Pardew – Geordie Passion Surpassed Even My Expectations


News this morning that the Newcastle allocation for Saturday’s game at Blackburn has now been sold out – well that’s hardly a surprise after the Newcastle heroics against Arsenal.

This is Newcastle United Passion

So it looks like there will be 5,000 screaming mad Geordies at the Darwen End, for Saturday’s very important game with Blackburn Rovers.

We need to settle a score there, because Blackburn beat us 2-1 at St. James’ on Wednesday, 10th November, when we gave away two soft goals.

The sell-out for Saturday is hardly surprising since the club have been selling out their away allocations all season long.

And Alan Pardew has been astonished at the Geordie pride and passion shown since he arrived on Tyneside.

And we are truly hoping he will be like Chris Hughton before him, and be inspired to work his socks off to make Newcastle United into a successful side again. 😀

This is what Magpies manager Alan Pardew said today:

“We saw what a difference our passionate fans can make when their support helped us to come back against Arsenal and it’s going to give us a big boost when we come out of the tunnel at Blackburn and see so many fans backing us.”

“It’s another example of the passion of this football club’s supporters. Since I’ve been here, they have not only lived up to everything I’d been led to believe about them, but surpassed it. They’re something else and we’ll look to reward that following with a performance to match.”

Newcastle are simply the best supported club in football, and that’s the way it’s always been.

That’s the truth, and the support is so passionate,  the fans can even create a miracle from their side – as was witnessed last Saturday.

Howay The Lads!!

    The atmosphere last saturday was unreal, even at 4-1 down the noise was unbelievable. I honestly think I’m so lucky to be born a Newcastle supporter, “Proud to be a Geordie, we’ll support you ever more”

    I’ve been a fan for many many years and I’ve experienced many sad moments but also very good ones with this club.

    Unfortunatly, I’m an oversea fan so I don’t attend that many games but the atmosphere at SJP use to be unbelievable and that’s why I travel to see as many games I can afford for a season. Love going there !

    I think everyone is waiting to see who the player is we’re signing today. People who post regularly on these articles seem to trust someone called ‘craigcoozy’. Does he work at the ground or somthing? He said there’s an agent there.

    @Markaccus

    He works at a hotel in Jesmond I think, and most of the time the players and agents check into that hotel a couple of days before they sign. He was right about Perch I know that, can’t think of anyone else off the top of my head 🙂

    he was right about Ireland aswell like Markaccus.

    He’s been right quite a few times over the past few windows.

    I think its a case of he see’s them or their agents checking into the hotel. Doesnt always mean the players will sign though.

    Did he (craigcoozy) ever say what he does? Is he a manager or doorman or a cleaner or what? What’s he look like? Italian paparazzi, shady mafia, James Bond, slimy geezer in the background? The suspense…

    Haha, i think he just works at the main desk or something. Although its probably more fun to imagine him as a shady gangster skulking around the hotel lol.

    Just been looking at a few of AP’s interviews on BBC such as the one directly after the Fulham game, the one before the Arsenal game and the one after the Arsenal game and there seems to be a recurring mantra going through the team and he talks alot about being strong and having resolve. I like what AP is doing and he seems to be getting the strong mentality into the team as shown by the character of the players after going 4-0 down to a side like Arsenal. If we remain strong to the end of the season I have no doubt that we will be sitting pretty come the end of the season. Keep up the good work Pards!

    Still a big believer that he will not come to us, as these kind of players like to go straight to the big clubs when get the chance and not continue fighting and trying to push a team forward.

    Although, I hope that I am wrong because we need a great striker.

    thanks matt, and another question.

    What is a better way to get to Newcastle. Lets say, from Holland (Amsterdam) or from London?

    obviously there is the plain, but are there any trains or maybe some way to get to the city by a ship? a ferry?

    I am trying to plan a first time to Newcastle, but I see that a straight ticket there cost around 700$(!!!!), on the other hand, a ticket to Amsterdam cost 300$.

    Well. I won’t probably do this often as it is expensive for me (the traveling that is) So it doesn’t really matter for me if it is 20,30 or 60, I want to enjoy a game of my favorite team (And when I say enjoy, I just mean-watch them play, not expecting any 5-0 🙂 )

    What is the name of the ferry? Are you talking about the DFDS seaways ferry?

    Yeah, it is about 110, the cheap ones.

    newcastle29 // Feb 9, 2011 at 3:48 PM

    Well, if I will go it will be:
    Tel Aviv – Amsterdam – Newcastle
    or
    Tel Aviv – London – Newcastle

    I think those are my two best options.
    Although there are some more cheap flights to France, Spain and Germany so… But I don’t want to save some money just to spend 12 hours on a train or something. It is just a dream right now.

    Oleg G, I always have this problem. If I was a Londoner I would save a fortune in flights. It’s one of the reasons I was hoping England would get the WM. I was hoping people would see the North East, fall in love and make the North East a holiday destination. Thereby pushing flight costs down.

    If you’re offering freebies, I’ll have Malaga please. If you could make it an e-ticket and give me the details, I’ll pick it up at the airport!

    That’s the hols sorted out already!
