Top English Clubs Chase Newcastle Target

12:57 pm, Friday, May 2nd, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 192 Comments

There was news earlier this week that Liverpool have joined the clubs who are said to be targeting Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in the summer, and Newcastle have been strongly linked with this striker continually this year.


Alexandre Lacazette – top Newcastle striker target

Alexandre is having a good season at Lyon, and in 51 total appearances in all competitions this season, he has 22 goals and 8 assists.

The 22-year-old had previously been watched by Newcastle, Arsenal and Juventus, but now it seems Liverpool have also joined the race for the striker, and it’s almost certain those three other clubs will be able to offer the youngster Champions League football next season.

Lyon would like to keep their striker for at least one more year, but at the moment they are in 5th place and 9 points behind Lyon in 3rd place in the French League, and a place in the Champions league next season.

So it could well be they will need to sell their striker to keep their financial situation stable.

Newcastle seem to have some decent targets lined up for the summer transfer window, but we just cannot compete with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, and we suppose the only advantage we can offer is that the striker would be a regular starter at Newcastle, and that may count for something – we hope.

Both Arsenal and Liverpool have multiple striker targets, and for example one striker target for the Gunners is Loic Remy, and there was news a couple of days ago that the deal to sign him couldย be close.

The unfortunate thing is that he’s certainly not staying permanently at Newcastle.

Alexandre turns 23 later this month, and he has two years left on his Lyon contract, and he could cost around ยฃ10M, but that would be decent deal for Newcastle, since the lad is already a good player, ย and would only improve with regular first team games at Newcastle.

But with some top clubs becoming interested in the player, if they do go after the 22 year-old, Newcastle will need to look at the next on their list, because he will not be coming to Newcastle ย – unfortunate as that may be.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Get Joe kinnear on the phone with B Rodgers.

    Stop pursuing Lacazawett or we will beat yous on the last game!!

  • 2 Graeme // May 2, 2014 at 1:02 PM

    If he’s on the steps at SJP, in a Black & White shirt, it becomes believable.

    Until that point, he’s simply one of hundreds we are said to be interested in. I’ll believe it when I see it!!

  • 3 theartfuldodger // May 2, 2014 at 1:06 PM

    Oh boy…will the walkout happen or not…

    Finally some excitement on matchday…
    Something to watch…

  • 4 Graeme // May 2, 2014 at 1:06 PM

    Ed, NUFC can in fact compete with anyone for good players – they simply choose not too. They hide behind a variety of excuses, but that is what they are – excuses; just like the excuse of an owner we have, just like the excuse of a manager we have.

  • 5 mindshaft // May 2, 2014 at 1:09 PM

    No chance if a top four club comes in for a player we’re after?
    Well according to P45DUE we can’t compete with Swansea , Southampton, Everton, Spurs or anyone else in the top half of the table which leaves us fighting it out with Hull, Crystal Palace, Villa, West Brom, West Ham and Scumberland for any leftover players

  • 6 mindshaft // May 2, 2014 at 1:10 PM

    The will they / won’t they walkout will definitely be the most exciting moment of the match on Saturday

  • 7 Ciaran // May 2, 2014 at 1:11 PM

    What I see as a massive positive, regardless of the timing of the walkout, is that the media are now putting intense scrutiny on NUFC.

    Talks of walkouts has ramped up the pressure on the club, which is why Pardew is so desperately calling for the fans to stay.

    Let’s set aside these relatively minor issues and focus on the fact that we’re all on the same side here.

  • 8 mindshaft // May 2, 2014 at 1:12 PM

    no doubt we’ll have a few hundred people walking out but spread around the ground which will hardly be noticeable although am sure the cameras will pick it up to laugh at the ‘mass protest’

  • 9 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 1:14 PM

    I think the reason NUST are taking a but of flak over this is because rather than support a protest that was already in place they have created a new identical one 9 minutes later for no reason at all!

    Your right it shouldn’t matter if fans walk out on the 60th or the 69th minute but sadly it does
    We’re supposed to be making a United front against the way the club is being run
    Instead it looks like there’s already a divide before the action has even taken place!

