Yanga-Mbiwa Starts In Very Strong Newcastle Side

7:03 pm, Thursday, February 14th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 440 Comments

Metalist Kharkiv

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will make his full debut at right back for Newcastle United in tonight’s Europa League game against Metalist Kharkiv of the Ukraine at St. James’ Park.

This is almost as strong a side as Alan Pardew can start – in fact for players those who are eligible to play the Newcastle manager has selected his strongest side – and that’s good.

You just have to look at the bench – Rob Elliot, Danny Simpson, Massadio Haidara, James Perch, Vurnon Anita, Sylvain Marveaux, Shola Ameobi – to see what a really strong squad Newcastle now have.

Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote are in central filed for Newcastle and apart from the ineligible Mathieu Debuchy and Yoan Gouffran – who is injured at the moment – this is the strongest side Newcastle can field – with Ben Arfa still out injured.

Teams:

Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Mapou Yanga Mbiwa, Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Davide Santon; Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye; Gabriel Obertan, Moussa Sissoko, Jonas Gutierrez; Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Danny Simpson, Massadio Haidara, James Perch, Vurnon Anita, Sylvain Marveaux, Shola Ameobi

Metlaist Kharkiv – 4-2-3-1): Olexandr Goryainov; Cristian Villagra, Papa Gueye, Marco Torsiglieri, Fininho; Edmar, Juan Manuel Torres; Marlos, Cleiton Xavier, Jose Ernesto Sosa (c); Jonathan Cristaldo
Substitutes: Vladimir Disljenkovic, Andriy Berezovchuk, Oleg Shelayev, Sebastian Blanco, Jaja, Oleg Krasnopyorov, Willian

Referee: Tom Harald Hagen (Norway)

    Strong team. Looks promising.

    Howay the lads.

  • 2 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:04 PM

    Why does Pardew insist on playing players out of position???

    Something I simply can’t understand myself

  • 3 toon1707 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:06 PM

    Looks like we are going to get a good win tonight so that we don’t have to risk many of our purple players a few days before the saints game

  • 4 rainrix // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    Would’ve started marv or anita in place of jonas but whatever i suppose. Thats likely the strongest defence we’ve had in a looooong time.

  • 5 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    For god sake. Why is Danny Simpson even on the bench. He should be playing league one football by now. I’d rather lose Pardew than potentially lose Marveaux and Anita. I can’t understand why he keeps leaving them out.

  • 6 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    Right then, I’ll leave you lads to it.

    Pardew Out!

    HWTL

  • 7 Mister Tuff // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:09 PM

    Why oh why does Percy persist with Obertan -he will never make the grade. Probably because he was solely responsible for signing him.

  • 8 mattnufc // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    Probably the strongest team that could have played.
    Looking forward to it!

  • 9 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    We have tiote cabaye and colocinni in same team for second time this season…and even on the last time it lasted half hour when tiote got sent off.

  • 10 santonthenewmaldini // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    Apart from Obertan that is a near full strength line up!!

    What has Anita done wrong though as cant understand how he cant get back into the team?!?

    Just hope Obertan has been watching how Gouffran plays as thats the standard that he needs to reach now to get back into the fold

  • 11 darrenfletcher88 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    Kets it’s not football manager son,please be quiet u complete arse hole!!!

  • 12 francesco-hba // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:12 PM

    I dont understand why Pardew wants Mbiwa playing rightback… i could have try a new central duo in this type of game, and could have try Haidara left side and santon right side

    and give a Jonas a breath, he cant play every 3 days…

    other thing, i saw everywhere that Gouffran will be back in training on Monday, but yesterday i saw this video where we can see him in Metalist’ pretraining, so is he already back? the video’title talk about Ben arfa, but I didn’t find him on the video :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO6kceCW2LI&feature=youtu.be&a

  • 13 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:12 PM

    Really curious what Anita did to get dropped so abruptly. He should be getting the start it seems to me. And interested to see how Obertan does tonight, hope he can be something of a factor as he usually isn’t.

  • 14 obatoyou // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:12 PM

    Thanks Ibiza for the link~

  • 15 Jonas's better than Messi // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Competition for places … tough on Anita but if he steps up and trains hard he might get a chance as sub to claim his shirt back.

    Good team, I expected Saylor and Santon to be benched.
    Let’s hope we can score a few.

    HWTL

  • 16 northernirishtoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Think obertan has put in some decent displays in Europe and think he will do well 2nite. Like for like with him for goofy

  • 17 northernirishtoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    Only not as good

  • 18 Twatter // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    Pardew picks probably the strongest line up yet in the Europa League and people are still only finding complaints.

    Come on now.

  • 19 nick_9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    I make that one full back? Who is playing right back? Mbiwa, Taylor or Jonas? Little bit perplexed that Marv and Anita haven’t been selected but I’m guessing they will play a part. I don’t think Jonas offers enough either, sooner Benny is back the better.

  • 20 spitfire_ // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    Could 3-5-2 be on agenda?

  • 21 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:15 PM

    Why the hell is mbiwa playing fcuking RB? Wherea the point in signing a £8 mil CB and using him at RB? Seriously? Its fcuking baffling!

  • 22 Jonas's better than Messi // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:15 PM

    f-hba

    Gouffran might be doing light non-contact training atm.

  • 23 nick_9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    Twitter Pardew can never win really, I don’t think he has I’ve picked the eleven I would haha. Pretty strong line up but Jonas has poor service and obertan is hit and miss, not ideal wheel your main striker needs a few chances to score now.

  • 24 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    What is his mans fascination with jonas, marv n anita cant get a start, its a decent team apart from jonas, sick of looking at the kid, pissed off again, is he not allowed to be rested, looking forward to the game, team selection again has question marks.

  • 25 nick_9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    Damn phone. Not ideal*

    Not long now until kick off, hope we can win and keep a clean sheet.

  • 26 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:18 PM

    M’biwa can play anywhere along the back line as well as cdm.

  • 27 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:19 PM

    Kharkiv play a high line so we need pace to exploit that, but, although Obertan has the pace, he has little else.

    And has Anita punched Pardew in face and we simply don’t know about it??? Shame he hasn’t been so eager to drop one or two other’s this season

  • 28 Twatter // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:20 PM

    He plays at rightback, he has done many many times.

    Get a grip! Learn something about the players we sign before you claim he’s playing Mbiwa oput of position.

    Call Pardew out for playing Gutierrez if anything, but give him credit where it’s due. This is a strong line-up, FFS.

  • 29 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:21 PM

    I bet Anita wishes he’d stayed at Ajax right about now. Guy plays his heart out when the rest of the team was playing like sh*t and he gets dropped ? . Where is the loggic in that ?

