Jubilant Newcastle Fans Take To Twitter To Celebrate Win

Jubilant Newcastle fans took to Twitter after a decent performance from Newcastle today although the game should have been won before Derby came back at us in those final 20 minutes and almost equalized.

That would have been hard to take if the opposition had done that for the second successive home game after we conceded last against QPR in the 90th minute.

But we won this game, kept a clean sheet and are back on top with 62 points from 29 league games.

Mo Diame – had a great first half today

    Just got in

    Much much better for 65 – 70 minutes – quicker tempo moved the ball should of been further ahead before we started to get nervous and pain.

    Lucky to collect the three points in the end – great header off the line by Yedlin and they missed to open goals. But all in all much better and the crowd were u for it today.

    Diame and Hanley made a big difference today

    Diame first half was excellent linking up the play in a more forward role – lost his impetus when dropped back like a third centre half.

    Mitrovich – waste of space and Hayden was not much better – looks like he is carrying a injury.

    Dummett my man of the match great tackle commanded the air and was good coming forward.

    Others that stood out Yedlin and Hanley

    Merit marks
    Darlow 7 did what he had to do until nerves crept i dropped a cross ad his kicking was poor.

    Yedlin 8 one of his best games in a TOON shirt but needs to get his crosses in
    Clark 7 Steady game bur again his distribution at the end was poor
    Hanley 8 Best game in a TOON shirt marshalled the back four and played a lot closer to Clark so no big hole through the middle for Derby to drive.
    Dummett 9 superb game for the TOON defended like a Trojan and got forward to link up – put a couple of good crosses in

    Ritchie 7 got lucky with deflection for goal but had a better game – still has to stop given needless free kicks away
    Shelvey 7 Quite today but still got involved and distribution was OK – linked up with Diame
    Diame 8 Excellent first half ran the show drove forward well and disrupted play – linked up with Shelvey – but drifted out of theme when Derby were on the front foot
    Goufran 6 put in a lot of work tackled and did the dirty stuff but not as effective as he was earlier in the season
    Hayden 4 poor today looked a yard ad half off the pace – got caught in possession to many times – looked like he was carrying injury and no surprise he came off at half time.
    Mitrovich 4 Poor seems he does not want to head the ball looking for the defender to knock out the way and chest the ball down – had new boots on – looked like they were falloff lead.

    Sammi 2 not on long enough – don’t know if he touched the ball
    Lacsclles – not on long enough
    Perez 5 same again plenty of running but gets knocked off the ball to easy – yet nearly scored at the end – goalie was lucky should of had a free kick at least.

    RAFA 7 choice of team yes I agreed with his changes in starting eleven
    maybe got to rest Hayden. Me would of brought Murphy on for Mitro after a hour.

    Crowd 8 -10 sang most of the game but became anxious last twenty minutes when we started to get nervous

    All – All – good result – yet should not of been hanging on at the end

    Ref 2 – piss poor like most in this league