    I’m sure NUST have there reason for wanting there own time but for a group that relies on media coverage and the fans to really spread the message, i think they should of thought about how the statement of moving there walk out back 9 minutes can be used in the media

    It makes the fans look fractured and like all these groups are working against each other and now as a direct result they are getting hammered on social media and the local media potentially undoing all the hard work they have already done
    I appreciate your a member on the board and praise you for efforts for change, but imo it’s a fumble from the NUST and for people from the outside looking in it makes it all look a bit of a shambles

  • 10 Ciaran // May 2, 2014 at 1:19 PM


    The issue is that the 60 minute walkout, while gathering pace on the internet, had no focal point, no group championing it per se.

    Regardless what people think of NUST, by providing a vehicle which to set the protest on, there is legitimacy that comes along with that.

    I respect that there can be negative views on the manner in which was done, but the overriding point is that fans are willing to do something, and NUST are willing to back them in doing so.

    If 52,000 walkout on 60 minutes, NUST will be supportive of that. To me the time doesn’t matter, nor should it matter, what matters is that the fans do something, do anything.

  • 11 Graeme // May 2, 2014 at 1:20 PM

    TADS, Agreed, it should have been co-ordinated for maximum impact – now it appears to be fractured, for no obvious reason at all.

  • 12 Macas // May 2, 2014 at 1:21 PM

    Ciaran – So why did NUST hijack the walkout? There was no need whatsoever, especially so close to the game

  • 13 wolfshead@toon // May 2, 2014 at 1:22 PM

    a walkout on the 60th minute yeh right fenwicks window job ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 14 JackButler // May 2, 2014 at 1:22 PM


    It simply looks like any protest is fractured before it’s even taken place and that the fans cannot organise their own stand against Ashley and Pardew.

    There was no logic in changing the time and the only agenda here should be people taking a stand TOGETHER and not two separate groups calling for different things

  • 15 guvnor // May 2, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    Walking out after 69 minutes after paying for a ticket – real smart, especially if we’re winning…. DOH!

  • 16 Ibizatoon // May 2, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    Right people, new protest. No one enter the ground for KO, you can only come in after 70 minutes.

    Got it? Good. That’ll show everyone.

    Joking aside, yes it would be better if everyone was on the same page, but the point and message is still the same. Let’s not let the search for perfection ruin the work that has been done.

  • 17 Ciaran // May 2, 2014 at 1:25 PM

    Actually, if people have been following the #60minutewalkout on Twitter, you’ll realise that it was already fractured as it stood. Some people thought they were supposed to leave at 4pm – 60 minutes after kickoff, while some people thought they had to leave on the 60th minute of the match – which is 4.15pm.

    This type of fracturing and lack of clarity can sometimes occur when organic protests are sprung from Twitter, and while the passion is in the right place, sometimes direction and clarity is needed.

    NUST have afforded that level of clarity in my view. People can still leave at whatever time they choose, but I don’t think it is as negative as some people make out, and certainly not a ‘hijacking’

  • 18 Ibizatoon // May 2, 2014 at 1:27 PM

    Why do some people think that if we’re winning and people walk out the message will be lost or not effective?

    It’s not simply about results or this one game, is it?

  • 19 toonking // May 2, 2014 at 1:27 PM

    having thought about it i can see pardew becoming sacked for sure this summer for one reason and one reason only, ashley getting the chance to avoid spending money.

    if pardew was still manager next season ashley would know that he has got to spend money this summer because this run we have had since january has been telling him we are a very weak squad at the minute so desperately need players.

    the thing is fans are making it sound like the players aren’t the problem at all it’s actually the manager who has caused all this.
    so what i think is going to happen is pardew gets the sack, we bring a new manager in moyse maybe, then we will see a much less active transfer window and instead see all this team getting new contracts.
    so be warned people that pardew getting the sack could be a disaster waiting to happen.

  • 20 Graeme // May 2, 2014 at 1:27 PM

    Ciaren, The protest at 60 minutes had been “Out There” for quite a while and as you say, gathering momentum.

    If NUST had wanted to “Champion” the cause, they should have simply added their voice and backing to make sure maximum support and impact was achieved.

    I think NUST have not helped the cause whatsoever in promoting our contempt and disgust with the regime. They have missed a big chance there.

  • 21 bobby mango // May 2, 2014 at 1:28 PM

    If any other prem clubs are interested we have no chance.

