Cisse Passes Fitness Test And Starts – Newcastle Unchanged

11:04 am, Sunday, March 4th, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 769 Comments

Papiss Cisse has passed his fitness test and will start for Newcastle in today’s Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland at St. James’ Park.

The team is unchanged from that which started last week against Wolves, but could only get a 2-2 draw.

And Newcastle have a very strong bench – Rob Elliot, James Perch, Danny Guthrie, Gabriel Obertan, Hatem Ben Arfa, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi – and we expect Shola Ameobi and Ben Arfa to get some playing time some time during the second half.

Sunderland manager  Martin O’Neill has recalled Nicklas Bendtner up front to partner the dangerous Stephane Sessegnon and Phil Bardsley is fit and starts at right back.

This is a game Newcastle must win and cannot lose, and we need the three points so we can get up to joint 5th place in the Premier League table and also do the double over Sunderland of course.

Howay The Lads – get the job done!!

Teams:

Newcastle United (4-4-2): Krul; Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini (c),Santon; Taylor (R), Cabaye, Tiote, Gutierrez; Cisse, Ba
Substitutes: Elliot, Perch, Guthrie,Obertan, Ben Arfa, Lovenkrands, Ameobi (Sh)

Sunderland Mignolet, Bardsley, Richardson, O’Shea, Turner, Larsson, McClean, Cattermole (C), Gardner, Sessegnon, Bendtner.
Subs: Gordon, Bridge, Campbell, Kilgallon, Colback, Vaughan, Meyler.

  • 4 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:08 AM

    Peoplw wonder why some of us fans are so “unhappy” at Pardew but for christ sakes he is playing the same team AGAIN.

    You see the I could manage the lies even over the interviews etc, but the sheer stubbornness with be his own undoing. But anyhow, hope we smash the Mackem filth today, I I reckon this is a good point in the season now for us to TURN THE TIDE…. we need to break this little rot of ours and start performing like Q1 wins wise…

    R Taylor on the right….. one real change but still its in perspective its the same

  • 8 GeordieToon89 // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:13 AM

    gorgonzola – Last article, My operation was because i got a bad tackle on me in 6 aside two footed jump into the side of me knee, which snapped me Cruciate and medial ligaments this was 10month ago and i only got my operation y-day morning

  • 9 super magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:13 AM

    So Sunderland are playing 4411? Tell tiote to stay with sessegnon . I’m slightly annoyed because Raylor was ineffective last week. ( as much as I admire him he shouldn’t be starting every game. A few were saying yesterday that we have a higher win% with overan at rm than Raylor, and we’re saying even though he plays crap he makes the opposition more defensive. However Raylor rarely ever beats his man.

  • 10 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:14 AM

    Gorgon seems like its only you and indian who so unhappy did you really think hed change the whole game plan on derby day? And what are these lies you keep bleating on about?

    you mean the game plan that isn’t working for us really..?

  • 16 archaeomag // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:22 AM

    @Oleg G
    Very interesting – good work.
    I like the ideas of ‘pressure’ on the ball, very important.
    Not enough good crosses, – and everybody looses possession at times – worst crime of all!

  • 17 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:24 AM

  • 21 colwell // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:26 AM

    Sess VS Willo oh f##k!

    Raylor starting shows straight away we are going for the long ball tactic once again.

    Who would of thought at this part of the season our RW would have been Raylor over HBA and Oba?

    It goes too show Pards is more interested in having a midfield of 4 defensive players than going all out attack. Keegan would have gone with HBA,Oba and as many strikers as he could.
    With a defence is as poor as ours why try too defend? ATTACK!

  • 22 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:26 AM

    hey you think 442 is the best for Newcastle….I think its not…..if you find that a reason for me to be an IDIOT then you are a just s little child, either by age or by brain or both in this case smells to me like both…

    shame and disgusting…

  • 23 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    anyhow moving right along with the pathetic swearing and so on…

    “Sess VS Willo oh f##k!”

    I know mate only saving grace we are at home hopefully they have a bad game :)

  • 24 tdt // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:29 AM

    Are they lining up as 442 or 451 against us?

  • 25 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:30 AM

    tdt

    neither

    looks like a 4411 it was on espn

  • 26 shearermania // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:30 AM

    as much as i love keegan – he didnt win us anything…but he created the monster that is nufc…the roller coaster…the nearly there yet so far away….thats the reason we are toon fans and thats the reason why we are respected by other fans…the heart break, the constant return to pain…..thats who we are……..we are the entertainers…………..(sometimes more off the pitch)

  • 27 JDdubai // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:31 AM

    Urgh, Raylor and Simmo on the right together again, we possess no threat from one side of the pitch AGAIN!

    Away from home i know why we do it, protect against attacking home side, but at home against anyone not in the top 4 we should be a lot more attacking and possess a threat from both sides of the pitch.

    I predict Santon as the most dangerous attacking threat today for us and Will and Simmo to send down at least 20-30 long balls over the 90 minutes which we win about 3 or 4 and all which lead to nothing….

    I really hope im wrong btw. HWTL

  • 28 Cheick and Bake // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:32 AM

    You are an undercover Mackem … U idiot … Stop talking rubbish and ill talk to you like a human being and not like an animal

  • 29 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:32 AM

    archaeomag // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:22 AM

    After watching that first half with noting everything that is going on, I saw that people are not only wrong about Cabaye for example, but that they just expect from his something that he is tactically not asked to do. He is pressuring all over the pitch and not giving the other team a run, but he is just not playing a CM for us, not a play maker or anything like that. Him and Tiote, and Also Cisse pressured all 45 mins, was great to notice that.

  • 30 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:32 AM

    “Away from home i know why we do it, protect against attacking home side, but at home against anyone not in the top 4 we should be a lot more attacking and possess a threat from both sides of the pitch”

    Mate I know the frustration…….he is stubborn as a brick…..its sad

  • 31 shearermania // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:32 AM

    come on positive…this is almosdt the same team that demolished manure……..keep the faith

  • 35 colwell // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:38 AM

    Right side of our team Willo,Simmo and Raylor championship players

    Left side Colo,Santon,Guti a million miles apart from our right side.

    “Right side of our team Willo,Simmo and Raylor championship players”

    is a worry…. he really could have mixed it up there, but its Pardew he wont….

    so will see what happens…

  • 38 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:41 AM

    Mayeb Taylors experience and defensive capabilities will come in handy. But Personally I dont really think Simmo needs that much baby sitting.

    This whole, we need 2 wingers that play as defenders is a joke. In theory i think Pardew thinks its meant to stop us leaking goals. In reality it means we have to rely on our strikers and Cabaye to create chances for themselves and lessen our attacking threat and hope to sit on top of 1-0 or 2-0 leads when we get them.

    we need to either play obertan or Benny and let them learn their trade through games. Or swithc formationg to a 4-3-3.

    Its clear we will never go back to 4-5-1 with both dembas now

  • 39 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:41 AM

    Not keen on Gorgonzola – his lack of guts when we go behind isn’t what you want in a fan – you cheer louder if your losing …

    However I do agree with him today.
    This team should have been changed. You can’t reward that capitulation v Wolves with an unchanged team.

    Anyway the teams been picked and lets hope they’ve had a right rocket during training.

    Lets support the lads 100%

    C’mon the Toon!!

