Dident Know Newcastle had internet

 

Have all you lot drove down to a Mc Donalds in Leeds to use there WiFi

 

Proper shite today your lot

For future reference it's "didn't", not "dident", it should be "driven" not "drove and it's "their", not "there".

 

I wouldn't want your wit to be wasted just because you're thick as shit. :hi:

Disappointing game. I didn't think we'd win but I thought we'd make more of a game of it. First half was one way traffic. Krul's kicking was dreadful. Noticed jonas kicking off with him a few times for not throwing it out when he was in space. We made a better go of it second half but by then it was too late, not that it would have mattered anyway. The strikers were poor too I thought. Couldn't make it stick up front all game. HBA poor too - shame.

 

All in all though an amazing season that won't be spilled by a handful of poor away performances. I've been to our four first away says of the season. Might not bother next season with this run!

Delighted that Cabaye clouted a ball boy mind; the French have higher expectations of children's behaviour (& a Socialist President) than the odious Cahill does.

 

This brother of a criminal needs to be kicked out of the game forever.

Everton's a tough place to go when they're on a roll. Never mind. I'd have taken 5th and EL if it was on offer at the beginning of the season tbh.

People were happy to take '6th place' as late as March iirc. I agree with all those sentiments but i am a bit disappointed after today mainly because we played so poorly.

We should be unhappy with today's result and performance: no excuses. A better standard should be demanded, as it is at other top clubs. For starters, a certain level of performance and commitment is the least the fans deserve, especially as travelling to away games costs so much money these days.

 

I was disappointed with Pardew's interview in which he played down how bad the performance was. Contrast that with Moye's interview in which he was asked if he was happy with the result and their league position. He said he'd be happy if they came 1st, and would have reason to celebrate if they gained entry to the CL. While that level of expectation may seem ridiculous, the least we should expect is that we compete in every game, and play to win every game: any less is simply unacceptable for a club of our stature with the current squad. And today, we did not compete in the first half: a recurring problem in several performances this season. Credit to Pardew for the changes at half time. Some of the players should be ashamed of themselves today.

It was a replica of the car crash against Wigan and non shows against Wolves and the mackems (first half) earlier in the season. 4-4-2, hoofball up field hopelessly and none of our passing coming off. The 4-4-2 works better against the bigger sides when we're willing to bide our time and they're not snapping at our heals and closing us down as much, but it hasn't been particularly effective with Ba and Cisse because none of the long balls actually seem to come off.

 

See Chelsea away when we were given more time on the ball, we were more patient and we defended competently. Against Wigan and Everton we were not willing to play the long game and got caught out because they won every long ball we played, they forced us into errors and found gaps at the back.

Totally Bizarre match day for me.

 

Started with the Hare Krishnas in Newcastle and then I arrive at my local to watch the match to find it taken over by 100 travelling Man United fans and assorted Greater Manchester Police!

 

Then discover that no pub within a few miles is showing the match due to there being very few available streams!

 

A few minutes to kick off and we find the local "gentlemans club" is not only showing the match but is also allowing women in on match days :lol: (well someones got to wash the glasses)

 

A cracking little private boozer it turned out to be. Absolutely nipping clean and a loverl array of lagers and real ales.

 

Not long into the match it was obvious it was going to be one of those games so took the opportunity to introduce myself to each one of the real ales a few times. Suffering today.

 

Not much to be said about the game other than I think we have just run out of steam.

 

A great season and really looking forward to next season. Hoping we dont lose too many.

Slightly annoys me that the bad performances are passed off as 'one of those days' or just 'run out of steam'.

 

We can be critical off woeful performances while also recognising the huge strides taken this season, I'd hope Pardew concentrates on the failings in away performances like yesterday, Wigan, Spurs, Fulham, Liverpool and Norwich, because there were quite a few of "those days" this season, not where we lost valiantly, despite best endeavour, but where we just never showed up at all. You don't improve by looking on the bright side and ignoring it.

 

Happy as anyone with the overall season, let's kick on and hopefully get some better first team options than Simpson, Williamson, Perch, the Taylors, Obertan, Gosling....

I dont disagree with you, I just dont really want to dwell on it personally.

 

Sometimes when the same players play as poorly as that its too simplistic just to put it down to tactics or formations etc.

 

Anyway those of you who want to pick it apart can pick away.

I think Pardew was right in something he said a month or so back. He highlighted that the players that had been brought in so far had mostly been flair "exciting" players. What we now needed were not perhaps as high key but crucial non the less. In other words players to make us harder to score against. The likes of Cisse and HBA could get in to most teams in the league. At the back though Simpson, Perch and williamson would not. We need our back line bringing up to the same quality as the rest. This would make us harder to beat perhaps and we wouldnt have as many games like this one.

 

Everton deserved the win, but the question rightly is why in some games do we just look so far off the pace. This isnt playing well and getting beat by a better side. this is another Wigan etc where for some reason we just dont turn up in the first half and dont seem to have the ability to come back from a goal down.