    See villa linked with Hernandez, Holtby and Lescott. Man I’d love ANY of those 3 at Nufc. Would instantly improve the first team.

  • 22 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 1:31 PM


    Like i said I’m a big supporter of NUST
    Fair enough if they felt there was no mission statement but perhaps then they could of offered guidance?

    I don’t know mate, I’m trying to take the shine off what is happening if will be great to see a positive action
    The point I’m simply trying to make is that we know the club love a bit of spin
    If we really want to put the club under severe pressure there needs to be one clear message, a few separate protest make it look like the fans have no real direction or idea so how can they demand from the club?

    Like i said, they’ve done great work and i’d hate to see it all undone because these groups, all the groups – not singling NUST out, have some more communication as to the direction we’d like to see the club take
    I thought that’s what T4C were doing are they still heavily active?

  • 23 JackButler // May 2, 2014 at 1:31 PM


    the reaction on social media to the NUST intervention has been largely negative with people questioning their agenda in changing the time on an already agreed and understood time.

    It may be a small point but it’s a small point that shows we are not United

  • 24 wolfshead@toon // May 2, 2014 at 1:32 PM


    im not sure but i think moyes used to get more than 6 players in two years so he would want some money to spend otherwise if he fails we get the old i inherited a poor team routine

  • 25 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 1:33 PM


    walkout = most excitement all season lol !!

    Ok you’re Lacazette who you’re going to sign for?

    1) Rodgers who will develop you a la Sturridge, Suarez, Coutinho, Sterling etc and give you CL or Pardew who couldn’t develop a cold and couldn’t even offer you EL. Hmmm….difficult one.

  • 26 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 1:34 PM

    I have it on good authority the origin of the “…piss up in a brewery…” line can be traced back to a Geordie brewer.

    MA must wake up in fits of giggles each morning. Hopeless people.

  • 27 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 1:35 PM

    Whether you are going to the stadium or not, going to walk out before the end or not, you should be in support of fans attempting to show unity in action. The main consequence should be that Ashley reacts to the consensus of fans opinions and moves Pardew out of the club.

  • 28 monasnyr99 // May 2, 2014 at 1:36 PM

    Thereโ€™s no chance there will be enough people walking out on the 60th minute to make any difference. Itโ€™s going to be embarrassing and the local/national journalists are going to have a field day, again. In my opinion the support of the walkout is all going to depend on the game, whether itโ€™s a few hundred or a couple of thousand, and Ashley will be p***ing himself laughing at it all.

  • 29 Ciaran // May 2, 2014 at 1:37 PM

    I just thought I’d come and give my 2 pence on the issue. It could have been handled better, granted, but we have what we have. I will personally like to see fans walkout at whatever time they choose, some action is better than none.

    I don’t see it as a missed opportunity, or a damage to the reputation of NUST because they are not a protest group, our M.O is to buy a stake in the club, but we will lend our voice for the fans when need be.

    If it fails, no doubt people will look to blame NUST, however, people would have been blaming NUST if they didn’t get involved (damned if they do, damned if they don’t) so it will roll right off our backs.

    Feel free to slate NUST if you wish, we will not stop trying to do what is right for the long term future of the club. The main point being ‘long term’ – walkouts, protests et al are transient issues, and no doubt, with this lot at the helm there will be plenty more reason to protest in the future.

    Anyone going to the game, make your voice heard and vote with your feet on the 60th minute….or is it the 69th minute…maybe it’s the 89th minute? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Do something. Do anything! I’m off folks! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 30 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 1:38 PM

  • 33 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 1:43 PM

    There are parallels between NUFC supporters ineptitude in organising a protest for the common fan and lack of a coherent hard left political party in the UK. A few splinter groups that have splintered themselves, each insisting, uncompromisingly, their way is the best, until their messages become lost in the rabble and dissipate, all because each want to be seen as the saviours, the establishment cackling scornfully.

  • 34 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 1:46 PM

    I’d like everyone to stay and tear Pardew limb from limb, if they dare to do a lap of honour.

    What will happen is, we’ll score a crummy goal around 55mins to go 1-0 ahead after a drab performance and everyone will remain in the stadium, with very little in the way of animosity being aired.

