Fantastic 4-1 Win Marred By Manager Being Sent Off


Newcastle had a great 4-1 win at the KC Stadium this afternoon, which made up for the 3-2 loss at home last September, but the win was marred by Alan Pardew being sent off after he seemed to head butt David Meyler after a confrontation over the ball.

Yoan Gouffran in action today

Meyler was given a yellow card, but now Alan Pardew will likely face a ban for a number of games., and the Newcastle manager really needs to control himself on the sidelines.

Newcastle got off to a very good start in their yellow shirts, blue shorts and white socks, when Sissoko scored a beautiful goal after just 10 minutes, his second of the season.

Loic Remy got the ball to Mathieu Debuchy down the right wing, and the Frenchman pulled the ball back to Moussa, who  hit the ball first time into the back of the net with his right foot – tremendous skill from the big man.

Newcastle put up with some Hull attacking for a lot of the first half but held out well, and then three minutes before half time, Remy was clean through and he made no mistake, after just a terrible back pass from Figueroa.

But just two minutes into the second half Hull got a goal when Curtis Davies headed home from a free kick from Steve Bruce, as Tim Krul failed to get anywhere near the ball.

After 55 minutes Newcastle got their third goal and it followed another fast breakaway, and Gouffran pot in a decent shot but goalkeeper McGregor fumbled the ball, and Moussa was on hand to tap the ball into the back of the net for his second goal of the game.

The confrontation between Meyler and Pardew happened after 72 minutes and is shown above –  and Alan was sent to the stands and the Hull player was booked.

And then in added time with Hull pressing, Newcastle broke away quickly and caught Hull short at the back again, and Vurnon Anita was able to stab the ball home for his first goal ever in the Premier League.

It was a great second win in a row for Newcastle, a very good performance, and proof that we can still score some goals when we have to.

But it was spoiled by the manager again being unable to control himself, and it’s unlikely the FA will be lenient on Pardew this time.

Let us know who you think Newcastle’s best player was today.

    Ha ha we won 4-1 away from home against an in form team and people still bitching about pardew.

    No he shouldn’t have done it and I bet he regrets it but things are done in the heat of the moment and it happened.

    No one is defending it but let’s talk about the great result.

    If pardew only knew the ammunition he’d just given blog moron catchy in Norway I’m convinced he wouldn’t have done it!!!!

    It’s pardews explanations and comments that are more embarrassing than his thuggery. I’d love to see him sacked but his antics today aren’t enough to merit it.

    I am not defending what he has done, by the way. I just wonder what some of you would have done when attacked by a player? Espescially in the heat of battle. Fergie was never sacked after a string of foul language and hostile behaviour over his career. This is only because its pardew. It seems the better manager you are, the more badly behaved you are allowed to be.

    Harley, this could be a lot bigger than just a win. I agree it’s a shame that the incident has took the shine off what has been a goddess performance and great win.
    The consequences to the club and it’s reputation, not to mention its effect on the team may be immense.

    Excellent win today brilliant football over the full 90 mins (hull had moments but that happens, in general we controlled the full match).

    The third goal was the perfect example to show what getting that extra player or two forward and in the box can do, turns a decent shot/save into a goal.

    Great set up of the team by Pardew and great execution by the players.

    Well he has brought shame and embarrassment to NUFC – You know that side that you support

    On the incident with Pardew…for me he was wrong, provoked but wrong to act like that, it does’t look good.

    As for a headbutt, not so sure, think he put his head in but more to get in the lads face, if it was a headbutt he missed by not far short of a yard.

    If the pardew/meyler incident has taken *any* gloss off the victory, then I suggest you follow tiddlywinks.

    I had actually forgotten about the incident until I logged on here.

    Great performance, great win.

    End of.

    Let talksport sensationalise the incident.

    Hypocritical a**holes on here.

    One minute Pardew is a cockney get with no commitment to the club – next he’s worse than the guy who punches the horse.
    He’s had the botle to ‘fess up and take the flak he will deservedly get.
    Nowhere near as bad as some will make out and nowhere near as bad as many career ending professional fouls or kung fu kicking a fan.
    Heat of the moment and also the player was the initial aggressor.
    No justification but plenty of lee room for the (over) reaction.

    AND… we have just inflicted the biggest defeat of the season on Hull (at home), avenged our defeat at SJP and our side look like they are readjusting to the loss of Cabs. So a great result….

    Catchy — what was your prediction for this one ?
    Mine was a score draw tbh

    Thays the media to blame though. Plenty of managers do and say embarrasing things. It is an unfortunate part of football. If we jad been in a champs league spot with a different manager, and the same thing had happened, no one would be calling for anyones head.

    Special, it’s all over sky sports and the BBC. if you think the FA can ignore it now you are mistaken. This is not an anti Pardew rant, just stating it as I see it.
    The press love a story, and this is a beaut.

    Whether you, me or others see it as a big incident or not the media and no doubt the FA will see it as a huge one, as they normally do.

    How long can he get banned for though really. I mean suarez got 8 games for racist abuse and 10 (i think) for actually biting a player….so surely it wasn’t as serious as that.

    I think if there is logic the will got for 5/6 game ban as it’s not like a shove in the game between players as that can be provoked by a bad tackle so more than 3 games but not as bad as racism/biting so less than 8.

    I got to say Man u 1st Hull 2nd for performance, when Hull scored in the 1st minute in the second half I was hoping the lads would fight back and not stick to defence all the way through.

    I’m glad my hopes was answered 🙂
