    This goes nowhere with Carver in charge. Might as well just sign up for 15th place now.

    I can just imagine Ashley rubbing his hands and smiling. Thinking about all that TV money and no need to spend anything on players because we have such a strong squad. 👿 Yes, I’m sure there are dozens of clubs out there that want players like Riviere, the no goal scorer, and Williamson the treelike defender.

    leave the Idiots, they looking at there old king winning and think we should never have got on his back for him to leave,

    these same idiots arnt looking at the situation that we have, which is no manager and still half the problem we wanted P45 out,

    When a new coach comes in and gives the team some identity , something will change, P45 will start his long slide down the league/ leagues, and we will be a comfortable top 8 team

    The whole problem is there’s no Field Marshall on the pitch.

    Sissoko thinks he is…but needs to be a winger or be dropped. He’s supposedly a box to box midfielder..but he’s really a Second Striker who does whatever the hell feels like doing.

    He’s our best player but our most problematic as well.

    Cabella should be given ‘the Cabaye role’ until De Jong is fit.

    Far too may crosses with 1 or 2 in the box. Southampton’s tall defenders were always going to win those

    One of these days I swear Willo will grow roots and they’ll have to dig him up to get him off the pitch.

    come on then tell me why the fcuk we have not got a fcuken manager?

    west brom can, palace can, so why the fcuk can’t we.

    another thing dummett today has been given such heavy cristism, so it proves what everybody said about pardew playing willo was absolute bull, they both are as bad as each other, we simply don’t have that quality tall CB as saylor is injury prone.

    chelsea last week we created chance after chance after chance but, nobody could convert it, why? Because we don’t have the height or power up front, cisse is the only goal scorer we do have but, he’s got very little else.

    the midfield week in week out, retrive the ball but then loose it. why can’t these player get themselve into the space? answer, because without obatan and arrons we have got absolutely no pace at all. a manager might have plans but, it’s not him who tells player to move into space, a player should know that already.

    I think they were hoping Carver would come good and not have to appoint someone from outside. I wonder if Garde resents being left in limbo. Perhaps he’d turn the job down if offered.

    Sissoko was the best player by a mile but that was his last game. Cashley sells him to Arsenal 31st January with no replacement & £15M + in his skyrocket!!
    Oh sorry we may have Siem De Jong back & that will be like signing a new player.
    Football is a simple game. The object is to stop the other team scoring by having a solid defence & score goals at the other end by having a recognized striker. There’s not much wrong with the rest if you keep your best players. Have you got it Mr.Ashley?????? NO I didn’t think so!

    I think you could be right. Either that or there’s some negotiating over the back room staff. Wouldn’t surprise me if they’re trying to force stone and carver on garde/anyone.

    toonking…the fact that we don’t have a manager has nothing to do with us wanting rid of Pardew – we still think the last 4 years were a waste of time.

    Why do you watch Newcastle if you don’t mind me asking – besides the fact that you come from the area. Ashley has been here 7 years and you clearly have no faith what so ever that anything will change while he is here.

    When you watch a game – on telly or at SJP what does it for you? There has to be more to it than just being a Geordie?

    only problem is Dummett has just moved from LB, Willo has been a CB all the time, i know Dummett is a far better choice than willo

    another thing, willo is 6ft4 when was the last time he won a header from a corner, Dummett did today, yes he should have done better, but at least he got the chance,

    Willo has never ever been Premiership quality. he can not pass or head a ball, its all about the big punt down field with him

    I just couldn’t believe how poor Janmaat was. Way off his game. And Cabella made very little impact. They were missing several of their top players and could still have scored 4.

    If you expected things to change under Carver you’re a bit thick like.
    He’s been Pardews right hand man for four years, and has had input into most of the garbage that’s been served up.

    Still wouldn’t suprise me if he was given the job though

    the trouble w can’t seem to stop supporting him and his regime.

    week in week out people think a decent manager could do this great with this team.

    no matter how many sh1t managers ashley appoints we still get lots of fans who think he’ll appoin a decent one.

    another problem is carr has had too much good publicity and therefore any player believed to arrive from abroad is considered great.

    we must get relegated as that will guarentee him loosing the decent advertising he gets and also the great TV revenue.

    plus we only need to look at southampton and should know it can be done.

    therefore lets restart all over again

    Well…
    long time since last post…
    where are those fools, that blamed it all on pardew? He is not the problem, Ashley is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Pardewout campaign…. how about the real problem?… Ashleyout campaign instead!!!!!!
    Looking at every other team in the league, i think we have the worst central defence and the worst strikers. Was that pardews fault? NO! he had no say in transfers.
    I am finished wasting more time on that crap, they show 90% of the time.
    i will not watch a single minute before good players are brought in. If the likes of everton, southampton, west ham etc can spend money on players, newcastle should be able to do too!! Fat man putting what… 50-60 mil pounds in the pockets from last season?.. and he will continue to do so, for getting 10th-15th in the league. I am not on for more of that.. newcastle should be able to go for top 6 every year!!

    Howay the lads

    A huge problem toonking. The crowd turns up, watches dross, then complains! Don’t go to the home games lads. It’s the only way to roust Ashley. He’s a thick skinned maggot. It will take real action to get rid of him.

    Haidara was very good Belfast mate. Forced several corners and stretched them on that side of the pitch. But equally bad was Janmaat which gave them relief on the opposite side. We’re our own worst enemy. Their full strength side would have truly whacked us again.

    Southampton had a so called weakened team out today but there were 2 in starting 11 out of the Academy and four making up their bench. But they had new signing Elia who scored two goals in only his second appearance & Pelle at CF who held the ball up. Both CBS were their 2nd string with Alderwield & Schniederlein injured and they sold Lovren to L’pool. and they still beat us

    Their first and second goals were tangled comedies of errors by our defense. Three points in the bank for the Saints.

    for what its worth, im with Rotonda on that one, i think we would be better off with the players sorting themselves out than having Carver and Stone there , sorry, but i really could have been watching a P45 performance there,

    as for the club, im 100% agreed, the club behind the scenes is a mess, an owner who is a fantastic business man, but dosnt understand football

    a chairman that might as well not be there, he is a ghost

    its a total mess

    2 weeks before our next match an ideal time to bring in new manager/coach 2 weeks to get to know his players and for the players to understand the type of football he wants them to play.this would leave the management team to work together to bring in new players.after all the new manager will get what he is given,

    Sadly until Sammy came on and ran at someone we were way off. Although a cert penalty near the end didn’t help. I do hope we have Abeid back in the team soon and back up to where he left off. Unfortunately Carver is just more of the same and the sooner we get a forward thinking modern coach the better, with players coming back from ANC and injuries we need a new direction.

    That’s the problem with the set up behind the scenes. No matter what anybody’s opinion of the fat tw@t is, he deserves a certain amount of respect for what he has managed to achieve as an individual. He unfortunately just chose the wrong club to buy and after 7 years I cant think of a single supporter who hasn’t had enough of this. He’s running the club the only way he knows how. But it doesn’t work like that with a football club – least not our club! He’s got to give something back to the fans in the form of trophies, or at least by demonstrating the ambition to want to achieve that.

    Desperate for a big powerful striker and a big tank of a centre half.
    Sammy can leave now for me thought he was tosh when he came on. We do lack the final 1/3 quality but i thought we just didn’t play with intensity or any urgency.
    New coach and staff for fresh ideas with a couple of signings to boot….sorry i dozed off must of been dreaming!