  • 35 wolfshead@toon // May 2, 2014 at 1:47 PM

    its a pointless exercise even if it did happen once people come through the gates hes got the money anyway
    the only time fatty loses sleep is if theres relagation danger

  • 36 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 1:50 PM

    I’m very intrigued as to if Pardew has the balls to stick around for the lap of honour this season, didn’t he bolt down the tunnel last season?

    Be interesting to see the fan reaction to the players this time round, last season was poor, but at least there was effort and commitment, neither have been shown this season

  • 37 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 1:50 PM

    Isee Manu are getting Van galla and kluivert. If only we had the wit and imagination to get De Boer and Bergkamp.

    I have to say a potential list of Bruce, Mackay, Pulis and Moyes doesn’t exactly get the pulses racing one little bit.

  • 38 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 1:53 PM


    no lap of honour this season

  • 39 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 1:53 PM


  • 40 Ibizatoon // May 2, 2014 at 1:54 PM

    Tads…I think Pardew said there would be no lap of honour, but they will come out to the centre circle to thank the fans.

  • 41 Ibizatoon // May 2, 2014 at 1:55 PM

    I guess the thinking is they don’t believe anyone can throw anything at them from that distance, but I’m just speculating…

  • 42 JackButler // May 2, 2014 at 1:56 PM

  • 43 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 1:57 PM


    Tomorrow is a very significant day, in my eyes. A crossroads in our future.

    I’d love to know the stats on the demography of the St James’ crowd. I reckon there’s too many families and old folk for them to ever be mobilised with any real punch, these days. They don’t want confrontation.

  • 44 JackButler // May 2, 2014 at 1:57 PM

    If this walk out deosn’t happen, guess who’s gonna look pretty silly

  • 45 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 1:58 PM


    I know but Everton lost Lukaku for 11 weeks and didn’t spectacularly implode, as Martinez seems to be a manager who has a plan A, B, C and D. Not sure Pardew even has a plan A, other than hope for the best .

    Similarly Arsenal lost Wiltshire, Walcott, Ozil and Ramsay for most , if not all of the season and still managed CL qualification and a cup final.

  • 46 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 1:58 PM


    A comical suggestion, but it’s probably got a grain of truth to it.

  • 47 toonking // May 2, 2014 at 1:59 PM

    but that is the only type we will get whilst ashley is in charge.

    ashley has only once shown what we thought was ambition and that was the season which helped us get 5th.

    since then he has did nothing but weaken a team.

    managers has brought in are hughton JFK keegan(who walked out) shearer(who refused to remain) and pardew.

    back room staff he has appointed wise lambias JFK upped charnley.

    so you might get what u want and see pardew sacked so will just have to accept the likes of mccarthy pulis moyse and bruce because this doesn’t take away the fact ashley is an owner good managers don’t want.

  • 48 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 2:00 PM

    Spent half the season lethargically jogging around the pitch now they canny be ars3d to walk round it and thank the fans for putting up with the sh1te they’ve served up since jan?

    We’ll just stand in the centre circle then mooch back off the pitch

  • 51 ochytoon // May 2, 2014 at 2:03 PM

    In all honesty, I’m not convinced this walkout is the most effective form of protest. Its going to be hard for the media to distinguish between who is simply leaving the game early and who is leaving as part of a protest. I also don’t believe half the people who have agreed to walking out on 60/69 minutes will actually do so should we be winning.

    In my opinion, not celebrating if we score and chanting “Pardew Out” immediately afterwards, would be the best form of protest. It consolidates our stance towards Pardew and shows that we no longer care about the results whilst he is manager. Imagine we go 1-0 up and only a few thousand fans cheer. An almost silent St. James after scoring would really send the message home.

  • 52 JackButler // May 2, 2014 at 2:03 PM


    In all honesty it’s the perfect slap in the face to end the season.

    Let’s hope there’s no one there for them to clap

  • 53 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 2:03 PM

    pardew would play Hernandez right midfield, Holtby left back and Lescott defensive midfield!

  • 54 toonarmydownsouth // May 2, 2014 at 2:04 PM

    What a shame eh!!

  • 56 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 2:06 PM


    Because the most important ingredient in a Martinez team is his football philosophy. Then the players are secondary. The only common thread in Pardew’s wisdom is lump it to the tall guy at the back stick. Pardw brings nothing to the table and he implicitly admits this whenever he whinges about missing key players. None more so than Cabaye. The few that said our fifth season was disproportionately based on luck (ref decisions) individual brilliance (offensively and in last ditch defending) have been proved emphatically correct since.

