Unchanged Team For Newcastle At Sunderland

Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren has just named his team for the Tyne-Wear derby at the Stadium of Light this afternoon and as expected it’s unchanged from the side that won 6-2 against Norwich City last Sunday.

Newcastle will continue to play in a 4-4-2 formation this afternoon.

Teams:

Sunderland: (4-2-3-1): Costel Pantilimon; DeAndre Yedlin, Younes Kaboul, John O’Shea, Billy Jones; Lee Cattermole, Yann M’Vila; Adam Johnson, Ola Toivonen, Jeremain Lens; Steven Fletcher
Substitutes: Vito Mannone, Patrick van Aanholt, Sebastian Coates, Sebastian Larsson, Jordi Gomez, Duncan Watmore, Jermain Defoe

Newcastle (4-4-2): Rob Elliot; Daryl Janmaat, Chancel Mbemba, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote, Jack Colback, Georginio Wijnaldum; Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic
Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Massadio Haidara, Jamaal Lascelles, Vurnon Anita, Siem de Jong, Florian Thauvin, Papiss Cisse

Referee: Robert Madley (West Yorkshire)

Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez will again be up front and let’s hope those two – plus Gini Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko – play as well as they did last time out.

Bit it’s our defense that is vulnerable – as it has been for the last three seasons – and we have to hope they are a lot better than against Norwich City.

This is what Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren said about this game last this week:

“It’s good to see Sam again and good to see him back in the game so quickly,”

“Sam is an experienced manager who does a very good job at every club he goes to but I’m hoping it will take him at least a few weeks to find his feet at Sunderland.”

“He will come in and feels he’s got a fresh start at Sunderland, but we are just focusing on what we can do and not worrying about the opponent or the manager.”

“Whoever the manager is, it’s the Premier League, it’s the biggest league in the world and each game is massively important.”

“We don’t know anything about the previous five games and neither do half the players,”

“We’re here to break history and tradition and we’re here to prepare and win the next game and that’s what we’ll be doing.”

“I don’t think there are any favourites in this game. It’s a derby game so form goes out of the window – it’s a cliché but it’s true.”

“It’s going to be difficult but we know their players very well and whatever the system and whatever their style of play, we know it’s going to be tough.”

“The main message we have for the players is to focus on their performance and doing their jobs properly.”

“Our message to the fans is that we’re focused on winning this game for them. What we want to do is focus on getting the result we want.”

“If we do that I’ll be absolutely delighted – not just for our players but especially for the fans.”

How Will Newcastle Fare At Sunderland?

    If we keep 11 on the pitch then we have a real chance of getting the win.

    Colback AND Tiote is the worry, plus who knows what is in Mitro’s head today….

  • 2 Toonfan8 // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:05 AM

    Come on lads, we have to win this one…if we do this, we will be upbeat and will climb the table…This is the match of our season

  • 3 mindshaft // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:06 AM

    Hopefully Tiote won’t get sent off and Gini / Socks will actually track back and help defence out

  • 4 firebug666 // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:10 AM

    Now we have a team that are starting to gel and understand each other, these players are starting to show some pride and passion, all the things that have been missing.

    Not just 11 players going out there, it starting to be a team.

    3-0 to the Toon

    HWTL

  • 5 lochinvar // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:10 AM

    The Mackems will take one look at Tiote, Sissoko and Mitrovic staring down at them and poop themselves.
    If those three are running at you you will be drawn to try to stop them leaving space for Perez and Windjammer ( typo but seems to work )
    What’s the phrase , oh yes, attack attack attack

  • 6 Magpie Season // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:12 AM

    Why doesn’t Ed put up the other teams line-up?

    Anyway,

    Adam Johnson starts. Although Defoe is again on the bench. So is Larsson.

  • 7 catchy in norway // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:12 AM

    you have it it a nutshell. can see at least yellow for all 3 mentioned.

    hopefully their resident nutter cattermole may see red.

  • 9 Magpie Season // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:12 AM

    Woops my bad he does.

  • 10 toon kk // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:13 AM

    Tiote?, he’s an unfit waste of space in a must win game.
    we’ll lose our teams are finally balanced, but it means more to the Sunderland players.

  • 11 Rotonda heights // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:14 AM

    windjammer – i like that, could catch on.

  • 12 toonbrother // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:14 AM

    We’ll defend deep so probably wont be battered defensively
    Colocinni is the biggest liability in this otherwise excellent team
    Dummet and Haidara should be starting side by side

  • 13 Rotonda heights // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:16 AM

    I can’t believe you’ve mentioned Colo !!!

