Missed the game due to visiting family & as usual i miss a positive result!!! Maybe i better stop watching games, if it means Newcastle getting good results, i'll settle for MOTD :lol:

Looking forward to winding up all the Manx fans tomorrow :thumbs:

Looking at the penalty, I'm not at all sure. If it had been given against us I wouldn't have been happy

You know it's odd - every time we are around at my wife's brothers place for Sunday dinner or some get together Newcastle always get a positive result

Good results for Huddersfield and Swansea made it essential, mind. 13th place but still in deep s***. Here's hoping those January buys keep the momentum going.*

Chris Smalling is an absolute embarassment like, terrible with the ball at his feet, 6ft odd defender diving about, Gayle was outmuscling him half the time. Nee wonder England are s***. Wouldn't catch Tony Adams doing that.

Would you mind to go there more often?
I think we always win when I dont watch the game. So its bit harsh for the fan :)

I wish we played Jose every week.

Good result, unexpected but definitely deserved. The better team won and on reflection it was a good performance. Let's keep that going at home - there is NO REASON that this level of performance can't be the norm.

Shelvey, Diame, the CBs and Dubravka were all outstanding - the spine of the team needs to play that way all the time and to that standard and it will yield results.

Pleased for Ritchie - a lot of criticism on here for him but I am not sure why - he's pretty much the team's Gutierrez these days and does a good job. Gayle is doing well too - yes, not scoring, but leading the line well.

My final point would be that Manchester United never get penalties awarded against them, and that was a clear one. So ridiculous. The same applies for that Valencia kick on Atsu - clear red card. I hope that their fans can see that they get away with far more than any other team.

The confidence Dubravka brought to our defence was incredible. I have never seen any of them play as a unit as they did today. Shelvey had his best game ever for us and backed up by Diame. Ritchie did what Ritchie does. Score important goals. Gayle tried without much success and Perez went AWOL for most of the game. Kenedy is still learning his trade but will improve when he is 100% match fit.

good point about Ritchie. That was somehow only his first goal this season despite the quality finish, but his main quality has been defensive this year - the guy puts in a shift every game and we often are a worse side without him.

He did what all decent keepers do.. He organised and controled his defence.

I like this Dubravka fellow, have high hopes for him. Maybe he can be our next Given. We have gone too long without someone like Given or Srnicek under the bar.

I dont understand why the lads csnt put in a shift like this most weekends especislly at home. I thought the fans were quiet throughout. I would of thought with 50k plus we would of been alot louder. Its like highbury when the opposition has the ball.. Perez Kennedy and Gayle did struggle in the latter stages but they kept on making runs and trying to go forward. Thats all we want our team to try in each game.. Darlow is unlucky to now have to compete with the Slovakian. He was tremendous.

I celebrated like mad when the goal went in. It was an absolutely heroic, stupendous effort from the lads. 100% to all of them. It still gives me goosebumps now sitting in my local pub in Ipswich and Ritchie smashing the ball in the back of the net making it 1-0.

For all Ritchie hasn't contributed much of late still has 6 assists this season, 3 more than anyone else and as many as Firmino, Willian, Coutinho and Eriksen to name a few...

Precisely why no one should be on his back.
