Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In 2-1 Defeat To Reading


Reading FC

For the second home game in a row Newcastle couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead, and went down to Reading, who are now only two points behind Newcastle, and this was a shock result and puts Newcastle deep into relegation trouble.

And Alan Pardew will take some criticism for substituting some of our better players, as he was holding out for a win, and that never works – and it didn’t this afternoon.

If we cannot beat a side at home who are only one of four teams below us in the league – after being 1-0 up – then who can we beat – and we now think Alan Pardew is under severe pressure at Newcastle, with the emphasis on severe.

This was probably Newcastle’s worst result of the season, and we don’t think Mike Ashley is going to stand by and see the team relegated for the second time in four years.

Bow all we need is t lose Colo on Monday.

You talk about doom and gloom – this was simply a terrible and unacceptable result.

    I’ve been saying all season pardew could take us down and I’ve been ridiculed by Ian Toon, Tequila, Ruddy, Manxpie, even Ibiza.

    Well no more please gents as you will just lose all remaining credibility supporting this one man car crash.

    This was at home with more or less a full side out against the team with the worst away record in all 4 divisions!!! 2 wins in 18 that’s half a season!

    I enjoyed the first half and I really hoped he wouldn’t just try and protect a 1-0 lead but true to form first perch for marv and then bigi for cabs, absolute pig ignorant lunacy and lose all momentum and initiative.

    Pardew is an arrogant, pig headed, stubborn , clueless, sleaze. PARDEW OUT!!

    Get the fcuk out of our club pardew, I was wishin some lads would storm the pitch after the game and stab him putting him out of our misery. Takin marveux off for perch was a defensive move at one nil up when we should have been pushin for a second. But taking off cabaye at 1-1, our best player in a game we need to win.Tactics of a moron. Unforgivable, it took just 5 seconds of this game for me to laugh, we played two passes and after 5 seconds federici had the ball, the hoofball is ridiculous. I dont care if we get relegated, i dont care if we lose 48 nil to villa, whatever it takes to get pardew out. It’ll be better for us in the long run. But it wont be Pardew out will it? Over the next couple of transfer windows t’ll be colo, benny, santon, krul.. Replaced with what? GTFO NOW u pr1ck. Save Our Souls sent out to Laurant Blanc, Ole Gunar Solsjkaer, Roberto Di Matteo or Paulo Di Canio. Im fully behind the players, and always will be but its gettin very very hard to watch this happenin to NUFC

    I just can’t even understand why he does these stupid things.

    Why the hell do Ameobi and Jonas start so much? Why would we play 4-4-2 despite Ba leaving?
    Why would he be THAT defensive and negative?
    Why hoof HOOF HOOF HOOF despite the players we have?
    Why do we have to be a joke of a club because of that ridiculous 8 year contract?!?!

    I can only think that Marv and Cabaye were injured? What other reason can there be other than lunacy? An why not bring obertan on first, not his biggest fan but his pace is a good outlet at 70 mins.

    Should of been obertan for Jonas and Saylor for Willo at 70 mins.

    1st half we were decent, Debuchy offered more in that half than Simpson has in an entire season going forward.

    Saylor in for Wilo please vs Villa, Obertan in for Jonas.

    There must be a winger out there for about 5mill that we can bring in so Jonas doesn’t have to keep playing.

    If Mbiwa signs tempted to say stick him at left back and let Santon and Debuchy be a combo down the right wing.

    Pardew has to go!!! Awful tactical decisions…..Marveaux off, Perch on, Cabaye off….Bigirimana on. Awful!!! No more excuses, no more lets get behind Pardew, he has to go. He cant motivate the players and he doesnt make good tactical choices!!

    Playing sh1t Shola in a wide right of a 3 behind Cisse ??? What is he thinking!!!

    Is Ashley really willing to lose all that tv money next season? He has to get rid of Pardew and invest now!!

    PARDEW OUT!!

    Pardew tactics to basically want to sit behind the ball with the subs of James perch on for Marv and more terribly bigi on for cabaye was THE reason we lost. Even after the equalizer it was an insult to the fans in the freezing cold and in my case up at two in the morning whatching to put on another defensive midfielder and take off the life blood of our attacks. I can’t understand pardews tactics and neither can anyone else including his own players. Shola Gutierrez and Williamson must be shipped out immediately! And new players must be bought. Get Pardew Out! Hopeless and insulting to us week in, week out! Mike get your wallet out and let’s do some spending!

    I don’t usually post after games because everyones so negative. I’ve tried to support Pardew all season believing we need stability. But … what were those subs all about? he lost us that game trying to defend a 1 – 0. The best form of defense is attack. If we have the ball then they don’t. The last thing we want to do is get behind the ball and try to defend a 1 – 0 with 30mins to go with a nervy team / crowd.

    PARDEW YOU C**NT.

    Rotonda

    I didn’t ridicule you, I disagreed with you, there is a slight difference.

    I agree that the tactical decisions cost us massively in this game but in my view we never should have been in that situation. We should have been 3-0 up by half time making any tactical decisions pretty much null and void, I am not making excuses for him because he mucked up big time but shoddy finished and dreadful defending also played their part.

    I won’t advocate sacking him because instability at this time could really backfire but I am very deflated, as the rest of you guys probably are too.

    Never been so angry with football. Great 1st half, best 45 mins we’ve played in ages, then as soon as the 2nd half started we were negative. Once again we try to defend a 1-0 lead when we’re playing well enough to be 2 or 3 ahead. Then it all goes down the pan. Terrible subs, negative tactics. I’m not calling for Pardew to be fired but he seriously needs to wake up now. Taking Marv and Cabs off completely cut Cisse’s service, then when he did get a chance he wasted it after playing so well 1st half. Gutting. And how did Willo manage to get ahead of his man but miss the ball? Two horrendous individual mistakes but for me the man who lost that game is Pardew. I’m gutted, furious and terrified of relegation.

    MOTM Cabaye. Colo was great, Marv did well and Cisse had a good 1st half but needs to stay onside. Debuchy and Santon were good going forward but not so great defensively, esp. the latter.
