Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle United match highlights and match facts.

Posted on September 21st, 2011 | 61 Comments |

Match highlights from yesterday evening’s nailbiting 3-4 thriller against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup.

Features two goals from Peter Lovenkrands. The first featuring an astounding pass from comeback kid, Hatem Ben Arfa, and a pretty tidy assist from his French compadre Sylvain Marveaux too. The third was an almost certain cross which ended up in the goal from Danny Simpson, and finally, the “Coup de grâce” in the dying seconds of extra time from the head of Captain Coloccini.

Also features the three Nottingham Forest goals from Finley, Derbyshire and Tudgay.

Apologies for the slightly wobbly nature of the videocam highlights. As you probably know, TV coverage of this game was none existent so it’s a case of “any port in a storm” this time. I will keep my eyes peeled, and should anyhting better show up, I will replace it. Thanks by the way to ironically named site user, “Free Scoring Smudge” for pointing this out.

  1. Marveaux looked excellent in the brief moments he was on the telly and Obertan’s cross really was an excellent bit of skill. Simpson’s cross turned goal was, well, vital. Glad we won and glad no one was broken.

    “BTW, didn’t sammyobi make it on late?”

    Aye Tripp, yer not rang there like. He came on same time as his brother in place of Ben Arfa (70 mins), but the Nottingham Forest site I checked seemed to have missed it out.

    Corrected now.

  3. Morning peeps, Sunny Cyprus here. Got to say I detest radio only coverage but any port in a storm eh !. In the end I got it on the BBC red button . Jeez, I hate it. Having now seen some highlights, you have to ask yourself, where was the defense. Back on the positive, the boys done good considering that a lot of them were infill but aquitted themselves, for the most part, quite well.
    From what I heard, Marveaux is surely one to watch for the rest of the season. On to saturday and Blackburn. We will undoubtedly have a much stronger back 4 in place and I see us taking the points either 2-0 or 3-1. Lets hop for a kind draw in the next round. HWTL.

  4. Great result, another game that we could have lost, but we just kept on going. Well done to the toon “B” team…and Pardew!

  5. So happy with the ‘boys’. People will probably complain about conceeding 3 goals against a team at the poo end of the championship but you have to remember that there was 9 changes to our side starting against villa.

    After all its always cup matches where crazy things happen and lower teams go all out. Well done to forest I say!

    When obertan came to newcastle I had high hopes for him but In all his games his balls in haven’t been up to scratch so I’m really glad he got the assist for captain Colo! That’ll be a big confidence boost for the lad.

  6. 3 years Three 4-3′s

    Notts forrest

    Knocked out in the next round in 2 previous years

    What NXT ;-)

  7. “When you make nine changes you know the team will be slightly dysfunctional” – then what is the point?
    Doesn’t NUFC want to win this cup?
    I do! It’s our best chance of winning enything!
    OK, the fashion set by manure, arsenal, chelski etc makes it cool to replace some megarich superstars with others because their priority is mid-week money spinning european matches – but what’s our priority? Safety?
    Or is this just managerial fantasy football – look at me, I’m one of the big boys! Bullsit!
    Making nine changes is disrespectful to all fans who want to see NUFC play in a cup-tie, and an insult to those fans who have supported this club for decades and dearly want us to win a trophy!
    OK – we won, just! The lads showed guts & I’m impressed – well done!
    But I fell cheated and conned by a cynical and misguided club policy.

    But I look forward eagerly to the draw – because like all supporters we put up with crap year after year following our beloved team! NUFC and its supporters deserve better!


  8. I was surprised by the 9 changes to be honest as I am sure partridge was taking this competition really seriously for a change.
    This is so winnable with as bit of luck in the drawer but I would be picking my best team for these games.
    I want this trophy Partridge!!

  9. I understand your feelings Supermac but maybe this gives Pardwho a nudge in the right direction as far as future teams and formations go ?

    4 goals, albeit against Forest, is no bad response to changing the dreaded 4-4-2. Marveaux is a much better option than Obertan IMO and any one of four could play on the other wing then you only have to choose one forward to lead the line and drop HBA in behind.

    Same footage without the unique commentary but erm, aaah, urm interviews at the end.

  10. Bring on Blackburn!
    We have the players for a 4-1-3-1-1 that can take 14 points from the next six matches –

    Blachburn (3)Wolverhampton (1)Tottenham (3)Wigan (3)Stoke (1)Everton (3)


    Simpson Saylor Colo Raylor
    Marveaux Cabaye Jonas

    best line up we’ve had for years! Young, fast & with guts.


  11. I’ve changed the highlights for some steadier ones now, though sadly, these ones don’t have the rather blunt Geordie commentator on them. They do have a short interviews with Pardew and Schteve McClaren on the end though.

    Thanks for pointing that out BTW Andy.

  12. any news on santon and his troublesome knee/leg, just thinking might not be straight forward just taking fluid out is it!.

  13. supermac,
    i’m sure we’ll play a more ‘competitive’ team when we get a more , er, competitive team to play, if ya’ get me.
    Some of these lads do need the odd game to get into the groove & so long as we win…& like Andy says, get to try a new form or 2.
    We need all the ‘B’ team players up & at it, so maybe the risk worked this time.
    It’s a balancing act, between, giving players minutes & not thrashing regulars.
    Good to see Marveaux, Gosling, Obertan get more time.
    Plus bed in a few younger & less played lads i.e. Sammiobi, Perch, Lovenkrands (2 goals) & most of all HBA get 70 mins.
    We also blooded Elliot & Abeid.
    Not a bad work out all round really, a lot of work covered & we still won.
    Off for a lie down now.

