Quite honestly we don’t care how we win these days and it was a late header from Mikel Merino that was the only goal of the game this afternoon at home to Crystal Palace and that was enough for a very good 1-0 win.
The game was not good and Newcastle were nowhere near our best form – but it was a clean sheet and all 3 points and we jump up to 6th place in the table.
We’ll take it!
Alan Shearer probably expressed the feelings of Newcastle fans around the world with his two word response to the win – we think it’s 2 (long) words.
