Newcastle U18 Go Down 3-2 Against Chelsea – Video


Newcastle United U18 side lost 3-2 tonight at St, James Park to Chelsea in a corker of a game, that had Newcastle scoring a controversial equalizer after Chelsea had gone ahead – and Newcastle were 2-1 up at half time, after Chelsea made a bad mistake and Adam Armstrong accepted the gift to put the Magpies ahead.

Olivier Keemen – scored controversial first goal for Magpies

Dominic Solanke gave Chelsea the lead after 22 minutes, but by half time Newcastle were leading 2–1 with goals from Olivier Kemen after 28 minutes and Adam Armstrong after 37 minutes,  following Newcastle pressure.

Here is the controversial first goal for the Magpies  from Olivier Keemen.

Shades of Diego Maradona against England back in 1986 in another quarter-final – the last eight of the World Cup, when the great Bobby Robson was the England manager.

However, two goals in the second half from Alex Kiwomya after 52 minutes and then Jeremie Boga after 64 minutes were enough to take Chelsea through to the semi-finals of the competition, where they will meet Arsenal.

Our lads did very well to get to the last eight, but in the end just came up a little short against a top side.

It has not been a good day for Newcastle, and it started with Loic Remy indicating he will not be signing for Newcastle in the summer, but wants to join a top five club.

Alan Pardew was then handed a seven game ban from the FA for that headbutt on Davide Meyler, the first three of which will be a stadium ban, and now our lads have narrowly lost to Chelsea in the FA Youth Cup.

Not a particularly good day for Newcastle fans.

But hey – tomorrow is another day! 😀

    The youngsters look like they’ve got a very good flair about them, they look energetic especially aarons, armstrong and kemen. Always pressurising the ball and being expressive.

    Gosh Ed, even when talking about the u18’s we still hear about Remy not joining.

    A couple of times I have seen the u18’s Kemen always stands out with Armstrong obviously. Aarons has bags of skill and potential and can hopefully become more consistent.

    I would be embarrassed to celebrate that if it was me, it’s a far cry from Aaron hunt when he refused a penalty the other night. I hate it when people cheat

    You’ve got to give credit to Remy for being candid over his intentions for next season, as well as for his contributions on the pitch. Part guilt you’d think, over ditching us so late for QPR, but he has appeared to have developed the decency and maturity to recognise he can’t string us along here and now.

    when you think about it– we have pardew guilty on 3 counts of bringing the game into disrepute, the push on the linesmen, the disgusting rant at pelligrini, now the headbut on an opposing player . we have his assistant, getting caught up in a touchline tussle and being sent to the stands. Then we have our acadamy manager slapping one of his own players and ( quite rightly) quitting his post. Is it any wonder the media are not excactly our No 1 buddies? couple that with one of the most hated businessmen and owner of NUFC, they are just waiting to slaughter us for anything negative we can give them ? compared to a time , (not so long ago) when we were everyones 2nd team and labelled the ‘ entertainers’ it has just gradually gone down hill to a point where people cant wait for the next catastrophe to hit our club

    You might start to question whether the seemingly general air of mistrust that Ashley has enveloped the club in, along with the continuing remorseless financial constraints coinciding now with increasing expectations, isn’t manifesting itself in this quite self destructive behavior. Starting to fray at the seams, perhaps.

    In other words, lighten up a little ya rotten cheap tight fisted bastard before we all go nuts.

    I imagine Kemen will be feeling a bit sheepish about the handball now, and quite likely will get a good ribbing from his team mates for the next few days, but if we had won 2-1 I doubt any of them would be too bothered about how they got there.

    It isn’t nice to see any player, even more so a bairn, wheel away and celebrate like that after blatantly cheating. But it is the pressure for success and winning that is put into kids that is to blame, particularly in Britain, rather than learning and improving how they play the game. Very sad.

    I remember watching a kids match in Walker where the dad of one player was shouting at him asking why he didn’t go down in the box for a pen, when the kid replied he wasn’t fouled the dad then said So? That doesn’t matter. I’d imagine this happens most weeks at junior football (although not quite as blatant as that I’d hope).

    Lil,
    I’m not sure it would work at this level as not all games are televised but surely if they can punish somebody for an offence commited that the ref never seen surely they can start handing out one to three match bans for players that blatantly cheat, it seems that it is becoming acceptable amongst the younger generation.

    Jail,
    Most games at professional level are recorded nowadays, even if just by the club for analysis purposes. It wouldn’t take much for the governing bodies to contribute to the filming in return for a copy.

    I think it has to start at the top though, banning players in retrospect if a video has caught them deliberately cheating, starting with handballs and diving. It is such common practice at the top level, and widely accepted by the managers that it will keep happening unless players, clubs and managers are disciplined for it. Ban the player 3 game standard ban, and then if one club gets 3 banned in a season, fine the club/manager. More than 5 banned, increase the fine and so on. That would hopefully start to get the message across.

    It also needs to come from parents as well though, as my example above demonstrates, parents playing out their lost youth and football opportunities seem to just want their kids to win, whether the right way or not.

    Bobby,
    Like I said, we lost so I’m sure all Kemen will feel a little sheepish, and he may get a talking to. If we had won, there would be no complaints from the staff or players, and probably a number of fans as well! That is the sad truth, if it helps win, then who cares seems to be most clubs attitude these days. It is only when it doesn’t that you occasionally see them disappointed with it.

    Lil,
    I was thinking the same, Ashley young for example, his first offence a two match ban increasing a game with every additional cheat, then a whopping great fine and lengthy ban for his third offence, like the back pass rule it would take a season to work but after that we’d see a lot less cheating.

    Jail,
    Yeah, but I think the clubs themselves need to be disciplined, as if the club knows they will also be punished then they will also be stricter on their players, and potentially set in house disciplinary measures as well as those from the FA/Premier League.

    For repeat club offenders why not leave a sanction of point removals. Eg. A club has had 5 players banned for cheating. 3 of those instances directly led to them scoring/not conceding a goal, so you will have 9 points removed. (Regardless of whether they ended up winning or losing the matches in question). Extreme, but would certainly get the message across.

    Lil,
    Totally agree, players might be less inclined to wink at each other with a pat on the back knowing somebody has seen and a ban is on the way, the Chairman might have a bit to say if he’s forking out 100 000K for a players dishonesty.
