Sunday, February 3rd, 2013 · 51 Comments

There cannot be too many new signings at Newcastle who have the immediate impact that 23 year-old Moussa Sissoko has had on Tyneside, since signing for Newcastle from Toulouse for around £2M nine days ago – although the initial plan was to get him for nothing in the summer.

Much like returning striker Andy Carroll last year with Liverpool, when we hammered Liverpool 2-0,  Demba Ba came with his new Chelsea team yesterday, and they were defeated 3-2, and poor Demba Ba had to go off with what looked like a  badly broken nose – even after he tried to carry on.

It’s a really bright sunny day in Raleigh, North Carolina – and to think its’ not even 4:00 am in the morning and the sun isn’t even up yet – but that is what happens when Newcastle give an awesome display like they did yesterday that was full of skill, commitment, goals and guts as our lads beat the European Champions Chelsea, and had to come back from a goal down in the second half to win an amazing and entertaining game 3-2 – and it was our first back to back league wins in almost a year.

The Incredible Atmosphere Won Us The Game – Gouffran

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013 · 252 Comments

There were a lot of Newcastle heroes in the 3-2 win today against Chelsea, and one of them was our new striker/winger Yoan Gouffran,  whose pacy surge through the middle set up the second goal, as his well hit shot was well saved by goalkeeper Cech, but a certain Mr. Moussa Sissoko swept the rebound into the back of the net after 69 minutes to draw Newcastle level – and Sissoko’s second goal on 90 minutes, brilliantly set up by Davide Santon,  sealed an incredible win for the Magpies.
