Newcastle Get Valuable Win – Beat Everton 3-2


Newcastle beat Everton today at St. James Park after going behind after only five minutes, but after 68 minutes we were 3-1 up with goals from Papiss Cisse, Ayoze Perez and Jack Colback, but Everton pulled one back with eight minutes to go, but our lads hung on for a very valuable 3 points.

In this game the result was much more important then the display.

Jack Colback after scoring his first goal for Newcastle

Newcastle went behind after only five minutes in this game, as Everton played the ball down the right wing, and when a low cross came in it was Kone who put the ball home, unmarked six yards out – some terrible defending by Newcastle.

Yoan Gouffran was asleep on the left wing too, as the ball was played inside him, and it was a poor goal for the Magpies to concede.

Not a good start to this game.

After 30 minutes Papiss Cisse was seen before a corner to elbow Seamus Coleman, and the TV commentators suggested the FA have the right to look at this after the game and possibly give Papiss Cisse a three game plan for violent play – oh my – hope not – we’re already going to be missing him for the African Cup of Nations early next month.

We better buy two strikers next month.

After the early goal Newcastle pressed and came back into the game and attacked Everton, and after some decent pressure it was Papiss Cisse with his 9th Premier League goal of the season who equalized after 34 minutes, and it was a well worked goal by Newcastle.

Colback gave the ball to Tiote after a corner and Cheick swept the ball high to the far post, where Mike Williamson did very well to pull it back, and Cisse hit it first time into the back of the net – it was great technique from the Senegal striker – it wasn’t an easy chance.

Janmaat had a great chance to put Newcastle 2-1 up when he stabbed at the ball a couple of yards out but the ball was blocked – it was a great chance gone begging for Newcastle.

At the break it was 1-1.

After 50 minutes Cisse almost got a second goal for Newcastle as he hit the ball towards goal, but the goalkeeper only just got his hand to the ball to send it for a corner.

Everton struggled to get the ball clear from the resulting corner, and Sissoko picked up the ball ten yards outside the box and put it nicely through to Ayoze Perez, who had four men between him and the goal, but the Spaniard brilliantly put the ball into the back of the net after 51 minutes, for his 5th Premier League goal of the season.

After 68 minutes it was Jack Colback who put Newcastle 3-1 up, and it was a good through ball from Janmaat (who had another good game today) that wasn’t cleared by Everton’s Ross Barkley, and Jack did well to beat the goalkeeper to the ball, and that was his first goal for his home town club.

AFter 72 minutes Papiss Cisse was replaced by Manu Riviere, and Papiss got a great round of applause from the Newcastle faithful.

But things are never easy for Newcastle, and after  84 minutes Everton pulled one back, and it was another terrible goal to concede, as a long ball beat the Newcastle defense and Kevin Mirallas was onto it and beat Jak Alnwick to the ball to stick it in the back of the net, and it was 3-2 with still a nervous 8 minutes to play.

Remy Cabella came on late in the game for Yoan Gouffran just before the 90 minutes was up.

Everton came at Newcastle for the equalizer and that creates openings on the counter-attack and Perez hit a post very late in the game, but he waited and waited and lost the ball and the chance was gone.

But Newcastle hung on over the four minutes of stoppage time for  our first win in five games, and the first win since we beat Chelsea just over three weeks ago.

We needed the win today – and that’s a huge understatement – the performance was just OK but the win should give our lads some confidence to beat Burnley on New years Day – but our defense is still far too porous.

Anyway it’s 3 points.

Phew!!!!

    Comeeeee on!!!

    Grit, determination, good goals.

    And plenty players to come back into the fold! Burnely next.

    Top eight is looking good for me.

    Can’t ask anything else with this squad of players and the injuries this season also.

    Very happy Geordie.

    All the reporting i have read has said everton were poor, disorganised and clueless. That being said, we still had to score the goals and create the chances and pass the ball around, so it is still a good win. You can only beat who is put in front of you after all.

    Im not sure what Martinez was thinking today. Was he playing 5-3-2?

    Just bizarre. The spacing & structure were all completely wrong.

    Martinez pretty much gift Newcastle the win

    Manx,
    I’ve always said Martinez is a poor manager. His selection today was shocking and despite me not being happy with our lineup I said pre game that there was little to worry about in theirs.

    They were awful, even worse then I expected. Still, I thought we performed well and controlled the game, for the most part in their half. Created good opportunities as well. Happy with the performance, but it doesn’t detract from the fact Everton were awful.

    Great result and definitely deserved. Late cameo from Rivière shows how poor he is he doesn’t even look like a player, he just runs around avoiding the ball and bottling challenges. Cabell low on confidence, should have buried his chance. Outstanding again from Perez, can’t believe how good he’s been. Now we just need to sign some quality to play alongside him.

    If they would sort the defence out, we would have a fighting chance of doing something. Get rid of Williamson & Saylor in Summer, bring in 2 quality CB’s. Get rid of Colo in the summer and replace him.

    Starting the new season with 3 good CB’s will make a huge difference to the team.

    The three worst managers are Pardew, Bruce and Martinez. Martinez coaching today was inept.