    HWTL

  • 43 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:44 AM

    We’re at home again, and we’re playing Taylor right mid… Again! The most ineffective RM in the whole league! Why!? Obertan at least as an attacking outlet! So disappointed yet again. He better put in a good performance, I don’t want to see backwards and sideways passing with the occasional deep cross! I want to see him cutting in and exchanging passes, and getting into shooting positions. If not… Why on earth is he playing!?
    Prove me wrong Taylor.

  • 44 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:45 AM

    “Not keen on Gorgonzola – his lack of guts when we go behind isn’t what you want in a fan – you cheer louder if your losing …”

    Not quite accurate lad….you may not agree with all of my comments but I am always quite supportive when we go behind mate….you should read a bit more of my posts mate :)

    But its cool…..nothing personal….

    what happens sometimes the team shows they aint interested, that hurts a lot when you are a fan….and you can sense it sometimes, perhaps thats why I go on my rants….

  • 45 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:47 AM

    Tommyy

    we are at home we should be playing HBA righ wing sorry to say…he has no games I know its darby but its the perfect time shock tactic…..something O neill would not expect….

    When Raylor is in the starting 11 he should only be at RB.

    The scum are playing more or less 2 left wingers Richardson/mclean against our 2 RB’s remind me who the home team is?

    0-1 down to Man Utd – Gorgonzola says game over.

    Did we win? we drew cause of a fib penalty could have been much much much worse… lucky for you there was massive luck so you can post such rubbish in all honesty PLENTY other ppl commented that so take it to somebody who cares.

  • 66 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 11:58 AM

    My guess is, we’ll see Ba net within the first 10 mins and we’ll go on to win 3-0!

    Think we could have a player sent off each too. Think Cabaye could be the one walking for us, if it does happen.

    THE LION AND THE HARE

    A Lion found a Hare sleeping in her form, and was just going to devour her when he caught sight of a passing stag. Dropping the Hare, he at once made for the bigger game; but finding, after a long chase, that he could not overtake the stag, he abandoned the attempt and came back for the Hare. When he reached the spot, however, he found she was nowhere to be seen, and he had to go without his dinner. “It serves me right,” he said; “I should have been content with what I had got, instead of hankering after a better prize

    Aesop.

    Work alot, so most of the time, can only be here the week end to watch the games.

  • 114 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:22 PM

    We should stop looking for the challenges and just keep running with the players, stop with the… what is the name of it, to throw ourselves on the other player and just pressure them while standing.

    Let them do that and get more yellows. Tiote, Simmo, going crazy.

  • 115 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:22 PM

    Simpson you tw*t!

  • 116 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:23 PM

    jonas as usual no end product

  • 118 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:23 PM

    Nothing positive apart from Krul yet. We’re more concerned with kicking them than making chances.

    Failing to rise above it.

  • 119 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:23 PM

    Now Simpson will get run ragged.

  • 120 ROSHAN // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:24 PM

    i guess we are not missing much ROSTED

  • 121 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:24 PM

    Giving the ball away so easily. too bad. We can play so much better than this. Come lads, take this into your hands we are better than they are!

  • 122 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:25 PM

    We need to provide Ba and Cisse, we’ve looked lackluster again.

  • 123 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:25 PM

    The way we have been playing so far it should definitely have been 4-3-3. If Pardew cannot see that he should go viset an optician ;-) lol

  • 124 Rosted Pork // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:25 PM

    cricket over nw show the game

    Well done willo you useless lump!

  • 140 colwell // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:27 PM

    what happens when you play 8 defenders you go 1 nil down Pards you tw’t

  • 141 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:27 PM

    Logical. Please, don’t shoot a poor defeatist french, but until now, we must admitt they are the better side.

  • 142 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:28 PM

    F’n Willow. Why would you do that for? Why?
    If you don’t want to play, say to your manager – take me out gaffer.

  • 143 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:28 PM

    Williamson always does that … c’mon Krul

  • 144 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:28 PM

    WTF….I leave my computer for a few minutes….what happened?

    Any way good to see you niafron ;-)

  • 146 Rosted Pork // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:28 PM

  • 147 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Wow. this is just horrible.
    Where are we??

  • 148 Robin // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Williamson is purely shite

  • 149 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    All our players are demonstrating presently, is that they’re as hot-headed and as thick as them.

    Willo is a liability.

    Totally wrong approach to this match.

  • 150 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    so far hoof ball after hoof ball dont see why though

  • 151 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Bendtner is the most stupid striker in the world, Williamson no need to pull his shirt

  • 152 aDeadlyTicTac // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Put Obertan on. No width whatsoever. Lumping balls up again and again, haven’t stringed more than 3 passes together. Sort it out.

  • 153 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Are you for real ref?

    Mike Dean you want bloody shooting for that. We see that week in week out and never given so inconsistent

    Maybe we should start playing the bloody game now, after 24 minutes we’ve done very little

    wake up call

  • 154 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:30 PM

    We are god awful. Been useless since Man U.

  • 155 ilovetoon8788 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:30 PM

    Willo is a liability now. So far we are playing as shi* as usual.

  • 156 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:30 PM

    No movement in the midfield. Static. What did they improve sense last week?

  • 157 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    Soft penalty for a big heated game like this and that early on.

    Terrible game so far. 22 guyskicking each other.

    Said it before SANTON IS A WINGER NOT A FULL BACK

  • 158 ilovetoon8788 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    No improvement from the wolves game. Feel so sorry for us.

  • 159 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    Willo’s always been a shirt-puller … liability

  • 160 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    @Jesper

    At least, i got more money now, so maybe will i eventually do the trip to St James.

    Would have been delighted to there today.

  • 161 GAZ09 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    Same old story every week, cant see us getting to many more points this season

  • 162 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    …to be there…

  • 163 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    Why is Cabaye sat so deep!?

  • 164 Rosted Pork // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:31 PM

    ger arfa in

  • 165 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    And im never confident in Willo. Need Guthrie in mid. He appears to be our only player who can pass these days

  • 166 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    Hi hi Brutooon, leave Bendtner alone. ;-)

  • 167 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:29 PM

    Cannot blame the ref for doing his job. The fact that they don’t give that foul for 90% of the time is the refs mistake, but they can if they see it, so, still willo’s fault.

  • 168 MarkO // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    This is useless, come on

  • 169 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:32 PM

    Jonas DONE NOTHING. NOTHING AT ALLL

  • 170 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:33 PM

    Oh this is great. I wish Pardew would stop confusing, playing a slow, predictable game, allowing your opposition to organise and be comfortable, with ‘controlling the game’.

  • 171 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:33 PM

    MAke all teh changes you want, will not reverse the game.

    They are more compact and play with more heart.

  • 172 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:33 PM

    I am stumped Pardew is warming HBA impressed…

  • 173 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:33 PM

    Gaz – hate to say this, but agreed. I hate the way we play at the moment.

  • 174 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    C’mon lads time to start playing.

  • 175 johhnyrg // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    No Width , no forward thinking no imagination….
    No Hope watching this

  • 176 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    So howay then, how much money has Dean put on Sunderland?

  • 177 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    The lads need to speak to each others. And Pard speech at half time will be important too if we want to win this.

  • 178 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:35 PM

    Jesus at this rate will be lucky to finish game with 9 men on the pitch let alone 11

  • 179 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:35 PM

    Do you think there will be any players still on the field come 90 mins?

  • 180 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:35 PM

    geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    It is 32 mins late mate. We should be playing sense min 1.

