Newcastle Star Must Be More Respectful – It Was A Heartbreaker


It was a bit of a surprise when Remy Cabella was the man substituted when John Carver brought on Gabby Santon for his first game since 1st November, when he was injured against Liverpool.

Peter Crouch of Stoke City celebrates scoring their first goal

Heartbreaker – Peter Crouch’s late equalizer

And it was clear he was not happy at the substitution, and the crowd wasn’t too pleased either.

But you cannot have little displays of frustration and childishness on the bench – which is what happened – when Remy threw a water bottle down to signal his anger at being taken out of the game.

This is what John Carver said about that display of petulance after the game to talkSPORT:

“You don’t do that – not with this group of people, you have to respect everybody. Everybody has to be patient for their chance. If you have to come off and somebody else goes on then don’t be disrespectful to your team-mates.”

“The important thing is we are working as a group, not 11 players. It’s a squad of 22 or 23 players.” “It’s important they know that.” “We have a young group of players out there coming from different cultures.”

“You have to understand in this league that you have to go to the last minute. You have to see out games.” “We do concede one or two late goals and it’s not good enough – we need to look at it.”

“There’s no reason for it other than switching off and losing concentration.” “We are in good physical condition and there’s not a problem with the condition of the guys – it’s just a mental thing and we need to address it.”

It was all looking like it was going to be another three great points for Newcastle with 5 minutes to go, but then some warning signs.

Gabby Obertan and then Ayoze Perez both missed golden opportunities when the score was 1-0, following an excellent go ahead goal after 74 minutes from Jack Colback.

And Newcastle were punished for their misses when Peter Crouch scored the equalizer on 90 minutes, when it looked like we had put on a professional performance, and had a second successive win within our grasp.

It wasn’t just two points lost – it was two points thrown away.

Now the lads will have to regroup and take all 3 points at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night – a defeat in that game would not be good.

    I’m not sure why cabella came off, rather him moving to the middle and having obertan on for colback who was struggling.

    Cannot blame Cabella for throwing the water bottle – would of done the same – a lot more worse than him today – Colback and Sammi for two. Crowd weren’t impressed either booooooooed Carver’s decision and cheered Cabella as he went off the pitch.
    Most dissapointing was the Pardew tactics today – set a team up at home not to loose.
    Should be fun Wednesday who is going to ‘outPardew’ pardew- bet Pardew does not play with one up front

    It’s pretty simple really johnny boy. The lad was one of our better players today so why take him off when shammi was ineffective and basically offered zero. I’d be pissed too to the point I’d of probably thrown the nut on ya.

    Shite game today aswell.

    Tbh the way he was peforming compared to Sammy etc you could argue it was disrespectful to haul him off

    Carver could also count himself lucky that bottle wasn’t hoyed directly at his face

    As for pops about professionalism, you set the team up wrong John, got the subs wrong, got it all wrong tbh, take a look in the mirror and have the decency to walk away in the summer

    Agree on colback too. Apart from the goal he was poor.

    Ridiculous way to give up a point. It was wide open at the end. We gave them all kinds of space to run in and they took advantage. What were we thinking?

    We had ample chances to put that game away and failed. Obertan seemed to take some of the steam out of us, especially on the break. He wasn’t ready to play. Bad sub JC. Harrumph!!!

    Nobody in the team played well for the whole game. Colo was fairly steady and could do nothing about their goal. Cabella and Perez both showed nice flashes. Not keen on Obertan coming in at all. Overall we gave that one away JC. 👿

    should of had a nobody button months ago
    I refuse to name a MOM today as there was no-one.
    i felt a bit sorry for Willaimson today – far from the world’s best but got know help from his team mates. When he has the ball why doesn’t anyone make themselves available (midfield) for a short pass or move into space.
    We must be one of , if not the most static team in the premiership – when colleaguehas the ball – NO ONE moves, creates space, busts a gut make runs, or make themselves available, attack as a unit, run the channels for a pass.

    We should have been able to close that one out at home. Should have been 2-0, done and dusted. I’m still upset!

    As I said we’ll slowly slide down the table with JC and finish about 14th. Pathetic Ashley.

    How are we supposed to keep our spirits up when we’re presented with bollocks like that? It’s not acceptable. Next Crystal Palace away. I’m not looking forward to it after that shambles.

    Agree with everyone else – Sammi was completely ineffective in the second half and was wandering around looking knackered – was amazed when Carver took off Cabella for Obertan
    We need 9 more points and hopefully we’ll get them , it’s going to be tough with this bunch of monkeys running the team

    Cabella should not have been took off. Disagree with Colback he had a reasonable game today it was Sammi who had a shocker in the second half. Did anyone see Carver in the technical area in the second half because I didn’t. The man is a joke tactically useless one up front at home pathetic. Do us a favour go and join your mate Pardew. I thonk he rang him before the substitution who should I bring on Obertan of course was Pardew’s reply and take that creative player Cabella off. Only surprise as well is he didn’t play Gouffran. Please please go

    According to Percy before he left this is the best squad we’ve had in years. Then why are we so pathetic? We have some very weak players who need to leave. We have some older players who need to retire. What we don’t have is a deep enough squad or a decent owner.

    There is a good reason for it JC. The same old tactics and formation stinks, and despite saying we didn’t need to buy, we have needed to buy since before the end of last season.

    Even if we win, we still not going anywhere.

    Not Relegated Neither we will go for Europe

    Basically we are just finishing our remaining games, on the same times players try to perform so they will be “bid” from bigger clubs.
