Newcastle’s League Record Since 5-1 Stoke Win Simply Pitiful

It’s not just that Newcastle are second bottom of the league at the moment – a step up thanks to a very poor looking Burnley side getting hammered 4-0 at West Brom yesterday, and having their goal difference become worse than Newcastle’s – it’s that Newcastle have had a terrible time of it in the league this year.

Alan Pardew – must start winning

We have seen many different Newcastle records being quoted in the press as this season goes on, and the general belief at the end of last season was that Alan Pardew and Newcastle had to get off to a good start this season.

We haven’t, and  after the first five games and we are still looking for our first win.

Since Mike Ashley only worries about the Premier League, we should probably concentrate on the Premier League record and maybe – since we are playing Stoke tonight – it would be appropriate to look at how we have fared since we walloped a nine man Stoke side 5-1 on Boxing Day last year.

After that game we were riding high and had taken 33 points from our first 18 league games, and there was an optimism at Newcastle.

Newcastle were above Manchester United, Tottenham and Southampton in 6th place in the league table, just 2 points behind Liverpool and 3 points behind Chelsea, and even our goal difference was positive at +6.

But in the final 20 league games we won at West Ham, drew at Norwich, and won at Hull (in spite of that Pardew head butt on Meyler) and had home wins against Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Cardiff.

So that was just 16 points from the last 20 league games last season, and when you consider 3 points form our first 5 league games, that adds up to 19 points from the last 25 league games.

As we pointed out this morning that’s just 29 points over a full season of 38 games and would mean certain relegation.

I think that’s correct. 😀

So maybe Alan Pardew and Newcastle have to win tonight – because draws are not going to do us much good in the situation we are in at the moment.

If we theoretically go unbeaten for the rest of the season, and drew every remaining league game this season, we’d still have only 36 points and would be close to relegation.

We’ll have to see what happens tonight, but after Mike Ashley’s outburst in London on Thursday night, it’s clear the Newcastle manager cannot make many more slip-ups over the next two or three games.

Newcastle need to win this game tonight – we don’t think even a draw will be good enough for the manager.

    What is even more pitiful, is the fact that if it wasn’t for 2 games being won with a lucky goal in the last minute, we would be on 3 wins for the whole of 2014.

    Paddy Power offering 9/1 on Newcastle victory, or 9/1 on Pards saving his job, I suppose. What a truly ridiculous pile of shite that was by the owner, on the eve of such an important and difficult fixture.

    you also have to look at the fact that stoke were in cruse control winning the game until they got 2 men sent off.

    So a win tonight means we go above Sunderland but it also means Pards will stay in the job.

    It’s a pretty depressing time to support the toon, the sir Bobby era seems like a lifetime ago.

    A draw is a good result. Gives us a platform at least to win when our home game comes along soon. A win is a bonus. I have faith in pardew to turn things round.

    Nufc haven’t won their last four Monday night games conceding 12 goals and Stoke City haven’t scored a goal at home this season.

    I cannot see us getting a win tonight -just no real evidence to suggest an upturn -so I’m going for a 3 -1 win to Stoke -maybe Crouch getting a couple.Stoke just need to keep lobbing it in for Crouch and he’ll cause panic and mayhem.
    I we lose I cannot see Mr Tubbs sacking Percy as this would suggest his comments whilst under the influence were true. He’ll probably wait until we get beat by Swansea.

    I may get slated for this, but obertan has to start tonight. I’d even throw in Armstrong from the off.

    Grouffran has showed a fighting spirit but he’s isolated on the wing contributes nothing more than tracking back. Cabella had been extremely poor since the first match (more selfish and less end product than HBA if I’m honest). They’re the only two players who have created anything all season, and they did it in one game

    If it’s any consolation man, we most likely WON’T win tonight seeing as it’s at Stoke.

    But of course Cisse and Riviere have conveniently found some form in the last few games and could disappoint us all. Go figure 🙂

    Don’t think Ashley did anything worse than Pards does…

    Pardew – Cabella hasn’t lived up to his price tag…
    Pardew – Riviere hasn’t justified the big money we paid
    Pardew – Sammy needs to get a grip this season

    Ashley – he needs to win in next game….

    Given that Pards has managed a grand total of 19 points from 75 – that’s a measly return of 25.3% of available points which will mean certain relegation over a season

    Another plus once AP gets the boot tonight will be finally being able to see ferreya play. Only by evidence of YouTube, I admit, but with his record as well, he seems like a more polished Andy Carroll, even a poor mans drogba. Sure, maybe he isn’t up to PL standard yet, but surely he could’ve contributed something in the cup against lesser opposition?

    Those figures are terrible and ok, Cabaye’s departure may have contributed to the demise but I’m afraid Pardew’s had more than enough time to remedy our lack of goals and hopeless defending.

    So, irrespective of tonight’s results, I believe Pardew’s had more than a fair chance to prove he’s worth hanging on to.

    That being so, I’d suggest Ashley look at Ed’s numbers, bearing in mind that we’re now five games into a new season with three points on the board and make the decision that’s right for his investment in Newcastle United.

    Pardew reign as Manager of Newcastle United should be terminated asap. Given an international break soon, it’d be better to have him replaced after the next but one match – regardless of results.

    james toon -I think King Percy will play Cisse with Riviere in the hope that it will bring something to the game.
    Unortunately King Percy seems to have more lives than a cat and the misery continues -however even King Percys’ luck must run out sometime.

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it twice, tactics for tonight should be get 2 players sent off and take it from there.

    Is that a song Toon tang ?

    I’m going with a draw, but we’ll get murdered by Swansea on Saturday, and hopefully Percy sails of into the sunset shortly afterwards.
