    I know it’s a friendly and all, but our passing ahas been atrocious.

  • 2 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:47 AM

    Alan Shit Smith – our 60k per week CHEERLEADER

  • 3 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:48 AM

    Tiote looks lost as AM

  • 4 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:49 AM

    where has danishmag gone? off to take another line of the devil’s dandruff?

  • 5 2 AMEOBI'S // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:49 AM

    didnt realise tiote was attacking mid, think pards has sun stroke

  • 6 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:49 AM

    Tiote hasn’t passed to a team mate yet has he?

  • 7 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:51 AM

    He had a beauty of a pass to Orlando’s defence, boater.

  • 8 gibbotwg // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:51 AM

    It’s hard to tell which team is the premier league team here.

  • 9 Spike // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:51 AM

    I’ve got to admit that when the new kit came out I didn’t like it, but seeing them in it makes them look a bit beefy, like a psycological advantage against the opposition.

    Shame it isn’t working

  • 10 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:51 AM

    Well he’s not but he is compared to 3rd cb smith. We’ve been sloppy as hell so far

  • 11 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:52 AM

    Oh I saw him pass to Smudge earlier. Then Smudge passed back to Tioté, then Tioté kind of said “No, I gave it to you” then passed back, then Smudge passed back to Tioté and then he got annoyed and gave the ball away.

    Was a good laugh.

  • 12 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:53 AM

    @11 haha! Gosling has stuck to the right well. Loven touch still poor

  • 13 Spike // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:54 AM

    And Orlando are the equivalent of what? Leyton Orient sort of standard?

  • 14 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:54 AM

    Tiote is a defensive midfield, stupid alan pardew to put smith as a Defensive Midfield (which he never is even in 10000 years)

  • 15 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:54 AM

    How have the lads forgot how too play football this is awful.

  • 16 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:55 AM

    What a pass!, Straight to their keeper..

  • 17 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:55 AM

    Abysmal passing and ‘controlling of the game’, thus far.

  • 18 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:57 AM

    we look very slow even for a pre season game

  • 19 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:57 AM

    all of our players looked nackered already.. not sure we will get many fit players out of this game

  • 20 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:57 AM

    Who is that on the left wing who keeps losing the ball? it aint jonas ,unless he’s had a radical summer barnet.. I can only make out tiote, collo and lovenk

  • 21 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:57 AM

    Get in there Cheik mate!

  • 22 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:58 AM

    tiote AM?

  • 23 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:58 AM

    @boater: Jonas I think, he just has his hair tied back.

  • 24 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:59 AM

    Why on Earth did Lover take that free kick?

  • 25 mashearer // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:59 AM

    can someone tell me the position of each player please..all i can see is best and lovo are up front and forster is the keeper

  • 26 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:59 AM

    worst freekick ive ever seen haha

  • 27 Toon XI // Jul 24, 2011 at 12:59 AM

    I think our A-Team won in Holland today and the reserves are playing Orlando.

  • 28 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:00 AM

    Lovenkrands=not a freekick specialist?

  • 29 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:00 AM

    is that gosling or smith in the middle?

  • 30 gorskino10 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:00 AM

    We looks terrible,watching also Everton vs DC they look by far better.

    We all look tired, our attack dont look interested in this game, the passing has been very poor.
    Still no Shot on target and with our attack dont look likely. Enrique looks close to coming on.

  • 31 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:00 AM

    Gosling is on the right, Jack.

  • 32 toon_auz // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:01 AM

    HBA or Marv would have buried that!

  • 33 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:01 AM

    Smith in middle Gosling rm

  • 34 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:01 AM

    Jonas left Gosling right

  • 35 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:01 AM

    boater
    is tavernier

  • 36 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:01 AM

    woho a stream !!

  • 37 gorskino10 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:02 AM

    ANOTHER Injury, this time to Ryan Taylor, Tav goes to RB, Jose on LB.

