  • Cockneytrev

    Team as whole did very well, massive gulf in class, but to be expected, back 4 and midfield worked their socks off, I give Dummet my MOM and I’m not his greatest fan,,
    Not really sure what people expect us to do? Majority of the team are championship quality,,,

    • Wor Lass

      Seems like a very fair comment, trev.

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Dummett was the man of the match by a mile but never thought I would say it Diame played well. Great goal by Murphy class

  • Ram Kishore

    Shelvey along with other Midfielders showed some class

    Manquillo was bad but can’t be blamed though as the opponent’s winger Sane was exceptional

    • Whickhamrobbie

      Shelvey was the worst player on the pitch ,what were you watching ? or are you being ironic ? Shelvey a 4 Josolu deserved more 6 for me but the rest seem fair.

  • G Doon Unda

    Agree with most here, Dummett was exceptional, and when you think of who we were up against! Even Diame put in a shift. As hard as the lads tried, and whether we should have just gone for it (Like Keegan) or not, we showed grit. Hopefully we’ll have enough to stay up. But without investing we’ll be just like those unwashed doon the road and before you know it playing Doncaster (and need I say it, without Rafa)

  • Leazes.

    How can you rate players who never touched the ball?

  • ghostrider

    Player ratings are easy. Give them all a 4 for turning up and looking like they were going to play football before ending up being the training defence for Man city’s attack training.

    Imagine putting speedy players on that pitch who could damage Man City and telling them all ” you get a few fleeting runs over that half way line and if you disobey orders I will play Manuel and pepe from the club canteen who will take orders to the letter.”

    Something like that.

    I’ve been embarrassed in my time with Newcastle teams but this one if so frustrating because as embarrassing as it is, I know in my heart and mind that a better manager could get this team to actually play entertaining football and get results enough to be comfortable.

    Going to places like Man City and basically playing Custers last stand is criminal and a total disrespect to the fans.

    Rafa Benitez I am asking you to do the right thing and walk away from this club and do not look back.
    Give us a chance to avoid relegation whilst there’s still enough games left to do it.

    Mike Ashley: please go out and bring in a manager who will get the players to play a decent balanced game of football that gives us a much better chance of gaining the spoils and also entertains us.
    That’s what we are here for and we are not here to just make up the numbers.

    Lying down and cowering in favour of allowing teams Like Man City to just walk the league is pathetic.
    I’m fuming.

    • Cockneytrev

      Which manager would you suggest?
      Hoop licker👅👅

      • ghostrider

        Come back to me when you’re all grown up.

        • Cockneytrev

          Come back on the site when you actually know anything about football,,
          Your comments are always in favour of Ashley then when you try to write anything football related it’s nonsense
          Hoop licker👅👅

          • ghostrider

            Anything that doesn’t fit your criteria is nonsense.
            You’re entitled to that and carry on for as long as you want to.
            Keep tugging at Rafa’s coat tails and pat his back.
            Keep telling him how world class he is and how he’s doing a fantastic job.
            If he spits in your face, thank him for the liquid of his being.

            Laughable in the extreme.

          • Cockneytrev

            Wow!!
            From the one who argues with anyone who has anything to say against his hero,,
            Irony is not your strong point,,
            And neither is football,,
            Hoop licker👅

          • ghostrider

            He needs some back up when he’s unfairly set out to be the blame of everything.
            Rafa Benitez should have his aris kicked all the way back to merseyside.

          • Cockneytrev

            Stick to hoop licking Ashley
            Because you know nothing about football,,

          • ghostrider

            lol.

    • Cockneytrev

      This has just proved you know absolutely nothing about football,,
      Hoop licker,,👅

      • ghostrider

        Don’t worry about it, kid.

  • Peter Stabler

    Great to see Dummy and Diame getting some credit for good performances.

    • Cockneytrev

      I agree,,
      Dumett was our MOM and Diame also put a shift in,,

    • toonterrier

      Never a fan of Dummett but the last couple of games he’s played well so whether he’s lost weight or increased his training schedule he looks a different player. Well done lad keep it up.

  • Mike

    heck look at the stats………18 corners to nil is that a record?

  • M.A

    Look at all those empty seats at the ’emptyhad’ in your pic, were there even any city fans there hohoho
