Newcastle United vs Sunderland match banter!

Posted on April 14th, 2013 | 120 Comments |

Newcastle United v Sunderland.
Mackems: In trouble.
Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle.
Date: Sun 14th April, 2013.
Kick off: 12.00.
Referee: Howard Webb.
UK TV: Sky Sports.

Well it’s that time again, the time when we simply must beat the Mackems, especially so as it’s our home soil that will be sullied by the visiting vagrants of Wearside, and of course their new Fascist manager, Paolo di Canio.

Di Canio’s fascist past has even made the national news, not to mention topical news shows like “Have I got News for You,” and fans have been told that any Roman saluting at St James’ will ruthlessly stamped out by the local Gestapo, but I daresay there’ll be a few give us a wave Paolo’s being shouted this afternoon.

However, the controversy preceding this match has come from other quarters, most notably the revelation that the Mackems’ Texan owner, Ellis Short, was overheard saying “Why don’t you just f off?” to Magpie Silver Supremo, Alan Pardew, at our last game back in October when Pardew tried to shake Short’s hand. This was probably in response to Pardew’s handbags with Paulo di Canio’s predecessor, Martin O’Neill. Bairns will be Bairns.

However, this hasn’t stopped the usual pre-match mutual appreciation society between Pardew and di Canio, with the latter expressing admiration for the former with a reference to Pardew’s passion, not for player’s WaGs but for football. Referring to Pardew’s exuberant celebration of Cisse’s late winner against Fulham, Il Duce said:

“Alan Pardew izza passionate man. I like him, we donna havva to fight. We saw him celebrate with the fans when Newcastle scored a late winner in the last game against Fulham atta da weekend.

“When I ussa to do this inna League Two atta Swindon, people say: ‘he cannota do this – heesa mad’. But why can’t I, or Alan Pardew, celebrate a goal? As long as you don’ta do anything against da other team, izza fine.”

Meanwhile, Pardew was highly complimentary about this afternoon’s Fascist foe, even comparing him to Eric Cantona. The Grey Gaffer gushed:

“I loved Di Canio as a player. At West Ham and Celtic Paolo did what Cantona did at Manchester United. I just missed Paolo when I managed West Ham but I know that he was out working on the training ground long after the British players had gone.” amongst other things.

So, with all that lovey dovey stuff out of the way, I’d best crack on with my usual reminders that I shall be posting the team sheets soon, along with links to watch the game if you don’t have Sky, as well as post match highlights and a video of the whole game.

So with that I sahll say “Auf Wiedersehen,” but not for long, and not without saying:

Howay the Lads (not “Ha’way the Lads)!

  1. good attacking side,I have a good feeling about today,I am usually cacking myself on derby day.HWTL.

  2. I would reckon he will chuck danny graham up front alone I dont see that much danger in their side

  3. Droopy face’s lad has just said that the scum have “no power no pace no crossing ability and no identity”I think at least they will find some passion today.

    “Is Fletcher playing Worky I thought he was out.”

    Correct Sammy. I divven’t know my arse from my elbow right now after last night with this early game carry on. Sorry.

  5. webb got that one wrong 50/50 ball for taylor and were evens now on handball in the box

  6. Should have stayed in bed for that first half. Pardew better be using the hairdryer right now.

    “Pardew better be using the hairdryer right now.”

    It’s Pardew’s long balls again though, Paul. He should be hairdryering himself.

  8. Jamie Redkapp: “We spoke at the start about Newcastle’s midfield and how they’d would dominate, but there’s no real pattern to their play at all. They just keep lumping it into the box.”

    Yeah all that talent but that’s all our manager knows and wants to do with it. Expect Ameobi soon and some more hoof. May as well not have a midfield.

  9. Worky, he’s probably standing in front of the mirror wondering if he should grow back his beard.

  10. Who plays a 4-2-3-1 with 8 very technical players in the starting line up, and just goes direct and expects straight punts to actually work? Even when we get inside their half we look devoid of what we should be doing. You got a ‘left-winger’ at left-back, a defensive midfielder behind a striker, and a striker on the left wing. Total mess. We’re so shite to watch I’m surprised we’re not in the bottom three now. We have Demba Ba to thank for keeping us out of it so far.

  11. Jamie Redknap talking sh|te on Sky (as usual) about the Gouffran tackle. No way was that deliberate. He was trying to get his foot behind the ball.

  12. I never celebrate Cisse’s goals until at least 10 seconds after just in case. Though that was onside FFS.

    “We did get away with a penalty in the first half though.”

