Whooosh. Fact is we have lacked going forward in the last few games, saying that doesnt mean I expected us to be playing like Barcelona by now. Or that I want Pards replaced, been very much in the keep him camp during our slump last year mostly because of the limitations and problems we've faced that you've tried to explain and that many of us have been offering to the idiots who wanted him out.

 

So calm down mate :lol:, saying we're lacking on one front or the other does not mean the manager needs sacking. Its just a concern many of us undoubtedly share.

 

Who said the manager needs sacking? Am reasonably happy with Pardew, hes as good as we'll get for the money, but he's limited. For the record am perfectly calm, my pulse rate is very low. Even when am adminstering the final cut to cheeky fuckers who patronise me, it rarely rises above normal :)

 

Has he dodged a performance related bullet given the furore over other events in the game?

 

Losing to relegation bait would normally see a backlash, did the loss of Cabaye, Haidara and Debuchy mitigate that?

 

I think we've played quite well in the last few games but not scored a lot of goals. That may not be enough for some but after our pre January travails I'll take it. As long as we're winning at the moment then style and scoring hatloads can wait until the squad is developed next season. After the first half yesterday if you'd offered me a point I'd have taken it with both hands and we were cheated out of it in the end. Cisse wouldve buried 2 of the chances this time last year. But we cant complain too much tbh. As 2J says, 5 first choice players now injured, its going to be a tricky end to the season iyam.

Surprised Chez Given didn’t just install him as his PA if he’s available on those sort of wages. Imagine the champagne enemas that they could’ve had together

Your reply to my previous post implied you thought I wanted Pards even though no indication whatsoever of that was given. I suppose you were speaking more in general then.

Looked a little worried in the post match interview. He's under a bit of pressure now. Even more so now that O'Niell has got the sack. We are right down there in a relegation battle.

 

I think most suspected we could get a hiding today, they are a great side but we werent "at it" today. Similar first half perfomances have also cost us a fair few times this season. For some reason, quite often, we dont seem to start on the front foot in games.

 

Fulham at home is a big game, a crucial 3 points. Then the mackems, a win there to help them back on there way to the championship would be massive.

 

Time to get your training and tactics sharp Pardew, equally we need to see more from our key "purple" players.

 

A nice performance from a stronger side at Benfica would lift the spirits. I'd be delighted with a score draw.

 

Time to show your mettle.

I'd be surprised if Pardeau got the sack this season tbh, the first half of the season was somewhat handicapped what with not strengthening so I suspect the board will shoulder some of the blame there. That said it's also been quite obvious a few times that the wrong tactics were played in some matches. I'm undecided but the main question is IF we did part with Pards who would we replace him with? Who's available of a good enough standard to take us to the next level and who'd want to work with Ashley and Llambias?

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has said he will not change his approach to the Europa League despite seeing the Magpies slip closer to the Premier League relegation zone.

 

Pardew's side are in 15th place, three points above the relegation zone, after a 4-0 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.

 

But the manager said he would not alter his attitude to European competition, even though he believes the Europa campaign has cost them league points.

 

He told the Journal: "Apart from Bordeaux away, we've been very, very strong in Europe, but we've lost bodies in this campaign. It has cost us points and, without a shadow of a doubt, we would not be in this position if we were not in the Europa League.

 

"However, we are, and we've approached the Europa League every time to try and win the game. You can fault us for that, but we think that's the right approach and we will carry that forward into Thursday.

 

"There are too many games in the competition. I am never going to change my opinion on that, even if we win the thing."

 

The manager added: "We always knew it would be the remaining games in the Premier League which would be the important ones, and that isn't going to change.

 

"After the Stoke game I said was an important win for us and put us in a position where I felt 40 points was achievable, and I have not changed my opinion. You need 40 points this year for sure."

 

Meanwhile, defender Steven Taylor has dismissed talk of the club being further drawn into the relegation scrap, saying he believed they would secure their top-flight status soon.

 

"I am confident in my team-mates," he told the Evening Chronicle. "We are not looking down - we are looking up. We are looking at who we can catch and chase.

 

"In the next few weeks I am looking to see this all wrapped up in the Premier League, and hopefully we can look forward to the Europa League."

His tactics away from home this season have been abysmal.

 

He's happy to sit back and get pummelled instead of giving it a go and playing to our strengths.

 

Totally agree. It's got to the point where it's almost not worth watching because the result is so predictable. If it wasnt for a couple of last minute winners at home we'd be as good as down by now

Not saying they are lucky, more so that we have only just won 3 games at home this season (WBA, Chelsea & Stoke). Obviously every team can throw out similar things but the point is we have not been convincing all season and home wins have papered over some mediocre performances, Chelsea excepted

Doubt we'll be pressing in the Europa away from home. Think that's Pardew trying to mislead them.....also goading them with the 8th place comments....inviting them to press and we'll be using the same old tactics of trying to hit them on the break.
