Nightmare Game For Newcastle Full-Back


The story of this game was that for 40 minutes Ecuadorian International left winger Montero was just too much for Newcastle’s Dutch International left back Daryl Janmaat, and after picking up a yellow card after only 17 minutes it was almost inevitable he would get another one as he kept fouling Montero.

And sure enough on 41 minute Montero beat him once again and Daryl pulled him back, and it was another caution and he was off.

Game over.

janmaat sent off swansea

Daryl Janmaat sent off after 41 minutes

That was the game right there, after we had gone behind when one ball from Shelvey split the Newcastle defense wide open, and Bafe Gomis scored all too easily.

To make things worse Sissoko pulled a groin muscle just before half time.

Steven Taylor came on in the second half but Ghanaian International  Andre Ayew scored with a header after 52 minutes from another Montero cross, and Swansea could have had more but thankfully it was only 2-0.

So two former Newcastle transfer targets who went to Swansea scored against us today.

On a lighter note think back to who actually played well for Newcastle and let us know who you though our best player was this afternoon.

We did start to play some good football and were even getting back into the game until Janmaat received the red card.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player At Swansea?

    If this match confirmed anything its the fact we need a new Left sided central defender ASAP
    1. Abdennour
    2. Kongolo
    3. Anybody!
    Not signing one equates to signing a death warrant for this team’s premier league status

    When Mitrovic is fighting fit, is he a heavy weight or super heavy weight?

    The defence is a worry.

    But….

    Does anyone know how many players still on our books have scored a WINNING goal from open play in 2015?
    Including the friendlies.

    Colo playing CB for us in 2017: “Colo advances slowly up the pitch with the ball. His knee brace and artificial hip seem to be giving him some bother…..”

    Our toon I suggest two things.

    1) if you keep 4231 then play mitro but like you really worried about him getting sent off.

    2) if you want to keep cisse on the pitch play 2 up front even riveire with cisse would be better than cisse on his own.

    In the last 9 months, NUFC have played 15 away games!!
    Played 15
    Won 1
    Lost 12
    Drawn 2
    Goals scored 8
    Goals conceded 33

    The defence is shite and only adding ONE young CB is not going to solve the problems. Collo was absolutely shocking today.

    Don’t look for an apology. Colo went AWOL for the first goal last week. But he kissed Ayew for the second this week. It’s an improvement. I’m still to see the first coz the screen went blank.

    But one thing is for sure if 4231 is set in stone we may aswell put cisse on the next plane out of here.

    Very poor today and Janmaat oh dear..

    Massive shock with De Jong like hahaha.

    This laddy is struggling badly to get himself right, huge doubts with the lad with it working out at NUFC.

    This Mitrovic needs to calm his head down, he will be a target for the refs now. Nout will go his way with his temper. The lads already got a reputation after just two sub cameos.

    I can’t believe people slating Aaron’s though. Think he touched the ball twice one time got away and passed to haidara who let the ball roll under his foot. Other time I think he lost it but so difficult to even judge a player in them circumstances.

    That’s a formation, not the countdown to Mitrovic being booked.

    Swansea are a solid outfit, so I wasn’t expecting more than a draw, however we still have some serious problems that need addressing .

    Collo is finished and has been the common denominator in our dreadful defence the last few years however I don’t see him being dropped or replaced based on Mclarens comments .

    If He and Haidara are in the starting 11 for the majority of this year then top 10 will be a struggle IMO .

    Also if no one else comes in then Ashley has once again screwed NUFC fans over and he has done the bear minimum AGAIN and I won’t be going to St.James’ anytime soon .

    What can you say to Schteev, except I told you so and the only reason the fans haven’t gone too ballistic is that we’ve actually spent money this season, but that is where it ends. The squad is nowhere near strong enough which is no surprise – since at the end of last season it was clear we needed at least 8 quality players and I said we should be looking at least at a £80m -£90m spend and that would be just to catch up. Ok we all know it’s early in the season but some of the decisions made like playing Obertan are making the same mistakes of the past. We had targets previously like Gomis, Ayew and a list of others and we chose not to pay the extra million or two to get them. This is Newcastle’s problem – it’s called making do – and as we all know very well, making do is not good enough. There are 2+ weeks left until the end of the season to buy more quality players or if not by Xmas we will be out of all the cup competitions and a long way from a top eight finish. You can take that to the bank Mike ! – See more at: http://www.nufcblog.com/2015/08/15/janmaat-sent-off-sissoko-injured-in-2-0-defeat/#comment-1526288

    4-2-3-1 could work with Mitrovic, but not with Cisse IMO .

    He may pop up with a goal, but his hold up play is none existent and we are worse of as a team .

    That was pathetic Big Pappa mate. The squad is still full of dead wood. Everyone said before the summer that we needed 7 or 8 players out and 7 or 8 new ones in. We will remain a joke with Ashley.

    wow , where to start.

    huge contrast between the 2 first games , couldn’t have been more proud of the first game , ashamed of the second game,

    Chancle was our bright light today ,

    Janmaat got himself sent off

    MF went totally missing

    obertan had a shocker but we knew he would and the ONLY reason he stayed on was for his pace in the last 10 mins

    Papis needs service , he got nothing today.

    All I can say about it is it is SM first real away game , he can see for himself we need a lot of coaching , esp away from home.

    I have faith though.

    Not a lot to say that has not been said already, total shambles by a club who are suppose to be moving forward from last season. Well if that display is moving forward I would hate to see us drop back into the old ways…..Oh wait!

    The buck has to stop with McClaren, he said he is happy with the team he has…..OK OK so he’s reading the same script that was given to the inept one. The fact is he put that team out there and we were totally destroyed by a very good Swansea team, Janmaat sending off did not help, but his tactical changes did nothing to improve us.

    Mitrovic will have to start finding the net soon to make up for all the suspensions he is going to pick up, he is getting himself noticed by the referees and for all the wrong reasons.

    Finally…. We are in trouble, big trouble, this is the same drivel we had served to us all last season….Nothing has changed!

    I don’t really rate Depay all that much .

    Bayern’s new signing Douglas Costa was brought in for a similar price and looks twice the player Memphis is .

    We remain a deeply disturbing outfit led by a mental midget. Ashley thinks Colo can still play football!!! And so apparently do McLaren, and Carr who are both on the board!!!! Fong them I say!!!!
