The Right Result - Newcastle v Blackburn

NEWCASTLE UNITED v BLACKBURN ROVERS - Crazier, yet crazier

Saturday 27 September 2008

Just when you thought you`d seen everything at St James Park, Newcastle United go and lose a game they should have won. On the day that Joe Kinnear made his unlikely arrival on Tyneside, the Toon slipped to another defeat. Except, two incidents could have changed a 1-2 defeat into a 2-1 win. Firstly, Christopher Samba`s opening goal should have been disallowed for offside so maintaining Blackburn Rovers` 100% record of a Right Result ruling in each of their away games this season.Then, in the second-half, Newcastle should have had a second penalty when Rovers defender Martin Olsson leapt high to handle a Toon cross.

The Right Result is a 2-1 win to Newcastle United.

Blackburn fan here. You can't say that it should have been 2-1 to Newcastle. From what I have seen, it was inconclusive that Samba was offside. There was a lot of white in the box, and it was very slack marking. Not one Newcastle player complained for offside. Secondly, Olssen clearly handled the ball. However, there is no way of saying whether Owen (or another penalty taker) would have scored. Sounds a little like sour grapes to me...

Also if you would have had the first pen then you wouldn't of had the second, because it was only a minute later. We (Blackburn) were much the better team and could have been 4 up at half time.

Blimey when you consider how one-sided the game was in the 1st half does seem a bit rich to claim 2-1 to Newcastle as the right result

As a Newcastle fan even I agree! I can't believe how little Jason Brown was worked throughout the game.
