    How can we talk about the HBA situ and exclaim that Ashley is angry with AP for forcing him out? It’s HIS club right?! Since when did AP wear the trousers in this mighty footballing dynasty of a club?

    Bloody hilarious. I want Pardew out, and yes he is at fault for Benny, but him going on loan to Hull is not the reason he’d be fired, MA will be delighted to get him off the books.

    However, if we continue to struggle to score/win games, then we all chant for Hatem, maybe that’ll go against Pards in the long run?

    A decent start replacing players but once again no quality in depth added. Same old story. A deffo no.

    How can we have had a good window?

    We have replaced SOME of the players that have left over the last two years, we have weakened and already poor defence, and we have shown very little in going forward. Add the inept one to that and it’s looking like a disaster waiting to happen. Hope they prove me wrong but this looks like a season where we will be fighting for premier league survival.

    Yes, all the way up to the last day it was a positive window. Then we were left with 3CBs. Splat. Negative. Bunch of tw@s

    From last article.

    I think 10th is about right. However, I really worry about sacking pardew still. Not because I think he’s good but who Ashley would replace him with.

    We would all love someone like de boer but that will never happen. It will most likely be pulis. His great finish to the season last season has masked the fact that he played the worst football in the league over the last 8 years and the stole fans were desperate to get rid of him.

    Im the same, I have no confidence in his decisions for the club. Some mad decisions to date in personnel.

    The lack of confidence is very much warranted I think.

    Markaccus @5 – I agree – Yes if we had kept Mbiwa or replaced him then it would have been an OK window but No because we didn’t.
    Did you notice Colin was reporting a fight between HBA & Steve Stone only last week?

    I has to be a Yes!?!?

    We have bought some real quality players that have not been over priced. We have got rid of the spoilt brat and an average mid fielder that cannot head the ball.

    We now need to promote from below and give the youngsters a chance, Aarons is a great example!! So lets give Arma, Good, Satko etc a chance!!!

    Yes it would have been great to get a defender in, but we must give Good a chance,

    It would of been a yes if they had of replaced the outgoings with a CB and striker.

    The have weakened the squad with not doing so.

    ED – you have missed Danny Gosling on the list of leavers, plus does Loic Remy and Luk de Jong not deserve a mention as you have included loans?

    That is 7 first teamers out and 7 in (including Perez), all about even really but with the inevitable feeling of being a slightly weaker squad. Same old same old.

    The simple answer is, until we see all of our signings integrated and playing, the jury will remain undecided as to just how good/poor this window was.

    If we’d signed a top class striker and central defender this window imo would be regarded by most not just as a good one, but a great one.

    Given the fact that we haven’t takes the gloss off it somewhat.
    But generally speaking we’ve signed quality known players in De Jong, Janmaat, Cabella and Colback.
    We’ve signed potential in Darlow, Lascalles and Ayoze and we’ve signed Riviere who has proven for Monaco that he’s no lemon, but is being played as a sole striker and he is struggling in that role.

    I fail to see how this could therefore be deemed to be not a good window, not great, but certainly not poor, especially given the crumbs we’ve been given to feed on in the previous 2.

    We just have a complete muppet of a manager who doesn’t realise that our defence is like one of big mike’s jammy donuts, extremely squishy in the centre.
    And believes that when it comes to strikers it’s a case of quantity over quality.

    Voted no for now. Will be happily proved wrong but I doubt I will be.

    Started promisingly but fell flat at the end its like usain bolt looking good for a win then falls on his face 1 metre short of the finish.

    There were bodies needed. Colo is not the defender he was since his problems. We were better with willo and yanga. Colo has been pard’s and ash’s yes man. May be a good captain off the pitch but in a match not vocal enough and guilty of ball watching.

    The little money we had was spent in the wrong places the defence was the glaring weakness, We already had a replacement for Debuchy in Santon. We spent 7million on 2players and then sent them on loan did we really need to buy antoher goalkeeper? that money would have bought Agger someone we desperately needed Ashley Cole or Ben Davies for Lb and wed have been at the min solid at the back some of our defence would struggle for game time in league one cnt win games with a leaky defence take Aston Villa no stand out players but well drilled at the back give notting away which gives them a platform to win games.

    We WERE having a great window. … a month ago. Then progress stopped and at best we’ve stood still overall. Same yawning gaps as a year ago.

    Nine players sounds great but when you consider how many left and the positions we strengthened I have no. Also on the back of the palace performance I am seriously worried. Cabella anonymous, seim de jong was like luuk and riviere although not all his fault looked lost. Sissoko distribution was terrible and gouffran below average. Working your socks off just doesn’t cut it at this level. You need to organised have some ability and hungry to win most of which imo falls at the managements feet. I think pardumb has half a dozen games to save his skin although he should’ve went last season. I’ve already wrote the southampton game off and think hull will give us a torrid time again at home.

    If you take a proper look at sides who consistently do well, the odd season whether due to injuries or changes they’ll concede more than they generally do, but each is based on a solid defence.

    A solid defence allows you to get the scruffy 1-0 away wins, when it’s pissing down for the full 90 mins and passing isn’t what it should be.
    Having that reliable wall in front of a keeper immediately puts the rest of the team on the front foot, without that nagging worry of are we exposed.
    I fully expect Villa and Southampton to finish quite a few points ahead of us, if things stay as they are and P45overdue remains at the club, simply because of their defences.

    Why the hell can’t any manager who comes into Newcastle United build a team around a strong defence, it’s not rocket science!

    Its like the parson’s egg, Ed – good in parts. In general, it is good but we haven’t addressed problems at CB or a serious striker. However, I’m disappointed at the impatience shown already to the likes of de Jong, Riviere and Cabella. Ba and Remy took longer to find the net for the first time and we are playing with a new system and more than half the side are new players. HBA is gone – a pity but no surprise – and we have played quite well so far. That is the key as to whether the manager is doing a job. The players here seem happy, enthusiastic and together. If they weren’t, we’d see it on the pitch. A decent side was put out in the cup game and we are still in it. We were never going to win the league. Give the team a chance to build a side and a system and stop the histrionics.
