Steven Taylor Upbeat, Time For Joey Barton To Move On


Alan Pardew is certainly looking forward to the Chelsea game on Saturday.

Steven Taylor – in action at Old Trafford

This morning Alan said he didn’t think Chelsea would be looking forward too much to playing in front of a sell-out St. James’ Park, where 52,000 mad screaming Geordies will be roaring on their side.

It’s a big advantage for this team to play at home, because they get tremendous support from the fans, after they have done so very well this season, and who knows, the good times could well be on their way back to Newcastle.

Certainly it’s been a very good season so far for Newcastle fans, with just over a third of the way through the season, with 13 games played.

And the players will also be looking forward to playing again at home, where a win would take Newcastle 4 points about the London club, and at least in 4th position in the table.

Told that it will be a sell-out on Saturday,  a confident Steven Taylor had this to say on the Newcastle web-site:

“So it should be as well,”   “It’s down to the players to keep the punters there and we are doing the right job at the moment.”

“Hopefully they are enjoying the football that we are putting on, and getting behind the team and hopefully they will make it difficult for Chelsea by roaring us on.”

“It’s a big game and we want to carry on from where we left off against Manchester United last weekend.”

“We believe we can get the three points, and they will have to be careful of the attacking options we have because we have been fantastic going forward this season. We can definitely cause them some problems.”

Things are going really well at the moment, so it was a little disappointing to see Joey Barton blasting the Newcastle hierarchy again today, this time over bonuses in early pre-season.

What’s he trying to do – upset the apple cart?

Joey may be right about what he says, and it’s another blast at Ashley and LLambias, but that’s not the point, why does he keep criticizing the Newcastle hierarchy when he is no longer at the Newcastle club?

Certainly Newcastle have surprised a lot of us this season, big time,  and after losing arguably four of our best players this year in Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Jose Enrique and Joey Barton, who would have thought that Newcastle would be flying so high?

Somebody is doing something right at Newcastle United these days, and long may it continue.

Our advice to Joey would be to  concentrate on QPR,  since he’s now at the London club, and it would be a good thing to start laying off Newcastle United – even if  what he says about Ashley and LLambias is true.

Joey Barton was great in his last two seasons at Newcastle, and we are very appreciative of that, but the club has now moved on, and that’s what Joey should do too.

Comments welcome.

    With regard to a previous thread, I ordered the Phil Jackson ‘more than a game’ book which John Carver spoke of in relation to Pardew. I’m a firm believer in psychological motivation and positive reinforcement in coaching, so I’m looking forward to reading it. I like basketball a lot too, so is even better 🙂

    We need to lay a few ghosts here – Joey Barton and his mouth is one and the Judas transfer is the other. Both are still festering.
    Andy is welcome to his future and as a Geordie lets hope he ends up as more than an expensive bench warmer and has a good career.
    Love ‘im or hate ‘im – Joey will always shoot his mouth off and we should just ignore him and let hoim get on with his new club.

    I’m with the comment on the last thread which compared a true professional like Speed with BArton and his like.

    The Toon have moved onwards and upwards – I’m more bothered about whether we qualify or CL or Europa 🙂

    That is why Pardew is so good – he really knows how to get the players up.
    Let’s see how he motivates the lads after a losing run of say 3 or 4 games.
    There’s good money is sports psychology – wish it had been a job option for me…..

    Haha but I enjoyed ur long post haha

    I agree Barton shouldnt be talking about us but at the same time if he is asked a direct quesiton then he is welcome to answer it. He is targeted by the papers all the time and they bait him. He shouldnt bite but thats his character.

    I have said many times I dont agree with everything he does or his timing but I do love the man was a top player for us and a top one for QPR now.

    But as for everyone verbally battering him on here he isnt our player anymore why do people care? If ya dont like him dont read his interviews. I cant stand John Terry so I avoid reading anything he is connected with no doubt he will mention us this week but I wont read it and I wont moan about what he says about us because, quite frankly, I dont care what he thinks

    hehe, u pose a fair point mate.
    I guess we all have some of “those” in our minds.

    angels
    I found out this on gameday, Newcastle haven’t lost two in a row since March this year.
    I’d never have thought, in a million years, that Pardew would be the man to take us to our current hights. Haven’t been this excited about the team or match day since SBRs era.

    Been reading this blog for ages but only just joined up!

    in regards to this i think Joey Barton was quality for us and feels the need to talk about us all the time cause he knows that he will never get any better than us! he now knows that he left at a time when we were only going to get better and he will regret that for a very long time! he always put his all in every time he pulled on the shirt so he cant be criticised too much though!

    Cant wait for saturday, should be a solid 3 points! 😀

    Yeh – equally suspicious of a MA placeman just a glib tongued cockney but he’s the real deal.

    He really hasn’t put a foot wrong since he came here.

    I’ve been a big fan of both Martinez and Owen Coyle – had Coyle tagged as SAF successor but he ain’t cutting it just mow.
    How good managers pick their team up and get them back into winniing form after a bad run is the hardest thing to do.

    Don’t think we should be sure of beating chelsea lads, still fear them. Winning this match is important as we will finally gain respect and be taken seriously, also we can prolongue our stay in the top four a bit longer :).

    @toonbrother, we may have been hanging on v man u but up until Jonas got sent off we were very much in the match. After he got sent off fair enough we were hanging on. We shouldn’t be overly confident but we can get a result. And let’s do this for Gary Speed

    HWTL!

    the wages he would have been on he shouldnt be moaning about bonus’s when he doesnt deserve them!

    he was brought to help the club push on and aim for europe and whilst he was here the club went backwards, got relegated, promoted and then finished mid table, basically where we were when he signed, he did nothing to improve the club so stuff any bonus’s.

    Loved JB when he was here, still do, hes gobby yeah but i think you need one of them on the pitch , look at shearer, although no barton, he was still a gobby sod. Graig bellers right mouthpiece but we loved him when he was here. JB off the pitch, and with a different club can say what he likes about our owners, as long as he dosnt slate the team or fans.that is purely because i hate our hierachy with a passion, long may he slate them , ireally dont care , in fact i enjoy reading it.

    he’s a prat isn’t he that Joey. Smacks of bitterness and to criticise them for “running the club and they’re doing well now, but that’s cos of the players and the fans and the manager”. Well Ashley bought the players, gave away some dregs, took a brave move to put Pards in place and this has brought great form which has the fans back and singing.

    We don’t miss him at all, nuff said. The only reason I hear his name these days is cos he’s gobbing off about Newcastle. We’re fourth mateyboy, tweet that you bag of shit 🙂

    Barton Shut the f*** up; you’re history; and unlike Gary Speed you’ll be forgotten in a couple of years.

    Hearing you prattling on about bonuses makes me sick when we have a real tragedy with the loss of Speedo.
