Newcastle Need Four New Strikers Brought In This Summer


Alan Pardew was interviewed by Sky Sports after the game today and Alan said the obvious – that scoring goals is difficult for us at the moment, and we’ve scored just one goals since we hammered Hull City 4-1 – and of course Loic Remy has been out injured, and Luuk de Jong and Papiss Cisse just cannot seem to get the job done for Newcastle.

Loic Remy – Newcastle missing this striker big time

This is what Alan Pardew told Sky Sports.

“It was difficult because we were coming off the back of a couple of bad defeats.” “The first goal was important today and their tails went up once they got it.”

“We made a mistake for the second goal and then we were really chasing it and we had a problem.”  “It is a problem for us, scoring goals. We’ve had a couple of big chances today and I think we just need a goal to give us a lift.”

“United were good, you have to say, they settled down and played well.”  “We are getting tagged with having a poor season, but we have had a great season until we lost Loic to his last injury.”

“It would be nice to get him back and I think he is close for Stoke.” “We are lacking a bit of positivity on the pitch, and we need to try and get that in training this week.”

Loic Remy is not certain to be back at Stoke City either next Saturday, and it’s clear we are not the same team with Loic Remy not in the side scoring goals.

That should be a big concern to Newcastle – since we will definitely not have Loic with us next season –  so it seems to us we need to bring in four good strikers in the summer – a whole new strike force.

Shola is leaving, Luuk de Jong is not good enough, and Newcastle would probably take £10M and let Papiss Cisse move on in the summer too.

What do you think?

    No one wants to play for Pardew his retarded tactics scare them off. Ashley needs to wise up and sack the idiot before he empties the stadium.

    You’re finally admitting what we all know but it’s a really pathetically sad excuse to keep someone just because you’ re afraid of someone being even worse, if that were possible.

    Take Southampton for example. Not that far ahead of us in the league but their whole football philosophy is the polar opposite of the miserable fare Pardew serves up.

    Some up and coming manager would love to get the best out of people like MYM, Marv, Benny etc not just write them off like those other (world class) no-hopers Tevez and Mascherano !!!.

    no rotunda its because they stopped us winning the league playing atractive attacking football under keegan!!!

    but it is just like you to hammer me for supporting the team isn’t it!!! 🙂

    so go on whos this manager then rotonda?
    who’s this manager that is ashley’s mate that will show this attacking football with no actual attackers??
    and then score goals for fun with strikers that are worth about £5.50
    you slate me but at least i actually state my argument with facts where as you shout and then state yours as facts that suit your argument and very made up most of the time!!!!!!!!!!

    Curbishley and O Leary would be better than Pardew at this moment in time they would at least make us hard to beat and probably score from set pieces as well

    Remember O Leary’s Leeds actually were great to watch and were in Champions League what has Pardew ever done except bore us to death??

    Obviously I would prefer a better manager its just so depressing watching us Man Utd were terrible and Pardew is coming out with saying they were too good?? Bolloks !!!

    If you’re sick of this blog, the answer’s in your own hands.

    If you don’t like, don’t look and more to the point, keep your discourteous comments to yourself or post them elsewhere. Maybe Ciaran’s blog – he needs the hits!

    here in France, when i talk to friends, they laugh when we talk about how Pardew can still have his job safe…

    On french tv, this afternoon, they said Newcasle was the poorest side of PL recently, and they added it must be hard these days to be a nufc fan, and they have the right to be very disappointed

    Newcastle is becoming a joke in the world, Ashley and pardew are killing this beautiful club. How can it be like that, why people doesnt do anythg there?!!

    here in France, yesterday, in marseille – ajaccio, the marseille supporters decided to booo their team and to expose some slogans in the stadium

    Consequently, in the media, when they talk to the manager, they cant forget to talk about that, it seems that in England, the press is scared to ask a question about that of Pardew. I dont have English tv , can anybody tell me what they say about the safety of pard’s job in the football’talks show?

