Video Highlights Of Newcastle’s Satisfying 2-0 Win Against Fiorentina

Newcastle played well this afternoon and beat a very decent Fiorentina side 2-0 in the Sela Cup and we have the video highlights of what turned out to be a good performance from the lads.

It was good to get a clean sheet with Martin Dubravka in goal for the whole game.

Here is the team Newcastle started today:

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka; Kieran Trippier, Alex Murphy, Sven Botman, Matt Targett; Lewis Miley, Sandro Tonali, Elliot Anderson; Miguel Almirón, Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon.

Substitutes: Mark Gillespie, Jude Smith, Remi Savage, Charlie McArthur, Jordan Hackett, Nathan Carlyon, Jamie Miley, Lucas De Bolle, James Huntley, Jay Turner-Cooke, Ben Parkinson, Amadou Diallo, Michael Ndiweni.

Newcastle had some chances in the first half and finally went ahead with a goal in the 38th minute.

That man Miguel Almiron scored again, after some great work from Alexander Isak, who looks like he will start up front against Aston Villa next weekend, at the expense of Callum Wilson.

On another day we could have had more goals but we finally went further ahead late in the game, after 82 minutes, when Isak headed home strongly to give Newcastle a very good 2-0 win.

One good thing about today’s game is that both Lewis Miley and Elliot Anderson had good games in central midfiled, and that’s a massive bonus for Eddie Howe.

The central three – with Italaian Internationa Sandro Tonali, played very well in the engine room.

And I would be surprised if Newcastle bring in another central midiflder this summer, we hardly need one.

We do need a pacey right footed center-back, however.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano is reporting today Newcastle are now interested in signing center back Joachim Anderson from Crystal POalace, after we sign Tino Lavramento, who is now in Newcastle – hopefully signing along the bottom line soon.

Lavramento was in the Director’s box today watchuing the game.

Cetsral Palace’s center-back Anderson very rarely gives the ball away and the reliable 27-year-old Danish International, who stands 6ft 4ins tall, can play either left or right central defense.

A game against Villareal tomorrow is next on the agenda, so it’s all go this weekend for Eddie Howe’s PL squad.

The Premier League season finally kicks off next weekend and we play at home to a strong looking Aston Villa side: it will be a tough opener for us.

Here are the highlights of today’s game.

    I remember those Hellas Verona fans that turned up, there was only about thirty of them but they never stopped the full game.

    Taco – wud luv it if AM stepped up and became the answer

    Big call but like u said, was signed for a reason

    I think Ashby will come back a new person too

    I love this investing in the youth approach by the way – Anderson, Murphy and Miley around first team is awesome

    We could see Anderson start next week fulfilling the Willock role. Joelinton as LF and those two swapping with each other periodically.

    It would make sense as Villa like to control the middle of the park. We then have a wide forward who is more than capable of dropping in and providing numbers in the middle. [A] Bit of steel from Joel and a bit of pickpocketing from Anderson.

    Couple that with Bruno and Tonali and we’re going top of the league and villa are going bottom.

    I do worry about the pace in that line up though… 😀

    Good point on A.Murphy. He certainly seems adept at numerous positions across the back line. Isn’t afraid to take people on and he hasn’t once looked out of place in preseason. Looked quite good at LB when he came on for Schär.

    It is the true path to long term success. Get them in young and develop them. Not everyone will make it but some will.

    Each one we develop far enough saves us millions and even some that might not make it here may cost other clubs millions to buy.

    This is they way.

    If Kane leaves Spurs before the end of the month and he is in a person’s (not necessarily this person’s) team. Can one still sell him for full price or does he just disappear along with one’s £11m?

    Raj they sound top class. I think any away fans for a friendly game deserve credit, especially in a cost of living crisis.

    I think unless we have any injuries from todays match or tomorrow’s, it would have been a very good pre season. Since we’ve added class to our side in Tonali and about to add Tino who is a very talented player imo.

    Good stuff, mate.
    Again, both excellent pros. I just get the feeling that Eddie’s saving Dan, working in Matt, after a lay off.
    Burn offers a bit more versatility, imv. But Targett won’t let us down…all to play for!


    A Murphy looks very accomplished, and you hardly know he’s there. That’s a compliment, btw.
    Well done Alex!
    One of us mate!
    Good player, could end up great!

    I really love this squad of players! Quality, passion and togetherness. A lot of the players can cover several positions too which means we have a lot of options.
    Brought in quality in Barnes, Tonali and hopefully Livramento soon.

    IMO not much more business is needed!

    Keepers: Pope, Dubravka, Karius, Gillespie. Sell Dubravka or Gillespie.

    Defenders: Trippier, Livramento, Schar, Lacelles, Botman, Burn, A.Murphy, Targett, Dummet, Krafth, Manquillo. Buy a new leftback (Targett backup), sell Manquillo,

    Midfielders: Bruno, Tonali, Joelinton, willock, Longstaff, Anderson, Miley, fantastic group of players!!

    Attack: Barnes, Gordon, Almiron, Murphy, Isak, Wilson.

    If Livramento signs which is expected I would like a new quality left back! If we can Get more Im fine with that, a new RCH. HWTL

    Thanks all the same but I can’t take any credit at all, all I’ve done is taken two minutes to set up a league and copied and pasted the excellent Wor B’s posts, much to his delight 😀
