    We won something? Does that mean we can all relax now?

    I’ll be the first to start this off, I love you Mikey – Top job!

    Excuse me, my sarcasm alarm has just gone mental. Back in a bit.

    They wouldn’t have won if Pardew was coaching them.

    Tuff,
    I’d imagine there is a lot of discontent in the dressing room. I was told by a lad who worked as a club educator that departing players had to sign a non disclosure agreement regarding the workings of the club, what exactly it extends to he didn’t know, but it would be nice if this is Shola’s way of giving Ashley the finger on his way out, rather than keeping quiet.

    I apologise to fans that I may have abused, insulted or sworn at.

    But one thing I will not apologise for is calling fans attending the games Mashley Puppets as that is not abusive, an insult nor a curse.

    Piling up headaches with study and all the negativity to burst at one point and it was just building and building untill today. As Ibiza said, I was looking for an argument more like rant as well which meant I was looking for trouble.

    They wouldnt of made it into the cup final let alone win a cup if Pardew was in charge.

    Probably recoup the sunday pub players to play and bench the u18’s to rest.

    Ashley has been watching too many gangster movies, making the players sign the vow of omerta!

    firebug…you are not going to get 52.000 fans on board with that – not even close – just as much as you state you cannot get season ticket holders to give their season tickets!

    …and if so some other will just my ticket.

    Maybe the fans are just not that displeased then (it seems they are not prepared to sacrifice anything personal)

    Tuff,
    On the whole shoestring/budget philosophy, I believe that it could work, but won’t under this regime. It has to start off from the right standpoint. It would need to have in place a highly productive academy – La Masia and Jong Ajax – already, with various feeder academies globally to ensure a conveyor belt of talent. It also would require having excellent coaches in all aspects of the club to ensure that the maximum is achieved by each player. Finally, it would also need a solid spine and decent basic squad.

    Sadly, we started off by selling parts of our solid spine, and without a developed academy locally or any sort of linkages globally to academies, add this to an incredibly poor coaching set up and you have a recipe for disaster.

    “you say the club has a cancer, well maybe so, when my dad had cancer we as his family supported him and help him as much as we all could, therefore is our club has a cancer shouldn’t the fans be as supportive as they can be in these times of need?”

    I really want to stop talking about this now, but this should be final comment about this then.

    But you are not curing the cancer, or even getting rid of it.

    You are feeding it to expand upon the stadium to fans so it makes it feel like its normal to be a club without ambition, without the noise and heart set on the entertainers, the act of coming together with mates,kids,lass’s and enjoying the match.

    Also, a human life is regarded much much more than a football match. You can go and see your team any time you want, but once your close family member passes away, that’s it unfortunately…. It is too late and nothing can be done to bring him/her back to life.

    Going to a match is not a life or death situation, but I know fans see it as there religion and life but I do not like them getting taken advantage of ever.

    As a nufc fan, with other nufc fans you are considered as family.

    Would you let the cancer rot the club and its fans to the root and just carry on going and going for the cancer to expand.

    The money is what Mike cares about, its was flows in his blood everyday, maybe his family as well but we should not get personal as any person deserves privacy.

    If I was a departing player and they asked me to sign a non disclosure there is no way I’d do it, and no law in the land stating that I had too! Why would someone? Of course some sort of financial incentives knowing fatty

    Here ya go sign this

    What is it?

    Just ya bonus for ya loyal years of service

    Ok, thanks

    For me giving up season tickets have nothing to do with trying to hit NoNuts on the money and neither has it anything to do with whether other will just go instead!

    …it’s about principal and about each individual making a person standpoint and sacrifice.

    Remember what you are giving up is nothing compared to what other have been forced to give up in the last century or so (it’s peanuts compared)

    From where I stand from the outside looking inside we just look spoiled and pampered!

    I just cannot see an empty stadium, if it happened then the silence would be deafening I agree. The consequence however could be more detrimental to the club, and even if it only happened for one match it would give the regime in charge free excuses for a year or more.

    In getting a stadium full of people to act in one voice you just need to play a game of pass it on. Tell the person next to you what to say and pass it on.

    If only half of the crowd respond that’s 26000 people shouting with one voice, couple that with a few banners etc and the message becomes clear, if you want change you have to work for it.

    Demonstrations have worked in the past, and given that the voice now would be heard across the world it has a better chance than nothing.

    firebug…personal I agree, but the point should be that you are willing to give up something you hold dear regardless – on principal. That I believe is true sacrifice!

    …because I hurts and because you do it not matter what others are doing. For me that takes guts and I nothing but respect for people you act accordingly.

