Brace From The Brilliant Bruno Guimaraes Gets Newcastle 3-2 Win

An outstanding performance today from Bruno Guimaraes with two great goals was good enough to get Newcastle a hard-fought win against Nottingham Forest by a score of 3-2, with the winner coming in the second half from the Brazilian.

We played well but again we looked shaky in defense – that’s 6 goals conceded in the last two games, and Dan Burn again had difficulties with the pace of his winger – this time Elanga.

Newcastle went ahead twice in the first half with goals from Guimeraeas but both times we conceded and at the half, it was 2-2.

But Guimaraes got a great winner after 66 minutes and we got all 3 points.

Our first goal came after 10 minutes from a set piece, this time a corner, when Trippier was given a short ball and centered it to the back post and Bruno volleyed the ball home.

Forest’s equalizer came after 25 minutes on the break and a terrific through ball from Gibbs-White saw Elanga whip past the slow-moving Burn to put the ball home under the body of goalkeeper Dubravka.

It again showed that Burn at left back is a weakness in our defense however good he is at set players at both ends of the pitch.

Newcastle went 2-1 up 43 minutes with yet another goal from center-back Fabian Schar aa Sven Botman headed the ball to him across the goal and the Swiss Intenrational half-volleyed home in style.

But we couldn’t keep the lead before half time and Forrest equalized and we were a little unlucky as a shot from distance from Hudson-Odoi hit Miley and deflected past Dubravka.

2-2 at halftime and a close game.

But Newcastle went ahead with a great goal from Bruno Guimaraes, when after 66 minutes the Brazilian hit the ball low and hard from the edge of the box and Newcastle fans went wild.

Bruno celebrated with the crowd at the away end.

And Newcastle did well after that in containing the opposition and managing the game as Eddie Howe brought on Harvey Barnes and Tino Livramento and we got all 3 points – which we really needed.

We are now on 36 points from 24 games and currently in 7th position.

A great result and a decent performance but what has happened to our once bullet-proof defense?

    A good win where we did enough.
    Not read any of comments during game but to my mind the same problems still exist.
    No idea how Dan keeps Toni out the team.
    The midfield give the defence poor cover. We miss big Joe big time regardless what fans say about Longy and Miley.
    Miggy looks like he is off this summer and Wilson needs setting up for shots because he cannot link play or hold the ball up.
    Going forward we looked ok but defensively there is room for a big improvement but I don’t think that’s coming until Joe and Willock come back.
