Newcastle Beaten Again By Bottom Of The League Sunderland


For the second game running Sunderland got the better of Newcastle United, this time at the Stadium of Light this afternoon, and for the second derby game running a new Sunderland manager propelled their season forward with a win against the Magpies, and amazingly this afternoon the Black Cats quadrupled the number of points they had in the league before the game – and once again this Newcastle side let their fans down for the second derby running.

Where’s all the Geordie pride gone?

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Sunderland v Newcastle United - Stadium of Light

Steven Fletcher heads home Sunderland’s early goal after 5 minutes

It was also the third time in a row that a Gus Poyet side has beaten an Alan Pardew coached Newcastle side.

Steven Fletcher got an early goal for Sunderland after just 5 minutes as Sunderland out fought Newcastle for the first 25 minutes of the game, bu then Mathieu Debuchy equalized for Newcastle after 58 minutes before substitute Fabio Borini got the late winner with five minutes to play with a terrific goal.

After five minutes Adam Johnson took a corner and was given the ball back and he flighted a nice cross into the penalty area and Steven Fletcher out-jumped Paul Dummett and headed the ball into the net.

And then a good shot was only parried by Tim Krul, and Dummett hesitated rather than just kick the ball away and Jozy Altidore was first to the ball but he didn’t take what was a decent chance for the American.

At half time Sunderland were ahead 1-0 and it was the first time in five years that Sunderland had been ahead at the Stadium of Light.

Papiss Cisse was introduced at the start of the second half in place of Moussa Sissoko, and Newcastle managed to get the equalizer after 58 minutes, as Ben Arfa hit the ball right across the goal and Mathieu Debuchy was there to hit the ball home.

It looked like the game was heading for a draw, but then Borini got the ball from Jozy Altidore 25 yards out from goal, and he hit a tremendous shot into the goal to give Sunderland the win – their second win in succession over Newcastle – when was the last time that happened?

And Newcastle fans now have to endure yet another defeat from Sunderland – who started this game with just one point from eight games and only five goals scored, but they put two past Newcastle this afternoon to get all 3 points.

In reality, after about the first 30 minutes Newcastle were the better side, although we were run ragged in that first 15 minutes or so, and when we equalized it looked like we could win the game, but again we didn’t get the result – and it’s not good.

Again we think the defense is Newcastle’s weakness this season, and we have now conceded 16 goals in just 9 Premier League games, which is on track to be 68 goals conceded after the full 38 games – which is exactly what we conceded last season – the most goals we have ever conceded in the Premier League.

So surely this points to the defense again being our weakness, and shouldn’t we think about bringing in one or two top defenders in January?

Newcastle played quite well in the second half, but this is another terrible result to endure for Newcastle fans. 🙁

Fact.

    Lescott and Richards would be two great signings. Unlikely though.

    I actually don’t hate AP so much.
    He loves this club and have some passion,good relationship with the players.

    But I can’t stand with these horrible results in the derby.
    Our record at SOL was 5win,5draw,only 1 lose until today.

    The simple truth is , if we had a decent owner rather than the cretin we have now , pardew would be sacked – simple as that . As long as ash is the owner , pardew stays !

    oh dear now all of the negative people are coming out from under the rocks. FFS DID YOU NOT WATCH THE GAME, THERE WAS ONLY ONE TEAM PLAYING FOOTBALL TODAY AND THAT WAS US!! JUST NO END PRODUCT. AGAIN SUNDERLAND SCORED FROM A STUPID FOUL. ALL THEY DID WAS PLAY HOOFBALL. YES I AGREE THEIR PLAYERS WERE HUNGRIER AND THE DEFENDING WAS POOR, BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT WHEN PARDEW’S ONLY GOT WILLO AND DUMMETT AS OPTIONS BECAUSE OF ASHLEY AND JFK FAILING TO BUY ANYONE???

    luarent!!

    We have a team full of internationals bar 3. An attacking 3 of Ben Arfa, Remy and Gouffran with Cisse on the bench, we missed relegation last year via Swansea helping us out.

    please tell me out of these internationals its the managers fault why they didn’t perform!????

    Bunch of negative muppets on here again. I’d seriously hate to be in a war alongside some of you lot!

    We were the better team and especially dominant in the second half. They perhaps played with a bit more passion and energy than we did and that’s crucial in a derby. They were at home too and with a new manager.

    Blame the manager and the owner as much as you like, I wonder what the players think about the crap that some fans send their way and the demands for the manager (who signed many of them) to leave.

    I’m not mincing words any more. Anyone demanding Pardew or Ashley to leave it an idiot. Demand for Ashley to do more for sure, chant and get on his case every day to either inspire him to improve things or let someone else do it, but incessant infighting and unreasonable demands NEVER helped a club and won’t help us.

    I get that people are passionate, so am I (hence this message), but you can be passionate and an idiot at the same time. And passion is no excuse for idiocy…

    We need to actually play the ball in to and around the box to score and not bloody just hit them from anywhere.Cisse and Remy are clinical finishers and if they balls were coming in the would finish them, but when no balls are coming in then there is nothing there for them to attack.

    manx (from previous)

    Do you not think we rely on individual goals or scrappy rebounded efforts.

