    It is truly a fantastic thing to see Shola “Strolla” Ameobi having a real purple patch
    The lad has been completely rejuvenated by playing regularly, it’s like watching him the season we finished 5th and he was up front with Ba, but this time he has that extra edge, that little bit more confidence, and I’m f**king loving it

    To see lads like him and Williamson putting in performances like that is just amazing, it’s certainly reignited a bit if passion in the squad and in the stands
    Give Iron Mike a contract extension the boy has certainly earned it, shola too

    Was a hard fought win against a decent team who have only lost once on the road this season
    Plus they had a 12th man in the form of an overweight teletubby passing himself off as a referee, shoulda been down to 10 and missed a blatant pen at the death

    Oleg from a couple of posts back
    Don’t think HBA came on mate was just cisse
    And tbf it wasn’t a sub intended to disrespect cisse but to allow Sissoko to soak up the deserved applause

    An Ashley Williams red card would be nice tomorrow; another blow for their beleaguered side. Unleash HBA on them and see what he brings, been making all the right noises whilst he has been on the sidelines – it’s time to step-up, young man!

    It’s great seeing Shola grow with confidence and finally adapt his game to the bulky body he has built – in his pomp – long may it continue. It’d be wonderful seeing him get a world cup goal.. 😀

    Was last year the outlier season for Pardew? Was the excuse that injuries and player form the reason for last season’s debacle, rather than tactical naivete?

    My feeling is Pardew is a perfectionist and stubborn with his tactics. Which sounds like criticism, but is actually also his strength.

    When you look at Newcastle’s bench and see players like Yanga, Ben Arfa Anita and (to a lesser extent) Cisse; then maybe Ashley and Co. were also correct in not bringing in a transfers as well.

    The voice of the critic is always the loudest.

    After the anger Ashley faced this summer, I think he deserves some credit because his approach seems to have been vindicated.

    Would you Give Shola a new Contract? It runs out in the summer.

    I wouldn’t, Because the reason he is playing half decently is because of WC.

    they might not be quality players but what they are is very passionate and will always put their best efforts into the team they are shola willo goufran.

    these 3 players this season are playing such a big part in getting Newcastle up the table

    willo might be slow and does make mistakes but when ever their is a ball that needs heading he is their also he will always be around when a threat is happening.

    goufran might not have the tricks and dribbling that we get from HBA but what he does do is always get back to cover for santon and will not hog the ball.

    then their is ameobi, he might not be like remy is at scoring goals but when ever their is a ball going into the box the first player we see getting it is ameobi more than anyone so what happens the opposition have to send their players over to prevent him getting them which allows remy and who ever else is making a threat so much more space for their attempts.

    the probably are the most important players in the teams structure.

    @Himanshu: I probably would. He’s an extra body and he does have a calming effect on the front line. Less than average player but he’s shown what he’s capable of. It’s up to the manager to get him playing like that consistently.

    TADS,
    00% agree on ‘strolla’. I’ve always liked the bloke, and argued with those that gave him abuse. I thought he was average in the first half, but second half he was outstanding.

    I am a big critic of pardew, but thought we did well today. They scored through Sissoko switching off for 10 seconds. He made up for it not long after, but their goal was down to him.

    I still think we sat too deep, and Mbiwa should have played., but the team Pards set up controlled the game other than maybe two 5-10 minute spells at the start of each half. For me, it as another big step forward in Pards learning curve.

    If Shola is going to get a contract it needs to be short duration – a year at a time. Might help if he’s on a bonus for assists rather than goals

    If I was forced to pick out a negative from todays game it would be the fact that Long ran Colo and Willo ragged. Won virtually every header and caused constant problems.

    As much as I love Shola, he should’t be getting a new contract. He has done well, but should be improved upon and replaced in Jan.

