Cheick Tiote: Upset by the manner of Newcastle's 2-1 defeat at Stoke

The Magpies have not registered a win in seven outings in all competitions in November and the reverse at the Britannia Stadium was a fourth straight in the Premier League.

The manner of the defeat was particularly galling for the visitors, with Stoke scoring twice in the last 10 minutes to negate Papiss Cisse's opener.

But Tiote was able to take some solace in the performance from his team-mates.

He told the club's official website: "This was so difficult for the team to take.

"We played well and were the better team on the pitch. We tried to pass the ball well and scored the first goal, but after that we were unlucky because it was two sloppy goals that cost us the game.

"Everyone is very disappointed, but we were much brighter than we have been recently and had more energy on the pitch.

"If you play well like we did, then you expect to win the game, so if we continue to play like this, we will get three points again very soon."

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
