Game On! Queens Park Rangers Vs Newcastle United

Hoops v Magpies
Hoops v Magpies
Newcastle United travel to Queens Park Rangers today in the Barclays Premier League (3pm kick-off).
The Magpies go into the fixture at Loftus Road having secured their first point in nine games with a 1-1 home draw against West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
While Rangers were hammered 6-0 at Manchester City, which confirmed that they will be playing Championship football next season. We go into this game in desperate need of a win to try to stop us really going down to the wire in the relegation scrap to confirm the last relegation place, also a win will be our first double of the season.
Speaking ahead of todays game John Carver said “If I was Chris Ramsey and I had just lost at Man City by the score line they lost then I’d be at my players to put on a show,” “Let’s not forget this is their last home game in the Premier League for at least one season and they did take a beating last weekend, so I’d want my players to put on a good show.
“Yes, they may be a little more relaxed, yes he might play some younger players, but there’s one or two players in that team that will have a point to prove and will want to go out on a high.
“We know how difficult it is to go to Man City and get a result but that will drive them forward now.
“I have sympathy for Chris – he hasn’t got a great deal of experience managing in the Premier League but he’s a good guy and a good coach and hopefully he’ll get the job next season.
“But for now there are some big characters in the QPR dressing room that won’t want to do us any favours at the weekend.
“I’m looking forward to it because it’s going to be a big challenge for us, there will be pressure on but we will have to embrace that.”

  1. Magnificent record under Carver wot? 10 points from 57. Beautiful Johnny C. Make sure you come to the Blog Hobbit awards night John. We have something special in mind for you. Two wins from 19 games. Yes, it will have to be a very special award indeed.

  2. Geordie two that’s probably because they beat the worst team in the PL. We deserve to be relegated next week. Our fate depends on Manu. Carver needs to be sacked. He is utter tripe mate.

      (Quote)

  3. Thank goodness we’re all glass half full supporters on here. Yes, this is clearly a time for optimism. 😯

  4. Frustrated as hell. Carver is a ****e manager, the players are shot of confidence and any strength in depth that we had has been destroyed by injuries, suspensions of stupid January trading.

    But I blame Ashley and Charnley. Carver is a useless manager but quitting now would disrupt things even more. I have respect for a man doing his best (even though his best is woeful) for a club that he loves because the alternative is even worse.

  5. No, this is not a time for negativity Terry mate. Just ask TDS. He’s a glass half full man. Half full of what I’m not quite sure. πŸ˜† Just teasing you TDS. I know you’re becoming a bit concerned about our future now.

      (Quote)

  6. Geordie two do you still want that sports direct mug or should I give it to TDS to cheer him up instead.

      (Quote)

  7. You had better give it to TDS Terry mate. He’s been a big supporter of the regime in the past you know. πŸ˜†

      (Quote)

  8. Said many times…I get what Ashley has been trying to do, and I don’t believe it’s what many of the glass half empty brigade think, I just don’t understand why he constantly thinks he’ll achieve it while cutting corners. Don’t get why he keeps making those mistakes.

    He’s all about the value of his assets. His decisions have been stupid. So I blame Ashley and Charnley. Some of the players aren’t playing for us too. Carver is trying…just ****.

      (Quote)

  9. Our best strikers back next week Williamson. His awesome not only at attacking but defending as well.

      (Quote)

  10. Well I would think this result will put the supporters in the right frame of mind for the last match of the season. Johnny C. will be trying mightily to get his win percentage above 10%! Stunning really. Brilliant hire Ashley. Kudos to you. :mrgreen:

      (Quote)

  11. TAE @218: Refs make mistakes. It is not a ****ing conspiracy man. It is Carver and Ashley. Carver because he is a dolt and doesn’t know what he is doing – all you have to do is read any quote, see any press conference to realise that Carver is a moron. He is an imbecile, pure and simple, and the players must know it.

      (Quote)

  12. I’ll explain it one more time for you TDS mate. Ashley is a billionaire scumbag who thought that the same methods that work at ShiteDirect would work with a football club.

  13. past caring,bring on relegation couldnt give a ****.
    like stu says it will hurt jabba more than me.
    the more hurt that ****a gets the better.

  14. Players who need to be gotten rid of:
    Colo, Willo, Saylor, Raylor, Jonas (legs are gone), Obertan, Tiote, Anita (too small), Cisse (a bigger flake I have never seen), Sammeobi (no improvement whatsoever). Players who will be desperate to leave: Sissoko, Krul, and Janmaat. And Ashley is going to fix this lot in the summer?

      (Quote)

  15. It’s all been said a million times now. Nothing can be done as long as this pack of tossers runs the club. The club is well and truly destroyed now. It would take 100M spent by a brilliant Director of Football to make us competitive.

