Pardew – It’s A Great Day For Newcastle And Our Fans

4:17 pm, Saturday, December 7th, 2013 by Ed Harrison · 90 Comments

A smiling Alan Pardew was delighted with the fantastic win at Old Trafford today, when Newcastle put in a disciplined performance and the lads carried out the game plan excellently, and we fully deserved our first win at Old Trafford since February, 1972 when George Best,  Bobby Charlton and  Dennis Law played for the Red Devils, and Stewart Barrowclough and John Tudor played for Newcastle in that game.

And it was only a week after Hereford United had knocked us out of the FA Cup in one of the big FA Cup upsets of all time.

So there’s some memories – good and bad – right there.

Yohan Cabaye - after scoring winner today

This is what the Newcastle manager said to BT Sport after the game today:

“Forty-one years we’ve been waiting to win here as a club. It was a magnificent performance,”  “I know we probably won’t get the headlines because of poor old United and David Moyes – it’s a difficult result for them.”

“But we do deserve the headlines. The players were magnificent. I asked them to play very differently today to the way we’ve been winning, to keep the ball and control the game.”

“We did that even to a level that I thought was good for us; we really kept the ball well and made it difficult for them. It’s a great day for Newcastle and our fans.”

“I felt we had a good control of the game, they didn’t really have too many moments. Perhaps on the break was their biggest threat.”

Manchester United put Newcastle under pressure at the start of the second half, but once Newcastle went ahead after 61 minutes – our lads gave as good as they got.

And at the end of the game Alan Pardew went around his players and congratulated them on their fantastic efforts for the side – we’ve never seen Alan Pardew look so delighted.

A simply magnificent victory for Newcastle United today – and one to cherish for the ages.

    I can’t wait to get into work on Monday. One of my mates is a devoted United Fan, haven’t seen him last Monday.. but I’ve been telling him for awhile now we would beat them… and more recently that they were gonna lose to Everton.

    He has been on my case for being a Newcastle fan… despite originally supporting United before the age of 7

    I can get behind that :) just getting antsy that after this great run; spurs are still on our ass, I guess.

  • 5 Oleg G // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:25 PM

    The best thing for us I think, is all games to be a draw. S’ton, Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea.

    jack yeah but our form before that and tbh cabeye wasn’t on the ball as much as usual i’ll still say imo the reaction to the swansea game was well over the top
    but i agree today as a full team we looked very strong but our attacking side that we seen in them 4 wins wasn’t there
    as i said maybe a good tactical change for home and away games could see us well this season

  • 8 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:31 PM

    Credit to Remy, played as the loan striker for most of the game… but did a hell of a job by himself… many strikers tend to just disappear, playing by themselves up front.

    Not remy.

  • 9 OhSholaAmeobi // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:34 PM

    Gave Debuchy man of the match, another tireless performance up and down that wing. Hope he can keep on doing that for another 2-3 years at least.

    Damn it! I missed the game today – thought it was tomorrow!

    …but what a great win that was! Congratulations to everyone and what a great way to top those awards by Krul and Pardew :-)

    In what way is it rubbish. Whats hilarious is your utter believe given you have no idea who i am or wbo i was talking to. Some more…

    In his youth he got an account to trade stocks and shares and racked up a debt of over 30k. The bank manager called him in and asked him to square up.

    He feined tears and told him he would need to ring his mam as was only 17. The manager realised they had missold him the account as under 18 and he got off with the debt. However he was actually 19 and tbey never checked.

    In the early days his shop was not profitable and he stayed afloat with a sideline in stringing rackets in a back room.

    His big break came in a masterstroak to get a warehouse in the early days. A few years later its value rose dramatically and he bought a few more shops, and another warehouse in a much cheaper area.

    Figures a rough here (was drunk) but he bought a controlling stake in asics when it was at an all time low and not profitable for around a million. With his shops and distribution links he and the former owner now minority shareholder saw tbe company make 25m in the first year.

    This was later after had become a billionaire.

