Newcastle Offered Man City Forward(s) On Loan

2:29 pm, Monday, August 18th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 373 Comments

Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that Manchester City still have too many players in their squad, and that’s especially true when they have been restricted in the size of their squad for Europe next season, after flaunting the Financial Fair Play rules over the last three years.

Manuel Pellegrini

Manuel Pellegrini – too many players at City

Pellegrini got City off to a good start in the league yesterday with a 2-0 win at St. James’ Park, but not before we frightened the living daylights out of the Champions, as our lads went all out for the equalizer in the second half.

This is what Manuel has said today:

“We maybe have too many players in the squad at this moment, players who need to play.¨ “That is very important, especially for young players.¨

“John Guidetti or maybe Scott Sinclair, they may need to play in a different team.¨ “We will see between now until the end of the transfer window what happens with our squad.¨

“At this moment, though, we have too many players.” ”We have had a lot of problems also with Financial Fair Play with the restriction on the amount of players we can put in our squad.”

One of the problems City have in trying to unload their players is they paid them ridiculously high wages to get them to the Etihad Stadium in the first place, which is one reason they have spent far too much money and gone against the UEFA Financial Fair Play guidelines – and they have been penalized for doing that.

Scott Sinclair – Man City winger

So it’s difficult for other clubs to cough up and pay the inflated wages of the City players they want to unload.

Newcastle were interested in striker John Guidetti a year or so ago – so we suppose he may be a loan option, and John needs to play, because since scoring 20 goals for Feyenoord in 23 appearances in the 2011-2012 season he has played only six games on loan at Stoke City.

John Guidetti – Man City striker

And Alan Pardew knows about 25 year-old Scott Sinclair, who started his career with the Chelsea Youth Academy, and one of his many loan spells was at Charlton Athletic when Alan was the manager there, but Scott only played three games there in 2008, but spent two good seasons at Swansea after leaving Chelsea.

While at Swansea City Scott scored 36 goals in 91 total appearances.

It seems Newcastle need another striker more than a winger, but both Sinclair and Guidetti can score goals – so bringing in one of them on loan for the season would seem to be a reasonable option for Newcastle.

What do you think?

    From what I’ve saw of Gudietti (3ganes)
    I’d take him in a heartbeat.

    Sinclair no thanks seems to be more interested in fame and money than footie

  • 2 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:36 PM

    TS…you need to run that by me again cause that made absolutely no sense.

    We knew last year that a few more games would tricker a clause (if the media is to be believed). We keep him because we need him for the start of the season? Then we don’t use him; sends him to Norwich in January this year. Now he trains with a personal trainer in Argentina?

    Could you explain your reasoning again?

  • 3 Transfer Sage // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:41 PM

    Jesper

    He played 2 games for us last season and was cover if things got desperate, We loaned him out, probably hoping to get rid of him but Norwich sacked houghton so that deal will have been scuppered.

    Not we are letting him train back home, still not sure why we isn’t training with us even if he won’t feature as it will keep him in better shape football wise for a sale….maybe it was the best way we could get him to agree to accept his fate, by going back home.

    I can’t fully understand the reasoning he is home and ben arfa (the supposed trouble maker) is allowed to train with impressionable youth team players.

    It doesn’t make sense but I don’t know the ins and outs of it all, therefore I won’t pretend to, just offering my opinion on it.

  • 4 catchy in norway // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:43 PM

    I see how ed skirted around the cabaye problem on the last thread, there was no mention of the guy going on strike at the beginning of the season, nor the mention of the cheap fee we got for him.

    fact, cabaye was playing for a move that he was promised,
    fact , we paid 4.5 million for a player who should have been a 15 million pound player, so yes we made a profit, but I think we sold him cheap.

    pardew blames the player for a poor start, not his tactics, hmmm there is a new one

  • 5 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:44 PM

    TS…that still don’t make sense, because he has a value last summer and we could have used that money to bring in a replacement.

    We knew we wouldn’t want to be in a situation what would tricker a new contract right?

    That’s the whole reason why he is being cased away I assume? Does this reason make sense to you?

  • 6 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:45 PM

    If Citeh need to save money how about a cheeky loan for Dzecho?

    Citehs 2nd choice but I really rate him, he’d start before Aguero for me.

