Pardew To Sky Sports After Game – Better Team Won – Video

3:43 pm, Saturday, February 1st, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 300 Comments

Here is the interview that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew gave after the game today – which is one of the most humiliating defeats by Sunderland in our entire history, and the first time since 1923 that Newcastle have lost three successive league games to Sunderland.

This was simply a stunning loss by Newcastle today.

    Doesn’t take the blame once again.

  • 2 Rotonda heights // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:45 PM


    So we were a one man team then? One player goes and it’s game over? We were at home v sunderland at the foot of the table. What was the excuse for last year as I’m pretty sure cabaye was around then.

    Only johnson alone would get in our team, they had a geriatric central defence with no pace and we bang 194 long balls at them!!

    Sorry but Pardew is as thick as. This is the guy wh0o played ben arfa for a full 90 mins after 4 months off on a plastic pitch in sub-zero conditions!! Intelligent he aint.

    How many times are we always here moaning about Pardew.

  • 3 archaeomag // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    He got that right!

  • 4 Spoof // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:47 PM


    we tried to play football in the first half but failed, the players aren’t good enough so we went longball to try and change things, what is he supposed to do continue as we did in the first without trying something different, look at the players themselves, how so many feel that Anita, Marveaux, Sissoko and Ben Arfa are good players is a mystery, they are poor, how many poor performances do they have to make before people realise this, you dislike Pardew greatly, thats fine but please look at the players and most importantly the owner, as he is the problem, this anti Pardew, Kinnear or whoever campaign is past its sell by date now, we have to move on as one and get rid of Ashley, lets not waste our time on other issues, as for Pardew you may be right, you may be wrong but that is immaterial as Ashley is all that matters at this point, concentrate on him.

    fat ash bought the club to make a profit…he is now acid stripping…dont go to sports direct …..dont put money in his pocket …support the club …not fat ash…..ed have you got an agenda

  • 6 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:47 PM

    Not that you care though Pardew eh, you are a cockney twat and get your pay check at the end of the week so no skin of your nose .

    How many shocking records has he got to break here ? . Poyet is miles ahead as a coach.

  • 7 Korean Magpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    Who hired Pardew? The fat b@stard should be the one blamed

  • 8 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    The mans voice is like dragging nails down a chalk board.

  • 9 sparky55 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    toonking…I’d like to think you could prove to yourself to be better than than the last manager and realise the potential of the squad under you.

    I’d get great satisfaction from that irrespective of having no budget for new players because our squad is a good squad.

    but hey…if you don’t want it I’ll not put you forward :-)

  • 10 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    Cabaye wasn’t in the best form of his life last time we played them was he?,he was recently,and if your going to ignore the impact of him leaving and the impact he had on the squad then i’m not going to talk to you.
    We really need to all get on the same page here.Wtf is the point in asking to sack Pardew?,who do you think will be our next manager?.Open your f@cking eyes.

    catchy in norway // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:47 PM


    what you fail to grasp is
    football full stop

    you have no idea how the game is ment to be played, so arguing with you is futile

    you think when we win 10 on the trot its pardew, but out of those 10 games, 9 would be wonder goal one nil games, and you would scream he has got it right, when the fact would be we rode our luck

    he could then go on and lose 10, and you would still poit to the 10 he won to say we can do it

    i watched sunderland today, a team that did not look like a team 3 month ago, they were full of fight , invention, running,,
    what is that stat, only 1 team bottom at xmas has stayed up, well sunderland are no 2 , he will keep the up, and the sad fact is , i would not swap many players, shola, williamson, and that is it

    you think we are getting better under him, i arue this with many, even the ones who hate pardew as much as me, al he has done, is stoped the long balls and swapped it for passing it around in MF,, we dont and never have know how to break teams down under pardew,

    it has taken GP only 3 month to stamp his game on sunderland
    OGS at cardiff, he will get them playing and scoring, he is bringing good players in, and he will use there abilities in the right way

    LDJ had to feed off scraps of long balls today, and think of this, pardew has been there over 3 years and in his words he is building his 3rd team,,

    some 5y plan

    he has not got a clue

    he is being forced out and has not got the balls to walk

  • 13 Klatoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    Almost at that point where it does not hurt anymore…

  • 14 Korean Magpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:50 PM

    Pardew will be here as long as Ashley is here…However, he will be sacked sooner or later with a better owner

  • 15 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:50 PM

    Common Pardew walk!

    …the pressure needs to put on fat Ashley and fat Joke – you don’t need to cover for them anymore ;)

  • 16 Ciaran // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:50 PM


    How about considering that the talented players we have were responding in kind to the chronic lack of ambition shown by Ashley when he sold our best player and did not replace him.

    Add to that fact that we had absolutely no cutting edge up front and that Sunderland are a team on a rapid incline, I think you can’t solely blame Pardew for this one.

  • 17 manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    worjordi how about chelsea twice man u twice just for starters!
    how about you look at the squad available and the shit he has to deal with from the top and then deal with that squad who don’t know if there coming or going and then get us to a 5th and currently 8th position!??
    that in its self is a miracle!
    and then tell me the options he had today after a shocking window!?
    tell me the attacking options that “TACTICALLY” would have give us the upper hand!?

  • 18 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    Lets all hear it for Alan Pardew ladies an gentlemen. First NUFC manager to lose 3 derbys in a row for almost 100 years .

    My hero.

  • 19 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    Can we please get away from this ‘Sack Pardew’ bulls**t!!!

    Sacking him will achieve nothing as the man that gave him his eight year contract will be the same man that will hire his replacement.

    The root cause of all that is wrong at this club lays above Pardew

  • 22 Korean Magpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:53 PM

    I’m not saying that we should support Parfew but we need to get rid of Ashley NOW

  • 23 Mike's Iron Curtain // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:53 PM

    We’re nigh on safe. There’s no better time to boycott and frequently protest, as it’ll do minimal damage to the club and is the only method available to fans that can dent MAs reputation and make the masses feelings known. It’s the only way we’ve ever elicited a reaction from him in the past, with demos and organised, focused upheaval – he publicly put the club on the market. We’re a better prospect for buyers now, if we can get him to do it again, who knows. Better than continuing in the same vein, rendering the whole club and our participation in the league pointless exercise.

    No use been diffident disciples of a zombie club. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

    The, they’ve paid for their tickets already so aren’t going to stop going point is very weak. If you paid a annual membership to strip joint and after a few weeks the girls were replaced by Mike Ashley doing his infamous sexy routine and the drinks replaced with Victory Gin, would you still continue to go because you’ve paid your fee and have a pass? Or would you be repulsed and thus repelled until normal service has resumed?

  • 24 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:53 PM

    …it has a much bigger effect!

