Everton Take Their Chances In Style To Win 3-0


nufc emblemeverton fc

Newcastle were beaten 3-0 tonight by Everton, and the only real difference in the sides was the finishing, and Everton scored two great goals, and Newcastle missed some of their chances with Anita somehow missing an open goal after 78 minutes, when Newcastle were pressing hard, and a goal at that point could have changed things in the game.

Ben Arfa had worked some magic on the left by beating three men (or was it four) before putting a low cross across the goal – but somehow Anita hit his shot wide of the post – a really terrible miss.

This was the 9th time in the last 13 league games that Newcastle have failed to score, and we labored a bit before Ben Arfa came on after an hour, and added some much needed creativity to Newcastle’s play.

Newcastle got off to a bright start and we had two or three chances in the first two minutes of the game, as Luuk de Jong, Yoan Gouffran and then Papiss Cisse had shots on goal all blocked.

Everton then went on a lightning breakaway after 22 minutes and it was Barkley who got to the cleared ball first, from a Newcastle corner,  and he raced away and then cut inside from the right and smashed the ball into the back of the net with his left foot, as the Newcastle defenders tried to get back.

It was a great goal from the young 20 year-old England International.

After 52 minutes a good run down the right wing by Gerard Deulofeu ended in him putting in a low cross that Romelu Lukaku swept high into the back of the net, and Everton were 2-0 up, as they were showing the Magpies how to convert chances.

And then with Newcastle pressing hard for the last 20 minutes or so, and Ben Arfa looking very good again, Anita somehow missed that golden opportunity after 78 minutes as Newcastle needed a goal to get back into the game.

And then once again after 88 minutes Newcastle were caught short at the back, and this time it was Osman who rifled the ball home to make it 3-0.

And this was Everton’s first win on the road since December.

It was never a 3-0 game, but if you don’t take your chances and don’t create enough chances – Newcastle will continue to have problems scoring goals this season – well at least until Loic Remy returns.

Ben Arfa surely must now start at Southampton on Saturday, as Newcastle again looked a lot more threatening with the French winger in the side running at the opposition.

As we said – this is the 9th time in the last 13 league games we have failed to score – so we expect that Graham Carr to have at least three striker targets lined up for the summer.

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

    Amazing all the numpties who said Martinez wasn’t good enough for us ! They’ve smashed us twice now even once when we had Cabaye and Remy.

    Martinez has done some very clever loans and buys but on paper our squad is arguably not much worse than theirs and we’re playing at home!

    For me Martinez is everything Pardew isn’t, on and off the pitch and it shows big time.

    Just in case anyone is interested in the Mike Ashley Out Campaign;

    https://www.facebook.com/mikeashleyoutcampaign?ref=br_tf

    Rubbish performance, lack of creativity, Dummett was destroyed all game long, Colo was poor, our midfield was overrun and we generally seemed like we didn’t care.

    Will we demand more from our team? Will we bollocks!

    i’m so so so so so so happy I didn’t renew my ticket, Everton and Scumberland have taken 6 points and 6 goals from us and there squad is average compare to ours.

    I remember the time we came 5th and I said on here we should get rid of Pardew in fact I was the only one on here who stated this and I got nothing but grieve by many fellow bloggers on here.

    isn’t it great how the tides have turned 🙂

    if ashley is really going to be serious enough at wanting to see newcastle try and progress next season then he has got absolutely no excuse to not spend lots in the summer, our team had remy, debuchy and HBA all missing or only a sub and the 3 games were diabolicle with easy chances missed no creativity and subs like shola coming on it’s screaming for lots of attacking and creative players.

    Teams know Dummet is our weakness – look at last game against Palace, most of their attacks were from their right side, and again today Martinez knew we would be vulnerable as Dummet likes to get forward.

    For me, Coloccini was at fault for the third goal as he made no effort to challenge the ball [or a very weak one].

    Guess this just shows how far away we are to being a consistent team challenging Europa/CL. Despite what everyone says, I still think De Jong can be a very good player given the time. Good to see Cisse looking sharp too. Once again we rely on Ben Arfa for creativity – do not sell him in the Summer.

