  1. pardew go now before your tactics take us down your a fcuking disgrace you dont no what your doing prick

  2. As soon as Marveaux was hauled off we lost all composure. He was picking up the ball and creating. Why oh why do we go on the defensive back foot as soon as we get the lead. Alan Pardew seems to think we can hang on to a 1-0 lead. Although if we buried the first half chances…..

  3. And what highlights would they be !
    Sorry Worky, but there just is no excuse possible for the dross this bloke is asking the loyalest fans in the world to suffer. He got away with murder last season and may well have deserved the accolades he received, but hey, his time is up well and truely. The Sunday league side I helped to run would have given Reading a good work out today. I think it’s time for Ashley to step in and chuck his weight around a bit.
    Whats the point in Carr finding all these good players and Pards being allowed to waste them by lumping the ball over the top of the talent, straight to their keeper. It’s been the same now for the last couple of months and smacks of panic. I would concur with various posts that any other manager who wants to keep the ball on the deck would be preferable to this. I hope to God I’m wrong in my assumptions, but I can see this going only one way.

    Porciestreet, what happened to you? I sent you an e.mail ages back about your ‘blog.

    I did try to warn people what was going to happen.

  5. pardew couldnt manage a frickin hangover we will go down and keep falling if he doesnt do one, however its a mind over matter thing with the almighty fat one, he doesnt mind and we dont matter

  6. turned over to the african cup cape verde could of beat us today! well lets hope west brom do villa otherwise we are 1 place above relegation zone if lose next match could drop to 19th fun times hey lads

  7. Pardew why trying to blame the fans booing second half……what a slimy prick.
    He deserves to by hung at the monument along with Ashley and Owl Heed.

  8. Worky, is it right that 10 defeats in 13 is our worst run in the Premiership?

    Pardew’s done it again if that’s the case after taking West Ham on their worst run for 70 years or so.

    What a guy.

  9. Here’s what fans thought of the performance on Twitta:

    @SteevoToday: Love pardew, but can’t take this anymore. Absolute disaster, not even sure signings will make a difference. We are in big trouble. #nufc

    @LoveNufcJade: PARDEW GET OUT OF OUR CLUB NOW YOU CLUELESS UTTER T**T! #PARDEWOUT #NUFC

    @will24williams: For f***s sake!!! Every Saturday is dog s**t!! #NUFC

    @KevinSchoch: Can we redirect #pardsout please. This man is like a drunk driver at the wheel of an out of control 18 wheeler. #Nufc

    @CHpopadom: F**k sake, imagine being in the Championship with WONGA on our shirts! #NUFC

    @Crowinho: Pardew guilty of some of the most negligent management I’ve ever seen this afternoon. Clueless. #nufc

    @SamRow:I think this could be the end for me and #NUFC. #GiveUp

    @JonnieGorrie: What a joke we are #NUFC

    “Worky, is it right that 10 defeats in 13 is our worst run in the Premiership?”

    I know it’s our worst performance over the first 23 games of a Premiership season, and that Pardew took West Ham to their worst losing run for 70 years Jimbob.

  11. Worky: I know you said it would end up like this but we did OK last year with essentially the same players. I know we were lucky to finish 5th but we played a few good games.

    All that was despite Pardew? You have mentioned the pattern Pardew has had with former clubs where he does well for a while and then it all falls apart.

    What I don’t get is that he seemed to change a bit against Man U and Arsenal and pass and move a bit. We get beat as expected and then he reverts to type and plays bizarre formations, with negative tactics and stupid substitutions.

    Has he lost the dressing room? Does he want to get sacked?

    With the same manager we looked an upper mid-table side last year. Has he been sussed by the other managers? YES, I THINK THAT IS IT. It must be. It works for a while but he has the team play a simple, naïve game and then the other managers get enough tape on his teams and work out a game plan. Pardew is too stupid to adapt so we lose.

    I don’t think it is the players. They still fight and their body language is not defeatist. We have half the French national squad for Gods sake (exaggeration :) )and the purples are all capped for their national teams.

