    so the whan the new manager gets told he is not allowed to choose his players that is left to joker and aslong as the starting 11 are eperieced enough he has to use youngsters or cheap obatan type players and finally that if cashley wants to sell a player he can the manager will still accept the job.
    your having a laugh we instead will get that boss of Blackburn last year or joke Kinnear.

    Honestly, I never want to see Steven Taylor in a Newcastle shirt again.

    And if we had a different manager, that would probably be the case. No doubt that Pardew will have him back in 3 games.

    Tim Krul was probably the best player 2nite & he conceded 4 goals but really could & should have been many many more. The rest were gutless, no passion showed. One shot on target all night – Tiote from about 40 yds. Agree with JB need Ince & McCarthy from Cabs money plus maybe Eriksen but just won’t happen. Loan players at best but need extra cover in all areas & players prepared to battle for the cause

    not collo, jeez the last goal was quite shocking, City are a bought team, its financial doping, great players, great to watch, but quite possibly causing irreparable harm to the game. We have become whipping boys, but Jesus the money being spent is almost morally bankrupt.

    Debuchy was absolutely crap!!! And throwing the ball way for his yellow shows what a bad professional he is. Didnt expect a win but every player looked sad and had no joy for starting the premier league again. I was realy looking forward to a positive display but my team has given me a sour taste. Shame on you.

    You don’t think Ashley would sell if a good offer came in? Because that’s contrary to the message that he has been putting out for years now. They’ve always said that if a good offer comes in, the club would be sold.

    And Ashley made £200m profit? Eh? I assume you mean from Sports Direct, not Newcastle? :/

    It was nice to see Dummett getting a run, despite the circumstances. He didn’t do anything particularly amazing but he was very, very tidy.

    I genuinely though pards after all his guff this pre season was going to pick players on form, but sadly no, dummett the only positive from pre season was dropped and there was Taylor bang in the middle, again, as always, no matter how sh1te

    Agree, hopefully his confidence won’t be absolutely crushed as we flounder around the foot of the table and drop out of the cups to league 2 teams this season.

    Hope he gets adequate game time – LB is actually a position we’re well stocked in, and I thought Haidara looked one of our best players last season.

    Saylor made a bad error of judgement 2nite which I’m sure he now regrets as naive but the lad is NUFC through & through. He always leads the lads to applaud the fans especially at away matches win,draw or lose but very injury prone. Hope this does not signal return of Willo the weak!

    Ashley will always sell if the money is right, he has no tie’s to this club or the region other than financial one’s, but finding anyone to meet his asking price is like trying to find rocking horse sh*t

    It’s 1 result, let’s not all jump on the ever-present Ashley out bandwagon just yet.

    His response to Arsenal’s bid was pretty good to be fair: “which part of him do you want?”

    My concern is I think Cabaye is seen not just by fans but also his fellow players as integral to the squad. If he leaves others may be headed for the exit too. We brought good, international standard footballers in on the premise of top 5 challenges and bigger and better things. Those footballers are not currently playing to their potential. Something needs to change but I’m not convinced it needs to be as drastic as ousting the owner, manager etc.

    Retaining Cabaye would send out a real message of intent and have a great effect on the squad. Selling him could be catastrophic in terms of ten ripple effect (and, let’s be honest, in terms of the lack of replacement).

    A good response from Ashley to Arsenal would have been ‘Keep your money he’s not for sale’ but we all know that Cabaye will be off sooner rather than later, only question now is whether it’s to Arsenal, PSG or Man Utd

    Same as before Cabs sold for £20M .No immediate replacement. Make do with what we’ve got. Ash pockets £12M maybe spend £8M at Christmas when matters have become desperate.

    Leads the lads? How? He constantly puts the team under pressure, made an error? He makes that fcuking error over and over, every game, shirt pulling, handball’s etc, its a joke
    But it’s okay he stays and claps the fans who travel up and down the country to watch the tw@ pretend he’s a footballer

    yet again but this is not pardews problem it is that fat bastard Ashley

    like I said to BPC about forwards in that he has no choice as he only has shola and cisse right now and shola would be bad to get started.

    who else does he have then that can replace saylor.

    we have got debuchy santon colo willo saylor raylor hadaira and mbiwa at the minute but santon injured raloyr injured hadaira I think is on loan willo will be not welcomed as a starter.
    so all we are left with is saylor colo debuchy and mbiwa
    as for dummett well that would have been stupidest o things to get starting him.
    why the f did w sell perch and simmo not replacing them

    That wasn’t an error of judgement. It was downright stupid. And the worst thing is it’s not the first time I’ve seen him do something like that. I know every team has a player like that, close to the wire, but that was sheer lunacy and he made an already impossible task more difficult.

    The most disappointing thing or me tonight was the lack of discipline and the loss of control when the going got tough. Colo was the only one of the back four to keep his cool, Tioté and Sissoko both flew into too many tackles and too many players couldn’t hold their line/stick to their position. This left gaps which City all to easily exploited.

    Whatever happens before a game, it is the manager’s job to galvanise a squad and make necessary changes. Pardew blaming the result on the Cabaye situation is nothing short of cowardice in my view.

    Here’s a good deal – if PSG offer us £12m for Cabaye we’ll chuck in Dubuchy absolutely free.

    Time to try Santon on the right I reckon.

    you cant just blame pardew for this league 3 side he has put together, Ashley – kinnear- pardew , look at those 3 names, 3 names that wouldnt know class if a big concrete slab fell from the sky with class written all over it, and hit them on the head, the 3 have to go, newcastle will not recover from this ,and if they do , it will be half a dozen games from now but they will be rooted to the bottom of the league and will be too late anyway,
    People who know football will probably know , tonight they have witnessed the worst team the prem has ever seen with the worst perfomance the prem has ever seen, tonight was ashleys night , his 5 year plan starting to take effect, the 5 years he has predicted it will take before nufc are the laughing stock of world football and not give us a sniff of a chance to to rectify it.
    Dont think because 52000 fans turn up at SJP for the next game it will make them play better – it wont, this performance has shaped us for the season- the long miserable season ahead,
    We were lucky tonight – it should have been 8 , if i was the man city manager i would be ripping into my team for wasting so many chances, luckily it wasnt man u or chelsea we were playing .They have to go. we must boycott . demonstrate , anything to get rid of these 3 coz that tonight was just not acceptable. BOYCOTT.

    I’ve heard from a couple of people that Ashley wants to sell us to some Americans and he wants to buy rangers…Anyone else heard this?
