Game On! QPR v Newcastle

Game On at Loftus Road
Game On at Loftus Road
The message as we head into our penultimate game of the season is really quite simple – win at Loftus Road and we eliminate ourselves from the possibility of being relegated.

We can the head into the final game of the season – at home to Arsenal – without any real pressure knowing that we have Premier League football to look forward to next season.

A win at QPR, with their squad of expensive signings who will no doubt be looking for a way out of the club in the next few weeks, should be simple. Already resigned to relegation, and with the poorest home record in the league, they have nothing to play for other than pride whilst we have everything still on the line. However our away record this season suggests that we won’t win this game although I am of course waiting to be pleasantly surprised.

For some more background on the match, along with injury news, a look at the history of the fixture between the two clubs, some facts and stats for both sides and some random thinking at the end, why not head over and read my match preview which is online here.

The game itself is not being shown live on the TV here in the UK. However there are a number of overseas TV channels who have chosen to broadcast the match so catching a stream shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Hopefully. If you happen to find a good stream then please feel free to share it with your fellow Newcastle fans by leaving a link in the ‘comments’ section below.

Team news will be provided by myself today before I head off to work and miss the match, which is probably a good omen for us to be fair. I will endeavour to add the teamsheet in full at the bottom of this article.

Now is the time to deliver.

Howay the lads!

  2. When asked if NUFC could be in this position again, he said…

    “Never say never. It might happen next year, but we have to be prepared with cover”

    😯

    Get rid of this guy NOW!

  3. Axel, you look like a pretty guy. Troy likes fists.
    Maybe you could join us, with some oil?

  4. @Rod

    Troy prefers without oil. ideally he’ll have you wearing a boxing glove while holding a turnip 😯

  5. Well we were never in danger of qualifying for the Europa via the league or fair play so it’s a mute point.

  6. TGS @ 524 so would you be happier with the wally with the brolly ? seems like a side step to me , but if thats what your happy with 😯

  7. so is Laudrup on his way bring Michu with him. He’ll get us playing again..

    Can’t believe Troy had me sucked in with his long Presidents speech trying to rally the bloggers into supporting Pardew 🙄

    he plays **** football, picks the worse team available and goes defensive once we have a goal lead.

    We were very lucky 2day,

  8. Richie nice to hear a sensible voice out of all the doom. even after a win they are baying for blood without even realising that Jabba won’t hand over power to a proper manager .
    Where is that Wombat when your looking one

  9. Happy 😀

    Couldn’t give a toss about anybody else

    The Lads have stayed up

    Managers and “Owners” learn from experience – just like the rest of us do.

    We’ll come back strongerb 😉

  10. lmao just read the comments on the BBC site under their write up of Sunderland -Southampton game . Their is a mackem on there suggesting Green ****ed up on purpose with the Boswinga back pass because Pardew signed him for west ham just before he was sacked by them . 😀 😀 😀 😀

  11. @Mark

    Thank you. That was from the heart after 10 pints ! 😯

  12. Mark, he’s just texted me while I was in the 24hr B&Q.
    I got a super-rough bag of gravel. Apparently the anus ain’t seen nutting compared to these bad boys.

  13. Big Dave,
    McLaren has a far better track record than the “FOOL” ❗
    Winner at Boro 😉
    Winner FC Twente 😉

  14. Kim @ 535 well if that was the case we would now be in the top 8 even though Pardss has caused a lot of the problems himself, so injuries have been a big factor in this season ❓ as I said give me a top manager and I will gladly get behind him but I do believe that lots of things have went against Pards even though he has caused some of the **** himself.

    Mark what side are you on or are you still fluttering on the fence

      (Quote)

  15. Dave…To be honest I hope we do have a new manager in place next year as I’ve said before, but for today and just happy that the relegation thing has been put to bed….for another year 😉 😆

    Fizzin ! 😡

  17. @TGS 😉

    I cant believe the reality train are the only ones supporting Pardew. I thought the point of the reality train was ‘we’ll go no-where under Ashley’. well, we nearly went down and the train crew have come out backing them 😯 🙄

      (Quote)

  18. eh Rod, there he goes again, just fisting 😯 but now he wants a gan-bang with 4 of us. unsatisfiable Troy..

  19. Dave ,All I know is I want to be entertained and this season I havn’t been. I would happily have us finish 10th playing attractive football with lots of goals than 6/8th playing negative let’s just hang on footie. It makes for a very uncomfortable 90 mins and does my head in .

