Alan Pardew Into High Technology With Newcastle Training

Steven Taylor has opened the lid on the technology Alan Pardew uses to get the players fit and keep them in tip top condition.

What high tech stuff – you’ve got to be kidding me!

The technology aloof Pardew to see who may not be going full out in training and things like that, but as far as Steven Taylor is concerned, he seems to just love it.

This is what Steven said about the new technology today:

“The manager is great, the sessions have been brilliant and he’s meticulous,” “He likes his computer stuff, his projectors. We’ve got the heart rate monitors now, players do the body tests every day and he always looks at how much running a player is doing.”

“I remember one session we did I didn’t think we had done enough, but he said ‘Right, that’s enough’ and there was a guy on the sideline with an iPhone showing us how far we’d run. It’s modern technology – if it gives you an advantage you use it.”

“There’s no place to hide, though. You know about it if you’re not doing enough. I’m running on the spot afterwards to make sure my statistics are up there!”
“Everything is spot on. We do a lot of preparation work – everything is right.”

“We start planning on Tuesday, early on in the week we look at what our opponents have to offer. It is drilled into us now what our opponents strengths and weaknesses are,” “I’m sure for all the work we put in preparing for games, opposition teams will be worried about us as well.”

One of the many things we liked about Chris Hughton, when he was managing the club, is that he seemed to have a game plan for every single Newcastle opponent, and never gave any team other than total and complete respect.

And it seems that Alan Pardew is much the same way, and also has good man-management skills as Chris obviously had.

And Pardew has to take a lot of credit when he came into the club at a difficult time after Chris had been fired,  by not upsetting the apple cart.

That’s unlike Gerard Houllier has done at Aston Villa, since he joined them in early September, and one consequences of that is that Aston Villa, who are Newcastle’s opponents this afternoon,  are now in danger of relegation.

So credit has to be given to Alan for coming in and continuing the great momentum, that Chris Hughton had going at Newcastle.

It would be great if Newcastle can get their second win on the trot this afternoon at Villa Park – just great!

    maybe there is a technology that will make ameobi’s 10 yrs inconsistency become consistent?

    Perhaps Ameobi could be fitted with an electric-shock motivating device.

    Pardew can activate from his iPhone on the touchline?

    geoff777, I was once camping in Holland and there was a bloke there in a wheelchair who had his dog on an electronic lead. If the dog didn’t do what he said he’d press a button and the dog got a shock through it’s collar 🙁 . You comment about Shola reminded me of him.

    Perhaps Pards should pop the following data into his computer and see what it tells him:

    Hughton’s record this season: played 15 – points 20;

    Pardew’s record: played 17 – points 19.

    Well said . Ed I think you are very deluded about Pardew’s stats. Before Wolves, only 1 win in 10. CH was a stand up geezer. Pardwho is a slimeball. Good man management skills – tell that to Krul, Routledge etc.

    Fitness is great and to be admired but if we could feed a blueprint in to the computer for passing the ball and keeping it on the deck, playing people in the right positions and making good substitutions, even better.

    Actually Murvar – Hughton got 19 points from 16 games and Pardew has gotten 20 points from 15 games so far.

    Quite a weakened team today. Slightly worried about the outcome, although a loss today would not affect us to much with most of the results going for us yesterday. No Nolan and Tiote may be to much of a loss. I would be happy with a draw.

    Admittedly thats not much of an improvement from Hughton but its still an improvement and you have to remember thats without the use of Carroll as apart from his first 3 games, Pardew hasnt had Carroll to use.

    Whoops, meant Shola, not Best!

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Ranger or Airey getting a run out though. Or Kuqi for that matter.

    not sure how many games Hughton had so many 1st teamers out, I admired hughton for what hed did with the tools he had.
    I admire Pardew for what he is achieving with the tools he has .
    I dont care who the manager is.which team he puts out I just care about NUFC.
    We need 3 pts today to get some daylight between us and Villa et al.
    I just hope the Villa lot dont play well and we play to our strengths.
    a win today takes us nearly to mathematical safety, a draw too would be good, especially with Manure next up.
    IMHO though, Pards has done better than Hughton so far, I just wish we had more than our 4 strikers available, and I would like to see Ranger airey and Kuqi given a go once we are safe.

    Watching football online.

    I have found these two sites the best to watch Newcastle games online:

    The best way to watch is with Sopcast or Veetle. Here are the links to download.

    The advantage with Sopcast is you can (as I found out today) record. Here is a site that explains how:

    Hey guys 😀 And yay for spreading the love of sopcast (: When I found it for the first time it was just like ‘OMG WHY DID YOU NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE o:’
    In short Sopcast > all.

    And how you guys doing? Been a while since I last logged in, it get slightly boring seeing everybody make FM transfers for this club. Lukaku for £7mill, Ireland for £5mill, I mean, what are these people taking? The fantasy transfers won’t happen, we have a real possibility of getting players like Gervinho, but they’re not cheap. I think this summer we’ll offload about 5 players and bring in 4.

    Oh and GG, you haz msn?

    You should >.> We could haz epical laughs.

    Hoping for a win today, but… it seems like I’m the only one worried about Darren Bent. Cause… he is a great player, and he’s on form this season, and is the kind of player that can easily put two or more past us.
