    Idiot

  • 2 toonking // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:28 AM

    well thanks to the media this match has had not much chat at all and instead it has been like another politics show.

    yes pardew was wrong but if we are to go as far as banning him then suaez is an idiot who should not be in football morineo should be excluded from england SAF should not be praised the way he was and shearer should not have stayed to break that record because they have all done things much more danger than a nod of the head.

    if it was a proper headbutt it would have started off with pardew leaning his whole body backwards then went forwards not just a tilt of the head.

  • 3 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:29 AM

    What would happen to a hull fan who ran on the pitch on seeing the incident, shut his eyes and pushed pardew away with his brow? He’d feel the full force of the law and if he was in a respectable job he’d be sacked.

  • 4 Blofal // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:30 AM

    There was not that much in it. Massive media blow up as will be whatever punishment is dished out.

    What he should have done was dived when Meyler pushed him….. that would have got Meyler a red.

  • 5 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:37 AM

    blackley well if that fan pushed pardew 1st and then pardew reacted he’d be banned and wat ever else

    if you can’t see the fact that the player started it then you are very very stupid
    pardew would not have reacted if he wasn’t pushed out of the way simple as that mate!!

  • 6 Laurent Robert 32 // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:39 AM

    It was a feeble push. Merson said a sort of push. That’s about right. He was running forward with momentum and Pardew barely moved. If I ran with momentum and gave him a push I send him flying back a few metres. Silver tongue barely moved.

    Thick head should have left it at that, not go running after him. He deserves all the punishment he gets for going after him. He should have just let it be and it would have been bad taste for the player.

    As soon as his head goes forward there is intent, regardless of how hard the contact is. If he didn’t mean to harm him even a little bit, he wouldn’t need to have nudged his head forward, nor would he have ran after him looking to do it.

    He is an imbicile and it doesn’t look good for the club. I didn’t want him at the club anyway. This has just added another underline.

    Unacceptable for a manager in his 50s.

    He’s not exactly a bright one, so these things are expected.

    Blackley and Brownlie

    meyler didn’t have to push pards

    pards overreacted no1 can deny that and he was wrong

    there are some angles of it that make the push/barge look worse and some that make the head push look worse and vice versa
    look at how the media are portraying it, its not being over sensationalized much is it

    far worse goes on, on the pitch Charlie adam did he know that leg was there when he, I will say landed on the arsenal players leg yes he did in the grand scheme of thing a lot worse if the players leg got broken bbc hardly touched on it

    pards and meyler are both to blame for nothing more than a handbag incident that we see weekly in every league around the world most of the time it goes unpunished and never mentioned

  • 8 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:41 AM

    if the president of america got pushed out of the way at a visit to a devestated village and then the pusher got shot would there be an uproar about it?

    no because it would be said the president was attacked!
    (thats a laurent 32 kind of anology btw)

  • 9 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:42 AM

    Manxpie

    Don’t you get it? You dont do what pardew did because someone pushes you out of the way in a hurry to get the ball. Yeah meylers action precipitated it but no one, unless their a mindless thug, would do what pardew did.

    As I say, what if a fan came on in the heat of the moment and did the same to pardew after seeing what had happened?

  • 10 darrylwe // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:47 AM

    I’ve seen it a few times but still don’t get the re-action. This isn’t the Cantona kung-fu.

  • 11 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:48 AM

    The fan would be banned for life and if he was in a respectable job he would be sacked. Is there one rule for pardew, SAF and mourinho and another rule for the rest of us?

    If I start singing “there’s only one basher pardew” in the 1892 area like I did the last time, I’ll be once again in danger of being thrown out.

  • 12 Blofal // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:50 AM

    I agree Pardew was out of line and he will get what is coming to him… but I think a plain yellow for Meyler isn’t enough.

    You can’t just run through an opposition manager.

  • 13 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:51 AM

    if that happened to me in the street for no reason off course i’d react!
    and you would to so you can’t say that lol
    and on the footy pitch i’d certainly give him a peace of my mind and if he squared upto me then any thing could happen!!!

    but the point is fella that you seriously ain’t understanding is the catalyst to every situation whichever way you put it!

