Danny Ward then comes out of his goal and gets a hand to the ball (0:06) forcing the former Ipswich Town man wide; however, he then turns and slots his effort between Ward and the defender on the line to spark wild scenes in the away end. (0:08)
Was Murphy a good signing for Newcastle?
Yes, he did a job
No, waste of space
This was one of the five goals that Murphy managed in the Championship for the Toon, and this footage has drawn a positive reaction from these Newcastle fans.

He was brilliant for us will always be grateful for his contribution whilst here!
His contributions that season must of repaid a good 10 times what we spent on him

First of all, what a ball that is from Shelvey!
Secondly, I love that the Huddersfield keeper runs off to join in the celebrations! ?

What do we think?
Costing just £4m from Ipswich Murphy, who is valued at £900k (as per Transfermarkt), scored some important goals for the Toon in their successful 2016/17 Championship season – as he scored in wins against Huddersfield, Brentford, and Rotherham.
