When Are Enough Defeats Enough?

Sunday, April 20th, 2014 · 7 Comments

When you hold a prominent position at a company and you don’t perform, and it’s obvious you are not performing up to requirements, three things can happen – you can be moved out to another job in what is called a sideways move, you can be fired, or you can take the initiative and go find yourself another job at another company, before the hammer comes down.

Yohan Cabaye – This Is Why I Left Newcastle

Sunday, April 20th, 2014 · 11 Comments

Yohan Cabaye left Newcastle in January and was not replaced and it was another massive mistake by Newcastle owner Mike Ashley who has proved time and again he doesn’t understand how football works, and he is simply not cut out to be the owner of a football club – especially one with the history and pride of Newcastle United. :(

Mathieu Debuchy Gets It Right – After The Game

Sunday, April 20th, 2014 · 9 Comments

There have been and there will be a lot of negative things written about both Mike Ashley and Alan Pardew in the coming week(s), but the returning Mathieu Debuchy was interviewed on the Newcastle United web site immediately after the game yesterday – and Mathieu gets it all completely right in what he says – this record of five successive league defeats is simply nowhere near good enough for a club like Newcastle United.

Alan Pardew – 5th defeat on the trot

Here’s Alan Pardew’s interview after our 5th successive defeat – this time to Swansea at home, and it was only Swansea’s second win in the last ten games. and their first away win in their last 12 games on the road. :(

And Sunderland beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in the late game, and that was Jose Mourinho’s first home league defeat as manager of Chelsea – and Sunderland must now have a decent chance of survival.

Comments welcome.

Pardew – It Was The Injuries – We Could Have Won Today

Saturday, April 19th, 2014 · 139 Comments

Newcastle are in decline and we now have suffered five defeats on the trot – eight in our last eleven, and thirteen in our last 18 games in all competitions.

So nobody can accuse Newcastle of doing well since we hammered a nine man Stoke side 5-1 on Boxing Day.

Pardew Pressure Mounts – 13 Defeats In Last 18 Games

Saturday, April 19th, 2014 · 160 Comments

Newcastle started this game with a little hope (and a prayer), against a side who had won just one game in their last nine and were having some internal strife too – but Newcastle are also on a terrible run and we were beaten 2-1 today, and we have lost the last five games, 12 in the last 17 league games, and 13 in the last 18 games including the home defeat against Cardiff City in the FA Cup.

Is that a terrible record or is that a terrible record?

Nightmare Goes On And On – Magpies Lose 2-1

Wilfried Bony scored a goal in the stoppage time of each half this afternoon, to give Swansea only their second win in 10 games against a weak Newcastle United side , who have now lost five games on the trot, and this must be one of the worst runs for a Newcastle side for a long long time as we have now lost

It’s a surprise that both Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy are starting on the bench today against Swansea, and why that’s the case we have no idea, it’s not like we don’t need them in the team immediately.

Newcastle have been linked with Tom Ince over the last couple of years, and the contract of the 22 year-old runs out in June at Blackpool,  and the England U21 winger is currently on loan at Crystal Palace, who have got four wins on the trot since losing at Newcastle 1-0 on 22nd March, which was the last time we scored a goal.
