Newcastle 2-0 Down At The Half – Too Bad To Be True


There’s a disaster underway at St. James’ Park this afternoon, with Liverpool ripping the Newcastle defense apart in the first 25 minutes of the game, and the Reds are two up at half-time and it could have been worse.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Liverpool - St James' Park

Jonas Gutierrez – in action this afternoon

Newcastle looked second best from the off today,  and within three minutes the fast free-flowing play of Liverpool was just too much for Newcastle, and Daniel Agger put Liverpool 1-0 up, as he was completely unmarked in the middle of the penalty area as he easily headed the ball home..

Liverpool were having all the play, and it was hard to believe what was happening, as the Reds continually opened up the Newcastle defense, and after 17 minutes they were 2-0 up as former Sunderland player Jordan Henderson put the all into the net completely unmarked – after a Coutinho pass tore open the Newcastle defense once again.

Newcastle came a bit more into the game, but after 36 minutes a superb left wing cross from Haidaira found James Perch completely unmarked just six yards out, but he amazingly headed two yards wide of the goal. 🙁

Half time came and the lads were booed off the pitch as relegation is looking a little more real right now – unless Newcastle come out as a completely different side in the last 45 minutes.

Summary – too bad to believe – and it was like a third division side playing a Premier League side.

Newcastle will need to play much much  better in the second half – and we need an early goal – if we any chance to get something out of this game – which looks highly unlikely at half time.

Pardew needs to give his Arsenal half-time talk, when we were 4-0 down against Arsenal just over two years ago.

    I am so fcking angry, from the start as normal negative start, everyone staying defensively, no one pressing up top, only cisse is left at top, Sissoko is a right winger now….. why is anita not starting? why has tiote walked straight into the starting XI. Why is it that Ben Arfa 100% fit is on bench. Why is Gouffran on bench? Why is Pardew having a secret affair with Guti??? Why did we not go 4-3-3 with Cabaye, Sissoko, Anita in midfield, Gouffran, Cisse, Ben Arfa. Why Pardew?? you stupid twat. After you got that award you upped your own ego so much that you think you are a tactical king. You are a no one, you are in debt to Mike Ashley, you are getting paid less then £8k a week. Your time is nearly up here but you are just making it worse and giving yourself a even worse name. I hope you dont manage any other team again unless its a sunday league team or pub team because even then you would be soo negative with 5 a side game cause you are the worlds luckiest manager to even to manage us Newcastle a big club and the biggest ever club you will ever be managing after you get the sack you stupid twat.

    So Andy Carroll to score the winner next week or purposely get sent off? It’s all set to come down to the QPR game and Loic Remy.

    We should play like France and like we played last season, when we played well after Cissé arrival, in a 4-3-3 formation:
    Elliot
    Debuchy, Saylor, Mbiwa, Haidara
    Tioté
    Sissoko Cabaye
    Goufran Ben Arfa
    Cissé
    Sissoko is a CM, not a CAM