  • 30 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:22 PM

    Mbiwa can play at right-back, but his natural position is at centre back. He’ll be slashed off playing out there. God knows why Pardew’s put Obertan and Gutierrez in the team when we’ve got players like Marveaux and Anita on the bench. Maybe he wants less ability but more physical presence?

    I’m losing patience with Pardew. If we don’t finish at least mid-table and don’t get to at least the quarter finals of the europa cup, I want Pardew terminated with Sven Goran Eriksson coming in to replace him.

  • 31 toonbrother // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:23 PM

    pardew’s overburdening cabaye again. Watch him have a stinker this weekend. moron of a manager

  • 32 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:24 PM

    Kets – can you not see the benefit of playing Obertan with his pace against a Metalist side who keep a high line?

    Also Yanga has played many times at RB so can play there. Althought I would prefer him at centre half.

    Who do you think from the Metalist side is going to “slash” Yanga playing at right back? Just out of interest?

  • 33 toonbrother // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:24 PM

    dumb as they come pardew.

  • 34 Dannyo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    Any streams good folk?

  • 35 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    He will do owt to fit jonas in, makes me puke does pardew, no campbell again in the squad why not rest perch out of the squad, ideal situation to get other players involved, he just bugs the hell out of me, bloody picking his boyfriends again.

  • 36 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    Twatter

    He may have played at right back many times but it’s not his natural/best position, Jonas has played there plenty as well and i wouldn’t want to see him there either.

  • 37 francesco-hba // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    twatter, i’m french and i follow the ligue 1

    i can tell you that at Montpellier or in FRance ‘squad, Mbiwa has quite never playing right back. And, if i think he could play here, its another thing to have bought a CB when you have bought already a RB(debuchy) and have Simpson, Santon (and Tavernier) which can play this role, so its clear that Mbiwa is here to play CB in the future, so why didn’t he set him CB in order to prepare??

  • 38 shearerclass09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    @toonbrother you do know we are not playing this weekend ? we have a break of ten days till our next game,, of course he should play cabbaye ,,hwtl

  • 39 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Toon brother

    Are you going to do this all game long, mate?

    We get you don’t like Pards or rate him, but maybe give him a chance tonight before deciding he is totally incompetent?

  • 40 DaveD1000 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    @ dannyo try this nearer KO

  • 41 Jonas's better than Messi // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:29 PM

    terminated … that’s a bit harsh, he should be made to manage Crystal Palace for eternity.

  • 42 Dannyo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM

    @DaveD
    Cheers mate, not shown anywhere were I am this time :/

  • 43 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM

    Jamiemac
    I know he can, hardly the point so can stevie taylor, the point is he’s not pushing for a spot at fcuking RB so how’s he supposed to show his level and push for first team being played out if position? Its f uking pointless, and why play taylor? We know werw lucky to have him for 8-10 games in a row rest the lad ffs same with jonas

  • 44 magpie6699 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM

    toonbrother – I’m sure Cabaye will have a stinker this weekend through being overburdened – but I’m not sure at what as we don’t have a game! Doooohhh!

  • 45 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    Strong line up.
    Pleased Mbiwa and Obertan getting starts.
    Be interesting to see how Sissoko plays tonight
    Problem is guys on here don’t realise the bench is tactical too – I bet Anita gets a decent run out and Pards needs to keep the whole squad on side. Obertan will run at them and get behind a high line. He backtracks better than Marv imo.
    Guti can be replaced by Marv as impact sub.

    This is real football not some mechanical computer game

  • 46 DaveD1000 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    No worries bud -usually get at least one good link there

  • 47 Bornandraised // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:31 PM

    My thoughts on Pards’ thinking:

    Anita has become Cabaye’s backup and a late-game midfield sub. I reckon Pards won’t ever start Anita and Cabaye together in the center of midfield. As for Marveaux, he has become Sissoko’s backup and a late-game midfield sub. If we started Marveaux instead of Obertan we wouldn’t have any speed on the wings. I can’t explain Pards love for Jonas, but I think once Ben Arfa comes back, Jonas will become his back-up. Pards is probably going to give Mbiwa a couple of games at rightback until he feels comfortable enough,learns English, and understands the team’s positional scheme. I hope and expect Tiote to be brilliant today and for us to absolutely dominate the center of the park. Cabaye wil have plenty of shooting chances today.

  • 48 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Has Anita been porking Pardew’s daughter? He was one of the best players in a successful Ajax team. I’m sure Pardew’s hoping to get fired.

  • 49 Jam only For H.ben Arfa // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    it’s not a strong team, i’m sorry, Attack is poor with this composition !!

  • 50 northernirishtoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Sven goran erikkson lol.

    Kets at his best

  • 51 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    Yoyo – Spot on mate! Just because championship manager says something doesn’t mean it’s gospel.

    Pards see’s the lads in training week in week out…

    And despite what some say on here..he knows more than us! :-)

  • 52 Yorkgeordie // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    Can’t understand why people want Anita and Marveaux in the team. Surely the reason we are in the league position we are in is because we had to play them. Surely the reason we have brought in new players is so that we can drop Anita and Marveeaux.

  • 53 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    K9

    Suggesting Pards is ‘terminated’ is a bit extreme even for you.
    Sacking him wouldn’t run the risk of a life sentence

  • 54 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:34 PM

    yet gain the build up to a game spoilt by this manager can we win, yes. but we have players desperate for playing time and he wont give the mins on the pitch, anxiety plus is the fella. honestly pardew out get back down the smoke.

  • 55 Bornandraised // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:36 PM

    For those ranting about Obertan and Jonas, if Gouffran had been healthy it would have been Gouffran and Marveaux instead of them too.

  • 56 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    Yorkgeordie // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    Can’t understand why people want Anita and Marveaux in the team. Surely the reason we are in the league position we are in is because we had to play them. Surely the reason we have brought in new players is so that we can drop Anita and Marveeaux.
    —————————————————————————

    With that logic the whole team deserve’s to be dropped as they’ve all been very poor this season. Anita and Santon have been the only two who can hold their heads high

  • 57 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    beefman

    I’m amazed you already know who is and who isn’t going to get playing time as subs.
    Leave the criticism till after the match – unless you really want Pardew to resign at half time

  • 58 Markaccus // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    Personally I don’t get why people are up in arms about jonas instead of marveaux. Marveaux has never offered much from a wide position imo, and socks has to play centrally. As for the perch/anita thing, I don’t think that anita has done owt wrong, but then again neither has perch, who deserves his place if you ask me. If anita was to start, id use him from the wide right position, but I can understand why squiddy is playing. Speeeeed.

