Furious Alan Pardew Slams Players – Orders Extra Training


Any more performances like last night’s and Alan Pardew’s job has to be on the line and the Newcastle manager knows that and seems determined to put things right – and quickly – at Newcastle.

Alan Pardew – orders extra training for players

And there’s no day off for Newcastle players today as they report back to training at 9;45 today.

And the manager reckons that only Mathieu Debuchy and Paul Dummett came out of the game with any credit.

And certainly after another disastrous performance from Italian Davide Santon at left back in the first half – he was pulled at half time for the second time in three games – it’s time to give local lad Paul Dummett a run in the side.

This is what a furious Alan Pardew said to the press today:

‘We’re back in at 9.45am today.” ‘I don’t have to stand there in my 150th game and watch a performance like that.”

“I don’t care about how good Tottenham were, it doesn’t interest me.”  “Tottenham were good, but my team has to be better than that. I am not going to go into any more detail than that.”

The players were booed off the field by their fans last night – and it’s a reaction to a pitiful performance that they richly deserved.

And the fans will be venting today and for the next few days – to get yet another humiliation out of their system. 🙁

But what’s also needed at Newcastle, is for the manager and players to put things right, and come the Aston Villa home game a week on Sunday, we are hoping the fans will be fully supportive of the team (forget the regime),  as the club tries to turn around this disastrous situation.

But strong leadership is now required from the manager and some of his senior players at the club.

    TADS,

    We expect Pardew to speak up against Ashley.

    Fans probably need to speak up too in a way that the message reaches Ashley. Whether it is by not going or by protesting or sitins watever.

    The weather?

    I wasn’t at the game (don’t live in the UK) but the commentator commented on the silence of the crowd.

    I noticed this too, albeit from watching the games on the TV, and others on this blog have mentioned it too which is a puzzle as it’s in stark contrast with away games where the Newcastle supporters are always very vocal and often drown out the local support.

    Spot on. Stop the bus with Pardew, we want to get off ! He has taken us as far as he can a long time ago.

    Yes a new manager is always a risk but I can’t take any more of this soul destroying garbage under this league 1 chancer.

    Ash closed the singing section, it’s a library these days.

    Rotonda,
    Thanks, not sure how we could possibly incorporate that into an excuse for an abject performance unless he was also a father figure to all the players on show and they were in mourning.

    Nobody at the club has showed ambition. It stems from the top and filters all the way down to the players.

    ED. — will you please stop putting that pic of Ashley at the start of a new thread . It really is upsetting . Is is the face of a man I would gleefully smack flush on with a bulldog shovel the happily , by using a Mel hammer , knock him on the head until he has disappeared into the ground inch by inch like a tent peg – even that would be too good for Ashley . Sorry jail but I couldn’t resist it fella .

    But I doubt Ashley would notice that.

    Wow
    So your seriously blaming the fans

    Sage
    We don’t need a manager who’s flavour of the month mate
    We need a proven experienced manager
    Sherwood is working with players who have been at the club for years
    He is looking to his senior pros to lead the newer lads
    He’s not had to introduce his own style of play and we don’t have the players to match that style
    He also had £100m of European finest young talent at his disposal
    Me nan coulda turned spurs fortunes round

    He’s acting like it will need to change next game… that next game was the one after Reading.

    He’s way out of his depth and the players know it.

    Actions speak louder than words. His CV and performance capacity are his actions. They are a load of rubbish.

    Ashley, your fault.

    Well don’t send your team out to play like that! Once again he’s reverted to his beloved 4-4-2 and hoofball.

    He’s got players twice the calibre of Swansea, Southampton or WBA so I don’t see why he has to get them playing like a bad conference team. Even Gateshead play much better football.

    I would excuse one player who didn’t seem to stop trying – Goof. Otherwise we lost every 50-50 – no, actually, every 70-30. It felt so flat after Adebayor was gifted the first goal (he is an a**ehole – should have been booked for incitement) and especially when Cisse missed 2 good chances to equalise in the first half. Still, had nice meal in Za Za Bazaar beforehand.

    Ash’s biggest problem is always his footballing appointments, ie JFK, Wise, Pardew etc as they were all his drinking buddies.

    That said, we had 8 current internationals on the pitch at different times last night. They don’t all go bad overnight

    I can take the City, Arsenal, Chelsea defeats, it’s the Hulls Sunderlands, Cardiffs at home that are inexcusable

    Taylor & Williamson are too alike to play together. They’re both clueless without a clever defender beside them. They’ve both played well with Mbiwa. Time to bring him in.

