    I sincerely hope that nobody contradicts me theneet cos I’m so fu***n angry with the way things panned out. Firstly, Pardew’s tactics were pure shit. How can you set out to win a game with eleven defenders and inviting the opposition to come at you for the whole of the first half when you are not good enuf to cope with it. ? They played their first half inside our 18 yd box which is suicidal at this level. Then, as if going in at half time was not bad enuf @ 1 down, we should have had at least 2 penalties, an obvious hand ball, then such a blatant push in the back that could be seen by a blind man. Was this bast4rd paid off or totally blind.
    I want a manager that sets out to win a game from the first min,and then to compound the problem, Obertan FFS.!Somebody please help me to get my heed round this cos it just aint workin. Howaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay the Lads.

    Where’d you get the formation from WT ? As I read, and MOTD seemed to back it up, that Pardwho went 4-3-3 last night ?

    If so why ? Was he matching up Swansea ? If so that seems odd as he hadnt done that in four previous games.

    “Where’d you get the formation from WT ? As I read, and MOTD seemed to back it up, that Pardwho went 4-3-3 last night ?”

    That’s just as it was on the club’s site, Andy. As I’ve mentioned before though, these things are are often shite. You can have the club saying it’s one formation, the BBC saying it’s another on MOTD, and Sky or BT saying something else again.

    Looking at the game, it looked like a return to last season’s 4-2-3-1 to me, or to be more exact, 3-2-4-1 with Debuchy as the fourth attacking midfielder behind Ameobi, even though we were on the back foot for much of the game.

    Cabaye and Tiote were in the two defensive mid positions with Santon getting forward a bit, but nowhere near as far as Debuchy. Then you had the centre backs.

    Obertan was pretty much the striker replacing Shola when he came on too rather than a winger.

    Was wondering what Pardiue’s Excuse would be.
    He claims we allowed Swansea to keep possession for the first half.
    Well actually i recall we used a very high line early in the game, but became frustrated by not being able to recover the ball and simply moved the line back into our own end.
    No one appeared that interested, letting Swansea keep possession.
    Pardiue stated he was somewhat frustrated and in the second half, we then worked harder at regaining possession.
    My question is, why did he have to await half time to initiate that policy ?
    Other managers constantly adjust tactics throughout the game, why cant he ?
    To then blame the Ref, shows what an empty suit he is.
    Compare him to say a Martinez, who is taking Everton on a run to-wards European Championship qualification.
    If Ferguson is so smart, why did he not pick him as his replacement, obviously doing a better job than the guy he took over from.
    Point is with Ashley making all the decisions, he feels he got a deal with Pardew, (he came cheap).
    Anyone that understands football, will tell you that the managerial role combined with good coaching, is every bit as important as those on the field.
    And shouldn’t be judged by how cheap they come, you get what you pay for and boy is that true in our case.

    avatar Chuck says:

    Soh! we lost eh!

    Can we now start adjusting the side to match up with who we may be playing against.

    First thing is Shola can not play an entire game, he can play twice or three times as a late fifteen/twenty minute impact player, could someone please tell Pardieu.

    If we need someone to play with Remy, we have two excellent choices in HBA and Gouffran, who can both play behind the striker.

    I have no idea why Marveaux has been sidelined for so long, but he is more capeable than Obertan to play in Gouffrans present role.

    Look i like Cabaye, but he has his occasional poor game, that’s why we got Anita i believe, in which case insert Anita when Cabye is poor.

    I dont know if attempting to play Sissoko as a winger is what i would be doing, the guy has so much potential in other roles.

    It’s frustrating, to see how this guy uses players, especially with their potential and pace, any decent manager would have this side checked out by now and ticking over like a swiss watch.

    The Swansea game was a typical example of being out coached and outplayed, by a manager with an injury riddled side yet.

    Someone else on another site has just written those immortal words “It was just one of those nights”

    Yeah it was because Pardwho decided he didnt want to take his 11 footballers to play against their 11. We fecking game them that game yesterday without so much as a whimper. Yeah we threatened but we played right into their hands.

    Maybe Pardwho thinks he’s a fecking genius after 4 wins on the trot ? Able to work his tactical miracle against a team struggling to find home form. Yet it doesnt take much to realise he’s just another journeyman manager.

    Chuck @ 9:

    “he is more capeable than Obertan to play in Gouffrans present role.”

    In truth, one could say that about certain inanimate objects:

    “a sandwich/pair of scissors/traffic pylon is more capable than Obertan to [sic] play in Gouffrans [sic] present role” – no less true.

    avatar tunyc says:

    Andy – I think AP is more reactive than anything. He doesn’t have any long-term vision or plan in terms of tactics/personnel. Even when he formulates a short-term plan, he abandons it at the first sign of problems or, oddly, sometimes in response to unexpected success. Just like I saw enough of Obertan at Man U to know he was a very limited top-flight footballer, I saw enough of AP at WHU and Charlton to know he’s not much of a manager.