  • 57 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 2:06 PM


    yeah a lap of honour would tire them out and we don’t want them to be too ” hyped up ” now do we !!

    Honestly you couldn’t make it up . A book of pardew-isms would be a national best seller and a must read for every depressed footie fan needing a laugh at our expense.

  • 58 Macas // May 2, 2014 at 2:08 PM

    There may well be a number of fans that had initially planned to walk out in protest against Pardew that won’t bother anymore as they don’t agree with the NUST. In my opinion NUST have cocked up big time and the whole thing could turn out to be a farce. If they wanted to promote themselves and their agenda then I feel they might have achieved exactly the opposite with their meddling.

    “The most important thing is to try to get a stadium on Saturday that gives us a chance, and we need to make sure that we put in a performance in that first 20, 25 minutes that gets the stadium on our side and gives us a platform to try to win the game.

  • 62 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 2:16 PM


    Point taken but no manager should collapse that badly over losing just one player.

    After all, Cabaye played in 5 losing games in a 7 game sequence just before he left, so I think other factors are present here.

    Too simplistic to just put it down to just one player. we are not a Sunday league team and pardew didn’t want to play our other play makers who surely couldn’t physically have been able to do any worse than the record pardew has established without them.

    Not a fan but look at what Pulis did with a very poor and far inferior squad.

    Pardew is so inflexible he thinks every game should be ”contain” till the 70th minute and try and nick a goal with a moment of individual brilliance.

    Yes i am worried that ash will only get another British B lister, but no reason to keep pardew, as he’s simply not fit for purpose.

  • 63 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 2:16 PM

    Now the press are fully aware of the planned protest, anything less than a significant minority leaving their seats will be seen as a fail. The result of the actual match has become inconsequential and everyone should be encouraging solidarity and mass action.

    If you would sign a petition asking for Pardews removal without any hesitation, then leaving your seat should not be a serious issue.

  • 64 lochinvar // May 2, 2014 at 2:18 PM

    Man Utd players voted with their feet by slacking off to force out Moyes who in their eyes was the root cause of their demise realising that they had become Manchester’s Reserve team.
    Have our players effectively done the same? They have lost their mojo because they are disillusioned with Carver and Pardew as well as the JFK shambles and Cabayes departure.Would I work with that lot – not a chance – it would depress the hell out of me.
    Whatever happens or doesn’t happen on or off the pitch on Saturday makes no difference – thats how sad the whole mess is.
    Leadership comes from the top and we have an owner who doesn’t even watch most games – it takes a big man to admit to and change mistakes – has Ashley got the bottle to front up the mess and either put it right or move on – who knows and therein lies the problem. No direction, no clarity, no communication, no clue, no hope. Should be reported for beaching the Sales of Goods Act – goods have to be of merchantable quality and fit for purpose – if not you are entitled to a replacement or refund, doesn’t look like we will get either.

  • 65 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 2:20 PM

  • 66 Geremi's Prosthetic Leg Fund // May 2, 2014 at 2:21 PM


    Absolutely. Now the press have got wind and even the big hitters like the BBC are promoting it. From my perspective, we as fans now have no choice but to flood out between 60 – 69 mins in order to retain our integrity. The timing isn’t so much essential as is the end goal of the majority leaving within an acceptable time window, 9 mins is just about fine in my opinion, any longer and it will look fractured and lose impetus.

  • 67 martoon // May 2, 2014 at 2:22 PM

    I’m not having a pop at people who don’t go to matches but I find it gauling when people like Ciaran come on here to rally the troups to support the walk out (60 or 69 minutes) when they can’t support it themselves because they never go to SJP!

  • 68 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 2:23 PM

    I live in Hull. Bruce has had them playing some very attractive stuff on occasions, with an inferior squad, he’s a Geordie and has integrity and dignity, doesn’t undermine his authority at evry turn with contradictory statements and outlandish claims I’d take him with Huddlestone in tow. Not a leap, but definitely a step in the right direction. Probably too much self-respect to work under MAs remit though, don’t think he’d be able to say all the bare faced lies and spin required.

    The reverse is also true, those who do not go to the stadium denigrating the choice of those who wish to protest from within.

