Jamaal Lascelles Not Happy With Conceding Late Goal

Benitez revealed there was some disagreement in the dressing room between goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and captain Jamaal Lascelles – two strong voices in the Newcastle dressing room.

You can see in the photo below that Lascelles is devastated with the late goal, and there were words at the time between the players after the goal was conceded.

Newcastle had a fair shout that Willy Boly had fouled Dubravka going for the ball, but there was no call from referee Graham Scott of Oxfordshire.

And we had dropped 2 points in the final seconds of the game.

It was all very hard to take.

Newcastle concede costly late equalizer last night

Rafa explained there was some (heated) discussion of the equalizer in the dressing room:

“The disappointment is clear for everyone,”

“Martin was talking about more protection, Jamaal was saying Martin could deal with the cross in another way. It was another bad way to concede.”

“You have to be really disappointed with the way we conceded in both games against this team,”

“It was maybe a foul before too. You can say many things like the 94 minutes, but it will not change what happened.”

“Like the first game, we couldn’t say too much and it didn’t change what happened.”

“The first game we had a player with a broken nose, we conceded in the last minute and we should have had a penalty and there should have been a red card, but nobody said anything.”

“The situation is to protect the goalkeeper, so you’re supposed to protect the keeper. We have been here for years, and it’s very difficult to explain that.”

“I’m disappointed, and I was happy with the performance of the team,”

“I’m happy with a lot of things and happy with the way we played. “

“We played against a good team, we have one more point and it’s a pity.”

“I knew we could cope quite well. “The team, as a team, put in the effort. They have some players with the quality and it was a good display.”

“We go to Spain now, try to train well and be together for the new players for the new team mates,”

    I used my eyes Catchy we deserved at least a point from the game last night, a dubious goal cost us 3 points, we should have had a free kick on Almiron before the cross came in yet all you can do is whinge about Rafa making a sub which all managers do in injury time to run down the clock

    Sorry for the repost hguys but I put a bit of thought into so I feel the need to post it in the current thread… This really is the blogs rush hour!!!

    Why are folk engaging with catchy, I’m all for free speech, but his speeches aren’t free… They are ‘COSTING’ me my happiness.

    Yes last night was ultimately disappointing, but we contained well, we look like we have a stellar player on our hands with Miggy and broke well. We have a 21 year central midfielder taking the world by storm, we don’t get many thumpings with an average squad and we can steal points from anyone with a good work ethos and team camaraderie and in my opinion look like the best of the rest from the teams down the bottom.

    As much as the result was disappointing I’m pleased with the teams play is evolving to become more threatening with the added attacking threat in Almiron and Barecca.

    Shit result but the sides future looks positive, I really do expect a few more poor performances before the end of the season but that’s where we are under Ashley.

    Well done Rafa and the lads, in the grand scheme of things it’s a good point to get, we have no divine right to beat anybody on the road, and to give the game we did last night to a solid side at home gives me reason to stay positive for the road ahead!

    Again Catchy what about the Man City game, is Rafa always lucky, was he lucky in the 3:0 win over Cardiff, you don’t come on after wins as all you want is a stick to beat him with, you can’t bring yourself to give him any credit as you hate him that much

    Four minutes (5, rather) is usually allocated when there’s been a lengthy stop, plus delay tactics etc. I didn’t see this at all last night.

    The foul on Almiron should’ve been given.

    Traore fluffed his cross a bit, turned out to be brilliant. Dubravka made a terrible mistake I’m sure he’ll never repeat.

    Destiny, man.

    Four certain points dropped this year. Hope they don’t come back to bite us.

    On a good note, won 40+ big ones. Maybe others saw my relevant betting post before the game, took a punt and won too.

