Pardew And Ashley Painfully Watched Stevenage Video

More news is coming though on the meeting between Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, owner Mike Ashley and Managing Director Derek LLambias, which took place yesterday regarding the Newcastle transfer targets.

Alan Pardew – watched some of Stevenage game with owner Ashley
That must have been painful

Of course the meeting, which took place after the friendly game with Hibs, is the first meeting since Newcastle had one of their worst results ever in the FA Cup.

And certainly one of the most embarrassing results since Ashley bought the Newcatsle club 43 months ago.

The three of them are said to have watched parts of the game against Stevenage on video , and we have to think that must have been painful for all three, but especially for new manager Pardew.

We assume the owner was able to tell Alan how disappointed he was at the terrible and inept Newcastle display – or words to that effect. 😀

You hardly like to see the club you own in headlines around the world of how a fourth division English side beat the famous Newcastle United – do you?

Even if Newcastle were short of 7 first teamers, the Newcastle players should always do a lot better than that, especially in the category of effort and guts.

Newcastle have played much like Blackpool over these last 18 months, since the relegation and since Chris Hughton was put in charge, , but their fight and endeavor was certainly missing against Stevenage.

This may be turn out a hard long January for Newcastle fans, and of course it could be that the right players are just not available, and as long as we don’t lose any of our players in January, we suppose we could survive through the end of the season.

However, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if Sol Campbell moved out, and there is even news today that rock-bottom West Ham may be interested in taking the player for a nominal fee.

But it’s always nice to have one or two players come in to freshen up the squad, especially if they look to be excellent buys.

The news today that Newcatsle may be interested in Adam Lallana seems promising, as we’ve heard already from one or two Southampton supporters and they say the lad is a very good player in the making.

Here’s hoping Newcastle can get at least a couple of players in during this window, and sooner rather than later.

Comments always welcome, but please respect other readers’ opinions.

    Mike will have seen that after our first 11 we only have 2 or 3 that can step up. It’s not enough as we need 6 or 7, and we need additions quickly. A wide man and a left back please Mike

    I hope that our clueless leaders Messrs Llambsarse and FatAsh, turn to Pardew during the vidoe nasty, and ask ‘so tell me Alan, why did we put on our most effective, albeit tired and slightly injured Chieck Tiote, when we were two goals down and needing to score twice? If he was fit, why did he not start? Why did you not choose players who were not injured or tired? Why Alan, why?

    to be perfectly honest, i didnt care in the slightest about the FA cup our priority is staying in the league wgich we seem to be doing well at the minute but the leagues tight and if we dont pick up a few more points and others start to pick a few up we’ll be in the pappa. i personally reckon the way pardue talked about 3 or 4 signings before the stevenage match was mike ashley bascily saying if we stay in the cup you can have more players if not you dont need them thats why we suddenly only seem to be after one player at the most 2 but MA watching this video he should clearly see that we need a bit more depth to allow sufficient coverage for league games and also allowing the younger lads to go off out on loan playing week in and week out.

    Painful yes but it has to be shown obviouslly this was an example of “Lack Of Depth” and showing this to the board and owner will give what Pardew wants more meaning, if he shows WHY he needs this backup player or why we want a player which we lacked in that and other games.

    Hopefully a topic was about Demba Ba, i mean COME ON watch his Youtube comp video upped a few days back showing all his goals for Hoff he is an amazing player who can be LOANED with view to buy for £5 Million, Strong poweful and quick and can be a winger/striker. and also El-Arabi or Gradel would be another good buy i would be dissapointed if all we sign is Larsson (squad) and maybe a loanie like Ziani. there is BETTER options its not like El/Gradel/Ba is NOT FOR SALE OR HARD TO BUY.

    My views for the transfer window are the following
    we need exciting younger players but also need experience to bring the younger ones through.
    Are squad at the moment is full of championship players at there best so now is the right time to off load them and reinvest in the squad.

    Sol Campbell – Release
    Danny Guthrie – £2.5m
    Tim Krul £6.5m – sorry lads and lasses a just dont rate him at all prefere to have forster as back up.
    James Perch – £1.5m
    Alan Smith -£3.5m
    Jonas Gutierez – £4.5m
    Xisco – £2m
    Leon Best – £1m

    8 Players Out – estimation of £230k a week off the wage bill
    Total = £21.5m

    Players In
    Jonathan Woodgate – £1.5m maximum as injuries occur, but 100x better than campbell.
    Adam Hamill – £1.5m
    Matt Phillips – £1.5m
    Charlie Austin – £2m
    Giovani Dos Santos – £3m
    Seb Larrson – £1.5m

    6 players in – estimated £105k a week wages
    TOTAL = £11M








    Barton/Dos Santos/Hamill


    Ben Arfa/Phillips/Lua-Lua



    What do yous reckon ?

    woodgate is finished, we’ll 1 maybe 2 players in maximum and probably not for much cash. We’ve been linked with half of southampton but don’t see that happening.

    MA & DL have more confidence in AP than they did in CH. So, the video review had to be a chance for AP to explain the lead up and actual playing of the match.

    If MA brought the tape, he had to be asking about the players faces and posture as they came onto the pitch. He had to ask about no change in strategy as the game progressed. Maybe he even asked why a partially crocked Tiote could even get into the game. AP could have been saying that he now knows certain players can not carry their weight at NUFC and should go. We can all hope it was a candid and productive session that will lkead to new players on the pitch either homegrown or brought in.

    Adam Hammill

    Seems like a decent player and in cockney fat boy’s price range too with a clause in his contract at 500k.

    Looks like Blackpool are in for him.

    What do you think?
