A week in the life of Newcastle United (includes extended Liverpool highlights).

Posted on December 12th, 2010 | 39 Comments |

Another turbulent week in the life of fickle Newcastle United, with a return to the usual farce in the shape of the pointless sacking and appointment of yet another manager in the hunt for that ever elusive instant success at Sid James’s Park. Here is the week on video, including extended match highlights from Saturday’s victory over Liverpool, interviews with new manager, Alan Pardew, an interview with captain, Kevin Nolan, and more.

Extended match highlights video and post match interviews with Alan Pardew, Roy Hodgson, who was so angry and frustrated with Newcastle’s victory that he tried to scatch his own face off at one point, and an interview with Kevin Nolan.

New manager, Alan Pardew’s first press conference, where he speaks on overcoming “resentment” of players and how all his colleagues seem to think he is “mad” for accepting the job at the Premiership pariah. How about “desperate”, Alan?

Extended version of Pardew’s first post match interview where he speaks on his first days as Newcastle’s manager.

Extended version of Kevin Nolan interview, where he explains that the team are right behind Alan Pardew, amongst other things.

Also check out Toonsy’s excellent match report of the Liverpool game if you haven’t already.

  1. I knew you’d be on this Worky, which is why I left it :)

    I’ve heard a rumour that Hodgson has got the boot from Liverpool 8O

    It wont be long mate, If they dont beat fulham and Blackpoo God help him. And thats by no means a given the way they are playing. Their defence are like statues and torres sucks big time at the mo. He probably should and normally would have scored those 2 chances yesterday.

    :D

  3. Beardsleys-Given Fulham’s knack of drawing it just makes Blackpool even more important. If they slip up there, Woy better be worried.

  4. “Another turbulent week in the life of fickle Newcastle United, with a return to the usual farce in the shape of the pointless sacking and appointment of yet another manager in the hunt for that ever elusive instant success at Sid James’s Park”….

    pity to put a negative spin on an emotion filled but nevertheless great 3-1 win over Liverpool. Over 50K in the stadium for a televised game…immense !!

    At times Pardew looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights…what a week !. Cannot see him scratching his face off though like Hodgson…the poor guys in a real bad way by the look of things.

    Sid James Park….aye right..

    “Worky I take it Pardew isn’t on your xmas card list”

    I don’t think that he’s a bad manager, just a mediocre one. I just didn’t like the way that he tried to mislead the fans on his first day in the job amongst other things. I’m also very disappointed to see Newcastle United reverting to type.

    “pity to put a negative spin on an emotion filled but nevertheless great 3-1 win over Liverpool. Over 50K in the stadium for a televised game…immense !!”

    I’m sorry Munich, I’m not a shallow person who is easily impressed, so I tend to see things in the longer term.

  7. Telegraph saying Barton may be in trouble on Monday for making an obscene gesture to Torres. For f***s sake! Who noticed? Who was upset – Torres’s nursery teacher?
    I predicted FA action on an earlier blog – but it was tongue in cheek!
    I give up on the FA if they follow this one up – it’s OK to break someone’s leg but looking at them the wrong way will probably be next on the list of capital crimes!

  8. FFS! its abit onesided as we cant see what torre said to JB to start him off.
    Very funny tho when he grabs his old man and gives torres verbal.
    Would be about right for the FA to take inappropriate action against him tho.
    feckin spivs
    :(

  9. Worky the one light that I can see now is that MA has no more excuses Pards is his man that he picked himself.
    So that should mean that we have stability but then do’s MA know what that is.
    But I do believe that he was lined up before CH got shafted, but I think that is the normal way as it would be a bit stupid (ala BSA) if he got shot of CH without having someone lined up. I guess that is the ugly side of the game :(

  10. we’re all entitled to our opinion Worky…

    whats fickle about Newcastle United ?

