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.

    Utter dross
    Truly a woeful display, simply look an awful, unbalance team full of very average players

  • 4 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:42 PM

    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.

  • 5 Ciaran // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:42 PM

    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!

  • 6 dufuss // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:44 PM

    just keep lining the ashley coffers

  • 7 Black and White with an army lol // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:45 PM

    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 :)

  • 8 guvnor // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:46 PM

    Is carver a moron like his boss? What’s up with these retarded subs 3-0 down and old Shola comes on 90 minutes. Coloccini Anita Dummett De Jong Benny pure shite.

  • 9 toonking // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:46 PM

    TADS

    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.

  • 10 armchair fan // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:47 PM

    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.

  • 11 toon kk // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:47 PM

    Why people keep putting their money in MA pocket is beyond me, all they are doing is feeding a problem. Mash gets the cash we get? Well you saw it tonight.

  • 12 guvnor // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:50 PM

    Rotonda don’t waste your time pal most of the thick shites on here rate all the crap like Coloccini the guy’s finished Anita is the worst midfielder at the club dummet joke along with the goalkeeper in fact only Sissoko and tiote are any good.

  • 13 NUFC FOR SALE // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:50 PM

    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

  • 16 darrenfletcher88 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:52 PM

    People saying are once great club are great club…. We have never been great 25 years of hurt so far and another 25 years to come!!! Yes we sing and shout but are football team is awful no money, no ambition, no hope!!

  • 17 naptoon // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:53 PM

    hope the last 3 games have been a wake up call to those slagging marv benny and santon screaming out for the hard working types to play … Utter crap poor owner, poor manager and back room staff, poor squad, poor team morale but mostly poor fans how much more can we take … The sheep like darnsarf billson et al need to wake up dreading next season already :-(

  • 18 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:53 PM

    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!

  • 19 Black and White with an army lol // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:54 PM

    mate it should be – lots of money. no spending, no ambition, no hope.

  • 20 yorkymag // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:54 PM

    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

  • 21 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:54 PM

    Thump

    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.

  • 22 guvnor // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:54 PM

    @15 what are you on? Anita can’t pass tackle or head the ball but he drives a Bentley. Pardew has to go along with his dumb coach.

  • 23 Online Guy // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:56 PM

    HBA our only good offensive player. With Santon and Debuchy this would have been very even gave (in scoreline too).

  • 27 toonking // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:57 PM

    naptoon

    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.

  • 28 JP...from The Rock // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:57 PM

    repost;

    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!

  • 29 calvinho // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:57 PM

    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!

    Money wise we don’t unfortunately pal compared to are rivals, 25 mill is a squad player these days, I think my heart would stop if we signed a player for 20 mill,we simply can’t and won’t compete unless u have a sugar daddy nowadays! Sad times

  • 31 Rotonda heights // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:58 PM

    manx

    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!

  • 32 welshgeordie9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:58 PM

    Who’s the idiot who said sissoko should be sold or sacked

  • 33 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:58 PM

    rotunda so your praising martinez for doin worse than wat pardew did in the 5th season!!

    please explain??

  • 34 TikiTakaAcca // Mar 25, 2014 at 9:59 PM

    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.

  • 35 Mister Tuff // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:00 PM

    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.

  • 36 stan anderson // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:00 PM

    Did,nt expect to get anything tonight mind,but 0-3 is a bit of a shocker.

    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.

  • 41 guvnor // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:02 PM

    The dumb coach couldn’t suss the left had nothing happening as dummet is slower than Coloccini and Williamson and he’s only 21. Benny runs around like a tit in a trance and Marveuax he should be up for claiming money through false pretences.

    No, it wasn’t a joke.
    We wouldn’t be 8th if we were this so called useless team.
    There are things that need addressing, but we don’t know if that will happen.

    We’re not a bad team, fans just expect way too much.

  • 45 Marty-Toon // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:04 PM

    and the current non-season. 3 out o 4 of his seasons have been average to dismal.

