Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player At Chelsea?

We were pleasantly surprised with a great performance from the lads in the first half this afternoon at Stamford Bridge, as we outplayed Chelsea and were the better side in that first half – even though we went 1-0 down to an Oscar goal just before the break.

But we couldn’t keep it up in the second half, and Chelsea got a second form Diego Costa just before the hour mark, and comfortably saw out the game to go back to top of the Premier League after Man City could only draw 1-1 at Everton.

With both Burnley and Leicester winning today, Sunderland are just one point above the drop zone, after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Liverpool after Bridcutt managed to get himself a minute or so into the second half.

Newcastle remain on 27 points in 10th place from 21 games played, and are 8 points above the drop zone and 6 points from 6th place.

    Third time lucky…..


    Nothing to be ashamed of today, with some promising first half showings. But “well-beaten” in the end.
    We have played some fluid football in periods throughout the season. But only when we have managed to close the “Pardew Gap” between the midfield/defence and attackers that Tsunki talks about.
    But time is running out for the luxury of “decent” defeats. If we play okay against Southampton and Hull, but lose both, the table won’t look so clever by the end of the month. Stoke, Everton and West Brom will all improve.
    We will miss Cisse’s goals. We need a new coaching team. Now. We need to sell no-one. And we need a new CB. Just to stay where we are.

    A very decent performance today I thought. It’s not wise to post on here straight after the game …especially when alcohol is involved but I couldn’t help to wonder what a prospective head coach would think if he was watching today. I would imagine he’d be thinking to himself that there’s a lot to work with what he’s just seen. Goodbye Pards,hello front foot.

    Toonking – yeah agree we don’t really have the head to aim at in the box,. That’s why we need a good attacking midfielders but really we have a defensive/holding mid with sissoko as a box to box, sometimes he is effective sometimes not, but he doesn’t have a good pass and his touch can sometimes be laughable. Not to day he isn’t good, on his day fantastic to watch but we need variation to support him. Cabella. De Jong, and Sammy could be our outlet but we need someone who can get them into the right positions.

    They played as I thought today, capable and to their ability. We only lack the missing piece, a real tactician and motivator.

    G2 good post last thread.

    If we had forwards who could run as fast as ed posts articles we’d be buzzing over a 6-0 win today 🙂

    Now hopefully with a good coach and a bit more interest or better still, more cash from Mashers, we could see some nice football at SJP.
    Merson must have been reading some of the stats on Pardew, he was being unusually complimentary today.

    toonking – why don’t you control your gob you clearly misrepresent my position – probably because you are too thick to read a post correctly. Knacker!

    I didn’t see enough of the game to ho for a MoM but I have to give credit to carver for starting Cabella. Should have started with Sammy maybe, and shame he still plays Willo at all, and Dummett at Lb. If he’d have pushed that boat out, might have been a better day who knows.

    Sorry Willo, I must sound a bit like your personal toonbotherer 🙂

    for the rest of this season i would say we stick with carver.

    we all want to see FDB arrive and knowing he wont’ be able to arrive until the summer, the last thing we want to see appointed is manager/headcoach who can do great.

    so who better than carver?

    yes he’s not the best but i’m sure he’ll provide better football now than he did last season, that time as assistant manager he probably was doing as pardew told him, now he will do as he wants, being a geordie, he should know attacking football is what we want.

    if as expected he doesn’t perform well enough to guarentee us suvival over the course of a whole season we’ll see him leave during the summer and FDB appointed “hopefully.

    Gutted about the result today for us fans and player’s, especially after that first half display. What a shame we didn’t put away our chances whilst we were on top.

    I mentioned earlier this morning that if we gave it a go and at least tried but lost then I wouldn’t be too disappointed. We tried, we failed and ultimately paid the price, albeit with a sucker punch which I’m sure many knew was coming or could envisage happening.

    Did cabella finally come of age today? Looked much better.

    Willo is not a premiership quality CB I’m afraid to say. Seems like a good guy and tries but it just isn’t good enough. Liability.

    Much prefer to see dummett at CB as at LB he’s average at best. Who’d of thought we’d miss pumper eh lol.

    All in all we gave a decent account of ourselves, away, at Chelsea.
