Fans React To Big Win And Gallowate Flags Spectacular

Newcastle Fans have reacted on Twitter to what was a very important win for us against Aston Villa after Newcastle put in a terrible first half performance but found a way to win and keep a clean sheet too.

That’s Villa’s fifth straight defeat and they are looking like they are in some trouble now and 33 points behind Newcastle in the league table as we go back on top with 69 points

And the Gallowgate Flags group, to their great credit, put on a spectacular show with that new flag of Rafa – that alone will keep him at the club.

    This is the ‘table of death ‘as 13 Prem hopefuls inevitably run out of points to play for and ultimately fall out of the race and bury collective heads in hands. Currently all top half teams are capable (mathematically) of achieving a play off spot or even an automatic place.

    I have made the initial cut off point for a top 2 place 79 points, which was enough to ensure Stoke (2008) and Hull (2013) finished as runners up. If and when the current top two break this 79 point barrier then of course the cut off will immediately rise for all the chasing pack.

    Bruce sounded a broken man after the game there

    The Championship top-scorer made his return to the starting XI against Aston Villa tonight.

    He played against Norwich last week, but only off the bench.

    But the Newcastle star lasted just 33 minutes of his first start since January 14 before being taken off.

    Gayle appeared to suffer from a recurrance of the hamstring injury.

    And after the Toon went back top of the Championship with a 2-0 win at St James’ Park, Benitez delivered an update.

    He said: “It looks like we will miss him for a few games.

    “But we have done well without him and I am confident we can do so again.”

    Lascelles man of the match. Showed great leadership tonight. Best game in a while for Colback – good to see. Apart from Goofran’s goal, he wasn’t great- Atsu will slowly take his place. Ritchie was a close second for MOM. Great redemption from Darrow too with that stop.

    @gaz: Can you blame him? His team dominated the first half and then crumbled spectacularly. Clever game by Rafa today, though I can’t help but feel he needs to throw caution to the wind at times.

    I think Mitro really has his chance now. Suspension, injury, and Gayle’s form have hindered his progress thus far, but I think we are a better overall 11 when he plays, and he the better epl proposition. I like Gayle of course, and do think we should look at playing both, but I do prefer Mitrovic leading the line.

    That caution to the wind should be at home, we can dominate and attack but unfortunately rafa doesn’t see it that way

    I agree Rafa’s system is not always great to watch, but who is top of the league. He will never change his style but when we risk it and press high up we look devastating!
