Nightmare Goes On And On – Magpies Lose 2-1


nufc emblemswansea

Wilfried Bony scored a goal in the stoppage time of each half this afternoon, to give Swansea only their second win in 10 games against a weak Newcastle United side , who have now lost five games on the trot, and this must be one of the worst runs for a Newcastle side for a long long time as we have now lost

We play Arsenal and Liverpool away and then Cardiff City at home so we may not get another win this season, and certainly the players lack confidence.

And Newcastle even went ahead in the game after 23 minutes through Shola Ameobi, and it was his first Premier League goal of the season, but then two minutes into stoppage time Wilfried Bony beat Mike Williamson to a corner kick and headed the ball high into the back of the net.

And then in the two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the game, when Newcastle looked as though they could at least break their four game losing streak – Cheick Tiote managed to foul Emnes on his way to goal.

And the referee awarded a penalty, and Bony made no mistake from the spot, and that was our 5th defeat on the trot and heaps even more pressure on Newcastle manager Alan Pardew.

Swansea have now also done the double over Newcastle in each of the last two seasons, even when we caught them today, when they had just one win in nine before this game. 🙁

Stoke drew 1-1 at Cardiff City so are now only 2 points behind us,  and in all likelihood will beat us to 9th place, and Crystal Palace got their 5th win in a row at West Ham by 1-0, and have gained 15 points on Newcastle since we beat them 1-0.

And Palace are now only 3 points behind us – so they could even pip us to 10th place.

If that happens we will not make our target of a top ten finish, and Alan Pardew could be fired.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Huddersfield?

    Stuart,

    If you write to the club, you might get the following email in return.

    Dear sir,

    Thank you for your enquiry. Having studied the club’s finances, we have been unable to find evidence of the “losses” to which you refer.
    Indeed, attendances continue to be excellent.

    yours etc…..

    Five straight defeats, the first time this has happened in the EPL for NUFC.

    Pardew is only part of the problem but by christ he needs to go asap

    Another game we should be winning but thanks to Pardumb a team needing points to survive does the double over us.

    Add to that another record for Pardumb 5 defeats in a row soon to 6

    Not really a surprise was it?

    Mr Pardew has lost the dressing room and our season was effectively over once JFK sold Cabaye.

    Please dont keep calling for Pardew to go. He won’t resign, and Ashley wont sack him.

    At least we wont finish in the top 10 now, so no bonus, in reality rewarding failure.

    In theory we could be overtaken by Palace, a team tipped to go down with the Mackems not so long ago.

    if the transfer window doesn’t go to plan this summer then next season will be a season when i’m going to be much more local myself.

    i said to transfer sage a few days ago that it’s what happens this summer that will show once and for all just how good or bad pardew really has been and if it was really the fat b@stard who has caused this.

    also if we do have a bad summer then i don’t think this blog will be even worth my time

    Into the bottom half hopefully

    Least they won’t get bonuses that way and we don’t deserve to be top 10

    The scary thing is that as bad as it has become Ashley will be a happy lad as we are hitting all our targets. We are still in the top 10, though I think both Stoke and Palace will pass us, so Ashley has no reason to sack Pardew. We spend next to nothing while retaining our EPL place and thats all he wants as thats where the money is and thats where SD gets the exposure he wants

    The result with that starting line up was inevitable, its as though Pardew wants to be sacked so would I with five years pay as compensation, surely Ashman has to make the call now.

    Its simply to easy to blame Ashley for every single thing that happens as he doesn’t train/coach the players, he doesn’t select the side or the formation. Yes the man has no concern for us actually achieving anything but Pardew is far from blameless.

    Ashley pays the players but they play for the manager and this lot don’t want to play for him.

    Basically Ashley and Pardew are cut from the same cloth as neither know what they are doing and both are truly out of their depth

    If i was a cynical type of chap I’d speculate that Mashley will be doing the chicken dance around his office at the thought of us finishing 11/12th and saving him self those bonus payments instead of bonuses for the whole squad it will just be a few grand in tick at a casino of choice to good buddy Pards…..

    Lucky I’m not cynical 😉

    collo needs a special shout he showed from the 1st minute he was fighting
    and as you say tads anita showed the same but tiote got praise from the commentators but for me he was poor all game turning inside all game and a stupid tackle at the end

    all in all much better than recent games but still no attacking threat and thats with 4 players starting plus 2 coming on!

    To be fair,we didn’t deserve to lose today.
    We made a few chances,played ok and harried well at times.
    Ridiculous challenge by Tiote in the box,clumsy as it gets.
    De Jong looked handy before gettin injured and got an assist.
    Anita did well today but changing gosling for Armstrong was always gonna leave us open to the break.
    Stupidity or bravery by AP?

    It needs to be done now. But knowing MA there is 2 things he will do either 1) Leave it to late and we will get relegated with a new manager or 2) wait to Pards is getting relegated next season then sack him.

    JUST DO IT NOW GET IT OVER WITH AND US BACK ON TRACK!

    Pardew will blame the loss on the first half injuries as we couldn’t adapt to the change i.e we had no plan B

    The buck stops with Ashley because it really is that simple, does he employ the tactics or take training? No, but he pays the bloke who does and seems to see nout wrong

    pardew himself could have been wanting these bad results to happen all along.

    ASHLEY WATCH MY TEAM YOU FAT B@STARD THEY ARE NEVER WINNING GAMES SO GET YOU FCUKING HANDS IN YOU POCKET AND SPEND SOME FCUKING MONEY.

    SACK ME AND PAY MY FULL 5 YEAR CONTRACT WAGES.
