Newcastle struggle ahead of Sunday's St Mary's trip

Daily Echo: Alan Pardew Alan Pardew

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has challenged his players to avoid an unwanted hat-trick as he desperately attempts to inject new life into their season ahead of a trip to his former club Saints.

The Magpies slipped to a second successive home defeat and into the bottom half of the Premier League table on Saturday when Swansea left St James’ Park with a deserved 2-1 victory.

Coupled with last Sunday’s 1-0 loss to West Ham, the latest setback left the natives in a restless mood as hopes of matching last season’s top-five finish were dealt a further blow.

When they arrive at St Mary’s on Sunday the Magpies and their manager, axed by Saints in 2010, will still be searching for a first away league victory of the campaign.

But Pardew’s men will run out in front of their home fans once again on Thursday to face Portuguese outfit Maritimo in a game which could clinch their progression to the knockout stage of the Europa League, and the 51-year-old is hoping that will be the springboard they need.

He said: “We certainly don’t want to lose three home games on the trot, that would be a blow. It’s a big game for us because if we can win it, it guarantees qualification, and that’s what we need to do, get one hurdle out of the way and then look for our first win away from home in the Premier League in the next game. They are the two immediate hurdles in front of us.”

I have it on quite good authority that Alan Pardew is one of the biggest c0cks in football. Which is saying something.

I'm glad we got rid and hope we absolutely wipe the floor with the bar codes.

Alan Pardew and our beloved NC fell out big time.i think it won't only be a football match it will be a personal grudge match.Pards will fire his lads up big time.Nigel has got to do the same to keep our momentum going.Newcastle have slipped of late so they are now in 12th position.so they are a bottom half of the table team.A win for us on sunday will put us only 3 points behind them having played the same number of games each.Suddenly from being a potential top 4 side they will be relegation candidates.they can not afford to lose the match and realistically neither can we.
They are in europa league action on thursday at home so they dont have to jet away to the far flung corners of europe.But i still expect Pards to rest key players and keep them fresh for the ST MARYS battle.
Whilst a point will be ok for us i feel that we have to go all out for the win.
I would play the same x1 as at qpr with the possible exception of bringing in Kelvin Davis for Gazza.Also i would have tadpole LEE on the bench and bring him on to replace either Ricky or Gaston if either tire in the 2nd half.
One other point rumours are rife that Chelsea may sack ROBERTO DE MATTEO if they dont qualify for the next round of the Champions League.If roberto becomes redundant i think that maybe NC will use any slip up by the Saints between now and Xmas to give Nigel his marching orders and bring in his fellow Italian-Swiss chum Roberto as manager.So Nigel will have to go all out to win as many matches as possible rather than settle for draws..As lou reed said THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

Looks like a cut and paste job from the latest tabloid rags CB. Seems like the premier league can't think beyond sacking the manager if a few games are lost and clowns like you buy into this garbage.

HA HA SAID THE CLOWN i fear that you under estimate the italian ways of NC or the bully boy tactics of Russian Billionaires. What was it BADEN POWELL taught us all those years ago amongst all the dib dib dobbing and ARKALA's. SOMETHING LIKE BE PREPARED.
Football is more like a game of chess these days.You got to think of a dozen or so likely moves before they MIGHT happen.Because it is only at the moment a jimmycase of FRESH GARBAGE because it has not yet happened does not mean that it will not happen or that i want it to happen but in premier league football at the moment money is the be all and end all so whatever the club and whatever the result managers only keep their job because of the various madcap whims of too many unpredictable owners.

For Saints the team is gelling well and playing great football.

Newcastle are having a stumble in their form and Colocchini is out, a huge loss for them.

Well you know what Italians are like when other Italians are around, and they are both Italian so I imagine that they will both what Italians do...Just because niether manager has been sacked doesnt mean that one of them is not Italian (like NC) and after all because of his Italian roots he is likely to break with habit of employing a young English Managers and go for a fellow Italilan. The other Italian that he might go for is Paulo De Canio...I understand that he is also in a prime possition to succees Adkins because like NC he also shops at Waitrose

I don't want to crow i told you so but now i am worried about nigel's position.The players and the crowd must really get behind him on sunday and make sure we get 3 points on sunday.i am sure NC will not want Pardew to be going back up north with any points.It will be interesting to see whether NC and AP actually meet up on sunday and exchange any fraternal greetings.methinks both should be big enough to bury the hatchet and move on.

We all owe Alan Pardew a huge amount of thanks and respect. He came when we were in the 3rd tier of English football and assembled a squad of players very quickly. He is also the one that brought Sir Ricky in too.

Anyone that gives him **** is a complete tool. Lets show him some appreciation and then get behind Nigel and the team.