    I can’t believe there was someone on one of these threads who asked if we’d have Martinez as manager. We should be so lucky.

    avatar AndyMac says:

    Yup his 4-3-3 went tits up immediately after he got shagged at Martinez’s Wigan. It also went within 30 minutes against Bordeaux at home last season despite being 1-0 up at the time.

    avatar GS says:

    I think Pardew doesn’t have any long term memory. When Krul played great at Spurs he was “world class”, he forgot about the flapping and the hoofing. Same with Cabaye. They are good players. Shola has a couple of good games and he becomes an automatic starter.

    I read a few of the other blogs and there were quite a lot of worms turning after 4 wins.

    It didn’t happen on here. In fact, AndyMac returned.

    I still think Pardew has learnt something about not hoofing as much. His tactics and in-game adjustments are as bad as ever. I would say his substitutions haven’t been as bad but then I remember he brought on Obertan.

    And, I agree with what Chuck said @9.

    Was he actually playing for a draw and the hope that we might snatch a win on the break? Against Swansea? I think he was.

    GS @ 15: I think that’s clear. We ceded 75% possession in the first half. Our squad isn’t that crap-it was a tactic.

    avatar chuck says:

    Having done well against some of the top sides in the league, why did we lose so badly against an injury riddled side, basically one without a striker.
    It was obvious after the first ten minutes, the side were not willing to chase after Swansea when they were in possession.
    And why did Pardiue, on noticing this, not tell the side to get their finger out and put some effort into their game.
    Or does he have the ability to communicate (not just a quick chat along the sideline) i mean by visual signals,
    to alter their tactics, when it’s obvious, the present tactics are not working.
    Iiue have seen Martinez and others do it.
    Plus god help us if we play in that same slow motion pace against Man. U.
    It was disgracefull and if Pardiue cant get them to play hard, then we should

    “Having done well against some of the top sides in the league, why did we lose so badly against an injury riddled side, basically one without a striker.”

    Laudrup adapted by using Jonjo Shelvey as a false number nine, he was very good at it. As Cruyff once said, every advantage has it’s disadvantage and every disadvantage has it’s advantage. Laudrup and Swansea gave a perfect illustration of the latter, turning round a disaster to completely wrongfoot the silver fox.

    Tim Krul has one good game and is player of the month for November? Who votes for this? Have they watched Aguero?

  25. 25
    avatar GS says:

    And Pardew gets Manager of the Month. They obviously didn’t watch our games either. Two good halfs against Chelsea and Spurs, and mediocre and backs to the walls the rest of the time.

    4 wins in a month is something though and nobody else really did anything to take it away from him.

    avatar joe hawkins says:

    Pardew only gets the Award because he is an underdog figure among the big boys.
    Total old pals act scenario, Although he got the 4 wins, It was more through luck than good management.
    So what does that say about the merit of such an Award, In the scheme of things?

    Funny enough, On the comments section of the Sky Sports Website, There were a few fans of other clubs putting the boot into him.
    Comments along the lines of him being a vastly overrated manager, And not deserving the Award etc…

    So it’s just not a bunch of disgruntled owld feckers like us who think he’s crap!
    People who know a bit about Football see him for two bit conman that he is!

    Worky, If the shoe was on the other foot, And Pardew was in Laudrup’s situation, He wouldn’t have had a clue of what to do next!

    “And Pardew gets Manager of the Month.”

    GS, manager of the month doesn’t mean much. As I have already written on these pages, manager of the year doesn’t mean much either as too many mediocre managers have won it in the past in a lucky season before divebombing. However, we’ve had three years of Pardew and that’s a good period to look at.

    If you throw three years of Pardew’s Premier League results into the mixer, factor in the strength of the squads he’s had at his disposal during that time, kneading out the high of 5th and the low of 16th, the Silver Fox has been Mr.Average in his three years at Newcastle so far.

    More on that story later…

    If Pardew had been at somewhere like Crystal Palace or a club of that stamp, He wouldn’t last two minutes!

    All that being said, Watch the daft cnut go to Old Trafford and sneak a win on the back foot.
    He does seem to carry that kind of luck with him, And he has more lives than a cat.

    If he does posses any kind of artistry, It lies in his ability to con an owner into thinking he is the man for the job.
    He does tend to more than outstay his welcome where ever he has been.

    Fatman could sell up
    Pigs could fly
    God could open a Twitter account

    All of which are more likely than Pardwho ever winning a trophy. He’s managed nowt of any significance throughout the whole of his managerial career so why would he now ? He was brought in to do a job and we’re marking time while he’s here !

    avatar joe hawkins says:

    Jose Mourinho is an arrogant git, But he has been able to back it up over his career.
    Pardew just talks a good fight, With very little behind anything he says.
    If he was as good as he likes people to think he is, Then you could put up with his constant whinging, Lying, Backtracking and all round contradictory personality!
    So far he hasn’t shown s**t, With a squad of International standard Footballers.
    You could understand it if he was managing Norwich City or a Palace, Where the playing staff rely more on heart and determination.
    This man cannot motivate a team of international players onto any kind of consistency, On a regular basis.

    Kevin Keegan, Although we all know what his faults are, Would have loved to work with the squad we have now.

    I’ve heard rumours that Roberto Di’matteo has said he would like to work with the players Newcastle have.
    So why is it that a Footballing Leviathan in Alan Pardew cannot get his team playing good football?
