Alan Pardew Unhappy With Cheick Tiote


Newcastle’s disciplinary record this season has not been good.

Cheick with Pardew after signing new six and a half year deal

Cheick Tiote will return tonight from a two match suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards on the season, and he also missed 3 games earlier this year for being sent off at Stevenage, and another game last year for picking up his first 5 yellow cards.

Mike Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini have missed three games each for the fouls they committed at Bolton last November, and Joey Barton missed three games this year for punching Morton Pedersen in the home match against Blackburn.

So Newcastle have missed some of their top players this season through suspension, and of course Kevin Nolan is currently serving the second game of his two match suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards, , and he will have been suspended for three games in total this season.

Ryan Taylor was also suspended for three games for being sent off against Bolton at home, and James Perch missed a game recently for being sent off in a Reserve game against Manchester United.

So that’s around 21 matches players have missed at Newcastle this season through suspension, and given the small squad we have, that has had a big negative impact on the season.

And there’s no doubt at all  that Newcastle have dropped points in the league, because of these players being suspended.

It’s hardly surprising that Alan Pardew has noticed that, and he talked yesterday about Cheick Tiote, and how he must improve his disciplinary record at Newcastle:

“From my 16 games here, Cheick’s missed five of them through suspension,”  “That can’t be right and  Kev’s missed two.”

“He can be overzealous at times.” “It’s something we’ve got to iron out next year, we can’t afford these suspensions.”  “It’s an important balance and Tiote needs to get that right.”

“He is important to us and we have missed him. We missed him against Aston Villa with the pace they have in the team and having him back in the side is going to help us considerably.”

Cheick’s been aware for some time that he needs to improve his disciplinary record and hopefully he will learn, and sooner rather than later.

Let’s hope he doesn’t get a yellow card tonight against the might of Manchester United.

    Selby, it was typical misleading headlines. You could basically see the smiles on Tiote’s face etc. A total non starter 🙂

    That was never in question Roshan. Tiote really needs to sort out his tackling though. Through pre-season he needs to work on his timing in his challenges like. Can’t afford to have him picking up a yellow card in every game he plays all season.

    nothing wrong with a bit of a ruck in training. It shows players care.
    Seems like it was a crock fo sh!t though.
    Tiote is class but has cost us big in games overplaying on the ball or playing hospital passes. Just needs to do the simple thing sometimes.
    At times smashing the ball is the right option whatever the purists may think.

    in Cheick defence I think the majority of the 10 cards were picked up earlier in the season and he has gotten a lot more cautious since.

    I just don’t want it to affect his tyle of play in any way!

    Haha, some people are so eager to slag Pardew off that they’ve failed to notice that AP has a valid point, and also that hes in all likelyhood chuffed to bits with Tiote on the whole.

    as long as he does not tackle Nani we we be alright, we have all seen the little nancy overreact to contact from a tackle. he will be getting a couple of our players on a yellow tonight i can tell you that for nothing.

    I think that when a player goes down in the manor that Nani does, Rolling around, screaming ect. i think that if they get up seconds after they get the free kick/penalty, and start running around unharmed by the tackle that just had them on the floor, I think they should get booked for being a poof, trying to get someone booked and to win a free kick for their team.

    I understand that you get some that hurt for a while and some that hurt until you pick yourself up, but the likes of Nani go down as if they have just suffered a career ending injury from a tackle, to then be up and running or to take to free kick, there is no need in it at all, and i think it is spoiling the game for everyone, what do you guys think?

    I play youth football and broke my leg 2 weeks ago going into a 50-50 tackle. i just got up and limped off the pitch.

    So when i see Nani and co diving around the pitch from minor contact it sickens me! should be wiped out of the game. total disgrace.

    Am not a fan of diving but its a part of the game and we wouldn’t moan if we had nani or young and they won us free kicks and pens

    But obvious diving should be fined after the match imo that would stop players quick. Same with swearing that is caught on camera, £100,000 per offence. The money could then go to charities

    Let’s be honest… the only direction that money would go is to FIFA and then into their charity fund (aka Sepp Blatter’s summer house)

    I do understand what Mildew is saying, but I think he’s learning all the time, for a first season in the Prem, he’s been spot on.

    No-one can deny him and Nolan were missed from the Villa game, they are the heart of what we do well and must behave themselves.

    Guthrie showed he’s not good enough and Colo was a lost sheep till he moved back.

    Never mind, its the red scum tonight, the lads will need to be at there best.

    Hardly unhappy, he just feel he is being overjelous and refs are giving him a card for these tackles which most arn’t bookings.

    He basically says he should calm a bit but most of his speach was directed to refs and especially the way Fergie factor comes into play with refs more likely to send off/give pens and Man U’s ground.
