I’ve dug up some highlights of the 3-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers for us all to enjoy.
Sit back and enjoy Demba Ba opening his Newcastle United scoring account by tucking away a sublime hat-trick in what was a dominant performance from the home team.
Interview with Alan Pardew
Alan Pardew was suitably delighted with the win, and it seems that an overwhelming majority of people seem to share that view. Newcastle passed the ball well, retained possession and created chances throughout the match. In truth it could have been more than just the three goals for the home side
Interview with Steve Kean
Steve Kean seemed to see the match differently however. He claims that the third goal changed the game and that without it his team could have gone on to get something from the match. It’s an odd thing to say considering his team only mustered one shot on target all game supplemented by only three shots off target and with only 40% of the possession to show for it.
I don’t want to go into the match in too much detail because I have another one of my mega match review articles coming up, but suffice to say it was a well deserved win with some very good performances and some even better passing play thrown in for good measure. I’ll keep quiet on that for now, but make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that match review.
Howay the lads!
