Video Highlights Of Newcastle’s Fabulous 4-0 Win Over Villareal



Eddie Howe seems to have the lads in top form ready for the Premier League opener next Saturday against Aston Villa at home.

In the game today Newcastle beat a good Villareal side 4-0 and the last two performances in two days, two clean sheets, and a cumulative 6-0 scoreline gives us real hope for Newcastle’s upcoming season.

๐Ÿ™‚

It was all change from yesterday’s side with Eddie naming the following starting eleven.

Pope, Murphy, Lascelles (Savage 88), Dummett, Burn, Ritchie, Bruno, Longstaff, Joelinton, Barnes (Parkinson 83), Wilson (Diallo 88)

Subs:ย  Gillespie, De Bolle, Carlyon, J Miley, Turner-Cooke, Hackett, Ndiweni, Huntley, McArthur

Notice that Jacob Murphy started at right back and he scored a great goal early in the first half (6 mins).

A brace from Barnes were both right-footed shots as he came in from the left wing – trademark Barnes’ goals.

And a cracking goal from former striker Joelinton, as he gathered the ball on the halfway line,ย  took us through to a fairly comfortable victory and we win the inaugural Sela Cup with 2 wins in 2 games.

Murphy had an excellent game at right-back – there’s an eye-opener on Murphy, who seems to get better and better under Eddie Howe – maybe he can become an attacking right-back?

The boys seem to be coming into form at just the right time – thanks to Eddie Howe and his coaching staff’s detailed preseason plans.

And with Harvey Barnes having to fight for that left-wing position, he put in an excellent performance this afternoon.

The left winger was applauded off the field after 83 minutes, and it was an excellent first game for the former Leicester winger at St. James Park.

The 25-year-old has every chance of becoming a big player for us under Eddie Howe.

๐Ÿ™‚

And here is the earlier video version I had out with Spanish commentary – if you also want to take a look at this one.

So after our final game of preseason, we now have a week of full training by the very impressive Eddie Howe and his staff.

And we’re sure the boys will be ready for a tough game against the rejuvenated Aston Villa, under new top Spanish coach Unai Emery.

Emery only took over Villa from Steven Gerrard last October, after Villa paid a buyout fee of a reported โ‚ฌ6M (ยฃ5.2M) to Villarreal.

Emery took over when Villa had only 2 wins and 3 draws (9 points) from their first 11 games.

In the final 27 games under Emery Villa managed to get 16 wins and 4 draws 52 points to end up with 61 points and 8th place – a terrific turnaround from Villa last season and they have strengthened their squad this summer.

It should be a good week’s training for the Newcastle squad, and it will be interesting to see if 31-year-old Fabian Schar can return to training: the Swiss International (76 caps, 8 goals) is currently a big doubt for our first games of the season.

The game kicks off at 5:30pm, it’s the late game next Saturday afternoon and it will be a sellout at the refurbished St. James’ Park.

Comments are always welcome.

    And having just watched Murphy’s goal (I missed the start of the game) it was indeed Fanastico! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I reckon he has been practicing missing the post!

    Joelinton MOM, a great goal and assist and a shit load of work all over the pitch, he is the true nightmare of the oppositions dreams.

    Only problem with him is that he is a YC magnet and will almost certainly miss some games this season.

    Not a problem though we have an Elliot! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Valle,
    ยฃ100m basic prize to the winner. ยฃ10m per point bonus to the winner. The trophy is is made of pure platinum and the winning club is allowed to sell it – That is why it is called the SELA cup!!

    ” Lascelles certainly had his Titus moment today but one mistake does not make him a bad player, could be costly in the EPL though. ”

    Absolutely! Some folk, apparently, have very short memories.

    Decent game nearly spoilt by over the top referee although I donโ€™t think I have ever seen as many free kicks given for shirt pulling. Murphy looked up for it. Barnes, despite some great runs reminded me a bit of Gordon last year – not at EH fitness level and unsure of the playing style – and then scored twice so what do I know. Looks good – Maxi + goals? Bruno and Joe are ready to go and should start in midfield with Tonali. Dummett, Richie and Lascelles showed they could come in for short periods against lesser opposition but I donโ€™t think any of them could do it consistently. Still think we need a Trippier quality left back and a right footed Botman. Canโ€™t wait for next Saturday should be a good game. And the mackems lost.

    Looks like we will ave a “not bad” season. I Do worry about the trolls, can we organise a points bank so they don’t finish bottom? It is just human to look after those more unfortunate.

    Shamelessly adapted from someone last week:

    To the tune of Oasis Sheโ€™s Electric

    Livramento
    Doesnโ€™t drive a Cinquecento
    Faster than a Volkswagen Vento
    Heโ€™s a Geordie now

    Need some more humorous, unique songs rather than the few same ones every week. Remember when all players had their own songs.

    Mick Mahoney super goalie.

    That might be pushing it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As I said, my guess for the amount might be wrong, but the idea is not that far fetched. Sela could chose to sponsor whatever value they saw fit to the winner, and with them being a Saudi company, who knows what deals PIF and Sela could have agreed between themselves to make that work.

    Incredible competition in attack now. Barnes, Isak, Wilson, Almiron, Murphy and Gordon. That’s top 4 quality certainly.

    Same in midfield. Bruno, Joelinton, Tonali, Longstaff, Willock, Anderson and Miley. Fantastic.

    Defence, probably not quite as strong, but still excellent. Trippier, Livramento, Schar, Burn, Botman, and Targett as go to, with Lascelles and Dummett, pretty exemplary pros as cover.

    Keepers as good a group as any in club football I think.

    I suspect Manq will go, along with Fraser, Hendrick and Hayden, before the end of the window, and a rcb and lb brought in, just to give us exactly what is required to cope with this highly competitive campaign, but you’d have to say, we are up and running and ready to take on all comers.

    I can’t remember when I last anticipated a season so much.
