Magnificent Ten Man Newcastle Win 3-2 In Extra Time


In a game which Newcastle should have really won 2-1 in normal time – but Crystal Palace equalized in the second minute of stoppage time – to take the game to extra time, it was Paul Dummett who got the winner after Manu Riviere had scored two goals in answer to Gayle’s penalty after 25 minutes.

Make no mistake about it – this was a performance full of courage and guts from this Newcastle team tonight in London.

Manu Riviere after scoring first goal for Newcastle – yes!!

Newcastle won even though nine minutes into extra time Mehdi Abeid was sent off after receiving his second yellow card – but Newcastle gallantly hung on and then after 22 minutes of extra time it was Paul Dummett who put Newcastle ahead and this time the Magpies hung on – cheered on magnificently by the Geordie fans.

Newcastle may not be doing well this season so far – but it’s hard to fault the effort and grit the players have shown in the last two games, and after it looked like we were headed for another defeat after Abeid was sent off  in extra time, the lads won the game – you just cannot fault the effort tonight.

But before we get too carried away Newcastle will visit Manchester City in the next round – the club who knocked us out in the tournament last season after extra time by a score of 2-0.

Heres how we saw the game tonight.

Newcastle played in their grey strip and the game was fairly even in the first ten minutes.

But then a tackle that Daryl Janmaat didn’t need to make saw Zaha in the penalty box go to ground, and Palace were given the penalty but the replays showed it was a really soft penalty.

Gayle made no mistake from the spot although Elliot did dive the right way, but could not stop the ball and Palace were ahead 1-0.

After going behind Newcastle came back into the game and showed a good reaction, and there were a couple of decent crosses from both wings that Manu Riviere just couldn’t reach – half chances.

And then after 36 minutes it was Riviere who scored his first goal for Newcastle,  and it was a good goal too.

Manu had the ball outside the box and he turned and went to the left of his defender and put the ball into the back of the net with his left foot – with goalkeeper Hennessey not even moving – it was a very good first goal for the Frenchman and should give the lad some confidence.

And Riviere was full of bustle and fight and physical, so its good he got off the mark tonight.

Newcastle had come right back into the game after going behind through a sofr penalty, and at the half it was 1-1 and Jack Colback was here, there and everywhere and had an excellent first 45 minutes for the visitors.

Massadio Haidara came on for Janmaat at the start of the second half.

Sammy Ameobi made a good run into the box after 48 minutes in the inside left position, and he was clearly brought down and it was Newcastle’s turn to get a penalty,

Up stepped Emmanuel Riviere and put the ball home nicely for his second goal of the game – a nice cool finish from Manu.

And a few minutes later Coloccini ran with the ball from his own half,  and put it through to Obertan who crossed and Riviere was only just beaten to the ball.

After 67 minutes on came Moussa Sissoko for Sammy Ameobi, and the game was evenly balanced with Palace trying to do some quick counter attacks against Newcastle to get the equalizer.

With just 10 minutes to go on came Ayoze Perez for Manu Riviere and the Newcastle fans gave the French striker a standing ovation for a very good performance tonight – he looked good tonight and scored two good goals in a short 12 minute span.

But then two minutes into stoppage time, as it looked like Newcastle would hold out, Sullay Kaikai put the ball into the back of the net into the bottom right corner.

Oh my – we just cannot get the win – so the game went into extra time – 15 minutes each way.

After nine minutes of added time Mehdi Abeid picked up his second yellow card, and was sent off reducing Newcastle to 10 men – it looks like Newcastle are finding a way to lose this game, and to make matters worse Adam Armstrong was seen to be limping.

Ant then with 8 minutes to go of extra time Paul Dummett put Newcastle ahead when he turned the ball into the net  from the six yard box with the assist from Adam Armstrong who swung the ball in from the left wing.

The Newcastle fans went wild – and you’ve got to give our lads credit – they are fighting to win this game against all the odds.

Can Newcastle hold out now to get a famous win?

And with two minutes to go Rob Elliot made a fantastic one-handed reaction save from a corner to keep Newcastle ahead as Palace went for the equalizer.

But the forwards started to hold the ball up well upfield to see out the clock – and the whistle was blown for full time – and this was an excellent win for Newcastle.

