Discussion in 'Newcastle United' started by CrewToon, Oct 21, 2003.
Match is this afternoon (evening in the UK).
Give me some pre-game predictions friends!
I think Shearer will have a goal, I think Ameobi will have a goal, and I think one of our defenders is going to sneak in for a goal.
There is some type of delay going on at Fulham....the Newcastle World guys said something to the effect of a security breach/issue. 30 minutes is the determined delay at the moment.
Starting 11 for the Boys in Black
They gave an injury update on Dyer but I missed the extent of the conversation...and of course Bellamy will be out for a little while just having had Knee surgery last night.
the game has been put off for another 20 minutes because of this security threat...Apparently there is a suspicious car parked near the stadium and they have closed off all transportation in the area investigating.
Game is finally underway....thank goodness nothing happened!
Wow..we are about 2 minutes in and Magpies are down 2-0 already!!!!
Clark in the 5th minute
Saha in the 7th minute
LAURENT ROBERT SET UP BY ALAN SHEARER!!!
Not a lot happening with 7 minutes left in the half. Bowyer is getting a lot of touches that is about as much as I'm gathering from the audio.
penalty kick.....shola was fouled in the box
Trackman, what service are you listening to the audio through??
SHEARER! SHEARER! SHEARER! SHEARER! SHEARER!
The lads are really impressive in this second half..they are controlling the tempo of the game with domination of posession.
I pay for the Newcastle world package....gives me live audio of everygame.
Its a final
(Robert, Shearer, Shearer)
WE ARE NOW IN THE TOP HALF OF THE TABLE......"THE SLEEPING GIANT HAS AWAKENED...WATCH OUT ENGLAND"
What a great performance from Big Al...I'm glad we managed to hang on for all 3 points. It makes me burst into song, "Same old Shearer, Always scoring" hehe.
damn! another stunning performance.
Not only did Robert come through, but three goals came from Geordies.
Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years! (LL Cool J for those who don't know.) Shearer is the man! Thanks for the udpates, Trackman20.
No worries mate.....what else would a college boy be doing on a tuesday afternoon....attending classes? I THINK NOT! haha....Its a glorious time to be on the Magpie Wagon...as I feel things are looking sky high for the fellows!
The only bad news to report is Bellamy being gone until February, but I have to admit, other than Bellamy's performance against NAC Breda (1st Leg) he hasn't been too effective for us. On the other hand you have a young fellow in Shola Ameobi who is going to get the opportunity of a lifetime by stepping on the field just about everynight for the next four months to show his worth to the club. He has been affective the past two matches and I look for his confidence to only go higher. This Bellamy incident could have a VERY THICK candy coat to it! Shearer will be out in two seasons....We will be left with a duo of Craig Bellamy and Shola Ameobi (assuming we don't spend big bucks on someone else).....and call me crazy...but I have EXTREME confidence in Ameobi becoming quite the player for the Magpies! I'm excited about our future gentlemen!
Once we start beating sides like Fulham 3-0, then I'll be feeling sky-high, but until that time, I won't be that excited just yet.
Well you have more confidence than I do in Shola. He's had quite a few chances to show his potential and only in the last few matches against lower EPL teams has he shown much. I know there's been a lot of hype over him, but we'll see if he can perform consistently. Shola has been touted as a really exciting prospect up front and really, he has failed to deliver.
I don't mean to sound negative about our situation overall, but we still have some things to work out.
Don't call it a comeback
I been here for years
Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear
Makin the tears rain down like a MON-soon
Listen to the bass go BOOM
Over the competition, I'm towerin
Wreckin shop, when I drop these lyrics that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you betta move
Don't ever compare
Me to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin the price
I'm gonna knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Mama said knock you out (HUUUH!!!)
Don't u call this a regular jam
I'm gonna rock this land
I'm gonna take this itty bitty world by storm
And I'm just gettin warm
Just like Muhummad Ali they called him Cassius
Watch me bash this beat like a skull
Cuz u know I had beef wit
Why do u riff with me, the maniac psycho
And when I pull out my jammy get ready cuz it might go
BLAAAAW, how ya like me now?
The river will not allow
U to get with, Mr. Smith, dont riff
Listen to my gear shift
I'm blastin, outlastin
Kinda like Shaft, so u could say I'm shaftin
Old English filled my mind
And I came up with a funky rhyme
Shadow boxin when I heard you on the radio (HUUUH!!!)
I just don't know
What made you forget that I was raw?
But now I got a new tour
I'm goin insane, startin the hurricane, releasin pain
Lettin you know that you can't gain, I maintain
Unless ya say my name
Diggin and drillin a hole
Pass the Ol' Gold
Shotgun blasts are heard
When I rip and kill, at WILL
The man of the hour, tower of power, I'll devour
I'm gonna tie you up and let you understand
that I'm not your average man
when I got a jammy in my hand
Listen to the way I slaaaaay, your crew
Damage (UHH) damage (UHH) damage (UHH) damage
Destruction, terror, and mayhem
Pass me a sissy so suckas I'll slay him
Farmers (What!!!) Farmers (What!!!)
I'm ready (we're ready!!!)
I think I'm gonna bomb a town (get down!!)
Don't u neva, eva, pull my lever
Cuz I explode
And my nine is easy to load
I gotta thank God
Cuz he gave me the strength to rock
HARD!! knock you out, mama said knock you out
Leaving aside the first 10 minutes, that was a fantastic performance last night.
Apart from Aaron Hughes, who had a shaky evening and lost the ball to Fulham several times, including for the first goal, and Titus' normal quota of ludicrous errors which we survived, the whole team played well.
Shearer was outstanding, however. It was a brilliant exhibition of centre-forward play.
Even when 2 goals down in the first 7 minutes, the team clearly believed that they were going to win the game. As soon as Robert pulled a goal back there was no real doubt who the winners were going to be.
In the second half, apart from a flurry in the last ten minutes (in particular Shay saving with his feet from Legwinski) the Toon dominated and really played well enough to have scored more goals.
A mention to the supporters as well. At 2 goals down the support didn't falter and was into overdrive in the second half.
All in all a great night. Not only 3 points, but the boost of coming back from a two goal deficit and winning. Our team's confidence should be high now and ought to carry us to wins against Pompey and the Villa.
Forget motormouth joining Shola.
if Amoebi pans out, he will be joined by Chops in the front two.
