Players Have Their Say On Social Media After Two Consecutive Wins


Newcastle came through after a shaky start yesterday at St James Park. The lads claimed our fourth win of the season just before the break. It launched us to 11th in the table only 2 points behind 5th place Sheffield United.

Unfortunately, we are 10 points away from the Champions League positions at the moment. But we’ll just give Steve Bruce and the lads another couple of games to close that gap. 🙂

What was different about this win from the others was that the players fought back from an early Bournemouth goal to get the three points. It was a magnificent turn-around after a poor first 25 minutes.

There were so many players who stood out yesterday in what was a terrific team effort. Newcastle again looked a threat going forward and had some heroic performances defensively. It was an excellent all-around performance for the second straight week.

Now there is still the glaring issue with our finishing. This time Joelinton joined Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron in squandering clear cut chances. The positive is that they are getting closer and closer, but we really should have scored more than just the two goals.

However, it’s three points and two consecutive wins right before the break. We are very pleased with that and here’s what some of the players had so say:

DeAndre Yedlin posted his response to a video comparing his fantastic header to some rather comical aerial exploits.

    why would bruce be hated by the players? Most of them probably didn’t know who he was. Apart from being prone to a bit of self promotion and credit claiming, bruce comes across as an avuncular friendly character who you wouldn’t object to having a drink with.

    On another matter, as someone who was born and lived in Tanzania I’d love us to sign Samatta. He’d definitely be a first.

    Tickets bought to see simple minds in Dublin in April and the toon winning, it’s been a great weekend.

    Rotonda…………… Mambo rafiki interesting to hear you lived in Tanzania, I’m in Dar at the moment. Living in Oyster Bay just opposite the Slipway hotel. I love it here and have also been making the case for us to sign Samatta for a while. He defo knows where the net is.
    Off to Cape Town fish market later to watch the Liverpool match on their big screen.

    I imagine Howe will be having a few words to his defence about Yedlin’s goal.
    There’s a good spirit about the team these days brought about, IMO, by the outstanding work rate of Almiron and Maximin in particular.
    The forwards will get on the scoresheet before long, and when they do some team is going to have to watch out.

    What’s happened to St Hibbit

    1) In three days of official mourning because we won and folks at the game were enjoying themselves.
    2) On the phone to the Samaritans.
    3) Still counting empty seats.

    NO posada I’ve not been doing any of those’s things, I’ve been to the Cenotaph paying my respects to our fallen hero’s,
    not on here trying to score brownie points on here with your petty name calling,

    Villa without Heaton and now his replacement Jed Steer going off injured – hopefully none recover within the fortnight.

    Typical St Hibbitt.
    Always playing the Martyr and looking for praise/sympathy.

    I went to a Service of Remembrance as well.
    Left the house at 10am. Walked a mile to get there and back home again just after half eleven.

    What were you doing.
    Maintaining an all night vigil at the Cenotaph I suppose.

    Wolves just scored from a free kick every Villa defender flinched to let the ball go into the net, Jonjo should have a great day against the chickens.

    giimps @14(previous): doesn’t that unnecessarily reduce the width and lead us to lose the ball? It’s better to be mostly on one’s stronger side, IMHO.

    Apart from a couple of bladey-style characters I don’t see any evidence that there is a group of miserable posters hoping we get defeated/relegated so they can rejoice in the disaster. This is a myth – the pessimists are actually the realists who see things just as they are – we are still owned by Ashley, the policy still is not to over extend and just stay in the league. That was reinforced by supplanting an ambitious top rated manager with a championship journeyman who turned us down when his career was at its peak. But the same realists rejoice in us winning and are just as happy as any fan should be that relegation can be avoided.

    But hang on a minute – isn’t the “fair and balanced” approach applicable to our coaching setup? Yes we have won, but the obvious signs we are riding our luck and using up our guile are there and worth pointing out. It’s fair and balanced to say we have crept backward from the last half of last season to dogged defending all game, defensive players are top scorers and the man of the match. It’s fair and balanced to see this style of approach is as likely to set us on a worrying run as a good one. It seems fair and balanced was ok when we were definitely under the right guidance of a top class manager, but not applicable when there are cracks in the walls of this championship coaching team.

    And then there’s the “we just want a team that tries” thing – doesn’t the “team” include the management and the owner? Are they trying to get us to win anything?

    So why do some loudly create this mythical group of negative moaners who want to see us fail? Is it because of the insecurity of those who know they are prolonging the agony by supporting this lot, who know they are just happy to watch the circus and just want to brush their complicit apathy under the carpet by shaming others who point it out?

    Alright – slide your feet into mike’s cast off slippers and get comfy. But get used to the critics because they won’t go away until Mike does.

    Eh??

    The obvious signs are we are riding our luck?? We have crept backward from the last half of last season to dogged defending all game??

    And you say this is your “fair and balanced” approach??

    Riding our luck? We’ve missed more chances than other teams have against us.

    Crept backwards? We’ve got nearly double the points of last season at the same stage and we’ve won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of our last five games – every bit as good as our best form in the last half of last season.

    Dogged defending all game?? Do you actually watch the matches or just MOTD highlights? We had 20 shots yesterday and we’ve scored 5 goals in the last two games and created a boat load of chances.

    Our defenders are scoring goals because Bruce has encouraged the CB’s to get forward and demanded a goal contribution from them, worked on set pieces and corners in training and told Yedlin and Willems to play higher up the pitch and get into the box when we are attacking. The opposite of Rafa’s defend and don’t concede first and attack but not too adventurously second.

    I don’t call your views fair and balanced.

    I call them deluded.

    And, Bleatin, another one of your miles off opinions was that I just go to the match for the craic, day out and a pint with my mates afterwards and couldn’t really care about the direction the club is going in.

    You sound just like the type who thinks he is always right…

    But is nearly always wrong.
