Newcastle Player Really Sad About Losing Again

We were very pleased to see 22 year-old Spanish U20 International Ayoze Perez start for Newcastle yesterday, but we lost the game in the first half and just like at West Ham on Monday night we conceded in the first 10 minutes.

Both first half displays in our last two games have cost us the game, and Newcastle must start much better against Chelsea in the late kick-off game next Saturday.

Ayoze Perez – disappointed at the final whistle

Before the Chelsea game we entertain Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night in the League Cup and that´s a good time to see our fringe players put in their claim for a start against Chelsea.

Ayoze was pleased to start the game yesterday, but he was upset the lads lost again.

This is what he has said on the Newcastle web-site:

“We are really sad because it is another game that we have lost, and it is not what we wanted to happen.” “In the first half we deserved what happened. We improved in the second half but it wasn’t good enough.”

“I don’t know why it is not happening at the moment but we have to stay together and take our quality onto the pitch. During the week we can see a lot of quality in training but we have
to do it in matches.”

“I hope it happens soon, and we have to keep working towards this. If we keep working hard then it is not too far away, I’m sure.” “I was pleased to start the game but I cannot be happy because we lost.”

“We weren’t good enough and we have to try to get points as soon as possible.”

Newcastle have four new players in the side and McClaren and his coaching staff are new at Newcastle – so that´s one reason we  have started slowly.

But other managers have got off to great starts at their news clubs – and they include Quique Sanchez Flores at Watford, Claudio Ranieri at Leicester City, and Alan Pardew has already built a good side at Crystal Palace after joining them in January.

We have to remain patient and trust that McClaren and his coaching staff – along with the players – can turn this thing around.

    We are carrying far too many passengers. The likes of Coldback, Sissoko, Haidara, Thauvin, Cisse, Colo etc etc etc have us on the back foot before a ball is kicked, added to that the formation simply doesn’t work it’s no wonder we are already in full panic mode.

    And the question has to be asked as to why we will look to add the players in January we’ve needed for longer than I can remember?

    Ayoze: “Who do I blame? Well, I don’t know is the absolute truth, as is the case I believe for all of us, including the insiders.”

    Cyprus: “I don’t know why it is not happening at the moment…”

    Or is it the other way around?

    You can’t blame all the players, unfair on the rest of us. Pick one.

    He is doing no different to what fans do when picking out 1 player, we have had 3 years of fans putting 99% of the team performance in recent years on just 1 man pardew. When referees don’t give a penelty and send players off, it’s that which will dominate a story leading to a defeat.

    Alan shearers full quote can clearly state he’s talking about them as a whole

    “They are at home and you’d expect them to come out, roll their sleeves up and have a right good go.

    “I looked at Newcastle and thought: ‘No chance’.
    “There wasn’t enough there at all.

    “Before anybody has a pop at me Watford were better from start to finish.

    “They were better all over the park.

    “Deeney and Ighalo were superb and dominated the back four.

    cisse and thauvin themselves only seem a bigger target because they are stand out points, turning thauvin up in a tuxedo every single match and as our main striker ATM cisse is like a statue.

    as for that question
    that is not so much a question it’s a way of stating that shearer himself has put enough effort into his early life to become this great goal scoring geordie whilst geordies like myself and yourself are just the everyday person who watches them.

    Our problem is we dont actually have a team,we have a bunch of players bought with selling them on in mind.
    Good treams have a solid backbone of players who dont have to be world beaters with a couple of so called purples added.Us on the other hand have lots of “hope we can sell this one for a massive profit”maybes.

    After the West Ham defeat “Newcastle may as well have had ten men in the pitch as Cisse was woeful”

    Similar comments about Thauvin as well.

    The reality is that these two players are a very small part of what is wrong at the club, they are two players he singled out when there were at least nine players who were shameful in their performances and should be embarrassed, so if he’s gonna come out with comments like that then give the full picture and don’t single out one or two or he loses credibility.

    And what has Thauvins dress sense have to do with anything? Mbema did the same thing at the Southampton game without it being an issue!

    As for what Shearer has done as a player? I don’t care as he’s now a pundit with a voice and should give a true unbiased view and if was doing that he wouldn’t be singling out one or two players

    See the Chronicle on Newsnow ( Sunday Sun?) is reporting from SKY’s Sunday Supplement and worryingly one Journalist apparently has named Tiote as being poison in dressing room and that they can’t shift him and others because of wages.

    Not surprised at the latter as have been mentioning that as a problem in shifting out those most would like to see the back of.

    Perhaps the time is fast approaching for some free transfers ala Joey Barton? We can all see we have serious problems despite increased spending and new coaches but there are other issued still to be resolved.

    We have a mute, static captain, a winger who wants to player Champions league but performs like a championship player, a striker who doesn’t want to be here and a midfield littered with players who are only capable of four yard sideways passes. We are not a team but a collection of misfits and reject

    I would agree JackButler

    Those misfits were similar at there previous clubs and were bought with the notion we could turn a good profit on them.

    Have we had a worse LB in the last 10 years?
    Exactly why did Colo get a contract?
    Why is Cisse still here?
    And most of all exatcly why did MA apoint SMC ?

