This Man Will Be Hugely Disappointed About Yesterday


Mick Martin is another former Newcastle player who has commented on the vast disappointment felt by Newcastle fans, when the club failed to bring in a  top striker yesterday, and we needed one  desperately, and it’s more clear than ever that Mike Ashley doesn’t want to spend big money at Newcastle, which is exactly what the other Premier League clubs have been doing  this summer.

Alan Pardew wasn’t exactly looking great even before yesterday 😀

A one year loan deal for Loic Remy was the only business done by Director of Football Joe Kinnear, and to make things even worse his first piece of business was to stop the move of Brazilian center-back Dopuglas to Newcastle,  after Managing Director Derek LLambias had that deal all ready to go.

This is what Mick Martin said on  Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show this morning:

“Alan Pardew will be hugely disappointed,”   “The manager, chief scout and owner should have four or five players listed and ready before the season starts and they should be in before pre-season training to get them bedded in.”

“The quality we have got is the same quality we had last year which nearly took us down and Mike Ashley surely knows he has to bring some quality and character to the team.”

“Something has got to happen because Alan Pardew can’t continue trying to keep the club alive, without having some sort of quality there.”

If we had just got just one striker through the door on a permanent deal – say Bafe Gomis from Lyon – that would have had us just about clear the bar in this summer’s transfer window, since we kept Yohan Cabaye at Newcastle.

Ramy is the only piece of business that Kinnear accomplished

But we couldn’t even do that – or to put it more accurately – Joe Kinnear couldn’t even do that – since this  is his responsibility at Newcastle, and he gets paid big money for it.

And now there is even more gloom and doom with Newcastle fans, but we suppose we’ll get over it in the coming two week International break.

But we’ll now have to win at Aston Villa a week on Saturday.

    Let’s hope all the rumours about Mikhail Fridman buying the club are true & he gets us back to where we should be as a club

    i’d go 4-3-3 against Villa! Just have a proper go! They are very useful in attack and in Kozak and Benteke they have 2 battering rams if teams sit deep!
    would go with
    Krul,
    Debuchy, MYM, Colo, Santon
    Cabaye Sissoko Anita
    HBA. Cisse, Remy
    Lot of pace, trickery etc in there, gives us the option of Gouffran and Shola off the bench to offer a difference in attack if its not working and we’re chasing a goal or Tiote and Jonas off the bench if we’re up and want to hold it for 15 mins at the end

    Doubt Pardew’s actually that bothered! To be honest all of this transfer business/Kinnear stuff just hides the fact from the world that Pardew just isn’t a great modern manager! If and when the team fails, the outside media will forget that we have 6 full french internationals, the Dutch no.1 keeper, etc, Pardew now has the greatest excuse for failure and he’ll probably walk into his next job because of it

    Looks like we have lost our grip in the french market with the rise of Marseille, PSG , monaco and St Etienne !!!

    This year, it will be very difficult to do business in Jan as there has been loads of movement.

    JoKe just did his job. No players brought in and a couple off the wage bill.

    Remy is only on loan and WILL NOT be signed at the end of it.

    From Ashleys perspective this has been a successful summer. He has not had to put his hand into his pocket but will still be paid huge sums of money to advertise his third rate tat on TV.

    If you hate this regime then don’t support it. Don’t shop at SportsDirect, don’t buy FA and League cup tickets.

    You know it makes sense.

    @TS, Indian – Villa also have a philosophy, a team ethos etc! Even when it wasn’t working results wise last season, they stuck with it and played good football! They are a young, quick vibrant team with Possibly the most effective striker in the division up top! Players like Luna and Tonev look to be top players in the making too, they might have lost 2 games from 3 but they matched Liverpool and Chelsea and played Arsenal off the pitch!

    This article is a joke. Why would Pardew be disappointed about yesterday OR the transfer window in general?

    If I could be arsed to link to Eds article which contained a Pardew interview in which he stated “Me, Fat Mike and Joke sat around a table and decided the team was big and strong enough for the season ahead”.

    He said he was happy with the squad prior to Remy coming and after all of our outgoings.

    Dont make me laugh with this tripe. Stop feeling sorry for anyone but the fans. Even this blog is a shambles with articles like this.

    Should we all be happy?

    In a way, yes.

    Why?

    Can only be one reason we spent the WHOLE of the summer not actually buying in anyone.

