    Did they have to wait until after they retired until they “came out” as open ginggas? Much like Mr hitzelsperger has done recently (although with the much less important issue of his sexuality)?

    repost:

    isnt it unfair to HBA to have the manager tell him, “ok, we need a goal”, and its the 80th minute? seems to me thats a reason he tends to look for an opportunity, and not look to distribute as much….

    Mind, Jonas singing still sounds much better than both Hoddle / Waddle in Diamond Lights, and far superior to Kevin Keegan in Falling in Love. Don’t even get me started on Paul Gascoigne’s Fog On The Tyne.

    Considering what Moyes has done to a more healthy transfer funding pool and a way much bigger squad, you guys should be satisfied with Pardew actually.

    as far as fantasy picks go, i’d take either of these two: both19/20, both play regularly for standard liege. we’ve been linked to both in the past. I think Michy is the one touted to be the next ‘superstar’ (he’s built like Drogba) but both are highly rated

    Jonas had to leave because he is a terrible singer? Damn…MA is getting strict…Barton was forced out for speaking the truth about the regime…Jonas…because he can’t hold a note.

    Of course…I say that all in jest. For all he lost his legs, Jonas bled black and white, and gave everything he possibly could. I for one liked him as a player because of that passion, was he frustrating? Yes, but he also showed us and other players what it was to fight for a cause, and to love the club you play for rather than the money.

    So you set Pardew a target and if he fails to hit it then you sack him. You can hardly sack a man when you tell him top 10 minimum and we’re currently in 8th!

    i think you’re wrong about jonas being shipped out because of his comments last year

    someone had mentioned that there was a clause activated that after a certain amount of appearances he’d been entitled to a pre-determined contract. i’d believe that with this regime over any other reason

    I find that very strange, if he had not got injuries in the first game he would still he in the team now

    if there was something in his contract about the amount of games , I don’t think he would have started the first game

    Backwards? Don’t be ridiculous. CH was sacked because the owner felt he wasn’t ready for the PL. Then he had to drop down a division to Birmingham? and then he is back in the PL with a yo-yo club like Norwich. Kind of backs up the decision doesn’t it???

    You can’t use last season to prove that Pardew is useless unless I can use the previous season to prove that he’s amazing.

    TDS…TS posted a great article yesterday I think you should read!

    …like I have said before when it comes to the fundamental of football it is just s case of clash of cultures in here!

    I setup football much just like the Dutch do and actually at times think what I see here in England is anti-football!

    if the owner honestly felt CH wasn’t ready for the prem, why not replace him in the summer. both you and catchy’s arguments don’t really hold up.

    to me at least it’s apparent AP got the job based on connections, and he’d been sounded out for some time. he sure as hell didn’t get here on merit.

    Jonas is simply leaving to play more first team football. The reason he wasn’t getting first team football with us is because he is not good enough. He was widely criticised on this blog last year for his poor performances – mostly loss of pace and inability to beat the opponent and poor crossing. Pardew was also widely slagged off here for playing him, many called him a Pardew “favourite”.
    He remained, however, a very hard working player.

    Can’t people simply accept that there is no conspiracy in this case?

    Catchy, we played great football against sunderland which we unlucky to loose, we played great football against Villa, Man United, Chelsea etc. Under Hughton, we played nowhere near as good football as pardew plays us, but what we did have under hughton, was a set of players that bled black and white (barton, nolan, carroll, jonas, simpson) and that is why we smashed sunderland 5-1. Now we have a set of quality players who sadly just don’t put as much effort in for derbies. After 2 derby losses, they should now know what it really means to geordies

    You can slag off the style of English football compared to Dutch football as much as you like. But coming on a NUFC blog and bitching about the style of our football (in the English PL) is a bit like me coming to Holland and always complaining about the number of cyclists…

    again, comparing apples to oranges

    look at the squad CH had at his disposal. some will argue over the likes of barton, nolan, and carroll but all had clear limitations. simpson over debs? jonas over hba? shola over remy? santon over r taylor? come on….

    now look at our current squad.

    Because he gave him a chance first and didn’t like what he saw.

    So what if he got a job through connections. You don’t think the guy at Saints did? Football is about connections! And people want to work with people that they trust.

    When is suits people, out squad has gone backwards because Ashley has failed in his transfer policy…and when it suits people Pardew has failed because we’re only in 8th with a superior squad.

    I get that football is about opinions but how can people be quite so varied in their opinions?!
