Loan Update – Superb Woodman Gets Clean Sheet And Saves Penalty



Freddie Woodman and Swansea have advanced to the next round of the FA Cup. Woodman collects another clean sheet in the 2-0 win at Stevenage yesterday. Former Magpie Wayne Routledge got Swans going with a header in the 7th minute while Viktor Gyökeres added another early in the second half.

Swansea were put under a lot of pressure by League Two Stevenage, who defeated Newcastle in this competition in 2011. Freddie Woodman was called into action with some timely saves. None bigger than the extraordinary penalty save in the 82nd minute on Luke Norris. For his exploits, Woodman was voted as the Man of the Match by the Swansea faithful.

You can see Freddie’s save at the 3:25 mark on the video here. He made another outstanding save at 3:55. For Swansea, Woodman has saved 4 of the 7 penalties he’s faced.

Kelland Watts started in Plymouth’s FA Cup 3-2 win at Huddersfield yesterday. It was a back and forth game with both sides scoring twice in the first half. However, the Pilgrims took the lead with a 70th-minute goal from Joe Edwards.

Rolando Aarons made his debut in the 71st minute coming on for Patrick Jones. However, Plymouth were able to hold off the Terriers to advance to the fourth round.

    Following the entertaining and patriotic #nufc matters zoom chat with Kieth Patterson, lack of blog article and some slightly misleading propitious summaries, I thought I may attempt a balanced recap.

    From memory Kieth established his credentials through his previous attempts at assisting with fan groups, a similar £25m legal case he has previously undertaken with one of his own businesses and the fact that he is using his own money, time and effort to ‘get in the room’ with those in the know.

    Despite being unable to comment directly on the legal case or offer a time line, he confirmed the club have also started proceedings in an effort to primarily push through a transfer of ownership. Which despite his reservations for the owner he could only urge every Geordie to get behind. Suggesting “that you wouldn’t mouth off to your future ex-wife whilst entering the divorce court”.

    Admiring the work of Amanda Stavely and wanting to reflect the name of the PCP group, the Consortium had a very strong case and more to reveal/question, Kieth confidently declared. Also letting slip that his lawyers gauged the PL response from B&B as a “2 out of ten response” to the real issues of the case. Perhaps hoping that they would suffocate or eventually settle the anti-competition case before getting to argue their flimsy defence in court.

    Kieth was apologetic towards those that he may have given short shrift or even blocked on Twitter, declaring his resources and energy were better utilised elsewhere in the push for an outcome all aspire. He had initially not intended to become a figure head by using a limited company and was not used to the slings and arrows of publicity, wishing to retract back to enjoyable conversations “down the pub”.

    Having the utmost confidence that the Premier League have been delinquent in there actions and possessing the public documents to support such a claim, Kieth believes that both legal actions can not fail. Whilst his team are ready and waiting to proceed, he believes the Nick deMarco team representing the club may start to get underway this month. On his belief in the strength of the case and without any impediments, this would then allow the transfer of ownership to be completed in March. Knowing that all parties are still in favour of proceeding, but relegation is perhaps a factor that may jeopardise the completion. He stressed how irritated the PL must be and consequently strongly hinder the issue from being resolved, but still predicted a resolution by the end of the season.

    On the whole I took Mr Patterson to be an honest individual who had won the day on many occasions in his business life. Providing him with the affluence to be more than comfortable and even wasteful, on what some may term a fools errand and many of his friends have said as much. However he will deserve celebrating if the KSA PIF takeover is eventually successful for standing up for what is right in the face of Goliaths and showing how ‘canny’ Geordies can be.

    No you didn’t (unless your quashing post was removed).

    you did pop in and leave – but didn’t say if you’d been moderated or sin binned.

    The Tsunki mentioned a few had been moderated so I asked who…

    Unlucky last night, especially Andy Carroll who gave them a torrid time all over the pitch. Maybe he shouldn’t have missed that chance but he was there and all CFs miss chances. Would love to see him partnering Wilson. When he came off we were a weaker side.

    Some very good performances too. Dubravka slotted right in. Ritchie, Hayden, the youngster and others did their best. Did Yedlin grow by about six inches or was it the do?

    Of course we’re still more graft than craft but we gave them a game and could’ve won.

    One ongoing criticism.

    Throw ins.

    Nobody wants the ball. Or rather there’s usually two of ours vs four of theirs competing for it.

    Result? We ALWAYS lose it.

    Next session, four hours: how to retain a ball from throw ins.

    I have some suggestions but aren’t they obvious?

    I popped in to squash the theory of me being moderated as I was told the rumour was going about.

    I also posted on an old thread during this time to prove it.

    I don’t think anyone has been moderated mate, well I know I haven’t I’m just stepping away.

    But you can’t stop wild theories on this blog that’s for sure 😉

    Cpyrus. Couldn’t agree more about throw-ins. Have been shouting at the telly all season. No movement. No variation and always goes to the same 1 or 2 players who then pass it back to the person who took the throw in. We may as well assume defensive positions and just throw the ball to the opposition – we’d be better off.

    Hi Mund, good to see you’re still in fine fettle. Still on the Captains bus? Or has the positivity level dropped a few notches? – Me, I’m still confident just wouldn’t want to attempt to put a date on it, hoping before end of this Season is as good as it could get 🙂

If you feel I’ve missed you out, I’m sorry but I’ve been away a while and the old memory is not what it was. There is no malice in my omission just a crap memory – cheers to you all. 😉

    Here’s a thought, I’ve realised I’m not a true supporter. I’m a fan, but not a supporter.
    To be a supporter, I suppose you have to give something to the Club, like buy a ticket, or merchandise or something along those lines.
    I’ve not done any of that for the last eight or more years, although I had a Sky sports subscription for most of that time. I gave that up last year and have no intention of renewing, so my last vestige of “support” is gone!
    I hope you’ll still speak to me, as a fan, but obviously my voice is weaker than many on here who are long time Season Ticket holders and have therefore been “supporting” the club.
    I still don’t shop at Sports Direct, I no longer shop at House of Fraser, and never buy any brand associated with MA. However, I sincerely wish him all the very best in his endeavours to sell our club. – Who knows it may lead to me “supporting” again in as many ways as I can!

    I largely left to escape the interminable “vegan” inspired rows that had become a daily feature and almost made the blog unreadable, you had to plough through so much crap to find a thread of decent chat. It coincided with me going “off the grid” with regards to social media, news outlets etc. Just so I could refresh myself mentally away from the constant bad news and (at that time) spiralling takeover stuff that was getting out of hand in many ways. I enjoy spirited discussion, but not the name calling nonsense that can often follow a defeated argument, I don’t see the point in that and will avoid it wherever possible. I was finding myself being “dragged” into stuff (mainly on Twitter) but occasionally on here as well, and thought it better to step back.

    Are Leeds prioritising the PL or just being overrun?
