Roy lets get real here, it was actually the game of the weekend in TGLITW so please do not talk it down.

You watched it ?  ( more proof that the boogie man watches the Premier League)

You must have watched pretty crap football if you thought that was good. I guess you must be real fed up watching  Barcelona or Real Madrid winning 6 or 7 nil every week

Chelsea 3 Arsenal 2 was canny good or were you watching Barcelona beat some team 3 nil ?

Because Craig Pawson is the worst ref in the PL. I have never seen him call a match that he didn't screw up double-digit calls.

If he did see it, he needs some time off from being a ref.

If he didn't see it then the correct decision according to the rules was made..It's the rules that need changed.

He also sent off Hayden but didn't send off Cardiff's Arter for a similar offence.



In other Newcastle United news, our U23 side beat sunland 5-0 at St James' Park last night, seeing that we haven't beat them for a long time I'll take the win :D 

The crowd was 3,381 including about 300 away followers.

It looks like Newcastle are playing an interesting formation - 9-0-1.

Looks like its working too.  That and mugging Chelsea around midfield.  

Newcastle deserves credit for coming out and playing hard.  If there is is dissension in the club house it doenst show on the field from what I can see.
