Surprise Poll Results for Newcastle – Arsenal Game

In our poll for the home game against against Arsenal on Saturday, we haven’t seen poll results like this for a Premier League game on our blog – ever.

Arsene Wenger – coming for all 3 points

A full 94% of our readers think we will lose the game at home to Arsenal on Saturday, and if that happens it will be three defeats in a row and four defeats in the last five league games and seven defeats in 12 games in charge for John Carver.


Only one in 25 readers think we will win the game.

That’s the most lopsided poll we’ve ever had in the (very long) eight years we’ve had the blog live – it was essentially set up for expats around the world like ourselves.

Maybe that means we’ll win this game on Saturday?

After all John Carver has said he has one or two surprises up his sleeve for the game.

    ITV have invited Monkees Heid onto their Euro programme expecting Everton to qualify.

    John Carver is in full Pardew mode promising us jam tomorrow.

    Biggest surprise on this poll is the 4% expecting us to win?

    John’s first surprise is that he’s gonna have 11 players on the field,with a lonesome striker,try not to let in an early goal and hit em on the break.
    His second surprise is that we will get Ryan to send in free kicks to Willo and someone will hopefully get on the end of it.
    Top plan.

    The only surprise up Carver’s sleeve is a rolled up white flag he’s hoping to wave at some point in the second half

    Saturday will prove just how (what’s the best word) stupid Newcastle ST holder’s are, people complain MA has no ambition, he hasn’t but he’s making money. But fans can’t have much ambition either, if you’re happy to pay your money and sit and watch dross what does that say?
    Your bringing it on yourselves.
    Enjoy the good hammering by a premier league team.

    Honestly if Carver is saying they are looking at transfer targets and “The Process” then he might already have the job …… he might be able to play the Pardew card with the mitigating circumstances such as injuries and suspensions

    Worrying very worrying

    Arsene Wenger speaking on the Arsenal official website today

    ‘We have good memories at Newcastle but they are always very tight, very difficult games. They are in a position where they are not under threat to go down. They always have a very motivated crowd and they always play well against us, which makes it a tight game. John Carver is a permanent manager. The length of our permanence today is very difficult to define. The average life expectancy of a manager in England is 12 months, so it is very difficult to predict how long any of us will be in charge. He has the qualities to do the job.’

    managers always speak highly of each other and there teams, doesn’t mean they mean it though.
    One thing for certain Ars will rip us apart, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s our biggest defeat of the season.

    I see Mr Tubbs Solicitors are now whingeing on about the Select Committee breaching his human rights by publishing correspondence and asking for his schedule for the coming month.
    You cannot make this stuff up – this bloke has got no consideration about anybody’s human rights – but starts shouting foul when things are going against him.

    Careful what you say man.
    Stuff like that could get the blog shut down.
    It’s ok for you , some anonymous big gob on keyboard somewhere shooting his mouth off.
    But it would be poor Dr Harrison that would suffer the consequences.

    Really, Carver, I ask you, is Phil Neville’s ‘flop-flops’ comment any more insulting to the players than this drivel is to the fans? The players are well-paid and probably deserve it. The fans pay for the privilege of supporting OUR team and we certainly do not.

    Clearly, from the tone of Carver’s comments, there’s no chance he will do us all a favour and go gracefully. I’m starting to hope we get trounced on Saturday and go on to lose the rest of the matches Carver is in charge. I honestly think it will be for the best. Its a wonder that Sir Bobby never took JC to one side on a quiet moment and told him in no uncertain terms that above all else, Geordies can’t stand bullshitters.

    jeffrey – for once I’ll engage you -rather than just twanging your arse straight away.
    Can you explain how my reporting of comments about Mr Tubbs will get the blog shut down – please provide the points you think are relevant and an explanation of what you mean and how these will impact on the blog.

    Why all this sudden concern for
    Ed – you are normally slagging him off.

    Please hurry up – the quicker you reply the quicker I can twang your arse and put a sock in your fat gob.

    Woah Woah johnny boy. You were telling the world that you were not interested in that side of things not so fcuking long ago and now your excited? Lucky fcuking you eh! It’s from the top is it AND a fact? Load of fcuking bollox you turncoat traitorous twat.

    “I’m excited that I’m part of the process and excited by the players we’re looking at. They’re good players.”

    While Graham Carr, Newcastle’s chief scout, and Charnley endeavour to execute deals, Carver must cope with his shoestring squad.

    “The good thing is I haven’t got a selection problem for Arsenal because I’ve only got 13 fit senior players, plus two keepers so that won’t be too difficult,” he said.

    “The squad needs to be stronger and Lee and the board have acknowledged that to me. They are going to invest in the summer because they know they have to. There are things in place. That’s from the top and that’s a fact.

    “The acknowledgement tells me they’ve realised they’ve got to do something about it. They know that. The fact that Mike and Lee have acknowledged it doesn’t make me feel any better but at least people out there can understand what’s happened.”

    The transfer policy has never worked we’ve just rode our luck for the most part. Coming back up and spending peanuts, selling Carroll on the last day etc etc

    Time and time again we’ve rolled the dice and got lucky.

    Every single time we’ve pulled a fast one we’ve got away with it.

    Looking around the division and the amount of money that’s been spent by mediocre clubs just to stay in the division, it’s remarkable that we’ve got away with spending peanuts.

    True. They do it because they can get away with it time and time again. Fcuking pathetic.

    What will it take before the BBBB (Blinded By Bullshit Brigade) eventually see? Going nuclear? Relegation? Perhaps paying good money to watch dross, in silence? Or having him sat at the match laughing his fat fcuking tits off at them?

    No because all of the above has already happened. So what then? Obviously something that a person of sane body and mind cannot see or becomes dissatisfied with. Some fcuking breaking point that is like.

    It’s ok. They are safe in the knowledge that the slug fcuking loves them. What they fail to realise is that it’s only because your giving him your money. That’s right he fcuking LOVES it. He definitely picked the right club didn’t he. Glutton for punishment. Hit me again, again, again.

    I can see john springing a few shocks on the unwary Wenger Boys, if I were JC I would be befuddle and confoozle him by playing players out of position, put our most gangly insecure 2nd choice CB on the back post waiting for corners that don’t reach him, and rely on our defenders to cross into the box. They’ll never see it coming.
