Newcastle Defender’s Summary – Today Just Wasn’t Our Night


Federico Fernandez has been one of Newcastle’s best defenders this season, and he was rested for the game last night against Manchester City in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

It was always going to be a tall order for Newcastle to get through this game, and we lost 2-0 in what was too easy a game for the Manchester side.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in each half were enough to see Manchester City – the holders – get through to the semi-finals, where they will play what currently is a dodgy Arsenal side.

Federico Fernandez (shown above) admitted he was disappointed with both the performance and the result last night, as he had this to say to nufcTV:

“To be honest I’m disappointed, especially in the first half. We stayed in a good shape and tried to do our own game, but with the ball we didn’t find too many passes and we played too many long balls to Andy Carroll.”

“It was much better in the second half, we put on the pressure higher up the pitch with the extra man in midfield.”

“We had a really clear chance with Dwight Gayle to get back in the game, but after the second goal it was difficult for us.”

“It was details which decided the game, but I repeat for us it was much better in the second half.”

“We can compete and put them under more pressure. I’m disappointed, but we fought and tried to do our best.”

“Today it wasn’t our night.”

“To play here with the fans would have been a different story. We missed the atmosphere here, but it is what it is.”

“We need to carry on and finish the season in a better way, and we’ll see next season if the fans can come back here.”

The game can be summed up with two errors.

Fabian Schar, who replaced Federico in Newcastle’s defense, needlessly shoved Gabriel Jesus for an obvious penalty in the first half.

And then in the second half, Dwight Gayle missed a sitter from six yards out having been set up brilliantly by Allan Saint-Maximin, when the score was still 1-0.

It wasn’t our night last night – let’s hope it will be on Wednesday when we are at Bournemouth.

We need a win in that game and then we will be safe in the Premier League.

    It is quite funny when you called someone puerile and you then proceed to tell someone else they have a pen-s on their head. Please define puerile again.

    Things you can set your watch by.

    1) Jib defending Ash come hell or high water
    2) Munster slagging Rafa and bigging up Bruce over 1 incomplete season, rather than 20 years and where we now find ourselves in 14th!
    3)Toon 22 negatively gloating over the T/O.
    4) Vegan winding everyone up and enjoying it.

    Am I right or am I right?

    Looking at the teams left in for the cup, it’s the same every year from the top six. No other team has a chance, their fans are really not bothered. It’s tragic. It’s not really a fair competition, it’s great when a lesser team make it to the final, then usually get relegated the next season.

    Watford, Villa, Palace, Hull, stoke, Portsmouth and Wigan have made the Cup final in the past 10 years.

    If you go all out for it, its certainly not impossible to get to the final for teams outside the top 6.

    How is that not “argumentative” then mate? Come on mate I thought you wanted to talk football?

    Where do you think the club’s money goes, Mund? Why don’t we invest like the teams around us? Why have Leicester managed to grow so much quicker than us with a smaller fanbase and lower turnover?

    Ed you say “The game can be summed up with two errors”
    No the game can be summed up with three words – “men against boys” or “class against dross”

    Either the Wife is getting annoyed at losing out to Carltoon and Jail on Duolingo or more likely, she is just sick of all the petty arguments and accusations on here, some of it is like a bunch of school kids. Others can be seen to just want to argue and upset, spoils a good read and good blog

    AP; to be fair to KV and T22; there’s not much to talk about. Yesterday’s match was a joke as is the takeover. If Ashley stays their will not be any investment in the club at any level.
    It’s all very depressing.
    We would all love to be talking about a brilliant match and potential new signings but neither will happen as long as Ashley is here.
    The vacuum has to be filled, I’m sure KV and T22 would rather have more positive debates.

    Kv post 22.

    Simple answer is because Ashley is a Cnut. We all know that, almost everyone on the blog agrees that he doesn’t invest and has ruined the club.

    Now becoming that almost everyone on the blog is agreeing that you are a wum and are ruining the blog

    Yes they did, but it’s depressing that it’s the usual teams. I don’t think we had much of a chance against Man City, we should have given it more of go in the first half, but I think no matter what we did they were determined to win. I mean look at Schar, he does that in every game he plays. Think he did better in the second half. I mean one goal scorer that’s what we need, it’s impossible when we don’t have one.

    Dont agree that Danny Rose is class i think he is a bit of a gobshite .
    I know spuds fans were glad to see the back of him .
    Never rated him started out as a winger for Leeds and then was reverted to a full back because he wasn’t good enough .
    Would much prefer jetro .

    Nobody in that team deserves a vote they were all crap. All it shows is how the Premier league have allowed a few teams to dominate, it’s looking more and more like the Scottish football is that what they want??