  • 14 sing in the corner // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:16 AM

    Tiote…hmmm.
    Not happy with that but I guess its all been said over the last few days about that conundrum.
    I hope I am very wrong and he and Colo roll the clock back a couple of years performance-wise.
    Lets get right behind the lads anyway!!! HOWAAAAAYYYY!!!

  • 15 AncientC // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:19 AM

    Larsson & Defoe on the bench. Ha, that will do nicely.

  • 17 AncientC // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:21 AM

    Tiote dispossessed Norwich 3 times in the 45 minutes he played. Anita didn’t take the ball away from Norwich once in his 45.

  • 18 catchy in norway // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:22 AM

  • 20 firebug666 // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:23 AM

    AncientC

    Maybe his plan is to keep it tight for 70 minutes and then bring them on when we are tired. No Borini for them today, must be injured.

    I hope that by the time he gets Larsson & Defoe on the pitch it all over for them.

    3-0 to the Toon

  • 21 Munster Mag // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    Bobby as a proper toon fan i have muchos respect for u but i know a few people who know quinn and say he is one ofthe nicest men u could meet. If was an ex toon chairman we wud love him, paying taxis etc. last time i heard him on tv and we got some sort of result he was saying what a great clun nufc is. Id expect more from you bobby but for me today quinny is a tool.but sam is the antichrist

  • 22 toon kk // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    Dummet, Colo, Tiote and Colback oh dear we’re going to struggle.

  • 23 nut meg // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:27 AM

    If anyone is going to get sent off my money would be on Cattermole or O’shea before anybody else.I think they’ll have their hands full with Mitrovic & Perez.We need 11 players on the pitch ,cool heads can win us this game.Come on boys,you can do it. 0-2

  • 24 TheToonKing // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:32 AM

    I don’t like Tiote in there….hope he has a game reminiscent of 2-3 years ago.

    Let’s try and not get anyone sent of lads , this is a dangerous game.

  • 27 sing in the corner // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:35 AM

    Munster and Firebug from earlier

    Its not really about Quinn’s personal life, work for charidee etc. Its about him as a mackem, him as a football pundit with a vested interest in SAFC, which he displays every time he comes on tv. As Bobby said – its incredible that he’s the ‘neutral’ tv jonny in loads of toon sky games / media comments and puts the delighted boot in. Rarely an ex toon player in our games on sky. He’s booked for them whenever he’s available.
    Anyway, stuff him. If we do the business of course he can’t crow, obviously we gave him enough ammo over the last 2-3 years. HWTL.

  • 28 AncientC // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:36 AM

  • 29 Munster Mag // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:36 AM

    Janmaat looking far too relaxed for my liking.sam is properly pumped up. I hope we match his passion but sissoko and colo probably wont. Mitro will play like we want.htl

  • 30 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    maybe we can wind cattermole up and get him sent off and play a man up for a change

  • 31 Lindisfarne // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    What is the tactic going to be, sit back let them bring the ball out and hit them on the break? Or press high?

    Our defence is culpable either way, but they don’t have the players to dominate possession and we struggle to break down defensive teams. Its going to be edgy until a goal gets scored.

  • 32 catchy in norway // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:43 AM

  • 33 colwell // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:44 AM

    Bad feeling about today Sam has put Fletcher and toivonen knowing we have no height at the back with Lens and Johnson crossing in all the time I think we’ll lose this.

  • 34 toonbrother // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:46 AM

    Colocinni will cost us at least one goal today!
    So we need to score two to get a win
    Allardyce has placed emphasis on defending since he arrived at Sunderland
    so i dont think we will score more than 1 goal today

    My verdict
    :Chances of Victory today are VERY SLIM
    Will most like be a draw or defeat
    Until Colo is removed, the problems in defence will remain

  • 35 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:46 AM

    sissoko will be key again. if he acn show the quality on the ball and the accurate crosses he provided last week – we will win this easy

  • 36 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:46 AM

  • 39 Malta Mag // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:48 AM

    Tiote is a wise choice if only to combat Cattermore and stop us being steam rollered. I can’t say I’m too confident to be honest but surely after last week we can beat these moronic demons?

  • 40 toonking // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:48 AM

    I might not like anita himself but i’d rather he started ahead of tiote, odds of a red card must be low the best bet would be which one, mitro clattermole, colback or tiote?

    sissoko himself needs to be more displined down his side of the pitch this week and will know getting back can still get him a chance to score or assist during the counter.

  • 41 toon kk // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:50 AM

    Our defence is far too weak to win this game, we’ll never cope with any pressure they put us under.

  • 42 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:50 AM

    Will the Makems sell all their tickets? Disgrace if they don’t.

    For some unexplained reason I am more nervous about this game than I would normally be.