    4 Injuries in 3 games thus far.

  • 38 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:02 AM

    Forster,
    Tavernier, Saylor, Colo, Raylor
    Gosling, Smith, Tiote, Jonas
    Lover, Best

    That’s how we line up. Gosling and Jonas seem to be switching flanks, though and it looks like

  • 39 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:02 AM

    @masher

    GK: FORSTER
    RB: R.TAYLOR
    CB: S.TAYLOR
    CB: COLLO (C)
    LB: ENRIQUE
    RM: GOSLING
    CM: SMITH
    CM/CAM: TIOTE
    LM: JONAS
    ST: LOVENKRANDS
    ST: BEST

  • 40 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:02 AM

    Ah didn’t see the sub. Jose on LB apparently.

  • 41 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:03 AM

    Lovenkrands is mega pants,

  • 42 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:03 AM

    Ah aye of course.. cheers Kris.

  • 43 2 AMEOBI'S // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:04 AM

    have i got the rite game lads a think am watching gateshead vs spartans

  • 44 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:04 AM

    Raylor off for Enrique

  • 45 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:04 AM

    shiny head. Very nice but i’d rather see the game!

  • 46 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    we defo need a striker!

  • 47 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    ha ha lad in the purple shirt… monster.

  • 48 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    just hope tavernier stakes a claim with a good performance

  • 49 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    why isn’t ba or marv playing ?

  • 50 mashearer // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    thanks..but i sure hope that isnt jonas on the left because he is awful

  • 51 Toon1978 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    Shot on f…ing goal would be nice.

  • 52 Klatoon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    I think the quality of the pitch is affecting the players

  • 53 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    is tavernier left footed?

  • 54 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    Missed the sub… there was no sound to tell me somethiing had happenned

    I reckon pardew has ordered the lads to go down “injured” in a desperate attempt to get cashley to buy more players….im hoping…

  • 55 mashearer // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    he means whoever playuing in the left right now

  • 56 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    What about that for cameraman. Just followed the ball when proly should have just kept it on the foul scene. Really pleased they’re putting it up for us to watch. High fives to Orlando.

  • 57 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    Andy haha

  • 58 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    Klatoon is AP

  • 59 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    sweedish Ba is on the bench dont know whats wrong with marveuax

  • 60 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:07 AM

    Foster looks shite flaps at everything that comes his way

  • 61 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:07 AM

    does anyone know if this pitch has undersoil heating fitted?

  • 62 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:07 AM

    @BigKirky: I think his bairn is a ball boy.

  • 63 gorskino10 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:08 AM

    Seems from what Lee says Jose Enrique will be subbed at HF :S

  • 64 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:08 AM

    @boater: I doubt it, it’s not grass.

    Glad people are starting to agree with me regarding Forster. He’s simply not good enough – local lad or not.

  • 65 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:08 AM

    Puttting Tiote as a Attacking Midfielder is equivalently stupid like

    Putting MESSI as a Right Back

    OR

    C Ronaldo as a Centre Back

  • 66 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:09 AM

    tav goin right!

  • 67 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:09 AM

    Tiote is his usual dominating self. Him and cabaye R gonna be mint with Barton and Ben magic man arfa

  • 68 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:10 AM

    ANY1 GOT ANY SOUND YET??

  • 69 AmericanMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:10 AM

    Nice kick by that coach. lol

  • 70 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:11 AM

    JackButler ok

  • 71 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:11 AM

    @Kirky: Depends if HBA can stay fit. I’m a bit concerned by his ankle like. Reckon his break was worse than we thought – and we knew it was bad.

    @Ross: there is no sound, deal with it.

  • 72 2 AMEOBI'S // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:13 AM

    shocking pass

  • 73 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:13 AM

    WHAT A TACKLE BY COLLO

  • 74 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:13 AM

    Who told alan smith he can play 50 yard cross field passes? STOP IT SMUDGER!

  • 75 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:13 AM

    ooooh coloccini..

  • 76 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:13 AM

    Impeccable pass from Smith. I actually am better than him. ;)

  • 77 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:14 AM

    @Andy: because he’s scared to run with the bloody thing.

    Wish Jonas would stop running into opponents -_-

  • 78 Manx Magpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:14 AM

    hahahahahahahahahaha smith.

  • 79 2 AMEOBI'S // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    i smell a goal…

  • 80 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    We’ve had a shot on goal! Get in there

  • 81 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    That was the best chance of the game… and Lover missed it completely.

