AlanPardew2I don’t think there was anything more that Alan Pardew and his team could have done last night, I really felt sorry for them at the end of the match and especially Pardew when he had to face the cameras afterwards.

The manager had put his best team out, they’d got the better of a very good team over the ninety minutes and only poor match officials, bad luck and the odd bit of poor finishing meant that Newcastle won’t be taking at least a two goal lead to the Ukraine.

Alan Pardew post-match;

“I can’t play all of the team on Thursday and then all of the team against Southampton, we just aren’t going to have the energy.

I’m going to have to make changes, either in the second leg of this, or in the Premier League game.

I need to get that right because I’m really desperate to go through, even more so with those two decisions going against us.

The last thing you want to do is look back at the end of the tie and say we should have won two nil”.

Sadly I think that is exactly what we will be all saying because even with our best side out, the visitors looked very dangerous.

Alan Pardew  has said he can’t play the same eleven in both matches and the Europa leg has to be the one to suffer. Maybe if Newcastle had sneaked an extra 3 points at White Hart Lane they could have had made the match in the Ukraine the priority.

However, if you want to argue the point then I can only suggest you look at the league table, end of story.

It takes time to go through the 80 applicants they supposedly have. Must be hard to find a cheap yes man with no backbone or pride who is desperate for a low paying job while being the buffer for abuse aimed at fatty

Sadly its the same old same old and it will take a lot for it to get through to some S.T buyers that nothing is going to change. What is needed is a new chairman who knows what he is doing as clearly Charnley does not, M.A should know this by now and by default admitted it by saying he was shocked to be in that situation at X-mas ( or that was my interpretation ). We need a new chairman with football acumen a new coach, anyone other than Carver. If Carver stays IMHO it will further destabilize the club ( and its bad enough already ) and cause problems with recruitment and retention's, who wants to work or come under this regime? Great article and yes time is ticking away just like the feeling of support for the regime. M.A said he would maintain the investment, well £YY x 0 = 0  and always will do, so no investment then. I only hope those who would by S.T's wait until there is some positive investment and something to look forward to next season, as buying now just fills his wallet again as usual. This need to change. Blanket waving and singing songs has no effect at all on this owner, so think before you buy.

The club is banking on us to renew season tickets before anything is done, just on his word of mouth, I hope most will hold out till at least we know who's going to be head coach, if it's carver then I can see very little sales of tickets, I'd be more happy if chumps comes out and states carver won't be considered for head coach, at least that would be a start, the longer it drags on the less chance it's going to be someone else, personally I wouldn't wait till carver gets back of holiday, he should have cancelled it till we find out who it is going to be, but sounds like he already has the job, if so that's me finnished with club till he's gone,

well said Dean that is the reality in my opinion. I seen a couple of ashleys puppets come thru the station on sunday heading off back to London 1st class. well served from a  great day out. running some/part of this sinking club 280 miles away. this demonstrates the total lack of interest. Is Ashley really happy with the job charley is doing? I wonder what is charnleys brief re his job description? Lots of things have to start happening now to change things for the better and this involves the big man opening the purse strings, however, the fact is we do not have the staff to get all the jobs done. I will wait another few weeks when everyone is back from their holidays. The fact remans that any new manager won't be able to concentrate on the technical side 100% because the amount of help and support just isn't there.

The key to everything that will happen is the appointment of a new coach, Charnley has been publically given the responsibility, he needs stop delaying and get on with the job. He won't because 'John Carver and his staff were on holiday and it wouldn't be fair to them to appoint somone while they were away' or some other lame excuse. I suspect out of all the rubbish Carver came out with, him and Charnley do like each other and Charnley would like him to continue. The Chronicle amazingly suggested Charnley might stick with Carver and "hope he makes a good start to the season"

I can't imagine why though, it seems to me Charnley's head is firmly on the line, he got away with January's decision to appoint the village idiot , I suspect his lord and master will not be happy if he stuffs it up again.

I've said it once and keep repeating it, we could buy a team of world class players in the summer and Carver wouldn't be able to make a team of them. He's an incompetent bully who will never be successful.

The complete structure of the club is Shambolic, Charnley hasn`t a clue what to do & Carver is Toxic when it comes to the football side of things

DOOMED !

Tend to agree. Depressing isn't it. It suddenly dawned on me this morning that the policy of no net spend doesn't really sit well with Ashley's 'I'll continue to invest' line from the recent interview does it. I can't see anything changing soon so I certainly won't be buying tickets, merchandise or anything else. I've decided that I'll be an NUFC MOTD supporter next season, and give my money to my local league 2 team instead - at least I'll know it's going back into the club, rather than an aggressive, tacky and exploitative sports retailer.

Good article we must not ease the pressure on them to act. Having said that you wouldn't expect a running commentary you can't do business like that. I don't have the know how but we need one of those daily countdown things to keep the them honest... Did I just say keep, I meant force them to be honest for a change sorry.
