Mulgrew’s Goal That Beat Newcastle – Again – Video


Here is Mulgrew’s winning goal that beat Newcastle this afternoon and perhaps Karl Darlow could have done a little better.

It was a Mulgrew goal a minute later in ltet November that beat Newcatsle 1-0 in that game =- two defeats to a team that was 3rd bottom of the league before each game – not good.

    Crazy game but some of the comments I’ve just read are ludicrously over the top. You’d think we couldn’t string a pass together reading it. We dominated and got the shots in and were in threatening areas on a number of times. They have got very lucky with a free kick. This happens in football if you’ve been involved in it.

    If we keep getting into threatening areas we will win a lot of games, and we have, that’s why we are in a top 2 position.

    Some changes could have been made a bit earlier, but that shouldn’t detract from our dominance. I would play Diame in Colback’s place while Shelvey’s not there. I don’t like two def midfielders together as it limits capability going forward.

    ‘..Newcastle are now two points behind Brighton who have a game in hand on us.’

    Ed, We have nothing to worry about with Brighton as they cannot deny us promotion. It’s the teams below us who could replace us in the automatic spot.

    Not big on picking on Colback, like his attitude and his graft….but, today he was all over the place. His decision making was awful, and his instinct to look to go backwards when under any kind of pressure is very frustrating. Desperately need another creating MF to play next to a defending MF…..two together isn’t working.

    Maybe Rafa’s lost sight of the fatigue factor? The core of the team have played a lot of games and maybe they’re tired?

    Should he be acknowledging that and making like-for-like changes earlier rather than in the dying minutes of games?

    Just a thought.

    In comparison Reading were 2 down away from home and came back to win with three second half goals of which two were in the last ten minutes .

    Says something about attitude , application and determination.

    Early in the game Ritchie was furious with Gayle for not passing when Ritchie was clear on goal ( Gayle took a shot ) and that rather suggests our team spirit is now somewhat more fragmented

    We just seem to be so methodical and mechanical – some pace and flair to break open defences would be useful

    Lesh, he does make those rotations now and again to the core, bar a few, but as I was saying before, by biggest worry was Shelvey being out. 1. Because he is so dominant , and 2. Because we literally have no other orchestrator like him at the club. De Jong was the other creative midfielder, but he’s at PSV.

    It actually shows the rotation policy as working because the main player who can’t be rotated as we don’t have a similar player is now not there and there is far too much reliance on him – a down side of playing same players week in week out.

    Completely agree. Ridiculous comments from so many.

    I thought Rafa left it too late to change the game. Atsu and Murphy should have come on much earlier to use their respective pace and aerial ability.

    I don’t criticise Colback and Hayden as they don’t have the skills and abilities of Shelvey. We don’t have a like for like replacement for Shelvey at the club. I’ve noticed that those fans who don’t want Colback and Hayden never suggest who would replace them from the squad.

    Post 4.Yeah Colback not the answer & Arsenal don’t let good players go unless they get megabucks for them. But this 28 man squad has big gaping holes especially with three off to Africa and looking like Mitro is off to Swansea.WE certainly need a class playmaker even when we get Jonjo back. Not going to get on Rafa’s back just yet but when he get’s behind he just doesn’t seem to want to change things. It’s been crying out for Gayle & Mitro starting up top with Diame in the hole for weeks now especially with all the possession we have had.

    This is what I told, Rafa set up players, who are just hardworkers, but lack quality in the final third, apart from Gayle, who is isolated alone there. We have some nice options there, not only Mitro, but we have better players sitting on the bench, than these actually playing…
    Yedlin over Anita
    Lazaar over Dummett
    Mbemba over both our current CB
    Anita in CM over both Hayden and Colback
    Atsu over Gouffran
    Mitrovic is a threat, we saw it when he played this season vs Preston twice, QPR or vs Norwich, that he can change a game and also help his teammates to look actually better than they are, because he can hold up ball and bring others to game…
    Rafa is using players as safety first and this is not modern way of playing football, why we have these players on the bench then?

    Cant really say the team was wrong as we dominated but have to query the strength of mind…. Blackburn had a spell of ten mins in second half where they scored because we lost the plot,shape, ideas whatever you wanna call it….did worry at half time that we would get caught and we did….we just dont seem to able to have the resolve that brighton does to get something from a match….disappointing day.

    Some Players Are Over Rated And Under Rated
    Some Managers Are Over Rated And Under Rated
    Possibly Rafa Is Over Rated???
    For an experienced manager to be so stubborn in his tactics just to prove a point is unforgivable.
    We would be 2 goals up at half time today if we played gayle and mitrovic just my opnion, we dont need work horses against work horses so atsu shud of played also everyone can see this except the manager? unless he really did this on purpose to get more money for signings? i prefer the points now tbh…. poor poor rafa.
    hughton was a joy for us we cantered to the title and beat Sunderland 5-1 and for ppl who said he cnt attract top players? if im not mistaken ben arfa rushed to play for him, he is a lovely man to and loved newcastle also he might not be champions league elite but neither are newcastle the top 6 is blocked for years to come bar another leicester miracle i think its fair to say we might have morr fun with hughton in charge
    anyways we got rafa now lets hope he proves us all wrong at the minute because we are all angry at him he also cost me over 600 quid when losing to sheff wed.

    We are where we are because we generally dominate the opposition and win games, with a few losses.

    They are where they are because they do not generally dominate the opposition and only get a few wins.

    Keep doing that and the long term average is still very good in our favour.

    Lesh = Brian Clough stuck with a 15/16 man squad throughout the season when he won both European Cups & they played about 75 games in a season.If they are getting tired then there is something wrong with the training. Accept we have have of cover in defence (although not convinced they are all good enough but no cover for midfield playmaker & if he refuses to plat Mitro (very light up top).There fore needs, Cleverly/Delph on Loan. Tom Ince as a different attacking option just playing off the main striker & possibly Peter Crouch. We could do that without breaking the Bank. What do you think Slank?