      (Quote)

  16. TDS @235: if someone is shyte you get rid of them. Carver has no clue, why even keep him for another minute never mind the next game? He has now proven to everyone except you and TAE that he is a waste of time. His managerial skills are only marginally worse than what he says at a press conference.

      (Quote)

  17. No Ashley at the game? Whatever could be wrong Mike? Not feeling well? You don’t enjoy the excitement of watching your beloved club any longer? This is so sad for you I’m sure. Possibly you should just lock yourself in your bedroom and count the cash again.

      (Quote)

  18. Mike is very encouraged. Give Carver a new 5 year contract and 2M pounds to spend in the summer and everything will be fine. No really.

      (Quote)

  19. Eric

    And what is the alternative? Beardsley? Who will tell him how to sort things out with the first team? Whoever manages needs to know how to actually do things! Putting in team sheets, where do go, who to call, protocols etc.

    Don’t be ridiculous. Someone needs to do this job and there is only one man suitable right now. Sad to say, that man is Carver.

      (Quote)

  20. TDS: what? My pet hamster could do a better job of managing than Carver. At least he doesn’t speak English and I don’t have to listen to his press conferences (Oh, I don’t have a hamster, but hopefully you get my point?)

      (Quote)

  21. Yes, we’re definitely in safe hands with Carver. The best man to back into the Prem next season we’ve ever had. Let’s check that form chart shall we? LLLLLLLLDL. Exceptional. What sayest thou Ashley. Bonus for Carver if he keeps us up with 1 point from 33 (and Hull losing to ManU of course)?

      (Quote)

  22. Agree, Hitman. It will be excruciating for Jabba. Me? I’ll get over it. In fact I won’t even notice a difference apart from th fact I won’t be at the games. That’s nothing to do with being in a different division it’s because of Jabba. Until the club changes its ways and starts acting like a football club – it’s dead to me!

  23. TDS@230…..”Carver is a useless manager but quitting now would disrupt things even more. I have respect for a man doing his best (even though his best is woeful) for a club that he loves because the alternative is even worse.”

    Has to be the blog post of the season if you ask me… πŸ˜† πŸ˜† we really are running out of hope πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

      (Quote)

  24. Am I going mad or are 2 people (TDS & TAE) trying to defend Ugly John after his record of LLLLLLLLDL?

      (Quote)

  25. Yes it pays to be a glass half full man when supporting Newcastle under Ashley Munich mate. Optimism is all it will take. Oh, and a new contract for Carver of course. πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

      (Quote)

  26. I think the supporters should stay away next week. Just completely boycott the game. Show Jabba that we have the power and we are prepared to risk PL non existence to prove the point.

    Kick the fat ******* while he’s down!

      (Quote)

  27. Defending him in terms of giving him credit for doing his best in terms of difficult circumstances. Not one of you can come up with a better alternative, not one of you! You’re just bleating about how **** he is and arguing against people who aren’t even disagreeing with that point.

    Yet again, turning on your own who love the club rather than putting your energy into targeting those who don’t have the club’s best interests at heart.

    were did i say it was a conspiracy i said that was my opion looking at it and you talking over there like i dont all ready know what fatboy and carver is

      (Quote)

  29. Munich – How could it possibly get any worse? I mean what could possibly happen with a new coach worse than losing? A new coach can’t effect Hull’s game but it can effect ours.

  30. TDS and TAE: the 2 of you just talk ****e. I mean, look at what you say @ 255 and 256. IT MAKES NO SENSE.

  31. ERIC SYKES
    you talk **** bud just look at the last blog to figure that i saw your pityfull efforts to try to make me look stupid with some of ya comments only proceed to make ya self look silly bud,just who did barton assualt off the field when he was playing with us you called it TAE copyright i call it TAE fact that he did not assualt any1 of the field when he played for us,now that is a put down bud

      (Quote)

  32. TAE @261: What? I don’t need to try to make you look stupid. You do a very good job of that yourself.

      (Quote)

  33. Eh? Joey Barton beat the crap out of someone while a Newcastle player didn’t he? Who is arguing that he didn’t?

      (Quote)

  34. so who did he assult when he played for us Eric ? πŸ˜†
    waiting with baited breath here 😯

  35. do you need to borrow a towel eric wipe of them wet patchs ya still got behind ya lugs 😳

      (Quote)

  36. TOONDARNSARF
    he assulted no1 outside macdonalds while he was on our books that took place before he joined us bud

      (Quote)

  37. “Barton, 25, was captured on CCTV in Liverpool on 27 December 2007 punching one man 20 times before an attack which left a teenage boy with broken teeth.” according to the BBC site.

    He joined us in June 2007.

      (Quote)

  38. We hired Joey when there was a legal case pending for his assaults. TAE said:

    β€œhe also did not assualt any1 off the pitch while he was with us so thats a reformed person in my opion. I know I am repeating myself but there is a context what he said.”