    Geremi @ 66

    Absolutely spot on. It doesnt matter when the walk out starts, as long as it does start. As you say, it would take all of 9 minutes to get a substantial part of the crowd out of the sitting arena anyway.

    I’ll be watching via web, from about 120 miles away – fingers crossed!!

    lochinvar – interesting thought, the players are possibly voting with their feet to get Pardew out, it is either that or they are so badly coached they are doing what they are trained – either is bad.

    The ironic thing is, Ben Arfa is the one player that would play to save Pardew. Alan is a bit of a moron. I had a lot of respect for him… that time he jumped in with the crowd to celebrate a goal, I thought he was brilliant. I have enjoyed some moments of his management, but the most of it has just been sickening. Pardew is playing checkers with chess pieces.

  • 73 cyprus // May 2, 2014 at 2:29 PM

    Is it 69th or 60th? I must admit, I’d find it hard to walk out at the end of a game, especially if I was winning. What if the team is playing well, bombarding the opposition, they walk out?
    Why didn’t they plan to walk in late, the stadium all nice and empty for the cameras, for the first, say, 26 minutes? (last championship one 1926-27)?
    My guess: it will look messy, a couple hundred people leaving from around a stadium of 52,000. Good intentions, bad idea.

  • 74 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 2:31 PM

    As I have previously said the result is inconsequential, but if by chance we were one nil up and Cardiff managed a draw or even a win after the walk out, does this not show the importance and influence of the supporters?

  • 75 Laurent Robert 32 // May 2, 2014 at 2:32 PM

    Rotonda, the guy is absolutely pathetic isn’t he?

    In desperation he is trying to appeal for fan backing to simply ease the abuse on him yet he told us that last week as well. He’s been banging on about a change in performance for ages and get people to put their heads back in the sand in the same way governments do with needing people to vote. Collectively, at least this walkout is a start. Some won’t even turn up.

    Crap… crap, then more crap. With the same verbal diarrhoea dibbling out of Pardew’s mouth every time with the same inept performances.

    “the players need me in the ground…” crap performance, crap result. “the players need me on the touchline” crap performance, crap result PLUS three of his excuses also returning in Sissoko, Debuchy and Remy. On top of that, we aren’t in any cups.

    He’s well out of his depth. Get out.

  • 76 Ancientcoptic // May 2, 2014 at 2:33 PM

    Two march outs in the 60th and 69th minute could work as a positive. It means there is a double chance of people walking out… there may be those undecided in the 60th, who have a little think about it, and walk with the 69th.

    If there is significant numbers in both walk outs, it will get twice the coverage, as it will be reported in both instances.

  • 77 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 2:36 PM


    I have always proposed the idea of a picket line prior to televised games to negate any pre-match build up within the stadium. However, now is not the time for alternatives but a United effort to potentially alter the course of next season, or at least make someone responsible pay the consequences.

  • 78 Ancientcoptic // May 2, 2014 at 2:37 PM

    This one is the cherry on the cake. Pardew speaking after Arsenal.

    โ€œThis is not about me, Hatem or any individual player.โ€ โ€œWhat is important is the team and the performance.โ€ โ€œThe team has worked very, very well.

    I am starting to wonder if Pardew is psychologically sound… I am not one to mock a mental condition for fun, but I seriously think something isn’t right with Pardew.

  • 79 cyprus // May 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

    I get you. I’ve basically stayed out of this because, due to distance, I only make a game or two. So I won’t be going. It’s unfair for a guy like me to call for a boycott. It’s up to those 52,000 and I won’t criticise either way, if I’m honest ;). Your suggestion is MUCH easier achieved, however.

  • 80 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 2:41 PM

    The team Pardew would pick if he wanted to entertain the fans, at the very least, in the final game.


    At least we’d have a fret, eh, Alan?

  • 82 stuart no9 // May 2, 2014 at 2:57 PM

    the one thing that worries me is that some fans on here seem to bein 2 minds about walking out IF we are winning at the time. First the one thing you have to understand is that the result means nothing to the supporters but everything to pardew and ashley.
    Ok we may be winning but if you dont get up and walk , expect the same shyte served up next season with pardew in charge . is that what you really want ??

