Game on! Newcastle v Arsenal.

Tiote's back to add soem bite to our midfield.
St. James’ Park is ready to see some football again, and it’s Arsenal who provide the entertainment this weekend.

The mood around the place has been subdued to say the least and it will be interesting to see what kind of reaction there is from the Toon Army after what has been a tough and emotional week.

Arsenal come to town with a title challenge in progress, and they are currently 19 points and 25 goals better off on goal difference than the hosts. In one-off games though it doesn’t matter and on the 7th of November, one goal was all The Mags needed to get the better of The Gunners in their own back yard.

Today, with the support of 50,000 Geordies, we have absolutely nothing to lose, and that makes us dangerous. This squad has proved resilient this season, and after the flat performance on Wednesday night in London, previous results would suggest that the lads will be geared up for this game.

  2. So true Geordie Deb, its all about the football, looked like turning for the worst now has gotta be a result for the best.

    Get Enrique and Barton signed up while they are still on a high. Fantastic, fantastic. 😀

  3. I am honestly heartened by that. No doubt some of the nay-sayers will point to the fact that we shouldn’t have been 4 down, but to come back from that was fantastic. A piece of history in fact.

  4. Deb that is one off the best 2nd halfs I have seen us play and against the Arse makes it so much sweeter.
    Wait till ye hear Whinging Wenger making all the excuses in the world

  5. Right, i have no problem with admitting i was a complete tool. I’ll hold my hands up now and apologise to the lads. I turned off at 3-0, said it could get beyond embarrassing and that the game was over.

    Never would I have expected a comeback like that. That is the first time a team has EVER let a 4 goal lead slip in the Prem.

    They’ve outdone themselves today. I almost feel guilty celebrating considering how quickly i wrote us off, that’s what i deserve though.

    Well done to all involved and HWTFL. What an incredible comeback.

  6. We just need to carry on playing like that into our next matches, if we don’t wait till we go 4-0 down again then we’ll be fine 😀

  7. Cannot wait for Wenger’s winge after that one ! Should have been 5, Best had a perfectly good goal chalked off for offside..

  8. Loads of goals flying in all ower, WBA, Blackpool lost, Wigan won but after that i couldnt give a shit 😆 😯 😈 😀

  11. You could not dream this up.

    Let’s hope this does not go to DL’s head. He needs to remember how he felt at half time.

  12. Exactly what we needed. First half to set it up but the fightback and the team spiritt is there for all to see. Anyone in on a free to beef up the attack and we will be ok lads. We have 3 decent games to get things from now

  13. Agree Dave. My stream kept going down but what a second half. I just hope everyone get’s their neative heads off and responds to that. Noise in SJP fantastic and that will drive the lads on. Can’t wait for MOTD to see highlights. Look on Wenger’s face-priceless HWTL

  14. Well done lads, was thoroughly disheartened after that start but great comeback! Me mate who’s one of the unwashed from doon the road texted me after half an hour saying there must be a fire at SJP, all the fans are leaving in a hurry, I texted back saying (tongue in cheek) nah we’ll win 5-4…I was so bloody close to being right!!

      (Quote)

  15. Ross – Not to make you feel guilty or owt, but I was looking for streams at 4-0 down still 😉

    Never ever thought I would see that though 😯

  18. NUFC should have been 5-4 and win the game,if not of that goal that was mysteriously ruled offside when the Best is totally onside. 👿

  19. I know we have some fantastic results this season but all things considering this for me is the result of the season for me

  20. wow man that was a welcome ray of sunshine for toon fans everywhere. Everyone should be buzzing, and deserve it too after an absolutely shite week.

    Well done the lads for the never say die attitude, immense. I cannot wait for the match highlights, especially the Tiote volley which was a screamer by all accounts. I can imagine how the ground will have been absolutely jumping at the end.

    Howay !!!!

  21. LADS I GENUINELY THINK THAT WAS MY FAVUORITE GAME OF THE SEASON SO FAR, MORE THAN THE MACKEMS AND MORE THAN VILLA/WEST SPAM, IVE NEVER FELT ADRENALINE LIKE IT I FEELLL DOWN THE F*CKIN STAIRS CELEBRATING, CANT CALM DOWN F*CKIN HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Geordie Deb, we’ve always had a good nucleus, just so chuffed they responded after this week and the first half. Truly an unbelievable bunch of lads, and this will have gone along way to get them all back on side again and looking forward. So great. Football. Amazing. Newcastle. St. James’. Amazing.

  23. I wonder if Stu was one of the one’s who left early?

    That must be a weird feeling – being slightly gutted that your team had just pulled off the comeback of the millennium!! 😀

  24. There was a lot of doom n gloom before hand and the first half just made it worse. But all credit to pardew n the lads they went in and half time n turned it around. Listen to soccer saturday n thompson sayin when we got our first goal we were fightin to get the ball back. Tat is the spirit we need. Wat a result. Wat a game

      (Quote)

  25. Couldn’t believe some people were saying that it felt like the relegation season. 🙄

    Even at 4-0 in the first half you could see the lads were at least trying to do something. The relegation side would have thrown the towel in at 2-0, never mind 4.

    Kin HWTL – never been more proud to be a Geordie!!! 🙂

      (Quote)

  26. Whatever Pardew said at half time, bravo!

    If it was Alex Ferguson, eveyone would be raving about it. Pure character that second half was by the players, can’t remember the last time I saw St James’ rocking like that

  27. what the hell is going on? It’s 1-1 at Wolves already. Jesus Christ almighty… And to think I’m gonna miss MOTD tonight! My gf’s going to Nepal on Monday and it’s her last night out with everyone… I can’t duck out of this one…. can I?

  28. What was Tiote’s celebration like? He looks like he’s going to kill someone when he’s completly calm. A fired up Tiote having just scored an 88th min equaliser I can imagine looked canny intimidating as he ran for the crowd, i’d have been oot my seat..purely to run in the opposite direction, haha.

  29. OMG Bloody fantastic. Saw the whole game on FSC over here on tv in the States. Kept thinking I should just switch it off but just couldn’t stop watching, a bit like watching a train wreck in slowmo…..then they came out all guns blazing. Couldn’t believe it, fantastic. I was sure it was the wrong decision giving Best offside so we should have had 5!!!!! Looking forward to catching the after match interviews. Particularly Wenge! Ha Ha

  30. With that kind of fight, and the Geordie faithful fully behind them, we will never go down!
    We just took 4 points off the 2nd place team in the title race. Get in you beauties!

  31. To all the doom mongerers and relegation jockeys: what you witnessed this afternoon was grit and character… Something you should all try! Stop talking crap and have a little faith in our great club!

  32. Before kick off I’d have taken a “draw”
    After 26 minutes I’d have taken “cyanide”
    Now I’m going to take a bottle of “single malt”