  • 181 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    we are being caught in our own atmosphere and hype weird….just not playing so far..

  • 182 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    Who is CREATING?

    The point is WE ARE LOSSING NOW!

    BEN ARFAR NOW…75mins? TOO LATE

  • 183 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    You will get there eventualy niafron ;-) Keepthe faith!

    Why are we still playing 4-4-2?

  • 184 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    Sure, we can also be lucky. Or sunderland’s players could simply be afraid of win and become nervous.

  • 185 super magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    This is why we should have started with a 5 man midfield.

  • 186 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    oh, come on Thump. We are playing bad and no look of improvement. Don’t blame the ref for it.

  • 187 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    WE DNT want Defend …ATTACK PLS

  • 188 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    IS this HOME?

  • 189 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:38 PM

    @Oleg: Look at the cards mate, it’s ridiculous.

  • 190 super magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:38 PM

    Honestly,has someone still not told Chris waddle how to say penalty yet?

  • 191 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:38 PM

    We are being flooded out in the centre by the 5 man midfield. How a manager did not predict this is silly. We have been saying it all week.

    Wouldnt want to risk Benny in a game like this though. He’ll be murdered. Should have had Guthrie in the middle from get go

  • 192 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:39 PM

    Long way to go Keep the Faith.

  • 193 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:39 PM

    sad to see we are being outplayed at home vs mackems so far…..weird viewing this…..

  • 194 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    So plp are saying that WE can loss to Sunderland and continue to Support AP and his tatices and see where we end up?

    But plp we have miss quite a few chances to go up the table..btw.

  • 195 super magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    If we get to Half time 1-0 then we are lucky.

  • 196 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    On the other hand, 2 cards that we didn’t get. And still, we are not helping ourselves at all with those “skills” we are showing on the pitch.

    Even if the ref would want to help us he would not be able to. We didn’t pass even twice without loosing the ball, there is no leader, no play maker, no one to take this game into his own feet.

  • 197 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    Why 4-4-2?

    Casue this is the way Pard like football. Would not play like that, but as i said alot of time, i respect what he achieved.

  • 198 Sinner // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    Pardew needs to take out Cisse and bring an extra midfield player if he wants to get something out of this!

  • 199 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    Problem with a 5 man midfield for us is we need to have goalscoring wingers of AM. Unfortunately we dont have that here

  • 200 Robin // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    we are simply getting outplayed AGAIN

  • 201 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:40 PM

    I don’t disagree with that Oleg, not defending our performance but some of the decisions are atrocious.

  • 202 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:41 PM

    Jonas and Raylor are not wingers.

  • 203 Marty-Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:41 PM

    We are doin nothing again AP
    Same old,we will get back on track in the next game.
    We know what this means to the club and fans blah blah blah
    Starting with 442 was always gonna be liability.

    Heres a stat for you, we’ve never come back and won a game in the league this season. Can’t see it happening today either.

  • 207 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:42 PM

    Only if/when we will decide to play passes, on the ground, and open for to receive the ball, we will be able to play like a football team. All of this long ball crap is not and will not work.

  • 208 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:42 PM

    What a chance! Shame we miss that, will not be much like this one…

  • 209 Marty-Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:42 PM

  • 210 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:42 PM

    WHat ??? 1st on target…COLO Header???

    What are we doing ?

  • 211 oadharee // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:42 PM

    We need to control the midfield that is the key for this game

  • 212 Belly // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    any streams please?

  • 213 MarkO // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    Get Cabaye off for Guthrie

  • 214 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    so far we are not playing football….I am just confused….. we need to calm the hell down…

  • 215 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    We’ve done nothing and have allowed the nature of the game prevent us playing football and to our strengths.

    Defended poorly, created little down either flank with a product at the end and with the end of the first half looming, would have taken 0-0 at HT but this is sickening.

    Unless we get a grip on the 2nd half, we’re toast

    Pardew time to earn your money in 5 minutes

  • 216 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    My mom always taught me that respect is something you earn not demand.

    Pardew need to earn my respect and if you doesnt even bother then how can I respect him?

    This game should never have been 4-4-2 regardless of what Pardew likes :-)

  • 217 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    Belly // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    Use sopcast.

  • 218 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:44 PM

    no way we will get top 7. with this performance

  • 219 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

    long hoof ball again…amazing…dont they get sick of it..

  • 220 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

    When a team is playing bad, the fans blame the ref. So funny to hear this.

    Look at the team, they are not playing well, that is that. Unless they will man up, grow some balls and decide to play real football and stop with that vollyball, we won’t get anything in this game, or the next.

  • 221 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

    Raylor and Jonas CANT dribble. bring on Obertan and HBA !!!!

  • 222 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

    Why are we keep kicking the ball up the field and the ball keep coming back the next SEC?

  • 226 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:46 PM

    Throw Shola and Ben Arfa on, for Raylor and Cisse.

  • 233 ilovetoon8788 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:48 PM

    We can’t string 5 passes together. It’s amazing. We usually hoof it up at the 3rd pass..

  • 234 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:48 PM

    How the fcuk is Mike Dean regarded as one of our best ref’s???????

    What would have be your choice? Guthrie instead of Cissé or something more offensive?

  • 239 colwell // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:49 PM

  • 240 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:49 PM

    There is another option, Colo, Simmo, Willo, Tiote, Willo, Simmo, Colo, long ball. That’s at least 5-6 passes right there :)

  • 241 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:49 PM

  • 242 aDeadlyTicTac // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:50 PM

  • 243 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:50 PM

    Ok, now we are at least moving the ball. Some results. Imagine this for 45 mins.

  • 244 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:50 PM

    Do we need to wait til 45mins to attack alittle?

    @Thump

    Dean is a joke of a ref

  • 246 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:50 PM

  • 253 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    Even though its been highlighted. You know he wont take Raylor off because hes been practiciing free kicks all week.

    Stupid though. Cabaye was a free kick specialist in France.

    Need a threat on the RW. Dont care who it is just someone else. I would perhaps take Cisse off for it

  • 254 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    shocking tactics……….

  • 256 ToonDownSouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    Pardew needs to change one of our wingers for Ben Arfa.

    Jonas and Raylor have been abysmal.

    And CHRIS WADDLE IS SUCH A TWAT!

    It’s called a “penalty”, not a “pelanty” you dick!

  • 257 Rosted Pork // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    any1

    HBA FOR JONAS

    OBA FOR TAYLOR?

  • 258 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    When the ref is the talking point of a derby, something isn’t right.

    We need a 5 man midfield. Raylor in the middle, Arfa wide right, or Arfa in the middle in a 4-4-1-1. We’re getting overran in midfield.

  • 259 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    The only thing that we need to change is our ball movement tactic. No long balls. Good passing. once, twice it won’t work, the third time it will. You can pass long balls for 10 games and maybe won’t get even one goal.

    The ref was fine and at first didn’t allow fouls and booked, but then decided that if he will continue giving all the time fouls, there would be no players left. On the other hand, he lets the game be aggressive and made maybe 2-3 mistakes. Still, blaming him will be the easy way out. We have to play better, as simple as that.

  • 260 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    1) Williamson is our weakest link
    2) Jonas FORGOT how to dribble. Santon dribble more than him for the last 5 games
    3) Raylor (apart from his freekick) cant dribble against the POOR overrated richardson!
    4) Demba Ba and Cisse need support from the midfield. Suggestion Obertan and HBA

  • 261 Indian Magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:54 PM

    this ha the makings of the chelsea game

  • 262 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:54 PM

    Keep the Faith and Stuff? Common, ITs very clear, if your are not studing for the exam, you are bound to fail…its not whather the fans are supporting or not.