    Catchy
    Remember when i said people would think you were a Mackem if they took your name off the posts because you are that negative about the club?

    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5
    we want 5 we want 5

    If you were watching the match in a crowded pub with other Newcastle fans and you started chanting that at 4-0 i guarantee you,you would get smashed,somebody would slap the sh1t out of you.You are a troll,you are a horrible c@nt.

    At least Ruud Gullit had the decency to walk instead of hanging around like a bad smell.

    Might get some cilic bang, squirt it on Pardew and bang the dirt is gone.

    Tads,
    Under Ashley we don’t need a manager at all. We need a number of experienced coaches and a Head coach with an excellent record of player development. A manager should manage, Pardew doesn’t get to do that as he has limited involvement in anything other than training and match days.

    Paul Clement, Gary White, even Steve Round would all probably do better under this system. The coaching element is the most crucial part for any prospective Pardew replacement as long as Ashley is around.

    I would argue that a good manager will use the senior pros at any club, whether he knows them or not. It is too early to say sherwood is going to be a good manager, bit it is too soon to write him off, too. He certainly is showing signs of a managerial brain.

    The match was so quiet yesterday. It has been the same for many, many months.

    Blackley, you said you are the main one to shout at Pardew from the Milburn. I heard a couple of loud shouts to Mr. Silver Tongue from that area. It must have been you. Good work.

    It would be from me if I was near him.

    Cillit bang has a different product for different situation.
    Stain n drain
    Grime n lime are examples.
    To remove all cockney influence from our club, we would need NEW CILLIT BANG ‘CHAS N DAVE’ 😀

    Same old, same old, the back five were terrible, well Debuchy being the exception maybe, strikers like the curates egg, good in parts, Loris made some cracking saves, Cisse lack of confidence. Need a massive turnaround for the Villa game, but we expected that after the Mackems but it did,nt happen, wait and see, more sleepless nights

    Some Fans still not blame pardew.

    I guess they will give him a chance should a new owner come in. Hypothetically speaking.

    32 losses in last 66 PL games Mismanaged

    Cups? You are all too aware.

    Anita the worst midfielder at the club totally clueless the two donkey centre halves, De Jong send him back! Sammy not even championship Middlesborough wanted him, Santon, Pardew likens him to Gary Neville which sums Pardew up a useless chancer who’s been sacked from every club he’s meddled at.

    I’m not saying he won’t be a good manager, just saying he’s been at spurs for donkey’s years knows the senior pros inside out and the clubs philosophy
    Wouldn’t want a guinea pig manager here next is really what in saying we need a proven manager

    Lilo
    I’ve said for the last couple of seasons we need a much much much better coaching set up and some top coaches bought in
    But seeing as Ashley knows feck all about the football world I can’t seem him rushing out and getting us a coaching team lead by Bergkamp with De Boer managing us happening any time soon! 😉

    Most fans attach some of the blame to pardew. Some realise it isnt ALL his fault, and that Ashley and the players have to take some of the blame.

    Mag, I like Anita a lot, but he needs runners around him and interchanging movement. He doesn’t have that here, so sometimes makes him look worse than he is. He is a Dutch international and was valued at Ajax.

    Blame Pardew and Ashley.

    What showed last night:

    Santon’s days are numbered. I’ve always said that a left back should be left footed. Dummitt should play from now on to the end of the season.

    Ben Arfa’s days are equally numbered. He is a luxury.

    Anita can only function effectively when he is one of a three man midfield where Tiote is present.

    Sissoko’s strength is his running ability at the opposition. He is not a midfield general who can spray the passes around. He is better on the right wing with his surging runs.

    Sammy appears to be more effective playing away from home where he is extremely good at breakaways where we tend to be on the back foot. At home I feel Goofy is a better option.

    Tiote, Colo and Remy were sorely missed. Hopefully they will be back fully fit against Villa.

    pardews lost the dressing room. Another club would sack him, appoint someone who will change the dynamics and in our position could quite possibly qualify for europe. the media say it was all down to cabaye going, it was well before that But this is newcastle and we are more than comfortable for mind numbing stablity

    The Newcastle team I saw last night was very similar in body language to the team that played last season.

    I don’t go to many matches as I work on Saturday I reckon I’m going to struggle to give my season ticket away from now on.
