Carroll, Ranger And Guthrie All Start Against QPR

nufc-crest qpr

Newcastle manager Chris Hughton makes two enforced changes to the side which beat Ipswich Town on Saturday with Fabricio Coloccini and Ryan Taylor both injured.
Argentine centre-back Coloccini (groin) is replaced by Danny Simpson, back from an ankle layoff, and in at right back, and Zurab Khizanishvili, on his home debut, reverting to center-back – as expected.

Ryan Taylor, scorer of one goal and maker of two on Saturday night, who has a calf strain, is replaced by Danny Guthrie in midfield.

Nile Ranger and Andy Carroll both continue in attack, with Harewood on the bench, and Jonas Gutierrez is back on the bench after a month-long hamstring absence.

Tamas Kadar seems to have recovered from his groin strain, and is on the bench tonight, in place of Ben Tozer.

Watch for Gutierrez and Harweood, and perhaps Lovenkrands all to make an appearance in the second half tonight.

TEAMS

Newcastle United: Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Zurab Khizanishvili, Jose Enrique, Danny Guthrie, Alan Smith, Nicky Butt (c), Kevin Nolan, Nile Ranger, Andy Carroll
Subs: Tim Krul, Peter Lovenkrands, Marlon Harewood, Jonas Gutierrez, Geremi, Tamas Kadar, Ryan Donaldson

QPR: Radek Cerny, Mikele Leigertwood, Kaspars Gorkss, Damion Stewart, Gary Borrowdale, Wayne Routledge, Ben Watson, Martin Rowlands, Akos Buzsaky, Jay Simpson, Rowan Vine
Subs: Tom Heaton, Peter Ramage, Alejandro Faurlin, Hogan Ephram, Adel Taarabt, Patrick Agyemang, Alessandro Pellicori

    TheToonKing I want to see his mask later when he gets a run out

  • 5 RooneyToons // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:23 PM

    Any one got a link to watch the game?? i know its on the radio like but its just not enough

    Come on boys 5 points clear… Ranger hat-trick

  • 6 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:27 PM

    thats our best defense by far ofcourse houghton who arse is red raw from siting on the fence wont ever release.

    how cant he see that butt is shocking ameobi is shocking and collocini is shocking

    houghton will only sign players on 3 month loans howay man chris get some balls and get them for the season. the only player he has signed permanently is one he knows that the supporters like.
    in 3 months time chris or however is incharge is gunna have to do this all over again.

    dont get me wrong I admire chris for just getting on with the job but howay man have an opinion

  • 7 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:27 PM

    Are they playing the two defensive mids with guthrie & Nolan on the wings, or is smith playing on the left in a diamond?

    There’s absolutely no way that Arse is playing on the wing!

  • 8 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:28 PM

    Nobby, I’m pretty sure that he wasn’t permitted to get players on loan longer than 3 months

  • 9 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:30 PM

    BigDave- Jonas cant use the mask anymore sadly. The FA changed the rules regarding celebrations like, a good few months ago now and im pretty sure he himself has said he had to retire the celebration because of it.

  • 10 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:31 PM

    QPR actually have some players that i recognise!

  • 11 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:31 PM

    well in that case why wait till now to loan players why not january

  • 12 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:33 PM

    Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:30 PM

    It was the Premier League that outlawed it. Whether the football league reached the same decision i dont know.

  • 13 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:34 PM

    nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:31 PM

    Because we’re short of players now, let alone what it will be in January!

  • 14 roblee7 // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:35 PM

    Anyone got a link to watch the match online?

  • 15 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:36 PM

    Non UK fans, here’s a radio link:-

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/5livesportsextra/commentaries/

    Its on 5 live sports extra so shouldnt cut out!

  • 16 RooneyToons // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:37 PM

    Nobby Sol,

    Because we need them now and we can always extend it/sign them in January. If we hadn’t of got Zurab then we’d be screwed for tonight so its a good job we did

  • 17 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:37 PM

    roblee7 // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:35 PM

    As its not being broadcast by any TV channels, its unlikely there will be any streams to watch the game. Radio only in afraid.

  • 18 chuck // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:37 PM

    Could the fact he is playing Butt be, that he is the manager and been around the game all his life and could possibly (along with prior managers here)know a little more about the game than those baying idiots who constantly call for his exclusion?
    Stop embarrassing yourselves, please.

  • 19 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:38 PM

    No way to watch this…only radio….next televised game will be on oct 20 i think against Forrest.