  • 7 mindshaft // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:45 PM

    Jonas won’t play for toon this season, the management have told him to find another club but so far he’s failed.
    Pointless having someone around the squad who isn’t going to play ( especially if the stories in the press about having to renew his contract on number of games played )
    I think it’s a good move from the club – we’ve basically told him he can move for nowt but needs to find himself a club as no one has come in for him – he may as well train at home rather than in the toon

  • 8 mindshaft // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:47 PM

    The difference with HBA is that he’s been told he needs to be more professional in his attitude ( same as every other club he’s been at ) – think if he could change his attitude Pards would play him, allegedly Cabaye and Tiote were the two main players who refused to pass to him and complained to Pards about him

  • 9 dannitoon // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:48 PM

    Damn got excited thought it was kün or Dzeko. .????

  • 10 Transfer Sage // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:48 PM

    jesper

    I know what you mean, and your way of doing things makes much more sense.

    But again we don’t know if they tried to sell him or not, maybe there were no takes…only norwich came in for him in jan and that was just a loan.

    In reality he is a poor player, has been for a long time, add to that he is getting older, not many will want him.

  • 11 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:54 PM

    TS…I find it hard to believe we could not find a club for him if we did try. I just think it’s time we stop pretending and we see this club for what it really is…

    …I do get a bit disgusted by it sometimes. It’s not the Newcastle I fell in love with back in the early ’90’s.

  • 12 welshgeordie9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:54 PM

    As a swans fan as well as a newcastle fan I would take him, that’s why swans are in the premier league in the first place, he was my favourite player.

  • 13 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:56 PM

    Could the reason HBA is training at the club and Jonas isn’t be down to the fact that Jonas has the dedication to keep in shape? Jonas is training back home and staying fit as he searches for a new club. Could it be that the club don’t have faith in HBA to keep fit enough for a club to buy him. His agent has already said that he is happy to sit out for a year rather than move on, so if we let him head back to France is there any guarantee he would keep fit in case a club does move for him in the next 2 weeks?

    On topic, wouldn’t want either on loan. Sinclair because he has done nowt other than one season at Swansea. Guidetti for the same reason I wouldn’t want Campbell. We have our own youngsters who we can give a chance to rather then progressing another clubs.

  • 14 catchy in norway // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:56 PM

    mindshaft

    what about Obertan. im yet to see him play :)

  • 15 Transfer Sage // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:57 PM

    jesper

    I’m not sure, we certainly can’t find a club for him now. I bet there are plenty who’d take him but he’s on 50k a week, not many will match that and he might not be willing to sign to lose out on a good chunk of pay.

    Also remember how Ashley runs the club, very little planning does into transfers, lots of scouting but we don’t buy/sell when it’s best for us in playing terms, only when it’s best financially.

  • 16 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:57 PM

    To clarify, one season in the Prem with Swansea

  • 17 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 2:58 PM

    Lilongwe…choose to believe what you like mate.

  • 18 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:00 PM

    TS…which begs the question why the club is putting themselves in this predicament!

    …they brought this whole think on them self.

  • 19 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:03 PM

    For Jonas, it is unlikely anyone will match his wages here, but it isn’t unheard of in football for the selling club to pay a wage contribution which takes them back to a similar wage. Surely any reduction in what we pay him would be a bonus, so offer him 20K (or equivalent amount) a week to top up his wages from his new club.

  • 20 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:05 PM

    Jesper,
    Thanks. I will do just that.

  • 21 Transfer Sage // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:08 PM

    Lilongwe

    Very true, depends what the club are hoping for. Maybe try that approach when all else fails in the last week of the window?

    Jesper

    It does, but the club keep doing this with transfers. They don’t seem to learn.

  • 22 Belfast // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Sinclairs career has nose dived from he left Swansea.

    Everybody bangs on about that Guidetti kid. He went on loan to Stoke last season for 6 months and couldn’t get a game.

    Must be good on football manager or something lol

  • 23 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Transfer

    Your right there mate, the club moves when it’s financially right. It’s never when we need the player.

    I reckon Gutirez is in Argentina on bequest of Colocini who’s asked him to keep an eye on his lassie incase another long haired latin lover takes her eye!

    HBA took this piss saying “Gutierez will be playing hide the sausage with your wife”

    Colo obviously didn’t like that complained to Pardew who then packed HBA to the reserves because Pardew then realised he’d missed a trick by not gettin into Colos missus!

    As likely as anything else we’ve heard ;)

  • 24 thejokethatisnufc // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:12 PM

    Any news on Cisse ?

  • 25 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:13 PM

    Sage,
    Yeah, ideally we would not need to. I guess it all depends on who wants him. There can’t be too many clubs out there at a good level that would want him. If he ended up back in Argentina then it is likely we would need to pay most of his wages.

    The other thing that would make a bit of sense is to get Jonas, his representative and the club management round a table and agree to remove the clause, if indeed that is the issue. I doubt he would play much for us, but he could help out when injuries and fatigue strikes.

