Newcastle Should Have Won But It Was A Good Point

Alan Pardew had prepared Newcastle well for this contest at Norwich, but Newcastle couldn’t take one of the many chances they created, and came away with a 0-0 draw with Loic Remy, our top goalscorer with 11 Premier League goals this season was sent off eight minutes from the end of the game.

Loic Remy getting red card tonight

Remy will now miss the next three games and that will be a hammer blow to Newcastle, although Dutch striker Luuk de Jong is expected to be signed tomorrow after taking his Newcastle medical today.

And after the game this is what the Newcastle manager had to say about the game – and also the sending off of both Loic Remy and Bradley Johnson:

“We should have won – we had numerous chances. It’s still a good point though, because it’s a difficult place to come.”  “We should have won this with hitting the woodwork three times.”

“They (Remy and Johnson) pushed each other, the arms are raised and the heads have met,”  “There is enough there for them both to get sent off but Johnson, he should be really disappointed in himself for the way he reacted as if he had been head-butted.”

“That was not on at all, I am surprised at him because I thought he was an honest pro.” 

It was very disappointing that Remy will now kiss the next three games after his French International team-mate Mathieu Debuchy missed the last three games for being sent off at West Brom.

    I think Shola, Sammy and Saylor need to start in the Derby.

    Only Geordies know what a massive occasion it is. Hell even bring on Armstrong with 15 mins to go if things aren’t going well.

    The Geordies will lift more than the frenchmen.

    Not sure why so many people are kicking off about tonights performance, for about 80 mins we were in complete control, played some pretty nice stuff and could of been out of sight. Yeh we missed some chances but if a couple of the attempts that hit the woodwork had of gone in we’d of been buzzing tonight. Considering the last couple of days I thought the lads put a decent shift in. Main positives for me were HBA, Debuchy straight back in the thick of it and also Sammy who looked as dangerous and involved as I’ve ever seen him.

    Cabaye will be a big miss but he is not this irreplaceable god that a lot of people seem to make out. He has been in fantastic form recently yes but he has also had quiet spells. As long as we got £20m and re-invest it all in the squad then I’m happy, and anyone who says its a shocking deal because Fellaini cost more….. its football…*t happens!
