Interesting Bournemouth fans comments after beating Newcastle
There were 1,600 Bournemouth fans who made the trek to Tyneside and braved the 14 flights of stairs up to the away end.
Along with the Newcastle fans they saw a real game of two halves.
Newcastle could and should have gone ahead in the first half, only for things to fall apart after the break.
So how did the Bournemouth fans see the game overall?
Fair to say some of them weren’t too impressed by Newcastle…
Bournemouth fans comment via their top Vital Football message board:
‘Seen one of the relegated teams today and it is not Bournemouth. Newcastle were awful.’
‘We’ve taken points off Leicester, Brighton and Newcastle, who all looked absolutely atrocious, and all three are above us. Hopefully not for much longer.’
‘Took a battering in the first half but much better in the second and probably just deserved to win.’
‘It’s a great win today and last 20 minutes we were good, very good, but that shouldn’t mask some poor performances from some players.
Newcastle were there for a pasting to be honest and I can’t believe they were 9th before the game.’
‘Just going out for a meal….in Newcastle, think I’m going to enjoy the night.’
‘I am going to get absolutely hammered this evening.’
‘Great win, their offside goal was dubious, could have gone either way.
We grew into the game and on reflection I think both teams thought they could and should have won.
These are the games that we need to get points from and will define our season. We can’t go on much longer without a confidence boost or we really will be out of touch of safety.
We are now out of relegation and the fixtures in front of us look favourable. We are on our way!’
‘If Newcastle weren’t so rubbish Francis would have cost us another match with a bone headed mistake, and was torn apart by Atsu ALL GAME.’
‘Midfield was all over the shop today. The defence and the front two did their jobs. But in midfield Newcastle bettered us no problem.
Thankfully football is won and lost in the penalty areas, and we did well there.’
‘We won because they stuck together as a team and it came good.’
‘Just calmed down. What a strange game. We made so many individual errors in the game. Under no pressure. Midfield just seemed nowhere. For an hour it was like 2 mini teams. Some blokes at the back defending and some blokes attacking with nothing in-between. I thought Arter began to take control a little in the second half. We looked better when Smith replaced ibe. Wilson and king looked good.
Love that we went for it last 5 or 10 minutes. Belief starting to show. Cook scores then prevents a goal by pushing their bloke over.’
‘I really like Matt Ritchie but I just wanted him to see we are doing ok!’
‘Make no mistake about it, Newcastle are shocking. Absolutely embarrassing first half on reflection. Such an important result.’
‘Sadly some of our fans chose to boo Ritchie…….Johnny Bandwaggon’s probably.’
‘Crawled up those 14 flights of stairs, but pretty sure I floated back down them.’
‘Arter and Surman both well off the pace in the first half. Surman ran the show after the break, while Shelvey and Ritchie went missing for Newcastle.’
‘I would have Ritchie back. He did fade yesterday but the whole Newcastle team lost their way after a bright start.’