  • 14 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:52 AM

    Blofal

    Had pardew not reacted I don’t think meyler would have got a yellow.

  • 15 Toonboi4EVA // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:52 AM

    Getting pretty sick of this now.

    Yes Pardew was pushed.
    Yes Pardew over reacted.
    But f**k me!! Talk about an over reaction on everyone’s part….Hes apologized, the clubs fined him, the FA will fine him and he’ll probably get a lengthy ban……..END OFF, MOVE ON FFS!!

  • 16 Toonboi4EVA // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:52 AM

    *OF

  • 17 Laurent Robert 32 // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:55 AM

    Manx, analogies are good. I’m a creative guy.

    You don’t plant your forehead in another man’s face. Plain and simple.

    Stupidity. It’s embrassing even trying to defend his actions. Managers hold more responsibility than even the players to set an example. Even Merson said he hasn’t seen that type of thing before.

    A weak push doesn’t warrant the resulting action. It was shameful.

  • 18 achtoon // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:56 AM

    B and B ‘What would happen to a hull fan who ran on the pitch on seeing the incident, shut his eyes and pushed pardew away with his brow?’ eh?? what the f??? a slight tussle on the pitch is now compared to a fan assaulting a manager??

    i hate this site, full of nutters and bed sheet brigade. i’m off to a more reasonable blog site, if i come back please tell me off.

  • 19 weg // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:56 AM

    The way I see it is there has been an over-reaction all across the board! Meyler over-reacted to Pardew getting in his way and pushed him, Pardew over-reacted and gave him a (soft?) head-butt, the pundits have over-reacted – saying he should be sacked, and the media are fueling it even more! The only ones who didn’t over-react was the ref (for once!), and NUFC with a measured response.
    Meyler deserved his yellow, Pardew deserved his red, his club fine, and his warning! FA response pending.
    What the fans didn’t deserve, was the disgraceful lack of any game analysis and discussion on MOTD! – (for MOTD, read THE ARSENAL, CHELSEA, MAN UTD, MAN CITY AND LIVERPOOL SHOW!)
    Let’s get some perspective here! Pardew acted disgracefully and should be fined and banned for a while. But sacking him is an over-reaction imo!

  • 20 darrylwe // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:59 AM

    According to the Mirror “Former Newcastle managers Alan Shearer and Graeme Souness both called for mad Magpies coach Pardew to be SACKED after his disgraceful assault.” This is so over the top – not helped by the over grovelling apology or the over the top fine. A simple he ran into me and I tried to push him back would have been better.

  • 21 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 12:59 AM

    Manx

    Meyler did next to nowt. Any other manager would have simply held their arms out and said “howay”.

    What sort of message does that send kids in playgrounds up and down the country? Someone pushes me to get the ball so I’m justified in chasing them and nutting them. And I’ll nut them a bit harder than pardew because people are saying his nut was rubbish.

    How’s it one rule for pardew and another for the ordinary punter?

  • 22 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:00 AM

    toonboi exactly but hey lets all follow the media
    the same media that every fan on here normally berates!!!!!!!!!

  • 23 Toonboi4EVA // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:00 AM

    Weg- Bang on there!

  • 24 Toonboi4EVA // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:02 AM

    Exactly..the same media that have also twisted shearer’s words…headlining ”shearer says pardew should be sacked”- Did he say that…….did he f**k

  • 25 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:04 AM

    Achtoon

    So pardew can nut someone or whatever you want to call it but a fan cant do that to pardew right after he’s seen pardew do it? According to the pardew apologists it was nothing so what’s the problem if a fan defends his player by doing the same thing?

  • 26 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:05 AM

    jesus!!! i’m not condoning pardews reaction just showing the people who (including motd) think that it was un prevoked!!

    and the very very simple point is that if the player didn’t push him we’d all be celebrating a great away win (except catchy stuartn rotonda!!) :)

  • 27 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:07 AM

    According to achtoon, when pardew does it it’s a “slight tussle”. when a fan runs on the pitch and does the same thing on pardew, it’s an “assault on the manager”. Wtf?

