Newcastle United v Hull City.
Brucie’s Tigers are coming – Grrr!
Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle.
Date: Sat 21st Sep, 2013.
Kick off: 3.00pm.
Referee: Martin Atkinson (Bradford).
UK TV: None.

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to our “match banter” feature for this afternoon’s game which sees Newcastle United taking on Hull City at St James’ Park.

For a full preview of the game, you can also find an extensive match preview on here for a more in depth look forward to the game with all the teams news, stats and all the usual stuff. On here, I will be updating that with the final team sheets and links to watch the game online etc when they become available.

As I mentioned in the abovementioned preview, if the Magpies win today, it will be the first time they will have managed this feat for almost a year and a half as the last time this happened was back in April 2012, when Newcastle managed a winning run of six games using a very skinny “Christmas Tree” style 4-3-2-1 formation not dissimilar to the style Pardew has used to the side’s last game against Aston Villa.

But anyway, as I’ve already done the preview, I will keep this piece short and sweet, and get on with my usual reminders that I will also be posting highlights of the game when it’s all over, as well as a video of the whole game if there’s a decent one available.

Howay the Lads!

Do you agree with Alan Pardew's statement that "our home form since I've been at the football club has been brilliant?"

  2. Just had a look SJT. If I get a chance I might end up there. Just found out a fu**ing typhoons heading my way. Should be fun!

  3. SJT, I’ve never understood the point of buying snide gear. Surely you buy a Patek Phillipe watch or a Christian Leboutin bag, or whatever because it’s beautifully made with the finest materials?

  4. No option to buy so don’t get too excited.
    YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON

    “Anyone get a Debuchy sighting on that one? I didn’t.”

    No, but I’m struggling with some shite streams this week, tunyc.

    “Is it just me or does nobody in the squad know where the fullbacks are going to be?”

    They’re usually alongside Cisse, Ben Arfa and Remy.

    “Not bad hull like…nothing like a Bruce side I have seen in the past.”

    Aye SJT, I noticed when they were playing Chelsea that they’re trying to play decent football. In that game they were a bit like Brendan Rodgers’ Swansea when they played us though. They were passing the ball around but they couldn’t get out their own half much.

  8. Yup agree…Swansea where very like that in alot of games lots of action in their own half…Hull seem keen to attack and have tried to play football as well.

    “Yup agree…Swansea where very like that in alot of games lots of action in their own half…Hull seem keen to attack and have tried to play football as well.”

    Did you see the current Swansea against Valencia, SJT? 3-0 and another goal from my Wilf.

  10. Did someone tell the players to take people on with the chance of going past them,because thats the reason we will score at least twice more..wow,could it be that this would be the second half decent game in a month from nufc,and the parrot remains?Shocking…

  11. I think winning here today would really have set the team up for a decent season. Now we’re back to normal.

  12. A Everton
    A Cardiff
    H Liverpool
    A Sunderland
    H Chelsea
    A Tottenham

    4 away and both home games are top 6 sides

  13. Pardew made a sow’s ear out of a silk purse again when Cabaye had to come off. I’m quite impressed with Bruciola this season though, Hull are trying to play good football.

  14. Didn’t expect to lose against Hull today, But that has to be the beginning of the end for Pardew.
    Hull were getting in behind us at will, And the idiot puts Gouffran on, When Tiote was required to shore up the back.
    All of his subs were pathetic, And although we are not too bad going forward, We are crap in defence.

    If we had of been playing one of the big boys today, You would have been harking back to last season, And some of the crimes, A la Liverpool.
    Imagine if we had of been up against Van Persie today, He would have had a field day.

    We were made to look utter rubbish against a team who will be lucky to still be in the league, This time next year.
    On that performance, We could well be joining them!
    Pardew’s ridiculous statement about beating everyone at home, Has come back to bite him big time.

    I said he could be all washed up after the Everton game, In fact he is all washed up now, And he has nowhere to go.
    Outfought, Out thought, By a man who was plying his trade in the second tier, Only a few months ago.
    It’s time to go for this p*** weak excuse for a manager!
    I cannot wait for the excuses to flow forth.
    Things like, It’s because Jonas and Amoebi, Were not fit!
    I’m glad that fat b*****d was there to see it, Along with Kinnear, Who cannot understand, Why it’s all gloom and doom.

  15. It was f**king school boy s**t by Pardew today, And further evidence, That he is not fit to manage this club, And never was!
    I didn’t get carried away by the Villa performance, Because this chump is never going to be any good.
    He has tried just about everything he can now, And nothing has worked foe him.
    Time to step aside and let someone else see what they can do with it!

  16. Phisix, It doesn’t matter whether he won’t go, Ashley will f**k him off regardless of contract, Because i can see more defeats of that manner and worse, Under this dickhead’s stewardship.
    Ashley going to end up with no other choice, Then to sack the useless prick!

