Alan Pardew – terrible injury problems

Here is Alan Pardew’s interview with ESPN after the 3-1 defeat at Manchester United yesterday, and he bemoans the long list of injuries we have – and there were (at least) nine senior players out yesterday.

Paul Dummett and maybe Vurnon Anita have picked up new injuries in that game.

Comments welcome.

    The only saving grace is that we couldn’t see a win coming before Leicester and we got six in a row, he only has to mange another five wins and five draws this season, surely he can manage that !

    Oh Waaah Waaah Waaah – dry your eyes Your Majesty! Injuries, Schminjuries doesn’t matter whose fit – your crass repositioning of players,and arbitrary shoehorning of your go to favourite workhorses does all the damage injuries can never do. I think you should embrace the injury list because let’s face it you were forced to play lads you wouldn’t have allowed in to clean the dressing room bogs and they got you a winning streak and an extension to your contract. Never fret though, you’ll be back on zero hours after tomorrow.

    What a tw@t, we need four points from these two home games, prizes for guessing which one he is going to set up for a draw then, the 48K are in for a real treat tomorrow, he is a out and out loser.

    It was quite sickening to see the space man utd were allowed in midfield yesterday. Glad Tiote is back will hopefully get the best out of Colback who was horrid and culpable for the 2nd goal. Tiote does slow the game down but we had less possession yesterday than in most other matches. Hopefully Armstrong is allowed out on loan so he can develop otherwise his talent will amount to nothing.

    All teams have injuries these days, especially ones like us where we place emphasis on fitness above things like skill and passing. We’ve been unlucky getting 2 keepers injured, but apart from that its only the wings where we are continuosly coming up short and that’s Pardews choice to play Ameobi and Gouffran. He has Cabella who was £12m on the bench & 10 goal Cisse so he can’t complain. Look at teams like WBA, Stoke, Villa, Palace, Sunderland, Burnley, QPR, Leicester. They would love to have the 11 we started against Man Utd.

    Pardew bemoans injuries however other than Tiote who else would you have liked to have been fit? You can argue SDJ but we haven’t seen enough to form an opinion and both Aaron’s and Ameobi are still in the “hit or miss” category so yes he has injuries but I would still argue that the team put out yesterday was good enough to put up a better performance than what we saw. I am not in the anti Pardew camp but you do sometimes wonder whether he has a Plan B and also the fact we haven’t scored within the first 37 minutes surely highlights his cautious approach?

    Does anyone think Cabella will come good? I think we’ve been sold a dud.

    Injuries happen to all teams, my biggest issue is that pardew matched Man Utd yesterday with his formation, by doing that he’s trying to tell them that we are capable of matching them man for man positionally. We were lucky they we had another game in 48hrs otherwise it would have been 5 or 6, they defo took there foot off the pedal.

    How’s anything gonna change unless we can eventually try to gather enough fans with investors to buy him out.
    Pulis is available as is Warnock ,any takers?
    Pulis for me would sort out our defence but we’d still be a boring side.
    Although before he left palace ,they were attacking teams and looking a decent side

    Can’t make my mind up about Cabella and I don’t think Pardew can either which is ridiculous when we chased him for months then forked out £12 million on him. He seems to be a bit of a one trick pony with his “step over” however many said the same about Ronaldo when he first went to Man U

    So if he bemoans injuries,where’s he supposed to pull players out of a hat?
    Haven’t seen enough to form an opinion on Aarons ?
    The guy beat City defenders that are worth 40 times his value and are full internationals.
    He showed he’s more than good enough and better than what we’ve had since his injury.

    Our Toon
    Don’t think Cabella is a dud but needs playing time and needs to be in a team that knows how they’re set up.

    I don’t know how Pardew keeps the spirit up after some of his devastating lows, he has a captain who is literally itching to get away and see his contract out, arguably our best player in Sissoko who is just waiting for a bid and will be off without looking back and Tiote who has lost interest in a club who only want him if someone doesn’t offer enough to take him, this January will be interesting.

    crazy idea I know but possibly try not bringing players back too soon against medical advice pardew.

    it’s funny how players hardly ever seemed injured under KK and SBR, as everyone wanted to play.

    Contrast the appeal of going out and expressing yourself , opposed to 34% containing, possession football and an average 2 shots on target in 90 mins per game.

    It’s so baffling, on Twitter type in #martinezout, so many everton fans wanting him out, lol we can only dream of a manager like him. Got them their highest ever points total last season, playing beautiful attacking football, that will benefit them long term if they give him time

    How does AP keep up the spirit in the dressing room after the set backs received so far this season ? What a good question.
    At the risk of being termed a Pardew lover ( which I’m not – I just don’t think he’s as bad a manager as some make out) I’d say he must be quite a considerable motivator, in addition to his abilities as a coach, something only those in the NUFC dressing room are likely to know about.
    As for his own spirit, I imagine he steers clear of blog sites such as this, and trusts in the knowledge that he has been here before in the 700 odd games he has managed, and is confident that, as long as he maintains the support of the players, it’ll all turn around. Ashley’s support, so far anyway, must also help.

    I’m unsure on Martinez, very much like pardew in that he has only got a plan A. He doesn’t adapt to the opposition and he doesn’t seem to let his team mix it up even though they have a big, strong forward there.

    The only difference is that his plan A is better than Pardews.

    Martinez was useless at Wigan, made them play “more attractive” football than previous managers but constantly fighting relegation when jewel and Bruce weren’t when there

    He’s not as bad as some of the extremists on here make out but his football is sh!t despite what motivational skills he might possess. Turn it round !
    To what ends though, just enough to save his job again before another devastating run with embarrassing scorelines, we need a change of scenery despite what Mashley may or may not do to hamper things.

    Gouffran should be playing up front. He’s a striker. He might be an asset up front.

    We need to sign the following players:

    So, back to looking for that 40 point mark…

    The two kids up front must learn when to pass and when to shoot, especially Armstrong. The difference was in the quality of the forwards.

    I predicted a 2-0 (chelsea) and 1-3 correctly. I think next game will be a draw.

    Pardew starts the wrong players. Dummett and Williamson are useless. Ferreyra should be given a chance. If he plays poor, we can then get rid of him. What’s the point in signing a player on loan to not play him.

    Anita should be starting ahead of Colback. Abeid will be a first team regular.

    Can’t wait for Santon to come back.
