Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In 2-1 Win At QPR?


Let us know who you think was Newcastle’s best player in the dramatic 2-1 win at Loftus Road this afternoon, after Newcastle were 2-1 up at the break, but were hopeless in the seocnd half, and we went down to 10 men when Rob Elliot handled outside the box.

Queens Park Rangers v Newcastle United - Premier League

Ben Arfa scores a “smashing” penalty after 18 minutes to level the scores

But credit for the back four and especially captain Fabricio Coloccini – who were solid again today – although Debuchy gave away another stupid penalty after only 11 minutes – he needs to cut those out.

But results are all that matter at this stage of the season – and give the lads credit for getting a fantastic result that has saved us – and would you believe it – we are up to `13th position in the league table.

    It’s sad really, I’m sitting watching the Man Utd ceremony on Sky Sports now and all I can think, is being in an awe of what it could be like for your team to be so successful. Must be an amazing feeling to win the league, even as a fan, nevermind as a player.

    Well done Man Utd. I hope it will be us one day.

    Debuchy- This lad wants to be away, he is not happy here. He wishes he hadn’t listened to his pal. I think Pardew will be the problem, no system or tactics. Can blame him, and more will follow.

    How come sky sports and other sources are saying we have officially secured premier league football for next season? We could still go down were not safe yet.

    @John are you retarded?

    Wigan and villa are both below us and have to play each other so either way 1 of them are going down we are mathematically safe.

    The only way to judge a manager is by results: It’s one match too early to confirm this season, but at 13th with one match to go, we won’t be relegated (except, of course, mathematically, and mathematically only, we could be). We might finish 10th or anywhere you care to mention below that, (apart from 19th and 20th); not at all where we were expecting. Last season we finished 5th, equally, not at all where we were expecting. All in all, the manager is doing OK (I accept 90% of posters here will now have apoplexy, but note my words, “all in all”). You bring in a manager. he finishes 10th, 5th 13th(?) . You aren’t going to sack him for that.

    Start of next season, NUFC manager is A Pardew. Don’t waste breath uselessly discussing alternatives.

    Williamson is still not good enough but his last two performances have probably been the best I’ve seen him. Colo still MOM for me though, shame he is away. Two top defenders needed as our goals against shows.

    Mike is preparing a war chest of 50 million. We are going for the title next season.

    Manager in-charge: Alan Pardew

    Surprising how many people don’t realise we’re already safe. Haven’t you all been agonising over the league table for the last few weeks?

    Pardew out, Rafa/Laurent/Rene in. Colo, Cabaye and Ben Arfa to stay and play for the new manager.

    I’d still take Remy. PEA would be grand. This summer I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy it; no more obsessing for me over who we may or may not sign. This second brush with relegation has taken years off me…have never been so happy to see the end of a season.

    “Well done Man Utd. I hope it will be us one day.”

    This “one day” dream have been in ED and the oldest Newcastle fans mind… Some have already pass away and we are still the same old club if not worst in terms of playing. Just maybe not in financial operation.

    The day will not come in our lifetime to be very honest.

    Unless you are a 10 years old kid. Maybe, just maybe you might have a glimpse of it before you drop dead or maybe not.

    Devonmag I’ve just said the same thing. It absolutely amazes me that some fans don’t realise it yet.
    All I’ve been doing for the last 3 weeks is looking at the fixtures coming up then the results then back to the fixtures.
    Amazing!!

    The slide is finally arrested. Can someone tell me a scenario in which we aren’t safe?
    Meanwhile, three goals without reply, two for Wigan and one for Spurs, and we have our bragging rights back. Yay!

    Jesper

    In my experience, getting nowhere near your targets and then suggesting your bosses have under-achieved tends to be suicide. Even if they accept some of the blame themselves, they will want to see evidence that AP accepts some responsibility and has a track record of learning from his mistakes.
    To fail all these tests, and then say “let’s do things MY way now!” suggests he may lack emotional intelligence.

    I voted for Williamson. Why? I think he did a great job today. I know Colo was magnificent, but Willo gets lots of stick (me included) and to play such a game in those circumstances after being left out for so long is class.

    Colo, not just for his play but for his leadership and respect for the shirt he wears. He dragged this team by the scruff across the finishing line.
    And truthfully, Staylor was not missed as Williamson was at least as good today. I think not only is big Mike often unfairly blamed on these pages but Stephen Taylor is over-rated as a local lad who displays his passion with histrionics. Frankly, it is laughable to think of him in an England shirt. He’s just not at that level. Blocking shots is his forte. The fact is, with good defenders, they shouldn’t happen.
