Penalty Misery For Magpies Last Night


Holland are ranked fourth in the latest FIFA rankings and Northern Ireland are ranked 100th.

Note that’s Newcastle target  Ibrahim Affelay in the picture

So we suppose it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Holland thrashed  Northern Ireland 6-0 and they were 4-0 up at half time.

Shane Ferguson started the game for Northern  Ireland and the Dutch were already two goals up in the 27th minutes when Shane Ferguson gave away a penalty when he was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area.

Robin van Persie scored from the spot and the Dutch ended up thrashing the visitors at the sold-out Amsterdam ArenA.

That was Shane’s third cap and he seems to have almost become a regular under new manager Michael O’Neill, who admitted his inexperienced side were no match for the country who were only beaten in extra time in the final of the World Cup in South Africa two years ago.

And Newcastle target Ibrahim Afellay played for Holland in the game, and he is shown congratulating van Persie in the picture above.

Here’s the goals from that game, although it doesn’t show Shane’s hand ball:

Senegal beat Liberia 3-1 in Dekar, but they had to come form behind after only two minutes and then Newcastle super-striker and Senegal captain Papiss Cisse missed a penalty after just 10 minutes.

But then the Senegal side – Demba Ba is not in the squad for these games – came back and equalized through Brahmani Balde in the 32nd minute, before Dame N’Doye and Sadio Mane added goals late in the game, to give Senegal a much needed win in their first qualifying game for the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

The World Cup qualifying for African teams has them split into 10 groups, and the group winners qualify for the next stage, and there will be five teams that finally make it to the World Cup finals in two years time.

Here’s the highlights of that game plus Cisse’s miss, and the Liberia goalkeeper had the cheek to even save his follow-up shot, after he had parried the penalty.

    Imagine, one CB, one RB/LB and one RW/Striker, plus 8-10 youngsters in with the Clyne/Abeid/Vuckic mold…
    I’d say that’s a pretty damn optimistic future.

    Only 18 though. He might come up for them in a couple of seasons. He might have been playing well for their reserves already. I really don’t know.

    Cwarr….From previous thread…Might as well cash in on Pardew and Carr too?

    Everyone seems extremely deflated. Is it football fans in general or are the Geordies being hit the hardest?

    If people don’t start cheering up I’m going to have to return to my optimistic moniker…..

    @cwarr
    He was called Remy something, not to be confused with Streete tho. He plays 1st team footy now i heard.
    Situ…Obviously a reason for why weren’t going over the odds for him, so Swans got him.
    Now look what happened… Another good decision so far.

    It’d be hard for a 20 year old centre half to walk into any premiers team. If that was his reasoning he’s foolish.

    Situ made the bench a number of times for Swansea last season; he was on it against us when we won 2-0 at the Liberty. To be honest though as cwarr said he’s not very experienced at 20 so probably needs to go to a League 1 or Championship side to get some games. He only ever appeared once for the Lens 1st team.

    @offthelinebydabizas (fable name by the way). I think we’d still secure top 6.

    offtheline….Welcome.

    Firstly, what makes you think you’d be ganged up on? 😉

    I think if we keep the current team and just add new youngsters we will struggle somewhat. Last season we only had PL to concentrate on. There was no cup run and no Europe. It will take it’s toll imo.

    I would think we could shoot top 8 and a run in either a cup or Europa.
