    “The owner has a good feeling to take the club forward”.

    I hope he has.

    BlacknWhite Barmy – that’s because we’re not a top team…….. yet. 😉

    Yet…. is correct because if we continue our trent of selling our talent we wont be. Nervy kind of game, but we did what we had to do grind out a win.

    I see Wolfsburg in Bundesliga lost again! They’re teetering on the brink of the relegation play-off place, going into their final game, only scraping out of it on goal difference and automatic relegation by a point.

    I’d be straight in for Diego if they fail to survive!

    giimps – lol nice 1. Great result today and their goalkeeper was man of the match! I am glad Pardew says we need to sign players with flair and that he recognizes that now and not later (although it’s bloody obvious).

    Ed how about an article on what Llambias said about the fans after jeering Judas??? It should be an interesting debate.

    We’re safe at last!!! Howay The Lads!!!! 😀

    ‘Collocini has been our best defender.’ Nice! good way to keep Enrique happy. Enrique has been our best defender this year and best player with Tiote by an absolute mile!

    Sir Alan – What about Barton and Nolan ?

    It’s a pity Best got injured when he did as he was on fire! After a run of games Best really impressed and had some fancy touches and was unlucky to get a few goals chalked off for wrong offside decisions. With a few additions in attack and cover in our fullback positions and we’ll be cruising next season. Just to think we still have Ben Arfa and Gosling to play for us again. I am really excited and relieved we finally are officially safe and can focus on next season and the future of this great club 🙂

    Howay The Lads!!!

    Lets sign/loan some of Man City rejects (however they are on high wages):

    1) Adam Johnson
    2) Milner – he look unhappy last night, lack of games.
    3) SWP
    4) Onuaha – lets fight with Sunderland for him, good young player

    Is it just me, or did he say “Arsenal won too easily against us the other week”?

    @Sir Alan: It’s quite obvious that he was talking about central defenders, not the defensive unit.

    @Brutoon: Agreed. Weren’t we in for Onuaha?

    Would prefer Micah Richards over Onuoha, seems to be better. Both of them would be cheap ones.

    As mentioned, Adam Johnson would be excellent. Everybody knows he supports NUFC, but he’s currently playing quite often at City, so I doubt our chances in getting him.

    If not Johnson, then Diego Perotti from Sevilla. More spanish speakers we get, more happy our current spanish speakers would be, like Enrique.

    Pards should also ask availability of PVA and Sturridge. Sturridge has proven himself at Bolton, but Chelsea has so many many good strikers, so I doubt he has future there.

    I think Pardew did well this season, honestly I didn’t believe that we would finish so high on the table after CH’s sacking. He deserves credit.

    Agree, we are not top teams those.

    Still we could’ve and had to score more. Lack of tactics I think. Playing against 10 needs to be more open or much faster, as we do not have fast players except Guti and em… I guess that’s it, we cannot play fast football, so the second option then.

    But if you check the game. We didn’t have control of the ball for more then 2 mins straight. At the end not even 60 seconds. A proffesional team, that it’s value is around, I don’t know…50M, right? (Tiote, Jose, Guti, Barton, Krul, Saylor, Colo) can’t pass and control the ball and pitch for the last 5 mins of the game straight to KO the other team. We gave them the ball like 3-4 times in the last 10 mins of the game.

    So yeah, we are not a top team, but there is a problem in tactics or mentality when a team cannot control the ball for more then 2 mins straight without loosing it, long balling it, crossing it to nowhere etc.

    Beats me why players cannot do that, I blame it on the tactics. If a manager says to his professional team – keep the ball, pass it around, I want to see 15-20 passes in a minute, don’t let them touch the ball, make them run, make then tired, they will do that, no? So I blame the coaches and the manager for that.
