Great Chance To Wipe Out Season’s Disappointments


Newcastle have at least 13 games still to play this season, 11 league games where hopefully we can pick up as many wins as possible, and we have at least a two-legged tie against Russian side FC Anzhi Makhachkala and at least another two games in Europe if we can make it through that tie.

Alan Pardew – still along way to go this season

And Newcastle fans seem upbeat since we signed four players in four days in January, and that was after we had just missed out on Loic Remy who chose to go to QPR instead of Newcastle – we wonder how he feels about that now – with the London side still 7 points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.

Newcastle have injuries to Tim Krul and Fabricio Coloccini, but with the squad a lot stronger we may not miss them as much as we would have a couple of months ago.

Rob Elliot has looked a good goalkeeper when he’s played in the first team, and Yanga-Mbiwa will get his chance tomorrow to show he should be starting every game for Newcastle – somewhere along the back four.

And Alan Pardew is certainly upbeat about the rest of the season, as he had this to say to the local press today:

“We have corrected some of the mistakes we made and no more than that at this stage.” “There is still a long, long way to go in this season for all the teams, still a lot to play for.” “We have the Europa League as a real bonus for us.”

“ We have managed to play well in that competition all the way through it, even with all our injuries, so that’s something we can look forward to after Swansea.” “We haven’t won a trophy here for many a year and yes there is a bit of jealousy.”

“They won that trophy fair and square. Forget about the final because they beat Chelsea over two legs to get there and that deserves a trophy in itself.” “The manager has come in to play a certain way.”

“We don’t play total football like Swansea, but we hope to carry on in the winning vein we have been playing in recent weeks.”

Let’s face it Newcastle have an excellent chance to make up for the terrible disappointments of this season so far, and we could go on a surge through the rest of the season, and we could surprise ourselves about where we can end up in the Premier League and how far we go in the Europa League.

We’re willing to be very surprised on the positive side on how far we go in both competitions.

Howay The Lads!!

    I’m going to cover all of the bases here.

    What is he saying? Fool. Pardew out!

    and..

    Some good words there, let’s finish this season on a high and show that the first half of this season were just a blip. Let’s start that by getting 3 points off Swansea.

    Pardew is so poor that I went to his house and tore down some cob webs, and he said “Who’s tearing down the drapes?”

    Pardew is so poor that when Rainrix unplugged his Sports Direct night light Pardew said “Don’t turn off the heating”

    Ed I bet Remy sleeps just fine with his high wage and being out for the rest of the season !!

    The guy ended up getting like a 50% wage increase for doing nothing for 6 months and will leave again in the summer

    I would not take him in the summer as he has been injury prone but would anyone take a punt on Hoillet in the summer if he became available on a free transfer?!?

    When he was at Blackburn he would have been awesome for us and he also qualifies as home grown

    I would love us to beat Swansea at the weekend could potentially bring us up to 11th in the league unfortunately Mackems will probably beat Fulham at home so we need a win to keep them below us!!

    I have a lot of bottled up rage and I like to project that via subliterate comments about individual NUFC players every day via a pseudonym on a football blog. I used to do it about Williamson and Simpson whether or not they played well, but unfortunately they have been dropped – I have moved on to Jonas now, and Shola, who plays as a sub sometimes so I can still do it for 20 minutes, but I am worried that if these two don’t play, who is left?

    I have been working on a personal vendetta for Gouffran and Coloccini offline – so it will be ready for when they have a bad game or two. But I am worried about the future when Ben Arfa’s back and Jonas is on the bench. Who can I attack?

    About the “n word” has anybody ever seen the greatest movie ever “Blazing Saddles” by Mel Brooks? 😀

    Disclaimer: I know it is another “n word” and it is all just in good fun

    Anyone else see Piers Slimeball Morgan on BBC predictions?

    “Normally I’d go for a Newcastle victory against Swansea, but rather like Ant and Dec’s careers their form has been going drastically down hill in recent weeks.”

    The smug, self-aggrandising waste of semen probably wrote that gag a month ago when he worked himself up into a frenzy about being invited to do predictions with Lawro on the BBC website and couldn’t bear to change his material in the name of rational contextualisation.

    God I hope Spurs destroy Arsenal this weekend…

    Jesper…It seems no one wants to touch that topic 🙂

    But yes, I have seen it and it is a funny film (but not the best ever).

    Devon…What a prat. Recent weeks? Jog on Piers.

    Dok… That’s more like it.

    Santon…Whilst good, I’m afraid it has already been used today. Rainrixs lawyers will be in contact shortly.

    May not be the greatest film ever, but certainly the funniest. IMHO
