    Hope this signals the end of Gutierrez as a winger and the awful 4-4-2 formation!!!

    Chelsea loaning out Lukaku seems to be a master stroke. I thought he would fade away on the bench at Chelski but he looks a real handful at 19 and would give Caroll a run for his money.

    Gutierrez has been awful for a few games and his passing is always very disappointing in every game and costing us our attacking momentum. He tracks back and defends like his life depends on it but he should play when we are playing against a stronger team to win us the free-kicks more. Against WBA and the like we should utilize Fergie /Sammy / Obertan from the start.

    People forget we played 4-3-3 today. I thought it was the wrong players tbf. West Brom were good today, people underestimate them.
    They were very unlucky today and deserved the win more than us IMO.

    We need to improve drastically next week if we are to win at Anfield.

    AP, you are honest enough to say we did not deserve the win, i think that as well, but three points will show on the prem table and thats all that matters.

    Thing is it is the wrong team selection for a home game at SJP, even b4 the game it brought me down, i mentioned b4 no width at home is just not on, no crosses in to the box when we have players sitting on the bench who apparently can peel an orange with their left foot?

    I am sorry but jonas should not be an automatic for me off course workrate but for me stops our game flowing and offers no forward threat, perch also dosnt offer much evdn though he has improved, he shouldnt be playing if fit midfielders are ready ie anita

    We scraped by today and we wont do much better against anyone else unless we are more forward thinking, we are looking average but we neednt if we played to our strengths, width we can do with fergie and its time to freshen up with adam campbell, no doubts at all.

    Players have not a divine right to be in the team, AP has to sort that.

    Super Magie, will hold my hands up to that one, West Brom were much better than I expected. Don`t agree they deserved the win. A draw for me would have been a fairer result. Thought Sami and Ober played well. possibly helped by coming on against a tiring team. Ober ca`t be far off from getting a start, think he is much improved from last season.
    If Ba is going to be out then I think we can see more of the 433 formation people are so desperate for.

    Can’t believe we got outpassed and dominated by that WBA midfield at home. None of them would get in our first XI so how the hell can they pass the ball better than us in such a conclusive fashion is beyond me.

    Our players are confused and don’t know what they are doing on the pitch and we play with no purpose or style. And the reason for that is because Pardew wants us to be an “unpredictable” side. He has achieved that in fact he has achieved that so much that even our own players can’t predict how they are playing!!

    And he want’s us to be an “unpredictable” side because Sir Alex advised him to do so. It’s actually quite funny how credulous our manager is. Protip Pardew: Don’t base your job around a competitor’s advice. Basic stuff really but our manager doesn’t seem to grasp that.

    I’m happy right now because the fans are not really appreciating the shower of sh)t they are witnessing week in and week out. And if he doesn’t do anything about it well I don’t care how long of a contract he got if the fans don’t want he to manage us he WON’T.

    I thought we’d play well today, but in all honesty we’ve been sub par in the league all season. 9 games in and we have shown little and lie tenth. On the other hand Santon is looking great, Ba and Cisse both scored and Obertan continues to frustrate but is clearly gifted and improving. This team has much more to offer than that workmanlike stuff, it’s puzzling, but it was a fantastic feeling when the winner went in.

    What pisses me off the most when we see us play is our constant loss of possesion. The only players that are decent at keeping the ball with their passing and holding are: Colo,Saylor HBA, BA, Cisse, Ameobi and young Fergie, Bigi and Sammy. That’s just not good enough if we want to be a top 6 side every season. All the other players are constantly giving it away even Cabaye. He is supposed to be one of our better passes and he is way out of form this season. Gutierrez is by far our worse passer of the ball. He does great at holding it up though. Santon is still learning and is getting better. Anita the same but I expected slightly better but still too early for him. Tiote this season is shockingly poor. He is getting sent off, non stop yellows, terrible back-passes, ball watching and our most out of form player at the moment. Simpson always looks uncomfortable for me and clueless when on the ball. Always plays the typical long ball. Willo is too ordinary though solid. He just keeps lumping long balls to nowhere as does Krul though he is improving this season in playing it short sometimes.

    In general we don’t know how to keep the ball, pass and move at the same time. When we somehow do manage to do that we usually score. So that’s what is most frustrating because we have the team to perform really well yet this season we are playing poorly and scraping wins against lesser opposition apart from Bordeaux.

    Pardew should give a few players a right kick in the bum to start them into gear and to look before you pass, and when you do pass move into space and play some one-twos ffs!

    PS. please play the short throw in for a bloody change and at least get the ball over the first man in corners!

