City League happened United Newcastle

And with that, this MBM powers down. A good point for both teams, though Newcastle came so close to snatching all three. Hope to see you again for tonight’s Chelsea-Arsenal game!

A much happier Neil Warnock speaks! “I think sometimes you don’t get what you deserved. But if that penalty went in, it would have been a double whammy. Kenedy shouldn’t have been on the pitch really. And the decision was borderline as well. But I was pleased with the lads, delighted with the fans, it’s good to be back at home. It was poetic justice, the miss, given the lad who was taking it. The least we deserved was a point. It was pleasing. I thought Hayden’s challenge was a red card. In fairness to the referee, I didn’t see Kenedy’s kick-out, I never saw it so you can’t complain. We’ve got to work hard on the training ground, we can do better in the last third.”

Rafa Benitez, not in the best of moods, talks to Sky Sports. “It was a difficult game. We had some problems in the right-back position. The designated penalty taker was Matt Ritchie, but he was not on the pitch, and Kenedy was second. I do not want to talk about the referee. I saw a lot of things, but I do not want to talk about the referee. It is a pity, but we were fighting with ten men, so we must be happy with a point. We have to move forward. We had to defend well, and take our chances, but we didn’t do it. The team got a point in a difficult situation.”

Ben Fisher was at the Cardiff City Stadium. He didn’t see any goals, but there was plenty to talk about in his match report nonetheless. Here’s his take.

Should Jonjo Shelvey have taken the ball off Kenedy for that late penalty, given how badly the Brazilian was playing, and how poor his free kick had been moments before? The two players certainly looked at each other. But on Sky, Craig Bellamy argues that Kenedy was almost certainly the designated penalty taker, and that Shelvey would have been risking the wrath of Rafa had he intervened; Bellamy recalls how he was once fined by Benitez for taking the ball off the named penalty taker while at Liverpool. The best laid plans, etc.

For a goalless draw, that was great fun. Cardiff were probably the better side; in Josh Murphy they certainly boasted the man of the match. And Newcastle were very fortunate to swerve two red cards in the first half, Kenedy kicking out, Javi Manquillo repeatedly tugging at Murphy’s shirt. But on the flip side, they held Cardiff at bay, keeping their shape for the most part, even when Isaac Hayden saw red. You could argue that Hayden was unlucky to see yellow, while Harry Arter could easily have walked. And they did come closest to scoring, earning a penalty kick, even if Kenedy wasted it. You can probably slice that little lot any way you want, but a draw seems fair enough, now it’s all come down. Both teams are now up and running in the 2018-19 Premier League, anyway, so everyone’s got something to take home with them.

FULL TIME: Cardiff City 0-0 Newcastle United

And that’s the final act of the game! Both teams have their first point of the season. That was scrappy yet entertaining. Neil Warnock is all smiles; Rafa Benitez less so. But on balance, a deserved draw.

90 min +6: Kenedy sends the penalty straight at Etheridge! That’s awful! Cardiff will be happy he escaped that first-half red card now.
