Report – Newcastle In Stunning Three Goal Comeback In Final 25 Minutes To Win 3-2


Newcastle were two goals down at half time – like we were at West Ham last week – but our players launched an astonishing comeback in the second half and we won this game 3-2.

A stunning turnaround by Newcastle to make it five home wins in a row.

Newcastle’s goals were scored by Rondon after 65 minutes, and a Perez brace after 81 and 84 minutes

The biggest talking point in the first 45 minutes was a foul by former Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with the referee pointing to the spot.

It was after 29 minutes and Pickford should have been shown a red card.

But he seemed to talk his way out of being dismissed and then to make it worse he saves Ritchie’s spot kick – a rare miss from the Newcastle forward.

And it was a rare miss by Matt Ritchie with Pickford saving his penalty.

Two early goals were scored by Calvert Lewin after 18 minutes and Richardson after 32 minutes and Rafa will not be pleased again with Newcastle conceding two goals in the first half.

And at half time it was still 2-0.

Rafa replaced an off-form Lascelles with Paul Dummett at the start of the second half.

However, this would be a half to remember or the sold-out St. James’ Park crowd.

After 65 minutes it was still 2-0 but a nice move by Newcastle saw Salomon Rondon finish by hitting the ball into the net on the volley with his left foot.

Another really important goal from the Venezuelan.

Benitez sent Kenedy on after 723 minutes and then Jonjo Shelvey, who was making his comeback after injury, was introduced 6 minutes later.

And then in the last 10 minutes, Newcastle won the game.

First of all a mistake by England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, when he could only block the ball, had Perez in there quickly to fire home the equalizer and it was 2-2.

And then following a corner form Shelvey it was again Perez who pounced on a loose ball to fire home and some amazing scenes from the sold-out crowd and the Newcastle players.

A gusty and amazing comeback from this hard-working and courageous Newcastle team.

It was just as well we did win with Southampton beating Spurs 2-1, Cardiff beating West Ham 2-0 and Brighton beating Crystal Palace 2-1 away.

    Well well well

    Firstly, fantastic comeback from the lads and much deserved after the ref clearly decided that he wanted to play for Everton and that he just loves that Mackem stiff Pickford.

    Secondly, Ayoze and Rondon were brilliant playing off each other once again. I thought all the lads did well Today. A few mistakes here and there and Ritchie and Almiron didn’t really look on the same page at times but both tried to run at the defence so can’t fault them and the lads put one hell of a shift in in the second half.

    And finally,

    Everton fans can cry all the way home and make their usual excuses the dirty rats. Seen nothing but dribble written online about us from their deluded fake fans all week!

    Kings of the North East 3 – 2 Little shadow club in Merseyside.

    Oh yeah and RAFA is GOD!

    Get in the TOON!

    Great to see the Toon fight back from a 2 – 0 deficit. That’s the kind of fight we need to stay in the EPL. What a game!!! And Jordan Pickford is a poes (I guess you need to be South African to understand what that means, but you probably get the idea). Should’ve been a red card in my view. Deliberate foul to prevent the goal. Justice was served!

    I wonder if Gareth Southgate watched pissteeth Pickford Today?

    Maybe he’ll leave him out of the England squad so he can focus on going back to being a full time pill munching raver back in the land of the unwashed
