Pardew – We Must Get Good Players In During January


Alan Pardew – a distraught Alan Pardew – has come out after the game and said what most fans have been saying for some weeks now – that we must spend in the January transfer window, if we are going to maintain our Premier League status.

mathieu debuchy arrives

Mathieu Debuchy – he’s a great signing – but we need more

And we suppose one good thing about going on another four game losing streak, is that it may cause Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias to loosen the purse strings at the club.

We didn’t bring enough players in during the summer, and it will be daft to wait until this summer – because we could be relegated by then and selling some of our best players – so let’s buy say four players this January.

This is what Alan Pardew said after the game today:

“Not once this season have I had my best side out. We’re not too big to go down,” “I think it is important to spend. We lost Cheick and Demba, one to African Nations and one to a transfer. The most important thing for us is our Premier League status now because we’ve put ourselves at risk with all the injuries and the run we’re on.”

“We need to make sure we’re a Premier League side next season. We’re not hiding from that. We need our best players back.” “I’m a bit aggrieved I can’t put out a stronger team than that because there are young players who gave everything.” “Unfortunately they shouldn’t be playing for Newcastle in the third round, they should be in our development team.”

“But that’s where we’re at. We didn’t have enough good players on the pitch. That team is a shadow of the team we can put out. We never thought we’d be in this position. We should have brought in one or two more. We’re paying the price.”

Shola Ameobi, who was captain for the day managed yo add to our woes, as he was sent off for the second yellow card he received in the second half, but in truth they were both very soft yellow cards.

We’d like to see Douglas, Loic Remy and Moussa Sissoko brought in before February rolls around – then we could be in business – with Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor back within a week or two – and Mathieu Debuchy now at the club.

There’s six top class players right there.

    Paying the price indeed.
    But the paying will stop, it will for sure.
    Starting at Norwich.

    Pay the price for fcuking players in the Summer or even at the start of Jan. It’s now the 6th and we have got 1 player.

    Should have been tied up early December.

    What we saw today was what we will be left with if we get relegated. Not very pleasant. I have not slagged Ashley before, ever, but the club has definitely gone backwards in his stewardship.
    When we last got relegated the squad was far stronger than the current one.
    If / when we get relegated our top players will be off; Krul, Cabaye, Debuchy, Santon, Cisse, Tiote, will be gone. Possibly followed by; Collocini, Marveuax, Obertan, Jonas. What price loyalty? Not what we’re prepared to pay.
    The future is bleak. The future is black and white.

    Probably because pardew doesnt buy the players
    I know ppl are sick of hearing him say the same line but tbf all he’s doing is putting more and more pressure on the board to pull there finger out and get some buisness done
    Over to you mr ashley…..

    Don’t forget 2013-14 (next season) is a world cup year.

    All internationals or bordering internationals will want to leave.

    It will be like Birmingham, but even worse!

    1892 – I think I got called an ITK a whole back as I work closely with the some of the medical teams in Ligue 1, 2 and a handful of top flight English clubs. However I WISH I was ITK!

    All I will say is I’m in France now and everybody is very hush hush about the possibility of an NUFC contingent being in the country. Normally everything is so open around here. But it’s all a bit cloak and dagger.

    Time to stick the diplomacy as far as am concerned. He’s going to lose his job either way at this rate either he openly show the world what’s going on or he’s painted as a puppet who can’t manage a PL team

    I firmly believe he wanted more in the summer (clearly when Raylor went down) and was told no chance make do

    They need to be all loaned out ffs.

    Just bring in established players for a while & stop signing kids that shouldn’t be anywhere near the first team.

    And when I say established players, I dont mean Joe Cole etc etc on crazy wages.

    Shola is shit. The only positive out of today’s game for me is he will not be available next week. Harsh? Maybe, but he was not a captain today. He is a joke.

    Dannyo you can call me a Mackem again if you’d like. Maybe it will help you feel better knowing you were wrong.

    Ye, it’s clear he wanted more. But AP aint the type to give public stick.
    We’ll just have to hope he pressures the board as much as possible, and that they actually realise the danger here atm.

    we are another Leeds, if we manage to get 4th bottom thats all we are good for, but I think we are going down again, Norwich, Reading and Villa up next, all must win games, 3 or 4 new signings wont help us this season

    Dannyo, Forren hasnt been picked up yet.
    Do you believe he would suit Newcastle?
    What I like about him is that he`s good in both boxes and seldom hoof the ball away? Never loses his calm either.

    Firstly, I am not Pardew’s biggest fan but Pardew can’t win with some people. He is criticised for NOT saying ‘we need more players,’ and then he is criticised again for saying the same thing!

    Injuries has had a massive impact on our season.
    The board not investing in the summer has caused issues throughout the season.
    The players and the manager have to also take some of the responsibility as to where we’re currently positioned.

    However, keep the manager, keep the continuity, keep believing – more likely to bring success.

    With the potential new arrivals rumours, reports of a Toon delegation on the Continent, Percy stating we need new players in public (as if hes just released the fact) -to me it’s obvious Ashley has authorised a big spend.

    Am sure the board realize it just whether they care enough to push us up the table or they are happy to fight relegation am sure everyones contract is sorted this time so tubs doesn’t have to cover us in the championship again.

    Suppose we could get Best back though, boy do I miss him

    Pardew, all talk no action. I just hope come the end of January we look back and are happy with the acquisitions we make. Talking of our next three games, with the form we are on at the moment, I can see us getting 4-5 points. We keep saying how important the next game is and its a must win, I’d rather see us keep to our word and win them as opposed to just talking about them. God, I’m pessimistic. On a happier note, I like what you’ve done with the page header Ed; Debuchy, Debuchy!

    I would love yo to be right but not a hope
    Remy heavily tipped to go to QPR £110 k a week we simply can’t compete it’s not even close
    Our pay structures the problem and ashley is not going to introduce the salary cap unilaterally

    So sick of Pardew and his predictable spin on what was a fcuking pathetic display.

    The interview on ESPN posted by Turkish Mag when Pardew was first appointed was 100% accurate,

    Pardew tries to pretend to be a modern thinking coach but has no idea how to implement a consistent pass and move system.

    As he did today when the team runs out of creativity he reverts to route one hope to get a lucky bounce football.

    He is a conman as was stated on ESPN when he signed .

    No idea how to manage skillful technical players .

    HE HAS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
