Brilliant Remy Brace Gets All 3 Points For Newcastle


Newcastle were completely dominant in the first half today as they created many chances with some slick passing,  and but for David Marshall in the Cardiff City goal, Newcastle would have been at least a couple of goals ahead ahead before that man Loic Remy scored a couple of goals, and both were excellent efforts from the Frenchman.

Cardiff City v Newcastle United - Premier League

Loic Remy scores brilliant first goal

Newcastle were defending well and playing as well as they did in that second half last Monday night at the start of the game, and after 30 minutes Remy got the ball on the left wing, and he cut inside to his right and then he unleashed a great shot from all of 23 yards out that flew into the bottom left hand corner of  the goal, with Marshall getting a hand to the ball.

That was Remy’s 4th goal in 5 appearances for the Magpies,  but then after 38 minutes Cabaye put the ball into Cisse whose shot was parried by Marshall and the ball rolled out to Remy, who guided the ball brilliantly into the back of the net and Newcastle were two goals up and looking very good.

And then after 43 minutes an audacious free kick from Yohan Cabaye out on the right wing beat Marshall all ends up, but the ball thumped against the upright and came out, and it was almost 3-0.

Newcastle were by far the better side in that first half, but now what will they do in the second half – and they would need to keep this up and not let Cardiff City back into the game.

In the second half Newcastle started well,  and were trying to keep up their intensity, but Cardiff were coming back into the game, and after 58 minutes they pulled one back through Peter Odemwingie, and at that point it looked as though Newcastle could be throwing the 3 points away as Cardiff had the momentum.

The home side  kept pressing but then a lightning break had Newcastle three against two,  and only another brilliant save from Marshall from Moussa Sissoko stopped Newcastle from going 3-1 up – and it was the second superb save from a Sissoko effort as David Marshall had brilliantly tipped the Frenchman’s shot over the bar in the first half.

And Cisse had a great chance to put Newcastle 3-1 up late in the game, but it was that man Marshall again – and to be honest – we could have done with those goals to improve our goal difference.

Then Newcastle should have had a penalty when Cabaye’s cross struck the arm of full-back Andrew Taylor, but the referee waved play on.

But the main thing today was that Newcastle defended well and got a very valuable 3 points, which has lifted us above Cardiff and into 10th place with 10 points from our 7 games.

And that’s  our second away win of the season, and it equals the number of wins we had on the road during all of last season.

Job done today by this Newcastle side, and since it just so happens to be our 41st wedding anniversary today – I’ll enjoy the meal even more tonight with my lovely wife Madeline – and our three kids. 😀

Next up for Newcastle is Liverpool at home in two weeks time.

Howay The Lads!!

    Also just to put out there after the match Remy walked down the tunnell perfectly normal not 1 limp, he was in a track-suit.

    Pardew is to be congratulated on picking a brave team, choosing brave substitutions, and bravely going for a win at a difficult place to win. I thought we would lose, and once again was wrong. But in the end my feeling was that we didn’t have the players to win more convincingly. It all started to go wrong when we took off Remy and it got worse once Cabaye went off, and that is surely the problem at our club. Pardew knows our best team, he knows when to deploy our most talented playmaker, and when the players who are left are knackered or injured or suspended he is short of options. That’s not his fault.

    Some of you lot are really negative! Remy shows frustration and you assume it’s something against Pardew!! Maybe he’s just annoyed he has an injury, maybe he’s just annoyed he missed a couple of chances for his hat trick. Maybe it was misinterpreted and he was just pumped up with his 2 goals.

    New headline, “Remy frustrated with Pardew after substitution – disarray in dressing room”. Blah…

    Well hell man, if he can walk down a tunnel in a track suit, he obviously could have played 25 more minutes at match pace with a knock. I agree you are right!

    Good win and a very important one. A very good first half dominated by Remy and Cabaye but not as convincing in the second half. A must win though considering what’s ahead. A relief to see us play well in that first half. Cisse still looks lost to me and doesn’t really fit into the team’s attacking style. He’s still trying though.

