Newcastle In Deep Trouble After Pathetic Second Half Display


In what was a game between the two worst performing sides in the Premier League this year,  Newcastle went ahead mid-way through the first half with a first ever Premier League goal from Manu Riviere after 21 minutes, but Matt Philips scored after 54 minutes and Leroy Fer hit a great goal after 61 minutes, and even QPR – who are already relegated – got the better of Newcastle in what was are 8th defeat in the last 10 away games and we now have lost nine of the last 10 games overall and have 1 point from the 30 played for – which is nothing less than an absolute disgrace and a shocking collapse.

Leroy Fer hits the winner – a screamer

Newcastle went ahead after 21 minutes through Riviere and we were 1-0 up at the break – just what we needed – but then the team collapsed again after the break and two goals in seven minutes was enough for Newcastle to register their ninth loss in the last ten games – an unbelievable and complete collapse by this Newcastle side.

So what on earth did John Carver tell the players – or not tell the players – because if we could have retained that 1-0 lead we would have been safe.

We are now paying the price for not bringing in an experienced coach and sacking John Carver some weeks ago, and the 50 year-old can yet take us down after we were only 14 points from safety half way through the season when Alan Pardew left.

On this form Newcastle deserve to be relegated, and another poor performance from the Newcastle team with the players in the second half not even wanting the ball.

Too many of the Newcastle players are wimps – and there will be panic in the Boardroom so poor have Newcastle performed under Carver.

John Carver  just doesn’t have it in him to inspire the players and we keep dropping off the pace ion games and paying heavily for it.

Next week Carver must start Cisse and Aarons and we cannot keep them on the bench with relegation staring us in the face.

We are not helping ourselves at all,  but the fact Hull were beaten 2-0 at Tottenham means they will have to beat Manchester United at home next Sunday to overtake Newcastle.

And Newcastle will be safe if we can beat West Ham but winning doesn’t seem to be on the cards for the Magpies these days,  in what must be the worst performing side in the Premier League this year under John Carver.

It’s just too bad to be true, and we had a good chance to win this game but again lost yet another one and Carver now has just 10 points in 18 league games and two wins in 19 total games this year.

If that is not pathetic, we don’t know what is.

And we don’t want to hear from John Carver and the players about the great things they are going to do at St. James’ Park next Sunday against West Ham – they’ve been hopeless this year under rookie coach John Carver – and the job is far too big for Carver.

This is simply the disaster scenario playing out for Newcastle this year – and heaven knows what Carver will say in his press conference – probably blame the players – again.

Whatever happens next week against the Hammers this will be the second worst season ever for Newcastle United in the Premier League beating by 2 points (at the moment) our relegation total of 34 points in 2009.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player At QPR?

    Got to pray, Man U win tomorrow so they have something to play for against Hull. If they lose to Arsenal, it could well be a run out for their youth team.

    yeah we want Man Utd to be playing for 3rd or better as finishing fourth is a lot worse.

    You have to come back weeks earlier and play a play off home and away leg and you could get drawn against a half decent side.

    Pretty sure 1-3 go directly into the group stage

    next week the team I want to see, (probably will not happen but who knows)

    _____krul
    jameet__colo__dummett__jonas
    arrons__colback__abeid___sammy
    _______cisse____perez

    sissoko now is another michel owen, all he’ll be bothered about is the move next season, cabbella himself might be good in the french league but that league is a B league, the premier league requires much more speed and power. Rivere himself might have scored a goal but overall he’s too un reliable cisse is the main goal scorer and as for raylor well the leg injury has ruined his career, now he’s not got the speed in his leg.

    Those bloggers who repeatedly stated that SJP is just one big advertising hoarding for Sports Dire. Con are so so right.
    Ashley wants to expose Sports Dire as a global retailer to worldwide audiences in China, USA , Australia and across Europe.
    It’s impossible to effectively advertise nationally in countries like China where the population is besotted by betting and Premier League Football so watching Prem league games on TV is everything.
    Without Prem League and Sky TV Ashley’s business model is knackered rather like the club so he would then have no reason to retain control and would sell up. Maybe he could buy Villa or Palace to cozy up with Pardew again. That would be nice.

    Didn’t carver say yesterday he wished the 3-0 defeat at Leicester bands early as it woke the players up?

    Seems like the players decided to go to sleep again. Lol. What a fool.

    carver will get the job. ryan taylor and facundo ferreyra will get a new 5year deal. aarons , janmaat and perez (our only decent players) will be sold.
    sports direct will become our shirt sponsor.
    and stupid newcastle fans will still turn up to support ashley’s team of below average players.
    so obvious it is! assuming we’re still in the prem next season! (as ashley will never ever splash the cash to buy a decent head coach and 15 decent players)

    TK, his attitude is also affected by his attitude for the game, which is a positive, attacking outlook with movement from his teammates needed for his game to flourish.