  • 26 Transfer Sage // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:13 PM

    OP

    And a damn site more entertaining.

    I think I’ve done the HBA debate to death now, so I’ll end on the main point, the club should reveal what the big problem with him really is, at least that way the fans will have more information, they are too vague with everything these days.

  • 27 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:15 PM

    Belfast,
    I’m not sure how good he is on Football Manager, but he looked very good when he was on loan in the Dutch league. Then again, Altidore looked good there too…..

  • 28 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:17 PM

    Transfer

    Spot on, only whispers and rumours come out the club thease days.

    Lilongate

    That would be far too sensible, you do realise its Ashley’s NUFC were talking about ;)

  • 29 Graeme // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:17 PM

    Transfer @ 26 – now wouldn’t that be a novel idea. There is always a first time I guess!!!

  • 30 Belfast // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:20 PM

    I know he did Lilongwe. That’s why I decided to keep an eye on him when he went to Stoke. He done ferk all there like.

    The dutch league is pretty poor to be honest.

  • 31 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:20 PM

    Optimistic,
    I thought I’d try and take a leaf out of your book and be optimistic! Sadly, I fear that I may have to leave reality for it to be a possibility!

  • 32 Laurent Robert 32 // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:22 PM

    Transfer, Pardew and the club’s daily lies are a world away from Kevin asking fans to trust him when we sold Andy Cole. Ferdinand then Shearer followed on.

    That’s one reason I hate Pardew. The lies. The others are being a blagger as a manager and his vile and egotistical personality.

  • 33 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:24 PM

    Belfast,
    Yeah, the Dutch league makes average centre forwards look outstanding. Wijnhard, Kezman, Roy, Van Hooijdonk, Boogers etc the list goes on of players to come from the Dutch league and fail to replicate their form when hitting the onion bag.

  • 34 israeli_fan // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:28 PM

    Greame from last post-

    you can hate ashley as much as you want, but you cant deny that we have the best value for money in the market.

    just compare our deals with other PL clubs- borini for 14m, shaw for 30m, long for 12m etc etc etc.

    even though i dont really care about the finances of the club as i supporting the team only on the field, i still prefer the club to operate like it does right now instead be like chelsea, city united or tottenham.

    the best model for me is arsenal.
    and if we finally buy that top CB and a striker (and maybe a new manager as well)- we might return to our glory days

  • 35 israeli_fan // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM

    LG you are right, but what about van Nistelrooy, Bergkamp, Bony?

    for every Henry you have 5 Guivarch… its not about the nationality

  • 36 israeli_fan // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:33 PM

    and a certain Suarez..

  • 37 Belfast // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:37 PM

    Yeah it’s hit a miss really. There’s been a few good uns and a right few awful ones. Samaras and Alfonso Alves spring to mind.

  • 38 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:37 PM

    Israeli,
    I never mentioned nationality, merely the league they played in. Bergkamp had a torrid time when he first left Holland. I agree some do replicate their form, but far more fail to match the success they had in the Dutch league.

  • 39 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:37 PM

    I mainly saw Gudietti in the Dutch league as a SMB pal of mine was convinced he was joining them.

    When I watched him he had good movement and was a really good finisher.

    The Dutch league isn’t the best but the do have some jems, everyone expects DeJong to be a hit.

    I only saw him play 20mins for Stoke and because their here nor there and are in a bit of a playing style reform it would be a bit harsh to judge him.

    I’d take him on a loan with a view to buy as I think that’s all the club would be willing to do. I don’t see us buying a 20 goal yr CF or a commanding CB.

    If we get anyone else it’ll be a fringe player from a big club on loan with a view to buy. And I’d be surprised if we even did that.

  • 40 Lilongwe Geordie // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:39 PM

    Belfast,
    Yeah, can’t believe I forgot Alves!! I’d always be wary signing a goalscorer based on what they did in the Dutch league. There are plenty that have gone to other European leagues and struggled as well.

  • 41 Ketsbaia9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:45 PM

    We need to go in for Benteke and Grenier and get Alderweireld on loan.

  • 42 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:47 PM

    Kets

    I really hope we sign Toby even if it’s just to stop you mentioning him ;) hahaha

  • 43 Graeme // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    Isreali fan – thats one leap of judgement, where did I say I hate Ashley?
    I dont agree with a lot of things he does, but hate is a bit much. Yes, we have a very good scouting network; they have undoubtedly found candidates for the CB and CF we so badly need – but where are they?

    Its most certainly NOT because of lack of funds, we are well into profit, having spent slightly more than we raised by selling Cabaye and Deduchy – I have no problem with that at all.

