Newcastle Defender’s Late Error Sends Holland To Defeat

Unfortunately in tonight International in Prague, Newcastle’s right back Daryl Janmaat made a terrible error in added time in the game between Holland and the Czech Republic in their Group A qualifier for Euro 2016.

Vaclav Pilar celebrates after scoring unlikely winner in added time

With the score at 1-1 against the Czech Republic,  Janmaat tried to put a header back to goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, but it was misdirected and hit the post and substitute Pilar was there to tap the ball home to give the Czech Republic an unlikely 2-1 win.

It was a shock defeat for Holland in Prague, after Stefan de Vrij of Lazio had equalised for the visiting side, when he headed home 10 minutes into the second half.

Borek Dockal had put the home side ahead with a terrific goal, and new coach Pavel Vrba was able to start his reign with a good win over the World Cup bronze medal winners.

However, Holland did not play particularly well tonight and nowhere near their performance in Brazil last summer, and new coach Gus Hiddink called it naive defending by the Dutch defense, and we suppose that was mainly directed towards the Newcastle  defender.

Tim Krul was an unused substitute tonight as Jasper Cillessen was again preferred in goal for Holland.

In the two other Group A games tonight Kazakhstan drew 0–0 with Latvia, and in another upset, Iceland beat Turkey 3-0 in Reykjavík.

Turkey were reduced to 10 men in the 59th minute, when Ömer collected his second yellow card, and Iceland were leading 1-0 at the time.

    Pardew is human, he has feelings like the rest of us. He has family and he has friends and close professional associates.
    They will all be aware of what is coming his way, they will all want to offer him advice even though every single one of them know the screw is turning on his time here in Newcastle.
    It is our duty not to give him a reason to ‘tough it out’
    This weekend the 2,300 travelling Toon Army have had great responsibility thrust upon them. Their voices at St Marys represent the start of a dismissal process which if conducted loudly enough may even be completed by 5pm this Saturday.
    Keep turning the screw lads.
    We all know this is getting back to him and his cronies.

    I think Pards is in trouble. Losing DeJong may mean he’s already gone, with poor results almost inevitable. It just hasn’t happened yet. But with five new players to integrate and without Tiote and Santon, who certainly would be in the starting 11, he’s been given another tall, tall order.

    I quite like Pardew, but he needs a better team of coaches and a better squad to lift a club like Newcastle, who haven’t won a thing in 45 years. I strongly suspect the weight of expectation must be really hard for the players to deal with whether they are fully conscious of it or not. We need all that and probably a better manager too. Hardly likely anytime soon. Maybe we’ll get a new manager, to add to a now very long list of failed ones.

    Jim Smith claimed Newcastle were unmanageable, probably still are. Only Robson and Keegan have made a better fist of it than Pardew in my time all things considered, albeit Hughton should have been given longer though, and they didn’t actually win anything either.

    When you have a frustrating night and no
    one playing the ball to you or playing the ball
    to that right winger .
    probably the manager told Janmaat not to go forward
    he barely touched the ball in the second half let alone the whole game , so expect from him to do a mistake at the end

    Oz, I think he’s very hardworking and commited to his job, which in many ways is a thankless task that he may not be up to. I also think he tries to be honest as best he can, despite what others say, but again, its a problem for him because hes trying to balance managing a football club, motivating and coaching a side under a lot of pressure and working under some real tight parametres.

    I think its probably in his best interests to get the sack, but I’m not convinced its in the clubs, unless the owner has a serious rethink about how he supports a new appointment.

    tell me pardew did not have a problem with HBA in 2011

    ONLINE GUY // Dec 21, 2011 at 7:10 PM

    Leaving Hatem out again is a disgrace ..the guy looked distraught when Pardew stuck Sammy on against Swansea..Ignoring Hatem…the one player that could have opened Swansea up..

    HBA is a world class player ..And how is he ever going to get up to speed if he’s not playing games ..He’s ready now ..

    I seen Hatem asking Pardew when he was going to put him on near the end of a recent match..Pardew said
    5 mins ..then made him wait 15 !..

    I think that Pardew is doing what G Taylor did to
    Peter Beardsley, Taylor keeping a world class player out of the England side for two years !..Turnip !

    Disregarding tactics for a min ..putting Sammy on ahead of HBA is stupidity..there is never an end product with Sammy .

    .I know a few non league players who could do just what Sammy does ..Its too early for him ..Ineffective ..with Hatem he will open the opposistion up at least 7 times in a game ..and I do mean open them up need that creativity .

    .Just think of Peter Beardsley. HBA is the closest thing we have to Beardsley’s world class skills.

    Pardew has an issue with Hatem He’s got the bag on with him for some unexplained reason ..

