    Firstly, what a massive three points.
    That is the most important point.
    In the context of the situation and the game that is all important.
    First half – hugely impressive, good passing, plenty of possession, signings excellent.
    The second half was a surreal situation. Villa had to go for it all guns blazing. Villa’s physicality and aggressiveness was beyond acceptable at times but it was expected. I don’t agree with the tactics in the second half but the result was the most important point in the match and the context of the season.

    What on earth does AP say at half time????
    two games in a row we were useless in 2nd half!!
    sorry, but AP has shown that he can not adapt his team to changes made by opposition, Guti and Shola should not play, they do not have the legs, what did Shola actually contribute??
    great three points but how many heart attacks tonite?

    F##k me first half passing it like arsenal second half hoofing it like derby county.

    Fair play to Villa looked nervy and well rubbish first half. By ther end of the game you would think we had played 4 games in 10 days.

    Sub’s were poor I thought Perch was ace! I liked the way he roughed up Weimann after he’d being bullying Jonas. He does not get enough praise.

    Pardew’s subs were rubbish he should have put on anita for Jonas Sissy should have stayed on and mbiwa for Taylor.

    Mbiwa must be thinking WTF what an I supposed to do?

    Great first half. Need to improve our fitness and pards field a stronger bench. We need a striker. IMHO

    good 3 points – as always good first half , s//t second.
    i am goung to stay with my hunch – pardew to take us down. the reason was there for all to see in the 2nd half. better teams than villa will beat us, and there are a lot of them . sorry pards out.

    @MrMojoRisin76 Fair enough mate that comment was from frustration cause I thought we would start the game negative which was always happening up to this point with Villa. But was I wrong about Jonas? No. That goal he saved for us on the line wouldn’t have even happened if he was subbed off before that. We would of witnessed a different scenario and Villa deserved that goal with all the pushing and team spirit which was out there. Jonas wont get dropped any sooner, we really need to get a Left Winger and a striker and we are set to be a top 5 team in my opinion.

    How anyone can defend Gutierrez after that needs to take the NUFC tinted glasses of. If I was Anita I would kick right off with Pards for benching him when he has been one of our best players in the last few games. Total joke

    First half was class and showed us how good sissoko is. Kept the ball and controlled the game.

    Second half was shocking and that was largely down to villa’s directness. One thing shocked me, how slow is debuchy. After that i can imagine teams just sticking their quickest player against him. Why was jonas kept on? He was terrible. So so bad.

    Got to agree with the majority regarding Jonas. Cannot fathom why or how anyone could defend him tonight. Truly truly awful, I’m worried for him if I’m honest. He must know deep down he has lost everything he had.

    I’m not a ‘neggar’. Far from it.

    Everyone who posts here regularly will know that I’m one of the biggest fence sitters on here – second maybe only to Ibiza. So hopefully when I’m furious and resigned to the fact that Pardew is going to relegate us, it holds more weight than those who constantly rant and moan.

    Those were the tactics of a mad man. Cisse is not a right winger, Anita is not a left midfielder, and Shola Ameobi is not a footballer.

    Feel sorry for Mbiwa, Montpellier captain, won french league, played in champions league this season, french international.

    Loses place to a unfit STaylor (none of the above) who had a good game then got put in centre midfield to look lost and not comfortable.

    Pardew has really annoyed me with his subs this time. I just cant understand it!

    My god Jonas was woeful!

    Boys i am sure we would all have taken a 2-1 win before the match !

    Wait for it here is Pards…..”Lot of work and effort”and ” give anyone a game like that in first half but French players ran out of legs in second half”….

    Top manager, Eh !!

    Well I don’t know whether to be optimistic or pessimistic after that. Sissoko looked class, I think he’ll adapt to the PL just fine. Gouffran decent, no problem there – he has to find the pace of the Pl compared to Ligue 1. On the other side of the coin it seems Pardew is instilling no confidence in these lads. If we have all these so-called ball players i.e Cabaye, Anita, Sissoko, Colo, Santon, then why can’t we play ourselves out of pressure instead of hoofing it up to bounce off Shola and inviting more pressure. AP has got to make the players believe they are as good as they really are. At the minute they are like a rabbit in the headlights. All in all a good result, but tactics like that will not work against many teams.

    I don’t think people understand just how big of a result this actually was.

    We have not won on the road all season, It was a 6 pointer, players coming back from injury, new signings under pressure to perform AND people are still CRYING. Do people not understand confridence and morale was at rock bottom after the Reading game. Infact it has been all season!

