Disaster For Newcastle – Beaten 3-0 – Coloccini Sent Off


Everton went into this game having played a Europa League game on Thursday night, and having only two wins in their last 12 league games, and they hadn’t won a league game at Goodison Park for three months.

James McCarthy scores first goal

But they were too good for a poor Newcastle side this afternoon, and just to make things worse after the last game in which Papiss Cisse was suspended for 7 games for spitting at Jonny Evans, Coloccini was sent off for a terrible and unnecessary tackle on Lennon in the second  half – so he will miss the next three games.

This was a big big win for Everton but  they should overestimate it as this Newcastle side was feeble at best and looked very poor.

And to think John Carver and his coaches had 11 days to prepare the side – and this is what they served up – it was utter tripe.

Newcastle almost scored in the first minute of the game when Mike Williamson had a decent chance but slowly Everton started to look the better side.

You cannot accuse Newcastle of being an attacking side under John Carver, and we were very hesitant in the first 20 minutes against a side that was hardly full of confidence.

The Newcastle defense had looked vulnerable and were playing a very high line and Everton had beaten the offside trap a couple of times.

But Everton went ahead after 20 minutes and it was an easy goal for the home side  as Jagielka brought the ball from defense and played it to Lukaka who fed James McCarthy, and the midfielder was unchallenged as he hit the ball past Tim Krul into the back of the net.

Tim Krul seemed to be wrong-footed and should have done a lot better.

When you have nobody who can score goals and you go a goal down it’s not a good feeling, and that’s how we felt for a die that hadn’t won in their last five league games.

Ayoze Perez came on for the poor Obertan at the beginning of the second half but after 55 minutes Everton were 2-0 up and it was another mistake by a Newcastle player – this time by Gouffran who slid into tackle Lennon and brought him down inside the box.

Lukaku made no mistake form the spot.

Then several minutes later if things weren’t bad enough, Coloccini then made a terrible tackle on Lennon and Martin Atkinson the referee, gave the captain a straight red card.

So that’s the second game in succession that we will have had an important players suspended.

There’s no discipline in this side and Coloccini is supposed to be showing leadership.

And in added time Barkley scored Everton’s third after they had easily played out the rest of the game to get only their third win in their 13 league games.

Everton were still nervous throughout the game and a better side could have come back even at 2-0 down, but Newcastle have completely lost their way and are down to the bare bones as far as the squad goes.

Newcastle may be regretting their decision to let Alan Pardew go for £4M to Crystal Palace in late December with no clear plan on who would replace him – and their unwillingness to strengthen the side in January is hitting the team hard.

It’s a good saying be careful for what you wish for – most fans wanted Alan Pardew out – but we now have the inexperienced John Carver in and there’s still nine league games to go.

John has two wins in 11 games and we just hope somehow we can get another two wins from somewhere.

Five sides below us in the league have won this round of games and gained three points on Newcastle, and we are now only 2 points above Crystal Palace and West Brom and four points above Everton.

Next up is Arsenal at home next Saturday.

🙁

If the Newcastle upper management isn’t worried about losing three of the last four games and having gained only 9 points from the last 10 games – and having two of our best players suspended because of indiscipline – then they should be.

Maybe it’s just me – but John Carver seems completely out of his depth as the head coach at Newcastle.

We hope 35 points is enough, but we are limping through once again to the finish line of a season, due to very poor planning at Newcastle.

    What we need is a head coach(a real one) that can build up a good training mentality. That includes getting rid of our current coaches. If the next coach can’t bring his own backroom staff I think we’ll be average for a long long time.

    Our unambitious mentality is down to the core.

    (Repost): Charver’s post match talk:

    Well, there’s positives to take out of today, and nobody loves this club more than me, so they just have to trust me that there’s positives. When I was here last time with Sir Bobby Robson, we went a whole two games without a win, so I’m not worried because — and I’m not using this as an excuse — we have some very important players missing. But, like I said, I’m a Geordie and there were some positives.

    We may as well play Janmaat on the right of a forward 3… seeing as the burden to create assists rest solely on his shoulders.

    This club once gave me extreme highs with extreme lows….these days it’s just extreme lows all the time…not so much as even a slight high to cheer us loyal fans up.

    Waste of time watching this shite week in week out, season after season.

    We are a shambles and have been for years now. Ever since Ashley has taken over it’s been the most depressing football I have ever witnessed.

    We don’t deserve this..no fans do..ASHLEY GET THE FCUK OUT OF HERE AND TAKE CARVER WITH YOU!!!

    1 CB, dreadful appointment and possibly the permanent one come summer, 0 goal scorers, sh1t wingers, squad packed with injury prone and championship players.

    SHUT Up about the fcuken manager and get focused on the real promlem.

    if a new manager was the main issue then your insisting FCB has created a fcuken decent team which is total bull.

    i’m not annoyed to see pardew gone, infact I was extremely pleased myself, we got relegated last time we went manager merry go round and hopefully we will do again next year, difference this time FCB sells.

    What the hell does PL offer us that the championship doesn’t?

    answer- NOTHING.

    cashley doesn’t allow europe. FACT
    cashley doesn’t allow quality players of present to join or remain. FACT
    cashley doesn’t have cup ambition and we can still play FA and league cup in championship. FACT

    we will not get entertining football during premier league. FACT

    I don’t evben think ashley has intent to sell us as i saw stories this morning on sunday sup that palace were linked with a new billionaire now!

    The way this club is being run and the management we have is bound to leave a bad impression! The players will wonder ‘why should we care when they obviously don’t ‘;

    …and that is actually a good question!

    Looking on the bright side it won’t be long before we say farewell to that anonymous grey strip. That alone has cost us 15 points this season.

    I had this down as a defeat anyway. Sadly I can’t see us picking up more than 3 points between now and the end of the season.

    Part of me would like to see us relegated just to show Mr Ashley what happens when you don’t invest in your squad. The other part obviously wants us to survive. This what his ownership has done to this once proud club.

    Well i voted for a defeat because we really are a weak willed and very very poor team with the majority of players not up to standard.Also i get sick of watching second rate Williamson keep putting his hand up for offside instead of just getting on with the game.

    Ashley deserves what he’s getting. He didn’t have the guts to bring in a decent head coach when he had the chance just as he never has the guts to do anything decent for the club. He rolled the dice with Carver and now he’s losing big time. Charnley is just another arse kisser who knows nothing and does nothing. We’ve had a long string of those by now from Ashley.
