Newcastle United vs Wigan Athletic: Long match highlights and post match interviews.

Posted on October 22nd, 2011 | 12 Comments |

Highlights of the game, where 4th placed Newcastle United were given a surprisingly close game by 19th placed Wigan Athletic. Only one good finish, from Yohan Cabaye in the 81st minute, seperated the two sides by the final whistle. For my my collegue Hugh’s full match report on the game, click here.

The match highlights have now been updated with the 12 ones from a certain football highlights show.

Alan Pardew post match interview

Newcastle United’s Silver Supremo, Alan Pardew, hails “lovely lad” Yohan Cabaye for getting his first goal for Newcastle United and grabbing three points for us in a fairly tight game. He also describes today’s performance from his team as “Light Ale” football rather than “Champagne football”, which was largely true. However it’s another three points in the bag anyway so Howay the lads!

NB: If you are having trouble playing the Alan Pardew video, and you just get a big grey patch instead of the man himself, then click on that and at least the audio will play. Alternatively, click this link. Divven’t knaa what the problem is.

  1. takes a lot of convincing for fans to warm to pardew but now his name is been sung! credit to pardew cant deny

  2. I dont think we could ask for better. We are well prepared for the possiblly bad month of November and could well find ourselves in a position of still being top 5 after having played the Big 3.

  3. With a quarter of the season gone I have (with sober judgement) concluded that with his first goal for us Yohan Cabaye has set his mark on this team and could very well become one of our all time greats!
    Early days, yes, but I’ve seen many good players in B&W and this one is pure class – and will get even better.

  4. I’m curious to see who he puts out on wednesday. Kinda hoping to see Obertan and Best in that lineup.

    “I’m curious to see who he puts out on wednesday. Kinda hoping to see Obertan and Best in that lineup.”

    Because you want to see Marveaux and Ben Arfa in the Premiership Tripp?

  6. Worky (AKA Little ray of sunshine) – “The only thing that matters in the Premiership is how we do over 38 games”.
    Well, I know what you mean mate, but it’s not a grocers’ shop I love, it’s a passion for a football team in my blood. I for one do not want a fairly good, reasonably interesting team that survives every season, at the end of which I can say “yes, they did OK again over 38 games”.
    I live for times like this!
    In 50-odd seasons I’ve seen precious few of them.
    But there have been great times, the ones I look back on with pride & joy. And we have had more than our share of rubbish – but I still recall them with a kind of wistful fondness.
    But what I never ever do is look back and think “well
    what matters is how we did over 38 games”.

    So, keep yer feet still worky hinny, let’s be happy while we can, for we may not be so happy in the spring, and divn’t drive me bonnie dreams away!


  7. I think the Toon in general have surprised alot of people from pundits to fans so far this season.
    My personal view is the team seems to seem much more committed for whole matches unlike seasons gone by where we would concede silly goals and throw points away.
    One gripe yesterday was some poor passing and with a bit more precision we could have seen off Wigan more easily.
    Happy with a 1-0 be interesting to see how we strengthen in the January window.

  8. Well maiga on way in january jus need to search for couple CB as believe colo cud be on way to liverpool. Carnt see MA spendin alot again bt if pardwho speaks up i believe he will gt us what we want:
