Pardew was appointed as a yes man by Ashley and he never seems to protest about the chronic lack of investment and ambition shown by the owner.

 

This complete lack of ambition demonstrated by one of the lowest net spends of any premier league club over the last 5 years has taken us from the brink of challenging for a top 4 place (which is the least a club with the size of our support should expect) to mid table mediocrity at best and Pardew has said nothing - which is why he was appointed in the first place

 

 

Except he has commented on it in the last couple of weeks.

 

"We have been unlucky but we are in the process of analysing whether we under-cooked it [the transfer window] and that's what we should do. It would be silly not to."

The same complete lack of ambition is what got us to the brink of 4th too tbf. You can't have it both ways.

 

Yes but last season in my opinion we made a number of really good purchases for a relatively small outlay and we were fortunate with injuries which resulted in a much better than expected season.

 

It was always going to be unsustainable without further significant investment and so instead of building on what we had achieved we have gone backwards thanks to Ashley's lack of ambition.

 

We can't expect to challenge for a top 4 place or become a top 5 or 6 club when we have one of the lowest net spends of any Premier League club in the last 5 years, it just won't happen. As far as I'm aware Pardew has said very little and that why he was appointed - he's prepared to go along with the policy

We all agree we need to spend more. But I don't expect the manager to come out and criticise the owner. I mean, who does?

So Pards has called off the club christmas party then. He says its out of respect for the fans, which is a nice little gesture I have to admit. Having said that I dunno how it is suppose to dent or raise the moral of the team.

Why do you play with the 4-4-2 formation when the team was more successful with 4-3-3 last year?

From John Mckean, Walker

 

WE have played 4-3-3 in the last three Premier League games.

 

We have had two defeats and a win.

 

Now we are looking for the balance to get the best out of the team at the moment.

 

When you have a creative force like Yohan Cabaye missing in the midfield it causes you a problem.

 

I think if we had won in two games in a system I thought would give us a platform to go forward with then I would stay with that system.

 

 

Fulham was the complete example of why the Premier League has to be liquid, why your formation sometimes has to be liquid.

 

We were using 4-3-3 and we were probably playing too high up the field.

 

Then we went to 4-4-2 and we looked so much better for it and I do not think any fan could argue with that. That is my call during the game and before the game it has to be my call to choose the system I think is best to eke out a result out.

 

I did that all last year, but when you are winning those questions are never raised.

 

Many times we went from a winning 4-4-2 performance to 4-3-3 and won.

 

I understand it is going to be questioned and I accept that when results are poor you can go down the line of ‘why don’t we stick with one system?’ or whatever, but we are not winning so I have to try to find a way.

 

Can Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse play together?

From Damian Gibson, York

 

I THINK in this particular year they have missed the creativeness of Hatem Ben Arfa for periods and Cabaye.

 

A lot of goals which Cisse scored last year were assisted by Cabaye and I think he has suffered mainly from his absence.

 

Demba has too but can they play as a pair?

 

Of course they can, are they playing well at the moment as a pair? No.

 

They are probably not but we have to keep working at it because they are two big assets for us.

 

You only have to see them on the training ground to realise they are goalscorers.

 

You want your goalscorers on the pitch, but I will not persist with it all year if it does not show its hand.

 

At the same time as fans have shown faith in me, I have to show faith with my best players and if they are having difficult times then sometimes you have to stay with them.

 

Jonas Gutierrez has been an example of that – he has not been playing great but I will stand with him to try to get him through it.

 

I will show loyalty to him and hopefully I will be rewarded but if I am not then I have to change it and give somebody a chance.

 

If Andy Carroll was available to take back, would you take him?

From Martyn Hancock, Bristol

 

I WOULD definitely consider it.

 

We are still light of a striker, I think it is a difficult window to purchase a striker in and my gut feeling is – so our fans know – I do not think that is going to happen because I do not think he will be available in this window.

 

I am not sure how serious his injury is either.

 

How many players are you looking to sign in January?

From Matthew Duggan, Hebburn

 

IT is a difficult window, but I think we would like to get – definitely – one player in and not lose anybody.

 

It could be we lose a player, you never know.

 

I lost Andy Carroll in this window and in a situation that was not too dissimilar to what I am in now two years ago, maybe it was a bit better.

