    Do you reckon any of the players even turn up to training ? Or there might not be any training… Seems that way

    Positives:

    We played well for about 8 minutes at the start.

    For about 2 and a half seconds Cisse looked like his old self.

    Simmo put 3 decent crosses into the box in a row, taking his season statistics up to… 3.

    Negatives:

    What’s the point? We all have two eyes and brain. IMO our worst run of form since the 08-09 season. Please, please turn things around Pards and co. HWTL.

    Gotta say that was probably the worse tactically shamble I have seen in a long time (and there have been a few this season)

    …after 30 min. it looked like Pardew had given on on the game already! And the subs again…was…well we all know how they were!

    I am struggling to find some positive to take from this game – hope there is some?

    Tbf,Pardew needs his fair share of criticisms , im not calling for him to be sack but the fact is we’ve been poor since the start of the season and showing no sign of improving and also if it wasn’t for Ben Arfa,we would be sitting quite comfortably in the relegation zone.Im afraid if it goes on like this,we’ll probably lose our best players in the next transfer market and head towards relegation!And no this is not a knee jerk reaction,been on my mind the last few weeks now!

    What an absolute shamble of a game, Pardew is hands down an awful manager. As for those who stick up for him, you’s really need to give your head a wobble.

    What the hell is up with the CONSTANT 4-4-2? It barley ever works, absolutely pathetic. Ba and Cisse cannot and NEVER will be able to work together properly, so drop one of them.

    Switch to 4-3-3, were a hell of a lot better in it.

    Simpson, Williamson, Cisse and Guttierez are absolutely shite these days.

    He replaced our BEST player on the pitch with Marveaux, why the hell not replace Ba, Cisse of Guttierez. Absolutely pathetic.

    And to top it off when were getting beat 2-0 in the 90th minute, he friggin takes off Steven Taylor for perch. What a f***ing idiot.

    Pardew OUT! Promote Peter Beardsley to manager, the reserves play far better then our first team.

    We will never be a top club with mike Ashley in charge.
    We are and will be a mid table club. Mid table clubs finish between 15th and 5th.

    Like Fulham really. We will be around mid table and every now and then we will suprise our selves and get Europe or a cup run. Maybes win something.

    With Ashley and lambias at the top, we can’t become a top top team.

    Some people need to realise that, and once they do, we can push on. We need to establish ourselves as a top half team. Then we push on.

    archaeomag…team is fine (we probably still need 2 or 3 players like we did in the summer)

    …it is not the players we have that’s the problem, it’s how we utilize them and our tactics.

    We can all see what lesser teams does with so called lesser players.

    Threads move so fast these days.

    Nono, I think you don’t see it the same way. Santon provides a spark, we have no confidence, no creativity, and no motivation, watching Santon at least tells me HE hasn’t given up, even though the rest of the team has. Any player who shows some fighting spirit and can try to create a spark deserves Man of the match, as noone else did.

    Anita when played in a more forward midfield position, caused problems, he was playing really well there if I do say so myself, and I thought he was getting into fantastic positions, but ofcourse, he get’s subbed.

    OOOh been waiting to see that timmy spill again.

    thought we had a bit of a spell at the start of the second too. Simmo should not be allowed past the half way line. Anita actually is a plus visibly getting better. Sammy cant pass. Jonas not match fit. Tiote tried hard and never gave up. Ba and Cisse positioned badly most of the time. It isnt the tactics except insofar as how this mismatched bunch of players mess around with it.

    repost –
    I thought a draw but no surprise we lost, what can we expect, inferior team with little experience and I am afraid to say when we revert to constant long balls every team we play against just groups 3 players around it and wins it back. Plus we dont trust the midfield to pass it around. Hang on until jan and the regulars start coming back. I dont get the perch thing either mind, its neither a good runout or a player who will spark 2 goals unless he is protecting someone for the stoke game.

    Alan – park the bus next game.

    Something is obviously amiss. But it’s amusing how many people have latched on to the Ba/Cisse conundrum as being the central issue. It’s not, trust me. You can have a successful team that carries an out-of-form striker until they find the net. The ball is not arriving at the strikers in a way that allows for anything other than a wonder goal – which have dried up, inevitably.

