Newcastle United 3-1 Blackburn Rovers

Recommended Posts

This is enjoyable.

:nufc:

 

I'd like another. Mostly because Blackburn are such a nothing club and they should be reminded at every opportunity.

great game wish we'd pushed for another though. Thought Obertan looked dangerous today , of course Ba did great put himself about and showed great quality in front of goal. Have to say I think Best looks a really good footballer, shows a nice touch, should have done better with his chances but I can see a lot of goals coming from him this season

Happy with this result, Got wolves next, then Spurs. Honeslty? We could very well get points from both of those games too.

If it had been Ba on the end of the HBA passes then could easily have been 5-1. Still, a good result. Need to pick up the results now before the harder games come up.

3 points, Ba hat-trick, HBA and Marveaux some time on the pitch. All in all a tidy day.

Pleased with Obertan's performance too. Another plus.

 

Definitely. Seems to be improving with each game, to be expect I suppose given how infrequently he played at Manure. Should do his confidence the world of good. Looks very fit, was still tearing up the pitch at full pace in the dying minutes after doing loads of running prior.

Best's finishing :nufc:

 

Don't think it's that lol-worthy tbh (as in I don't think it's that bad).

 

Definitely something to look at on the training pitch - he needs to know when to place it and when to go for power.

 

Is the strike still on in the NFL? Best could have a good career as a kicker.

 

When to place it and when to go for power... hmm, well everytime he hit it it went about 15 yards over, so don't do that again Mr. Best. Good performance and Obertan had the best performance of his career. Thought Jonas was a bit off the pace today.

Great result. Never thought we'd be in this position after six games. The team are looking very good ATM and seem to been given a licence to attack a lot. Over seventeen attempts on goal.

Laughable would be a better way of putting it :nufc:

 

He played well today though, good contribution.

Brilliant result. A deserved win. :nufc:

Bah! 3 for him none for Best.

There's room for improvement which I think will come now that BenArfa's back and we'll soon have a left-back who may prove to be better than Enrique. I'm beginning to feel optomistic.

Overtan looked a lot better but he needs to improve his final touches.

Tiote was much better today despite giving the ball away.

Marveaux for Jonas.

 

Permanently!

 

Jonas played his part out there, is always going to be more help in defense with Raylor at left back. Unfortunately for that same reason Jonas had to go exploring on the right to get more involved. Had a great link up with HBA which is what I think Jonas is best suited to - quick sharp runs, passes and movement.

 

When Santon is available, we should have some more solidity at left back so Marveaux could get some more time on the pitch.