  • 59 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    Sven’s an excellent club manager and he also did well with England. Didn’t he only lose one game with England? Against Brazil in the quarter final in 2002? Look what he did at Lazio.

  • 60 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:38 PM

    Taylor and Colo are currently our strongest cb pairing so Pardew plays them………………… Then gets criticised. Everyone saying for days they want a strong team, well this is a strong team and STILL criticising. Get a grip

  • 61 mattnufc // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:38 PM

    Someone should terminate Kets from this blog.

  • 62 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:39 PM

    JB – Marv’s will get battered out there mate! They are a physical and aggressive side and Pards is clearly thinking about the physicality side of tonight’s game.

  • 63 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:39 PM

    Torq
    Nothing to do with football manager mate, but ffs when sign a CB for £8 mil, tell him to earn a spot then play him at RB its a bit stupid tbf, why not play taylor there or simmo and let mbiwa show the manager/club/fans what he’s all about and why he was the captain and mainstay of the french champions back line?

  • 64 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:39 PM

    JB

    Agree.
    I would like Anita and Marv to get game time tonight as fresh legs. You have to have quality on the bench as back up in case of injuries etc.,

  • 65 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:40 PM

    Mark – It’s pre game on a match day…the team has just been released…

    Of COURSE people are up in arms mate!! :-)

    What did you expect from game day on this blog?? :-)

  • 66 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    Jamiemac
    You have no idea of the strongest cb pairing, colo has been poir and the only reason he’s playing is because gor some reason we left him as captain

  • 67 Yorkgeordie // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    just please tell me what Anita has done? How many goals has he scored? how many assists has he made? how many saving tackles has he made?

  • 68 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    TorqToon

    Marv has more than held his own this season, tonight should be no different. My issue with Pardew is that there are certain players that will always start as long as they are fit

  • 69 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:41 PM

    K9

    Sven is just a red herring. Talk sense man

  • 70 Yorkgeordie // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:42 PM

    How many points has he scored for your fantasy football team?

  • 71 Markaccus // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:42 PM

    Marveaux has not developed into the player we hoped for- FACT
    Anita is a fast skillful player, but with no real defined position yet, utility player- FACT
    Perch has been one of our most solid and consistant players since last season- FACT

    (Thought I’d try the Ketsy approach)

  • 72 wingspan // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    Strong team – Pards obviously wants to get the job done tonight so he can rest a few players for the away trip. Its a real long way and just a few days before the southampton match.

    If all goes well tonight i think we will see a few more fringe players next thurs.

    I dont see what the fuss about Anita not playing to be honest, i like the guy and i admire his effort but from what ive seen so far hes struggled with the pace, hes too lightweight and he gives the ball away far too much. Im sure he will come good over time tho.

  • 73 Black and White with an army lol // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    3-0 or 3-1 tonight for the toon iv’e put my bet on for these iv’e got 4-0 and 4-1

  • 74 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    TADS@21- I agree, Pards really seems to like playing folks out of position.

  • 75 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:44 PM

    tads

    I agree. If it were up to me I would have Mbiwa and Taylor as our cb pairing. Mbiwa is still the signing im most excited about. However Colo is our captain and can be brilliant on his day so no chance of him being dropped and Taylor has been outstanding recently so no way hes getting dropped. I have no qualms at all with this team.

  • 76 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:44 PM

    yo-yo

    I don’t understand why someone like Anita, who has been our best player this season is dropped like a stone and Marv who offers far more threat going forward to Jonas is also left out

  • 77 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:44 PM

    Why? People should get terminated from the blog who appear uncouth and use abusive language. What’s wrong with Sven apart from the time when he left Seaman on the bench?

  • 78 wingspan // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:44 PM

    Marv hasnt got the power or pace to play on the wing, hes far better in the number 10 role.

    But are you gonna drop Sissoko for him when we dont have a game at the wknd? Noooooo way!

  • 79 shearerclass09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    Jesus people all he has done is swap our right back for a more than competent player because debushy cant play,, and obetan for a injured player and tiote for perch wich i think we all would of done,, dont forget how well these players have done in the last two games,, cheski 2,1 and tottenham only just lost because of how could bale was,, HWTL

  • 80 TorqToon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    TADS – It actually wasn’t aimed at you mate, and I CAN see what you are saying, however most people on here have never seen Yanga play, so should possibly reserve judgment.

    He has been selected at RB probably to counteract a threat on their part. I believe he is (dare i say) the potential to be our best ever in that position, but he would’ve been out there for a reason mate.

  • 81 Toonbyblood // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:45 PM

    Is there anyway we can bench Ketsbia9 tonight?

    Let’s bring him on for comments when there’s 5 minutes to go and we we’re winning 3-0 : )

    @torq, yes I did expect it, but I hoped…..hoped so much for unity and piece… (Forlorn sigh)

    Also, people moaning about yanga at RB? He’s an accomplished full back, happy to play there as any other defencive position. Personally I think mentalist will find that a terrifying defensive line up!

    Fun fact: Leon Best was often measured at a higher top speed in games than whenever Obertan played along with him.

    It’s true, lol.

  • 89 toonbrother // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:49 PM

    i hold my hands up didnt know we didnt have a game this weekend but i maintain cabaye deserves a rest. We lost HBA to injury in a meaningless tie. Taylor is another injury prone player who;s important to us. Why not rest him and let Simpson play instead especially as we’re still mired in a relegation battle

  • 90 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:50 PM

    Really looking forward to this game, but at the same time very wary of Metalist and their Latino flair, the play good football and retain the ball very well, they will give us a game alright!

    Anzhi Panzhi beat Hannover convincingly which was a bit of a shock (for me anyway), I was kind of hoping for Hannover in the next round, if we get through this tie… I JUST LOVE A GOOD KNOCKOUT TOURNAMENT

    @Markaccus heres a fact for you: anyone who says FACT after expressing what is merely their opinion usually doesn’t know what they are talking about.

  • 93 Marty-Toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:53 PM

    Sven is great at using dosh and lots of it

    Howay the Lads tonight,we need to get right at them and right outa the blocks.
    Anita, is astonishing that he’s not on from the start
    Surely Haidara shoulda got a start too.
    Obertan and Jonas will need to get their fingers out tonight.
    Cisse will score.
    Great team and strong bench,hope no one gets hurt that’s all

    As the only one on here who has been ‘terminated’ – expelled from a blog – don’t tempt fate. Being blog mascot doesn’t excuse all your quirky ramblings and mis-statements. You really do spout some pure drivel at times.

