Newcastle United 2 (Arp 39, 49)
Chelsea 4 (Pedro 13, 15, Hazard 41pen, 45)
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Schar, Ricca (Dummett), Shelvey, Cuisance (Diame), D'Amico (Murphy), Ayoze Perez, Atsu, Arp
Our title dream seems over as Chelsea go 7pts clear of us. They destroyed us in the 1st half and I can have no complaints. That's 2 successive defeats in the league and 3 games without a win.
Newcastle United 4 (Diame 33, Murphy 64, Koscielny 65og, D'Amico 82)
Arsenal 1 (Aubameyang 13)
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Schar, Tierney, Shelvey (Ki Sung-Yeung), Diame, D'Amico*, Ayoze Perez, Atsu (Murphy), Arp (Muto)
Wonderful!!!!! Tbh Arsenal had 21 shots to our 14 but once we took the lead we battered them and they just caved in and Lascelles even had a goal disallowed. A perfect way to end our poor run of form.
Tottenham Hotspur 3 (Lamela 30, Eriksen 50, Alli 69)
Newcastle United 0
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Schar (Maresic), Tierney, Shelvey, Diame, D'Amico (Murphy), Ayoze Perez (Xadas), Kenedy, Muto
Spurs, somehow, are languishing in 10th position but they taught us a lesson here and beat us easily.
Newcastle United 3 (Muto 21, Hagen 25og, D'Amico 65)
Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 (Diogo Jota 32)
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin*, Lejeune (Maresic), Schar, Tierney, Shelvey, Cuisance (Diame), D'Amico, Ayoze Perez, Kenedy (Xadas), Muto
We bounce back with a fairly comfortable victory but Shelvey missed a penalty for us. He has only 1 goal this season which is poor.
Crystal Palace 1 (Zaha 80)
Newcastle United 7 (D'Amico 2, Muto 21, Ayoze Perez 33, 40, 88, Lascelles 63, Schar 68)
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Schar, Tierney, Shelvey, Cuisance, D'Amico, Ayoze Perez*, Kenedy (Murphy), Muto
Quite simply breathtaking!!! Before the game I was asked about our poor away form but we shut them up here with a ruthless performance as we smashed 7 past Crystal Palace. It was a party atmosphere for us as even our 2 CBs got goals.
FA Cup Semi-Final
Everton 1 (Dubravka 113og)
Newcastle United 3 (Murphy 97, 112, Arp 115)
Lineup - Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Schar, Tierney, Shelvey (Diame), Cuisance, D'Amico (Murphy*), Ayoze Perez (Xadas), Kenedy, Muto (Arp)
Into the final we go!!!! It was a tight game although we had a goal disallowed in the 2nd half but in extra-time our superior fitness told and we brushed Everton aside.
Newcastle United 1 (Kenedy 75)
Manchester City 1 (Sane 90)
Lineup - Woodman, Yedlin, Lascelles, Schar, Tierney, Shelvey, Cuisance, D'Amico, Ayoze Perez (Diame), Murphy (Kenedy), Muto
Officially we can still win the title but Sane's last minute equaliser hands the title to Chelsea.
Our title dreams are over as Chelsea have managed to pip us to the title with 2 games remaining. Well I say that - if they lose both of their games and Man Utd win all 3 of theirs then Man Utd win the league and the two teams play each other but its Chelsea's to lose and we are hoping to finish 2nd.
Champions League football has been secured for next season and I have been given a healthy £60m starting budget for transfers. I am hoping to sell at least £30m worth of talent so a big summer is coming up!!!!
We made it to the FA Cup final and will play Man Utd so hopefully we can have our day in the sun and end the near 50 year wait for a trophy. The club is celebrating its 125 year anniversary this season so to win the FA Cup would be fantastic.