    He guy asked for a dividend only to be told ashely has no intention of paying either of them one- ever. The only way he would get a penny from the business was to sell it to ashley for around 1m which he had no choice but to do…

  • 21 Munster Mag // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:44 PM

    From Toonbrother ( who hasnt been seen since ! )

    hard to believe what a dumb human being pardew is.
    He had a winning team. 2-0 chelsea, 1-0 spurs, He’d been handed a winning formula.x. All he had to do was use it. Instead he looks for the only way to |f**ck it all up and turn us back into a relegation bound side.

    …Jeez, we really do have some numpties on this site!!!!

    Well done Pardew, well done the Mags, well done the fans. So so proud today. Its an honour to support NUFC today.

    Me? I was walking around the local supermarket earlier after the match pumping my fist going “yessss”!

    Sad but true!

    What channel will it be on later ??

    Howay the lads!!!!

    …was checking my phone and just saw we had won at Man Utd for the first time in 41 years :-)

    6 points between 17th and 10th.

    I’ve never known a season like this one, everyone beating each other, it’s impossible to predict any result.

    Looking good for Arsenal to in the title which I’d love to see, it would be great for football to see the clubs that have thrown around hundreds of millions being beaten by a manager that refuses to spend :D

  • 34 Oleg G // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:55 PM

    Liverpool are playing like Man C did until 5-1, 4-1.

  • 35 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:55 PM

    jesper – Should live by me mate, no snow tires needed just a canoe, oars and a snorkle :D

    Had a nightmare the last few days, been ill with shingles so medication has knocked me sideways but waking up to see that result was amazing.

  • 36 beddersmag // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:57 PM

    The reason ashley never did due diligence on the toon is because he was a billionaire and has a massice ego so simply didnt care. However he didnt realise the extent of what freddie had lumbered him with.

    Ashleys great skill is in his opinio not his business acumen but his ruthless nature, ability to adapt when made mistakes (of which he made some big ones) and turn them into positives results, and finally the fact he is happy to buy people who matter. Hundreds of thousands in cash handed over regularly for favours and cost savings.

    That previous story might have been lillywhites. He told me a similar story about both companies where he buys struggling companies cheap and makes them work but basically mercilessly rips off the helpless former owners. He left the company fearing if any of his actions were to be discovered he would be no longer able to work in finance/accountancy or locked up

  • 37 Munster Mag // Dec 7, 2013 at 4:58 PM

    Jack, totally agree re Arsenal. City sicken me with their wealth. What a day :)

  • 41 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:05 PM

    What are odd’d on Sunderland having another player sent off tonight???

    Feel sorry for Poyet, he’s a good manager working with a very poor squad that Di Canio wasted millions on

  • 42 OhSholaAmeobi // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:07 PM

    @16
    Yeah Cabaye misses the Southampton game, Anita will probably start again i’m assuming. Massive game next weekend, So’ton were excellent today and i’d put us on par with them.

  • 43 OhSholaAmeobi // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:08 PM

    Sunderland could do us a favour drawing with Spurs, which would still keep them bottom and 17 points behind us whilst also keeping Spurs behind us…

    Also missed the game, it was my kids birthday party, had to excuse myself for a minute when the result came through so I could do a victory lap round the car park!!!

    Results have mostly gone out way today as well, but can’t bring myself to hope for a mackem win so hopefully a boring 0-0

  • 46 manxpie // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:10 PM

    and while i’m on “jail for ashley” the other day i was asking a question which was discussed on the blog about ashley only buying the club to promote his shop
    and i said he could have spent alot less than 300 mill to solely do that which is true!
    and i think it is you that is stupid to believe that his advertisement here has doubled his wealth
    you are forgetting that he sells very cheap clothes in the recession and has wiped out his competition and his advertisement is quite a small point
    so again why would he buy newcastle solely to promote his shop when he could have spent at least half that on another club!??

  • 47 WWSBRD // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    JB
    Oh no more alcohol for me either mate even after that win. We were great full backs outstanding as was Tiote everyone did their jobs fantastically but Man Utd were very ordinary

  • 48 LocalZero // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    Debuchy, Collo, Williamson and Santon played brilliantly today I thought. Pardew’s game plan was spot on. Great win.

