It’s Not Been Good Enough For A Team Like Newcastle United


Mathieu Debuchy has been interviewd today in the local press, and he freely admits last season was just not good enough for a team such as Newcastle United.

Mathieu Debuchy – it’s not been good enough

Mathieu has played well in some games since he arrived, and he’s also had some poor games, such as the 6-0 debacle against Liverpool at St. James’ Park, when he managed to get himself sent off in the second half, just to make things a little worse.

This is what the27-year-old Frenhc International had to say today:

“It’s not been good enough for a team such as Newcastle United to do what we did in the last campaign and everyone knows that.” “We will do better next time.” “There is a determination within the squad to improve next season. We want to do a lot better.”

“The Premier League is a very difficult league to play in, but by the same token it’s an interesting one as well.” “Why is the league difficult? It’s because every match is difficult and I do mean every single one.”

“You have some of the best players in the world in England right now, so the level in all games is of a really high standard.”“That is a challenge for me, but it’s a challenge I wanted,  when I decided to join Newcastle United in the first place.”

“I have really enjoyed the first four, five or whatever months I’ve had here.” “It’s gone really well for me one and off the park.” “I thought Sunday was a decent performance to end the season with. We did OK and it’s just a pity we conceded the goal when we did.”

Debuchy has been called up, along with his pal Yohan Cabaye, by French manager Didier Deschamps for their two friendly games against Brazil and Uruguay in South America in June.

And since both Yohan and Mathieu played in the Euro 2012 last summer, it’s just a pity they couldn’t have a complete break this summer from football, with pre-season training due to start in early July.

    Indian look at it this way, you get to make more of those cute little Pardew voodoo dolls for at least a few more months. 7 more years if you’re lucky.

    @ Indian
    Not a day goes by on this blog when you are not ranting at the manager / players

    I for one won’t miss your relentless negativity – if you decided to “support” another team xx

    Letting him loose til Christmas etc… he’s had since last Christmas til the end of this season! And Bosingwa has gifted us 3 points against QPR to help keep us up.

    People forget about his Europa excuses, that omce we were out we’ll see a big difference once they have a week in between games… yet we put on an abysmal performance against Liverpool and struggle when West Brom were there for the taking after we had a decent first half.

    How can he change for next season, when only against Arsenal, last game of the season when he was complaining that he couldn’t bring Shola on to launch the ball to!

    He’s not learning… and he’s not here for a learning curve, he’s supposedly here to get us up the league as much as he can. What a disgrace he is.

    I concur with hatem. Bad start = another season wasted. Even a change of manager in september onwards will mean we wont kick on for another season. oppurtunity wasted.
    Indian – some of us cant change allegiance. I t would be like sawing of our own knob

    You have wasted 12 years!!
    I attended my 1st match in 1953, however, it is
    now a waste of time with the current regime, if
    their best shot is Broken Brain – AP.
    I will now resort to watching the matches on the
    internet. A rest from our type of football is overdue
    until MA and DL address the managerial situation.

    2 hours …
    This will go on until we see where we are after 6-10 games.
    Too many fans dislike him and his style of play.

    If we have a good start then people will quieten down, if its a bad start the knifes are already out.

    Ah balls to it, I can’t stay positive, I understand people want positivity but how we can do that with a manager who is so limited with one coaching style, that I was being coached at the age of 10(im 28 now) because of the shite that is the FA, and Pardew follows that style.

    The proof is in the pudding as they say, he has one good season then fails because people find him out, he has ruined good quality players such as Cabaye, Cisse etc with negative tactics and a love for a “work horse”.

    Puppet – Yeah I think that be a good thing for him, as long as he gets played as a striker. he can run in behind and stretch teams with his pace.
    I still cant get over how small he is though haha, if your good enough, you are tall enough as they say.

    It’s been the same song with the Pards haters. He’s clueless and if you disagree you’re an idiot-type thing.

    I’m not crazy about Pardew either but to slate other fans or stop supporting the club all together, get real people..

    It’ll be a good season.
    Stick a photo of Rio2014 on the dressing room wall so all our young internationals walk passed it onto the way to the pitch.

    Any of us could get top ten this year, with this squad … the year after is when Pardew will have us relegated.

    Indian – I never said you were not a fan. You stated you were off to support another team.

    TADS – you don’t need to fight my battles mate. I could write a few paragraphs, as STUART likes to do, about my toon devotion but can’t be chewed 🙂

    Stuart no9@14

    Agree.
    You have different type of fans. You have the social fans and you have the football nerds. They will see this decision in a total different way… The football nerds can clearly see that 5th and 16th are just numbers, and that the possibility to dominate and win matches are very slim with Pardew and his philosophy. As other teams adapt to the modern setup we will find it harder and harder to get points, also from the “lesser” teams in the league.

    As long as Pardew is at the helm i have no other option than to dissociate myself a bit from the daily Newcastle gossip as Pardew actually makes me a bit depressed. First time in 25 years!

    I would happily see pardew replaced but its not happening it doesn’t mean I’m going to stop supporting the club, stop watching them religiously stop going to games as often as I possibly can

    It’s just plain stupid, I genuinely think there are a few that would rather see us bottom of the league at Christmas just purely so pardew gets the boot rather than see him turn it around and have us top 6 at Christmas
