  1. has anyone seen the stats for the game?? any chance we can have them put on here for reading?

  2. @Craig

    well thats depends what stats you believe mate. BBC & Sky must of been watching different games as their stats were both miles apart from eachother so the only stat i can guarantee you is Newcastle 2-1 Aston Villa ;)

    I’d like to say a quick word on Obertan. Personally reckon he came on and did a great job for us, looked sharp and determined. Alot of players would of easily just curled into a ball and rotted on the bench but he obviously kept his head down and kept plugging away (much respect). Still needs to work on crossing the ball. Bags of pace and skill but we need them crosses coming in.

    One more worrying thing is where does Ben Arfa fit into this team now? You feel as though Obertan will start in place of Taylor if out injured & you wont find Pardhew bringing him off the bench with a game in the balance unless he has no choice. Little worrying for me as im a massive fan of his ability.

  3. yeah just one thing , a team from west london who has lost nine times this season , and is currently seventh from bottom was losing one nil to toon at haaf time and then put FIVE past us ! How Come ?? oh yeah and brightons anoither story ….

    Answers on a postcard to this blog ?
    It just seems worlds apart from this score and the team then already !!

  4. not been on here for ages but think Id like to add my bit on the race row / shola criticism.
    IMO the Evra and Terry incidents have been blown way out of proportion by the FA who are locked in a moral war with FIFA. Now since we lost the world cup to Russia – you remember the one the first time they ever had two world cups being decided together. We kicked up a stink which cost the then FA chairman his job. He claimed there was bribes rife throughout FIFA and even suggested the two world cups being handed out made for an *i’ll scratch your back – you scratch ours* policy for your votes. We vote for you and we vote for you type thing.

    Now ask yourself why the English cricket team are playing Pakistan in Abu Dhubai or whatever. Ok its because of political unrest in Pakistan and potential terror threat. I get that… next question why is the european golf tour being played in the same neck of the woods? No unrest here last I checked. AND finaly …the world cup in Qatar. Its all about money lads… and that is what is the core poison of the game not racism in my view

  5. and how could I forget Sepp Blatters claim that players should just shake hands at the end of the game and we tried to use that as fuel for his resognation… point scoring between the FA and FIFA

    I too think that Obertan will play against Spurs now that Raylor is out injured. I have always said that Obertan is best suited for away games as his pace is perfect for a quick breakway as he demonstrated at Blackburn; and he has also starting to tackle back more often. I hope he has looked and learned at how Jonas works in attack and defence.

    Whilst Ben Arfa is probably one of the most gifted of our players he is currently a bit of a liability, especially in away games. He is best suited to home games IMHO. In many games, he tries to do too much, more often than not losing the ball. To his credit he is starting to help out Simpson and trying to tackle but it’s not his natural game which probably leaves him a bit frustrated. He is not a winger and certainly not the (Jonas) type Pardew wants. His best position is between the midfield and the attack. In order to accommodate him we would have to switch to a 4-3-1-2 formation which I not too sure Pardew favours.

  7. In a team that is playing with loads of confidence and skill and winning a player like HBA is a big assett, when results have to be ground out then he is less of an assett. I’m pretty sure thats how Pardew sees it anyway!

    The way injuries are mounting up the whole issue could become moot, might just be a question of putting out 11 fit players.

  8. Makes you wonder what might NOT have happened though if Bestie and Raylor hadn’t got injured when they did and the substitutions weren’t forced.

    I was thinking at one point in the second half that the game was crying out for Ben Arfa and his trickery cos the hoof ball wasn’t working.

    Anyway, the DEMBA boys took care of it. Let’s hope the DEM Busters can keep smashing them in.

  9. How about – Rodney Marsh had a playing career that featured highly successful spells at Fulham, QPR and Man City. However, Rodney’s England career lasted just 9 games, something that may have occurred due to a clash of personalities with the main man himself, Sir Alf Ramsey. The story goes that self-proclaimed dressing room joker Marsh retorted to Ramsey’s remark
    ‘I’ll be watching you for the first 45 minutes and if you don’t work harder, I’ll pull you off at halftime’ with
    ‘Crikey, Alf, at Manchester City all we get is an orange and a cup of tea.’

  10. Didn’t he get the boot from sky for his tsunami ‘gaffe’?

    Where is he now?

    Same goes for ‘medium-sized’ Ron?

  11. just watched a very nervous Stevie Harper on LKO – seems resigned to departing at the end of the season after another loan spell.
    did anyone mention the interview with a relaxed & contented Chris Houton on Football Preview – followed by words of praise & respect from the studio panel. Always a dignified gent !

    “just watched a very nervous Stevie Harper on LKO – seems resigned to departing at the end of the season after another loan spell.”

    The last of the “Bonus sheet five” (Nolan, Barton, Smith, Carroll, Harper) now Smith’s been farmed out to MK Dons until the end of his contract.

  13. what was the bonus sheet all about?

    i can tell you a little more on the situation. involving a few.

    i have good contacts in newcastle who have good friends at the club.

    apparently Steven taylor wasnt well liked amongst some of the longer servants.
    when steven taylor took a hiding from carroll there was a few of the players gave ultimatums to the board and said they wanted steven sold. him or us.

    all that is left is Harper. the remaining wild bunch were carroll, nolan, smith, barton and a few back room staff. needless to say they have all departed. lesson learnt i think.

    “what was the bonus sheet all about?”

    Stephen, this is what the Joey Barton show said about the bonus sheet issue:

    Joey Barton: “Yes but don’t forget Newcastle as a playing squad last year were the only club in Premier League history not to sign a bonus sheet. It never happened. It’s unprecedented that a club did that. We refused as a playing staff [to sign] as they tried to railroad the players into signing a bonus sheet.

    “It fundamentally cost Chris Hughton his job in my opinion. Because Chris couldn’t get us to sign the player’s bonus sheet, Mike Ashley said he’s got no control over the players, he needs to go, and I think that was his undoing.

    “At the same time, We refused to sign the bonus sheet. So, their opinion was even though every single club in the Premier League history, since 1992, had these arrangements in place, they decided that we were paid workforce, which, they probably had an argument.

    “They thought we were Sports Direct and we should do what the subordinates at Sports Direct do, forgetting they were dealing with 20-odd egos, probably 10 self-sufficient men in a position to make a number of different judgments.

    “Myself, Kevin Nolan, Alan Smith, Steve Harper and Andy Carroll, probably the bigger name players at the time, advised the playing staff, because we were head of the playing committee, not to sign the bonus sheet. Obviously that filtered back to boardroom level.

    “It’s no coincidence that I got sold, well, I got given away. Andy Carroll got sold, Kevin Nolan was sold, Steve Harper, a fantastic servant for the football club has been forced to go on loan, his position made untenable, and Alan Smith’s been told he’s going to train with the reserves for the rest of his days and they don’t want him anywhere near the football club.

  15. i know there was a committee and i knew what it was about.

    the thing i didn’t know what on earth were the objecting to?

    what is a bonus sheet?

    and were they getting paid a bonus or having it taken away?

    the way joey puts it forward was that they were going to be given bonuses but the committee chose to go against it.

    what exactly was it about?

  16. Stephen C says: “the thing i didn’t know what on earth were the objecting to? what is a bonus sheet?”
    nor me mate. I asked at the time but the only comments were the obvious interpretation that I worked out for myself
    – but the actual significance & importance of it and why it caused such a problem resulting in the destruction of our team remains a mystery to me.

  17. In the end, have they all now signed a “bonus sheet” and if so what difference has it made?
