Marveaux-Cisse Do It Again – Magpies Through To Quarter-Finals


In this game tonight, Anzhi were reduced to 10 men after Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez was sent off after 55 minutes, when he picked up his second yellow card with a bad foul on Haidara, and that gave Newcastle a distinct advantage, but Anzhi were very tough to break down, until a last second headed goal from Cisse, from a beautiful Marveaux cross – put the Magpies through to the quarter finals in a dramatic and sensational finish to the game. You cannot make this stuff up.

Papiss Cisse heads the winner three minutes into added time

In front of a fantastic turn-out of 45,487 fans with 359 of that number being Anzhi supporters, Newcastle had a difficult first half.

Anzhi were the better side and controlled the game with some good passing, until they were reduced to 10 men, but Anzhi still played well, and after 88 minutes a fantastic free kick from Mbark Boussoufa had Elliot beaten, and the ball hit the cross-bar and came back into play.

It looked as though the game was going to extra time, and in fact just as the three minutes of added time was up, it was that man Sylvain Marveaux again, who put in a great cross into the area from the right wing, and Papiss Cisse gave the goalkeeper no chance from six yards out, as he headed the ball like a rocket past the Anzhi goalkeeper.

And dramatically, Newcastle were through to the quarter finals in a fairy tale finish to the game, and we didn’t even have to go to extra time.

When Cisse scored the Geordie crowd went wild – and that’s an understatement – and it was so similar to the Stoke game because Adam Campbell had been brought on (after 71 minutes) in place of Vurnon Anita, and the local lad had also been brought on against Stoker, late in that game.

It was a gutsy performance from Newcastle, with Steven Taylor again having a great game at the back for Newcastle, and Sylvan Marveaux was Newcastle’s most dangerous player on the night.

But Yohan Cabaye had to go off in the first half with some injury, and the Frenchman was replaced by Jonas Gutierrez, who did a very decent job in the middle of the park once he came on.

In the first half Lassana Diarra had two good chances for Anzhi, but he was stopped both times by Steven Taylor, who blocked both of his shots, and then a terrible free kick by Yanhga-Mbiwa put the ball straight to an Anzhi player in front of the penalty area, but the ball was hit wide into the side netting – a let-off for the Magpies.

Yanga-Mbiwa looked a little shaky at times tonight.

In the second half Newcastle went into another gear, and were starting to create chances when Anzhi were reduced to 10 men , and after that – it was could Newcastle score before the game went to extra time.

And the answer was yes – with the last touch of the ball it was Papiss Cisse, with the help of Sylvain Marveaux, who again won the game for the Magpies, and referee blew the final whistle while Newcastle players were still celebrating.

And we are now in the hat tomorrow for the quarter final draw in Nyon.

You cannot make this stuff up. 😀

Chelsea and Tottenham also got through, but Spurs had a scare as Inter-Milan were ahead 3-0 after 90 minutes, and forced extra time – but a goal from Adebayor put the London side through with a valuable extra time goal – and the game ended 4-1 – and Tottenham go through on that away goal.

Chelsea beat Steaua 3-1 to go through by an aggregate score of 3-2.

Wonder who we’ll get in the quarter finals?

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Rob Elliot; Davide Santon, Steven Taylor, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Massadio Haïdara; Vurnon Anita (Adam Campbell 71), Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye (c) (Jonas Gutierrez 37); Sylvain Marveaux, Papiss Cisse, Moussa Sissoko

    Quarter finals , well played boys. Some of the comments on this blog are just embarrassing and show just how sad some people really are. Negative posts ridiculing our players after a win that puts is into the last eight are uncalled for especially 10 minutes after the game. Bunch of Arm chair fans

    Well marv we all had doubts about you on the wing but he was fantastic. Minus cabs and hba he’s our most creative player. Just needs more consistancy. Hopefully he’s getting it with 2 assists in 2

    Ppl on this blog are bi polar I swear!!!

    We did well to win and im ecstatic. Anji were the better team in the first half and we were the better in the second.

    Steven taylor was solid. Tiote was utter shite. Even marveaux, although he setbup the goal, was pretty poor. Him and haidara getting dispossessed constantly.

    I am happy where we are but I fear the worst if we have to play any english teams. ….

