It was a good win on Saturday for Newcastle, and completely guarantees Premier League football for Newcastle next season.
Alan Pardew – improvements already being made
Newcastle can now relax in that their financial plan is safe, and the club will keep getting the huge TV money coming in that’s generated from the exciting and hugely popular Premier League games shown around the world.
Alan Pardew talked about safety today and some improvements already being made:
“Is important for the club that the fans have gone home with a win, they know we are safe with two games to go,”
“And the owner can rest assured we have Premier League money coming in next year, and we can all look to building for next year,”
“We are already making big developments at the training ground and there has not been investment in that area before, that gives a sign hopefully of what is to come.”
“Half the training ground has been taken off the top for under-soil heating to go in, and we are going to do the bottom half as well.
“The facilities are going to be upgraded and improved and these things are important, it sends out the right message to everybody.”
We were told yesterday by Alan Pardew that he’s got owner Mike Ashley fully involved in the transfer market already, and that Mike is talking directly with agents.
Presumably some of that could be negotiations for some free agents, and we are still hoping a couple of them can be signed and announced once the season finishes.
Swedish International Seb Larsson could be one of them, and there are others that Newcastle have already been linked with.
The announcement that Newcastle have signed a couple of free agents shortly after the season ends, would certainly set the right tone for the summer transfer market.