    We undoubtedly have funds available, if they wanted to bring in those 2 players. It cant be denied that we need them – so where are they?

  • 44 Munster Mag // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    Welshgeordie, we all owe you a pint. If Swansea hadnt beaten Wigan at the end of the season before last, we would have gone down. Mind u Catchy and Rotunda wud have been happy, as Pardew wud have been sacked – maybe!

  • 45 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    I thought Pardew just said there’s no room in the squad for another body?

    I wouldn’t see the point of signing anyone on loan anyhow.

    Why do the work of the parent club to improve a player and allow them some experience?

    Anyone good enough to sign for us now will be the type of player we can’t sign permanently at the end of it.

    Forget it; permanemt signings or nothing.

    If it’s loan deals they’re offering we may as well use our fringe players. Get Ayoze some game time.

    Cisse will be back in a couple of weeks too and i’m hoping we can play a formation which suits his style.

    It would be my guess that if he were to play we would start as a 4-3-3 with Riviere doing the hold up work like Ba used to and either Cabella or De Jong plays alongside.

  • 48 Average_Contents // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:53 PM

    Chucky’s in the under 21 squad for the game against Bolton

  • 49 Graeme // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    Vagabond – if / when Cisse returns, he will undoubtedly find a far more creative team than the last time he played.

    We now have several new skillful players who should open up the doors for him to score. If he came back in and had a season like his first, it would make MA’s gamble look like a shrewd move. If it doesn’t happen, we could have a serious problem!!

  • 50 swemag // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:55 PM

    Both these players would add depth but not a whole lot of additional quality.

    If it was to buy them right out, as a Swede I would love to see Guidetti. He had a tough time last year with an illness, but this guy has quality and knows where the goal is. He is coming to the right age.

  • 51 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:55 PM

    Kets

    It’s easy to see he’s head and shoulders above anything we have but I just don’t see it mate.

    I do think we’re desperate for a good commanding CB but we’ll make do until we get wages off the books because it’s more important to ballance the books than ballance the squad.

  • 52 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    @Graeme

    You’re right mate. It’s a gamble RE Cisse in that we are still willing to give him a chance.

    At least we will know this time though if he’s lost his mojo for ever of if it really was down to the way we played.

    With the flair and creativity the players should provide, plus the strength and pace of Riviere then technically we are as close to the attacking prowess of the team which played with Cisse when he was on fire.

    He’s got to be able to at least regain some form. I’m not asking him to hit 25 yard thunderbolt swervers every game but i would expect 1 notch in 3, or thereabouts.

  • 53 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    If the rumour of staylor to qpr is true, it frees up a spot for a new cb (and gets rid of our worst one). We will still have 9 HG players to chose from, so we could accomodate toby A, but i seriously doubt he would come here.

  • 54 Ketsbaia9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    Vagabond – Oh, you mean repeats of the Chelski goal are not going to be 2 a month then?? Shame lol.

    Must admit, that strike makes me laugh everytime I see it – its simply not possible to beat their Keeper from that angle, swerving it the wrong way – simply unbelievable lol

    I knocked 2 pints on my pal when that shot went in :)

    Great goal loved it nearly as much as Ginolas keepie ups before volleying it in to the net against Feren what ever there called I can’t spell it.

    But my fave goal and it’s a long long time ago was Beardsleys losing the ball sliding in to win it back then in one movement smash it past the keeper. I beleive it was KKs last game, but it was a long time ago and I can’t be 100%

    Saying that I’ve got a few fave goals ;)

  • 61 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:11 PM

    shearer against everton 88th minutes… and 2 minutes later bellamy scored and cried near the corner flag (he sent off 4 days before the game against inter if i remember correctly). we won 2-1.

  • 65 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:19 PM

    @optimistic prime

    I’ll forever remember the date of Howay 5-0
    (Newcastle 5 – 0 Manchester United)

    October 20th 1996 – My 16th birthday.

    Best. Present. Ever.

  • 66 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:20 PM

    OP

    Shearers volley v Everton will always be up there.

    I have a Beardsley memorable goal too. He got the ball trapped in his feet inside the box, and had one player to beat. He did his little shimmy, which also rebounded the ball forward (somehow…guy was a genius) and slammed the ball home. Cant remember who we played. But it was brilliant.

