Game On! Chelsea v Newcastle

Game on at Chelsea!
Welcome one and all to our “Game On” article which this evening will take us through every twist and turn of the game at Stamford Bridge.

It is an unfortunate fact perhaps, but we are fast running out of football this season. On the plus side though we at least have something to play for, and that is rather amazingly a stab at qualifying for the Champions League. I’m not going to go through it again as everyone knows what is needed.

The odds are slim of course with three tough games remaining, but whilst it’s still mathematically possible we have to make sure we give it our best shot, which is something the players failed to do during the 4-0 weekend loss to Wigan.

I’ll leave it there for this game as not much else needs adding really. However if you do wish to read a bit more background on the match then by all means feel free to have a quick read of the match preview which details any news of injuries, suspension and a bit of history about the fixture.

Unfortunately the TV cameras have chosen to show the Bolton v Tottenham game this evening which means that we won’t be broadcast here in the UK. In turn that means that if you happen to come across any decent streams that you’d like to share by way of leaving a comment then you will be more than welcome to.

Team news will be featured below in full as and when it becomes available.

Howay the lads!

Chelsea: Petr Cech; Jose Bosingwa, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Ryan Bertrand; Jon-Obi Mikel, Raul Meireles; Ramires, Florent Malouda, Daniel Sturridge; Fernando Torres.

Subs: Ross Turnbull, Ashley Cole, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard, Juan Mata, Salomon Kalou, Didier Drogba.

  1. …emphasis on the “pretty much” there BB, evidently.

    Roll on Man City though eh 😯 😯

    What a fkn game that is, even before it’s been played! Thank you Sky Sports ❗

  2. I’m genuinely shocked at what I saw at the end of that game. Seriously, what a goal. I can’t believe he even tried it. Ridiculous! We have the best striker in the league. The most natural finisher around right now.

    If we beat City I will change my tune and say we fully deserve Champions League football. No matter what, we have done ourselves proud this year and I can see us attracting quite a few quality players in the summer.

    We just have to ask for £100m :mrgreen: If Torres is £50m and Cisse scored two goals to his zero then he has to be worth at least double 😆 its logic 😀

  4. DJG, they were already circling when we snapped him up mate. He’s here for the duration. Fatty won’t sell his number 9 replacement, surely……… ❓

      (Quote)

  5. Demba may now be sold, use the £7m to buy Cisse some top quality boots and a ****-load of footballs to practice with at training 😆

  6. …Andy@306, or an ultimate hi-tech portable prayer mat that he can carry around in his sock.

    GO GO GADGET PRAYER MAT 😯

  7. Papiss Demba Cisse, describing his wonder strike that helped Newcastle beat Chelsea: “With the second goal, when I saw it coming back from Shola Ameobi I just wanted to kick it. I had no energy so I just wanted to hit it and it ended up going in. The goal came at the right moment, they were putting pressure on us so it helped release the tension. I am very happy to score 13 goals so far, as a striker I just want to feel good and score goals.”

  8. just seen demba and cisse interviewed on sky sports news…. demba translating for cisse….. what a great double act! ha ha

  9. Mind I think its disgusting how we had 3 players booked to their none. 😯
    How wasn’t mikel booked for decking Tiote ❓ utter kunt 👿
    Tiote got a yellow for his 1st foul ffs.
    Chelsea are a dirty bunch of tw@ts, yet they get away scot free.
    Refereeing beggars belief.

    aye pards said they wanted a prayer room or something, we’ll build him a church(muslim equivalent(mosk?)) with that £7m 😆

  11. Nice to see Petr Ceck suffer at the end after he gave it the big ones about how Chelsea’s experience will beat Newcastle.

  12. Kirkyman
    That’s his new job now, he can’t score for **** 😈 🙄 , seriously though, Ba must be ****ting it that Cisse could better his goal tally this season 😯 :mrgreen:

      (Quote)

  13. Surely Arsenal or spurs must slip up in the next two games, we now NEED to beat City(or draw if Arse and spurs lose) 😡 😆

      (Quote)

  14. i know andy, 13 goals!! the guy is a goal machine….. cant believe he has never scored a hat trick…… lets hope he gets his first one on sunday 🙂

      (Quote)

  15. I wouldn’t get that carried away like Andy.
    …the ‘gadget prayer mat TM’ would be for pitch use only. If he carries on the way he’s going though I’d be happy to put a giant tit shaped roof on the training ground building, with bell towers, the lot.

      (Quote)

  16. Noticed cisse didn’t kiss the floor like usual. Ba must’ve had a word with him:
    Ba “Hey Papiss stop copying my celebration”
    Cisse “what?”
    Ba “The kissing the floor celebration, its mine”
    Cisse “You can have it back when you score 😎 ” 😆

  17. BB@315, seriously though mate, it can’t be that hard tedee. Yiv seen magicians pulling massive hankies oot tha sleeves anarl that. Could be a new marketing gimic for the NUFC merchandising department.

    …not sure Allah would approve like 😕

  18. Thanks Batty, had to leave to go to the train stationas the 2nd half started, had a very breaky Radio Newcastle on but could hear them going wild about the goal, now i’ve seen it, can understand why

  20. What an unbelievable result – dead proud of the lads and jesus that second goal from Cisse was just immense. Well deserved and warrior Tiote will be playing Sunday – woo hoo. Brilliant brilliant resuly. Down side the bloody russian watching that with his cheque book to hand.

