Newcastle through to 4th round of FA cup
After a shocking first game against Rochdale which forced a replay this evening, Newcastle won with ease the replay paving the way to League one Oxford in the next round.
It was game over for Rochdale within the first 30 minutes of tonight’s game as Newcastle sailed ahead 3-0 in the first half with an own goal then further goals from Longstaff and Almiron. In the second half Joelinton furthered the gap to 4-0 with Rochdale pulling one back making the final score 4-1 scrubbing Darwlows clean sheet.
Newcastle take on Chelsea in the Premiership this weekend which will more likely be a reverse scoreline of the one tonight.
Jailbreak almost every PS3 now possible to run CFW
Until recently, if you wanted your PS3 jailbroke it had to be on a low enough firmware version to allow you to exploit and perform the jailbreak to the system. Recently this has changed allowing even the most recent of firmwares (4.85 at present) to take advantage of this.
I recently acquired a PS3 and decided to do the jailbreak on a slim version. I followed a well informed tutorial on youtube which I have linked below which not only jailbreaks your console but when followed, ensures your files are validated and you have a back up of your Nand/NOR flash depending on what system you have.
Newcastle draw with Man city
An early kick off against Manchester city was this Saturdays treat and live on BT Sport. This game had defeat written all over it but how wrong that turned out to be.
The game started as expected with city taking the lead in the 22nd minute from a goal by Sterling. That to me was just the start of things going by badly wrong.
Willems in the 25th minute evened the scores back up to my surprise and half time came with a 1-1 score.
In the 82nd minute, Man city broke ahead again by a goal from De Bruyne which I thought would have killed off the game with only 8 minutes left and felt too little time to get back anything. Shelvey however saved the game in the 88th minute and drew us level to 2-2 and held on for a well deserved point against Manchester city.
Well done lads!!
Will Newcastle climb to 9th tonight against Aston villa?
Tonight’s game is away to Aston villa and a chance to climb the table to 9th.
Looking at statistics, Newcastle have came out with either a win or at the very least, a draw when looking at historic results against villa. With that said, Aston villa who have recently came back up to the premiership from being promoted will be out to try and claw some points to stay in the top flight.
If Newcastle can catch Aston villa on a counter attack and avoid making silly defensive mistakes then I believe it’s ours for the taking. If Newcastle can somehow win this match then as mentioned, this will lift us to 9th in the table which was last seen in the 17/18 season breifly.
Newcastle beat Man United!
Eating my words here from previous posts, but that’s fine 😃
Overall, not the best of games as entertainment goes with both teams not showing dominance. The game ended at half time 0-0 with one attempt in the first half shaking the crossbar from Newcastle.
Second half started much like the first bit the teams were divided at the 71st minute with a goal from north Shields born and bred Matthew Longstaff. Longstaff shot a raking goal outside of the box into the lower left side of goal from a pass back which defeated the Manchester defender and keeper.
Newcastle are now out of the bottom 3 by a singular point and being replaced by Everton of all teams who sit on 7 points.
Well done Newcastle but we’re no way safe from dropping back in to the bottom three with more difficult games ahead.
Royaly done over by Leicester
I knew we weren’t going to win but to be utterly taken to the cleaners with a 5-0 loss is absolutely dire!
Newcastle played with zero effort and the only true effort noticed on the day was the supporters voices. As mentioned in my previous posts I can’t see us picking up any points until at least December.
Man United is the next game and although they aren’t playing good themselves, they will be a damn lot better than our plight. Steve Bruce hasn’t a clue and it’s clearly showing he’s not the right person to motivate the players and get results.
Utter shambles and Mike Ashley won’t give a toss neither as usual as long as the money keeps rolling in.
Pi-hole ad blocker
Gone are the days when browsing the internet landed you on pages that weren’t full of ads. These days, virtually every website you stumble upon or go to have the annoying ads in them. Sure you can install ad blockers on devices you use to stop them but what about taking it to the next level and blocking them on every device without the need for apps and software to be installed on the device itself?
That’s where Pi-hole is useful. By installing Pi-hole onto say a raspberry pi for example and pointing your device or even better, your routers DNS to the pi-hole, you can be ad free!
By simply installing onto a basic pi and connecting up to your router (including the power to the pi) you can be up and running in 30 mins or less. Take a look at the link below on how.
Strathaven balloon festival 2019
This festival was amazing. The festival was on in August from 23rd – 25th. We travelled to Strathaven on the Saturday around 4am hoping to catch the early morning flights but missed them by about an hour. We did however see the evening flights, the night light show, the morning flights on the Sunday and the sky divers. A truly amazing event and will be back hopefully next year.
Defeated at Anfield
Well it wasn’t going to be anything other than this was it!?
With Newcastle taking the lead early in the game, hope was short lived and the end result was expected with a 3-1 finish in Liverpools favour.
Newcastle are now 18th in the premiership table and with the next game against Brighton hove Albion, if we don’t get a result in our favour for this game then I can’t see us moving out of the relegation zone until December time.
Our games after Brighton are all well established premiership big clubs and can only feel frustration coming. I do feel there is worse clubs playing in the premiership that will fill the relegation zone up as we didn’t play that bad against Liverpool but it’s certainly looking like another pitiful depressing season. Ashley out and Bruce out will no doubt be focus yet again for the followers as we simply don’t pick up points over then next four plus games coming our way.
Next game Liverpool :(
This Saturday see’s Newcastle travel to Liverpool for their next game.
With Liverpool so far winning all their games I can’t see us coming out of this one without being battered and when I say battered I mean destroyed by at least three goals.
It may surprise me and we hang on for a draw if we actually catch Liverpool on a terrible day but I seriously doubt it!
Newcastle as a team are not strong enough or anywhere near the quality our away friends have and if a bets going on, it’s in Liverpools favour.
Nothing has changed with the higher Archy, Ashley is still at the helm of the Titanic toon and this is one of those games that will steer the ship clearly on course to the fateful iceberg!
On a more positive note, here’s the Newcastle Elmer 😄
