This Gutsy Player Is Our Man Of The Match Yesterday

8:50 am, Monday, January 13th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

When Cheick Tiote captains Newcastle, it seems to inspire the Ivorian into playing at his very best and yesterday, apart from the brilliant goal he had disallowed, Cheick put in a great display for Newcastle and was everywhere in midfield, and he is our Man of the Match for yesterday’s home defeat by Manchester City.

It was a great performance from the lads yesterday – but we now have to keep up this form against the lesser sides in the league, and start getting back to our winning ways.

The next three games against West Ham, Norwich City and Sunderland are those types of games, against relegation threatened sides.

Comments welcome.

    I think a solution is whenever there is a goal or penalty footage can be reviewed up to 5 seconds prior to the event to see whether a player was offside or fouled in the lead up.

    And the TV review overrides any decision previously made by the on field ref.

    This eliminates what we saw yesterday.
    It eliminates offsides.
    It eliminates shirt pulling in the box.
    It eliminates diving.

    TDsarf,You point out that Boumsong and Owen wouldn’t have been signed under the current regime, just remind yourself that you’d never have seen Shearer or Cole in black and white shirts either.

    Bit of help needed her please lads, does anyone know when tickets go on sale for the Sunderland game?

    We played well but City had their chances too.

    Negredo missed an open goal
    Fernandinho’s header

    we can’t seem to score no matter how well we play. look at Arsenal and City last 2 games against these two.

    Remy I think either needs a rest or is tapering off in his first full season of PL.

    We need 2 strikers for sure at least.

    we are definitely guilty of not being able to raise our game against lesser opponents.

    We should have murdered Cardiff but instead didn’t even show up.

    We should have murdered west ham but had one shot on target

    We should have murdered hull but didn’t…

    …yet we do what we did against chelsea, spurs and Man U and to be fair put in a great shift yesterday.

    ps…I don;t know if anyone saw nasri’s gloating interview before the game where he says he always plays well against us and he always wins and he always looks forward to playing us because he has lots of space…well all I can say is well done M’Biwa…good tackle that one!
