Lee Ryder’s Tweets – Newcastle Ban Local Journalists


Lee Ryder has tweeted the local Journalists for the Evening Chronicle, Newcastle Journal and Sunday Sun have been prevented from interviewing Alan Pardew after the game today, and it seems it’s a response to the Chronicle’s minute by minute coverage of the protest march last Saturday before the Liverpool game – the protest was against Mike Ashley – the Newcastle owner.

Mike Ashley – bans local journalists

Here are the tweets that broke the news about 30 minutes ago from Lee Ryder, on his Twitter account, and Lee is the Chief Sports correspondent at the Evening Chronicle:

#nufc believe coverage of Mike Ashley protest march was too harsh.

The ban was agreed by Joe Kinnear, Alan Pardew, Lee Charnley, John Irving and the club Press office. 

The ban wasn’t revealed by the Chron before the game because it would have wrecked the team’s build-up .

Newcastle United refuse to take questions from Chronicle following derby defeat

I did ask AP to explain his own personal feeling and clarify the ban from his point of view,  but he wasn’t able to give an answer

This seems a bit of a spiteful move from the Newcastle club, and one they will probably live to regret in the future, as it will only turn fans against the people at the top of the club, who have made this decision.

And it’s not like we had a great result today either at Sunderland, losing for the second derby game running against the bottom of the table side.

Newcastle United are supposed to bring fans together in the community – or so we thought.

Comment welcome.

    We need Marveaux back in this team ASAP . We have decent possession but do nothing with it and Marv can pick a pass .

    The fact he can’t even make the bench is laughable .

    I like marvoux but think the lad doesn’t offer enough over 90 mins to earn a starting spot. It is strange he isn’t on the bench.

    Isn’t he injured though, sure i read that.

    A media blackout for the scum game? Perhaps in preparation for just such an eventuality as a virtually unthinkable loss?

    Would the ban have been lifted for Pards to gloat after we gave them a thrashing today? No doubt.

    I see the March is getting misinformation passed on again.

    Here are my pictures from the said march which I took part in, showing fans of many ages and a decent turnout for a fist meeting.

    I’ll post the 3 images which I put up before.

    tads…the list goes on (not sure why you are only mentioning Sissoko, Benny and Cissé?), Dummett didn’t have a great game, both Remy and Gouf went disappearing, Cabs was a shadow of himself with silly mistakes.

    Our subs had no impact what so ever!

    Benny might no be the same player this season (don’t know why), but his shot at goal turned out be be a pass to Debuchy by chance, but who cares? It was a goal!

    Alot of people like to pick on Benny and blame him for what’s wrong – it is just sad if you ask me! Sad!

    …speaking about taking ones glasses off!

    Team for Chelsea

    ——————–Tiote—————Anita——————

    ——–Marveaux———-Cabaye————HBA——–

    ——————————-Remy—————————

    I would give Ben Arfa another chance and not up front by himself which was Pardews brilliant idea (NOT) . Gouffran comes up with the odd goal and runs his socks off but Marv would create more .

    Sissoko needs to be benched until we find out his best position as he looks like a headless chicken at times . We need to get rid of Cisse ASAP as he would struggle in the Championship at the Minute and Ba would be an ideal replacement.

    We’re not broke! We still have the 7th highest revenue in the PL with virtually zero external debt!

    Fans need to accept it, unless a top 6 team implodes or we can have several years of progress, then 7th is the absolute best we can aim for right now.

    If only Marveaux was the answer. Last few weeks they thought it was Remy. The training ground appointments are the key here. We have virtually no idea going forward. We have actually destroyed Jonas, HBA & Cisse, and it may not be long before Remy heaves a sigh of relief going back to his club. We need some positive changes, if need be Mike needs to take some pro advice on personnel changes.

    You are right – Benny’s lack of vision is why he isn’t world class. Highly skilled yes, somewhat predictable though and can’t see how the game is flowing or how to play a one two

    transfer swansea n southhampton do play better football but they certainly dont play under the same expectation and i really dont see wat a change of manager would be able to achieve under this owner
    the fans certainly do have an effect on the team and since we dropped from champions league i feel we have had this feeling we are better than we think
    and i thought relegation would level out that expectation and it seemed to work and we finished 5th but again the expectation was lifted
    i seriously wouldn’t mind us finishing 10th for a couple of seasons then building
    but you have to admit some of the opinions on here are the total extreme and due to past expectation?

    I just don’t get it. Marveuax had the most assists for us last year in a poor team yet can’t even get on the bench in a team that creates virtually nothing in games and relies on the odd wonder strike to get the three points.

    Today we created nothing
    Against Liverpool we created nothing

    It is so obvious but Pardum cannot see it because he is a hopeless bum .

    I’m not optimistic because the relationship between the fans and club appears to be seriously damaged right now. And it’s not just the owner who should take the blame for that, the unrealistic expectations of some fans and the disgusting death threats against Ashley when he sacked Keegan have helped to contribute to the situation we’re in now.