    I assume you mean fickle owners, or fickle fans ?…..you’re talking about my team after all.. 50K in the stadium doesn’t seem too fickle, and a 3-1 win against any Liverpool side including Fernando Torres is not too bad..

    shallow person… ?

  11. 6699-If you didn’t see it, he grabbed his balls and said something to Torres. Torres then had a right little radgie and started marching towards Barton in an effort to retaliate. If you did see it however, you’ll know there was nowt to it.

  12. If Barton get’s charged for this it’s really pathetic…
    Barton seemed to be calming things down before Torres moved in and started winding HIM up…

  13. well roads clear so will get my opp this time catch you lads hopefully in a few days,toonsy/worky try to keep the three musketeers in check batty,dave and richie,laters :)

  14. Munich-Exactly. Barton played on not realising there was an injury. He was surrounded by bin dippers the moment he stopped running and tried to explain to 3 or 4 of them he didn’t realise a player was down. Lucas was visibly in his face until Barton obviously apologised and managed to calm him down. Then Torres got involved, there was a verbal altercation between those two, instigated by Torres and Barton is to be investigated? Pathetic.

  15. Ice… hope all goes well mate……… and they manage to seperate you from your wallet safely :lol:

    seriously mate all the best.

  16. Aye all the best Ice. Sure you’ll be back on here providing us with your “pearls of wisdom” in nee time! ;)

  17. Oh, we have a new thread.

    Every football fan in the world is fickle. After a few wins nobody will remember Hughton. That’s footie I’m afraid.

    Personally I like the cut of Pardews jib, even if its bollox, he’s positive and keeps the fans in the loop.

    Hughton was rather boring in that respect.

    Dave, I was referring to when he tried to make people believe that he had to step into the breach to save Andy Carroll from being sold, which was obvious BS, then he tried to evoke sympathy by suggesting that the players would resent him and that he would have to struggle to sort that out. That was insulting to players, especially so as he hadn’t even met them all at that stage. The other thing is probably true, but we’re not absolutely certain of that.

  19. Worky – That’s your interpretation of what he said. The fact that you’re pretty much in a minority of one in interpretating his words like that would suggest you’re wrong and rather bitter that ‘your man’ was given the boot.

    Only time will tell if we’ve missed out on a great manager, there’s no certainties in football.

    “Every football fan in the world is fickle.”

    Stuart, I was referring to the club, not the fans. That’s why it has been such a spectacular failiure in recent decades, and it never seems to learn from it’s mistakes.

    “Worky – That’s your interpretation of what he said. The fact that you’re pretty much in a minority of one in interpretating his words like that would suggest you’re wrong and rather bitter that ‘your man’ was given the boot.”

    Stuart, I have been in a minority of one many times, but people usually see what I mean in the fullness of time. It’s the curse of being more intelligent and perceptive than most. I’d rather be in a minority of one than just blindly follow the herd like yourself.

  22. Stu every manager walks a tightrope mate we all know that, but its the underhanded manner of the sacking/appointment/lies/bollox from our wonderful owner that boils the p1ss.
    Whatever happened to the “left by mutual agreement” thing that often gets put out.
    Not cashley’s way that tho. sacking and public humiliation, backstabbing and plotting.
    We’re not all as thick/stoopid as he would like to think.
    And he’s not that clever either.
    Nasty malicious way to treat a loyal honest hardworker.
    pah, scum. end of.

  23. Worky – I’ve never been accused of following the herd before! That’s a first. Especially considering all the battles I’ve had on here!

    But hey ho…

    I agree Stuart, he seems a good communicator, but at times during his interviews he looks a little shell-shocked. Probably needs to grow into the position, with all the stress it brings with it.

    Worky, I agree with the underhand dealings of MA and his cronies, the sacking of CH ws horrendous bad crack, but the blokes bothered about nowt, we have the owner we have.

    I was so pleased and relieved that we beat the scousers, and put 3 more points in the chest. For a stabilising first season, it’s been pretty unstable so far !

    Pardew talks the talk, time will show if he can hack it or not…