    How the hell Pardew and co can’t see that Collo is finished.

    Hes an absolute cart horse, far too slow for this league now.

    Anyone can see the stats when Yanga and Williamson play together in the centre compared to those when Colo and Williamson play.

    Wake up Pardew let Collo go

    so hows this great squad the best ever doing?

    when we lose a great player and 2 players and 1’s on loan?

    surely this great squad thats the best ever should be able to cope?

    that great squad the best ever surely shouldn’t just crumble?

    maybe the great squad thats the best ever isn’t that great or the best ever!

    I have not been to a game since the idiot manager decided to disgrace a once great club ,but that is only a half of it we are a complete shambles top to bottom
    My seat is empty and it will remain so as long as this bunch of muppets are in charge
    It breaks my heart ,the club is rotten from top to bottom
    And it sums it up when our jan signing de junk is probably at best a championship player

    ask everton fans which style they prefer moyes or martinez.

    martinez has brouht in lukaku, barry, delafeo, promoted barkley and Stones and changed the whole dynamics of the way the team plays now.

    Band B

    So true. once sissoko beat 3 people out on the right wing and not another black and white shirt anywhere near him.

    when anita and cisse miss sitters like they both did in recent games, when cabaye and ba both our most important player of those seasons they got sold are now on the bench of CL teams and when we have only got HBA as a creative midfielder, they player who is inconsistant and can’t even get in the french international squad- Their is no way our team could do any better with martinez as it is simply rubbish.

    nufcursed- add Sissoko to that list and that’s it! What a shambles we’ve become. Though I expected this result, te fact that again we brought on Strolla in injury time beggars belief! WTF was our coaching staff thinking? What a bunch of retards we have coaching our mediocre team. No wonder we’re in the brown stuff every week, every year!

    it’s embarrassing. we are so square.
    1. the big man, little man strike force no longer works!
    2. Anita is not good enough to play in a 4. He’s too small, too weak and just works hard.
    3. Gouffran is a runner and isn’t great on the ball. Why isn’t he trying to use his pace to get in behind? Let’s remember, he was only bought as a squad player.
    4. Dummett is too slow.
    5. MYM is not a right back
    6. DeJong is too slow and adds no value
    7. Williamson is the best of a bad bunch.

    Our season is a write off and has been since Jan. We need to get rid of the dead wood and fast!

    yeah fulham, sunderland and WBA’s squads are so much better than ours!! Fulham only had a rookie 19 year old from league 1 to play against us.

    pardew did his best to get us relegated last season and still it’s everyone else’s fault!

    Some people need to shut up.

    Once again, we lose and all we take is the negatives.
    We lost to an Everton team who scored on 3 counter attacks.
    People should see that we’re not a million miles away from being a top 7 team.
    Just find negatives in people when we lose.
    On another day today, we drew this game, even won.
    Not many teams have more possession against Everton.
    Tiote’s ball retention was fantastic, Anita (who i’m not a fan of had a good game).
    Ben Arfa had a brilliant game, he should be starting, always said that.
    Wasn’t Colo’s fault he slipped for the first goal, the second, Dummett was far too slow, he’s a horrible player btw. People slag off Santon, he’s our best LB, always has been.

    We’re only a few additions from being a top team, that obviously needs to be addressed, but until it is, stop saying we’re awful because we’re not.

    Some utter tool spouted earlier on that we were playing well and he was enjoying the game. What a complete tool. Can I suggest you stop commenting on football and revert to netball or ladies rugby.
    The result was no great shock and probably expected by most discerning fans. Sad part was Everton were not really all that good -probably we were awful. De Jong will not make the grade -needs putting on the paddle steamer back to Germany.
    Last couple of years really have been wasted -no real progress at all – massive clearout required.

    sorry but you’re wrong. Martinez would have us playing for a win from the first minute, not just looking to ”contain”.
    The whole mindset would change to positivity.