    Im gobsmacked at some of the negative comments, and even more so at the slating of Pardew. Erm, hellaw? We have just won man? Yet people still try and find a reason to slate him haha. Get off his back man!

    What hope is there for you’s? He is dammed if he wins dammed if he dosn’t? Comical.

    Reading this blog through that match I could of sworn some posters really wanted us to lose that game just so they could cry at Pardew and back their theorys up. I highly suspect.

    These supporters are 10 a penny. No doubt about it.

    Im absolutely buzzing after tonight, well done lads.

    Next, we will do our upmost to turn Chelsea over at St James. I really fancy a win here.

    HTL!

    I really am struggling to figure out what Pardew’s second half plan was… It wasn’t counter attacking, it wasn’t exploiting the flanks, it wasn’t long ball, it wasn’t high pressing, it wasn’t even a team, it was eleven lads with no shape running around completely unaware of each other. Once again winning at half time, playing well, And Alan noballs Pardew decides to shut up shop? Paul Lambert made positive changes and they were rewarded with a much improved second half. Pardew brought off a DM for an ST, then later a ST for a DM, then a CM for a CB? He doesn’t know what he’s doing, he is the George Bush of football. Player for player we win all over the pitch, any villa fan will tell you that. The only reason for top drawer players running around like headless chickens is tactical inferiority. There is no other reason, some idiot will say ‘ohh its just bad form..’ Bad form only stretches back so far, we have been bad all season, brutal since november. Its got so bad fans are now delighted when we keep a clean sheet at norwich, and scrape a win at villa.. a team beaten by bradford and millwall in the past week. The way we played the last 25 minutes every man in our half, it was like we were playing with 7 men against Barca. We should have the ability to close that game off no problem, pass it around see the game out, create a few chances, maybe grab a third. I think everyone agreed after the reading game that if we lost the villa game pards should go. I imagine even if we had lost people would say, well we got some great signings.. Pardew could sign messi, neymar, the next roy keane and matt hummels and still underachieve, he’s a loser. Also its Graham Carr and our fantastic scouting team that put forward these players names, and its Mike Ashley who got them ‘over the line’.’ What do you think will happen against chelsea and spurs? You can’t sack him after a win, and you couldn’t blame him if we lose to chelsea and spurs.. And after that people will think its too late for a new manager to implement his regime on the squad. I fear for the worst if we keep this clown, it’s not even relegation i’m worried about, just the fact that if he remains manager even if we stay up i think benny and colo will be away in the summer starting a trend, we have great technical players.. they don’t want to play this dire football. If Blanc or Di Matteo were to come in before the summer maybe our stars would give the newcastle project one more year…

    Pardew is determined to put me in an early grave.

    I hope to god that Ashley see’s the light soon and cuts him lose as it’s his negativity that spreads to the players more than anything else.

    Why the hell can’t he get a 90 min performance out of that team???
    45 min performances will send us down

    I just cannot wrap my head around Pardews decision making. Good 3 points we desperately needed them, but Pards almost lost it for us again.

    Good first half, wont mention the second.

    Two things are still needed, Jonas to be dropped and another striker is needed, because if Shola is going to be our only striker on the bench that worries me!!

    strolla came on to win headers and rough a few of them up… he did exactly that, sometimes the big guy needs used and if ever the time it was tonight mbiwa was the same a defensive player on to chase down in mbwia and prevent them playing football, our boys are adapting to a system, they played with heart tonight everyone to a 14th man, they played with fight, a team desperate to win not to draw it was a physical game and they handled it well albeit a bit nervously 2nd half, we are 16th and fighting for wins and if you ask me for the last 20 mins would you want to put the heavies on and bring guns to a swordfight to keep it out, tiote in there up to speed with a run of games in the ACON we’ll do alright!

    …New players and old ones back from injury, but it still looks the same!

    Good first half – it seems we only have one good half in us (wonder what AP tells them in half time – maybe someone should tell him to stop ;))

    I am scareed to be a NUFC fan all my life…

    I am scared to see all this player potential being strangles by an absolute gitt called Pardew…he was absolutelly atrocious again tonight….

    Ashley I dont think is off the hook….he may have bough us players, but half the season down the line..

    But he still delivered…Pardew still has to show that he can manage a team..so far he is absolutely embarrassing…

    Sissoko is a signing of the season….

    we need a player like Obafemi martins as a CF….this wont work…
