    have I bored you all previously with my tales of going up to Georgdie land and watching Stan Lazaridis score a screamer against the Toon?

    okay, I'll not mention it again...

    so, a right relation 6 pointer is upon us....

    Somehow the Toon have pulled their shit together and managed a run of victories while we've become mired in the doldrums...

    Looks like a bright start from both sides with 4:52 on the clock...

    if only we'd been as 'at 'em' against Man City last week, we might have stood a chance.

    Snoddy starts this time, as does Cresswell...

    fupping hell... looks like Noble is back as well...

    Corner to Newcastle...

    So here's the team...

    1 Fabianski
    5 Zabaleta
    4 Balbuena
    23 Diop
    3 Cresswell
    11 Snodgrass
    16 Noble
    41 Rice
    8 Felipe Anderson
    17 Hernandez
    7 Arnautovic

    Substitutes
    9 Carroll
    13 Adrian
    14 Obiang
    19 Wilshere
    21 Ogbonna
    26 Masuaku
    27 Lucas Perez

    so you can see the gaffer has made a bunch of changes from last week's capitulation...

    and as I type this... it bloody well pays off.

    Great cross from Snodgrass on the right.... into Henrandez just four yards out... unmarked and toe pokes the ball around the sprawling keeper...

    So... two changes from last week combine for a goal on 13 minutes....

    At least the protesting georgies will have gotten into the ground in time to see it.

    and then Newcastle try the same move... but they're flagged offside...

    ten minutes gone since we scored... nothing to really write home about.

    Another Newcastle free kick and they get a clean header on goal but play it directly at Fabianski who catches easily...

    Anderson is having a very quiet game

    Arnie hasn't made much of an impact - is he still a bit crocked


    Noble is hi usual self... i.e. pointless and a midfield passenger... but if you happen to like him then you'll be praising him for having turned the team round from last week and giving us the edge...

    another free header for the Toon fortunately sails over the bar... if they could get their balls on target, Newcastle would be out of sight...

    we need to pressure more and put a hold on this game...

    allowing the Georgies too much time, space and possession...

    and so we put on a bit of pressure...

    Anderson gets the ball and charges downfield for a 3 on 3....

    plays the ball in to Arnie who just clips his pass against a Newcastle defender and they get it clear...

    Newcastle get a 1 on 1 but their player nutmegs Diop but in doing so plays the ball so wide it's no danger...


    literally a tale of two cities...

    4 minutes to the end of half time... wonder what money you'd get on Carroll making an appearance?

    a perfectly practiced WHUFC free kick goes absolutely nowhere

    we need to hold onto the whistle... conceding now would really shift the momentum.

    Zabaleta goes in the book for a really pointless foul... but is first to the ball as the kick comes in

    Great defending by Zabaleta saves an almost certain goal and the whistle goes to send us in for oranges and a cuppa with our goal lead still intact...

    I'm thankful for the online access and coverage of games... but the piss poor half time video packages are just the worst... and now we're just sitting watching ball boys knocking the ball about and a montage of miserable Grade faces...

    oh hello... here comes the teams...

    lot of Newcastle pressure in the first ten minutes of the 2nd half...

    Cresswell gets injured and is replaced by Masuaku...

    Great little flick over the top by Noble to Arnie, who plays Chicharito in but the ball falls just behind him and a great opportunity goes begging...

    and now Anderson plays Chcharito in but he hits the side netting from 7 yards out....

    guess he really does have to be inside the 6 yard box to actually score...

    and there you have it.... plenty of Newcastle pressure that keeps us alive only because they can't finish...

    then a flick on from midfield (Snoddy I think) Arnie heads to chicharito who finds himself free and clear to run in on goal and from way, way outside the 6 yard box... he slide rules (ask your grandparents) a shot into the bottom corner of the net...

    2-0 to the Cockey boys....

    some more quick passing slices open the Newcastle defense but Anderson drives his shot at the keeper...

    why do we not play like this all the time?

    pressure and quick passing always pays dividends for us...

    sitting back and hoping to hit on the break rarely does...

    this week and last week are chalk and cheese

    Arnie comes off and Obiang replaces him

    Arnie's looks keen but not at 100% so it makes perfect sense to give him some rest... we need him fully fit - he's too important to us.

    The Toon look rattled but they're not giving up.

    We're now only 23 points off top of the table...

    free kick to Newcastle right on the 'd'

    Shelvey balloons it over...

    Newcastle would really be a threat if they could shoot accurately - but all the barn doors in Georgieland are safe once again...
