    Summing the game up

    We did not push up on the Malaga defence , they had it easy throughout the game ..knocked it about from the back ..always had a man in position when in possession, to receive a pass, even in tight situations ..no rush for them ..they also played some good 1-2 touch football..they are a Team

    Newcastle ‘s passing was rushed and chancy, 40 yard balls played out of defence only in the hope of a Newcastle player getting on the end of it ..it was poor percentage play . We gave them a lot of time and just never pushed up on them only getting a foot in in the last third ..

    Malaga tore us a new one showing Pardew how to play as a team.

    The team is fractious just now . many new faces means we are not a settled Team ..we can give it time ..See what transpires .

    Unless the football philosophy changes ..and it wont imho..Pardew is going back south before October comes.

    “To many youngsters today” said Alan .

    You pick the Team Alan.

    Here we go again.

    The fact that Obertan scored a decent goal should prove to everyone that pre-season form is irrelevant

    Its just about getting match fitness into the players

    Quick word on Elliot. He had no chance with the goals. He did prevent a rout in the first half.

    I voiced my fears about Cabella being too lightweight for the rigours of Premiere league football – rolled around everytime he lost the ball – do people really think he is better than HBA ?

    all of the players that have played so far before today’s match, everyone on here have been praising the squad that they have been doing well, and today because we lost the match now all of a sudden people on here are saying get rid of this player and that player to be honest it’s quite pathetic really.

    But he did habe kids up front, who were inefective. You know as well as anyone that an inefective front line puts more pressure on the defence. I agree his tactics are too negative for nufc, but if you ask someone to be honest, and shoulder responsibility, it becomes rediculous to tear into them when they do it.

    What worries me the most, is that the players looked lost… They simply didnt know what to do, they lost possession with bad passing and they looked like they had no way through the Malaga defense. Its not like we had that bad a team out there, there were plenty of which are supposed to be first 11 players next season…

    I agree with todays commentator that the time for experimentation is coming to an end and the team Pardew hopes to start with against Man City need to start playing together now and continue with every preseason game.

    Online Guy – thanks for the summary, I did not see the game.

    It sounds like nothing much has changed.

    Another season of being dominated by teams keeping possession, and more premature ejeculation style football… the team getting excited on the ball, going crazy and doing something stupid.

    For me this match just proved that we need a commanding, quality CB or we are in big trouble.
    Regarding whether any of the new players are PL quality – just too early. But Aarons again showed some talent.

    We are playing 2 games in 2 days so Pardew has to mix and match. We were poor today but let’s not go and hang ourselves yet! Although Willo is limited he knows how to defend and I don’t understand how he has slipped below Taylor in the pecking order.

    I agree that after 4 years I still haven’t got a clue what Pardew’s game plan is other than to defend (badly) and hope Remy/Ba/Cisse will score a goal .

    Imagine a manager that had us set up to sit back and counter attack with pace, players like Sissoko,HBA, Cabella & Rivierre would be deadly in that set up .

    I think Ben Arfa is our best player and should be starting every week. After that performance, it’s evident that we need him.

    He is good at shifting the Blame ..this time to the youngsters, Clever .

    .Don’t forget he sees the south as an area where we should be recruiting players from ..young players..he said they were from better educated middle class backgrounds and were very intelligent compared to the north. Cant forgive him for that one ..

    We can give Pardew a clean slate though ..New season and all that…Let’s see how it goes..

    Not really surprised they looked lost. It was Cabella’s first game. It was Sissoko’s first game back from his holidays,. It was Perez’s second or third game and he had never played with either Cabella or Sissoko. Armstrong looked lost not surprisingly so with these players around him.

    It really was a poor selection by Pardew. But he has apologised.

    Malaga teached us a lesson today…
    The only thing I took from the game is that
    Haidara,obertan and Aarons gave me great football satisfaction.more than i expected.I don’t know why they told obertan to leave but he looks good today for me.will be good backup in some situation.
    Convincingly beaten though..

    but he hasnt shifted the blame! Honestly it wouldn’t matter what he said it would be twisted on here to make it look like he said something else. You are reading between the lines and getting extracts from 50 shades of grey.