  • 25 SlicRic // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    There has to be someone in the world who wants to buy a one city club with 52k a week fans every home game
    Change at the top is needed before we meltdown completely

  • 26 pottsclock // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    I thought Anita had a rotten game. It was almost as if he lost total confidence once he had given the penalty away. That’s not a good sign.
    And Santon was particularly disappointing. Putting his defending aside, his crossing and kicking from dead balls was poor.
    Overall, without Cabaye we look completely lost at dead balls.

  • 27 leeb1982 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:54 PM

  • 29 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    The better team won because they haven’t got him coaching them! The man is a disaster with his hoof the ball outdated football, that’s the double done by a relegation squad. The streaker threw his season ticket at the pleb should have been a punch!

  • 30 toon62 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    We ave to be schtwong, ave a better game plan, two massive players missing, blah blah bloody blah. The correct analysis should be the better Manager won.

    the effect will ultimately be the same even if he walks as he will still be replaced with another lap dog, we can change managers a hundred times under Ashley and the outcome will always be the same.

    the mistakes will stay the same as long as the making those mistakes remains at the club

  • 34 catchy in norway // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:56 PM

    the problem is above him

    the lack of football is him]

    take the subs today, is drummet a better option than marv

    why did shola stay on

    cos shola is the magic slayer,, only reason

    pardew clutching at straws

    sack him

  • 35 geordiegav1987 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:56 PM

    It pains me after 26 years of supporting newcastle utd to say enough is enough.
    I can not keep watching my team play pointless longballs, play players out of position and waste there potential and creative influence, sell our best players and not get in a replacement when they knew all of january he would be going, and continue to use shameobi who as people have allready said wouldnt even make a championship team.
    Mike ashley is a leach sucking the blood from our great club and alan pardew makes decisions and uses tactics that would get a championship manager player fired.
    I think this boycott talk is on the right track and the only way to get ashley out before we become the next leeds.
    I have lived in somerset fir 16 years now

    I’ve had enough of this, anyone who fails to see that we will never succeed with Ashley as the owner and still bay for Pardew’s blood as being the answer are fooling no one apart from themselves, all this wasted anger on the manager when the owner is destroying the team, it really is incredible, open your eyes and put all your efforts into helping the side, concentrate on Ashley, its the only way, some are like a broken record with their Pardew drivel.

  • 38 niafron // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:57 PM

    Let’s be realistic lads, Ashley will not sell, cause there’s no good offer.

    And i don’t see Pard leave until summer. Could be wrong, we will have the answer in the next 48 hours.

  • 43 VanToonMan // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:58 PM

    I have always been supportive of Pardew and blame Ashley and Kinnear for our problems HOWEVER – can someone please explain to me WHY Steven Taylor is played at CB over MYM. MYM and Willo were solid – Taylor only came in when Debuchy was suspended and MYM could move to RB – then MYM gets dropped – for no reason. Taylor is awful – we concede 3+ goals so often when he plays.

    Pardew CANNOT start Steven Taylor or Shola Ameobi in this team ever. For that reason – he is to blame!!!

  • 44 GAZ09 // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:59 PM


    Answer to what?

  • 45 manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    ffs catchy you really are a tosspot!!
    so tell me pardews options are to supplying the forwards!!
    we’ve got 1 winger and he prefers being in the middle and we seen how that went!!!
    i’ve been saying for ages how much we need out n out wingers!!!

    we’ve had to play 1 forward as a winger and a cm as a winger!!

    you love your stats so please list pardews options in attack!??

    and btw you cant count ober or marv because they have both proved out wide they have been shocking without doubt!!?

  • 46 NUFCarter // Feb 1, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    Last season many didn’t want Sunderland to get relegated so we could beat them the following season……we lost away and 0-3 again at home. So now what? do we what them too survive just to get humilated again next season or are we all for them just to F*** off! I want the to do utter sh1t but i also want to batter them home and away next season. Unfortunately with Ashley and co that will never happen

  • 47 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM


    We need to force Ashley into selling because as long as we simply accept him doing whatever he likes nothing will change

  • 48 Shadow_Shearer // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    I hate u mike ashley!! So does the rest of our toon army. The only way u could get our respect back selling the our club.

  • 49 Robinio // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    I presume all the Ashley apologists have disappeared under their stones for good , no more excuses . Everyone knows the score it just needs a concerted campaign of utter contempt and hatred and, non stop abuse towards the fat bastard and his cohorts .if you need to continue to go that is what you must do , boycotting is better . This is the first derby game I have missed for 50 years and I wont set foot in the ground until that thieving parasite is removed . It can be done , it just needs some organisation

  • 50 JP...from The Rock // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    This was proof that Santon can’t hack it as a LW / LM and neither as a LB. He was shocking and his set pieces were just as bad. He should be dropped in place of either Dummett, Haidara, M’biwa or even Raylor when he comes back.

    Why doesn’t HBA take our set-pieces he is by far our most technically gifted and can do much better than Santon ffs.

    Gutted that we lost so badly, Pardew did say it was not all about the performance today but more important was the result, well Alan we got neither!!!

    What Shite and another waste of 90 minutes of my life!!

  • 51 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    JB…yes he will be replaced, but I refuse to let fear of what we might get rule my destiny mate!

    …you need to be prepared to change a chance or else what does it all matter?

    I don’t want to listen to more excuses from Pardew! JFK and Ashley can explain themselves :)

  • 53 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:01 PM


    Come on jack the man is in over is head. Three defeats in a row to the scum,two at home by the same scoreline.

    We didn’t just get beat,we were played off the park.

    Yes we all know the biggest root of the problem and have been saying so for years, but today`s performance was a disgrace.
    What manager would make the same substitution ie taking Santon off in the second half just about every game.Its a total waste of a substitute.

  • 54 John Tudor // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:02 PM

    we need to do our damnedest to remove the cancer from our club

  • 55 Rotonda heights // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:02 PM


    Jeez it doesn’t take much to confuse you does it. You’re truly exhibiting muppetry at it’s finest there my friend.

    OK in baby steps for the hard of hearing or intellectually challenged. Which part of ”only Johnson would get in our team, we were playing at home, they had 2 very old and slow defenders with no pace , we hit 194 long balls, still lost 3-0 to them with cabaye” don’t you get exactly?

    If I was a clown I’d be happy and laughing, but hearing you spout such ignorance makes me realise that as long as there are people like you who think Pardew is blameless, we really are on a road to nowhere.


  • 56 niafron // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:03 PM

    Sacking Pardew isn’t the answer, do you guys really want to see Kinnear run the club instead, cuz we all know that’s what the Fat One would do!

  • 59 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:05 PM

    We tortured Norwich in our last game,unlucky not to score.The only person to blame is Jabba for selling our best and in-form player with no replacement it has devastated our squad.

  • 64 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:06 PM


    What man would want to come here to replace Pardew?

    Would any other manager be willing to simply tow the party line while having his best players sold from under him with no replacement in sight while being left to deal with the media and fans like Pardew does?

    I have zero respect for Pardew as he’s a patsy and a fool but what are the alternatives?

    Mick Hartford? Joe Kinnear?

    After what has happened of late if people don’t rise up against Ashley with a concerted effort to get shot of him then we simply deserve everything we get

  • 65 GAZ09 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:06 PM


    I know the answer to that, Pardew wont be fired, why would they fire him he does exactly what is expected of him

  • 66 catchy in norway // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:07 PM


    your the tosspot,

    regardless if you have wingers or not,

    if you dont have any dont play any, play to the strengths of your team

    he could easy go 352

    he has 3 very good CB

    2 full backs that like to get forward

    he has plenty of good players to cover DMC/AMC

    and plenty of forwrds to mix it up

    our squad is mor suited to that , than 433 with a forwrd on the left wing who creats nothing and a box to box MF on the right

    that is your managers choice, no one forces him to do it

    today was long ball, becauuse he had no clue

  • 67 JP...from The Rock // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:07 PM

    We can’t vent our anger during matches but maybe before and after matches. If we do demonstrations ‘during’ matches it will do more damage to our team and we will probably get relegated again and Ashley would stay on and we will be playing the likes of Nottingham Forrest and the like WITH ASHLEY!!!


  • 68 Black and White with an army lol // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:08 PM


    i would of went for my 4-3-1-2 with

    debuchy, MYM, Willo,Haidara
    Anita, Tiote, Gosling
    HBA, Sammy/Luuk

    with high pressing and play through the middle,WHY? because most of our goals came from the centre this is our major threat from goals if i had controlled Newcastle using this style as i do for my young lads the results would of been reversed

  • 69 Mike's Iron Curtain // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:08 PM

    Boycotting and protesting is the basis. The intricacies and further plans can be evolved, we can think on our feet. Until the community has a consensus to get off their arses and do something, nothing will happen. You have to begin to question the self-proclaimed best fans in the world. Do most just now see NUFC as a casual hobby, something to do on a weekend? Maybe that’s MAs ultimate victory, when people stop caring enough to do anything other than submit, turn up and accept the status quo, because of a lack of imagination and pride.

  • 72 Ben3arfa // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    Jonno Woodward seeing as you removed my post, I thought I’d try on here: Dear Newcastle United,

    I have been a Newcastle Supporter all my life. I feel I speak for a lot of Newcastle fans when I ask for some clarity on a few points.

    1. What does Joe Kinnear offer to the club? I mean what is his actual role and how has it benefited us and seen us progress this season?

    2. After Joe Kinnear stated categorically that no player would be leaving this club in January, why was Cabaye sold?

    3. If Cabaye was sold due to an agreement in place to sell him in January, why did Kinnear point blank lie to the fans?

    4. If we knew Cabaye was going this month, why wait until less than a week before the end of the transfer window limiting our options to replace him?

    5. Who is in charge of signing players? We have received £60 million from the premier league TV rights, and just under £20 Million from the Cabaye sale, and yet have only seen two loan signings this year.

    6. How do the club plan to progress if we continue with the selling of our best players policy?

    7. Why are we the only club in the premier league to not sign a permanent transfer this year? It seems ludicrous to suggest after a rocky season last year, that the basis of the squad was strong enough to sustain the good start of the season we’ve had this year, when you remove the most influential player?

    As a fan, I would appreciate a response to this, as I’m sure a lot of geordies would. Seeing as we’re not busy signing anybody I’m sure you will be free to answer this today surely?


  • 73 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    Strange how Liverpool fans forced a change of ownership and look at where they are now!!!

  • 74 Junior90 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    From another point of view, maybe Pardew got sick of this job and is trying to get himself fired with the tactics as well as the player selections.

    Never mind about his CV cos he probably does not need to find another job with the compensation as surely it’s enough to last him and his family for the rest of their lives.

  • 75 niafron // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    Anyway, not sure firing pard right now is a good idea.

    For we got the whole football policy to change, and we can’t do that now.

    A good idea would be to cast managers right now, but we will sign no one before summer.

    The problem is: to make a good choice regarding the next manager, we need someone to take clever decisions.

    And we fall again in the ashley situation.

  • 76 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    Sacking that cockney tosser would be a step in the right direction after almost 4 years of shit!

    No we didn`t we had a lot of the ball and as usual a huge amount of shots from distance.

    Norwich could have won at the death.

    By the way that in-form player wasn`t playing at Norwich so that is a lame excuse.

    I don’t think you read this properly

    Cabaye wasn’t in the best form of his life last time we played them was he?,he was recently,and if your going to ignore the impact of him leaving and the impact he had on the squad then i’m not going to talk to you.
    We really need to all get on the same page here.Wtf is the point in asking to sack Pardew?,who do you think will be our next manager?.Open your f@cking eyes.

    I know what you are,you used to love Pardew,people turned against him so you did,then he started to get a bit of credit back and now your stuck because you don’t want to look stupid again,when Di Canio was doing well at Sunderland you wanted him,now Poyet is doing well you want him.Your a “Flavour Of The Month M’er F’er” like i said

  • 93 Sazzer // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:15 PM

    Come on Sunderland wasn’t the better team just because they got the better result. The created less than us. We gave away penalty for the first goal, they got lucky on the second goal and third goal the because Ben-arfa gamble and lost ball.

    Still doesn’t take way of course the fact that we don’t have anybody able to deliver a decent cross or hit a shoot.

    Thing is, the regime (pards kinnear ashley) are all in it together, they all know theres no signings to be made, they all know that mid table mediocrity is the agenda for the foreseeable, they all know its a cash cow and billboard.

    If Pardew gets the sack who is going to take over? No decent manager in their right mind would touch this club. Not whilst Ashley is still the owner. And who could blame them?
    This is how it will be until Ashley sells up. I’m not even angry I’m sad, infact devastated, that someone would come in and destroy this great club the way Ashley has. If he has even an ounce of decency in his body he will put this club up for sale before he damages it beyond repair.

    …I do know Ole Gunnar had no problem working for Tan at Cardiff and on the continent coaches work under similar conditions – well not completely they support their coach (but you get the drift)

  • 118 lesh // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:23 PM

    Manx @ 1 and the rest of you Pardew haters…. when will you grow up and acknowledge that Pardew is not the cause of the malaise at Newcastle United.

    Pardew is but an employee hired by and expected to work in extremely difficult conditions at times.

    Just look back a few days, he, Kinnear and Ashley had known that it was highly likely that Cabaye would be away in January and despite Pardew’s wishes, Kinnear (who we were told had the ear of Ashley) didn’t persuade Ashely of the urgency of getting a replacement in or at the least, lined up. If indeed Kinnear even tried to ;persuad Ashely and I don’t think he did – being party to whatever agenda Ashley has.

    Kinnear’s shipping or trying to ship players out on loan or sold left right and centre and that cannot help Pardew and team morale.