    You know what’s so funny?

    It has taken Shola this long to speak out

    Just because he knows he is not getting a contract extension to still get paid while doing nothing or even a coach role he is coming out with all this stuff.

    I have no respect for him, cause funny enough if he got offered a new contract extension he would be defending the owner and saying how Mike has plans for the summer to expand and make this club much better.

    Also, this sounds like Pardew has talked to Shola about this as he is scared to speak out in the media even a moment without Wendy interrupting and keeping his job safe.

    He basically spoke for Pardew in my opinion as he has nothing to lose then to retire and go..

    All people care about is money and there own needs nowadays.

    If they could see the needs of the others and help the poor more even then there wouldnt even be poverty.

    Im talking about all the rich, millionaires, billionaires that need to step in and donate together to solve this issue.

    Oh well, we know in a year or 2 no longer will there be middle class but only the rich or the poor.

    Lilongwe – ref the Toons model. When I first considered it I liked the idea.
    firstly a good team/squad that could hold their own -supplemented by Mr “El Gourdo” Tubbs promise of a couple of new/decent players per year. Accompanied by a conveyor belt of new talent form the academy. Resulting in those that excel being sold for very good profits for investment back into the kitty.
    Unfortunately if any individual elements are not in place -the scheme fails. Clearly the conveyor belt of youngsters has been forgotten about and/or those assessing the quality of the youngsters have been way off the mark for a least five years.
    The team now cannot hold its own -so that aspect has failed.
    Bearing in mind those first two failings -the idea that 2 new players per year will suffice -will also fail -the neglect means we desperately need more.
    Football is “relative” in respect of the other teams you play against – if they go down the route of big spending on proven players -ie spending all their TV dosh and getting into further debt with a bit more spending -and we do it on the cheap -we’re probably going to get a thrashing more often than not.
    Throw in the big club “fiddling FFP” and not being sanctioned and it all adds up to not a level playing field.

    If you can’t find anything else to do for a few hours on a Saturday, then you must lead a very empty, depressing life. Given the meek, anaemic atmosphere at St James’, I’m probably right for the vast majority. There’s a few hardcore fans that still try to rouse the masses, to no avail; there’s a few hardcore fans that stay away, only to be replaced by casuals that go for a ‘nice day out’ – the middle-class scourge.

    Please SHUT UP PARDEW

    Headline: Alan Pardew admitted being surprised by Newcastle United’s recent form as he prepares to return to the touchline against Arsenal following his ban.

    “It is hard to believe really, when we beat Palace (in March) that we would end up like this,”

    “I’m absolutely gutted with events after the last-minute goal.

    “I didn’t think we deserved it. Unfortunately we are going to have to wear it.”

    Going to have to wear it? What is this twat on about

    Also, we did not deserve to win that last minute goal against Crystal Palace with Ben Arfa assisting and Cisse scoring with Ben Arfa getting dropped immediately afterwards.

    Watching that video and seeing Bigirimana languishing in a reserve squad after the heights of. His premiership appearances makes me wonder how a player like that summons up the motivation to keep trying. Having been used as one of Pards patsies and hung out to dry he must know that as long as Pards is at the club, he is as high up the chain as he’s going to be right now. Just shows that good academy talent can be deliberately squandered all in the name of manager/owner politics.

    To remake a club in a single transfer window. That is what is required now but with Ashley? Ridiculous proposition. He’ll take the cheapest route possible such as extending Shola’s contract, andforcing Colo to stay to the end of his contract. One area where I do see Ashley spending is ACM. Our attack is a joke but so is our ability to provide service to the strikers. With Benny completely out of favour and probably leaving and Cabaye already gone this is the one area where Ashley will sanction some spending. Look for a poor start to next season followed by the sacking of Pardew as Ashley panics.

    G2 don`t worry mate, Abeid will be back next year so that is that position sorted. And if he is really going for the cheapest option then surely Shola as player/manager is the way forward.

    I think a lot of fans are grudgingly waiting to see what transpires over the coming summer.We all know as fans major surgery is needed to get the squad up to par. And at last a player “strolla” has come out and basically admitted that in house there is the same sentiment from the players as the fans………..Whether Ashley decides to act on this is another matter!!

    Well said Jack Butler mate @35. Pards to Carver by phone during last game:
    “Johnny? Tell the lads it’s looking very good. Have them sit back further though until the end of each half. Then push everybody forward and try to snatch a goal. Yes, that’s right Johnny. We’ll catch them by surprise mate.”
