Alan Pardew – Jose’s Moaning – It’s Just Frustration

It’s becoming big news that Jose’s comments after the game were less than magnanimous and he blamed everything he could think of for his team’s defeat – including our ball boys.

Alan Pardew and Jose on sidelines yesterday

This is some of what Alan said after the game yesterday:

“We wanted to play more football, but it was not possible because of a few things I thought didn’t belong any more to top-level football, but still belong here,”

“Jose’s frustrated.” “I understand that, but you’ve got to give the opposition credit. Jose’s moan at the ball-boys was a bit harsh. Come on, it’s unbelievable”

“Jose won’t agree, but we’ve done the Premier League a favor by making the title race more interesting.”

Mourinho was speaking toi BT Sports after the game – and this is what Mr. Grumble had to say:

“The ball disappeared, the ball doesn’t come, another ball comes, and the ball-boys run away. These kinds of situations that are, unfortunately, still part of the game.”

“But no complaints.”

After that last line he went on to complain about a lot more things.

Have you ever seen a team down to 10 men with 10 minutes to go in the game hurry things along – so that the opposition has more time to score?

As former Newcastle great Chris Waddle said on the NBC Sports TV broadcast yesterday – if Chelsea were in the same position as Newcastle the would be doing exactly the same thing and try to slow the game down.

And we pointed out last night that we have 10 players out injured – Chelsea have one – we lost our goalkeeper at half time and then had to play a young lad in his debut.

Steven Taylor got himself sent off again – and then the referee somehow thought he would add six minutes of stoppage time.

And Jose is the one complaining?

He’s almost as bad as Arsene Wenger when he loses. 😀

    let me start by saying FABTASTIC RESULT yesterday, not many seen that coming esp ME.

    it was bad form from Jose to blame the ball boys for them not wining, esp when you look at the stats,

    26 shots 9 on target
    67% possession
    10 corners

    for me they had more than enough time, and lets be fair, 6 mins of added on time was more than enough to compensate for the ball boys,

    for me it was more about wanting it more, they thought they could just turn up to one of our training matches and walk away with the points, they didn’t really try hard enough,

    that said, you have to look at that comment that Jose said, and I think he is bang on the money, most of our matches look like friendlies/training matches, we do not want to attack in the first half of any match regardless of who it is we are playing, now im not saying we don’t attack in the first half, we just don’t get many bodies forward.
    if you look at who we have beaten this season its very impressive
    Man C
    4 from the top 6 last season , but that tactic works when the other team comes play football so we can hit them on the break,
    now factor in the
    Lei C
    west ham
    these teams don’t want to play football, and we end up with a narrow hard fought win draw or loss,

    we use the same tactic vs everyone, we sit in – goals , we don’t really use our best players in the best positions, its all about doing it his way, which for the most part is wrong,
    remmy came on VS Burnley sitting just behind the forward, looked quite good, stared on the right wing vs Chelsea was starved of the ball, and looked poor

    when confidence is high as it is right now, its ok, as everything looks great with these narrow wins, but when confidence is low, as it has been for long spells during his time here, we just look terrible, like we are in training mode, and results don’t really matter so much, this in when the clueless one should be earning his money. but he just sits it out until his next lucky streak

    il just add, I have no problem playing his only tactic against the top teams, I just wish he would be a bit more brave against the teams that we all know will be in the bottom 10,
    its what you do against these teams that will give you your final position at the end of the season, its no good beaten the top 5 teams, drawing against the next best 5 placing teams, then losing to the bottom 10, which is pretty much what we do

    So even though Pardew has lost won 7, drawn 1 and lost 1 of the last 9 matches despite having a shedload of injuries and a constantly changing team – he is still getting damned with faint praise from you.

    Pardew has done fantastically well both professionally and personally since the Sothampton performance and the massive local and national criticism that followed. He kept his belief that the squad could turn things round, kept his calm and dignity during games and interviews and hasn’t gloated now that results are going his way.

    You have dug yourself into a hole with your constant ‘Pardew is the worst manager in the league’ moans and he is burying you in it.

    Do yourself a favour and dig yourself out by giving real credit where it is due.

    That’s high praise from catchy tbh. Probably the best we can expect. At least he still turns up on here, win lose or draw and is consistant in his views. Sometimes they are extreme and sometimes they are justified. It’s the multiple posters with their wind-up views trying to get a bite or vile mutterings we should be berating.

    I believe he only wants the best for nufc but goes about it differently than others. The trolls and wums have no affection for nufc and their sole purpose is to cause arguments and annoy any poster they want too on any given day. As I said he’s consistant in his views, they don’t have views just ramble on about other posters.

    My view on it anyway.

    It will be interesting to see how Chelsea, recover from the mauling, Newcastle United, inflicted on them yesterday. Mourinho, sounds worried especially now that his team is only 3 points ahead of Man City.

    I’ve got a theory here, that perez is playing up front to cover for SDJ whiles injuried.
    Cisse and de jong will be the two main forwards. Good thing is they can both play together aswel.
    Perez will hopefully be put back in his natural position as a Winger.

