Rob Elliot made a string of outstanding saves to help Newcastle to a desperately needed victory away to Bournemouth today and Twitter went into overdrive.

Newcastle fans were quite shocked that their team held on for the win and for them there was only reason they secured the three points - Rob Elliot.

Elliot was that good today, that many fans called for Roy Hodgson to call him up for England - despite the fact that he is an Irish international.
