1. Heaton 7 (kept goal confidently tonight)
2. Trippier 7 (wouldve been 8 but for poor clearance)
3. Ward 7
5. Shackell 8
6. Keane 7
4. Marney 6 (100% effort but not the influence he was on Saturday)
7. Jones 6 - bit lightweight tonight
8. Boyd -7 extra mark for goal but similar to Marney & Jones - flitted in and out of game)
9. Barnes - 7- battled hard
10. Ings- 7 - battled hard and a few touches of class
11. Arfield 6 - not back to early season form yet

subs - Juke 5 - little chance to do anything
Mee - 6 - couple of thunderous challenges - typical Mee


Good point in the end - could be ***** at the end of the season.

This was a game that Coyle's 2009 team could well have lost.

A lot of people were saying Wallace shouldve come on like Saturday to open them up. That may be the case but I think Dyche was worried that Newcastle in the second half posed a serious threat and could've gone on to win if we had removed the tackling and tracking of Arfield down

Heaton 7 Quiet night but coped with what they threw at him. No chance for the goal.
Tripper 7 Good distribution but unfortunately punished for a poor clearance.
Keane 7 Excellent distribution and took one for the team when their winger broke through.
Shackell 8 Steady as a rock
Ward 7 looked good until injured.
Boyd 7 Good goal and chased their wingers and full backs well.
Jones 6 Still holding on to the ball too long for my liking and was targeted for closing down quickly because of this.
Marney 7 - good chasing but needs to stop shooting when other options are available.
Arfield 6 - seemed to be on his heels more than once. Surprised Wallace didn't get another cameo in his place for the last 5 mins
Ings 8 Our main threat led the line well. Didn't really get any chances.
Barnes 8 MOM best game I've seen him play. Good in the air, great link up and gave their defence as much as they were dishing out.

Mee 7 settled in well quickly but as usual doesn't have the attacking threat of Ward.

Game of two halves and a point was probably fair overall with neither keeper having any real saves to make. Good to finally get out of bottom 3 especially considering where we were after the first ten games. Hopefully we can add a bit more quality in January to this squad to give us a real chance of staying up.

Heaton - 7 - Good smothering save first half and in truth wasn't tested again apart from when Cisse gave him no chance for the equaliser

Trippier - 6 - A couple of super covering challenges in the first half, but the wild shank early in the second half was well below the standard expected of a player with Premier League aspirations and his composure in possession has to improve if he wants to end up a top end Premier League player.

Ward - 7 - Thought he'd done pretty well until his injury and showed more composure than some in the second half. Hopefully its not as serious as it looked.

Keane - 6 - Looked a bit ponderous occasionally and there were inevitably mistakes occasionally, but when we reduced Newcastle to pumping longer balls forwards he looked really solid and commanding in the air.

Shackell - 9 - He and Ings are currently engaged in a private competition for player of the year. Pretty much flawless throughout.

Marney - 6 - Very good in the first half but I thought he lo

Heaton 7 - had a good game
Trippier 4 - poor tonight. Got absolutely murdered in the 2nd half. Woeful attempted clearance for their goal
Keane 5 - rarely looked comfortable, and possibly had an affect on KT
Shackell 7 - had a good game
Ward 6 - did ok before going off injured
Arfield 5 - looked off the pace all night
Marney 6 - ok, but struggling to keep the ball well in midfield at the moment
Jones 6 - as Marney
Boyd 7 - industrious as always and showed a bit of quality for the goal
Ings 7 - always bright, always looking to make something happen. We didn't get the ball to him often enough tonight
Barnes 6 - put himself about a bit, no real quality

Mee 7 - looked good

Heaton 7 - had nothing to do
Trippier 7 - bad error for goal but a good outlet throughout the game on the right.
Keane 7 - impressed generally
Shackell 8 - solid as a rock
Ward 8 - first time I've seen him in the flesh, looked very composed. Doubt well see him again for a while, praying he's okay.

Boyd 8 - incredible workrate considering his ball control. Eagles with the ball and marney without it.
Marney 7 - better first half
Jones 7 - should've buried that chance
Arfield 6 - poor tonight, did t get involved.

