Toon Crier: Scoring's for suckers edition

Might a bad miss come back to haunt Newcastle? - Clive Brunskill

Newcastle doesn't score, but gets a decent result in Russia. Here's your links.

Does anyone else have visions of Hatem Ben Arfa's chip shot? Just before he was subbed off, HBA had a golden chance to score for Newcastle. But he didn't connect, the game ended in a scoreless draw, and we wonder. For now, I'm happy. This was a good first leg for us and it gives us a chance to seal the deal at home. But, should Newcastle find themselves down a goal at St. James' Park, we'll be wishing HBA had finished. That said, no one is scoring for Newcastle in this competition. Take away Shola's penalty, and it has been six hours of Europa League play without a goal. Onto the links....

Lee Ryder says its "Advantage Newcastle" for the second leg as he gives his match report.

And Yahoo! UK provides their match report.

HBA is confident his bad shot won't cost Newcastle. He says the Magpies are in "pole position" to move on to the Europa League quarterfinals.

A sleepless night didn't seem to bother Rob Elliot.

There were 72 Newcastle fans in Moscow last night and Alan Pardew thinks that was great. He wished them a safe journey home.

A lot of people voted for Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa as Man of the Match. MYM says it was Yohan Cabaye that sold him on the idea of coming to Newcastle.

For the lads, the focus now goes to Stoke City.

In case you somehow missed it, Fabricio Coloccini is out seven weeks with a back injury.

Some are wondering if this means the end to Coloccini's career Tyneside.
