I’ve Never Won Here In Front Of Newcastle’s Fantastic Crowd

Newcastle gained a lot of friends yesterday by both their display and the result against a top Chelsea side, and a lot of the compliments came from the Chelsea manager himself.

It’s just a wild guess but we don’t think Jose was too happy yesterday

Jose already said that Newcastle deserved the win, because they fought for it and wanted it more than his players – and that the best team won.

But even in other comments there are some compliments in there for Newcastle United.

Here’s an interview an angry Jose gave after the game:

“The result is a consequence of one team not being there.” “We lacked everything. I didn’t like my team today.” “There was no real pressure on the opposition. We were too soft with and without the ball.”

“I’ve never won here. You come here to face a fantastic crowd and you have to have a certain mentality – we didn’t have it.” “I didn’t like the performance. We deserved to lose – Newcastle wanted the game more than us.”

“They fought more than us. If someone had to win, it was Newcastle. We were not aggressive with the ball – we let the game go.”  “I pass it on to my players all the time, but I was smelling at half-time what was going to happen.”

Jose admitted that he was exaggerating a little bit for effect, but it’s true that Newcastle wanted to win more than the London side – and quite honestly we were shocked at just how good Newcastle played in that second half yesterday.

It’s what Newcastle fans live for – a great result and a fantastic performance against a top top side, and we got that yesterday.

And are we over-reacting – of course we are.

Howay The Lads!!

    Great performance in that 2nd half Debuchy has turned it around I just love how he gets stuck in he does not shirk a challenge its no surprise he has looked more solid when Arfa is not on his right wing offering no help

    I know people will complain about Sissoko but he looks good on the right wing last few games he has everything a winger should have in the middle he tends to get robbed of the ball as he needs time but he gets a lot more space on the wings to just roast the fullback which he did to Ashley Cole a fair few times in that 2nd half

    The question is now what does Pardew do ?Arfa was not missed at all if anything our overall attacking play was miles better because when he plays we pass it to him and he either loses it or shoots over the bar must be so hard for a striker to know if he will swing it into the box or fanny about plus for me he looks about a stone overweight at the moment

    Anita again showing his qualities there has to be away to get him to play every game Cabaye has more freedom when hes on the pitch and Sissoko seems to play better when he is on the pitch as well although Tiote has been a warrior recently it should maybe mean Arfa has to drop out for a few games

    Just imagine if we had signed that left winger and striker we so badly needed !

    The Kinnear story about wanting to sign Ferguson is true. As Ibiza mentioned, it had been floating around for a while. Obviously reporters had been warned not to print it, but now that MA has banned the press, they are going to print these embarrassing stories now.

    Great result yesterday, eases the pressure going into the Spurs game.

    I heard on Radio Newcastle that it was Lee Clark that Kinnear asked about Ferguson – and he said “are you taking the p***? There have been signs in the Liverpool, City and Chelsea games that we are starting to pass more confidently and that slowly Pardew is getting a sense of his best formation. I get alarmed about the space we allow opponents on the right side of the pitch – whoever we play on tat side with Debuchy – who needs a LOT of cover!

    What a good post everything I wanted to say and more, so good to see some positive things on this blog. Sure players have bad games and we like a moan when they do but constant raving against the manager,owner and your particular hate figure does no good for the moral of the team who do read these blogs.

    Now if only Jose had accepted Sir Bobby’s invitation to join us as his number 2, he’d experience and support he’ll never get at Chelski or anywhere else for that matter.

    Fingers crossed that our current junta’s displaced and we can go forward.

    Moaning, biased BT commentators were complaining SJP was so quiet yesterday. They had to revise their planned patter when Newcastle rewrote the script.

    Well Jose, you know what they say: “if you can’t beat ’em, come takeover as their manager”. haha jk, good job Pards. Hope it can be sustained.

    I love Jose, what as class act. Great managers are magnanimous in defeat. Compare that to Fergie, who would only dole out excuses.

    Long live the Special1.