    Probably because the mackems forgot to ask for it. Webb’s given them everything else they’ve stuck their hands up for.

  14. Out of Europe. Out of the derby and fighting against relegation. I’m sure Alan will get it right next season. Didn’t Llambias say he wants him to stay for a further 8 years after we beat Villa and Chelsea?

  15. And don’t forget-they might have had two penalties.

    We should just hand the ball back when we get corners.

  16. Alan pardew needs to pull his finger out and stop playing the same team every week we have a lot of other talant

  17. what a great week…….
    im done with this crap off to get pissed away from any mackems

  18. The “If Only” brigade strike again
    We are just not good enough!! I’m off to do something constructive.

  19. Absolutely pasted at home by the mackems.

    Surely the topic of AP’s job security will come up now?

    “Alan pardew needs to pull his finger out and stop playing the same team every week we have a lot of other talant”

    We might differ over individual players but I really don’t think it’s the team, Jordan, it’s what Pardew’s telling them to do.

  21. This result will kill us. 3-0 at home and as Worky says, could have been more. We’re in big trouble now.

  22. At least I’m in London I suppose. You divven’t even see Mackems here, never mind in Milan.

    3 goals against them at home though. The horror. The horror.

  23. Luckily it was on too early for me to go to the bar to watch it. It was one of those games where they got all their luck at once. They could easily still go down which would be nice.

  24. Wait we have Liverpool and Arsenal at home left. And that’s it. With one away win all season.

  25. Worthyticket I understand what ur saying but pardew is the maim issue at newcastle in my opinion and mike ashley we had a chance to buy seydo doumbia and , mike ashley stupiddly said no and got goufran sissoko and yanga mbwia and hidara

  26. Haven’t felt this low or seen as bad a team in the Premier League since Guillit. Thing is then, he didn’t have the players we have now. Pardew has the best players since Sir Bobby Robson and look what kind of season he’s produced. How he’s still here is beyond me.

    As for the Mackems, that result will keep them up. You watch. We’re only heading in one direction.

  27. We only need 3 more purples and we’re ready to go.
    Yeh right in the Chamionship. We can’t beat them below us what chance those above.Prepare for the worst.This team is more likley to be broken up in the summer.The Newcastle roundabout goes around and around.



  29. What has happened to Sissoko? What has happened to Tiote, Gouffran and Cabaye lately as well come to think of it?

    So many players just went missing it was criminal. I guess all this “we know what the derby means” bollox was just that-bollox.

  30. Jonas? EVEN the “mackem slayer” himself Strolla I barely even noticed he was playing ffs!!!

  31. Have all the other NUFC fans disappeared to top themselves? I seem to be the only one left now. :'(

    yes we need another striker but to criticise them 4 players is ridiculous. They have been exceptional, who would play of mbiwa wasnt here? sissoko and goufran have given us another dimension and haidara, what a player he will become, better then simpson already. overall the most important part, they gave us belief again, without them we probably would doing even worse.

    anyways a simply not good enough shocking result, however i have faith, i know your never too good to go down, but we beat chelsea here, and all our away games are perfectly winnable. we will stay up, reading and qpr down, and someone else in that 18th spot, i hope its wigan, as lets be honest, their shite all they do is the same thing each season, get themselves in a relegation battle then just scrape surviving. how martinez is still their manager is beyond me, he constantly screwed up to get them in a relagation battle every season

  33. AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhh!!!!

    I’ve had enough I’m away to drown me sorrows. :(

    At least we’ll still have the derbies next season though right. Easy 6 point there then eh! :D :(


  34. Pardew’s happened to them GeordieDan. No fcking way can a whole bunch of players be that bad. One or two you can understand, but every single one of them has had any ability they had coached out of them and replaced with this direct hoof nonsense. Just look at Sissoko and Gouffran, both played out of position and have declined rapidly since. Look at our build up play, it’s non existent and our set-pieces are the worst I’ve ever seen from any team. Ever.

    I have no confidence in the manager and I doubt highly the players do either. This man is brilliant at destroying morale and getting teams relegated. We’ve one away win all season, and the only way we pick points up at home but we have Liverpool and Arsenal left.

  35. Worky>

    There’s 14 players and a manager I want to vent my frustration at and unfortunately I can’t do it in person today.

    Cheers for the blog as per usual though mate. Vengance will be even sweeter next season now at least.

