    We have a decent squad but we only have imo two quality players who consistently produce quality pervormances and that is Debuchy and Tiote.Our midfield as a unit is far more a hard working one than a free running, creative, fast attacking unit like Arsenal or City’s and thats why we rarely look exciting or create many chances.HBA is the only real game changer we have and he isn’t consistent.I said a few weeks ago that our squad had never been as bad as some suggested at the start of the season but neither was it as good as some were saying when we were 5th.

    Pardew has been backed in from 50/1 to 11/4 overnight to be next manager to be sacked. God let this happen.

    Repost from that “Devalue the cup” article.

    @bills-son: I think that comment is the first of yours that I completely agree with. There is no winning situation here. In fact, you could actually make an argument that it would be more (financially) advantageous for a club like Newcastle to profit more from winning two cup ties, getting knocked out and focusing on the league.

    I’ll always remember the 1998 final where Arsenal took us apart 2-0. My dad took us all to Byker for the occasion and it was bloody brilliant. The streets were lined with carnival rides and games, facepainting etc. and every single bar was heaving. My dad ended up sitting me on a table just in front of the bar in Jackson’s so I could watch the match relatively free from obstruction. Despite losing 2-0 (and the following year) it was a bloody brilliant time. The entire City had been done up for the honour of competing in the final. Why can’t we get some of that back? We’ve shown we can go toe to toe with the big boys so why the hell do we fall at the first hurdle? Before anybody points fingers at Pardew and blames tactics; this has been an issue long before Pardew and it will continue to be an issue. The problem seems to be endemic to the club. Maybe those 40+ years is too much pressure for some of our players.

    there’s one thing that SBR & KK gave Newcastle that AP couldn’t in a million years give Newcastle

    and that’s HUNGER

    back in the day the awaken giants where hungry for success fair enough we didn’t win any silverware but we were in the Champions league, cup finals, the players were so determined and hungry.

    but now though it’s gone until we find a proper chairmen & Manager who are hungry for success.

    I really hope Ashley opens the wallet this window. 3 decent signings would make a world of difference to our squad. And not stupid money either.

    Sorry to keep having a pop at you but those days we were the big spenders. Keegan and Robson had money to burn and also the premier leagues greatest ever striker.

    Pardew has none of that. It’s not pardews fault that Ashley won’t give him any money. 20 mlilliom this transfer window and it would transform us.

    it won’t make a difference if MA bought in very good players, AP will somehow mess it up, he probably couldn’t win a game with Barcelona or Madrid if he was a Manager there.

    it’s not signings it’s a decent manager that’s needed.

    Why bring in more creative playmakers and goal scorers whose careers he’ll just ruin. Cisse and ben Arfa look shadows of their former selves now. How about getting them back on form first.

    Excellent summing up whats gone wrong not just with Newcastle United and the FA Cup but the FA cup in General.

    A complete overhaul of Festive Fixtures and the FA Cup third round is needed

    true mate, but Pardew wanted Bent at Newcastle and no doubt Carr was laughing at the thought of it.

    we are lucky to have one of the top scouts to recognised talent because if we didn’t no doubt Pardew would of made us into another Stoke.

    Pardew will not be sacked. He isn’t the best manager and is far to negative with his style of play which is not entertaining but the main thing is that Ashle isn’t pumping in 100’s of millions so will settle for steady improvement in results, which pardew is delivering in a way.

    Football is about 2 different things.

    Players/managers – winning is the only thing

    fans – to be entertained and to win

    If the manager can win ugly every week he will be delighted, the owner (most of the time, unless Abramovich) will be delighted and so will fans (but they will also want to see some fluid, attacking, dominating displays). If a team win ugly fans might not like it but they will at least see the benefit.

    When a team plays good football and loses it’s not great but at least you get some entertainment, when a side plays ugly and loses you get nothing enjoyable out of the game.

    Ashley has slowly built a decent squad, that team yesterday was full of quality, it’s the negative mindset that hampers us.

    As Pardew said “we contained them first half”….it’s Cardiff not Madrid, why aren’t we giving them things to worry about instead of worrying about them.

    top of the class for missing the point.

    We have a very good squad, one of our best ever seen at SJP. just because we haven’t spent fortunes but made very shrewd buys instead doesn’t mean we haven’t got a good squad.

    We’ve got half the current french national team ffs and people like marveaux and Jonas not even in the squad!!
    Our squad would be a gift to most intelligent managers.

    As long as you finish outside of the top 6 it doesn’t matter where you finish as long as you don’t get relegated!

    ..coaches in the EPL need to get some f*****g perspective!

    Any team outside of the top 6 should priorities the FA Cup and to some extend the Carling Cup (not both). We are going to end up somewhere between 8-12 with not Cup to show for (wow look at us)!

    when he said ”we contained them”, ie a second string cardiff team near the bottom of the league with a new manager, at home and then also blamed the crowd , it told you absolutely everything you needed to know about pardew

    As for Ashley wanting us out of the cup it’s stupid….difference in saying league is priority and saying we have no interest in cups.

