We would have expected that there were some reports that Newcastle players were down-hearted a bit, and a little of that was in the Newcastle Journal today.
John and Alan – need to rally troops – but morale seems good
But Alan Pardew has called those reports just ridiculous and untrue, and of course Andy Carroll’s £35M to Liverpool has been relayed aorund the world – a just turned 22 year-old Geordie worth £35M. It was even reported in the USA Today in America.
Even though the Journal had said Andy Carroll was back in training Monday, that turned out to be false, and it seems that Andy’s thigh injury will keep him out another 8 weeks, and he’s already been out 5 weeks with it.
So maybe the good news (?) is that we would have been in a similar situation even if Andy Carroll had not been sold – and that’s another way to look at it.
Pardew is keen to move on, and we don’t blame as he told the Evening Chronicle today:
“There’s still a good feeling here.” “I looked at some paper reports and they said we were looking dejected on the pitch because of Andy’s departure.”
“That’s ridiculous. He’s out injured and wouldn’t be playing even if he was here.”
“He hadn’t played in the four games before that and there has been a good feeling on the pitch.”
The lads will get phenomenal support tomorrow, and it could be a packed-full St. James’ Park, and it’s all set up for some Newcastle heroes tomorrow.
Wonder if we’ll get some, and we wonder who they could be?
A win will be fantastic – and that’s an understatement!
Howay The Lads!!
