Gunners gun down wayward Toon

Gunners gun down wayward Toon

Newcastle United were once again beaten on their own turf by Arsenal, after an appalling second-half display from the home-side.

The scoreline was 3-1, and it would be a lie if anyone said Newcastle United did not deserve it. Obafemi Martins missed a penalty in the first-half but later redeemed himself with a goal, after Nicklas Bendtnar gave the visitors the lead in the 57th minute.

Martins equalised in the less than a minute, but Arsenal's 'tactics' destroyed Newcastle's resilience, as they scored their second after injuring both Sebastien Bassong (in the first half), and Steven Taylor (in the 62nd minute). Abou Diaby was the scorer on that occasion.

With both players out of the picture, Arsene Wenger's boys added a third through Samir Nasri, effectively killing the game off.

The performance was an example of how poor a defender Fabricio Coloccini truly is. He failed to mark the scorer for the second, and third goals, and was completely clueless as to his surroundings or his marking responsibilities.

Newcastle United are now in the relegation zone, and one may consider the season over, at this point.

Teams

Newcastle United: Harper, S Taylor (Owen 64), Coloccini, Bassong (Beye 38), Jose Enrique, R Taylor, Butt, Nolan, Duff, Lovenkrands (Ameobi 79), Martins.

Arsenal: Almunia, Sagna, Gallas, Toure, Clichy, Arshavin (Song 74), Denilson, Diaby, Nasri, Van Persie, Bendtner (Eboue 89).

Completely and utterly cattled. Well done Mike Ashley for a sterling two seasons of leadership. Hopefully some of the more radged element of our support will take it upon themselves to smash Derek Llambias's face in as some light relief for our fans. As for Coloccini - the long haired clown is the perfect answer to any arguments regarding Dennis Wise being involved in club transfer policy.