  • 28 Toonboi4EVA // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:07 AM

    For 1…..a fan would be banned for simply invading the pitch, so your comparison doesn’t stand 1 bit.

  • 29 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:08 AM

    and btw that annoys me more than anything lol!!

  • 30 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:14 AM

    Manxpie

    We all know the sequence of events. We all know that pardew reacted to meyler. Unless yyou’re msking a bigger point that doesnt need saying. This is about whether Pardew’s reaction was reasonable and proportionate. It clearly wasn’t.

    Ive never seen a manager leave his technical area and thrust his head in a players face. The reaction to this across the country has not been overdone.

    People

  • 31 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:14 AM

    blackley stop mate!
    he’s not saying that at all wat he is saying is your points about the fan has nothing to do with this situation

    which it doesn’t!!

  • 32 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:17 AM

    blackley who’s to blame then??

  • 33 anthc // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:20 AM

    Robbie savage of all people whining on about pardew seriously he was one of the worst for studs and sly kicks. And shearer didnt he twat kieth gillespie unconscious talk about double standards. I don’t like the fella but hes put his big boy pants on apologised admitted he was out of order and took the clubs punishment on the chin.

  • 34 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:20 AM

    ofcourse its been overdone
    the player came into pardew aswell
    and i’d guarentee that in the next week in the football league alot worse than wat we seen today will happen!

  • 35 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:21 AM

    You’re missing my point. Of course a fan would be banned for simply invading the pitch! I’m saying if that’s the case and it is, how come pardew can do what’s he done and not get sacked? Its one rule for managers and another for the rest of us.

    The police should get involved just as they would if you or I did the same thing.

  • 36 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:25 AM

    plus when was the last time you seen a player apologise for that kind of thing and get fined 100,000 pounds!!?

  • 37 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:26 AM

    Manx

    How is my point about a fan running on at that moment and doing exactly the same to pards as pards has just done to the player any different. The police shoukd trest both things the same. Pardew has no permission to be on the pitch and the police prosecute anyone behaving as pardew did. What’s the difference? Pardew’s not above the law. Are you saying he is. Or does the law just apply to plebs who hand their tickets to pardew?

  • 38 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:28 AM

    blackley so should remy be sacked and get charged by the police?

  • 39 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:29 AM

    Manx

    Pardew was to blame for seriously over reacting. I doubt Meyler would have even got a yellow had pardew not have done what he did.

  • 40 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:31 AM

    should every rugby match get stopped because of all the punching and gouging in them games if so the whole game should be banned
    and about 30 players a week charged by the police!

  • 41 beermonkey // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:33 AM

    football due to the huge sums of money make it so it cant be compared to normal life,

    take the surez cantona any of them, Liverpool paid 20 mill for surez if they had sacked him for biting ivanavich, he could have gone and signed for the highest wages he could get at any club and Liverpool would have been down 20mill and any commercial revenue they would have gotten out the player

    rightly or wrongly but what are clubs supposed to do write of the money
    it is easier to sack a manager though
    but a player no there will always be a club willing to take a player on even ranger still manages to find a club that will pay him

  • 42 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:34 AM

    Manx

    Remys case was different. It was an instant reaction with no pushing of the head.

    The law is different for sports people because more allowance is made for players. I think the law is right to do so. However, players still have to be careful. Look at big dunc.

  • 43 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:39 AM

    Beermonkey

    The criminal law in relation to this sort of behaviour should have no interest in the financial aspects of football, and it doesn’t so I don’t see the relevance of your point.

    As for rugby players, they can end up in court and have done. Pardew isn’t a rugby player. He’s a spectator in a suit who is not allowed on the pitch.

  • 44 Blackley and Brownlie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:42 AM

    Right folks. Time for bed. I apologise for my spelling tonight but for nothing else.

    I’ll be contacting the authorities in the morning and asking them to prosecute or to explain why not.

