Derby 0 Newcastle 2 – This isn’t a criticism, I just think it is a very risky way to play, but in Rafa we trust!
Jamaal Lacelles was happy with a textbook 2-0 win because as he points out…”The last time I was on this pitch, I rugby-tackled one of the fans!”
Rafa Benitez on Yoan Gouffran’s man of the match performance: “We know this is a player who had problems…”
Interesting comments from Derby fans on Newcastle defeat including…: ‘If you think today had anything to do with luck you are an ostrich.’
DeAndre Yedlin found out he had scored only once the Newcastle fans reacted, when interviewed saying”It’s a pretty special feeling…”
A bit of a kick-off between two factions watching the Manchester derby – the upshot being that as Derby 0 Newcastle 2 kicked off, many of them were enjoying tea and crumpets in the company of the Spanish police!
Yoan Gouffran sums up the team/squad spirit at Newcastle “It’s hard to be a sub but you enjoy the game like a fan. Maybe not the best goal I have scored but a nice one…”
Rafa Benitez welcomes the players back into training on Sunday only hours after the win at Derby County: “We can improve in defence, the middle, in attack…but I am really pleased!”
Nigel Pearson thought Derby County were hard done by…”We had looked the team most likely to go in front…for the whole of the first half we had some positive moments.”
Rafa Benitez brings a clarity and pragmatism sadly missing for a generation – with this moment during Derby 0 Newcastle 2 perfectly summing it up.
