Newcastle vs Liverpool – a Proper Test ?


Everton were no pushover and we deserved the win after playing in most parts back to what we’re used to seeing week in week out. However Newcastle look like a new castle, having a superb season under Howe and this match up has the ingredients to be a fkin crazy one. For us this is the litmus test to whether we truly have found a little bit of rhythm in our link up play, our speed in attack and defence and our tempo through the phases. As important as this is to witness what’s more important is 3 points and we all know it.

Amazing what a win and a good performance can do.. last week I think I mentioned in a comment that I’d rather see us put in a big performance and an unlucky draw than to get 3 points because the season was almost screwed anyway. ‘Just play the kids now’ , ‘go all out and hard until the end of season’ etc…

With the likes of Bajcetic arguably cementing his place in the mid, Elliot on the score sheet recently (even when we’ve been shite), Doak on the peripheral waiting like a pumped up tartan Tasmanian devil and now we have Darwin Gakpo and Salah linking up in a more meaningful and consistent manner things are starting to screw into place. Let’s keep it up redmen and go throw the Toon to the moon! ?oh.. and also what Geoff said ?❤️
