It was an outstanding overall performance from a good-looking Newcastle United side this afternoon on the south coast, and the only real disappointment was that we couldn’t get all 3 points.
But it was still a decent point at Southampton, and we need to pick up as many points as we can.
Hopefully, in our next game at home to Crystal Palace next Saturday we can pick up all 3 points, but that will be a tough game too.
Rafa Benitez on the touchline this afternoon
Rafa was not happy with the two goals we conceded, but otherwise he seemed pleased with many things, and as usual, our players worked their socks off for the cause.
No criticism in that department from this well organized and hard working Rafa Benitez side.