    We haven’t been a positive, attacking team on even a mildly consistent basis for years and years.

    When we’ve played our best stuff in recent years (as the 433) Hatem was superb.

    I’m still a huge fan of him, but that’s just me.

    We deserve to go down more than any other team.

    Well that was depressing! Honestly, as much as it will hurt, we deserve to go down 100%. And when I say ‘we’, it doesn’t apply to the fans. We don’t deserve this but on the players’ performances, running of club, management, etc, we are the worst team by a mile

    We don’t deserve to be in the premier league, MA for 8 years has took us as fools and has used Newcastle for advertising his tacky brand.

    The players obviously don’t want to play for Carver and it’s obvious no one wants him at Newcastle whether a coach or a self belief head coach.

    If Carver stays at Newcastle I expect even worse atmosphere towards him even worse that what Pardew received from fans.

    Next home game against WHU all fans should boycott, why go to support the regime when the regime couldn’t give 2 f@ck about there paying customers? And don’t give me that crap about supporting the team because you just make yourself look even more stupid than you already are.

    Don’t turn up against WHU.

    one of the most talented players out there but mentality is at least half of the job. something our players and staff at newcastle do not realize

    I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Charver rang Pardew before the game and he told him to play the ‘solid’ players who would be in for the fight.

    I’m honestly shocked he didn’t play Gouffran.

    No Ashley at the game? Whatever could be wrong Mike? Not feeling well? You don’t enjoy the excitement of watching your beloved club any longer? This is so sad for you I’m sure. Possibly you should just lock yourself in your bedroom and count the cash again.

    Sums it up for me. All those points are valid.

    Utter fcuking shambles.

    It would take the entire Neville family and an entire room of touchscreen consoles to point out all of Newcastle’s flaws this afternoon, but just a few examples will suffice.

    “Bringing all 11 men back for corners when they were 2-1 down and chasing the game in the final minutes”.

    “Moussa Sissoko standing with his hands on his hips in midfield as his team were attackin”g.

    “Free-kicks sailing straight out of play”.

    “Needless corners being given away”.

    “Loose balls bobbling listlessly for seconds on end before anybody bothered chasing them”.

    “Newcastle are a Championship team in all but name, and next week their former manager Sam Allardyce will relish the opportunity to make it official”.

    Good point ilovetoon @21. Still, believe it or not they have less points than us. Although they took 3 from us today as easily as taking candy from a baby. Still Mike is very encouraged. Give Carver a new 5 year contract and 2M pounds to spend in the summer and everything will be fine. No really.

    Abeid was our centre mid rock during our 6 game unbeaten run and he gets dropped…why?

    Anita gets dropped for this game because he’d criticised Carver who don’t forget is the best manager in the premiership!

    Who outside of Carvers little world would have kept picking Raylor?

    Why adopt Pardewesque defensive tactics to hold onto the lead when we murdered them in the first half and our premiership future depended on it?

    Carver is proper thick…he has no idea whatsoever and I would put Beardsley in charge for the last game

    Cursed, maybe, but, Hull are also not noted to be a positive and attacking side where his skills can be utilised correctly. He doesn’t do himself any favours at times, but being asked to play as basically a full-back defending all game when he is an attacking player would knock the enthusiasm from me too. And I did play as I wide forward/forward as it happens.

    Plus, the lad was ruined here by being messed about and his state of mind wouldn’t have been in the best of shape, however it may have seemed on tv.

    Put him in a positive team and get him to do his running by pressing the defenders with the rest of the team is much better than the negative aspect of sitting back and defending. It’s a mindset which I think would get the best out of him. We did the opposite of what I believe would have benefitted him more, but what is new…? Our coaching and management has been poor for years.

    being in the premier league provides ashley with lots of things great for buissnessmen.
    1. extremely large TV deal,
    2. the dearest prices for tickets
    3. world wide TV, therefore world wide SD adverts
    4. the ability to bring in youth players that can go on and move to a top team for extra money.

    the championship doesn’t have WORLDWIDE TV, no worldwide TV, NO SD, the championship doesn’t have constant TV money, just a parchute payment and if he can’t get back up then that his last big payment.
    the championship team are crap therefore fans will not be as happy with such expensive ticket prices

    finally players will not want to use a championship team as a stepping stone, so he’ll have to rely on playing that are over the age of 30 or gamble the use of youth.

    last time we went into the championship we had a group of player that had great leadership and that enabled the team to get the confidence of going straight back into the premiership, this time everybody, players fans media managers, they all know this club is a shambles, therefore, they not bothered about the club at all and just want to see an end to mike ashley, so he’ll end up living life in the championship and it will not take long for him to go and sell the club
