August 23rd, 2015 · 26 Comments

One of the most pleasing things about the clean sheet yesterday was that Newcastle were so organized in defense,  and in general way the players defended yesterday, and you could see how hard they had worked during the week in working on defense – cutting out crosses and blocking shots and good positional play.
