Pardew BBC Interview – Praises Newcastle Performance – Video


Here’s Alan Pardew,  cool and collected, talking about Newcastle’s 3-1 loss to Manchester City this afternoon, after the lads made  two terrible mistakes in the first 4 minutes of the game, to gift the opponents two goals.

But Alan seemed very pleased with the performance after that, and thinks with just a little bit of luck things could even have been very different.

Now it’s on the Spurs on Tuesday evening, but Newcastle must eradicate those defensive errors that have plagued the side all  season.

    start Ranger, put in Harper and practice getting on the end of knockdowns, could have easily been a result today.

    Happy Xmas to Man city. The points were given away today. We where the much better team but come away with nothing. Very frustrating but that’s football for ya!!

    The sad thing is whether it’s Hughton or Pardew, we have to be the most predictably one dimensional team there is. Absolutely everything is aeriel to Carroll’s head. It’s our one and only tactic. 50/50 hit and hope, play the percentages football. There are no people moving on to through balls or cutbacks or getting in behind defences at all. There’s no method at all. Jonas always gets a game no matter what when I’m sure Ferguson couldn’t do any worse and wouldn’t give possession away every time.

    Carroll would do well in a ” footballing ” team because they would mix it up and he wouldn’t be the only scorer in the team.

    Rotonda,i agree that we are just one route football.
    We attack well but it`s all going toward Andy.
    We don`t break through the middle.
    Where the heck was COLLOCINI`S marking for the 2nd????
    He stopped Tevez`s run but let him sneak behind ….he is gonna have to get a lot better to be PL standard

    Either you are “Nick Dryden” from nufcblog.org or you’re a plagiarist but bottom line is we played 4-5-1 which left AC on his own. Last home game we played 4-4-2 and AC played his part in a good team performance.

    Let’s not jump the gun just because our new manager has to learn all the things our previous manager had to 🙁

    That’s the thing though.

    Unless you play counter-attacking football, pretty much every team plays the long ball. It’s what you do with it that counts.

    Get it to the targets chest or have lots of people supporting and it works, but if you don’t then you’ll keep losing possession.

    Personally, I think we are pretty good at getting it to Carroll’s chest and then we play alright football.

    We do still need another option though.

    An Agbonglahor type. Maybe Ranger can do it, but he’d need coaching on the role and he’d have to round of his edges pretty quick.

    Dam it! You beat me to it! I am so glad! So glad he is back! Now Jonas has to show what he completely got or he is out simple as that! Jonas really needed competition at that left wing spot. Ben Arfa came in 3 games it think and already scored a absolutely cracker! Can’t wait to see him back in action!

    Of course Ben Arfa is going to sign up! He might or he might not get 25 games as that was part of the deal in order to sign him permanently. We really need him! But Marseille coach said earlier that they Marseille will not close the door on Ben Arfa to Newcastle, should he not fulfill his 25 games.
