Alan Pardew has challenged his Newcastle players to end a run of successive home defeats by winning Thursday's Europa League game against Maritimo.
Victory against the Portuguese side would guarantee the Magpies' qualification for the knockout phase of the competition and help to cushion the blow of Saturday's 2-1 loss to Swansea.
The shock defeat followed last weekend...
Alan Pardew is under some pressure at the moment after seeing Newcastle lose two home game sin a row at home against what we would consider mediocre sides in West Ham and Swansea, and no disrespect to those two clubs but it’s not like we were beaten by Chelsea and Manchester City for instance. Alan [...]
We see that some fans are starting to question some of Alan Pardew’s selections, and the formation he has the lads play in, and that had to come after a mediocre start to the season, and then the very disappointing loss against West Ham on Sunday. Criticism like that is par for the course for [...]
When Newcastle received the news at 1:45 pm on Saturday that Papiss Cisse was being prevented from playing for Newcastle because the Senegal Football federation had initiated the five day rule, and Newcastle immediately issued their statement on the matter we thought if anything our players would have been even more determined to do well [...]
Newcastle have now lost two games in a row, and two games at home in successive games is hardly good and as Graeme Souness used to say – if Newcastle lose two games in a row it’s a crisis . Alan Pardew – under pressure at Newcastle Well it may not quite be a crisis [...]
Alan Pardew has made three changes to the Newcastle United line-up for Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Swansea City at St. James’ Park. In come Vurnon Anita, Sammy Ameobi and Cheick Tiote – with the Ivorian having just completed his three match ban for being sent off at Sunderland. Newcastle will still start in a [...]
Alan Pardew talked earlier in the week about getting the fans behind Newcastle, but that the players must play their part too, and show enthusiasm and energy at St. James’ Park, and not much of that was seen in the first half on Sunday afternoon in the 1-0 defeat to West Ham. John Carver – [...]
We know that John Carver keeps Alan Pardew well informed of what’s on the Newcastle fans’ minds, and apart from being upset that we lost to a mediocre West Ham side last Sunday, and by a Kevin Nolan goal of things, there have been pleas from the fans to play something other than 4-4-2 with [...]
Alan Pardew has said that Jonas Gutierrez and Papiss Cisse will be in the squad for the game against Maritimo on Thursday night, but Gabby Obertan, who was missing yesterday and didn’t play, has another toe injury, and he will miss the Maritimo game. Papiss Cisse – in the squad for Maritimo game And Alan [...]
Michu set Swansea on the road to a 2-1 victory at Newcastle as the misfiring Magpies slipped to a second home defeat in seven days.
On a day when the home side were prevented from fielding their own big-money frontman Papiss Cisse because of a wrangle with the Senegal Football Federation, the depth of Alan Pardew's squad was exposed once again.
A team shorn of Cisse, the suspended...
For really the first time in Alan Pardew’s reign on Tyneside, Newcastle are in a bit of a slump and in 12th place in the league table, which is really not where we want to be, after finishing 5th in the Premier League last season, and qualifying for the Europa League. Alan Pardew on Saturday [...]
There’s not much wrong with the players Newcastle have in their squad, and as Alan Pardew often said last season, when we have out best team out we can beat any side in the Premier League, and we dare say that if we didn’t have the extra games in the Europa League this season, we [...]
It’s a really important Premier League game against Swansea this afternoon, and if we don’t win the game, it will add to the frustrations of the Newcastle fans, who want to see Newcastle start climbing that league table, and that’s hard to do with home draws and home defeats. Alan Pardew – different challenge today [...]
We had a few misgivings about that story earlier in the week that said that Jonas Gutierrez’ sister had tweeted that her brother was out for around two months with his knee injury, and it turns out it was all false. Jonas Gutierrez will return soon And news yesterday from Alan Pardew that Jonas has [...]
After two successive home defeats in just 7 days there was more bad news handed out by Alan Pardew after the game yesterday, which saw the lads lose 2-1 to a good looking Swansea. Yohan Cabaye - may need operation on groin The groin injury to Yohan Cabaye may be worse than we thought, and [...]
