  1. I’m knackered after that! :D

    Awful 1st half, outstanding 2nd half. Proud of Pardew and the lads for how they responded. We could and maybe should have won it in the end.

    Super Shola saves the day again!

    4 pts will have to do till next season. :D

  2. Mug of the season award goal to (drum roll plz):

    Lee Cattermole for managing to get a straight red 2 minutes after the final whistle.

    Well done Lee. What a guy, what a tw*t!

  3. What?

    Why didn’t Cabaye take a couple?
    Little things in football make all the difference.

  4. Granted Cabaye could have taken a couple but why look immediately at the negative?

    We were shit 1st half because they set a dirty tone with Cattermole’s pathetic (should have been red card)after 28 seconds! They settled after that and we were still wound up.

    In the 2nd half it was ALL us and nothing but massive luck we didn’t go ahead earlier. Taylor had a better game than Cabaye who was invisible most of the game anyway.

    Cabaye had what 3-4 shots, all of which miles over. Love the guy but he had a shocker.

    At least we go the MINIMUM we deserved could have been much, much worse if not for Shola stepping up.

    That should be what we’re talking about not the bullshit that doesn’t matter now.

  5. You dont always get what you deserve in life,today we did enough to win three games.I notice the sell shola boys are quiet today,how anybody can criticise raylor is beyond me after the contribution he has made this season,
    willo however hard he tries is not good enough for this team.One last thing for today Pardew is a Mag he cares and he would chin Oniell any day of the week,HWTL.

  6. What an exhausting day, what an odious mobof unwashed cloggers, what a plank of a ref, what a sub in HBA and what an important mackem smasher is the Ameobi.

  7. Wos at the match 2 day and Cabaye did take a corner or two at the end-ineffective as Raylor and same as most corners we have had this season but at the end of the day over the last few performances we were a lot better-2nd half mind you once we decided to have a shot or two! The problem we have is that we have two top class strikers and very little service-too much space between the front two and the midfield-we need a good link man Ben Arfa is brill although a liability sometimes. Overall I’ll take the draw if only to keep King Kennies gob drooping further. Ruined the Toon -will ruin the bin dippers.

  8. Martin O’Neill has raised a controversy over a visit to the referee’s changing room by Newcastle United staff at half time, and suggested that’s the refereeing changed in the second half after the alleged meeting. Cattermole was sent off after the end for raising the issue too in rather impolite terms, and was suspended for three matches for a straight red card rather than a second yellow.

    I for one feel very sad for Cattermole, and very sorry to hear that the Mackems feel this way. A full public inquiry should be held immediately IMHO.

  9. Agreed. Must get to the bottom of this skulldugery post-haste, Mr O’s side played with pride, character and above all fairness, while the Magpies side was sneaky, dirty, feigning injury and incessantly complaining for no reason. Mr O’ also recognises that the sending off of Sessegnon was the turning point in the game. Too right, up until then the 2nd half had started much the same as the first had ended. He was also correct that Newcastle were lucky to have kept all 11 men on the pitch, and again, correct, although the delicately refined Mr Cattermole tried his best to have one butchered, he was unsuccessful.

  10. Pardew’s a Geordie ? yeah sure !
    Been saying Williamson is a liability for ever and Raylor is a great second tier player.
    As for any manager who would play Raylor on the wing while sitting HBA?, well what can I say, this is the same guy who sat the two Argentino’s at West Ham.
    Did’nt see the game, so cant comment.
    But not unhappy to get a point outta it.
    The league has begun to settle into a battle between the two Manc. sides.
    With Chelsea a shadow of the side it was a few years ago,
    bit predictable and long in the tooth, expect big bucks to be spent in the summer.
    The Arse are totally unpredictable, as likely to be hammered as they are to thrash sides, which they did a few days ago (Spurs)
    As for Spurs, play nice football, but what happened again to-day ?
    Liverpool? another unpredictable side going nowhere
    As for the Toon, a few players short of making a challenge, hope to hell we can strengthen our defence come the summer window.
    The quality difference between the two big Spanish sides and the rest of the Champions league sides is obvious and i cant see anyone other than them winning the cup.
    A bit different from a couple of years ago, when the EPL had three of the last four teams in the competition.
    Believe this coming season could be the last, where a lot of dosh is spent on players (new rules comming into effect) which could make it a banner year for spending.
    But we dont really have to worry about it as unless Ashley has had a change of heart, which is unlikely.
    Guess the original five year plan is on hold.

  11. Slightly negative tinge there Chuck. Yes the Toon is JUST a few players short of making a challenge. Good, isn’t it?

  12. I caught the second half (4:00 am start was too much to ask after a late night) but caught the best of the game by all accounts. What troubles me slightly, from a broader perspective, is how Wolves were properly spanked by Fulham when we could only manage a draw, and we could only do the same against the Mackems who lost 4-0 away to WBA last weekend. Something does not seem quite right. Secondly, it was a pity that Shola did not take the penalty. He understands the pressure of this game more than Demba Ba, and we have seen him lash the ball home from the spot. It might have even given us the win.

    “I caught the second half (4:00 am start was too much to ask after a late night) but caught the best of the game by all accounts.”

    Paul, I’m just about to post a link for the whole match, the interviews and everything so stay tuned!

    I thought that Shola should take the penalty too, but just because he’s good at penalties.

  14. Thanks Worky, all of this is greatly appreciated, especially the links which allow the likes of me to watch the games.

  15. Aye, Shola ‘mackem slayer’ Ameobi shoulda took the pen. Didn’t feel confident soon as i saw Demba had the ball in his hands, although, fair play to him for having the balls, as it were.
    If we had scored there, i feel we woulda had enough time to go on & win it. Just run outta time.
    We were our own worst enemy in the first half, too cautious, yet getting sucked into the tramps manky game plan. The ref also got sucked in, thinking he could ‘stamp his authority’ early, he failed. How we had 5 yellows to their 3 in that game was impossible to extrapolate from the action.

    “Thanks Worky, all of this is greatly appreciated, especially the links which allow the likes of me to watch the games.”

    Nee botha Paul.

    Post up now, but you may have to leave the full match stream for a while, possibly have a cup of coffee or whatever whilst it bulds up some buffering. I have fast BB but that’s what I had to do.

  17. A challenge for what! you ask ?
    Well i would like to feel that at the beggining of any future season, NUFC would be both a contender for the league and be confident of at least a top six spot.
    Too much to ask ?