    I bet Mbiwa ain’t complaining about playing at RB – he plays across the back four and is better than starting Simo

  • 95 ryanclarke // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:54 PM

    Maybe hes putting Mbiwa at RB to test his attitude, have any of you walked into a job and became top boy straight away? It takes settling in and to recieve your pay you have to happily do as the manager tells you. Yes its out of position but Pardews also gotta keep happy Collocini who is captain still and also Taylor who hasnt put a foot wrong since hes been back? Hes integrated all of them into the side. Anita and Marv complaints are getting old and people hear the same thing every week, marveaux is very light weight in my eyes and isnt a 90 minute player so why play him in the first half against fresh players and not in the last 30 against tired legs? Wake up and think logically before creating bad press for yourselves and then calling journos for doing the same. You cry stability then want the best manager weve had since Robson sacked for SGE are you for real.

  • 96 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:54 PM

    MARK @83, I agree 100% m8!

    He is accomplished ACROSS the back 4 and DM, his versatility is why we paid so much for him, something we have never had off the top of my head (perch is alright but never in the accomplished category), Colo and Stayls have been impressive together recently, why would folk want to break that up?

    there is no reasoning with some!

    To answer your question from yesterday mate, Maesteg boy :D

  • 98 donkeypunch // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:56 PM

    what channel is the game on

  • 99 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:57 PM

    and for my money, I think Obertoon will turn it on tonight now the pressure is off him.

    When he was at Bordeaux he was an excellent prospect when there was no pressure on him, I think he will be good when there is no real expectation, I’m really liking this starting 11!

  • 100 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:57 PM

  • 101 JTOONJ // Feb 14, 2013 at 7:59 PM

    How any of you comment on yanga being at RB, oh wait his orignal position on fifa is CB. god sake pardew are you not upto date with fifa!!!!

  • 102 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:00 PM

    kets

    ‘What’s wrong with Sven apart from the time when he left Seaman on the bench?’

    should i be reading between the lines with that statement, I know he was a dirty wee man, but thats shocking that he didn’t clean up after himself! lol

  • 103 Mister Tuff // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:01 PM

    Dannyo are you saying Besty was faster than Obertan -when they were both in the same team -couldn’t quite get your drift.

    You obviously missed my point about the whole FACT issue, as I was clearly taking the mick.

    So, you are the one who didn’t know what you were talking about……… FACT

  • 108 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:03 PM

    Howay the lads !

  • 109 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:04 PM

    ryan

    Agree with most of that.
    Its not really out of position foir Mbiwa as he is so accomplished across the back four mind

  • 110 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:04 PM

    I don’t care what people say. Sven’s a legend. Going to be a tough game tonight. Think we’ll be in for a surprise.

  • 111 donkeypunch // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:04 PM

    havent got that is there is there a stream link sombody can send me for the game

  • 112 shearerclass09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:05 PM

    sissoko, mbiwa, and tiote stood together in the middle must freak the other team out when they walk past them three beass lol H W T L

  • 113 warwick // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:05 PM

    id also like to say to those whinging about anita, he was good in a relegation form side, we had to play him.

  • 114 shearerclass09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:06 PM

    ## BEASTS crap phone…

  • 115 toonincheek // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:06 PM

    Obertan can be effective when there is space to counter attack.
    Not likely to see Metalist giving that kind of opportunity.
    They will be playing possession footie, trying to keep the ball and not giving much away.

    I think Anita would be far more effective as we will need to pressure them to get the ball back. That’s what we will need to do.

    Plus – Shola on for the last 30 minutes for a bit more physical pressure than Cisse will give.

  • 116 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:07 PM

    JB

    I’m sure Anita will get playing time tonight and next week. We are nearly in a position to rotate players in a squad system – still a bit short up front. I reckon Anita (who I also rate very highly) will get 30 games + a season. Pards is juggling – not been able to do that much this season.

  • 117 Jamesthefirst // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:07 PM

    its ok got it now thanks

  • 120 Johann // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:10 PM

    My problem is why Steven Taylor is playing so much just after an injury? How will he stay injury free with this load of games?

  • 121 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:11 PM

    Im just dissappointed that Mbiwa doesn’t get his first start in his preferred position. We’ll see how it works out.

  • 122 jeff // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:13 PM

    good play obertan

  • 123 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:17 PM

    Obertan doing well tracking back so far.

  • 124 TheToonKing // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:17 PM

    Good team this Metalist…

  • 125 valle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:20 PM

    frustrating to watch so far… we keep throwing possession away with bad long balls

  • 126 donkeypunch // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:20 PM

    Bullshit!

  • 132 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:29 PM

    Dickhead linesman. He was well on side FFS

    I have had it with Gutierrez like. He can’t even pass a ball these days FFS.

  • 138 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:31 PM

    How in the world was that off side?, He was miles on side… left back was in no man’s land.

  • 139 Markaccus // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:31 PM

    That linesman has cross-eyes ffs!!!

  • 140 donkeypunch // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:32 PM

    Linesman is sh1te.

  • 142 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:33 PM

    tiote in yellow

  • 143 jeff // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:33 PM

    what does tiote do that justifies his start over perch or anita

  • 144 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:34 PM

    Tiote is a donkey

  • 145 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:34 PM

    and that is why I have my doubts on Tiote…

  • 146 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:34 PM

    Well done Tiote. Does this guy think yellow cards are prizes

  • 147 Markaccus // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:34 PM

    F off tiote, just f off. F-ing liability. What a brainless tw@. Nearly cost us a goal too. Bell-end. Just f-off

    Rant over.

  • 148 donkeypunch // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:35 PM

    lol tioti well i think anita fans will be happy hes defo coming on half time

  • 149 drongo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:35 PM

    Santon really doesn’t like to get forward with Obertan in front of him- shame. Really hampered by lack of full back width we had with debuchy and santon raiding forwards

  • 150 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:35 PM

    we should sell tioté he’s a dirty player and concedes possession too often as does every single newcastle player…
    we lack technically gifted players who can actually dribble an opponent
    we’re far from a top side

  • 151 Cisse09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:35 PM

    Is it me or can’t Cisse or Sissoko beat their man .. Would love to see Sissoko’s passing % in this match #shit!

  • 152 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:36 PM

    He’s trading them for cars

  • 154 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    and another chance fluffed.

  • 155 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    Beautiful ball by Cabaye though… Goofy would have loved that.

  • 156 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

    Sissoko has not had very good passing so far at all. Not taht any of them have really. Guti terrible as usual with his passes.

  • 157 jeff // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

    thats why cabaye wouldnt be a good captain

  • 158 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

    cabaye may be one of our best players but he’s just as nsty as tioté!
    shameful

  • 159 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

    I love Cabaye, but the guy has attitude problems like

  • 160 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

    cabs don’t give a f

  • 161 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

  • 162 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:39 PM

    I’m speechless.

