Shearer’s Twitter Reaction To Sixth Derby Defeat In A Row


Alan Shearer has reacted on his Twitter account to Newcastle’s sixth defeat in a row to Sunderland –  this time 3-0 – and Alan is right – although we had plenty of possession we had not cutting edge today up front. That’s now 13 goals conceded in the last three games.

🙁

And the reasons (sometimes known as excuses) keep mounting up as to why  Newcastle have now lost six games in the first 10 league games and have conceded a massive 22 goals – which is the same as Bournemouth who were hammered 5-1 at home today  to Spurs.

We have 6 points – one win and three draws – and are now second bottom of the table above only Aston Villa – whose manager Tim Sherwood was fired this morning.

alan shearer recent

Alan Shearer – penalty yes – red card no

Just like last week was two steps forward – this week was three steps back.

We should be two steps forward again next Saturday night after we have played Stoke City at home.

We hope we will be two steps forward again next Saturday night after we have played Stoke City at home.

    I am not sure here people get the fact that we are going to be fine?

    Where is the fine coming from. You kind of make your own luck, its pointless playing well when the entire back 4 sabotage the game game in and out.

    Every collapse was to the back 4 and the mid 2’s not tracking back.
    We are not safe at any point until we are safe.

    And has this what it has come down to? Being safe???

    Count me out

    Ashley out!

    Shearer has beaten me to it. Just about to say that we were poor with delivery of final balls and finishing. The game should’ve been out of sight.

    Terrible mistake from Colo but with 11 men there was only going to be one winner, shame a red card ruins us again.

    As for the denying a clear goal scoring opportunity, that rule needs to be reviewed. I’m not 100% sure it’s a clear opportunity as I think either Elliot gets there first or quick enough to totally another it.

    Also he foul gave them a penalty, which in fact gives them a clear goal scoring opportunity. I think that rule has to change.

    Can see why the red gave the red though, very tight margin so can’t really complain, Colo should have handled the situation much better and not given the red the opportunity to make a decision.

    We were also wasteful with our chances and really that makes the defeat a deserved one. Got to be clinical, especially with 10 men.

    I disagree. 1st goal was purely colo’s fault. 2nd goal was poor defending from a set piece. 3rd goal was Court on the counter due to having a go to get back in the game with only 10 men

    you are right mate we seem to be playing much better football now than we had been during pardews later spells as manager but all it needs is a mitrovic, mbemba and wij injury and we’ll see it back to square one with a willo colo CB pairing, a goufran or obatan wide man and a cisse perez front men

    Wijnaldum is awesome , when we get some more players in January , and the team gets it’s shit totally together , what a team we’ll have !!!
    Poor Mackems , we even had more possession with 10 men , they are doomed .

    At the end of the day the mackems were lucky, out of the last couple of the games against them today was the best, we showed more guts today than the other matches put together, we turned up today unlike other matches, just we didn’t score, the score dosent reflect the match.

    Whilst entertaining and attacking football might be good to watch it’s not going to guarentee us those results. Not every game will have a team with as shambolic a defence as that of norwich but what every game will have is a shambolic defence like that of newcastle and whilst our attacking players might look strong today showed us they not as certain to get them scored as that of a top team.

    If it’s entertaining football we want the best route for ourselves is dropping down into the championship where our team will be a higher than average team but in the premier league we’re just too vunerable at the back to consistantly push men too far forward.

    13 goals in 3 games is definitely relegation form. For me the only good thing to come out of the match is that Colo will now be missing from our defence which can only be a plus.
    His pace has gone and to be outpaced by Fletcher says it all. Who will be Mbemba’s new partner, Dummett, Lescalles, Williamson or Taylor? None fill me with confidence but must be worth giving Lescalles his chance, can’t be any worse than what we have now.

    Lesson from today – build a proper back four with two highly competitive subs. And replace Tiote, Colback and Anita with a good defensive mid pair and a proper engine that wants the ball forward.

    Whilst opinions drives football debate I think one ore two on here today have revealed their football credentials are lacking in respect of the penalty analysis.
    Clearly an unfair barge – not charge – by ol’ permed hair. Nothing at all the matter with a 50/50 shoulder charge -but it wasn’t that at all.
    So I would say yes penalty but not a red card -yellow -yes.

    How long are we going to say well that was a decent 45 minutes, that was a decent 70 minutes, we played better football. Lads n lasses in case you forgot the object of the exercise is to get some points in the bag – not being appreciative of what might have been.

    The penalty analysis on MOT2 tonight will be very interesting.

    Having a hard time wrapping my head around Mitovic. Doesn’t appear to read the game and more concerning, he just seems lazy. Perez and Wijnaldum never stopped hustling.

    What’s Klopp doing right that Rodgers didn’t I mean they might as well have kept Rodgers, then again rushing in to things, a bit like us some might say.

    I’ve definitely seen positives recently with us getting more bodies forward to give options. We need a top draw leader at the back to organise that defence and probably an inform Tiote or a new holding player.

    Colo only missed one game which is a shame

    Very disappointed today, yes a penalty because of colo, but certainly not a red card, then colbach gets a yellow for arguing his case with the ref, who was appalling, meanwhile That filthy B****** Cattermole runs around fouling everyone without so much as chat with the ref, I counted three yellow card offences. Perhaps the ref can sit at home tonight wearing his scumberland shirt, disgraceful.

    We played you off the park until the ref spoilt it, and we still had more possession than you, the way you played today it should be you that’s embarrassed!

    First half you dominated – no doubt , Defoe coming on & the pen changed the game
    Cant say for certain if it was a pen – Shearer thinks so

    Just watching Liverpool. We really missed out out on Van Dijk. Very solid , reds the game well and class on the ball.

    Thought we controlled the first half today and would have gone on to win without the sending off.

    yes we can blame the back 4 for the loss , but our final ball in the box was again dire. That performance today was a mile better than what ive seen all season. the football i thought neat , our movement was exceptional
    we found our men, but that final ball just wasnt there. Robbed ?? yeah i think we were , never a sending off and with 11 men on the pitch there was only one winner. The way i look at it is , if we keep playing football the way we did today we will be fine , yes we need to strengthen in the new year but i enjoyed our attacking play today . lets face it , we were still the better team with 10 men . lets not be too harsh on the lads today , its coming but we have to work defensively , we all knowe that but its getting there while sunderland will go down . for sure .

    Ancient

    It’s about denying a goal scoring opportunity, nothing to do with theast man. Depends if the ref see Elliot getting their first.

    I think elliot might have been getting their ok, but can totally see why the ref sent him off as could argue fletcher might have got a toe to it first