  20. In the Sky interview Pardew reckons injuries has cost him this season. Not an insignificant point…

    Who was missing today from Pardew’s supposed best toon line up ?
    Krul, Santone perhaps. Obviously not Danny Simpson otherwise he would have played ahead of Debuchy. Who else was missing from Pardews best line up. Obviously not Marveaux because although Pardew had him on the bench he chose to bring on the game changer Obertan. Staylor perhaps ?

    Pardew reckons his “best team” are a top 8 side.

    In the same spate of Sky interviews Harry Redknapp reckons the QPR team who played today lacked quality and wouldn’t even finish in the top 10 of the Championship.
    QPR battered us in the second half, as have most teams this season.

    Where does that leave the toon ?

    Who is telling the truth, Pardew or Redknapp ?

      (Quote)

  21. I want to see a decent team that wants to win not defend after one goal. The bloke has just said he’s not bothered if Arsenal beat us 4-0.. have some dignity, it wasnt that long ago we were beating them. Job done, we just escaped relegation tru a dodgy back-pass now lets finish on a high for the fans by getting walloped 4-0 🙄

  22. @Mark

    The reality train is right on track. We’ve always maintained the next stop is mediocrity.

    If you had actually boarded the reality train you would have received your free drink from Batty who is running up and down the aisles of the carriages with a fizzin bottle of champers singing the Blaydon Races! 😛

  23. lol MM

    thats a question and a half

    “Who is telling the truth, Pardew or Redknapp ?

    one habitual liar and the other a deluded bull****ter

  24. Troy,
    In fairness mate, the stench of your breath from licking Pardew’s arse would floor us all anyway 😉
    Like the idea of mud wrestling wor Kim ❗ Can I bring my box brownie 😆 😆 😆

  25. Mark,
    Care to join me on the “Expectation Express” ❓
    It will be released upon the “FOOL’S” sacking/resiganation 😉

  26. @TGS 😆

    he’s that far up it, Pardews an extension of troy face. surely an unfair advantage.

    aye MM, still trying to work it out 😛

  27. Reet am off to bed with the image of Troy in his cape and silver doc Martins doing the dead fly caught in a thigh lock by Kimmy while Rodz stands close by with a bag of B&Q gravel and a demented look on his face 🙂

    Watch out Troy, your dealing with some tough mofos there mate 🙂

    oh ..by the way…TTBAWA …we’re staying up…wehey… 😆

  28. Kim @ 553 I would agree I would prefer to be entertained bu IMO a team with Benny will entertain, I was just making the point that if we had Benny ( our best player ) all season we would have finished atleast 8th place

      (Quote)

  29. aye TGS, sounds good m8.

    The reality train will still be talking about J Kinnear signing, but will probably give him a couple of years to impress 😆

  30. get-in MOTD just starting. I think ive seen it 4times this season due to the incompetence of our team. but for the joy of Boswinga I can now watch it again 😀

  31. I’d love to get some of the forum wide batch of dope that everyone seemed to be on when saying Debuchy was a step up from Simpson. He’s no better defensively, offensively and seems to give up constantly by getting red cards on purpose and just pulling shirts constantly.

    £6m for him and £250,000 for Simpson. Value for money. Not.

    Higher than us this season for sure……………and they won a TROPHY 😉 😉

  34. TGS so you don’t want to tell me or are you not sure me old bean 😀

    FJ I have said all along Simmo is a lot better than people make him out to be. But I do think like Mbiwa it will take Debuchy a while to get used to the Prem and the speed of it

  35. funkyjesus

    French international, Debuchy, no better than Simpson?

    Riiiight. 🙄

    Let’s leave the OTT statements until all of our players have had a full preseason under their belts, eh?

      (Quote)

  36. Big Dave,

    I agree, Simpson has long been given the shaft. I also find it ironic Williamson played a big part in us staying up after that “the other guy” ****e Pardew pulled.

    Infact, Simmo’s performance last, Willo today and Routledge running Swansea against Wigan the other day, it’s quite funny all the guys Pardew’s treated like dirt have saved Newcastle.

      (Quote)

  37. Big Dave,
    I thought that I answered it! higher than us this season, but with a trophy 😥 😥

      (Quote)

  38. The Kid,

    What difference does it make if he is an international. Emile Heskey has a ****load of caps, would you take him? Boumsong has plenty of caps too, would you wish we had kept him?

    That’s the sort of bonkers thinking that’s had England playing a boys club team as opposed to those who had the form to deserve it.
