Newcastle Lose 5th In A Row: 2-0 At Liverpool


93% of our readers cannot be wrong and Newcastle lost their fifth successive game at Anfield tonight, and that was the 20th game in succession that we haven’t won at Liverpool,  and it stretches John Carver’s terrible record to two wins in 14 games this year – and where is our next point coming from?

And just to make it that much harder, Moussa Sissoko the captain got himself sent off after 82 minutes  by picking up two stupid yellow cards in the second half, when frustration got the better of him.

We will see if Moussa will push for a move away from Newcastle in the summer – but he doesn’t look right somehow.

We’ll have our real captain Coloccini back for the Tottenham game – but just to make it difficult for the team Moussa gets himself sent off and will now miss the next two home games.

The discipline at Newcastle this year has been terrible.

Liverpool went ahead after just 9 minutes and it was Raheem Sterling who put the Reds ahead.

The 20 year-old got the ball on the left side after a good ball from Jordan Henderson, and moved inside the penalty area before hitting the ball past Tim Krul into the back of the net and it was already 1-0.

Newcastle played off him but you cannot allow a player with Sterling’s ability to have a free shot in the penalty area.

But then Newcastle came right back into the game and we should have had a penalty when Ayoze Perez was brought down by Lovren – but amazingly the referee didn’t call it – if was a definite penalty as TV replays showed.

Brendan Rodgers even walked over to Carver and said it was a penalty.

And Perez went close with a header and Mehdi Abeid put on just over the bat just before the break.

Newcastle were attacking Liverpool in the second half and we were in with a real chance – but then after  70 minutes Liverpool got the all important second goal.

And it was slack defending by Newcastle as the ball somehow bounced off Mike Williamson, and Joe Allen rifled it into the top corner of the net in an instant.

So after all Newcastle’s pressing Liverpool still went 2-0 up.

Liverpool easily saw the game out after going two goals up, but there was still time for our captain to get himself sent off and Moussa will miss two games, because he has already been sent off this season.

🙁

That’s now five games on the bounce that we’ve lost and we’ve scored just one goal in that time.

Didn’t we say last summer that we needed to sign some goalscorers?

Last year at this time we lost six games in a row with just one goal – so nobody can accuse Carver of having a good record as Newcastle’s coach.

John will go on about the penalty – but at the end of the day we were simply not good enough – again – but we did play well from 30 minutes into the game until Liverpool’s second goal – but as we said that’s not enough.

We’ll have a report of the game out later as we saw it unfold.

We just hope none of the bottom three clubs can get 35 points and our goal difference is now -18.

🙁

    I liked the game plan especially how we hung on to their two goal lead right up to the end. If only we could have put gouffran on a bit earlier we could have got their third.

    Huh, is the season still going? So weird, I thought it was over around January, somebody should probably let the head coach, players and board know because I’d all but checked out…. oh, and pretty sure I won’t be checking back in until Ashley either sells up or spends big. Your move big man.

    Disappointing but not a shock in the slightest.

    What annoys me is that if we put even that limited attacking pressure on sunderland we could have beaten them,

    Ashley hates JD Sports with a vengeance.
    Waving JD Sports carrier bags at the match would give them free advertising.
    That would only be fair wouldn’t it ?

    Pretty funny how Anti Pardew comments in here are so petty.

    I mean seriously. Guy has Palace who where below us by a good few points when he left and now they are well ahead and I would hand on heart say we have a better team.

    Our fanbase is a disease. They want the Keegan way and really what did he win? Lol its pretty funny at how thick our fanbase actually is!

    As for the brainless brunt on TV now. Someone give him a slap!

    People are rightly pointing out he often starts his managerial reign with a bang then fizzles off. Can’t fault palace, seen them play under him and they are doing very well, good side to watch.

    Just showed what everyone already knows…
    Willo – not good enough
    Raylor – not good enough
    Overran – not good enough
    Colback- not good enough
    Carver – not good enough

    I’ll give Cabella this season as his settling in but he doesn’t look good enough
    Perez – not a lone striker
    Gutierrez – not good enough
    Gouffran – not good enough

    Sissoko has clearly had enough of the toon
    Janmatt who is our best player is unlikely to want to hang around next season

    Carver thinks we played well!