    Yeah, I pinched it 😉 I assume it was the one where Eto just smashed it at Elliot from basically the touchline – scared the hell out of me that, what a player that man still is.

    I agree with people that we weren’t great, but Anzhi weren’t very good either! They’ll be very disappointed that they created so little in that first half.

    Also you know what jonas was great in CM tonight acted as a real driving force kept shouting at the lads tried to keep everyone going!

    People finally got Campbell on for a decent period of time now there slating him! Well knew that would happen but fair play to pardew

    Marv finally put in a performance we all knew he was capable of but previously just hasn’t, great game tonight

    Yanga n stevie great santon decent haidara decent

    Cisse got another goal his confidence is on the up

    Anita was okay struggled whilst cabs was on!

    Sissoko was a bit greedy on the ball tonight but drove hard all night

    Tiote was ummm tiote, don’t think he should of had the armband tbh but better game from him on the whole

    don’t understand why people say marv should play through the middle….he is the only player we have that can put in a quality cross

    plus he always plays well in the big games….Man u, Arsenal and now Anzhi…

    Just cause he doesn’t run around like a headless chicken doesn’t mean he should’t be a regular starter.

    if he gets the service he will produce the goods.

    plus Jonas looked composed in the middle of the park….

    Was a tough tough game we started poorly and actually looked better when Cabaye went off hope his injury is not bad but would actually quite like it if he was not to go away with France as he is looking a bit jaded

    We started to take control and then they started to foul us quite a bit as a lot of teams do as we cant score from set pieces but the guy deserved to go he was lunging in all the time!

    People also need to take a reality check Willian and Eto cost almost more than the whole of our 24 man squad and they had Guus Hiddink managing!Think we done quite well to get through

    Pardew changed the tactics at half time and the only real chance they had was that free kick at the end but we were worthy of the win although we really do need to work on our crossing as it was terrible for most of it

    Cisse again feeding on total scraps the whole game and then the one real quality cross in the game he scores same as Stoke 2 chances in 2 games with 2 goals and we say he is off form?

    Taylor was immense seems the England snub inspired him but could not care if he ever gets called up as think England games could mean he gets injured

    Marveux was immense he worked hard to win the ball tracked back , skinned players and set up chances and has another assist he has more than Arfa and Cabaye now i think?!We really need to find a way to get him in the no 10 role for a bit Sissoko is good there but he does not have the final ball that Marveux has

    Santon and Haidara looked a bit lost in the 1st half but 2nd half both of them played well got forward and put Anzhi under pressure

    Just hope we don’t get Spurs or Chelsea next round as would rather get them later when Arfa is back fit hopefully

    The 88th minute free kick didnt have Elliot beaten. He saved it with this right elbow after it struck the bar and it bounced out. He needs credit for getting to a fantastic free kick.

    Rio Ferdinand being picked ahead of Stevie Taylor for England has made me angry. After his recent displays he deserves a chance.

    I can’t believe some of you having a go at Campbell. IMO in both tonights game and against Stoke he showed good, smart movement and could’ve been used a lot more. I was embarassed to see our “senior players” ignore his runs. Shocking.

    He’s also an Owen-esque player, and should not be used wide or behind the striker. His diagonal runs will cause defenders problems if used properly. He’s got every right to show the other players his frustration when they don’t pass him the ball and instead decides to shoot or waste the ball.

    Blaming Campbell for our failure of ending this game earlier is just shocking, as it was our “senior players” sho wasted the ball, missed simple passes and crosses and had terrible movement. We use too much time on the ball and can’t pass it properly.

    I’ve got high hopes for Campbell, as I find his playing style different from our other strikers. The worry that I have is that the team doesn’t have the brains to use him to his potential.

    Don’t get me wrong. A big win. It’s just that bashing young Campbell post-game is beyond what I expected.

    This was for sure not one of our greatest performances, but what the heck, we made it!

    All you haters out there should enjoy the moment, instead of being all bitchy. Who knows when we are gonna make it this far again.

    If I have read the fixtures correctly we are up against Lazio next. Can we do it? Yes we can!

    Also, on campbell….

    I felt like no one wanted to pass to him…. namely the liability tiote. He was in acres of space twice and the pass was not forthcoming. The kid showed glimpses of class bit his first touch after almost five mins of being on was a hurried back pass to someone who lost it and nearly gave away a goal
