Can Newcastle Atone At Everton For The Hull Debacle?


The English Premier League doesn’t seem to be shaping up as it usually does early in the season, with clubs like the two Manchester clubs out there leading the pack, and at the moment City are in 5th place and United are in 12th place, and it’s their worst start in the Premier league for 25 years.

Fab Coloccini – not happy with Hull performance

That’s not a good stat for new manager Davide Moyes, but he looked calm and collected after they had lost at Old Trafford yesterday by a score of 2-1 to West Brom, and the visitors  even deserved the 3 points.

The fact that some of the top clubs are giving points away so early in the season could be an opportunity for Newcastle to get up there among them, but our loss to Hull was a bit of a sickener, and captain Coloccini was not happy at the defending, or even the attitude of the Newcastle side that day.

But it’s nothing that a win at Everton wouldn’t make up for tomorrow night.

A draw would be a decent result at Goodison Par, but if we are really going to atone for the Hull defeat and conceding three goals against the newly promoted side, then we need 3 points tomorrow  night.

But in our poll 55% think we’ll lose that game.

So the odds of us winning tomorrow, are still not as good as the odds of us either losing or drawing against Hull City were – when 85% of us expected to win the game.

What does all that mean – well I’m not sure. 😀

But  one interpretation could be  that we can win at Everton tomorrow night, and although that looks like a very tough task against a side that seems to be in form, that’s what we need from the lads, and then we’ll be fine – and maybe even in the top eight.

That would be great.

Howay The Lads!!

    I did my fair share of defending the hierarchy at the toon, that’s for sure, and it is a fact we could have easily as a club have sunk maybe been like a Leeds are at the moment, promising youngsters but would not one of them if they wanted to sell me PPI on my doorstep, so we are stable and about were we deserve to be in the prem, but it could have and should have been much more, we all know that we did not build on our season a few years ago, it was a travesty really, ( was it deliberate???) it is being said now many many times that just keep us comfortably in the Premiership actually suites MA all the other distractions Europe, winning cups just heap the pressure on us, our Manger just could not cope at all last season and combusted, that’s why he wont ever be a top manager, he cannot handle big players and is not tactically good enough, I think MA know this as well, just as JK isn’t good enough, yea JK will blow his own trumpet if he does something good in his books, but he blew it big time in that last window, MA JK and PARDEW lied deeply to all us fans, they misled us they manipulated us they took advantage of our forgiving nature, they still take advantage of us, two wrongs do not make a right as we all know and this last summer was unforgivable for me on many counts, how do they rectify the situation??? who know but at the moment, im not for being made a complete mug out of again,Mike is a man who likes to get the good deal, but hates getting done over, thing is there has to be some middle ground, think of the fans the club the feeling in the city which is still mostly flat, think of all this, its more than just about your Elephant size WALLET!!!!

    no idea which newcastle will turn up at Everton. We have no consistency whatsoever, so it’s anybody’s guess.

    just hope its a good game and goes in our favor

    “Martinez is a fantastic manager.” “He gives his teams confidence, and the freedom to play football. I think they’ve got discipline. It’ll make for a tough game.”

    Wonder who that could be a dig at !!!

    Ashley needs the team to do well, especially for Europe .. it will help his Sports D Brand.

    He inherited a Team from Shep, got plenty of Bull from his Advisors what it takes to make and having Big Money Players like Owen, Smith & Xisco to name a few must have been heart breaking with their Contractable Wages. (Is Cisse now one of them acts?) And again what Ashley thinking .. Lets just bring in another, and another ..
    Maybe we should have kept Ba BUT his army of agents had all the pull power 🙁

    Ive a business and it would kill me even if it was a minimum wage member sitting out and and seeing the days go by.

    I think he looking at bigger picture that we will never look at.

    However, we must be BIG enough to see a bit more through the door, that does hurt even me. Ive always worked overseas lots and used to buzz about all news and results that would make headlines world wide and was proud have Newcastle a talk point.

    Hopefully we’ll get those days back!

    Starting tomorrow 🙂 We’ll be above the Man-ure lol

    That’s a post that hits many spots Rooster and it’s frightening that Ashley’s behaviour towards our club appears to have knocked a lot of fans’ enthusiasm and passion.

    What’s the point of spending a lot of money supporting a club that’s showing ambition that extends as far as avoiding relegation?

    Wow, that ambition wouldn’t fire anyone up let alone inspire players who want to win, not not lose!
    I just wish Ashley’d listen to fans, ex players, pundits et al and just show a glimmer of ambition that everyone can latch on to and build on!

    Everything depends on how Arfa will play: if he is on fire then we will win easily this game. For me he is like Messi or Ronalda, he is our key player, the only one who can win us a game. But PL teams know that now and Everton will mark him with two players.

    IMO only 5 players should be the first names on the team sheet: Krull – Colo – Sissoko – Arfa – Remy. All the other players have to do a lot for a regular first-team Spot.

    Hope that Toyote and Kebab will play good like they did two seasons ago, we need them.

    IMO NUFC >>>> Everton. Win 🙂

    Rooster @1 -cannot argue at all with your summing up of the overall situation at SJP. The more read into the situation I lean more and more to the fact that if we hover in mid-table without large expenditures – El Gourdo get all the easy TV money. Introducing cup games into the mix causes extra aggravation in respect of injuries, tiredness, lack of having a larger quality squad – plus the cup games put at risk the potential league placements at the end of the season (or put it another way – puts at risk the TV loot for El Gourdo).
    I suspect that players are realising the lack of ambition at the club – they were probably sold a line -before signing.
    Whilst El Gourdo can do what he likes, as he owns the club, -the recent explanations about the SD advertising at SJP has really just been yet another example of feeding us garbage. The explanation being that the SD adverts were just showcasing to prospective advertisers the advertising spaces/potential. If anyone believes that they must be pretty dumb. Yet another example of a
    a load of tosh spewed out to fans.
    As for greater communication between the club and fans -well I’m all for that but not this contrived misinformation that is put out in a hope that people will believe it.
    As for the anti El Gourdo campaigns – whether it will realise it’s objectives is one thing -but I would not
    criticise any of the fans involved in trying to get a change at the club. If nobody ever complained about
    anything we’d still be living in caves and wearing animal skins.

    Jax, for us to get a 1-1 draw, we have to score a goal –

    If we score it first, they will only get a draw if we sit back and try and defend it and we are just not good enough to do it for any length of time, which means snatching the game in the last 5 mins and try to hang on to it. The fact that Pardew personally coaches the defence says it all, really.

    If they score first, the wind will leave their sails, head will go down and it will take a bit of genious from Ben10, Gouffy, Dreamboat to get us back into the game.

    The team just dont seem capable of taking hold of the game and controlling it at the moment. If you want three points at Everton, you have to be in their faces from the first whistle, press them deep, keep them on the back foot. When was the last time you saw NUFC do that??

    Its a sad predicament for a team I have been supporting for now 50 years – that in itself is a frightening thought!! What has changed in that time? Apart from the stadium – not a lot, really!!!

    That Finnbogason scored again for Heerenveen, got 10 in 7, seems a good finisher with a bit pace looking at videos.
    This stoke norwich match is awful.
    Hoping for a 3-1 liverpool win for my bet.