    Pardew cannot be held responsible for yet another humiliation and anybody can tell bey his demeanour in the course of that interview that he’s been gutted by the whole Cabaye fiasco. Cabaye’s sale and the lack of a real effort to replace him, players going out, another loanee coming will have had a substantial impact on the players and they, like Pardew and the fans must be wondering just what the hell is going on.

    Make no mistake, Ashley’s no business fool and he wouldn’t have allowed the Cabaye, Grenier, Cabella fiascos go without a head rolling. Kinnear’s still with us and from that I can only infer that the recent farce is acceptable to Ashely.

    From that, we surely must infer that there’s something going on behind the scenes. Let’s just hope that he’s managing the finances to make the club attractive to a potential buyer.

    Let’s hope that any buyer that’s considering taking the club on in honourable and shares the fans’ passion and ambition for Newcastle United. And that if he has a such a buyer lined up let’s hope that a sale’s completed soon.

    But in the meantime Manx, Catchey and the other Pardew haters, get off his back and support the players – that’s probably the best direction for your pent up energy, yes?

  • 135 lochinvar // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    Inept. High and long balls in swirling wind = loose possession. We don’t even anticipate where the ball will land from their defensive headers and hand possession back to the opposition turning our attacks into nothing so loosing any sense of momentum or pressure. These are basics that coaches teach school kids. Pardew needs to go – use part of the Cabaye money to do that and get someone in who can recupe that cost by finishing higher up the table and producing a team and performances that are expected.

    I’ve had enough of pardew now, time for a change.

    Manx I appreciate what you say about options but are you telling me that sunderland with a midfield of bridcutt, ki and colback should be able to pass as easily and move better than tiote, anita, sissoko and marv? I’m just not accepting that.

    How many times did we go long for shola to have nobody within 30 yards of him, what does he do even if he wins it, why aren’t we getting players forward.

    Why aren’t we trying marv? look really good when he came on.

    Yes it’s not easy losing cabaye, remy and gouffran all in a week but you need to adapt, no good just trying to do the same with players who can’t do it.

    And yes santon had a bad game, but the last 6/7 in a row he has brought him off for either dummet or haidara, why on earth does he keep starting him if he’s coming off every week.

    We could have kept Cabaye,we could have said”You can go at the end of the season but not now”he won’t have gone on strike again this close to world cup.We could have signed a couple of players to give the squad a lift,we didn’t.That is what led to the difference in performances from Norwich to today for me,everybody got the message”We don’t give a f@ck about this team”.Pardew put near enough the same team out as Norwich,most of them were terrible today.

  • 140 clinath@ed // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:30 PM

    Ashley obviously understands business, but he knows nowt about football.

Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you.

  • 142 Black and White with an army lol // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:31 PM


    again Pardew picks the team, tactics and style not the dogs upstairs, but i do get your point though.

    but on the other hand how do we know that there isn’t a manager out there who would crave to become a Newcastle manager despite the lack of funds and a DOF controlling transfers.

    we got to realize it’s not all about the money when it comes to managers, if there was a questionnaire or a site that asks the top managers in the world would they manage Newcastle under the current policy and squad they have most would probably say yes

    you dont have to win every game

    some games you attack and go for the win, and score lots of goals,
    other games against the so called big teams you have to play with more caution
    all we do is play with caution

    but you have no clue

    i would use our squad

    why the hell should marv come in from being frozen out and fight for pardew

    we have more than 11 players, and another sad fact is obertan has had more playing time than marv,,

    i rest my case

  • 149 Tsunki // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:35 PM

    Well I did warn you all. Didn’t I? Since the end if last season I said that Pardew and Co would be judged on their performance by the Christmas period and what have we got? On the plus side, a reasonable mid table position. The minus side? Hmmm. Let’s see….

    Three (count them) reasonably comfortable losses to one of the poorest Pl mackem sides ever, no cups. No consistency,no strength in the squad. A cash-in mentality to our player assets. A manager who is not at the required level to even consolidate a defensive display when his first team selection is compromised. No motivating power or pride in the shirt instilled within the institution of NUFC. A Botched and cobbled management hierarchy based on budgets and advertising revenue, product placement. The evacuation of all the club stands for and alienation of its own lifeblood, the fans.

    Three are a lot of extreme views for and against the Ashley tenure, the middle is usually nearest the truth, which is where I believe I am. This is a ghost of a club, a disappointment on every level. The conclusion for me is that all this is Ashleys’ spiteful revenge for being widely rebuked for not having a clue about what a football club means. The whole SD – propelled hierarchy must be replaced or we will remain the bumbling laughing stock of English football.

  • 150 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:35 PM

    I appreciate pardew doesn’t have the options he should, the idiots above him are not interested in backing the team beyond mid table.

    but look at sunderland today, they couldn’t string 2 passes together at the start of the season, poyet comes in and they start playing decent football, much better than you’d expect from that 11.

    A good manager gets everything out of his players, pardew doesn’t get everything out of them.

    I appreciate it’s a futile argument as until we see what a better manager would do then it’s impossible to say 100% what these players are capable of.

    But why can’t we do better than pardew? he’s a bog standard manager who has had 1 decent season in his whole career and that wasn’t even playing good football, it was defensive football with moments of briliance

  • 151 valle // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:35 PM

    I think Pardew said all the right things actually, and I dont think we could get a better manager. You guys might be able to name loads of better managers, but the fact of the matter is, we wont get any of them. That said, Ashley isnt making it easy for Pardew and the amount of shit he gets served comes is unbelievable.

  • 152 Mike's Iron Curtain // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:36 PM

    We’d get Hartford or someone just as pathetic.

    Why can’t he see what works? it’s not rocket science.

    We are all united with our voice regarding Ashley, now lets be united, NEWCASTLE UNITED with our feet. His 5 year plan is well, planning out perfectly, for him. And to think with some progress on the pitch – some off us thought that maybe just maybe there was a plan in place
    The fat f er has been laughing at us the whole time.
    His plan the whole time was to exploit our great club to promote his business.
    The question us guys must try to fathom out is this: Has Pardew known all along what was going on and what way the cards were going to be dealt to him, and then face us with his smug face and lie to us time and time again.
    Or is he just thankful to be in such a great club, but has not the balls to say enough is enough with this regime and walk out, because he will never get a job like it again.
    I know what i think, the smug fk has known all along, all along.
    He is always lapping it up when things are going well, he is never admitting fault when things are going wrong, his demeanour towards opposing managers strikes me as a man of complete disrespect for others, even those who are superior to him, and why? because he knows what is going on and he feels un-touchable.
    We must vote with our feet

  • 159 theartfuldodger // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:38 PM

    I read an interesting question on here.

    Name one PL manager whos been backed less than Pardew this year…

  • 160 pethmag // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:39 PM

    Newcastle will all ways be my club and I will forever support them . But until this regime and manager are out no more for me . Iv had my fill of the fat man bleeding the club . As for that performance the day utter drivel hang your heads in shame lads

  • 161 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:39 PM


    we could sack pardew and appoint another manager, not big name but a lad like pochettino, poyet, that type with something to prove but having shown the style that is modern and suits out players.

    I know what you mean that ash needs to go, but he could hire another manager who would take us on without spending money.

  • 162 catchy in norway // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:40 PM


    you could have wrote the scrip before the game

    i did

    long ball to shola

    that was what he has been working on since tuesday


    and like you say

    santon,, why not go with hidarra or dummet

    another thing i called

    so many long shots 28 ,

  • 163 yo-yo // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    I think the whole team is in shock that we got nobody in to replace the on pitch leader and pivot for our team. So is Pardew.
    If that isn’t enough to give our form a shake then the absence of our two best forwards in Goofy and Remy left AP with an even bigger problem – a major absence of ball playing options and a leaderless team with very limited creativity. The scum just couldn’t believe their luck.

    Blaming Pardew (as the usual suspects bang on about endlessly and tediously) is way off the mark – team psychology is a complicated matter even if the blog sledgehammers can’t appreciate it.

    We need another 18-20 pts to make our season respectable. Can’t quite see it just now as we are getting into a bad groove again. That is what lack of ambition does for you – sucks confidence, determination and guts and leaves a bunch of half hearted lads to grind out results in a tough league.

  • 164 Laurent Robert 32 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    ToonKing. Don’t start what? Highlighting the patterns which the team play and explaining them? We generally play containing football with emphasis not in the final third and use our skillful players to try and grab a victory via long range. (See shots inside vs outside box).

    Now, with out two best individual goalscoring options not in the side, what else do we have to formulate a plan of scoring wonder goals? We have Hatem For a wonder goal, that is it.

    That is a really sad way of playing football, as Poyet gladly demonstrated with a lot poorer players. He showed Pardew up for what he is, a negative manager with very limited tactical skills. Hang on… AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN.

    Last year against Sunderland and Liverpool was the worst game I’ve ever been to.

    Today, it was up there with them. All managed by Alan Pardew. The King of spin.

    Again, Ashley is the real problem though, Pardew manifests the evil on the pitch through his own incompetance.

    We organised our whole game round lumping the ball to the worst player on the pitch.

    No wonder goals = we struggle to score, because of little regular teamplay IN THE FINAL THIRD.

    And we expect to win?


  • 165 archaeomag // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    “Pardew out” is not that simple – with J F’K waiting in the bar, I would be careful what you wish for. . .

  • 166 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:41 PM


    not one has, but there are plenty with worse squads that him who have them playing nice stuff consistently…poyet for one.


    100% agree, it’s a joke….we won’t get anyone better even though we could. they even had john anderson on bbc newcastle today saying we are stuck with ashley and wont kick on til he goes….even they have had enough

  • 167 clinath@ed // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    Surely Pardew is a symptom not the cause of our problems. Yes, he is not the best manager out there, but would a better one come to our club with mr A in charge?

  • 168 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:42 PM


    Maybe that just goes to show how bad Norwich are and we still didn`t beat them with a team of International players.

    As for Cabs everyone knew he would be sold this window.It was even said he had an agreement that they would let him go.

    So why didn`t Pardew demand a replacement.

    No he just does as he`s told because he knows he will never get another job like the one he`s in now.

  • 169 manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    sage but wat about the players?
    anita was shocking full stop
    who’s his back up?
    btw we started well infact the commentators even said that pardew has got them up for this!
    then we have a cm on the wing and very inexperienced winger on the other! thats it!?
    we conceded 2 very very bad goals in terms of very bad defending
    1 (quite unlucky tackle) and 1 very badly defended by santon

    i’m sorry i just wish the hatred would be directed at the right person! and the fact we all know who that is, is even more shocking tbh

    sage tell me seriously wat other team could pardew have put out??

  • 170 Black and White with an army lol // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:42 PM


    JFK can’t takeover as manager, he has a pacemaker and having a pacemaker he can’t result in major pressure and stress and this comes with being a manager

  • 171 davetoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    Pardew says we may have to change our style without cabaye
    So 194 long balls every match now then

    It’s pathetic. poyet doesn’t have a cabaye but he doesn’t make them hoof it.

  • 174 NUFCarter // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    We have Chelsea away next game. United have Fulham so a push for 7th is out the window. 8th or 9th is where we’ll finish….Yay i’ll be remembering that for years to come

  • 175 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:43 PM


    I don’t ever 100% agree as like ihave said to you before we have had moments or halfs where we do play good, positive stuff.

    I think that makes it worse, as he has seen the answer in the back of the book and he’s still getting the questions wrong.

    But as many say, we could get a much better manager but under ashley we have only had duds (and houghton, true gent) so can’t see the next one being better….still want him gone

  • 176 BRABOT // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:43 PM

  • 177 beefman13 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    MA drops another bomb in the last transfer window, i really do think he gets a kick out of these maddening decisions he makes, it causes us so much grief and heartache, a true money mad nutcase, the whole of the toon is as flat as a fart, he did not even turn up neither knacker Kin-near, im so disillusioned at this moment in time, yea we are 10 or so clear of tenth, but we could have pushed on with some quality accuasitions, we loose Cabaye and we get nothing, another big payday coming for MA soon, and another next season, its all just waring a wee bit to thin.

  • 178 Tsunki // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:44 PM

    I can imagine that Ashley did not want KK because he was a manager who demanded financial commitment to improve. Ashley gig Pardew and on the basis that he did not make waves in player deals, and simply kept us in the PL with the smallest budget manageable, he could have a very long contract. This is his it seems if will continue to pan out until Ashley has milked all that he can from the project of that revenue is starting to suffer due to adverse publicity.

  • 179 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:44 PM

    Who the f@ck would want to come here?,no signings,no ambition.We sell our best players,and who is this magical manager that is supposed to come in and manage a massive club like this without spending money?

  • 180 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:44 PM


    the same reason that Saylor starts ahead of Mapou, the manager is a tool

  • 181 Rake // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:44 PM

    Ashely’s running of the club has affected the team drastically. Shola should of been moved on, he’d probably not make it in league one. We don’t have winger’s who are good enough. This is why are team has no clue near the box. Pardew knows he wont get a better job. He won’t walk. Ashley is bending him over a table with the players we have bought and sold.

    That performance was dire… f

  • 182 Laurent Robert 32 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    Artfuldodger, I agree that it is ultimately Ashley’s fault.

    However, make a list of teams who can play better football with a poorer team of players, due to simple and effective coaching.

    Sunderland have given you a wink for the first team to put down on that long list.

    and remember they have to be fit and on form!

    otherwise shut the ffff[k up!!

  • 188 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:47 PM


    I do appreciate what you say, and yes Ashley is the main problem but it’s easier to change your manager than it is your owner.

    The players should take stick too…but we sit deep as a team, that must be tactical (and if it isn’t then pardew can’t get them to follow his plans which is bad also)….we never have movement under him except the odd 45 mins here and there….look at sunderland today, poor players but poyet has them passing and moving and looking better.

    he could have known cabaye might have gone, had an agreement so why not try and introduce marv, even just 10 mins off the bench the last few weeks.

    it’s not a question of who else would i play, it’s more of getting these to play well in a system that works.

  • 189 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:48 PM


    he doesn’t need to be a superstar, just average like pardew but with a passing style, not his poor containing style

    tons of managers on the continent have much harder time with chairman than pardew does with ashley

  • 190 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:49 PM

    Pardew cannot demand a player anymore,that is why JFK was appointed.i’m sorry but the club comes 1st.Any normal club would have told him he couldn’t go or at least lined someone up,we did none.If Jabba goes you get a “better” manager,if he Pardew goes you get”same sh1t,different day”

  • 191 Transfer Sage // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:49 PM

    According to the BBC website, we had 28 shots today! Add that to the 21 against Norwich…I wonder how many clubs have had 50 or more shots without scoring?!

    Without Remy, Cabaye and Goofy, we didn’t have much goal threat on the pitch it seems.

    Didn’t get to watch the match. Not sure I want to…

  • 198 Rotonda heights // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:52 PM

    when will people get it’s not about the money, money.
    Well ok some of it is but look at Poyet making one of the worst teams in the league play football.

    It’s in your DNA whoever you’e managing, be it Pellegrini, Wenger, Martinez who will always play expansive, attacking football or a pardew , allardyce, Pulis type who should be shot for crimes against football.

    ashley needs a good long look at what he is doing, for sure

    but i think he provided good players , that can do more than AP has the doing,

    it does not take much to get the team playing to support the forwards

    i know with no badges , i could do it, i know i could do it,

    i have always asked, do we play good football because of pardew, or because we have good players,

    i have a;ways thought its more down to the quality of players we have, because when we are poor, it is more down to sitting back and holding them back

  • 201 Black and White with an army lol // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:53 PM


    iv’e been saying this for 3 seasons now many on here would of seen me post this tactic and style.

    we keep playing 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1 & 4-4-2 but our team is not suited for this.

    we have a team suited for my 4-3-1-2 many managers around the world would of set Newcastle up to this style but this just proves how inept Pardew is

  • 202 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:53 PM


    No you don`t, plenty of better managers than Pardew.
    Like Sage said @159.
    Or do i have to repeat what he has said for you to understand it.

  • 203 Lu-toon // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:55 PM

    Transfer Sage -

    No offence meant, but i think it is pointless to even think or talk about replacing Pardew with another type of manager who could do a better job with the players we have than what Pardew is doing.
    Pardew knows exactly what is going on with the regime. Things are not going to change , trust me.
    Its time for us to force a chance, we must vote with our feet

  • 204 sparky55 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:56 PM

    Just my opinion but if Ashley started looking for a new manager and laid down the law saying you’ll get no new players for 18 months and i’ll probably sell a couple toboot…I would still bet my house you would still get a lot of managers sticking their hand up for the job because we do have a good squad and you’ll be pitting your wits in the premiership with crowds in excess of 50,000 at home every other week.

    Strangely enough lads that’d be enough for most young coaches and would have been enough for Potchy, Poyet and martinez…and I’ve have taken any of those three in the the last three years.

    OGS has gone to Cardiff irrespective of the owner because he wants to prove himself in the premiership…and he wasn’t alone and wouldn’t have been alone.

    Sack pardew now…nothing to lose whatsoever

  • 205 manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:56 PM

    sage i’m not saying he’s not to blame man but i seriously and i mean this any other manager that would not just put up with it but actually deal with it which he has

    all the anger at this club should be directed at 1 person (well plus 1 in kinnear) but ya know wat i mean

    ashley needs to leave and as soon as we reach 42-45 points the fans that turn up need to show the board that they ain’t happy

  • 206 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:57 PM

    Are we playing that way now?I have been respectful to you,don’t patronise me.How do you know there are better managers until they actually manage this club?

  • 207 Laurent Robert 32 // Feb 1, 2014 at 4:57 PM

    28 shots. Now tell me how many in the box? That is the problem, clueless in the final third without our wonder goal duo.

    All game my pal and I were saying “long shot” after each one happened. “Long shot.” We said that many times today…

    Long shots are vital, but a team should be basing tactics around effective passing to get in the box. We don’t do that.

  • 219 toonluvva // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:03 PM

    Ben3Arfa, Transfer Sage et al.

    I feel your pain as a fellow season ticket holder who, thankfully, wasn’t at the match today.

    May I respectfully point out a couple of facts :-

    1. It is not mine or your club. It belongs to Mike A$h£ey who bought it from the previous regime.

    2. Mike A$h£ey is not a footballing man. I’m sure he would be the first to admit that.

    3. A$h£ey bought the club to either sell it on quickly for a profit, and failing that to promote SportsDirect.

    4. It is the TV revenues that are the be all for VA$h£ey. He wouldn’t be bothered if we played in front of less that 30k fans week after week.

    5. A$h£ey is quite content for us to finish anywhere above 18th. He only jumped into the transfer market in January 2013 because we were in extreme danger of being relegated. There’s no TV money in that!

    6. A$h£ey will keep Kinnear and Pardew for as long as we maintain a PL position. Kinnear will never stand up to A$h£ey about strengthening the squad. Why should he, and more importantly
    does he even know who to get in. Pardew will not walk away from the best job he will ever have. Just stay in the PL, that’s all he has to do.
    Should he actually walk away, Kinnear will take over. I just had goose pimples typing that. Although it would be the beginning of the end of for us.

    7. Sadly if A$h£ey knew even a little about football he would have appointed someone with such knowledge to advise. Like many fellow fans, I realise we cannot compete with Chelski, Manure, Citeh and Arsenil for money, but for a modest outlay we could assemble a team capable of finishing in top 6, and perhaps sneaking the odd CL spot.

    8. We will lose more players in the summer. Krul, Debuchhy, Cisse and Hatem. Bonus time for A$h£ey’s wallet. Do you trust Kinnear to bring in adequate replacements? I sure as hell don’t. Pardew won’t do much about it either.

    9. As a gambler, A$h£ey wil hope that we can maintain their PL spot. If it is going badly he’ll try and reinforce the squad in January 2015.

    10. A$h£ey won’t think about the situation where we could be relatively safe (say 14th) and then go onto a poor losing streak after the January window has closed.

    This is the situation as I see it. The problem lies with A$h£ey and A$h£ey alone.

    The problem is who will he sell to, and what state will our club in by then?

    Like sage said i`m sure plenty would jump at the chance to manage the Toon with a decent set of players to already have at his disposal.

    If you havn`t got out n out wingers why play a system that uses them.
    Its not rocket science just square pegs round holes.

