  1. When is Ryan Taylor back?We almost have a fully fit squad with very decent players,actually making the effort in games.Love it…just love it..htl!!!

  2. really enjoyed tonights game we played well also passing the ball and not alot of hoof until the end looks like we will be facing anzhi or whatever they called thats a hard match they spent big but a win on against the saints puts us about 13th so if we win things are looking up!

    sissoko is a beast top player haidara looked good mbiwa is solid much better than iron mike we spent well unlike chelsea with torres ahving a perfect game…… left foot miss right foot miss headed miss too!

  3. great result that was.some good sides went out tonight but still some rally good ones left in.wonder if De Jong is regretting signing for B Monchingladbach n not us now as they went oot tonight.mind we still need a striker desprately..Anhzi r not a bad team,also have a world class manager at the helm..would be nice to beat them n secure a place in quaters.
    Howay the lads.

  4. Don’t know who the tosser is who is writing on the BIGPOND thread, but to say we were” under the cosh ” for the majority of the game, shows a touch of bias and a shitload of really lazy journalism. Get your facts right you pleb or get yourself a propper job.

    “Anhzi r not a bad team,also have a world class manager at the helm”

    They have some world class players as well Jack, though more in midfield and attack than defence perhaps. Eto’o’s only about the same age as Shola, ie not quite a completely over the hill fossil yet, and Willians (not the one tonight but the top one) cost them about 30 million euros. Then there’s players like Lacina Traoré, Yuri Zhirkov and several others. Overall it should be a very even matching though (apart from the managers).

    Isn’t that Australian Porciestreet? I thought Chris Waddle went too far the other way this evening on ESPN and that the truth was somewhere in the middle. We deserved one nil and we deserved one nil last time too (if it wasn’t for that friggin’ linesman!)

  7. Worky @ 10
    And the whistle happy little Hitler in the middle don’t 4get. I think Chris Waddle has gone too far towards the Spuds camp lately and the only thing Geordie about him these days is his accent. Also, a little known fact about our Chrissy, he probably would never have played for the Toon had I not had a word with Jackie Milburn @ the time Chris was @ Tow-Law and suggested th@ he be given a trial . So much water under the bridge. !

  8. still early days in the europa league. some good sides left in the last 16 but i still think our strikers need to improve, mainly cisse! hopefully the game against southampton will move us up the table. goufron back and ben arfa and we are solid in attack. i know cisse had 2 disallowed goals but his forms no where near as good as last year

    Howay Shola, you just want his starting place every week! Nice penalty BTW, shame you missed out on the chance to win the African Cup though. ;-)

    I thought you were gannin’ to write about all that stuff one day. I still have your old piece but you never got back to me about it so I didn’t know what to do. Do you still want me to publish it?

    Chrissy may have moved too close to Spurs, but at least he’s moved away from the mullet. .

  11. Workyticket says “Overall it should be a very even matching though (apart from the managers).”

    In which case Worky, if we win the tie, will you be willing to eat your words and review your consideration of Pardew?

  12. Paul, that’s the daftest thing you’ve ever written. When Newcastle United beat Manchester United 3-0, did that make Alan Pardew a better manager than Alex Ferguson? Are Stevenage a better side than Newcastle United because they beat us the last time they played us?

  13. Then Worky, what will it take for you to review your consideration of Pardew? You defend players like Williamson, Simpson and Jonas, all of whom regularly take stick on these blogs, so you cannot fault Pardew on their selection. It is widely agreed that the new signings should have been made by the board last summer and we can see the difference they have brought to the squad’s spirit and our performances. There does not appear to have been a dressing room riot, in fact most players seem genuinely happy playing for Pardew. What should Pardew be doing if he was to make you his chief consultant? (Note: Derek Llambias apparently reads this stuff from time to time so you may have a good audience here…)

  14. Paul, the world is absolutely full of people spouting ill informed guff, hence I don’t believe that something is right simply because it is “widely agreed.” Even Hitler knew If you repeat any old crap often enough in the right places, eventually it would come to be accepted as fact and he was barking mad. Hence, the so called “wisdom of crowds” doesn’t play a large part in my decisionmaking process.

    You say that I can see that the new players the difference the new players have brought to the club’s performances, however I can also see that the tactics have also changed since we made the new signings too amongst other things. One of the commonest cause of errors is to reach a conclusion when you’ve missed out several factors on the road to reaching that conclusion, only to find those factors which have been omitted turn the whole thing on it’s head. Getting back to the subject of Pardew’s change of tactics though, this is something he has also done in the past, only to revert to his old methods. Top managers are usually marked by their consistency, not their fickleness.