  • 263 mattnufc // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:54 PM

    Raylor in for Simpson who’s got a yellow, HBA on for Simpson.
    We will see Shola and Obertan before HBA though unfortunately.

  • 264 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:54 PM

    About Cabaye.

    After France victory against Germany, there’s now alot of chances for him to be a starter for France in June.

    He done a great job against the germans.

  • 265 Rocknstrolla // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    Are we even a football club? We can’t even string 2 passes together! Alan Pardew is a bloody disgrace I hope he becomes the next England manager, I hate him so much.

    Might as well be called Stokecastle FC. Our whole season we have relied on Demba Ba to put away half chances and when he doesn’t or is off form we are f#cked. I said last week Sunderland would outplay us and ppl laughed at me. Well this is what u get from genius Pardew. Don’t worry, im sure he is warming up Shola Ameobi for the second half…

  • 266 Slatymag // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    Simply not putting enough passes together. 5under1and quicker to the loose ball. Hope AP shakes them up at HT at they come out blasting. If no equaliser in the next 15 min then Ben Arfa for me with Cisse off.

    And how annoying is Waddle?

  • 267 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    Pardew keeps picking “safe” teams.

    It’s not working.

    F’cking Attack man!
    Show some balls – spivvy used car-salesman.

    C’mon HWTL

  • 268 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

  • 269 Indian Magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    who will create chances for the strikers

  • 270 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    Lads changing the mid field set up will not do anything as the first tactic of the day is to lob the ball over their heads

  • 271 mattnufc // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    Ba or Cisse needs to be deeper

  • 272 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:56 PM

    I definitely think Jonas needs to come off, aswell as Raylor. Get obertan and Arfa on and lets go for it. We were shocking first 40 mins. A common theme. A real slump on our hands ATM. Regardless of reasons etc we are looking very poor. Simple as.

  • 273 Ben-Arfa11 // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:56 PM

    i hate willo so much what a clown why would he do that in the box it was just pure stupid we need to get rid of him in summer he is becoming a serious liability

    i think ryan taylor is great very nice lad but has no pace and cant beat a man he has to be taken off for benarfa simple as that.

    also take off cisse and put guthrie on so we have more bite in the middle of the park

    such a poor performance

    when all the toon players saying they were up for it haha what a joke

    come on AP u can do better

  • 280 bye bye Shola // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    We need to change our tactics. We are awful possibly change the formation to 4-3-3. Bring Ben Afra on and put him upfront with Ba. Guthrie in the middle and bring on Shola upfront. They can take the place of Cisse, Gutierrez and Raylor. The latter two were absolutely shocking and pathetic and don’t deserve to play for the next few games

  • 281 Slatymag // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t Cisse quicker than a Mackem on giro day. Why can’t we play it through into space ON THE GROUND?

  • 282 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

  • 284 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

  • 286 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    With the way this game is going (Yellows all over the place) we have to be careful with our subs. The last thing we need right now is to be down to 10 men. One sub tops right now.

    JB…you’re right….we need to stop the long ball then and use the players we’ve bought in to the team that like to pass the ball

    no moving
    oh yeah and of course no plan b, what a surprise

    god knows what kadar has done wrong, but jeez does willo suck. stand by for perch coming on to make sure we don’t lose by more.

    for god’s sake give us a 433 pardew or something game changing even if you are normally totally incapable of doing that.
    we’ve got some players, let them express themselves,.

  • 289 Marty-Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

  • 292 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:59 PM

    niafron I hate trying to be clever in hinsight cause you always look like a smarty pans ;-) lol

    I would have played in a 4-3-3 with HBA as an ACM and Tiote and Cabaye just behind. Papisto in the box and Ba and Obertan wide.

    Jonas needs a rest I think. It has more options offensive and is just as defensive as a 4-4-2. Which is one of the reasons why I dont get why any team would use 4-4-2 in modern football. ;-)

  • 293 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 12:59 PM

    we are playing long ball the first 35 mins and IT DIDNT WORK AT ALL

    then we play passing the remaining 10 mins and we are creating chances !!!!!!

  • 294 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:00 PM

  • 302 bye bye Shola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:02 PM

    In the second half we just need to keep possession more. Ben Afra needs to come on now. He may give the ball away but he is no worse then these idiots on the pitch at the moment

  • 303 super magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:02 PM

    i said before the match we should have started with 451, i knew we would get overrun, thats simple tactics. take raylor off, i said before he would be ineffective HBA or obertan atleast beat a man

  • 304 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:02 PM

    The point is the conditions are more suited for a swim that football, so play it on the deck FGS

    No shots on target, need to unsettle their keeper

    Hardly rocket science is it?

    Think the players are away with the occasion and not playing to their strengths

  • 309 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:03 PM

    Of course it is achievable.
    Just in the last year or two we saw amazing comeback, from us and others. You can turn a match around in 5 mins, but we have to change the way we play for that.

    Just please, someone from Newcastle, don’t you have AP’s cellphone?
    Call him, ask him to stop the long balls.

    HBA is on. good. 45 mins for him, that is something new.

  • 320 MNTOONARMY9 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:08 PM

    We were outplayed in most of the first half and are down only 1-0. We are a more talented team with 52,000 supporters behind us…we’ll make a game of it.

    Whether we get enough goals to win will be the question.

  • 321 timuJ // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:08 PM

    the problem with Pardew is that he keeps harking on about how we’ve had a great season. He himself is the biggest culprit of complacency, refusing to mix it up and introduce a bit of unpredictability to make it a little bit of a challenge for the opposition.

    His complacency has found its way to the players, so evidently

  • 322 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:08 PM

    THis is, indeed, something more offensive. DOn’t know for Ba as a winger, but why not, this lad seem able to do everything.

    i dont comment on here well once i think, i sit and read all the comments e.t.c … but as we are playing such a shite abysmal game… long balls, our midfield is being out run and out classd on this performance top 6 ???… mmm?… call us the new stoke city!! i live near stoke and been many a game so no all bout them!! my opinion … bring of r.taylor. and cisse,, pack the midfield with arfa and obertan. we need to start passing and getting to the ball first! ther playing all the football down the rite.. we need switch it to jonas and santon {who by my standards is our best player by far}.. our left back best player in a derby match??? think that says it all!!!

  • 337 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:11 PM

    Now we’re playing football.

  • 338 ochytoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:11 PM

  • 342 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:11 PM

    3 chances in 2 mins hm… lets think why? :) :)
    Nice passing lads. Just keep it together. Enough time to take this one back.

    JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:10 PM

    Raylor. Wasn’t it better to leave Santon in then and put Raylor on the bench? Santon is much better up front.

  • 348 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:13 PM

    Thump, just hope it’s not too little too late

  • 349 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:13 PM

    Strange sub choice i reckon. Santon is a threat

  • 350 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    hh… Jonas: I didn’t see any blood, I am not stopping the game then.

  • 351 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    niafron, aparently Ba has played there before so I thought why not give it a go ;-)

    HBA is on. Very nice, but it looks like as a winger. What a shame.

  • 352 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    Why can’t we play like this all of the time!? Shame for Santon as I thought he was our best player first half.

