West Brom 3 - 1 Newcastle Pro's and Con's

Premier League West Bromwich Albion
comment on the article

Well another great victory, very impressed with everyone today we really look a great team. Scharner looks the deal at centre back but can only have two out of four Ollsen, Tamas, Pablo, Sharner who would you pick ?????

Pros. 3 Goals, Did it without getting somebody sent off,Superb passing, no dubious penalty's, Scharner.

Cons. No clean sheet...... thats it

BOING BOING :)

"No complaints about the result but some interesting stats today. West Brom made eleven fouls to Newcastle's nine. Five of Newcastle's nine resulted in a yellow card. None of West Brom's eleven did. Any guesses who the home side were?

Well, the difference was that Newcastle made several awful/cynical tackles, including Smith's: he certainly went out to 'do' the player.

Can't go blaming the ref today, mate. If anything he was kind on you. Even though I didn't think we were firing on all cylinders, we pretty much dominated from start to finish (bar a 10 min period in the second half).

3-1 was kind on Newcastle and the ref had nothing to do with it. To summarise, no, it wasn't an interesting stat....

Good luck for the rest of the season though. I am sure we will both stop up.

Not sure I've been watching the same game and the same players.

The BBC have given us lots of credit!!!

Tchoyi was immense! We controlled the show and got one of those trademark goals. We look a completely different team with Ode in it.

Newcastle looked a show of themselves...thanks to us keeping the ball off them.

Someone said that we didn't have a booking and Newcastle picked up five. Well the game wasn't exactly hard, in fact I doff my cap to our games against Necastle because they are always fair. That said the Newcastle bookings were those modern day shirt pulling types...and Smith the thug should have walked for what he did. But he is the last of a dying breed who are allowed to do it because he is Alan Smith. Everyone around me said he's gonna butcher someone when he walked on because we were on top.

Newcastle made WBA looked good simply becoz the bunch of N'castle players were flat esp. in the first half. Enjoy whilst it's still good. Based on the performance, it's still pretty difficult to end the season in the top 10.

We were terrible but full credit to West Brom, they played great. I think you've got an outside chance of Europe the way things are going, certainly a top half team.

Tchoyi had Enrique in his pocket and that doesn't happen very often.

Hope we stay up with you.

I found it rather amusing this so called hard man Smith who tried his best to injure someone as soon as he came on, would not go near and infact, allowed Tchoyi to go around him every time he had the ball.

NUFC fan: was watching on the TV, I was shouting and swearing at the TV after 5 minutes as it was clear to me that Newcastle just couldn't be bothered. Turned it off at 30 minutes and went out, terrible attitude

was a great game being a west brom fan, dominant display and RDM's boys are playing proper premier league footy!!!

was interviewed by sky sports before game and asked what i thought was different to last time in prem and i said we looked more clinical and likely to finish teams off

and i guess it was right as this display shows :)

i thought that odemwingie looked impressive again and tchoyi looked good aswell (at times)

MOTM was defo brunt in my eyes ran the show again

BRING ON THE DINGLES!!!!