    This cup round and the next are played on weekend so no prem fixtures are on….therefore still a weeks rest between games so no incentive to not go through this round.

    For me we put out a strong team…apparently krul, colo and cabaye injured with debuchy suspended. So only resting remy and willo, we surely can afford to rest 2 players. I’d rather go with our strongest side but that team should be beating Cardiff.

    The problem lies with how cautious we are, with being that cautious we need key men like cabaye, remy, ben arfa and previously cisse to do something magical…we only had 2 of them on the pitch and they couldn’t produce any magic. We never get enough forward in attack, look at us compared to other clubs

    this game showed pardew up again .. like I said before the game willo should have played instead of Taylor .. remember Everton Willi made the difference .. also don’t change the spine too much .. 3rdly its a cup game so ATTACK … sooner pardew is out and a decent manager like pochetinno or laudrup the better

    I don’t like using interviews against a manager, it’s not that impotant usually as they often say things to protect the players, cover their backs, etc etc….they all try to be clever and gain some psychological advantage, which doesn’t matter.

    But I heard his worst excuse played on the BBC radio newcastle interview during the after game phone in. He actually said the ref put the whistle to his mouth, just before the first goal, but didn’t blow it, we switched off for a second and gave them half a yard to shoot and score.

    does highlight we need a good commanding cb who loves to header ..but not a plodder .. also a striker and an ACM and winger .. then even pardew can get us top 8 .. a decent manager would have us top 6+ though

    The crowd was a bit low yesterday, typical of the FA Cup these days for some reason. For me clubs need to react and just drop ticket prices even more, most will only face one or two rounds of the cup anyway so might as well charge a low price, not like it’s a huge money spinner anyway, get kids in for free with adults for a fiver….might get more interested in the game doing this too….give everyone a chance to go, especially for large families the league is just too pricey.

    Also I think our previous team selections for cups might have but people off, why turn up to watch a second string….but we did lay a strong team yesterday, but we didn’t know they would until kick off.

    I agree we have a good squad. But I’d say maybe the 7th -8th best in the league. Where are we again???

    Newcastle training ground news.

    ‘ young boy – Alan is the opposition penalty area that white box around the penalty spot?’

    ‘ Alan – no boy it’s the long line through the big centre circle!’

    ‘ young boy – I thought so since i always see our strikers there!’

    TS,

    I agree, we don’t get enough forwads in attack but that imo is down to the players Pardew has to wotk with.

    Cabaye prefers to play deep, Tiote isn’t an attacking midfielder and Gouffran and Sissoko are working their butts off wide. That’s why we our chances are few and our wins are narrow.

    I’m not saying Pardew can’t do better but I don’t believe he is shackling a natural squad of freeflowing attacking potential.

    Someone mentioned we scored 3 goals against Palace as it it was an achievement…

    Deary me. A deflection, own goal and a penalty… way to get 3 goals, Alan.

    And wow, 5 goals against Stoke… after 2 red cards.

    Great we got the wins, that isn’t the issue, it is the constant scraping and nicking of points which we do which a good group of players which infuriorates me. Plus, the excuses, oh the excuses.

    Pardew is so fortunate it is unbelievable.

    A lower league manager sacked from his last job to be handed a Premier League job on a plate by his gambling pal.

    This gamble will never pay off.

    difficult to say what we will do, i don’t think the club wanted to be in europe last year, we played a week side in most group games but managed to progress….they knew they’d need to buy 7/8 players to really compete then and they didn’t want to do that one summer.

    But now, since we got those 5 last jan, we probably need just 3/4 to have a good depth for europe and that could be achieved in this window and the summer with not spending too much at once…so you never know.

    Jesper

    Spot on. As a fan i dont get excited by top ten or top 12, i get excited by playing in europe and cup runs. Football is all about finances for most these days and no longer about fans and wanting to win cups.

    Is this just typical of english footy? or other countries too

    I’m finding it disturbing how quickly we’re reverting to last seasons style of play, if Pardew can’t improve the way this team plays without having every single player fit then he’s no use to us.

    It is not just the cautious approach build up. It’s the end product.
    We do not possess/raely play the defence splitting ball, or the one two’s around the edge of the box as Arsenal and Man City do time and time again.
    Also we Do not have a Rooney or Saurez player who burst a lung to get into the box onto the end of a pull back/cross.

    Take yesterday time and time again Hiadarra got down the wing pulled the ball across the box and know one was in the box

    bills…it is down to the style of play Pardew employs…not the players (they were quite capable before they came here)

    …we play football where we double up on the wings and football where our central midfield neither have offensive obligations nor defensive; we just moan about our wide men not either tracking back or get into the box and score goals!

    You try to run that wing like that for 90 mins. Why do you think modern football have move on?
