Norwich 4-2 Newcastle – Video lowlights plus Pardew and Lambert interviews

As part of our analysis of the 4-2 defeat to Norwich City yesterday we have some video highlights, or perhaps I should say lowlights, for you all to take a peek at.

Forgetting the shocking defending for a moment, hard I know, but I have to give Demba Ba a mention. I know it’s early days but I really do think he is our best striker since Shearer. I commented on it last night, but the guy has everything. He has pace, power, strength, finesse, aerial ability and he knows where the back of the net after bagging 11 goals in 11 games for us so far this season. He’ll be a big miss in January.

Moving onto managerial interviews now and first up we have Alan Pardew who was left frustrated by the current injury list that he is having to deal with. Whilst I agree that it’s frightening just how many first-team players we have out at the moment it’s also worth pointing out that injuries are part and parcel of the game.

And finally we have the victorious Paul Lambert who feels that his side was worth the victory, even though I disagree, but then again I would. I personally feel that the only difference was the effectiveness of his sides set pieces, or should I say our ineffective attempts at defending them.

Just call it a hunch, but I don’t think too many of you will be bothered about me adding longer highlights so I’ll just leave it as is. However if somebody does want them, or even the full match download links then just leave a comment asking for them and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Howay the lads!

  1. I thought Perch had a good game yesterday. Plenty of positives to take from the game. Shola Ameobi did not played particularly well in the first half but improved in the second. However, I think jonas and obertan did not had a productive game yesterday. For me, they provided very little service to the strikers especially obertan. Maybe its due to the time he was out and probably needs more time to feel himself back into full sharpness. Sammy should be given more playing time too. Cabaye made a few misplaced passes but overally was rather solid. Santon was comfortable with the ball, but his defending was suspect and he also has the tendency to keep his hand above his waist while defending, which I think it may cost us one day. I like how the team relentless chased for the equaliser even though we were down 3-1 and with 10 man. Saying that, I think Gosling just blew his chance of claiming the centre midfield berth during Tiote’s predicted absence in January.


  2. Think Pardew told it how it was, gonna struggle without key players but we still should have defended better


  3. 2 weeks 2day until xmas, or 3 weeks today until the transfer window opens!!!

    Mike has already sent 20 green berets to the The london mint office to release the cash from his bullion vault..or was that to guard it πŸ™‚


  4. seems no-way back for Bassong after he was fined for refusing to play pre-season

    from a toon source in the ppl “There are still plenty of players left with us from that season and they have long memories. Bassong will not be welcome here and won’t be coming back.”


  5. Terrible defensive display!

    Without Colo, Tiote Taylor we will naturally struggle. The players stepping in aren’t good enough.

    Something needs to happen in January or it will be a disaster! 😯


  6. @mark

    I mentioned those points last week on another thread.

    I wouldn’t want any player back who refused to play a game in order to hurry his move away from the club.!

    Stuff him! 😯


  7. Toon@jer

  9. Disappointing result but nite sure may teams would survive losing their 3 main centre halves and playing a right back and a utility man in the heart of the defense. Norwich played to our weakness and fair play to them id expect us to do the same. Have a horrible feeling that any 50-50 decisions are gonna go against us now after getting a non peno at old trafford! Last week it was Luiz this week the corner for their first goal. Hopefully we get one if not both Colo and Williamson back. But we are then missing our 4 main centre mid. Its tough at the top πŸ™


  10. ppl said Perch played well last week v Chelsea πŸ™„ he didnt!

    Played poorly y’day too. It wasnt long ago we wanted shot of him and he wanted out too, probably realising he was no good in the prem. now we seem happy papering over the cracks and making excuses for his displays..


  11. “The shaman – wearing a leafy head-dress – performed a ritual Β­involving mysterious chanting, singing and prayers so that Tiote’s injury curse would be broken.”

    Surely they can’t print such vile stereotypes?


  12. How can anyone say Perch played well when you watch Norwich’s 4 th goal.

    He’s standing 2 yards off his opponent, like he did last week, which resulted in the opponent hitting the back of the net.

    Not good enough and the sooner people catch onto the fact, the better for NUFC! 😯


  13. About centre half situation. I’d much rather see a reserve or youth central half play than someone getting played out of position. Is that not what they are there for anyway? Sounded was the king of square pegs in round holes.


  14. Troy i agree perch isn’t good enough. Its as simple as that. I fully get behind the lad when he pulls on the shirt and that kinda thing but that shouldn’t mask the fact that he isn’t up to scratch.


