Newcastle Thrashed By Sunderland 3-0


Just when we thought it couldn’t get much worse, Newcastle were decidedly second best against 4th bottom of the league Sunderland this afternoon, and for the second time in a row Sunderland have won at St. James’ Park by a score of 3-0 – and they have now won the last three derby games against Newcastle, and that’s the first time that’s happened in 91 years. 🙁 🙁 🙁

Adam Johnson – after scoring Sunderland’s second goal

And we were wondering who would score the goals with Loic Remy, Yohan Cabaye and Yoan Gouffran all missing the game for one reason or another.

And to tell the truth Sunderland were much the better side today, and it could have been even worse than 3-0 – but 3-0 for the second time running is simply a tragedy for Newcastle United.

That first half display today was simply shambolic and a disgrace to the football club.

And we need to sign some leaders for this team in the summer – there was no courage or guts shown by the vast majority of the Newcastle players today.

But we may be  on a downward path in the league with Chelsea and Tottenham, the next two games for Newcastle – and this after Mike Ashley has allowed the side to be considerably weakened by the sale of Yohan Cabaye last week – and not have him replaced.

And of course Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear were nowhere to be seen today – so they have shown no courage either – just like the players – and Pardew got a shellacking from the fans

And in the last three years Pardew has gone up against Gus Poyet four times – twice against Brighton and twice against Sunderland – and lost every time – so that doesn’t look too good for the future does it?

This is a very very low point for Newcastle, and in our last six league games we have lost four and won only one.

Every single Newcastle player has to look at themselves in the mirror after this game – it was a pathetic and gutless performance.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player Against Sunderland?

    In last 5 games we scored 3 goals BUT only on 1 game. Shocking. But sold 2nd goal scorer and best player and took on loan player who played 10 mins in halfseason and scored 0.

    Short term solution: Get rid of Pardew.
    Long term solution: Get rid of Ashley.

    Time to boycott!

    Pardew not to blame!?! Surely he must have insisted in having a 1 to 1 with ashley to demand action in january If he was to cowardley to do this, then he he is too cowardley to manage our team, which is evident in his cautious approach to football

    wow. so many negative things to say. is it finally acceptable to do that here??? allow me to vent
    -Pardew is looking to get fired, no other way to explain how he lets shola play 90 minutes
    -Shola’s entire game consists of going to ground and looking for foul. Pathetic
    -Saylor is not a starter in EPL
    -De JOng???? ummm not sure what to say. Ill give him the benefit of the doubt, but he did not look good. this is my first time watching him play.
    -Ben arfa, he cannot succeed in this system. too talented for long ball. in addition, how many balls did he play in to shola who was stuck in quick sand?>>???
    -Santon was absolutely terrible and should have come off at half. everyone is due a bad game though

    Phil McNulty’s devastating comments about our club

    BBC ROUNDUP TRANFER WINDOW

    Newcastle United

    Key moves in: Luuk de Jong [from Borussia Monchengladbach] loan.
    Key moves out: Yohan Cabaye [to Paris St Germain] £19m, Jonas Gutierrez [to Norwich] loan, Curtis Good [to Dundee United] loan

    The biggest losers of all in the transfer window – with a lack of activity that is bound to raise further questions about the role of director of football Joe Kinnear.
    On the surface, Kinnear’s job appears to be to do the deals and bring players in to Tyneside. If this is the case, he has hardly been a success.
    Yohan Cabaye left for Paris St-Germain in a £19m deal but there was no midfield replacement for such an influential player, with Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong the only incoming.
    This leaves Newcastle manager Alan Pardew in a weakened position despite his hopes of bringing a player in to fill the vacancy left behind by Cabaye.
    If Newcastle’s season fades, there are likely to be repercussions from fans who will be very unhappy at a failure to significantly strengthen the squad while in a decent Premier League position.

    It’s just as well that we have points in the bag already as we might not be getting many more! It’s negligent of Kinnear and Ashley to allow Cabaye to go without a replacement when they knew all along there was a good chance of that happening. Our bench shows just how bad the situation is. A few more injuries/suspensions and we’ll be relying on Obertan and Gosling. There’s no way Remy will stay and which other decent player will want to come here in the summer if we are on a really bad run?

    Pardew tried something different but failed in both halves.
    But with the personnel we have its not a surprise.

    We have no one for free kicks and corners. santon was abysmal at them

    shola wil start 2 more games.

    We will loose 20m prize money in league positions.