  • 45 Bobbybee // Oct 25, 2015 at 11:52 AM

    Munster, I fully appreciate that he really is a nice person and as far as it goes, he would’ve been a great chairman for us. Sadly, he’s not ours, he’s 100% theirs and therefore can never, ever, be a neutral. If jesus was a mackem I’d feel the same about him ffs. This isn’t about nice people mate, he’s a f#cking mackem – end of. 😉

    Dummet weak link so far, too loose with his touch on a few occasions under no pressure.

    WTF!?

    Unbelievable.

    Liability in the extreme.

    Initially I thought the keeper was getting there regardless, but no, ref is right, Fletcher was at least meeting the keeper at the same time.

    COLO OUT!

    Done everything but score and then that.

    Pathetic captain.

  • 148 toonking // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:50 PM

    we ourselves should be ahead at half time but instead a awful attempt and stupid bit of play at the end colo has left us 1-0 down.

    GET AWAY

  • 149 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:50 PM

  • 151 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:51 PM

    It was clear penalty. Colo was out muscled by ball going to elliot. He didn’t have to do what he did. Red card was harsh but definite penalty.

    Our captain is a disgraceful defender.

  • 157 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:52 PM

    That’s why experience is an overrated asset.

    Can’t correct stupid and rash, no matter how experienced, it’s not the first time he’s done it, only this time he’s done it when we were absolutely dominating and gave away a pen to boot!

    Should be the end of his NUFC career.

    Never felt so let down, because we was in such ascendency the game was only going one way.

  • 158 colwell // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:52 PM

  • 160 JDdubai // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    Not a foul, you see that 100 times a game. F.ucking disgrace.

    Shoulder to shoulder

  • 161 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    A hand in the face in one box and shoulder to shoulder in the other.

    Got to say Fletcher ghosted past Colo far too easily.

  • 162 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    It was going to elliot. Colo pushed Fletcher. Total idiot.

  • 163 ochytoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    It’s not a penalty. That is one of the worst pen calls I’ve ever seen, referee has made a shocking decision. Coloccini was stronger, that is all. But I forgot that there is such a strive to make football a non-contact sport these days ffs

  • 164 catchy in norway // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    fletcher did not have the ball under control, they were both running onto it, it was plain shoulders , thats it

  • 165 LGFUAD21 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    Refs hands were tied.

    It was a foul. And if it was a foul it had to be a red.

    Stupid decision from colo.

    Disgraceful we were dominating.

    And where was our pen for clattermoles challenge on gini.

    We need some luck.

  • 166 Jib // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:53 PM

    The Second half will be a good test of character for NUFC and the ref – the scum have no character Allardyce and SAFC are a perfect fit.

  • 167 Munster Mag // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    Penos like that are given every day. Colo too slow. His own fault. We were playing so well but havent tested keeper enough

  • 168 lochinvar // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    Colo was too slow going across and Elliot too slow to read the situation and should have had the ball earlier to avoid the mess we’re now in

  • 169 Magpie Season // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    Think SM will put Dummet at CB & Haidara at LB, rather than have Lascelles.

    As for who is coming off…if he is ambitious he will take Tiote off & go for it. If not then Mitrovic.

  • 170 AncientC // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    I don’t think this game is over yet. Wijnaldum has been running the show, we have enough pace to still do some damage.

  • 171 ochytoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    To anyone who’s saying Colo is an idiot, have you played football before. Shoulder to shoulder is never, ever a foul.

  • 172 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    @jdubai

    Of course. Just not in the penalty box. Colo should have used his brain. Penalty was correct.

  • 173 LGFUAD21 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    The only case I would say we have is that fletcher wasn t getting to the ball. That’s the only basis the red could’ve played for no penalty and it would have been being liberal.

  • 174 toonbrother // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:54 PM

    I hope Macca brings in Haidara and not willo
    hope he is smart enough to give Dummet his chance at centre half

  • 175 Take a Chancel on me // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

  • 176 JP...from The Rock // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    1- Colo shouldn’t have played him onside!
    2- Fletcher made the most of it.
    3- Should have been a yellow.
    4- WTF!!? How can this happen when we hve been bossing the game.

    I fking hate the mackems and dodgey decisions!

  • 177 Klam3r // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    Pitty Colo dodn’t hit the ref. Then he would be history!

  • 178 yorkshire_magpie // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    @ilovetoon8788 exactly. I think the occasion got to the referee and thats why he gave the decision because of the fans reaction!

  • 179 JamesToon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    As much as colo was so stupid and has literally just handed the Derby win to them (strip him as captain immediately and gives jamaal a run in the team) it wasn’t a pen, and we should have had one with Gini.

