Two Players Dominate Our Man Of The Match Poll


Cheick Tiote had a terrific game for Newcastle at home to Hull yesterday, and the Ivorian made a huge difference to the side who had looked simply hopeless at Southampton last week, and were clobbered 4-0.

Papiss Cisse scores equalizer yesterday

What was refreshing to watch yesterday was the Newcastle players all gave 100%,  and it was a vastly improved performance from the last two games, but we should have really won the game – and we didn’t – so the pressure remains on manager Alan Pardew

Cheick would have easily won our Man of the Match award until a certain Papiss Cisse came on after 69 minutes,  when Newcastle had just gone 2-0 down and the crowd was starting to get uneasy and starting to demonstrate against Alan Pardew.

But Papiss silenced the protests with a great goal on 73 minutes, after being set up brilliantly by Cheick Tiote, and the crowd got right behind the team, who were trying to come back from what would have been a terrible loss to a rather ordinary looking side.

And Papiss scored the equalizer after a Moussa Sissoko cross from the left wing was headed down well by Yoan Gouffran to Cisse, who rifled the ball in from just four yards out.

And with any luck we could even have snatched the win in the five minutes of added time, as Hull were hanging on.

Papiss is our Man of the Match with 60% of the vote with Tiote on 33% , so these two players were easily the stars of the game yesterday with 93% of the total vote.

It’s great to have both of them back from injury.

    Optimistic –

    It’s sad but it’s a symptom of long term propaganda. We’ve been played like fiddles and it’s got to the point where we can’t even properly demonstrate against a drastically under par manager who is a stooge for Ashley in every department, he’s complicit and he knows it. Every line he spouts is a form of propaganda and he’s getting away with it. The only way I can see it ending is results, but as I said he will get the odd win in and amongst the dross and meltdowns and the sheep won’t see past it to the bigger picture.

    As people have said the only way now is a boycott, and that won’t be happening as the day out is just too precious.

    I went to the toilet at SJP yesterday 😉

    I had a chuckle to myself when I saw posters offering 30% discount on half season tickets.

    Using a picture of LOIC REMY to advertise them!

    I only went yesterday to join in the protests which didn’t appear, and it cost £52 for the pleasure 🙁

    The stewards are pathetic little creeps who hassle the fans who want to sing and cheer, most of them where asleep until Cisse scored.

    I’ll not be hurrying back, between Pardew Ashley and the fans there for a day out they’ve ruined the atmosphere in SJP

    However, Pardew can act the big man now but next up is stoke away on Monday night. That will be a very difficult game and it’s live on tv and we could crumble like we did there last year and he’ll be right back on the edge.

    Depending on what West Brom and Palace do today we could still be rock bottom.

    Not to mention if we crash out of the cup vs Palace as well on Weds. He could be right back in the mire and the longer we’re at the bottom the more serious it will become.

    Hold your horses regarding the various campaigns, if you read my posts you know I’m with you 🙂
    So, this is about THIS game only.

    If we were to judge our team from this game alone, we’d all be thrilled. NOT by the result – before you jump 🙂
    But: we totally dominated a very good team
    We created over 20 chances.
    We conceded through 2 wonder goals which would not have gone in in 9 out of 10.
    We pressured all over the field.
    We played with passion
    We came back from 2 down man!
    Cisse looks rejuvenated

    Yeah it was massively disappointing how the fans reacted. It was all set up to show a united front and it failed. Ashley will never ever be forced out by fan movement, the fan base is weak and fractured.

    Cyprus –

    Id agree with most of what you said. However don’t blind yourself in thinking that Hull were a very good team. They were shocking yesterday, I mean truly awful. They sat deep and couldn’t pass the ball in their midfield at all, kept losing it and playing it long to offside positions. Yet we still conceded two goals! That’s the massive worry.

