‘First Goal’, ‘3 Points’, ‘Teamwork At It’s Best’ – Players Respond To Fifth Win Of The Season

The mood was one of triumph for the lads after sealing all three points at Sheffield United in quite an unconventional manner. The hosts had 76% of the possession and outshot Newcastle by a tally of 13 to 6.

However, none of that matters as it’s Newcastle who put the ball in the back of the net twice for the 0-2 victory. While it certainly wasn’t pleasing on the eyes, these players fought hard and showed resilience against an in-form team. In fact, this is the first match since September that the Blades have come away empty-handed.

As you would expect after such a strange victory, some of the players have gone on social media to express their joy with the big win. With Allan Saint-Maximin scoring his debut goal for Newcastle, he couldn’t stay away from social media.

He wasn’t the only as even the injured Jamaal Lascelles had something to say. Here are some of the social media responses to Thursday Night’s big win.

    Neil has moved on, so a chance to correct my post’s autocorrect:

    “Any positives from a deep defensive display with possession in the 20’s?

    Simple answer, plenty:

    ASM scored a great goal, a forward finally scores!

    Andy has reminded us that he’s also good at setting others up. BTW, SB, you read my posts, good on you for following my advice to start him

    Dubravka is in top form. Despite their good chances, it was evident he wasn’t letting anything through. Best game with us.

    We play to our strengths. It’s ugly, I’m a football guy and I don’t like it. But that’s what one must do: our defence is super strong and resilient. All those defenders deserve credit for the clean sheet. Fernandez is our best CB.

    Our league position and points haul is our best in the last 5 seasons, that cant be too bad.

    And… I won 25 Euros.”

    Great win last night, happy days – fans were great, at last a forward scores but dubs was definitely motm.
    Shelvey to be TGS this season? not sure many of us picked him at the start of the season 🙂
