Pardew Demands Committed And Passionate Display – Good!


When Newcastle put in a so so performance last week when many of them didn’t even look they had turned up for the game, we feel sorry for the loyal dedicated traveling Newcastle fans.

Alan Pardew – we hope he’s doing this after Birmingham game

We are in awe of those supporters who travel to each game and represent the Newcastle passion on the road, and it’s something my late father used to do in the 1950s – he never missed a game in the first half of that decade when Newcastle won three FA Cup Finals in five years – 1951, 1952 and 1955.

So we think the Newcastle players even owe the Geordie fans a gutsy all out performance against Birmingham on Saturday, and if they can do that we should find some way of scoring and possibly winning that game.

And that would be only the 5th win in the last 19 games and only the 3rd win in the last 17 games – and my arm just started to hurt. 😀

Alan Pardew seems deft at being able to read the feelings of Newcastle fans, and they were not too happy with the display at Anfield last week, and this is what Alan had to say to the local Newcastle Press Corps today:

“We lost to Liverpool who are an up-and-coming team – and a team in form.” “The major criticism of us in the fall-out from that game was that we didn’t look bothered.”

“I don’t think that was the case, but we certainly were not on the same level as we were against Manchester United.” “We now have to answer the questions that have been put to us.”

“The aim is to put in a committed display for the fans and those fans who traveled in great numbers to Liverpool.”   “We haven’t done that too many times this season, so to get another double would be a good target for us.

“It’s more important to finish in the top 10.” “We’ve got two home games and a very difficult away game at Chelsea.” “But we see this as a chance to improve our home record against Birmingham and West Brom.”

Yes we know Alan didn’t say passionate display – we put that one in in case some of the players are reading the headline. 😀

Newcastle’s big problem is scoring goals of course and in six of the last 12 games they failed to find the back of the net.

We hope our two strikers Shola Ameobi and Peter Lovenkrands, will take the game on Saturday very seriously and play a determined and fully committed game, and try to put that ball in the back of the net, and after all,  Birmingham’s defense is very porous.

A win on Saturday will go a long way to lifting the spirits of the folks on Tyneside, and then the lads can go all out in the last game of the season two weeks on Sunday, against WBA,  and could end up with 47 points on the season with those two home wins.

And that wouldn’t be too bad at all – a good end to a successful season!

Howay The Lads!!

    Surely he’ll have just been going from what Thompson said.

    There’s no way Dalglish would be telling the press about transfer dealing. That’s not his way.

    Hmm we’ll see. I dont think he’ll stay, I would just be shocked if a deal had already done with the greedy bastard in charge. Unless they’ve offered a lot of cash.

    I’d be surprised if we got N’gog, as Liverpool only have 4 strikers in their squad at the moment (N’gog, Andy, Kuyt & Suarez)

    But we don’t know they’ve offered 15million.. lol. Or do we? He only has one year left, so that’s a huge sum of money considering how little Pienaar went for – and he’s class.

    Did they give a price on Revista La liga?

    And davybtoon, just because you got told something lol. If we listened to all the sources, Carroll would be at Spurs, Liverpool & Chelsea, and Enrique would be in about 5 different countries, and we’d currently be managed by Martin Jol under Indian owners.

    For a left back options it’s got to be Gibs or bains or clichy from arsenal I think only one that would be outa our reach is bains but I think he would come to us if we show were pushing forward in this transfer window and about 10 million quid would get him and about 4-5 for Gibs and 7 for clichy

    the sooner u all axcept he is gone to liverpool the easier it will be to take it once its offically announced, n we wont have to put up with hours of moaning on here
    hence the reason weve bid for cheick mbengue weve made no secret of the fact were looking for left backs

    Baines is an interesting one. He’s clearly f’ing amazing, I’d probably say better than Cole.

    But United & Chelsea both have LB’s they dont need to replace. He wouldnt move to Liverpool. He’s not Arsenals “technically perfect, scrawny & gutless” type of player.

    But I dont think we’d get him to be honest. Everton are better than us at the moment, and I can see Spurs & a lot of big foreign teams in for him if he’s up for grabs

    I’d be happy if we loaned Gibbs for a season. He’s on the brink of their first team, so we wouldn’t really get have a chance of signing him, especially with doubts over Clichy signing a new deal.

    But we dont appear to be in the market for loanees.
