  1. MM-FOOD where do you base your facts on that Ajax supporters had a good laugh when we bought Anita ? he was the engine of their title winning team at that time and most Ajax supporters that i know would love him back .

    I’m not saying that Anita was a bad player. He played a good 2nd half of the season 11/12 as a defensive midfielder. And many Ajax fans were happy to have him, because he did well and is a home-grown player. (He joined Ajax when he was nine.) But they didn’t mind selling him for 8,5 million euro’s.

    I’m Dutch and I had a hard time explaining to Ajax supporters why we bought Anita for that money. And frankly I still don’t know why we paid 8.5 million euro’s for him.

  7. MM foods – to be fair Β£8.5m for Anita seemed steep to me as well. I didn’t know much about the lad when we signed him, but didn’t really know much about Tiote or Cabaye either. When you think Tiote only cost Β£3.5m and Cabaye around Β£5m – the cost of Anita. I still think Anita will come good eventually though as it seems to be the physical side he’s struggling most with. It took Colo a couple of seasons, so hopefully Anita will be good un.
    As for Siem, I think he’s a good replacement for Cabaye who I don’t think was a play maker either. I agree with you we need a play marker but I also think we need a midfielder with a good range of passing – like Cabaye did. I think either Siem or Shelvey would be a good replacement for Cabaye but we’d still need Grenier or Cabella type player as well.

    Anita hasn’t shown his worth, yet, I would give him another season and if he doesn’t step up another notch I would expect him to be replaced.

  10. Its a shame we couldnt have signed De Jong in the summer. If he had played in a confident Newcastle team, With Cabaye and Ben Arfa pulling the strings early season he may well have nicked a few goals and settled down.

    Β£8m is too much considering other alleged targets like Ba, Zaha, Morrison and Capel are available for less and wouldnt represent anything like the same risk (On the field in morrisons case he wouldnt anyway)

  13. The problem for De Jong is he wasn’t getting any game time before coming to us and to jump straight into the physicality of the PL on the back of no game time and when the club are in stinking form too is a hard ask of any player. That said, early doors I had high hopes as I had seen some good runs and nice passes from him but then he just seem to fizzle out really to the point of looking really poor πŸ™ . Maybe he was trying too hard, whatever happens if he stays he has to bulk up ,do some gym work like Anita is doing. I like Anita and think he is much better than he’s given credit for, I do prefer him further forward though.

  14. mm_food v Axel, our two resident experts on all things Dutch…

    If we spend 8 mill on De Jong then someone really needs to have there head examined….most probably the same bloke who paid so much for Anita. So many great players have came to the EPL from Holland, and we are on the verge of signing a second diddy in De Jong. I watched the bloke in the Bundesliga and he was absolutely garbage…in fact it’s been shown during his loan spell at the toon…

  15. I haven’t seen anything from DeJong that would make me want to keep him , I can’t believe I would ever say this but Strolla has showed more 😯

  16. @ Sharpy

    I’m sorry if I used the term playmaker wrong. I agree with you that we need a replacement for Cabaye who i consider a deep-liying playmaker. Siem de Jong is no replacement for Cabaye. De Jong isn’t a player who gives long passes, or through balls. De Jong is an attacking midfielder or second striker, that needs to be on the receiving end of a pass. Because he knows when to run deep, and pop up in the 18yrd box to score a goal.

    At Ajax Eriksen dictated the game with his passes. Not de Jong.

      (Quote)

  17. He showed bits and bobs against Villa and Hull but nowhere near enough for Β£8m outlay considering the options out there for round about the same price

    The team havent given him much of a platform but i was expecting more

  18. MM_FOOD what are your thought on players from the eredivisie that we should be looking at ? For me if we are going to buy from the Eredivisie then Boetius ,Finnbogasson , Wijnaldum , De Vrij and Siem de Jong are the players we should be having a good look at .

    Sh*t Troy, that is the most ignorant thing i have heard on this blog.

    Perhaps a joke, perhaps not.

    I was under the impression that you had independent thought instead of just regurgitating the nonsense spouted out by morons – not sure why i had that impression of you as you’ve only ever posted nonsense.

    I’ll leave it to Aussie to beat some sense into you.

    Interesting that you chose extremist islam in your post. No doubt you were saying the same thing about Jews when you were around in the early part of the 20th centuary.

    You probably said the same thing about blacks & gays too.

  46. I have said before that if we are to continue buying cheap continental players, then Percy Parsnip must be replaced with a coach from Europe who understands how they need to play and train and can get the best out of them.
    If it will work or be successful is a moot point, but has to be given a chance at least.

      (Quote)

  47. Having said that, If Percy Parsnip manages to get 1 point at a minimum tomorrow, then I will admit that I have been wrong about him, and he will deserve another season, to turn this club around.
    My hunch tho is that he wont have a clue how to approach the match, will set us up ultra defensive, and we will get royally humped as per usual.
    Cant wait to get this match over and done with, if I’m honest.

  48. Meanwhile, back at the article … The question that immediately sprung to mind when I was reading was: why are you apathetic now and you weren’t at the beginning of the season? The financial aspects of football haven’t changed. The culture at the club hasn’t changed. All the things you mention in the article are the same as they were at the start of the season. So why the apathy now?

    For me, it’s not so much apathy as frustration. Frustration in that we were again on the brink, then let it slip – and let it slip badly. The causes of that seem to be the sale of Cabaye and Pardew’s ban. Together, they seem to have affected all kinds of cohesion in both the playing side of things and the coaching side of things. Exactly what went wrong is hard to pin down (despite – or maybe because of – the speculations of fans and media). We’ll never really know the truth of what went on there, instead we’ll be left with our favourite fantasies and beliefs.

    Whatever the cause, it showed the club’s biggest deficiency: lack of depth, lack of options. And that sits squarely with a lack of investment by the powers that be – in player and administration terms (ie running the club professionally).

    So I agree that the whole culture of the club needs a makeover, but that has been the case for a number of years now.

    He prefers to visit the hostels around the west end of the city where the drunks sit and drink from 8am. He waits til they are sozzled at midday and he turns up in his white Boss Hogg suit and Stetson and hands out 10 pences as if they are gold coins and takes centre stage, talking about the virtues of Mike Ashley.