  • 163 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:41 PM

    no creativity at all it’s pathetic
    pardew needs to go!
    we need a manager that teaches his team to PASS a ball instead of hoofing it all the time

  • 164 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:41 PM

    guti final ball again !!!

  • 165 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:42 PM

    Decent run from Guti… end product still missing

  • 166 toonbrother // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:42 PM

    what did cabaye do?

  • 167 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:42 PM

    Elbowed the metalist player

  • 168 jeff // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:42 PM

    mbiwa is our best player

  • 169 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    Mbiwa is having a decent game.

  • 170 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    Tiote and cabaye, two of the most stupid yellows av ever seen, get a grip.

  • 171 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    it’s not hard to be the best player today.everyone else is having a nightmare

  • 172 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    we really miss goofy’s constant movement tonight, he is the difference, it seems that it gets everyone going in games of late, no one is really showing for the ball, these guys will just mop all these ‘breaks’ we make up every time, we need some possession and make them work, too early in the game to be trying to break!

  • 173 reccerobbo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:43 PM

  • 174 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:44 PM

    Guti has actually been pretty good.

  • 175 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:44 PM

    taylor always consistent i have to say! he’s not a gifted footballer but at least he’s always committed

  • 176 Krul to be Kind // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    I dont blame guti for that stray pass in the box, the run to space was far too late, lads just don’t look up for it as they have in recent games

  • 177 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    On Cisse last year he missed a few one on ones, he only ever scored tap ins or wonder strikes.

  • 178 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    Cabaye just ran across and elbowed the lad on the neck area, just daft.

  • 179 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    obertan cant cross

  • 180 Cisse09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    We’ve been shite in the final 3rd all season! League position and goals scored prove this! We have a absolute sweet midfield! But the end product.. Has been very poor ‘shooting and crossing! .. I’m sure even RVP. And Rooney would struggle score if they played 4 us!!! Lmfao!

  • 181 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    @Beefman11

    In regards to Tiote… are you really surprised?

    He has gotten stupid yellows so many times in the past.

  • 182 davis_toons // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Look Staylor is winning Headers when Williamson cant.
    But this methods arent working…we haven score a goal since…

  • 183 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Mbiwa and Obertan are having good games so far, lots of bad passing so far though.

  • 184 Markaccus // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Obertan just about the best of our players so far.

  • 185 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Apart from the final ball, Obertan is having an Ok game

  • 186 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:47 PM

    they’re looking threatening down the right

  • 187 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:48 PM

    apart from the final ball means nothing in football…

    Gah sissoko… nice try

  • 189 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    we should win this game i hope pardew thinks the same

  • 190 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    I think when we get set pieces in the future I might just nip to the toilett or get a drink because we are hopeless at them

  • 191 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:51 PM

    Uea jamie, he deserves the freedom of the city for beating a player down the line, playing on the right wing just to fit him in the team, pardew has knocked the confidence of every one of our young players, what sort of manager would do that. Bullshi££ing plonka.

  • 192 davis_toons // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:51 PM

    Sissoko is the only person looks to score for us

  • 193 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    Anita for Tiote and Marv for Jonas at half time, we have no creativity

  • 194 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    That Cristaldo guy sure loves to dive. Lame.

  • 195 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:52 PM

  • 198 fray bentos // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:54 PM

    For anybody having a go a Overtan’s final ball, it was his mint pass that made the goal that should of been

    Also for all you commenting during the game, you total twits, watch the game man

  • 199 true toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:54 PM

    Seriously here’s what NUFC lacks.

    1) a proper Goal scorer . Papiss is seriously not good enough for this season, his confidence is gone and he shld be dropped.

    2) replace Jonas with Anita , for some reason jonas final ball seems to be lacking nowadays. Either put him into defensive duties or bench him

  • 200 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    Forgettable first half even though we should be a goal up

  • 201 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    Oba and Guti playing okay. No complaints.
    Santon looking vulnerable against their RW.
    Mbiwa looking good.
    We could be two up – Poor finish by Cisse second time round.
    We are so close to being a really good side – bit sloppy here tonight so far.
    Good team talk and we’ll be away second half. Marv on for Guti when he tires.
    We do miss Gouffy. Shows how good he’s going to be for us.
    They are there for the taking

  • 202 davis_toons // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    @set peices. We needed to get Big Sam or CH to teach AP a thing or two.

  • 203 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    Strange game..they look like a typical team full of brazilians, knock it around nicely then nothing.

    Sissoko and Cisse linking up very nicely at times, more than he and ba ever did.

    Sissoko defo our biggest threat. Mapou looks quick and good on the ball, not out of place at right back.

  • 204 fray bentos // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    WATCH THE GAME!!!! don’t comment during the game, watch it

  • 205 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:56 PM

    Oh and did i really see jonas drop a shoulder, knock it between two players then run in behind?

    Love seeing him do that!! shame its the first time ive seen it this season.

  • 206 davis_toons // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:57 PM

    …nicely then nothing.?

    Remember the save Kurl made?
    ITs ALMOST A GOAL. We SHOULD BE a GOAL DOWN.

  • 207 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:57 PM

    @ Fray

    Oh sorry for posting my thoughts on an NUFC game. It must have taken a whole 30 seconds of my time to write a couple of posts. How dare I. You might as well have a pop at everyone that went to the toilett during the match

  • 208 Sinner // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:58 PM

    Tiote, Cabaye and Obertan are looking really good but we’re still lacking that creativity in the final third. Jonas has been doing lots of running but still not good enough, he keeps giving the ball away!

  • 209 nick_9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:58 PM

    Learned nothing new that half other than mbiwa has a fair bit of pace about him.

    Hoping for a much better second half, the lack of movement off the ball is similar to what we saw in the first 18 league games. Gouffran has been exceptional for us and were missing him. I think I would probably bring Anita on already for tiote or Jonas. This Metalist don’t look anything special upto now but you can tell they could be dangerous, need a win here really

  • 210 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:58 PM

    Pheonix, i have seen that so many times with both cabaye and mote so with tiote and perch who got booked in his first 7 games and is no angel, he should not be in the squad tonite for this game, why the hell no Campbell weve seen shol bloody ameobi a million times, i have nor ever known a manager favour seniors over younger players as much S PArdew, he is a one man soul destroyer.