    I thought it was a workmanlike rather than a stunning perfornance but I do miss the ability of the team to vary their pace – step up a gear for ten or fifteen minutes then slow the game down – show even better control of the tempo of the game in fact.
    TBH we probably did just deserve the third goal – either a pen or edge of box free kick would have done it for me – but WBA are no slouches away from home so we did what needed to be done

    0% but harsh mate 😉
    Agree on long, he ran Colo ragged today, although I thought Colo came into the game a bit more it seemed a big gamble that didn’t do much other than make the back four look less disciplined than they have, Colo does like going walkies

    The thing with Shola is lack of consistency. He has always had the ability to boss defences but then doesn’t even show up. So many of the players are on decent if not their real top form – that we can do even better than this recent run. Goofy continues to improve and I just love his work rate and positional play. Hard for Benny to break into the side.

    We do ned another Shola style player upgrade though – I agree

    Yo yo,
    I agree, it was work man like, but I am fine with that, my biggest criticism of Pardew is that we protect leads too much by retreating. I don’t think we did that at all today, which for me is a step in the right direction.

    We were still very deep for most of the game, but not in a way that worried me, we still controlled possession and always looked the better team.

    Yeh I was worried we’d sit back too much but I agree with your analysis – a few faster moving counters the last fifteen minutes when they were pressing would have helped mind

    Yo yo,
    You say lack of consistency, but when has he had a run of games to show consistency. Chicken and egg for me. He could have been far better, but like Harper, he loved the club and is willing t put that ahead of personal goals.

    For me colo doesn’t work with Willo or Yanga but he works well with Taylor
    If Willo is in the side the Yanga absolutely has to be

    Great, great battling win but it has been a mistake to break up the pairing of mbiwa and willo.

    Baggies deliberately targetted colo with long diagonal balls due to his poor heading and lack of pace on the turn.

    Aside from that we were streets ahead of them as a football side.

    You guys criticising shola and willo should remember that form goes a lot further than reputation as a footballer. They are playing very well that’s why they are in the team, on merit.

    Contracts and things should be decided at the seasons end.

    I’d give Shola, if he keeps his form up, another year – who’d want to see Shola anywhere but here? Granted, there are people that’d like just that, but not me, let’s keep him in our B&W bosom! 😆

    The thing is we could bring someone in who can do Shola’s job but actually score goals on a consistent basis .

    For all Shola’s heart and him being a Geordie his goals record is shocking .

    Yo yo,
    Maybe, but once Remy went off it was going to be a dogged ending.

    West Brom have only lost 1 other away game this season. This is without question a cracking result, and on top of that, a much more dominant performance then we have seen for a while.

    Diggedy,
    Who is criticising Shola?? I have said I wouldn’t give him another contract as for me the priority in Jan is his upgrade?? I’d prefer to see the lad play out his final years, rather than waste it on the bench, as he has done for us since he came through. If he got a new contract, it would be as no more than a sub.

    Someone on here the other day actually worked his stats so they represented full games
    It worked out at 1 in 3
    Plus he’s not in a role to score goals, his role is to win the ball, hold it up and trigger counter attacks, which he is doing extremely well
    It probably benefits us that he ‘a not looking for goal constantly as he’s much less reluctant to drop deep and do the dirty work, we saw with Ba and Cisse in a pair they both wanted to be the scorer and neither really wanted to muck in in the midfield battle, although Ba did it a lot more than Cisse

    Williamson is a model pro, striving to be the best he can be, knowing his strength and weaknesses – was like Terry in his heyday in those last 10-15 mins. He’s the crucial tough-nut defensive pillar at the moment, predictable, dependable, that like Shola up front, complements those around him.

    WestBrom were poor today. Im sure the baggies fans expect more from Long,Sessegnon,Amalfitano,Brunt,Anichbe.

    After we scored in he 1st half we frustrated them with posession football. Our central midfield of cabaye and tiote is amazing. Williamson handled long balls in and around the box. And Ameobi did well holding up the ball.

    I like our quick style of play when we need a goal. Gouffran,cabaye look for quick passes when we need to score.

    In the four games we have won we have always had the first goal. Expect HBA n Cisse to play bogger roles when we need a goal in the last 25 mins.