    Why can’t anybody see?,the reason we were the top North East club is because we where ambitious,we payed top money for what we thought were quality players,maybe not the best thing to do but at least it was positive,we wanted to be in Europe,that is what the club and the fans was geared for.Now we are becoming Sunderland.I don’t think you realise how bad this situation is we need rid of Jabba and we need rid asap.

    Kudos to Poyet and Sunderland. Had Johnson not hit the crossbar and Altidore not miss the 1 on 1 with Krul, we could have been hit for at least 5.

    I don’t really blame Pardew as this is probably his managerial style and that he’s ill suited to manage our club but it was Ashley who hired him in the first place.

    If the same performance continues, there’s always a possiliblity that we’ll go down cos no way in hell we’re gonna win any game playing like that.

    The transfer window was a slap in the face off Ashley, today was a kick in the balls.

    As a business concern we are a very good option for Ashley, as a footballing concept w e will simply continue to exist

    im 30 now n ive sat through the lows the highs n more lows but that was disgraceful. but its time for us true fans to hit where it hurts. not the mindless idiots that begged cabaye to stay by singing that song. where was ur thanks. sadly the only way to rid us of cashley is to hurt the club we love. if we stop giving him profits then he will f off then we as fans can then start to rebuild our great club. u ntil then he wont get a single penny off me. lets be heard

    Buck stops with pardew for me. His team, tactics and preparation for today. He needs to manage back in league 1 where his style can still grind out results. We are a mediocre team with average players which I can accept but its the way we lost today in our biggest match of the season no guts passion or desire to win. Pardew when you leave take the ameobis with you please.

    A concerted effort to get rid of Ashley must now be made, blaming the manager and the coaching staff is futile, we can’t even blame JFK, at the end of the day if you know that your best player is going and you refuse to replace him then you will be weaker and morale will be down, how can we expect players to be up for the club when they know that the team will only get weaker, blame Pardew as much as you like, but your wrong, we cannot blame JFK either, how can we, if JFK was permitted to get the players in then I’m sure he would, it hasn’t happened due to one man so we should all put Pardew and JFK to the back of our minds and concentrate on harrassing Ashley out of our club, worry about the backroom staff once we are rid of him.

    How can we win when

    1) we play the worst striker in FOOTBALL HISTORY (Shola Sh*t Ameobi) for 90 mins

    2) play Saylor when Mapou is part of the team who won against chelsea and Man Utd simple becaus he is a “geordie”

    Kinnear- He has to ATLEAST do the honourable thing and answer questions about why he is so incredibly incompetent.

    “Judge me on my signings”
    – Okay……….

    Why is he allowed to just rake in his retirement fund without even answering questions? This is total cronyism and profiteering.

    Complete and utter humiliation, a farce from beginning to end, diabolical passing and tackling, the Joke and Cashley have made us a laughing stock. Small wonder we ca,nt sign any half decent players, we are a club with no ambition, happy with a mid table position. Mr Ashley this is a football club not a business, this really hurts..

    He is as entitled to an opinion as you are

    That’s a fact!
    You know it we all know it.
    The team know it as there shocking performance shows.

    Perspective:

    Racing Santander’s players refused to play on Thursday night due their wages not being paid for 6 months.

    Brian McDermott was sacked before the owner took over Leeds!

    NUFC were awful. There were many contributory factors:

    1) appalling tactics – reverting to hoofball
    2) selection of players – Shola
    3) subs – predictable and unhelpful
    4) Low confidence and morale of players – no motivation, no ambition in the dressing room
    5) Ashley and JK abilities in the transfer window
    6) Sunderland played very well
    7) Poyet got his tactics spot on

    NUFC will plod on. Fans will still spend money, turn up to the stadium and we will all keep moaning.

    This spanking is becoming an annual occurrence. I’ve praised Anita’s games but that penalty was just stupid. In the second, bad luck (watch carefully) but Santon should’ve covered the only advancing player. HBA, I’m a fan but his passing was abysmal. Ameobi, well the wrong one was subbed. The mackem killer label don’t hold no more.

    Bottom line: outfoxed by Gus, once more.

    Good news: we’re not in danger 🙂

    You can sack who you want but it will make no difference until the cancer at the core of the club is gone. I have stayed away for two years. Its the only way to get rid of the cancer. Anybody who goes to matches and “supports the team and not the regime” is a twat. All they are doing is supporting the cancer. You are feeding the cancer you morons!!!!
