When We Scored The Fourth Goal The Pitch Was Shaking

One of the most incredible finishes in Newcastle’s long history happened this season at St. James Park on Wednesday 28th September.

That’s when Yoan Gouffran and Dwight Gale scored goals against Norwich City in the fifth and sixth minute of stoppage time to pull off an incredible 4-3 win.

Isaac Hayden has been interviewed in the Chronicle today and he has talked about what it’s like playing in front of full houses at the venerable St. James’ Park:

“People talked about St James’ Park before I joined. I’d never played here but heard how good it was.”

“I think we have had a couple of games where it hasn’t been the best performance.”

“But even still the fans were still right behind us for the majority of the game, they push us. Win, lose or draw they’ll still be there and supporting us.”

“The Norwich game in particular, I don’t think I have been involved in an atmosphere as special as that one.”

“When we scored the fourth goal the pitch was shaking.”

“It was just unbelievable.”

The pitch was shaking is a great comment from the 21 year-old.

Certainly Newcastle will be a top attraction for a lot of players in the summer.

But that’s dependent on Newcastle being promoted straight back to the Premier League, which is the major goal of this season.

We were drawn away at Birmingham City last night in the 3rd round of the FA Cup so that could be a tough game for us.

We play Birmingham on Saturday and after three successive defeats we simply must get back to our winning ways against the Blues.

Comments welcome.

    Yes, but at the Blackburn game the atmosphere was flat.
    Complacent on the part of the supporters.
    9 wins in a row or whatever we are playing a bottom side win is a gimmie.
    As I said at the weekend take how you felt last Fri night to this weeks game.
    Create siege mentality. Hostile, towards the Officials, that’s how it should be. The opposition, the lot.
    It’s a football match not the theatre. If you want a guaranteed happy ending go to the cinema.
