    We might be playing a bit better, but I don’t like the look of this Pochettino managed Southampton after seeing them against the two Manchester teams. They’ve looked like Real Southampton at times. They’ve ovetaken us now and we’ve got them next in the League. They play some good football and are tricky customers.

    Worky, Southampton had a very tricky start to their season, loosing 3-2 to Citeh at the Etihad on the opening day (as I recall). They then faced further stiff opposition and played well but gained no points, hence their low-down placing in the league. Today’s game puts our loss to the Saints into better perspective. They are a decent side as we are now. I think next weekend’s game should be good, although we will be expected to take the points especially if Gouffran is a starter.

    Though, we have bought fairly well, as far as can be ascertained and played some decent football.
    We are finding it hard to work our way out of the danger zone, understandably so, as there are no gimme games.

    We have lost some games against lower placed sides in our fall down the league and maybe got a bit lucky with our last two wins.

    The S’hamptons, QPR’s and Wigans are not going to roll over for us and the rest are even tougher.

    I noticed, following the last two wins, a bit of hubris setting in with both Pardew and Llambias.
    One can usually tell when the side is doing good, the amount of shit they mouth off, directly increases with the number of wins.
    Otherwise theyre in the bunker.

    I suppose most fans thought here we go up the league , following the Chelsea game, then became a bit more grounded after the Spurs loss.

    As we have yet to give Yanga-M’biwa or Haidara a start, we cant be sure how good they will be, but at last we do have some depth.

    And as we are going nowhere in the league, perhaps we could give the UEFA cup a good shot, what the hell?

    But i suppose we will concentrate on survival, after all, as when asked by the press why he robbed banks, the famous Slick Willy Sutton, said it’s where the money is.

    I feel good about the performance yesterday,we played better in a lot of the game than spurs but an on fire Bale sealled our fate,if we keep playing like that there are four or five worse teams around than us so we should be ok. I think we will field a strong side at home against the ukranians as ther is no match next weekend. Although it would not be a disaster to go out given the predicament we are in it could also give us some impetus in the league if we got to the quaters or semis.

    Chuck, Paul, Southampton are a bit different now. Fergie was really shocked at how good they were, and they thrashed Man City the other day too. They press other teams very high up the pitch and attack with real speed. This new Argentinian manager they have could be really good. He reminds me a bit of Bielsa, which is no surprise as he played for Bielsa with Newell’s Old Boys and Argentina.

    well it looks like the honeymoon period with the new signings didn’t last long.
    although we were in the game up until gouffran got injured, therein lies the problem.
    the bench was full of players who couldn’t change the game, and i had that, we are back to square one feeling.

    we showed heart in the first half, to get back into it, and we were never overawed, but we still dont look like creating much.
    we continually tried to attack down the spurs left flank, but they were just doubling up, and our crosses were hitting the first man.
    jonas is s**t as a winger, and him and santon should swap positions, because santon is good going forward, but he is no fullback, and vice versa with jonas.
    santon goes on runs, and leaves us wide open, game after game, why is this never addressed?
    we would be better off sticking jonas fullback, it’s not as if he hasn’t played there before.

    i’m sorry to say i think collo has passed his peak, and has been done for pace, and you continually see him getting caught out.
    steven taylor has just come back from injury, and is the only one who looks competant, and up for the fight.
    he’s the only one you can make a case for, in the defence.
    we are not getting any better at the back,and the amount of goals we are letting in, is a disgrace.

    cabaye is a good free kick taker, but his dead ball kicking from corners is terrible.
    we could play from now until judgement day, and our set pieces will not yield a goal.
    what are the coaching staff doing on the training pitch?
    there is no idea, no invention, and even the basics seem to be missing.

    cisse upfront has gone from golden boot level, to the rubber welly, to coin a phrase from that nutter howard wilkinson.
    what’s the point of lumping balls up to a striker, when you know for a fact, it isn’t going to stick.
    let’s be honest, cisse is just a goal scorer, what he isn’t is a paticular, all round good footballer.
    you have to use him in the right way, he is an instinctive striker, who needs the ball into his feet, in and around the box, so he can hit them without thinking too much about it.
    he doesn’t have a good first touch, and a lot of the time, his first touch is a tackle.
    we should have definatley brought in another striker to play along side him.
    you cannot have him pulling out wide, or trying to hit him as a target man, because it doesn’t work.

    sissoko looked like a man who had gave his all the previous week, and along with international duty, looked jaded.
    what got me was, where he was playing stifled him, and he would have been more effective playing where perch was, so he could direct things better, and see the full of the pitch more, than being shoved further up.

    in a week wher we have had all the bluff, bluster, sabre rattling, and all round crap, from the lowrachy, inevitably ended with a defeat.
    it’s always the same from these lunatics, chuck, your spot on, when we win a few games, they are giving it large, but when we are in trouble, they do what the mafia at war do, “go to the mattresses”.