    “74′: Marshall claims Debuchy’s cross. Confirmation that Remy is injured, with Toon initially wanting to replace Cabaye.”

    People talking about limps…have you ever played sport or are you a couch potato?

    A PL player doesn’t need to be so injured that they have a limp in order to come off! I’ve been unable to play tennis or go for a run because of a groin strain recently, but I don’t walk with a limp. Sport is a bit more intense than walking!

    Here’s a fun fact:

    “Remy brace means Newcastle’s last 11 PL goals scored by Frenchmen. Foreign goal streak record is 12 by Arsenal’s French force in 2004.”

    Maybe he did. Tough sh*t. Pardew is the manager and needed to talk a calm and correct decision to save him for the next time. Some people slating Pardew for it are being ridiculous.

    Have to say I was fearing that Bellers would come on and get the equaliser.
    In the event, he’s a fraction of the player he was. Pace gone. This will probably be his last season.

    Great performance but the problems in central defence remain. Colocinni’s presence means we will always remain vulnerable to cheap goals through the middle. Thankfully King Krul papered over the cracks today. HTL . Kudos to Pardew for his selections in other areas on the pitch

    ha, i like that one 🙂

    @jackostoon

    Same thing that happens in every other PL game, the home side that was on the backfoot gets the crowd behind them and gains momentum.

    There were a couple chances for Cardiff, but we weren’t barely hanging in there like some say.

    and wtf Scum score?

    I thought Santon was at fault for their goal. He made a lunge in the centre of the field at the top of the box and missed. Once the ball was switched to our left we were toast with Odemwingie all alone.

    oh and remember man city lost at this place remember just sayin like! not an easy game at all
    we could have been 4 or 5 nil up at half time so overall a great performance regardless of the dip in the second half thats to be expected btw but again pardew gets the blame some of you’s need to understand that that’s what football is like and thats why we love it!
    and how come that doesnt happen for us against the big teams re. scum lol?

    What a difference playing 433 with Remy and Goofy wide – both pressed the defenders and Goofy especially did a load of tracking back. Cardiff resorted to hitting a lot of long balls but with Willo there we had someone who can win it in the air. If Willo hadn’t made the mistake for the goal he would have been my motm.

    In fact, but for that goal and the lift it gave Cardiff, this would have been a faultless display. Pardew picked the best team not the best eleven players and the only downside yet again was Cisse who contributes nothing if he isn’t scoring.

    I hope Pardew sticks with same starting side for Liverpool.

    I think it’s time to cut Cisse loose. He missed a bagful of sitters that other Tom, Dick, Harry forwards would have put in with ease. His confidence, along with his ability is just not there anymore. Not to mention the damage to his psyche, seeing everybody else except him scoring. We do not have the luxury of babysitting him at all. Best to pawn him away to some sucker and use the funds to buy a new striker before everybody in the world realise that he’s damaged goods.

    Well done Pardew. Brave selection and it was good to see Tiote back to his best although you had to feel for Anita being left out.
    Collocinni still looks so vulnerable at times though? Liverpool will be the test with Sturridge and Suarez running at us. Hard few games but no reason why we can’t improve but as Pardew said, it’s consistency we long for.

    I would have to think it will be hard to accept seeing Pardew sit Ben Arfa but continue to play Cisse. Who has had more positive impact for us so far this season? They don’t play the same position but we have an in form striker (Remy) and Gouffran has been very good as well. Do we need Cisse in the starting 11 or Ben Arfa? I’m asking myself that question and I know who I would choose.

    Is AP blind where was Santon for their goal? He shouldn’t have been playing after Monday night but he gets away with every time feel sorry for Anita and Dummet if eva a manager bks a player by name and not form its AP a better team would have got a point from that game instead of hanging on we should of seen the game out comfortably.

    Defense was generally good but I’d agree Santon still has work to do before I say I’m confident in him, especially with Liverpool coming up. Sturridge and Suarez can tear the best defense apart.

    Only disappointment was that Dummett wasn’t ahead of Santon who was poor again. Had to have Jonas brought on to shore up our left today.