  36. it was predictable that even a novice mamager like el duce, would tactically out think alan pardew.
    he said before the game, it was his strongest side, so lets see what excuses he comes up with, as there is bound to be a myriad.
    if he was any man at all, he would hand in his resignation, after the manner of that defeat.
    yes you can blame the players, but this has been coming for a while.
    the tactics, the style of play, the passion, the fight, the heart, are all missing, and have been since towards the end of last season.
    he should have been given the push, months ago.

  37. I await the call for the fans to back us in the next home game.When are they going to deserve it.

  38. The fans backed them 150,000 times this last week. Fcking pathetic. I’m sure he’ll blame the Europa League, or injuries, or tiredness.

  39. if anything good came out of that defeat, is the fact, that some fans who have a blindspot, where pardew is concerned, may now take off the blinkers.
    we may as well let him stay until the end of the season, but he should then be f**ked off!.
    we are not safe yet, and i wouldn’t put it past pardew, to preside over the disaster of relegation.
    the nightmare scenario would be, losing all our better players in a fire sale, and being left to the tender mercies of coca shola, and his brother, and partclew still at the helm talking his usual s**t.

    it’s way past time to cross the rubicon, with this poor excuse, and con man of a manager!

  40. he should be fired out of a cannon, let alone sacked, should deadly dekka.
    i think it was his idea to give mr failure, the gig, in the first place.

  41. Its all been said before you could give Pardew the Barca team and he’d screw it up.There is never going to be the blinding flash of light that miracle that gives him a football brain or even half a one.So what do you do hard as it may seem I would suggest stay away.Let Ashley know enough is enough.

  42. Robinkurosaki
    It’s just amazing that Wigan are still here in the PL, give Martinez the credit he deserves, with what he accomplishes, on the dosh available.
    We should be so lucky to have such a manager, instead of the present bullshitter we got.

  43. Missed the game thank goodness, either was’nt shown on the networks, or was on too early.

    Well look at the positives, just following our defeat of a poor Fulham side, Pardew was talking about climbing up the league, with everything under control, yeah right!

    We actually played good football against Fulham, what kinda Jeckle & Hyde side is this ?

    I know we have got some talented players, how come they can be so bad one week and terrific the next ?

    The positives are we can still survive, plus we get to play Sunderland next season, right!

    The other positive is, Ashley cant be that dumb, that he does’nt get it.

    The fact that if he wants a successful side, he has to dump this chump.

    His use as a yes man, is just not enough to keep him.

    Plus there has to be someone in charge who understands the management role, because to leave all the decisions to Ashley, with the learning curve he is on, we will never win anything, no matter who we buy.

    Hell i would,nt mind Martinez here, but due to the antagonism between he and Whelan, it would never happen.
    But we should be looking hard right now for someone to replace Pardew.

    I back up what i say with the fact, Ashley screwed up by being cheap, thinking because we overachieved last season this side would survive without spending.

    Well he panicked by Christmas, (quite rightly) going out and strengthening the side to the tune of bringing in five decent players and understands that if we are to challenge for anything we will have to both dump a few and replace them, with more talented players, come the summer window.

    But why he is so stubborn on realising the biggeast problem is Pardew, hey! i dont get it.

  44. Worky
    Your description of how DiCanio spoke was a bit non PC,
    (yeah it’s really not considered cool or funny, to insult peoples accents) after all how good is your Italian , would you consider Italians sniggering at your pronunciations as PC ?
    As for harping on about his Fascism, is getting old too, let it go.
    The guys a character and is good entertainment, plus he will bring a bit of emotion to what was under M.O,N. a spiritless side lacking emotion.

    Then says

    “Chelsea Vs Man. Citeh now on”

    Not just a pompous pr|ck, but a pompous hypocritical pr|ck.

    And don’t get him started about the Germans.

    Chuck, “Poltically Correct” is an awful term which originally comes out of the world of Bolshevism and Maoism. It was a totalitarian phrase used by people who think they have the right to dictate what others may and may not say. Hence, I have no time for it.

  47. Darth Broon
    Very perceptive there Darth, not quite the morononic
    image you normally project.

  48. Worky
    To a degree that’s true, but thats no excuse for your diatribe concerning DiCanio.
    I mean where do you draw the line.
    With the fact The UK is now a multi-racial society, one would expect a bit more sensitivity, especiall as you being the moderater here, gives others the understanding poor taste is acceptable.

    Ever the cocky, illiterate windbag. Digging a mile wide pitfall for yourself before diving in head-first.
