Pardew – We Need Fans Help On Sunday

There’s not too much Alan pardew can do with last night’s loss but to take the positives out of it, and there were quite a few.

Ben Arfa after scoring great opportunist goal

It was a terrible way to lose a point to have Arsenal equalize in the 95th minute of the game with Danny Simpson injured and Newcastle effectively down to 10 men.

But that’s what happened and it’s dead and gone now – unfortunately.

Alan Pardew took the positives out of the game:

“We had some really good performances against a top team and we have to take that forward – we can’t let it hurt us,”  “Our game plan tonight nearly got us a point, but not quite.

“Last minute goals are painful and it will probably take until Thursday to get it out of our system, but then we’ve got to focus and we’ve got to go and win a game. It is very important that we win on Sunday in front of our own fans.”

“Our fans will have watched this game, be it on television or here, and will have seen the honesty we put in. But we are going to need their help on Sunday. I really hope they turn up and roar us home, because we are going to need help.”

It’s going to be a big game now on Sunday afternoon, and Newcastle haven’t had a win in their last four games and have two defeats in London at Tottenham and Arsenal.

It’s not that we really expected to get much out of those games, but we should have got more than a couple of points out of the home games against Wolves and Sunderland – two teams below Newcastle in the  league.

But the lads must play at their best against Norwich, and we must be able to get the win on Sunday, and then things will look a lot  better than they did at the end of the game last night.

Last night was really hard to take.

    Is it just me or perch is a great full back? He is too short to play center half but he is very quick and has a great attitude and honesty in his game.. Probably people judge him and under-hate him because of that game against stoke last year

    I was looking up the FA cup and saw there are 8 teams left

    and tottenham liverpool chelsea are our only hope

    so out of 8 teams 3 can help us but 2 of them have to reach the final… that seems quite unlikely seen so chelsea and tottenham and liverpool are on awful runs…
    meaning we need 5th spot off chelsea! meaning we need to start winning NOW… well sunday 😉

    We did so well tonight, and a sloppy throw in from Simpson cost us. There was only one poor performance in the team tonight and that was Obertan, who lost the ball far too cheaply. Ameobi made a difference when he came on, held the ball up well, and won a few free kicks. Arsenal’s weakness was Ben Arfa cutting inside, the defenders let him turn onto the left, which should have been done more often. Ben Arfa would have been better in the centre mind, with Obertan on the right.

    1) Obertan got no idea what he is doing (maybe no idea about football)

    2) Perch as usual “did well” but the cross for ASSenal goal came from his side

    3) Ameobi did ok

    4) we should pass the ball more to HBA because gibbs is easily a weak target

    “Pardew – We Need Fans Help On Sunday”

    Funny thing… I’ve heard the same thing from same person after Wolves game… the only problem is that the fans didn’t win the games. The shite tactics also didn’t win the games.
    O yeah… and now again we’ve heard “Pardew take the positives”… that was the same again after Wolves when “the positives” was that we’ve play much better of the game before against Spurs.

    hba showed why he deserves to be a starter at this club.
    did excellent going forward. gave up some key opportunities, but i know that if he had better outlets he can do wonders.
    our players still need to adjust. and to play like we did against arsenal AWAY shows that things are just starting to click.
    give it time. against our next opponents we can continue to mesh and grow (not underestimating ANY of our opponents)
    didnt expect much at emirates in the first place, but the boys got some good playing time. it wasnt great. but it wasnt terrible.

    wow that still SOUNDS depressing. haha

    ED its an honor reading your blog. im always thankful for your insight and your dedication.

    Pardew it’s time to shut up and stop telling the fans to get behind. The fans has been doing this for the past centuries, it is you that didn’t deliver in those winnable games.

    Lose the game, but win our heart!!
    I feel this time Newcastle played very well, especially on B10, he is so smart!!! We lost 2 points in the 95th minute of the game with Danny Simpson injured and Newcastle effectively down to 10 men. Football is football. Lost but in good performance is enough!!!! Howay the Lads!

    Easy lads! We are still sixth! remember!

    And if any of you “so called fans” need telling by anyone to get behind the team on here or for that matter Anywhere else or by anyone else! Shame on You!
    Maybe you need to get out of your Prams and go and support someone else! The Mackems could do with your sort of support!

    We showed a lot of style in this game! They did,nt! However some of the dicks on here, need to remind themselves about what a superb season we have had! Our reputation and attitude has been top notch this year! Our finances are all but sorted, thanks to, dare i say it, our hated owners and the dickheed of a Director!

    In the home game against the Wolves it was like the stadium was empty! And yes, tactically Pardew f,,,,,,,,,d up!
    But i,me sick and tired of the doom merchants coming on here and moaning and being negative every time something goes wrong!

    Pardew is right when he says that the team needs supporting! That was what got us in no small part the point against the Scum last week! We were just unlucky not to get ought this time at the Emirates, next time we will!

    The tean showed a modicum of class last night in the game!

    Which is more than i can say about some of the support now on here!

    I think we can get to 60 points and that I think will be good enough for 6th. I thing though we desperatley need at least 1 new defender with pace. I hate having a go at players but Williamson just isn’t PL class. In the last 3 games he has cost us 5 points he was at fault for Wolves equaliser, gave away a daft penalty against the sh*te and was at fault for Van Persie’s goal last night. One last thing Van Persie is a complete w*nker the FA should charge him with disripute and Wiltshire isn’t much better did anyone see his tweet Plonker. I hope Spurs & Chelsea finish above the Gooners

    We the fans always get behind our team Monsieur Pardieu Mon! It is AP’s tactical naievete that makes us look so predictable on the pitch. AP has got to realise that we do have quality players who can get us into the Europa Cup this season – but not by playing unimaginative rooute one, long ball kick and hope suitable for lower divisions. Come off the apologies AP – the opposition see us coming – or you coming with the same old plan (lack of it?).
