Don’t Be Surprised If Newcastle Surprise Us On Saturday

9:42 am, Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Looking forward to the game against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, it’s the early kick-off game at 12:45 pm, we keep thinking of what happened in April, when we were ripped apart 6-0 in our worst defeat at St. James’ Park in decades.

Alan Pardew – can he get the win against Liverpool?

Then we think back to our defensive displays against Manchester City and Everton this season, when we looked just as bad as we did in April, when we  conceded 9 goals in successive games at home against Sunderland and Liverpool.

So you then put two and two together and conclude that we could be in for a very tough game on Saturday afternoon.

But Newcastle have a way of surprising their fans – both on the upside or downside – so when 85% of fans thought we would beat Hull City we lose – and we were simply awful in that second half.

So perhaps the same thing will happen in reverse, and because there is a fear that Newcastle will get walloped again on Saturday – especially if Coloccini is missing – the lads will play their hearts out and get a result – and even a win.

Obviously that would be great (make that fantastic) and would be a boon before our next game at Sunderland.

Let us know how you think the game will go on Saturday.

    As you say Rotonda. I don’t blame Remy for wanting another club after this loan period. I don’t blame Cabaye for wanting to leave either.

    Playing for Pardew is like selling timeshares in Fuengirola with a master degree from Harvard. You know you could do better with you life…

    I doubt we will win but you never know. We may not play well as a team all the time but we have players capable of individual brilliance which can win us any game so I never rule out a win.

    On the remy situation…why worry. Everyone said we couldn’t replace Carroll, we got Ba, couldn’t cope without ba’s goals, we got cisse, he then stopped scoring and Ba left, we got remy. There is always somebody else.

    I want your analogy to go viral, it’s an absolute classic.
    Bit of genius there my son.

    Yes, Newcastle could surprise us and go down by 6 goals again and Pardew will deserve the boot afterwards along with the board. We are still not far away from our relegation form of last year and St James’s Park should be our invincible home. Hope I am wrong !

    Can see us getting turned over purely for the fact that apart from Remy up top our failure to sign a CB will come back to haunt us! heart will always sa6y win but my head says we will get butchered hope im wrong!

    Worried about how our defence will cope with Suarez and Sturridge? Even with Colo we’d have struggled but I hope he brings in M’Biwa because we will lack pace for sure with Taylor and Williamson. At the other end though we can create havoc too with Remy a and Goofy so we have to be brave and push on. Formation has to be 4-3-3 however I would play the following.
    Kruhl
    Debuchy – Williamson – M’Biwa – Santon
    Tiote – Cabaye – Sissoko
    Gouffran Remy. Gutierrez

    Problem when we got tanked last time we started without Ben Arfa or Goofy their first goal was by a defender who ran at least 35 yards through our non existing midfield & defence by the time Pardew woke up & realised he had dropped a bollock the fans were already out, possibly to avoid the humiliation all of us who stayed on to the finish suffered. Teams that have done well against Liverpool last season & this are those that get in their faces .

    Frank Leboeuf to take over from Alan Pardew after Chelsea game.