    Awful ref, Sunderland have been awful and everyone knows after that 43mins that was the only way they were gonna get the result. Only 1 team that’s played football today and that’s us

  • 180 ochytoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    No it’s not a foul. Shoulder to shoulder is never a foul regardless of the position

  • 181 davis_toons // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    Listen here IS Shoulder to Shoulder!

    The Ref is NOT CONSISTENCE AT ALL!

    ilovetoon8788 are you a clone of toonbrother?

  • 182 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    It wasn’t so much the shoulder barge. It was the fact that Colo failed to track Fletcher’s run. Too busy ball watching and got caught flat footed.

  • 183 toonbrother // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    COLOCINNI has been a curse on this great football club
    Its so sad.

  • 184 welshgeordie9 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    How the hell are we 1-0 down, dominated the 1st half, they have been crap, we should have had a pen seconds before they had theirs.

  • 185 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    Fletcher was at least getting there at the same time as Elliot if unimpeded, have to say it’s a goalscoring opportunity because if he got a toe in first he’d have scored.

    Colo should have been much more subtle and eased in to him or just covered the keeper.

  • 186 Toon Tang // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    It may or may not have been a pen but we should not even be having this discussion.

    The ball was traveling harmlessly through to Elliot plus if Colo wanted to try and make a challenge why not slide and take the ball cleanly. Never a sending off though I know that much.

  • 187 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    @ochytoon

    Have you seen football? I’ve seen many penalties been given in the epl for that foul. It was clear penalty. Colo was slow and out muscled. He’s an idiot.

  • 188 LGFUAD21 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    Shoulder to shoulder isn’t. But colo clearly knocked him over to prevent him getting to the ball

  • 189 toonking // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    I agree with the ref myself, colo had knocked the player away from the ball far to roughly.

  • 190 Spud // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    That’s was a disgrace from the ref, I can see why it’s been given as a penalty, but no way is that a red plus the fact Elliot woulda had it before fletcher.

    I’m more annoyed by the fact gini should’ve been awarded a penalty and there was one Perez passed back and mitro was being pulled away from the ball.

    I can still see us scoring but I think Tiote has to come off, maybe see lascelles or Anita on

  • 191 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    Mbemba was already on the cover and has pace.

  • 193 LGFUAD21 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    Colo should’ve been tighter to fletcher in the first place.

  • 194 Toon Tang // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    It looked worse because colo was running across fletcher and he was running in line with the ball.

    Ref has dropped a big bollock in the derby yet again.

  • 195 welshgeordie9 // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    Cattermole on gini definite penalty.

  • 196 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    Wijnaldum needs to stay left instead of running in to the middle of the park, its the reason we have no width of the left

  • 197 toon kk // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    It was just a matter of time, get f..ing Tiote off before we’re down to nine men.

  • 198 Average_Contents // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    We see those every fcuking day of the week, the opposition player trying to shield the ball so the goalkeeper can collect. Fletcher went down like he’d been barged by a tank ffs!

    Goalscoring opportunity? What a load of shite, it was elliots all fcuking day!

    Disgusting.

  • 199 davis_toons // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

  • 200 chicousa // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    Blockhead move by Colo. Rob would have gotten to that ball first. Toon totally outplaying the Mackems and Colo gifts them a goal. That’s our captain!

  • 201 TheToonKing // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:59 PM

    gutted….. he doesn’t give the penalty to Gini …then they go on the other end and get the dodgy penalty on their probably only venture into our half….

    I have no idea how we’ll ull this out now…

  • 202 Toon Tang // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:59 PM

    I think sunderland having to make 2 subs already will come to our rescue in the end anyways. Thats something we should be working on.

  • 203 NUbilly // Oct 25, 2015 at 12:59 PM

    Shoulder to shoulder is not a foul but thats not what Colo did he barged into Fletcher to push him over its a penalty. Red card no as Fletcher wasn’t really in a scoring position.

  • 207 toon kk // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM

    Oh well six on the trot! Out done by Sunderland again.

  • 208 ochytoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM

    ilovetoon8788
    Have you played football? This sort of challenge happens in every game. It is not a foul when one player is stronger. If he uses his hands or throws an arm out then yes it’s a foul, but shoulder to shoulder contact is never, ever a foul. Elliot is also getting to the ball first so the red card is even more unjustified

  • 209 toonbrother // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:01 PM

    Colo in the team puts too much pressure of the others
    Its just too great a burden for the others to bear
    With Colo in the team we have to score2+ goals a game to secure a win
    Its just unsustainable
    Mclaren needs to wisen up and banish him to the u21s before he goes the way of Sherwood

    Probably a penalty – – Elliot would have got to it same time as Fletcher though. Clear error by permed hair.
    As long as it does not give them a confidence boost our ten could still get a result.
    great summer ploy extending Colos contract – for whatever hidden/dubious reasons – now coming back to haunt us.

    sorry, dont see how its a penalty if neither had the ball. anywhere else on the pitch thats not a foul, how is it a guarneteed pen? btw, 8 fouls for sunderland no card. How is that johnson celebration where he goes to the other side of the pitch not a YELLOW??? wtf

  • 215 NUbilly // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:03 PM

    Why is Colo still at this club. He’s dirt. Team doing well then he decided to curse our club in an instant. Sick of him.
    Sell him and buy a top centre back. He cost us 3 points stupidly.