  • 45 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:45 AM

    blackley if you don’t know that then its pointless arguing with ya!
    seriously for instance if the houses of parliment had a big scrap it would be delt that way
    if a member of the public suddenly stormed that place it would be classed as a massive incident and security risk!!
    (again laurent ltd)

  • 46 manxpie // Mar 2, 2014 at 1:47 AM

    my point is u are saying using criminal law and in the real world actions like we saw today should result in the sack and criminal prosecution

    football is not a real world surez never went to a court of law over racial comments or biting which if you or I did it our weekends would be busy picking up liter and like u say maybe the sack form our job this is a normal outcome for these types of actions

    people inside football come under bubble of the fa and they will deal with as they see fit, is this right or wrong
    dunno each case should be judged individually I spose

    didn’t cantona get community service??

    I wonder if Pardews fine of £100,000 will be added to the transfer kitty?

    Must have hit him hard financially. I say give him an extra year or two on his contract.

  • 55 midweek weekend // Mar 2, 2014 at 3:03 AM

    Even though pardew earns something like 30 k aweek 100 k fine is a lot of money hell really be regretting his actions

  • 56 89Norcal // Mar 2, 2014 at 4:04 AM

    As usual, the media sensationalizes to astounding proportions. What Pardew did was stupid, but it wasn’t a headbutt. It was akin to what belligerents do when locking their foreheads and squaring off with one another.

    And usually, any retaliation is punished to a similar degree but that doesn’t seem to be the case with Meyler, despite his equally violent reaction.

    Must be because ‘PARDEW IS A MANAGER WHAT IS HE THINKING’ and all the other spastic responses people spout to make themselves feel better.

    He deserves the bans and perhaps the fine, but christ we’ll never hear the end of it now…

  • 57 petey // Mar 2, 2014 at 5:52 AM

    Vince McMahon already has the plan rolling along smoothly. Next week see pardew do an atomic legdrop off the top tier of the stadium

  • 58 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 5:57 AM

    Good to see everyone buzzing over the 4-1 win…..

    I guess Pardew was always going to be the hot topic post match after the incident, didn’t realise it would extend to being the sole topic for most of the blog… Pardew was stupid, personally, I would think the sacking that some have called for would have been over the top. I have a feeling that the FA will react pretty harshly on this, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him banned for the remainder of the season.

    I don’t understand why people are bringing criminal law, and the police debate into this, they would need an entire set of prisons for sports people alone if we were to lock people up for having done something in sport that you weren’t allowed to do on the street, not to mention the court backlogs for more minor incidents. Suarez probably would never have seen the light of day again after head butting a ref when he was a teenager….

    This isn’t condoning what he did, utter stupidity from the bloke, who continues to prove he can’t keep his cool when provoked. Unacceptable behaviour for someone who around a month ago condemned his star striker immediately post match for a similar thing… The apologies and contrition shown have been shown before, which makes it hard to believe the sincerity, unless he has more deep seated problems in which case he should be seeking help and taking a time out from pressured jobs anyway!

    A hefty fine by both club and FA, plus a lengthy spell off the sidelines should suffice as punishment. I read calls for him to be banned from the stadiums for games, that would probably be fair as well, although the ban should reduce in that case.

  • 59 Jail for Ashley // Mar 2, 2014 at 6:07 AM

    Blackley,
    I simply don’t understand you, no wonder your brother Troy Stavers leaves the other blog when you start posting, you constantly slate Pardew for every percieved failure but defend with a sycophantic passion the man who not only sacked a manager who had us sitting in seventh to be replaced with a serial shagger from the lower leagues and then gave him a record breaking eight year contract.

  • 60 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 6:11 AM

    As for the game, I thought we played a very good game of counter attacking football. The defence I can’t decide whether MYM is just adjusting to the Prem, or he really is liable to make stupid wrestling throw type challenges in dangerous areas on a regular basis.

    Still, on the break we looked dangerous, the right formation for the players we have, and some decent football mixed in. Great to see Anita, Dummett, Tiote and Goofy getting involved in passing triangles at times. Thought the midfield were very good yesterday.

    Happy for Anita to get on the score sheet, passed and probed all match, as well as tireless covering of ground and fullbacks. Not sure on my MoM, but I think he would be up there.

  • 61 Oleg G // Mar 2, 2014 at 6:47 AM

    After seeing the reaction of everyone in the news, all the hypocrits, and now the statement of the club.

    I am 100% on Pardew’s side.
    So blown out of proportion.
    Players do this all the time and almost nothing happens.