    Pardew is aloof to start with …If Hatem dont play tonight or get on as an early sub I can see trouble in the dugout tonight.

    mattyNUFC // Dec 21, 2011 at 7:26 PM

    like i said on the last post, subtly, because obviously getting up in arms over it means i’ll be cemented next to the neggers, but

    i agree with playing a 442

    i agree with both ba’s and best’s inclusions

    I strongly disagree with leaving HBA on the bench….again. If he can’t play the “number 10 role” effectively, then put him on the wing, the place he’s played his entire life. and i don’t want to hear one more peep about him not tracking back because as far as I’ve seen, Obertan does more standing around than HBA, and I think Obertan is still effective at getting back. HBA never dismissed his defensive duties, not once. It’s just a moot (and wrong) analysis of how we historically think of what we consider “luxury” players. HBA does track back and he does work hard for the team. Just a joke we expect him to be at his best against three of the top ten teams in the world and bench him when he could quite possibly prove most effective against your “run of the mill” prem teams. still distraught. Looking forward to seeing Vuckic but I think a CM role is too deep for him. anyway, HTL

    6 last games:
    2 points out of 18
    7 goals scored
    15 goals against.
    Lost S.T,
    Perch as Replacement for 4 games out of those 6 (If I am not mistaken).
    Cabaye out for this one.
    Colo is injured a bit.
    Tiote was out for 4 out of those 6
    HBA didn’t play in the last 2 games before today.

    Lose to Man C – deserved
    Deaw against Man U – Lucky
    Lose to Chelsea – Horrible game on our part, bad bad defending.
    Lose to Norwich – Horrible game, maybe the worse this season together with today’s WBA.
    Draw against Swansea – Not good enough, no attack, still controlled the game and should’ve won.
    Lose to WBA – Bad defending, not good tactics, deserved.

    I think talking about the mgr,whether stayed or should be sacked,is waste of time.if he get sacked now,things get worse,charn will most probably will hire Beardesly,till end of season, who has no experience,leads us to struggle ,destorted,loss of shape and fight to avoid relegation.where us the likes of hull,stoke,villa,Sunderland,Swansea jumping over us.
    I don’t know about you guys,but I haven’t seen any benefit getting rid of the mgr now.not a good time at all…we played great with character against city,we were unlucky against villa and palace as we should have won both easily.we had bad day against palace last time, lower teams tend to make you sweat,labor and surprise you like that sometimes. even top 4 teams can be sweated & struggle like that
    like I said earlier,we have a good squad, capable of beating any don’t be surprised if we smashed saints 3 nil at st.marry’s on Saturday..
    OH!by the way,I’ll never ever support the sackpardew website.its nonsense & illusion!!

    Whilst I don’t agree with the ‘Pardew Out’ over reactions I challenge anyone on here to give me an example of a time where we have played exciting fast paced skillfull and/or attracive football this season. So far it has all been about ‘spirit’ but when that spirit is broken what do we have? Saylor wasn’t the captain but an inspiration and the embodiment of geordie spirit that the team were inspired by. He has gone and now we have to play football, and you know what? We can’t with 4-4-2, long ball, Ameobi impact sub!!!!!!!

    788Obafan // Dec 21, 2011 at 10:01 PM

    Krul: nothing to blame, but he has to practise his kicking!
    Simmo: average; not one good cross
    Colo: his worst game for a while, but everyone has got a few bad games in a season
    Perch: gets lots of stick, but I thought he did okay today
    Santon: if not injured then he should have stayed on the field (I fear he lost his spot in the team)

    Guti: working hard, but that’s it, only 1 good cross in the last couple of minutes
    Tiote: not 100%? Then he should not play, otherwise he was very bad today
    Vuckic: he did very well
    Obertan: same as always; could bring lots of danger, but doesn’t bring it at all

    Best: waste of space (and he still is 60mins on the pitch)
    Ba: WORLD CLASS striker

    Raylor: kicking balls upfront, Pardew must be delighted with that
    Ben Arfa: creative skills; but I think he is injured again (a neck injury because he had to search for the ball in the air) Should always start in these type of games
    Ameobi: not a real impact today, but first he had to play at the right hand side; come on

    Pardew: had no clue at all and he is a liar, cause he promised to play passing game, but all you see him do is crying at the back to kick the ball upfront

    i carnt just blame obertan tonight, as he was one of many who had a poor game,

    but you have to sit and wonder what some of our good players have to do to get a game,

    best, is not a good footballer, he is a willing one and does try, but him or ben ? it would be HBA for me,

    we have a great center forward, and i REALLY carnt understand why he plays with 2 wingers that carnt cross a ball, OBERTAN, is way out of his depth in this league never mind newcastle, honetly id play one of vuckic, sam ameobi, or that mehdi kid,, all 3 ov them have something about there game, OBERTAN just has speed and that is it, bellamy is a great example of a player who has speed and not the greates footballer, but he really used his asset to good affect,,

    on a plus point, santon and vuckic looked great,,

    sour point, AP ,need to have a good look at his selections, his tactics where poor tonight, we played to high up the pitch and got hit on the counter time after time, shane long looked a steel for 6 mil