  17. I’m all over the place here, No more afternoon drinking for me.
    I’m just so incensed also, To see how inept Alan Pardew really is!
    I need to take a few deep breaths, And compose myself!

    “I’m just so incensed also, To see how inept Alan Pardew really is!
    I need to take a few deep breaths, And compose myself!”

    Joe, are you like that big ginger gadgie on YouTube, the “true Geordie” or whatever he calls himself?

  19. Worky, I like him, He has some good patter!
    Well i kind of have a red cast to my hair, Although it’s nearly all grey now, And i will be like Pardew shortly!

  20. Our “Brilliant” home form under Pardew’s tenure continues.

    And anyone who thinks he’ll get the sack any time soon is kidding themselves. As long as he doesn’t get us relegated or doesn’t get a better offer elsewhere (as if), we’re stuck with him.

    A mediocre season that has us bobbling around in mid(ish)-table is all Chubs needs to keep his hands in the EPL gravy. He doesn’t give a toss what we think about him. He fugging hates us.

  21. Darthbroon, Even Ashley will have to act, If they go on a massive losing streak, Which with some of the fixtures we have, Is a distinct possibility.

    There was always going to be a pivotal game that made or broke Pardew, And i think that on e today set the tone for things to come.
    If he got the win today, He could have bought himself some grace, But predictably, He f’ed it right up!

  22. The post match interviews.

    Alan Pardew: “We started really, really well but then we dropped down a gear after our goal and that caused us problems for the rest of the game. Third gear is not enough in this league against any side.

    “You look for consistency and this team is a good team but we lack a bit of consistency and that is what gets you results.

    “I have to pay tribute to Hull, they did a lot of things very well today. We had a chance to pinch a point but it just fell to Loic Remy a bit quick.

    “We have to regroup and make sure we’re ready for the next one.”

    Steve Bruce: “I’m absolutely delighted I have to say. I’ve been really happy with the way we’ve played all season.

    “We created a lot of chances today and we thoroughly deserved our win.

    “I’m a Geordie at the end of the day and I’ve always enjoyed coming back, apart from last time (when his Sunderland side lost 5-1 to the Magpies) but today was very satisfying.

    “George Boyd did wonderfully well and Aluko’s shot went in off the post. I think he can light up this league.”

  23. Is it just me? Or did Ben arfa look like he had his wings clipped at half time? They looked up for it and well set up under old father cabbage patch…442 WORKS SOO WELL FOR US EH AL? PENIS!!

    “Is it just me? Or did Ben arfa look like he had his wings clipped at half time?”

    60 minutes, subz. When Cabaye came off, as you correctly observed, Pardew reverted to 4-4-2 with Remy and Gouffran up front and Benny was moved back a bit. We ran out of ideas after that. Typical Pardew.

    On the subject of Benny, he was weak defensively for Hull’s first goal. He should have closed down that Hull player, whatsisname, and he didn’t, but we know that he isn’t perfect like that anyway.

    “Darthbroon, Even Ashley will have to act, If they go on a massive losing streak, Which with some of the fixtures we have, Is a distinct possibility.”

    He won’t act unless our position in the Premier League is seriously threatened, Joe. His business acumen doesn’t seem to run to football managers’ contracts and I can’t see him paying six years of Pardew’s deal off unless we’re in really dire straights – so not until the back-end of the season, if at all.

    I mean, why would he? What’s he done so far that gives you the impression that he has any ambition beyond bobbling around lower mid-table? And God knows Pardew’s certainly capable of doing that.

  26. Darthbroon, I don’t know if Pardew has the ability to bob around midtable.
    Ashley hasn’t got a crystal ball, And Pardew ran them close to relegation last season.
    I honestly cannot see him having much longer, Unless he gets some results against the grain.
    I’m also sure Ashley hasn’t left himself in the predicament, Where he has to pay the cowboy Pardew, Too much in the way of wedge.

    On what I wrote above, Andy Gray called him out on that, but he was actually doing what Sissoko said that Pardew tells them to do when they lose possession, ie always get back into their original shape. Hence, I don’t even know whether to blame Benny for that, or the silver shithouse himself.

    Don’t get me wrong, Joe, I’m praying that you’re right. But I think he’ll act later rather than sooner. And I don’t think he’ll act at all unless we’re in a precarious position after Christmas, say. The fact that the team is obviously under-performing and that his mam could do a better job than Pards won’t make him act.

    “I’m also sure Ashley hasn’t left himself in the predicament, Where he has to pay the cowboy Pardew, Too much in the way of wedge.”

    I’m not sure about that at all, Joe. I still think recent appointments were made in order to make Pardew’s position so untenable as to make him walk. I’m only guessing, of course. Same as you. But, as I said before, I think Ashley’s ambitions for the club are VERY modest (and not coinciding with the hopes of the fans at all) and I think my pessimism is justified.