    Also, yes, he is a manager, not a football player and not a fan. But there was a place to give a red card also to the player from Hull.

    Also, Pardew didn’t do anything that horrible. So yes, he got a bit hot headed, but that is it.
    It was more of a staring contest and passive aggressive behavior from him. Actually who was much more aggressive is the Hull player, but again, no one is talking about him.

    I would really like to hear the words between the two from the moment the player ran into Pardew and until the end.

    Move on. Move the F*** on!

  • 62 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:07 AM

    Christ Ed sh1t stirring much?

    What bearing does the view of a washed up, illiterate idiot who has no place lecturing people on there responsibilities as Role models given his drink/drugs/ gambling addictions and his fondness to give his wife a pasting after a few sherbets in between sh*gging anything that moved

    Seriously Ed take this video down, it’s got f all to do with the situation and is buying in to the ridiculous media hype around this

    Stick to talking about the performance from the lads ffs

  • 63 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:16 AM

    Lilongwe…the problem is too many on this blog stands up for what Pardew did or just for Pardew – they say they don’t but in reality that is exactly what they do.

    Like I said last night this is not a sack able offence but in no way am I going to condone this in any way by drawing parallels!

    …this is why the subject won’t die and why some of us sometimes just stay away. Try reading through the blog of last night – shouldn’t make anyone proud :(

    This club is a disgrace from top to bottom!

  • 64 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:16 AM

    Match of the day
    what a pile of shi*e all Pardew bit of the match
    No match analysis how we scored etc.,

    Savage, a bloody hypocrite along with Shearer ‘I did not stamp on Lenons head’

  • 65 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:21 AM

    Jesper,
    I had a flick through the blog this morning looking at the comments, hardly seen anyone mention the performance or the game in the 100 or so posts I bothered to check. Crazy.

    To be honest mate, I have no interest in discussing what Pardew did. I’ve said my piece on it, and that is that. I’d much rather focus on how good Anita, Sissoko and Tiote looked yesterday. As well as De Jong who without ever threatening had a good game once again.

  • 66 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:23 AM

    Charlie,
    From when I used to watch MOTD the analysis was hardly groundbreaking so them not having any isn’t a huge loss…. Anyway, just cause they didn’t discuss the match, doesn’t mean the blog has to follow suit!

  • 67 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:28 AM

    Lilongwe…only trying to explain why I think the matter got a life on it’s own in here and why no one is discussing the game but only the offence!

    …personally I think we are sometime our own worse enemy :(

    But about the game I didn’t see it so I cannot really comment. I only saw highlights last night. Great first goal by Sisokko by the way!

  • 68 toonarmydownsouth // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:30 AM

    Have you seen the topic threads being put up?

    Many did try to talk about the game, it all ended up the same way
    A fantastic display by the whole team but the gloss was most defiantly taken off by the touch line antics and ensuing media witch hunt

  • 69 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:34 AM

    Jesper,
    My dog was hit by a car on Friday night, so I couldn’t get to watch the match at my usual bar, had to settle for a pretty jumpy stream online, coupled with talksport radio commentary.

    From what I saw it looked a very good counter attacking display. The first goal was almost perfect in its execution as a counter attacking move. The second came from their mistake, but great awareness from Remy. Our midfield outplayed theirs comfortably, and given Hull’s record at home 1-4 is a very impressive result.

    We looked a bit vulnerable from crosses, and they could have had a couple in the first half had it not been for Krul, and their inability to hit the target. But we did our job very well, and they all deserve credit, as well as Pardew for the team performance.

  • 70 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:37 AM

    Tads,
    Yeah, I have seen the topic threads been put up, but lets face it,discussion by blog users rarely follows the theme of Ed’s articles does it?

    I get why Ed puts them up, because he regurgitates and puts media articles in to his own words, so no problem with that. But we don’t need to follow on.

  • 71 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:39 AM

    Jesper,
    Meant to say the dog is okay, fractured pelvis, and dislocated leg so I have to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t move around too much, hence me having to stay in!

    No but if like a few tried you put up a post about you saw the match and it was met with Pardew out because he’s x,y and z what exactly are you supposed to discuss?

