Newcastle Win 3-0 In Nervous Performance – Cardiff Relegated


Newcastle won this game 3-0 against a poor looking Cardiff City side who are now relegated to the Championship after one season in the Premier League, and while Newcastle played well in the first half, and Sissoko put over a great cross for Shola to head home after 18 minutes for his second successive goal in home games, it was a very nervous second half for Newcastle,  before late goals from Loic Remy (who else?) and Steven Taylor – who scored his 14th goal for the club, in what could turn out to be his final appearance at St. James’ Park.

And there was a walk-out after 69 minutes, but not many fans took the advice of the fan groups – and most stayed on – but it was still a frustrating afternoon, with Newcastle playing very nervously in that second period, and before Remy scored the second after 87 minutes,  Cardiff were in with a chance to even win the game but missed their chances.

But we suppose that is what happens when Newcastle have not won a game in the last six., and they were certainly nervous until the Remy goal.

But before the second goal Cardiff had chances that they could not take, and Newcastle had to be thankful to Tim Krul for one great save,  and Coloccini somehow kicked off the line seconds later – and Cardiff had three good chances in a minute after 76 minutes of the game, as the visitors were in Newcastle’s half for most of the second half. 🙁

And after 79 minutes Vurnon Anita was replaced by Steven Taylor, as Newcastle were defending to try to get the win.

Not what you expect when you are playing the bottom of the league side at home.

Stoke hammered Fulham 4-1 at home so remain 2 points behind Newcastle, and if Crystal Palace don’t beat Liverpool at home on Monday night we are at least 10th in the league.

Fulham are relegated because Sunderland deservedly won 1-0 at Old Trafford to get 10 points form their last four games and they should have had four wins being unlucky not to get the win at the Etihad stadium in the first of those four games.

My pal Peter, who is a Sunderland fan – will be very happy (indeed).

As expected, there were chants from the crowd wanting Pardew out, and banners wanting both Ashley and Pardew out – but after this 3 points with the probability we can still finish in 10th place – it could well e that no changes will be made by owner Mike Ashley.

We will have to see what happens after our final game next Sunday at Liverpool.

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

    repost:
    I am going to hold out hope for a few more months as surely Mashley can see that things need to change.

    I almost wish the message from the fans to Mashley was what he needed to do as in new manager, new players rather than sell up cos that isnt gonna happen and will get us nowhere

    i think myself it is going to be that pardew will be with us at the start of the season.

    i ask fans everywhere to do this club a favour. rather than screaming at this fat greedy b@stard and asking or pardew to get sacked lets all just get behind the team and return the stadium to it’s old atmosphere because we will surely be getting more players this summer and they all come because they consider fans loyal.

    the number of fans remaining today shows it’s going to be just too hard to get him out and as for good managers we will get one after 10 games next season.

    No doubt P45due will claim this as a “turning point” for NUFC.

    I just can’t wait for the season to end to put me out of misery until August.

    I was reading the late sir bobby robson biography and the season we finished 5th, when the players went on the lap of honor 35 thousand left the ground before hand only 15 thousand stayed, harsh/well deserved matter of opinion, but please forgive me (i understand people bring their kids who want to watch the toon, so not to be a total prick), the fans who clapped and cheered the players are nothing more then pathetic lemmings and im ashamed of my fellow toon supporter

    How long can we live in “hope” for mate??

    Clearly this match was going to decide his future, but unfortunately he got rather too lucky with the likes of Krul and Coloccini saving his @ss.

    Another 6 years is what the fans should expect as minumum as due to fans keep on attending and cheering on the team for the awful football we play, the more he will come out with stupid comments of how he is the “right man” for the job.

    Keep on paying into the regime and not protesting, I do not understand what else you can complain and argue about, cause the fans are the only people responsible for this mess to go on for ages now. Since 2008, thats over 6 years now.

    I wish I had as much hope in me as you did mate, but all the hope has been sucked out by the cancer and growing tumour in the club.

    It’s not fair to insult fans who stayed rather than walking out. They wanted to watch their team play and get behind the players on the pitch. Protest at half time, maybe everyone then their backs but I wouldn’t have walked out either.

    Fair play to those who did for at least following through, but I don’t happen to agree with them.

    But when are these protesting fans going to grasp that they don’t represent the majority of fans?

    Even 2 bickering groups who wanted to walk out at different times apparently?! Even the protestors couldn’t agree on something as simple as the minute to walk out!

    Don’t agree with all the sick abuse Pardew is getting, only human the poor sod and the players and the board have not helped him at all. Overall done a decent job, but the team he had a one point promised so much more.

    I do agree with him getting moved on though, the club is leaderless right now lacking purpose and direction and needs reconstructing all the way through with principles of a way to play football.

    Nice to see solskjar relegated at st james, never forget him bringing that toon player who was through on goal (was it robert?) way back when.

    Always thought him as a dirty cheat willing to disgrace himself for his master.

    Ever since he is the propaganda tool for the cockney regime.

    He probably gets private transactions by the club or should I say “SportsDirect”.

    Honourable in whose opinion? Not mine. I give them credit for at least following through with it, unlike the cowards who no doubt said they would walk out and then refused…but I think the honourable thing is to get behind the team.

    was watching football focus earlier and it showed crystal palaces club secretary who was just like any other secretary i.e middle aged woman but guess wat at this club he’s now director of football!!

    if that doesn’t show to anyone that a new manager isn’t in any way shape or form the answer to this clubs promblems then you probably deserve to be saying the same things over and over for seasons to come!

    I’m not referring to the people who walked out. I’m referring to those of them who will be on here insulting people who didn’t. Those who are on this blog regularly insulting people who don’t want to react the way they do. They are a minority. That was just proven.

    Well this proves my point, the majority are behind Pardew and blame the players for the second half of the season.

    NUFCfans.co.uk ?@nufcfans 14 mins
    Every time Pardew came out of the dugout, he was booed – and when he sat down he was cheered. #NUFC

    @nufcfans thats f****g sickening, its the players faults they haven’t been performing. He isn’t on the playing field is he!!

    TDS,

    It was about sending a message to Pardew/Ashley..
    Its not about which method of protest suits an individual..

    Theres no point putting Ashley Out or Pardew Out on your bedroom wall saying thats my preferred method of protest..

    I lost hope in Ashley…then in Pardew…Then in coaches…Then in Players…and Finally in Fans…

    Turkish 101 – TDS is entitled to his opinion just the same as you and I do. That he doesnt agree with me is absolutely fine, we have disagreed on several occasions, over the years.

    Abusing him for his view is wrong and not acceptable.

    I don’t claim to. All sorts of different fans. I don’t agree with those who walked out but it’s their right to if they want. I’d rather see more unity with the fans and maybe all turning their backs once the players have left the pitch at half time.

    I am not Pardew fan but tbf, M.Ashley has hung Pards out to dry. He sells the clubs best players and expects Pardew to do a job with a paper thin squad. Selling Cabaye was the biggest mistake NUFC have done since the B.Robson sacking. Collo was our best player today, had it not een for him, Cardiff would have equalized and probably would have sensed blood and went for the jugular. Big thanx to Collo. Unfortunately, he probably will not be here next season. There will be a few others on their bike also. Debuchy, Remy, Hba just t o name a few. BIG rebuilding to do.

    We’re still in 9th mate and we won 3-0 today so there are 11 clubs in worse positions! I want Pardew to be replaced but things are just not as bad as some maintain.
