Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player Against Everton?

After four defeats in a row in all competitions and three in a row in the league Newcastle today got a much needed win against Everton – and while the performance was mediocre – it’s the result the lads needed today and we are now in 9th place – half way through the season and have 26 points from our first 19 games –  14 points from safety. 😀

    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.

    Colback, Ayoze or Sissoko.

    Good team win….all players looked like they belonged out there (except maybe Riviere)

    Do we need to have so many names on the poll. Does anyone ever vote for anyone other than perez or sissoko? Haha


    Yeh spot on with that assessment. Martinez is very much like some modern day players who think they can only do one half of the game. Expect fullbacks to get forward but not worry about them or the wingers heading back.

    He took a Wigan team with solid foundations and turned them into relegation candidates every year, but hey they play the ball on the floor when they get spanked every week.

    BPC – They wont be here long enough to build a team around them.

    Building a team to be successful is not part of the Master plan. Perez will be sold for £20 million as soon as the first offer comes in – its the way we operate now; success is not in the game plan.

    Ah shite, 45 of ya have already voted for him! 😆 Savour him while he’s here, gone in the summer is my bet.

    Can people stop going on about how poor Everton were ?Not Pardews biggest fan at all but we hounded them today and kept possession well which meant they looked poor

    A bit like when we got pounded off Spurs , Arsenal and Man Utd recently all of those teams were there for the taking and Pardew set us up all wrong and they made us look Championship level Everton are a team in our mini league at home we should be beating and it was fairly comfortable apart from our defensive laps they did not look like scoring

    Thought Cabella looked dangerous when he came on he has to start against Burnley but Riviere is a worry he has no confidence and does not even put himself about Cisse looked good today was winning headers and holding the ball up pretty good Everton defenders were scared of him

    On the red card incident well what goes around comes around Roberto !! A bit of justice for the Haidara incident !!

    Perez will command a much higher fee than £20m by the time he’s sold. His stock is soaring by the week.

    Comment from the BBC Live Football page from a blue nose scouter.

    “Martinez has absolutely no plan B. He seems to have a unwavering commitment to playing 4-2-3-1 but refuses to change shape or try anything different when it doesn’t work. So frustrating!”

    Sound familiar?

    A decent performance against a very poor Everton side.We started on the back foot again which they took advantage of scoring inside of 5 minutes.From then on it was mostly us asking the questions.Overall a deserved 3 points.

    I support nufc so I give credit to them especially when its due
    I couldn’t give a shit about other teams form or how there playing
    I watched the full game and after going 1 down we dominated and harrassed them for the remainder of the game stopped them having possession and attacked at every opportunity!
    So as a nufc fan I feel I should actually point out the good things especially on here!
    Look at the dry up of posts after we equalise!
    The moaners are only happy when they moan full stop!

    Its hard to argue that Newcastle were exceptional when Everton gifted them so much space and had little to no link up play.

    This is the same Newcastle team that got destroyed at man u and arsenal.

    it’s not a christmas miracle that newcastle looked so much better. We played a different class of team.

    Sky Sports saying P45DUE still to make his appearance for post match interview – Sky also say the rumours about him being favourite to be C Palace next Manager.
    Gary Neville cant see why he would have any interest at all in going to Palace.
    If they offer FCB enough money, even P45DUE could be sold lol

    I had a similar debate the other week about Liverpool boss Rodgers. He was another manager who last year was being so well hyped up and viewed as an astonishing one, he seems to minic pardew in the manner, lose one key player and disaster, pardew was always the fault when we loose the likes of cabaye and ba. Sort of similar really?

    Still feel riviere is one goal away from a confidence boost. But agree with big papa, we need to build the team around sissoko and Perez…. Around someone actually… With pardew it’s always happy go lucky.

    I dont think we should build around sissoko as i think he will go the same way as cabaye….john martinez is not a better than pardew. Overrated and full of rubbish. Pardews game plan is all about containmemt and counter attacking. So what? He has finally decided on sissoko role and if backed instead of undermined, will buy more speedsters and a striker. We badly need a centre half to balance colo. Santon will weaken defence further.

    Perez on 182 votes, colback 2nd with 12… Perez just absolutely brilliant and dont be fulled by the number, colback was amazing as well… Deserves another shot at england imo and perez, playing like this forget the U21 squad, he deserves a full call updoesnt he? I mean what options do spain have up front anyway besides costa?

    Jeff @19 on previous thread.
    First of all credit where credit is due a great win today.
    The poll before kickoff the majority thought we’d loose, but we beat a poor Everton. My comments before kickoff I’ll stand by until I see some consistency, we have a very unpredictable squad which more often than not produces very poor football. You sound very fickle if you think one win in five makes everything ok. Most people were posting how sh.t we’ve been in previous games.
    but fingers crossed we can get some consistency going.

    Expect a decrease in the Pardew abuse for a few days as the haters absorb the fact that his team with Willo(yes Willo who set up our equalizer) and Gouffran in the starting line up, registered a creditable win over the team managed by the guy who a number of the armchair managers were gagging for to replace AP earlier in the season.

    Williamsonis still cack. He hardly played well today and we conceded 2. Pardew is still a terrible manager. He’s got some great players (Sissoko, Perez, Cisse, Tiote, Colback, Janmaat) who are all good enough to play for a top 6 team. Player for player we should be at least as good as Swansea.

    Love what Cissé did. We need players who can bully and react when hassled. D dum ref didn’t blow cos he also saw that Cisse was fouled by Colman in d first place. I don’t need people in my team who get intimidated.
