Alan Pardew is a savvy, intelligent and experienced manager, and he is well aware that the Newcastle fans are so very important to the Newcatsle United club.
This is Newcastle United
And we’ve noticed that Alan, like Chris Hughton used to do before him, goes out of his way to thank the traveling fans for their tremendous support of the side.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – we are in awe of those Newcastle fans who follow the side around the country – because they demonstrate what Tyneside passion is all about.
And they were in full view yesterday, in a game that was televised live around the world, and would have only made Newcastle United more popular, after another gutsy display.
There were 1,500 Newcastle United fans who made the journey to London yesterday, and the Newcastle manager had this to say about them:
“I’m very, very happy. Our fans were brilliant because they knew we were up against it with injuries and there were a few youngsters out there.”
“They sung and really got behind the team.” “In the context of the game, a draw was a fantastic result for us in terms of the players we had left to put out.”
“Against a club packed full of international players, you have to say it was a fantastic effort from us.”
Alan Pardew, like hero Chris Hughton before him, seems to be rising to the job at hand, and he often seems to be inspired by the terrific support Newcastle receive all the time.
He must count his blessings every night that he’s now manager of Newcastle United. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
