Former Striker Critical Of Newcastle Players

Mick Quinn was not too happy with three Newcastle players in yesterday 1-0 loss at Blackburn Rovers and he has called out Mo Diame, Yoan Gouffran and Jack Colback as having very poor games.

And the second half was just not good enough after Newcastle should have had the game locked up at half time but we missed our chances – and in the end paid the price with our 5th defeat in the last 9 games.

That’s one reason Rafa wants to bring in another striker this month with Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson thought to be the number one target.

    Fat Mick says “I had more influence in the game sitting on my Arse on the couch”
    He looks like he spends lots of time doing that.
    He should try radio commentary he looks as though he would comfortably fit the other Fat Mick’s shoes

    thought all three played well actually (aside from colback obviously largely at fault for the goal). does he not remember the wonderful diame effort in the first half, or the tireless chances created by gouffran?

    surely by his reasoning, gayle also must have played badly as he didn’t score either of the two clear opportunities. (he played ok by the way)

    Colback did influence the game by giving away the free kick with a daft challenge!!

    Going to home games and watching most of the others on TV I can predict every time when Colback will foul before he does it.
    It’s some form of compulsion that he simply cannot control.
    Happier when he’s not playing.

    Colback is a grafter, I will give him that. But he has no imagination with the ball, and is a liability with his challenges around the edge of the area. Did he get booked, does anyone remember?
    I thought Gouffran was OK, but deliveries from both flanks were really poor. Anita failed to beat the first man numerous times, and Dummett gave us an example of his special aimless balls to noone from deep.
    Diame worked hard, not much else however

    Come on lads, get your heads out of the sand, when are we going to accept possession doesn’t win games but goals. We’ve lost to team in 22nd place in the championship twice and failed to beat a mediocre Premier league team, as any serious promotion contenders should be able to do. The rose tinted glasses your all wearing are not warranted, this team has a long way to go yet before it’s the finished article, but it’s better than last seasons team any day of the week.
