Newcastle Humiliated – Beaten 7-3 At Arsenal


arsenal-fc-crest

Newcastle have now conceded 11 goals in their last two games, after leaking 7 goals at Arsenal today – and six of those goals were conceded in a short 39 minutes in the second half, after the scores were level at 1-1 at the half, and if there is any doubt where Newcastle’s Achilles heel is – there should be no doubts after this – and we need to very quickly bring in some defenders before we are trapped in an all out relegation struggle.

Newcastle again scored three goals today, as we did at Manchester United on Wednesday, but for the second away game running we scored three goals, and yet got nothing at all out of this game, and since November we have now lost seven of our last nine league games and in the last 11 league games we have a partly 7 points – worse than relegation form to be sure.

But Newcastle showed fight today, and while we were ahead three times at Manchester we were behind three times in this game, but came back to tie the scored at 3-3 after 69 minutes when Demba Ba scored his second after Sylvain Marveaux had scored Newcastle’s second goal.

For Arsenal Theo Walcott scored a hat-trick, with other goals from Giroud (2), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski as Arsenal tore apart the Newcastle defense in the last six minutes scoring three times after the score had been close at 4-3.

And in injury time Giroud hit the bar after 94 minutes, otherwise Newcastle could have leaked eight goals in this game.

But on this showing Newcastle need to rebuild their defense, and it’s simply not up to scratch, and remember we don’t have many excuses because only Steven Taylor is missing from the best defense we can field since early November.

Rather than describe each of the goals, which is very painful, since we conceded seven today, the video highlights of each goal are below.

We should stop using excuses for our injured players too, and we need to pick up points right now, otherwise we are going to be in serious trouble come May – Newcastle were humiliated in the last ten minutes in the game at the Emirates this afternoon and it was so painful to watch – we defended like schoolboys at the end (apologies to schoolboys everywhere) – and Alan Pardew and the coaches have a lot to do to get the lads ready for a tough game against Everton on Wednesday night.

Newcastle will have to defend a lot better in that game, otherwise we could see ourselves third bottom of the league after the game, since at the moment we are only three points ahead of third bottom Southampton, and our goal difference is now a terrible -11, exactly the same as Southampton’s.

It’s not panic stations yet – but it will get that way if we continue to lose the next few games – and finally – it’s never been easy to support Newcastle, but we should try to keep our spirits up – and a win against Everton would be great.

Try to keep the faith – there have to be better times ahead.

That’s true isn’t it? 😀

Here are the goals.

Teams:

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Oxlade-Chamberlain (Giroud 74), Cazorla (Coquelin 86), Podolski (Ramsey 82); Walcott.
Subs (not used): Mannone (gk), Djourou, Rosicky, Gervinho.

Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Krul; Simpson (Ferguson 82), Coloccini, Perch, Santon; Bigirimana (Shola Ameobi 82), Tiote; Cisse, Marveaux (Tavernier 88), Obertan; Ba.
Subs (not used): Harper (gk), Abeid, Streete, Sammy Ameobi.

    7-3 is fck disgrace. I pity the fans who made the long 200 mile trip there. defense is pathetic. Getting fck paid so much and this is the commitment shown.
    May be we are a wee club with totally disenchanted fans who think their team will give their best.

    i think you pardew fans are missing the point here

    we know what team we have, and we know the injuries, the problem didnt start at man u, the problem started the first game of the season, he played very defensivly with our first choice team, we could and should have won more games than we have villa 1-1 swansea 0-2 reading 2-2 west ham 0-1
    these games where our points, home games against teams you have to win
    playing defensivly against these teams has cost us now,

    i find it strange why he goes defensively against poor team or teams he should beat, and the against man u and arsenal go out on the attack.. its madness,, and even more mad to play a high line against wollcot,,

    sorry the damage was done weeks ago,, it hasnt happend over night

    Watching the 1st half, I thought we’d get 3 points here. Tiote has become arrogant and needs to go back to what made him great. I feel sorry for our youngsters; what kind of education is this?

    Graham Carr has found some real gems over the past few years, but he really needs to find at least two defenders that Ashley is prepared to pay for or we will be in serious trouble

    The way some of you are rambling reminds me of myself on a quiet day.

    Try and give up NUFC I dare you. I tried, but it’s in your heart.

    We are fcuked though, been saying it for a long time.

    We will not be able to attract Remy, Sakho etc… and neither do we have the owner to back the team.

    I fear the worse.

    Can’t blame Pardew lads.
    This is on Ashley and Llambias, with the right investment we’d be fine. I’m absolutely gutted.
    Starting to wonder whether I should’ve bought an Everton home ticket considering I live in Bristol and it’s about a six hour journey…

    Catchy….very true. Pardew has to take the blame for our games earlier in the season. Reading away, west ham at home, Swansea at home, villa at home. Fulham away. We played hoof ball against these teams and played into their hands.
    Yes we can say we’ve played well against top teams, but we’ve played poorly against poor teams and got the same result.

    What the hell have they been doing in training this week?! Did they learn nothing from the Man Utd match? Our defending desperately needs work on because it’s not just individuals we’re defending badly as a team.

    Catchy
    Surely this result shows you why we’ve been setting up defensivley ffs? You wanted him to show some guts and drop jonas and go more offensive thats what has happened and look what happens to our back 4 when there not being babysat, they got torn apart!
    I’d happily see all four replaced atm like!

    Because he told our defenders to stop letting in goals then we shipped another 4? Thus it is his fault

    Challenge accepted. I’ve tried giving up before, but the heart overrides the rationale – not this time.

    It’s a pursuit I no longer gain pleasure from, even when things are going well. I’ve got other things going on.

    Take care and good luck NUFC. I’m going cold turkey!

    I agree that investment in new recruits is needed. However, I think the bigger problem in lack of organization at the back. This is the same back four as last year’s game at Chelsea where the back line was one of the most solid I’d seen wearing black and white in many a year (I don’t watch Juventus). It seems like there just isn’t an emphasis as much on the back four this season. If we buy new recruits, but the organization and effort is not there, we will continue to leak. This is down to Pardew, not Ashley and Llambias.

    Why Pardew changed our formation from the second half of last season if beyond me. Ba on the left, Cisse through the middle and Benny on the right worked for us

I bloody hate Manchhester united they always have an excuse!

    We need a CB & RB desperately in January. All focus must be put on getting them.
    Knowing us though we’ll either sign nobody or just Remy when as we can all see our attack is looking good. SORT THAT DEFENCE OUT!

    come on man

    reading and villa are down at the bottom,, should we not have attacked them more?

    at the start of the season,, if you check the teams line ups,, i have,, you will find that the team was pretty much the same as last year,,

    ba moved to center,, cabaye tiote and jonas DMC hoofing the ball over there heads,,

    if pardew has his 2nd choice MF passing the ball more now,, why could we not do it then,, HBA and CABAYE are 2 of the best in the prem

    pardew has dug a huge hole for us

    All dismal defensive performances
    We simply haven’t improved.
    We’ve stayed the same as last season.
    All because we have needed two quality backs and probably need three.

    Unlike me to agree but Kets first comment after the final whistle was spot on.

    Said it on last blog – we have lost 7-2 to Man U, 8-1 to West Ham,and 6-2 to Man U at home – the last result was when Sir Bobby Robson was manager.
    Man U lost 5-0 to us – and went on to win the league, I believe. Arsenal got hammered 8 -something last season, I think??
    Sh*t happens – let’s stay behind the team – and remember we have Williamson back on Wednesday! At least he can’t take the blame for today’s defending!!