  • 67 israeli_fan // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    shearer goal against aston vila.. i think we won that one 4-0…

    jenas against man united
    robert 2 goals against spurs in 1 game

    but the best moment was against feynoord when bellamy scored in stoppage time and SBR stood on the lines with his arms up.. amazing

  • 68 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:23 PM

    For games, not many will go past the 5-0… which also has a perenial favorite goal in it. Albert lobbing schmegghead. Third replay from behind the goal. Schmegg looks up, then behind him, then down at the ground. Class

  • 69 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:24 PM

    One of my favourites was always the game we came back to beat Leicester 4-3

    We were 2-0 down then 3-1 down i believe.

    Shearer hits a howitzer of a free kick almost smashes Casey keller’s head off and its 3-2

    Soon after he squeezes a shot through the defenders’ legs and its 3-3

    Injury time and Bobby Lee squares it across the box for Shearer to tap home 4-3

    AWESOME SAUCE

  • 70 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:26 PM

    Beardsley’s goal against Palace in the 94th minute…

    Gets the ball back from Watson, takes it forward, throws the shuffle, moves it onto his left and smashes a shot into the corner of the net from 20 yards.

    Toon win 0-1

    I remember Roberts first game against Man utd he out the ball down around 35 40 yds out and the commentator (Andy Gray I think) said what’s he doing he’ll never score from there!

    BOOM back of the net :)

  • 72 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:27 PM

    i seem remember us doing a similar thing to leeds. I am sure we were 1 up, but ended up 2-1 down, and all i can remember was nicking it 3-2, i was working, and listening on the radio. Pretty sure Nobby S got the winner, too.

  • 73 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:28 PM

    I remember Robert scoring a free kick from about 45 yards.

    It was about 2 yards past the centre circle in the opposition half against Southampton.

    He takes a massive run up, hits it, loads of movement and flies past the keeper.

    Incredible.

    would anyone take Eduardo Vargas from napoli doesn’t have the best scoring record but is very quick and could be a handful against defenses and has a good record for Chile with 15 goals in 32 apps would

  • 76 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:32 PM

    Robert opened the scoring when we beat man u 4-3 too, with another thunderbolt fk. That was a hell of a game too, made better when keane got TWO red cards for first pushing shearer, and secondly flapping his hands at him when shearer laughed at his first one. The big tw@ :D

  • 77 Vagabond of the Western World // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:32 PM

    @Markaccus

    Was 4-3 i think mate. Class game.

    Nobby got the winner in injury time aye, ran onto it, held off the defender and slotted it past the keeper.

    Incredible game.

    I know it was around Christmas time…

  • 78 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:34 PM

    Not for us but one of the best goals I’ve seen was Bergkamp for holland vs Argentina.

    Ball from around the halfway line with one touch he plucked it out the air and sent defender wrong way then curled into top corner with his left peg.

    Beautiful goal by probably the only player able to score it!
    His little dink around Dabizas against us wasn’t to shabby either.

  • 79 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 4:35 PM

    Graeme, it seems that Ashley feels we have enough centre halves, and that we have to ship one out before we get one in. Technically he’s corrcet. We have Colo, Williamson, Mbiwa and Taylor . 4 centre halves is enough. Its a pity none of them are particularly good though!

    Beating Barcelona at home with a Tino Hat Trick 3-2

  • 93 Markaccus // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:07 PM

  • 97 optimistic prime // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:15 PM

    Dragging the depths of my memory here, in the old 1st division last game of the season we had to win or be relegated to 2nd division.

    Beleive it was Leicster we scored think it was David Kelly then one of their defenders equalised and with about 5mins left the same defender scored a weird OG to put us 2 1 up and safe.

    Was only 16 and I still haven’t celebrated a OG like that since.

    Forgive my memory if any of that’s wrong it’s nearly 25yr ago lol

  • 98 GeordieTwo // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    Not a bad display against a very good team. They are miles beyond us. Wor beloved Mike seemed to be having a jolly time of it. Points won’t be easily come by. Riviere looks as if he might come good. Our 1 man attack in the first half was useless. Pellegrini must have been delighted. A bit more of an attack from us in the second half although Obertan was hopeless. If that was putting him in the shop window it didn’t work. Cabella looks good on the ball and Colback had a very decent game.

  • 99 GeordieTwo // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:18 PM

    It was child’s play for the Man City defense yesterday. They are powerful, fast and composed. We stood no real chance of beating them despite what Pardew says. I think Mr. Pards lives in cloud cuckoo land.

  • 100 GeordieTwo // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    We should have given them a good fonging but we weren’t up to it. Big Mike is so excited about all the dosh he’s going to make by having a mediocre win-nothing club with young players he can sell off for big profits.