    We are being sold very soon.

    I’ve suspected this for some time and I think that MA has a buyer and talks must be quite advanced.
    Finally, something to really cheer about.

    We finnished 5th place with a weaker squad apart from Demba. Luck some may say, but eitherway our first team is top class when we have confidence…
    Last year was ruined by: Injuries, Lack of squad continuity, Lack of confidence, Tactical blunders, Poor at set pieces…

    Buying new players “could” bring some confidence to the existing squad, but so can a good run of games.

    We have replaced Demba with Remy, and I do believe that Remy can link up better with Cissa than Demba. If we stay somewhat injury free we can grow confidence and still be great.

    We need continuity… we are not in Europe, play same team if possible each game. Dont split up the Mbiwa/Colo center backs, never play Mbiwa as left back.

    We need two holding midfielders on the pitch… Cabaye and Tiote to help defenders. Have Sissiko play in front for them. Use Remy and HBA on the wings for quick counter attacks. If midfield plays well, Cissi will start getting the goals…
    Practice set pieces… when we feel we can handle this confidence will grow loads

    Buying new players is not always the best option. Let the new players who arrived in January settle in. It took over a year for Collo to adapt to Premier and that turned out quite ok.

    @Lilongwe Geordie – Didn’t realise it was that many! And thats with Marveaux and Gouffran added to that who are very good players without caps! We do have a really strong squad, seems the media lose sight of this! Even without signings, this side should be top 10 easily! We’ve got a much better squad than swansea, everton, southampton, norwich etc

    im on mikes side on this one, our squad is big enough, although just, the quality is there also, now its up to pardew to prove that he can improve players with time and training.
    which we and mike know that he cant, the targets for the season are set, if alan doesn’t get more from this team then he has got so far then its going to be p45 time.

    exactly, they are building a good team there where they have a system and bring the right men in for it.

    lilongwe

    but who out of those are proper international players who play regular or have done in the past

    krul, colo, cabaye, remy, cisse, debuchy…missing anyone?

    the others like mbiwa, santon, jonas, anita, hba…played a few games but either played a handful or not played for quite a while

    Sage,
    I’d say only Jonas is unlikely to be considered for international duty anymore. The rest will be there or there abouts. Mbiwa, Santon, Anita HBA, Sissoko all have the potential to play regular international football. Tiote is a regular starter.

    I remember you judging our French players because they lost to Brazil when England drew with them at the start of the summer. Brazil went on to thump Spain. Spanish players are average as well?

    of course spanish players aren’t average…but i was going off more than just that game. France only got into the world cup through a play off, no longer in top group of FIFA seeds for qualifying, they have struggled at international competitions as much as england have yet people say they are miles ahead of us.

    I just think the pool of french players isn’t that strong, they have a decent first 11 but even then not many top top players.

    I just think as we wont attract the top french lads (only say cabaye is top that we have) then we need to look in other markets too….german, spanish, polish. ukraine, etc etc

    @Lilongwe, You are, infact, correct at that being a Kinnear quote but he “insists” Pardew was in agreement. If Pardew isnt man enough to defend himself then it must be true. He can’t be sacked for telling the truth. Either way, all 3 were in agreement until a quote suggests otherwise.

    @Indian, Inui is too lightweight. The 2 Sebastians are immense and would walk into our side (Jung and Rode). I have an Eintracht season ticket and right now, its a good time to be watching them. All the fans ask what has happened to us as they have fond memories of the UEFA games and our fans in general.

    If we had better cover on the left side then Inui would be an option. He does track back but offers little defensively.

    I know there are a lot of Pardew haters on here but to say that he won’t be bothered by yesterday is surely pushing it too far. I’m sure he’ll be bitterly disappointed and feel let down like the majority of us fans. He is a football man and wants the team to do as well as possible. Yes in public he’ll show bravado and gloss over it but inside he must be gutted.

    Don’t understand why some people having a go at Wonga for making £1M a week profit?

    Wonga only exists and can only make this sort of profit if people lend money from them?

    People obviously pay them back too, so where’s the problem?

    No one gets a Wonga loan (or any other loan) without surely knowing they have to pay the loan back and that it’ll cost them to do it?

    Jeez, moan about something worth moaning about.

    Besides, some of that profit ended up in our club…well, MA’s pocket – but that’s not the point on that issue.
