Pardew – We Are Frustrated And Disappointed


It was yet another frustrating result on the road for Newcastle today, as the Magpies completely dominated the second half at the Liberty Stadium, yet somehow came away losing to a late and rather sloppy Luke Moore goal after 85 minutes .

Five Newcastle players but Luke Moore still scores in 85th minute

And Newcastle manager Alan Pardew cut a frustrated figure at the end of the game as he had this to say:

“We are frustrated and disappointed we did not even get a draw as we more than deserved that.” “We sat off them for the first 20 minutes of the first half but we sorted that at half-time.”

“In the second half I thought they had settled for a draw, they knew they were doing well to stay in it.” “But when we did not score in that great period we had you know any mistake can be costly and that is what happened.”

“We missed two or three big chances and you cannot do that at this level.” “The goal was sloppy, it’s a ball into the box, we had four defenders there and it should have been dealt with better, unfortunately it wasn’t and it cost us.”

It was just one of those games for Newcastle,  and when it looked like if any team was going to win  the game  it was Newcastle, and yet in the end we came away with absolutely nothing. 🙁

But even in defeat there were good things to take out of the game, with Newcastle’s best players being local lad Steven Taylor, who had a great game in defense today, and of course Moussa Sissko,  who again looked an excellent and powerful player.

But Newcastle missed their chances in the second half with Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran being the main culprits, but Swansea goalkeeper Vorm had to make two excellent saves from both Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko to keep a clean sheet, and eventually that got Swansea all three points.

This is a very hard loss to take, and now we just have to beat Stoke City next Sunday afternoon.

    When is Pardew going to learn that subs in the last minute of regular time are useless? Marveaux should have been given 20-25 minutes. Leave Shola off and bring Ben Arfa on for the last 15. Don’t tell me he can’t manage 15 minutes Pardew. They have been saying he has recovered from his injury for a week now. If he is so out shape he can’t play 15 minutes someone in the club should be sacked for not doing their job.

    I dispute that Cisse “should have scored” a Ed put in previous article. Volley on his wrong foot, wouldn’t come down, it was a difficult chance. Perhaps he should have hit the target but scoring was far from easy. Gouffran’s was easier but it just didn’t happen for us today. Why has the fans reaction got to be in the extremes? We deserved something from the game, but we didn’t get it. So we move on. We need to keep backing the boys.

    I agree that changes should have been made. We were on the ascendancy but Tiote looked tired as did Jonas. So drop Sissoko in and get Marv and Shola on after 70 minutes. Could have won the game.

    Let’s hope it gets better again but we have thrown away a lot of points on the road this season. How on earth a manager with Pardew’s experience can think putting players on in the 90th minute is useful is beyond me. There is no excuse for that at this level. Marveaux was fresh and raring to go but had no time to make an impact.

    Gotta agree there cisse was so poor today, yeah goofy missed 1,yes 1 chance, cisse had a hatful of chances today and don’t think he put a single one on target, as pardew said at this level it’s just not good enough

    Tads, Gouffran missed one on his right foot, and missed a free header. Where do you get the hatful of chances for Cisse? Volley and shot from 25 yards is all I can remember?

    Yes another very disappointing game from Cisse. He just isn’t consistent whatsoever this season. Now the window is closed I just wonder about our goal production to the end of the season? It puts a lot of pressure on the midfield, especially Sissoko and Cabaye to score. Get Ben Arfa back in there Pardew. No more excuses about fitness please.

    Tbf Marv is a passenger for 90% of the games so putting him on for the last 10% isn’t a bad idea

    Subs could of happened earlier but we were well on top with the lads we had on the pitch why mess with that? With a better striking option aye sure but we don’t have that. Marv really isn’t neat as good as how some rate him and Anita, though a busy player, is not attacking

    Shame shame,shame with today’s result.
    Great play at times but as Pards said,you gotta put those chances away at this level and our boys didn’t even test the keeper with our 2 best chances.
    Cisse isn’t near the player he was last year,he’s playing we’ll but his job is to put the ball in the net.
    Costly result today.
    Not Pards fault with the lads not scoring but subs shoulda been made after 70 mins when we were on top.
    Feel sorry for Anita as he should be on the team before Jonas

    He had loads, this lad is supposed to lead the line, he should of been on the end of 3 or 4 crosses but he wasn’t because his positioning is terrible, his runs were awful and he isn’t doing his job
    Gouffran is playing as winger and still getting in the box to try and create chances!
    Look at how many chances cisse has completely wasted over the last 6 games then compare that to goofy
    Goofy should be taking cisse place, at least he puts the effort in and finds space, cisse just seems to get in sissokos way when he’s driving forward
    He also needs to learn to look across the line, no CF should be offside as often as he is

    Also, Sissoko has had a good impact in the “number 10” role. But he has ability to dominate centre mid and we lose his physical edge sometimes when we need it. But over time we will find the best blend and get it right.