  • 20 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:41 PM

    We saw this intent on playing players that weren’t up to the task last season and look where it got us.

    Butt has not been helpful at all this season, and Smith has done fantastic as a lone defensive mid with Nolan being able to patrol as an attacking center midfielder. That has proven to work. Butt has not. It’s simple observation

  • 21 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:41 PM

    radio isnt working atm for me?!?

  • 22 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:41 PM

    by january i ment summer

    Jonas has his mask it must stink by now

  • 24 Shot Bru // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:43 PM

    Dunno if the diamond formation should be utilised tonight as Rangers have 2 dangerous players out wide, in particular down the left with Buzsaky. Hence i would’ve left Butt out and included Jonas on the left and Guthrie on the right.

  • 26 JonnyNufc // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:44 PM

    Ross theres an article up on the official site with him saying he still keeps it in his short and wants to use it. So if its not allowed he himself isnt aware of that lol

  • 27 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:44 PM

    Butt will be playing on the left just like he did against Ipswich.

  • 28 roblee7 // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:44 PM

    ah man, gutted, cheers anyway. guna have to watch MO probably score a hat-trick for man u with the radio on over the top….makes me sick, cant stand the man! n cant stand the fact he got a move 2 man u….massively jammy…him n martins are as much to blame as anyone IMO for last season, both missed absolute sitters that could have kept us up…n not just one or two sitters either….both guilty as! I’d love it if we play Man U at home again n Owens playing (hopefully next season)…am i right in thinking he’s one of the most hated ex-players of NUFC history? Or is it just me with this boiling sespit rage towards the horse-loving midget???

  • 29 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:45 PM

    Dennis Wise on Sky Sports saying Hughton should get the job and thinks we will get promoted.

  • 31 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:50 PM

    Is it working for you lot?

  • 32 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:52 PM

    BigDave- Fair play to him! I didnt realise he’d planned on using it regardless of whether he’s been told to or not, haha.
    ——————————

    On another note, i am in no way sexist… but i cannot be bothered having to listen to this lass on 5live.

    Christ, 1-0 QPR. Yet another deflection. Sounds like they’ve started well.

  • 39 RooneyToons // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:55 PM

    Sounds like they’ve got a lot of pace… something we definitely haven’t, we might get turned over here

    COME ON BOYS

  • 40 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:55 PM

    seriously, they already scored? This is all Nicky Butt’s fault…

  • 41 TOON LAD // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:55 PM

    3-1 tonight lads

  • 42 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:55 PM

    get harewood on 4 butt this is only gunna go down hill

  • 43 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:56 PM

    No movement, QPR parking the bus. We knew it would happen sometime. Plenty of the game to go though.

  • 44 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:56 PM

    nobby-

    Agree m8. Butt should never play. I don’t care about his experience. He’s bad luck.

  • 45 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:56 PM

    Is it just me, or have we not been able to start any of our games well? We seem to start every game on the back foot.

  • 46 toonoholic // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:57 PM

    i think it was enriques fault and it was a wicked deflection…

    WE WILL WIN THIS GAME

  • 49 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:57 PM

    @OHurley , i agree , everything is Butt’s fault.

  • 50 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:58 PM

    Toonoholic-

    Seriously m8- it was Butt’s fault. Even if he was on the other side of the pitch. The fact that he’s playing at all means we have to fight bad luck for 90 minutes.

  • 51 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:58 PM

    Apparently QPR started well, passed it quite nicely and deserved their goal, we’ve started poorly seemingly, been quite sloppy.

    They’ve also just mentioned the fact that even though they think we should get the ball wide, we have 4 central midfielders starting. Too true, we’re absolutly desperate for width.

  • 52 bobby_ollox // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:58 PM

    yes but he didnt have to retire actually scoring goals though did he

  • 53 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 7:59 PM

    wba play preston at weekend nice fixture for us to watch

  • 54 Nick D // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:00 PM

    How ridiculous playing Butt at all and then in the left side of a diamond !!

    Loven, Spidey, Lua, Geremi or just about anyone would balance it better there.
    Just because Smith has done Butt’s job properly and inspirationally, we have to accommodate the club captain at the expense of the team, it stinks, especially playing at home when we should be going all out.

  • 55 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:00 PM

    This woman commentator is sh1te. Im not being sexist, she is just sh1te

  • 56 toonoholic // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:00 PM

    QPR are having a good tempo. From what i hear, our players are playing like 11 80 year old on viagra trying to score in a brothel !

