Who Was The Man Of The Match Against Sunderland?


Sunderland_2

Let us know who you think was the Man of the Match against Sunderland today in what was a complete and utter shocking defeat for Newcastle.

Sunderland won the game 3-0 – that’s our worst home defeat of the season, and it puts Newcastle right back into the relegation dogfight – this is the worst result of the season for Newcastle.

And just to make things even worse – Tim Krul was injured and replaced by Rob Elliot – Tim has a shoulder injury – so we are still not safe from relegation is the bottom line after this dreadful defeat.

    I will start by saying I know part of the managers job is to fire up his players, but wtf were our lads doing today?

    No one seemed to care at all. Absolutely no pressure or positioning. Pathetic in the extreme and whilst I know many will lay this solely down to Pardew, or at least apportion most of the blame at him, do we really think the instruction was “Now, don’t pressure them, give them loads of room and where you can don’t be goal side, let them have a crack at goal”.

    Absolutely gutted by that display.

    Also have to say, those were three lovely taken goals, even given the amount of time they were given to take the bloody things. Fair play.

    Sorry for the caps, please read and dare question if what I am saying is wrong

    “I DONT KNOW WHY WE CANNOT BLAME PARDEW? AT THE END OF THE DAY THE PLAYERS ARE FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS OF PARDEW AND THE FORMATION OTHERWISE THE PLAYERS WOULD PLAY ANYWHERE. THE THING IS PARDEW NEEDS TO GO, HIS TACTICAL NEGATIIVITY HAS SINKED INTO THE CLUB AND YOU COULD SEE FROM JONAS’S FACE THAT HE DIDNT WANT TO PLAY LB BUT PARDEW FORCED HIM OR HE WAS GOING TO GET DROPPED. PARDEW IS AT FAULT, HE NEEDS TO GO HE ADDS NOTHING BUT NEGATIVITY AND ANYONE QUESTIONS OTHERWISE WELL WHAT CAN YOU QUESTION? AS PARDEW IS THE MANAGER HERE AND WE HAVE NOT SCORED ONE SET PIECE, CORNER IN OUR WHOLE CAREER WITH PARDEW. WE AIMED IT AT WILLIAMSON IN BENFICA JUST LIKE WE USED TO AND WE AIM IT TO STEVEN TAYLOR HOPING FOR A GOAL. THE WHOLE STAFF NEEDS TO GET CHECKED AND SACKED. THE MEDICAL, ASSISTANT, YOUTH HEAD COACH EVERYONE. ANOTHER INJURY TODAY TO KRUL WE ARE F**KED!!”

    The only thing more pathetic than fans screaming for Hughton to come back is fans screaming for Keegan to come back and know absolutely nothing about football… I love CH, he is as nice a guy as anyone in football, but he wouldnt improve us and nor would KK. If we are to improve, we nee to bring someone in with fresh ideas and an attacking mentallity, only problem is, I dunno who could imrpove us who would actually wanna come here. I love the way our club is run, but managers tend to want loads of money and to sign their own players.

    Wow. Im tempted to say it was against th run of play, because in fairness we had more ball, more shots. Three crackin goals but. I think if that gimp of a linesman hadn’t disallowed Cisse’s goal which would have made it 1-1 at the time, things may have been very different, we had all the momentum at the time. And within minutes we were two down. The linesman was lookin Cueller in the back of the head, surely he saw him i mean wtf?! Also this is meant to be the one game Shola shows up, no. And whilst this is not Pardews fault at all, decent team out, started well.. you can’t be taking Cabaye off unless he’s injured or we were winning, he’s too important. This season with Cabaye = 40+% games won. Without Cabaye = 18% Games Won. Bear in mind for all you commenting, the game just ended, we were humiliated, simple as. So you’re obviously flustered, but some of the comments on the last post made me laugh.. We need Demba Ba back? F#ck Demba Ba the greedy gobshite. And those of you expecting Pardew to resign today? haha go back on your meds.

