The ecstasy and agony of being a Newcastle United supporter was by no means extra…

I had fancied a win in opposition to Nottingham Forest within the construct to the sport on the Metropolis Floor.

I additionally mentioned it was a tricky fixture – however even I didn’t anticipate the 90 minute rollercoaster that was in retailer.

The ecstasy and agony of being a Newcastle United supporter was by no means extra epitomised than in that first half in opposition to Nuno Espirito de Santo’s workforce.

After Bruno Guimaraes superbly executed opener, any impartial may have been excused for pondering that United have been about to enter cruise management.

Forest doggedly fought again but it surely was one other man of the second Fabian Schar, who neatly rifled in to revive the rightful steadiness.

“Aah get in” some might need thought, half-time is on it’s manner and a a lot wanted pep speak from rock regular Eddie, however but it by no means appears to work out that manner.

Bang after which a depraved deflection and we’re heading down the tunnel all sq., deflated and with our tails firmly between our legs.

As I mentioned in my on the spot post-match response, thank heavens for Bruno Guimaraes.

That deciding purpose was pleasant, though former Toon failure Matt Selz received a mitt to it.

The sport then proceeded to swing backwards and forwards but it surely was the Toon who deservedly picked up the spoils.

What this recreation proved is that we can not afford to have multiple or two gamers having off days at this stage. There aren’t any straightforward video games within the EPL.

We desperately must change into extra ruthless and stamp our authority on video games once we are within the ascendancy.

There’s nonetheless every little thing to play for this season. A Europa League slot is nicely inside our capabilities and we shouldn’t be terrified of anybody within the FA Cup.

In actual fact, it wouldn’t shock me if Eddie and the Hotrods took us to a different Wembley last.

No one can inform which Newcastle United can flip up on any given matchday up to now this season.

Nonetheless, confidence and momentum is starting to slowly resurface, and we’ve got received our final 4 away video games within the Premier League and FA Cup.

Large Joelinton goes to be an enormous miss. If he had of been on the pitch in opposition to Forest we might have snuffed them out within the first half and went on to win comfortably.

Trying on the brilliant aspect, we could not should play Forest or the scouse mackems Everton subsequent season.

Elsewhere within the EPL, Spurs scored a final gasp winner in opposition to Brighton that in all probability has performed us a favour.

Ivan Toney additionally scored once more, as Brentford stopped a not too long ago resurgent Wolves of their tracks.

I now fancy Arsenal to assist our trigger and beat West Ham and reckon that Manchester United will nick some extent at Villa Park.

It’s Bournemouth up subsequent at Gallowgate and I believe we can be proper up for it.

Victory in opposition to a gutsy Forest aspect after surrendering the lead twice, ought to have actually buoyed Eddie’s expenses.

It was nice to see Anthony Gordon straight again within the fold after leaving St James’ Park on crutches after the Luton recreation. Flash… he’s a miracle.

Lets hope that our membership physio Dr Zarkov can now rub a few of his secret components into Callum Wilsons newest damage.
