I have a sort of melancholy feeling about these "Post Safety Games," they're kind of like . For Newcastle over these last few games it's been nice to see the sort of confident edge that safety has brought to the side. I'm hoping that Alan Pardew can find a way to keep this feeling in the front of the minds of these players through the summer. Come past the jump for the MOTM poll.

Today was a another showing of that confident edge. The match was entertaining for NUFC fans, but not much of a competition. The first half was all Magpies as the lads possessed for an astonishing 83%, and scored two goals off it. WBA had two golden chances spoiled by Steve Taylor, who played the part of a keeper with no arms. One of the two goals came from Saylor as well, the other from Peter Lovenkrands. Joey Barton's haircut ran the midfield wonderfully, and Shane Ferguson gave a glimpse of what we can look forward to with him.

The second half was more of the same woes for Albion, as the baggies led it off with an OG from Jonas Olsson. The poor Baggies seem to have taken safety with a lazier attitude than most, but the second half changed all of that.. NUFC could have made it worse too, but chose to hold their existing lead for the rest of the match.Which ended up costing them two goals against, one on a Danny Simpson Gaff, and another on some poor clearances. So the last 20 minutes were a bit more interesting than anyone in Newcastle would have liked them to be. And those ended with Somen Tchoyi completing his Hattrick, and dooming NUFC back to Twelfth in the table.
