Alan Pardew – We Struggled – We Have To Take Stock


Alan Pardew was out-coached today by Gus Poyet – and it’s becoming a habit as Alan has lost as Newcastle manager the last four times he’s played against a Gus Poyet side – so we are not looking forward to next season playing Sunderland – especially after the shambles we witnessed at St. James’  Park today and we’ve now lost our last three league games at home, not scored a goal and conceded six goals.

It was  a pathetic display especially in the first half and the 4th bottom side looked streets ahead of us in those first 45 minutes But Newcastle helped the Black Cats by some very poor defending for both first half goals.

Alan Pardew is under pressure – and as usual he has to take the brunt of the fury from the fans – and that;s how he started out at Newcastle in early December, 2010.

And of course Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear were nowhere to be seen today, after they sold out best player Yohan Cabaye last week – and didn’t bother replacing him.

This is what the Newcastle manager said after the game:

“The better team won for sure.“We didn’t look our usual selves today.” “Maybe we were too hyped up for it.“Everyone was giving the ball away.”  “We struggled.” “We created chances but we didn’t look like we’d score.”

“We have two big parts of our goal-scoring out the team.” “We need to look at ourselves and maybe go back to basics.” “It’s difficult.” “You don’t want to lose to your rivals at home and we have now done it two years running.”

“For us it is really now about moving on to the next game.” “And trying to make sure we are strong and have a good shape to ourselves.” “We have to remember where we are in the league and what got us there.” 

“It’s about taking stock.”  “We know how important it is to our it is to our fans.” “It’s not going to wipe away the memory unfortunately.” “We are professionals and we have to get ready for a tough game at Chelsea.”

“Performances is how we can recover.” “That’s all you can do.“As much as losing Cabaye and Remy was a blow, we have to respond in a better way.”

It’s all about Newcastle trying to regain their dignity now, but out next two games are at Chelsea and at home to Tottenham, and we are unlikely to get many points from those games to add to the only 4 points we’ve picked up from our last six league games after winning seven of nine.

And when you are in responsible positions at any company – like Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear are at Newcastle – you have to face the music in times of crisis – and you cannot just hide away.

Well you can – but it shows you have no courage.

We want to hear from Mike Ashley and/or Joe Kinnear about what they are doing at Newcastle, and how come we sold our best player last week and didn’t replace him.

But if the past is anything to go by, we’ll hear absolutely nothing – and the manager will again by hung out to dry.

    Every time I read a quote from Pardew I have to resist the urge to punch a hole through my screen.

    The man is so gutless and pathetic it’s beyond belief he even had the nerve to slate the fans for getting on the players backs

    Where is the apology Pardew?

    If you don’t stand up for your self and call out our main problem, Ashley, then you don’t get any respect from me.

    Resign you spineless clown.

    He is but there is a far more sinister person behind our failings…

    I said it before, will say it again. Dont like Pardew but slating him is foolish. granted not best team out there but not worst.

    Football is all about confidence, our confidence us shot cause of Pardews confidence is shot. Lost Cabaye who is laughing his head off, dont have a replacement which is hilarious.

    We lack strikers, whats worse we dont gave any next year either Cisse could be sold, Remy is not dumb he wont sign and dont blame him. De Jong young kid who knows thats one striker. Fashley shows he has no idea about football as King Kev said he want 10 mill back for Cisse a flop.

    He is the Cancer that is malignant and until he leaves it will remain like this forever.

    I have had it after this last few years lost patience… wake me up when the cun* is gone

    Maybe he will resign tomorrow?

    …I think he also need some time to reflect on everything – he must we wondering why fat Mike and fat Joke are always hiding (and why he has to take “all” the blame)

    …he has enough on his plate with selection and tactics

    Remember getting slated on here for wanting Martinez in the summer and even Poyet after that….Well thats the Pardrew football we can expect.

    Clueless!

    Unless some foreigner comes in with billions our club can expect bottom half finishes/relegation battles for years to come.

    We will get about 45 points this season.

    I agree that Ashley is the biggest problem. I think most people do.

    However I also think that when you have limited options you are even more dependent on a manager that can get the most out of his players. Pardew is a long way from being capable enough to manage this club.

    Spending per club in last year

    £112m Chelsea
    £107m Spurs
    £102m Manchester City
    £69m Manchester Utd
    £50m Liverpool
    £46m Arsenal
    £37m Cardiff
    £35m Southampton
    £30m Sunderland
    £27m Hull
    £26m Crystal Palace
    £26m Everton
    £26m Norwich
    £26m Fulham
    £21m Swansea
    £21m West Ham
    £18m Villa
    £14m West Brom
    £6m Stoke
    £2m Newcastle

    In the last 5 years the owner has made a profit of 45 million on transfers. Man city have spent close to a billion. I cannot verify that last figure. How do you compete?
    A new owner would be a great start. How do we get rid?
    STAY AWAY. 20 thousand in the ground will embarrass him and have him running for the exit. He loves blind faith supporters. He treats them as muppets. Urinates all over them year after year.
    Getting rid of Pards and JFK will change nothing

    As bad as Santon is does Pardew drop the lad for Haidara?

