The Magpies surged ahead courtesy of a wonderful opener from the Frenchman, but had to battle for a share of the spoils after Luis Suarez had levelled and visiting captain Fabricio Coloccini had seen red.

"It was a good point from a very hard and difficult away game," Cabaye told Newcastle's official website in the aftermath.

"In the first 10 minutes they put us under a lot of pressure but we stayed solid and they didn't have a really good chance to score.

"It was really important that we didn't concede early on because it meant we stayed in the game.

"After 20-25 minutes we kept the ball better, played in their half and had a few chances before my goal.

"Going in 1-0 up at half-time was great, but the goal we conceded in the second half we could have done much better with. However, a point here is a good point."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
