Newcastle 2-1 Birmingham – Video highlights.

I’ve just got hold of some highights of the game against Birmingham earlier. The win makes us mathematically safe so fill your boots and enjoy!



Shola Ameobi gave us the lead from the penalty spot after a handball from Liam Ridgewell – a handball that ultimately saw the Blues defender see red as it was deemed as being deliberate. It looks pretty deliberate to me anyway!

Staven Taylor made it two before some comical defending allowed Lee Bowyer to pull one back just before the half-time whistle.

For the statto’s out there we had 63% of the possession, 17 shots on goal, 10 of which were on target. It wasn’t pretty at times, but it’s three points all the same.

I’ll take that everytime to be honest!

  1. I saw the defining moment today to convince me Ranger is not a striker.

    He ran with the ball into the box and was a yard ahead of the defender. Supermac would have wellied the ball towards goal without doubt.
    Ranger hesitated and stopped before holding the ball up and passing . Chance gone!

  2. I heard the game was very poor, but on that little show reel they should have been battered. Gutted as regards Chiek 15 yellows. But with out a doubt Id rather take him missing the odd few games rather than change his game and not be as effective.

  3. He’s on 14 at the minute. One more and he is done for three games ๐Ÿ˜•

    If that is the case he’ll have missed nin games through suspension ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ˜•

  4. BS9 confidence is something this lad has everywhere except the pitch. Needs to aquire some before we say too much

  5. Sorry toonsy thought he’d reached the 15. Maybe forget him for chelsea and then the last game against WBA for 60 mins if he aint been carded.

  6. I just think we should play him if we are trying for top ten. I’m basing that on the hope that we’ll sign someone who can deputise for tiote.

    Hmm ๐Ÿ˜•

    I think he’s too thick to lack confidence on the pitch. He thought Lovenkraands was Scottish and was totally dumbfounded when he saw him talking Danish to Bendtner before the Arsenal game.
    He’s shared a dressing room with him for 18 months.

  8. You can argue even 10 yellow cards is just getting used to the new style of play in this league, but 15 yellow cards is a sign of being dumb or a yob.

    Let’s not forget he did in Elano at the World Cup too, I think he broke his foot or something. I am fearing Tiote may be one of those players who starts off great and slowly just drops off into being rather crap.

    He only signed on the day we beat Villa 6-0, so if he had played the first few games of the season, he would have absolutely hit 15 yellow cards too.

    Pardew really needs to sort him out over the summer or get someone to rotate him with.

  9. Another stupid yellow again. Fannied about with the ball then a shocking touch meaning he had to lunge into a tackle. The boy is class but how many times has he got silly cards as a result of his over playing the ball when their is an easy option.
    First post i have read today so dont know if its been mentioned but the laughter as Nolan got man of the match today tells a tale about the Screech app. Only Kevs lass must of had a signal!!
    Just like to give Saylor a bit of praise today thought he had a good game and up yours to the lads i had an arguement on the concourse with. Told you he would net today ha!

  10. FJ- He’s not crap at alll! no matter how many cards he gets he still makes us tick, he’s got to tone it down a bit but we just somebody who can deputise when he’s suspended.

    To say he’s rather crap is focking stupid.

  11. You clearly cannot read. I said I fear he may do that, I never said he was crap at all. Those collections of letters together are words, feel free to interpret them some time.

    Also, I don’t consider it a great team contribution when you need to sign someone purely to cover the fact he is gonna miss 20% of the season because he can’t tackle.

    Tiote isn’t beyond criticism, lol. He’s moving into Enrique circa 2010 level of divine blessings with fans. Have there not been a few cases where he has farted about and gave the ball away and either a goal came of it or he gets booked?

    For such a big head, his brain seems miniscule.

  12. no need to tone it down. its the fannying about that has A) got him yellows and B) cost us points.

    and for wot dofference it makes I dont see anything in Ranger to make me think he is a top flight player. Bang him out with Clarkey at Hudd next season and see if he can improve in a town with no nightlife.

  13. you’ve been slagging him off today, when he holds our midfield together.
    If he didn’t have to cover for Nolan 24/7 he wouldn’t have to take silly yellows for the benefit of the team

  14. I have been slagging him off today, but I have also posted “The Legend of Tiote” previously too. On his day, Tiote is outstanding and funnily enough, those days often co-incide with the games he doesn’t get booked.

    He has the potential to be the best midfielder enforcer in the whole country, but I fear he sometimes gets too complacent or arrogant and lets his recent hype go to his enormous head.

    That’s what I mean about Pardew sorting him out. His aggressive play isn’t why he gets booked, his mistakes and lack of concentration are 90% of the reason he has to lunge in the first place.

    You sort that out and you have the perfect defensive midfielder. I am no Tiote hater, just get frustrated at how close to incredible he is but he seems to be reverted into generic yob 101.

  15. Toonsy can I make a request that when someone puts a new thread up they leave a quick post on the thread before it, as I normally just refresh my page which takes me back to the bottom of the page, so I dont see that a new thread is up ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. Greetings Bobbz and I think you’ll agree that the difference between SuperMac and Ranger is that of self confidence. Remember SM’s home debut?

    Our scouse friends will I’m sure!!!

      (Quote)

  30. And, SuperMac didn’t have the fans รณn his back. He was uninhibited and therefore not apprehensive!

    Why don’t we encourage our players – singularly and collectively?!

  31. Dear Sebastian Larsson:

    We at the great Newcastle United Football Club would like to thank you for your part in today’s win. We know that you are top quality, and have already impressed manager Alan Pardew enough to guarantee your transfer to our great football club when your contract has run down in the summer, so we appreciate how you spared us from feeling the sting of your beautiful balls slapping us in the arse as you curl home another pinpoint cross.

    From bang on accurate sources like the Guardian and News of the World, we have extrapolated rumors of your potential transfer to determine that you are certainly playing for the Newcastle football club next year. Finally you will be able to make the ultimate transfer – from our nighttime fantasies to our drive to penetrate the Champions League places, where the great Newcastle club belongs.

    While you may have worried that your pitiful performance today may have been too convincing, considering your embarrassing goal line clearance, complete fluff of a chance over the bar from about 2 yards out, or pathetic challenges of Jonas that made the Argentinian look like the player Maradona has always known him to be — take comfort as you lay your pretty head down to rest that your adoring fans, including the ones in America who have your pictures plastered all over their IBM cubicle, still await with baited breath for your arrival at the bright lights of St. James’s Park. After all, let some of the other boys do the dirty work on the pitch, when you’re at the great Newcastle football club you can do to us as you please! Please?!?

    Love,
    Ed Harrison