    The problem is not Simpson – he’s a middling fullback nothing special but not the problem by a long stretch. The problem is not Williamson – a decent enough central squad defender.

    The problem is in midfield. There is an old saying ( I just made up) when you concede lots of goals – your defense is at fault. When you don’t score, look at the strikers. When you are generally shite with no shape, guile or imagination – it’s your midfield.

    The only reason the Ba/Cisse is relevant is because it might influence the way Pardew sorts out an effective way to organise his midfield. I’d start by putting Obertan in ahead of Guti.. as much as I have a soft spot for Jonas.

    There’s something very wrong in the state of Denmark

    Most long balls played
    Almost lowest goal scorers
    Worst set play record
    No away wins

    The penny just never drops with Pardew that Ba and Cisse never works in a 442. That’s over 25 games this buffoon hasn’t changed this god awful clueless hoof ball s..t to 2 big target men.

    Nothing to do with injuries or fatigue just a rubbish system v 3 recently promoted teams, 2 of those at home.

    Pardew has been seriously found out, just like his second season at West Ham. It’s Mullins and Harewood over tevez ad Mascherano all over again.

    Last year 5th – that was then, this is now. It just proves Pardew is not consistently good. Luck and stumbling on 433 were his biggest breaks but the idiot has turned his back on it and to me suggests we did well in spite of him not because if him last season.

    Do we ever practice passing the ball!!!!!!!!!!

    Guess we’re stuck with it as it seems ashley doesn’t particularly want us but doesn’t seem to want anyone else too either.

    @ Captain Lemon – I wish I thought it was that simple, you can’t blame the manager for poor touches and misplaced passes, – too much dwelling on the ball.

    Pathetic performance if any of you think pardew i the right man for this club you need your heads checked. I have never seen such lazy useless football. Injuries get on with it you have a few players out and you pardew have made your players believe without these few stars you still cant go out and give a 100 percent cause thats what the fans what 100 percent every game if you lose after that i doubt many will have any excuses. We havent scored from set pieces this season how can we every league in the world knows who you aiming for Williamson bloody hell pardew is that the best you can come up with what is your game plan your players are scared to make a tackle. I am tired of your nonsense pack your bags and get out.

    Lallana another player we were once linked with, he plays the role Marveaux should be playing. We are a shambles, and unfortunately this season reminds me of the relegation one

    Our youngsters aren’t good enough really.

    We see them all the time, and see glimpses of great football in some of them, but are they ready?

    In my opinion, they aren’t. Not yet. They can be introduced slowly, in moderation, but we can’t expect them to win games for us.

    Stoke on Wednesday away…. Jesus, who am I trying to kid, I will be surprised if we play better than today’s performance. The players need a rocket up their arse and get out of this vile run of form and that needs to come from AP!

    boater….in the first half we had zero shots on target and one off target, when that’s the case you don’t deploy two forwards side by side; you need to create enough chances to warrant two forwards that’s football 101!

    we all have soft spots for guti. he’s a club legend. but sentiment doesn’t play much into the way i think, especially now

    and i agree about the MF. but how can they get into the game when strikers are making awful runs….with two holding CMs (atrocious asking Anita who’s been a defender his whole life to suddenly carry our attacking intent)….and that’s if the ball, like 90% of the time, hasn’t been hoofed over the MF’s heads

    I have not commented on the blog in a while but I feel I need to have my say. I am getting increasingly fed up with the results just like all of you.
    I still will not blame Pardew 100%.
    I never wanted him as the manager but he won me over with how well we did last season. For me the blam (majority) has to be with Ashley, he refused to pay for Debuchy, or a decent center half. He refused us money for a striker as well.
    Tell me what team would do well with the injuries we have had to key players?
    Look at liverpool without Suarez or Gerrard?
    We lose Benny, and Cabaye. These have great creativity but if you take the creative tools from a team then it’s very difficult to create chances.
    Maybe Pardew is stuck in his ways with tactics but I believe we should make signings in January, possibly Sissoko, Debuchy, a center half and a striker (wont hold my breath) but if then we are still struggling maybe it is time for a change. Every team has a bad patch we just need to ride ours out.