    When the wolves goal went in last night too, my first thought was a foul on the keeper, I still do contrary to what the ‘experts’ say, firstly he has his arms around him which impacts how high the keeper can jump. The keeper should be getting at least 2 feet above a player attacking a header with extended arms, you couldn’t slip a fiver under Dubs feet when he challenged, he barely got off the ground, how is it not seen as a foul. Secondly with Boly’s arms in front of Dubs then his view is restricted too. I’m inclined to blame the back 3 more than Dubs as they didn’t give him the protection… Boly bulldozed his way through the 3 of them and when Lascelles spotted the danger late he went in front of the keeper instead of getting physical with Boly… He had a free run at Dubs.

    And again to clarify, I’m not blaming anyone on that, it’s the unfortunate side of the cut and thrust of PL football. Rather than slate our players I’d genuinely say it was well done on Boly’s part to spot the threat and attack it. Sometimes even when you feel you’ve been wronged you need to give credit where it’s due, we can’t change it and it’s still a valuable point on the road!

    I meant to say when the goal went in and our players demonstrated I knew it wasn’t getting wiped because the ref let a fair bit of physicality go last night on both sides, I stated last night that I think he had a good game up until the final few moments.

    Kluivert with his ‘there is nothing to discuss from the first half’ bullshit at halftime was way off the mark, we were solid and frustrated wolves first half but when you only analyse the attacking element when there is far more to the game then you don’t deserve to be a pundit.

    cyprus @4 – I agree I didn’t see where the 4 minutes came from in the first place but as Rafa says we can’t change it now. Let’s hope Dubravka and Lascelles are not not sharing a room on the Spanish trip – it could be very quiet 🙂

    Although, to be fair, should Lascelles open the subject, dubravka may point to a couple past errors of Lascelles 😉

    I disagreed with Lascelles action, although I too blame dubravka. Do that in private. Always.

    You’ll get your wish at the end of the season when Rafa goes, you’ll make out the football is better for a bit giving it I told you so, then reality will bite and the U25’s with no PL experience that the new manager has had bought for him flounder you’ll disappear, because after all that’s what you do.

    We all see things differently, one thing we can’t forget is the great saves he made throughout the game, one low shot in particular looked the trickiest of all but he took it and held it so well. When you are under sustained pressure like this you more than likely end up conceding, tiredness, concentration levels etc all have an impact.

    We win lose and draw as a team as Hayden said in his interview so hopefully they work on aerial bombardments when in the warm weather training camp… The discipline for that is easily coached into a side, we have been solid with aerial bombardments all season.

    We looked weak on the left side of defence having no natural left footer. I like Clark, he also pops up with important goals so if we play 3 at the back i’d like to see him deployed on the left of the 3 for balance, every left foot strike last night from Lejeune went either into the middle of the pitch to a wolves player or row z to the sidelines, I don’t know if Lejeune completed a pass with his left foot last night. This was the weakness last night and I spotted it early doors so you can guarantee that NES seen this as the most profitable area of the pitch. Also with no pacy centre halves on the pitch I think we played our back line very high up.

    Gutted but.
    Before the game we would have been happy with a point.
    Wolves would have been disappointed with a point.
    I do have a bug in my bonnet about very late substitutes for (tactical reasons).
    What is the point.time is added on.
    And the player cannot be happy to come on for a few minutes.

    I think with catchy, his condition is a bit like Keys, he has an obsessive hate fixation whch is very unhealthy and unbalanced. If only he could train it on a worthy target, ie Ashley. You can imagine catchy as one of those extremist nut jobs wringing his hands and rocking back and forth in a corner. Very creepy and disturbed bigoted, hate the world individual shouting at himself in his favourite mirror.

    From a dodgy stream it seemed as if we were well over 94 minutes and then some. Also looked like Dubravka got taken out but Lascelles was going on at him so maybe not. No team breaks your heart like this lot. Every game this season we seemed to fall foul of the ref or some poor decision. Never known a season like it.