    Sorry mate but with this

    “trying to balance managing a football club, motivating and coaching a side under a lot of pressure and working under some real tight parametres’

    you just describe the football managing as a whole. The job of EVERY manager is to MOTIVATE and COACHING his team… for every single manager… no exceptions. And which manager exactly from the team from our range is not under lot of pressure? NONE! Every single manager will be kicked in the @ss when the streak is a negative one. Obviously except pardew because our recent performances is like a doomed team… just look the stats.

    when we were wining games , we were very lucky at times, we won games we shouldnt have, much in the way west brom did last night,

    our demise is down to playing to many poor players, and players out of form,
    imo we have players that really are good enough for the prem or ones who would get into team that float between the championship and prem

    krul = is a class keeper and will get better , needs to work on his kicking, kicks to many out

    simpson = he is a player that cost 500k and looks like one to,

    colo = top prem player, took some time to adapt but with saylor they both form one of the best partnerships in the prem, we need to find a good replacement for saylor,

    saylor =, could be an england defender, heart of a lion, not as rash as he was,

    perch= not good enough for this league, way out of his depth,

    raylor = not the quickest, but is steady enough to help out, for me he should be our RB, or playing RW, at least he can cross a ball

    obertan, = out of his depth in the prem league, to many of our supporters are to simpethetic towards him, but sorry, this guy is an athlete not a footballer, and i believe we have ppl in the stands that could do a much better job than him, i just found this page , read it and tell me he deserves a place in the squad let alone the first team

    cabaye = class, pure class, buy of the season, has it all in my book, energy,vision,and the quality to pull it off,

    tiote, = lost his way in the last 2 games, but still for me one of the best players we have, normally an outstanding player week in week out for us,

    jonas = has amazing work rate, and is always willing to try and take on players, but not much end product,

    best = not good enough, misses way to many chances,

    ba, = pretty close to cabaye for buy of the season, and for me being let down big style by our 2 wingers, in ba we have a player as good as shearer and sir les in the air, quick and stong, with a great shot, if he had 2 good wingers pinging in crosses, he would be leading the goal scoring in the prem, this im sure of


    shola = not good enough, not even as a squad player, having him around is styfiling the progress of the younger ones,

    HBA = should be in the first team week in week out, loves the ball at his feet, van spot passes and make them to

    marvauxe, = should when fit start in place of jonas, just the few time he played he looked really good

    sam ameobi = great young prospect, has abilty and a good work ethic,

    vuckic,= looks to have it all in his game and will only improve, very classy when on the ball

    ferguson = good enough to be our left back now from the games i seen last year, could also play LW

    santon = like the look of him, but last night he left gaps behind him to many times, has to learn when to get forward and when to stay back

    from the above WBA game

    “It’s an upsetting game for us to lose because we are at home.” “The first half I didn’t think we played anywhere near to our ability.”

    “Second half we did. We came back from a goal down. We was bossing proceedings, looking like we were going to get back into it, and when we got the second goal it set us up for a grand stand finish.”

    “But then to get done on the counter attack because of us looking for the win, maybe we were a little bit too desperate tonight.”

    “We would have had 30 points if we won tonight and maybe we wanted it too much, and didn’t play as controlled as we usually do.”

    “We were creating chance after chance before we scored and then when we did we thought there we go, we can win it, but the front two for West Brom Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie were a threat all night.

    “They got down the side and had a bit of fortune for the goal I thought.”

    my fave line , we wanted it to much

    13ash1001 // Dec 22, 2011 at 12:29 PM

    Its just an opinion like all of the comments on here, but, one person that has to get a grip is ALAN PARDEW himself. I was prepared to go along with him earlier, I know the results of late have been bad and he has to accept a lot of the responsibility for it.
    He is not strong enough to stand-up to the owner, we could all have told him were the weakness’s where if he is too blind to see them himself. All we got from him was the squad is OK, we are now getting it again, “we have sufficient to cover our needs up front when BA goes off to African Cup”. like hell we have. The same applies to the defence including left back. His excuse that Santon had a knee injury last night sounds very madeup -will see how that develops.
    Neither of the Ameobi’s are up to scratch, Shola is past his sell by date if he ever had one, (by the way instead of bursting a gut to get on last night it took him just over 3 mins to get himself kitted out to go on), Sammy is far to raw for the PL yet.
    Vukic,his shooting excluded did nothing to help in midfield therefore Tiote was over run, it was good to see HBA get on, but it should of been much earlier and when he is on, one rule that should apply to him is – do not give him the ball on the half way line, he got it last night – lost it -and WBA missed a sitter.
    Sorry AP its time you stepped up to the plate and got it all sorted out, the fans are far from blind, we know where the problems are.

    Well, managing Newcastle is no run of the mill football job, if there even is such a thing, never has been, and certainly isn’t under Ashley, far from it. Ithink that’s clear enough. If Pards gets the sack, ok, he gets his compo and another job and we all move on. No problem.

    Personally, I’d rather Ashley invest that money in a bright young coach to act as assistant manager, to be groomed to take over and who in the meantime would run the training have a big say in the tactics. Carver can assist him.
