West Bromwich Albion vs Newcastle United match highlights

Posted on March 25th, 2012 | 11 Comments |

Highlights of Newcastle United’s 3-1 away victory at the Hawthorns.

A very good start against a lacklustre West Brom saw Papiss Cisse (2), and Hatem Ben Arfa both scoring in a game which looked like it could have been a rout at one stage. However, West Brom marshalled their forces in at half time and came back looking much stronger after the interval. Though they came back with a goal from half time substitute, Shane Long, it was too little, too late.

A full match report will follow, and I shall be endeavouring to post a link to a video of the full match if / when one becomes available.

More highlights.

  1. Great result – cracking performance all round…..although Guthrie and Williamson worried me at times…

    8 points ahead of Liverpool and equal on points with the Chelsea oil-money team. 5 points behind Tottenham who are sinking fast.

    Dare to Dream?

  2. Papiss Cisse has equalled Les Ferdinand in being the quickest Newcastle United player to reach five goals (in six games). Don’t know how far that goes back though.

  3. Great result at West Brom would have been happy with a point as we seem to struggle aginst this lot since both teams came up.williamson still a worry for me his confidence looks shot.Still all set up for a great game against Liverpool next week another 3 points will do nice.

    “@workyticket Didn’t Michael O’Neil get 6 in his first three games?”

    I’m sure you’re right, John. I know there were others which is why I said I don’t know how long it goes back. I suspect it’s just Premiership years.

  5. Hi people – am a Baggies fan but wanted to say how impressed I was with your team today. Very well set up, very clever players all round and Ben Arfa was bloody outstanding – what a player! Thought Perch showed up very too – but the whole team looked pretty impressive.
    Never mind getting beaten by the better team on the day and you were certainly that. Good luck for the rest of the season and I hope you finish above that obnoxious London club that play in blue!

  6. Thanks, drewks. To be fair, your lot did make it easier for us than it could have been in the first half, and they were much better in the second. You beat us 1-0 in that one, and you’ve certainly given us a hard time in the previous games in last few years.

  7. Appreciate that drewks. Meanwhile, I too have worries about Williamson. As has been pointed out, his confidence seems shot and has been for several weeks. Apart from that a great team performance, and fantastic to see “Wor Perchie” come into his own after his confidence had been so shot.
    And thanks, as ever, Worky for keeping us abreast via the match banter and highlights.
    A good weekend for the Toon!

  8. C’mon folks Williamsons confidence shot, fact is he’s always been shit, some of you are jus a bit slow at figuring it out.
    If he’s not on his ass, he’s ball watching and would have been responsible for the dissalowed goal had it in fact been allowed.
    Makes poor old Titus Bramble look great in retrospect.