  • 57 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:02 PM

    1-0 down ffs, if only i could hear it

  • 58 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:02 PM

    Nick D-

    Agree. I wish Butt would just freakin’ retire… Have we EVER won a game with Butt on the pitch?? He’s SHOCKING. :(

  • 60 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:02 PM

    i rekon there was far too much hype about ipswiich performance we created 5 chances and scored 4 yes good record but only 5 chances created not good enough IMO

  • 61 toonoholic // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    o hurley yes we won with ipswich :)

  • 62 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    from what i’m hearing, Butt is absolutely worthless on the left side. Why is he the captain anyway? Because he’s old?
    We’re playing like last season, not being able to play the ball past the half way line.
    GET BUTT OFF!

  • 63 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    toonsy-agreed. Like i said, im not sexist, but i cant be arsed listening to her at all.

    “Here come Newcastle! ball into the box, oh and steven taylor clears well” has been my favourite so far.

  • 64 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    Why oh why did Butt get offered a new contract :( :(

  • 65 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    Penalty

  • 66 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:03 PM

    yes penalty

  • 67 toonoholic // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    awesome. penalty

  • 68 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    PENALTY FOR US !!!!

  • 69 phoonck // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    penalty for newcastle!

  • 70 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    Guthrie misses!

  • 71 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    Oh my god. Guthrie penalty saved.

  • 72 toonoholic // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    whose going to take it ? guthrie ?

  • 73 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    It actually makes me a little sick to think that Alan Smith, who ABSOLUTELY deserves the captain’s band, is always looked over in favor of Nicky Arse. I mean, Smithy’s been a revelation this season, and yet we STILL insist that Butt should wear the armband. UGH!

  • 74 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    PENALTY!!!!
    Way to shoot it at the man’s hand, Taylor

  • 75 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:04 PM

    anyone got a sniper ?

  • 93 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:07 PM

    Actually lads- Guthrie can shoot really well. This is all because Nicky Butt is playing. The football gods are against us :(

  • 94 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:07 PM

    Nolan should have taken the pen, or Smith!

  • 95 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:08 PM

    not even a penalty and then a crap one at that when it was taken apparently.

    Poor start thus far from us, they sound dangerous when going forward aswell.

    Toonsy-This commentary in general is shocking…”well guthrie will be confident, he scored a lovely goal at the weeke..i mean he’s confident at the minute”

    aaargh stupid guthrie, getting red cards and missing penalty. today is a perfect chance to take a nice lead on the table

  • 100 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:09 PM

    Guthrie will have to come off by the half if he doesn’t redeem himself

    sounds like we are playing plop…steve stone says we are playing awful

  • 102 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:10 PM

    Guthrie would be 1st choice

    remember that one at Wigan!

    how many of you questioned that one?!?

  • 103 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:11 PM

    Yawn.zzzzzzzzz

  • 104 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:11 PM

    It’s Butt’s fault, he was probably to close to Guthrie.

  • 105 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:11 PM

    big chance

  • 106 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:11 PM

    The commentator needs to stop saying “Ranger’s on the counter-attack”. I dont quite know who she means lol

  • 107 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:12 PM

    Half hour gone don’t think we have had a shot yet.

  • 108 sahota // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:12 PM

    we r shit till now and need to improve a lot to score. Fans need to kick AR5e of players and say them to play football

    It’s not even half time and Butt has given the ball away 17 times! Keep counting!

  • 114 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:14 PM

    ToonKing-

    Butt absolutely must have been close. Guthrie can score crackers. He was a good call to take the penalty. This is ALL BUTT’S FAULT. Simply because he’s on the pitch. Take him off and we’ll score 3.

  • 115 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:14 PM

    Guthrie having another stinker!

  • 116 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:15 PM

  • 122 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:17 PM

    So its all Guthries fault then?

    NOT our rubbish left backs Enriques????

    load of rubbish

  • 123 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:17 PM

    Butt and Guthrie will probably have to come off shortly after the half. Hopefully Hughton sees what’s wrong with this game and adjusts at half time. The lads just don’t seem to know what to do right now.

  • 124 Obafan // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:17 PM

    Come on Toon, change the game. Before half time we need to get level, so the 2nd half with a few subs would see us win this game.

    Butt should stop playing football. Why do the keep playing him, I cannot understand.