    Just to put it into perspective, Real have played 2 games in their pre-season comp and drawn against Inter (lost on pens) and lost against Roma…

    You think Ancelotti GAF?

    Its about match fitness and implementing a game plan. God help us on the last one but Ashley gave Pardew a freakin 8 year contract so we know the story

    If Pardew doesn’t get the midfield right we are shafted, royally.
    The back 4 had no protection and thus, looked gash and there was no orchestration in attack.
    Tiote will have a busy season, shame he’ll be suspended a lot!
    Still need a playmaker in there alongside him, If we don’t sign one then Anita is the best alternative.
    Bit naive of Pardew to start with 2 young, slightly built attackers.
    The Williamson backpost set piece thing – He must score for fun in training, shows you how woeful we are at basic defending!

    repost;

    Although Pardew might be right in that he started with two kids upfront it is not the reason for that pathetic display in the first half. Our defense and midfield was all over the place in that period, the forwards had nothing to do with it as they barely had a sniff. Any striker up front would have a hard time in that half as we were useless defending as a unit and had no shape whatsoever, it’s not the strikers fault as even if we had Messi there he wouldn’t have helped that much with the rest of the team playing so poorly.

    And once again this tool of a manager doesn’t learn from mistakes and can’t mix it up in set-pieces yet again he played the long hopeful ball to Willo to make something happen, something that never has had any success in 300 times he’s tried the same bloody move!!

    If after 5 games in the new season we have only amassed a point I really hope Pardew is sacked at long last.

    Give me an English Defence every time , you can accommodate the odd overseas player ..and also maybe more if they are top class and proven ..but when your slinging a defence of inexperience and potential together then you need to understand each other.

    How many nationalities play in our back 4 or 5 ? all speaking different languages is not great initially and it takes time ..you don’t get much of that in the prem.

    I see our defence as a powder puff entity ..absolutely no communication and lacking in understanding .

    Not together at all ..an easy touch.

    Last season was Dire

    there is no shifting the blame

    he said he made the wrong selection

    cabella debut
    armstrong and perez 1st start together
    sissoko 1st game
    plus colback and abeid behind them

    i.e never played together!

    thats wat he’s admitted to wrong selection

    and it showed in the second half when he changed it

    Slank… I know, and its only a friendly. But we are getting close to kick off in the EPL and im just a bit worried that we dont seem to have a game plan. We cant penetrate the final 3rd and that was our problem last season as well. And we cant defend, which was also a problem last season… Hopefully im just overreacting, but I didnt get any confidence by that display at all. Hopefully they will do better against schalke, although that is supposed to be a tougher game.

    Surely Malaga were playing young players and experimenting too… I am holding fire on Pardew and giving him one more chance this coming season, but to get owned by Malaga isn’t surprising. Not one bit. They are a well run side. We however still have to master the art of corners… never mind the rest.

    Pardew experimented with some young players and some players who are new to the team. This is what many on this blog have wanted.

    It didn’t work and he has acknowledged it. In part this is what preseason games are all about. If he hadn’t have played the youngsters rest assured there would have been quite a few people on this blog voicing their derision at him.

    Pardew often picks the wrong team. He always picks a defensive team. A negative team. This is wrong for nufc. He showed a more positive selection so far this season, but you still cant help thinking he will revert to type.

    Having said this, putting words in his mouth, or deliberately twisting what he says just to moan about him, detracts from any valid complaints you have.

    ….seems that 3 things can be learned from today:

    1.nufc need a new cb.
    2.double youngsters won’t work – probably until they’ve more experience at the top level
    3. The first team are in desperate need of gelling together. We’ve yet to see anything like a first team in a friendly yet! Plus we’ve just signed yet another player!

    Does AP realise that we (and Mike) aren’t going to give him more time than till December?

    If he wants to succeed he’ll have to pick the best team from ALL players. Which means starting our best player every game. Simple really.

    Anyway, hope for his sake and ours that AP figures out the game of football in time.
