Magnificent Newcastle Tear The Blades Apart 8-0 – Our Biggest Away Win In The Premier League – Video Highlights

I remember well in Sir Bobby Ronbson’s first home game of the season back in 1999 when Newcastle tore apart Sheffield Wednesday, 9-0 (Alan Shearer scored 5) and at that time the Owels were bottom of the league and we were second bottom.

Today, after a mediocre start to the game, we tore apart that other Sheffield team, Sheffield United (The Blades) 8-0 – for our best away win in the Premier League – and our best competitive win away from home – in our history.

And we had 8 different scorers, with nobody getting two goals.

That’s a Premier League record.

Things seemed to change when Anthony Gordon came on for the injured Harvey Barnes after just 12 minutes.

It is simply a magnificent win and display from our boys, and so much for head coach Eddie Howe being under pressure, at Newcastle, as some national reporters said last week.

It was also our third game in a row with a clean sheet and our goal difference of +9 is the 4th best in the Premier League.


This result has reminded people that Newcastle United are on the up, and hopefully, we can now put a string of Premier League wins together to rise up the league table from the 8th position we are in at the moment.

Here are the goalscorers and times

S Longstaff (21 minutes), Burn (31 minutes), Botman (35 minutes), Wilson (56 minutes), Gordon (61 minutes), Almirón (68 minutes), Bruno Guimarães (73 minutes), Isak (87 minutes)

And here are the assists with Kieran Trippier getting 3:

Gordon (21 minutes), Trippier (31 minutes, 35 minutes, 56 minutes), Anderson (61 minutes), Bruno Guimarães (68’minutes)

We had 22 shots at goal with 15 on target and basically dominated a Sheffield United team who are finding things tough in the Premier League after just being promoted last season.

The midfield three played well with Sean Longstaff having a terrific game and again, Elliot Anderson played well in the center of the park with Sean and Bruno Guimaraes, who has signed a new 5-year contract for around £100K/week.

Something from the Sheffield United web page after the game:

This was Sheffield United’s largest-ever defeat in their league history in their 4,988th league game.

It is the first time that the Blades have conceded eight goals in a league game since their 10-3 defeat by Middlesbrough in November 1933.

It must be very difficult to take for the loyal Blades’ fans.


Here is the Telemundo video of the goals and highlights.

Let’s hope Harvey Barnes is not badly injured.

    An all round woeful team. We spent so much but somehow the first 11 is barely improved.

    Very poor recruitment this summer and it’s showing.

    Sheffield United 1 Newcastle 0.

    Absolutely loving it! 😀

    Yes, going for a MOM in such a display is sooo impossible.

    Dan, if you’re reading, you got my vote mate. Attacking, defending, crossing beautifully, scoring!

    But, a ten to all, including the subs.

    Magnificent! Every Newcastle player on the pitch today was a titan. Livramento and Hall had limited time to settle into the game but neither put a foot wrong.
    The whole game was a breathtaking watch.

    P.S….Wonder where we’ll be on Match of the Day?

    From earlier.
    I’ve never played football at any level.
    My school was all rugby, cricket and long distance running.
    Not good at any of that lot, although I appreciate watching top players.
    I was a good squash and fives player.
    But I’ve always loved watching football, especially games with an electric atmosphere.
    At boarding school we couldn’t go to games so I was brought up listening to Peter Jones on a Saturday on radio 2.
    Love matches on the radio.
    I’m going to stick a radio in my coffin!

    Is anyone disappointed we didn’t match the record?
    I think it was there for the taking, but we can’t be too greedy.
    We showed real purpose and intent with some excellent forward balls. The team was fluent today but Sheffield did make it easy for us. The win and performance will be excellent for confidence. Just hope Barnes isn’t crocked as we need all our players available.

    Graleat odd ‘big’ win, still feel we can play far better.

    Glad to see Ed back on the blog articles.

    But 8 different goal scorers is magic and its brought a healthy boost to our goal difference.

    Good to see the young defenders on the pitch.

    Trippier 3 assists. 3 headed set play goals (super rare for nufc). And a barn stormer of good play from Gordon (well done lad) and a selection of proper tidy finishes.

    A good day indeed 😎

    Excellent peroromance by the team today, to a man they all stuck by the tasks given and carried the out till the end. Relentless.

    I suspect this will have been our easiest game of the season. There has been so much talk of “playing through the lines” in the season to date. At times Sheffield Utd didn’t appear to have have any particular lines, and had no real leaders on the pitch. There is a vague possibility that Neil Warnock’s possible retirement from football is put on hold. Heckingbottom will almost certainly take the rap for this, though if the truth be told, their player need to look at themsleves.

    Enough of that. It was our day, and it will have done our confidence the world of good. Upwards and onwards !

    That was fun, and 3 points and to a good degree counterbalances the Liverpool disaster, which I think really took the wind out of our sails, but back to reality now, and a midweek cup tie against a far far better side. Sheffield United were plain awful. So far beneath EPL standard, you can’t imagine their manager surviving.

    I reckon that Barnes has to be either calf or Achilles, going from the standing stretches he appeared to do before leaving the field (standing on tip toes). Hope it isn’t to serious. He seems to be OK’ish… i.e. not hobbling too much when walking off.

    Wonderful to see Dr. Ed with a fresh post. That rounds off a perfect day.

    As for MOTM I am torn between Gordon and Trips. Several excellent performances today though.

    Of course we need to accept that Sheff Utd gave up somewhere between 2-0 and 3-0 but we made them give up.

    In previous games they gave Citeh and Spurs a run for their money so lets not forget that.

    I was well aware of your -4 from transfers. I am a bit drunk now so struggling to work it all out but here is what I can make out:

    You: 77 – 4 = 73 pts (but you have Botman and Son in TotW)

    Me: 73 pts (but I have Mitoma and Saka in TotW)

    I suspect it is a draw but I could be wrong. No matter the result good game that, not as good as NUFC’s game though!!

    ” Newcastle matched their record Premier League win with a scintillating display as they embarrassed winless Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

    Any fears of a European hangover following their Champions League exertions on Tuesday soon vanished as Eddie Howe’s side cruised to victory with eight different players getting on the scoresheet.

    Sean Longstaff put the visitors in front on 21 minutes as he swept in from Anthony Gordon’s cutback with the Blades’ appeals for a handball and claims the ball went out of play in the build-up dismissed.

    Paul Heckingbottom’s hosts had started brightly but found themselves three down before half-time after a further two goals in four minutes for Newcastle.

    Both came from Kieran Trippier set-pieces with Dan Burn stooping to nod in a corner at the back post before Sven Botman scored his first Newcastle goal with a well-directed header from a wide free-kick.

    Callum Wilson missed a number of presentable opportunities before the break but got his goal 10 minutes into the second half, heading in from close range following another pinpoint cross from Trippier.

    With Newcastle seemingly able to carve through the Blades at will, it was the irrepressible Gordon who added the fifth.

    The former Everton winger cut in from the left and effortlessly curled the ball into the far corner past Wes Foderingham in the Sheffield United goal.

    Miguel Almiron slotted in number six and Bruno Guimaraes made it seven with 17 minutes still remaining against an increasingly despondent home side.

    That was plenty of time for substitute Alexander Isak to pounce on another defensive error, turn his man and calmly finish to make it 8-0, the same score by which Newcastle beat Sheffield Wednesday in 1999.

    The result is also Sheffield United’s record league defeat.