    We might spend another 100 million but we will get more of the same as what we have,we would do better to buy the whole of the Watford team.

    Untill MA goes things will always be this way.

    “The disappointing thing about the second-half is that we didn’t get hold of the ball or create a chance to get the winning goal”

    No so much disappointing Mr. Pardew as much as it’s been the norm all season under you, we are only capable of putting in 45 minuet performances

    JackButler // Apr 21, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    We can all name dozen’s of managers that we think would be better than Pardew, but the fact remains that unless Ashley can see that we need a change then we face another season of excuses and poor football.
    We have the 20th richest club in europe but have a management and coaching team straight out of Sunday league

    JackButler // Apr 21, 2013 at 12:53 PM


    Martinez may play nice flowing football, but he’s had Wigan involved in a relegation battle every year and seems incapable of finding a blend between good attacking football and solid defensive performances, but he’d still be a better option to Pardew who has us set up with little attacking flair and one of the worst defensive set ups in the league

    JackButler // Apr 21, 2013 at 1:43 PM


    Whereas I agree with what you are saying, it’s bloody hard when we are being served up poor to average football every week.
    We can’t say that we have lost form as we have been playing this way all season long and have failed at every turn when we’ve had the opportunity to push away from the bottom half of the league.
    Tactically Pardew continues to make glaring mistakes that cost us every game and for most the time has come when we simply can’t take anymore. If we don’t voice our concern’s, worries, then nothing is going to change.
    We have a chancer in charge as manager who needs to go asap or this once great club will fall away again.

    each and everyone of these posts reveal you act no different yourself whilst pardew was in charge mate

    i cant stand this jumping on the bandwagon because a former pro has said this and that about a player as we should open our eyes and make our own judgement !

    hairdryer gave away the ball that led to the second goal which is fair enough a mistake from a young lad and he should have done better and known but tbh its the only mistake i see him make all game and was largely great at defending and attacking up and down the wings all game.

    janmaat has a better delivery than hairdyer but if we are looking to compare the two he made just as many if not more mistakes defensively by turning his back for the goal and on other occasions in that game.

    if i was to put a weak link that was at fault for both goals and which could have led to 1 or 2 more on watfords part if i’m honest it was colo ! he mark’s space and not a man or even goes to the man when he has the ball as he just backs off and lets them shoot or pass.

    also the calling of thauvin is another jump on the bandwagon imo as he was great once he got into the game ! he had a good shot or 2 and got the ball into the right area of the box its just the player that was there did not go for it and stood outside the box still at the time.

    imo siem should be played as a striker in place of cisse as a no9 and wijnaldum needs to be played as a cm not a no10 or acm as he was kinda disapointing.

    Agree Tauvin started slowly had a decent second half as well as his shots he tried a couple of chips over the top which we were slow to react to and could not get on the end of.
    Problem people have there favourite players who can do no wrong and players they dislike and even if they have a decent game say they were crap

    My evaluation of the squad:

    Krul-good keeper
    Darlow-Decent and has potential and ready made replacement for krul
    elliot-pardew’s lover boy couldn’t care less if we got rid of him

    janmaat-top class player and is a leader (apart from his red card)
    mbemba-been decent so far
    coloccini-past it and shouldn’t be captain
    Taylor-Seems to be alright, sometimes makes mistakes but knows what it means to pull on a black & white shirt
    Williamson-Do i need to say anything
    Lascelles-Unproven, but seems to have good potential, would like to see him get a run out against chelsea
    haidara-proved that he hasn’t got the quality made far too many errors
    dummett-don’t think he’s good enough to be a LB, maybe a CV

    wijnaldum-was anonymous yesterday but will come good
    colback-puts a shift in but just cannot play as a lone holding MF
    anita-too light weight and again cannot play as a lone holding MF
    tiote-Unfit, lost his pace, but on his day is our best ball winning MF
    Thauvin-Again unproven, hard to tell whether he’s going to come good
    Obertan-headless chicken
    Sissoko-headless chicken
    De Jong-Always injured, but seems to have the intelligence and reads the game well
    Gouffran-Ruined by pardew
    Marveaux-Ruined by pardew
    Aarons-Has massive potential but needs to be nurtured and stop being played at left back

    Mitrovic-I believe he will come good, can lead the line, and is passionate
    Cisse-Doesn’t care, good at poaching goals but awful in build up play
    Perez-Works hard, Agile and skilful but needs good players round him, cannot do it all on his own
    Riviere-Injured, was awful last year
    Toney-unproven, came from northampton has potential.

    Squad still needs majorly overhauling, and needs so much more PREM PROVEN quality and experience.

    Biggest weakness for me is the midfield which has to be one of the most unbalanced midfields in the prem. We’ve got one out and out ball winner in tiote, 2 grafter/sweeper’s who are way too lightweight in colback and anita, a double 6 MF in wijnaldum, and a box to box/winger in sissoko, THERE IS NO DEDICATED PLAYMAKER

    Wingers is also a problem, we don’t seem to have a quality out and out winger, i think thauvin is more of a wide playmaker, aarons is still developing, sissoko is just an athlete and cannot deliver a good ball, obertan/marveaux/gouffran are useless, we don’t have enough wingers who have the intelligence to create angles and create 2 v 1, 3 v 2 situations.

