It’s Very Important The Fans Support The Players

It’s a very difficult thing for Newcastle fans to demonstrate against the manager during a game,  and not have that be a negative for the players, because after all they are only human.

That’s true – isn’t it? 😀

Fabricio Coloccini –  it’s important the fans back the players

And the massive press build-up to last Saturday’s game when 30,00 Sack vouchers were said to be printed, it was always going to be a difficult game – not only for manager Alan Pardew – but also for the players.

But we give massive credit to the players for giving out 100% throughout the game, and even when we were 2-0 down and everything looked lost,  the fans kept supporting the lads, because our players never gave up, and on the day were able to rescue a decent point.

The Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini has thanked the Newcastle fans for this today, when he has this to say in the Shields Gazette:

“I think we had a good tempo during the game.” “We had a difficult week as well, and I think all the team showed the ambition that we want to do the right things.”

“Sometimes you can do well, sometimes not, but we tried our best, and I have to say thank you.” “We didn’t expect the support that we got. Once more, the fans showed they support us like always.”

“It’s a big point to make, because I know it was a very tough week for them as well.” “I want to say thank you from me and all the lads for the way they supported.”

“For us, it’s very important.” “It’s not about it being the cup or not, we need a win to get confidence again and show the fans again that we want to do the right things.”

We have yet to win in the league, but we did beat Gillingham 1-0 in the previous round fo the League Cup.

The Sack Pardew. com people have said on their web-site they will keep these protests going until Pardew is no longer the manager:

“We will not stop until either this employment has been terminated, or until Pardew gives the club a chance to remain in the top flight by offering his resignation.”

His employment is terminated when a resignation is accepted.

82% of fans still want Alan Pardew out as manager.

A good question would be what do the sack people do if we win our next four games, as an example, which though (very) unlikely is still possible.

Anyway, we hope the lads can win tonight and we fully expect the traveling fans to support the players on the field, as long as they give 100%.

    Help me out here, we’re always told: Support The Team, Not The Regime. But when the regime doesn’t support the team nor the loyal fans what are we supposed to do? Pardew’s inept managerial abilities and Ashley’s refusal to use the club as anything other than a giant advert makes it impossible for us to 100% back either the team or the regime. Rock – Newcastle Fans – Hard Place.

    It’s not just about the fans supporting the team though, It’s about the team giving a performance on the pitch, It’s about showing some ambition, It’s about having some pride in the shirt.

    If the players start to get these things right, then they will have the best supporters in the world behind them. They all get various vast amounts of money paid into there accounts every month, and so far they have not earned a penny of it.

    Struggling supporters scrip and save to get tickets, and for what?

    The players need to ignore everything the inept one tries to teach them, and just go out there and win they game anyway they can.

    and Sideshow Bob should be shipped off to Hull!

    What happens when AP strings 3-4 consecutive wins? Or hits a purple patch like November 2013?

    Just read that and I’ve took a extract from it.

    I said as much yesterday but with swearing included for good measure.

    Maybe I’d be more suited as a reporter lol 😉

    The club opted not to have a Press conference ahead of this game.

    The club’s programme didn’t even mention it in the list of upcoming fixtures – and there was no mention of it through United’s official channels other than confirmation that Tim Krul, Yoan Gouffran and Papiss Cisse are all too ill to play.

    The worry is that with that fitness dispatch, United were paving the way for playing a weakened side in the third round.
