    Can’t understand how Marveuax didn’t start, we needed to win this game by two clear goals and our only creative player is sat just behind the defence

    So fast here Ed!

    Pardew got his tactics spot on for me. Nearly had ‘em! Recruitment drive in the summer and a fresh crack at the league with a full compliment of decent players and we should have ourselves a great season next year. Reckon we’ll be a real force!
    Now for the Mackems. Come on lads, pick yaselfs up and tear ‘em a new one.

    how can anyone say pardew got it right?

    we didnt start to attack until 70 mins :S

    he had nothing to loose, he should have went for it from the begining,

    but hey thats his style, always a loser

    Never rated the Europa 😉
    They gave Benfica a damn good run for their money and took the edge off their piri-piri.
    Lovely to see Benny and Marv on the pitch at the same time.
    Roll on the big one against the Black Shirts/Cats.

    Great effort, couldn’t ask much more tbh. Same sort of commitment on Sunday and it should be all good. Benfica are a very good technical side. Way better than the makems. We keep 11 on the pitch, and we win on suday.

    Can’t believe people are moaning at the result tonight. We turned it on and outplayed the Portuguese Champions for half the match. Unfortunately, as has been the case this season, luck just wasn’t on our side. Can’t fault the lads or Pardew tonight, excellent display I feel.

    He was sat down at the end of the last game. Might have been exhausted. Keep it tight, try for a set piece goal like we nearly did and then bring him and benny on to wrap it up.

    Think that must be it

    Welcome back, it’s always a shame when you disappear after a Newcastle win.

    But we lose against Europe’s most in form team, and what a surprise – here you are!

    You truly are nothing if not predictable 😉

    Very proud of pardew and the lads…did everything right and were desperately unlucky in the end. Credit to Pardew..got the tactics spot on…if we had attacked them all night they would have definitely caught us on the break at some point and then the game would have been dead! We had them rattled and as gutted as I am i cant fault anything…I think we should all be very proud of them!!!

    Anyone criticising Pardew for tactics needs their head checking. He got it spot on. This benfica side are quality. No doubt they would have picked us apart if we’d gone gung ho. So close but fantastic effort from everyone involved. Can’t wait till Sunday now. Howay!

    geordie006, I have no doubt if Newcastle played in that league they would be 36 games unbeaten. You cant go quoiting those figures without looking what league they are actually in. And anyway your wrong they lost in their league cup about a month ago.

    Pardew made mistakes tonight:
    Starting Williamson – he cant pass out of defence for shit, all this ends up doing is wasting us time.
    Dropping/Resting Marveaux – abosulutley ludicrous. Wouldnt of minded Bigi in for Anita, but Bigi for Marveaux is a joke.
    Bringing Ameobi on at HT – hes shocking. Gives away free kicks, wasting time.
    Waiting too long to bring on Ben Arfa and Marveaux – game changed when they came on, what more can I say?

    Oh and while I am at it. Have been backing Cisse for MONTHS. He has been fantastic over the last month. Tonight showed his passion for our club. He was everywhere tonight. Not even sure if he will have the energy to walk tomorrow. He left his heart and soul on that pitch.

    For the sake of half a yard we had a goal in the first half…so not like we did nothing.

    As long as we got our first by the 70th minute we had a great chance….we did just never managed to get the 2nd.

    I’m proud of that performance (apart from first half) WE ARE A TOP TEAM, coz u know why? its because in the second half we put one of the best teams in the world under immense pressure and dominated them, now the mackems have a bigger reason to be scared. i’m proud to be a fan of newcastle united, a win against the scum would really brighten up my morning going back to school!

    why is about 35% of this blog retarded? :S

    We have nothing to be ashamed of tonight, Pardew got it spot on. Done exactly what he said he wanted to, and special credit needs to go to players such as Papiss Cisse for working harder than anyone on the pitch, and scoring, once again! Shola, Hatem, Sylvain, Williamson and Simpson all very good too i think.

    if you lot think it was pardew was correct with his tactics today then i guess we should start with this team apart from simmo and bigi who we replace with goffran and debuchy as draws should be good enough for us to suvive.

    One good thing about tonight was seeing Ben Arfa & Marv in the same team. They were both brilliant. I will feel slightly better if we can smash the scum 5-0 at the weekend and this should be the team to do it.

    Thought Willo was excellent. Nobody’s pretending he’s class but, actually, his honesty and application are class.

    I was impressed by the way Pards set up the team to be honest. We contained them well in the first half. If we had attacked from the off then they would have no doubt caught us on the counter and killed the tie off early. Then it would have likely been a waste of time, tiring our players for no reason for an hour. Pards brought the right players on in the second half and with a bit of luck, we could have gone through tonight. Oh well, that’s football. No complaints, we’ve been great in Europe this season and have definitely increased our clubs profile.

    @Transfer

    We left it too late to try to win the game, our return from set piece’s this season is negligible, out final ball is still sunday league standard.

    Teams like Benfica are simply not going to hand you the victory, you have to go out and take them and we only tried to do this for 20 min’s
