    I still don’t understand why tiote did that? even no contact, the striker will dive and the reff will give penalty, especially with his reputation.

    How stupid can he be?

    Tiote is and always has been reckless so nothing knew, doesn’t assess a situation well.

    Good game overall, played below par but ground out a result. Can’t play well every week so good fight and determination shown

    There wasn’t really a stand out player for us today. Cabaye’s goal was top class but his set pieces were poor all day and he didn’t contribute a whole lot else. Sissoko had his usual driving runs but then nothing at the end of them. Cisse offered absolutely nothing apart from his winner.

    I went for Stevie Taylor, was solid all day and I loved his celebrating in Begovic’s face after his antics before the free kick 😀

    @Roshan

    I want him to actually create something… Not run around for 92 minutes losing posession. But I’m not gonna call you a fool if you enjoy watching headless chickens run around on the pitch.

    Apart from his goal, did he have any other shot? I doubt it.

    I dont understand how cabaye’s long range passes and direct free kicks are great but his corners seem aweful. Perhaps it’s the movement in the box.

    If we buy a ST a winger a CB and get Martinez as manager I can see us being a top team.

    Has to be Marveaux. Changed the game. Our final ball was very poor today. Mbiwa looked good again and Haidara looked promising at full back.

    Haven’t been able to watch the match as I’m at work, but ive been checking the comments from time to time, I have a lot of sympathy for people who can’t make the games for geographical reasons, but those of you sitting in Tyneside spouting your bile on here should be ashamed of your selves while there’s 1500 seats spare in the ground.

    I cannot believe how bad we are from corners.
    Tiote is just too clumsy. Häidara will soon be starting at left back.

    Sage
    Can’t say I thought it was a game tbh, great 3 points but were the polar opposite from the start of the season! At the start of the season we were playing well upfront but were a shambles at the back, now were pretty solid at the back but a shambles up front!
    God i miss demba ba!

    I thought you were describing Jonas.
    Really good result, deserved to win. Thought Tiote was playing as well as he had in a while until he had a Titus Bramble moment.
    Other than the goal I thought Cabaye wasn’t great. Was a frustrating game but we showed that important fight again.
    Really pleased

    Is Cisse a good football player? I’d say No. He is a fantastic goalscorer but all other aspects of his game are poor.

    Ba on the other hand was both.

    Thats what we miss a striker that can create something from nothing.

    To those who say Pardews tactics are terrible. I thought all three subs today were perfect. Haidara is a better defender than Santon and surprisingly is better going forward on the wing (with the exception of Santon’s shooting which is usually pretty good).

    I actually thought Tiote wasn’t playing too badly apart from the penalty, but to take him off for Marveaux and give us some much needed flair was spot on. And to give Campbell a run finally. Good on the lad.

    Great win. And based on the last 6 games we are better than all teams outside of the top 5. Good run we are on.

    Btw.. Gouffran really needed to put that 1st half chance away, but I do like the lad

    In theory he should yeah but every game he starts wide he just does nothing! He is suited in a central role but for me he’s a great impact sub but not a starter

    I voted Mbiwa felt he would get properly tested today against Stoke but dealt with everything and got a few attacks going for us

    Totally dominated them from start to finish but it could have been so much easier if we were not so negative from the start there is no need to play Tiote and Jonas in the same team with Cabaye at the back when at home against a team in possession as poor as Stoke

    When Marveux came on we created space as him in the middle offers movement and quality on the ball and allows Sissoko to get on his bike more as well

    Tiote gets a lot of the ball infact probably more than Cabaye and does nothing with it sick of seeing him try these hollywood passes that go to no one!!

    So glad for Cisse to score today as he ran his socks off without getting any service and the 1st actual chance he gets in the game he finishes it cant really ask for more than that !

    We did look a bit leggy today Gouffran looked a bit jaded as did Santon he looks shattered might be time to take him off for a game or 2 or play him on the wing

    We need to get used to playing against teams that will park the bus as Sunderland will play exactly like that and so will Fulham but both of them will probably be nastier

    Cabaye’s long ball was aweful!
    Cisse is not good enough
    An My god Jonas what a f** useless player.
    Tiote is brainless : what a silly player! Lack of common sense

    What a mess. Need to see King Arfa quickly.

    Happy days, I was worried when Tiote gifted them the lead but fair play the manager and players stuck at it and got a result. Well done to the next AC to play upfront. He might not of been on the pitch all that long but nice to see get some game time after all his hard work in training/reserves.

    We made that a hard game today, I agree a few go way OTT but I don’t think you can expect people to never have a criticism of the team we won but we were toothless in attack

    Not going to get dragged too much in to the match day debate but I agree with…… kets!

    In all seriousness, Marveaux was the best player. Yes he hardly saw the ball and hardly feature, but my word… what a bold and brave ball that was. He has four assists this season, TWICE as many as any other Newcastle player. He did what we couldn’t do for 90 minutes – unlock their defence. I couldn’t believe Cisse was onside too, what a cool, cool finish.

    Marveaux the difference, without him we are 2 points worse off.
