Alan Pardew has made a good start to his management career at Newcastle.
Andy Carroll – can achieve every ambition with Newcastle United
That’s not necessarily by winning his first 5 games or anything like that – although that is still possible – but by talking to all his players individually as soon as he came on board.
There’s nothing like good communication to get people on your side – and it seems Alan is really good at that, and that is a key element in being a good manager.
Mike Ashley and friends – please take note.
Alan’s been particularly pleased at the commitment that both local lads Andy Carroll and Steven Taylor have expressed for the club, even though Steven has still to put pen to paper.
But Steven sees the results of our poll we’re sure that will tip the balance, and he’ll sign his new deal. 😀
In fact we know he’s already seen them.
Alan Pardew has talked today about the big local striker, Andrew Carroll, who promises to be another in the long list of great center forwards at the Newcastle club – Hughie Gallagher, Jackie Milburn, Malcolm MacDonald and Alan Shearer – to name but four.
And this is what the new Newcastle manager had to say about Andy Carroll today:
“Andy seems to be a very level-headed guy and from what I have seen of him, he has adhered himself to the place here.”
“This is his town and he is playing for a big city club. He also understands that whatever he wants to achieve in the game and the ambitions he has, he could achieve here.”
“He has already got an England cap and if we progress as a team, then maybe those international caps will increase. He’s a young player who potentially could be a really great player.”
Good words again form Alan Pardew, and of course he’s absolutely right and we’re sure he wants to be the manager who leads Newcastle back to greatness – and maybe even a trophy – and that would be just fine with us.
As we all found out last season it makes a huge difference to the team if players are on board who want to be here.
Take the game on Monday between Man City and Everton – where the Toffees basically out-fought the mega-rich City players – and showed great fight and commitment – and ended up with all 3 points.
It’s hard to think, with all the huge egos at City, they will ever have a great team spirit- unless somebody like Jose Mourinho magically becomes their manager of course.
And Newcastle also have what Everton have in bucketfuls – a tremendous team spirit and commitment to their club.
Both sides should do well in the coming seasons – if only because of that.