Barnes 8 - some excellent touches and good link up play. I think he lives playing with Ings and Boyd
Ings 8* - classy performance, so good on the ball, excellent touches. Lucky to have him.

Mee 7 - came into the game at a tough point but slotted in well.

Heaton (7) - One very sharp first-half save in another relatively quiet evening.
Trippier (6) - OK, but just OK.
Shackell (8) - Looking utterly imperious at the minute.
Keane (6) - Still learning and it shows.
Ward (6) - Looking solid enough until he had to go off.
Arfield (5) - Looked some way off the pace.
Marney (7) - Pick of the midfield.
Jones (5) - Too often either ponderous or panicky.
Boyd (6) - Good hit for the goal (aided by some iffy 'keeping), not enough else going forward.
Barnes (7) - Intermittently effective rather than a constant menace.
Ings (8) - pretty much single-handedly carrying our attacking threat.

Mee (6) - Solid enough.
Jutkiewicz - whatever he was sent on to do, he didn't manage it.

Just about held onto Newcastle's pace and movement, while not quite offering enough of our own to get more than a point.

Nice to see someone help Ings out with the goalscoring, just nee

Heston 6 not a lot to do
Trippier 6 some good attacking threat first half
Keane 5 looks shaky
Shackell 7 reliably good MOM
Ward 6 did ok until injury
Arfield 5 a bit off form and we need him back on it
Marney 6 some good play first half but need it for 90 mins
Jones 5 disappointingly off the pace again slow and backwards or sideways passing only
Boyd 7 good goal and pressing but a bit lightweight at times
Barnes 7 thought he played well tonight and was more involved although no real goal threat
Ings 7 played well

Mee 7 looked solid when on
Juke offered nothing and looks low on confidence

Fair result. We never looked like winning or adding more goals but deserved something from the game. Newcastle looked the least threatening team to visit Turf Moor so far to me.

Heaton - 7 - good game, no chance with the goal

Trippier - 4 - far too many mistakes tonight, never got to grips with Ameobi, and ultimately a moment of panic proved costly. Sure he will bounce back Saturday
Keane - 6 - thought he did ok generally then looked shaky at best once booked
Shackell - 8 - playing really well
Ward - 6 - solid as ever - hope the injury isn't too serious

Boyd - 6 - strange one. Thought he did well first half, then hardly had a meaningful touch second
Marney - 6 - ponderous at times with the ball but he is undoubtedly our engine room
Jones - 6 - again, at times ponderous but did ok
Arfield - 5 - I like Arfield but was surprised he played the full 90

Barnes - 8 - as good as I've seen him. A handful all night, good hold up and link play. Amazed he was taken off
Ings - 8* - a constant threat, assist was excellent, just got my vote

Mee - 7 - I thought he did well when he came on
Juke - 4 - we simply lost what little momentum we had when he came on - a very, very

Heaton 7 Solid. Makes few mistakes
Tripper 7 Is back to his best going forward and defending well... with the obvious exception of the mistake
Keane 6 A little loose sometimes, but will get better.
Shackell 8 The Rock
Ward 7 Has been a step up. Hope he isn't out long.
Boyd 7 Great goal and works hard
Jones 7 getting a hard rap on here but his quick link play is key for us
Marney 7 - Solid and efficient
Arfield 5- looked off the pace today.
Ings 9* Fantastic touches, Deserved better.
Barnes 8 Best I've seen him link with Ings.

Mee 7 Played well. Tough as nails but is limited distribution wise. Too one footed.
Juke NR Looks tired out after being on a couple of minutes. Time to give Sordell a chance to chase about a bit instead.

I often wonder whether it affects your opinion in a players performance given that Trippier gets such different marks.

I was sat on the BL and I thought it was one of his worst performance- and that's with not even thinking about the clearance.

