Pardew Issues Rallying Cry To Troops

Newcastle had a huge win last Saturday against Wolves but a win this Sunday at Villa Park will be just as big.

Alan Pardew – wants Newcastle to be resolute at Villa Park

One reason for that is that it will take Newcastle to safety from relegation on 42 points, and will also give Newcastle the double over Aston Villa this season, after Newcastle whacked them 6-0 in our first home game of the season.

In that game, Newcastle had about 8 chances and put 6 of them away, with Andy Carroll getting his first (and only) hat-trick for his home-town club.

Newcastle have 18 points (5 wins, 2 draws 7 defeats) in their 15 away games this season, and 21 points (5 wins 6 draws and 5 defeats) in their 16 home games at St. James’ Park.

So a win on Sunday will give Newcastle equal points both at home and away from home this season, and that shows excellent form on the road.

Alan Pardew had this to say on the Newcastle United web-site today:

“Apart from the Stoke game we have done well away from home,” “We have been very resolute, strong and controlled, and that’s how I want my teams to be away from home.”

“At home we can open up a bit more, but at any away ground in the Premier League, you can’t expect to open up and invite trouble. We will be controlled, disciplined and wait for our opportunities.”

“Villa have got good players, great players in areas – certainly in the front four with the likes of Stewart Downing, Ashley Young and Darren Bent,”

“Those guys all play for England, but they have good back-up and some very good players. Now the fight is on I expect them to respond to that, but we are a tough cookie at the moment and we won’t be easy to turn over.”

“They have got a threat in the forward areas, but have certainly struggled with conceding goals, and we have to capitalize on that.”

“They will be nervous, under a lot pressure, and we have to use that for ourselves. We’ve made life a bit more comfortable with our result against Wolves. We now need to make sure we are assured, and that we are fully focused on the game.”

If Newcastle can get the first goal on Sunday, that will make Aston Villa even more nervous, and Newcastle generally do well when they score the first goal.

The motivation for Sunday has to be that’s where the lad’s lost their final game in the relegation season a couple of years ago, and they can take some revenge for that dismal defeat.

Aston Villa, although on paper they have some top players, have hardly been playing well, and if Newcastle can put in one of their better displays at Villa Park, they could even take all 3 points on Sunday.

If they do that,  there will be some celebrating going on in the Newcastle City Center on Sunday evening – that’s for sure.

And as Alan Pardew said this morning Newcastle will then start to make some moves in the transfer market.

In addition to that,  the Newcastle hierarchy can also start the task of keeping Kevin Nolan, Joey Barton and Jose Enrique on Tyneside, for say the next five seasons.

That will give the club some stability.

    Huge game against Villa, just as important as Wolves in my opinion. We’ve got to beat the teams below us if we expect to stay up. Without Tiote and Nolan we’ll be weaker, but the pressure is on Villa and they’re in bad form. Hopefully 3 pts.

    I would love to beat them and put them on a downward spiral leading to relegation for the way they handled themselves when we went down. said it best: Not forgiven. Not forgotten.

    Do the maths on the home Games!

    I’m toying with the idea of getting a ticket for the away end of Villa’s last game this season if their season depends on it…

    How sweet would it be to stand there with a big poster saying who’s your next messiah then as they go down?

    But hang on, its only complete w*nkers that do that isn’t it? No , correction, only pathetic, sad brummie w*nkers do that.

    The championship would be too good for them imo.

    Part of the debt was paid when we thrashed them 6-0 at St.James’, but we still gotta finish them now. Would be great to send them down or at least get them started that way.

    Villa 0-6 Newcastle. Would be a dream to get 12-0 from them in the season of our return from the championship. We would also raid them for their youngsters, ie. Delfounueso (or something like that). Wouldnt mind seeing Bent sent down to the championship. Villa, Wolves and Wigan down the CCC. Nzogbia and Bent fighting it off in the lower tier! 😀

    Pardew is a total knob for letting Barton say what he likes. Barton is talking embarrassing rubbish and I doubt he has got one brain cell between his ears. Both are tolerated because they wear the shirt otherwise we would be slaughtering them. I call it as I see it whether they are wearing our shirt or somebody elses. Not looking forward to Pardew being in charge for a whole season and hoping Barton can keep his stupid gob shut. Talk about a big headed prat. Anybody with real class lest the others do the talking. Barton is ramping himself into looking a real w…..r

    With Wilo and Harper playing with Guthrie our rest of our defence will be under alot of pressure from the 3 foward players at Villa. If Wilo makes the mistakes he did at Wolves and Harper play poorly like he has done for a while for example at Stoke we may have problems, alot of pressure will be at Colo, with Bent,Downing,Young there attack compaired to ours on on a whole new level, but defencivly they are poor in the air, Dunne,Collins have strugged with tall,quick players and im hoping we play Ranger cause Loven has been terrible but he WAY to small and weak him against Dunne or Collins will be a massive miss match, but Pardew will stick the same team and it will be a massive struggle. Lets hope we can pull a massive team spirit and get a draw/win 🙂

    Thump – Spot on mate.