  24. I love how casual Cisse looks when he scores absolute world beater!

    Great tweet from Chris Nutbeam –

    Cisse’s goal takes Suarez’s, gives it a cuddle, makes it a glass of milk and puts it to bed. #unreal

    Think thats a good way to sum it up!

  25. “Pride restored at NUFC?”

  28. the commentators were so pro chelski wanting them to score all the time.
    cringeworthy 😳
    A bit like Petre Cech, none of us saw that coming. 😆

      (Quote)

  29. we have never won down there in the history of the prem league 😯
    We are just destroying stat after stat this season

      (Quote)

  30. If Ash were to cash in on Cisse there would be a riot I reckon. We have a goal machine there and a bloody decent human being too. Sometimes no amount of money can be justified. The goals he scores are priceless and will b e what keeps us strong next season ,right now he seems miles better than RVP or Rooney imo.

  31. well I’ve gotta try and get some kip. Back on the road early doors.
    Later peeps
    HOWAY the LADS.

  32. Man, I can not wait for the end of the season goal compilation videos that are sure to come out on YouTube. There have been so many fantastic ones this season.

    That goal was insane…the amount of bend…unreal.
    No more Bend it like Beckham….now it’s Swerve it like Cisse.

  33. 348-What an absolute bitter prick! Can’t blame him though, ****ing hilarious night. Absolute wonder goal(s) Love it! TOON TOON!

  34. Andy, after extended grinning periods I always find a good stretch of depression helps counteract high-point facial muscle fatigue. 😉

      (Quote)

  35. Well i’ve watched it again on sky and that 2nd goal is outta this world ,defo goal of the season imo.
    Anyway I’m off to bed worn out with pleasure overdose after that 😀 nite all.

  36. haven’t been on in a while but felt compelled to make a show of appreciation for the Cisse goal machine. Oh and a mention for some others – santon really stepping up now, jonas was ragged at the end, the irrepresible perchinho, and the desperate shame of Ba being denied a couple himself. Please let us not be scragged by citeh, it’s my last game of the season please let it be magic! 😀

      (Quote)

  37. Yeah, MDS, agree. And man, what a run on FSC lately, eh? 3 games in a row on TV…very nice. And Fox Networks are showing 9 of the last 10 games. Surely that means another Newcastle game, making it the last 4 games of the season all broadcast here in the US for us to enjoy.

    What a fantastic season this has been…my favorite yet as a fan.

      (Quote)

  38. Definitely washes the bitter taste of the loss earlier this season, apart from Staylor though, still pretty gutted for him.

    Still, can’t feel bad today 😉

  39. Just watched Cisse’s second goal.

    This coincided, unsurprisingly, with an unexpected release of fluid in my trousers.

    That was quite possibly the single best strike I’ve ever seen. Top THAT Messi.

    Citeh’s gotta be ****tin’ themselves at the prospect of defending wor Cisse lol!!

    😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈 😈

  40. It is indeed a great time to be a Newcastle fan. We must just enjoy it guys. These bunch of players we have, have the right balance of hunger, youth, experience and probably the best team spirit I have seen in this generation of big money football. All these ingredients work congruently to give us these results.

    The defence were immense today that is the foundation Cisse had for his double strike again Pardew got the tactics just right. Once we got the goal we let Chelsea play the ball and keep possession but that tactic on its own does not work without a defence on which you can rely and today all the boys colo williamson etc played like Gods.

    I will even argue that this is the best football we have played ever Simply because the league has never been this competitive.

    I have to take my hat off to Pardew his play, calls in the final part of the season have been Manchester united like.

  41. …still watching the highlights on SS1 here like, but fk me, that first goal was so well organised…

    Torres wimpishly loses the mid air challenge to Tiote, ball falls to Willo, calmly passed back to Colo who slides it back to Krul.

    HOOF 😯 …falls back to Colo after Gutierrez beaten in the air by Bosingwa, then straight to…

    Coloccini…
    Ba…
    Cabaye…
    Tiote…
    Gutierrez…
    Santon (on the overlap….

    CISSE! 😯 😯 😯

    …is that lad capable of normal goals ❓

    Quality team effort man. Got the second goal to study yet……

    (who the **** are Man City)

      (Quote)

  42. Anyone notice how good Santon was today? His Goalline clearance was astounding 😯

      (Quote)

  43. Messi trousers, can you get them from Barcelona’s merchandising empire? You should be able to anyway.

    Messi Trousers, always get you noticed. 😎

    My trousers are pants. 👿

      (Quote)

  44. Rodz,

    I literally just laughed outloud, mate

    “My trousers are pants” hahahahaha 😆 😆 😆

      (Quote)

  45. …not kind to mock the unfortunate Hurls, I can’t help having **** trousers. 👿
    I dream of the day I get my first pair of Messi pants though…………(swoooon)

  46. Sticking all my savings on Cisse pipping Van Rapie to the Premier League golden boot award.

    Also converting to Islam once he gets his 100th goal for the club – in December….

  47. Did Messi fill Kaka’s boots with something?
    I know George Peppard his pants once.

  48. …kinel, still watching Sky Plus highlights here. Tiote WELL did Mikel, understandable revenge was on the menu…

      (Quote)

  49. Wonder if Perch could mount a challenge for a starting place at right back…or even left back next season 😯

      (Quote)

  50. …having said that, Mikel had only one thing on his mind in that 50/50, and that was taking Chieck out. Pretty ****ing disgraceful how Mikel sauntered back past a prostrate Tiote, and gob on the floor though. No sign of concern whatsoever.

    HANG HIM 😯
