Match highlights

Highlights of this evening’s game between the Toffees and the Magpies at Goodison Park.

It was something of a “game of two halves” this evening, with Everton completely dominating the first 45 minutes with some excellent attacking football which left the Toon completely in their wake. For all their domination, they went in at the break with only one goal to the scoreboard, a great diagonal effort across Harper by Leighton Baines in the 15th minute.

In the second half though, Newcastle came out looking like a different team. Indeed, Demba Ba managed to equalise in the first few minutes with a landmark 1000th Premiership goal for the Magpies. This was thanks to an excellent pass slotted to him by the influental Yohan Cabaye.

However the lads were also very lucky when firstly Fellaini, and later substitute, Victor Anichebe, had two perfectly good goals ruled out. The first was for an offside that wasn’t offside and the second for a ball which defintely crossed the line but was also ruled out in what was a VERY poor performance from the officials. They were also a little yellow card happy too giving out six in what was generally a fairly good tempered match, except for a little righteous Evertonian fury at the officials. Even though I’m a Toon fan, I would say that most of it was justified though!

That all looked to be academic though when Victor Anichebe struck for the Toffees again in the 88th minute, without the goal being disallowed this time. However, Ba once again equalised in the last minute of normal time in what was a scintillating game with a magnificent finish!

  1. Well we guessed it would be a tactical challenge, and it proved just that. Altho Pards seemed to suggest that the key problem was attitude in the 1st half, there’s no denying a tinker of Ba on (who was fuming at being left out) was not the magic ingredient.

    Can Ba and Cisse work toegther as a front 2? Is it Shola as the hit man, and then either Ba/or Cisse partnering depending who’s on best form?

    Maybe Cisse will get a start on thurs….he looks to be fine tuning his targeting system.

    Also thought Anita looked great at RB, and Perch much happier in DM role.

    I think the team learnt some valuable lessons last night, esp the value of winning/fighting mentality.

    HWTL!!!

  2. 2 things about the ‘goals’ from last night.
    False negative – the goal that crossed the line: basically, we’ve all done it, missed something that happened. Its human, you can blink, be looking somewhere else, etc. The linesman didn’t see something that happened and I can accept that.

    False positive – the offside that wasn’t: this is the real problem. Whatever you were doing, whatever you were looking at, Felaini was not offside, no Everton player was. The linesman saw something that didn’t happen, didn’t exist, which is impossible. He guessed, lied, went mad, etc. This really annoys me in football, if it didn’t happen, you didn’t see it so don’t give it – don’t make stuff up because you think it may have happened.

    Oh, and marveaux was terrible.

    But credit to everyone for the Hillsborough tribute before the match, but no credit to the (drunk) lads behind me chanting incessantly, I think, black and white army, but reminded me more of the lamentable vuvuzela which stifled much of the other chanting – maybe I’m getting old….

  3. we got away with it, when we should have been put to the sword, in the first half.
    the thing pardew got last night, was a reaction from his side, which he hasn’t had for a long while.
    first half was shameful and was as bad as the relegation season.
    a marked improvement in the second half, but everton still should have won the game, with two legit goals, chalked off.
    still worrying signs there though, and this team aint going to pull up any trees, this season.

  4. I’ve looked at that Shola “chest pass” over and over again and either he was dead lucky or he skillfully managed to loop the ball over Jagielka’s head directly into Ba’s path ?

  5. Mothboy… the human brain isn’t designed to do offsides. Refs have a 24% failure rate on the call (read a book called “Brain Bugs” for more info).

    Why there isn’t video review is beyond me. They do this stuff in the NHL, which moves at 3x the pace of football. It’s ridiculous.

  6. Tripp says:

    “Mothboy… the human brain isn’t designed to do offsides. Refs have a 24% failure rate on the call (read a book called “Brain Bugs” for more info)”

    Aye I’ve read stuff today, mainly from disgruntled Evertonians, claiming the Assistant chose to “believe” it was offside rather than rely on his eyesight and what he saw.

