Campbell Gets 45 Minutes – Newcastle Get 3-1 Win

Sol Campbell made a good start to his Newcastle United career tonight when the Newcastle reserves beat Sunderland Reserves 3-1 at the Stadium of Light.

Nile Ranger congratulates Lovenkrands after Peter scores penalty

Campbell played 45 minutes of tonight’s 3-1 win, but the game was spoiled by Spanish striker Xisco,  being handed a red card for kicking out at Jordan Cook, late in the first half.

At that time Newcastle were 2-0 up with goals from Nile Ranger and Peter Lovenkrands, with Peter again scoring from the penalty spot after Ranger was brought down by Sunderland goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

Campbell, who turns 36 on 18th September was signed as a free agent last month, and this was his first game in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle, and he was replaced at the half  by 20 year-old Ben Tozer.

Ryan Taylor made it 3-0 with another good free kick on 60 minutes, and even though Newcastle were down to only 10 men, Sunderland still found it difficult to get back into the game.

Cook did score a late consolation goal from the penalty spot, and Ryan Noble hit the post, but it was all too little too late for a well beaten Sunderland side.

A good win by Peter Beardsley’s Newcastle Reserves side tonight.


Sunderland: Trevor Carson, Marcos Angeleri, Blair Adams, Adam Reed, Michael Kay, George McCartney, Robbie Weir, Jack Colbeck, Ryan Noble, Jordan Cook, Andy Reid.
Subs: Liam Bagall, Ben Wilson, Nathan Luscombe, Dan Madden, Matthew Fletcher.

Newcastle United: Tim Krul, James Tavernier, Paul Dummett, Ryan Donaldson, Sol Campbell, Matthew Grieve, Ryan Taylor, Brad Inman, Nile Ranger, Xisco, Peter Lovenkrands.
Subs: Ben Tozer, Ole Soderberg, Jeff Henderson, Phil Airey, Greg McDermott.

Referee: Tony Harrington

    hey lads i was sent jeff winter an email and he replied! what u think?

    Name: nick

    Not a fan of yourself Mr.Winter 😉 but a good fair
    read…. would you sent off any of the challenges on Mr Barton?? Let
    me know.

    REPLY:- Well you are not a fan and you issue a directive that suggests I am
    duty bound to reply to you, obviously I must be obliged!! I only saw the
    highlights but it did appear that Barton was subjected to a series of
    challenges that were obviously trying to intimidate him. You have to give
    him a lot of credit for not reacting. Many players would have rolled around
    and made the situation worse. I have dealt with the incidents in the game in
    my responses to the questions posed by football.co.uk which will appear on
    my site shortly, where I look at the situation where players do the numbers
    game on a player and eventually someone should pay. I am suggesting that
    eventually a player should receive a red card for a foul challenge that in
    isolation would probably have only been a yellow but because of the apparent
    repeated fouling of a team deserves the ultimate sanction.

    I hope that you enjoy the articles and also find them to be a good read and
    fair. Who knows you might one day become a fan!!!!

    Best wishes

    anyone who says bee arfa should play against blackpool, apparently he is already ruled out of the match due to lack of match fitness, might make the bench though, tiote will be available though

    Would be happy to see Ben Arfa getting on the pitch for the last 20-25 minutes against Blackpool. Start the same team that has been starting the last 2 prem-games.

    Highly intelligent response!! Let down only by your abysmal spelling.
    Tell you what, how about I get my 6 year old daughter proof read your future posts? Please delete any profanities, as unlike your parents, I prefer to bring my children up in a correct manner.
    Or did you ever meet your father x

    I hink you are doing a great job Ed.
    But I would suggest that, when a visitor clicks the picture of a story, that the story is displayed and not the picture. It’s kind of annoing, at least to me.. Hope that you will consider making that change. Thanks!

    from that reserve team that beat the makems – are there any that you think will not (or should not) appear for the first team at some point this season? By not taking loans from other teams we seem to have a chance to build a realy solid pool of players of our own for the future!

    krul should be number 1
    tavernier looks better than perch
    ranger is brilliant
    and Inman is a decent little player aswell,
    but all in all that team featured 5-6 players that are capable of playing in the first team.

    Starting 11 should remain unchanged!

    Ben Arfa hasn’t trained in 2 weeks so probably won’t be available for Blackpool and even then I’d like to see him eased in as an impact sub – let him pick up a bit of applause when coming on and start to build a relationship with the fans!

    Deffo don’t want Campbell ousting Willo or Colo unless they make any glaring mistakes or lose form, they’ve been awesome at the back so far and I think their confidence would take a real battering should they miss out due to a bigger name!

    Also, I still see Harper as our number 1, aside from his loyalty over the years, he broke the club record for clean sheets last year AND imo Krul is still too prone to mistakes!

    Batty by all accounts when he was at arsenhole last season he was consistently among the fastest in the sprint training sessions so it appears you are the knob rot.

    On reading your posts I am becoming more and more convinced that you are a mackem, your knowledge of football is abysmal, your spelling is abysmal, your grammar is abysmal, your attitude is abysmal, you are definitely one whose shoe size exceeds their IQ.

    Are you sure you’re not a mackem?????

    Dont post much Batts – still read them though to keep up to date.

    What are the rules re loan signings? When is the date they must be registered – think its different in the PL to the Championship.

    If its still poss I wouldnt be surprised to see CH pull a loan out of the bag for a LB or CF.

    people keep leavving smith out of their line ups which isnt ever gonna happen. he does that job of the dirty stuff so well that we barely notice him playing.

    and also 25 man squad to be announced soon! with unlimited under 21s to be made available, my 25 are:

    s. taylor
    r. taylor
    ben arfa

    and the rest, by my reckoning, fall into the under 21 category meaning we have one space left to sign one person on loan…. i wonder if this has crfossed chris’ mind already?