    Agreed i obertan looked good today, maybe he’s had a kick up the arse but he’s starting to show some if his promise i also think santoon looked cracking at rb so wouldnt mind seeing him and ober on the right, jonas lb and benny LW with ba and cisse rotating

    Aye his oassing has been poor lately and his runs see him going nowhere but hes still grafting and still doing a great job of breaking up the oppositions play be more than happy to see him atleast have a game there to see how he does, him and colo have a great understanding of each other too a bit like santon and obertan seemed to have today

    Agreed. Big boss man doesn’t give a shiny shite how the team perform and pardew being given 8 years proves his job is safe.

    Unless there is a drastic drop down the table. But performances are definitely not important to mike.

    I didn’t say he will get sacked soon. Because I don’t think he will but in the long run say in the next 10-15 games playing like today and… well.. everyone will be calling for his head.

    Today at the game I sensed a real sense of frustration and bewilderment from the fans more games like this and it will turn into rage.

    You underestimate how powerful our fans are. If they don’t want the manager he will get replaced it’s as simple as that.

    Don’t tell me “b but it’s Ashley!!” We forced him to put us on sale twice and we will definitely force him to sack an employee if we truly want to.

    What a contrast there was today and the away performance against WBA last season. We went from slick passing 4-3-3 with Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Ba & Cisse playing like a team to an ultra defensive and boring 4-4-2 which has been very lucky to pick up results this season. We can’t keep getting late or flukey goals for much longer and I hope Pardew can find a formation that brings the best out of our players.

    Also I would love to know what Fergie has to do to get a start over Gutierrez like ? , seemingly an assist a game isn’t good enough. Just look at Raheem Sterling at Liverpool, that’s what can happen if we take a chance and actually start players on merit rather than their name or “hard work”. Does my head in

    People were Sending death threats to him and his daughter and that’s why he wanted out.

    Don’t think people will send death threats to him because of a few dull performances.

    But like I said – any manager can be sacked if they drop points and pardew is no different.

    I for one will be far from happy with Pards and his crew if after another 10 -15 games he still hasn’t manged to get more more out of this talented squad. It’s hard to imagine this form continuing though, then again, it’s hard to emulate last seasons form, which is clearly what we want.

    MA doesn’t care about results.
    Strong possibilites of wanting AP sacked.
    AP is loosing it.

    The list goes on bud.
    For me, there are a big ammount of reasons why things are like they are this season, and it’s easily defendable in my view.
    It’s not a great start, but it’s solid.

    I could go through that list, but i’m not sure i want to. It’s not gonna change people anyway.

    So many players were off today – Cabaye, Guti, even Benny – we were second best in midfield and couldn’t pass wind without missing! Lucky is an understatement. However, tbf they didn’t stop working and trying and we did create some opportunities right to the end. And West Brom rode their luck a bit last season, I think.

    Not sure we played 442 today ? shola was a right winger most of the time!! and Ba lost ever high ball hit towards him ,the one time Shola came in as a front. Two we scored.
    Biggest problem for me is Ben arfa playing too deep and cab doing the job of two perch was awful just awful today.if he I a premier league midfielder the pope isn’t a catholic

    We played 4-3-3 today mate. Ba in the middle, HBA left, Shola right.
    The Gutti, Perch and Cabs in the middle.
    Shola deserved a start, and AP went for experience in my view when starting Perch for DM.

    But, let’s be honest, i thought that team looked boring as hell.

    Ashton I have been going to SJP I know exactly what the fans are capable of, Jack Charlton didn`t hang about long when the fans got on his case.
    I don`t get that vibe about Pardew at all. There is always a minority of “fans” who like to have a twist, even when Keegan was manager and we were playing the best football I ever saw there was always a few having a pop at something. That`s just the nature of some supporters.
    Don`t confuse natural frustration at a game not going well as something more than it is.
    I appreciate you are on a mission to educate the blog and if only you were not so misunderstood we would all think your way.
    Not going to happen mate your wasting your time.

    We only played 433 in the first half. Which was a much better half than the second for us. And we were very average in the first half.

    Exam Question: a) Toon play well with 10 men against Sunderland and get an unlucky draw thanks to a deflection / own goal. Everyone says what a good team we are with a good manager. b) 1 week later, Toon play poorly but win 2-1 against an excellent West Brom team thanks to a deflection. Everyone says we are a poor team with a poor manager.
    Discuss.

    Aye that we did, but i thought we dominated the first half decently, with WBA having only two clear cut chances.
    2nd half, clearly worse, but dominated the last 15 mins with Sammy and Obertan coming on.
