  1. At least liverpool are tonking Wigan. I dont want to tempt fate but it really looks like it will be 3 of the current bottom 4 who go down.

  2. <<<<<<<<<<< thought we were bossing the game meself bit gutted we did not leave with at least a point

  3. This is where Pardew is really pissing me off. He has been playing this same team since we got the new players. Each game presents a different challenge we must set up for that challenge rather than a generic set up. It is really poor management when a manager always plays a generic game. We need more thought going into our games not just a collection of our latest purchases.

    “<<<<<<<<<<< thought we were bossing the game meself bit gutted we did not leave with at least a point" Both sides bossed the game at times Toon. They bossed the first half and we responded and broke up their play a bit in the second half, resulting in better spells for us, apart from their goal obviously!

  5. watched the game on a dodgy link, and i have to say we were robbed.
    we were the better side, apart from the first 20 minutes, and we created enough chances, to have won the game comfortably.
    our passing game is getting better, and we played swansea off the park for long periods.
    although steven taylor can take the kudos of being our best defender, it is our achilles heel.
    we just dont defend as a unit, and i dont know how we were better last season, and abysmal this term.
    cisse missed a couple of sitters, and gouffran should have done better with his effort.
    if we were more clinical in front of goal, we could have won this game, frankly we should have won this game easily.

  6. michael 12, those latest purchases have made us look more like something approximating a team.

    Too be fair though Michael, one of the oldest cliches in football is “don’t change a winning team,” and though we haven’t won every Premiership game with the new players, we had won three out of four Premiership games until yesterday.

    “if we were more clinical in front of goal, we could have won this game, frankly we should have won this game easily.”

    I see you had your black and white spectacles on when you watched the game Joe! It was 50/50 and they had been more clinical, they could have scored earlier too. The Prince of Denmark summed the game up perfectly in his post match interview above, and also below:

    “Newcastle were better in the second-half. They had two or three very good chances, but they had the same problem as us in that they didn’t score when their players were at their best. It was probably only going to be one goal that decided the game and fortunately it was ours.

    “You have to give credit to Newcastle. They are a much better team than the one we played in November. They have signed some good players and there are others coming back from injury. Yoan Gouffran is dangerous and Yohan Cabaye is a player I like a lot. I think they can go on and do well in the Europa League.”

  9. worky, the first 20 minutes they should have done us over, but i think we bossed it, in the 2nd half.
    there’s a marked improvement in our style of play, which is encouraging, and there was a lot less hoofing it.
    being the away side i think we had chances, with better finishing, would have knocked the stuffing out of swansea, and went on to win the game.

  10. To repeat the old cliche, dont change a winning side, is nonsence.
    One should instead pick horses for courses, unless you think, playing against an Arsenal or Liverpool side is the same as playing against a Stoke or West Ham team.
    Duh !

    Well, lookee here now, y’all. Major Kong’s back again to lecture us on his theories of DEE-FENCE and OFFENCE.

    You have no clue, seppo. Other than what you’ve cribbed elsewhere, you tragic old fraud.

  12. I guess i really must have upset you Darth….
    As you are still pretty wound up, hey just relax and lighten up before you blow a gasket.

    Missed the game, outta town, but will catch it to-night via a re-broadcast.

    But not worried as our manager “wor Allan” stated he’s not concerned about relegation as we are too good to go down.
    Hope wor Mike feels as confident, as i would’nt like to be in Pardews shoes if we do go down.
    Could possibly have an affect on that eight year deal?
    I seem to recall most felt the same way back when the other wor Allan, was in charge.

    From what i garner from reports, it was a game dominated by Swansea for the first twenty five minutes, then Newcastle (i hate to use that dumbass name toon) gained the upper hand.
    So much for the “nowhere cup” winning side who beat the mighty Bradford.
    Hell after beating a revived Necastle, Laudrup is now definitely flavour of the month, with Barca and RM no doubt fighting over his signature, yeah right !