    We didn’t start the game with our strongest team, so subs need to be made.

    Harper
    Simpson – Zurab – S. Taylor – Enrique
    Lovenkrands (Guthrie off) – Smith – Nolan – Gutierrez (Butt off and taxi)
    Carroll – Harewood (Ranger off)

  • 126 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:17 PM

    We need to shake up QPR a bit, seemingly playing with confidence and passing the ball with ease. If this terrible commentary team can clearly see that the problem is out wide, then surely Hughton and co can see it. I’ve never knocked Hughton regarding his decisions this season, but Butt on the wing is a bit ridiculous, even with the 4 midfielders we had to choose from (nevermind the likes of Jonas etc) i’d have put Guthrie on the wing.

    Guthrie in one on one and he cant make the most of it.

  • 146 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:20 PM

    RyanToon-To be brutally honest, Guthrie isnt playing well from what they’ve said. He’s missed a penalty, hasnt looked up with the golden opportunity just minutes ago, and his delivery into the box has been poor seemingly.
    I’m not saying its his fault but by the sounds of things, he hasnt been overly impressive.

    To say Enrique is rubbish is pretty silly too, he’s been one of our best performers this season, i havent seen a single winger beat him for pace or strength.

  • 147 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:20 PM

    Guthrie should stay in, but he needs a little pep talk. Butt OUT. Unquestionably. Butt OUT, Jonas IN. FFS.

  • 159 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:23 PM

  • 162 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:24 PM

    We’ve got to make this pressure count here though, we’re pressing on and getting closer

  • 163 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:24 PM

  • 170 xisco-hidden-gem // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:26 PM

    @ RyanToon

    missing a penalty in this league is a discrace..i agree that being anti guthrie is pathetic but at the end of the day if he scored there wud be no need for the anti-guthrie rants

  • 171 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:26 PM

    Come on lads, equalize before the half! Do the masses proud!

  • 172 Big Dave // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:26 PM

    crying out loud Lads cut Guthrie a bit of slack he is young he mucked up the 2nd trying to make up for the pen

  • 173 chanty // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:27 PM

    how we doing apart from loosing lads? just tuned in last 5 mins, sounds like we’re on top at mo. what was their goal like?

  • 174 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:28 PM

    Anti guthrie because he has wasted 2 apparent “glorious” opportunities to get a goal back, or set one up…

  • 175 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:28 PM

    FICKLE

  • 176 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:29 PM

    The Big lads need balls high into the box (2 Six footers)…nobody can do this.. Changes needed as this sucks.

    Harewood on BLAM BLAM !!

  • 177 Fans Should Own The Club // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:29 PM

    Chanty–a deflected goal for them, though they seemed to be in control, but these last few minutes we’ve been scrapping and scraping to get back in it. A couple of chances for us and a SAVED FUGHING PENALTY.

  • 178 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:30 PM

    It only takes a minute to score a goal. We scored 3 in 4 minutes on Saturday so we have plenty of time!

  • 179 Fans Should Own The Club // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:30 PM

    Oh, and Nolan header cleared off the line apparently.

  • 180 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:31 PM

    Fickle after missing 2 chances? DAMN right! We could be easilybe 2-1 up rather than 1-0 down.

  • 181 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:31 PM

    Ryan-the same could be said about your Enrique bashing, to be fair.

    Guthrie has missed a penalty that he put right down the middle (poor from any player, in any league)..his delivery has also been poor from a couple of dead ball situations and he also wasted an excellent opportunity by choosing not to look up as he was 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper.

  • 182 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:31 PM

    Yawn this Half…I expect some Booing

  • 183 chanty // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    guthrie is still a young man guys, i think he has shown his immaturity and lack of experience in the last two games he’s played, i mean that in the best possible way!!! he needs encouragement not a slating

  • 184 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    See Guthrie is causing mayhem! .. For us.

  • 185 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    gotta make 2 changes at half time…

    Harewood for Ranger and Gutierrez for Butt.

  • 186 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    Ranger and Nolan have injured themselves FFS get Ranger off he is not ready yet.

  • 187 MacToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    Why be so negative about a team that’s top of the CCC?

    Toon Army.

  • 188 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:32 PM

    oh no, please let Ranger & Nolan be alright. Communication lads!

  • 189 AndyNUFC // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    I just don’t understand why Guthrie took the pen, when Ranger’s due a goal and Carroll has been leading the line the last few games?

