    fux sake ED…slow down will ya!

    He wasn’t showing his human side, he was congratulating his team for winning three points which means the chances of his investment significantly dropping in value was temporarily paused.

    17th is good enough for Ashley and we’re only one place away from that now on goal difference so that’s why he’s happy.

    Is was at the game yesterday in a box next to Ryan Taylors box and one of the lads was speaking to his dad who when asked “I thought Ryan was on the bench today, how come he ain’t”…his dad replied…”he is fit and Pardew wants him in the team but Ashley picks the team and doesn’t want him playing.”

    Now please don’t shoot the messenger….I did not witness this because I was stood just inside the sliding door drinking me Caffrey’s and wasn’t listening to the conversation but the rest of the lads were stunned and one or two apoplectic with rage that the fat b@st@rds reach is so far into the dressing room.

    There’s a part of me doesn’t believe it myself but three of the lads were talking to Ryan’s Dad and they were going mental when he said what he said.

    Re the game…I think the 10 seconds coverage of the highlights of the first half on MOTD just about summed it up…we were dreadful in the first half and then we had our usual 10 minute burst at the beginning of the second half, and then we went sh!te again…it was a very poor game against a very poor leicester side so although we got a much needed win, it still doesn’t in my opinion put us in a better place…perhaps mentally for the players, but not in the real world…we were proper sh!te yesterday and if we can only put in a performance like that at home against another promoted side then we really are in trouble.

    BTW…worst player on the park was Gouffran again…He did nothing offensively but he did track back all the time and put in a shift

    Taylor and obertan deserve to keep their places. I’m hoping Aarons is back to replace gouffran.

    Janmaat, Taylor, Colo, dummett
    Obertan, sissoko, tiote, Aarons
    Riviere, cisse

    Maybe take riviere out and play cabella in a free role behind cisse.

    Sparky, wouldn’t surprise me. Gouffran is undroppable at the moment, and the usual sub of a left back for another left back is mind boggling.

    he lost the ball following this action shot! I appreciate the goal and a good display. But settle down, don’t start the ‘like a new signing’ thing.He still hasn’t dribbled past a player and he lost the ball quite a few times. You wrote that at 25 he’s still young. Yes, but not for football or on the wings.

    But, hats off for yesterday, well done son. You need to keep working hard.

    May his progress (and Taylor’s) long continue.

    And like AP, I still remember his stint when we finished fifth. He was not good, we kept talking about confidence, if you recall.

    It is so obvious what are all the correct things that happened yesterday. Replacing one Mike Williamson made all the differences! No more long pass, increase in pace in defence, Colo going up for corner. Mike W sure always stay injured! i am so sick of all the set piece aiming at him only

    Taylor replacing Willo made a massive difference. Taylor definitely more of a ball playing centre back, and a lot more calmer. Also we had a lot more width with obertan, need cabella to come back into the team. Can’t wait for Aarons to come back as well!

    Team for liverpool: 4-3-3
    Janmaat Saylor Coloccini Dummett
    Cabella Tiote Abeid

    It’s funny how you watch Southampton with all their huge disruption, emerge from it all, playing football how it should be played.

    Yes they spent 9M on Pelle and 11M on Tadic but didn’t we do almost as much with Riviere and Cabella?

    It’s all about the manager and how he wants to play the game. We scrape a win against a promoted team in an otherwise pretty dire match and you’d think pardew had won the league.

    Ever since WHU ordered Allarydyce to play more attacking football and hire Sheringham as an attacking coach they haven’t looked back.

    Playing positively breeds confidence, containing fearful football has the opposite affect.

    Pros for me were Obertan, fair play to him and Perez who I think really has something about him.

    And how is Ashley picking the team when he’s losing lots of value on the likes of MYM , Rivere, cabella, HBA etc

    Rotonda, you make a good point there.

    Three managers that needed to freshen things up:
    Alan Pardew
    Sam Allardyce
    Paul Lambert

    Two of them got in a new coach/assistant manager to help them (Sheringham and Keane) Pardew hasn’t done anything bar buy 8 or 9 players (which villa and WHU have both done)

    Tino Asprilla has offered his services to us, surely he’d be able to teach our attackers a few things?

    The only reason Obertan has emerged is because of Pardew’s mismanagement of other players.

    Obertan may be flavour of the month right now, but we all know Pardew does not have the management skills to get anything more than a few weeks out of Obertan.

    I give it 5 games max until Obertan is back on the bench and disappears again – after that, it will be Cabella’s turn to go through the same fate.

    Rotunda – Southampton defied all odds by selling half their team and losing their Manager following a fairly succesful season. They brought in an inspired choice as Manager, they spent very well on new players and were ready for the season as best they could be.

    NUFC had a net spend of £1-2 million on the basis that it was enough to “get by” to achieve our lofty ambitions of finishing above relegation and maintaining our place in the Premier League.
    We did not improve the squad in ANY position, we tried to buy to replace what was sold, but as cheaply as possible. Unfortunately, with an extremely limited Manager we simply are not able to perform as the fans want us too – and its unlikely we will perform at that level any time soon.
    We did not provide the CB we have been in need of for over 2 years, we did not provide a recognised striker as FCB decided we didn’t need to spend the money to survive.
    The difference in approaches by Southampton and NUFC are clear for all to see – Soton have an owner who wants to succeed, NUFC have an owner who wants to make money. We are no longer a competetive Football Club, we are an Advertising outlet for SD.

