    Can we do British not American on this blog? “Defence” rather than “defense”.

    Mister tuff

    Look at the 1st goal again, toure plays a ball over the top which Dzeko runs onto, Williamson is ahead of play and Colo is following the run of Dzeko. Watch it again mate, the let me know what specs you need and I’ll get em for you

    colback- the fact he has came from our biggest rivals would already mean he had more pressure but from the minute the game kicked off he proved to us all he was coming to play for the club he loved and proved us wrong because he worked 100%.

    in the order i would say
    colback
    gouffran
    willo
    sissoko
    cabbella
    jaanet
    rivere
    anita
    dummett
    colo

    krul well didn’t have much to do but was great

    nice to see a lot of optomism on the blog tonight , however , a few home truths are required. First , this was a typical pardew performence, a team wont win by only pl,aying 45 mins, just let me say . not for 1 minute do i blame the players, never have done, the players put in 100% sadly let down by their manager. You are not going to win a game if you fear the opposition. Pardews fear , like always , rubs off onto the players. firts half we were nervous , taking shots from 40 yds ( whats all that about) wanting rid , and making errors due to the fear pardew instilled before the game,by the way, thats why we have lost , or not won the last 10 games i think it isand all while pards has been in charge- or near enough..
    Today was – sunday league v prem — men v boys, stevenage v real madrid, whatever you want to call it. we done well, – to contain them, to stop them scoring a hatful, is that really that good, dont forget , both teams are in the same league.
    Remember last season when we got twonked 4-0? the excuse at the time was ‘ yeah but we were playing man city.’ i also remember no other club in the league gave them such an easy ride in the league after that , hence the reason why they were so fortunate to win it last year, so please , spare me the ‘ yeah but it was man city ‘ cry, thats an excuse – not a reason. i didnt hear the ‘ yeah but we were playing READING or yeah we were playing CARDIFF-HULL-SWANSEA.

    Pardew hasnt learnt anytrhing- in fact he says in a way hes pleased we got beat , on SS1 WITH A SMILE, regardless of the meaning behind it , no one says they are pleased they got beat , regardless in which content it was intended.

    I didn6t know Hart was playing untill the 60th minute, even then – he never had to make 1 single stop in all the game , not 1 – wow. couple that with the fact they could keep their best world class striker on the bench , it wasnt that important, and by the way they wernt brilliant- but good enough to get the points , there will be a lot tougher games ahead for them , just like last season.

    My thoughts havnt change , 5th to 8th bottom if we have a good season, unless ashley finally does wake up and sack this cretin who coulnt manage a wa -k

    I think Anita will make way for Tiote, but I’m not sure about SDJ, logically it has to be Gouffran but that means playing Riverie as a lone striker all season, I think that’s too much of an ask.

    @Toonacious T Dude I mentioned Villa and Palace because they are our next 2 opponents. But you were too eager to jump into an argument so you naturally overlooked it. Makes me mad really..

    This has to be our team for the villa game:

    Krul
    Janmaat M’Biwa Coloccini Haidara
    Tiote Colback
    Cabella de Jong Gouffran
    Riviere

    stuart you were negative before a ball had been kicked and throughout the game

    we were playing against a team who is worth more than our club!!!

    the champions!!
    and without tiote, de jong, santon,cisse and 4 players that started playing there 1st game for us

    and we certainly deserved at least a draw!

    As with all the new signings it will take time to settle, which will buy Pardy another season at least.

    Us and Southampton today were out done by that bit of quality which separate our teams from the top 4, albeit City are a much stronger side than Liverpool :D.

    I’ll say again, we have a new look side with a number missing larger parts of pre-season due to the World Cup against the same City side as last year and regardless of Aguero playing, they still had top strikers playing!

    Agree on the whole Pardew negative approach to games but, that a side the PLAYERS looked good today and i’m not too worried as I think our performances will get better.

    Just back from the match. Poor performance 1st half. Colback played ok but certainly not mom. Rivière up front looked useless. Williamson was crap. We’ve spent 35 million on players but not much class. We need a decent striker and replace Williamson. Can’t see this season being any better than last season.

    Before you get your optical kit out, tell me how is Colo tracking the run of Dzeko when he is not even the closest NUFC shirt to him? Did you mean to say he “tried” to track him but lost out?

    Jail

    Riviere was left isolated far too long and we gave him no service. Of course Percy will take pride from staying in the game right to the end. I’d rather get beat having a go than playing it safe.

    What’s the idea of having all 11 players back defending a corner? It just invites the opposition on and helps them press home their advantage.

    i don’t care what anybody says but this squad we have got now can match anybody out side the top four and those teams.

    Man City
    Chelsea
    Arsenal
    Man utd or Liverpool

    Stuart, presumably your post is a wind up or do you just not want us to do well that much?

    You have just claimed it was Pardew’s fault Riviere shot from 40 yards? Presumably also his fault that Perez’ shot took a deflection and that Sissoko skied it? Ridiculous

    This was a decent performance against the best team in the league. If we play like that all year we will be top 8. Cabella had a good game and once de jong is in the team he should get a bit more space. Tiote in next to colback will also make a big difference. If you cant be positive after that then you dont want to be positive.

    Sissoko on a bench next match !! Poorest man on a pitch ! de Jong with Coleback and Tiote should be OK. Cabella and Gouffi or Aarons better on left side or… play with two on front – Manu & Perez.

    Baaa baaa sheeps say :dont be negative, support the team baaaa. Fcking wnkers who dont know soccer even if he was slamming his dck in their faces. The only player who could have score and done damage today is HBA. Pardew is a fcking disgrace.

    Though it couldn’t of been any worse, next few games will show what Pardew and the team are all about this season.

    Also we played counter attack against City and in the first half had a few decent openings (many more in second half). If you want to go all out attack against city you have no chance of winning they will rip you to shreds. Chelsea played them on the counter rather than attacking them and look at their squad.

    colback dejong and rivere are going to make things quite interesting really.

    if rivere can’t manage playing as a lone striker then we might have to revert back to the basic 4-4-2 or bring in a decent striker.

    when you look at how well colback played today it would be a disappointing thing to see him get dropped, so the problem we have here is tiote and sissoko because if people don’t accept sissoko going out wide then it might be better to drop tiote. If that isn’t accepted then it could result in us having to drop de jong and have cabbella and gouffran out wide with rivere in the middle.

    the best formation could be 4-1-3-2

    ___________krul
    jaanet__colo/mbiwa_willo_dum/had
    _____________tiote
    sissoko_______colback_____cabbella
    __________rivere____dejong

    or 4-2-3-1
    ___________krul
    jaanet__colo/mbiwa_willo_dum/had
    _______tiote___colback
    sissoko_______dejong_____cabbella
    ___________rivere

    4-3-3 looks the hardest to set up if dejong is going to start

    ___________krul
    jaanet__colo/mbiwa_willo_dum/had
    ____sissoko___tiote___colback
    cabbella_____rivere/dejong__dejong/gouffran

    basically either dejong would have to play as the main striker or be put out wide, he seems to want a number 10 so 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-3-2 seems best for both SDJ and rivere

    Lesh,
    If you’re about, I disagreed with Shola getting boo’d but he was one of our own, Obertan should hang his head in shame everytime he leaves that pitch, and as the boo’s were apparently audible all around the stadium then I think a few people think the same thing.
