Newcastle’s Shock 3-2 Defeat To Hull


Even though Loic Remy put Newcastle United ahead twice in the first half, and the Magpies had completely dominated the game in the first 20 minutes, some poor defending from Newcastle led to some sloppy goals being conceded, and Newcastle lost this game 3-2, and it was not a good day at the office today, especially for the Newcastle defense.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Hull City Tigers - St James' Park

Loic Remy – hit two goals for Newcastle – could have had a hat-trick

The defense has been Newcastle’s weakness in the last couple of seasons,  and after dominating the game and Loic  Remy scoring a nice header, Hull got a goal out of nothing after 26 minutes, with almost their first chance of the game, when Brady hit the ball past Krul.

Loic Remy then scored a nice goal just before half time to give Newcastle a 2-1 interval lead, but a couple of minutes into the second half, Ahmed Elmohamady rose high to a left wing free kick and headed the ball  home, with not one Newcastle defender anywhere near him.

And then a fantastic goal for Hull after 76 minutes won the game, and it was again out of nothing, when a seemingly harmless left wing cross was hit on the volley superbly by Aluko with his left foot, and the ball flew into the back of the net.

And while Newcastle tried to get an equalizer it didn’t come although in the first minute of the five minutes added time Loic Remy had a glorious chance to equalize,  when he had an open goal from five yards out, but put the ball wide.

Newcastle looked a very good side in the first half of the first half, but some lax defensive play had us concede three goals, and Alan Pardew will need to do a lot more work on the  defense, after this rather shaky display.

This has taken the wind out of Newcastle’s sails, but going forward we looked a good side, especially in the first half, but the defense looked shaky throughout this game.

This is how we saw the game – as it happened.

Newcastle started the game like a steam train and were passing the wall around nucleic and it was after 11 minutes that the almost inevitable goal came for Newcastle when Sissoko crossed from the right wing, and Cisse miss-hit the ball back into the center, and after one bounce it was Loic Remy who headed the ball nicely into the net.

And it was all Newcastle as they dominated the game with Hull in their half most  the time, but then Hull had a chance when Danny Graham headed the ball downwards  into an empty net.

But somehow Tim Krul was able to save it, and it was scrambled away but then Hull came straight back, and the Newcastle defense had not regrouped.

And it was Grady down the left wing who hammered the ball into the back of the net – and Alan Pardew will not have been happy at all with Newcastle ‘s defending and it was 1-1 as Hull scored completely against the run of play.

And Hull started to come back into the game after their goal, and they looked a decent attacking force with the Newcastle defense looking a little shaky.

On 35 minutes Danny Graham found himself straight through the middle, but Coloccini got a tackle in and was able to clear the ball – good play by the captain.

It was a lot more even with Hull now giving a good account of themselves as Newcastle tried to get going again.

But then just before half time from a Newcastle attack down the left when Cabaye had a shot which seemed to come back off Cisse and it rolled to Remy just outside penalty box, and the Frenchman hit the ball beautifully first time into the back of the net.

It was his second goal of the game, and the crowd went wild, as the Frenchman was having some game for the Magpies.

Half time came with Newcastle ahead but Hull showed they could be dangerous, and they seemed to be attacking down their left wing and targeting Mathieu Debuchy, but Newcastle will need to be more solid in defense, and not leak any more poor goals.

Just three minutes into the second half a free kick from the left wing from Brady was headed into the net by Ahmed Elmohamady, and there was not one Newcastle player who even challenged for the ball – more schoolboy defending by Newcastle, and this will be a worry to the Newcastle manager. It’s 2-2.

After 61 minutes Cabaye had to come off injured and he was replaced by Yoan Gouffran, and it was an even game and with 20 minutes to go, it was anybody’s game.  On 72 minutes the ineffective Papiss Cisse was replaced by Marveaux.

After 76 minutes Aluko scored a fabulous goal,  when he hit a ball on the volley from a left wing cross, that gave Tim Krul no chance, and amazingly Newcastle had conceded three goals against the newly promoted side.

After 86 minutes Check Tiote came on for Mathieu Debuchy, as Hull seemed to be seeing out this game fairly easily, as Newcastle were finding it difficult to penetrate a solid Hull defense.

And in the first minute of  five minutes of added time Loic Remy had an open goal to shoot at from just six yards out, but somehow he shot the ball wide of the mark – a terrible miss and it would have been his hat-trick and given Newcastle a point.

