Alan Pardew – We Will Play Exciting Attractive Football

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.

Comments welcome.

    Lads, I’m maybe being abit naive here. I don’t overly gamble but just placed a couple of bets with William Hill.

    Bookies (as far as I know) seem to know all inside info etc etc. Well I went to put some money on Nolan scoring and noticed Ben arfa is @ 10/1 to score first today or 7/2 anytime.

    Am I missing something here, why would they have him on the list if he’s not in the squad…if no-one believes link below:

    Ryan_NUFC88: Yes, you are being a little naive. If people do take up the HBA bet then it makes for a very safe bet indeed (for Hill’s I mean)

    Pardew is speaking exactly what the fans want to hear. That’s fine, but in the current squad I don’t particualarly see how we can play exciting football and be a winning side.
    I think with a good few signings in the summer this may well be the case but at the minute we all know we’re a good few players short.
    Enrique may or may not leave but regardless we need another left back anyway.
    We need another centre half to play with Colloccini i reckon, Williamson as good cover, I dont care if Taylor stays or is sold.
    We need to keep Barton and play him with Tiote in the middle.
    Guthrie does nothing for me, he plays well one game out of ten in this division and id sel him, we have Gosling who has more ‘potential’.
    Routledge is off, so we need a right winger/forward with pace.
    Same can possibly be said on the left, but that depends where Pardew plans to play Ben Arfa next season.
    Ireland was great at City. If we could guarentee that level of performance id snap him up but due to injuries we havent been able to see just how much he could bring to the team. It would be touch and go for me as to signing him.
    I would love to see us go for Niko Krajcar if Ireland was to go back to Villa. We could argue that Spurs only pad £1.5m for him, go in with an offer of £3m and it may be enough. He’s a class act and that creative player we need if we want to ‘entertain’ as Pardew says.
    Centre forwards are where we need the most work. Lovenkrands should move on, he’s been decent but won’t take us to the next level.
    Best has probably given himself another season with decent performances, but Shola will always be the same. He should be back up at the very most.
    We need two strikers/forwards I think. If we could get Elmander on a free for maybe a couple of years i wouldnt be too unhappy, and one of the lads from Lille either Sow or Gervinho, I know theyre always mentioned on this blog.
    Im currently watching the Cardiff vs QPR game. Bellamy and Taarabt are the stand out players.
    If Bellamy was a couple of years younger id have him back in heartbeat.
    Taarabt may be £10m and a touch expensive but he’s quality, I think he’ll be a great player in a few years time.

    3 million for Kranjcar? hahaha wow

    Spurs are looking to rebuild their strike force and Harry has already used a lot of dosh at spurs he may need to raise some money himself that means from player sales….Kranjcar will be priced at around 10 mill I would guess