    We will hardly win the Europa league without an in form striker so I think we need to concentrate on getting to 40points asap. Still remain unconvinced by Pardew’s selections, subs and tactics but it is not his job to convert chances but as we don’t have another experienced striker who can play 90mins we probably can’t afford to drop Cisse anyway. Next up Anji, all my mates think that will be the end of the road for us in Europe, hope not.

    With clinical finishing we would have been in the lead well before they scored. We had the opposite of clinical finishing. And why on earth can’t Cabaye take a decent corner? I could see Pardew grinding his teeth after several wasted opportunities. It’s become pathetic. I just can’t believe he is that poor at corners and yet we have nobody else in the lineup to take them.

    That is the biggest pile of garbage I have read in all my time on the blog. His movement is superb, his runs are constant when we have the ball, and he wasn’t given offside once today. He dragged 2 defenders away for Sissoko to shoot but it went wide as it happens.

    To say that Cisse doesn’t put the effort in is beyond a joke. His work rate cannot be questioned.

    Missing chances? Hard to argue against that, but the rest is utter bollox. His movement is no good yet he gets all these chances? How does that work then? Defenders aren’t allowed to mark the Striker that plays musical statues? Got to laugh.

    Hopefully, with a bit of luck that we are due, that may be the last Premier League game this season where we can’t name Hatem in our squad. He would’ve punished Swansea in that second half.

    Hatem is well 89Norcal he’s just apparently out of shape if you can believe that. What on earth are our trainers doing? What a waste of talent. He was made for that game. We should have won 2-1 but with Cisse in there we were toothless at the front again. I’m starting to hate to see him lead the line. We just can’t afford this level of inconstency from a supposed number 9 player.

    played well second half, well mostly and sissoko is something a bit special.

    bit frustrated we didn’t really go for it while we were on top a bit more, ie anita and marv for guti and tiote but can’t legislate for our misses!!

    Guti has been crap all season long but seems to be the manager’s pet so can’t see him dropping him at this stage. We need a striker and a fast winger who can also take corner kicks. Ben Arfa is a scorer of great goals but not a great goal scorer so I wouldn’t be expecting him to get more than 2 or 3 in the remaining league games.

    He was offside several times today but luckily sissoko looks before playing it and doesn’t pass it to him
    His runs are useless and if by great work rate you mean acting like a petulant child due to his below par performances by putting in sh1te tackles then trying to start a fight every game the aye your spot on, the blokes an embarresment atm would be more than happy too se him benched and goofy pushed up top

    Oh yes I remember. Think Pardew might have chosen better words when Hatem came back from Clairefontaine’s care other than he’s in top shape.

    Surely he’ll make Anzhi?

    Geordie Two
    The problem is mate it’s not pardew or our trainers mate, Ben arfa goes back to the clairfontaine everytime he’s injured then he returns and goes back into training so if he’s out of shape it’s because he’s returned out of shape

    The primary job of a striker is goal scoring. We can argue about Cisse’s work rate etc but he isn’t scoring enough. Six goals in the league at this stage isn’t enough. And I really don’ts see a great deal of improvement from him since Ba has left. Put that together with our complete lack of set piece ability in most games and it leaves us a goal short most of the time. Anzhi will probably punish us quite badly in the first leg sad to say.

    Have to agree tads @34 but if he returns out of shape he shouldn’t be allowed to stay over there so long and we should have someone over there with him to monitor the situation. He’s being paid a lot of dosh and now we can’t even see him for 15 minutes yet he’s going to start against Anzhi? Sounds like bollocks from Pardew to me.

    Marv comes with high expectation unlike Younger Obtan. He got to give more to the team. Or a get someone in that can do a better job.

    Pardew, the piss taker has to go! The idiot plays Jonas, who is finished at Premier league level, then makes two subs on 89 minutes. Pardew, will be sacked in the summer we all hope and a Manager who knows how to set a team up needs to come in. Laudrup is by far superior than the clown we are lumbered with. God only knows what cock-up he puts out on Thursday as he is a tactical wanker!

    Start a fight every game? Yeah he is a loose cannon. Joey Barton mark II. Lol.

    So he chases and tackles but there is no work rate? His movement is terrible yet he gets chance after chance?

    And these crosses he should have got on the end of? Yeah, he should have sprouted wings to get to them.

    Tell you what, I am finished with this blog for a while, the player bashing does my head in. Mainly from people who haven’t been to more than a handful of NUFC games in the last few seasons. Gobshites who never go to the game. Well, you all keep “supporting” Newcastle on your dodgy streams on ya laptops.
