  1. The more I think about this one I am not so sure.

     

    I think in the short term and in the very near future Shearer and Roeder just might look after team affairs, but I am not sure Shearer would like the job on a permanent basis as early as this. Maybe in 2/3 years I have no doubt he would jump at the chance, he would not want to risk falling flat on his arse and that is the danger of picking something up after Sourness.

     

    :blink::razz:

  2. I enjoyed the day out and the craic before and after the match- more than a few beers helps the medicine go down. The period in between masquerading as a football team - total shite - best realise guys this is the best we can expect under Sourness.

    Correct, every time i go to St. james undetr this fuckwitt i find myself watching the same game over and over again. Against a recently first division side undeservedly down to ten me we could have played all day and wouldn't have scored, yet they looked as if they might.

     

    Souness is making us an embarassment and more than that is making me hate going to the match before, during and after.

  3. Not looking forward to this one, wonder if we've picked up any injuries from Saturday.

     

    Oh I almost forgot Ameobi's available for selection, is'nt he?

     

    Now that's a big plus, ha flaming ha! :razz::blink:

    GROUNDHOG DAY.

  5. You can easilly do an end of season review now as it may as well be over!

     

    Also did anyone notice in the West Ham game they announced Taylor as mon of the matcn with 10 minutes to go! It was basically them saying, well we know Souness team is going to do fuck all else in 10 mins so we may as well decide MOTM now with no fear of anybody snatching a goal or something!

    15590[/snapback]

    Two games on and we're predicting that this will be the beginning of the end of our season if this PRAT remains as the NUFC manager.

     

    A home game against a 10 man team who has just been promoted, and a defender is named as man of the match, (with 10 mins to go) FFSSSSAKE!!!!!!

  6. Good point Papa, just to add our full backs need to be more consistent, I am no fan of Babyaro but he was a little better than average yesterday. Truth is he has to be much better, and not just now and again. Carr is not that good but at least he is a tryer and TBH this can be worked on, but as for Babyaro he's just a lazy shit.

  7. West Ham looked a very poor side to me and the fact that we failed to score against them when they were down to ten men is very worrying.

     

    Newcastle will be relegated this season unless we sign two top strikers, no goals = no points = relegation.

     

    40/1 sounds like decent odds to me.

    West Ham are not a good side and we should be shot for such an inept performance. As for Sourness saying he is not worried, then I suggest he is a bigger idiot than I first thought.

     

    Sourness, you should be worried, with your crap managerial skills we are now facing a TFD, get real, we are not just a couple of top strikers away from brilliance or even safety we are a million miles away under your guidance.

     

    We could'nt even crack open a newly promoted (thay finished 6th last season and through the playoffs were promoted) team playing with ten men.

     

    FFS get real, relegation seems to me to be obvious under the current regime. The morale at the club will be on the decline and just watch how quickly even the new boys fall into the doom and gloom.

     

    We need to act now before it's too late, we are simply continuing the trend from last season, downwards and see how low we can go.

  8. [i have gone off Shepherd a lot in the last year, but I can't agree that he hasn't backed his managers, I think he has backed them to the hilt and if he had chose a good one and we therefore had been successful we wouldn't care too much about him making an arse of himself so much either, after all we didn't complain too much about him when we bought Bellamy and Robert and qualified for the Champions League

     

    Correct, let's all be honest, there are a lot worse out there and IMHO the real thing that has pissed me off most in the past 12 months is the appointment of the arse of a manager, SOURNESS. For that alone the Fat Controller has launched us into a TFD.

     

    No one can argue that the Fat Controllers misguided support for his manager, to the hilt and more.

     

    As LM says if he had got the right manager in place and won things we would not give 2Fs for what the Fat Controller was up to.

  9. Massive bollock, young, ambitious, gets head down and gets on with what he's paid to do. There again more than likely does'nt fall into the Sourness proper player category.

     

    Ambrose will only get better away from Sourness and his Cronies masquerading as coaches.

  10. During the Gordon Lee time at Newcastle (75-77) the fans were split. mainly because we had been brought up on the No 9 shirt and what it meant for the player and fans alike, but Gordon Lee had other ideas. He will always be remembered by the fans as the manager who sold Supermac, he should be remembered for reaching a top 6 finish and league cup final.

     

    Supermac was an instant success on Tyneside and hit the headlines for all the right reasons, he arrived in style and played with a style that scored goals.

     

    In 1974 when Newcastle were thrashed at Wembley. The so-called stars thought all they had to do was turn up and win at Wembley and they believed it was our right to win, but without the effort, and we were rightly trounced.

     

    Gordon Lee did not want an individual star on tyneside, he wanted a team of stars and whilst that probably infuriated one or two of the players the majority were happy to feel part of the team and IMO boosted their morale and team spirit was at an all time high. We finished 5th for Godsakes and were unlucky to lose at Wembly.

     

    Yet again the fans were not satisfied, the style of football being played and the ultimate sacrifice of Supermac being sold to ARSE nal for 350K in the August 0f 1976 brought about an uneasy feeling between player and manager, fans and manager, fans and the board and finally between manager and the board. The obvious outcome was that GL departed Tyneside and we were left with Richard Dinnis. TFD.

     

    Apart from KK and SBR Gordon Lee is the only manager in the last 50 years to bring us within a top 6 finish, now that can't be bad. Each of these managers had style, class and oozed confidence and generally you believed in their ability to achieve. They all had success written across their CV. They were not bullies, they were strong managers that knew their stuff. They were tacticians and knew the style of play required for each game. Theywere eagre to promote team spirit that allowed the players to play as a team and the players wanted to be part of that team. Gordon Lees ideas were certainly challenged at the time and I for one was not totally happy, but the results were measured rather quickly. Gordon Lee was only at Newcastle for a couple of years but his record speaks volumes.

     

    Please don't come back with two semi-finals just look at where we finished after a team demolishing exercise, don't compare Sourness to Lee, there can be no comparison, Sourness is shite, where did we finish last season, who have we sold since he arrived and take a hard look at who he has bought. Apart from two or maybe three players he has wasted most of the transfer spend and even worse let a number of players go on the cheap.

     

    Gordon Lee and Sourness - don't even compare.

  11. SBR did so many great things in his time at Newcastle but the sale of Nobby to villa was criminal, not just because of the peanuts he went for but because he still had so much to offer the team.

    It annoys the hell out of me when people say he was past his peak because he wasn't playing well but it was obvious it was more the fact that he knew he would be substituted somewhere between the 68-80 minute mark regardless of how he was playing and the way SBR carried on about him in the press was wrong.

    Just like our current waste of space Sourness, totally mismanaging the sale of players for peanuts.

  12. I agree that the team battled well. But for me the tactics were far too negative. With the formation Newcastle could have played another couple of hours (and even with eleven players) but most likely wouldn't have scored ... or created chances.

     

    Of course grinding out a goalless draw would have been a fantastic result, though I don't know if there was a plan B in case Arsenal had scored earlier.

    This is my worry when I've mentioned the possibility of relegation. We'll probably look neat and tidy, and pretty solid and all that, but there aren't enough goals in the team. We'll draw too many matches with a team like the one Souness put out today.

     

    A draw was all he hoped for today, that was obvious because he could have easily gone 4-4-2 with Dyer up front offering a threat behind their defence.

    12140[/snapback]

     

    Its why we have to sign more attackers and goal scorers, or better still not have got rid of the ones we had AND sign more!

     

    Its obvious that Parker and Emre will improve the midfield alot and that we can be quite solid and retain possession better, but we have to create more chances and get goals to win matches.

     

    Be interesting to see the formation and tactics at home to a team like West Ham

    12152[/snapback]

     

    A load of middle and nowt up front with little to offer in defence, it was only a matter of time before we cracked, we tried hard but TBH we were inadequate, basically CRAP. No alternative, we were never going to score, not even a threat.