  • 353 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    Oleg – Maybe Santon has picked up a knock

  • 354 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    Anyone know anything more about this bust up at HT?

  • 355 ochytoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    Come on Benny time to earn your stripes my friend ;) can’t get a decent link think my broadband playin up so I am only going on what you lot are saying and the bbc update coverage…sucks I know but seems like we’re playing much better second half

  • 359 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:15 PM

    ochytoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:14 PM

    No one offered us much up front. Because we didn’t attack until now. I prefer a player who scored already twice in 3 games.

  • 360 MNTOONARMY9 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:16 PM

    Dear Hatem:

    If you score a brace, I’ll let you start the next ten matches.

    Love, AP

  • 361 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:17 PM

    Perhaps Santon is the Weakest Link?

    Goes forward too much …?

  • 362 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:18 PM

    HBA POOR son tripped over…wtf

  • 363 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:18 PM

    Sunderland didnt have any attack from Santon Side !!!

    Why not replace Simpson who got a yellow card

  • 364 Sinner // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:18 PM

    That helps … c’mon we need a goal now …

  • 390 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    Now we must even more to play the ball with passes and not long balls. pass it around, until you find the best option.

    Tiote there with some Oscar performance. Could have also just sit on the ground holding his chest, like he felt really. But, I guess sometimes it is necessary in this game today.

  • 391 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    Tiote for an Oscar but who cares … lol

  • 392 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    bennnnnnnnnnnnnyyyyyy

  • 395 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    Beautiful pass by HBA. Notice, just notice how he is looking, not just giving the ball away. This is why sometimes, he doesn’t have a choice and an option to pass so he prefers to try and hold the ball until someone will open up for a pass.

  • 396 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:24 PM

    HBA doing more than our entire first half so far…although he is being a bit greedy….

  • 397 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:25 PM

    And the Oscar, for best smak in the gob, whilst falling to the hallowed turf, writhing in pain, and getting a player from the unwashed sent off goes to ……

  • 398 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:26 PM

    keep our head up !!!

  • 399 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:26 PM

    man we are waking up LATE…..hope it wont cost us….

  • 400 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:26 PM

    Just keep it up, keep it up. Don’t get discouraged. This is the way to get a goal, not to rush it too much. Must be patient

  • 401 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:27 PM

    Do we need Sunderland to be 1 man down to WIN?

    We better do.

  • 402 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:27 PM

    Bugger… they’re playing Liverpool next. That’s not good.

  • 403 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:27 PM

    This is better … lots of pressure …

  • 404 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:28 PM

    Have a feeling that the scums are trying now to make us get yellow cards. Starter their own talents agency.

    *started

  • 406 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    CAn someone tell Simpson to PASS the Ball to BEN ARFAR

  • 407 Thump // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    Here comes King Shola ;)

  • 408 ochytoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    Shola coming on

  • 410 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    Shola? well, this is one of those games when I won’t say ‘no’.

  • 411 MNTOONARMY9 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    Over/under on time-wasting Sunderland niggles and knocks in the second half: 4

    I might actually take the over.

  • 412 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:29 PM

    Take Cisse off, he’s done bugger all, not even challenging.

  • 413 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:30 PM

    Nolan scored for West Ham

  • 414 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:30 PM

    we will get a red card next… O.O

  • 415 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:30 PM

    Just a question of time at this rate

    HWTL

  • 416 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:30 PM

    B.S! committing too many fouls don’t make it a must to give a yellow. That is rubbish.

  • 417 Sinner // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:31 PM

    Cisse has been f*****g ineffective today!

  • 418 Steve_48 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:31 PM

  • 420 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:31 PM

    Why Jonas gets the ball more than Ben Arfa??

  • 421 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:32 PM

    so no penalty for us then…great…

  • 422 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:32 PM

    Turner with a hand ball, mike Dean gives us nothing

  • 423 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:32 PM

    Keep it up keep it up. Don’t stop. Just play it simple.

  • 424 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:33 PM

    here comes AMEBI :)

    Cisse has been veeerrryyy quiet….I am worried…

  • 425 MNTOONARMY9 // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:33 PM

    Even the ESPN blogger says Ba was beaten by a hand…what the hell?

  • 426 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:33 PM

    Just play it simple.

    exactly……

  • 427 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:34 PM

    HBA losing the ball again…he is p*ssing me off now…

  • 428 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:34 PM

    How are they able to pass more than 2 passes, we have an extra player. damn.

  • 429 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:35 PM

    It would be too much to bare if we are to lose to the scum……sorry to say…

  • 430 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:35 PM

    gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:34 PM

    Again you need an explanation? Tiote gave him a ball while he was covered by 2 players. What do you expect Ben Arfa to do? Tiote lost that ball, not HBA.

  • 431 ToonDownSouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:35 PM

    gorgon

    But the question is, are we playing much better football because he’s on the pitch?

    Or is it just coincidental?

    If it’s because he’s on the pitch, then I’m happy to see him lose it every now and again haha!

  • 432 davis_toons // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:35 PM

    GUYs So you want passing or long balls?

    Just look at how Sunderland Pass the ball Keep the ball!

    Can we do that? No

  • 433 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:36 PM

    Cabaye HOOF ball wth man…. :-/

  • 435 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:36 PM

    Please, to all who are planning to talk about HBA loosing the ball. Look why it happened, not just what happened.

  • 436 elpaso_geordie // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:36 PM

    15 mins since 10 vs 11. dont look like us scoring

  • 444 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:39 PM

    And here is Benny for you. Passing the ball in? We had 20 crosses inside, almost nothing happened. Ben Arfa wants to see a situation when he will pass it and the ball will get in the end to the net, not just giving the ball because that’s what everybody else are doing at these situation.
    Notice that he is always with his head up, checking if he can pass.

  • 445 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:39 PM

    we are playing vs 10 men coomooonn LAAAAAAAAAAAADS!!!!!

  • 450 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:40 PM

    Look at the replay (we are talking – outside the box, after receiving the ball from Tiote? Tiote’s mistake).

  • 451 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:40 PM

    “Mike Dean didn’t have a good view”

    HE WAS RIGHT THERE!

  • 469 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 1:44 PM

    If AP won’t put someone there close to Benny to give him a passing option, he will continue fighting with 2-3 players. He doesn’t give the ball away just to give it away.

    Could have had 3/4 pens with a different ref. Players should have played better in the 1st half however.

    Hey, Bent had an injury time leveler last year…How about a Cabaye blast from 20 yards out?

    There is no such thing “our day”. There is football, and tactics, and quality. We are playing good for the last 40 mins without too many chances. Just need to continue. We can score 2 in 2 mins this way. Just need to not loose our heads.

  • 571 SurefootedShola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:01 PM

    If Pardew cannot see he has to be more offensive from the outset in the future after this, than I’ll lose the little faith I have in him.

    well shola can go back to the reserves :P every season we pull him out for the mackem games, seems a good deal :P

    shud of had 3 penalties and ba shud of scored we should of won, but a point is more then I could of hoped for after the first half

  • 575 euanpolo // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:02 PM

    Good result in the end. Now we need to play like that 2nd half next match as well. Hopefully it will persuade Pardew to play Ben Arfa. Cattermole sent off is the icing on the cake!

  • 576 MNTOONARMY9 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:02 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    anyone else worried that santon has been the weak link in our defence through going forward too much?

    i think from today weve learnt our best team is probably

    hba cabaye tiote santon
    ba cisse

  • 581 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:03 PM

    Pardew needs to play HBA every game and stop playing it safe with Raylor.

