The noose tightens

Ordinarily a clean sheet away immediately following a 6-0 drubbing at home would be very welcome - but not today. Paul's match report to follow, but suffice to say that that's the fifth legitimate goal that Papiss Cisse has seen ruled out this season. The news elsewhere wasn't good, with Paul Lambert victorious on his old stomping ground of Carrow Road and Wigan's Callum McManaman hell-bent on relegating us single-handedly, having maimed Massadio Haidara, scored a vital goal at home to Spurs last weekend and then the winner at West Brom today that leaves the Latics just three points behind us with a game in hand.

That Callum McManaman should of been given a ban as long as Suarez's ban at least. Ironic he has scored two important goals since THAT tackle.

As for today, Newcastle culd easily of lost it. Apart from the clearance off the line, dont think Jussi had much to do. (ball hit the post I think), West Ham had Newcastle on the ropes a couple of times.
