Pardew On The Brink After Embarrassing Magpies Display


This is maybe the worst thing that could have happened today for Alan Pardew – as Newcastle turned in what was an embarrassing performance at Southampton,  and we were again hammered 4-0 for the second season in a row.

Alan Pardew – moves closer to the sack with this performance

And owner Mike Ashley was at the game – and the performance of Newcastle today has to be one of the most insipid and shambolic performances for a long long time.

It was too bad to be true.

But the recruitment team also has to shoulder some of the blame, as our defense showed once again it is not up to snuff for the Premier League and some of the defending seen today was simply atrocious, and it’s not like we haven’t known the defense has been a  weakness at Newcastle for at least two years..

Think of what it would have been like today if had been playing say a Chelsea side today – although to be fair – the Saints looked excellent – especially after losing their best players in the summer.

Mike Ashley has a decision to make – and that’s whether to keep Pardew at the club for the home game against Hull City next Saturday – a fixture we lost 3-2 last season.

The good thing is that the very last thing Ashley wants is for Newcastle United to be relegated – and miss out on all that Premier League money – so he will not let this go on for too long – but he could give Pardew one more game next Saturday against Hull.

If we were to hazard a guess we would say Alan will get a chance to manage the side next Saturday – but you never know – Ashley can be ruthless when he needs to be.

Lets hope this is just too bad  a performance to ever be repeated again this season. 🙁

At some point the fans have to get solidly behind the team – but that’s hard to do when the fans seem to have given up on Alan Pardew.

The fact is that Alan Pardew has lost a lot of credibility this year alone – after what happened in the second half of last season – and we lost seven of our last eight league games before this season began.

So it’s not as if Alan is starting this season with a clean slate.

If Ashley is to sack Alan Pardew it would be after an insipid display like this one – and if it does happen it will probably be on Monday.

Today’s performance was simply a disgrace to Newcastle United Football club, and we want to hear an apology from both the manager and the players – especially to the traveling 2550 fans.

We also hope that Graham Carr is busy scouting players we can bring in during January to help strengthen the squad.

The very last thing we want this season is to be fighting relegation.

    50 years home and away eh? Well, since you have not given a good reason as to why you called Geordies thick, i will assume it is because you live in London, have relinquished your regional identity, and are basically a bitter old git looking for someone to moan at because you cant get at ashley.

    The mans simply pathetic, he asks for time for players to gel and look at how many players Southampton had today.

    For his own sake, he needs to go and after today he can take that idiot Carver with him

    @JackButler: Don’t forget the new manager, too. Not only does he have to get a lot of new players up to speed, he has to endear himself to the old guard AND the backroom staff.

    HBA can’t play against us i thought?

    When this sad, sad excuse for a man– let alone the manager of our once great club– is removed, I hope to god there is some legal way for us to bring HBA back. Like him or loathe him, he might be our last great hope, because it sure as hell won’t be sammy f****** ameobi. and where the **** was abeid today?

    the only thing great about this club any longer is us. if pardew isn’t sacked by Monday then we need to be those great fans and get the both of them out of here.

    Ugh, Carver being Pardew’s dutiful little attack dog. What an outdated, lowbrow knuckledragger he is.

    Made his bed and he can lie it – piss off with his chums when Pardew is sacked. Can take Saylor with them as well, he’s in the same mould as Carver, too many hangers on due to birthplace.

    Pards blames the fans and expects us to go:

    “ah Soz Pards, we didn’t realise. We’ll be more quiet for hull”

    Is he deranged? He truly baffles me. He’s just ensured that the atmosphere is truly awful next week, if he’s still here. Unless it was a parting shot?

    I said to fellow fans to get of the teams back especially Pardew and give him the first five games as he has no excuses with the players he has. Well that has now stopped and he just does not have the football brain to outsmart any managers in the prem. Once again he goes out with a negative team set up and with one up striker up front having no chance against four defenders, he has tried this tactic now for to long and I honestly thought today he would try two upfront, as soon as I turn the game on and saw the set up I thought great, 90 minutes of Newcastle getting killed all over the pitch. He needs to go now and I cannot blame the players as they are playing under a manager that wants to defend all game and I can see the players are sick of this tactic. Please Mike you didn’t get a striker through the door or a central defender like every fan knew we needed, you can at least step up to the plate and get rid of this no tactical manager.

    @Tads mate to be fair I was saying I hope we get tanked 6-0 by them so maby he would get sacked. But perhaps I was only saying that becuase I knew we where gona get stuffed.

    Anyway sacrifice 1 or 2 more games to get that prick out is what we need.

    Perhaps the defense only stopped performing because they want him gone who knows. If players want you gone this is what they do stop performing.