    as for alan pardew being the new alex ferguson, in the words of jim royle, “MY A**E”!.
    the bloke is beyond hopeless, he could have barcelona’s squad, and he would ruin it.
    i see it hasn’t taken him long to have debuchy, just looking up, and bombing it long, down the field.
    alan pardew will get the game of association football, done away with.
    this team will never progress under his stewardship, and his back room staff, are rubbish also.
    so much for the purple meanie’s appraisal of the state of affairs, at the club.
    “we do things very well”, i think you’ll find your in the minority of one, in that respect derek…

    i suppose you could take few positives from the game, but we still have that deluded headcase, running the first team.

    Worky @7: in retrospect colocinni should have clattered Bale and took the yellow card. Even in real time I thought he pulled out of the challenge a bit. That said, I thought Bale did well to drive through and finish it so he has to take some credit.

    avatar GS says:

    Joe: you identify the two easiest fixes. Never hoof it up the middle. The timing of Cisses and Sholas jumps mean we NEVER win the ball and it is basically a direct pass to the opposition. Why not try a short corner? Do they do corner drills? I thought it might be bad luck with Williamson because he got into position but never scored. However we are the same without him. Therefore, find one of our players who can consistently take a good corner and drill it into the players where they should be and what they should do. FFS, since we never score from them, our corners are just an opportunity for the opposition to have a fast break with our defenders out of position.

    “jonas is s**t as a winger, and him and santon should swap positions,”

    Joe, Jonas has been playing on the right with Debuchy for the last two games, not on the left with Santon, though some of the broadcasters who put out the line ups before showing the game got it wrong.

    avatar joe hawkins says:

    worky, i just mean in the general sense, if we are to play jonas, i think the only place for him in the side, is as a fullback, because his defensive abilities far outweigh his attacking threat.

    i think santon could become a very decent winger, and should forget about fullback, because he has no positional sense, for that role.

    the second goal was a p*ss poor one to give away, i know bale is a class player, although he’s still an ugly cnut, with that ridiculous goal celebration to boot.
    we had two defenders who shouldn’t be getting done from that area of the pitch, and should have enough about them to anticipate the bounce.
    i also think krul goes down to late, and should have gone to ground earlier, to make himself a bigger target.
    that’s a few times this season he’s been nutmegged, that shouldn’t be happening.

    Yes! on the subject of set oieces (corners in particular)
    We are just awfull, have been for ages, why ?
    I had questioned the coaching in he past ?

    Is it down to Pardew who had stated he practices defense three quarters of the time and leaves the attacking to Carver , Stone and Woodman, i suppose.

    Of course we should for the most part agree many of us have little faith in Pardew, who many consider, tactically clueless. but what about the rest ?

    I know we lost a good coach in Colin Calderwood a while back.

    How much influence has Carver, we see him on the side lines, where he appears to have Pardews ear, but it’s difficult to figure other than Pardew, who is responsible for what.

    But one thing is obvious, we have to improve on set pieces.

    Something else we have to do is improve the fast break.
    Being we tend (a seemingly Pardew tactic) to defend for the most part in the second half, well if we are ahead, OK!

    But we should be prepared now we have some pace in the side, to spring the fast break.
    Thats how we scored against Chelsea, with both Gouffran and Sissoko having bags of pace.

    But instead we revert to type (regardless who we have out there) by playing hoofball.
    Who’s fault is that and why are we constantly outplayed during the second half ?

    avatar Chck says:

    Yes Joe,
    I agree Jonas has had his day, will never improve over what you see, has been unproductive except for a while playing alongside Enrique, where the had a good understanding.
    Problem is when you have a wing back who puts in better crosses and scores more, than the winger in front of him.
    You got a problem.
    I thought he would make a good defensive inside midfielder, but he’s kinda lost in the role, same as a defender.
    Yeah the guy runs all day, like the ever-ready battery, but doing what ?
    I’m sure i will get criticised for this and perhaps Jonas is a real nice guy, but you are only as good as your last game/s, thats the reality of this buisiness
    unfortunately.

    As far as Santon is concrned, i think he has shown a great deal of improvement over this season.
    Playing with a confident swagger, bombing down the pitch.
    does his defence suffer from his runs upfield ?
    It’s like Robert i suppose, who SBR gave up on him ever tracking back, because of what he contributed in attack.
    Santon has been unfortunate in not scoring, which i believe will eventually happen.
    And you dont get into the Italian side if you are not a capeable defender.
    Personally IMO he’s the most improved player in the side and still a relative youngster.

