Newcastle Too Good To Go Down – Rubbish


Newcastle have to grab the bulls by the horn and admit we are in a relegation struggle, but there’s still  plenty of time to get to safety, if we only admit we are in trouble at the moment and start to fix it.

Jonas Gutierrez +Chelsea+

Jonas Gutierrez – been nowhere near his best form this season

When we were relegated almost four years ago, the press kept saying we were too good to go down, and  if there was one striker in the team to help us get to safety – it would be Michael Owen.

But Michael was a disaster in the relegation fight, and didn’t even make the starting side once Alan Shearer was installed as manager at the club – even though Kevin Keegan had made him captain.

And what’s happened since he left Newcastle has shown the lad is a spent force, but Newcastle fans already knew that.

And after saying we were too good to go down the press then said in the summer of 209 that we’d drop down the leagues – much like Leeds United had done – but they were wrong on that one too.

We can go down, and if we finish in the bottom three that will be it, and we’ll be in the Championship again – so let’s not delude ourselves into thinking we are too good to go down.

And many players have been nowhere near their best form this season, and they include players like Cheick Tiote, Papiss Cisse and Jonas Gutierrez as just three examples, so if we are going to avoid the drop, then our big guns have to start firing soon.

We don’t want to have to go through another relegation struggle this season, the last one was tough enough – too tough – and we call on our players to fight like hell from now on – and who knows – with a bit of luck we could even get some wins soon.

Howay the Lads!!

    i meant some players are more to blame than others. Tactics have a lot to do with football.

    I should’ve said the Robson era rather than the turn of the century.

    Does aybody remeber the Robson era, the games we used to go and see? So many amazing moments of joy and heartbreak.

    Under Keegan we were given the title ‘The Entertainers’ and under Robson we were given the title ‘The Comeback Kings’.

    In those days we didnt mind going 1-0 down as we knew the players would give thier all owing most victories to quality.

    Seen as we never entertain nor come back, what would be this teams title under Pardew?

    I’d go for ‘The Technical Hoofers’.

    Any others?

    Transfer

    Sounds like a 60’s band that had a number one hit single.

    ”Please welcome to the stage ‘Willo and the Hoofers’ as they perform for you their number single ‘Hit Me Long Baby’.”

    My boss said, play it on the ground,
    And I did, until one day I found,
    That when they pressed I could hoof it far,
    Now I kick, and aim for Demba Ba,

    Hit hit hard, hoof it out of sight,
    Kick it a distance, to get out of this plight,
    I am scared, so I sing this song,
    Baby stay there so I can hoof it long,

    One simple tap, then a great big punt,
    I don’t care, if you call me a cnut,
    My name Mike, and I am not a dick,
    That’s why they aim for me with every free kick,
    My centre parting, and hair that is so wavy,
    Helps me when, you hit me long baby.

    Where did it all go wrong lads?

    One day we were caught in the dreams of exciting football, the next we woke up and the years had gone by and now we play worse football than Stoke City.

    God, how time flys. Well it all comes around again I suppose. We don’t deserve this but we will have the last laugh when we win the Johnstones Paint trophy!!

    Ha ha ha, rumour of the day.

    Alexis Sanchez to Liverpool.

    It is now official, the scousers have taken our mantle of the most deluded in the footballing world.

    did anyone else see Michael Owen when asked who he thought would finish 4th? Arsenal? Everton? He went for fcuking Liverpool…

    Was trying to work out a verse for Willo’s “The Great Defender” to the tune of the Great Pretender but alas work has called…

    Struggling to get the phrases “hoof in the air” and “gives me an erection” into the same verse too..

    Thanks for the nice comments but I cannot take the credit, after all Mike Williamson is an inspiration to us all.

    He shows that through hard work, determination and effort that anyone can achieve their goals, even if you have no talent whatsoever.

    He is like an XFactor winner in my eyes.

    BLOG TASK ALERT:

    Lets create a new song for the terraces based on JD’s great idea, here are the original lyrics:

    Oh-oh, yes I’m the great pretender
    Pretending that I’m doing well
    My need is such
    I pretend too much
    I’m lonely but no one can tell

    Oh-oh, yes I’m the great pretender
    Adrift in a world of my own
    I’ve played the game
    but to my real shame
    You’ve left me to grieve all alone

    Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

    Yes, I’m the great pretender
    Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
    I seem to be what I’m not, you see
    I’m wearing my heart like a crown
    Pretending that you’re still around

    Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

    Yes, I’m the great pretender
    Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
    I seem to be what I’m not, you see
    I’m wearing my heart like a crown
    Pretending that you’re still around (Still around)

    Wonder where we’d be if we had replaced Simpson, wilo and Jonas in the summer with say debuchy, Douglas and a decent winger.

    Upgrade those three please Mr Ashley. Then if you are feeling generous add a striker too

    last season douglas picked up 1 red card

    At least we’ve shown some fight in the last 3 games. I’ll settle for that until the January window opens, then its ‘Over to you, Mashley’.

    sav

    fight is good…the players have shown that

    we just seem to lack a settle or fluid system….if pardew wants to go 433 with cisse wide then he has to give it more than 10/20 minutes in a game

    if he wants to stick with 442 keep going with that

    chopping and changing mid game cannot help.

    If they were to chuck a decent amount of cash into this window.

    We could try:

    In:

    CB – Van Dijk or Sakho (lot more money)
    RB – Debuchy
    CM – Diame (if the clause is 3.5m)
    FW – Remy – If Ba leaves

    Out –

    RB – Simpson (Probably)
    CM – Gosling – If Villa still want him

    Also then have the potential to sign

    CB – Douglas – to arrive for free in summer
    CM – Sissoko – to arrive for free in summer
    LW – Ince – to arrive for free in summer – but will probably go to Man Utd….

    Then in summer

    get tid of Williamson and Gosling (if he’s not gone yet).

    In the 1% chance that has of happening, could imagine a team of this would be awesome:

    ………………………….Krul
    …………….Douglas……..VD/Sakho
    Debuchy…………………………………Santon
    ………………………Coloccini
    ……………..Tiote…………….Diame
    ……………………….Cabaye
    .
    ………….Ben Arfa…………Cisse/Ba (or whoever)

    Bench:

    Elliot
    S Taylor
    Perch
    Anita
    Sissoko
    Marveaux
    Ba/Cisse/Whoever

    ah to dream!

    Probably cost about 20m after outgoings….

    Sage – if we turn up at the KO and sort out the gap in front of defense we are sorted. I will give that one to pardew for free.