    No, he continues to play a poor player, same thing with Saylor while Mapou is left out.

    I know that Ashley is the biggest issue at the club but Pardew is his own worse enemy

    I thought the new lad – the Marvo kid – did quite while. Where did Pardew get him from? Looks a decent turn.

    Pity about Joe’s new signing, the big lad who came on at half time. Looks like he’s straight out of the Sports Direct bargain bucket.

    Pardew doesn’t have any guts to come out and slate Ashley and the fat joke for not replacing a key member of the team.

    He knows he won’t get a bigger club than us for the rest of his career. As long as Ashley stays, he’s just gona stay and collect his paycheck.

    Until Ashley goes we will be a wee club in the north east. Under Gus Poyet, don’t be surprise if the scums are fighting for europe spot in a couple of years while we are trying hard to avoid relegation.

    well thats it lads, 52 years with 30 odd of them a season ticet holder. I’ve just cancelled my direct debit on my 10 year deal. Feel so let down by Ashley and co and I am no longer prepared to give my hard earned money to a guy who ie hell bent on ruining my beloved club at no matter what cost. I pay top dollar and cringe when I see Johnny cum lately paying £15 at the turnstiles every home game.So after this season I will pick and choose my games and support the Ashley out campaign. god willing he will be gone before me !!

    I like Ben Arfa but until he decides to lose weight, he don’t deserve to be the squad.Definitely think he should be fined, its been half a season and the guy is still struggling with fitness.

    what has happened to most of our players now is they view newcatle exactly the same way owen viewed us and so they wont care about r3sults at all as they shown in the first half of the season thy are good players so will be picked for their international team and so just want to avoid injury then in the summer it’s bye bye tiote krul debuchy anita remy and things will get even worst.

    Newcastle are the first premier league team ever to not bring players in during one whole season

    Saylor has been poor for years mate, he’s simply not good enough especially when we have a far better player sitting on the bench.

    As for Santon, he’s been poor all season as still continues to start every week.

    I know the squad is short but Pardew can’t even use the players he does have properly

    Our problem stems from 2 things
    Ashley being hell bent on making money off the club by selling cabaye without a replacement .. No excuses for this one as they knew he was going so the replacement should gave been lined up otherwise you don’t sell unless you’re only interested in greed
    Point 2 pardews tactics .. We have a better team than Sunderland so no excuses for this result .. We’d no link to attack .. Arfa was not good in replacing cabaye ..but tactically it could have worked ..Also yanga should be there instead of Taylor.. Disgusted with the last few days … Just which there was a way to get that fst leech out of the club

    ————

    Fans hard earned money of season tickets straight into Ashley’s pocket with no intention of reinvesting into a weakened squad.

    That’s the most shocking. They knew Cabaye will go but had no plans in replacing him.

    Shocking how the fans who live there still support this regime that’s driving the club to the ground.

    Manxpie – We didn’t play any football. We didn’t compete at all so how could we play any football? I can only remember us seriously threatening their goal once – a long range effort from Tiote. We couldn’t have complained if it had been five nil.

    Good for you Morocco.

    Ashley had access to the same statistics that show our Win rate without Cabaye. But he is happy let the fans pay up to see Crap and channel funds out of the club with Carr’s expertise and our work.

    As far as our squad goes, I love the fact we don’t have the likes of Geremi, Viduka, Owen, Luque, Butt, Gutierrez, Simpson, etc.

    Our team is far superior to what it was. That is all I am thankful for to Fat Mike Ashley. It ends there. Apart from that he has pissed on our parade every time, disrupted the harmony within the group and our progress haulted by no further sanctoning of players when needed most. Some sales like Carroll for £35M is a no brainer but apart from that he has killed the soul of the club as demonstrated with the ridiculous decision to change the stadium name to favour his tatty retail stores.

    He is the cancer of this club and the pathetic appointment of the washed up loon of Kinnear to spearhead our transfers is nothing short of an embarrassment and an attempt to demoralize the fans and impose his authority on the club.

    He has kicked us in the teeth for far too long, it has to end!

    ASHLEY OUT!!!!!

    Agreed mate, does himself no favours.
    Einstein Definition of insanity – keep repeating same thing and expect different outcome.
    I don’t feel sorry for him because he must be fully complicit in all the shenannigins otherwise he would not be there.
    I would feel sorry for him if he was actually a decent manager, but alas, he is gash!
    Can’t listen to his patter anymore either as it appears he’s thinking of an educated answer to a question posed and then spouts utter pish!
    Make a good politician with his blameless, self preservation mentality tho!

    as much as pardew is left to face the shitstorm ,he still has to go, but it will change NOTHING ashley has to go and all those who say boycott is not the way , COME UP WITH BETTER THEN, AN EMPTY STADIUM WEEK IN WEEK OUT will soon sicken the fat bastard when the revenue goes down from the merchandise and everything else , it also gives a clear signal that season tickets will NOT be renewed while he is there, yes it will be painful in the short term but the players are not daft they will see why its being done , but if he stays they will be away anyway, so no pain no gain ,it was obvious today that the body language from the players tells you that they are as pissed off as we are, ashley does not give a toss about newcastle united its fans ,players, staff or our magnificent city and stadium
