Newcastle United 0-0 West Ham United – Premier League – 24th August 2013

Britain Soccer Premier League

St. James’ Park played host to a goalless draw which had its fair share of goalmouth incident and saw Alan Pardew’s Magpies pick up their first point of the season.

West Ham defender Winston Reid almost put through his own goal in the first period while after the break the New Zealand centre-half had a couple of chance to put the Hammers ahead himself while Joe Cole also saw an effort fizz just wide.

Newcastle’s main man was Hatem Ben Arfa who was a constant thorn in the side of the Hammers, while Yoan Gouffran came might close late on. However, ultimately neither side could break the deadlock.

    West Ham are always set to be decent but never outstanding.

    That’s what they do.

    Nobody wants to see them in a relegation dogfight, and under Allardyce it should not resort to that. They’ll be ok, in a Stoke kinda way. Especially once big Andy gets fit.

    As for Newcastle, expectations are always raised. It was a shocking season last year, and the start of this season can hardly have taken many by surprise.

    It must really hurt the Toon to see themselves on par with Sunderland, but that’s realistically where they currently are.

    There’s not much dividing the North East rivals, and unless Pardew can weave some transfer magic I don’t see anything more than lower-bottom half dogfight for either.
