Newcastle Player To Be Disciplined


Jack Colback picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in the first half on Saturday for throwing the ball away after  a tackle,  and he will now miss the next two games because of suspension.

Jack Colback in action on Saturday

It seems that Jack is almost as bad as Cheick Tiote for his innate ability to keep picking up yellow cards.

Our squad is already decimated by injury, loan deals and lack of reinforcements in January, and to lose players through suspension is not good.

And it seems John Carver in not too pleased with the local las and he had this to say about Colback:

“It was stupid, and I’ve told Jack that.” “I could understand it had it been for a tackle, but to throw the ball away?”

“I spoke to him as well. I said ‘we can’t afford to lose you for the two home games – be available and don’t do anything stupid’.”

“And he does something stupid. He’ll have to suffer the consequences.”

It seems from what John says that Jack will now be disciplined by the club – and that will probably mean a fine.

He will be available for the game at Everton on 14th March, and will miss the homes games against Aston Villa on Saturday and Manchester United the following Wednesday.

    Btw the real weakness is not at the back. it’s in the middle. That’s where all the pressure comes from on defence.

    Best thing that came out of the Citeh match IMO was Colbacks ban, shame it wasn’t longer.

    Funny carver wants nothing to do with transfers but out a block on Cisses transfer.

    Pull the other one, another attempted PR blind side.

    The whole team should be disciplined, for total lack of effort, for a start.

    A see TIGHT ARSE ASHLEY is at again with his employers:
    Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct paid just £82 into its staff pensions in 2014, making it the third lowest contributor in the FTSE 100.

    Research by options trading firm Banc de Binary found the sports retailer paid only £82 a year into staff pensions, compared to an average of £3,000 for FTSE 100 companies.

    Anyone seen this stuff about Wonga halving their workforce?! . http://bdai.ly/Mj2G

    Obviously never nice to see people lose their jobs but could be good for NUFC if any future deals between the two are no longer viable…

    Just a thought…

    The trouble with Carver is that he sounds like he’s constantly licking the mgmts b0llocks with his finger up their a55s
    Seems like he talks to the press more than the players

    Wonga and others like it are having to review their whole business model after the FCA imposed strict new rules on payday lenders… namely

    The FCA published its proposals for a payday loan price cap in July. The price cap structure and levels remain unchanged following the consultation. These are:

    Initial cost cap of 0.8% per day – Lowers the cost for most borrowers. For all high-cost short-term credit loans, interest and fees must not exceed 0.8% per day of the amount borrowed.
    Fixed default fees capped at £15 – Protects borrowers struggling to repay. If borrowers do not repay their loans on time, default charges must not exceed £15. Interest on unpaid balances and default charges must not exceed the initial rate.
    Total cost cap of 100% – Protects borrowers from escalating debts. Borrowers must never have to pay back more in fees and interest than the amount borrowed.

    From 2 January 2015, no borrower will ever pay back more than twice what they borrowed, and someone taking out a loan for 30 days and repaying on time will not pay more than £24 in fees and charges per £100 borrowed.

    Will Wonga be able to continue sponsoring NUFC – highly unlikely they’ll want to and may terminate the deal early if they were wise enough to put a break clause in the contract

    Trouble is that Fat Ash will probably plaster the strip with something even worse!

    The reason for the very low average pension contribution is that most SD employees are on zero-hours contracts and there’s no requirement for the employer to have them in a pension scheme.

    Hence it’ll only be the few full-time SD employees who’ll be in a pension scheme and merit an employer contribution.

    It doesn’t alter the fact that Ashley’s a tight git!

    Colback is rubbish. He’s played more square balls this season than Ray Wilkins did in his entire career. He’s popular with some because he’s a local lad and he cost nowt. Well, he’s worth nowt. Complete waste of space.

    mindshaft – interesting stuff mate. Yeah thats the thing isnt it – what will Ashley do next?

    I’m just sick of it all to be honest with you. The club doesn’t excite me at all. Its tarnished its links with the city and community. We hear nowt. We get nowt and worse we expect nowt!

    To echo what thousands have said already, the life has been sucked out of it.

    Bring on Villa next weekend eh?

    I fear – or indeed hope – that there are still more significant off field shenanigans to be played out before season end.
    Four more consecutive defeats (not out of the question) sees us at The Stadium of Light. A defeat there ….. well ….. all hell will be let loose.
    Carver,Stone, Watson,Woodman walk ….. to be replaced by a very temporary Venables/Shearer double act ….until Garde arrives in July.

    it’s funny that the PR is pretty stunted, it’s all about battening down the hatches, damage limitation, scant information that keeps the fires quelled.

    As has been mentioned. Golden opportunities to look involved with the community of nufc have been swept aside. Such as being involved with the Alder memorabilia sale, charity, even being more supportive to Jonas…. it’s patently obvious that the very idea of community involvement or fan ‘ ownership’ is absolutely not wanted.

    I understand that most staff are on Zero contracts but does me heed in why millionaires/companies with loads of money treat their staff like S**T.

    All they want to do is make as much MONEY for themselves and stuff everyone else

    Krul
    Janmaat Colo Haidara
    Sissoko Abeid
    Perez Cabella
    Riviere Cisse Ferreyra

    Its weirdly quiet on Rolando Aarons’ injury. He was supposed to to have started training last week and available for Man City. Could he be frozen out till he signs a new contract? Farfetched but I wouldnt put it beyond this regime.

    You need to develop a more questioning attitude
    Just because MP’s with their own agendas say something is bad , you don’t have to believe it.
    Payday loans given to the wrong people can be a nightmare , but , to many young professionals they are a godsend.
    Zero contracts equally , suit people like , students , single parents , people who generally do not wish to be tied to a normal working week.
    MP’s don’t like to be characterised as expense fiddlers , lumping a sector under a general accusation is not right , they should extend the same curtesy to others

    And Ashley is a prime example of greed at its worst.

    I wonder what a shrink’d make of him and maybe identify what’s happened to him to make him such a hard-headed, heartless person.

    Blue and red strip eh?

    Don’t put ideas into Ashley’s head.

    As far as post-Wonga, he surely must seek a sponsor that puts real money up. But that largely depends on Ashley’s behaviour. Would a credible sponsor want to be associating with Ashley and the grief that seems to go with him? I doubt it somehow.

    in the wake of Wonga probably going west(talk about Karma) hows about lightning the mood a little on here with a competition to name the next shirt sponsor of our once great club. Impressed with Tsunki at 18, B&M Good shout, Me? Ilike the sound of UNCLES the pawnbroker
