Penalty Misery For Magpies Last Night


Holland are ranked fourth in the latest FIFA rankings and Northern Ireland are ranked 100th.

Robin van Perise after scoring last night
Note that’s Newcastle target  Ibrahim Affelay in the picture

So we suppose it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Holland thrashed  Northern Ireland 6-0 and they were 4-0 up at half time.

Shane Ferguson started the game for Northern  Ireland and the Dutch were already two goals up in the 27th minutes when Shane Ferguson gave away a penalty when he was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area.

Robin van Persie scored from the spot and the Dutch ended up thrashing the visitors at the sold-out Amsterdam ArenA.

That was Shane’s third cap and he seems to have almost become a regular under new manager Michael O’Neill, who admitted his inexperienced side were no match for the country who were only beaten in extra time in the final of the World Cup in South Africa two years ago.

And Newcastle target Ibrahim Afellay played for Holland in the game, and he is shown congratulating van Persie in the picture above.

Here’s the goals from that game, although it doesn’t show Shane’s hand ball:

Senegal beat Liberia 3-1 in Dekar, but they had to come form behind after only two minutes and then Newcastle super-striker and Senegal captain Papiss Cisse missed a penalty after just 10 minutes.

But then the Senegal side – Demba Ba is not in the squad for these games – came back and equalized through Brahmani Balde in the 32nd minute, before Dame N’Doye and Sadio Mane added goals late in the game, to give Senegal a much needed win in their first qualifying game for the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

The World Cup qualifying for African teams has them split into 10 groups, and the group winners qualify for the next stage, and there will be five teams that finally make it to the World Cup finals in two years time.

Here’s the highlights of that game plus Cisse’s miss, and the Liberia goalkeeper had the cheek to even save his follow-up shot, after he had parried the penalty.

    United are being linked with Rennes winger
    Yacine Brahimi. The 22-year-old has been
    watched by Alan Pardew on a number of
    occasions and The People claims the
    Newcastle boss hopes to snap him up this
    summer.

    Danny Guthrie is being linked with a move
    to West Bromwich Albion. The 25-year-old
    is out of contract at Newcastle and won’t
    be offered a new deal with the club after
    talks broke down.

    So Guthrie and Mulumbu could be swapping clubs then lol… a think its abit silly if Guthrie goes to West Brom, he’d sign and then the new manager might come in and not quite fancie him and he’d be buggered but if he goes to a club where he can actually speak to the manager and get to know his plans then he will be a key cog in the midfield

    Hoilett is an idiot for going to the German League, may have champs league football but when they get knocked out he is still playing in average league.

    Brahimi would be excellent but wouldnt bet my house on that one!

    I have a question. Why are we all talking about De Jong as Ba’s replacement when theres Sturridge. Theres no mention of him in any thread. Theres a rumor that Roman will look at offloading him this window.

    Sure Mancini may bid to take him to city but Why cant we go after him. I know he wont be cheap but i think he will make a good pairing with Cisse. Get De Jong as well since Best and Lover will be leaving

    We have PL, FA Cup, Europa and Carling cup to compete in. These players will get lots of game and Cisse will be gone in Jan for ACN.

    We have a buy cheap player and sell for a huge profit policy but didnt we get quality and a good return for the second half of the season when MA forked out 9m for Cisse? .

    I dont mind Ba leaving us this window. If you are a striker. It doesnt matter where you play up front, you should be able to score. Ba had a barren run for 16+ matches, he no longer cuts it as a go to guy. Cisse is better. Good on both feet. Thing i like about Cisse is that he doesnt stop the ball and shoots. He shoots a passed ball straight at goal. Thats what strikers should be doing imo.

    Sturridge is over rated…..when chelsea had a manager who had a clue he didnt get a game.

    He didn’t track back and follow plans…and was constantly in the huff because he couldn’t play through the middle.

    I liked him at bolton but he has got far to big for his boots…thinks he is better than he is.

    And the above comment about the german league…..I like the league, think it is very competitive and has a lot of talented players…..I would say second best league after premiership.

    True davytoon but as you just said players normally move from ze german league to ours.

    Sturridge would be way too expensive me thinks.

    As much as I rate Nathan Clyn, it would be a kick in the balls for Tav but then you could say it would be healthy competition for him.

    I don’t think we have anything like a “buy cheap player and sell for a huge profit policy” at all, it’s saying things like this that get the neggers banging their stupid misinformed drums.

    There has never been a sell on for a huge profit ever mentioned as in a club policy, that was only ever brought up by numpties that tried reading between the lines and got run over by a train.

    The policy as I see it is simple make sensibly priced young purchases that have future value as in they will profit the club if and when they move on as opposed to the MO type signings where we pay stupid money to an aging damaged player that does nothing but drain the clubs resources.

    And being perfectly honest I know which one I prefer, and that does not involve the MO type players.

    the reason our policy is buy young and cheap is not for a sell on value….it is just for good value up front.

    If an exceptional talent is available we have spent money…cisse.

    But I would rather us spend 2/3 million on a player we have scouted well then buy a big name who is just as good but cost 15/20 million.

    At the end of the day even if ashley puts loads of his own money into transfers we stll couldnt compete with the likes of city and chelsea so not only would it be expensive it would be utterly pointless.

    Our transfer policy is basically the same transfer policy that is used by a lot of top European clubs Dortmund, Lyon, Valencia, Porto, Ajax which is to actually do some scouting n go find top talent who are cheap n then sold on for huge money, so for those who say this policy can’t work it does n it’s a proven transfer policy

    Ok I’ll bite, this has to be one of the most moronic posts in recent times, I take it you are a little pi**ed at the moment or are you just angry at the world cost your mother sent you to bed as she is entertaining one of your many dads friends.

    In order to line his pockets he has to care about his investment i.e. the club, so your claim that he does not care about the club, but cares about lining his pockets is an oxymoron you f***ng moron.

    @davy

    exactly….we dont but with the plan to sell….we buy knowing that if a club does make an offer we will get a lot more back than we paid.

    There seems no policy to let x amount of players go a year…its more if the right offer is made the they will sell.

    I do not post a lot as in not being a prolific poster although I do have a tendency to post in response to negative post like robinio’s.

    Generally I start by asking them to explain the holes in their posts but as they were so abrasive in their post I decided to dispense with polite chat and point out just how f***ing moronic their post was.

    I say they instead of him or her as their post was so mackem-esk there is the possibility of them being an it.

    @davy

    what club doesnt sell though….thats my response usually to people co complain….man utd sold ronaldo, barcelona sold ronaldinho, arsenal sold fabregas, nasri, anelka, tottenham sol carrick and berbatov

    the fact is when you get a big offer (and especially if the player wants to leave) you have to weigh up what is more valuable to your club…..for us what is better….is carroll better than 35million? not at all.
