Newcastle Lose 2-1 To Oldham – Siem de Jong Scores Great Goal


Two second half goals from new signing Timothee Dieng and Oldham trialist William Gros were enough to give the home side a 2-1 win over Newcastle United tonight, after debutant and captain Siem de Jong had scored a great goal after 14 minutes to put the visitors ahead.

Newcastle United Training Session

Siem de Jong – a screamer from the Dutch International tonight – class!

So Newcastle got off to a rather surprising defeat in their pre-season schedule of games – after putting out a side that was a mixture of both experience and youth – but we couldn’t get the win against the League One club who finished in 15th position last season.

The game had started off well for Newcastle when captain Siem de Jong  put the Magpies ahead after only 14 minutes, with an excellent strike – which hopefully will be a prelude of what is to come from the 25 year-old Dutch International.

Siem took a free kick outside the box, and when the ball came back to him off the wall, he hit the ball beautifully into the top right-hand corner of the net – a beautiful strike from de Jong.

Newcastle dominated the first half action, but then two late goals in the second period saw Oldham get the win, and the defense was at fault for both goals.

Oldham equalized after 69 minutes through Dieng, who headed a Mellor corner past Jak Alnwick (where was the marking?), and then a bad mistake from the young Newcastle goalkeeper, who let in substitute Willy Gros’ shot in the 79th minute, as the ball slid under his body.

Jak should have saved the shot – but that slip meant that Newcastle got off to a surprising defeat in the pre-season.

It’s not the result we wanted to see tonight, but let’s read too much into this result – and we had a rather young side out tonight, with players like Satka, Streete, Bigirimana, Vuckic, Haidara, Sammy Ameobi and Perez all getting some playing time.

Comments always welcome.

Oldham: Rachubka, Mills, Kusunga, Kelly, Dayton, Jones, Forte, Clarke-Harris, J Wilson, B Wilson, Turner.

    I think most people want shot of Pardew now, I don’t think he’ll last long if results start to go very wrong.

    Newcastle may be ready to finalise the deal for Riviere but keep your eyes peeled for more exciting moves.

    It is common knowledge that NUFC like to keep fingers in many pies hoping that one or two offers will be accepted. Riviere was one such deal but another offer on the table has been warmed up again and is close to being accepted.

    Danny Ings of Burnley was the subject of a £5 million bid that was rejected out of hand. NUFC left the offer on the table however and Burnley are now trying to get NUFC to pay closer to £7 million which the toon army are willing to do (with add ons and bonuses).

    Burnley have already signalled their intentions to cash in on Ings by signing Marvin Sordell and Lukas Jutkiewicz . They have Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes already at the club and think the sale of Ings could strenghten other areas of their squad.

    For more transfer updates keep a look out for ITK Beattie25.

    You guys should go to Oldham’s website. Timothee Dieng is actually a decent 6’2″ forward. Should keep an eye on him I think.

    We have had a bid rejected by City for Richards, apparently around 4.8m. Heard that if Utd sign Hummels then we will go after Evans.

    I hope we up our bid for Richards, he is class at centre back, just needs to play.

    I see what you’re saying James about Raylor and Santon but I wouldn’t like to see Raylor against a Sanchez, a Sterling, a Hazard etc…

    His knee will have gone. He wasn’t blessed with pace to begin with and doubt he could do well in that position anymore. I’d trust him in CM if we were controlling the game but not at RB.

    Santon is simply not good enough at RB to make us competitive. I love the kid, think he has so much potential if used properly, but RB isn’t a place where he can play and help us feel like losing Daryl isn’t too much of a loss.

    Take anyone out of the team and you may say ‘it’s not too bad we have (insert name)’.

    This cannot be said at CF or indeed RB IMO.

    So just got back from the game, not the most interesting, died after 60 minutes. We really dived down deep into our academy in the second half and it really showed. Comments on a few players:

    De Jong – cracking goal, tried a few other clever things that didn’t quite come off. Certainly doesn’t have alot of pace and won’t ge quite stuck in as Cabaye, but there was an air on confidence he moved around the pitch which i loved.