    There’s always next week. Ok the protest wasn’t overwhelming but it was there and it was on TV. The protest in itself wasn’t anywhere near as disappointing as the dismissal of it afterwards by posters in here who at best probably caught a few jagged moments of the game on some scabby stream. Man up and keep the protest going, not criticise it. Pardew still needs to go, one lousy and I mean lousy home draw that keeps us on the bottom of the table does not expunge this last year’s awfulness.

    I thought their two goals came from mistakes, Colback for the first and Tiote for the second.

    But after both mistakes the defending was shocking, 4 or 5 players couldn’t block or stop the cross for first goal.
    How long was the Hull lad dancing in front of 4 of our players before he shot?
    One of them should have attempted a tackle or try and push him away from centre of goal.

    I thought Hull where poor and could have easily beaten us if they attempted to play instead of sitting back waiting for us.

    It was like watching NUFC A vs NUFC B teams

    You’re picking on the wrong areas regarding mistakes. Anyone can lose the ball anywhere on the pitch, it can happen in an instant. Bug if you watch how Williamson and Janmaat messed up their job of shutting down the incoming threat you will shake your head in disbelief. Williamson ok he is ponderous, but he should have had his head into the cross to Jelavic.- and Janmaat? Standing off the guy as he turned side to side to the himself up? I thought this lad was world class. 🙁

    Jeff from ‘Benwell’… just… Jeff. we know who you are why do you bother trolling Mr manure fan?

    Have you watched Hull in their previous games? I have. They play good football. Hence my remark. Should we be easily beating the likes of Hull, Crystal Palace, even Swansea and Southampton? Hell yes, but we aren’t.

    We are still deep deep in trouble. AP has 9 lives, he slips through in the final minute, always. My feeling is he’s on his last one. If he proves me wrong and wins the next 3 games, I – and you 🙂 will have to grin and bear it.

    Amazing how four years of complete dross has lowered our expectations to such an extent we’re now happy with a draw against Hull City at home.

    Both their goals were top drawer and maybe they didn’t have that many chances…but what would you expect from Hull City playing away…they were always going to sit back and try and do us on the break…their whole season plan is to lose as few games as possible away and get as many points as possible at home…so Steve Bruce is of course going to be delighted with a 2-2 draw away from home…but for some reason we are delighted with a 2-2 draw as well… BUT WE ARE NEWCASTLE UNITED FC FFS…WE SHOULD NOT BE HAPPY WITH A 2-2 DRAW AT HOME AGAINST HULL…how low do our expectations have to fall before we’ll be happy to be relegated but not going down in 20th place.

    It’s fcuking pathetic…it’s our results against teams like Hull at home that will determine if we go up or down. We’ve now drawn against Crystal and Hull at home…we have to win these games otherwise we’re fcuked.

    Cyprus – they play good football for their level and skill set. They are organised to maximise the depth of their ability. Decent managers look at the depth and make sure that have a cohesion first and foremost. Organisation in defence can mean a league one outfit keeping out a PL side for a very long time. Pardew has had some good players in his time, but he shuffles them about in a team like cards, almost aimlessly hoping that one of these days something will click for him.

    I would love is to go two upfront to give us more attacking potency. A 4-3-1-2 formation. Like this:

    Krul
    Janmaat Williamson Colocinni Haidara
    Sissiko Tiote Colback
    Cabella
    Cisse Perez/Revierre

    A really balanced team I think!

    Pardew said in his BBC interview after the match that it wasn’t right that Rivière was carrying the number nine shirt, well who was it supposed to be? The club bought him and didn’t buy another! De Jong isn’t a number nine and they knew Cisse wasn’t ready for the start of the season. Unless its Perez! It proves you get what you pay for most of the time, we’ve spent what came in and failed to add to the squad where it was needed. Relegation here we go, battling for a draw with Hull City at home should not be happening. When injuries hit this crap squad Newcastle will be easy pickings for most premiership teams. Forget the football now, your match day is about meeting your mates, having a few pints and having Sports Direct implanted further into your brains, should you complain nobody really cares anymore.
