Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player At Swansea?


Swansea City v Newcastle United - Premier League

Papiss Cisse – inaction at the Liberty Stadium today

Let us know who you think Newcastle’s best player was at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon in the 1-0 loss.

While Newcastle were second best in the first half,  we completely dominated the second half but missed too many chances,  and then Luke Moore with just four minutes to go got the ball in the penalty box with three Newcastle players around him, he somehow managed to put the ball into the back of the net.

Newcastle should have taken something out of this game with the chances we had in that second half,  when we looked a very good side  but now we are a full 10 points behind the Swans in the league table – and missed an opportunity today to make up ground.

    We were well dominating the game
    If pards had of brought on marv (and he went missing like he normally does) and we were still beat 1-0, everyone would be blaming pards for making a sub while we were playing so well
    He can’t win!
    I personally wouldn’t of changed it cos I thought we were dominating them that much which many teams don’t do there

    No issue with today’s game.

    We started sloppy and then came into the game. We dominated the second half and missed two good chances which could have won it.

    Our finishing cost is today but equally their finishing kept us in it til then point when we had been sloppy.

    Poor from every one involved for the goal and if you are sloppy in your own box eventually something goes against you which it did today.

    Not a crucial defeat but a win would have been nice.

    Overall a good display but couldn’t find the net. A much more positive defeat than we were suffering pre January.

    apologies repost.
    We were outplayed today by a Cup winning class side, lets not forget they have just thrashed that other top class side Bradford City. Swansea are so classy they should be top of the league and so great they’ll probably win the Champions League in the near future, equally their top international players will be challenging for the Golden Boot this year, next year and so on. Really they are a great side. When the Toon sliced through them on numerous occasions and failed to score because of shocking finishing -this should never ever be considered as part of the game as Swansea were so good, they were great.
    Now the reality check -there are complete and utter tools on here that honestly believe that sh**e I have just written above. Blind tools who know nowt about football.
    The correct match analysis is that we should have won but for bad finishing -and I’ll say this for this first time ever -Cisse needs a couple of games on the bench.

    Thought Debuchy and Sissoko were best, thought we played pretty well for the most part, we certainly seem to be going in the right direction.

    Anita should be given a go instead of Tiote, for me he offers more.

    Swansea could of had a goal themselves in the first half and they had a great chance n the second half

    Thought it was a good game and thought we played decent

    Unlucky to lose but still plenty of positives in the game

    @northernirishtoon

    They had more possession than us! You’re previous comment is fiction –

    Swansea 57%
    Newcastle 43% – BBC website

    What you’re syaing is we shouldn;’t make changes – What’s the point in having subs then?

    I know we’ll play well every game but not score and lose 1-0, don’t bring any subs on but atleast we are playing well..

    Doesn’t matter how we play – it matters what the result was – WE LOST.. I’d rather play but manage to get the results

    This new look defense was always going to creak at some point – but Tsunki’s right in saying the defeat was almost invited in and made a cup of tea.

    People saying ‘Jonas off’ are very naive. He wasn’t the problem today – one touch, two touch here – just link the dots off the more creative players. Fine.

    We had some nice midfield possession and created a few clear chances but I don’t buy the ‘unlucky’/shrug it off ticket. Winning is a combination of tactics and belief. Cisse’s performances have been detrimental to the whole team all season. I would have subbed him today to get some fire and focus into his mindset. Lack of confidence isn’t the issue as the way he lashes at chances is casually wasteful.

    We definitely didnt desrerve to loose.
    Could pardew have done more. Of course yes. Instead of making a double sub with 1 minute to go he should have made the subs much earlier
    look at laudrup, sub at 60, 75 and right after the goal brought a defender.
    But nothing to panic. we’re in good shape. one hba comes back we’ll have more creativity.

    Maybe Pardew should go if he keeps playing under-performers? He must be secretly having intercourse with Jonas. Tiote only gets in ahead of Anita because of his strength. Anita is a much better footballer.

    Boater –

    Jonas is deployed as a winger – This season he has played 27 games – He has only scored 1 goal and has 0 assists – Yes 0 assists as a winger.