  12. hi lads is there any other managers out there that would work for ashley if so who would u wont to replace no tactics pardew

  13. I am watching Barcelona and their strip is some sort of joke ’80s flashback. Pique just sent off so maybe this might even be a close game?

  14. i think everyone has more or less covered everything, there’s not much to be said.
    pardew lost the game today, his substitutions were woeful, and more or less did for us.
    there can be no excuses for that, but low and behold, he’s just been on sky sports, more or less trying to blame the fans negativity,
    i expect nothing else from this weasel of a man, predictable to say the least, that he would try and blame everyone, but himself.
    ashley has egg on his face again, looks like the bingo caller’s idea, of bringing in the silver dickhead, has backfired.
    PARDEW OUT, with immediate effect, for me,an utterly atrocious excuse for a mamager.
    he should have never been given the job in the first place, he really should have been in this position last year, looks like karma takes it’s time, from time to time, but this was always going to end badly, get him out now, before he does anymore damage!!!

  15. is it too much to ask for this football club to be run properly?
    other clubs do it without too much fuss, this club is more of a farce than,”sir henry at rawlingson’s end”.

    “Worky: I know you said it would end up like this but we did OK last year with essentially the same players. I know we were lucky to finish 5th but we played a few good games.

    “All that was despite Pardew? You have mentioned the pattern Pardew has had with former clubs where he does well for a while and then it all falls apart.”

    No GS, I didn’t say that it was a “pattern,” just that it had happened with Pardew before. I also wrote that it’s a fairly common phenomenon for managers to win the “Manager of the Season” and/or LMA’s “Manager of the Year” (especially the LMA one) then get relegated / almost relegated / fade into complete obscurity the next season.

    You should never just use a snapshot to predict how things will pan out over the long term.

  17. Joe Hawkins: what did he say? He has been given the benefit of the doubt more than any other manager I know. His record lately is probably worse than Steve Kean at Blackburn and look what deserved stick he got.

    I watched the game and the fans were not negative until his substitutions. That’s what they were booing and then there was a resignation in the crowd as we saw the team predictably implode.

    We know the pattern by now.

  18. AP really isn’t a man. No willingness to take responsibility and no balls to attack a game-I commented after their first that we needed to go on attack as 1 point was no good. What does AP do? Send on Bigirimana for Cabaye. So again, to recap: we finish fifth and AP takes the plaudits. We have our worst PL season ever and he blames the fans for not cheering on utter shit. This is why we’re doomed as long as he’s here-that’s the culture he’s brought to the club. He really believes that he’s not responsible for the team when it plays poorly. He’s only responsible when they play well. It’s childish.

  19. As for available managers, who knows-anyone who will get the guys passing and can motivate them will do.

    My kingdom for Chris Hughton.

    “As for available managers, who knows-anyone who will get the guys passing and can motivate them will do.

    My kingdom for Chris Hughton.”

    As I mentioned earlier tunyc, Adkins is a better manager than Pardew. Hughton’s been mugged already.

  21. At least only one person on here has blamed Williamson so far, who was actually our best defender. Debuchy was better than he was in his debut too, though he as picked up his second yellow cards in two games.

    Colo wasn’t at the races at all today and Santon has completely forgotten that his primary task is to defend rather than leaving gaping holes at the back.

  22. Too bad about Cabaye, fabulous goal, even Beckham could’nt bend it any better.
    There’s no doubt he is probably the most important of our players and would certainly be good material for the captaincy.
    But it’s common knowledge, that groin injuries have to be given time to heal.
    It appears that’s not the case here, probably pressured to return before he’s ready.
    This is how careers can be shortened, i say give the guy time.
    IMO he is the glue of this side, who can hold the french contingent to-gether and attract future talent to the club.

  23. Looks like we only have to iron out personal terms with Yanga-Mbiwa (just like Loic Remy) until he signs on the line.