    Jonas needs to be replaced.

    Pardew for England , Chelsea, Spurs … lets get the compensation and get someone with some balls in.

    Showed them too much respect in the first half. If we’d had the attitude at the start of the second half from the start it would’ve been a different story. Still happy enough with a point given how low I felt at halftime. Should’ve nicked it but…

    Any links for post match interviews?

  • 585 t00ntime // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:03 PM

    surely ben arfa has proved he deserves a place in the team, changed the game 100% nice dribbles just needs to get the crosses/passes in quicker

    That was by far one of the best passing displays I’ve seen this season in the second half. We’ve proved we can do it – now we have to do it consistently.

    yeah If we dint bin it first half we could have taken it …

    Positive today

    HBA

    HBA

    HBA

    The team fought so hard second half, its as if they where in some sort of COMA first half. They really have to look at themselves at what happened there….
    If Pardew doesn’t start playing him from now on….. will tell us a lot …

    But unfortunately first half was really atrocious….and I am worried what if we played away and didn’t have the fans…… Seriously the strategy of Hoof Balls has to stop….

    But it took great guts to come back and we did…. pity we didn’t snatch it real shame…..

    Cisse was really really quiet…..strange…. Bas penalty was poor to close to the keeper, should have left Shola taken it….a pitty but he fought really hard all over…

  • 595 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:04 PM

    If we can play like we did second half all the time, we could really get somewhere. HBA was excellent today, very pleased for him. He deserves a start now for sure.
    Shame for Santon because I thought he was great first half, if we
    Can get them all playing together we could be excellent.

    They deserve nothing but contempt … ever under any circumstances … scummy unwashed bastards.

  • 603 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:05 PM

    Well. Just to conclude this. First half – awful. Second half, good football, still not enough movement of the ball. We were down but we had enough time so we should’ve played more settled and press them more in the final third. Had at least another pen that wasn’t given, but we had the pen that we didn’t use and it is our own fault. Shola came for us again against the scum and at least we have a draw.
    Don’t know what it would’ve looked like if they didn’t loose a player.

    Chelsea now will look for a new manager, could be a good chance for us to catch them.

    I think that even if I will talk objectively (and I am a huge fan so it is difficult) about HBA, he is a game changer. Maybe not the main player, but he makes the game for us look better and draws a lot of attention to him, makes other players shine more as they have more room to operate.

  • 604 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:05 PM

    hattambenarfa , I don’t think that’s the case – we need forward thinking fullbacks.

    I plain and simple think the problrm is wrong formation and tactics, which the second half clearly showed.

  • 605 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:06 PM

    “yet again so does jonas, today jonas lost the ball 10 times as much as ben arfa”

    and you think he will get reprimanded…NO

    HBA has been eating that pie entire season and Pardwho has been punishing him look what he did to day tore them a new a-hole….

  • 606 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:06 PM

    Also Shola was brilliant when he came on, a really good super sub for us! Just a shame he didn’t take the penalty! He never misses.

  • 611 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:07 PM

  • 612 toonking // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:08 PM

    will pardew finally have learn that raylor should go FB and HBA should be on the wing because the second half we did much more attacking. as for willo get lost you cost us both cenceding a penalty and such a rubbish shot perch does better

  • 613 MagpiesFlyHigh // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:08 PM

    Do the Pardew haters want us to get in a cheap Chelsea reject ? Owner with loadsamoney but no sense – aging team of overpaid prima donnas lording the dressing room and he won’t give him time to rebuild – crazy….Not like the Toon eh lads ?

    workrate is important but atm we only have tricks in santon, when santon was on there RB cudnt do anything when HBA was on there LB cudnt do anything…

    next week we will play 4-5-1 though, as pardew said against big teams that will be the formation

  • 626 MagpiesFlyHigh // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:09 PM

    All Brutoon will do now is change his name, not the tune :-(

  • 627 IFC.Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:10 PM

    The 2nd half was easily the best football we have played all season. Ben Arfa changed the game. The play was flowing around his quality, Cabaye linked well with him and we started to look like a good team. The dirty mackems rode their luck and that cnt Cattermole got what he deserved.

  • 628 hattambenarfa // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:10 PM

    I just feel if pardew cannot mkea system with attacking fullbacks work we cannot take the risk, if he can great but we need a more fluid system probably more along the lines of a 442 with santon going forward and tiote and then either cabaye or jonas staying back. we cannot play hoof ball, if hba learns how to pass we can play triangles with cabaye and double demba!

    as good as the draw was in perspective one point against the inbreds is not enough

  • 629 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:10 PM

    Our next game (if pards will continue being a donkey and won’t change anything). HBA on the bench, long balls, no control in the middle of the pitch.

    I don’t know how after so many games already, he doesn’t see these things.

  • 630 LGFUAD21 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:11 PM

    Second half proved we need to play Benny in a more fluid formation. Even before Sessengon was sent off we were looking way more dominant.

    Hope PARDEW CAN LEARN FROM THIS.

  • 631 nufc786 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:11 PM

    we couldve won today gd performance 2nd half but now looking ahead it wud be great if scum beat the bin dippers or better draw and we need to atleast draw at arsenal

  • 632 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:11 PM

    Wilklo – 4th choice CB until we can replace him.

    HBA a starter every match.

    Jonas a complete waste of time. Cant cross can’t shoot. wtf.

  • 633 t00ntime // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:11 PM

    raylor as full back isnt a good idea… remember the start of the season and we got spanked by every quick winger… well arsenal have gervinho, walcott and arshavin who all play RW which means raylor will be screwed… for me santon has to stay there the question is what to do with willo and how we didnt get a pen when there defender had his hand on Ba’s head… and then handballed it… could of been a 2nd red and another pen

  • 634 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:12 PM

    gorgonzola – I’ll admit I’ve been critical of HBA, but he changed the game today and if ever there was a 45min performance by one man to deserve his place in the starting 11 it was HBA today

  • 635 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:12 PM

    t00ntime, I think it should be clear for now that the way forward is some kind of 4-3-3 variation ;)

    ..and I think it’s clear HBA should be a part of it…

  • 636 NUFCarter // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:12 PM

    Poor poor result penalty saved 10 men what has happened to ba ?

  • 637 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:13 PM

    Without Saylor back who does everyone think should replace Willo? Perch?

  • 638 toonking // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:13 PM

    @ rosted
    rosted next we play arsenal away which i have a big worry because van persie plays the same side as willo and simpson so if pardew keeps both them it will be chaos i would now try raylor and perch because if we still lost i would accept it but willo and simpson being left only makes me more angry

  • 639 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:13 PM

    ANOTHER POSITIVE

    from this game is the effort second half but its been coming cause a repeat of first half and we would have lost it and I would puke and slit my wrists if we lost at home to the scum filth…..

    Cattermole is a filth scumbag if there ever was one. I have never seen such a poor player other than Torres :D

    But HBA has absolutely stunned them and has shown what we are missing. He has however lost a few simple balls but he is our no 10 for Christ sake and if anybody has talent to rip open defenses when we are static..

    ITS HIM….