  • 211 fray bentos // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:59 PM

    Your probably the worst offender today

    You probably only watch the game when its in either final third

  • 212 Geordiedoonsooth // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:59 PM

    I’m sure most of the people who come on here aren’t real NUFC fans all they do is on plain an shout Pardew out. FFS support the team you bunch of w*nkers

  • 213 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 8:59 PM

    What’s your issue Fray? Can you not do two things at once and are jealous?

  • 214 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:00 PM

    Well yes they didnt score one on one.

    Should be a goal down…well cisse missed one on one, we had a rightful goal dissallowed…if we are living in should be land we are winning.

  • 215 Geordiedoonsooth // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:00 PM

    Meant complain

  • 217 Mister Tuff // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:01 PM

    They all look tidy on the ball. We are playing poorly -seems that we do not want to commit too much going forward.
    As for Obertan playing well apart from final ball —–EH WHAT.
    Note Football tip for you netball players: it’s the final ball that counts.

  • 218 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:01 PM

    Oh and sissoko really doesnt like his left peg….still looks class tho.

    I see we have aimed a couple of freekicks towards a sole player at the side of the box again, because it worked so well for us before haha. Fingers crossed for a Nufc goal or two and an injury and suspension free night

  • 220 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:02 PM

    Was just going to get another beer from the fridge, just wantrd to know if that was ok or not :)

    good morning lads.

    great day to be unemployed, if the toon don’t win i’m staying in bed.

    thanks for the feed links

    some of us have mastered the art of keeping more than one window open

  • 225 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:04 PM

    I think we’ve done enough so far, but we do miss another few strikers. Keeping Ba and signing Remy would’ve been the icing on the cake. Gutierrez has beat a few players, as has Obertan, but their final balls are shocking. Cisse looks okay. Sissoko’s doing well. I’d put Anita on for Tiote and Marveaux on for either Jonas or Obertan.

  • 226 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:04 PM

    It’s streaming on my computer Fray, it’s possible to have 2 windows open at once.

  • 227 fray bentos // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    Notice how the main offenders are the same idiots who are incapable of having balanced views, probably becuase cos you don’t watch the game and only ball watch

    Speak to the person next to you, ffs

  • 228 northernirishtoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    All there chances coming from santon. Caught out of position a few times 2nite.

  • 229 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    I would not be ar all surprised if perch comes on second half! Im starting to wonder if we do really want to go further in this compitition, if we scrape through here anzhi will be odds on to beat us. And i dont think the manager will blink an eye if we go out i think he full of crap.

  • 230 LGFUAD21 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    Letting them play to their plan,

    We will find it hard to beat them at their place so we should be going for it with our pace not letting them keep their shape at the back,

    We knew fore the game that they are strong defensively.

    Tiote needs to be playing his passes earlier. Anita would’ve been a better shout. He’s mobile and pushes the team up. Got pace to close their counters down too.

    Watching cisse is painful. Can’t play off the shoulder, no composure on the ball in 1 on 1.

    Would rather play obertan up front. Better at taking the ball down. Would be better at playing off the shoulder.

    Cisse is a poacher that doesn’t want to challenge for balls. He’s redundant ATM.

  • 231 Slatymag // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    I might be in the minority here but I reckon this is going ok. They have had a few good chances, as have us, but thus far neither side has been too clinical. A little bit more composure, from either side, and we’ll see some goals. Hopefully from us. HWTL.

  • 232 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    @ Fray

    Slightly hypocritical don’t you think ? . Back to the game I think we will win 2-0 Cisse and Sissoko to score HWTL

  • 233 Robby Bobson // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:06 PM

    See chelseas goal…kinky stuff.

  • 235 fray bentos // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:06 PM

    Gonna go watch the game

  • 236 santonthenewmaldini // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:07 PM

    We look toothless we are nice passing team right up to the final 3rd and then we struggle to make the right pass or cross it

    Corners have been shocking how can we not just whip it in with pace just near the keeper??can never score from 18 yards out!!

    Anita would be perfect in this game as he will bring pace and quick passing and movement

    Tiote has done everything that annoyed me about him in that 1st half before he went away to Africa his form has not picked up at all that yellow card was stupid

    In fact when you have Tiote, Jonas and Obertan making forward passes its no wonder we are struggling

    For our team to evolve properly there cannot be a starting place for Tiote and Jonas yes they are great when your backs are against the wall but we want to move on from that and impose ourselves and dominate teams

    No doubt there will be people replying going Tiote has been world class etc well he has been as a tackler but never on the ball he is always poor in possession we cant break teams down when he is on the ball

  • 237 Mister Tuff // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:07 PM

    The master plan of getting a good lead in this game with a strong team and then playing a weaker team next week does not appear to be working —so far.

  • 238 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:08 PM

  • 239 Marty-Toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:09 PM

    some great long passes from cabs but we do need another playmaker

  • 243 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:11 PM

    Just saying it now. Wouldn’t be surprised it Tiote got a second yellow >.>

  • 244 Marty-Toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:13 PM

    Any chance that someone could teach Cisse the offside rule???

  • 245 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:14 PM

    We are devoid of creativity, and is any wonder we don’t score from set pieces as the quality of crosses is woeful

  • 246 dannyboy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:15 PM

  • 248 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:15 PM

    Glad too see cisse and tiote carrying on there fine form
    Vs southampton i’d personally like too see them both on the bench vs southampton goofy up top and anita or MYM in CDM

    Cant see how else to shock these lads into showing some sort of form

    Get tiote off the dam pitch.

  • 251 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:17 PM

    Get Tiota off drop Sissoko back and bring Marv on FFS

  • 252 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:17 PM

    tiote should quit football and go play rugby or something

  • 253 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:17 PM

    Tiote’s next foul will probably be another yellow. If Pardew was smart he would replace him with Anita

    I can not agree with you more!. Goofy feeding off Sissoko/cabaye through balls is mouth watering.

    Goofy also knows how to make an intelligent run.
    Been saying this since Tiote came back from ACON. He should not be ahead of Anita or perch

  • 270 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:22 PM

    @Yo-yo

    I’ve seen arguments from other fans stating Tiote can offer more then Perch as a DM.

    I’ve yet to see that… after all.. Perch knows how to actually tackle!, one of the more important parts of being a DM when breaking up play.

  • 271 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:23 PM

    sissoko is playing poorly today so anyone saying he’s the only positive is deluded!

  • 272 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:23 PM

    We can slag off Cisse all day long but he hasn’t one quality ball played into him all bloody night.
    Sissoko isn’t in the game, Obertan and Jonas are simply shocking and Tiote is a red card in waiting

  • 273 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:23 PM

    TADS once again I gotta agree with you!

  • 274 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:23 PM

    jonas needs someone right next to him to actually cross the ball

  • 275 dannyboy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    FFS JONAS!! MARV ANITA AND SOLA NOW!!

