Newcastle United vs Chelsea 25 minute highlights / post match interviews

Posted on December 3rd, 2011 | 8 Comments |

Highlights of Newcastle United’s early kickoff against Chelsea, where we were desperately unlucky not to see Chelsea’s Luiz sent off in the first half.

There was also further bad luck with the Magpies losing their two main centre backs. Firstly, Captain Coloccini in the first half, then Steven Taylor later in the game; to say they will be missed would be an understatement. Judging by the post match interview with Pardew (see below) though, it seems that Taylor might be worse than Coloccini, and the permed one may not be out for too long, so fingers crossed on that one.

After Didier Drogba scored a headed goal, we then had to leave ourselves open somewhat to chase their lead, eventually going down by three goals after a deflected strike by Solomon Kalou and a third goal by Daniel Sturridge much later in in the game. We did have some chances of our own though and the three goal margin was somewhat deceptive. We were very unlucky with the Luiz decision, but we have ridden our luck sometimes this season ourselves, and I suppose that a bit of bad luck going against us had to come at some time.

Post match interviews

The Silver Supremo wasn’t too impressed with referee Mike Dean for his failure to send off Luiz. He wasn’t too pleased about losing his best two centre backs either.

  1. Having read a few thousand other match reports, I find myself strangely in agreement with the Daughter of Satan herself :)

    She writes in the Grauniad

    “If a silver lining exists it surely comes in the form of a coded warning to Mike Ashley, Newcastle’s owner. It has been rumoured that Ashley may rather fancy selling Tioté or Coloccini for big bucks next month but to do so would risk undoing much of Pardew’s inspired, yet labour intensive, training ground work”

    Nice one Louise didnt think you had it in you ?

  2. Didn’t see the full game, but it looks as though we had no luck whatsoever in that game.
    Bad decision, woodwork, injuries, down to 10 men again.


  3. big loss in colo and saylor couldnt help but feeling that an injury to the two would see problems but to have both out is just cruel, seeing that the next two games we can pick up points it will defiantly be some nervous times ahead if newcastle can work with a makeshift center back role, perch to start and kadar to come in?? or move raylor to center back and start santon on the left

  4. Santon will surely get his long awaited chance now, i’m sure he’s been working his way into the system in training.
    Isn’t Willo back too, i seem to remeber some mention last week or so saying as much. Don’t we have Tavernier too?

  5. would pardew take the chance and throw in willo hasn’t played for a while but things are looking very threadbare so risk/award if you look at it. but willo is a very good defender to back up when collo and saylor go injured but would never of thought that he would see them both injured!. good luck to him deserves his chance now