Luppy
03-12-2014, 07:10 AM
I agree claret78 - taking the big mistake out of the equation, he didn't have a good game in any department. All our troubles were down our right hand side and Pardew siezed on that weakness at half time. Pretty much everything went down that side 2nd half

He will bounce back Saturday I'm sure

Heaton 7 - He's playing very well at the moment, long may it continue
Trippier 4 - Worst game for a long time. Got absoluetly murdered by Ameobi all night. At fault for their goal as well. Poor.
Keane 5 - Thought he was a "6" before his booking and a "4" after it. Panic stations after he got his yellow, don't understand why!
Shackell 8 - Great performance from the skipper
Ward 6 - Did ok, hope his injury isn't as bad as I suspect it is
Boyd 6 - Good goal, a lot of hard work, little end product
Marney 6 - Not the usual Deano performance, struggled against a good midfield pairing
Jones 6 - Decent first half, shakey second
Arfield 5 - Offered little defensively and less going forward
Ings 8 - Looking more and more like Danny from 12 months ago. Great touches, bringing people into the game, looking a threat.
Barnes 8 - Best game I've seen him have this season. Does the dirty work very well. He's not afraid to leave his foot or arm in (like most other PL teams do) and for that he offers I

trippier - 5 a bad night defensively but decent going forward

ward - 7 another good game - put in a superb block in the second half - hope the injury isn't as bad as it could have been

keane - 6 apart from a panicked 10 mins he was good again. its a steep learning curve but he's coping well.

shackell - 9 imperious

marney - 6 ok. the shot when all he need to do was dink it to the unmarked ings and barnes was pretty criminal.

jones - 7 recycles possession so well and calms us down

arfield - 4 way off the pace. presumably only stayed on the pitch for his defensive qualities, although they weren't that evident last night either.

boyd - 7 really good strike for the goal, amazing how central it was but the keeper clearly couldn't see it. other than that, he was decent enough.

ings - 8 looking right at home

barnes - 8 i just can't imagine him ever winning a header in open play but despite that he was good

Heaton 8 : Safe as safe can be.
Trippier 8 : Our main outlet and Pardew knew it.
Keane 6 : Struggled at times but only to be expected.
Shackell 9 Captain Fantastic
Ward 6 : Hope he is ok struggled with distribution
Arfield 6 : Not back to full fitness yet
Marney 8 : "The Engine"
Jones 7 : Tried hard to keep things ticking over
Boyd 8 : Hard working display as usual + great goal
Ings 9 : Worked very hard and sublime skill didn't quite come off at times but certainly our main threat. We need to keep Danny in January. He and Barnes work very very hard and their understanding is getting better.
Barnes 9 :star: : Simply superb. Won headers, held up the ball, laid it off intelligently, ran the channels and plenty of unselfish running closing down with Ings. They changed their defence to cope with him and brought Taylor on in place of Williamson as he gave him a torrid time in the first half. Taylor v Barnes was a real battle and both knew it as they shook each others hand when Barnes was su

Sick of hearing folk around me including some of my mates, saying we need to bring the Juke on and telling me Barnes is ****. What exactly does Juke bring that is better than Barnes?

Juke is poor in the air for a big lad and he never looks like getting near anything, unlike Barnes. I'm not calling Barnes a world beater by any stretch of the imagination but he's the best we have in the position currently.

Heaton 7 Did nothing wrong but then didn't have much to do!
Tripper 6 Generally got forward well but what was he doing for the goal??
Keane 6 We really missed Duff. He needs to learn where row Z is sometimes, tried to pass out of trouble when the throw in was the better option.
Shackell 8 100% our most important player most games. Didn't put a foot wrong.
Ward 7 Not sure why he is preferred to Mee though? Hope his injury isn't serious but Mee looked a good swap when he came on.
Boyd 7 Busy, frustrating at times. Looks like a match winner and took his goal well but wish he would get wider sometimes.
Jones 7 OK but not his best game for us.
Marney 7 Ditto struggled in midfield at times in second half but maybe that was down to Newcastle improving.
Arfield 6 Scotty looked off the pace and I'm surprised he stayed on. Looked short of confidence last night.
Ings 9 Class act. MOM by an absolute mile.
Barnes 8 Put in a great stint last night and we were worse after he went off. Must start

Forgot to mention in my ratings. Watched the game on tv and Williamson should have got a straight red for trying to take out Ings in the first few minutes. He led with both arms to the back of Ings head. I noticed Villa tried the same. He is a marked man is our Danny.