But it wasn’t to be, and Hull could even have been the better side over the full 90 minutes.

This is the third time Hull have played at St. James’ Park and they have won every time. 🙁

It’s a very poor result to be beaten at home by Hull City, and while we looked good in the first 30 minutes of the game, the performance overall was only mediocre.

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy (Cheick Tiote 86), Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Davide Santon; Vurnon Anita, Moussa Sissoko, Yohan Cabaye (Yoan Gouffran 62); Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse (Sylvain Marveaux 74), Loic Remy

    ok

    i really do see the problems above pardew, both clowns,, and ther not fit to run the club

    but this squad we have is fantastic, some fantastic players we have,
    but our team has no shape, no system,
    hull just showed us with a inferior team and not the best manager, how football should be played , getting the best out of your better players, and sticking to systems

    i like cisse , but he carnt hold the ball up, it just dont stick to him,
    our fullbacks get forward way to often without creating a single thing
    Anita was outstanding for us Again today,
    sissoko box to box but runs into trouble to often,
    HBA love him, and we should build the team around him and xploit his talent more often, ,he is wasted on the right side, he ALWAYS cuts in

    pardew is cluelesssss

    Very poor defending, plain and simple. Pards played the game right but Debuchy and surprisingly Colo were just bad overall. How many times did Debs knock the ball to no one in the box? Wasted attack over and over again.

    nobody should be blaming pardew for this, the defence was atrocious. We simply went down to a hard working hull city side. Remember when we lost to west brom, norwich, fulham and wigan in the season we finished 5th? Every team has games like these, liverpool lost to southampton. Man city lost to sunderland in their title winning season.

    “if any blame lies with pardew with why this was a defeat give full detail as to why.

    pardew started every player you wanted him to start
    we have 2 FB who always like to get forward which again you all were shouting about

    we play this 4-3-3 which you all want

    finally the team were not hoofing it just passing.”

    What game was you watching? He may of started the same team and we were playing very good first 20minutes or so then Pardew decides he has the game and switches back to parking the bus tactics and then changes to 4-4-2 hoof the ball tactics. Cisse is then LW and he takes off cabaye off for Gouffran, I understand cabaye had a knock but why not for tiote? Take Cisse off for Gouffran.

    Also if anyone notices, first season Cisse came here was his best cause he carried on his form from Germany. Then Pardew wanted him to change to Target man instead and this has destroyed him as a striker and playing him out of position as well.

    Cisse should never wear the number 9 shirt, he shouldn’t of played today, HBA was shambles today but fair to Hull there players would not let HBA run at them every time he had the ball there were at least 2-3 Hull players pressuring him

    thats the key point that most miss about cisse,, pardew has killed him, by playing in out of position and having no supply,
    hull created much better chances for danny graham who is half the player cisse is

    If we could have won this game,we were on top of the table.
    But now,we’re 11th.
    What a difference!!

    And today,both the players and AP should take the responsibility.
    The players except Remy and Anita,they weren’t good enough.
    And for AP,changing the formation to 4-4-2 and play hoofball was an awful decision.
    Yes Hull was playing well against 4-3-3,but at least 4-3-3 had a possibility to score than 4-4-2
    After changing to 4-4-2,we were awful.

    Change your minds the players,train hard and show us some fantastic performance against Everton next week!
    I still believe in this team.

    I might have confused some with this post on previous thread

    “if any blame lies with pardew with why this was a defeat give full detail as to why.

    pardew started every player you wanted him to start
    we have 2 FB who always like to get forward which again you all were shouting about

    we play this 4-3-3 which you all want

    finally the team were not hoofing it just passing.”

    I wasn’t actually blaming him myself I was just asking any person who does put the blame all at him to give full reason when he did what they all want him to do and have the type of players they want.

    I blame it mostly on the players apart from anita and remy

    debuchy being the worst

    I thought a win was on the cards today. I’ve been beguiled, yet again in thinking we are better than we are. We are poor.
    Cisse has probably been giving more game time in PL history for someone playing so poorly.
    Defence buckles under slight pressure -then goes into panic mode.
    Captain Colo -ball watches. Repeat of 2012 -2013 season coming up.

    this team doesnt know how to play football. No joke! We have to get a manager who can insert an attacking playing style, and bring the ball down to the ground..

    Pardew says he going to play attacking football, but then you have to link midfield and strikers, not just bring on 3 strikers and hoof it up to them

    pardew out!!