    A new poll on one of the News now sites, has it 75% to 25%, in favor of Pardews departure.
    What were those people thinking?
    Those who want him to stay, that is ?

  24. Worky sez.

    “only one person on here has blamed Williamson so far….

    Yes Worky, by now everyone except you take it for granted and feel it’s hardly worth mentioning he was awful.

  25. Worky: is that physioroom thing on the right accurate? Ben Arfa out for 5 more weeks?

    I wish you would clear and start afresh your Pardew poll so we can compare the feelings now to a month or so ago.

    Maybe The Chronic will update their poll.

  26. Get with the program fellas….the 5 year plan was to get relegated at least twice so we are on track :lol:

  27. Wasn’t able to catch the game, appreciate the highlights.

    What a disaster geez. I still don’t know who is the best replacement. Maybe Adkins like some people have said. Either way, Pardew has got to go.

    He’ll be back sometime next month so it could be GS.

    “What a disaster geez. I still don’t know who is the best replacement. Maybe Adkins like some people have said.”

    Di Matteo is still young, free and single too Brian. It’s hard to know who would put up with Llambias and Ashley though for the Championship level wages they pay.

    As we’ve speculated on here before, it could be Big Ron, Jim ‘Bald Eagle’ Smith or Joe Kinnear (again) knowing Ashley.

  30. di matteo for me or it has to be some one who can get the best from players even then unless we bring in at least 4 players not pep or the special one can turn around what the fat man and his puppet r doing to our great club can some rich arrab please bye out the fat greedy bastar-

  31. Pardew won’t go any time soon. That 8 year contract is a fcuking millstone round our neck. I’m sorely tempted to throw away the season ticket and do something productive like bury myself upside down in horse shit. Oh wait a second, that would be no different to this season.

    “Pardew won’t go any time soon. That 8 year contract is a fcuking millstone round our neck.”

    It isn’t a millstone at all Pete. Like most things at Ashley’s Newcastle, it isn’t what it seems.

  33. It’s only a question of time, before Ashley comes to the conclusion Pardew is not worth the trouble of protecting and it will be easier to throw him under the proverbial bus.
    By now he must realize he is aggravating the majority of his customers, having listened to the booing and watched them leaveing the park in droves, long before the final whistle.
    The fan base at this club is limited enough (catchment area) and he having experienced the drop in attendance during the period in the second tier, even though we played some of the best football in years, and won promotion at a canter.
    The resulting financial situation was a disaster, but nowhere near the disater that would take place if we make the drop again this season.
    Especially considering the enormous expectant increase in PL tv revenue.
    Yes he will i believe have to bring in reinforcements and probably realises he should have strengthened the side last summer.
    We could bring in Messi and Ronaldo but still be relegated as long as Pardew was running the side.
    In which case he has to dump him, for the greater good.
    Yeah! it will be embarrassing especially with him awarding Pardew an eight year contract, but it will only cost him a years actual pay and thats a hell of a lot less than the amount involved with us being relegated.
    I would seriously consider that and begin a search for a real manager and puleez dont involve that idiot
    Lame-ass.

  34. cont.
    Frank Rijkaard
    Though I believe Deschamps, is still the French national Manager.
    All guys i would go after, the rest are tied up by the Oligarchs.
    But there are probably a lot more available and i’m sure theres a slew of choices by others.
    This time Ashley better do his reserch rather than relying on the word of a footballing idiot, as there’s the future of his investmebt at NUFC at stake.

  35. Been thinkin aboot digging me deed cat up recently – not really like – but I’m sure her rotten corpse could do just as good a job as Pardew at the minute!

  36. Thing is. Ashley knows that Pardew is a useful lightning rod. As far as our being a shop window goes, given recent performances, the shop window is Poundland.

    Worse than that Pete, it’s Sports Direct.

    Hoolie, my poor Tiddles (RIP) could do a better job on tactics and substitutions.

  39. Joe, it was a Mackem again. If FarmerG decides to write any more incendiary posts on Mackems I ain’t posting ’em. The grief from the last one was enough.