    @gorgon exactly :P every time u defend HBA u get aload of people saying he isnt good enough :(

    and against arsenal we will play 4-5-1 AP said so after the spuds game

  • 642 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:14 PM

    About HBA loosing the ball. Jonas doing that as much if not more (because he also prefers to take the blame than just kick the ball and say ‘hey, I passed it to you mate’). Tiote and Cabaye who are our other players “with the ball”, loose the ball a lot by passing it – too deep, too short, no where etc.

    So whoever takes the ball to create something, sometimes will loose it. But sometimes they will also create something good. HBA creates more than he ruins.

  • 643 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:14 PM

    AGREED!!!!!!

  • 646 t00ntime // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:15 PM

    I wud love a 4-3-3 but i think pardew will keep a 4-5-1/4-4-2 till then end of the season when he can test things during friendlies

  • 653 bambams // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:16 PM

    Boys and Girls lets just enjoy the simple fact we stopped them winning, I was not at the match only watched tv and cannot believe they got the penalty for that- he could not wait…Was this not the same ref who should have sent Luis off (Cheski) /

  • 654 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:16 PM

  • 655 t00ntime // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:16 PM

    @tds tbf I think ba took the ball as he hasnt scored in 2

    bad penalty maybe feeling the preassure of a new number 9

    unlucky for cisse when he was on we werent passing it the same :( think he could of got one or 2

  • 656 Ibizatoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:16 PM

  • 658 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

    But second half was closer to a 4-3-3 than either 4-4-2 or 4-5-1.

    He can count today as a test then ;) lol

  • 659 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

    So, i will say a word about beny. He surpised me today.

    Last week, i really thougt he gived away. I even said he was no more a NUFC’s player.

    Was totaly wrong it seem…

    To be honnest, i don’t think one single game can totaly change the opinion Pard got about him.

    But there’s maybe some hope now.

  • 660 bringbackemre // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

  • 661 gorgonzola // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

    My ONE fear is that Pardwho will play Ameobi as the sole striker role at Arsenal based on this performance no disrespect but he will be out of his league possibly there..

  • 662 PontiusLee // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

    what a game.
    give HBA a start now please AP!
    he completely dominates any left back. and if we have 1 more adequate player with atleast half a brain to be there when hba needs to pass we can seriously cause some havok.
    alot of us think hba gives the ball away too easily. sometimes that is a sure thing. but most times its because he makes a brilliant run but he has no outlet to give it to. causing him to take one more touch on the ball which then makes him lose it.

    for arsenal.

  • 666 Trent Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    Now this is what must happen! Cagey teams Pards must play Ben arfa! Big teams that we must defend lots play Raylor! Cisse was extremely disappointing today! I though williamson was good today!

  • 667 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    But we will never get the MAX out of HBA if AP won’t put a player (or even two) next to him. When he is on the right, Or Ba or Cisse should be waiting for his pass inside (close to the right side) the box, and another player outside the box (not behind him for a cross, but in front of goal – slightly to the right – to shoot it or pass it to Ba or whoever is next to him/near him)

  • 668 ROSHAN // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    not many would have thought ba will miss the penalty

  • 669 Weezertoon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    If only we’d played all game how we did in the second half. Our passing was good, not just playing hoofball. I hope against arsenal we play the same team we had in the second half.

    Ooops hit send…..
    I am not going to blame the ref we should have done better and this is what is worrying, Jonas (i am not having a go) has not played well for ages, yes he scored a good goal last week but he does not do it for me- lets have a look at HBA for a few games.
    But lets just relax and enjoy- we are better than them and we MUST push for europe by playing ‘ATTACKING’ football….We have nothing to lose but so much to gain.

  • 676 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:20 PM

    HBA should be a starter. He is today MOTM.

    can we drop Jonas and maybe put him as impact sub?

    They are strong, that is true.

    But it also depends waether we will lay on our backs and let them f*** us in the … well you know. Or will we rise up to the challenge, come up with a good plan A (and plan B) and not be so obvious and not play these silly long balls. If we will do that, it is a 50/50 game. But we must continue playing like that all the 90 mins and not – long balls for 30 and then trying to get into the game, forcing our way in.

  • 679 JDdubai // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:21 PM

    gorgon

    To be fair, Pardew did make changes at half time.

    He gets a lot of stick for not being able to adapt to the game, but he did change stuff up, and – althought we were against ten men – I think even in the first 15 minutes that’s the best half of football we’ve played all season.

    Regardless of how much HBA loses the ball, he’s the only player who always always always wants it. The defenders have no choice but to play it long when the midfield aren’t giving them options, but Ben Arfa seems to ALWAYS be there to provide an option.

  • 684 t00ntime // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:22 PM

    lets be fair… shola is sh1te but we shud play him against the mackems

    so we shud put him in reserves and pull him out twice a season ;-)

    cant believe Ba missed that pen, must of been the nerves of his first real derby

    cisse didnt get in the game but neither did Ba till he sending off, best chance before then was a cisse cross

    both our strikers can score from half a chance but cant from easy ones -_- lol

  • 685 Oleg G // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:22 PM

    Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:20 PM

    Agreed about Jonas. I love the player, love him, he is a fighter. But he must feel the bench for once at least. HBA, Cisse, Ba, Cabaye, Tiote (behind Cabaye) with Santon in there as well. em… well, or Raylor or Jonas on the bench, can’t put them both, not enough players.

  • 686 hattambenarfa // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:22 PM

    He also got the peno,good change by AP.

    Other than that I would say that if any of us were offered 4 points from the 2 games against the unwashed at the start of the season we would have taken it no problem, the manner of that draw, where it looked like we would leave the game with nothing then we must be pleased. As I said last night we should just be enjoying the ride, not getting riled up about the destination, only a few short years ago we were relegation fodder and fizzy pop fans. Now we’re riding high baby!!! :D:D:D smile lads it’s infectious!

    Simmo to me is too nervous he has been ok but his bad decisions up front cost us and is too panicky on teh ball would give fergi a try I am impressed with him….

    That brings Santon on his favoured right FOOT not the side but cause Fergi is in thats how I will play it….

    Anyhody why was Santon binned today?

    Would saturate the midfield giving Cabaye a slight CAM role he is too defensive for my liking this season

    HBA has to start to get any hope of attacking football in London

    ryan taylor can go up front when he needs to cross it in. and then santon can play defence.
    snaton can run up with the ball like he does so often and then raylor can come back to play defence.

    Hey mate, haven’t seen you on here for a few days. Enjoy the second half?

    First half we looked scared to play football. Ben Arfa offers everything we need in the team though. Someone who actually wants the ball and enjoys having it at his feet.

    Watching him have the beating of every single player in red & white was an absolute joy to watch. I pray that Pardew starts him against Arsenal, else he may become disillusioned.

  • 719 Marty-Toon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:34 PM

    Great seeing Cattermole gettin a straight red ha ha ha
    Seesengnon and him both missing for the next few.
    Gonna struggle

  • 720 jakesome // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:35 PM

    right lads let me know if you think this is crazy but next season if we get another quality CB to go with collo we could then put saylor at RB whos defensive ability would allow us to play hba on the right wing with less defensive responsibilities ??
    but to be honest at the moment there is no link between cm and cf, ba is trying to fill that role but its not bringing out the best in him
    how about a 4-3-1-2 with tiote in the middle and cabaye and jonas/guthrie either side in cm, hba just in front linking and penetrating

  • 724 bills-son // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:36 PM

    Great decision by Pardew to take Santon off – he is a terrfic footballer but a lousy defender. Guti looked far better with Raylor behind him and what about HBA … tremendous. Thats the first time I’ve seen him really hunting for the ball, if he keeps doing that we’ve got a world beater on our hands.

