In what was a terrible result for Newcastle and a mediocre performance, Newcastle went down 1-0 to a poor goal to concede from Substitute Dejagah who t a good shot from the left but Tim Krul must be wondering how that shot got past him.
Papiss Cisse in action this afternoon
But that was enough to give Fulham only their 7th win this season, and Newcastle again came back with nothing from Craven Cottage and we were wondering who would score the goals without Loic Remy in the side, and the answer was nobody although Papiss Cisse had two shots brilliantly saved by goalkeeper David Stockdale, one in each half, and David is keeping Dutch International Maarten Stekelenburg out of the side.
One good point in this game was that Adam Armstrong made his first team debut today, coming on as a sub for Luuk d Jong after 86 minutes.
But after the Newcastle manager was banned for seven games, and we sustained injuries to both Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy last week in the France game against Holland, this result will do absolutely nothing to raise the frustrations of fans on Tyneside.
And it will bring up the point about how many points will Alan Pardew’s suspension cost Newcastle in these seven games?
Let us know who you think Newcastle’s best player was today.
We’ll have a report out a little bit later – and of course this is not a good result for Sunderland, who could only draw 0-0 at home to Crystal Palace today, and are now only one point above Fulham, but with three games in hand.