    I had a stomach feeling this would happen tonight, and they seem to predict well for me because I felt the same about Blackpool.

    I expect Harewood or Lovenkrands to get a goal.

  • 190 Darling27 // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    There’s no bloody width!!!

  • 191 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    Hughton should be doing some screaming and subbing. Get Butt off!

  • 192 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    Get Butt off for me, Nolan in CM, and gutierrez down the left. Guthrie on the right. That should create for a better attacking midfield.

  • 193 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    Guthrie has missed a penalty that he put right down the middle (poor from any player, in any league)..his delivery has also been poor from a couple of dead ball situations and he also wasted an excellent opportunity by choosing not to look up as he was 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper.

    Well the best place to put a PENALTY IS down the middle as MOST keepers dive either way!

    Enrique is useless

  • 202 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:40 PM

    RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:33 PM

    Maybe, but if your going to put a pen down the middle, you need to get it off the floor to stop the goalie’s legs stopping it. smack in the middle of the goal width and heightwise would have done as it takes a very very brave keeper just to stand bolt upright whilst a penalty is being taken.

  • 203 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:40 PM

    Ryantoon

    “Well the best place to put a PENALTY IS down the middle as MOST keepers dive either way!”

    You talk utter tosh and clearly don’t play football yourself. Everyone knows that the best place to put a penalty is far in the corner where the keeper has no chance.

    Stop with the Enrique bashing, it’s a bit lame to be honest.

  • 204 AndyT // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:41 PM

    Butt should have never been bothered for this game. Loven is a left footed speed demon with plenty of class. Give him a game to show it! Why again is Butt the captain??

  • 205 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:42 PM

    Ryan-i’d say hit a penalty low and hard, i wouldnt say down the middle is the best place to put a penalty was down the middle at all. In a corner out of reach with power, would be the best place i’d imagine. The goalkeeper dove to his left apparently and still managed to save the ball-a poor penalty whatever way you look at it. Two people watching the game said it was a bad penalty, i’ll trust them on that.

    “So its all Guthries fault then?

    NOT our rubbish left backs Enriques????

    load of rubbish”

    “Enrique is useless”

    ——————-

    You’re calling people “fickle”, and “F***ing pathetic” due to their comments towards Guthrie tonight, yet you’re doing exactly the same to Enrique, with no real need.
    You’ve Essentially blamed Enrique entirely for us being 1-0 down, when they player you’re defending has missed from the penalty spot, chose to shoot rather than look up and pass the ball for a tap in and wasted dead ball situations into the box-the only time we’ve looked anywhere near dangerous tonight.

  • 206 nobby sol // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:43 PM

    andyNufc i mean we will see what his skills are IE: how he gets us out of this one, subs etc

  • 207 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:43 PM

    Because Butt is the club captain, and he has done so much to deserve it aswell!

    *sarcasm*

  • 208 Bucks mag // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:45 PM

    Still gotta a half to go, and hopefully we’ll coming out at half time with fresh motivation. Sounds like we were a lot better at the end of the half.

  • 209 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:45 PM

    I can’t believe what has happened tonight. As i have been saying for the last few days, EVERYONE who has watched QPR knows what their weakness is, BALLS IN THE AIR !!!

    How has this been so badly overlooked!? Balls should be getting whipped in from all angles. Throw on Harewood for Ranger if we are still 0 – 1 by the 60th minute.

  • 210 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 8:46 PM

    Hate like hell that Guthrie has been pants tonite. I *usually* rate him pretty highly. Oh well. How are we playing in the second half? Better than the first?

  • 266 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:04 PM

    Nearly 2-0. QPR pinning us in our own box :(

  • 267 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    Ryan-why unbelievable? He’s had a bad game, he’s underperforming and we’re 1-0 down. We need to change it up and he is a weak link, not keep him on because you think becoming frustrated with him is “fickle”

  • 268 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    Harewood on for Rangers

  • 269 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    The Hare is on. :D

  • 270 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    Hopefully Harewood has a blinder! lol

  • 271 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:04 PM

    I still rate Guthrie, but he has been very poor in his last 2 games.

    Ranger off, Harewood on

  • 272 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:05 PM

    I cannot comprehend how one day they play with energy and score for fun and 3 days later they are a disgrace…….it’s……idiotic…

  • 273 doofa the loofa // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:06 PM

    @OHurley
    hes in the pay of qpr….. i’ll say no more..