    Abeid – for 60 minutes the midfield was his, hardly ever gave the ball away and made some intelligent decisions. Hopefully he doesnt get judged on the how the team were in the last 30 minutes after all the substitutions.

    Colback – typical colback performance, neat and tidy at times, didnt have the quality to produce any killer passes.

    Perez – looked likely and came deep and did some nice things linking up and showed good movement and energy….but really wasn’t ready to face burly league one defenders, nice things were often followed up with him on the floor.

    Alnwick – Made one good save, should have saved second goal.

    Armstrong – ran alot, didn’t have any clear chances

    Rolando Aarons – hit the gym

    Bigiriniama – Pardew thinks hes a right winger now it seems

    Anita – is not a right back, can’t wait for him to get in the middle behind De Jong.

    Danny Ings is about as loyal to Burnley as I am to shopping at Aldi.

    If the right deal comes along Aldi can go eff itself and I’ll go and shop at Morrisons.

    The kid is in the England u21’s. Moving to Newcastle may help him break into the full squad quicker.

    He has played for Burnley for 3 years and was born down south. He swears no fealty to House Brunlea. I should know as I am from this dump.

    You make a valid point beattie, i think Santon should be used as a right mid or right winger which would save ashley from having to go and buy one.. If we could get richards then he could provide cover for Janmaat

    And klicine i can’t find anything about a bid rejected for richards

    yippee!! lets spread more doom and gloom over a silly meaningless friendly when most of the starting XI is absent… the 2 players who mattered Siem and Colback seem to have had a decent at our perennially doomed club… lets get our act together and try and support the club with more cheer

    I would love to see Benteke here in NUFC, he is great player, for me he has everything to be a succes here…Great power,heading,pace…clinical finisher…he would be awesome upfront….and Richards/Van Dijk/Dier one of them and I think we are done…Riviére is done,Janmaat is done…imagine that
    ……………………..Krul………………..
    Janmaat,RICHARDS,Mbiwa,Haidara
    …….Tiote……………..Anita……………
    Sissoko….De Jong……..Cabella
    …………….BENTEKE……………….
    ………………………………………………..
    ………………..Elliot…………………..
    S.Taylor,Williamson,Collocini,Santon
    ………..Abeid…….Colback………………..
    H.Ben Arfa………………Gouffran
    ……….Cisse……….Riviére…………………..

    Cover:
    CB…Satka,Streete,Good
    FB…R.Taylor,Mbabu,Dummet
    MC..Bigirimana,Jonas
    WG…S.Ameobi,Aarons,
    AM…Vu?ki?
    FW…Pérez,Armstrong

    Sell:
    Obertan-never good enough
    Marveaux-as much as I like him, Pardew seems to hate him,it will be better for each sides to move him

    and top would be bringing Greniér, as he would improve us for sure, can be used next to Tiote as deep lying playmaker, or AM…but I think this one never happen

    i think Wickham would be a good signing, we can get him on the cheap and has rejected a new contract. He’s young and kept the scum up last season.

    Toonfan8 we don’t really need Grenier we have the creativity in the attacking line and we can use two defensive midfielders to press the opposition. we just need a CB, ST, and RW

    So where’s the bad news then? We’ve signed Perez, Colback, De Jong, Cabella, and we’re supposedly in for Richards, Riviere, and PEA? Either Ashley has been on the happy baccy, or Wonga’s pissing off and he’s changing the stadium name and the sponsor to SportsDirect.com. For nowt.

    Still think we miss that one player who will grab the game by the scruff of the neck when we go all Brazil and end up getting hammered.

    No matter how much we spend, if we lack that player I predict a few more 4-0, 5-0, etc…

    Those players are priceless.

    James…When we had taylor and MYM at back most things were short from keeper and then through abeid or colback. Didnt really have much choice as armstrong was up front mind. Movement was nothing special, mainly just functional stuff.

    Pizzacato….MYM did all that was asked of him, he looked committed enough, as the senior player when de jong went off he didnt really get the young lads going though.