    Worky: when Colo sees that Bale is past him he STILL has the opportunity to make an illegal stop at that point, a “professional” foul. Maybe he should have been positioned better but when he wasn’t he had that option. Williamson does it virtually every game and sacrifices his body for the cause. Coloccini didnt. That’s all I’m saying

    Chuck, Marveaux and Gouffran were the wingers playing in front of Santon in the last few games, and Santon only attempted one cross in the whole game yesterday, which was unsuccessful.

    As you were referring to Gutierrez though, he has scored one goal this season and Santon hasn’t scored any yet. Also Gutierrez’s success rate for his crosses is 23% (of 75), whereas Santon’s success rate is only 18% (of 62). Incidentally, Ben Arfa’s crossing is also less successful than Gutierrez’s at 18% (of 50) along with several other Newcastle United players too.

    A lot has been made of the new technology in football. Aren’t we supposed to have these AV facilities where the expert coaches and staff dissect each game and pass on the findings to the players. Then how come they haven’t identified the hoof doesn’t work for us? Add to that the statistics that are readily available (see Worky’s previous comment) and you would think they could devise a new plan for corners, coz God knows the current one doesn’t work.

    “Problem is when you have a wing back who puts in better crosses and scores more, than the winger in front of him.”

    Chuck, it’s easy to use the term “wing-back” to describe any full back who happens to be quite attacking and bombs forward a bit. However there is a difference. Wing backs tend to be utilised as part of a system whoch has 3/5 at the back rather than 4.

    Also, if the player was really playing in a true “wing back” role, he wouldn’t have a winger in front of him as he would be the winger (and the full back) if you get my drift? Hence a wing back with a winger in front of him is somewhat contradictory.

    You want it to be as far away from the corner flag is it isn’t golf and you can’t take the flag out. Having written that though, many penalty takers put the ball just a few inches in front of the penalty spot too, yet they never seem to put it an inch or two behind.

    Worky
    Lets not get into semantics here.
    As far as most people are concerned, the old title full back is a thing of the past.
    As all FB’s/wing backs are expected to join in the attack, the fact we also employ a winger has nothing to do with it.
    It’s all part of whatever tactical positioning the Manager sets up, as lineups are supposed to be flexible.
    Like Jonas covering when overlapped by Enrique,and for a while Ferguson doing the same for Santon.
    But my main point in regard to Jonas is his unproductability.
    If you really want to use statistics, then tell us how often he as a forward/winger scored since he arrived.
    Personally i dont know, (i dont use them knowing you can prove or disprove most things according to how you present them) but am sure the times he could have donned the Spiderman mask, have been few and far between.
    I simply dont understand why you take it upon yourself to defend people like Jonas and Williamson, even Perch who is no more than a journeyman fill in, when most others criticise what they see and rightly so.
    Unless you consider the majority of those who criticise these players as really not that good a judge of the game.
    Which you cetainly have a point about Simpson critics, but i believe that has more to do with his being ex Man. U., plus the fact he wont sign another cheapass contract.
    You know how it goes, any rejection of NUFC is taken personally by some.
    But we are digressing, I mean can you give a good reason for picking Jonas and exactly where would he best be employed?

    Shola

    There’s a lot of pace and goalscoring ability up front, plus playmaking from Cabaye, who also is not, like Tiote, afraid to put his foot in.
    Sissoko can play the role of a younger Ya Ya Toure, with pace and goalscoring ability on either wing.
    But i’m sure Pardew will give the nod to Perch and Jonas.

    It showed when Tiote replaced Perch last week, i dont know why he started him, as i think he would be a third place choice behind both Tiote and Anita.

    No it isn’t Chuck, “full back” is still the usual term for someone who plays on the left or the right side of defence, and “the fact we also employ a winger has nothing to do with it” couldn’t be more wrong. If a “Wing Back” had a winger in front of him then the winger would be the winger, and the so called “wing back” would just be a back. That’s how it works and yes, that IS semantics.

    Carrying on the semantics theme, “unproductability” isn’t a word.

    “I simply dont understand why you take it upon yourself to defend people like Jonas and Williamson, even Perch who is no more than a journeyman fill in, when most others criticise what they see and rightly so.”

    I just write what I think and I don’t care much for the ill informed group mentality thing, where one idiot says something often enough that it starts to spread like an epidemic and turns into a widely held prejudice, even though it might be completely wrong.

    YES ! I know, thats why i called him a younger Ya Ya Toure. (who plays the trailing center of a diamond)
    Marveaux and Gouffran, being the goalscoring pace on either wing.
    A misunderstanding obviously.
    So in fact we will have Cisse, Sissoko, Gouffran,Cabaye, all capeable of putting the ball in the net, plus HBA when he returns.
    More like a Barca front line than our usual two strikers constantly getting in each others way.

    Being HBA is presently injured is why i did’nt include him, but if you take another look you will see i did include M’Biwa.
    Though i think instead of using HBA as a winger, he would be more productive in a roaming role behind Cisse.
    As the more he played on the RW the less it appeared to suit him.

