Newcastle Much Improved And Lead West Ham 1-0 At The Half


Newcastle started off very well in what looked to be a 3-5-2 formation with Muto and Sorensen upfront. They seemed much more comfortable and controlled the midfield.

Having two strikers upfront with Ritchie and Sterry out wide worked very well as Newcastle had the best chances.

Jonjo Shelvey released Hayden down the right with a beautiful pass in the 8th minute. Hayden’s subsequent cross led to an excellent chance for Elias Sorensen who skied the ball over the net.

It was a disappointing miss for the youngster who should have done better with the chance.

The 25-minute mark brought another prescheduled water break but it was back to Newcastle controlling the game.

Yoshinori Muto got Newcastle on the board with an excellent finish in the 33rd minute. The delivery from Jamie Sterry was very good.

This was a lively display from the lads who looked much improved from the last match against Wolves.

    The team look so much better when playing with a back 5. Muto looked very good, now he has someone up top with him.

    I won’t refer to us as NUFC until Ashley has gone. We are Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United Retail Emporium or MANURE for short

    So Linton may go to Wolves now according to sky – apparently we’re in the driving seat but the trouble is that Charnley hasn’t passed his test and is still in his mum’s Austen Allegro whilst Wolves are driving a formula 2 car …
    Couldn’t get it over the line … Decided to give youth a chance blah blah

    Yep, the p-layers look totally disorganised, dispirited and look as if they’ve already accepted relegation with cabbage head in charge..

    NOT!!!!!!!

    We’ve had more payers ahead of the ball and in the box than I’ve seen in a long time.

    Much better. The balance between first time regulars and youngsters is about right.

    Both Sorensen and Sterry have played well. Sorensen looks very promising.

    I’ve never seen Muto play so well. Is it because he has a partner up front ?

    Shelvey looks very composed and his passes have been pinpoint.

    Not quite sure which position Hayden is playing but he is very effective.

    Much to my misgivings but Colback has been good, especially his runs into the box although the number of fouls he has committed still remains far too high and would be punished in the Premier League.

    So Bill thinks we’re a much better team without Rondon / Perez and seems we don’t even need any signings as muto is a world beater when playing two up front – HWTL #fckashley #boycottarsenal #gotoawaygames

    Bills, you carry on like nothings happened over the last 12 years, and in particular, the last 3 months, that justifies supporters being unhappy.
    Are you happy with what’s been going on?

    Bills I’ve told you before, it’s irrelevant. If we get off to a good start next season, it doesn’t matter, it’s papering over the cracks. Nothing can be celebrated at our club while Ashley remains in charge as any success will only be spun by the pro Ashley PR for their own ends.

    Don’t be sucked in. The only thing that matters is Ashley leaving our club.

    3 centre backs, wing backs, Shelvey in the Pirlo role. Looking very good, with perhaps Longstaff and Hayden to play in front of him, Joelinton and Almiron up top. Ki in the mix. Potentially very tasty.

    Colback has already refused to leave – he’s happy to run down his contract and pick up PREM wages, he can then leave for nowt and get a few million signing on fee – same as a few other players we’ve had since Ashley took over … And babayaro beforehand … Jeez he wouldn’t even go on loan

    Mindshaft,

    You are talking nonsense again.

    I’ve never said ANYTHING that you claimed I posted. Not a word.

    All I pointed out re the Wolves game was that we lost 6-0 against Doncaster in our first friendly before the we won the Champs with Hughton.

    And all I’ve said about this game is that we look up for it and are getting more players forward than I’ve seen in a long time.

    Go back and check.

    You are talking absolute TRIPE.
