Yes, another win for Newcastle United. And yes, more goals for Demba Ba. Today showed how Hutchinson has taught Newcastle various ways to play football which keeps opponents guessing, their success is down to the fact that any opposition sumply is smokescreened as to what Newcastles playing style could be. Today their style of direct, passing quick football saw the ball in the net 5 times, 3 from the unstoppable Demba Ba. Ba pulled the strings with his hold up play and delivered with his poaching qualities. The other two goals came from 2 of the very consisent Toon back four, Jan Vertonghen and Davide Santon. Jan has certainly shown he has an eye for goal this season, and there is certainly no doubt about Santons attacking mind. Newcastle are now 8/1 to win the league.

It's going to take something special to halt the Newcastle United Party Bus.

West Brom arguably gave Newcastle their toughest test for the past 3 months, but still Hutchinson's Magpies still pull through. An impressive first half for the Albion was highlighted by a powerful Shane Long strike to put the visitors ahead just before half time. Hutchinson clearly said enough to inspire the Toon as they came out fighting and Demba Ba scored two goals in quick succession to get the crowd rocking. It was even after that as West Brom were adamant and they kept pushing but Newcastle came away with the 3 points.