    Just watched the Arsenal vs Spurs, North London derby, not a bad game, but Wenger is skating on thinner ice, every game, especially by losing to Spurs.
    Could it be the end of the road for him ?
    Awfull defense.
    But the difference was Bale.
    It’s been said Spurs are about to offer him one hundred and thirty grand a week (break the bank) but i’m sure he will be offered much more elsewhere, so Spurs can just forget him and grab as much as the can.
    But the win may solidify their chances at a spot in the top four, moving them seven points clear of Arsenal and two above Chelsea.

  13. Seems the great man management credentials, credited to Pardew are a fiment of the NUFC PR dept.
    Not satisfied with getting Colocinni’s pissed off, he now gets on arguably our most talented player, telling the public he’s not doing enough to complete his rehab.
    Then decides though he has no intention of curbing Santon’s attacking forays, that he’s not doing the job defending ?
    Whatever that means, may as well not have said anything, in that case.
    Seems man management is becoming a bit puuzzling these days.

    “I guess i really must have upset you Darth….
    As you are still pretty wound up, hey just relax and lighten up before you blow a gasket.”

    Hey(!), chuck. I find you disgusting. Even for a seppo. But this is a written medium (y’all) so there’s little chance of anyone ‘blowing a gasket’.

    You really should go the way of all trolls but, for reasons I can’t fathom, worky tolerates you (when, I guess no one else will, even on your side of the pond).

  15. <<<<<<<<<<<< has just noticed this russian side we playing on thursday has bloomin astro turf.Haveing played on astro turf meself would not even think of risking ben afra on thursday there

  16. <<<<<<<< will think that pards is off his head if he plays afra, will be an injury waiting to happen, played on astro turf meself and its like going down on 1 of them cheap nylon carpets took skin off me hands knees and hip playing on that stuff

  17. TOONARMYELITE: It’s going to be really difficult from just about every aspect you can think of. They’re second favourites for the whole thing, aren’t they (I read that somewhere but can’t find it now)? and they’re used to playing on that crappy surface.

    We need to put our best team out from all available players just to have a chance of advancing. I don’t think he’ll do that, and I think Ben Arfa might not get a game after all. If only we’d gotten a result yesterday, that would have taken some of the pressure off selection, I suppose.

  18. DarthBroon play on that stuff and its a very big ouch and think that stuff should be banned meself, geting a result there is going to be a big ask in my opion

  19. <<<<<<<< will be over the moon with a draw meself then get them back to st james

    “Hey(!), chuck. I find you disgusting. Even for a seppo.”

    Howay Darth, there’s no need for that, not all Shermans are like Chuck. Most of the ones I’ve known have been very nice, and the ones on here (with one possible exception) are very nice too. We should never generalise about anyone from anywhere.

    Don;t forget, there are also a few Geordies who full of shite too. ;-)

  21. Dark Broon

    Yes a memorable scene from on of my favorite directors Stanley Kubrick.
    As you probably are aware thats Slim Pickins, in the role riding the bomb.
    Which kind of confirms a theory i have about some of the worst actors, especially hollywood actors.
    Where i believe if given the perfect role they can turn in great performances.
    For instance Victor Mature playing Victor Mature in “After the Fox” with Peter Sellers, Tony Curtis in “Sweet Smell of Success”, Hal Hollbrook in “Into the Wild” and of course Slim Pickens.
    But i’m sure this will probably not interest you, as you obviously cant get by your anger.
    You should watch that, not good for a lotta reasons.

  22. Worky.

    I know. I shouldn’t have posted it. There’s been some proper decent chaps from across the pond posting here (still the case). I often think HE must make them WINCE with embarrassment.

    I’ll try and remember that when the next “wha, back where ah cum frum” salvo arrives ;)

  23. Thats ok Worky, i’m perfectly capeable of defending myself,
    On the other hand i suppose i’m the only one on the blog that insults people.
    If you care to check, you will find i’m more the subject of insult than the deliverer.
    Not without reason at times, i should add.

  24. did any of the guys hear that dyer dude scream when caybeye tackled him yesterday was expecting the dude geting up minus a leg the meal he made of it lmao :)


    I heard it alright. They showed the tackle in slomo three or for times – it was a tackle from behind sure enough, but there was no “scissors” as one of the heads said, and no actual kick. So I reckon the jessie was howling in TERROR!