    Protesting because things are a little below average is frankly stupid. The best we could hope for now would be to fight for 7th place and to build for the future.

    this is only one match that he can say the defence was not good enough before today we had the 3 Rd worst in the division, only Sunderland and palace had worse
    Sunderland had conceded 20 goals before us,

    as it stands right now Sunderland have concede 21 and are a poor team we have now conceded 16

    today’s match facts

    possession sun 48% nufc 52%
    passes sun 345 =69% complete
    nufc 375 = 72%

    corners Sun 5 , 5 reached there players
    corners nufc 3 , 2 reached our players

    crosses sun 19 , 3 reached there players
    crosses nufc 14 , 4 reached our players

    only one shot for us inside the box

    pardew should do the right thing and walk

    also I think he watched a different match , his interview did not reflect the match at all

    yeh, i give you that…just forgot it, sorry.

    But my main point being all our second half chances, excet debuchy were outside the box.

    I wish I could find the link, but lost it, which shows where teams shoot from.

    Last year we had something like the 2nd least shots in the 6 yards area and the 3rd most from outside the box (this is all % of shots, not numbers). In my eyes that shows we don’t create as many clear chances as we should.

    Because they were the three most disappointing
    Dummet was at fault for the goal yes but didn’t lack effort

    Sissoko got strolled past today, he played with no passion or enthusiasm and didn’t get involved at all, same with cisse, in fact shola put in twice as much effort as him

    Ben arfa not the same as last season? No he was better at the start if the season but his lack of consistency has kicked in and frankly the lad looks out of shape, one scuffed shot doesn’t suddenly mean he played a blinder

    Remy had a poor game but once again the effort was there sadly his touch wasn’t
    As for goofy what game were you watching? He swapped wings, dropped deep and cleared the ball from our area time after time after time, once again the effort was there, that’s why I’m singling those 3 out, the effort is not there, they weren’t trying and looked like they’d rather be elsewhere

    So yeah you know glasses and that

    I know, you’re right that they were mostly from outside the box, but then Sunderland packed the box when we attacked.

    I still think we were the better team, since when do you see great football played at a Derby?

    What has happend to our once great club? If it’s a case that the media is banned if they say anything negative against the club then it is truly a sad day.
    RE the result – I have been a fan for over 50 years and went to many home & away games. Although I have lived in France for over six years I do try to get to a game when in the UK and of course watch as much as I can when NUFC are on the box.
    Given Sunderland were bottom of the league and had been beaten 4.0 by Swansea , I thought we had more than enough to win the game.
    How wrong I was . We didn’t deserve anything out of the game in my opinion .
    Once again the team let us down.
    I don’t really blame the manager -he can only put out what he has available.
    This team are paid more than most of us can dream of and yet when it comes down to what for many, including me, is a crucial game for bragging rights alone, they can not deliver against the bottom team.
    They just don’t realise or care how important this game was.
    Sorry for the rant but I feel thoroughly p….ed off.

    I am with you on that, I don’t mind being top ten in the process of rebuilding, thats fine with me. I also am happy just seeing some entertaining football where the lads give their all….play to their best, or as near as possible.

    I don’t think pardew is a terrible manager, not at all, he is average but I think we need to get a manager who is average (ideally better) but in a more technical/modern mold suited to the players we have.

    Or we need to get the players pardew wants like the style of andy carroll etc who he always said he wanted.

    It’s no good buying good players but getting the wrong style of manage for them. I do believe pardew wants to play a technical game but I think he doesn’t seem to have all the knowledge to put the pieces together.

    Instead of sacking him we could try this year with getting an assistant to replace carver. Sir Alex always changed his assistant after a few years to make sure he was keeping up with latest techniques….I think this would really help pardew.

    Where else will he get the chance to learn other new drills/style…….sometimes just need a fresh pair of eyes and ears around.

    I would agree with you on the derby, its often scrappy stuff…..but its not just the derb, I think thats how we lay often. Those stats i mentioned were for all of last season…so shows we struggle getting many chances in the box.

    We have technical players for tight play like cabaye, anita, ben arfa, marvoux…..and we have wide players who can cross like debuchy, hba can play there, gouff can too…yet we dont put balls into the box enough and we dont slot players through often either.

    I think this can be improved pretty quickly if we start to approach it orrectly, just cant see it changing under pardew, thats my worry.

    I hope i am wrong and he gets us firing

    Toondarnsarf, I have no part with the insults and death threats but I really dont see where you picture that ‘building for the future’ has its origins in this setup. We tried espousing all that last year, but its not inherent in the way Mr Ashley does things in his numbingly inept football foray. I don’t see the very real prospect of a derby defeat to a patently awful team for a 3rd game running as appealing, or promising. Where do you actually see the promise in our current regime? Are we not a team who can easily use this defeat as a ladder to another downward spiral to the relegation places? If so, how many seasons do we need to endure that before we get sick of buying tickets, shirts, memberships………