    When you look at those decisions, split into freeze frames, its easy to determine the truth but unfortunately until they start employing “Robocop” officials we’ll just have to take the rough with the smooth and boy did we get more than our fair share of smooth yesterday :)

  7. Ba’s ‘agent’ needs to pipe down. Maybe he shouldn’t have been on the bench but maybe it was exactly what he needed.

  8. Big Sledge says:

    “Ba’s ‘agent’ needs to pipe down. Maybe he shouldn’t have been on the bench but maybe it was exactly what he needed”

    When I think of the most logical choice of striker to play up front on his own, given the stats since pre season, I’d choose Ba over Cisse 99 times out of 100.

    He’s scored this season, has had an impact in almost every game he’s played apart from Chelski perhaps, and leads the line, as a sole striker, far better than Papiss does.

    If it were down to me yesterday I’d have had Cisse on the bench and not Ba.

  9. Btw I dont think his agent should be agitating on his behalf but I can understand Ba’s reluctance to accept Cisse as the No. 1 striker.

  10. Demba has just been to the dentist, and he tweeted that the dentist said his teeth were perfect. Nothing about agents, Silver Supremo showdowns, dressing room handbags or anything like that.

  11. After last nights performance I will be waiting with baited breath to hear Pardwho’s selection for Thursday night.

    Could Tiote make it in time, will he pitch Elliot in, can he rely on Obertan and Marveaux after last night ?????

    If he could just get a settled formation and then ask the players taking part to work within that framework we’d at least stand a fighting chance!

    “Did obertan refuse to come on,or is it just waffle?”

    Don’t be daft sampdiago, of course he didn’t refuse to go on!

  13. workyticket says:

    “Don’t be daft sampdiago, of course he didn’t refuse to go on!”

    Well why would Ian Darke say that not once but twice ? (according to that great font of all knowledge )

    Maybe he couldnt get his tracksuit trousers off quick enough and Shola elbowed him out the way :)

  14. As far as Thursday is concerned this lot played tonight so maybe Sammy, Fergie and Gosling are on the plane along with Campbell ?

    Jak Alnwick, Mehdi Abeid, Michael Richardson (Yven Moyo 70), Curtis Good (c), Shane Ferguson, Sammy Ameobi, Conor Newton, Dan Gosling, Adam Campbell, Bradden Inman, JJ Hoope

  15. Apparently Obertan was due to take to the field but Ba equalised so Pardwho stopped him by using a series of semaphore flags which Obertan mistook for the French equivalent of “On your bike Squidward” ?

  16. AndyMac @15: I was just passing on what Darke had said, I didn’t make any comment. I addressed it to you because I know Obertan is your favourite.

    It does make a lot more sense that Pardew simply changed his mind as Obertan does not, as far as I know, have a reputation for being stroppy or being a troublemaker.

  17. no ba or cisse erurope adventure turning out to be practice for Newcastle youngsters turning out that way to be honest, not sure why they would leave ba behind hopefully not as a sign that he is being dropped again and just for saving his fitness for norwich

  18. GS says:

    “AndyMac @15: I was just passing on what Darke had said, I didn’t make any comment. I addressed it to you because I know Obertan is your favourite”

    So much so GS, I’d have him in my starting XI for Thursday.

    NUFC squad for Maritimo: Mehdi Abeid, Romain Amalfitano, Sammy Ameobi, Shola Ameobi, Vurnon Anita, Gael Bigirimana, Adam Campbell, Rob Elliot, Shane Ferguson, Dan Gosling, Steve Harper, Sylvain Marveaux, Gabriel Obertan, James Perch, Davide Santon, James Tavernier, Steven Taylor, Haris Vuckic, Mike Williamson

    Could be a big mistake but ……

    Harper
    Anita, Saylor, Williamson, Santon
    Perch, Abeid, Bigi
    Obertan, Shola, Sammi

    If we were in any way fortunate enough to be leading by two clear goals (yeah right :) ) by half time then Fergie for Santon, Tav for Anita, Perch for Saylor with Vuckic replacing him.

