Pardew – It Was A Brilliant Win For Us – A Massive Win


Newcastle manager Alan Pardew paid tribute to Stoke City today, and the opposition played very well and it was difficult for Newcastle to get the breakthrough – but after going 1-0 down after Cheick Tiote made a diabolical tackle on Jonathan Walters in the penalty area to give away the penalty, Newcastle came back with two great goals from Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse, with the Senegal striker’s goal – his ninth of the season – coming two minutes into added time.

Cheick Tiote – in action this afternoon

This is what Alan Pardew told Sky Sports after the game:

“It was a very important win for us, because it jumps us right up the Premier League and gives us a chance to attack the top ten.” “But we were fortunate in some ways, Stoke came here and were excellent today, and that was as good a defensive display as you will see.”

“They stopped us playing and made it very difficult and we kept plugging away, asking different questions and in the end it was a pass through the eye of the needle from Sylvain Marveaux that got us the goal.” “The team has done well in his absence and he is knocking on the door and he sparked us in that last little bit and it was massive.”

“Stoke were a threat all afternoon from set plays, they are giants and you have to be big and strong which we were and I thought Steven Taylor was England standard today. It is a brilliant win for us – a massive win.” “Sometimes it is not physical, but a mental tiredness and I thought we were slow. But I thought we brightened up,”

“It has been a cold week and we all have our thermals still on and hopefully we will warm up for Thursday. This will set us up and I hope our fans respond and we have a big night and performance.”

Yohan Cabaye had an excellent game and is leading our Man of the Match poll followed by powerhouse Moussa Sissoko, Steven Taylor and Yanga-Mbiwa – and the two center-backs were excellent for Newcastle today.

And it was good to see Adam Campbell make his Newcastle Premier League debut on 87 minutes, and Massadio Haidara replaced Davide Santon on 74 minutes – maybe a sign the Frenchman is pushing the Italian for that starting left back spot.

It was a massive win for Newcastle today – fact!

    Re post

    manxpie
    i think pardew got it spot on today subs were great and changed the game!
    but i cant say the lads played well it was well below par but perhaps given our league position nerves played apart
    one things for sure that i think most will agree on, once this season is out the way we desperately need to work on an improved level of consistancy and general improved play we need to create more clear cut chances and drastically improve our final pass
    thats not being negative it’s just wanting us to play the football the teams capable of

    also anyone see pardews interview? even he said cisse had an awful game but took his goal well!!!! bloody neggar 😉

    Today was a good display. Not in terms of quality but attitude and fight, we went behind but never gave up and pushed on.

    Really pleased to win as stoke have the 3rd best defence and 2nd most clean sheets. Away from home they look to draw and just park the bus so hard to breakdown, especially when they went one up

    I love Cisse, he is trying to hard for me, feeding off scraps and getting anxious, feel sorry for him as personally think he is the bee knees.

    Stoke are shite by the way, Pardew is full of it, and what is he talking about regards ‘the team has done well in Marvs absense’ it is enforced by him, does he think fans have no idea what the f#ck is going on. Would love the following team to be picked for Anzi.

    ………………….Eliot……………………
    Santon……Saylor…Yanga…Haidara…
    ……………Anita…..Cabaye……………
    …..Sissoko…..Marv…….Benny……..
    ………………..Cisse……………………..

    No doubt Pards will play Perch and Tiote holding midfielders and go for a 1nil win, well you know what i mean. well me and the young un wont be freezing our bollocks off to watch that, thats for sure.

    what every 1 was saying cisse was sh1t till he scored and we won the game its strange how minds changes very quickly i dont blame the players for anything thats happend this season the only people i blame for it is mike ashley and the puppet and happy that we got the players we wanted in jan but should of been done in the summer and hope this summer we bring 5 more in and that will a good enough team and big enough to challange but a new manager is what we need because next season will be the same if not worse under this puppet players will leave if no change it will happen and all that hard work will be for nothing really

    We really need to work on our corners, how many has it been since we last scored from one? Like 300 now or something?