    On a side note. The criticism he received both locally and nationally was and still is justified. Blaming everyone under the sun bar himself for our dreadful run of form and if this wasn’t highlighted by then the national media would never of reported it. It was only after the fact made the headlines that the facts came to light. Up until that point we were just the whinging geordie fans with nothing to whinge about. That’s how we were seen.

    Pardew’s marauders, have built a good platform, for a top 7, finish and if he buys wisely in the January, transfer market Newcastle United, can be a Premier league force once again!

    Sorry to disappoint mags, but nobody is coming this January. NOBODY!

    We are in the top half, safe from relegation, and have between 10 to 15 players to come back. No chance fat man will invest on others with so many players coming back

    And so it begins….why do you bother troll? Did I touch a nerve? I never mentioned names did I so why feel the need to respond if your not a troll or wum? You’ve just proved my point that you have no points or views as your sole aim is to cause arguments and berate other posters because “it’s fun”

    Get a grip you saddo. Better still just get yourself banned again.

    You know I’m always quick to have a moan about our spending but I really don’t think we have to do that much in January, that dominant CF you mentioned yesterday and a quality CB that would replace STaylor, nothing to do with his sending off but his injury record is just too unreliable.

    You were being positive in your first post of the day?

    Please highlight where? Oh you mean how are chelsea going to recover after the mauling we gave them. Yes I can see how that’s positive.

    Your first interaction with a poster was to berate them. Again your a sad little blurt and your patter is shit but please continue with your pathetic attempt at justifying your existence on this blog.

    your not getting it at all, I think it is quite easy for you to come on here and spout stats about our last 7 games, but you know as well as most others , a season isn’t 7 games long, its not 10 games long its 38,

    you go on about injuries, but you never say anything about bad team selections, the team he picked against burnley had nothing to do with injuries, GOOFY on the right side of MF, WHY ?? Perez as an attacking MF again WHY ??, Williamson playing ahead of Saylor ? WHY? ,
    even with his recent good form, with the best squads he has ever had, we are his second worst in his win ratio league.
    these points vs Chelsea are amazing, no one expect us to get anything, I expected us to set up camp in our own half and be hard to beat, but why should I expect that same tactic against Burnley? IMO we gave Burnley the first half, as we do with most teams we play, well that leaves only 45 min to win a game, if your happy with that, then great for you,
    I would like us to go out and try and win a game of football over at least the first 80 mins, the if your winning or drawing , close the game out for the last 10 mins,

    who is injured in our squad that we miss ? I cannot think of one player
    SDJ ?no, he hasn’t started his career with us
    Jonas ? no, he was deemed not good enough for us anymore 2 seasons ago
    taylor ? no, he was our make shift LB that most fans think is to slow for us
    obertan ? again, deemed not good enough by me and most other fans, has most things that should make him a world star, but lacks belief in himself, runs and forgets the ball.
    santon? we have 3 pretty good LBs

    Krul is a miss, but its only been 2 games

    Arrons, another miss, but when he has been fit, some times he hasn’t even made the bench, goofy would still get a star before him if fit.

    I look at Abeid, he is our most complete MF he can do every job in CMF better than all the others, he is box to box, he can tackle and he can pass, but will get over looked,

    when I look at our squad, we have good competition in most places, just not CB, he got rid of MYM , the kid is flying in Roma, I don’t think he is a RB, but pardew put him there a few times, and if people say he is rash, I don’t think he is as rash as Saylor, I think he could have been sent off 2 times yesterday, by being stupid.

    as a football club, what are known for, ? its our No9s , center forwards, we love someone who can stick the ball in the back of the net, pardew chokes the life out of any CF by lack of service to them. our CFs feed of scraps, and its because he like to turn his “wingers” into some type of DMC that tucks in, in most matches its our RB/LB that do most of our attacking, I don’t think we have had one wide player that has done well for us under pardew, the best we have had has been HBA, but he was forced out because he would not tow the DMCwinger party line,

    like I have said, snatching wins from the top teams is great, but we should be trying to beat the teams at the bottom, esp with the squad we have, top 6 IMO

    Ffs Catchy will you not for once let it go. Fair enough you point out all his inadequacies as a manager, and rightly so, and you are consistent so no one can accuse you of being a flavour of the month kinda guy.

    BUT as someone on here rightly said yesterday if everyone feels it’s fair to Slate Pardew for our losses then surely even the most entrenched against him must give him at least a little praise for the run we’ve been on the last wee while?

    I myself am not overly enamoured with the guy but can see how a lot of this past run has to do with him and how he has handled the start of the season adversity and how the squad have seen that and almost fed off it.

    His starting lineups, forced on him maybe, have been almost what everyone here have been calling for. His subs have been at the right time, the right people and for the right reasons.

    Maybe he has learned from the weight of criticism, maybe he’s right in saying it’s his most settled squad since he came here and that the young ones are starting to get to grips with it or maybe you believe the players are just doing what they want to do themselves and its got nowt to do with him
