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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