    On a side note, Toonking , your “Parjew” lame joke shows what kind of pathetic person you are.

    we might well have played well, but this everton team is one of the worst defensive record in the PL, only QPR worse.

    next week we will be playing burnley and they will be much harder to break down and having drew 2-2 against city, they shall have lots of confidence.

    i myself don’t blame him as much as some but their is no denying he needs to be more threatening through out the games, not just a threat during the second half.

    Everton will show our sad excuse for a sh.t football team how to play.

    Not even going to watch today, Team selection is horrendous .

    Willo Championship quality, Gouffran doesn’t bring anything to the team and Cisse isn’t and never will be a lone striker FFS .

    Perez himself says he is a striker, so play him there FFS not in the pi55ing wing .

    Disgraceful team again! 2 dm’s against a piss poor everton team with as many injuries as us and are there for the fcuking taking! Goofy again! Willo again! And that bastard 4-2-3-1 cum 4-5-1 again! At home ffs! Your a first class Knobend king. Defensive, containment shite again. He’s most definitely reverted to type now and those who say he hasn’t, well they haven’t got a clue.

    Decent performance today. Got the job done.

    The only concerns are how sloppy the positional play for their two goals was from out back line and Alnwick not judging the flight of the ball. Other than that Everton didn’t have a sniff and we controlled the match.

    Need to be tighter going forward as burnley are looking alright at the minute, can’t afford to gift them two goals like we did today.

    I remember is discussing Martinez as a manager and being slated by a few on here for criticising him. As I’ve said, his plan A is nicer to watch that Pardews but no more effective and he also lacks plan B and can’t organise a teams defensive shape.

    Cisse will get a 3 game ban for the elbow and rightly so, don’t want to see that on the pitch.

    But Martinez can’t complain too much, people rightly point out how he defended mcmanaman, its swings and roundabouts, sometimes it goes for you, sometimes against you.

    Sage,
    Yeah, I have received similar slatings on here and in pubs on 2 continents. Decent passing style, but very little substance, shocking at organising a defence and zero idea on how to change a game.

    He has also come out and praised their performances today, incredible. They are looking more and more like his Wigan side every time I watch them.

    Good performance overall against the worst Everton team for years. Defence is still our problem and although we have brilliant individuals in Sissoko and Perez, I’m afraid Pardew still hasn’t found the best way to make them gel together. Too much of the same in midfield for me and that’s where Cabella could shine in the hole. As for slagging Rivierre off, I just can’t believe it because the lad simply hasn’t been given a chance to show what he can do. Last game it was Armstrong now Rivierre? What’s wrong with some of you people?

    We played well. We controlled game. We were incisive on the attack even without a recognised winger and an attacking left back.

    Perez was again MOTM. Must be the buy of the year. Janmaat was also excellent again as was Sissoko.

    Everton is not the team that Moyes left. It has lost something.

    We can expect the usual chorus of feeble ‘excuses’ why NUFC beat Everton today from the usual suspects.
    Fact is, we dominated the game, apart from the last 15 minutes.
    A glance back at the pre match and during the match comments from the armchair managers on here, make hilarious reading.
    I’m not sure if MSK21 dec with his pre match statement “Willo, Tiote and Gouffran in the same team with Pardew in charge 99.9% defeat, trust me” or Midweek Weekend with his “3 – 0 to Everton as Willo and Gouffran playing”, deserve the egg on the face trophy this week. Suggestions for any other contenders ?

    Honestly, if what you say is not agreed with 100% you argue you head off over it. Everton are currently a poor side. We did great and took total advantage of that, and played very well in the process. I am very clearly not the only one who sees it that way.

    My opinion of Martinez remains the same after today. Lovely guy when he’s winning but such a poor loser. Also agree with Malta Mag re our players who some want out without them ever having been given a chance. Some of our “fans” (?) seem to suffer from extreme knee jerk impulses and are so fickle. E.g. Dummet was the worst player in the prem and weeks later became our defensive saviour and is now in decline again – apparently. Jeez!
    As for today and the Cisse incident. He should have been sent off BUT prior to that we should have been awarded a penalty for the wrestling he suffered from the defender – if the rules of the game were applied correctly and consistently, which of course they are not. Much was made by Sourpuss and his pal about Cisse but nothing was said about the defenders actions which in any other part of the pitch would have resulted in a free kick. We all remember Willo being sent off for a similar action. No, it’s much more sensational to lambast Cisse for the arm eh?

    Malta, Rivière has been giving some chances but he just doesn’t look like a player. It actually says a lot with so many first team players injured he hasn’t featured more and Arma has been picked ahead of him. What do you think that means? It means he’s not even showing through in training. Go back and look at every time he’s been on the pitch in a competitive game and you’ll struggle to find one good thing he’s done. We bought him because he was cheap, available and could be brought in on low wages. It’s embarrassing to watch him stumble around without ever getting the ball under control or making any contribution. I think he might be the worst striker we’ve ever had play for us, and in counting some pretty bad players in there. He does not have the ability or desire to compete in this league, we should loan him out to anyone who’ll take him and hope to unload him in the summer.
