Pardew – Difference Was Their Cutting Edge – They Were Clinical


Yoan Gouffran was tripped from behind in the first half today and Newcastle should have had a penalty even though is seems it was accidental.

Phil Jones and Yoan Gouffran – in action today

We’ve seen those given many times and it could have been crucial with the scores still 0-0.

The referee Mike Jones did give Newcastle a penalty after 86 minutes after Jack Colback had been brough down in the penalty box by Phil Jones.

This is what the Newcastle manager said after the game:

“The ref gave us a soft penalty out of guilt for the penalty he should have given us.” “The difference was their cutting edge. They were clinical.”

But while we thought Ayoze Perez and Adam Armstrong both gave a good account of themselves today, we still struggle to score goals – with Papiss Cisse still bothered by that sore knee – so we are hoping for a new striker to be brought in next month.

Manchester United were indeed clinical in front of goal today, and Wayne Rooney is some player – and the Man of the Match on both sides – and it’s interesting he still gets lots of criticism in the English press.

But that’s only because he’s such a good player.

    The biggest crime against Newcastle since the start of premier league is happening right now. I will never forgive Ashley for keeping Pardew as manager. Never!

    Toon kk,
    The monotonous Michael Owen said it can’t be a coincidence about all Man Us injuries and it must be something in training. What does that say about us then.

    I would love to rant about Pards….Point is it won’t change anything as long as ashley is in charge.

    We simply do not know what he plans to do after his brief statement ‘I have no thoughts about selling the club until end of next season’

    He has no attachment to the NE, never supported us and we all know about the free advertising.

    I have no problems running our club in a business way, but to have no ambition other than to just survive in the PL !

    At least let us try and do a cup run….nah it wont happen…..

    Bambams,
    It’s sickening, even if we’d got a good result today it can’t take your mind away from the fact Sissoko will be sold in January if a bid comes in and the season will be wrote off anyway.

    Jail
    I’m not sure what goes on in our training, some times we just simply look lost for ideas and in the past we simply haven’t looked fit enough. The lads looked as if they’ve been pushed much harder this season, pacey player’s have picked up calf strains we also have some injury prone players . All clubs get them but we badly miss Aarons and Obertan.
    Our confidence has dropped but it all boils down to that bit of quality needs to be brought in. Or and pardew needs to be shown the door.
    Bit of a mess really.

    Of course they were clinical, how much did they spend on their strike force and in midfield compared to us.

    Mackems,mackems,mackems, what is it with some of you guys and the f’ing mackems.
    Just because someone, tongue in cheek, attempts to inject a little levity into the doom and gloom, he’s called a mackem.
    For anyone not familiar with the expression, a mackem is a supporter of the team known as Sunderland under Newcastle, ’cause that’s where they usually end up at the end of the season.

    welsh

    what do you think of the reason pardew gave for us losing to scumderland?

    do you think we wanted to win to much ?

    come to think of it, do you think pardew starts every match wanting to win it so much ?

    if so why do we defend so much and not really attack,

    why do we always give the other team the ball and try and counter, and that is our only game plan,

    hmmm, i believe anyone who still defends p45 has to be a scum fan, we have no reason to keep him here, i mean jesus, he went a whole year with a couple of wins, then bags 5 in row, now he is a god,

    and today, who would have made the team out of the injured players?
    krul yes
    im not so sure who else, SDJ maybe,
    cabella was fit and did not start, his prize summer signing, this is a player he was desperate to get over the line last jan, got him in the summer

    hmmmm

    Anyone who defends Pardew is just impressively stupid. The stats on playing Gouffran alone are enough to prove that. His ego is the main thing that stops him being a decent manager.

    No welsh, I never said that at all, I said that the mackems are so pleased with Pardew they too wish he would be given a contract extension, you are a Swansea fan that somehow took a liking to Newcastle when your team was plying their trade in the fourth division, you use this blog solely to wind get a reaction, I wish it was possible to ignore you.

    So there are 20 teams in the premier league and because we lose to one of them and I know they are our main rivals, you want pardew out.

    I don’t think you’re a Mackem Welsh. I just think you’re incorrect about almost everything.

    I somewhat hope you DO actually say the things you say just to cause trouble. If not then it’s pretty worrying. Almost everyone on this blog can see that.

    Catchy, who would have made the team, let’s see, Krul, Tiote SDJ, Santon, Raylor… It might even be nice to even have some options on the bench ? You are so blinded by your irrational Pardew hatred that you can see this ? I’ll give you one thing, your at least consistent, even if your misguided…