    I also think theres a worrying lack of pace, you could say perez is quick but he’s more one to come deep, we don’t have a rapid striker who will play on the last shoulder.

    Left back is a major weakness as well, 2 of our LBs just don’t have the quality, not one can deliver a good cross, haidara is good at getting forward but his end product is so bad.

    Another £50m needs to be spent in january on at least:
    1x CB
    1x LB
    1x CM
    1x ST

    For me one of our main problems these days is Graham Carr .

    Yes he pulls out a few gems like Perez & Janmaat, but he highly recommends someone like Thuavin when the likes of Payet and even Sakho from the Championship look much better players .

    from January to the next summer window(if we are still in the Prem) we need to buy players go build a quality and experienced spine in the squad, I would buy:
    • Ryan Shawcross
    • Jeffrey Schlupp
    • Victor Wanyama
    • Jonjo Shelvey
    • Yannick Bolasie
    • Callum Wilson
    • Charlie Austin
    Those 7 players will cost around £100m but they are what we need

    magscar- I have read your report on the game and was at the WHU game and had thought we would beat Watford. Although the second half showing was far better we still look poor and bare a strong resemblance to the stuttering team under Carver. Macca is under pressure now because the players look anything but a team that is gelling and playing with confidence. Watford had 15 new signings and also under a new manager looked far better organised.
    Your comment on Tiote, is illustrative of other teams not wanting the players we want to sell. Ashley should have cleared the decks of the baggage if necessary at a loss in order to assemble a stronger squad. This would have enabled Macca to insist that Carr should bring in more Premier League experience or players who are at least equipped physically for the league. The Manager does seem to have had this resisted.We could have signed the likes of Austin, Moses and Payet. Together with a dominant CB. Payet looks a superb signing and at a reasonable price.
    Irrespective of the forthcoming fixtures being against Chelsea and ManC we do need to approach the games in the manner of our second half showing yesterday. Macca needs to play Perez, Thauvin/ Aarons, de Jong and Sissoko in centre midfield. Haidara was at fault for the first goal and defensively looks a weakness but what are the alternatives. Your comments on the crowd were echoed by family members who said there was a nervousness until well into the second half.

    Also Anita & Colback have to be two of the biggest pushovers in a PL midfield . How are they supposed to up against the likes of Kouyate, Song & Wanyama .

    I have been a big critic of Tiote in the past but at least he has a bit of tenacity. Also De Jong needs to start games if we want to score as we are badly lacking Cabaye’s creativity STILL .

    Also 4-2-3-1 isn’t working especially with Perez or Cisse leading the line .

    It’s hard not to pick out more than 1 or 2 if we don’t want to admit we’re just not this decent team everyone made us out to be, my take on it is they generally all crap players but at this moment in time it’s cisse statue like game, thauvin’s slow weak cabella like game and colo’s poor leadership that stand out most of all but generally speaking the squad is the strength of a relegation battling team.

    Carr has scouted alot of players some whom have gone to different clubs and are doing really great!

    Some we have signed who are not producing…

    The main difference I am seeing is those who we haven’t signed that are doing great are playing at a club who are playing well!

    Those who have come here have joined a lousy club…with an average manager replaced with an equally average manager!

    The system at Newcastle from top to bottom is definitely flawed. But we keep on doing the same mistakes – in not buying what we need but what seems to be an investment.

    First of all, how very sad if you to go back TWO YEARS to try and find a post to justify you being right and me being wrong, but there you go it takes all kinds I guess, but if I may I will retort –

    All those post you so laboriously dug up deal with my opinion of Pardew, the man at the helm of the team at the time, but there are plenty of posts about Ashley and Charnley being the main issue at the club if you wish to take a peek, but don’t let that get in the way of you trying to twist things to suit your weak argument. My point all along is that Shearer is/was wrong to single out just two players when the entire team is at fault, yes both Cisse and Thauvin have been very, very poor, but so have Sissoko, Coldback, Colo, Haidara etc etc etc. So why single out just two players when the whole club is broken? Would replacing those two player alter the results or performances of late?

    Anyway, no doubt you’ll be off now to dig through the past seven or eight years of posts in the hope of finding a way to prove yourself right, well, I’ll save you the bother.

    I Jack Butker, am wrong, I have always been wrong and no doubt I will always be wrong, Toonking has proven this beyond a shadow of a doubt and I kneel to his greater intellect and understanding on all things relegated to Newcastle United Football Club. I am simply humbled to be able to post on the same blog as the afore mentioned Toonking and I wish it to be known to all who may read this that from this point onward, I defer to his greater knowledge and insight and I will forever agree with his opinion, no matter what that opinion may be.

    There you go should save you an hour or so of old posts

    Cisse and Tiote shld leave our club in January. do Pardew style send them to the reserves.

    We r not good at defending never had been so we shld attack attack attack. 4-4-2.
