Alan Pardew – The Board Will Help With New Signings


The display yesterday was a lot worse than we expected, even when we saw the team sheet and it was obvious Alan was not playing his players who will start next Saturday at Carrow Road except maybe David Santon and possibly Mike Williamson.

Newcastle United V Everton - Premier League

Mathieu Debuchy – will make debut next Saturday at Norwich

But the performance is what has riled the Newcastle fans – and it was just not good enough – it lacked passion – it lacked skill and it lacked endeavor – as we said it wasn’t good enough.

And maybe at the end of the game the manager grasped how much this display has hut him personally, because Newcastle fans never want to see their players lack fight – in any game – whoever they are.

This is what the manager said last night:

“I would like to see a player come through the door over the next week. I never thought we would be in this situation in the summer.”  “But the window is open now and we need to help the squad. The Board are going to help me.”

“The only one I could have played at the start was Sylvain Marveaux who I thought could help us late in the game.”  “We wanted to put a better side out for fans, but were not able to it.” 

“The most important thing for us, I’m afraid, is our Premier League status.”  “We have put ourselves in danger, and we’re not hiding from that, so we need our best players back.”

Fabricio Coloccini, who had another hamstring strain, Papiss Cisse, who has a calf problem should make the game but it seems that James Perch is now doubtful.

We don’t know if Steven Taylor and Yohan Cabaye will be ready for our 17th last league game of the season, and if they are not ready we shouldn’t play them – as we already paying for bringing Ben Arfa back too early for the Fulham game.

Of course we expect Mathieu Debuchy to make his debut for the club – and he should help the defense (and attack) big time.

We have 51 points to play for, and if we can get half of the points up for grabs – say 25 – then we should be safe – but we need wins to get ourselves up that league table.

Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa and Jonas Gutierrez at least have a chance of making the Carrow Road match.

    Debuchy alone should make a world of difference.

    How many times a game have we seen Simpson venture forward only to send his cross miles off his target man or out past the goal line. He is much more suited as a defensive specialist and that’s it.

    We need quality in not just anyone, we need a recognised center half and not some second division player who’s a prospect a Toby Alderweireld or a Sakho, if we can get a striker in as well then good, but a center half has to be the priority

    Not all managers are all high maintenance. Clough built teams on the sum of the parts, ie average players who pulled together, never spent millions.

    I just dont see why Remy would leave Marseille to play for QPR who have got like a 60/70% chance of going down this season, yes he’ll get a big payday but he’ll be moving clubs again in the summer…. There surely isnt any comparisson between nearly 52500 supporters at home games and 18000..

    Oh and Ameobi and Zamoro…

    I agree, no more U21’s, we need a senior player who can have immediate impact.

    Maybe he just wants the higher wages and he’ll bail out like Ba at West Ham.

    It’s doesn’t matter who the manager is as Willo, Simpson, Perch and a load of other will still be below average and not worthy of wearing our shirt.
    There are better options out there other than Pardew but they would still need to be backed by Ashley, which would not happen

    So what pardew all talk and no action. Just buy the players we need! And don’t keep saying one more player! It’s obvious to all the fans that we need a miracle now IMO. We should be bidding for players and getting them in ASAP no fooling around and haggling for bargain. We need to hurry the fuc* up before its to late

    We should not get overhyped by Debuchy playing! It will only infuriate us when he doesn’t have a great game! He needs time to settle, I’m expecting him to look as lost out there on Saturday as the rest of them.
    Lets not pin our hopes on him too soon.

    Jack – I mentioned last night about Toby Alderweild not travelling with the Ajax squad to Brazil, its came after weve apparently bid £8million for someone in Holland aswell

    BUT:
    There was also reports last night that he will sign for Arsenal after they agreed a fee, I find thi hard to believe though to be honest

    If we sign:
    Sakho/Alderweild
    Remy
    None of these will be able to play in Europe for us

    These comments are a worry. Like to see/one player. You have got to be kidding. We have massive games coming up and if we don’t have a centre half signed pronto, we could go down IMO. Why the delay? What do the people behind the scenes who do the transfers do for 10 months of the year!

    Rotonda: Clough was the first manager to spend £1m on a player. He would regularly turn a sows ear into a silk purse, but he also splashed the cash.

