Sky Sports Video – Newcastle Could Be Pushing For Europe


Here´s a good discussion of Newcastle and their current problems by the Sky Sports team.

At the end they sum things up by saying the players we have are good and with a good manager – like Mauricio Pochettino – rather than a good playing field coach like McClaren – who they point out has proved in the past he is not a good manager – then we could be pushing for Europe.

You have to get past the initial bit about Harry the Hornet and Perez´s terrible miss after he was brilliantly set up by Moussa Sissoko and some initial digs at Newcastle.

    I was singing the praises of Pochettino around 18 months ago. only to be informed by Rotonda that Martinez was the man for us.
    Rotonda pulled rank on me by telling me he’d got his coaching badges and new a talented coach when he saw him.

    Carl,
    Both are decent coaches .
    Not like they were coming to us anyway ,not under the current regime.
    Who honestly even raised an eyebrow when Claudio went to Leicester ?
    Bet remi guard wishes he had given us more of a look now

    I can’t actually believe that one, the club would even consider selling Tiote in January and two, that some fans seem to support the idea. What happens if Shelvey decides he’s not up for a few games, he knows he can’t be dropped, whether letting Santon leave in January last year led us to losing eight in a row but it definitely contributed to our woeful form and near miss. If they take 3M for Tiote because they’re scared they’ll only get two in the summer then there’s really no hope for the club.
    Btw,
    What a thoroughly despicable comment from a thoroughly despicable poster that KK’s entertainers were a blight on the club for raising our expectatoons

    I agree totally with your tactics. If we play the 3-5-2 again we should win. Like you said they don’t use the wings, we could definitely exploit them down the wings, even the 4-2-3-1 could work if we keep pressing.

    Mbabu hasn’t had a bad game yet so should be included, hopefully he was subbed to keep him fresh for tomorrow. Dummett looks better in the centre. If Colo’s injured Dummet and Mbemba will do alright.

    I really fancy the win. Man u aren’t that great lately, we play better against bigger teams. Maybe our players do it against the bigger teams in the hope they’ll be noticed and bought by the big guns, especially with our club being a stepping stone to a potentially bigger club.

    I do feel sorry for Thauvin and Mitro. They are both being attacked far to early. Mitro has to feed off scraps most of the time. Thauvin hasn’t had a decent run to adjust to the pace of the league, he only gets 5-10 mins to impress.

    The fans have every right to express anger but I think it’s being vented in the wrong direction. There’s is one man at fault for the state of the club. Ar$ley! Karma seems to be doing it’s job lately, hopefully we don’t get punished by the fat cnut for his losses.

    Hi Carl / Ian?

    Nice way to start the day. As far as pointless, inaccurate and non – sensical comments go you’ve topped it there.

    With the greatest respect I think you are being just a wee bit of a – – – – there or have very selective recall.

    If you look at a lot of my emails I have long advocated Pochetinno and several other leading foreign coaches.

    Yes I like Martinez very much and still do but I have just as much time for Pochetinno who I admire greatly along with your Klopps, Jose sampauli, even Flores etc.

    I would kill for a Pochetinno type as manager so just don’t know where you have got that total BS from.

    As for coaching badges yes I have them but dont see how that is relevant to whether I like Martinez or Poch. Take the trouble to actually see the content in my comments and you won’t continue to appear to be so one eyed and misinformed on such a regular basis.

    What’s the point of a MOTM poll when virtually no one when to the game? I imagine most folk have only seen brief highlights. Would Ed in the US have seen the whole game to be able to give Mbabu MOTM?

    Did I miss the memo about this blog becoming a weird, immature, name-calling forum? Don’t we all support the same team? By all means disagree with fellow fans but don’t stoop so low as to insult them.

    On Mitro, I’ve said from the first time I saw him that he looks heavy and lumbering. He looked a bit slimmer after being dropped and working with the fitness coach. But for a young man of 21 he still appears to be far too heavy. That’s not to write him off. I can’t see him getting a lot of goals but that’s not a problem if he can help a natural goalscorer to 20 -30 a season. Whether or not hes capable of that is a different matter. However, it was clearly a major error of judgment to rely on him this season. A massive gamble.

    Radio Newcastle were slating Mitro for not moving around and putting the effort in. He seemed to do okay in the few highlights I’ve seen.

    Perhaps so. But I imagine if any of them have voted on here (only the odd away fan posts), they’d be very much in the minority. I think I read Thauvin is third. If that’s right, how come? Particularly given that he was singled out by some fans?

    I think that this kind of behaviour from a half dozen or more very regular posters has really held back the success of this blog, or at least the comment section anyway.

    I’m sure I’m not the only reader who refrains from posting much because of how rudely people react to opinions they don’t share. It’s very immature.

    If you had known we would only buy one striker, would you have preferred Mitrovic or Austin in the summer?

    The Times report that the 25-year-old Bordeaux winger Henri Saivet flew into Tyneside last night to complete a move to St James’s Park.

    Henri Saivet has played 12 games for Bordeaux from CM and 8 games from DM.

    Jeff you are probably right Newcastle will probably deploy him as a winger!

    McClaren insists he is still not concerned by United’s current plight though. (Chronicle)

    He and Charnley must be the only ones!

    Henri saivet is apparently close to signing from the little bit I’ve seen of him he would certainly add to the midfielders we currently have. He has a good shot on him and he isn’t bad in the air despite his size. Seems to time his jumps very well for set pieces. The major questions I have concern his fitness and how long will it take for him to adapt to the English game. Either way if the deal is finalised later today let’s hope he can do the business here and that he is the first of many.

    The first thing you need in a bad situation is someone with a cool head – no room for Corporal Jones at the moment.

    Saviet was out of contract next summer. It makes you wonder how much precedence that factor had in the deal. Another player on the Moondial agency books too, quite a coincidence.

    Tiote probably have 5 more games in him this season due to bookings and injury of course! A bit like Cisse!

    I wonder when Colo will break down. Saylor will probably just be back for him to get injured again.

    Jail if you wonder why these players should have been upgraded in the summer then here’s your answer.

    The amount of games they don’t contribute (and the little they contribute when they do play)

    No player should leave without a proper replacement of course. That goes without saying.

    morning all
    reading this morning about few things and thought id have a say…
    mitro…..same as thauvin really,a young lad,coming into a tough,physical league, into a team lacking confidence thats under performed most of the season,his confidence is not high so he’s missed a few sitters…so what it happens the give him and thauvin for that matter a break,didnt shearer go on long run of games without scoring for england before euro 96 and yet ended up being leading scorer in the competition…..it happens to strikers,give him/them time.
    tiote…..hope he stays personally as i think he is slowly getting back to decent,not his best at the minute but decent and believe he’s the best at what he does at the club.
    saivet…..looks a strong player hope his fitness issues are behind him dont need another crock….seems to of had a canny eye for goal in the past but more cm nowadays,apparently he’s flew in to complete the deal so thats looking good.
    shelvey…..he’s took the piss out of us a good few times when we’ve played against him and think he would give us a something colback,anita tiote dont,shots and forward passing

    I like Mitro and think he has promise but he was bought as the main man and that’s too much to ask of a 20 year old in a team that had been woefulky mismanaged for the last six months.