    We could have been 5-0 down in the first 30 minutes!

    We have been awful. Last week was the worst I have ever seen us play EVER!

    I mean Kinnear, our team played better under him than this nugget.

    He’s just waste of space. Embarrassing he is from the local area really!

    What has our fanbase done for this club?

    They have chased the likes of Bobby Robson I out of the club! I was at the matches every week listening to the “best fans in the world” telling the best manager we have ever had to leave. And it was the majority of the 52k in the stadium.

    Our team is average. Our club is average and has been for a while.

    Ok we show up (including me) in the masses which means we should automatically win the league, erm NOPE!

    We are not the club our fans make out to be. We are a very very average club.

    pawl…I wont get in to Pardew, he’s gone, yes some fans were imo over the top in their criticism, but it doesn’t matter anymore – we surely have bigger fish to fry, Pardew did.

    “Our fanbase is a disease. They want”….what?

    Pawl, have you read Tony Slaters article in the Mag about standing United? Why are we attacking each other? Even worse, based on generalisations and such.

    The fact that Williamson has so many premier League appearances for us would indicate to any observer with even a modicum of football knowledge that we have suffered massively from chronic underinvestment, especially at centre-back and striker. Two positions that you either have to spend big for or have the ability as a club to nurture through from your academy with quality coaching. We lack any real quality in those key thirds of the pitch. We are completely bereft of leaders on and off the pitch. If you call yourself a fan you must make this message felt by the powers that be immediately. It is your duty.

    Pawl250 you should be proud lad you are one of a select club of complete blocks who post total bosh. This fanbase you insult is the same one that has packed SJP for years, bought the shirts are the pies and got nowt but silence and crap football. It deserves more so wind in your stupid comments and try thinking before you get your thumbs busy.

    Some performance ratings:
    Krul: 7 did what he could
    Janmaat: 6 tried hard as usual playing out of position
    Raylor: 3 easily beaten for pace time and again by Sterling. Finished as a Prem player.
    Willo: 2 hopeless. No more needs to be said.
    Anita: 5, tried hard, looked a bit desperate at times and out of his depth against the pace of pool
    Sissoko: 4, tries, then sulks, then gets himself sent off
    Cabella: 4 brief flashes but that’s all. Not clear he’s good enough for the Prem
    Perez: 6, our best attacker by far, but lightweight. Not sure he will make it with us. Needs better players around him,
    Colback 5. Decent effort. Puts a shift in but will never be a top midfielder in a bottom ten side.
    Obertan: 3, showed his pace but has no clue what to do with the ball.
    Abeid: 5, decent at times, could be a player for us but will he ever get enough playing time?
    Armstrong 4, little or no impact.
    Jonas: 4, little or no impact.

    It is always tempting to paint Ashley as a kind of corporate homunculus, draining the city’s historic passions to service his interests elsewhere but like the notion of Pardew as a grand managerial villain finally ousted, it is a construct that falls to pieces under any serious scrutiny. Ashley is a shrewd and timely operator who has bent Newcastle United to fit the restricted horizons of the new football world. Seven years ago the club was in hock at every level and making unsustainable losses. Ashley has invested close to £300m and despite some disappointing commercial revenues transformed the club into a profitable concern.

    Sage

    I think the fans loving him helps. I mean a rapport brings the team and fans together and that can only reflect when the team are needing that extra bit of encouragement.

    Last game I went to in Sjp I could hear the players and managers shouting it was like watching a Sunday league game! The fans were silent.

    I understand why but when we have it going well like in the past we only have ourselves to blame for sacking the best manager to grace our club.

    Bottom line. Fans like to think it was the board that pushed Bobby away but fans are two faced and for me we got what we deserved for sacking Bobby. I didn’t renew my ticket after what we did to him had to take a few seasons out and when we got relegated it felt like those who pushed him out got what they deserved and I went back felt as though it was about building ground up again.

    Bottom line we have alot of fickle fans.

    But since I was 13 I have only had about 4-5 years without a season ticket (one of seasons was due to my girlfriend living down south and had to travel on weekends) but bottom line is I have supported them alot more than some people on here.

    Do we just accept that we’re now average and fight amongst ourselves?