    Some very funny bits from ketsy again. Robert was the best player we ever had apparently. Hmmmm. What did Robert ever win with the club? I seem to remember some other players who would be considered better players. Keegan was world class in his time, Pedro, Shearer, Milburn, all much better all round players than Robert. I might even be able to come up with at least half a dozen more in a few seconds! :)

  • 106 Geremi's Prosthetic Leg Fund // Aug 18, 2014 at 5:34 PM

    “If I’m honest I didn’t like the look of the pitch. Did it seem rectangular to you lot? I thought it had a bit of a curve to it. And there mascot was a bit cheeky to me. The sun was in my eyes as well. I thought I saw Ba out there playing for us? I might be wrong there. We should have beaten them. It’s disappointing but we’ve got to move on. I’m looking forward to fielding a really weak side against Gillingham and getting that competition out of the way quickly.”

No, really I do. I nearly won one as a manager once you know. Still, I’ve got to get on with it. Mike expects some results.”

    i bet most of those with an opinion on him calling him a poor player havent even seen him play or looked at his record !

    so..whats so bad about gudetti then ? his heading ? his shooting ? movement ? power of shots /heading ??? hehe oh ye forgot he played in the dutch league he must be rubbish lol.

    imo i’d take him in a heartbeat no second thought about it and tbh i’d take sinclair also as i’ve always thought he was underated he’s fast/skillfull/good at crossing has a fair amount of assists and scores goals but ye he doesnt defend much which he will prob have to adjust somewhat in our team.

    Canadian back bacon is the only way to go jesper mate. Much less fat. No bourbon for me please. I like the odd drink of rye whiskey (I asked for it once in Blackpool and they had no idea what I was talking about). Mainly wine and scotch for me though mate.

  • 127 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 18, 2014 at 6:13 PM

  • 129 GeordieTwo // Aug 18, 2014 at 6:15 PM

    WELL-WELL-WELL – Mr pardew , on the opening game of a new season , manages to break another UNWANTED RECORD , to add to his ever growing list of embarrassing records . For the first time on record , since the data began in 2006 , he is the first manager to manage a team that didn’t have a single shot on target in 90 mins and lose the game . Wow another pardew plunder . Hahaha. Also . Well said David ginola on saying it as it is at NUFC . Top man .

  • 181 bladeuser // Aug 18, 2014 at 7:52 PM

    Phil neville was not as good as gary as a player, and he has carried that into his tv career.

    I understand the point Welsh was making aboit the phlegmy scouse buscuit Carragher…. he knows nothing about football apart from liverpool during the time he was playing. Gary neville is a good example to compare, he knows the game and pays attention to much more than just Man u and England players. I actually think he is the best pundit on sky at the moment

  • 213 bladeuser // Aug 18, 2014 at 8:35 PM

    Yes the solution is to spend the tv money not hoard it every year for when u do sell up if u r satisfied to fight for 10th every year then thats up to u and u dont have to spend £100 mil anothet £20 mil on a top striker and c half would put us on a par to go for sixth and europe

    Blade user, to guarantee top 6 we would have to outspend Tottenham. Let’s be honest, for top 6 we need a top striker, a midfield playmaker to replace Cabaye and probably two centre halves, that’s about 50 million there….

    It just shows what happens when your new signings hit the ground running

    Costa has a goal
    Fibre glass has an assist.

    Teams like nufc cant compete with that class of player. Instantly playing well in a new league (granted fiber glass has been here before, but several years in spain might have taken a toll on a lesser player). Frightening

    who said spurs will finish sixth they could finish 3rd 6th or 10th and u dont have to out spend them to finish above them spurs spent over £100 mil and did not even get into the champions league 20 mill would get u a top striker and c half and dopy pardue could gave kept our young signing from forest it does not matter how old he is stones of everton is a perfect example of a young player who is now in there 1st team

  • 241 jazzyp // Aug 18, 2014 at 8:54 PM

    Blade user, absolutely true, they could finish 3rd to 10th, but you have to admit if you can sign a Diego Costa type player at will odds are you will finish higher in the table, granted nothings guaranteed. Pardew has done ok, not brilliant, but all things considered. Real test will be this season that he has finally got some backing, I think he will do well, time will tell…

    Newcastle must be paying over 200 000 quid a week in wages for players they don’t want. That must be driving Ashley nuts, and surely is(will) having a big impact on the way we do our business from now on in. It’s actually amazing we’ve signed the nine considering the deadwood we seem to be carrying and the owner we have. Benny saga isn’t going to end well either I imagine. Can see that costing the club a whole lot more by the end. He won’t go quietly. Pity the next club that employs him, unless they’re just happy to basically have a strategy of pass the ball to Benny as quick as you can, which I suspect is what he wants, but which isn’t gonna work all that well for a number of reasons, primary among them the eventual resentment of teammates toward player and manager. Happened at Ajax with Suarez who is a shitload better player.

    hey mate, Apart from the 4hr traffic jam on the A1 at scotch corner……Was a cracking day.
    The minutes silence was impeccably held and quite emotional if I am honest with ya.
    being pitch side I didn’t realise how small Cabella was. Sissoko could be an immense player if only he had more confidence in himself.
    The biggest point I can make between the two sides is Composure.
    On the ball Man city were so relaxed and seemed to have all the time in the world, whereas you could see our lads looked nervous and sometimes panicked when on the ball.

