Griffin claws back Charlton
Sir Bobby Robson, the Newcastle manager is frequently frustrated by Laurent Robert, but his Frenchman remains one of the Premiership’s most entertaining individuals when he is in the right mood. This was one of those days.
Robert relished the space offered him behind John Robinson, who laboured in his wing-back role before being mercifully substituted in the 73rd minute. By then celine replica handbags, Robert had scored Newcastle’s 59th-minute winner, a well-taken goal but one overshadowed by the startling strike which brought Andy Griffin another goal to add to his decisive winner against Juventus in midweek.
Newcastle had dominated the opening 30 minutes before their defensive frailty $405 celine women’s baby audrey cl 41053 surfaced again to present Charlton with their first away goal in nearly six hours of football. Andy O’Brien made a weak header as he tried to clear Claus Jensen’s cross and Titus Bramble compounded it with his half-hearted reaction. Shaun Bartlett made a more convincing challenge for the loose ball $2500 celine nwt new 2017 mini belt handbag cloud grained calfskin bag authentic and the South African striker took advantage by steering a shot past Shay Given for his first goal in 19 matches.
Until then, Charlton’s failure to make any attacking inroads had made it only too $4200 celine nwt new 2017 medium clasp frame $3850 nwt celine phoebe philo runway white silk pants green stripe fr 36 us 2 4 handbag black sleek calfskin bag obvious why they had failed to score in their previous three away games. Newcastle were far more enterprising, particularly Robert, who was denied a goal by Dean Kiely’s alert save in the 17th minute; the Frenchman also provided the inswinging corner which Gary Speed headed against the post four minutes later.
Charlton’s lead lasted only seven minutes before the stunning equaliser from Griffin. Shearer laid the ball back into the path of the right-back on the angle of the area and he struck a venomous shot into the far top corner.
Griffin $810 celine paris flat sandal zipper front optic white leather slingback 36 and his defensive colleagues remained less decisive in front of their own goal. Bartlett was allowed to go clear in the 39th minute, but his poor finish was blocked by Given.
Newcastle were soon back in charge after the interval, however, and their pressure $950 new celine us 9 paid off when Robert finally claimed the goal he deserved. He had already forced Kiely to make a fine save in the 53rd minute when the Frenchman was given far too much space by Robinson.
But Robert’s next attempt was too good for the goalkeeper. Ameobi played the ball into Robert’s path and he steadied himself before powering it inside the near post.
Charlton’s response carried little conviction until the 70th minute when Aaron Hughes $850 celine c bravely threw himself at the feet of Gary Rowett $3300 auth celine luggage mini shopper 11×12 tote black to block a shot by the defender.
It proved a brief interruption to Newcastle’s superiority and, while Shearer failed to score his 100th league goal for United, there was nearly another $870 celine leather cream shoes 39 it 8us 5uk made in italy $2700 new 2017 authentic celine nano debossed luggage gray calfskin aqua trim 7 goal for Robert, who headed wide from a good position 14 minutes from time. A headed goal from the Frenchman – now that would have been a collector’s item.
