The Silver Supremo muses on a very disappointing evening for the Magpies.

A tense game for Woy for by the sound of things, but he was well chuffed when the third goal went in – We weren’t!

  1. “better” highlights worky? or just longer? – still, appreciate your effort, thanks, I was in no mood to watch on TV.
    I see Santon was replaced at half-time with a knee injury “which was not thought to be be serious”. How long has he had this knee injury, which was not thought to be be serious ?
    – makes sense of not buying a french CF whose knee injury is not thought to be be serious !

  2. Couple of observations from last nights game.

    Does Demba Ba really need someone ‘big and strong’ alongside him as a joint striker?
    He looks quite a handful all by himself, which is why I fail to see what significant contribution and difference Best makes. Would it therefore not be better to play Ben Arfa or/and Haris Vuckic as a withdrawn striker who can supplement the two central midfield players when required and also support Ba.

    Is Tiote match fit or/and is he missing Cabaye? He looked very rusty. He also slowed the game down. Given that we seem to have riches in midfield with a very impressive debut by Vuckic, plus having an equally talented Abeid on the bench would it be such a ‘disaster’ to sell Tiote?

    Is it necessary to field two wingers? Is it too predictable? Why not play one winger (Jonas) with a more versatile player on the opposite wing, Ben Arfa ? Obertan has ability but something just isn’t clicking. Why does he keep stopping once he has got past his man?

  3. stop harping on about the points total pardew that is what we did 4 or 5 games ago, blame has to lay with perch for the first 2 goals never a defender and proves how thin our squad is, and that we should have spent some of the 40mill if not all on a quick striker to play with ba and another quality defender aswell. go out in jan and sign big samba and olivier giroud and stop messing about pretending to be interested in players and bringing excuses why we dont sign them. also ashley stop selling , we need signings to add not take away!!!!

  4. Kamar – agreed – did you see Supermac December 22, 2011 at 12:16 am? This NUFC 4-4-2 is broken and needs fixed! We don’t have the players to make it work & talented players are being wasted cos they don’t fit into it.
    It is a bankrupt concept!


  5. Kamar: Tiote has one performance that’s somewhat off the pace in his second match back from injury (and we lose, mind you) and you think it’s not a problem to sell him? In favor of a two guys-one of whom has two PL appearances, the other having none and neither of whom is ever described as a CDM? FFS, that’s the sort of assumption that was behind people telling me “don’t worry” about a lack of squad depth over the last months and that getting goals from someone other than Ba wouldn’t be a problem because Cabaye would get 5-10, HBA would get 5-10, Best would get 10-20, etc., etc.

    Yeah, it would be a disaster.

  6. best has scored in 1 game and now he would get 20 in a season ? YEA RIGHT. Ben Arfa hasn’t been given a chance yet but maybe he isn’t as good as he was thought to be, hasnt impressed me at all. I would stick him in instead of Obertan who was terrible yet again and spend spend spend on at least 2 class defenders.


  7. Derek l on benny arfa . I think the problem with him is he isn’t as good as he was before his broken leg. I remember watching him last season. When he played next to tiote he put tiote in the dark. I remember being at the everyone game tiote didn’t impress me much. Benny was all over everton. We couldn’t get anything past their keeper, the yank was on top form. But now keeper in the world was going to stop bennys shot. I think patience is needed with benny. It will take over a year for him to get over the mental injuries. After all does time no heal all wounds?

  8. great little pass by benny for the ba second, vukic looked best ive seen him, and i think i would certainly dop obertan for benny everyday, change the shape possibly benny would have an end product over the amount of games obertan has played!!!