  • 83 Big B // May 2, 2014 at 3:01 PM

    for Cardiff to win they just have to nick a goal coz theres no way we are scoring one

  • 84 stuart no9 // May 2, 2014 at 3:01 PM

    carry on from last comment – second – if pardew gets the sack , we have 4 players here who are looking to be away , they might decide to stay if ashley appoints the right manager, benni-krul-remy-debuchy, could all stay if the right man comes in . this is our chance to show them we are not going to put up with it , i also think it is what the team want.

  • 85 hitman // May 2, 2014 at 3:02 PM

    odds on this planned walk out will be a complete 70two says if we are winning it will be forgoten.fickle as they all shout for change but havnt got the stones to do anything.

  • 86 stuart no9 // May 2, 2014 at 3:02 PM

  • 87 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 3:04 PM


    People would rather burrow along obliviously, then take their heads out the sand and work towards an unknown, intangible goal. Too much hard work for no clear resolution, they’ll say.

  • 88 Mike's Iron Curtain // May 2, 2014 at 3:06 PM


    I wouldn’t say all. Pardew and his divisive management has managed to insulate himself with the grunts. Our talented players would love to see the back of him, I’m sure.

  • 89 Graeme // May 2, 2014 at 3:06 PM

    I can see it now!

    “Newcastle fans scrap mass walkout after their team goes 1-0 up”

    egg? Face? Much? The problem is this, if we do manage to score and are actually winning after 60/69 minutes people will just sit there and be happy because we are winning and fail to grasp the bigger picture of our abysmal record of 14 defeats in 19 games! Shame really as it’s a good idea and if I was going I would do it but not before hurling abuse at fatty and his puppet for my duration in the ground

  • 96 70TWO // May 2, 2014 at 3:16 PM

    hitman – You have missed quoted me, but towards the same aim. However I would like positive encouragement directed towards fans to do the right thing, mass action can only take place through solidarity and the sense of belong to the group. What are the situations which would stop supporters leaving their seats and what are the reasons we can use to persuade otherwise?

  • 97 mag // May 2, 2014 at 3:18 PM

  • 129 theartfuldodger // May 2, 2014 at 3:50 PM

    Why I think the WalkOut is a good idea

    1. It involves the opinion of fans who go to games. General idea is that those who go to games are not really fedup of Ashley/Pardew. Atleast thats what Ashley thinks.

    2. Its been made really simple. No posters or other things that can get you warned or thrown out. Its as simple as get up and leave.

    3. Its a one time only thing and that too you do not miss the entire match day feel. So excuses like Iv held the same seat for N years or I need to meet my mates could vanish. Also sacrificing a small part of the money spent on ticket is not hard.

    4. Its said that 14K season tickets have been cancelled for next season. If true, it would be visible in the game when fans leave.

    5. It puts fans in a hot seat. They need to Choose. You are either in or out. Also pressure could dictate if you are undecided but 3 people around you leave.

    6. It could unite potentially unite all NUFC fans against the regime and put pressure on Ashley.

    The news has spread well enough and if it does not work as expected, it means that there are at least 40-50K who if not against the regime are at least happy enough to put up with it.

    This will be the story for the whole of the summer transfer window for any decent players.

    We’ll be linked with a player whose agent will confirm our interest thereby alerting the top clubs. Then nothing until the player signs for one of the other clubs. Another one we failed to get over the line. In reality we wouldn’t have come close to meeting either the valuation or wage demands, or more likely both. Oh, I also forgot to mention our complete lack of ambition!

    Let’s be honest, no half decent player will be interested in playing for Sports Direct United.

    This is the one time everyone should muck in and get their point across and make their concerns known.

    The players will know deep down it has nothing to do with them.

    Ace Club Journo G2 reporting from St. James Park. Just had a nice tet a tet with Alain Perdue vis a vis wor latest losing run. Here’s what Alain had to say:
    “I have been in tricky situations before. This is a situation where I perhaps need to dig deep, and I have got no problem in doing that. Also we’ve really worked hard on our scrambly bits all week in practice. Now when we get into a bit of a titsup scramble the lads know what to do. I’ve got Willo sharp as a number 2 pencil as target man for all set pieces. The back 4 have had their mouths taped shut all week so there’ll be absolutely no communication during the game. It’s all set for an absolutely spiffy ending to the season I promise you.”