    Wow

  • 82 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    Attacking wise, not gutierrez is our hope to create all those chances

  • 83 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:16 AM

    at least we create something now

  • 84 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:16 AM

    “it” being the ball btw in case you think there was a shot.

  • 85 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:16 AM

    if smith is in the 25 man squad for this season pardew should be shot

  • 86 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:16 AM

    Good ball jonas from the right! His actual side!

  • 87 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:17 AM

    I wanna see some goals !

  • 88 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:17 AM

    PK Denied

  • 89 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:17 AM

    @Jack: if we can’t get rid of him or have somebody better, it’s a case of “him or nothing”, I’m afraid. An extra body is always preferable to nothing.

    Jonas holding onto the ball again. Glad to see his crossing has improved.

  • 90 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:17 AM

    that was a pen

  • 91 2 AMEOBI'S // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    stonewall penalty

  • 92 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    @Andy: Jonas is on the left mate. Haven’t seen him on the right yet?

  • 93 Spike // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    Nice to see the old bog rolls getting thrown. Reminds me of the 70′s. I just need someone to piss in my pocket and I’ll be taken back in time

  • 94 branunited // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    ryan taylor injury, this rate of injuries we get not team againts arsenal.

    need to sign 4 players more, 1 defense, 1 midfielder and 2 striker.

    n’zogbia signed for aston villa.

  • 95 tommyL // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    I forget these guys play week in week out on the artificial pitches. They should be better than this.

  • 96 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:18 AM

    And aye, it was a pen. ref probably trying to keep it level with it being a friendly and that.

  • 97 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:19 AM

    Alan Smith do the short passes and please NEVER ever do that long passes

  • 98 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:19 AM

    thump would rarther nothing then as thats what smith brings to the side

  • 99 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:19 AM

    alot betta by newcastle like

  • 100 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:19 AM

    @branunited: No he hasn’t.

  • 101 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:20 AM

    Think we have two players in the top 5-category in the world in both CB and LB. We cant loose Colo or the bull! They are outstanding players…

  • 102 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:20 AM

    Jonas has went over to the right last 5-10 thump. Gosling on left. 2 crosses and both beat the first man!

  • 103 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:20 AM

    Jonas our new RW

  • 104 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:21 AM

    @Jack: than we’re paying 50k p/w for nowt – not acceptable like.

    Is it half time already? Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun.

  • 105 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:21 AM

    half time team talk , put feckn tiote in defense midfield , take smith off bring abeid on take loven off put ba on

  • 106 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:21 AM

    @Andy: Aye, saw when he chipped the ball in. Was ca

    …cheerleaders, howay!

  • 107 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:21 AM

    On this performance tiote needs to learn how to pass. Jonas how to keep the ball lovenkrands the offside rule and smith needs shot

  • 108 mashearer // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    now all is not lost

  • 109 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    Bit cheerleadin, nice ;-)

  • 110 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    Now this is what football should be about.

  • 111 TemuriKetsbaia // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    Now ya talking!

  • 112 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    first half was disappointing to say the least, cant pass and most of our players look like they cant jog for more than 15 yards in fear of passing out.

    Get some changes made and stop over working them, or we will be picking up stupid, needless injuries from fatigue

  • 113 tommyL // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    This is what i call a half time!

  • 114 Colo2 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    Highlight so far the half time entertainment

  • 115 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:22 AM

    Zog bid accepted aye… words fail me.. can’t be arsed anymore

  • 116 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:23 AM

    Gosling has looked good and i’ve been impressed with him. Tiote defensively sound. Tavernier looks decent. FF still shaky

  • 117 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:23 AM

    weyy its only a freindly but that was canny poor!!

    put tiote in defense midfield , take smith off for abeid and take loven off for ba

  • 118 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:23 AM

    Is it over or half time.. .sorry only on there thought the match was @1:30

    were playing cracker…but i think now we all know for sure jose is away cuz he aint second place to any1 on r team n he dont look injurd to me

  • 119 AmericanMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:23 AM

    Also also also, anyone got sound?

  • 125 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:27 AM

    Choreography needs a bit o work mind. Don’t think theyl make it onto Step Up 4.

  • 126 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:27 AM

    we are up against a pretty decent side, I mean no leyton orient but yee knaa what i mean.

