Alan Pardew has come out today and said he thinks the reason the Liverpool Newcastle game was rescheduled for the top 4pm Sunday game is that they were hoping to embarrass Newcastle.
Andy Carroll – Liverpool center forward
Pardew says he thinks Sky Sports were hoping Newcastle would be in relegation trouble and that Andy Carroll could help embarrass the club.
We never though of it that way. other then it’s the first time toe local striker will play against his former club, but Pardew seems convinced it was all the embarrass Newcastle United.
Sounds to us too much like one of those conspiracy theories that people keep thinking up, which are always rather hard to believe.
Anyway, this is that Pardew told the local Newcastle press corps today:
“You could argue this game was scheduled for live broadcast so that it would be an embarrassment for us, with Andy Carroll playing for Liverpool and us not being safe.”
“We are safe, but having said that we are still as eager as ever to play the game.” “There is still a lot to play for in these last four games for us.”
“Maybe we did not deserve to win at Blackpool, but we still could have.” “We had one or two good chances in or around their box, but we did not take them.”
“That is something we are always looking to improve.”
What Alan is saying is kind of hard to believe, at least in our eyes, but hopefully he can use it to inspire his Newcastle players.
If the lads play with the spirit and guts they displayed against Manchester United last week, they could even get a draw, and that would a very good result for Newcastle on Sunday.
Howay The Lads!!