    The mics were picking up plenty of chatter from the pitch and the benches yesterday, I thought. It was unusual.

  26. I thought that too. I think Tiote had gotten to him a bit earlier as well, and he wasn’t liking the attention.

    In any case, it didn’t do him any good because the ref had the yellow out in his hand all the time he was arguing with Cabaye and a couple of the Swansea players.

  27. Chucky: you are not perfectly capable of defending yourself. You sometimes get abusive as I know and Jack72 knows.

    You make a lot of sense about half the time and are interesting to read when you are not arguing.

    But then again, I have never had an original thought, wear a replica shirt to watch our matches and have been known to call NUFC “the toon”, but not often because “the toon” was always the city itself when I was growing up.

  28. And Chuck: who were you cheering for yesterday at Wigan? They are both managers of the modern school as you say, but one has vastly superior resources.

    It would be interesting to see what Martinez could do with our squad.

    My opinion is that Pardew only does well when he lets the players get on with it. They say Rodgers is football’s David Brent but I think Pardew is. We do OK despite his bullsh*t and not very often because of it.

  29. GS says:
    March 3, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    They say Rodgers is football’s David Brent but I think Pardew is.

    GS, give yourself a treat. Click on the link below and scroll down until you find the find the pictures the self help slogans Pardew prints up and clags on the walls at Benton. The one about “blame” is truly stupefying, bearing in mind that it comes from Brent Pardew. The other one is rather ironic too bearing in mind it comes from Pardew.


  30. Worky: it is just meaningless cr@p. It does show that we have an A/V room which you know I have had doubts about.

    He should put up:

    “Winning isn’t everything it is the only thing.”


    “Football isn’t life or death, it is more important than that”

    I don’t know if Shankly said one and Lombardi the other but they are both a hell of a lot better than Pardew’s shyte.

  31. GS says:
    March 3, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    “Worky: it is just meaningless cr@p”

    “It’s not all about blame, we are all accountable.”

    That one doesn’t even make sense, it’s self contradictory nonsense surely?

    If people are “accountable,” then it IS about blame.

    Shankly’s full quote was:

    ‘Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.’

    His version if the thing that Yank gadgie said was ‘If you are first you are first. If you are second you are nothing.’

  32. GS, this is the one that Pardew should pin up on his own office wall

    “Losing on the other hand, really does say something about who you are. Among other things it measures are: do you blame others, or do you own the loss? Do you analyze your failure, or just complain about bad luck?”

    It was that Yank who rode his bike on drugs.

  33. Worky @38 says:

    “It was that Yank who rode his bike on drugs”

    By that I assume you mean Chuck.

    The quote was by someone else. I am guessing Jack K, or Hunter S. Thompson or Sting (he’s a Yank, right).

  34. At least the Yank who rode his bike on drugs was not the first one, that was the British guy who killed himself Simpson, whereas the Yank, only won races.
    For the most part against others who were doing the same thing, thats using the same drugs, not winning.

  35. Watched a re -run of the game last night, not a bad game to watch, we are slowly improving.
    First five minutes or so we started out like gangbusters, then gradually took our foot of the gas and ended up defending desperately, for about twenty minutes.
    We then upped the work rate and dominated play for the rest of the game, more or less.
    Of course the final score was never a reflection of play.
    A poorly organized defence was awful to watch, with only Taylor playing well, throwing his body around, blocking shots, clearing the ball from the goal line and giving their goalie a bit of roughing at the other end.
    If he continues to play lke he has, there should be a call coming his way from Woy.
    Our problem was for the most part a poorly organized defence, yeah we are great going forward with both Santon and Debuchy, but the back four have to get on the same page, they are not called defenders for nothing.
    I liked what i saw with both Sissoko and Gouffran, to gether with Cisse and Cabaye they played some nice football, plus Tiote apart from a few poorly judged tackles,looked better with his distribution.
    He just has to pick his hit’s better.
    Again, i believe Marveaux with his pace, passing ability and eye for goal, would have been a better choice than Jonas.
    Hell with four defenders , plus Tiote and Cabaye, do we also need a defensive winger.
    That was our main problem, poor finishing, we couldda had four or five goals if we had’nt wasted the amount of opportunities available.
    But it was not all bad, organize the defence, work on the quick counter breakouts and finishing, that plus set pieces and we will get decent results, as the horses are here, we just have to utilise them properly.

