Papiss Cisse’s 47th minute opening goal, his first in the Premier League this season, was not enough to get Newcastle anything out of the game last night as late goals from Jon Walters and substitute Cameron Jerome gave Stoke a rather lucky win, and handed Newcastle another devastating defeat – the fourth in a row in the league.
Cheick Tiote – win will come soon enough
Newcastle have won just one of our last nine league games, and that was the lucky win at home to West Brom when Papiss Cisse put the ball into the back of the net three minutes into injury time with his behind.
But Cheick Tiote says while the lads are disappointed they are determined to turn things around, as he had this to say on the Newcastle web-site:
“This was so difficult for the team to take.” “We played well and were the better team on the pitch. We tried to pass the ball well and scored the first goal, but after that we were unlucky because it was two sloppy goals that cost us the game.”
“Everyone is very disappointed, but we were much brighter than we have been recently and had more energy on the pitch.” “If you play well like we did, then you expect to win the game, so if we continue to play like this, we will get three points again very soon.”
It’s very important the players keep the faith, as well as the fans, as we try to turn this very bad situation around, but hope springs eternal and we can see ourselves out of this current difficultly – if the lads keep playing like they did last night.
