Newcastle Close Wild Season With 3-1 Loss To Liverpool



Liverpool were just too much today as the Magpies close this crazy season with a 3-1 defeat to the champions.

Newcastle emerged from the tunnel making one change after the 1-1 first half. Joelinton, and his new magenta hair, was brought on for Allan Saint-Maximin, who had a quiet first half.

Just three minutes into the half, Bruce was forced to make a second change after Nabil Bentaleb was brought off for Sean Longstaff. Bentaleb had suffered a knee injury in the first half, which he seemed to aggravate upon landing after an aerial duel.

Longstaff got Newcastle’s third shot of the match in the 50th minute after Jonjo Shelvey cooly cushioned a ball into his path outside the box. Sean’s effort went skidding just wide of the goal.

Liverpool took the lead like a flash of lightning in the 59th minute. The ball was launched up the pitch to Andrew Robertson down the left. He tapped the ball to Divock Origi, who cut inside and launched a shot from just outside the box that beat Dubravka.

Newcastle afforded the Liverpool striker far too much space and should have closed him down.


Klopp brought on some of his big guns for the final 25 minutes in Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino. Salah almost bagged his 20th of the season, hitting the post just minutes after coming on.

Bruce then made another two substitutions bringing Andy Carroll and Isaac Hayden on for Dwight Gayle and Miguel Almiron giving Newcastle some more steel on the pitch.

Salah soon got another chance in the 72nd minute on a one-on-one with Dubravka. However, Federico Fernandez was able to recover and performed a brilliant sliding tackle to deny the Egyptian.

Bruce made his final change in the 74th minute, and it’ll be one to remember as Kelland Watts was brought on for Danny Rose. What a moment for the young lad as he finally gets his debut.

Liverpool added another through Sadio Mane in the 87th minute. He cut in from the left and launched a shot past into the back of the net. Newcastle once again allowed one of Liverpool’s danger men too much space.

It was a promising start to this one but a familiar outcome as Newcastle fall to Liverpool 3-1 for a second time this season. We remain in 13th place on 44 points but it’s another defeat as we end the campaign on a five-match winless streak.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player In Defeat To Liverpool?

    Well I enjoyed that
    Four good goals – no flukes
    LPool one of the best sides in world footy beat us well in the end
    However we weren’t shown up
    Carroll should think about becoming a CB cos he ain’t a striker any more

    Repost – Missed the bus!

    So Watford & Bournemouth join Norwich in The Championship next season!

    Aston Villa hang on by the skin of their teeth.

    I would have preferred Villa to go down but it seems to like poetic justice that Watford take the drop after sacking their Manager Nigel Pearson with two games to go!

    We’ve got a hell of a lot of work to do to get higher than 13th!

    Repost not sorry;

    Goodbye and good riddance to a depressing season.

    Norwich sorry it didn’t work out, you’re welcome to Bruce for your push next season without Aarons Hernandez Cantwell Godfrey and Buendia.

    Villa I hate you very much.

    Watford you got what you deserve.

    Ashley GET OUT OF OUR CLUB

    Bruce cheerio local dinosaur.

    Well I know boycotts are a sore subject but personally I’m SOOOOOO glad I never paid a penny to watch any of that season. Absolutely dire beyond description, meaningless, hopeless, we are the vagrant of the league there in the town centre but sleeping in a shut down shop doorway watching life go by. Why we give air space to anyone saying things were better than expected or did well under the circumstances is beyond me. It’s a complete waste of time.

    It’s pathetic mate it really is a pointless endless debate.

    Even the Bruce lovers would say Rafa is better and would be there preferred manager so what’s the point in all this.

    Congrats Stephen Roger Bruce. It was grim at times, but you kept our creaking ship afloat when many – including those aboard cough, cough, were sure it would sink.

    That’ll do so son, that’ll do….

    So what we going to talk about for the next seven weeks?

    We weren’t good today but hey ho, I don’t think anyone is bothered.

    I don’t think we had a man o’ the match, all looked jaded, maybe Gayle?

    And can I just add to Ed and Neil, your mobile site is nothing short of abysmal, thank goodness I don’t have to use it.

    Let’s look at the ultimate positive in all this and that it’s over. The season has ended and with that the Ashley era will be gone.

    No more comparing past managers, we will have our new messiah on whoever that may be (looking at you Poch 😉 )

    No more looking back and dreaming what could of been under El Jefe (cheers Tsunki) we will dream the dreams and see them become a reality.

    This will be a beautiful era that’s just upon us and then we will all be YANITED.

    Back to being great again.

    Very well said Martoon.

    Mund, I don’t love Bruce, but he kept us safe when many screamers had us relegated.

    For that I thank him. Cud have been worse.
