Pardew Warns Players To Keep Emotions In Check

Steven Taylor was last sent off at the worst possible time,  when he picked up a second yellow card with 10 minutes to go against Chelsea, when we were 2-0 up, and that could have cost Newcastle the win.

Steven Taylor – must keep hos head on Sunday

As it was, the Newcastle defense somehow survived the Chelsea onslaught on the 10 man Newcastle side, who played valiantly to hold onto all 3 points and record a third successive win in the fixture.

Newcastle have enough problems with injuries never mind suspensions, and Alan Pardew today talked about the discipline in the Newcastle side:

“I will be looking at one or two who maybe get emotionally involved.” “Probably the one who worries me the most is Steven Taylor.”

“He wears his heart on his sleeve and played like that sometimes in this fixture.” “I’ve spoken to him about it. I think this time around, he will be a lot calmer and in a better shape.”

Newcastle could have five Geordies in the starting line-up on Sunday – Jak Alnwick, Paul Dummett, Steven Taylor, Jack Colback and Sammy Ameobi – in an attempt to end Sunderland’s winning streak – which stands at three games at the moment.

And Sunderland have won this fixture 3-0 in the last two seasons, and it’s August, 2011 since we last beat Sunderland with that famous 1-0 win with a great goal from a Ryan Taylor free-kick that gave us a 1-0 win at the Stadium of Light.

We expect Steven Taylor to start the game, and our defense will have to play a lot better than we have in the last two games, when  we have conceded four goals in each of those defeats at Arsenal and Tottenham.

Here’s hoping for a Newcastle win.

Howay The Lads!!

    Get Rid of Williamson and Gouffron then we will WIN – simple as that.

    We need Carroll back.

    Our squad is young and thin meaning our every signing has to make an impact. I think it was unexpected that cabella, riviere and ferreyra signings/loan has turned out to be a disaster with all of them yet to adapt to the league and it’s affecting our season.

    We can still put out ten outfield players in a shape that will be superior to the Mackems. I’d certainly prefer Collocini and Taylor to Knees up Mother Brown and Rick O’Shea.

    Janmmat ….Taylor…..Collocini……Dummett


    With Cisse off the bench, that isn’t far off our best side, and the pace and industry of our young forwards and the drive of Sissoko should cause their two old duffers at the back plenty of problems.

    I agree, no Gouffran, Willo and sadly so far, Rivi, in this one Pards.

    I really do want Riviere to work out and he needs time to do so, unfortunately it’s time we don’t have right now. Try and work him into the team again after new years but for now him and Goofy and willo need to sit on the bench.

    Janmmat ….Taylor………….Collocini………..Santon


    Cabella, Aarons and Cisse off the bench in the second half is a great counter attacking side against the better teams.

    And perhaps DeJong in as an attacking mid, and Sissoko in on the right, and perhaps Cisse in for Peres against the rest, and open things up a bit, and we have a pretty potent plan A and B.

    Of course injuries mean we have ended up playing a few who have upset the apple cart, and to be honest I’d be surprised if we would be seeing a great deal of Rivi, Willo and Goofy otherwise. I think they’d be going the way of Anita, and will be moved on if possible, although Rivi will be given longer.

    Some might take the more pragmatic and modern view that this one is essentially just another three points up for grabs, and that the final league position is all important, regardless of outcome. A timely reminder. Neither club has won anything in 41 years and us in over 45. It’s a stark truth. This really is both clubs Cup final, and the atmosphere is always as charged as any match anywhere. I really can’t wait.

    Someone in here claimed, according to some source,that Ings transfer to Newcastle in Jan is done and dusted.However, Burnley surely know that staying in PL can worth atleast £50m,where as,losing Ings at EOS cost them nothing.So they’ll gamble b/n £3m and 50m.
    Whatever happens, Ings will be a good addition to the squad.

    In the mean time,talk of Aarons offered that wage structure,and rejected by him, is just rubbish talk as usual by newspapers.Whatever offer he receives by his club,he 1st needs to understand that he didn’t approve himself 100% that he is good enough for the club to play consistently.Yes he has talents and showed some glimes of his potential in previous games,and scored some important goals but,can he keep it that way is the true question.For me,he hasn’t showed yet.I like him as a player and we are lucky to have him considering what he did recently and some of his talents but he has to show that good deeds and talents consistently to deserve something better.For now, he is just a kid.And Nu is the best place for him to develope further and get consistent games that he surely demands.Sammy should get a new deal as well.We all saw what he has done so far.Even if he gets dropped somehow for whatever reason, he can be good backup as he still has potential and talents.Hwtl

    Reyan –

    I suppose it depends on Aarons’ view on his potential as against the club’s view.

    For all we know, he may prove to be highly injury prone and his career cut short.
    Obviously, we all hope, for his benefit and ours, that he can fulfil the potential he has already shown in glimpses.

    We want to protect our position, and he wants to protect his.

    Just hope we can find common ground.
    If he really does develop into a top class player, there is no way we would hold him to a £6,000 a week contract for 4/5/6 years.

    Maybe the best option is to hold him to the 1 year extension and see how things develop.
    Let’s face it, with an option of a 1 year extension, the only reason we would be offering a 4/5/6 year deal is to protect our interests.
    And, naturally, Aarons wants to protect his own best interests.

    Hypothetically speaking, as say a kind of a social experiment , if Aarons signed on for six years at 6000 pounds per week, and stayed and performed and never asked for a penny more. Would Ashley’s Newcastle just say, “thank you very much”, hold him to it, and then sell him in his fourth year for 20 mill upwards, for example. Would they see that as fair do’s?

    I’ve been accused on here by a couple of low lifes as being anti NUFC, I am vehemently anti Mike Ashley who innturn, I believe he is anti NUFC, bills son says he’s (Mike Ashley) a supporter, how can anyone who would sacrifice a cup run over the difference between 8th or 12th possibly be a supporter.

    I must say your English has improved at an alarming rate, if it wasn’t for the odd missing compound word, one would think you were a native.