Heaton 7 - A couple of routine saves aside, he didn't have a lot to do

Tripper - 7 - Good first half (8), but struggled more second half (6). It was his dodgy clearance that ultimately led to the goal.

Keane 7 - Looked a lot more confident than on Saturday, but got caught out in second half when he ended up giving away a corner.

Shackell 8 - Solid defending and good distribution

Ward 6 - Did ok up until his injury

Arfield 7 - Good link up play

Marney 7 - In yer face!

Jones 7 - Got forward well but wayward with shot when played in

Boyd 7 - Goal aside (+1 point), I thought he had quite a quiet night

Barnes 7 - Excellent first half but faded second half

Ings 9 - Looks full of confidence and very sharp. MOM

Mee 7 - Nice to see his no-nonsense defending

No score for Jutkiewizc, but though he was very poor. Poor control, didn't hold the ball up and fell over a lot.

Heaton 7 - Quiet evening
Trippier 5 - Below par, what was that 'clearance' all about?
Ward 7 - Looked solid
Shackell 8* - Every bit the commanding centre half we lacked in 09/10
Keane 7 - Much more assured than against Villa
Jones 6 - Not the influence he can be
Marney 6 - Seemed too content to let Newcastle slow everything down
Boyd 6 - Phenomenal work rate, but beyond the goal offered little quality
Arfield 5 - Way below par.
Ings 8 - At the heart of everything we did well
Barnes 7 - A real nuisance. The only player to try and inject some pace & urgency into the first 30 minutes

Mee 7 - Tenacious in the tackle, lack of self belief in possession was evident

Overall Newcastle came for a point and got it. They probably deserved it on the balance of play, but we had the better chances and it's a shame we shot ourselves in the foot with some calamitous defending. Hard not to think that if we'd made more of a concerted effort to pressure Newcastle's patched up defence instead of allowin

Heaton 7 - very little to do, no chance with the goal. Kicked and handled well when called upon though.
Trippier 5 - I thought he was brilliant in the first half and twice made key interceptions. The second half was one of the worst performances I've ever seen from him - very poor indeed.
Keane 5 - Thought he struggled throughout, pulled out of position regularly (which led to Trippier bailing him out in the first half). Also seemed unsure as when to attack the ball and when to drop off. He's young though, and you can see he has some ability.
Shackell 9* - Excellent. Another to bail Keane out on more than one occasion in the second half.
Ward 6 - Just about ok, but didn't really show enough when we had the ball for me and got caught out of position very badly at one point in the first half.
Arfield 5 - Thought he was lucky to start, I think he'll be lucky to start again on Saturday. Contributed very little barring endeavour.
Marney 7 - Good energy throughout, involved in most thi

Another game I left thinking a point is a point but with the underlying feeling we should have beaten a team we looked much better than for the majority of the first half.

Hard to judge if the opposition improved that much or we went off the boil for long periods of the second half.

Heaton 6 - Didn't really much to do apart from a superb clearance first half when I think all of our players were daydreaming
Trippier 6 - Done for pace but made some good forward runs and got a few unproductive deliveries into the area.
Keane 6 - Possibly is/will be a good player but he isn't as assured looking at CH as Duff
Shackell 7* - Mr Reliable (MOM)
Ward 6 - Done for pace but stuck with it.
Arfield 5 - Was this his poorest display to date? Half a yard off things nearly all night.
Marney 6 - WYSIWYG
Jones 6 - His slowing down of play to get the ball on his left foot is predictable and the opposition know it. Should at least have hit the target following some brilliant passing interchange a

We need midfield options off the bench and quick. Arfield, Marney and Jones were all way off the mark which is unusual but SD needed OPTIONS!

Awful defending cost us 2 points, what were you trying to do Tripps ?