  • 235 padthemag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:12 PM

    You all whinge like f&£k and turn up in your thousands he thinks your a bunch of cu!?s and treats u blatantly like that selling our best players and replacing them with shit don’t cry about how crap we are then buy tickets for fa cup and capital cup he thinks your all cunts and he’s right your the reason he takes the piss and you love it think I might start a business mug off all stupid Geordies just add black and white stripes u will never get it idiots!!!!!

  • 238 toonbrother // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:15 PM

    what exactly was the point of the dummet substitution? to shore up our defence against the counterattack? lol. Guess what it failed. We conceded . Pardumb you suck. What an embarrassment. 3-0 at home 3-0 away.

  • 239 Lu-toon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:18 PM


    Lol! he must be going cheap; Damaged Goods!

    this season , only once, against 9 men, once we go behind , it’s good night

    in 3 seasoning bet he has only done it a couple of times , even with this good team/ squad

  • 241 padthemag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:18 PM

    Why don’t u all grow a set and don’t watch this shit he’s taking the piss and you love complete clowns

  • 242 NUFCarter // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:19 PM

    Dummett came on because Santon was utter sh1t

    Hello, it’s Windy Miller. Plenty of wind in your sails today, Windy? What’s that Windy? Windy thinks there’s a problem? The sails aren’t moving. Windy stands motionless, looking at his sails for 45 minutes, wondering what he can do. Where are you going now, Windy? Windy disappears into his granary where he seeks help from Mary and Paddy Murphy. But Mary and Paddy don’t want to come out of the granary. So Windy watches the sails and makes notes in his note book. Are you ordering more corn, Windy? Windy shakes his head. Who’s this coming Windy? It looks like Farmer Bell. He’s throwing a ticket at you, Windy. That’s a good idea, Farmer Bell. Wave the ticket and make some wind. Windy shakes his head. What’s that Windy? Too much wind in your sails today, you say? Windy nods. Goodbye Windy.

  • 245 TurkishFan101 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    More than damaged it seems, not XL but XXL LOL!

    Anyway, I do not understand why the whole media in North East does not plan a protest and get all the fans to be United and get these clowns out. Its not that hard really, they have already been banned from the ground now all they need to do is help found regain NUFC so they would be allowed back in.

  • 246 Ciaran // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    Like sage said i`m sure plenty would jump at the chance to manage the Toon with a decent set of players to already have at his disposal.

    Really?,with no money to spend,no ambition.And what happens when Jabba sells this decent set of players and brings in no-one?,as a decent ambitious manager why would you want to manage here knowing your best players could be sold without thinking?

  • 248 padthemag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    We lost today coz our owner sold our only world class attacking option 3 days before a derby and had no intention of replacing him we were raped from within the guy is a total retard

  • 249 AusMagpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    I’ll tell you what… I hate my job. I absolutely despise it. I fight through every single day just to pay the bills and one of the only things that gets me through it all is that I know I’ll be rewarded with watching my beloved Newcastle each weekend.

    But what happens when that gets taken away from me by Ashley & Co?
    I’m desperate for a new owner.

  • 250 TurkishFan101 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    Cross out XXL, XXXL :D

  • 251 Ciaran // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    What’s wrong Blacklie?

    Disappointed that your pal Mikey been shown up for the charlatan he is? Never mind, we all back a losing horse some times.

  • 252 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:22 PM


    Because Pardew still can`t make his mind up who to have at left back despite making the sub just about every game.

    Today though was even more strange as we were 0-2 down and takes off an attacking fullback for a defensive one.

  • 253 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    The ONLY way you are going to get a manager and squad with ambition,is if Jabba goes.

  • 254 davetoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    does anyone know if Ashley or Kinnear were at the game?

  • 255 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    Santon was our worst player today.

  • 256 padthemag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    Catchy really how many managers get there pants pulled down then let there fierce rivals spank them the reason we are in this position we are in is Ashley sees 37 points in Jan then surrenders u can’t blame pards u think he wanted to lose cabs it’s people like u who keep this today owner at our club

  • 257 sparky55 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    he wouldn’t have dared go today

  • 258 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:30 PM

    Pardew out!

  • 259 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:30 PM

    Ciaran, Are you talking to me today? You’re normally like Windy when I come on – mute.

    I’ve never seen such a defeatist manager. He showed no passion whatsoever! He stood throughout with his hands in his pockets whilst Poyet was giving his lads a proper rocket even when they were 3 nil up. You’re too young to remember Windy Miller, Ciaran.

  • 260 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:31 PM


    Then like a good manager should do he gets the best out of what he has.

    The difference was shown today look how the Scum played away from home.

    Poyet didn`t have the players Pardew had at his disposal yet played us off the park.

    He played a system that worked for the players he has.

    If Pardew managed a building site he would have Carpenters laying bricks.

  • 261 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:34 PM

    We reeked. They could easily have had 5. Santon was terrible. Why was he taking corners and set pieces again after the Norwich game? No execution in the final third. Players reluctant to shoot. Humiliating 0-3 at home again to that lot. :evil:

  • 262 Ciaran // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:34 PM


    I don’t intend on engaging with you, because you will try (and ultimately fail) to prove that our woes rest on the shoulders of Pardew, and not Mikey.

    The tide is coming in on Mikey.

  • 263 Schwefelberg // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:36 PM

    Ashley has brought BUBONIC PLAGUE to the club.

    Seven years of sickness, the Black Spot and misery.

    Infected by RATS and the PIGWORM !!!

    This is ROCK BOTTOM. What else next ?? Drop two Divisions in consectutive Seasons?

    DISASTER MAN Ashley can do it.

  • 264 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Is anyone else starting not to care anymore :( ? .

    Very worrying from a die hard fan like myself .

  • 265 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Is anyone really that surprised that Pardew made a total balls up of today?

    Is this something new?

  • 266 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:39 PM

    Chelsea must be bricking it facing Pardews 19th century football.

  • 267 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:39 PM

    We were comprehensively outplayed. They made space, passed the ball and finished well. We were hopeless, especially in the final third. No real attack for the next 2 games at least unless De Jong finds his shot. We were surprisingly easy to strip the ball from as well. Both our fullbacks were beaten many times which surprised me on Debuchy’s side but not Santon’s. He has not developed at all as a player under Pardew.

  • 268 TurkishFan101 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:40 PM


    19th Century? more like 18th. 194 long balls.

  • 269 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:41 PM

    They played football and we played rugby!

  • 270 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:42 PM

    We have played few poorer games than this one. Ashley is ripping the guts out of us and probably enjoying it? Very, very weird and disturbed man. Pathetic.

  • 271 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:42 PM


    You started it. You’re one of these one punch run away geysers. You won’t stay for the fight because you know I’ll show you up. Here’s a taster. Would you swap our squad for Sunderland’s?

  • 272 Uncertain Toon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:42 PM

    Pardew needs to man up and walk. The fact that he doesn’t says he is totally apathetic towards the fans.
    For me that is all I need to want him on his way.
    The fella is devoid of character.
    I’d rather have JFK in charge till end of season, at least we could witness in real time him earning his wages!

