Dreadful Officials Cost Newcastle Dear Against Sunderland

To blame the officials exclusively would be unfair. Pardew was caught with his pants down and Il Duce's straight arm salute scored a direct hit on Pard's exposed rear.

The game was a Keystone Kops affair with more errors than an average Geordie's GCSE English script, and neither team seemed to understand that it is within the rules to pass a ball to a player in your own team. Every time a player received the ball, he ran with it. It was absurd. It was laughable. It was school boy stuff. Talk about headless chickens, this lot made Carlton Palmer look like Glenn Hoddle!

Mind you, the players were superstars compared to the two "assistant" referees. Newcastle had a perfectly legitimate equalising goal disallowed for offside, with the "assistant" a good yard and a half behind the play. Had that goal stood, Newcastle would probably have won the game.

Then there was Taylor's booking when the brilliant Mignolet dived on a loose ball that the Newcastle man was already committed to challenging for. Full marks to the keeper for his bravery but I'm not sure what Taylor was expected to do - apart from defy the laws of physics!

But there was still time for more Thomasin foolery when the little woman with the flag forgot to wave it when Sunderland scored a clearly offside goal. Well, what woman has ever managed to get her pretty little head around the offside law? It's a good job messers Gray and Keys weren't in the Sky Sports commentary team!

How serious is the injury to Krul? That could prove a huge loss for Newcastle. And how many chances does Cisse need before he scores? Amazing!

  1. Utterly clueless. Almost as bad as the officials.
    You are right about all 3 decisions, and also missed the penalty that newcastle should have had straight after Sunderland scored, but appear not to have noticed 2 blatant penalties for Sunderland and the fact that Gouffran should definitely have been send off in 1st half.
    The best side clearly won. Live with it.

  5. Come on you delusional twonks. The barcode skunks should have been 5 down if the pens had been given. The self proclaimed champions of the Northeast, England and the universe have been shown again to be a mediocre club. get real

    1. don't wet yourself cos you won a game through bad decisions and catching Newcastle after a tiring game on Thursday.
      You would be lower in the league than Reading if it wasn't for your only good player Mignolet. You win 3-0 and he is man of the match says it all

  6. agree completely. 1-1 and its a different game, at that point 70% possession for newcastle. still the toon team should not have let heads drop when the mistake was made. 3 brilliant strikes from the sunderland goalscorers but any neutral could see who were the better team for next season.

  7. Sunderland were incontestably the better team. I agree the offside call was wrong but, as others have pointed out, Webb was exceptionally kind to NUFC in the first half. He does seem to like Taylor a lot - seeing a non-existent foul by Sess when a goal was likely, missing the blatant tug at Graham's shirt and going (rightly) for yellow, not red, for the assault on Mignolet. Having of course, fallen for the Taylor dive in 2009. Good ref but his decisions yesterday did NOT cost NUFC; they spared them heavier defeat. Oh, and Sess was the man of the match.
