Match Report – Newcastle Pathetic Again – Lose 5-1 At Palace


Newcastle once again put in another woeful and pathetic performance this time at Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace and after going ahead with a good goal from Papiss Cisse through a nice glancing header from a good Daryl Janmaat cross after 10 minutes Palace scored five unanswered goals and simply dominated the game.

It wasn’t unlike last week when Newcastle were second best in every department to Leicester City and while the players have to take the responsibility for another gutless and almost hopeless display – it does put Steve McClaren under enormous pressure and whether this job is just too much for him.

Last week was two steps back and this week was another two steps back – maybe three – so we are an awful lot of steps backward so far this season.

Sunderland won 2-0 against Stoke – Bournemouth drew 3-3 with Everton so they both go above Newcastle in the league and we are second bottom – Aston Villa lost 3-2 at home to Watford.

Steve McClaren – this afternoon – another debacle

And the poor Newcastle fans at the game after the fourth goal went in after 47 minutes  started to sing “”We’re **** and we’re sick of it”

Hint – the **** rhymes with it.

There ‘s going to be even more heated criticism of the Newcastle players after this woeful defensive display and we just don’t seem to have a decent enough good defenders to stop the goals flowing in.

Paul Dummett had another difficult game against Saha and he looked poor.

That’s 30 goals we have conceded in 14 league games this season, the worst in the Premier League  and it was a pitiful rearguard action today from the Magpies  and we have Liverpool and Tottenham up next.

This is how we saw the game – and we have some more comments at the end.

After 10 minutes Newcastle went ahead after withstanding some heavy early pressure and it was a good run by Daryl Janmaat as he moved up the right wing then moved inside and put over a lovely cross that Papiss Cisse headed home for his second goal of the season and just the start Newcastle needed.

But Newcastle’s defense was again suspect and just four minutes later Crystal Palace were level as a shot by James McArthur that was deflected off Paul Dummett into the back of the net – it was an unlucky goal for the Magpies to concede – but it was 1-1.

Palace went ahead just 3 minutes later when it was Bolasie who scored all too easily in what was comical defending by Newcastle as a number of our players should have cleared the ball as it came across the box.

Crystal Palace were coming at Newcastle now and it seemed that Pardew wanted Zaha to keep taking on Dummett down the right wing and that was the concentration of the attack.

After 41 minutes palace went further ahead and it was former Sunderland striker Connor Wickham who broke down the left wing and skipped past Chancel Mbemba before pulling the ball back to Zaha who scored as the ball looped into the back of the net.

Half time came and Newcastle had put in another dreadful defensive performance and we looked all over the place and a good question is what were Steve McClaren and the staff doing in the five days of coaching last week.

Newcastle’s defense is simply not good enough for the Premier league and we will soon become relegation favorites with these performances.

McClaren made a strange change indeed at half time bringing on Jamaal Lascelles for Perez?

Two minutes into the second half and Palace went even further ahead as a Cabaye free-kick was flighted nicely into the box and Damien Delaney headed the ball to Bolasie who put the ball home so easily for his second goal and it was 4-1.

Where was the Newcastle defense?

Newcastle fans then started to sing “We’re **** and we’re sick of it” and you couldn’t blame them – it was so difficult to watch an absolutely pathetic Newcastle side.

Crystal Palace continued to attack Newcastle and it was simply no contest as Alan Pardew’s side were making mincemeat of Newcastle – after last week’s performance this was very hard to take.

After 65 minutes Ward broke through and not one player picked him up and his shot screamed only inches over the cross-bar.

After 70 minutes McClaren made two changes as Yoan Gouffran replaced Georginio Wijnaldum and Siem de Jong replaced Jack Colback.

A Yohan Cabaye cross saw Connor Wickham head the ball wide.

And then in stoppage time it was James McArther  who got his second goal as they simply ripped apart the Newcastle defense once again.

Palace had done that a few times in the second half after the fourth goal went in  – but they missed some chances,

So even at 5-1 the scoreline could have been a lot worse but they simply controlled the game for much of the second half  – and we quite happy with all 3 points.