    Even ordinary fans could see Sissoko did not belong in the withdrawn striker role despite his exploits vs chelsea. Same way ordinary fans could see Jonas would be a liability in defence. The minute ordinary fans can see things the coach cannot see is the minute said coach has to go. Pardumb is like gangrene infecting this club with his mediocrity. Only way to move forward is to have him amputated from the club

    As if I’m voting on this. Maybe Krul or Elliot as to be honest, can’t fault them for the goals imo and they do make some other big stops.

    There, one slight positive, GK’s. FFS, today hasn’t turned out well.

    Why do we pump high crosses into the box when we haven’t scored from a corner in ages? Play along the ground ffs! Make the opposition chase you! It has come to the point where I’m not looking forward to our games any longer, as we’re putting shackles on some great talents. Oh my, what could’ve been…..

    That was absolutely SHOCKING!! we are going backwards under Pardew he does not know how to get the best out of the players that we have.all he does is play long ball bypassing our creative midfield players. what kind of a manager plays a centre defensive midfielder left wing its absolutely disgracefull!! we have no spark in the way we play. we cannot score from set pieces we cannot create chances for our stikers and we cannot link up play which begs me to question what we do on the training field. and as for the defence very poor. look at southampton they changed their manager they improved same with sunderland. we need a manager that goes to win games. he plays cabaye far too deep he would be more benefical further up the field with sissoko dropping back. if pardew was managing barcelona he would have them mid table. PARDEW OUT i hope ashley was at the game today. selling out 156 k in 3 games we deserve way better then that crap we are getting on the field. and for the people blaming the players pardew is the one that sets out the players he motivates them and tells them what they should do pardew has to go

    Very concerned. It’s obvious that we’ve got a problem in attack. We need 3 new strikers urgently.

    Players like Alderweireld won’t want to come to us now.

    Cabaye and Tiote can slash off in the summer. They can go to Man Utd for £30m as hey aren’t good enough for us.

    We missed Santon and Colocini today.

    Pardew needs to go. Some results this season were hard to take but this takes the cake. I wager any other PL manager could get more out of our team and on paper the starting 11 should have crushed sunderland today however Pardum somehow manages to get them comfartably beaten FFS. Prepare for the excuse train

    “We was tired”
    “we was on the bad end of decisions’

    How about taking the blame for hoofball tactics you moron. The guy has to go

    Hughton would be a massive improvement on Pardumb. Why? Because he’s clever enough not to believe his own hype and employs common sense based strategies. He may not have the gift of the gab needed to impress fat cats like Ashley but he’s effective where it counts- coaching and motivating the team!

    it has been the same all season
    cabaye a CDM when he prefers attacking cisse wide then alone up front with no one to help him marvo not getting started until the last few games hadaira still being left on the bench when he is showing signs of a good FB tiote who is such a bad liability still worth starting the widemen not able to crete chances sissoko just because of 1 good game now is classed as a forward when he is a DM.

    Very upset but you can’t really blame Pardew, he picked the team most people would have started. It was one of those games where we had no luck, good goals given offside and everything they hit ended up in the corner of the net.

    Ok firstly we are all angry, hurting, embarrassed etc but lets try not to argue like children shall we…..

    For me, another poor game. As a 1-off you could argue 3 great finishes from them, disallowed goal for us to equalise, luck not with us…

    But there hasnt been a game this season where we dominated, only chelsea home where we looked like a top 6 team. Cant think of any 90minute performance from us this year at all….

    A team with so many creative, skillful players, and such a lack of idea around the box, pass and move not really fluent. To be outclassed today by their players is a joke, on paper we are streets ahead of them and yet we didnt transfer that to the pitch.

    All season we havent been a fluent, attacking team. Our europa games, especially all the group games were horrrendous to watch, sneaking 1-0’s against very poor sides. Please if you have a romantic tinted picture of how we played, just re-watch them somehow.

    Last season, first half we got results but again, there werent too many top performances, lots of luck went our way as we know. Second half of the season and thins look up, cabaye in the hole, HBA on fire, Cisse scoring from anywhere. Promising.