    My point about Barton was that he assaulted many people. He is a thug, on and off the pitch. Do you want me to post the Youtube link again???? Jesus. That he didn’t maim someone when he was with us is beside the point. Just go back and read what I said.

      (Quote)

  39. I don’t want Joey Barton at our club. A selfish, divisive, arrogant and thuggish man. If he wasn’t a millionaire footballer, he’d be in jail most likely.

      (Quote)

  40. Ice yeah I was wrong I didn’t expect them to fight the whole game. I thought the would have fell apart, but no, though in their advantage they were playing us and we have been the whipping boys all season.
    I have said before our club needs a root and branch change, we are total ****e.

      (Quote)

  41. has he assulted any1 since his prison sentence if the answer is no then hes reformed aint he Eric

      (Quote)

  42. Would you have a rapist date your daughter if he’s been released from prison TAE? Didn’t think so…

    Bad logic there mate…

      (Quote)

  43. theres a huge differnce beaten an assult and a rapist bud and ya dint want to go there

      (Quote)

  44. Point is, he’s not reformed just because he’s released from prison.

    And Joey Barton assaulted someone in Dec 2007 outside MacDonalds, while he was a NUFC player.

      (Quote)

  45. DAVE imo we would not get into the top ten in the CCC in fact would be lucky to stay in lge,but jabba would have made plenty by then,they will get a big crowd for the last game,how gullable can people be

      (Quote)

  46. TDS please tell me your not trying to compare a rapist to someone that has assaulted someone for abusing and trolling them and their partner ❓

      (Quote)

  47. 1s a hothead the others a predator they not even on the same planet between the offences bud

      (Quote)

  48. Big Dave

    Are you stupid? I’m disagreeing with the point that just because someone has been released from prison, that doesn’t make them reformed.

    He beat the crap out of some kid outside MacDonalds. Only a nasty piece of work does that. Stabbed a cigar into some kid’s eye at Man City too. If he wasn’t a talented footballer, no employer would touch him. Normal folk would be cast aside with much fewer chances than he had. And he’s a bloody millionaire.

      (Quote)

  49. would i let me daughter date a hot head maybe but i would be having a word in his ear,would i let me daughter date a rapist no way on the planet id kill the dude before that happened

      (Quote)

  50. So the point is, just because a rapist is released from prison, you wouldn’t trust that he was reformed. That’s the point I was totally disagreeing with.

      (Quote)

  51. Bloody Pardew confounds me? Just when I think I have him and his team sussed he pulls out a shocking result.

      (Quote)

  52. <<<<<<<<<<<<< i know plenty of peeps been to jail for assult most of whom have learnt from there mistake and not beat any1 up again thats a reformed person,but the rapist is a beast no 1 on the planet should be giving a 2nd chance to not ganna happen,a hothead can change a beast cant

      (Quote)

  53. Pardew was always a decent Premier League manager. Not amazing and not at the level of SBR, but never as bad as some fans made out.

      (Quote)

  54. Anyone can change but you only get so many chances. Agree with you, I wouldn’t give a rapist a second chance anywhere near anyone I care for, but Barton has already had MANY chances. He’s a ridiculously lucky man to have had so many and not only have a job and his freedom but also have millions in the bank.

    He tries to be like a man of the people but he’s not at all. A multi millionaire criminal…even the politicians and bankers can’t match that…

      (Quote)

  55. Not comparing them. Just saying that being released from prison doesn’t mean reformed.

      (Quote)

  56. Southampton deserve the European cup next season. Hopefully they’ll have it off Liverpool.

      (Quote)

  57. TDS it was a naive analogy. I understand what you mean though. I know plenty of people that reoffend after a stretch, but some do reform.

      (Quote)

  58. TAE @275 said about Joey B: “has he assulted any1 since his prison sentence if the answer is no then hes reformed aint he Eric”

    Is he?

      (Quote)

  59. Shamrock

    Don’t think naive really. Maybe a little extreme, but I stand by the point.

    I saw the video of what Joey Barton did and it’s disgusting. I’d love him to have been sacked there and then and never play professional football again.

      (Quote)

  60. Big Dave

    But you know what I meant…so why start arguing a totally different point?

      (Quote)

  61. No need to call Dave stupit its not called for,its the one thing he’s not,if you know half of much as Dave your lucky

      (Quote)

  62. Eric

    And that was my whole point…a person isn’t reformed just because he’s served his sentence. Otherwise prison would be perfect and nobody would ever reoffend!

      (Quote)

  63. TDS if you stand by your point then you are less intelligent than I gave you credit for – because humans do have capacity for change depending on life experiences, personal circumstances and peers.
    It is also a fact that many who go to prison for assault do not reoffend.
