    a wins a win, but pardew is still a clueless tosser, who should be relieved of his post, A.S.A.P!.
    we were cruising in that game, okay the penalty shook us up, but where the hell are this blokes brains?
    what should have been a comfortable nights work, turned into a game, we could have threw the points away.
    as soon as he starts to meddle with the side, it spells disaster, he’s a complete liability, it has to be said!

    The penalty was weak-but it’s beyond me why Debuchy gets that close to a guy on the edge of the box with his back to goal and the ball running away. Agbonlahor played him like a fiddle, predictably. That’s the sort of situation in which Simpson is better-he’s very good at just giving the guy the outside, where there is no real threat.

    Without AP holding this squad back, I wonder how many matches like this would have ended 4/5-0 to the Toon. He looks at that squad for and decides to include Jonas & Perch, leaving out Anita and the (presumably injured again?) Marveaux. It’s poor decision making, bad man management and feels like he doesn’t know how to use the squad he’s got. Deja vu all over again…

    “we were cruising in that game, okay the penalty shook us up, but where the hell are this blokes brains?”

    Joe, the thing is that we were playing two teams in that game, the one that played the first half and the one that played the second.

    Villa were absolutely awful for the first 45 minutes with their 5-3-2 formation. Sometimes it’s worked and sometimes it’s blown up in their faces seemingly, and yesterday evening was certainly the latter. When Lambert tried it against Chelsea, that was when they were hammered 8-0!

    So whatever our merits in that half, we were flattered somewhat as Lambert’s latest experiment with 5-3-2 floundered, something which he changed at the break to good effect. Hence, the only real game was the one in the second half.

    There was no doubt about the penalty tunyc, but yes, it was stupid and Debuchy has been a wreckless liability so far.

    It seemed to me that our midfield stopped working AS a midfield in the second half.

    They just reverted to being a bunch of players who charged forward when the ball was hoofed forward, and charged back into and around our box when we lost the ball.

    I’m assuming this was their interpretation of some kind of plan. We’ve still got Pardew in charge, and that’s still a problem.

    At the risk of gannin’ on about it Darth, it was also a case of Villa’s midfield NOT working in the first half.

    A bit of fun here. We’re all fond of having a go at the unspecial one, but we’ve had some right duffer managers in the past. Who would you rate as the worst manager we’ve had over the last 30 years or so. For those who don’t know the list (and taking out managers who stood in for a couple of matches), we have:

    Arthur Cox
    Jack Charlton
    Willie McFaul
    Jim Smith
    Osvaldo Ardiles
    Kevin Keegan
    Kenny Dalglish
    Ruud Gullit
    Sir Bobby Robson
    Graeme Souness
    Glenn Roeder
    Sam Allardyce
    Joe Kinnear
    Chris Hughton
    Alan Pardew

    I remember Ardiles as being a particularly bad manager, but I’d have to plump for Big Sam as being the worst.

    worky-it’s a legit penalty as Debuchy clearly steps on his foot. That’s a foul and a penalty. Agbonlahor, however, is clearly playing for the penalty as soon as he goes after that ball. I’ve definitely seen that not given in the PL (usually at OT when it would have gone against MU in the second half…). On another topic, you seem to be of the opinion that the lads played equally well in both halves last night. Have I interpreted that correctly?

    For me, the worst manager in recent memory is AP, just edging Souness.

    Pete, if you put aside caretakers who were only in charge for a few games, statistically at least, it was Ossie Ardiles. We were bottom of the old second division when he was a manager and you can’t really compare those days at all to Allardyce when we were in the Premiership.

    I always had alot of time for old Arthur Cox. Keegan worked under some very great managers as a player, but I still think he took a lot of Cox’s attacking, buccaneer style into his “Entertainers.”

    worky, that’s the problem with pardew, against reading, their manager realised they were getting outplayed, so he changed it.
    lambert changed his formation, and villa improved, pardew hasn’t got a clue how to change things, when it’s going against him.
    i think he should be working on having two different teams, himself, but for what ever reason, he doesn’t have the imagination, to follow it through.

    avatar pete_toon says:

    worky – I remember, well, the old 2nd division days under Ozzie. Big Sam was such a bad man manager, and given the difference in quality of players as opposed to the Ossie days, he should have been better. I nearly went with JK, but SA plumped it for me.

    avatar tunyc says:

    joe-worst part of that against Reading was that the tactics used to ultimately undo us are class Pardew tactics. How could he not see that coming? At least when Jol outfoxed him last season AP could reasonably exclaim “what was THAT?!”

    I don’t think Allardyce was here long enough to get a bead on him. His breathless pursuit of Barton certainly irritated me (still does).

    tunyc, I suppose I’m saying that it’s hard to quantify because as I metioned, it was like they were playing against two different teams in each half. I do know that we were flattered in the first half though, and we weren’t so flattering when Villa started playing.

    For me, it’s either Dogleash – or Ruud Gullit.

    When wor kev left, we still had the semblance of a great side. Within weeks, Kenny had that side in bits – not to mention packed out with his old mates. I always think it of it as something like ripping the engine out of a Porche and replacing it with one out of a tractor.

