Time For Newcastle To Deliver This On Saturday

It’s going to be very difficult for Newcastle to get a win on Saturday, and if we are to do that, then the team will have to play like we did in our first two league game against Manchester City and Aston Villa, when we looked a decent enough side.

Fab Coloccini – can he rally the troops?

But it’s going to be difficult for the players on Saturday, because there are organized demonstrations going to take place, and heaven help us if we concede another early goal, because then it will be very difficult for our players to come back, and a defeat in this game could see the end of Pardew’s tenure as the Newcastle manager.

This is what has said Pardew said in an interview on nufcTV:

“It was a tough day to take.” “As a group and individually we’re better than that, and I take responsibility for that.”

“It was a heavy defeat when we were looking for so much more.” “It was a tough day for our fans, a tough day for the team and, certainly, a tough day for me.

“I don’t know about patience, this is a time to stand up and deliver really.” “Saturday is an important game for us because we’ve had a difficult start.

“Even if we’d got a point at Southampton it would have been an okay start because I think we’ve had some tough games.” “But now we have a game at home where the pressure is really going to be on us. We have to deliver.”

As may be expected Newcastle fans are not too confident of a win on Saturday – because of the bad form and maybe because of the demonstrations that we know are going to take place against the manager.

But hey, this is a chance for our new players – and all the players in the side for that matter – to show they have the guts and the courage to play under adversity for Newcastle – and get the win we need to lift ourselves off bottom place in the table.

But we also know that’s going to be very difficult, and the result of this game could decide the future of Alan Pardew – if we lose again.

    A domesday scenario for us to consider as we gird our loins for Saturday at the Coliseum.
    The protests happen, they are vociferous, falling just short of criminality infact , hitting the headlines nationally ……….
    ……….but by Monday there is still no news that the t**t has gone.
    What next for the Toon Army?:
    1) If the match was lost or drawn
    2) If the match was won.

    Team for Hull game:

    ——- Riviere —– Gouffran
    ————— Cabella
    — Colback ———– Sissoko
    —————– Tiote
    Haidarra – Collo – Willo – Janmaat
    —————– Krul

    Majority of senior players in their correct positions, backs providing width; Tiote covering the defenders; creativity and control of the ball in the middle; Cabella to give Huddlestone no time on the ball and keep nicking it.

    we should be delivering every game !

    its pards job to get the best out of players and he’s clearly not ! imo down to tactics and formation and the fact the players start on a defensive footing with defence the priority.

    if we push forward it relieves pressure and stops the other teams attacking as they have to defend but atm other teams can attack us with 8 or 9 men as all our players are in our own half.

    we have a great team with lots of goals and creativity in it and there should be no excuses.

    Could the police ask Pardew to leave the dugout this Saturday.
    The charge ?
    Inciting public disorder.

    I would like to know what mike Ashley is doing with all the money the club gets in from sky to advertising, last season he got 80 odd million the money we got for cabaye and debuchy paid for all the players that come in the club in the summer, go back to when Ashley bought the club 7 years ago and count up how much has come in and how much has gone out am damn sure Ashley and his accountants are cooking the books big style

    hull city are a canny little team and am saying nowt about the result

    plenty of bite in that midfeild. Tiote, sissoko and colback should all be able to take there turn in covering a fullback when they go forward, and socks and colback can also provide a bit of width when convenient. I dont see why Pardew refuses to use anything other than 4231. I would go with what you have there, or the 433 that i have posted many times 😀

    I watched the Hull v West Ham game and I have to say both team looked capable of giving this Newcastle team a good hiding under the inept one’s leadership, or lack off.

    There is no doubt in my mind that this will be a tough game for us, and I expect we will lose it.

    We all know Ashley is the root cause of Newcastle’s problems and he needs to go, but that is a battle for another day, For now we must get the inept one out of the club, and hopefully replace him with someone who can motivate the team to play at their best.

    For me there should be sustained pressure on the club from Saturday to force this change.

    Everyone has sadly lost confidence in every aspect of our team and club. No wonder.

    At Hull Pardew will stick to what he knows…a losing formula.

    Yes Alan, just leave….

    With all the placards and bedsheets I’ll be lucky if I can see what’s happening anyway. Its time Riviere got his name in the annals and in the unlikely event that happens on Saturday and some flag-waving waster blocks my view, there will be a riot.

    Whoa back there mecanny lad.

    It’s Pardew’s continued presence that’s in inciting disorder, so maybe the police should have word with Ashley, before he’s accused of it!

    I don’t see the point, except venting spleen and frustration which has built up in all of us. The results we are getting are going to force Ashley’s hand anyway. This way, Ashley replaces Pardew ‘reluctantly’ at the behest of ‘impatient and unrealistic’ Geordie fans. We’ll get another sub-standard crony and the fans will be blamed for a disastrous season. Supporting the team or staying away leaves Ashley facing that he has to make a serious change in the way he does things at the club and buys a lot more autonomy for the new manager who will have to be brought in in December/January with a decent budget.

    Fans are the problem
    We demonise talented albeit flawed players like obertan ( who almost always scores or creates chances ) and the hardworking jones and lionise talentless losers like “FAB colocinni” the human tumour in our defence
    We have the club we deserve

    Magpies will deliver, it will be either a first win or a new manager but they will deliver. Ideally it should be both.

    I’m sure Pards would love to drop Gouff, Anita, Sissoko, Cabella, Riviere, Haidara, Colo & Willaimson. I imagine we’ll see Anita left out of the starting XI and Tiote come in. Then the only other options are Taylor, Sammy, Obertan, Perez and Campbelle which makes shocking reading. Personally I’d start them all ahead of the dirt mentioned above.

    Agreed, HBA got over the top praise for more anonymous performances than good ones. MYM, anytime he played he looked like the worst defender in the PL. Fans praise Gouffran and this guy is a football fraud. Sissoko has never really been a good player for us apart from a handful of decent performances. Calls to give Riviere time? Look at his previous stats in a poorer league and tell me why he deserves time. Our squad is poison.