  • 216 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:03 PM

    Tiote off, Lascelles on

  • 217 Average_Contents // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:03 PM

    Plus he never had control of the ball and it was only a shoulder barge trying to protect the ball.

    Joke ref.

  • 218 manxpie // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:03 PM

    shoulder to shoulder is one of the oldest rules in the book never a penalty and as for sending him off how was that a clear goal scoring chance ref has bottled it proper style ya could see it in his face!!

  • 219 bladeuser // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    Get your black anywhere glasses of it was a clear penalty maybe harsh with the red card and I say maybe I think 8out of 10 refs would have sent him off it was a pathetic challenge and again this player has cost us how many times does it have to happen before all of u realise he is now along with those a complete liability scum were there for the taken and he has consigned nufc to the history books
    ASHLEY OUT
    SMAC OUT
    Colo out

  • 220 ochytoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    Sunderland have committed twice as many fouls with no cards. Not surprising

  • 221 Jail for Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    Lascelles ?

  • 222 toonking // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    these are a bit like sliding tackles, you can go sliding into a player with some studs showing from one of you shoes and it’ll be fine and if missed just a warning but when a player decides to use both pairs of shoes it’ll be deemed a red card.

  • 223 Thump // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    Lascelles…?

  • 224 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    Quit bleating this shoulder to shoulder crap you heard in amateur leagues decades ago, this is modern PL football, he used excessive force, there’s a difference between using your body to ease somebody away and smashing in to them with your shoulder knocking them off their feet.

    Whether Colo read the situation to be more dangerous than it was or not, it was an act of desperation.

    I’d have bet on Mbemba to rescue the situation if Fletcher had got there.

  • 225 benjohnsen // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:04 PM

    It is very simple. If you keep doing those kind of errors you will not win football matches. How many have been sent off this year because of silly tackles like that. It is no coincidence, we have no speed at the back.

  • 226 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM

    yep – Lascelles. No Williamson on the bench

  • 227 JP...from The Rock // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM

  • 228 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM

    Jib
    That’s why we were talking before the game about Colo being a liability. That shows why I’ve been saying Colo isn’t strong enough; he barged because he’s not strong enough to lean. But also he loses his man. The penalty was conceded about 5 seconds before the barge. Do you get it now Jib?

  • 229 lesh // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM

    Hey ho, we’ll concede more but at least nobody else’ll be sent off!

    Ayoze is off the pace because he;’s doing the work of 2 men.

    Mitro is being either a lazy git or doesn’t have the stanima required.

    Well that’s it.

    Game over.

    Most disappointing derby yet, because of all the promise shown first-half, then we self-destruct at the hand of our supposed captain.

  • 290 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:26 PM

    We need to put this behind us, get clear of relegation, and whopp them at our place when they’re desperate for points.

  • 291 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:26 PM

    I still think we are very poor side. We don’t have balance. Sunderland just put so many men on our right. We only attack from there. We have no play from left side.

    Yes.that 6-2 win is just showing to be a one off. Our defence is so poor it’s unbelievable. Not epl standard.

    Disheartened by Colo handing it to them but encouraged by the fact we played a lot of good football before he intervened. There was only one team in it remember. Its 6 and its a bitter pill but this result doesn’t tell the story. But Colo can’t hide away from this. In control, virtually the only thing Colo had to deal with in 40 odd mins and he didn’t. And some. FACT.

    Still a MASSIVE UPGRADE on Colo though

  • 321 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:36 PM

    Nothing to do with wanting it more, our players have grafted this second-half, mostly. If you can’t see the contrast in the game between pre and post sending off, you need to find a different sport. There’s never been a clearer case of a turning point, it was the very definition.

    We were well on top, composed and steadily increasing the frequency of chances, until clown Colo did his part to wreck our chances.

  • 322 Our Toon // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:37 PM

    We’ve bossed the game right from the whistle. The only reason we are losing is because of Colo. I’ve actually been impressed with some of our play going forward. We got beat by a stupid decision from our captain!!