    As for Ruud Gullit, he disrespected Al, he wouldn’t even give Rob Lee a squad number(!), and he just didn’t get the importance of THE DERBY at all. Not to mention the fact that he was as tactically inept as De’Pardew.

    I once got a lift from a bloke from Spennymoor who had an old Mustang that he’d restored himself. He’d given up trying to get parts for the engine and he’d stuck some big old diesel in there instead. He was telling me all about it but I could hardly hear him over the noise.

    Not the slightest bit bothered about having already gone on a very public rant about the cost of his predecessors signings (and the resultant wage bill) he hijacks the Remy transfer for a club record fee and makes him one of the highest paid players in the EPL.

    Then he complains about people hijacking HIS transfer deals?

    Joe Kinnear was actually a very good manager once upon a time. He kind of did a Pardew in reverse at Wimbledon, ie took them from route one football to stroking the ball around. He was a more deserving winner of the “Manager of the Year” award than the Silver Supremo last season. If things had gone a different way, he could’ve been like his contemporary, ‘Arry.

    Last I heard of the PE Teacher who somehow ended up as manager of Newcastle United, he was a football commentator for Radio Lancashire.

    Aye, he did get us into Europe Pete. In some respects it was a bit like the Glen Roeder story, with a splash of Chris Hughton thrown in because he was the coach who became caretaker, and was then offered the big one.

    All i know is right now we have the worst manager, not only in the EPL, but you can include the championship or whatever they are calling it right now.
    The guy is clearly a case of bullshit baffles brains, he knows nothing about the game.

    Workey sez,
    …”they were not so flattered when Villa started to play”

    Again the story of Pardews life.

    When have we ever played well in the second half of any game, unless you are refering to the Arsenal game, where they lost a man.

    Face it folks, any time we have gone into the second half with a lead, we end up playing (Pardews version of the catenaccio) which is not , absorb the pressure and retaliate with the fast break.

    Simply ten men in our own half, defending.
    C’mon how many times have we seen it apart from Tuesday, where we had three center forwards defending and no one across the halfway line.

    Whats the name of that particular strategy?

    Telling you, the guys a Fcuking nutter !

    Aye, Dinnis was a P.E. Teacher.

    Here we go, Joe.

    “In 1976, when Gordon Lee left for Everton, player power demanded that Richard Dinnis be appointed the new boss, with talks of strike action.. I can still remember pictures on the telly of you, Alan Kennedy and Irvine Nattrass, the local lads…”

    “Aye, they pushed us up front, did Alan Gowling, Tommy Craig and Geoff Nulty. You lads say it, because you’re Geordies. I think Stuart Barrowclough was there. And I think three of us had these fur coats on, outside the door of the director’s office, and we all had the same coat on, because Stuart Barrowclough had been selling them cheap. I was gutted, because stupid Ray Hudson – we knew we were going to do this, to go and make the statement – we wanted Richard Dinnis to have the job, so Rocky told his dad to go down to the bookies, and Richard Dinnis was about 30-1 to be the manager and when Rocky’s dad went in and put the bet on it went down to 5-1. I said you Rocky, you stupid…”

    “So basically, you all wanted Richard Dinnis as manager?”

    “Aye we thought it would be a continuation. But it didn’t work. He didn’t have the personality of Gordon Lee. He was the manager during the European season, and the relegation season- 1977/78.

    “We finished fifth top – I remember I scored two goals against Aston Villa to qualify us for Europe. We beat them3-2, Graham Oates scored as well. The most handsome footballer I’ve ever seen in my life. He was square, the loveliest lad you’ll ever meet, until he went to America, and went off the rails, and left his wife, and anyway… So we qualified for Europe, and started the next season under Richard Dinnis and just faded away. And then we got that f*cking horrible, nasty c*nt of a bastarding f*cking manager.”

    “McGarry?”

    “Aye – McGarry! He was hated. I f*cking hated him. He loved himself. He used to love squash, thought he was great at playing squash, and he says to me “Cannell, do you like squash?” And I says, “Aye with a vodka in it. And I thought, oh well, that’s me finished, I’m going back to America, ta-ra.”

    http://www.blackandwhitedaft.co.uk/site/2012/04/exclusive-paul-cannell-interview-part-1-the-nufc-years/

    Shades of Pardew (as well as Roeder and Hughton), ie 5th one season, then a relegation battle the next. He was actually sacked well before the relegation though. That was shithouse McGarry.

    it brought back memories of a pre-season rangers match, at ibrox, when lee clark was playing.
    clark came over to retrieve the ball, next to the newcastle fans, and a bloke near us, starting shouting, “lee it’s such and such, yer owld mate from pottery bank”, clarky never answered and ignored him.
    the bloke then shouts, “you ignorant c*nt!, that’s the last bag of glue, you’ll ever get off me”, the whole crowd was rolling around laughing.

    True Joe, and with these new signings he has enough rope to do that. IF he can’t succeed, beyond just scraping by, with this new squad, then hopefully he will swing (or at least loose his job). I would imagine he is very conscious of that. I don’t think Mike and Derek like to be jerked around for too long. They can be very nasty, so they tell us…