    I was there that day and was roundly abused as I walked with my Mom who is 60 years old and they directed all sorts at us. It certainly isn’t forgotten or forgiven.

    I have completely lost my voice and am ill as you like, but I have my ticket and I will be there. I will celebrate beyond celebrate if we beat them

    It isn’t often I agree with you Jimiley, but you’re spot on. He is making a total prat out of himself and the team he represents. By all means speak your mind, but really now, Dabo? He had his chance to speak and he kept his gob shut.

    @Johnny: I heard an old fella in a wheelchair was assaulted leaving the ground. Absolute disgrace, that said Villa fans are the most plastic out of the lot.

    Imagine if we did that against… can’t remember the team off the top of my head last season. We gained promotion and we relegated them. It’s a disgrace. I wouldn’t wish relegation

    I wouldn’t wish relegation on any team, but the Villa fans need bringing back down to earth – probably as we needed to be.

    Anyone got any update on Ireland? Why hasn’t there been any mention of him getting a run out in the reserves or anything lately?

    Any other player coming back from injury usually gets a mention and some game practice in before they get thrown back into the Premier League and he’s supposedly fit again, just ineligible so why no mention?

    I’m starting 2 doubt whether he’ll ever play for NUFC and when we beat Villa this Sunday Houllier will get sacked anyway. When the new manager comes in he might well get another shot at playing for Villa…It’s not like he’s insulted Birmingham or anything while he’s been away is it? Oh wait..

    Any else got a fiver on Ireland playing for QPR next season? How do you spell m-e-r-c-e-n-a-r-y again?

    Pathetic eh? A million quid a week and he can’t be arsed 2 play for the best fans in the world right here.

    I truly believe that we will go out there and demolish Villa. Our team spirit is better than anybody’s in the world. To keep a club winning games and moving forward its what you need. Very crucial part of the game of football. We did beat Villa 6-0 earlier this season with Carroll’s first ever hatrick. They have a better attacking team than before but their defense is still SH!T. Their most dangerous player is Ashley Young who was piss poor earlier this season against us, and Marc Albrighton who is going to be out strength by Jose Enrique. Coloccini-Willo partnership will stop Darren Bent. I’m sure that our attackers will unlock their defense, and goals will be banging in from here and there. I’m going for a 4-0 win!





    JOEY BARTON 2 goals
    SHOLA AMEOBI 2 goals

    alan pardew’s days are numbered and i can reveal why……

    ..i have spent the most wonderful day at wynyard hall in the company of sir john hall and his wonderful wife lady mae .

    …sir john has confirmed to me that himself and antony gormly intend to convert the gateshead angel into a…wind turbine…that has the capacity of powering the metro centre and 93% of east gateshead .. their calculations for this are based on a lowly wind speed of approximatley 3 miles per hour (7mph is the constant average over the last 15 years) so they feel their business model is watertight.

    they also hope the…A1…motorway north/south stretch that has the angel in view can be turned into a toll per view..sir john tells me.

    planning permission for both has now been submitted to gateshead council and the intitial feed back is very encouraging and they hope they will get the … green light … for the go-ahead before the easter break.

    if successful with the application sir john believes they can generate (by mid july ) the value of money that should allow them to buy nufc…they have been quoted £176.25 million by mike ashley with a validity of 120 days from april 1st.

    sir john also confirmed that himself and antony intend making alan pardew redundant and appointing alan shoulder as the team manager for the next 3 years.

    also….if it all goes to plan lady mae hall plans on singing this millie jackson classic at the foot of the angel…..

    i for one hope it really really happens!

    sweet dreams.

    Yeah it was Plymouth that we beat away last season to officially make us Champions while it confirmed their relegation, and they showed real class by putting all that on for us when they must have really been suffering.

    Compare that to Villa, their fans are complete pr*cks. A Villa fan I know was posting stuff about it on Facebook too, proud of the fact that his team had sent us down, while other friends of mine, fans of Man Utd or Liverpool, were talking about how we’d be missed, that we were too big a team for the Championship.

    Dontn think Richard Dunne will be playing – he is still in the dog house as far as i know.

    Normally i think ranger should play instead of loverpants but in this oarticular game id like loverpants runs against a slow backline whicj they would probably push up…..Against wolves i rightly predicted jonas, loverpants and stroller to score and i had a vision last night that jonas again scored – this time it is the opener..sstraight after loverpants is being brought down by collins…last man stright red…
    two goals from the donkey 3-0 victory,… im off to the bookies