  • 276 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Hmmm, Obertan maybe wasn’t the best choice to take off for Marv…

  • 277 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Would have brought Jonas of rather than Gabby

  • 278 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Mother of god…

    taking off one of the better players in the game for us.

  • 279 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    Takes Pardew 60 minutes to realise what we all knew from the start

  • 280 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    jack butler what about the ball that sent him one on one with the goalkeeper??
    pardew makes the worst decisions! should’ve taken tioté off and he will regret that

  • 281 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:24 PM

    More chance of Tiote getting a second yellow, then Newcastle getting a goal.

  • 285 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:26 PM

  • 288 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:28 PM

    nufcursed

    Obviously not, he’s struggling for confidence and has to feed off a single quality pass. We have no quality on the wings to cross the ball and only Cabaye in the entire side who is creating sanything

  • 289 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:29 PM

    if we dont win this game we’ll be out of europe and the only goal left this season will be avoiding relegation…yeeha

  • 290 santonthenewmaldini // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:29 PM

    Also why the hell are we playing 3 defensive midfielders at home?!?Tiote Cabaye and Jonas??

    I gave Pardew the benefit of the doubt but this is shocking this is the type of negative play that has got us to the position we are in the league reminds me so much of the Swansea, Villa, West Ham and Reading home games

  • 291 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:30 PM

    ok agree there but a striker on form only needs a single chance..
    but cissé is not the problem indeed

    a team like norwich or so

  • 305 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:34 PM

    I don’t think so… He already score 2 here…

  • 348 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:41 PM

    Thank god, we might finish with 11 men now

  • 349 nick_9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:41 PM

    This linesman could singlehandedly dump us out of Europe the clown

  • 350 Graeme // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:41 PM

    Another perfectly good goal by Cisse chalked off for a non existent off-side

    Please take Jonas to a knackers yard and have him put down out of kindness. He is a shadow of the player he once was. Cant beat his man, cant cross the ball; runs into bottle-necks than falls over, hoping for a free kick. Sad to watch.

    And here comes Bambi – all pretense of going all out to win this game is now over.

  • 360 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    Total disgrace by the officials. They cost us this game.

  • 361 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    We could score from inside our own half, and the linesman would find fault.

    Nice theatrics to get sissoko in the book. =.=

  • 362 supply // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    this ref is clearly on metalist side

  • 363 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:44 PM

    there should be a new rule that allows teams to substitute the referee or linesmen if they’re playing poorly!

  • 364 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:44 PM

    Cisse scored two great goals tonight which would have done his confidence a world of good.

    As it happens. Nothing.

    I can see them nicking this like.

    Seems our bad luck has returned.

  • 365 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:44 PM

    He must not fancy Anita, i mean literally!!!!

  • 366 supply // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:44 PM

    this ref is clearly one sided

  • 367 spitfire_ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:44 PM

    Linesman ‘s on the wall for execution. NOW!

  • 368 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    Sissoko is one of the only players on the pitch moving.

  • 369 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    I wonder how much three officials cost these days ?

  • 370 RonVanDam // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    Either shola will score with a bullet shot or Santon who’s way overdue for a goal

  • 371 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:45 PM

    Mbiwa is the great!!!

  • 372 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:46 PM

    these conference officials probably not that much!

  • 373 Marty-Toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:46 PM

    This is saddening

  • 374 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:46 PM

    We need to take a 2 goal advantage to Ukraine not to play our strongest side

  • 375 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:46 PM

    we need to score in ukrain:(

  • 376 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    Mbiwa’s balls out of defense are first class, turning defense into offence. Thought that when watching him on youtube before he came too.

  • 377 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    Don’t know about the officials being corrupt, but Pardew must have been given a bung to stick with Jonas and Obertan

  • 378 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    referee is blowing the game to pieces

  • 379 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    Spuggy

    Aye Sissoko is going to be immense and I’m impressed with Mbiwa too

  • 380 ToonDownSouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    Sickening.

  • 381 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    very subtle jonas!!

  • 382 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    ffs someone knoch the referee out!

  • 383 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:48 PM

    JackButler
    Can’t agree more!!!

  • 384 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:49 PM

    getting absolutely mugged off by the ref. im enraged

  • 385 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:49 PM

    Oh wow. a decision against Metalist!

  • 386 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:50 PM

    I love marvXXX
    He is great however pardew don’t like black

  • 387 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:50 PM

    Spuggy
    2 great goals? One of those was all sissoko, putting the ball in an empty net is not a great finish mate

  • 388 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:51 PM

    ameobi is the opposite of lucky luke: slower than his own shadow!

  • 389 davis_toons // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:51 PM

    shola shld do more on the pass from Colo

  • 390 Jamiemac // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:51 PM

    Alright then jackButland who would you have playing on the wings?! Marv has always been sh*t on the wings bear that in mind.

  • 391 Scotttoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:52 PM

    Oh Demba, how I miss you so

  • 392 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:52 PM

    Mbiwa and Sissoko not quite gelling every time. But when they do …

  • 393 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:52 PM

    Yet again our right winger has not put a dingle cross on, stewy barraclough will be pissin himself, it is worse than comical that man can get another 90 mins, shAkespeare could not have written a tradgedy about it.

  • 394 colwell // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:53 PM

    If only we had Ba at least then Cisse and Shola could watch how a striker is supposed to play.

  • 395 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:53 PM

    PARDEWOUT

    YOU ALF YOU RACIST SCUM ?

  • 396 Cisse09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:53 PM

    Main part of Alan Pardews story’ ye 2 disallowed goals but we have still played shit imajine if we played well!!

  • 397 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:53 PM

    Jackbutler
    Surely its pretty simple as we dont have wingers then, dont play cisse if he’s the one who doesnt fit the team

  • 398 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:54 PM

    Jamie
    Marv has always been sh*t on the wings still far better than Jonas and Obertan

  • 399 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:54 PM

    Jamiemac

    I’d put young Fergie in before Jonas and if Marv is poor on the wing then what are Jonas and Obertan.
    Anita would do a better job there or even move Santon up into midfield and play Haidara. There are plenty of options but Pardew is far to pig headed/guttles to drop Jonas

  • 400 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:55 PM

    cissé is cursed

  • 401 Cisse09 // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:55 PM

    Just not our night when that happens!!

  • 402 jeff // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:55 PM

    poor cisse

  • 403 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Those linesmen want shot with shit

  • 404 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Who the FFFFF is booing. Should be ahsamed. We scored two perfectly good goals.

    Pricks!