    The attacking part of our team can look good at times but it not a strong enough to ensure we’ll get those results and therefore we’re in vital need of a brand new back line.
    21 shots 8 on target 8 off but not a single goal and each week that damage continues to add up until it’s too late and we go down.

  • 388 benjohnsen // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:52 PM

    Sunderland had four chances and scored on three and had all margins on their side. I am not pissed, because today there were 10 men who tried and tried despite going down 1-0, 2-0 and 3-0. Newcastle outplayed Sunderland with 10 men and Sam Allardyce was rightly furious on the sideline watching his players being outrun. I still think Sunderland will go down and Newcastle will come between 10-15 place.

  • 407 pawl250 // Oct 25, 2015 at 1:58 PM

    Ffs people get a grip.

    We were the better team for the majority of the match and matched them pretty much with 10 men.

    Nothing went our way, the way the ball dropped, bounced up, the ref issuing now cards to Sunderland.

    It’s arguably the hardest to take as we were a better team. If it had not been for Colo getting sent off I would have gambled my house on us winning. We were dominating.

    If Any Sunderland fan walks home or celebrates thinking they are a great team they need a slap.

    In regards to Colo. I think it was a pen, probably more so Fletcher looking for it as he did not barge back making it a foul. Red card for me was a no mainly because I think Elliot would have got the ball therefore for me it’s not a goal scoring opportunity.

    We played well though. Second goal was abit of a fluke, and third was us caught on the break trying to do something. People need to calm down. We are not as bad as some make out on here.

    For those still contesting the shoulder barge.

    That one at the end on Defoe, they were running together and tussling all the way, shoulder to shoulder – fair.

    Mbemba on Fletcher at the beginning of the second half, again, running together Mbemba protected the ball.

    Colo, lost his man and came in from a few yards away at full force, using his momentum to knock Fletcher off his feet because he was desperate as he realised his man had got a yard on him so he couldn’t shield the ball, that’s the difference.

  • 414 ilovetoon8788 // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM

    So proud of the team today, we completely outclassed the scum. We were better in every department and didn’t deserve to be on the end of this score line. Coloccini let us down but hopefully this will let us see a new partnership with either Dummett or Lascelles. Sunderland fans are happy but looking at that performance I believe they should be extremely worried as they look like they’re going to end up relegated whereas we looked very good. Wijnaldum and Mbemba are cracking players.

  • 422 sing in the corner // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:01 PM

    I hope people don’t turn on the team completely. I saw a team that deserved a lot of credit before the captain unnecessarily cocked it up. It was slightly marginal on both counts, I suppose you could say. But the fact is he’s still here cos he’s experienced, some say. But the bottom line is he didn’t need to give the ref a decision to make anyway. To say we were outclassed today is so far off the mark I don’t know what to say to those who think that. Sunderland were never in it in the 1st half. They were struggling badly. We were the architects of our own downfall.though. Or Colo was.

    Wanted it more?

    Remind me how much possession, or chances they had in the first half?

    The only thing they wanted up until the 40th minute was the game to end at that point.

    Sunderland were awful today. If they play like that (despite it being 3-0) every week they will be relegated.

    Probably the first time I can say since the 5-1 thumping our team dominated a Tyne/Wear derby match. They have always turned up on the day and we look poor.

    Today we looked brilliant, even at times with 10 men. Only thing we didn’t do was score which I think would have come had we had 11 men on pitch. As I said we could have had 2 with 10 on the pitch.

  • 429 loonie-toon // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:03 PM

  • 430 NYMAG // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:03 PM

    I’m livid, Colo lost his head but it was never a red card. Up until then we completely dominated them. We have to take one of those chances.

    Anyone watching that game could see how much better we are than them. We’ll stay up because there are 4or 5 teams worse than us.

    Mclaren must realise keeping colo and making him captain was a mistake. Everyone knows we should have brought in another top 6f4+ unit centre half.

  • 431 Fostino // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:03 PM

    Deserved red. This should be it for colo. I think it’s a good time to get a new captain in. Dummett should be the c.b. beside mbemba. Lascalles looks pants to be honest. I think a l.b. and c.b. is a priority in January. Thauvin looks a carbon copy of cabella…beggars belief why we signed him

  • 432 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:03 PM

    @ourtoon do you realise that for the ref to give a penalty – they must be 100% sure that the defender stopped a CLEAR goal scoring opportunity

    In this case Elliot was 100% going to gather the ball so this could never be the case

  • 433 Thump // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:04 PM

    @Blackley: I’m more confused why Mbemba drifted off. I’m especially confused that Colo thought a barge was appropriate rather than just leaning in – surely he could see that Elliot was going to win out.

    We played well, though – even with 10 men. Sunderland just wanted it more (unsurprisingly).

