What a difference a half makes. Once down by four goals and with no way back into the match, Newcastle are now within a goal of getting an incredible point and completing a famous comeback against title-challenging Arsenal. Newcastle were awarded another penalty by referee Phil Dowd, a lighter and more gifted award than their first, but a penalty nonetheless.
This time, central defender Mike Williamson was softly fouled in the box by Tomas Rosicky and Joey Barton again stepped up and calmly chipped down the middle of Wojciech Szczesny's goal. It's all setting up to be a grand finish in Newcastle in what is a match where Arsenal were once up by four after only 26 minutes.
A major key in Newcastle's comeback have been the myriad of free kicks Arsenal have gifted to the Toon. Arsenal are fouling Newcastle left and right and Newcastle have thus far capitalized on the errors.
