Pardew – Newcastle Could Be 6th With A Win – Astonishing


Alan Pardew has come out today with the obvious statement – that a Newcastle win tomorrow could see the Magpies rise to 6th place in the Premier League.

Alan Pardew – the lads have done well in 2011

With Sunderland at Arsenal tomorrow, and Bolton at home to Aston Villa, a Newcastle win could put the side level with Liverpool on 38 points, and above them on goal difference.

Liverpool then host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, with former Newcastle player Andy Carroll supposed to make his debut in that game.

If Newcastle win tomorrow, both Bolton and Sunderland would need a win to stay above Newcastle, and that only seems possible with Bolton, but you never know.

Arsenal will be wanting to take Sunderland apart tomorrow, after their disaster last weekend in the Carling Cup final against Birmingham.

That sounds good to us. 😀

Pardew talked to the local Evening Chronicle today:

“We have a bigger carrot this week because if results go our way we could find ourselves in sixth place on Saturday night.”“That would be astonishing, so it is something to really focus on.” “I suppose because Bolton were away from home it was they who took a lot of credit out of the game, somewhat undeserved credit if I’m honest.”

“I thought we were the dominant force in that game when we had 11 players on the pitch. And when we went down to 10 we still gave as good as we got against a team that are meant to be having a great season, apparently, or so I read.”

“I feel that the most important thing for us is to improve our home form. The most important thing is to win in front of our home fans.” “It’s one defeat in nine games. We need to keep that going.”

Newcastle have certainly not been given enough credit this season so far, given we are in 9th position,  and have had some great results this season so far -but what’s new?

But this will be an incentive to go all out for a win tomorrow against an inconsistent Everton side this season,

The Toffees are also without two of their best players through injury – Tim Cahill and Marouane Fellaini – so there will not be a much better chance to do the double over Everton this season than by winning tomorrow afternoon.

Howay The Lads!!

    Could be 6th or already shoud be?

    Am I wrong in thinking we’ve won more games away from home this season than at home? Time to put that right imo.

    15th has been our worst position this yr.well apart from after the first matchday.we’ve never really been in relegation trouble.i fancy us for the 3 points tomorrow.especially wit cahill and fellani out.stoke will b tough.and id expect us to confirm our premier league status at home to wolves then.just as well as villa(a) man utd(h) blackpool(a) and liverpool (a) follow.i think top 6 is an unrealistic target to b honest.but top 10 is achievable.

    As usual the gutter press have blown the whole Stephen Ireland interview out of proportion.

    I think we can get to 6th if we get the rub of the green and the other results go our way. If we do this it will be after a few hiccups in the season so far we must admit. The point is we will have done it regardless of the slurs and moaning minnies of the press and media. That is what is so good about it. Trouble is we cannot get the reporters to eat their own manure. Howay the lads for 6th on saturday and then some battling for a place in second tier Europe.

    if you look at Liverpool, Sunderland and Bolton’s next game they are quite difficult compared to ours.
