Game On! Hull v Newcastle

Game On at the KC Stadium
Game On at the KC Stadium
Good afternoon all and welcome to this ‘Game On’ article which will cover our trip to Hull today.

A last minute win against Aston Villa last time out stopped the rot for United but only time will tell if that victory was a rare bright spot in what has been a poor 2014 or whether we have genuniely turned the corner.

The big team news ahead of the match for Newcastle is that Fabricio Coloccini will miss the game on compassionate grounds after travelling back to Argentina following a family bereavement. For the rest of the early team news check out the match preview and for full team news check the bottom of this article just after 2pm.

The match is not being broadcast live here in the UK due to the regulation kick-off of 3pm although a few overseas broadcasters are showing the game so if you do happen to come across a reliable stream then please leave a link to it in the ‘comments’ section below.

We’ve not beaten Hull since 1998 and they’ve been playing some decent stuff of late although they have struggled in front of their own fans. Although not safe just yet it surely won’t be lomg before Hull can plan for another season in the Premier League. Our job today at least is to make them wait a little longer!

Howay the lads!

  1. Santii 😆 , know what you mean but it’s a perfect way to keep the viewers tuned in tonight, hope not though.


  2. Santii…Aye but if they put sunderland on first everyone would switch off so technically putting them on last keeps people tuned in 😉


  3. Richie – that’s what happened to me when I tried to pick out the stand out player 😆
    I loved Anita’s reaction too and was pleased he had a good game coz I think the spotlight has been unfairly put on him to try and fill that hole Cabaye left.
    Remys goals are obviously priceless but I think De Jong played a great role today and allow the attack to flow through him without having any attempts himself. Goof, Remy and Sissoko seemed to enjoy playing off him today.


  4. already talk of an 8 match ban – over reaction but you just can’t do that as a manager – what the took was he thinking the idiot, he should have taken a dive when Meyler pushed him and gotten him sent off – has he learnt nothing in 30 years in the game …. oh hold on, going by his tactics he hasn’t


  5. Anita and Tiote were very good – hard to pick a MOM as there were good performances all over the pitch, Krul had a decent game apart from punching the ball into his own net!


  6. Having reviewed the Pardew incident again, I think its a complete over reaction. He led with his shoulder for gods sake and I’m not sure there was much head action ( 😯 ) at all!


  7. Alan Pardew:

    Leaves Reading to go to West Ham a day after saying he wouldn’t leave – results in legal battle.

    Fights Arsene Wenger on touchline while at West Ham.

    Gets in trouble on Match of the Day for saying a player was “raped”.

    Gets hounded out of Charlton for being poor.

    Allegedly doinks his players’ wife and gets sacked from Southampton.

    Pushes a linesman while at Newcastle.

    Calls Pellegrini a “****ing old ****” while at Newcastle.

    Headbutts opposing player while at Newcastle.

    That isn’t even touching the record breaking loss streaks and games without wins he has at every club he has managed. Have I missed anything? lol


  8. lmao Richie 😆 😆

    They could always just tune in 15 minutes later. I always did think it started to early 😀

    Is that our biggest win under Pardew (not including stoke)? I know we have won by 3 goals before but just by scoring four its bigger than 3-0 😀


  9. It seems I have. I just looked at his Wikipedia page and there are about another five incidents I didn’t know of, including him making fun of West Ham fans while managing the club and being called a Xenophobe by Wenger when he – now quite ironically – complained about too many foreign players playing for Arsenal.

    I think he didn’t get the memo Vince McMahon isn’t buying the club.


  10. Funky – in fairness to Pardew though, Pellegrini is a ****ing old ****! 😆

    Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing? – I mean there’s nee way we would have sacked JFK if we knew we’d need him to stand in for 8 games while Pards is banned 😆

    On a plus side, it means Pardew can work on his summer transfer targets during his absence and it won’t interfere with his WC punditry 😉


  11. OK the bloke pushed his head forward but nee way was it a vicious heedbut FFS talk about over the top reactions . He wont be sacked and he wont resign and while we are at it he was pushed and their player got a yellow for it but nowt is being said about that . Pushing the opposotion manager in his technical area is ok then is it . Feeking southern media bashing NUFC again .


  12. Agree with Toonsy, the self rightous are out in force tonight! At least Pardz is showing some passion! The game has become rife with generic quotes from managers who are effectively muzzled by constraints put on them by the fa and their clubs.. good to see a bit of fire in the belly!
