Newcastle A Fantastic Club – I Love It Here – Pardew


It seems that Alan Pardew took a little time off this week to go on a coaching course, and it seems to have done him a lot of good, as he realizes just what a fantastic club Newcastle United are – even if we have our ups and downs every season – and they are usually downs – if we are honest. 😀

Alan Pardew – loves it at Newcastle

This is what Alan said in the local press today, and he says he still loves life on Tyneside:

“I went on a league coaching course this week and came away knowing how lucky I am.” “To be manager in front of 52,000 fans is great. It is a fantastic club – I love it here.”

“There is nobody more determined than me to turn this situation around. Hopefully I can do it with my captain.” “No season can be written off. Every season is very important because it builds momentum and confidence.”

“Everton are an example of a team like that. We are where they were last year.” “They had a great second half to the season last year and look where they are this season. They have been injury-free and on a nice run.”

“They have had close games, like the one against us recently when they edged it 2-1. We were winning those close games last year.”

Newcastle fans may be getting just a little concerned with the current situation at the club, with less than two weeks left in this transfer window, and at the very least we need a striker and a center-half brought into the club – and there’s still the Coloccini affair to be sorted out on Monday – and that’s a really bizarre situation for any club to have to handle half way through the season.

Unfortunately it had to be Newcastle.

Some would say – of course.

    SSN Latest:
    Newcastle may have missed out on Loic Remy, but France Football are reporting that the Magpies are very keen to sign St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while L’Equipe claim that the Magpies have held initial talks with Bastia over full-back Florian Thauvin.

    most people here give blame to pardew as well as Ashley.

    The general consensus is that Ashley and co have underspent in the summer, didn’t improve the squad to the right level and left us woefully short of quality and experience outside of the first 11.

    However most people also accept that pardew has made mistake as well and that he hasn’t got the best out of the players when he has had them available.

    Nobody is saying it is easy for pardew but likewise it isn’t the impossible job he is making it out to be.

    I back Pardew and will judge him over the full season, thats my stance. I do, however, call for the immediate dismissal of derek llambias.

    quality cb and Sulejmani that will do for the Jan window.

    As for the Nancy left back, if he’s good and available then get him in. Just because a CB and ST are the priority it doesnt mean you should not be looking to improve other areas of the team too. You can’t stand still in football, something i hope we have learned from the summer window!

    not pardews fault
    – not enough quality in the squad players
    -injuries (except hba, just for you jesper haha)
    -youngsters not having come through as expected

    pardews fault
    -repetitive set pieces, which do not even work
    -not finding a solution to playing ba and cisse in the same team
    -bizarre substitutions in games

    Then there are things open for more debate like motivation of players, caving into Ba, formation, players out of position too often, no real style.shape to the team.

    Just get Danny Graham in! Hes available on the cheap and can do a job in the Premier League. He loves Newcastle and would be more than up for the fight we need players like him. Players that care!

    And in another line coming out of France, L’Equipe are reporting that Nancy left-back Massadio Haidara is still to reach an agreement with Newcastle over his possible move to St James’ Park, with the Magpies understood to have tabled an offer in excess of £2million for the 20-year-old.

    Way to easy an excuse. You talk like it’s a new phenomena. We were rubbish before injuries because of the stupid reversion to 442 when 433 had been magnificent for us and cabs, benny and cisse.

    Playing ba and cisse for so long in a 442 was never going to work. As for injuries, Marveaux has had to wait ages and only just now got a game and should have been played left of a front 3 with ba and cisse rotating in the middle.

    No manager has to tell simmo, willo and krul to hoof it so that we have a worse long balls played record than stoke. It’s by choice not design.

    No manager has to tell the players to sit on a 1-0 lead no matter how early in the game they take the lead.

    No manager has to put Sammi on ahead of Marveaux. Etc , etc

    No manager has to play Shola for 90 mins etc , etc

    If we lose or only draw at home with krul, debuchy, colo, santon and saylor in our defense, that would be unforgiveable.

    @17 agree but the ba/cisse was not as bad as we fans are making it out to be ! look how many goals they scored together in how many games and list the striking partnerships that did better then them.
    most fans was only crying because cisse was not scoring as many as last year and in fairness he was never going to.

    Yes of course, sacking Pardew is the answer, why didnt i think of that! Sack him now, get new manager in who joins after the window closes and gets us relegated.

    All we need are a few signings and a few players back from injury ie Saylor and Ben Arfa.

    And yes Pardew isnt the best manager, but get behind him and the team. Aside from Moyes i dont think anyone could have done much better with the small squad, numerous injuries, players out of form etc. We need to get to summer, stay in the premier league and improve the quality and depth of the squad. Ship out big earners that are in decline like Jonas and fringe players like Gosling and Ranger.

    If all we sign in this window is Debuchy and a centre back, even that will make a huge difference. Shore up the defence but also add quality going forward as Simpson gets all confused when he crosses the half way line.

    The problem with Ba and cisse as a pair is that to get the best out of one the other was sacrificed

    it happened to ba last year then cisse this year.

    They couldn’t play together and both get goals. The team looked good with Ba left but terrible when cisse was to the right.

    I think it had to be one or the other really, especially if Ba wouldn’t play left.

    Rotonda… That’s one fault I can accept… And it was down to him being to soft on ba and cisse. He should have stuck to 443 with ba wide. He funked off anyway so it didn’t placate him. Definite mistake there by pards. But people saying better managers would cope better with injuries, I disagree. Wenger and mancini’s teams both lost form during injury prone times, and their squads are much better than ours. Just saying.

    Transfer Sage, morning mate. It was Pardew’s fault that he thought Ba and Cisse would work – they didnt , and havent for Senegal. When he signed them he said Ba would pkay short, with Cisse the striker furthest up the pitch. Poor research by him and the over vaunted Carr.

    How about looking at Younes Belhanda, he was meant to be moving to Fenerbahce but the deal fell through, hes an attacking midfielder/winger with great vision.

    Why all the negativity towards Danny Graham he would be a good signing for the squad he knows how to score in the premier league and the two main points hes a geordie and he supports the toon thats worth more than anything in my book.The chances are he would stay loyal also.

    He will definitely start Shola.

    I just don’t get what it is with Shola, he’s been at the club through a hole heap of managers, but every single one of them has seen something in him and given him a place in the squad, why do we not see anything in him on the pitch?