    One of the blogs i read has a poll on whether you are for or oppose the possible return of Carroll to the club.
    That is for a fee of close to ten million quid.

    Personally i’m opposed, believing he would be, too pricey, would upset the teams present balance and playing style, which is hopefully to keep the ball on the ground and play a possession game, ie; a modern version of the game.
    We all know how Carroll plays, an old fashioned center forward role, with a lot of high balls heading into the box, on a hope.
    And before anyone gets on my case about that, think about it, thats why Rodgers got rid of him.
    It’s time we started to play a style that no longer depends on one or two strikers only, getting goals.
    But having five or six players who can put it in the net.
    Only a hope with Pardew still here, but, being Pardew does defense and supposedly Carver does attack, perhaps he can be influenced to get up to speed or be the oddmen out, along with BSA and Pulis who have perfected hoofball, whereas Pardew tends to have the team playing an un-recognizable system with a mixture of styles involved, that confuses me.
    I mean what happened in the second half of the Spurs game, which i believe we edged during the first half.
    We went into a shell and from there gradually went down hill, what was the tactic, play for a draw ?

    While on the subject, those crazy rappers are probably responsible for adding more words now commonly used, by english speakers throughout the world.
    At least African Americans have been responsible for introducing more new words, which when they become commonly accepted and used, become part of our common language, whatever ones opinion of them is.
    Sez something !

    Still stunned by he recent Brasilian side, has to be the worst ever side to play in the national colors.
    Whats happened to football in Brasil?
    If the dont win the next world cup, it will be a calamity.
    But with the side they fielded, i would say either get rid of Scolari, or go back to the drawing board.

    “Yes i agree, but if there’s an unpredictability, then why not an unproductability ?
    Seems there’s a need for it.
    After all English adds a lot crazier words to it’s lexicon on an annual basis.
    The danger is we could, like German, continually add to a given word to make it as long as some sentences.
    Or like the French, refuse to accept words from other languages unless the have been converted to a French equivalent.”

    Chuck “unproductivity” is a real noun which should do the trick for your future Jonas hatchet jobs.

    Ah yes! The infamous German compound nouns.

    Aye, the Academie Francaise have recently tried to stem the tide of English words entering their vernacular, however the’re are already lots of English words in French usage like “le weekend” and so on… and also vice versa too “Coup d’etat”.

    I’m a bit like those Frogs sometimes though. Personally, I think that the dreadful (and gramatically incorrect) American habit if using adjectives instead of adverbs to modify words which are neither nouns nor pronouns (eg “real quick” instead of the correct “really quick”) is a grammatical crime which should be outlawed immeditely by the English language Police, as should the American use of “normalcy” instead of “normality.” ;-)

    Wouldn’t the real solution be to just outlaw some Americans e.g. Chuck :)

    Now, now GS. He’s been like Dr.Jeckyll today so far, though he has gone for a few Amstels now so we might see “Mr Hyde” later on.

    Actually, I do admire his devotion to them and Martinez, especially Martinez as spends so much time flirting with relegation. The interesting ones are Laudrup and Pochettino. I’ve been boning up on the latter.

    The fact is there has been very little recent additions attributed to the English language from it’s birthplace England.
    Most being attributed to it’s former colony The USA.
    In which case England has been reduced to a somewhat satellite status, as opposed to being the center of the English speaking world.
    Also the fact that the USA has had a major effect on all things from business to taking over the role of the being the worlds policeman, with it’s overwhelming military strength.
    Has had it’s effect in regard to language.
    Actually quite lucky for y’all English speakers, as it was a close decision following the end of the revolutionary war , when it was decided to adapt English as opposed to German as the national language.
    And though George Washington was offered the kingship of the new nation, refused.
    Hell if i had got such an offer i wouldda jumped at it.
    But i guess he just wanted to go home and take it easy, though he did accept the presidential role, and who better.

    On the question of Chants and songs.
    Yes i’m aware the question has never been raised, except by myself a long time ago.
    We hear from new arrivals to the side that the overwhelming sound from the fans, gives them impetus during the game.
    Well for someone who has expierienced the crowd and their chanting/singing, both at home and away.
    I’m not impressed.
    The “Toon, Toon” sound is ridiculous, the “We are the Geordies, the Geordie ballboys”, is insipid.
    Yeah there are some like “Oh Shola Ameobi” are cute.
    But in general the sound of fifty thousand plus fans in the day, all yelling, “Howeah Newcasile” trumps all these recent developed nothings.
    Back to basics lad, thats where it’s at.

    Chuck, you’re overreaching yourself again and writing guff. The English language is evolving all the time on both sides of the Atlantic. You sound just like one of those ignorant, arrogant ill informed blowhards who give Yanks a bad name.