Now we face Manchester City away in the next round. 🙁

    I figure Pards has chalked off all the bad stats and records, he might aswell start nailing some good ones…. a nice cup run with more practice for the lads is exactly what the doctor ordered

    @dazzler my good man Gouffran is a consummate professional
    He is a natural striker who;s played out of position as a winger ;but he does his job he’s been given dutifully and even manages to score goals from time to time.

    Armstrong puts himself about but hardly makes anything happen. One cross does not erase the fact he does not make any through passes, hardly beats his man like Sammy does, does not score and does not have half the speed of Obertan, or half the engine of gouffran. The fact he’s 17 is irrelevant. If you;re good enough you;re old enough.

    Lets stop looking for easy scapegoats for our terrible start to the season. The only culprits have been Pardew and our dreadful colcinni led defence Not gouffran

    Well. Positives…. 2 goals by rivvy at last. We won a game from behind. We are through to the last 16 of a cup. Won it with 10 men.

    Negs…. still set up to defend. Obviously we must have sat back at 2-1 up. Pardew is going to insist he is a tactical mastermind.

    It is utterly preposterous to be judging Armstrong at this point. Insane in fact. Dummet at CB instead of Colo??? I might agree with that to be fair… but to pull Arma to bits on one game is just stupid ffa.

    Well done Mr Pardew, for putting out a team with a mix a youth and experience that won a match. From the looks of things you are not looking forward to seeing Ashley and trying to explain why you did not loose.

    I wasn’t holding out much hope, at 1-0 and especially when we went to ten men.

    Very pleased to be proved wrong. Can’t help but be a pessimist with the club though!

    Credit to Obertan and Riv. Thought Abeied did well and was unlucky with the red. Glad Arma was involved in the winner.

    Dont get too carried away, still conceding goals against mediocre opposition with much the same defensive crew as usual. Im sure we will all enjoy the highlights, hats off to the travelling faithful, but this is Pardew, people – dont get too comfy. The next big shock is just around the corner.

    A famous victory indeed – it almost ranks alongside beating Barca at SJP!

    A good result of course and given two gutsy performances of late, one must wonder what’s been going on beforehand?

    The fact that Pardew’s been under pressure hasn’t changed his tactics so could we assume that the players have suddenly realised just what they’re paid a lot of money to do – play football and be determined to win games, rather than going through the motions as they have since January 2014.

    Any ideas why we’ve had two good performances?

    We’re due a victory vs Man City sometime soon, but looking at the team they put out tonight, well, lets just say their reserve team beats our 1st team on paper every day.

    Caballero

    Sagna Demichelis Mangala Kolarov

    Toure Fernandinho

    Navas Lampard Milner

    Dzeko

    We can do it though 😀

    Armstrong was a bit anonymous in the first half but then grew into the game and had a cracking second half. He is only 17 for goodness sake!

    Where did i pull him to bits?

    I’m just puncturing the pretensions of those making out he’s been anything other than average.

    By 17 year old standards he;s been fantastic i’ll agree!

    But we dont get extra points for fielding 17 year olds. He’s a senior player and by senior standards he;s been average so far! Stop the false hype when more deserving players like Sammy, Obertan and Abeid get no credit

    Also Dummett should be our starting Left centre back not colocinni

    just going off what i have read here and from bbc text commentary. Did dummet switch to cb? I think he is purely a defensive player and would like him to be tried there.

    If he is fantastic for 17 then you cant say he is an average player. You are all over the place. No one is over hyping him, but he deserves more than one game to decide how good the lad is!

    Didn’t Armstrong score in his last start. That gives him an average of 1 goal per 2 games and makes him our most prolific striker.

    If you are going to judge a 17 year old on the little you have seen so far, then that stat is applicable.

    Toonbrother,

    I am not discrediting his professionalism. I am pointing out his ineffectiveness so far this season, and using it as an example to support my argument.

    Believe it or not, I like gouffran, his work rate is second to none. However in five games he has produced exactly the same as Armstrong has in one game. Armstrong also has ran himself ragged tonight. He has been no better or worse than ameobi was all game, and ameobi played well. Your criticism of the kid is still excessive.

    And what exactly did colo do wrong tonight in your eyes?

    Almost everyone said abeid was man of the match, who’s not given him credit?

    No one has said Obertan or Sammy were shite either, where the hell do you come up with this stuff?