    I often found myself comparing players throughout the match.
    Yaya must be worth 50-60 mill and we have Colback on a free.
    Company must be worth 40-50 mill and we have Willo whos worth 2 mill.
    Da silva 30-40 mill….We have Anita at 5 mill.
    Aguero and Navas on the bench at a combined 80-90 mill and we have Obershocker and Perez.
    the gulf in class and money between the 2 sides is immense, yet I thought as many around me did that we held our own

    I’m not trying to have an argument with anyone, just pointed out a fact…at home we should be taking risks….We put citeh under pressure in the 2nd half but we could have done more in the 1st half.

    I was told we played the champions what do you expect, well burnley tonight are having a go which is impressive. We gave a 45min attempt to snatch a draw

  • 278 Ketsbaia9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:34 PM

    I think in order to achieve a top 4 finish, we need idealy 2 centre backs (Alderweireld + Zouma on loan), 1 attacking midfielder (Grenier) and a striker (Benteke, Doumbia, Aubameyang).

    We had a good go at city in the second half, especially with so many young players playing, it gave us that extra bit of flair, and city struggled with it. The defending wasn’t very good all through the match, Janmaat didn’t track the runners and Willo and Collo got dominated by Dzeko. But, it’s the champions, we gave it our best effort pardew didn’t do much wrong, their squad is light years ahead of ours in terms of quality. Time to move on to the next game.

    I very much think that if we had had more of a prolific forward on the pitch, As in a Remy or a Ba then things could have looked a whole lot different.
    Fans have to remember we were playing the Premier league champs and a team that will be there or there abouts come the end of the season. And we created enough chances throughout the game to win it

  • 301 stuart no9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:51 PM

  • 302 JamesToon // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:52 PM

    Stuart so your saying that coz Perez or Sissoko or whoever can’t hit a shot on target in their first match, then they never will be able to and the manager should be blamed for buying them?

  • 303 Mickalonius // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:52 PM

    Burnley are brilliant, best manager, giving it a real go, probably will get beaten 4-1 but at least they have shots on target, which, let’s face it, is the measure of a successful football team. Pardew in, out, shake it all about. Good night and thank you.

  • 304 jimiley // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:53 PM

    Winning against Chelsea and Man City is like Hartlepool beating us. We buy 3 Million players and City buy 30 M players. Hartlepool buy 3 thousand pound players to our 3 million players. Upsets are possible but that is all we can do. We will win nothing. We may be in the same league as Chelsea but its an illusion really.

  • 305 Average_Contents // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:53 PM

    FACUNDO Ferreyra netted twice for Newcastle United’s Under-21s in a 3-3 draw against Bolton Wanderers tonight.

    Sammy Ameobi was also on target for Peter Beardsley’s side in a goal-laden first half at Leyland.

    All six goals in the Under-21 Premier League game, staged at the headquarters of Lancashire’s Football Association, came in the first 45 minutes.

    Ferreyra, signed on a season-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, was not involved in yesterday’s first-team opener against Manchester City at St James’s Park.

    But the 23-year-old could now come into contention for Saturday’s game against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

    NEWCASTLE UNITED: Alnwick, Barlaser, Ferguson, Olley, Williams, Satka, Roberts, Bigirimana, Ferreyra, Armstrong, Ameobi.

    lots of positives for me and I cant really say pards got anything wrong
    when it all comes together up front we will score goals

  • 307 catchy in norway // Aug 18, 2014 at 9:53 PM

    I think we will lose the game,,

    I think to many on here are deluded , giving stupid reasons as to why we lost yesterday, and are not being realistic

    I get that people live in hope , I get that we have a good squad, but pardew is going to treat the game like the game yesterday , try and keep it tight for 70 mins then if we are in the game still , he will allow us to attack,

    this is his style

    think this time next week we are routed to the bottom of the table

    excuse will be , SDJ is not fit , we will see a different team when he is in it,

    I just don’t get why he hypes players up to make it sound like we can not live without them

    thats your logic, so why you giving pardew the grief?