    Injury time subs are the norm for breaking up dominance which is exactly what wolves were before scoring, it allows a regroup when the side is disjointed which it was beginning to look, it’s also a way of communicating the tactics you wish to set up to see the game out, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. As a rule of thumb the ref adds 30 secs for a sub, the goal was scored a couple of seconds before the 95th minute. The ref had the opportunity to blow when the ball went to a wolves player in the half way line shortly after the 94th minute was up, when the ball was played back the ref should have blown imo

    I would be more inclined to put the Wolves goal down to poor defending. Both Yedlin and Schar were both ball watching, Boly was outside the 6yd box when the Tuore cross came into the box , Boly was able to breeze between Yedlin and Schar to put in a challenge on Dubravka. If the defenders did their job Boly would have been blocked before he got anywhere near Dubravka . I can understand Dubravka claiming he got no protection.

    That’s exactly how I seen it, the fact the 3 centre halves kept their shape as the ball came in but did nothing to block his run… Surely from the first half corner bombardment the centre halves knew how much of a threat he would be in the box. That lad is a beast in the air!

    We will get nothing from Refs until we start making our own luck a bit more.
    At the moment we are the odd club owned by someone who does not want to own us.
    Give them nowt it’s only that lot and it does not matter. That seems to be their attitude.

    We got a penalty against Man City.
    Think that was for Liverpool not us.

    I’ve had time to reflect.

    Very disappointed to only draw to Wolves but I would have taken a point before the game such was all the pundits views on how well Wolves play.

    I feel sorry for Dubravka. He is a very good keeper and a good man to have in the dressing room. If a Keeper makes a mistake it can cost a game not so other players. Perhaps if the outfield players can score more than one goal a game a keeper’s mistake will not be so disastrous.

    I am very encouraged by the performance of the team in the last three games. These have not been relegation performances. The team has been very solid. A few home wins in the next few games and the dark clouds will be gone.

    I’ve been so impressed with Longstaff. If he played for ManU or any of the other teams at the top table the pundits would ecstatic and have pencilled him into England’s team. I only hope that the club’s hierarchy don’t sell him like previous managers and owners selling home grown jewels.

    Hey Jib. Did Rafa “prove your point” as well?

    “They did well,” “It wasn’t easy for them, because after they were playing with an extra player.” “They needed to manage the space well.”

    “Atsu was helping a lot and the same with Ayoze. It was not easy, but they did well.”

    “And also, little by little, we had the composure and the time on the ball that we were looking for to control the game.”

    We have 12 games to make sure that late goal does not matter.
    We are 7 games into the second half of the season.
    4 of those games have been against Man U, Man City, Spurs and Chelsea.
    We have taken 8 points from those 7 games.

    It’s down to us and if we keep playing like this we should do it.

    I mentioned this on the previous page, Jamal should have done more to block boly but dubravka is ultimately to blame. Its 100% not a foul, dubravka jumps to late, hes actually crouching before mistiming his jump.

    4mins or 5mins makes no difference, to many wanna deflect the blame, same with the foul on almiron, almiron committed the 1st foul then he was fouled a few seconds later.

    Bottom line is we defended the misshit cross badly and the keeper made another error, we only have ourselves to blame. Good job there keeper also made a mistake

    catchy “are you really going to give Rafa credit for Longstaff? if so you really are delusional.”

    Longstaff was taken to pre-season training by Rafa the last two seasons, was integrated into the first team squad via training sessions and appearances on the bench, was included in Cup games for the last two seasons and was ready to slot into the 1st team when required.

    Rafa prepared him so he could hit the ground running. It’s to Lobby’s credit that he’s done just that.

    You really are one-eyed and agenda-specific. Bored now.

    Atsu seems to play inside left forward when attacking and outside left midfield when defending, we haven’t seen his blistering pace take effect recently but I think that’s because he is more central to a certain extent. I would like to know why we are hitting one of the smallest players on the pitch with diagonal balls (I think he’s 5’6′ or something) and up against 6ft ± centre halves, a waste of possession imo, he needs it into feet!