  • 127 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:27 AM

  • 129 DembaBaMyLord // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:27 AM

    Absolutely Gutted we missed out on N’zogbia he’s a quality player and the standard of football we are playing ia absolutely awful, get rid of Alan Smith!!

  • 130 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:28 AM

  • 132 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:28 AM

  • 133 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:28 AM

  • 136 Offkey // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:29 AM

  • 137 tommyL // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:29 AM

    Lol @ the people that think N’Zogbia signing for Villa. Probably goons reading the Daily Fail

  • 138 Irie-Magpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:29 AM

    Just was wondering this no sound on mine are is it because it’s halftime?

  • 139 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    @ ross armstrong

    Agree with your subs, but they will wait a bit with some of them, cause they have few on the bench.

  • 140 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    Hoping one of them “cheerleaders” gets hit in the head by a stray ball

  • 141 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    Why put a video of singers up when all we can do is watch them dance. They look about 14

  • 142 davybtoon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    dont think weve ever been after nzogbia

  • 143 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    @Offkey: You can’t hear it, but they’re actually singing Freebird.

  • 144 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:30 AM

    Longest 3minute song ever this.

  • 145 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:31 AM

    @Colo2 they had better half time entertainment at the Serbia v Spain U19 European match yesterday

    @Andy Very true, looked the only decent player out there, in terms of creating chances with through balls.

    I am concerned about Jonas and Lovenkrands not running around like they normally do, they normally never stop running

    I think we should just sneak into the stands and pick some fans to play for us, our players are obviously too tired to do anything.

  • 146 Enn You Eff Sea // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:31 AM

    Dunno whats worse, our performance or the cameraman!

  • 147 davybtoon // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:31 AM

    @Pwnanza: Remember the heat and humidity in Florida at the minute. I might be over there in a few weeks and my mate has said he’ll give me 20 minutes in the Florida heat before I work on a portable de-humidifier. It’s boiling.

  • 152 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:34 AM

    Expecting Tavernier to give Simpson real compition for right back this season

    did anyone else just miss kick of then?

  • 164 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:36 AM

    @SmS: When the ball hits the floor he gets electrocuted. I like this.

    Don’t get too excited about Tavernier. Yeah he looks tidy and is looking like Messi in comparison to the rest of the lads but I reckon he’s shining in an average team.

    Next season will be his breakthrough.

  • 165 sania // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:36 AM

    express have the story about us getting turk player and viia getting zog..all this is paper rumers..lets see if it is right..theirs will ours wont..

  • 170 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:38 AM

    Jonas back on the left? Is Pardew blind?

  • 171 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:39 AM

    @kevy: Marveaux isn’t involved.

  • 172 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:40 AM

    Jonas is on the left, because En”notgonnabeherenextseason”rique is on the left…

  • 173 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:40 AM

    Marv didnt make the bench.

  • 174 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:40 AM

    Like it how our pen wasnt a pen but that was a fk

  • 175 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:40 AM

    Orlando lad made Lovers FK look good!

  • 176 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:40 AM

    @Colo2
    More cheerleaders, but they were in there 20′s not early teens.

    @Thump
    I know that the heat is an issue over there, but with it being later in the day there, surely it relives some of the stress it puts on there bodies.

  • 177 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:41 AM

    Forster looks like he is having a party. with all that colorful streamers surrounding his goal

  • 181 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:43 AM

  • 193 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:46 AM

    I swear Tioté sees the world like The Terminator only his guidance system is a bit dodgy.

  • 194 ~Vive la révolution de Châteauneuf~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:47 AM

    I wonder,

    When Tiote Destroys a player, does he get up and say, Cheick Mate?

  • 195 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:47 AM

    Jose is lost without Jonas like.

  • 196 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:47 AM

    Score still 0-0 then?
    Love it when ur comments get skimmed over

    Me tampon just flew out

  • 197 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:47 AM

    is this our last game in the US?
    when do they fly home?

  • 198 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:48 AM

    It might be the quality of this stream, but does their keeper look a bit like C. Ronaldo to you lads?

  • 199 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:49 AM

    I really hope we get erding to inject some pace and trickery up front. Someone who can create their own chances, not just relying on a ball across 6 yard box.