  • 274 Brettoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:06 PM

    Dammit Houghton… Stop taking off Ranger!

  • 275 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:06 PM

    OK Marlon- this is your chance. Go out there and bang a couple in for us.

  • 276 Darling27 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:07 PM

    Come On Harewood!!!

  • 277 tooneskimo // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:07 PM

    Don’t call me fickle or a fair weather supporter. but I’ll be back on here when we’re top of the Premiership…..

  • 278 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:07 PM

    OHurley-no better, they sound dangerous coming forward and have had one or two good chances coming forward. 28 minutes or so to go and we need to start creating serious chances. Ranger off for Harewood just there.

  • 279 RyanToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:07 PM

    see ya, load of idiots on here

  • 280 doofa the loofa // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:07 PM

    go on the hare…. time lads?

  • 281 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:08 PM

    At least Harewood will have a shot from outside the area. Its been too long since we have done that on a regular basis.

  • 282 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:08 PM

    Sod off RT.

  • 283 doofa the loofa // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:08 PM

    Ranger starting before Harewood was a dumb decision..Harewood will eat Ranger for brekkie.

  • 321 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:17 PM

    THERE’S ONLY ONE MARLON HAREWOOD!

  • 322 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:18 PM

    Is that a traditional English brekkie like with black puddin and all? lol

  • 324 tooneskimo // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:18 PM

  • 325 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:19 PM

    What was Harewood’s goal like? How did it happen?

  • 326 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:20 PM

    Ranger got to be a sub next game….he aint ready yet.

  • 327 dougnufc // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:20 PM

    HUGHTON’S SUBS ARE GREAT!

  • 328 Oba // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:21 PM

    Ranger is still learning at this level, I think he should be given some chances, but not every game. Carroll and Harewood/Lovenkrands is the way to go I reckon.

  • 329 Darling27 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:22 PM

    Why oh why oh why aren’t they pulling the ball back to pick someone out in the box???

  • 330 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:22 PM

    SirJason

    Agreed regarding Ranger

  • 331 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:23 PM

    tooneskimo-

    LMFAO!

  • 332 MacToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:23 PM

    Jonas playing a blinda so far.

  • 333 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:23 PM

    Seems like Jonas and Enrique have picked up their understanding.

  • 334 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:23 PM

    Martins on for Wolfs

  • 335 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:24 PM

    Yeah Ranger needs bled in slow…still learning..Harewood is a pro and will prove an animal up front for us.

  • 336 MacToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:24 PM

    Oba on V Man U

  • 337 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:24 PM

    approx 10 mins to go!

  • 338 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:25 PM

    Jonas cant beat a man and cross though.

  • 339 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:25 PM

    Come arn lads get us another goal

  • 340 TheToonKing // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:25 PM

    Let’s trade Watson for Butt…..ginger for ginger….

  • 341 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:26 PM

    Fk off Oba….The Headless Chicken is History.

  • 342 toonsy // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:26 PM

    Enrique played well tonight

  • 343 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:26 PM

    Commentator,

    “I think Enrique has played really well tonight”

    End of that then eh

  • 344 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:26 PM

    Jonas has said he likes playing with Enrique, says they understand each other well and thats apparent like, but he still needs to try and provide more, he gets a bit of a nosebleed in the final third like.

    Harewood sounds pretty determined to make an impression by the sounds of things which is exactly what we want from him, give him a start on saturday.

  • 345 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:27 PM

    7.5 mins remaining Come on TOON

  • 346 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:27 PM

    sirjasontoon

    If you watch a Argentina match, non of them do

  • 347 MacToon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:28 PM

    Enrique had a bad 1st half but has been able to play more attacking football since Jonas came on.

  • 348 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:29 PM

    Harewood should have started tonight…Ranger is not ready,seems to 5hit himself quite regular.

  • 349 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:29 PM

    Seems like both teams have gone off the boil a bit. I think a 1-1 draw will be a good result based on todays poor/mediocre performance.

  • 350 g.s.tooner // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:31 PM

    does it sound to anyone else listening to the commentary on five live that every time the woman commentator talks about marlon harewood, she’s mentally shagging him????

    howay the toon!!!!!

  • 351 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:32 PM

    Yeah settle for a Draw…expected more tonight to be honest,we should be slapping teams at home,nothing clicked tonight.