    But to return to this level of performance this season, and it is all season sadly, im sorry but we can bring in all the purple players you like but if the management team cant get them playing well enough then that needs to be looked at.

    Was also thinking, who on our coaching team is qualified to teach them how to play the continental way? If this is the way we want to play, has steve stone ever done it? John carver, who i love and think he is essential to us, he was a number 2 to Bobby where we played 442 with wingers and bellamy and shearer up front, wasnt too much continental style pass and move there. Pardew himself has no experience of this hat i know, so how do they expect to teach it when they havent experienced it themselves???

    Just think if we want to keep pards, then resign AC and play tahat way with correct players, 2 wingers, sissoko in the middle, sell cabaye and go all in. If we want the 4231 stuff then need to look at the coaching coz even bringing in PEA or whoever wont change the way we play.

    Im off to cry now.

    Cabaye and Tiote are so overrated, it’s unreal. We would’ve got better results with Anita and Marveaux in the starting line-up.

    They have to leave the club.

    1)main positive was marveaux. he can play on the wing as ppl have doubted in the past and is prob our best player.

    2)all 3 goals were frm outside the box, which is rare.
    3)linesman robbed us of at least a draw.

    Time to put sissoko in his favoured position in the middle in a viera position. Pards tactic of sissoko off cisse as a support striker has been worked out. gouffran was taken off too early. shola was useless. should ve been marv, benny, gouffran behind cisse.
    GUTIERREZ IS NOT UNDROPPABLE. THE GUY COVERED AROUND 10KM on THU and was played out of position. Was to blame for 1st goal.
    time to bring in some new coaches as we dont have enough. some spanish or brazillian attacking coaches would be good.
    taylor is good but we need another centreback to take his place, who is good in the air 6ft4 plus and can score goals. we ve had the least amount of goals from defenders according to opta stats. Need to work on sissokos heading.
    Would like to see us sign DIAME , REMY OR AUBEMAYANG as well as a samba/sakho, douglas type beast.
    Imagine coming up against tiote,sissoko and diame.

    Not Parsdews fault? Must be irony!
    Had one or two players had a day off, ok… players fault, but a whole f*****n team? That’s goes much deeper than a players.

    I don’t like Di Canio at all as a person, but i would love have him as manager over Pardew. We would at least try to attack with more than one players in the box.

    I agree with Ibiza @ 1.

    The better team won simple as that and they wanted the win more than our players did.

    Cisse’s goal was balanced out by Taylor not having a penalty against him and we could have had another two pens against us and Goofy sent off.

    Pardew put an attacking team out and we got beat by a team with more fight and three cracking strikes that they are unlikely to repeat in one match for a long time.

    Sh1t happens and it happened against us today.

    No Plain…I can go along with that to some extent. I do feel our biggest downfall was applying some pressure. Gave them way too much time and way too little respect. It’s one thing for fans to shout their mouths off about how easy a game it should be, the players can’t be that relaxed about it.

    We set up against Sunderland as if they were Benfica.
    As I said two weeks ago, all that does is encourage out-of-form teams (like Sunderland) to gain confidence and have a go at us.
    There was never any evidence in the way we are playing for the surge up the table to eighth.
    I saw us safe, but only by a couple of points. And that was predicated on us winning today.
    We have London clubs coming up, where we traditionally under-perform. And the “you-just-KNOW-it’s-going-to-happen” prospect of the Fat Sam and ‘Arry doing a victory shuffle.
    Ditto Liverpool.
    We are in trouble lads. And “We are the TOON, we are the TOON!, aggressiveness isn’t going to make anyone but yourself feel better.
    If we keep setting up like this, we’ll go down.
    Pardew, or the club?
    The club.

    Amazed anyone voted for Guti. Amazed too that in the space of a couple of weeks, a mad italian can do something that Pardew has singularly failed to do in months; produce a fluent display of football. Do us a favour Alan and HOOF your way back to Croydon.
