The Newcastle side should always be playing attractive and open football, and that is one reason Newcastle dispensed with the services of one of their former managers, Sam Allardyce.
Pardew – going for win at Birmingham – what else?
There will be 3,000 fans that will make the trip to Birmingham on Saturday to support the lads in trying to get two Premier League wins in a row.
And Alan has come out today and told those traveling fans that the lads will be going all out for the win on Saturday afternoon.
Alan will know exactly what the Newcastle fans want to see, so it’s hardly surprising that the manager will try to play attacking football to win on Saturday – and hopefully in almost every game.
None of this lets’ defend well with 8 players, break up the other side’s rhythm, and hope for a 0-0 draw.
This is what Alan Pardew said today:
“I know that they will go down and try to make more noise than the majority of Birmingham fans.” “My message to them is whatever tactical changes we make for this away game, we will try to win.”
“I just hope they can see that I’m a serious professional manager and working hard, that’s all I can do at the moment.” “I’m working as hard as I can and hopefully the results will come as well.”
Pardew probably still cannot believe his luck at now being manager of one of the most passionately supported side in the world of football.
But it’s the biggest chance of his career, and the biggest job he will ever have in football – so we hope he makes the very best of it.
“I said when I arrived it is one of the biggest clubs in the country and a fantastic stage.” “The supporters here have a real passion. And there is so much excitement behind the whole thing.”
“People talk about exciting Newcastle teams of the past and it is generated from the fans to urge you on. It is very much part of the season for us.” “The lads are in good spirits and we are looking forward to Birmingham.” “It is never easy going to St Andrews.”
“They are a resilient side and they’re strong, it is always a competitive game on the physical side, so we need to make sure we’re strong enough. And then hopefully our quality comes through.”
It’s going to be an interesting game on Saturday and of course we want the win, that’s the number one goal, but we will also be looking to see if there are any obvious changes Alan will make in the way Newcastle play the game.
The game is again being televised live around the world – of course.