  • 352 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:32 PM

    Loven on for guth

  • 353 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:32 PM

    Dragonera-agreed. Obviously everyone would love to nick a winner but both teams seem happy with the draw and have slowed down a little. Guthrie off, Loven on.

  • 354 newcastle29 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:32 PM

    WHAT???? a bit late to bring him on, should of been on 15 mins ago!!!

  • 355 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:33 PM

    Come On Toon !!

  • 356 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:34 PM

    That commentator has no idea what he’s talking about Jonas has been injured dummy and is a starter in the argie squad

  • 357 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:34 PM

    3 mins added time,Come Onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!

  • 358 Darling27 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:35 PM

    Houghton has been spot on with his subs tonight.

  • 359 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:35 PM

    Sir & Ross

    I knew QPR are an organised side away from home. They don’t concede much on their travels and i think a draw isn’t a bad result considering our poor performance. Also, it’s one more point gained ahead of our rivals.

  • 360 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:37 PM

    The commentator is a muppet…talked Gash all night very irritating…Smith has played well by the sounds of it.

  • 361 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:38 PM

    a draw’s good enough for me.

  • 362 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:38 PM

    Ah well, still unbeaten at home and 3 points clear at the top. I’m happy.

  • 363 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:38 PM

    Hughton is SH!T!!!! his tactics are awful at times…

    still a point is better than none.

  • 364 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:38 PM

    Never been a fan of draws, but a point is better than nothing. Howay the toon.

  • 365 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:39 PM

    Aye Agree…not a bad result,expectations where high and they do defend well QPR…So I won’t moan too much.

    Great to see Marlon get a goal…FEED THE HARE!!

  • 366 Darling27 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:39 PM

    Got out of jail. I’m happy with a draw. On to Bristol City and hopefully going into the international break still top of the league.

  • 367 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:39 PM

    BBC Radio Newcastles commentators, at times are AWFUL, spend far too much time talking about PAP and not enough on actually commentary

  • 368 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:40 PM

    Thud and Blunder-

    Is that why we’re sitting 3 points clear at the top of this league? Because Hughton’s tactics are crap? Hmmmm, maybe we need more crappy tactics. We’ll qualify for Europe next season…

  • 369 mattnufc // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:40 PM

    Jonas again showed he is terrible, no end product what so ever. What’s up with that!
    Ryan Taylor needs to come back quick to replace Guthrie

  • 370 IrishMan // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:41 PM

    QPR have the best defensive record in this league after ourselves. This was never going to be easy. We’ll take the point.

  • 371 Alex // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:41 PM

    Another point nearer to promotion , if we play poorly and get a draw thats not too bad even though it was at SJP

  • 372 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:42 PM

    mattnufc-

    I think the answer is Guthrie on the bench as a sub for a CM. Nolan and Smith MUST start in the middle. Ryan Taylor and Jonas on the wings. Midfield sorted.

  • 373 sirjasontoon // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:42 PM

    Ashley OOT and Owl Heed Coot !!
    :)
    Harewoood to start next game…and drop that manc Tw4t Butt…knackers yard material him.

    Well done Smudger another brave performance,Gutherie needs a break had a stinker…Harewood is GOD!!

  • 374 Ross // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:42 PM

    The commentary team was horrendous. They claimed Newcastle were attacking before complementing the clearance by steven taylor. They mentioned Newcastle’s right back Jose Enrique getting forward, apparently Danny Guthrie scored a lovely goal at the weekend and Jonas doesnt get a look in for Argentina.

  • 375 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:42 PM

    ohurley

    yes he is, even i could have got newcastle top, the teams we have played have been poor.

    playing Butt and smith at home?? sooo negative!! No width, no pace at all in midfield again, till he brough Jonas on, even he was his usual self again (no end product)

    if your happy with Hughton then your easily pleased

  • 376 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:43 PM

    We missed Ryan Taylor badly today. He gives us width and great deliveries into the box. Ranger will be dropped for Harewood next game hopefully. He needs to be used as a super sub and not a starter. Colo also to regain his place and Khiz to be dropped to the bench as Simpson had a decent game today.

    Team for Bristol;

    ————————-Harps————————
    Simpson——–Taylor—–Colo————-Jose
    Taylor———–Smith——Nolan———Jonas
    —————-Harewood—Carroll—————-

    This is also our best starting 11 imo.

  • 377 Soren // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:43 PM

    Doesn’t sound like we have much to be unhappy about. QPR got a quick goal and played well today. Lets just be happy we didn’t lost, and if we didn’t deserve 3points, then i am happy to take 1point against a side like QPR on a day like today.

