Then, after Guimaraes made it 2-0, McPartlin was seen waving his black and white scarf in the air as the Magpies climbed to 12th place on the Premier League ladder.
“We have the ambition to improve so hopefully we’re not in this position again where we’re fighting through the season,” manager Eddie Howe said after the final whistle.
“But the Premier League is so difficult that the league tests you in many different ways. The competition is fierce, everyone will have different goals and dreams.
“All I can promise is that I will do everything in my power to make sure we come back a stronger team. But there is no guarantee of anything.”
Howe was delighted to get a win against one of the top six clubs. “We knew this was something we hadn’t been able to do: get something against the top six,” he added.
“In the future we will have to compete against these teams. We have to be confident that we can win anywhere. This will help us today.”
“A lot of things helped us turn the results around: unity, team spirit and January definitely helped with quality players coming in. The mentality of the group, they were determined not to be relegated.”
“The hardest thing for me this summer is to keep that [group spirit] intact as the group dynamic changes. There is a great connection between us and the fans. The least we can give them is 100% effort every time we play. That’s what they want to see. I think we’ve delivered that overall.”