    I’m not trying to be negative, it’s just what I see.

    Only worked goals i remember this year are the debuchy today, remy against everton, hba against villa, thats all of them…3.

    Could possibly include the remy goal against hull…what he scores of a cisse shot what turns into a cross.

    But for me the rest are wonder goals or scrappy efforts.

    Manx, they are players of an international standard, other teams don’t get that luxury.

    It is the manager’s objective to get players to work cohesively and make sure their minds are ready to play every game. If it’s not working, it’s still up to them to get that out of them, both tactically and motivationally.

    Defence is our weakness when we have our top 3 centre backs out? Genius observation. Take Jagielka, Distin and whoever Alcaraz out of Everton and see who they play.

    Dummett played because Streete and Good have very little experience of the PL, I’m not even sure if Tav is fit and Dummett was pretty damn good against Liverpool.

    Genius posters on here in hindsight, a bit like the geniuses calling for Ben Arfa to be sent off before he created the goal or those geniuses demanding we sign Remy permanently before 2 poor games and when he has a potential rape case hanging over his head and doesn’t even want to decide until the end of the season.

    No passion today, where was the running of Goufron and Remy they did not turn up, and what the fck did Cisse do, absolutely nothing , no guts should be pushed out in January. Like watching a bad dream.

    How were we the better team? I had it a very even game.

    We maybe picked up more possession but did we create anything other than 25 yard shots with it? Only once for the debuchy goal, we never looked like scoring…and goals win games not possession as we laughed about last week.

    I don’t want to slate our boys, but we were so poor, and not just today, it’s been all season in the final third, we don’t look like creating.

    I’ve had it with sissoko, cisse and HBA this season. They have contributed absolutely nothing to the team all season. We need to invest in british players who play with heart and determination.

    make no mistake about , while I think the players should have a hard look in the mirror tonight , there is only one guy to blame for this

    take a bow Mr Alan Pardew

    you set our team up to control the game rather than win it, HBA is not a CF remy is Not a left winger , goofy looks lost out there

    our players look lost out there , and the player looking the most lost is poor sissoko , I wasn’t quite sure why we started with 3 DMC again and yes there was 3 cabaye did not get forward he kind of sat around the half way line

    cisse looks lost, I like him he chases things down and get no support from anyone

    how anyone can stick up for pardew after a second defeat to Sunderland where on both occasions we show no fight is beyond me

    a football fan supports the team not the manager,

    TS that debuchy goal today was not a worked goal
    what debuchy did was continued to run thinking if their is a rebound he would be their waiting .

    all HBA actually did was try to score a goal himself rather than attempt a cross.

    Yup, three points given away and in this instance, I think we can thank our very own Director of Football, Joe (Judge Me On My Signings) Kinnear (JMOMSK).

    JMOMSK wasn’t in the door five minutes and he vetoed Douglas’s signing and sold the very versatile James Perch.

    Now wouldn’t they have been handy to have available today?

    But, as JKOMSK was an Ashley inspired appointment, he’ll be totally absolved of any responsibility for poor performances and we he won’t put his hands up to take any either.

    The pressure’ll pile on Pardew and I don’t believe he should be held as completely responsible for bad results.

    He’ll have contributed to them but he can only work with what hr has available to him and fans need to bear that Olin mind!

    transfer seriously!??
    so what your saying is that teams should only rely on team goals?
    for me the point of buying players, is for there quality so if they score great goals you expect it
    and to just dismiss it as lucky is scandalous in my view
    you might as well have a team full of keane-esc players otherwise!
    goalscorers are exactly that wether it be a tap in or a wonder goal but i still think we’re finding our feet!
    we certainly aren’t hoofing it and after a few games why hit the self destruct button!
    we’re building but the buttons already been hit by the looks of some of you’s

    We only started to wake up and play football when we scored and even then we were still second best. It was a hopeless performance. And Tiote can’t pass a ball to save his life, woeful.

    Oh and someone tell Cabaye he’s a great player on his day but he’s no Zidane and never will be. The amount of wild shots from well over 30 yards he has every match is ridiculous. At least get them on target mate!!

    Aimless long distance shots that bounce of defenders and put the defending team back on the offensive ( by passing our strikers and midfield) is avoidable. Especially in the last five minutes we shouldn’t be giving the ball away and Ben Arfas tired shot ( with 3 defenders in front of him ) and then Tiote not preventing the free kick until we had defenders back shows a lack of nouse. We need an imposing central defender with a mouth on him to stop this sort of school boy performances. Not one defence splitting incisive pass all day. We need to take points away from home and a draw but not a loss is how other teams move up the table when winning at home. Colo is on his last legs, Taylor injury prone, Mbiwa lacking confidence and Wilko is Wilko, We need two new central defenders in January- any ideas ?