 

However, if that is the case then we need two players and if we lose two then we need three.

 

That will be difficult in this window. I cannot see two players leaving but you can never count on one.

 

Why did the club not strengthen in the summer when you knew you were going to play in Europe?

From Leslie Gray, Newcastle upon Tyne

 

MYSELF, Mike and Derek all agree we should have bought one more senior player in here.

 

For whatever reason it did not happen.

 

We have learnt from that and that is what comes from the luxury which is the security of the owner.

 

The owner has great faith in my ability and I have to reward that with what I think when we make an error and say we have made a mistake.

 

He accepts that and as a team we have to learn from it. Myself Graham (Carr), Derek and Mike needed another player in and we did not get him but it is not Graham’s fault, Derek’s fault or Mike’s fault or mine – it is a collective thing and we have to take that all on the chin.

 

We got that wrong.

 

 

 

 

WE promised to put the five most popular questions to United boss Alan Pardew and the Toon chief has answered them here.

 

However, there were many more issues some fans wanted answers to.

 

Here are just a selection of some of the other questions currently on fans’ minds.

 

When will the Andy Carroll money be spent?

 

Do you work on set plays in training?

 

Do you think Newcastle’s second- string players are good enough to perform at Premier League level?

 

 

Do you regret Fraser Forster leaving?

 

How long should a young developing player need to prove he has what it takes?

 

Where do you see the club in five years times?

 

Is winning the Premier League a long-term plan for Newcastle United?

 

What is the priority for this season?

 

Are you worried there is no competition for the first eight or nine first-team players?

"We have learnt from that" :lol:

 

They needed to fuck up a(nother) transfer window to learn that not buying the players you need is a bad idea. Let's see what effect that learning has in the next window.

Doesnt even answer the first question.

 

He doesn't really, but he does give a full answer to something you specifically picked up on a couple of weeks back:

 

Why do you play with the 4-4-2 formation when the team was more successful with 4-3-3 last year?

From John Mckean, Walker

 

WE have played 4-3-3 in the last three Premier League games.

I understand it is going to be questioned and I accept that when results are poor you can go down the line of ‘why don’t we stick with one system?’ or whatever, but we are not winning so I have to try to find a way.

 

 

 

Does that help?...some of us said much the same at the time...

:D

 

“Andy's future was one of the items at the top of my agenda. He needs to stay. He is the number nine of Newcastle and is someone the fans have bought in to. The number nine shirt is legendary here and he has shown he's big enough to wear it. As long as I am here, I will be doing everything I can to make sure he stays. It would be a massive, massive blow if he left, but I am sure he will stay.”

 

You'd thing what he would learn is just to play cards close to his chest and see how things go.

“Gabby has a chance of being involved on Saturday. When we don’t have Gabby' date=' it does affect the opposition because when he’s in the team their left-back does not go anywhere.

 

“We’ve had problem with that in recent weeks in terms of the opposition left-back getting into our box and creating goals. If nothing else he will stop that and if Gabby plays as he has done in the European matches, then he will affect the game in a positive manner as well.”

Whoa, just logged into the sites after a couple of days and it seems Pards has been doing a whole lot of whining.

 

The usual utterances of a cornered manager. Really needs a win today or it may be over for him.

CT, it's moronic posts like this that make people call you an idiot.

 

Pardew is in no danger of losing his job as it stands.

Totally agree. I can't believe his job is even being questioned.

The most ridiculous thing about all of this is that CT had this bloke down for the England job and was worried that bigger clubs would poach him at the end of last season. He would come on gushing about interviews that Pardew had given and all the rest of it.

 

Literally 10 games later he starts talking about maybe the bloke isn't the right man for the job, and another 5 games after that he's a total busted flush and finished in top level management. Oh and now he doesn't like his negativity in interviews.

 

One bad run of form and he executes a total u-turn and wants a change of manager. Exactly what the club doesn't need.

Starting to realise now why a lot of the old posters on here aren't as active anymore in threads. So many people really don't know much about football.

Yeah how can they fail to see the greatness Pardew carries within him, no doubt the next mourinho with his fluent on-the-ground fotball.

Alan Pardew hopes to exploit Reds' shaky defence
