wor Jack has, after today, the same amount of yellow cards as Shelvey and Dummett. One less than Ritchie. One more than Gayle and Lascelles.
    No reds, that’s one less than Anita.

    Lascelles is a class act. How McClaren didn’t use him last season is a summary of his management ability. Blinkered.
