Pardew Cannot Remember Being So Disappointed After A Game

It was one of those games on Saturday that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth – well if you are Newcastle supporter that is – because Newcastle deserved to win this game, based on our excellent and powerful performance in that second half, but we came away from South Wales with nothing – absolutely nothing.

We’ve watched the game a couple of times since Saturday and we still come out losing it 1-0 – so we suppose we should move on now.

Here’s new interview with Alan Pardew in the Daily Mail today:

“It was absolutely galling – I can’t remember being as disappointed as I am,” “It’s difficult to look the players in the eye and say ‘you should’ve done this’ or ‘you should’ve done that’. We almost played the perfect game – and ended up losing.”

“It was unbelievable – you could see they’d settled for 0-0. They were quite happy with that.” “Sissoko was powerful in the second-half – he was dominating the game.” “Yohan and Gouffran had fantastic chances. Papiss did too. On another day they’d have gone in.”

“Our power and forward players started influencing the game. Cabaye kept setting up attacks. We just didn’t take one.” “In that 20-minute golden period we had, we had three or four massive chances.” “That’s probably what’s cost us the game.”

“We should’ve taken the lead. Had we done that, I’m sure – 100 per cent – we’d have won.” “We absolutely bossed the second-half – you couldn’t have asked for a better half in terms of an away performance.”

Next up is a good side Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday night and a draw in Russia would be an excellent result for us – and then we must take all three points out of Stoke City on Sunday afternoon – in what we hope is another sell-out crowd.

And news today that Fab Coloccini could be back for that game – so that’s a bit of good news this morning.

    Here Beefman, are you about? There’s something I want to ask you. You’ve mentioned in a few of your previous posts that you used to post on other forums…did you used to post on as someone called Rooster or GeordieRooster or something like that?

    I’m just a bit curious as your posts have similar themes and tones.

    I thought he would be used to results like this, isn’t that why he has been sacked from every club he has managed?

    Cisse is a scorer of great goals, not a great goal-scorer like Shearer or even Ba. He is good but unreliable, like Martins and LuaLua. Had we had a monotonous, efficiant striker on Saturday, we’d have put that match away.