    If we’re struggling then Campbell for Obertan, Amalfitano for Abeid and go 4-4-2 hoof ball :)

    “NUFC squad for Maritimo:”

    This group stage could be as tight as a gnat’s chuff with squads like those, and we’ll need the likes of Benny, Cabaye and the rest for Bordeaux if they put strong sides out.

  20. Leighton Baines on Newcastle.

    “What is disappointing is Newcastle didn’t do anything special, they didn’t have any real play, they just played very direct got pretty much most of their joy from long balls and got their goals that way.”

    “We have got to be able to deal with stuff like that. They were pumping balls up time after time in the second half and Demba Ba gave them that bit more physical presence, but you must be able to defend that.

    “It’s disappointing we didn’t and couldn’t hang on when Victor scored. Newcastle have good players up front and are strong and quick, but we’ve got to be able to deal with that more often than we did on Monday.

    “It’s unusual for us not to see out the game. It’s very un-Everton like. It’s disappointing that we haven’t been done by a wonder goal or a magic piece of play. It was straightforward stuff. We feel both goals were preventable.”

    Ooh scratch his eyes out! How dare he say something like that. We are the Barcelona of the North.

  21. baines needs to look at his own team tactics – every ball punted up for fellatios head. everton have got right on my tits this last week the miserable moaning bastards. they are only good at bullying other teams into submission. i’m proud we stood up to them

    back in your boxes you bunch of tossers

  22. AndyMac says:

    On second thoughts lets just go the hoofball route, its what we know :)

  23. Andy, you’re replying to yourself. You need to seek help as Pardew finally seems to have driven you over the edge. Next comes the hysterical laughter for no apparent reason.

    “baines needs to look at his own team tactics – every ball punted up for fellatios head.”

    Well it’s a big enough target tattyheed.

  24. workyticket says:

    “Andy, you’re replying to yourself. You need to seek help as Pardew finally seems to have driven you over the edge. Next comes the hysterical laughter for no apparent reason”

    Tis only because I read your Leighton Baines quote,

    “What is disappointing is Newcastle didn’t do anything special, they didn’t have any real play, they just played very direct got pretty much most of their joy from long balls and got their goals that way.”

    “We have got to be able to deal with stuff like that. They were pumping balls up time after time in the second half and Demba Ba gave them that bit more physical presence, but you must be able to defend that”

    Pardwho’s gonna take that as a sign of encouragement :roll:

  25. Gotta say, we’ve gotten some amazing results and an impressive number of points for a side that, to me, hasn’t put together one really good (above average? I’d take it…) 90-minute performance.

    I guess it’s Shola up top on his own for the EL match? I dare say that’s a match from which we’ll need at least a point.

    Would be interesting to ask the blog what was the last, complete 90 minute performance ?

  27. Stoke City @ home ?

    “Just as bad days trigger recollections of previous onfield misadventures, then so do memorable matches conjure up memories of happy times. Although this victory made it six games unbeaten, today was the day when we genuinely strutted for the first time in that run and oozed class right across the park – those who dusted off the ‘Entertainers’ tag afterwards were on the button. Scoring goals that were in equal parts brilliant and inspired, Newcastle seemed possessed with an unstoppable momentum and there was something majestic about their play from front to back”

  28. Yep, Stoke at home or at a stretch, Chelsea away which wasn’t a classic performance but solid and deserving of a win against good opposition.

  29. Sorry, I meant to have one of my epic previews out for tomorrow’s game at around 7pm but something came up. It will be ready in the morning instead now by the look of things.

  30. See we are going to have to endure months of speculation over Demba Ba’s release clause again.
    Taking newsnow off my bookmarks for good now I just get irritated with anything that Pardew says now.

  31. SJT, one thing I could never endure as an NUFC supporter was seeing Iain Dowie’s contorted face in the dugout when he was screaming. That was truly the stuff of nightmares and a very heavy price to pay for my devotion. I’ll never forgive Alan Shearer for that. Up until then I thought that having to look at Big Sam’s contorted face, and then Big Sam’s contorted football was bad.
