UEFA Cup - 1st Round 2nd Leg
NAC (Netherlands) vs Newcastle United (England)
I was going to ask about this.
For a while now, NUFC.com has been saying that there will be no live broadcast of this match, and I just assumed that the goltv coverage was going to be replaced by the Liverpool match. But now nufc.com is saying that the match will be shown in its entirety on Friday morning, and that makes me think that this match will be shown on goltv after all.
Anyone know for sure?
I'd love to watch this on Wednesday.
There's a place in Indy that carries GolTV?
Yes, my house.
I just tuned in, and it looks like Goltv is showing the Vardar-Roma match right now.
I just checked soccernet. Looks like I should have checked there before! Their schedule is the exact opposite of goltv's schedule. Goltv says they are showing Newcastle right now (12), and will be showing Roma next (at 2). But according to soccernet, the Roma match started at 12, and the Newcastle one doesn't start until 2.
Okay, I just checked soccertv.com, and now it says the Roma match will be on goltv at 12, and the Newcastle one will be on at 2. We'll see.
Viana almost made it 1-0 in the first minute.
Newcastle in their new silver kit.
NAC have been going forward with vigor, and it looks like Ameobi will have quite a few chances to counterattack.
And as I type that, Ameobi has a dangerous counterattack that was barely stopped by Breda.
Harper in goal.
Ameobi up front.
Viana, Dyer, Solano, Robert, Jenas.
Griffin, O'Brien, Bramble, Bernard.
Robert and Ameobi have both suffered multiple fouls. The midfield looks strong and capable on the ball, especially Dyer.
Solano sent a dangerous cross into the box. Keeper went down, and Bramble stepped on his hand.
Looks like Breda will have to bring in their backup goalie.
As the new goalkeeper comes in, its the 37th minute.
Newcastle have had the majority of possession for the past 15 minutes, thanks to a strong midfield and a steady defense.
Robert almost chipped the keeper 5 seconds after play finally restarted, but it went over by mere inches.
A great header from Breda, and Harper responds with the save of the match.
0-0 at the half.
A proper scoreline for what we've seen so far.
There have been a few decent chances from both sides, but nothing to truly separate them.
4 shots for each team. Breda with a slight edge in fouls, 8-6. But I don't foresee any lockerroom brawls forthcoming. Ameobi with 2 offsides. Best of all, no cards.
So long as there are no Toon injuries or cards, this match should bee seen as a positive result, regardless of the scoreline.
Most of the Breda players don't seem to be playing for a 5-0 miracle comeback. I suspect most of them would be happy with a 1-0 victory for the home fans.
Newcastle seems more than happy to show off their passing skills, and are in no great hurry to run up the scoreline, though at times they seem to be more than able to.
If I had to pick a Toon player of the half, it would be the man wearing the captains armband, Dyer. He had a few dangerous full field dribbles, and looked steady.
2nd half underway.
Defensive lapse in the first minute forces Harper to come out of his box. Harper STAYS OUT OF HIS BOX while other NUFC player dribbles ball in box, and finally passes it TO HARPER , still outside of his box!!
Quit fooling around, guys.
Slot gets a yellow for Breda
Later, Breda quickly yake a freekick, catching NUFC unawares. A wideopen cross into the box, but it just barely goes untouched. Breda should have done better with that.
Nice work Cleazer.
Aside from the shot to open the match, any contribution from Viana?
Dyer gets his shirt tugged while dribbling, and instead of continuing, decides to stop and turn around and complain to the refereee, despite there being no whistle.
Referee gives in, and listens to Dyers complaints and gives a yellow to Breda's Stam. Go Figure.
I'm afraid it may finish that way.
Bramble picks up a yellow extremely far out. Nearly at midfield. Shouldn't have done that. Hopefully won't haunt us in later rounds.
Breda seems unable to seriously challenge the Toon defense. They use their 2 remaining substitutions.
78th minute, and Sir Bobby pulls a double switch of his own
Steven Caldwell and Darren Ambrose come on for Bramble and Solano.
Dyer and Ameobi have tried to team up for a goal twice in the past few minutes, but were stopped both times by the goallie.
Viana almost reaches a breakaway, but the keeper once again wins the ball.
Breda with a 3v2, but they pass it straight to one of the 2 Toon defenders.
Looks like the match might open up for the final 10 minutes.
LuaLua on for Dyer.
LuaLua does a good job of keeping possession and dribbles past midfield. He finds Jenas streaking down the middle. Jenas runs down the pitch and slots it perfectly to Robert, who is 1 v the keeper.
Robert makes it look easy.
