NUFC Suffer Another Heavy Defeat Against Man Utd

It’s as you were for Alan Pardew and Newcastle United, as the Toon suffered yet another 4-0 defeat (take a look at all the heavy defeats NUFC have suffered under Pardew’s management), this time against Manchester United at St. James’s Park.

I thought we started off well, seeing a lot of the ball and pressing Man United in their own half. If we had scored during that time, the atmosphere would have been totally different inside St. James’s Park. In reality, it was an all too familiar feeling, as the players wearing black and white shirts capitulated, letting Man United do as they please. This then turned the atmosphere inside St. James’s Park from enthusiasm to apathy, and it didn’t get better from that point forward. [click to continue…]

We’re NUFC, and We’re Used to Taking Hammerings

*UPDATED: Included April 5th game against Manchester United.

A quote from Alan Pardew after the wretched display from his team against Southampton this weekend:

“When we turn to the fans, what can we say? They left at half past five this morning and they’ve come to watch a performance that isn’t ‘us’.

Far be it from me to disagree with our esteemed manager, but fans of Newcastle United have heard apologies like this all before. The last part is especially irksome because it seems like all too lately, Newcastle teams managed by Alan Pardew get resoundingly beaten on a regular basis.

So this afternoon I did some research to find out just how many times have we been hammered under Pardew, and compare that with the season we were relegated. [click to continue…]

Pardew Allowed Back In Against Southampton

Alan Pardew makes a comeback of sorts on Saturday. He’s actually allowed into a football stadium after sticking a nut on some bloke at Hull. Pardew’s touchline ban however remains intact, and will do so for another four games.

After being trounced by Everton, and not giving a rats arse, Newcastle’s players are looking like the season is done with already, and to be honest, so are the fans. It’s all become a bit of a chore maybe..but wait! We’re going to win the race for 8th! Maybe, meh…who cares anyway. See? That’s how inspiring supporting Newcastle has become lately.

Newcastle 0 West Ham 0

Earlier this week Alan Pardew asked the Toon faithful to judge the team after the games against West Ham and Fulham, well, that’s one game down and it’s not looking good. To put it mildly, Newcastle United were quite simply woeful against West Ham, and the decisions from Pardew (bringing on Sammy to replace Marveaux, and Gouffran to replace Cisse), show the complete lack of tactical knowledge by the Newcastle manager.