    I was at the game today, and sorry to say Pards, we lacked the passion and commitment that is needed in the Premier League these days.

    As soon as Man U got their first goal, heads dropped and the second half was far too easy. It was an absolute embarassment to witness.

    I pay my season ticket on a monthly basis. The way things are going, I’d rather withdraw £50 per month out of the cashpoint and use it to wipe my a**e, I’d get a lot more satisfaction out of it.

    If he had an ounce of self-respect, he would resign, but what are the chances of that?

    Anyways apologies, first post in a while, and a bit of a rant.

    but I am not an ashley lover or did you not understand.

    However, I am sure even with ash we could get an up and coming young manager eager to try his luck. This quad could be improved of course it could but it’s hardly the worst squad in the division.

    Someone like Hoddle or the Burnley guy would do for me and would be realistically attainable. Like pardew, not won anything but they play football and right now I’d settle for that.

    Although Pardew sometimes talk the talk, when matchday comes all those promising words go out the window, the team does fcuk all again and then the excuses are rolled around again.

    A few tips Pardew;

    Stop playing the outdated 4-4-2 YOU TWAT, that’s for starters! It does not suit us at all!

    Stop playing the useless Strolla!!!

    Play players in their positions!

    Utilise our squad effectively ie, HBA, Marveaux!! HBA in the hole

    Learn some fcuking tactics apart from lump it long and crosses in the box!!!

    Get pissed off at our team for producing the shite we’re witnessing instead of praising them!! – The saddest thing is they are playing to his game-plan, boring hit and hope football, that’s why he can’t fault the players because in his disturbed mind he sees the team doing exactly what he wants them to do.

    FUFFFF… I better get pissed and cool off I am still fuming about it all!

    Ed,

    Have you been smoking the wacky backy again? 10 million for Cisse? Which nutter is going to pay that for a striker who has scored one goal from open play this season. More like a couple of million. Apart from the first four months here, he has been crap.

    An interview with Pardew while he was at West Ham

    “Tevez was taken off at halftime and replaced by Marlon Harewood and Mascherano made way for Hayden Mullins on 66 minutes.”
    “He said yesterday that the introduction of Tevez and Mascherano had taken away some of his side’s famed spirit and determination.”

    typical pardew – just hasn’t got to grips with the modern game

    Pardew should have been fired a long time ago – if not after the derby battering, then certainly when we imitated a ‘Glasgow Kiss’ on Meyler

    “We are getting tagged with having a poor season, but we have had a great season until we lost Loic to his last injury.”

    One on-loan striker does not make or save a season.
    The rot starts at the very top then gravity does the rest.

    Manx,

    Starting to think you are Pardew’s long lost love child!

    Pardew is the genius who dumped Routledge for Obertan
    and preferred Mullins and Harewood to Tevez and Mascherano

    1) Pardew has nearly relegated 3 different clubs
    2) Pardew has had 2 record losing streaks in the history of 2 different clubs
    3) Pardew has never won anything
    4) Pardew plays negative containing football
    5) Pardew had only one top 6th finish is his whole career
    6) Pardew has been sacked from 3 clubs
    7) Pardew has the record for most goals conceded in a premiership season with NUFC, despite priding himself as a defensive coach.

    ETC ETC ETC!!!!

    I’m no expert in radio or media but it wouldn’t be tough to think of a question that isn’t too offensive to the club. Why not ask “what do you have to say to the fans Alan after a third consecutive heavy defeat?”. Or “aside from injuries and missing players, Man United were missing 9(?) today, what is going so wrong?”. Not in any way controversial but they mean he can’t avoid it, and if he does, he makes himself look even more of a tool.

    You are living in cloud cuckoo land if you think Pardew is the only or even main problem at the club.

    A new coaching team:
    A new manager:
    8-9 EPL standard first team players –
    4-5 EPL squad players

    and as for a new owner….
