Pardew – It Was The Injuries – We Could Have Won Today


Newcastle are in decline and we now have suffered five defeats on the trot – eight in our last eleven, and thirteen in our last 18 games in all competitions.

So nobody can accuse Newcastle of doing well since we hammered a nine man Stoke side 5-1 on Boxing Day.

Alan Pardew we were good enough to have won today

But we were a little unlucky today, when Wilfried Bony scored two goals – one in each half in stoppage time, and the winner came in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the game. 🙁

This is what a beleaguered Alan Pardew said after the game:

“We suffered two injuries at the start of the game which affected us no doubt and knocked us out of our game plan to an extent.”

“We were committed today, we showed some nice moments, we got the goal, but two errors at the end of each half cost us, and they are costly because it’s our fifth defeat.”

“The fans I thought were good today; they stayed with us all the game, but unfortunately we haven’t brought them home any points.”

“We have been beaten by some good teams and we’ve probably not been good enough, but today we were good enough to win this game and we should have come out of it with at least a point and I thought we should have won it.”

“But as a team we have made some errors and it has cost us, Swansea got a break at the end of each half and they have capitalized through that.”

“There was not much to be said really other than we are going to have to work hard this week and try and get us a win before the end of the season for sure, and the sooner the better.”

Amen to that.

We lost both Papiss Cisse and Luuk de Jong in the first half through injury – but these two players have hardly been outstanding for us over the last several games.

Mathieu Debuchy came on for Cisse and then Loic Remy came on for Luuk de Jong, to loud applause from the fans, who were extremely patient today, and know the club are in trouble right now.

We have to play Arsenal and Liverpool away in two of our last three games, and we have Cardiff City at home – so we suppose there’s a chance we could lose tall three games.

And that would be eight league defeats on the trot, but that’s looking on the negative side – and our best bet is a win against Cardiff City – who beat us at home in the FA Cup in January.

And this game ends Alan Pardew’s seven match ban – and we lost six and beat Crystal Place in those games – but since we beat Palace – they have won five games on the trot, and now are only 3 points behind us in the league table.

Every defeat before the end of the season will seemingly make it more difficult for Alan Pardew to keep his job as the Newcastle manager.

What do you think?

    Pardew tells local radio that “We owe it to the fans to try and win at least one of the last 3 games”

    Alan, you didn’t hear all the chants mocking you at the end then?

    the sad fact is that I doubt that any fans think we’ll get a single point or goal from our last three games

    The Cardiff one could go any way. Probably lose against Arsenal and there will be a record Premier League score happening on the final game. It will be beamed round the world and repeated over and over for years to come if they win the league.

    were ben arfa, marveaux, obertan all injured too?

    Someone made a good point that by Pardew saying if he had been on the touchline he would have prevented the winning goal, he has trashed carver and hard to see that relationship surviving. So fans, players and now coaches totally alienated by this delusional idiot.

    pardew says we should at least try and win one of the 3 games left. Wow what a winning and motivating mentality!!

    Knowing Pardew, we’ll probably sell Ben Arfa, Marveaux, Anita and Cisse and replace them with Cleverley, Colback, Joe Allen and Danny Welbeck. Pardew is costing us points. If we would’ve played Marveaux today, we would’ve created chances and would’ve won the game.

    win atleast 1 of the 3..

    what a great inspiration for the players. we all know the only winnable game is cardiff. so practically pardew is saying we will just turn up against arsenal and liverpool.

    i really can see a cricket score for the both the matches.

    I’m already terrified for next season as we are under serious threat of a return to the Championship but if that happens again it will be a very long time before we get back to the PL

    How were we unlucky Ed?

    What is the point of saying every week we’ll need to work hard next week in training to put it right? Please alan, keep away from the training ground because I’m sick of that mantra.

    You’ve excelled yourself this week by blaming carver. It’s easy to see what the problems are and how you can see goals coming when you’re sitting in the stands. I’ve been criticising you for not seeing it when you’re pitchside you idiot. If you were pitchside you wouldn’t have seen it coming. You nugget! Welcome to our world!

    Thank god. Ashley would stop the moves. The only English players that I would consider signing would be Adam Johnson and Micah Richards. I still feel that Richards is the best english right back.

    can i also ask why was it a lucky goal btw?

    i mean it was a striker who headed it on and then scored from a return from his own player actually brilliantly so how is that lucky?

    Even if the fat one opened the purse strings i`m more dreading the players Pardew has identified to bring in.

    Players like Obertan and heard he has a liking for Sidwell.

    Look at the difference in Routledge being coached to play the game the way it should be played.

    I’m sorry but there’s no excusing Mike Ashley, he owns the club and has an obligation to do right by the club and it’s customers, regardless of your moral stance on Pardew to absolve Ashley of blame is lunacy

    I think you could add Tomkins, Cole and Colback to that list, but he has already told us that we should be very excited by the players HE has identified 🙁

    forget pardew , lets talk football…. the chelsea official is lucky that he got restrained from the chelsea bench , if he had got to the ref – he would have hit him . no doubt about that , that would have been his career finished
