3 positives and 3 negatives from Leeds 0 Newcastle 1 – Soccer Sports

Saturday afternoon ended at Leeds 0 Newcastle 1.

Newcastle wanted a little more than Leeds, and after Shelvey scored a goal, the home team never seemed to be equal … despite the nerves of traveling fans!

Before each match, ask one of the writers to come up with three positives and three negatives after the game. This time, it’s David Punton.


Most important victory

It was a winning match after a broken heart with Watford. Thankfully, and in a nerve-wracking tension, we left West Yorkshire at three major points. Huh.

Newcastle is by no means an easy way, but somehow it has reached 15 points. It gives us a faint light of hope that we can actually get out of this drop zone.

Good results for Leeds can be a great psychological boost for players to be able to watch the game when they are tight.

We are now heading for a break with a much better spirit, with time to regain the injured player, and perhaps more importantly, signing a few more new players. This will be important. A big week awaits.

Elegant key run

The Match of the Day team emphasized Trippier’s performance.

He played a great game, he really did. Positional, distribution, and leadership qualities. He is also, as expected, third very good at right-back attacks.

Everyone knew he was a good player, but he was hungry under Ashley, so it takes some getting used to actually having prime-cut beef.

It’s better to skip United than Kieran Trippier, and Russells may have a knock.

He will need more from him between now and May, but he is the type you want when the tip falls and is a bag of experience. If he helps us get up, he should be a knight.

Eddie’s progress

Social media wasn’t a great place after Watford. People were wondering about Eddie Howe as a manager. It’s easy to get hooked on it.

While still tough for Eddie, the game was a sign that he may have begun to make some progress in the training arena.

I was confused as to why I sat down on the Hornets, but it seemed to be resolved and we were on Elland Road’s forefoot.

He has performed excellently from Trippier, Shelvey, Longstaff, Willock, Wood and Dubravka, and ASM is a constant thorn on the side of the team. Longstaff in particular has done so well, taking part in the attack and balancing the midfield, so it’s worth mentioning. It was great.He now needs to find that consistency

Howe may not be out of the woods yet, but he and his team of coaches will make this shift in our destiny, as we will not be able to change managers again between now and May. You have to expect to be able to supervise. That would be crazy.


Troublesome video

Once again, an important moment has arrived that requires VAR intervention.

This time I contacted ASM in the penalty area of ​​Leeds, but actually shouted Ishigaki’s penalty.

Surprisingly, the video assistant didn’t consider it a spot kick. I can’t believe it. I took the chance to make it 0-2. If Leeds scored, we would point to this as the moment the formula beat us.

I don’t believe in conspiracy, but my words certainly don’t get help.

I’ve never seen such a blatant penalty. What was the reason for not awarding it? The contact information was clear.

Injured walking

Team Bus was injured by Russells, Dammet and Joelinton and pulled away. Not ideal. Let’s see how they settle down and what the scan says.

Jamal has been sticking lately and some of his critics will undoubtedly suggest that we will not miss him. It’s a controversial point, but it certainly emphasizes the need to bring a fresh look to the middle half.

The club has not signed a new senior center since 2018. It’s amazing.

Given his transformation under Howe, Big Joe would also be a mistake, and if he returns to the treatment room in the long run, you must feel Paul Dummett. When fitting, Mr. Dependable.

Problems outside the ground

There was a problem with inadequate crash / cue management at the Elland Road ticket gates before kickoff.

Not what you expect to happen in 2022.