  • 405 Marty-Toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Robbed but we shoulda made it count

  • 406 colwell // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Cisse wtf man the GK is small the goal is big stop hitting it straight at him.

  • 407 TheToonKing // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    how did we not win this ?

    Cisse must have pissed off God himself…

  • 408 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Linesman 2 – Newcastle 0

  • 409 toonicle // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Bad refs lost it for us. We could have been better though.

  • 410 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Cisse second goal was sheer class.

  • 411 nufcursed // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    what i dont understand is how newcastle players can shake hands with the officials after that game

  • 412 colwell // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Spuggy- booing the ref/linesman no doubt

  • 413 northernirishtoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Really angry at that game 2nite and don’t know why?

    Not the worst result

    Cisse going through an absolute terrible spell

    Think if he was playing anywhere near what we all know he can then we would be flying

  • 414 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    yo-yo
    no i don’t mean that
    I think pardew only with special relation with Jonas and Obertan

  • 415 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Bale scores 2 free kicks to win against Lyon.

  • 416 dembademba // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Jonas terrible, cisse does my head in! Wtf was ameobi doin hangin outside the box then!? 2 strikers needed, Carroll on loan + 1 other

  • 417 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:57 PM

    Linesman 2 – Newcastle 0

  • 418 brighter // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    We killed by f*****g referee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 419 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    Hang on Cisse slaters

    He scored two PERFECTLY GOOD GOALS tonight.

    Wind ya necks in.

  • 420 true toon // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    Good effort from the lads, couldn’t ask for more . We deserved to win today but for some doggy decision from the linesman . However i don’t think we are going to achieve much this year, Luck is simply not on our side..

  • 421 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:59 PM

    Worst thing is

    Cisse scored 2 … but missed another hattrick
    If he’d been on form and the linesman wasnae short of pockey money we’d be 5 up

  • 422 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:59 PM

    colwell

    Hope you\re right but how is the team to know.

  • 423 brighter // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:59 PM

    Stealer referee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!get lost them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 424 JackButler // Feb 14, 2013 at 9:59 PM

    tads

    We do have wingers, Gouffran and HBA when fit as for Cisse not fitting he should have three goals in four games no bad for a shyte striker

  • 425 Spuggy // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:00 PM

    yoyo

    Slightly unfair, even RVP doesn’t convert all his chances. 2 out of 5 chances converted is pretty good still for a striker out of form.

  • 426 NUFCarter // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:00 PM

    Nothing’s going for cisse atm feel sorry for the lad but it annoys me how hes always that bit offside.

  • 427 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:01 PM

    Sorry for Cisse
    we all know what he can do
    all he needs is goal for confident
    see torres
    he should score 2 already…

  • 428 beefman13 // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:01 PM

    Pig headed egotistical manager. Go on blame the officials, u can see it a mile off, teach your striker how to play offside.

  • 429 yorkshire_magpie // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:01 PM

    Don’t understand why people are given cisse stick. He scored perfectly two good goals.

  • 430 Newcastle for alltid // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:02 PM

    I knew right away when I saw the nationality of the refs that we would be victims of terrible decisions tonight. Norwegian referees are too poor to referee European games. They’re just not used to the pace and the movement of the European game, as Norwegian Premier League is extremely poor and static in comparison.

    Frustrating game, horrible refs. We played some neat football, and should have won this one easily, even though Metalist is a decent side. They are off-season, and that showed in the last hird of the match. A difficult away game now waits, and I’m concerned.

  • 431 yo-yo // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:03 PM

    Pardew cannot drop Cisse. He has to get help him get his mojo back. We would have dumped them otherwise

  • 432 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:04 PM

    NUFCarter
    Cisse offside is really annoying
    I dunnno why
    he is fxxking fast, need no to steal the first steps

  • 433 Rake // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:05 PM

    It’s not just about Cisse converting chances our wingers who played today created about two chances all game between them just shocking

  • 434 Pardew_out // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:07 PM

    i have no hope on guti
    every time i watch him on wings with ball
    Just hope he make a short pass
    NEVER cross please

  • 435 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:07 PM

    Jackbutler
    ????
    Gouffran is a CF mate that were playing on the wing, ben arfa has said time and time again he wants to play the number 10 role and doesnt whip crosses in
    As for 3 goals one tonight, into an empty net anyone could score, the second, if your offside that many times during a game the ref is never going to give you the benefit if the doubt, ever. And when was his third goal?
    Sorry but rather see gouffran upfront works harder and doesnt rely on others to put chances on a plate for him, even when they are on a plate its 50:50 whether he’ll even put it on target ( like a free header 6 yards out unmarked vs spuds)
    The lad is in p1ss poor form, intresting how you’d rather put the blame on the entire midfield, the ones who have been getting our goals, than the bloke uptop who should be getting them
    Give me Ba over cisse anyday of the week

  • 436 Ketsbaia9 // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:09 PM

    The positives were Sissoko, Cisse, Santon, Marveaux and Mbiwa. We probably deserved to nick it, but was expecting a tough game. Marveaux and Anita should’ve started, so I’m afraid that was a mistake by Pardew.

    Marveaux is pacey and great in posession and creates chances. A great player to have at the club.

  • 437 stretchintoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:20 PM

    been saying it for a good while now…Cisse is crap not worth anything like 10 mil,ok he got it in the net twice but 1 of those was offside & he should of had 5/6….not good enough im afraid & id like to see him gone in the summer along with the liability that is tiote.a couple of decent strikers for the money we could get for cisse and another decent dm/cm to replace tiote plus a solid defender & i can see us really going places.

  • 438 josstoon time // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:21 PM

    well im going to bed totally deflated. i love european nights but i always dread the officiating….its s@@t and always has been. how late did the lino put his flag up for our first goal ?? surely human nature tells you those decisions are mentally made within a split second, what a c+@k ! tiote seems to be struggling, thought marveaux looked strong tho dont understand how guti lasted. still think we can score in karks…….but what does pardew think ?!

  • 439 stretchintoon // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:26 PM

    why are people saying cisse scored 2 perfectly good goals…..no he didnt 1 was clearly offside

  • 440 ITUNDERASHELL // Feb 14, 2013 at 10:50 PM

    We are looking like a good team, even Krul is throwing or rolling the ball out to his defenders.
    Gutti and Oba will not get near the team next season because they cannot put the ball into the box accurately.
    If Guffran had been playing we would have torn them apart and with Benny on the other side awesome.
    Santon continues to worry me as he seems to forget his defensive responsibilities but due to his age l hope he will improve because going forward he is excellent.
    Once Cisse gets the service he needs he will score a hatful.
    Need another striker who can play on either wing and Tiote sorting his game out or move on.
