    Sounds as if it got feisty ? Might check out the highlights later.

    The Ref went down like a ton of bricks from Sissoko’s inadvertent slap. Has he been watching the footballers reactions too much? Was he looking to get Sissoko sent off?

    You obviously never saw DiCanio vs Alcock.

    Can we now assume that 4-4-2 with Shirley starting is now consigned to the “seemed like a good idea at the time” box ?

    Remy, despite his aberrations today, is far better served in a three than with Shirley feeding him occasionally.

    Take the OT line up with Goof and Sissoko/HBA either side of Remy plus Tiote, Anita and Cabs in midfield then we’ll get results against the lesser teams

    Though i agree to the fact Shola can lay on the perfect pass at times, his playing time is limited, do you bring him on for the first half, then sub him mid second, cause he is no longer fit to play a whole game.
    Or do you bring him on as a late impact player.
    Yeah whats new with Pardeux, same old same old, does this guy ever learn anything?
    Missed to- days game, so i can’t comment on it, was refering to the lineup.

    Did get the Citeh vs Aresenal game and jusifies my earlier claim that Citeh would win the league.

    6-3 that’s a beating!

    And in regard to Shola being a target man, he never was and never will be, plus if you need a target man, you are playing an outdated game.
    No surprise there .

    Tis a beating Chuck, no excuses. maybe we played them at the right time ? 7, 6 and now another 6 lets hope Pardwho’s got a plan B by 12th Jan ??

    avatar chuck says:

    Interesting we have Palace and Stoke ,followed by Arsenal as the last three games this year, a win to-day would have boosted our chances, though we couldn’t have advanced further.

    Again, a very competitive season, with only five points seperating the top five sides, the outstanding numbers are the fact Citeh have forty seven goals for, with an average against.

    Then comes (though we are sitting in sixth place), our goals against which is only exceeded by four other teams, with only ourselves and Spurs in a negative goal average position in the top ten.

    That tells me either Debuchy and Santon, have to do more defensive work, or we need some help, i believe it’s the latter and time we signed a big name or a very promising young CD.

    Plus i’m very curious as to what’s up with both Taylor and Marveaux, or is this guy gonna wear out those same old faces.

    Plus when is young Sammy gonna get even a cameo role.

    It appears you are flavor of the month, regardless of the fact players need to rest and others need match practice and all must be able to fit into a system.
    It’s not that long ago, Pardeux complained about the lack of bodies, now that he has a decent bench, doesn’t seem to know how to use them.
    Eh! whats new.

    FFS just watched Pardwho’s interview and gotta say the man’s an idiot !

    Lallana made a difference (and I did f’ck all about it)
    Hatam could have made a difference but I left it too late
    Anita played well but Cabaye was sorely missed (thanks Vurn but you’re not good enuff) cos we’ve never had the vision to find a direct replacement.

  15. 15
    avatar chuck says:

    I wanted McCarthy and Long during the last widow, one who can do what both Tiote and Cabaye do.
    The other a hard working behind the center forward role.
    McCarthy would have cost more than Anita, but then he’s twice the player.
    Long is one of the hardest working forwards in the league, who gets his goals, but primarily he does other things better than most in the league and i think Remy would definately have benefitted from his presence.
    Plus he would have come cheaper than most of those mentioned for that role.

    Well fugedaboud any rundown of the game, i just listened to the two managers and their opinions.
    Pochetinno had the first half even, with S’ampton. dominating the second.
    Good enough for me!

    avatar GS says:

    Remy had 2 golden chances and scoring goals is what matters and we shaded it on quality chances. Pardew’s description was pretty accurate. If Worky can find the full game it is definitely worth a watch because it was very entertaining.

    It is a perfect time for Ben Arfa to start against Palace and Stoke. He could tear their defenders apart if he has a good game. With Sissoko and Gouffran in good form, at the very least he could free up some space for them.

    Anita had a decent game, but faded slightly. He had to do a hell of a lot of running because of Southampton’s style. I am not sure if Cabaye would have done any better, but he does have the set piece ability and can shoot from long range.

    avatar Paul in Hollywood says:

    Chuck, if Remy had been his usual self we probably would have won this game, but credit to Southampton. The League does not lie, as the saying goes. They were good, slick, and defended well. Personally, I think we missed Cabaye. Anita is a definite asset but we were not as penetrating or threatening as we have been of late. It’s my two cents, Chuck, and a left coast two cents at that.

    “Worky: how about your opinion on the game since you actually watched it (I did too).”

    I didn’t get the chance to watch it properly, GS, I seldom do. I often have to watch them again to write about them with some kind of in depth, informed opinion because I’m too busy doing stuff.

    avatar workyticket says:

    GS, from what I could see, Southampton’s approach wasn;t working, as I mentioned before the game, good though Pochettino’s Southampton can be, they don’t like it up ‘em sometimes, as i also mentioned, Mourinho twigged that one the other week.

    Unlike Pardew sometimes though, Pochettino did do his job at half time, they came out a better team and got a goal and a point back anyway.

    As I said, I haven’t really watched it in forensic detail yet, like Quincy or CSI Toon.

  22. 22
    avatar GS says:

    Worky: this was entertaining stuff. I have moaned about lack of entertainment in the recent past and both teams went for it in the second half. It was ebb and flow, with each team having a spell of dominating football. This could easily have been 3-2.

    I have seen other blogs talking like we played badly, we didn’t, and Pardew didn’t shut up shop in the second half, which we have all been asking for on here.

