Calling off Archie Thompson's goal for an off-side that wasn't was a let off that allowed Newcastle to score against the play and go in at half time 2-0. Then Matt Thompson got his third - first hat trick for the season (who would have thought?) - and Joel Griffith crossed for Song to get his first ever goal. Melbourne turn around and its 4-0.
But they came back. Particularly when Ney Fab came on. Anything could have happened in this match, that with the Wellington win, and the Adelaide-Roar bye keeps the top of the table really tight.
Newcastle youngsters looked great.