  • 49 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    jesper – South Wales Valleys mate, where men are men and sheep are nervous and a good summer consists of light drizzle :D

    Manx
    He’s a risk taker that likes to do things his way, he bought up go outdoors and similar brands which weren’t fashionable at the time. Just a plaything like most billionaire owners that as long as it’s in the premier league can only be advantageous to him.

  • 51 pottsclock // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    Southampton next week is a very big match. They showed today that despite a number of injuries they are still very well organised and hard to break down.
    It’ll be a tight affair but if we win then we can have genuine belief in finishing within the top6.

  • 52 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:16 PM

    WWSBRD

    Man UTD are a poor side without Fergie at the helm but credit to everyone as we still had to go and out and put in the performance to get the win :D

    We have a great squad now with only a few weaknesses and can play some excellent football which makes some of our results this season so frustrating.

  • 53 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:16 PM

    tads…congratulations on the little ones. Hope they had a wonderful day – how couldn’t it be with this win :-D

  • 54 LocalZero // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:16 PM

    Manxpie
    So true. Nobody in their right mind would buy a football club to make money and Ashley certainly hasn’t made money from it. Not yet anyway. Imagine how much interest he should be getting from all the money he has tied up in interest free loans to the toon. People having a go at him for ‘milking the club’ are well wide of the mark. The facts speak for themselves.

  • 55 manxpie // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    ohshola yeah i see that but my argument was against the people saying he only bought us was to promote his own company and not want us to do well which imo is stupid but jail decided that i was stupid for pointing that out so i thought i’d have my reply :)

  • 56 jasper // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:20 PM

    BBC etc going on about Anita “handball”. E.g. When he had his arm behind his body, ball hit chest, post 2′ away and then arm. “Clear penalty”. Bollox.
    Whereas against Swans a shot from 10 yards away hits an arm held away from the body – no penalty – and no-one except McManaman noticed that just before the shove on Gouffy Ashley Williams (in the area) deflected the cross off his hands both of which were right over his head…….
    Ah well I luxuriated in the sight of the Man U fans misery. When I think of all the comments from them about Toon fans delusions that we might be entitled to win something. Well who’s deluded now?

  • 57 Munster Mag // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:22 PM

    IS MOTD the only place I can see the Mags tonite ? Help, need to know….

  • 58 Big Pappa Cissé // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:23 PM

    We look so much better with another midfielder to keep possession away from home .

    Also Sissoko & Debuchy have the right hand side on lockdown . Everything good came down that flank .

    For me when playing away from home our team should be 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 .

    ——————————-Krul——————————-

    —Debuchy———Willo———M’biwa——–Santon—

    ————–Tiote———-Cabaye———Anita————

    —Sissoko———————————————Gouff—

    ——————————-Remy—————————–

    I still think Colo is suspect at the as he played Hernandez on by a mile and could have cost us the game.

    Also our bench is looking very strong these days :

    09 Cissé
    10 Ben Arfa
    13 Yanga-Mbiwa
    18 Gutiérrez
    21 Elliot
    23 Sh Ameobi
    25 Obertan

    Drop Obertan for Marveaux and bring in a few more players and we are looking very good .

    HWTL :) .

    Southampton will be a really tough game as they were very unlucky not to win against City today, reports say they were the better side

  • 63 manxpie // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:29 PM

    localzero yeah they seem to forget he spent near 30 mill on players wen he came in on collo guti enrique n mmmmmmmmmmm xisco
    and celebrated with the fans
    not a person that came across as solely spending to keep us in the league!
    but i do say he needs to get back on board in that fashion

    We can beat Southampton no doubt about that, but we will have to be at our best as they are a very good side and don’t concede many, but if we take the confidence and belief from today into the game we have every chance of taking the three points

  • 71 pottsclock // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:39 PM

    Blackpool are a mess. 4 players sent off in a week. Shipping easy goals. I would say Tom Ince will be available in January. Blackpool will have nothing to play for and he will not improve at Blackpool.
    Not sure he’s right for us though….