  • 141 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 4:11 PM

    The walkout is an excellent idea. An empty stadium for the last 20 minutes. A nice clear message to Mr. NoNuts. Even he might be able to understand it. Howay the true supporters!

  • 142 kevymartins // May 2, 2014 at 4:13 PM

    “We need something special. We have to go there and defend well against the likes of (Moussa) Sissoko, (Loic) Remy and (Shola) Ameobi, but we’ve got to do to them what they do to us.”

    Not sure whether to laugh or cry? Ole mate, if your plan is to do to us what Shola will do to you then perhaps Catchy is right and you’re the manager for us.

    As for letting Alan deal with his problems – that’s a bit selfish, he clearly needs some help.

    estechco…I like it. Let them know what it’s about and continue the support from outside like you normally would do inside.

    G2…Now let’s not get started with what’s in Mikes pockets…I don’t see a happy outcome with that conversation ๐Ÿ™‚

    Geordie two, your hypertension needs restrained.

    validator @164—- tell him to phone the AA and give him the wrong number.

  • 176 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 4:49 PM

    Do any of you lot realize how much Mike is spending on meat pies for Benny alone? Well? And then thereโ€™s nasty talk of having to spend on players in the summer by wor Alan. Ugly stuff according to Mike. Heโ€™s a bit worried. He might even lose his appetite for a few minutes if there is a big walkout. I hope you lot are happy, making wor beloved owner upset.

    Put him in touch with G2 that’s enough for anyone to tolerate.

    As Senior Official Club Journo now on Tyneside I promise to bring you all the best stories from inside the club. There will be laughter, there will be tears, possibly some screaming and hair pulling. Wait, what? Who said anything about head butting? We’ll get the story from the players, from their WAGs, and from top club officials. Just happy to be of service. Subscriptions will be 7 euros monthly.

    G2, how long have you been smoking cannabis resin?

  • 180 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    Hello? Who’s this? DeJong? You’re saying your name is DeJong? Can I spare you a few minutes? Look Luuk you’ll have to stop sobbing if we’re to continue. That’s better….what seems to be the problem? Alan is being mean to you? He says you couldn’t kick a football through a wet paper bag? Well that’s just disgustin’ Luuk. I’ll have a look into this and get back to you. No, you had better stay in your car for now.

    very good, like that!!

  • 183 aidytoon9 // May 2, 2014 at 5:04 PM

    Sorry Nust.

  • 184 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 5:05 PM

    Pre-owned players! Pre-owned players! You know like pre-owned cars in the States instead of Used Cars? Mike can pretend we’re getting new players for the club. No fees! Just bring them in from their loan clubs and announce them as tremendous players for the coming season. This is beautiful!

  • 185 kevymartins // May 2, 2014 at 5:07 PM

    You will see me tomorrow watching the match on the web. I’ll have my popcorn and all ready sitting saying on the 59th minute ooh MA ooooh MA OOOOHHH MA THIS SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN. Then we score and nobody leaves haha

  • 186 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 5:09 PM

    Join in Rotonda mate. What do you think of the walkout?

  • 187 Marty-Toon // May 2, 2014 at 5:15 PM

    60 mins or 69 mins,whatever the time I think it could be way before that.
    If Cardiff score before us then watch the crowd get really miffed and if they’ve planned on leaving then they’ll be leaving before half time.

    Just not sure how many fans have the guts.
    I do however think the team needs all the support they can get tomorrow.
    Watch the transfer window,if things don’t really happen as we expect anyway then fans just won’t buy tickets and won’t turn up.

  • 188 gazzaforever // May 2, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    Remy will score tomorrow, we will win, and the walk out will be a fail.

  • 189 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    I must admit these are difficult times at the club. We’re feeling a bit down. There has been a lack of excitement for a while now. Journo’s banned, heeds butted, meat pies eaten. It’s a little worrying. But think of the summer we’re going to have mates! Are you thinking of it? Are you excited? I know I am.

    Got to do something to bring this farcical club to realise how important the fans are and not there to be shafted and have the P-ss taken.

  • 191 GeordieTwo // May 2, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    This summer will be better than a game of conkers played with Mike’s testicles. You heard it here first mates. Huzzah!

  • 192 Rotonda heights // May 2, 2014 at 5:49 PM