    You can’t dine out on one season forever but you’re trying your best.

    I don’t expect us to beat city etc but fulham, sunderland, wba etc???

  • 48 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:06 PM

    rotunda so we’re obviously better than chelsea, man u, spurs
    because we beat them
    villa are better than chelsea because they beat them
    stoke are better than arsenal because they beat them
    i could go on n on n on……….

    this is football ffs anyone can win!

    our Manager needs replaced first before we address the team imo.

  • 51 BuckLuck // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:07 PM

    Martinez is a lot better than Pardew as his mentality and philosophy is both modern and attacking.
    Pardew has a 20 year old philosophy.

    March 25, 2014
    of all the players and staff we should only keep the following:

    - williamson (as backup never disappoints)
    - santon (is a lot better than most of our defenders)
    - haidara (did look good in the few games he played)
    - anita (can be a decent backup player)
    - ben arfa (only one who can create something)
    - cissé (if he comes good, he’ll score again)
    - gouffran (not a good game but still a decent player)

    all the others should be sold or fired

    So sissoko should be sold or fired yeah because he’s been crap this season hasn’t he

    Not

  • 53 calvinho // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:07 PM

    We will lose 8 players in the summer and bring in 5 and we’ll be told “the squad is stronger than what is was last season”

    We’ll then lose Debuchy in Jan 2015 and not replace him and end up playing Tavenier at right back and get slaughtered again.

    If we had the same we would improve
    But next season no remy ,no debucey and probably no krul

    I usually moan about him, but Cisse was man motm, thought he played well, worked hard, looked confident, timed his runs well for once.

    Him and De Jong showed glimpses of forming a partnership, De Jong seems to lack conviction and needs more time on the ball which he will never get in front of goal.

    Keep them two up front and start Ben Arfa right, moving Sissoko into the middle with Tiote for the next game.

    oh and no more Shola cameo appearances, give Armstrong a chance or even Gilliead.

    geordie i agree
    de jong comes across as a signing that really needs a pre-season
    he’s played well for me like but i feel his confidence is dropping and fast unfortunately
    we ain’t had a striker like that for a long time that can have the touch n hold up play as well as that but for 8 mill it ain’t worth it

  • 75 NUFC FOR SALE // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    We weren’t that bad today.

    We passed the ball well, had lots of possession.

    We just haven’t got that killer ball anymore with Cabaye gone.

    What lost us the game today was simple, Collo is a massive weak link in the team now.

    Yes he can pass the ball out of defence but he is far too slow for this league and gets caught out time and time again.

    We are desperate for a top young commanding centre half for Yanga to play alongside in the middle.

    For the record Anita is a great little footballer and to talk about being him being small is just ridiculous…..Silva not to mention Messi

    De Jong good footballer but he is never going to be quick enough for this league.

    Goufran had a shocker and I think he looks very very tired.

    Head and shoulders Tiote is now our best player.

    Thought Cisse looked sharp today and just wish we had players who could play him in.

  • 76 guvnor // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    Marveaux is better when he runs at player. He needs to be more direct. He is very effective when he runs with the ball. Ben Arfa must stay. Cisse deserves another season with us.

    Toon fans are total muppets for paying 30 quid straight into Big Mikes big pocket. They are thick for turning up week after week. I watched for 50 years but I never felt the club was taking the p..s. Idiots. And now big Mike is selling the ground behind the Gallowgate end so the next owner cannot extend the ground. And a few more tens of millions for big Mike. We never win anything because we are so stupid. Go play bingo you plonkers and get rid of the cancer.

    The owner is selling the ground behind the Gallowgate end and you numpties worry about formations and such like. Plonkers.

