By Alan Duffy

Bordeaux 2-0 Newcastle United – Europa League – 6th December 2012

Having already qualified for the last 32 of he competition, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew could afford to rest most of his first choice stars, instead sending out an inexperienced mix-and-match side to take on Bordeaux.

Big striker Cheick Diabate was the star of the show for the home side, netting a goal in either half as the Magpies struggled to cope with his physical presence.

Nile ‘Gangsta’ Ranger made his first start for Newcastle for a year and a half while he was joined in attacked by the Fabulous Ameobi Brothers.

Anyway, for the vast majority of the game, it was the home side who dominated, with their 2-0 win ultimately sending them through to the knockout stages as group winners, with runners-up Newcastle joining them in the final 32.