  • 378 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:44 PM

    Hate having woman commentators, there all useless!!

  • 379 mattnufc // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:44 PM

    Ohurley -
    Also Collocini and Harewood to start instead of Ranger would be the perfect team :P

  • 380 dougnufc // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:44 PM

    I feel Hughton’s done well to get a point despite losing a goal early on and missing a penalty. His substitutions were spot on.

  • 381 Toon_Factor // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:46 PM

    Dragonera

    Agree that should be the team next week, but imo Shola should be ahead of Carroll when fit.

  • 382 IrishMan // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:48 PM

    Five points clear of the play offs. Let’s keep it that way. My nerves couldn’t bear the tension.

  • 383 Alex // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:49 PM

    Hope R Tayor will be fit for saturday we need width

  • 384 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    Toon Factor

    Agreed. Once Ameobi is back we will have the best forward pair in the league. Both Harewood and Ameobi have pace and strength.

    Also, the problem with female commentators is that they seem to spend a healthy chunk of their air time desperately trying to prove their footballing credentials. For example, in the first half of todays game that female commentator wouldn’t stop digging up random names of footballers who had played decades ago. There was no point to it what so ever. It was cringe worthy to be honest.

  • 385 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    mattnufc-

    I completely agree! Colo has been class for us. I have pretty high hopes for Marlon Harewood too. Good acquisition, him like. Trained with a GOOD premiership side for a long while. I figured he’d be able to bang ‘em in at this level. I think Ranger and Guthrie should be used as impact subs, though I also think that Ranger deserves a few starts in Carroll’s place. Let the two of them compete. LOVE having Nolan as an attacking mid and Smithy can play defensive mid all day long. Perfect for the diamond formation. As long as BUTT is left out. Manc tosser.

  • 386 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    my team for saturday against Bristol City would be

    ——————–Harper—————
    Simpson—-S.Taylor–Zurab—-Enrique
    ——————–Smith—————
    R.Taylor———Nolan——–Gutierrez
    ————-Carroll—–Harewood

    Krul, Kadar, Geremi, Butt,Lovenkrands, Ranger, Guthrie

    If R.Taylor isnt fit then id play Geremi purely for his set plays and crossing

  • 387 Warwick Hunt // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:51 PM

    At this rate we should end up with 104 points with a Goal diff of 57, should be enough to go back up.

  • 388 thud and blunder // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:51 PM

    i still think Colo will be injured for saturdays game

  • 389 punk skunk... // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:53 PM

    The Guthrie gaffe was pivotal…
    …We woulda killed ‘em if that had gone in!..

    …They got a deflected goal & did well, but if the pen goes in, we woulda got more!..

    …As Dragonera says, We totally miss R Taylor’s sweet crosses/set pieces…Thought that would f**k our midfield & it did!..
    …Well, a point’s a point, ‘n all that…still unbeaten at home…At least the team fought their way back into it…& Harewood got off the mark…
    …Ho’way!..

  • 390 punk skunk... // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:56 PM

    Thud & blunder,
    agree about Geremi, i woulda liked him in tonite!..

  • 391 summerof69 // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:56 PM

    thud and blunder hughton has done a good job so far

  • 392 OHurley // Sep 30, 2009 at 9:56 PM

    punk-

    well said. just glad that we nicked a point. really really really wish that guthrie had got that penalty. killed his confidence, I think. He’d have probably done a little better had that pen gone in. Oh well, job done, though not necessarily well done. At the end of the day, a point is still a point.

  • 393 Dragonera // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:00 PM

    Guthrie has earned the right to a stinker now and then. He is normally a very consistent little player for us.

  • 394 punk skunk... // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:00 PM

    We just started, the old, tryin’ too hard after the pen miss & took a while too settle down again…

    …Bummer!..

  • 395 summerof69 // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:01 PM

    dragon he is young aswell so young players do have bad games rom time 2 time

  • 396 punk skunk... // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:02 PM

    His head got smashed after the miss, at home, after havin’ the ‘BALLS’ to take it…Shit Happens!..

  • 397 Darryl // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:07 PM

    I dare bet Nolan would of had the balls to take it after the hat-trick aswell. Would of preferred him take it to Guthrie anyway.. more experienced head.

  • 398 punk skunk... // Sep 30, 2009 at 10:09 PM

    Indeed Darryl!..
