Penalty appeal?

It’s just a corner.

Chris Waugh’s 30 minute verdict

It’s like de ja vu at St James’ Park – Newcastle have started in lethargic fashion, and the visitors thoroughly deserve their lead. In fairness, Tom Cairney’s strike was quite spectacular, but Fulham could have scored another two since then. Cairney is controlling the game, just like he did down at Craven Cottage, and it is easy to see why Benitez wanted to sign him in January. The home side are growing back into it though – Gayle’s header has been tipped over – but the Cottagers continue to look dangerous on the break.

Lots of pressing!

15:12Mark Douglas

NUFC showing intent

Nice first ten minutes from Newcastle, who are showing more intent than they have in the early stages of previous home games. Getting Shelvey on the ball is a must, and he nearly teed up Dwight Gayle just now. Rafa will be relatively happy with this start.

Always rising this one.

What’s the atmosphere like?

Atmosphere is pretty good here. Noise levels rising, especially from the corner of SJP that Newcastle fans want to turn into a singing area. Not much to get excited about just yet, mind.

Andrew Musgrove

Brilliant this!

Rather amusing.