  • 273 wolfshead@toon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:42 PM


    ive lost enthusiasm however as a chelsea follower i hope they get beat off us next week lol

  • 274 Kamikaze Koala // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:43 PM

    Despite of my comments im a die hard fans and anyone else, but if people continue to go to matches, we should expect nothing else, if attendances drop from 50k to 30k all of a sudden that would be the best message to send, that we want a change!!! i understand people have bought season tickets, seats paid for future games but if we want change we must make sacrifices! i wanna watch and feel proud of my football club not dread when they play!!!

  • 275 JackButler // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:44 PM

    GeordieTwo @267

    And yet 52,000 still continue to turn up every week giving Ashley the justification that he can do whatever he wants with zero recourse

  • 276 Schwefelberg // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:44 PM

    What must Carr think? All his air time, Hotel check ins and expertise just to fill Ashleys Bank.

    Just to see his club humilated and all his time wasted. I hope he gets paid very well.

  • 277 TurkishFan101 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:44 PM

    Kamikaze Koala

    Not even 30k, we need it to drop below 15k to show a difference to that fat mug.

  • 278 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    Pardew would have to be dragged kicking and screaming out of the club.

  • 279 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    I find this to be the most disturbing defeat of all this season. I would bench Santon. He was absolutely hopeless. Anita’s tackle in the box was clueless as well which surprised me. Once we went behind it was over. That is very bad news. Pardew is in a horrible position with the Ashley/Kinnear clown show but he looks out of his depth as well.

  • 280 welshgeordie9 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:49 PM

    Nice to see everybody is in a good mood

  • 281 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:49 PM

    Aye JackButler @272. It really has gotten beyond pathetic now mate. A display like that at home? Unbelievable. And after the same sort of tripe last season. Pardew said we had a plan after Cabaye was sold. Well what was it? To have Ashley pocket the money and slide down the table.

  • 282 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    Why are some clowns supposing Ashley and Pardew don’t get on pardews a bigger mate to Ashley than Kinnear.

  • 283 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    How about you then welshie @277? What did you think mate? I was horrified. They made us look feeble.

  • 284 manxpie // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:50 PM

  • 285 MrMojoRisin76 // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    Your forgetting the scum have a team goal,to stay up,what is our team goal for the season now?,absolutely nothing,the same people who were praising Di Canio last season are the same people who are praising Poyet today and look what happened to Di Canio.

  • 286 BuckLuck // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    Big Pappa Cissé@261

    I feel the same. Ashley and his muppet manager have made me putting some of the feelings on hold. I want them back, but I don’t rule over them unfortunately.
    At lest the derby makes my blood boil, so my feelings for the club is as strong as it’s always been… it’s just suppressed.

    Incredible that one man can do so much shlt. The man is stone cold.

  • 287 wolfshead@toon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:52 PM


    if thats true they cant be very good mates if my mate hung me out to dry id tell him to fvck off

  • 288 Tino asprilla // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    I am with ciaran on this one it is ashley we need rid of. Not mad that cabaye was sold however i am mad that he wanted to leave due to lack of camps league ambition and the buck stops with ashley for that.

  • 289 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:53 PM

    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

  • 290 mag // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:55 PM

  • 291 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:55 PM

    How many people calling for fans not to turn up ever really care enough to turn up themselves? It’s the same people who don’t even come out of the woodwork at the best of times. They follow a ball around on a screen, seeing a little window on what’s happening, or worse, they listen to the radio in the car when taking their lass to the shops. They then urge other people to boycott, but when you ask them which regime will take over, good or bad, they don’t know how to answer.

  • 292 daztoon // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:57 PM


    Yes there goal is winnings games and ours is try not to lose there is a big difference.

    One of the mangers today has a cup final to play after only 3 months in charge.

    The other just wants to do as he is told and keep us in the top 10.

  • 293 Big Pappa Cissé // Feb 1, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    Saying we have to change our playing style because of Cabaye leaving when we have a technically gifted midfielder like Marveaux on the bench stinks of a clueless manager .

    Deciding to play hoofball just shows how tactically inept he is .

  • 294 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 6:01 PM

    Spot on Kimtoon @329. This has happened over and over again to us against Poyet. He is shrewd tactically and set them up beautifully against us again. Pardew just can’t handle it and with a lame duck owner we’re really in the soup again now. How many clubs would have let the striker situation get this bad? The lack of commitment from Ashley speaks much louder than any words could. :evil:

  • 295 morocco0015 // Feb 1, 2014 at 6:02 PM

    well thats it lads, 32 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 !!

  • 296 morocco0015 // Feb 1, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    sorry , meant 52 yrs not 32

  • 297 GeordieTwo // Feb 1, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    Sorry wrong blog! Still the sentiment holds true. Pack it in Ashley. You don’t care about the club. Maybe you even hate us. Pathetic man. Go back to your tat shops.

  • 298 Kamikaze Koala // Feb 1, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    Mate all due respect, i can not attend games atm because im in canada does that make my opinion mute as i cant attend games, mate newcastle don’t have any “plastic fans” because they all left last year when were really sh*t!!! For are owner where money is the be all and end all how do you suggest we make a point if you know a better way please let us all know!!!

  • 299 stan anderson // Feb 2, 2014 at 12:18 AM

  • 300 arpeco19 // Feb 2, 2014 at 8:16 AM

    I haven’t watched the video, because I’m not interested in the drivel that comes out of his mouth. Mike Ashley is here for one reason. To make MONEY no other reason, he is not interested in winning trophies for our club(even though that’ll make him money!!!) he’ll be happy to finish between 7th and 17th every year so he receives a payout of £60m+. Being in Europa cup does not interest him because there is no MONEY involved in the competition. IMHO he is at Newcastle to fill his boots until Glasgow Rangers get back into the SPL then he’ll use the money he’s gained from NUFC to buy them as it’ll be a guaranteed way into the champions league. Where as I’ve stated before he’ll make more MONEY. There’s a pattern here. On the football side, what can you say about this muppet who manages this team? He classes himself as a tactical master, what were his tactics yesterday? Anyone have any answers to that? Why does he constantly play sissoko out of position? It worked for one away game so he plays him there all the time….Why have Ben Arfa track back all the time when he’s our flair player with an eye for goal.. Santon is not a fullback end of, he want to play higher up the pitch you can see that everytime he plays, solution, play Haidara at fullback with santon in front of him, build a partnership, like Enrique-Gutierrez. Yesterday’s team should have been 4-2-3-1.with it being flexible to going to a 4-4-2.. Krul, Debuchy, Williamson, Taylor, Haidara, Tiote, Sissoko, Marveaux, Ben Arfa, Santon, Luuk de Jong. It’s not rocket science, play people in their correct positions and they’ll play better football, don’t ask Ben Arfa to track back, leave him on the halfway line when we’re defending a corner. That is all..
