Relive One Of Newcastle’s Greatest Ever Moments In The Premier League – Video

It’s eight years ago today that Newcastle staged the greatest comeback in Premier League history when we were 4-0 down at half time at St. James’ Park to Arsenal and somehow came back to get a 4-4 draw.

Cheick Tiote scored the equalizing goal late in the game and went nuts.

Cheick has now passed away but we will always remember him – rest in peace Cheick Tiote.

The comeback was news around the world.

Relive that game right now and feel really good!

    Check Tiote. A mixed bag but on his day an absolute tank a bit like Juggernaut from the X-Men. It was delightful to watch him kick assorted “hard men” up high in the air and crush the will of the most resolute attacking midfielder. 😀

    Will live on for the goal and wild celebrations that followed.

    For those worrying about Almiron being too slight for the PL , have no fear he will have the perfect foil in Perez who will show him exactly how not to get knocked off the ball too easily.

    Who needs the video anyway? Certain moments are ingrained in the psyche of NUFC fans anyway ready for instant replay with no need for tech. Albert’s lob Vs man U. Asprilla’s three goals Vs Barcelona.

    Cheik’s thunderbolt Vs arsenal is one of them

    I dunno Perez seems to get cautioned quite a bit for knocking some rather larger than him players off the ball. Maybe he just gets tangled in their legs.

    My apologies sir – I’d responded to your post about Keegan taking over from Keegan but erroneously referred to Keegan’s second coming overlooking his first as manager.

    one fine day pointed out my oversight – Thank you OFD.

    Good grief……. I couldn’t even get that post right!

    It should’ve read –

    I really am sick of seeing Perez’s posterior end pointing skyward whilst he takes an eternity to get to his feet after being shoved enceremoniously off the ball and on to the turf. Followed by his pleading expression to the referee with those awful cow eyes, reminiscent of Manuel in Fawlty Towers during the fire episode, then when he has made his case that he was unfairly brought down for the umpteenth time all to no avail , finally getting up and jogging away indignantly perfectly OK to continue.

    The one time he should have gone over in the penalty area when he was obviously fouled he battled to stay on his feet! He should watch videos of Jonas now he was an expert free kick extractor. 🙂

    Ex-Manchester United boss José Mourinho has agreed a prison term in Spain for tax fraud but will not go to jail.
    A one-year prison sentence will instead be exchanged for a fine of €182,500 (£160,160). That will be added to a separate fine of €2m.

    About the equivalent of a parking Fine considering he trousered £18million from Man Ure.

    Meanwhile Ashley has missed out on HMV so can we have our money back, pretty please

    Perez undoubtedly has some skills to call upon there is no denying that , particularly his deft little flicks and ability to redirect an already moving ball. However for minutes played against meaningful contributions made he just hasn’t made the grade. How long has he been a work in progress who is eventually going to come good and how many more goals would we have scored if someone better had have been in the many promising situations that he’s wasted.

    Would not like to pick a signal goal out as Ive seem that many since the late 60s and to me any goal that nufc scores is special weather its a tap in or a screamer

    Bambams, Keegan was one of the best, fantastic football to watch and a great guy. I used to attempt to train for him with the lads once a week, but had to spend most of my time doing press ups or sit ups for getting stuff wrong

    Best session ever I was playing on right wing, he was behind me as a right back, shouting to pass to him and couldn’t afford not to use him. I ignored, put a cross in and Alan Thompson headed home past Pav

    I’ve said the same about Perez (although I think I’m more of a fan of his).

    He does a lot of good things. He shifts his body to beat his man to free up some space. He has good little flicks and through balls. He finds space to get a shot away.

    The negative things for me are that once he’s done all that he seems to not have the ability to capitalise on it. Once he’s opened the space he needs to burst into it to put defenders on the back foot. If he gets space for his shot he needs to either put more power behind it or pick a spot in the corner, not just a tame effort in the middle of the goal.

    I really hoped he’d have developed that more by now and would be at the next level, but it seems like this is his current level and he isn’t going to kick on.

    Saying that, I really like him and think he’s been our best option in that position. With Almiron coming in, hopefully he’ll be more decisive in his action and can pass this on to Perez.

    Perez is one of our biggest contributors and outside the top six one of the most productive players.

    Four four two wrote this on Twitter acc when listing top 100 bargains:
    “Perez doesn’t turn many heads, but in a low-scoring side he averaged a goal or assist every other league game last season, while only five other players outside the ‘big six’ clubs contributed more in 2018.”

    Agree that he does contribute, I just look at him play and think that if he could just take that next step he could be on a whole other level.

    I’m sure it’s the same at every club but there always seems to be a scapegoat. There’s a toonbotherer at every club from Accrington Stsnley to Zenit St Petersburg

    I think having Almiron playing on the pitch will actually improve Perez there games look suited to playing with each other.

    The little first time flicks into space are tailor made for someone like Almiron to run onto also Perez can maybe focus a bit more on being on the end of chances in the box rather than being asked to make the chances.

    Simon – the only problem I have with Keegan is scrapping the reserves in a fit of pique. We lost a lot of good young players and a couple of mates of mine suddenly became unemployed!

    Who’s going to make way for Almiron, the way we’ve been set up recently if Barreca comes in at LWB then I would assume that Ritchie will take Atsu’s place and Almiron Perez’. What has actually been Atsu’s official position in this 5-3-1-1, or 5-3-2 as it used to be known.

    Was it not to do with Gateshead refusing to allow us use of their pitch, it must have been before advancements in pitch technology because the pitch used to get in to a right state from lack of sun and a long winter. He needed a perfect pitch to play our game.

    OMG, the Perez debate seems to be still rattling around the blog. As a player he does run his socks off, but some have indicated his taking forever to get up and plead with the ref with his hands out to his side.

    He needs to knock that part out of his game and just get on with it, no ref has ever really changed there mind two minutes later.

    Perez is a weird cat, when he starts a game he just does not seem to be the player he could be, when he comes of the bench he looks awesome.

    Tricky really for Rafa, keep him on the bench plays better or start him hoping that he finally gets it.

    Why the hell does Monday seem so far away and we could be in a relegation spot come Monday evening, god I hope this week goes quick.

    At the end of the day Perez was bought for 2.2M as a development player and thrown in at the deep end. I’m sure if we were run properly he’d be a very good addition to have in the squad, Like Dummet and Yedlin.

    I’d presume that Ritchie will make way for Barreca and Atsu for Aliron.

    Perez and Almiron behind Rondon, with the width coming from the fullbacks would be my preference.

    Almiron will be our number ten as that is his natural position. He can play from a deeper more compact position as is Rafa’s style and create space and opportunities with his pace, ball retention and ability to beat defenders which Perez can not do.

    If Perez is played as a striker in and around the box then he may get some knock downs or through balls to score a few goals with the skills that he possesses.

    Jail………. Yes Perez was thrown in at the deep end when he arrived agreed, but he looked a far better player then who should have progressed far more with the opportunities he’s had over the last few years. What he cost back then is irrelevant and he was swimming along nicely in the deep end. Now he is constantly sinking to the bottom and gasping for air. He just hasn’t trained on to use a horse racing analogy.