  • 200 DembaBaMyLord // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:49 AM

    This is a crap game, crap live stream, crap reffing might as well go to bed

  • 201 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:50 AM

  • 202 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:50 AM

    Nah Burni,

    3-0 To us Mate, Best got a Brace and Loven snuck one in.

  • 203 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:50 AM

    One more U.S. Game after this one.

  • 204 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:51 AM

    Lover and Best have no communication. Best tries to lay a pass off to Lover and he’s already running in the wrong direction!

  • 205 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:51 AM

    collo is class

  • 206 boater // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:51 AM

    Colo … just class…

  • 207 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:51 AM

    Or is it the others playing there way out of contention?

  • 208 xmindcrimex // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:51 AM

    I love it when Colo goes on his Albert runs. :)

  • 209 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:52 AM

  • 210 Colo2 // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:52 AM

    Colo class
    Lovenkrands not

  • 211 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:52 AM

    @xmindcrimex: …imagine Colo with an Albert ‘tache though!

  • 212 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:52 AM

    Great run and pass by captain Colo, only to be ‘nearly’ there by Lovernkrands.

  • 213 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:53 AM

    put some f****g subs on

  • 214 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:53 AM

    Get the subs on!

  • 216 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:54 AM

    defo colwell

  • 217 xmindcrimex // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:54 AM

    @thump

    You see, that would be too good. Then I would have Colo as captain till he was 40.

  • 218 BigKirky // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:55 AM

    Colo is playing really well. Wish the forwards could muster up some better performances.

  • 219 manxpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:55 AM

    Colo is best player on pitch he’s just class great choice 4 captain luvin his runs forward 2

    We got away with it there

  • 222 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:56 AM

  • 226 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:57 AM

  • 232 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 1:59 AM

    We’re making these look like they have one of the meanest defences in world football……..

  • 234 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:00 AM

    chris guthrie lmao

  • 235 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:00 AM

    Why is it that when we’re attacking, our entire midfield moves forward? We’re giving the opposition so much time to move forward and, potentially, gifting them a goal.

  • 236 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:00 AM

    Abeid at last

  • 237 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:01 AM

  • 279 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:13 AM

    @Ross: Vuckic is #29.

    @Burni: That was owt but a cracking save mate. He looks jittery and isn’t giving the defence any confidence.

  • 280 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:13 AM

    Mattnufc,

    Its going to be along the lines of,

    The lads were tired, The heat is really taking its toll on the squad, yada yada.

  • 287 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:14 AM

    I think ‘control the game’, is being translated as ‘lacklustre and dawdling, until we’re a goal down, then show some urgency’.

  • 288 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:14 AM

    vuckic goal offside?

  • 294 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    Now that was a good save by Forster.

    @kevy: I’ve no idea.

  • 295 toonoholic // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    the players are on “heat”

  • 296 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    Seriously, Strolla makes the 40 year old Forward that plays for the Singapore National team look world class. Scored 2 set up 1 last night, and dominated the Malaysian defence the whole 90 minutes… @ the age of 40, turning 41 next month!.

  • 297 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    wow great performance from Orlando

  • 298 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    Im very impressd by foster . .fcuk krul he looks way better tbh

  • 299 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    Nah bud i agree but that 1 save means he should be 1st choice….

    Also could that have even been off?

  • 300 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:15 AM

    Aye it was offside.

    Joke.

  • 301 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:16 AM

    if pardew uses the heat as an excuse someone should ask him why the f are we touring in two of the hottest states then

  • 302 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:16 AM

    lol relegation a definite cos were 1-0 in a pre season friendly with 4/5 first teamers on

  • 303 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:16 AM

    Orlando is abusing zonal marking here, like. Whenever somebody gets on the ball he has 10 men surrounding him.

  • 304 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:17 AM

    if pardew uses the heat as an excuse then someone needs to ask him why the f**k are we touring two of the hottest states then

    @JackButler: If they can play in this heat, they can play in Newcastle.

    We should probably be touring Greenland, though.

  • 314 NathanH NUFC // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:19 AM

    WHY ISN’T BA UP FRONT FFS!?