    And as for Shola … the Mackems will be having nightmares about him tonight. Derby Legend !

  • 725 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:37 PM

    @TDS

    Was maybe him who ruined the Northern Bank? He seem to have the supernatural power to pass through solid.

    So if he’s tired of football, he got a great future in bank robery!

  • 727 Rotonda heights // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:37 PM

    I think we ended up with pretty much the team we should have started with, bar Raylor and Jonas.

    1) Why is Raylor in the team and why was Santon sacrificed to keep him on? Raylor has zero pace or creativity and most of his set pieces fail to clear the first man. It was a good job sessegnon went off

    2) Why didn’t Shola take the pen?

    3) Why isn’t Jonas rested for Fergie or Obertan?

    4) Why isn’t krul coached to throw the ball out quicker.

    5) Shame we didn’t keep Tav, Simpson is so poor.

    6) Whatever Kadar has done, he has tobe tter than Willo, who is getting seriously found out.

    Better today in the end, by luck more than design by being forced to play Benny, what a talent the guy is.

  • 728 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:37 PM

    Anyway, this game wasn’t unoticed in France, already alot of comments about it.

  • 729 free giveaways // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:38 PM

    Ben Arfa HAS to play every game now if he stays fit. They guy is so skillful, I really don’t understand the criticism he gets sometimes. Cisse to me is a bit like Any Cole or Darren Bent; he’ll score goals but doesn’t affect the game too much outside the box. This is the team we should play from now on;

    Krul

    Simpson Williamson Coloccini Santon

    Ben Arfa Cabaye Tiote Gutierrez

    Ba Cisse

  • 739 North Atlantic Magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:41 PM

    Demba Cissé was useless today and so he was against Wolves. Apart from scoring he showed nothing. He has a very bad first touch and never wins the ball in the air.

  • 740 ToonDownSouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:41 PM

    Rotonda

    Maybe it’s the old thing where the person that wins the penalty doesn’t take it.

    It makes sense usually. But NOT when it’s Shola against the Mackems.

    I dont actually remember the last time Shola missed a pen?

  • 741 Indian Magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:42 PM

    Rotanda heights,

    Pardew has siad that there will be a new contract for Tavernier 100%

    Unless u mean for this season, and nt to send him on loan

  • 742 Rotonda heights // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    toonking

    we’ve got tav, who should be in our first team squad at least, way better prospect than non footballer simpson.

  • 743 North Atlantic Magpie // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    Playing under Pardew and being useless in the air as a striker is not a good sign.

  • 744 niafron // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    About what is said in France concerning the game or about Beny robbing Bank?

  • 745 free giveaways // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    North Atlantic Magpie;

    Don’t agree that he has a bad touch & I thought he played well against wolves but he is a penalty box striker

  • 746 jesperfuglsang // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    JB
    Regarding Papisto getting no service today and had little to no impact, I wrote this earlier today:

    There are probably many reasons and depending on how to look at it maybe that’s one of the reasons.

    But for me in order for a modern 4-4-2 to work fullbacks need to go forward and put pressure on the opponent – that was what Enrique did for us and what he does for Liverpool.

    But a modern 4-4-2 needs to be tight, which ours isn’t. Two factors are important:

    1) keep possession, to take the heat of our defense

    2) only play with two forwards if you create enough chances.

    We don’t seem to fullfill any of the two. That’s why we struggle in my opinion.

    And I think second half today showed I was right.

  • 747 MUTINYbyLEMONS // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:44 PM

    What a second half. We should have won. I was happy with Ba taking the penalty even tho Ameobi is one of the best players i ever seen take a penalty. Atleast we didm’t lose. PHEW.
    Also i am very disappointed with Tiote, his persona we have created about him being like Mr T and a beast. But he actually did go down so late after the slap on his CHEST not face from sessegon. Lost a bit of respect for him but of course still love him to bits. COME ON NEWCASTLE.

  • 748 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:44 PM

    ———————————————————-

    What service has he had???
    He’s new to the league and needs time to settle into the club and get used to the pace and physicality of it.
    But most of all he needs service.
    Striker can’t score if they don;t have the ball

  • 749 Rotonda heights // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:44 PM

    TDS

    If it’s one thing, well 2 things that shola does, is score pens and against the mackems.

  • 750 MUTINYbyLEMONS // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:45 PM

    HBA was brilliant. Some of the skills he did were sublime. I hope he gets a run in the first XI, 6 or 7 games, show us what he can do. He showed us a lot today and should start.

  • 751 toonking // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:46 PM

    NAM 728
    demba might show nothing but he is still learn about this league and also if we drop him who is there to bring in apart from good impact sub poor starter ameobi.
    basically it is only the wide men and CM we are able to swap right now.

  • 752 ToonDownSouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:47 PM

    Someone further up ^^^ compared Cisse to Andy Cole, and I think that may be a good comparisson.

    Although Cole used to take 20 chances to bury 1.

    W@nker

  • 754 JackButler // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:47 PM

    jesperfuglsang – Agree mate, our tactics for the first half and against Wolves was to lump the ball over our midfield to Ba and Cisse, we had no width at all and we simply bypassed Cabaye who created more goals in France last season than anyone else.
    When we play the ball on the ground we look good as we did in the second half today, but when we lump it forward we are shocking, as we were in the first half.

  • 755 xmindcrimex // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:48 PM

    I was so sure that Shola would be the pen taker, but when I saw Ba I didn’t mind. I don’t think it was a bad pen really. It was more a good save.

  • 756 geoff777 // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:48 PM

  • 757 ToonDownSouth // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:48 PM

    Rotonda

    Yeah I agree of course. I posted about 10 angry rants about how Shola should have taken the penalty, some of which didn’t get posted due to language!

    I’m just trying to rationalise it :(

    Rudy

    p*ss of and EAT HBA HUMBLE PIE you little prat.

    end of.

    Eat humble HBA pie? Which would suggest that I hate HBA and want nothing more than for him to flop? Which would then imply that I have other motives other than the success of NUFC at heart which one could then infer to mean that I am not an actual NUFC supporter but someone who wants nothing more than for HBA to falter and to bugger off. Am I getting picking your comment up right there Gorgonzola?

    If you genuinely believe that then you’re incorrect. All I was saying was for you to grow up and stop calling Pardew “Pardwho”, but after your riposte it is blatantly obvious that you’re unable to grow up just yet, well not until puberty takes hold.

  • 759 Brutooon // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:49 PM

    1) Jonas should be rested
    2) I do agree that WHY do we take off Santon? Sunderland didnt make a single attack at his side
    3) I got a feeling AP will keep Raylor every match due to his freekicks specialist. Maybe put him Right Back?
    4) HBA should start

  • 760 BringBackTav // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:51 PM

    Here’s the new plan for Arsenal.

    _________Krul____________
    Santon Colo Willo(Perch) Fergie
    ______Tiote Cabaye_______
    Raylor_____BA______Jonas
    __________Cisse_________

    Raylor/Santon and Fergie/Jonas can interchange and when we bring on HBA at halftime(I don’t think his stamina allows for 90) we win.

    We go hard for Hiolett in the summer, get a CB and we look good in the Prem. A few more additions and EUROPE.

  • 761 Tommyy // Mar 4, 2012 at 2:51 PM