That was Crystal Palace’s biggest win of the season as they tore this poor Newcastle United side apart and we have to become favorites for relegation

This is Newcastle’s eighth defeat in the first 14 games for Newcastle and we have only have 10 points – the worst start in our history and equal to the start back in 1898 – but we won the 15th game that season 3-0.

We play Liverpool at home next week on our 15th game.

The Chronicle keeps reporting that Steve McClaren is here for the long term but if he keeps losing Mike Ashley is not going to keep him in charge and see Newcastle relegated again – especially when some good managers are currently available.

It’s difficult to know where Newcastle go from here.

A pathetic performance served up last Saturday at home followed by another gutless performance – but the defense has looked so bad – it’s difficult to know how we can build anything when we can let a goal at any time.

That’s now 30 goals conceded in 14 league games and we have known for three seasons our defense has been poor.

We need at least a good center-back and a good left back brought in during the January transfer window but with Liverpool and Tottenham next up we could even be rock bottom by the turn of the year.

That’s if our last two performances are anything to go by.

And there have to be big questions marks over Steve McClaren’s head after a second successive disastrous display when our defense was all over the shop.

We never thought McClaren was a good appointment but were willing to give him a chance and hope he could bring success to the club.

    I’d be surprised if he wanted to stay. That would rebound on Charmless too. I think they’ve finally run out of excuses.

    Complete and utter shambles.

    NUFC have a win record that is only matched by its Manager – both great at loosing in a league that demands wins. Shambolic to say the least.

    Can’t bring myself to vote for man of the match.

    So what we need is 6 or 7 serious good experienced players, a brilliant new manager – and we might escape the drop.

    90+ minutes of my life I’ll never get fcuking back.

    Shoddy, clueless and downright disgraceful.

    I wonder how long it’ll be before someone mentions “see, I’ve said it for AGES,the king is brill” “should never of hounded him out” “blah blah” “blah” “more blah”

    We know it wasn’t his fault but he protected the man’s who’s fault it is and seemed to derive pleasure from it the smarmy cnut.

    Anyway. I wonder what shteve is gonna say now? That’s 8 goals conceded in our last two. Funnily enough that’s the King’s territory. How fcuking ironic.

    In fact it was serious when Charmless appointed.MClaren

    nufccursed please explain the better players part or the fact it was all pardews fault when he was here and he needed to go to sort out the problems

    wat problems have been solved?
    the problems have always been higher up especially the relationship with recruitment and the manager which has been proved season after season and again now
    we needed defenders every stat showed we needed better defenders!
    we waste 13 mill on an out of form winger!
    nothing to do with the manager by the way

    you nufccursed are exactly ashleys dream!

    Ed would you please stop running the best player – it is just senseless and adding insult to injury and anyway who the hell cares.

    I am tired of seeing our defenders turning their backs – if it is not Colo it is Dummy – if he had stood and faced the ball it would have hit him direct and would not have been deflected. They are a pair of TARTS – at least Steven Taylor attacks the ball full on.

    It is now time to say enough is enough as far as I am concerned – I have said it many times before but this time I mean it.

    Maclaren is not the man for the job even if he was given 200 million to buy whoever he wanted.

    The problem however is not solely down to Maclaren as he’s just another puppet behind the punch and judy curtain…the problem is carr and the fat controller.

    Ashley needs to sack Maclaren and all his mates and bring in high quality footballing people (that means much higher quality than Dennis Wise) and start again.

    If he does it now we might even stay up…if he sticks with what he\s doing now there’s only one place we’re going and that’s down to League 1

    The manager must do the honourable thing and go – but I can not think of a manager who has had the courage to say ” I have lost the respect of the players and therefore I am resigning with immediate effect ”

    The players will remain because they can not be sacked due to their contracts – only in football !

    We might have the best fans and a great stadium but that’s it.

    Don’t worry guys McClaren can’t handle the pressure compare to Pardew and Carver.

    In fact I wouldn’t be to surprise if he left next week.

    no manager in there right mind would touch the job, said last week there relegated