    If you’re happy to have him play every game then you are crazy!

    I AGREE, I only saw the 2nd half but for me we were so much better. If Pardew did subs and lost the game, the Pardew Slater’s would be calling him for his tactics.
    He can’t win, it was bad defending that cost us but the chances we had and the pressure we were applying I have no issues with the game.

    CIsse was a bag a shite today. Sissoko played well again. Two golden chances blown by Cisse and Goufrann. What a horrible season wenare having. A chance to pull away today.

    Incase anyone didnt notice WE DIDNT SCORE! We dominated the game and with marvo coming on that would of boosted us further but he was happy to carry on with the same team when we hadnt had a goal yet!

    Cabaye and tiote both had yellows 1st half and carried on til the end. And guti that creates eff all was allowed to play 89 mins!

    Pardews a joke end of.

    cisse @6 – I really don’t know what is the answer after todays performance. It probably illustrates we need a couple of more signings. On another day the majority of our efforts would have been goals. It is clear the game was lost because of our poor finishing and not because Swansea are a great team. They play fancy dan football but rarely threatened.

    Really surprised by those possession stats honestly thought we had more of the ball overall but hey

    As far as the subs go, you don’t have to make subs just cos they are there!

    But the point I was trying to make was even if he made a sub and we were still beat everyone would of blamed pards for making a sub when we were completely dominating

    ToonKing, but they had good chances in the first half which I heard they totally dominated. And should have had a peno? Are you wearing black and white glasses or maybe I’m being unfair?

    Toon252 – 4-3-3 doesn’t even incorporate wingers. Change Jonas for Marveaux if you like – there may even be a slight improvement but it will be nowhere near the miracle cure the bleating sheep are so convinced of. It won’t address the key issue as to where we’ve gone wrong all season.

    People saying that anita for tiote half time and marvo for guti around the 60th minute wouldnt of made a difference need to sort thier lives out.

    U can dominate all u want but if u aint got a goal, THATS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

    So if u have game changers like marvo why not use him early on and take it to swansea further and get a bloody goal that we deserved!

    How can u say we played great?! In my eyes a team that plays great gets a couple goals as well as keeps possesion, pass the ball well etc.

    Deluded retards.

    NI Toon, thats probably very fair. Also, Swansea always dominate the possession stats so not much point reading into that.I think Cisse is under severe pressure. He may not be a good player to lead the ine – may need to play in a 4-4-2 ( but not with Ba! ) . Did he lead the line in a 4-5-1 in Germany? I dont think so but am not sure.

    Unfortunately we got the result we deserved today, not saying we played worse than them but when you squander chance after chance after chance then the only people to shoulder the blame are the lads

    Now I know goofy missed a good chance today, but I can kinda forgive him that, his first shot of the game first time shot and first time he’d managed to get central but still you have to test the keeper
    But cisse, seriously wtf is wrong with this bloke? Wildly swings at everything has no composure, no vision, can’t play with his back to goal, can’t beat the offside trap, I’m mean is this the same player???
    I said at the time I think Ba was getting unfair abuse of our fans for cisse sh1t form, and ppl kept saying cant wait to sell Ba then cisse will magically return to form, we’ll that was 2 and a half months ago and he looks worse every week
    Just my opinion but we sold the wrong CF and Ba would be thriving in this set up

    imo we lack a striker but that is it. No major investment needed at all. Pards lost the game because he waited to long to bring on players. Taking the p1ss bring on players with thirty seconds to go in normal time. Not a good show Pards, you are the weakest link today…..lol

    I’ll say this for the umpteenth time. Sanom is not only a bad defender, but he’s a bad defender playing on his wromg foot. He will be a sub next year when Haidara takes over – especially in away games.

    Manx
    Wouldn’t replace anyone in the 11 with Marv, he’s been poor more than he’s been spectacular, can’t play as a winger and is too weak to play in the middle, when HBA comes back he’ll take the spot from jonas so who will the Marv lovers be calling to drop then?
