Update On Newcastle’s Loan Players

James Tavernier has now played seven times for Carlisle United, as the Cumbrians lost their third successive game in all competitions yesterday.

James Tavernier – in action for Carlisle

Carlisle were beaten 3-1 at home by Hartlepool United yesterday, and Hartlepool move into 6th place in League One with 13 points from their first seven games.

Carlisle now have 10 points on the season and lie in 12th position, and they also were beaten by Hartlepool 2-1 in mid-week, and went out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Former Newcastle star Nobby Solano was playing for Hartlepool, and the Peruvian set up the second goal for Adam Boyd with a nice cross, and Tavernier had a good game and set up a chance for Rory Loy,  but the Scot missed his shot completely.

Fraser Forster, back at Celtic, had an easy afternoon as Celtic won 4-0 at home to Motherwell, and Fraser now has five appearances for Celtic with three clean sheets.

And after six games played Rangers and Celtic are at the top of the league – that’s a shock – but unfortunately Hibs, under former Newcastle coach Colin Calderwood, are now rock bottom on just 3 points from five games.

Kazenga LuaLua was a 73rd minute substitute for Brighton & Hove Albion at Bristol City, and with 10 minutes to go Ashley Barnes scored the only goal in a 1-0 win for Brighton.

Brighton have made a terrific start to their first season in the Championship, and are top of the league with 16 points from their first six games and are one point above Southampton, who were also promoted last season from League One.

Kazenga is on loan to Brighton though January, and he has so far made 5 appearances for The Seagulls.

And finally England U20 goalkeeper Jak Alnwick was an unused substitute for Gateshead in their first defeat of the season at Fleetwood, where they went down 3-1 in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Gateshead however are still joint top of the league with Wrexham,  having taken 19 points from their first 8 games, and The Heed’s Shaw is the top joint scorer in the league with 7 goals.

Comments welcome.

    @Angryman the Angry fan (answering from the other thread)

    I’m just thinking, seeing the answers in the EC, MA is obviously here to stay.
    This means the man has an agenda he wants to complete, at the very least.
    Say that he’s gonna be here for the next 10 years, he’s bound to make more mistakes, thats a given.
    I hope he removes DL, cause he’s the one supplying the information, and he knows naught about how to communicate with the fans.
    That said, we will all grow weary and very tired of badgering our owner/board for the next 10 years.

    So why not just give the benefit of the doubt, atleast to MA who basically provides the money and sets the
    goals. The man won’t ever be perfect, and he has ALLOT of making up to do to earn a trusting relationship with the fans.
    But if we complain every day, and every time something goes wrong, it will deffo be exhausting.

    Hence my question in the other thread.
    If MA and DL apologized, and startet working on their relationship to their fans allot more, would u let them?

    Ed man, leave a thread sit for a few minutes before u start another! By the time I typed this u had moved on, twice! So here it is again. Thanks.
    “I’d like to make a further point here. This club can’t support itself without the financial backing of Mike Ashley; we still rely heavily on the owner. To date Mike has invested over £280m into the club, including £140m in interest-free loans. For him to continue to support the club, he has to be interested and enthused to do so. He deserves credit for his financial support but a section of supporters don’t make him feel welcome at St James’ Park, or when he attends away games. Criticism is part and parcel of the job, abuse is not. This makes life uncomfortable and certainly doesn’t make Mike feel more inclined to put his hand once again in his pocket. That’s not stubbornness, it’s human nature. I think most of us would feel exactly the same.”

    Of all the responses, this is the one which deserves the most scrutiny, because that’s the heart of it. The rest of the answers are the trees, THIS is the forest.

    Does the above justify MA’s mistakes and wrong decisions? Not at all. Does it justify his change in behaviour? Absolutely. Imagine if you had put in a quarter of whatever you own into a project: A local park team absorbs 2,500 out of your 10,000 pounds. You buy them shirts, equipment, even ‘recruit’ a player from another area. You support the team every Sunday, you spend time with the ‘fans’ (parents, a few locals), buy them beers at the local pub. Suddenly, because of a series of wrong calls (e.g. you brought in an ex- local park ‘legend’ to be coach and you subsequently and disastrously get 5 points out of a possible 24), the ‘fans’ turn on you. They won’t drink beers with you, they make you remove your team shirt, they remember that you are not from the park’s area. They even abuse you. How would you act? Think about it.

    What we are doing is fuelling the fire. Perhaps there’s no way back, it’s too late and a ‘divorce’ is inevitable. Then so be it, but let’s do the most of what we have now, till we (or he) find a new sponsor.

    Cheer’s mate, would love to have him back fighting for a place with us, think the lad has shown he has enough about him to challenge at least for a place, and the more competition for places we have the better IMO

    Just wanted to take this little draft out from an article in The Sun today:

    Pardew’s return to public life came on Thursday after some “robust” conversations with Derek Llambias, the man who had ultimate responsibility for landing United’s top striker targets.
    The Newcastle boss has made his feelings clear, and it is probably no coincidence that the board have finally opened up avenues of communication with United’s support following some of his protestations.
    He knows to some he will always be a willing patsy of an unpopular regime. Mike Ashley’s difficulties with the United support are something he neither denies nor tries to alter.
    His slightly downbeat analysis is that there is no way out of the loveless marriage for the time being. Only success, probably not to be delivered for “three or four years”, will break the cycle.
    “It’s difficult at Newcastle and I don’t think the owner’s relationship with the fans helps. That’s obvious,” he admitted.

    AP is the best thing to have happened to us since MA took over the club and saved us from administration.
    I cannot belive that some people still think AP is a puppet.
    The draft says that AP is probably the reason for the clubs change in communication, and the man even blames the owner for the relationship.

    AP a puppet? Bull!!!!