    Anyways good result, exactly what we need, now lets get the place rocking on Thursday

    soz mate didn’t see your reply!
    yeah i know cisse was ill this week but lets be honest his performance wasn’t to different to most the season, perhaps caused by a lack of competition? either way we need a CF in because i wouldnt want to face another season relying soley on cisse

    on the new lads, just like benny, i think there intergration into the squad is spot on and they have completley kick started our season

    Cisse is a very good instinctive finisher…his movement is good although gets offside to much (needs to adapt if passes getting to him to late, he has to change his game if he’s too quick for the other boys)

    His decision making isn’t great but he is a good goalscorer and does a great job. We do need a Suarez, aguero etc type who scores and creates but they aren’t easy to find and usually cost a lot.

    Check

    If like to see a few changes like try santon in the wing over Jonas maybe. But for all I know they may try it in training and it might not work, pards may not even try it i don’t know

    While I understand a lot of the criticism – I think a lot of you are not allowing for the fact we played 2 matches in 3 days and travelled 2500 miles. Travelling makes you weary even if you don’t play – I think Pardew is right we were mentally tired but a win is a win and Stoke came to defend.

    Tiote is a bloody liability, we should get rid.

    He hasn’t been on his game at all this season and that tackle to give away the penalty was insane.

    Corners are poor. Villa got a lot under oneil and he said no special plans just good movement and a good cross in, keep it simple I think.

    Pardew hater

    Pardew said in the summer he wanted “cabayes mate” (obv debuchy), a striker and a goal scoring CB.

    Not his fault they never came in and once they didnt there was nothing to be gained by saying the squad was too thin and we have no chance so what can he do really.

    no what we really need is to get cabaye further up the field and lurn the rest of the midfielders to learn how to pass and feed the ball to cisse and watch the goals go in like cisse did last season we could and any top striker in there today and the result would have been the same

    Whilst tiote gave away a penalty for a shocking foul, I still thought that up until then he was actually quite good. Played some nice passes and created a couple of chances with his tackling of nzonzi and over the top ball to someone.

    I do think however he needs to realise he can do that and not be rewarded with a starting place. Basically, Anita over tiote. Simples. Or Marv off cisse an sissoko dropping back. Anita deserves to be playing more though

    If tiote is a liability and shud be sold then so shud cabaye.
    Tiote had a good game today only ruined by a dumb tackle for a penalty, but before the pen he broke up play nicely and also stoke were alot better going forward after tiote got subbed, coincidence?
    Cabaye constantly gave away freekicks in dangerous postions but nobody mentions it. I wouldnt want rid of either because both are very good for us. Say what u want about tiote but cabaye makes exactly the same stupid challanges. Only cabaye scores+assists more so people dont care. Tiote is there to break up pla and bar one mistake did very well today

    from last post
    tads agree but i’m very impressed with the way the SQUAD has worked especially the defence since january and to be honest there’s always gonna be teething problems in the team with the drastic changes we’ve made recently and today it was our final ball but we got there in the end 🙂
    cisse supposedly only trained once this week although poor game by his standards he ran allover the pitch all game (last thing i’d wanna do after the shits) and rewarded with a goal
    tads n transfer i’d be interested in what you think of pardews intergration of new players?
    for me he did amazingly last season and with these new players since january he seems to be doing the same?
    how often do you here that new players need to bed in or get used to the climate n pace of the prem it hasn’t really been a problem with most of our signings?

    Also, cisse wasn’t great but had no quality service. We’ve seen what he can do if he does. Haidara played very well when coming on. Campbell was alright as well, packing pace and movement, they seemed reluctant to pass to him though.

    Not sure if I play perch or saylor with mbiwa on Thursday. Probably perch as a reward for a class performance last week

    I lost count of the number of times we crossed the ball today straight into the arms of their Keeper?

    Well pleased with the three points though! It was,nt one of the best games i,ve seen, but a win is a win! Now to beat Anzhi on Thursday and another three points at Wigan next week?

    Thought tiote had an ok game today but in my opinion it wasn’t enough to warrant a starting place above Anita or perch.

    I would personally drop sissoko back (when pards done this today he was still a threat) and put marv in the no 10 spot

    Job done 🙂

    martoon yes we had 2 games in 3 days but man u do it every season plus we did not look tired today just lacked going forward as when we had the ball going forward we did not no what to do with it and thats something we need to sort out defence is sorted i think now midfield is class i think 1 more class striker and we will be fine

    Munster- I think Pardew was referring to Cisse’s absense since he was out with that virus on Thursday.