  36. Yeah read that, apparently 62% of those voting had no problem with WONGA, in one poll.
    Course we take these results on faith.
    The other wanted to know would we prefer to be relegated but win our European cup tournament, whatever they are calling it this week ?
    Or not win (which we wont)and survive the drop.
    Dumb and dumber.
    Why cant we do both, survive the drop plus win the cup.

  37. Looking at the number of votes cast, for the recent signings.
    The total votes are 500 cast.
    Did you intend to allow more than one vote per individual, or intend only one vote.
    Actually as time passes and we see more of our new players perform, a continuing series of votes could be a better indicator, than an early choice, based on few games.

  38. 1 vote every 1 should get whats point if peeps can vote more than once ya dont get a true reading

  39. It in my opinion is a dumb poll with only one obvious answer.
    What i want to know is why the reason for so obviously
    worded a poll.
    Are we being prepared for a quick exit from Europe ?

  40. <<<<< thinks there could be a debate about it in the dressing room maybe there way of finding out what the fans really want

  41. On the contrary, based on just one or two games, one can make choices they regret.
    Whereas after viewing a larger number of games, peoples minds may change, therefor a continuing number of votes is a better indicator of choice.
    For instance if you consider, having a vote for player of the year, after just five games, as opposed to the entire season
    It’s obvious the second choice would be based on more available information.
    Am i confusing you ?

  42. going down would be a complete disaster to me even if we won the cup bigger teams would be all over us trying to nick our better players and a bigger chance of undoing all the hard work in players recruited

  43. Peple usually have an agenda when the put out a poll.
    So what’s the agenda ?
    I suggest everyone vote like i did for relegation and winning the whatever cup, just to cause confusion.
    It could be about what will the reaction be if we loose and are eliminated, possibly by playing a weakened side.
    I suppose they dont want another Brighton-like re-action.
    Who the hell knows, anyway i suggest eveyone vote in favor of relegation, if you want to see a decent side fielded in Pussia.

  44. Cause everyone knows what Ashley’s choice is, those five billion quid revenues over the next three years.

  45. @Chuck whats the whatever cup bud, finds it hard to believe a newcastle surporter would not know what cup we still in

    March 4, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    “going down would be a complete disaster to me”

    Toon, if Ashley gets us relegated for a second time, we should flay him alive at the very least.

    March 4, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    “amazed to see 10 per cent of the toon army proper idiots according to that vote”

    Toon, since Ashley took over, he drove Keegan insane, drove his successor to a heart attack, got us relegated, sacked Hughton after he saved the club and brought us Graham Carr, covered our stadium with awful, tacky signs for free, renamed it the “Sports Direct Arena”, increased the debt, has lied to us constantly thorugh his mouthpiece, still has us in 15th place well over five years after taking over the club and finally, will be plastering “Wonga” on our shirts next season. Yet somehow, he has persuaded far more than 10% of fans to be grateful to him for some bizarre reason.

    And you say that you’re “amazed” that only 10% of our fans are “proper idiots”? :-)

  48. Hey, who gives a rats ass what they call it, the fairs cup, cup winners cup, UEFA cup, Champions cup, Milk Coup Whtever Swansea just won cup.
    Who in their right mind keeps track, we aint gonna win it anyway so why bother.
    Other than the Champions cup, that used to be the european cup, neither the Fa cup or any other cup means anything, anymore.
    They are meaningless, just another football game, we have become jaded, enured, whatever.

  49. Nah!
    Ashley aint that dumb, he went out and bought insurance against relegation and did it in no time.
    He was’nt about to leave it in the hands of Al and Derick, not with the the future dosh involved.
    Probably got to-gether with Carr and asked what would insurance cost and who should we buy.
    Everyone thinks Pardew nominated our five buys, i’m willing to bet he was completely out of the loop on the deals.
    Not to say he was unhappy, when they arrived, possibly a bit miffed, not being consulted, but happy and what manager would’nt be.
    Nice christmas gift.

