Shambolic Newcastle Lose Again To Sunderland – This Time 1-0


Sunderland beat Newcastle 1-0 at the Stadium of Light this afternoon, for a massive win for the home side, and that was Sunderland’s first win in the last eight league games, and only their second goal in the last seven games,  and it takes them up to 29 points, and just 6 points behind Newcastle, who suffered their fourth defeat in a row in the league.

Jermaine Defoe scores a stunner just before half time

It was Sunderland’s 5th win in a row against Newcastle – a record – and over the last eight derby games they have been unbeaten – another record.

Sunderland were again much the better side and were a lot more motivated than the Newcastle players, who were simply awful in that first half.

So much for John Carver’s claims before the game that he would motivate his players and Newcastle put in another tepid performance and at times they were a shambles – it was that bad.

John Carver seems out of his depth at this level, and we are just hoping that 35 points will be enough for this season.

The game was won by Jermain Defoe who scored a spectacular goal in the one minute of stoppage time in the first half.

Defoe hit the ball outside the penalty area on the volley,  and the ball flew  into the back of the net past Tim Krul – and the goal came at good time for Sunderland.

Newcastle didn’t get a shot on target in the first half and in one we were “awful” and though we improved in the second half but just a little bit.

Sunderland again created the better chances in the final 45 minutes, and should have won by a bigger margin, but they missed a number of decent chances.

Newcastle only came alive in the last 10 minutes of the game, but what were they doing in the previous 80 minutes?

This was another very poor performance from a patched-up Newcastle side, and the third straight defeat on the road by a cumulative score of 9-0.

And yet before the game so much was promised from both the players and the coach.

When Carver and the players come out in a couple of days, and say everything will be better next week and that they will try to beat Liverpool at Anfield next Monday night – don’t believe them.

Newcastle are struggling big time after the squad has been decimated by injuries, suspensions and some terrible management in the January transfer window, when Newcastle failed to bring in much needed reinforcements.

This is about as bad as it gets as a Newcastle fan and the club seems a shadow of what we were over ten years ago.

Why did Mike Ashley want to buy Newcastle?

    you just don’t get it. on paper we probably have a better team than sunderland, it’s the god awful tactics that are so, so negative. first pardew, now carver it’s all about containment and can we nick 1.

    if the coaching staff have that negative mentality and philosophy how are the players meant to respond, but in kind

    Carver bugger off and take your back room staff and most of the team with you.
    That was absolutely shocking,and what was your thinking in bringing on Armstrong with 4 minutes to go.
    It all beggars belief.

    Rotonda,
    The negative mentality starts firmly at the top, deliberately writing off ANOTHER season is hardly a positive message.

    Hopefully a change of Head Coach will stop Perez from handing in a transfer request. I honestly cannot see him wanting to play here next season, if his future is playing that lone striker role.

    That was the last chance for us to pick up any more points this season.

    Luckily we are safe. No relegation this season, but when Mr ashley offloads key players in the summer without replacing them, we’ll be certainties for the Championship.

    Been to nearly every match (except one year when gf was in Northampton and I had to travel) since I was 14 years old. Not renewing season ticket this year though. Had enough.

    Fickle fan…. Bet you haven’t even been to a match in your life.

    If I was a foreign player I’d get out ASAP.

    What’s the point? Seriously, the club isn’t trying to be good at football, it is trying to make money and most importantly be a vehicle to advertise Sports Direct. There is 0 point playing for this club. It is a career graveyard.

    What’s the point of a sports club that isn’t interested in sport?

    We are dying.

    @ 3

    where do we go from here ?

    excellent question, we are in a seriously bad situation now, liverpool must respond from there terrible performance at arsenal so we wont win at anfield we have no chance, that will be defeat number 6, and then a massive home game against spurs who are still chasing top 4, draw at best i say but if we do lose that will be 7 defeats in a row, absolutely shocking, 9 points clear of relegation we could be 3 points above the drop after these two games if results go against us.

    we’re fu@%ed

    I honestly can see us getting another point. There probably are 3 worse teams but you can still get 200-1 on us going down. Thats got to be worth a sly tenner.

    jail really?
    after todays showing i’d be happy with 1 point

    all i’ve heard this week is people saying we’re safe which always worries me and the performances are showing the opposite if we get tanked by liverpool next week its gonna look even worse

    at least this result will actually bring some real passion and hatred to the person that deserves it!

    Change my opinion?

    I’ve always said Carver is a numpty. I do not stand by the board but we have to deal with it and I have never praised Sammy, Gouffran, Williamson, RTaylor

    Infact show me “changing” my opinion? Please give me an example?

    Only thing I would say is we should have stuck with Pardew until end of season if we could cos clearly the grass is not greener on other side of the hill when MA is in charge.