  • 315 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:19 AM

    @305 not really. enjoying the banter . shola is still a donkey

  • 318 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:19 AM

    Haha,

    Mattnufc, i think we have eliminated any possible excuse for Pardew, unless he comes up with something crazy?
    The Stadium lights were too bright and put our players off everytime they went forward?

  • 319 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:19 AM

    82 min- DISALLOWED GOAL. James Tavernier breaks forward and plays the ball across goal to Vuckic who slots home from an acute angle only to see the assistant’s flag denying him the equaliser.

    Tav set him up? Well done lad.

  • 320 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:20 AM

    no shapes, trash performance… :(

  • 321 sania // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:20 AM

  • 324 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:20 AM

    @Nathan: I think you’ll find he is…?

  • 325 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:20 AM

    that and the fact the players arent that bothered its a friendly its for fitness

  • 326 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid is looking sharp like.

    Unlucky not to get that in.

  • 327 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid just turnt him inside out lol

  • 328 TemuriKetsbaia // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid is a BEAST!

  • 329 JackButler // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    thump if you play in this heat you need to make 11 changes at half time otherwise you’ll push them too far

  • 330 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Who did Liverfools play?

  • 331 hartoon // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    remember last seasons pre-season ahuh ….
    anyway its not like this is our first team and our first team players that are playing have done decent and for gods sake remember its a pre-season game.
    cabaye,marveux,ben arfa,barton,ba are missing from the game
    (pretty much our entire attack for next season)
    enrique is suprisingly lively for being “injured” last week.

  • 332 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid looks decent again

  • 333 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid looks a skillful shite lol

  • 334 Colo2 // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

    Abeid looked good there…

  • 335 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:21 AM

  • 336 toonoholic // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:22 AM

  • 337 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:22 AM

    Orlando’s striker is worth 10m on that performance

  • 338 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:22 AM

    Cheik dont see ANY doom mongers

    Are u a troll?

  • 339 colwell // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:22 AM

    The Titanic goes down faster than Foster

  • 340 ginkoh // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:22 AM

    our team is knackered , well consider the heat and you can understand.
    make more subs !!

  • 344 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:23 AM

    @ginkoh: Tavernier, mate.

  • 345 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:23 AM

    be nice to get a goal in america like

  • 346 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:23 AM

    Your mam goes down faster than anyone……

  • 347 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    @Nathan: I’m watching the game where Ba is playing in the hole. I’m not sure what you’re watching.

  • 348 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    what that orlando’s striker can do, which is go past two of our defenders, is none of our strikers can do

  • 349 mattnufc // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    @Chiek mate
    Ha yeah
    Ba’s playing left mid, could Pardew even give a plausable answer for that?

  • 350 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    That reff is so anti toon

  • 351 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    that was A joke

  • 352 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:24 AM

    full time

    Pub Club 1 Newcastle United 0

  • 353 NathanH NUFC // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    @Thump, Pretty much every time i’ve seen Ba, he’s been glued to the left hand side..

  • 354 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    Why isnt Sammy playing?

  • 355 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    gg, cant wait to see Pardew’s post match

  • 356 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    what a joke , ive stopt up 4 that , pardue wake up and get th signings in man you muppet zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • 357 Thump // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    @Brutoon: I thought the pub club was playing in black and white?

  • 358 sania // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    sunday exprees paper..has made up six signings up…they will get 1 right….smith why do all managers we had play this clown..biggest joke 2 pay 55.000000grand yes lads i put them norts on he has had that many lol

  • 359 Kris // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:25 AM

    Good Night guys, we defo need signings. Our back-four look quite good at the moment but we are really bad at the opposite side. We need a class striker and a winger!

  • 360 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    That was probably mike ashleys fault

  • 361 kevymartins // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    Nufc supporters traveling thousand of miles to watch a performance like that is disgracefull

  • 362 CLOIN // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    Gateshead could of beat us

  • 363 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    I can feel that ‘winning mentality’ radiating from our team ;)

  • 364 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    meh leeds and fiorentina will be a better reflection on how we are when we have a full squad to choose from and evryone shud be fit

  • 365 ginkoh // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    I think our players fear to get any injury after Raylor get off.

  • 366 Enn You Eff Sea // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    Such a bad game, players out of position, bad cameraman, no sound, biased referee… should have just gone to bed!

