Ex’s law maintains Newcastle’s jinx on Boxing Day

Date:

Newcastle United’s form is starting to worry. Boxing Day history says that the ‘magpies’ are the worst team in the history of the day and this was confirmed by Chris Wood, a player who was dumped by Eddie Howe and scored a hat trick to give Nottingham Forest their first victory (1-3).

Newcastle came into the game with many doubts, went 6 consecutive games without a win and was left out of Europe and the FA Cup, and confirmed their poor dynamics. And that started up front. He dominated the game in the early stages and faced a dubious penalty from Aina to Isak, which the Swede converted (23′).

Although Nottingham looked ineffective at times, they came into the game and found their real hero in Wood. Signed this summer straight from Newcastle, the striker scored a hat trick and it could have been four had Elanga not been selfish in the first half.

But nothing happened. Wood went close before the break, assisted himself by the former Manchester United player, who this time played into the center of the area to allow the New Zealander to score at will. And in the second half he ended his sensational game. He needed nothing and less to catch the ball on the run, leaving Burn pinned with feint and chip the ball to Dubravka (53′) to turn the game around. A brilliant play by Almirón, who was terrific, was Newcastle’s second.

To make matters worse, just 7 minutes later, Wood was awarded the penalty. He caught the back of the defense, took advantage of a mistake (another one) by Trippier to trick Dúbravka in a one-on-one match, knock him to the ground and score the third in an empty net (60′).

Nuno’s Nottingham put the game in their pocket and did not let go. Although Newcastle, with more conviction than football, tried to create only a few chances that went close, the scoreboard did not move further and Eddie Howe will have to break his neck for Saturday to reverse the dynamic.