    I fully get where your coming from but given the amount of air time this incident is getting are your really surprised?
    And is it really any different from reading the blog normally, post after post of Pardew out?

  • 73 bobby mango // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:48 AM

    Blackley you’ve got a blatantly biased opinion of this incident. I’m no Pardew fan but I really don’t see what this fuss is about.
    That shove on him was more than a mild nudge, as far as force goes much stronger than the ‘headbutt’, which was a gesture rather than a proper action.
    100k fine is savage, even on his unwarranted wages. Think that’s more than enough.
    He’s embarrassed the club and himself but let’s not make this more than it was.

    Tads,
    Ha, yeah the place can be a bit monotonous, hence my less frequent visits. Pardew made a rod for his own back with his actions yesterday in terms of the ‘Pardew out’ posts.

    While I don’t like his actions though, I struggle to see what people came up with to blast his influence on the pitch yesterday. I guess it is that we did it in spite of Pardew, and the players ignored his instructions. Odd that they do that when we win games, but the last 9/10 games they decided not to ignore him most of the time….

  • 75 Shot Bru // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:51 AM

    I agree with you there Lilongwe….lake Malawi a great place by the way…Anita for me is a really gifted player…had a tidy game yesterday…

    We haven’t seen the best of Anita since he has arrived…just glimpses of his undoubted ability..opinions have been mixed since his arrival and criticised unfairly at times…

    Like any player, if he gets an extended run in the midfield he will only get better and will be an important player next season…

    I guess all concerned and the psychologists will now be invited onto the Jeremy Kyle TV show to talk about ” invading personal space”. Fact is that Meyler should not have been in the technical area off the pitch, pushing and then waving his finger like a demented politician. Blair springs to mind. Fact is that most people would react to such nonsense , personally I would have snapped his sorry little finger. “Headbutt” it was not, – no, ask a Glaswegian what a real headbutt is. This was a face pushing contest. The way footballers regularly and now Pardew push their heads together like some rutting deer to prove who is more the man is just pathetic. It’s a learnt copy cat condition . Rather like Savage holding court as if butter wouldn’t melt – talk about the Kings clothes. The FA need to show decisive but fair decision making and have the ability to ignore the feeding frenzy of indignation from the likes of Savage and the other muppet pundits. The FA need to explain their decisions and also relate any outcome to their previous decisions but don’t hold your breath on that. Meyler needs to be retrospectively red carded and banned for 3 games, same as when a bad incident takes place on the pitch. Pardew needs to be fined, banned and warned as to future conduct and no doubt will volunteer to go on an anger management course. What’s the point of the 4th official ? MOD needs to be taken off air and replaced by Lorraine to spare us all the indignant rambling of the so called experts? Rearrange : pot-calling-the-black-kettle-the. Wales v England should be interesting watching in the rugby – 10 minutes in the sin bin for fighting anyone ?

  • 77 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:51 AM

    Tads,
    It would also be nice if we just enjoyed what was a very good victory. I understand why there is a focus on Pardew, but it has gone a bit OTT on here! (and in other media sources, but I expect that from other sources)

  • 78 catchy in norway // Mar 2, 2014 at 7:56 AM

    yes I do not like pardew, I fail to see the difference between what pardew did and Willie Donachie did

    Willie Donachie done something behind closed doors that got made public by the actions of nufc suspending him, a matter that could have been sorted out in house without a suspension , just a fine

    yet pardew does this on national tv and still keeps his job, and let’s not forget this is not a first time he has been very aggressive or physical in his time here,

    I really don’t care what the likes if manx think , pardew is a manager not a player, he was the aggressor in this instance , the player might have done something wrong , but it was not that bad , the player was going after the ball,

    pardew saying that he was pushing him away only makes this thing worse , he walked up to the guy , squared up, and leant in with his head , the whole world seen it

    I’m very disappointed in nufc, this is not how I want the world to see my club

    the sad fact is , this is probably 1 of a hand full of games where we played good intelegent football for 90 mins , and he spoils it

    You’d struggle to find many posts giving him credit for the team set up yesterday tbh, he got it spot on for me

    When i saw that line up couldn’t see anything other than a win tbh was exactly the starting 11 we needed
    The whole team stepped out with a point to prove yesterday a barring a couple of expected efforts from the home team, who sat 4th in the league, we starved them of anything meaningful and frustrated them all over the pitch

  • 81 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:02 AM

    Lil
    watch the match on dodgy vision. Had a few scares first half – Krul pulled off a blinding double save (thought he should of come for the crooss though)
    Sissoko’s first goal well worked goal – must plan work on the move on the training ground as same move as cabaye scored against West Ham and Man Utd.
    second goal well taken by Remy.