    Simply can not play anita in a midfield 2, only works as a 3 he’s just too small and lightweight otherwise

    Shame to say it but dummet is not a top ten team left back. Maybe scrape in to a poorer premier team or championship

    Cisss offside so often partly due to our supply being too slow

    MYM disgraceful attitude, wouldve hauled him off first half if i was boss

    WTF carver playing at bringing shola on in injury time??? If thats not a back hander to a lad he’s known as a schoolboy i dont know wat is

    De Jong offers nothing, although little alternative

  • 82 geordie157 // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:29 PM

    for 5mill I’d take a chance on De Jong. But for 5mill we could have had Shane Long instead!!

    My concern is what strikers can we attract, realistically. Lukaku very unlikely. Ba is possible, get him and a pacey striker and I’d be fairly happy. Not sure who though

    NFS…thanks for the review mate!

    …my app just painted a picture of us being overrun.

  • 84 yorkymag // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:29 PM

    For sale
    Anita is s..t tell me one game he has dominated and how many goals has he got ,even worse how many assists
    It’s nothing to do with size he is just not good enough for this league maybe in holland but not here
    I have to say that mr Carr is desperate for a winner he has bought some rubbish of late

  • 85 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:29 PM

    bpc yeah they are but wat happened to that team that brought him that success again?

    and has he brought a team that was relegated a 2 years earlier to 5th and then a qf of europe?

    is that not success also?

  • 86 geordie157 // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:32 PM

    Would like to see Narsingh and Ince come in the summer, with Marv and Obertan leaving. Pace, skill and goals from wingers!! I know wingers do score goals
    note I’m classing Arfa as a no.10 and gouffy as a striker here ;-)

  • 87 welshgeordie9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:33 PM

    Stop arguing lads, you don’t ever see me arguing on this blog, I’m a quiet person

  • 88 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:33 PM

    i see the absolute arsehole is on again!

  • 89 fray bentos // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:36 PM

    Ah the kings of contradiction continue to swamp this blog

    Love it how Martinez is the best manager going yet losing to his side is somewhat disgraceful

    Funny that

    Course he’s better than Pardew, anybody can see that but was Ashley ever gonna employ him, ofcourse not, get over it

  • 90 welshgeordie9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:36 PM

    Hi everybody I am new on this blog so be nice to me as it’s my first time on here tonight

  • 91 manxpie // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:36 PM

    where did narsingh end up remember buying him on fifa when we were 1st linked to him and he was mint lol?

  • 92 welshgeordie9 // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:37 PM

    Hello manxpie nice to meet you

  • 93 Average_Contents // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:53 PM

    Yanga = shit at right back and came storming into that clearance which allowed barkley the ball, everytime he got it it was like a hot potato! Centre back he is!

    Colo = shit! Was too close to lukaku all game and was getting pulled all over the shop and hasn’t got the pace to recover. Usually good positional wise too! 2nd goal was deffo at fault although what the fcuk dummett was doing is anyone’s guess the little tit

    Dummett = shit as said above plus shit set pieces and Crosses

    Goofy = shit tonight, no helping dummett out even after numerous warnings, crap passing too! Like him alot too but tonight was dreadful

    The rest did ok I thought

    No attacking impetus apart from sissoko and when benny came on and as somebody said Everton weren’t great but showed class with their finishing.

    HBA has to start at saints imo

    Are you watching fatty we need players! Tight cnut!

  • 94 anthc // Mar 25, 2014 at 10:57 PM

    Gouffrans touch and decision making let him down today although worked hard just wouldn’t happen for him. Anita struggled for me physically. Dummet got torn a new one off delefaf or whatever his name is. Sissoko was our biggest threat with his pace but sometimes lacked the final ball quality although some good through balls to cisse who ran his socks off by the way. I just think we’re lacking that bit quality in midfield someone who can take a man on and make a decent pass and a striker as de jong wont cut it. 3-0 certainly flattered them.

  • 95 benjohnsen // Mar 25, 2014 at 11:57 PM

    Newcastle need a reshape this summer that’s for sure. We lack a Cabaye, that’s for sure.
