Local Lad Finally Getting The Respect He Deserves

Paul Dummett has been playing very well for Newcastle at left back and he’s a much better player this season than last, as Rafa is making the local lad into a top left-back.

And Rafa has talked before of Paul’s qualities as a defender and his form since he came back from injury shows what we were missing in the first half of the season.

Paul had another excellent game yesterday as we somehow kept Crystal Palace at bay late in the second half after we had missed some good chances in the first half.

But we took a point from the game.

Paul Dummett – another excellent game yesterday from the local lad

And during the game.

    Darlow impressive between the sticks. Reacting well to his og and the arrival of the new goalie.

    Good point in the end. Wasn’t pretty but they’re a good side on their day and have a lot of quality. Hoping the 3 teams in the relegation zone stay there and we can grind out results till the end of the season.

    Well Done Mr Dummett. You played fantastic ! In fact most of the lads dug deep and got stuck in . However, I cannot for the life of me see exactly why the linesman was so animated at the so called tug of the shirt that awarded the penalty, ( Must have had a side bet ? ) We should have buried them in the first half. Well done lads ! Keep it up but maybe a bit more practice in front of goal all round !
    One final thought. Townsend , Has he been to the same clinical as Looney Rooney for his hair transplant. I can’t help thinking how much he looked like Oddbod from the carry on films ! Spitting double !!

    Henry Winter and other Ashley critics can say it a million times but Ashley’s oblivious to it all. He cares only about his own self-interest and certainly not one iota about Newcastle United.

    The flag-happy linesman’s fist pump (when he convinced the ref to award the penalty) really ought to be questioned. In my opinion, it showed he was either pleased that he’d won a pen against us or that he was trying to show that he’s a potential ref.

    Thanks for the mention and I totally agree something should be done. I don’t think that I have ever seen a linesman so animated and happy. Try to bring it to Gary Neville’s attention he might moan on for weeks about it lol.