    Would you rather pardew said nothing at all and pur absolutly no public pressure on the board at all? Can you really not see that by coming out everyday and saying we need players he is publicly challenging the board?
    Or when you say
    “So what pardew all talk and no action. Just buy the players we need!”
    Do you actually think pardew makes approves and pays for the signings

    We targeted De jong in summer when we still had Ba so we need 2 forwards. Debuchy has come in eventually so full back is covered til Simpson leaves then we need another presuming Raylor is to be left back cover when fit again. It goes without saying that in an ideal world Williamson should be forth if not fifth choice at cb so 1 or 2 more needed. That is at a minimum due to frugality over the last few transfer windows our squad is thread bare and needs about 6 new signings of real quality but in the real world thats just not going to happen. Sad times for the Toon

    Jack butler how can you keep defending pardew saying it is the lack of depth that is the reason for our slump. Granted that is part of the bigger picture but the fact remains our team is showing no desire, fight organisation and with his terrible subs and putting cisse on wing its a large part down to pardew. Another manager WOULD make a difference anybody could see this.

    Spot on, Debuchy has just arrived, and won’t necessarily slot straight in and perform to his level. I think those expecting an immediate fix could be in for a nasty surprise. It may be that we don’t see the best of him at all this year. It took Anita virtually half a season to start playing at closer to his level.

    Ah Pardew can’t do right regardless these days. Saying this means we are in negotiations with atleast 1 more player imo. Hopefully more but with players coming back the board will probably bail out on us again

    89Norcal. Very much correct. The team wins the ball to play passes to keep the ball, to try and create an opening, which then goes out to Simpson venturing forward into acres of grass yet over comes the 85% probability of an abysmal cross which I could put over with my very poor left foot. This abysmal crossing is just another word for turning over possession. Aka “Here have the ball back and attack us again.”

    Debuchy can cross quite well, so there should be a decent improvement with successful crosses, therefore a higher probability of chances created. More chances created leads to a higher probability of goals, which in turn means we may get more points. All this from providing better crosses… Jonas and Mr. Pardew also take note please.

    I no what u both saying! Yes it’s up to the board. What I’m saying is how many silly interviews pardew does. It’s starting to grind on me how much of a puppet he is. He needs to grow a pair of balls and DEMAND the cash for players now or walk like keegan did. Sounds harsh but it’s the only way. The board are making him look as big of a idiot the the man himself!!

    I think we need a top quality CB, CM and CF as a minimum this window – especially with tiote away.

    The CF should have pace and be adept on the wing or as part of a 3 man forward line.

    The CM should have defensive qualities and be good at pass and move. Someone who can hold off a player – seen us bullied off the ball far to much this season.

    The CB should be top quality, have strength and pace and ideally be a target man at set plays.

    In the summer we need to get rid of willo, Simmo and gosling (I’d give obertan one more season used as a super sub on LW).

    Demote sammy back to development squad (he needs to learn basics like not being lazy). Loan out tav and dummet.

    Finally, buy quality youngsters (at least at bigi level) who could do a good job at backing up RB, CB, CF and a winger.

    Hi I’ve never posted before and I have always backed Pardue but now feel it is time for him to go. I feel it would be pointless to allow him any new signings when he has clearly lost the dressing room. 10 defeats out of 12 clearly shows this, which other manager would still be here. I think Ashley will find it easier to sack him and blame him if we are relegated than spend 15/20 million to save us.

    Is anyone else worried that we are going to bring in another striker and that’s it? Pardew keeps saying replaceing ba is top priority, and in this interview he states “A” player will be coming in hopefully this week, and I’m getting the horrible feeling we are going to bring in only a striker and that is it when for the last 2 seasons now our weakest position has been CB.. I don’t understand why we don’t just loan a player or 2 and spend everything we have on a top quality CB to partner collo before we leak more stupid goals due to either willo’s incompetance, who I used to say is championship quality at best, but after the Brighton game it’s clear he is less than that, or perch being played out of position at CB

    I’m genuinley afraid for our future if we do not sign a defender this window 🙁

    please stop complaining about cisse on the wing, he did it last season with ba and nobody complained when cisse was banging them in, he did it this season with ba, and nobody complained when HE was banging them in either, that one game with Ameobi up front was a one off pards said pre match it was due to ba going on match day and cisse would play through the middle next game.

    A player this week
    A player next week?

    Transfer window runs for another 3 weeks. Im sure Parfew wants at least a CB to go with a striker, but maybe he’s saying what he is because he knows we’re close to landing a player in the next 7 days and our negotiations for other players will take longer.
