We Don’t Want To Let Ourselves And Our Fans Down Again


Alan Pardew has come out today and said the rather obvious – that the Stoke result was not what we wanted.

Alan Pardew – putting  in a heavy training week this week

Sinceit was Stoke’s biggest win ever in the Premier League, and when else did they score 4 goals in a game, that’s a rather obvious statement.

But of course the main thing now is for the Newcastle players to bounce right back against Wolves, and let’s be honest, if anything could go wrong against Stoke, it certainly did.

Even after dominating the second half, as Stoke seemed content to hold on for a 3-0 win, but with the Magpies unable to score even a single goal, Stoke broke away in injury time to get their 4th goal.

To us it was very like the game at Bolton, and  Murphy’s law was in full action that day against Newcastle – if something could go wrong it did!

And when are Newcastle ever going to get any kind of luck this season – we seem cursed as far as luck goes, in the vast majority of our games.

It was a terrible day in the season for Newcastle fans last Saturday, and Alan reflected on that:

“It wasn’t the result we wanted. We tried to be positive, but it didn’t work for us,” “The fourth goal, and Cheick’s booking, summed up our day.”“We’ve eight games left, and we’re going to try and finish as strongly as we can.”

“We’ve decided to have a strong week on the training ground, which is probably a bit unusual in an international week.”  “We want to get some good work done.” “When you have a two-week break and come up against a team in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, it can be difficult.”

“It wasn’t about discipline or other things, it was purely about our focus. That’s why we decided to have a good week on the training ground.” “We’re focusing on what’s important to Newcastle United, what’s important to the fans, and what’s important to us. We don’t want to let ourselves down again.”

“I don’t think the scoreline reflected the game, but I won’t hide behind the stats. We were soundly beaten, and we don’t want that to happen again.”

The Wolves game is so important now to the Newcastle club, and everything else is gone,  and water under the Tyne Bridge.

And a win will see us stay nicely above the relegation fray, and put us a full 7 points ahead of Wolves,   and with just 7 games to play.

That would look very good a week on Saturday – if we can do it.

    Maybe Ed blinks in Carroll once and awhile, like that split second advertising that they put in films sometimes. 🙂

    Oh the article. Oh yeah. So basically Stoke beat us and we didnt really want them to, and we hope it wont happen again. Thanks Alan, for that mind numbingly obvious piece of managerial tactical overload you nob. Alan Pardew, specialist subject the painfully obvious, jesus.