    I think I will have a look for the Refs “simulation” on youtube as it was pretty funny.

    Clarke sacked. I hope they have a Plan B.

    They haven’t given him hardly any money to spend and he is not in the relegation zone, and they lost Lukaku. This seems a bit harsh to me.

    West Brom were a yoyo club before and all the other clubs around them invested based on increased TV revenue.

    “Clarke sacked. I hope they have a Plan B.”

    West Brom are very much a lower mid table side. They struggled under di Matteo and they still haven’t made a huge leap since then. Uncle Woy and Steve Clarke had them punching above their weight and the first time they sink to around where they should be for a while, Clarke gets sacked.

    overall we were the better side and a couple of terrible misses by Remy would have made the game safe, they had a 20 min spell in 2nd half where they were on top but once they had scored we seemed to start playing again.
    As ever with a pards team if one ahead at half time we seem to sit further back and just try and catch teams on the break

    looks like Remy has the Cisseitis and is now hitting a dry patch, given that Shola is never gonna score what say we change it and just have Gouff and HBA up front

    avatar chuck says:

    Five zip Liverpool!

    Dont know what the odds are, but if i were Villas-Boas, i would be preparing for a change of scenery.

    It was all over once the red card was issued, even though Spurs attempted to make a game of it early in the second half.

    This ridiculess card system has to go, as it has spoiled more games than enough.

    Time to either follow the lead of other pro sports and institute a sin-bin or something more equitable than this present carding system, that results in players missing games and for the most part, destroying any hope of the penalized side to win.

    That and make sense of the offside call, especially the ruling concerning a player, who though obviously offside, is ruled as not interfearing with play, which has proven to be so subjective, officials have come to contrary decissions, in regard to the same play.

    Looks like Rodgers side are back in second place, with Suarez playing out of his skin, i can see why RM want him and i think he will end up there, in the not too distant future.

    As for Spurs, what can one say, one hundred and seven million spent on what looked like a very ordinary side.

    I think a new manager is the answer, certainly Villas-Boas is not doing the job, though he is managing what could be considered an almost totally new side, with all the recent signings and should be given the curtesy of time to organize things.

    Thought i’d mention Taylor, who has been offered an opportunity to go on loan, my question is why ?

    It’s a position that needs strengthening, not sending people out on loan.

    One would think, and some NUFC fans do believe that because of Pardews recent run, he has suddenly become a good manager, if that were true, how come he has such a crap record since he’s been here and why cant he utilise the bench, playing the same side week after week, shows a lack of confidence.

    I can see him sitting guys like Obertan, but he should be picking both the necessary tactics and players who will best match up with the particular opposition.

    Oh! forgot he only knows two tactical approaches, well one really, he’s just experimenting with the possession game.
    Goes to show, that bullshit sometimes baffles brains.

    The bar that I watch football at has mainly Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal fans. I wish I had gone to watch the games now.

    AVB had talks with PSG in the summer, and is now hanging by a thread even though they have the same number of points as us.

    That Liverpool demolition was worse than us because we were on a terrible run and facing relegation.

    Maybe Spurs will look to Di Matteo as caretaker? He is also favourite for West Brom even though they sacked him.

    Strange the way things work out, as a lot of people were touting Di Matteo for our Manager.

    Shite that Spuds defeat brought back some very bad memories from last season. Know how it feels but maybe we can look forward rather than back ?

    Palace next week has come at the wrong time (post Pulis) as they look well organised against Chelski yesterday. Pardwho claims Vurn has left him with a headache cos Cabs will be back but IMO there’s no decision to be made. Vurn, Tiote and Cabs in midfield plus HBA, Remy aka Misse, and Goof up front.

    Toon, there’s a top six that are way ahead, then there’s a big gap until you find Everton and Newcastle. After that there’s another gap with Swansea and Southampton are the new leaders of the next chasing pack, followed by clubs like Villa, Blunderland, West Brom, West Ham etc.

    “<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< was surpised that spuds boss was not sacked after the game with liverpool meself,his p 45 is probally in the post imho”

    Tottenham have too many new players to integrate into the side at the same time and they are seventh with much of the season still ahead, therefore sacking him would be premature.

    That might have been a good excuse for Pardew after Janauary’s French influx but they didn’t buy quite enough players for that and the Silver fox had already had a bad losing streak before signing them. He also latched on the the small lift that came after signing them as proof that it was the players who were crap, not him.

    Getting back to Villas Boas though, he’s had seven major new players who needed to be integrated into the new team this season (Pardew had four). The first part of the season was always going to be transitional for Tottenham.

    Toon, they actually only spent about £3 million on players once you coumt the ones they sold and it wasn’t only Gareth Bale.

    They bought £107 million and sold about £104 million. It takes time for a whole new team to gel no matter who the players are and Levy can be an idiot who makes stupid football decisions sometimes.

    avatar TOONARMYELITE says:

    @ workyticket
    understand what ya saying bud but spuds wasted the bale money they should of took ozil as part of the deal, and spent the other say 50 from the deal on another world class player and got 2 world class players for the price of bale imho

  47. 47
    avatar GS says:

    Worky @47: I understand the net spend argument but I bet there was a big increase in wages given many more players came in than went out and Bale was on high wages, but not Rooney wages.

    It still doesn’t make sense as they finished with their most points ever in the premier league last year. A 0-5 loss is 3 points lost, just like 0-1.

    I watched the game and Suarez was unstoppable. Plus, they really only got truly battered after they went down to 10 men.
