Newcastle Fans Fed Up – It’s Nowhere Near Good Enough

Alan Pardew talked after the game yesterday at the Emirates, which turned out to be a sixth successive defeat in the Premier League in a year that Newcastle have literally completely collapsed, and in 18 league games since Boxing Day, we have lost thirteen of them, won only four, and drew at Norwich City, and we’ve looked terrible most of the time.

If we play like this next season we will be relegated.

Olivier Giroud heads second goal – completely unmarked

We were fairly competent last night for the first 20 minutes or so, but then our weak defense couldn’t hold Arsenal, and at the half the game was basically over – and Arsenal were 2-0 up.

It was over because in  13 of those league games we haven’t been able to score, and after the game Alan Pardew had this to say:

“We have to reflect on the second half of the season.” “And make sure we don’t get ourselves in that position again.”

“We have to make sure we are stronger.” “The first half of the season maybe we overstepped the mark or excelled to a degree.”

“I thought we gave good value for money for this football club in the first half of the season.” “In the second half we haven’t.” “We have to make sure we give full value.”

Newcastle fans are completely fed up and now the next game at home to Cardiff City – the bottom of the league side over the season meets the bottom of the league side in the last 18 league games – which is Newcastle United.

A defeat in that game would just be too much to bear, let’s just say that.

Alan Pardew is at fault for this collapse for not being able to motivate our players, but so are the players themselves, who have played very poorly.

And so is the owner, who stupidly sold Yohan Cabaye in January, the second time Mike Ashley has sold our best player in the middle of a  season and not replaced him.

What tells Mike Ashley that he should be the owner of a football club?

This is simply nowhere near good enough for Newcastle United.

    Judging by his post match comments, Pardew thinks that 3 points against Cardiff will make everything right again. Wrong as usual Mr Pardew. The pathetic excuses continue from him and us fans have had enough. So Mr Ashley do something about it, otherwise there will be a lot of empty seats next season.

    There are no more unanswered questions about Pardew.

    I like the way J4A put it. He is equally complicit in all of Ashleys doings.
    He defends Ash instead of distancing himself from transfers etc. He dedicates wins to him. He takes no stand. His cabaye comment was special.
    “we should replace him” changed to “well, I dint say this window”..
    His match perspectives are absured.
    His rationale of substitutions is to get Shola a contract.
    Plays favourites.
    Abysmal defensive tactics. Go a goal behind and you might as well stop playing.
    First 1st half of season was down to Remy and Cabaye..both r off..

    Owner this and owner that…Pardew DEFENDS the owner time after time. His thinking-feeling-speaking-acting are not in sync. The man is a mess. Simply a manipulator with no strong ethics.

    If losing against Cardiff would result in Pardew and his staff being replaced, by a competent team, I would happily take the loss.

    This has gone too far. Pardew is a terrible person for piling so much misery on us fans. He should do the noble thing and f off.

    We have the fourth worst goal difference in the league and by the end of the season the Mackems could have a better one but still be relegated.
    So Pardew looks to the summer, he would be better looking to the sky to see if divine intervention could help.
    We have a Press Officer – but no news on HBA
    We have a fitness coach – but an unfit team ?
    We have defensive coaches – but no bus to park
    We have forwards – but they go backwards
    We have a new Chairman – but no idea
    We have a Manager – but with no team to support him
    We have an owner – but with no heart
    We have to watch this every week – but at least we have the summer ( to recover in ) ?

    I am absolutely gutted, not because we lost I expected that, but because of the lack lustre display. Lack of passion, our inability to defend set pieces, and our incompetence going forward.

    The way we are playing at the moment we could not even beat a Sunday league team.

    Pardrew thinks that he and his ego is bigger than the club, that he is safe in his job, and the probability is that he is safe in his job.

    I would never ask fans to stay away from the home games, but I would never pay any money to watch this team, I would sooner watch Gateshead or Hartlepool.

    Like most other fans I want Pardrew OUT, but I just don’t see Ashley complying with the fans wishes.

    God help us next season.

    Things will never change while we are getting full crowd’s, Fans need to stay away it’s the only way to save this club as it is going down FAST, Ashley is like a leech draining every drop of blood he can get and by turning up to a home game you are showing support to him.

    I’m really puzzled as to what player does what on field i think we might have some strikers on the pitch but I haven’t actually seen anyone shot the ball and score, we might have a midfield but I’m a bit baffled i haven’t seen anybody running and making crosses ” oh wait I saw some guy in a black and white shirt pass the ball to the opposition. Defence ” oh yeah saw about 3-4 guys standing there and the ball rolled past them into the goal.

    So frustrated with the lack of heart out there at the moment is it too much to ask for a team to play a game in which they were payed to play.

    And another thing how many chance can one manager get come on even Man u chanced their coach and they are playing better football then we are it just goes to show you that ashley doesn’t have a clue about football only money and apparently he doesn’t have an idea how to fire some one either