  15. @I love Mike

    It is all true.

    My great great grandad, aged 127 yrs old is the Shaman named in the 😯 paper.

    I sometimes go over there and learn his skills of witch doctoring! 😯

    The leafy headress has to be worn with a thorny bramble bush covering your prize assets.
    My great great grandad has died twice in his lifetime and on one occasion was dead for 6 weeks. I brought him back to life with the secret potions derived from the amazon jungle.

    Tiotes knee will be no problem. A mixture of seagull urine, a touch of lemon, a salamanders colon and a human testicle blended in crocodiles blood should have the knee fixed within a jiffy. 😯


  16. @I Love Mike πŸ˜†

    that brought back my trippy rave days, might to and dig out my boss drum album and In Gorbachev We Trust, wasnt as popular but had some canny track on it.

    wheres those vics gloves πŸ˜†


  17. Unfortunately, he can’t do anything to prevent the transfer going through. He doesn’t have enough money. 😯


  18. @troy

    Asda sell that nu m8..have to get the jiffy from the post office tho πŸ˜†


  19. My great great grandad The Shaman Tatantka IyoTatantka is a black n White thro and thro despite that he’s never seen them playing but used to listen to the BBC worldwide radio transmissions of the toon games when Hughie Gallagher was knocking them in for fun.

    Funny enough, he was great friends with the witch doctor Big Chief Sitting Bull who used to sit in the East Stand in the 80’s and do his Indian cry to spur the Toon onto victory. ! πŸ˜†


  20. “Funny enough, he was great friends with the witch doctor Big Chief Sitting Bull who used to sit in the East Stand in the 80β€²s and do his Indian cry to spur the Toon onto victory.”……Lol, remember him well, happy days those were Troy πŸ˜€


  21. @troy

    aye, I remember the sitting bull days in the 80’s, the team use to run out to ‘Geronimo’ sang by local hero Hank Marvin..

    those were the days of pride.. Perch wouldnt of got a game in those days..


  22. Perch made a number of vital interceptions especially in the first half. He kept pressure on the strikers high up the field too. The only blip in the first half was when he got too close and was turned easily. Yes we did concede 4 goals but most of them were the fault of the defense as a whole and not perch only


  23. Perch did play well, when it came to tackling. Unfortunately when the ball is on the air he is parp and that is what cost us yesterday


  24. their first 2 goals were scored with Ba being out-jumped, Carroll would of probably cleared them but maybe wouldnt of scored the two Ba got.

    Thats the only area Carroll is probably better than Ba, aerially.


  25. A P got the tactics spot on yesterday.

    Playing Perch and Simpson in centre defence and Shola up front only highlighted to Ashley the desperate need for two new defenders and a striker asap.


  26. For a tall bloke Perch is gash in the air, way too light weight. He has that knack of not quite reaching the ball when the cross comes in, typical of a player not confident in his own heading ability. πŸ™„


  27. Toonsy….does everyone have the “date sexy African women” ad at the bottom of the page…. ? πŸ™„ πŸ™„ πŸ˜†


  28. Perch doesn’t even try and header the ball so i don’t know whether he’s parp in the air or not.

    He could be the worlds best if he ever considers trying to header it but he seems content to keep his feet firmly on tera ferme .

    I think he’s scared of heights.


    Sorry but you are wrong and you need to watch him more closely. 😯


  29. To be honest, without Colo and Taylor, our whole backline looks gash in the air.

    I’ve been onto big chief sitting bull to see if we can borrow his totem pole to play in the centre of defence instead of Perch! 😯


  30. I’m gutted cos I can see the mackems rising up the league with O Neill in charge.

    They need to change those pink seats in the stadium leek!
    They look cheap and nasty! πŸ˜†

    Maybe not. Just leave them. 😳


  31. Troy
    Get your granddad Les’ old mate Billy Two Rivers to dance round the totem pole and a witch doctor to accompany him.

    Probably a better centre defence partnership than that we put out yesterday.


  32. I dont agree totally with some of you about Perch, In my opinion it is really a bad player but in this game in the second and fourth goal, it was Ameobi fault because if you look Ameobi has to mark Hott but in the 2 actions he let him go and the guy can easily score. Ameobi yesterday was really really poor in 1st half second half a little bit better, but i think need to use him like a sub. the problem with Obertan is that this guy is completely inefficient and unproductive, just look to his statistics from the start of the season and of his career
