Pardew – We Expect To Win Against Everton Tomorrow


With just  a little bit of luck and the rub of the green tomorrow afternoon, Newcastle could well get their 5th home win of the season against Everton at St. James’ Park.

Alan Pardew – will have the side well prepared for tomorrow’s game

Only four wins at home in the league is not a very good return for the Newcastle side in their 14 home games this term, and indeed the lads have won 6 of their 14 games on the road this season, and the points earned on the road and at home are exactly the same at 18 points each.

So a win tomorrow is what we’ll all be looking for, and Alan Pardew is well aware that a win could take his side into a higher position than their current 9th place.

This is what Alan said today:

“It’s not lost on us,” “I think it’s a situation where, with the goal difference we’ve got, we could jump a couple of places and that’s what you want to do at any football club.”

“So we’re striving to get a victory on Saturday and then see where it leaves us at five o’clock.”

“We can jump up the league a couple of places; we’re a long way from getting into Europe but we have a team that’s functioning well, the results have been good since the turn of the year and we want to keep it going.”

“I’m expecting a typical game against David Moyes’ Everton, who are a good side with good quality players. For us, it’s a Premier League game at home. We expect to win, but it’s a difficult game against top-class opposition.”

Everton are never an easy team to play against, and David Moyes’ players will be playing their hearts out for the side, after the disappointing 1-0 home defeat last Tuesday night to Reading in the FA Cup.

But David did say that for all the 100% effort and passion against Reading, the quality in the side was missing.

Since they will have two of their best players, Australian International Tim Cahill and Belgium International Marouane Fellaini, missing tomorrow afternoon through injury, this could be a chance for Newcastle could take all 3 points and also get the double this season over the Toffees, if the lads can play somewhere near their best form.

We hope so in any case.

There are  doubts as  to  who will play out on the right wing, with both Joey Barton and Stephen Ireland doubtful with slight injuries, but 23 year-old Danny Guthrie will no doubt be delighted to get a start in the side, as he’s now fully recovered from his hamstring strain of last week, and we trust Danny can get the job done for Newcastle tomorrow.

Howay The Lads!!

    Hmm not sure about this one. We are compact and solid these days, but we need someone to stand out and play a stormer if we want the win – Shola, Best, Ireland – on their day could make the difference in front of goal.

    My team v Everton

    ……………………………Harps……………………………….

    Simmo………Willo…………..Collo…………….Enrique

    Ranger………Tiote…………..Nolan………….Jonas

    …………………Best…………….Ameobi………………..

    Ive gone for Ranger on the right cos i think although Guthrie is good were gonna need a bit of pace to get in behind a tight back four, this is only if Barton or Ireland are injured.

    Guys i have just come up with a quick and easy song to sing for Danny Simpson at our matches as i think he has been outstanding for us this season and he deserves his name to be sung by us.

    The lyric come from the Music Artist Sting and the song An Englishman in New York.

    Whoa, Danny Simpson, Danny, Danny Simpson, He’s an Englishman in a Toon shirt.

    Let me know what you think guys

    John Hoy – What’s gay about it and exactly what is your problem? any reason you feel that you should come on here and start name calling. do you feel big and hard now that you have typed a few words and tried insulting someone for no apparent reason. I truly think you need to grow up you unintelligent excuse for a human being.

    jj @ 5. Ranger on the wing, that’s barking mate. So barking that I am right with. I would certainly be willing to give it a try, can’t see AP going for it though. Decent line up tho.

    I would be amazed if they went with Ranger on the right, even though I thought he looked fairly decent when he was played out wide earlier in the season in the carling cup.
    I think as long as Shola is fit Pardew will play JJ’s line up but maybe Guthrie instead. That will be good enough to beat the Toffees!

    It is absolutely shocking to see any club to go into administration except for the unwashed scums.
    I feel for all the Plymoth Argyle fans hopefully a buyer will be found, where football is heading the Leeds and Pompey of our generation its absolutely shocking
    .
    Hearing news such as this puts things into perspective Mike Ashley is really running this club well in terms of finances although his footballing know how and decision making leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

    I would gladly have a hated Owner whose balancing the books than my beloved Newcastle going down the drain.

    Everton play very narrow and use the full backs to overlap on the wings, ala Phil Nevil, Enrique and Jonas to cover back there main threat due to injury will be from Beckford and The little frog down the centre, hence 3 centre backs.

    Jonas is excelent down the right and Jose would be cracking with some freedome on the left.

    With this attack Everton would be more worried about defending.

    Playing a single striker up front is not an act of fighting for a win. I would expect Pardew to play 4-4-2 or I will be really disappointed with him, like last week.

    And don’t start Ameobi even if he’s fit. He’s one of those guys who can’t live without competition. Let him play as sub and start Lovenkrands up front. Don’t play Lovenkrands on the wing like last week as you’re reducing his threat to the opponent.

    Pardew has been a major concern for this match. If he can’t win another 3 points for us at home, I see no reason why he should stay for next season with this performance.

    And finally, Mike Ashley would not spend all 35 millions anyway like Liverpool spending more( Suarez + Carroll) than what they earn for Torres. Our owner will only spend maybe 70% of the money and start finding other excuses not to spend the rest. He will also earn more money by selling other good players. This is his plan and policy.

    Like I said many times before, we must get rid of this type of owner ASAP before he causes another damage to our beloved club.

    Since Pardew in charged, we only win 4 games out of 13. We lost 4 games and drew 5 games. We are yet to play against ManUtd, Liverpool and Chelsea.

    I wish Pardew can start talking less and work around with his tactics and formation.