    As much as I dislike the inept one as a manager, and Jabba as the owner, and without shooting the messenger.

    Jabba will have no say in what team is played, that is the sole responsibility of the manager. If Jabba was picking the team, then he would be paying the inept one for nothing, and our poor run of form would be squarely on his shoulders.

    All the inept one would have to say is “I don’t pick the team, I just manage them on the pitch” and the heat would be less intense.

    The inept one has said himself that he picks the team that he thinks can win the match, after leaving Ben Arfa out of the squad.

    Whoever those fans were talking to, it sounds like more PR to ease pressure on the inept one. Personally I just don’t buy into it.

    Southampton have a very indifferent owner and a very good manager. The owner doesn’t care about football at all, she is only honoring her father’s passion.

    When you think about it, they’ve stuffed the NE 12-0!

    Cyprus, agreed, she is indifferent as was lumbered with the club due to the death of her father. She had the choice to sell up and bail out, but decided to honor her father and make it work.

    Look at the way they now play the game – if that is what you get from an indifferent owner, please can we have some.

    We, allegedly, have an owner who wants success – at least according to his minions – and we are absolutely dire and have been for 10 months.

    I know who I would sooner have at SJP.

    The result hides some major concerns. The team selection baffled me? Why is Pardew insisting on two holding midfielders at home? Surely Perez or Cabella could have started to have someone playing between the lines? The other thing is this habit of bringing on one left back for another? These like for like substitutions give rise for concern that the manager is unable to change the direction of the game?
    It was good to see Taylor back because we all know he’s limited but his attitude towards the cause is exceptional and Obertan is proving people wrong however needs to be more selfish, more often. All in all a satisfactory result but unless you’re looking through rose tinted glasses there are still huge question marks on whether we are anything more than a team struggling at the lower end of the table? Next two games will give us some idea?

    Sazzer – does that mean its all her fault that we got landed with the Idjit that transformed into P45DUE?? I guess she would claim that FCB was free to appoint any manager he wanted when Hughton was sacked though!!

    I am starting to think that Pardew may be subbing the left back position, because the club is going to sell one of the left backs.

    If he keeps subbing Haidara for Dummet & Vice Versa, it will add the illusion of more apps to their C.V. – which would increase their value slightly.

    Haidara could end up with 25 to 30 apps this season, but in actuality play very little football.

    i guess it’s southamptons turn at being the team bloggers use to try convincing people only a manager is required to change things at newcastle.

    they used swansea two seasons ago, last season it was everton this season it seems to be southampton.

    Lets see how they do next season before we analyze them, this season they doing what pardew did when he got newcastle in 5th place, we didn’t score as many goals but still we got 5th place and that’s then main thing.

    just accept the fact ashley doesn’t give a sh1t about good football and things will never change until he leaves.

    why would an owner sack a manager who has given the team great spirit and is currently sitting in 10th place (chris hughton), but this same owner keeps a manager who is on a awful run and has already had us in 1 relegation battle?

    why does a good manager want to come when
    an owner sell good players and not replace them when things are going well, spend money when he has seen things going badly but doesn’t bother spending money in an attempt to avoid getting into them spots in the first place ie the season following 5th place?

    southampton might have the ability to not need to spend much money, take into account how badly our england teams are internationally that itself proves that southampton is 1 of a kind. when you doing as we doing, which is buying foreign players they will need a time to get use to the new surroundings. The players we see coming out southamptons academy have already been able to bond together during their time in the youth teams.

    I know it’s not meant to be nasty but look at his face after he’s done it, just before the video starts to loops again. He’s vile.

    Small World

    Someone who was there stated in the mag it started in the ground and there was limited SD security, basically a thin line between home and away supporters and objects were getting thrown. Somebody broke through the line and punches were then thrown. It continued outside the ground where a bottle struck a young lad. Again a Newcastle fan broke through the thin line of stewards and punches were thrown. Minor scuffles and all that.

    They also mentioned there was minimal police presence inside and outside the ground and wondered if it was cost cutting by the club. I must say that this wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.

    I’ll try and find the article again.

    First of all its great to get a win.
    but we just beat a newly promoted club ha we been playing any other team we would have been lucky to get a draw.
    One win doesn’t suddenly transform a sh.t squad like many seem to think.
    We’re still going to struggle we’re to weak to compete in the premier league.

    “when you doing as we doing, which is buying foreign players they will need a time to get use to the new surroundings. The players we see coming out southamptons academy have already been able to bond together during their time in the youth teams.”

    Academy players? Foreign players needing to get use to their surroundings?

    Ward-prowse came on from bench against us but otherwise they had no academy players of their own in their starting eleven.

    If fact they had 1 player from our academy.

    Maybe you can count Morgan Schneiderlin since he’s been there since 2008 but who did he bond with? Cork who arrived in 2010?

    Similar situation as with Colo arriving in 2008 and Willo in 2010. Add Krul who arrived in 2006. And we have manager that have been here since 2010 as well and not just some foreign manager who just arrived in summer.

    Yesterday, against Sunderland their only player from their academy proper Ward-prowse wasn’t on even on their bench.

    Dummet was terrible yesterday, he consistently conceded possession and was guilty of just lumping the ball. He was struggling, and Pardew was right to take him off.