  • 434 Blackley and Brownlie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:04 PM

    Colo knows he’s weak and can’t compete against the league’s numerous big centre forwards. That’s why he barged. He’s not string enough to out muscle.

    You should understand what is shoulder to shoulder. Go watch the analysis of the colo foul. Clear as day light to me. Colo fouled Fletcher as he realised he can’t match Fletcher speed and he thought elliot might not get it. It was an error by him.

    He ran and shoved Fletcher out of the way. Penalty is right call. And I also believe the ex-eplfootballers pundits who agree it was a penalty over the likes of you.

  • 444 benjohnsen // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:09 PM

    Newcastle biggest challenge is definitely centre back position and it is easy to see why.

    Coloccini is way over the top, lost speed and does costly mistake.

    Steven Taylor, robust when he can play over time, which is hardly ever (I mean ever) and like Coloccini does silly mistakes getting himself sent off.

    Mike Williamson – over the top and is simply not good enough anymore.

    Paul Dummet – can be an alternative with Mbemba, however, not a great touch on the ball, limited ability with his right foot.

    Jamal Lascelles – with time might turn ok, however, we do not have time unless we want to play Championship football.

    We can get rid of Coloccini, Williamson and Taylor while we simultaneously sign a top center back and reduce the wage bill. It’s better to have one player that can play, that three that do not.

    People are over exaggerating, what I saw from that game was a team with a philosophy, a team capable of having possession and a team that is dangerous on the break. We looked great, albeit vs the scum. People thinking this is doom and gloom are delusional, yeah it’s 3-0, but which team deserved the victory? Which team had all the luck going there way? This game was unbelievable for it to end as a 3-0 loss. If we can play like this every game, then I’m not worried.

    I said this would be colos test and it was a fail, he has gifted toonbotherer by fouling instead of being fouled. But tbf it wasn’t a red, and it should never have happened had the ref awarded us the clear pen. Add cattermole staying on the pitch and it was all literally on the cards.

Don’t know if his head is elsewhere due to personal reasons but it’s certainly not up to it for Newcastle. If McLaren has any leadership skills he needs to fix the back four and keep Colo out until he can be released in January. Thanks but goodbye.

    If you look at the replays and watch it back live, fletcher is always getting to the ball before Elliot, Colo used his shoulder excessively. It’s a nailed on pen and under the rules of the game a red as well. You have to ask as well what Elliott was doing, slow coming for the ball and no anticipation whatsoever!!

    A shoulder to shoulder is 2 players competing for the ball, Colo used his shoulder but fletcher was clever and he knew what the idiot Colo would do.

Aside from that we dominated even with 10 men and on another day we could have hammered them. If sunderland keep playing like that they will go down, and if we keep playing like that (with a decent ref) we’ll be fine.

    Looking forward to seeing Lascelles alongside Mbemba in defence, bring on stoke.

Football was meant as a source of entertainment, I would rather watch us play intense, easy on the eye football and lose then get a lucky 3-0 win playing crap, because guess what? Luck runs out, and eventually playing good football will get you points. Sunderland to go down, us to stay up.

  • 467 Lilongwe Geordie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:20 PM

    Tough to take today. We collapsed in the latter stages but we were pushing for a goal. Game changed with the red card, for me it was hugely debatable. As a defender, I don’t see that as a foul, I see it as a fair shoulder to shoulder, and Colo was stronger.

    We were the better team before and for large parts after. I’d query McClarens changes, but struggle to pick fault with too mNy players.

    well done big lad. Respect!

  • 476 Lilongwe Geordie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:24 PM

    If it is a foul, it is a red card. I wholeheartedly disagree that it is a foul.

    Either way, there were 4 players who could have prevented the ball from Defoe,but they all backed off and gave him space.

    There are people who should take far more blame then Colo for the incident.

    Mitrovic was crap today i thought, never really got involved.

  • 478 manxpie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:25 PM

    even the commentator on the man u game is talkin about how you’ll never see that decision every game

  • 479 John Tudor // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:26 PM

    obstruction

  • 480 firebug666 // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:27 PM

    Quite simply, the ref had his winner picked out, How many times did he give Cattermole a talking too for some of his challenges but never reached for a card against the makems.

    Denied us a clear pen when Wijnaldum was fould, and Cattermole should have been off at that point, but a dubious pen at the other end and he had no hesitation in awarding it and sending the Clown off.

    Shocking Ref IMO

    we still need a better centre back than mr unreliable colocrappy

    Bri,
    Are you drunk, blind or perhaps never watched the game.

  • 483 davetoon // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:28 PM

    @Lilongwe that is incorrect – a foul in the box is a penalty BUT that foul must be denying a CLEAR goal scoring opportunity to get a red. Hence why so many fouls in the box these days are given yellows.