    Second half after Krul’s blunder for their goal I thought we played the best football I have seen us play in a long time pass and move with Anita at the hub of everything my MOM closley followed by Sissoko and Goufron. Goals 3 and 4 well taken with players following up shots which we have not done in the past. De Jong also had a good game – lots of movement looked knackered when taken off.
    Don’t know if you saw Anita’s reaction after he scored and the kick of from goal made some strange/happy jesture to dugout/Pardew in stands as if that’s for you boss.

    Pardews punishment large fine and touchline or match ban for the rest of season would be my punishment or as they do/dish out in courts a fine and do community hours.

    I no he was a idiot but what is worse Mourino verbally abusing fellow managers in the press or Pardew’s action.

  • 82 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:03 AM

    Pardew should have just dropped after the push.

  • 83 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:07 AM

    Tads,
    Agreed, I thought we would win, stuck £20 on a 1-3 scoreline, a bit annoying Anita ruined the winnings, but still happy for him and the result nonetheless.

    Completely agree that the team did very well yesterday. Hopefully we can take this and build on it. If we keep playing like that then it isn’t an impossibility reaching Europe, but it is still a massive ask.

  • 84 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:07 AM

    Saw Anita’s celebration,

    That extra bounce in his step, the cheeky wave and massive grin.

  • 85 Charlie in the Gallowgate // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:12 AM

    Anita One
    Must admit I enjoyed his celebration – goal and performance must of mean’t a lot to him.
    Maybe yesterday shook the shadow of Cabaye off him

  • 86 Lilongwe Geordie // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:13 AM

    Charlie,
    Would agree with pretty much all of that. Not sure who I would choose for MoM, but Anita would be up there. Essentially we played the style and formation I wanted in the summer yesterday, although Sissoko replacing Cabaye in the role. Worked very well, and it would be great to keep it like that.

    Would like to see Sammi back on the bench and given a run out when one o the front 3 have to go off, as he did well in his recent games. Did he pick up an injury?

    Shot Bru,
    Lake Malawi is indeed beautiful, hopefully the oil companies won’t ruin it! Anita is a great little player as long as you play football on the deck with passing and movement. He demonstrated that yesterday. But he also covers very well, and he was often covering the fullbacks when they pushed on yesterday as well.

    Never has the word ‘scamper’ being more apt then when Anita is racing across the pitch to chase down the ball.

    Cheers, yeah, meant to put that in in brackets. The dog is in good spirits, just has to be stopped from moving around to much…

  • 89 mindshaft // Mar 2, 2014 at 8:19 AM

    Bit hard to understand why pards did it, push was nowt, we’re 3-1 up and bossing the game
    The butt was pathetic but Bruce was right ,- imagine if he’d done it to Ashley young , he,’d still be rolling round the floor now

  • 90 firebug666 // Mar 2, 2014 at 9:16 AM

    Jesus, it’s the first time AP has actually used his head in a football match, and we won, AP is not getting sacked, he has brought the club into disrepute (AGAIN!) and will get a further punishment of the FA. I do feel that Meyler should also get some retrospective action from the FA. as the ruling states you should not raise you hands to anyone, but he did to AP and should have seen red for that.

    I thought that lads played really well, and handled the pressure Hull put on us in a confident way. Our counter attacking was fast and crisp, and for the first time this season we got players in the box. I thought that might be down to LDJ’s link up play, he looks very competent when on the ball and has a good range of passing, Unlucky not to get a goal himself yesterday, but I don’t think it will be long before he is scoring.

    Excellent all round performance from NUFC.
