Newcastle 3-2 Chelsea – Match highlights and managerial interiews

Some highlights of the superb 3-2 victory over Chelsea for you all to review now. It was a cracking game so enjoy.

It was a game that had me on the edge of my seat but the bonus this time is that we managed to grab the three points. A goal from Jonas Gutierrez and two goals on his home debut from Moussa Sissoko proved to be enough and outweighed strikes from Frank Lampard and Juan Mata.

Alan Pardew speaks about the victory over Chelsea.

While Rafa Bentiez believes that Coloccini should have seen red for breaking Demba Ba’s nose.

Two wins in a week is all we can ask for. It’s Tottenham away next which is another bonus game for me, a game where points are a bonus. However confidence is starting to return to this side and it won’t be an easy game for Spurs for sure.

Howay the lads!

  1. I tell you what, I know they just scored, but I really don’t think much of Spurs. Their gameplan is simple, players run about with the sole aim of creating room for Bale to get the ball and either 1. run into space, or 2. get a shot off.

    We mark Bale out of the game and we stop Spurs. Simple as.


  2. Re the Tiote debate ,my main gripe with him is he never seems far away from a red card . I realise the nature of his positional play means it’s always a danger due to the interventions /blocks he has to make ,but he simply has to start timeing his tackles better and control that aggressive style of play he has . Tiotes role is a dying art in todays game ,more and more the contact side of the game is being quashed . Anita is part of the new breed in that role I suppose but it’s true to say he needs to bulk up a bit . I know he is working on as he has talked about it in a recent interview and is putting the hours in ,in the gym πŸ˜‰ He does appear to be getting to grips with the physical side of the PL and will improve with time and playing oppotunities. Eventually he will replace Tiote for good in that role and we will have the benefit of a player who can also spray good passes around too. We also have a good future player in Bigi too imo.


  3. The Kid @77 ,I agree everything seems to go through Bale with Spuds ,but I still think they will be hard to beat.


  4. Question: if Cote de Ivory gets knocked out today should toto start v Spurs? If so does he come in for Perch?


  5. Talking of predictions, The cold breeze predicted Pards would be sacked around the 2.13 yrs mark. πŸ˜›

    Close the window Toonsy. There’s a cold draught. πŸ˜›


  6. Kim I agree Tiote is alwayson the verge of red, but when he is on his game he is an absolute force that will allow Cabs and Sissoko to bomb forward. At least now the new found depth will allow pards to sub him out when he picks up an early yellow or if he looks like he’s on the verge of one of his rampages


  7. MDS ,yes there is that argument ,also maybe with a calmer set of players who can hang onto the ball in front of him the need for rash tackles will dissappear too .It’s fair to say he was great last season but seems along with a few to of lost his way this season.


  8. Yeah Kim I would like to see him with this new set of players to see if he can regain his form from last year which, as you say, was fantastic. I just don’t think teams like Chelsea would be willing to do so much flirting around the top edge of the box if they knew the Nigerian freight train was lurking about πŸ˜‰


  9. —————————-Krul——————————

    Should Nigeria knock IC out today this will probably be the team Pardew picks v spurs. Swap Benny in for Jonas and possibly YM for Saylor and that’ll be our PL team for the season I reckon.


  10. Jonas had a decent game yesterday but people are acting like he just put in a 9 or 10 out of 10 performance… It was more like an 7.5 or 8 out of10 and his crossing was still useless (except for 1). He put in 1 decent cross (not great just decent), scored a good headed goal, made a few good challenges and didn’t lose the ball as much as usual.

    I think Jonas has just been so useless that people are shocked he had a decent game and are exaggerating how good he actually was. I’d still have Marveaux, Ben Arfa, Gouffrand and even Obertan ahead of Jonas for the 2 wide spots. People critcise Obertan a lot but he has still looked like he could create stuff in his performances before his recent absence. Before yesterday Jonas has probably created about 1 good chance every 10 games.

    I’m also not going to credit Jonas with a part in Cabaye’s goal against Villa. His cross was useless as it went nowhere near a Newcastle player. We scored because their defender made a bad clearance under no pressure and Cabaye had a great 1st touch and world class finish.

    Don’t mean to sound negative and Jonas did play well yesterday but Ben Arfa and Marveaux should be ahead of him when fit if there’s any justice in the team selection.