  • 484 Lilongwe Geordie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:28 PM

    Couldn’t pick a ‘bad’ performer today. Nobody excelled for us, but none were terrible.

  • 485 sweendog // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:30 PM

    gutted about the result.
    positives are the team looked good up until the sending off, and still looked good for 10 men after.
    If we play like that every week we’ll be mid table.
    negatives collo, and thauvin. suppose thauvin is rusty but as a winger he is lacking.
    next game and play the same with no silly mistakes and we’ll do well.

    Go on you for the retraction of they wanted it more.

  • 487 Hail Wor Ashley // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:32 PM

    Fletcher would never do that to Colo in that scenario though would he? He was entirely focused on reaching the ball before the keeper, which I have to say I think he would have got a toe to knock it past as Elliot is a slouch and they seemed to be meeting it at roughly the same time. Fletcher was chasing the ball, Colo realised he was a yard behind due to his lack of pace and decided to run in to Fletcher full force and take him out, there was never a shoulder to shoulder encounter, one was chasing the ball, the other only had eyes for the man as he knew he’d been done for pace and lost the ideal position of being between GK and attacker. An act of desperation, poor judgement of the scenario, poorer judgement of which action to take.

    All sorts could’ve happened if he didn’t do that, Fletcher leave a foot in – disallowed goal.

    Mbemba on the recovery clears the ball off the line.

    Colo use a little less force and just knock Fletcher off balance instead of the blatant intention to knock him off his feet might have sufficed.

    Heck, Elliot might have got there first regardless, but we’ll never know, because Colo did a blatant foul and the ref deemed Fletcher to be the favourite to get there first in a tight race, thus a goalscoring opportunity.

  • 488 sweendog // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:32 PM

    to everyone discussing the red card, what about cattermole on wijnaldum, surely a penalty.

  • 489 John Tudor // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:32 PM

    keep colo out no silly mistakes

  • 490 sing in the corner // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:33 PM

    Step up Mbemba, you’re in charge of the back 4 now. And who knows, hopefully this next few games will be the making of Lascelles. I hope this doesn’t mean a promotion for Willo though, That would be SM playing what he probably sees as a safe bet.

  • 491 manxpie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:33 PM

    thauvin for there 3rd was shocking he was the person who lost it and the fittest player left on the pitch and then gave up chasing back on the half way line i regret saying he was looking good lol

  • 492 Lilongwe Geordie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:33 PM

    Dave,
    That was a goalscoring opportunity. He didn’t have control, but a definite opportunity for a shot, and subsequently a goal.

  • 493 Bri // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:34 PM

    Just my opinion Jail

  • 494 nut meg // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:34 PM

    It’s always been known as a shoulder charge,that’s what Collo done, a shoulder charge…have they changed the rules? If not then it wasn’t a foul.

  • 495 Roosta // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:34 PM

    We looked really good for 44 mins then, you know what, but I mentioned before if you concede 3 goals from 3 shots on goal weather u have ten or not, there is still a massive problem, Mbabu straight in at left back Dummett n mbemba centre half’s, Aarons straight in the team, Tiote shipped back to the ivory coast, super loon that he is. Thauvin sent to boot camp for a toughening up, he’s a white flag on a white background type of fella, yuk.

    None of the above I’ve mentioned will happen next week but it’s my opinion.

  • 496 lochinvar // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:35 PM

    Anagram of Colo is Loco
    Says it all really

  • 497 Tsunki // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:37 PM

    Agreed Elliot chickened out of diving for the ball, forcing Colos hand a bit. If they were both barging for the byline, the ref wouldn’t have been bothered. But Colo should have been wiser, and gone to ground when Fletcher started pushing back. Idiot. We could still have won from one down with eleven on the pitch.

  • 498 manxpie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    lilo it certainly wasn’t a clear goal scoring opportunity especially from where the ref was
    lacelles did exactly the same on defoe on the touchline not a foul why is that then if its in the rules?

  • 499 toonking // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    This season could be the most difficult season yet for those battling relegation, looking at the table itself you’ve got ourselves, scums, villa, norwich and bornmoth after that it’s chelsea, stoke watford and liverpool. Watford should be joining up but already 17th place needs 2 wins+1 draw, the other 3 i’d say are certain to suvive.

  • 500 Lilongwe Geordie // Oct 25, 2015 at 2:47 PM

    Manx,
    I don’t think either were a foul. As I stated, but if the ref thinks what Colo did was a foul, it is a red.

    I don’t think a shoulder is a red. Ever. People who like to bash Colo are jumping on a bandwagon without substance.

    For me, not a foul, just stronger and prior to thathe had been comfortable against their attack
