Newcastle 2-2 Wolverhampton
Starting with our man of the match, Pappiss Demba Cisse. He played well throughout the game and always seemed to be in the right place at the right time.
In the first half we dominated the game but in the second half we dropped off and let Wolves run circles around us. It was definitely one of our worst performances of the season but a great performance from Wolves with their new manager Terry Connor.
(Well done to Terry)
We were 2-0 up at half time but it could have easily been more and during the second half we conceded two unlucky goals to bring our once superb performance to a crashing and shocking draw at the end of the match.
We could have won the match and picked up 3 points if we hadn’t fallen asleep in the second half and Danny Simpson hadn’t deflected that extremely fluky goal!
Our next match is at home against our local rivals Sunderland (The Mackems)

Fulham 5 – Newcastle 2
A disappointing match with bad performances throughout the team, the 5-2 score line says it all! Fulham played well and we just didn’t have the standard to keep up with them.
Although the referee helped in their favour, we had a few moments of magic but not enough to win the match.
At the end of the day our man of the match was Hatem Ben Arfa for a brilliant performance and goal. Lee Mason has been known to go against us but this game was pushing it. Cabaye came back from injury but this was definitely not his best performance.
Losing Demba Ba and Cheick Tiote to the Africa cup of nations has been a big blow.
(Alan-Pardew- relaxing in Tenerife)
Alan Pardew obviously wasn’t thinking straight when he granted the team a mid season holiday to Tenerife which he should only do once we have won the FA cup. They will need a break now! Alan Pardew’s decision has obviously put the team off of their football and now their sights are on sun, sea and surf!