    “any news on santon and his troublesome knee/leg, just thinking might not be straight forward just taking fluid out is it!.”

    nufc337, Last thing was Pardew saying everything was fine, not a cartilage injury, amount of fluid the size of a pea extracted, gannin’ oot for a light trot on it and may not be any need for surgery, could be back sooner than expected etc etc. You may have seen that already but that was the last I saw more or less and I keep checking.

    “Santon may be fit for the game after blackburn, apparently.”

    Aye Clint, he’s gannin’ to be fed to the Wolves!

    “WT there may be longer highlights on this tonight. I’ll “record” them if they’re any better than the current clips.”

    Thanks Andy. I’m pretty sure that they will be better.

  17. Aye,
    there’s ‘the league cup’ show on bbc the neet, not sure how much time will be dedicated to us mind.

  18. CLiNT FLiCK says:
    September 21, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    “At least he shouldn’t come into ‘contact’ with karl ‘hacker’ henry.”

    Aye nothing to worry about Clint. It’ll be Ben Arfa coming up against Karl ‘Killer’ Henry more than Santon. :lol:

  19. CLiNT FLiCK @ 21 2:38 pm supermac, “Not a bad work out all round really, a lot of work covered & we still won”.
    Excellent points – but it was close, we are having a fantastic run of over-due luck at the moment (eg Perch’s wonder goal) and long may it continue.
    So I’ll settle for being happy & over cautious this time, but I remember winning the FA cup in the ’50s and just want us to pull out all the stops for another victory parade – what a day that would be.
    I’ve got a feeling our name’s on that cup – but only if we respect it and take it seriously!


  20. supermac,
    aye it was too close mate.
    I’m certainly not knocking you mate.
    I wasn’t even here (alive) when we won the fa cup, so it would be a first for me.
    No one can accuse me of being a glory hunter at least.

    “I’ve got a feeling our name’s on that cup – but only if we respect it and take it seriously!”

    Pardew’s says he’s using the bairns until we get a couple more victories in the Premiership supermac.

  22. CLiNT FLiCK & workey “Pardew’s says he’s using the bairns until we get a couple more victories in the Premiership supermac”.
    Well, I said in an earlier post that our next 6 games are winable – so I’ll had me gob & see what Pardew does, I have been slow to warm to him but now I can’t really fault his performance so far this season. If we get 14 (or even 12) points from these next games then he’ll be a hero!
    I’m not keen on playing 4-4-2 with our forwards, and I don’t like weakened teams in winable cup-ties – but it is working for him, so we should just let him get on with the job.


  23. I say let some of the bairns play. Maybe not 5 at a time, but we need to keep first teamers as fit as possible for the league, which has to be our top priority.

  24. supermac,
    i’m not keen on the old 442 either mate.
    We’ve got a bunch of decent midfielders now & we should utilize that.
    The next bunch of games are indeed winnable, but you know what that means with Newcastle?

  25. It a tough ask to expect him to just throw newbies & bairns into a prem match, so it does make some sense to blood a few in a cup game v lower league oppo like.
    But like Tripp says, not too many at once.
    We only have limited opportunities to try stuff/players.
    Marveaux looks ready for 1st team games like.

  26. Tripp says “the league, which has to be our top priority”.
    OK, fair enough. But look at it this way = shouldn’t a successful club be our top priority? Including all competitions, over a whole season.

    In the PL, we are not going to win it are we? We have been 2nd 3rd 4th 5th & 6th in the past (much good it did us), but not this year. Looking at the league we should finish 7th-10th which represents progress & stability.

    Whereas in the cup we are three games from wembley! = success! And the rest of the season to concentrate on the league.

    Think about it. In my opinion its worth it.


  27. Clint flick – yes Marveaux looks the business –

  28. supermac,

    it’s a fine line mate.
    Brum & boro before them have actually won the c cup then been relegated in the same season.
    I’m sure that isn’t lost on AP.

  29. Dunno how winnable the carling cup really is. Sure the biggest sides tend to view it as good match fitness for fringe players, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy matches. I’m more worried about squad depth at key positions.

  30. BTW,
    i’d just like to say Notts Forest give a right go last night after a dismal start to their season.
    They played well & pushed us to the final seconds of the game. Aye, we made a couple of defensive ricks & we had a under strength team out there.
    But well done to them.
    I’m sure their season will pick up after that showing.
    hard luck lads!

    “Dunno how winnable the carling cup really is.”

    Bormingham City won it last time Tripp.

    Last time we won a major trophy, it was broadcast in black and white and Bobby Moncur was captain.

    He’s a pensioner now.

    “He’s a pensioner now
    so am I”

    Aye I knaa supermac. I remember you back in the ‘seventies when you had those git big sideburns! :lol:

  33. Worky, true, but prior to that it seems like the bigger clubs were winning it. It all comes down to a few lucky results. Some stronger sides going out early or drawing each other and thus one is guaranteed to go out. It’s a nice way to get to Europe, but given the thinness of our squad in some key positions, I’m not sure I want the extra games.

  34. Wow, I waited nearly an hour hoping to see proper highlights of our game on the League Cup show and all we get is those goals. Whereas the top 5 all got theirs. The BBC pisses me off sometimes.

    So did I Phisix.

  36. Phisix @55
    well at least we weren’t last, and isn’t to good to see that nice boy owen do so well!
    Colo set a real skipper’s example being up there in the last seconds – mind I’d have had a heart attack if he had tried it early on.

  37. BBC Sport website has a slightly longer version than the programme but not much more “action”.


  38. I do accept as true with all the concepts you have offered in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