  • 72 WWSBRD // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:41 PM

    I take nothing away from Southampton but I don’t disagree their real test has come recently and they have been found a little wanting

  • 73 Mister Tuff // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:45 PM

    What Sir John Hall was told:-
    “The meeting with the Malaysians went well but they wanted 6 weeks to do due diligence. The offer from the other party at Freshfields waived that right and was a better deal. I was told that the man behind the deal was Mike Ashley and I sat with his representatives over 3 days thrashing out a deal. I was keen to know why they wanted the club and they were quite honest. They wanted to market their sports goods in the Far East and would use the Club to help do this.”

    What’s not hard to understand about that!

  • 74 toonbrother // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:46 PM

    Great win today. 3 points is all that matters.I begrudgingly give Pardumb credit for starting Anita in midfield. We completely bossed that area of the pitch which took pressure off our back four. Credit must be given where its due.

  • 75 WWSBRD // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:49 PM

    JB
    I hope we show more than against Swansea mate Southampton have a lot of injuries and we don’t so let’s show up and hammer them been too long since we have shipped goal after goal against a team

  • 76 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    WWSBRD

    they don’t concede many and have the third best defensive record in the league so it will be a tough task even if they have lots of injuries. For the squad they have they are doing very well

  • 77 manxpie // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

    tuff wats hard to understand about that is why he spent 300 mill on advertising his company in the far east?
    so how many shops has he got in the far east then??
    and your taking a quote from someone who said in that quote took to long to look at due diligence to someone who didn’t take that due diligence into account!! mmmmm
    so imo sir john halls account can be taken with a massive pinch of salt !
    and again i ask why would he spend 300 mil to SOLELY advertise his shop when he could by a club for at least half that!!?

  • 78 nufc7lad // Dec 7, 2013 at 5:55 PM

    Team vs Southampton:

    Sorry, sometimes I just can’t help myself :)
    3 wins and clean sheets against 3 teams that ended in the top 5 last year.
    This’ll be a good year for us ;)

  • 80 manxpie // Dec 7, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    how many tours of the very lucrative far east have we had under ashley??
    how many far east players have we bought to sell thousands of shirts!??
    yeah sir hall was right wasn’t he?

  • 81 JackButler // Dec 7, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    manxpie

    you can’t take Sir John Hall’s account with a pinch of salt as he was the man that dealt with Ashleys representatives and was the man told the reasons for Ashley wanting to buy the club.

    Yes he could have bought a club for a lot less than what he paid for us but would that club have the marketability of NUFC as there are only a few clubs in this league that have our profile overseas?

    And would he have bought us if he had gone through the due diligence process and known about the financial state of the club?

    SOTON game is not going to be an easy game much like the Swans game!

    …hope we have learned from that experience. Great to hear the winning formula was put away today. I am really amazed by the result and the display (from what I have been told) ;-)

  • 85 Big Pappa Cissé // Dec 7, 2013 at 6:05 PM

    Was I the only person that seen Nani’s tackle on Anita ? . Half way up the leg studs into the shin stamp and should have been a red IMO .

    No one else on here mentioned it .

    jack that wasn’t my point as i said before wen ashley bought the club he spent 30 mill on players then “bought” the fans favourite manager back celebrated with the fans in his newcastle shirt
    is that a person who solely baught the club to keep us midtable and piss of the fans and advertise his shop
    and are we the reason his company has doubled in wealth??
    no no and no
    his company has doubled in wealth because of his compitition crumbeling and cheap clothing in a recession
    so me being called stupid for saying so and fans saying that was the only reason for him being here is ridiculous which is proved by the facts is why i brought it up!

    manx I’ve got no idea how many shops Tubbs has got in the Far East -certainly has them in Malaysia and Hong Kong and is expanding all the time. I would think his progress has been halted somewhat by the world recession. You seem to dispute he is going to expand worldwide?

    TBH mate I couldn’t care less why he bought us as I’m only concerned with what he does with us now he does own and how we perform on the pitch, but I do think his intentions have changed as a result of the abuse he took for the Keegan saga
