We don’t know how much Alan Pardew knew about Newcastle and their colorful history, before he signed a five and a half year deal to manage the club.
Alan Pardew – wants Newcastle to be exciting side
But we’re sure he knows an awful lot about newcatsle now, with their history, and the fact they have been renowned in the past for playing exciting and attacking football.
That’s just one reason Newcastle United are a popular club around the world, fans still remember the great days when Kevin Keegan managed the Entertainers, and the great Bobby Robson had Newcastle in the European Championships League.
Whether Alan Pardew is good enough to take Newcastle to the heights as those two managers undoubtedly did, we don’t know – but we really hope so.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle today:
“We have a great team already to build on.” “We want to play exciting football and want that to continue.”“We want to wire players up in the wide areas like we did against Man U and get players through the middle and in on goal – that sort of movement is what you should have at St James’.”
“We want to break teams down that way rather than committing defenders and leaving yourself exposed.” “That is the next step we have here and something we are working on daily.”
“After what we have shown recently you would like to think there are a two wins left in us at least this season in the final four or five games.” “We really owe it to ourselves to finish the job strongly and owe it to the rest of the Premier League too.”
“We are preparing for games right, we are warming up and down for games right, and if we play as well as we did against Man U we will win more than we lose.” What we want to give to the fans is a display like Man United or better.”
“The minimum amount of effort we should be putting in is what we did against Man United.” “We look forward to the big games, not fear them.”
Those are good words from Alan, really good words, and we even think he knows just exactly what Newcastle fans want from their team.
Of course it would take about 30 minutes with a bunch of local fans in the Strawberry pub, for Alan to be very clear what kind of football the fans want to see from their club.
The Strawberry pub – across the street from the Newcastle ground
But as we mentioned earlier, we don’t know if he can deliver the goods, but if Pardew doesn’t succeed at Newcastle, it will not be for the want of trying.
The Londoner seems to be giving the Newcastle job just about everything he has – which is really good to see.
