FT: Coventry City 2 Newcastle 2 – Extra Time Being Played


Newcastle looked to have this game tied up, when they held onto their 2-1 lead and when the referee said 2 minutes of injury time, it looked like we could win this game, even if we should have had it wrapped up long before the end.

But after 93 minutes and 10 seconds exactly, Coventry got an amazing equalizer when direct from a throw-in out on the right, Coventry captain Scott Dan headed in, when he beat Coloccini to the ball.

But we thought there was 2 minutes of added time to play?  That’s just the way this game has gone, and it’s all to play for now – and we must still win this game. This will be a good test of character for the lads. They should be through now – but they’re not.

We’ll have the full time report after the game – we’re exhausted – never mind the players.

    How many times are we going to hand the ball over to them in front of our goal? We’re asking to lose this.

    ROb what’s your problem mate, all you do is whine about Given. Now it’d be something if there was one thing to whine about but there’s not. He’s been excellent so far this season, has been brilliant for us. Neither of the goals were his fault, and he’s kept the score down.

    Mighty MO is leading our very own Geordie Justice League.

    Mister Bates is doing everything he can to give Coventry as good a chance as possible. Not only did we have the added added time at the end of the game that enabled Coventry to score the equaliser, but Nicky Butt conceded a freekick because he touched the football whilst being within 5 yards of the opposing player.

    MA has to give our skipper a new contract 2 goals in 2 games both winners please give MO a new contract. Rob I respect your opinion but have you been on holiday as the reason we have 4 points in the premier league is because of shay I tell you if he was english he would be englans no 1

    Defence were very impressive imo even though they scored twice. Colo / Bassong obviously my CB pairing with Taylor cover.

    we are going to have a KNACKERED squad against Arsenal. Now MA definitely needs to buy 3 or 4 players.

    A good result on Saturday against Arsenal will come down to who we get in between now and then and whether they’ll be able to play.

    Still, 3-2 isn’t really such a good result considering we didn’t have a striker on for the most part.

    We actually played really well tonight. Two players were awful though, Bassong and Beye. Slow to react, gave the ball away too often, and were generally poor. Bassong out for Taylor, and we have a good defence, if Enrique keeps up that level of performance.

    We need a bigger ‘squad’ though, so a couple more signings would be nice. A DM especially.

    Happy with tonight though, we passed the ball brilliantly. As for Jonas, did anyone actually see him give the ball away?

    my good but did beye have a shocker today.he was awful.thought bassong did well for his debut and enrique was very good 2.colo was fantastic with the ball on the deck,but suffered with the high ball.given made 1 excellent save and had no chance with the goals.guthrie was very average in the middle.hoped more from him.nzog should be on the wing all the time just not a very good defender.jonas has some feet and he,s strong.he,s going to be a big player for us.milner had about 10 shots but they were all crap.but he worked his socks off up front.and butt was butt.

    Spyro – earlier comment elsewhere – I agree – Beye looked short of match-fit. This may have helped. Probably the 1st time he has been the worst of our back 4 – but’s that’s more to do with the other 3 being so damn good – he was just ok.

    I thought Enrique was very good.
    Coloccini is the first defender I’ve seen in a while who obviously enjoys defending – very solid.
    Bassong oozes class.

    All 4 signings are bloody good – well done to whoever spotted them 3 more the same please.

    Brilliant performance from the lads tonight, two years ago we would have crumbled in that position. Good to see KK’s taking us in the right direction (Bassong looked v. good tonight also, definately one for the future.)

    Bassong didn’t make a mistake??? 😀

    Made at least three. One almost cost us a goal, but they hit the bar. Taylor is far better than him.

    Bassong made just as many or less mistakes than Taylor usually does. Both Bassong and Taylor are as good as each other and fantastic buys for the future.
