Newcastle Lose 2-0 To Manchester City

Newcastle played well tonight and were solid for the first 90 minutes, when we held Manchester City to 0-0, and had some decent chances to score during the game.

Soccer - Capital One Cup - Fourth Round - Newcastle United v Manchester City - St James' Park

Mike Williamson in action tonight

In the first half both Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse had decent chances to score, and if anything Newcastle were the better side in that first half.

It was more even in the second half and the game after 90 minutes ended at 0-0.

But it was the old story and in extra time the Manchester City attack penetrated the Newcastle defense twice thopruihg Dzeko and Negredo in just five minutes to put the result beyond doubt.

Newcastle tried to come back into the game, and after 23 minutes of extra time a good shot by Ben Arfa was cleared off the line by Joleon  Lescott.

The full time whistle was blown .and for the  13th time in the last 15 games against Manchester City, we lost the game.

And not only that, but the players could now be tired for the upcoming tough league game against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

It was a good effort by our lads but at the end of the day it’s another defeat.

We’ll have a full report out of the game out very soon.

    Cisse was one of the biggest hits the PL had ever seen with his goals firing us into almost a whisker of a CL place, his reward was being shifted out to the RW and the CL ambitions he was possibly sold vanished into thin air with a barren summer in the transfer market, the guy clearly doesn’t want to be here.

    Zero chance of Europe again now, even fair play place is completely out the window with our discipline record. What is there to look forward to really, whats the f-in point.

    This is a very divided opinion I am sure.

    I for one have faith in Pardew, I think we were the better side and played some very good football against one of the most expensive sides in the world.

    I think we are improved and going in the right direction.

    An extra centre-back and striker, and we could have a team on our hands.

    I am not much jazzed about facing Chelsea but we have had some good results against them recently, I do not fear Tottenham, they are not all they are made out to be.

    Have Ashley and Kinnear found a way to get rid of Pardew who went against their wishes and went out win the cup tie

    Imagine the press – Pardew sacked fir showing some ambition and a wish to please the fans!

    Another own goal on the horizon?

    The best chance Cisse had was the first one that Shola put in from a Cisse miskick. Cisse’s shot from that distance was not even on target.
    If we had a pound for every time he was offside we could afford a £20m replacement for him!

    3 losses on the bounce, soon to be 5 with Chelsea and spurs? Hard times ahead.

    That’s what I said. We only have one player, Remy. We need more than one! Cisse is seriously lacking confidence, Ameobi isn’t a regular scorer either, he’s more like our Heskey. Ben Arfa and Goofy should chip in with at least 10 goals a season like Cabaye does.

    We need more goal threats.

    Remy has been poor the last 2 games anyway and we know the PL has to be the priority. Every club rests players.

    We put a shift in, every player played like he meant it. Unlike Sunday, there is NO shame in this defeat.

    The team played to a plan, they showed desire and passion, they tried to win it and you cant ask much more. The down side? Anything less against Chelski and Spuds would be classed as Cowardise in the face of the Enemy – punishment by firing squad!!

    Shola should have stayed on the pitch as he was bossing boyata. Cisse is papiss poor and really needs to sort himself out, no idea where that striker from 2 seasons ago has gone. Anyways lads, it’s only the carling cup and remember it was man city. Let’s just beat chekski on Saturday and things wont look as sht.

    Hang on did Ed say players might be tired for Saturday ?
    Poor things , I bet they have someone to drive them home in their Ferrari. ‘ cos it hurts to change gear.
    Apart from Mr T who will have to go home on the bus!
    Pathetic ,we loose again . Only the FA Cup to go for now.

    You can’t say he went out of his way to sit bait and lose the game, surely?

    Maybe I was listening to two BBC commentators who were making up their live commentary, trying to give listeners the impression we were trying to win the game?

    Is Pardew out the best you can do? That’s been done to death.

    Unless you’ve git hold of a copy of the well-worn record!

    1) seriously, we still WONT won any cup for the next 2-3 seasons

    2) sadly but true, of all the matches we lose – we got the ability to WIN. cisse missed chances prove to be one of the reason

    3) Money DO buy success, look at Man City. we are same level as them last few seasons.
