Newcastle beat Burnley TWICE in Portugal as seven Mags get on the scoresheet

After setting off for a six-day camp in Portugal on Friday afternoon, Newcastle took on Burnley in a series of short behind closed doors training games earlier today.

The club reveal that ‘two evenly split’ Newcastle teams played against ‘experienced and youthful Clarets sides’ before switching opposition after 45 minutes.

Game one saw us beat a young Burnley side 4-1 over the opening half, with goals coming from Joe Willock (2), Elliot Anderson and Miguel Almirón.

In the second 45, Miguel Almiron scored again against a stronger Burnley line-up, with Callum Wilson also finding the net in a 2-1 win over the final 45.

Elsewhere, a separate Newcastle XI – captained by Dan Burn – won their opening half 1-0 against an ‘experienced Burnley side’ thanks to a goal from Allan Saint-Maximin.

In the second half of this game, Matt Ritchie and Jacob Murphy then scored against a ‘younger-looking’ Clarets XI, giving us a clean sweep of wins ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Benfica.

Game One (4-1 and 2-1):
XI: Pope, Krafth, Botman, Burn, Bondswell, Shelvey, Joelinton, Guimarães, Ritchie, J.Murphy, Saint-Maximin.

Game two (1-0 and 2-0):
XI: Darlow, Targett, Dummett, Lascelles, Trippier, S.Longstaff, Anderson, Willock, Fraser, Wilson, Almirón.

M.Longstaff (on for Anderson)
Turner-Cooke (unused)
Muñoz (on for Almirón)
A.Murphy (unused)

This was our fourth pre-season game of the summer, with us securing wins over Gateshead (5-1) and 1860 Munich (3-0) before losing 1-0 to Mainz 05 earlier this week in Austria.

  1. Jesus just watching bbc news report on the living conditions of disabled kids and adults in institutions in Ukraine. Heartbreaking scenes, skin and bones most of them and left in large cots rocking and self harming or just staring blankly into space. I know that so many of them could of done so much better with the right care, and it predates the war too . Been going on for 30 years since their independence.
    I can’t unsee those images now. :-c


  2. gan on you non-PNev girls!!!

    Just watched a bit of news where they said a congressman over here voted against same sex marriage a week after he attended his own son’s same sex marriage.

    I worked in a small office for 5 years with someone who I consider a good friend. 5 people in the office. There was no way Chip could ever be straight. He was born into it. It is the way he is.


  3. I have thought about this for like 40 years. I am in my 50s. I am not that way but some people are that way. Do I care? Not really. That is who they are.


  4. I only bring this up because a politician went to his son’s same sex marriage and then voted against same sex marriage. Is that the definition of a hypocrite?

    I am going to say it again. I don’t really care what people do in the privacy of their own homes and with people they love.