  50. Chuck are you really a mackem/Troll.in disguise. You often seem to be on the verge of making a good point like, like a alcoholic with a moment of clarity and then revert to non-sensical ramblings. I just cant take you serious. No matter what happens you find fault and seem to genuinely believe you’d do a better job than Pardew. You garner as much respect as a catholic priest on here from other users and i have my doubts that you’ve ever even kicked a ball. I dont know if its your writing style or general negative attitude but sort it out please. You do my box in. As ive said previous go buy some cialis or something

  51. Simple
    Do you really take all of this so serious ?
    And enough with the insults OK !

  52. Actually, played untill my early forties, coached and as a fifteen year old was offered a role with what was then known as the “N’s” the nufc nursery team of under 17’s.
    But i was more into time trials and mass start cycling at the time, people like Louis Bobbet and Coppi were my heros.
    I recall the early Tour of Britain passing through Newcastle around 1954 if i remember right, it was one of the stages.
    The following day i was at the start, just above St. James’ Park it was and watched the teams preparing for the start.
    I had built my own bike from the frame up and can still list everything from South of France handlebars Brooks B17 saddle, GB brakes, Simplex four speed gears with a double chain wheel.
    27″ by 1-1/4″ wheels and high pressure tyres, was quite the business.
    You have no idea!

  53. Well can’t waste anymore time here, a late lunch, followed by Villa and Citeh, with a few Amstels to lubricate things.
    Looking forward to the MU vs RM game to-morrow, should be interesting.

  54. Chuck says:
    March 4, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    “I had built my own bike from the frame up”

    Chuck, I had a friend who did that once. He was cycling nuts and spent thousands on building up a bike from a proper racing Peugeot frame. You could lift the whole thing easily with a little finger when it was finished. A few days after he’d finished it he took it out the same day Germany knocked England out of Euro 96 on penalties. He locked it up for a few minutes and by the time he got back, a disgruntled England fan had kicked it until the frame was like a boomerang.

  55. Darth, that’s cynical, but so is turning SJP into a giant advert for Sports Direct when Sports Direct are hugely undercutting the club shop on replica shirts.

  56. Disgruntled eh?
    Is that British understatement ?
    Appears he was a far cry from being gruntled.

    Aye, I would describe you as “disgruntled” too Chuck. ;-)

    will give ya he sacked hughton and drove keegan insane bit, but can ya prove the heart attack would not of happened anyway lol harsh :) and ashley did not get us relegated the players did :(

  59. @ workyticket i know its an easy mistake to make but that big fat wobbly dude ya saw was mark viduka not mr ashley :)

    March 5, 2013 at 11:04 am

    “but can ya prove the heart attack would not of happened anyway lol harsh :) ”

    Toon, if you were a cardiologist and you had a old patient who was overdue for a heart bypass, would you have made them manager of Newcastle United during that season? :-)

    Aye, a little dramatic license there perhaps.

    “and ashley did not get us relegated the players did”

    Toon, we had five managerial changes in one season in the world’s toughest league thanks to Ashley. Two of those managers had been out of management for several years, one had never managed in any capacity before let alone a team at the top level and one had only ever been an assistant manager at that stage. None of the proper ones would touch us with a bargepole as everything else at the club was in turmoil too. Under those circumstances, it would have been more surprising if we hadn’t been relegated.

  61. @ workyticket do you rember what all the tv experts said we were to good to go down so i blame the players meself :)

    March 5, 2013 at 11:41 am

    “@ workyticket do you rember what all the tv experts said we were to good to go down”

    Well they were full of shit then and didn’t have the benefit of hindsight. They’d never such a big club being run so badly for a long while with (as I wrote before) five managerial changes in one season. You can’t do that so many times. The players don’t know if they’re coming or going. It was a car crash and though some players didn’t cover themselves in glory, they needed consistent leadership in such a competitive league.

  63. It is Roberto Carlos though Toon, he can be cocky if he wants to. I wouldn’t like a kick in the knackers from him with those thighs of his.
