Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In 0-0 Draw At West Ham?


west-ham-united-crest

Newcastle had a clean sheet and held West Ham top a 0-0 draw this afternoon but Wigan are starting their escape route out of being relegated when they beat West Brom 3-2 at the Hawthorns and cut the point gap to 3 points with a game in hand.

And Aston Villa beat Norwich to go two points clear of Newcastle, and Norwich are now level on points but have a one goal advantage on goal difference. If Wigan beat Swansea at home on Tuesday night and Sunderland don’t lose at home to Stoke City on Monday Newcastle will go 3rd bottom of the league for the first time this season, with just two games to.

The bottom line today is that the third bottom side gained 2 points on us – so it doesn’t look good, and it’s now a must win game at QPR next Saturday.

Let us know who you think Newcastle’s best player was against the Hammers this afternoon.

    we will be extremely lucky if we don’t get relegated and probably doesn’t deserve it by the way we play.
    I think i’m gonna get abused saying this, but it’s reality.

    Starting to get very nervous!
    Three points now a must against QPR. Absolutely essential.

    Norwich has tougher schedule than us on paper, but if WBA and City want us relegated then we are more or less screwed. Unless Sunderland goes empty handed.

    Why change banner?

    Thought was a good result today, think Norwich will be relegated. Qpr should be a point/3. Happy with that result, keep the faith

    There was a few good moments in the game but then once again it turned to the normal panick football. Pardew needs to go this was his chance to show himself and change the formation change the style etc but yet again nothing new starting jonas who in my opinion runs round like a bloody headless chicken!!!

    It is looking grim now wigan once again playing well at the end of the season villa have found their form, when are we going to find ours?

    A lot of you were saying that you’s would take a draw before the match, now that we have it isn’t enough?

    You’s seem to forget that we should have been one nill up and that would have given us the momentum to get more. We controlled the game in the first half but West Ham came out fighting in the second. They’re an excellent team especially at home. Every team struggles against them because they’re so direct.

    The reason we brought on Shola for Ben Arfa was because Ben Arfa was literally creating nothing and Shola could combat the height and heading ability of West Hams team. Same reason Gosling was brought on instead of Anita.

    Don’t know what you’s were expecting. It’s West Ham we’re talking about here, we were always going to have a scruffy game of football no matter what. Just be grateful we actually got something out of the game.

    Wigan won’t be the team to be relegated. Cant believe they will stay up once again, but I can see them doing their usual and win their remaining games. I think it is between us and Norwich to go down. Vital game for Norwich at home to Villa today and they went and bloody lost it, lets hope they do the same at home to WBA and then lose to Man Utd too.

    We really must beat QPR next weekend or it’s curtains.

    Reality is its out of our hands. If the teams below us win their hame in hand and equal our results last 2 games its game over man.

    Still think we’ll beat QPR and be safe. Inquest is needed in the summer into why we are where we are though.

    Stoke are the other team whose position is misleading. They are still in the mix.
    I always thought Villa and Wigan would stage a fightback. I always thought Norwich and Stoke might slip back. We need to beat QPR.
    I’m pleased so many of the boys are now turning their thoughts to Norwich.
    Clever things, boys. They ignore what you say, and then say “Hey, I’ve had a REALLY clever thought.”

    I actually thought we played pretty well today. Colo was excellent, as was Mbiwa, and even Tiote had a good game. West Ham grew into the game in the second half but we withstood the pressure well. Hopefully we can get a win against QPR, I think Norwich will probably lose both their games, so maybe a point will do it.

    Once Colo is back, the Defence is in place. No more pushing responsibilities and attack when we needed to, smart ball is pass through. Back line is guided.

    The last time i saw a consistent Stylor was before he sign a new contract. He used to attack and bring the ball forward without fear but that young tylor have lost so much of that confidence.

    Same as Tiote.

    I see it as between us and Norwich, who gets the biggest hammering on the final day.

    @Papiss9 Really? Did you watch them vs spuds last week?

    Come the end of the season wigan just go all out for it every game they just play pure attacking football basically play with 3 cb’s and 7 strikers…While were doing the opposite and just defending well tring to.

    40 points is not magic number yet, but goal difference is and we are 3rd from bottom for goal difference