    I think Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City are better than us, but I’m not sure about the rest. Liverpool, Spurs, Everton and Man Utd need to strengthen. It all depends on what happens at the end of the window. At the moment, our squad is probably the 6th best in the league.

  • 318 stuart no9 // Aug 18, 2014 at 10:01 PM

  • 319 catchy in norway // Aug 18, 2014 at 10:01 PM

    obertan yes

    but the others no, we think we have a good squad , in fact I think we have a better squad than most if you pro pardew lot , we think pardew holds them back,
    we play to defensive under pardew , not on the front foot as pardew tells you,

    set them free

  • 320 jimiley // Aug 18, 2014 at 10:01 PM

    We need a CF and Cf back to make us a decent team. Mid table. Will that happen? No. There is no ambition to move forward. These players will only come in in January if we are struggling.
    Pards has now lost 8 out of the last 9. An all time record. Any other manager would be long gone. But this crappy club keeps faith in him. WHY??????

  • 321 Our Toon // Aug 18, 2014 at 10:02 PM

  • 322 DJM TOON // Aug 18, 2014 at 10:02 PM

    catchy, i see it where your coming from, really i do… pardew plays to contain and then nick the game.

    he would rather defend a lead than extend it

    he plays in fear of any opponent almost

    i will also accept that that will also be passed down to the players… to an extent

    its a negative game plan and i dont like it

    but with all that said, he wants to win, everyone in the world, whatever they do, wants to be succesful.

    we might not agree with his style, but he’s not wrong when he says we’ve bought some nice attack minded players that can only be a positive

    what we really need, and yesterday showed it, we need a proven striker and a CB.

    personally i dont think we’ll get anymore so this is our lot

    saying all that drivel, i still think we’ll win next week!

    Don’t get me wrong mate I thought we gave a good account of ourselves but in the final 3rd we were dreadful. I’m trying to be positive but I judge what I see, we very rarely got more than 1 person in the box which is really disturbing. Anyway it’s done let’s move onto villa….won’t be an easy game that, HBA won that game for us last year with his goal and assist….let’s hope SDJ is back. Villa will have quick forwards so that’s a scary prospect

    Liverhampton…A know a couple of scouse lads and they hate it when I refer to them as that….I told them it was odd to have a derby game as the 1st match of the season.

    Not sure what to make of Ashley increasing his shares at Rangers, people saying he’s getting ready to sell us and buy them when they get back into the SPL. Seen a few rangers fans saying they would welcome him with open arms and that we are “ungrateful” towards him lol. I think it would make a lot of sense for ashley to move to somewhere like rangers, not a very competitive league, and wouldn’t require that much of an investment in the team to keep up a title challenge and CL.

    I said earlier that we lacked that composure on the ball in the final third and seemed to panic once we had got into an attacking position.
    Personally I thought we created a lot as did Pellegrini in his comment regarding how his defence stood firm when under pressure. Hopefully mate Sdj will add a bit more spark and link up play at the top of the field as it is still an obvious part of the field that needs to be addressed .

    the fact is without putting a too finer point on it—-, too cut a long story short, — to get straight to point,—-not to beat around the bush. —- to get to the nitty gritty, Pardew is manager—-he is responsible and accountable for what happens on that pitch in those 90 mins . disagree ????ask any manager at any organisation . the buck stops with him.

    Once more unto the breach, dear Geordies, once more;
    Or close the wall up with our glorious dead!
    In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man,
    As modest stillness and humility;
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger:
    Stiffen the sinews, conjure up the blood,
    Disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage:
    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
    Let it pry through the portage of the head,
    Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it
    As fearfully as doth a galled rock
    O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
    Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
    Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide;
    Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
    To his full height. On, on, you noblest Geordies,
    Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
    Fathers that, like so many Geordies,
    Have in these parts from morn till even fought,
    And sheathed their swords for lack of argument.
    Dishonour not your mothers: now attest,
    That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.
    Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
    And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
    Whose limbs were made in Newcastle, show us here
    The mettle of your pasture: let us swear
    That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
    For there is none of you so mean and base,
    That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
    I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
    Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
    Follow your spirit; and upon this charge,
    Cry ‘Howay for Pardew! Newcastle! and Fat Mike!’

  • 371 Sav // Aug 19, 2014 at 12:25 AM

    There should be no loaning of players to clubs in the same league. Ridiculous. There should also be a limit to the number of professional players a club may sign. If we buy 2 lads and loan them back to Forest, they should still count against our limit of permitted official players. With a cap on players a club can own, more good players will become available to rival clubs, improving the competition.
