Discipline Is What Newcastle Need On Monday

In the last three games Newcastle have been missing one thing that previously was in good supply in the Newcastle side.

Yohan Cabaye – returns to the side on Monday

And that is discipline, which was sadly missing against West Brom on Wednesday night,  as Newcastle gave away three sloppy goals and lost the game 3-2.

And it even looked like Newcastle would go on and win the game on Wednesday night, after coming from behind twice.

Demba  Ba scored his second goal of the game on 81 minutes,  to level the scores at 2-2,  in front of over 51,000 fans at St. James’ Park.

And  since Newcastle had been pressing all of the second half, it looked like Newcastle could go on and get the third winning goal – probably from Demba Ba again.

But what happened?

Newcastle lost their concentration and conceded a terrible  third goal, and basically handed West Brom a terrific victory for them, and once again a team below Newcastle got something out of the game with the Magpies.

Alan Pardew seems well aware that he needs to get more discipline back into their game:

“I don’t think confidence is a factor just yet,” “I think the discipline of the team needs to get back to where it was.”

“We just got a little bit desperate for the win, and I think that showed in some of our play.”

“We were over-committing players in dangerous situations, and they turned one of our opportunities into a goal, and again for a winning goal.”

“We’ve got to be more controlled in attack.”  “I’m sure that’s tweaking rather than anything major.”

We have to hope the defense is solid again with  Mike Williamson hopefully  back in the side in place of James Perch, and that Frenchman Yohan Cabaye can stamp his authority on the game and finally that the great Demba  Ba can keep scoring those fantastic goals for us.

Howay The Lads!!

    To read a book on a computer?

    Jesus! Do you believe we french are barbarians enough to do that?!

    Need to have it in my hands. To touch it. To smell the paper.
    Well, the old way!

    There’s some power in Books GG, don’t let the modern technolgy kill that.

    This is why i told tou to warn me if it’s published. Was interested, first cause i like this kind of literature, second cause of the Pascal’s quote about the void.

    Readed some text of oriental philosophy about that, this sublect is fascinating.

    I am. And it also concern Ba. But when you got no money for recruitment, you got to take some risk.

    In fact, this is funny, but this quote of Pascal is about the heart of the studies made by the religious and philosophycal school Ben arfa belong.
