Pardew Wants To Give Newcastle Fans Hope And Belief


It could be that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is warming to the football crazy fans on Tyneside.

Alan Pardew – wants to give fans hope and belief

Newcastle had good support from the Newcastle fans once again yesterday in London, and they were able to celebrate a draw when local lad Steven Taylor, who had another outstanding game at center-back, scored the equalizer right at the death.

Certainly Alan Pardew and the coaching staff looked pleased enough, as Alan was seen punching the air again, as he did when Cheick Tiote scored that fantastic equalizer for Newcatsle against Arsenal in the 4-4 draw at St. James Park in February.

A game that will be long remembered for the Magpies magnificent fight-back against another London side.

Newcastle had already beaten Chelsea 4-3 in the Carling Cup back in September, and also Arsenal and West Ham in the Premier League, so the lads have done well on their visits to London this season.

Alan Pardew talked after the game:

“It was good to see the young players coming in and that’s what you want at a big club.” “We want to attract one or two big players and bring through one or two of our own.”

“That’s the balance you need if you want to be successful.” “The next stage for us is to bring the players in to take us on. For the fans, who were in great voice again, you can’t take them for granted.”

“You’ve got to give them hope and belief, and they will have been buoyed by what they have seen with the young players.” “But they will also be hoping to see one or two big players come in.”

“I don’t think a performance like that does any harm for the owner either.” It will give him belief that we are doing the right things and putting the right things in place to take the club forward.”

“If I was the owner I’d be a little bit more secure in investing.”

The news coming out of the club is that Alan Pardew is in constant negotiations with Managing Director Derek LLambias,  about the level of funds he will be given this summer.

Newcastle fans will be taking particular note, that the promise to spend the £35M cash received from the Andy Carroll sale, will indeed be fully invested into the squad.

Come September, we’ll make our own calculations on just how much has been spent, and of course under-soil heating is currently being installed at the Benton training grounds, and that’s a good long term investment for the club.

But the most important thing in the summer is to get several very good players into the club, and some hopefully will be free agents.

Comments welcome.

    This underground heating is constantly mentioned as if it is a massive expense.

    How much can it cost?

    Is it likely to be much more than Andy Carroll’s & Routledge’s wages saved since January?

    If not, then it’s not really a factor, just a smokescreen to cover lack of spending on the squad.

    I think its going to cost around £250k. I’m sure it was mentioned on here a few weeks ago.

    It really shouldnt be mentioned in the same breath as the transfer funds because it shouldnt really make a dent.

    Go0d to see Lua Lua, Ferguson & Young Ameobi getting games and not looking out of place. Steve Taylor was immense again yesterday as were Barton, Enrique & Jonas. Hopefully the injured players will be back by August & along with 3-4 good buys we might just have a decent season

    I would guessestimate around £250-500k for the undersoil heating. Its not as easy as just sticking some pipes umderground, often alot of the sub soil is of the wrong texture and has to be replaced aswell as issues of some areas being in the sun not requiring as much heating else will be prone to cracking etc. Eitherway I doubt its anymore than ACs or Routledges wagea were since Jan. We have been told of other imprplovements at Benton though aswell..? Though who knows what these are…

    Looks like we are lumbered with two Ameobis now then! Sammy looks as immobile clumsy and average as his big brother. Loving the chants mind.

    There is a very good prospect in Partizan Belgrade,one of the best young players in the league

    Marko Scepovic

    A very skillfull player who at the age of 19 allready scored 16 goals in 53 app in the Serbian League
    He scored 5 goals in 6 games for Serbia U19

    I believe 1mill could do the trick as he’s allready been observed by some German clubs.

    You kidding Ben? Sammy had a hell of alot of pace yesterday, also looks like he likes to get involved unlike his older brother.

    Him, lua lua for his direct running, fergy for his creativity. Those three really impressed me yesterday.

    “1 or 2 big signings”
    So the max we will buy is 2 then in the Window, lets hope they are not the Free Agents who are average players.

    @Stuart

    Well it does because if you think some of the targets like Konchesky/Graham/ 250k is like less than half one of there fee’s thats big for a cheapskate owner like the one we have.

    @Ben & Roshan

    Pretty harsh comments about Sammy Ameobi & Lualua.

    Sammy Ameobi looked to have a lot of pace and wasn’t afraid to run with the ball.

    Lualua was playing his first game since coming back from a broken leg. With only one week of “contact” training.

    I thought both did well and look good prospects.

    I agree that Lua Lua and Sami Amoebi looked bright for the 10 mins they were on but for me the star of the show yesterday had to be young Fergi. He was lively, constantly looking for the ball and gave Ivanovic a torrid time at Right back and he is a world class defender, i think if we tie him down to a long contract we could have the Irish Gareth Bale in a couple of years, thoughts?

    @ben you must have been watching a different game, in the short time he was on Sammy showed a he has pace to burn, a great touch and is good when running with the ball. The player he most reminded me of was yaya toure. Similar close control in the dribble.

    Ferguson caused problems all day and showed rameires a clean pair of heels on one occasion which is no mean feat. He managed to find a lot of space in behind chelsea and was brought down cynically a few times

    Lua lua hardly got into it but swung over a decent cross. More to come from all of them I think. Maybe we could give them a bit longer next week.

    Agreed him & Carlton Cole, If Pardwho chooses him over Demba Ba i wud shoot myself too :p

    @jamesnufc86

    Only think he could be saying was he looked a bit scared first min or so and gave the ball away, but had a good impression like Sammy, Fergusson had a good game too was solid helping Jose at LB

    Get a grip, Ben. Sammy was brill as were the other young uns. Fergie was superb and put in a five-star performance.

    I don’t say that by way of encouragement – I say it cos I saw them give their all. Time, Ben, to make an appointment at Spec Savers.

    jamesnufc86 I agree with you, I thought the young ones did a pretty decent job.. I think some people on here expect far to much!!!

    Glad Pardew gave them a chance especially against a team like Chelsea..

    Drogba isn’t coming to Newcastle. he would cost way to much..

    “I don’t think I’ll entice him to the north-east. I think it’s a bit cold for Didier at this stage of his career. Foreign players come to these shores and some set the example for others to follow.” ….

    IF that doesnt point to gervinho i dont know what does

    Really warmed to Pards throughout the season after initially being disappointed at his arrival.

    He’s very technological lead with his training methods and I’d a forward thinking man, with a great team behind him in Beardsley,Stone, Carver and Carr.

    Have just seen the highlights of the Wigan game, we simply must resign Zog!

    And just heard Golds reason for relegation: he’s blaming, ref’s, bad luck and injuries……….hmm I’m sure he forgot a couple of things like poor players and a poor manager! Seriously wouldn’t swap Ashley for those two clowns at Upton Pk.