  • 367 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:26 AM

    @Chiek mate
    Ha yeah
    Ba’s playing left mid, could Pardew even give a plausable answer for that

    Possibly,

    “I told him to play a central forward role, but due to the lack of Understanding and my inability to speak french, he played down the left”

  • 368 jackdnufc // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    We looked very tired tonight. Let’s hope we play some far better stuff against Columbus.

    Fair play to Orlando, it’s only a friendly, eh? ;)

  • 369 Andy // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    tykestv.eu channel 1 for khan fight at 3

  • 370 ross armstrong // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    not 1 of us is happy there , we lacked alot of things!! pardue ya clueless mate

  • 371 Colo2 // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    Haha I stayed up for that.

    I think we need another striker…wonder how much Orlando want for theirs

  • 372 Pwnanza // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    im glad i stayed up to watch that pile of dog turds.

    im off to bedy byes now, to have nightmares about where the club might be in 2 seasons time c,ya’s later

  • 373 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:28 AM

    If the yanks are that happy after that performance it shows how BAD the MLS is. Very slow, understandably so with the heat but all right i guess

  • 374 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:28 AM

    Thump : we are losing to a pub club, never heard the team before today. we are worst than a pub club

  • 375 Toon XI // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:28 AM

    I don’t think this tour of the USA is getting this squad ready for Aug 13th. I know we are missing many regulars and that it is preseason, but wow that was horrible. The Columbus Crew match will be more telling. Watching ManU dismantle the US teams and watching us barely muster a shot on goal much less score makes me realize how far behind ManU we really are at this time.

  • 376 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:28 AM

    cheers andy

  • 377 tommyL // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    I remember when we lost 6-1 to the O’s in a pre season 2 years ago. Look how that season turned out.

    I find it funny that people can’t grasp the simple concept of pre seasons. It’s to get fitness up. Of course we want to win and put on a good display but it’s our 3rd game and for some their first run out. Not to mention the humidity.

  • 378 Brutooon // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    The orlando striker is better than ameobi and lovenkrands combine !!!

  • 379 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    hehe, Gutted for you lads staying up!, Its 9.30AM for me now… Bright and Sunny Morning!.

  • 380 CLOIN // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    When a goalkeeper doesn’t have to make a save you know your in trouble.Thats 2 games without a decent effort.God help us

  • 381 Toon XI // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    Burni

    Orlando isn’t even in the MLS. It is in the league BELOW it. This was not pretty tonight.

  • 382 Smooth moves Shola // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:30 AM

    Well, I’m off to say a little prayer for HBA before bed. Nice to experience that total football, with you fellas tonight.

  • 383 Robin // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:30 AM

    @cheik mate
    you’re from hong kong? its same for me

  • 384 davybtoon // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:31 AM

  • 385 jackdnufc // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:31 AM

    Toon XI-

    Orlando are two below it! Lol

  • 386 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:31 AM

    Cheik, NOW i see what u mean about doom mongers!!! Sheeyat! We beat em all over we scored 1 that was on! We bossed em all over, first comments i read are we need a new striker! Jesus christ!

  • 387 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:31 AM

    Nope. Im studying in Singapore. From the UK tho.

  • 388 theboycharlie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:31 AM

  • 390 Toon XI // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:33 AM

    Are you serious?

  • 391 ~Cheik Mate~ // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:33 AM

    Well Im off to go drown my morning Sorrows with a nice cold bottle of water and a nice hot plate of Chicken Masala. I cant wait!

  • 392 SwedishMagpie // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:35 AM

    this performance reminds me of the stevenage match…. the only good players today was Abeid Colo and Tavernier

  • 393 Burni // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:36 AM

    Toon xi im with u bud! Its really gettin boring on here now!

    Only thing i would say is, pardew needs shoot if he EVER plays shitty smit again, i hate him now, truly, smit that is

  • 394 tommyL // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:36 AM

    This clip may cheer some up

    One of the clowns the scum have signed.

  • 395 jackdnufc // Jul 24, 2011 at 2:41 AM

    Toon XI-

    My mistake they’re in on of the two conferences in the level below MLS. They are by far their best side though. I know their owners are very keen to get them into the MLS at some point but teams don’t get promoted into the MLS like they do everywhere else.
