Former Newcastle Player – Totally Deserved – Great Win

After the game last night former striker Mick Quin thought that Newcastle thoroughly deserved their come from behind win at the Amex Stadium.

After going behind 1-0 after 14 minutes Newcastle came back strongly in the second half and pressed Brighton all the way and we managed to get two vital goals in the last nine minutes to get a famous win and the double over Brighton & Hove Albion.

    totally agree with you about Goufran. He chased everything up front constant thorn in there side was involved in most f our moves – yes he missed a one-on-one but hell he created the chance himself.
    Dime yes he looked lazy at times and lost the ball, but he put in a hell of a shift in central midfield closing down getting in tackles.

    With Diame and Goufran up centre it stopped the opposition running down our centre so had to go wide and also gave Shelvey and Ritchie a lot more space. Atsu now has had a couple of good games – keep it up lad – prefer you on the left though as who can get in the crosses without doubling back on yourself.
    Murphy changed the game when he came on scared them sh*tless kept on losing their marker – lesson for Mitro on centre forward play.

    Ps Ritchie best game in TOON shirt
    Dummett my MOM
    and Darlow had a good game

    For once in a long time the spine of the team was strong Goufran, Diame Colback Clark, Lascalles and Darlow.

    Mind you Lascalles has to stop dithering on the ball.

    Also last night a lot a lot less back passes to Darlow and there was movement to collect the ball off him instead of HOOOOOOfs all he time

    I can’t believe our away record. Almost all my life we’ve had an abysmal away record; alsolutely lamentable. This season is incredible.

    Dummett was my MOM. He not only stopped us going two nil down with a goal line clearance but kept Brighton’s best player Knockheart reasonably quiet.

    Others have said and I quite agree that Diame looked much more comfortable and effective playing deeper.

    Also, Murphy was very effective in the time he was on the pitch which makes me wonder whether he would be equally effective for the full 90 minutes. Its certainly worth a try against Huddersfield.

    On Dummett:
    The lad is an excellent defender. His positional sense is pretty good, decent in the air for a left back, he is fast and strong in the tackle. We really can not ask for more in a defensive LB at the moment. Fine there are the occasional blips like last weekend with Darlow (really not sure who was at fault as Darlow claims he gave Dummett a shout)

    One area Dummett needs to dramatically improve on is his ball retention. He resorts to those lofted balls so often and it is invariably just a turnover in possession!

    From the BBC:-

    “Mohamed Diame and Ayoze Perez scored in the last 10 minutes for Newcastle with Diame’s effort a contender for the ‘Bizarre Goal of the Season’ award.”

    No wonder Hoots thinks it was a penalty, theyve had 10 this season cos if someone sneezes next to murphy he goes down and claims, he should be in the referees handbook as a diver and be booked for it, Mitro tried the same thing vs Bristol a few times and got nothing even though he was battered all over the place ……inconsistencies are even more prevelant in this league and the sooner were out of it the better.
    What we need for me is an international pool of quality referees ,nobody can referee a maTch in their own country, this would stop the obvious bias towards bigger teams and stop the likes of Rooney getting away with basically shouting abuse at referees…….it will never happin but would eesolve what i think will be a migration of Premier league referees to China and Qatar .
    Anyway, enough whining from me, just looking forward to Saturday now, hoping Huddersfield get a few injuries and suspensions tonight and go through, that will give them something wlse to think about and may slow them down a tad……wev still got enough to go up but every little advantage helps…..hwtl

    Slank, I agree with you regarding Diame. On the other hand, our tactics did not really suit him in the first half. He was being utilized as a target man! When we can deeper, he was able to lope about the place, breaking up the play and setting up some decent counter attacks.
