Alan Shearer Reacts On Twitter To First Win In 10 Games – Yessssssss!


When we saw the team with Saivet and Diame in the side we thought there was no way Newcastle could win this game or even get a draw.

Wrong again and a gutsy performance from our lads – who fought for the shirt and got us a famous win and all 3 points.

We have now done the double over the Hammers.

And our first two goals were scored by – who else – Saivet and Diame.

Alan Shearer – like every other fan was relieved and delighted and credit for Rafa for somehow getting the win with such a weakened side.

I was wrong and so delighted about it!

We have hope now.

YES.

    This can kick start so much more positivity for our club.

    The takeover, attracting better players and the general feel good factor again.

    Probably the biggest three points this season.

    Bambams,
    Biggest three points without a doubt, the difference this will make to the atmosphere on Wednesday is huge.

    Apart from ththat goal I thought Saivet was mediocre. Hats off to him for the superb equaliser but I’d take shelvey merino or Hayden over him

    I said earlier if we win this could be our turning point in the season.

    We’ve ended our beaten run!

    Let’s end City’s unbeaten run!

    Can actually look forward to MOTD

    can’t agree. saviet was great first half, but understandably second half caught up with him as he’s hardly played. think we may just have unwittingly found someone

    I’m pretty sure the stats would suggest otherwise toonbotherer.

    He wasn’t pretty on the ball but had to do his and Diame’s job in midfield. He was very decent as an anchor for our team, he made a lot of clearances and interceptions. Tackling could be improved though. The bonus being a great free-kick.

    Totally agree mate

    I said earlier today had we not won their heads would really drop.

    The trip back on the club coach/flight will be fantastic. It builds further good feeling.

    Christmas with their families….

    They will also again have more belief in Rafa.

    Huge win this boys

    Saivet over Diame any day for me. It’s not saying much though ‘cos every time Diame has the ball I sh*t myself. It’s great for the pre-Christmas weight loss. I’m just not looking forward to Diame losing the ball and de Bruyn picking it up….it’s gonna be mayhem.

    Absolutely appalling, shameful and embarrassing for all supporters of NUFC to have so called “fans” WILLING us to lose to prove their point that they know the first thing about this club and the sport of football – well guess what? They don’t.

    Dishonourable mentions for the pathetic display by:-

    Huge three points. Matters not how pretty it did or do not look. A win is a win. We’ve come up on the wrong side of the score sheet in multiple fixtures in which we’ve “looked good”. I’ll take a hard fought three points over an aesthetic moral victory with nothing to show for it.

    wouldn’t mind so much if they occasionally changed the record and were just a tad constructive.
    it’s the endless self righteous, they know best attitude that does my head in and as you say hoping we’d lose just to make a point really stinks .

    Very impressed with the lads today.
    Black and white through and through.
    A result that has been on the horizon.
    Rafa using the squad to great effect.
    Leap frogged todays opponents, hopefully permanantly.
    Deserved the win and saw it through to the end.

    The worst part is they were all so convinced before a ball was locked they would get their wish we would lose. Truly awful form. The worst.

    They basically try to bully the match day blog into thinking like them and telling everyone they are idiots. Schadenfreude.

    As ever rarely talking about football.

    Same with JfA whose in an eternal points scoring match on here with many posters and it seems to be his priority given how much he takes swipes at people compared to football related content – and he has the cheeks to accuse others of spewing bile – that’s all you do! Me thinks a case of projection as with your “disgraceful people” comment on the last thread. How on Earth would you know if I’m a disgraceful person or is your threshold for a disgraceful person somebody that critically looks at your demi-God.

    My alias on here is ironic, your hailing of Rafa is blindingly serious.

    You’re a monumental nugget for all manner of reasons, JfA.

    Got to laugh at those claiming Rafa engineered that win with a midfield he would never have picked if all other options weren’t off the table for one reason or another. A game that was barmy even by NUFC standards. That chaos was all part of the plan obviously! The sequence of abject losses though, nothing to do with Rafa! Want it both ways.

    Not sure why my posts aren’t being submitted but Atsu is my man of the match. Lascelles neutralised Carol which was inspiring stuff from our captain. Although Gayle should have scored, his runs into space were superb. Joselu did his job, Savait I thought did surprisingly decently. Poor passes and understandably rusty, but did more than I’ve seen from Perez all season. Yedlin worked his socks off as usual and threatened at times. Nice to see him returning to some decent form. Great pass from Clark to set Atsu off which led to Diame’s goal. All in all and aside from the final 10 minutes, I don’t think it was an ugly game at all. We attacked well with purpose and it was entertaining to see.

    Not sure what Atsu said to Elliott but I suspect that he told him to stand his ground and wait much like Tim Krul did for his country in the world Cup. Whatever it was, his fellow countryman was psyched out.

    I wasn’t at the match but Chris Kamara on in the stadium said Toon were really going for it today and played some lovely football as well.
    Now then; can we end Man City’s run on Wednesday? I’ve got a feeling we’ll get something from that game if the lads are up for it because they won’t win every game.
    It’s amazing what a win does for you!
    Relief!
