Pardew Building An Exciting Side For The Fans


It didn’t take Alan Pardew too long to work out what Newcastle fans want from their team.

Alan Pardew – building exciting side at Newcastle

Newcastle fans just love skillful and creative players, and since Alan has come to the club he has signed Ben Arfa, Yohan Cabaye and Sylvain Marveaux, who are all very skilful French midfielders.

Those players will allow the way the side has played over the last two seasons to change, and maybe fairly dramatically too.

Pardew told the local Newcastle press corps today:

“I am hoping to deliver a side which looks a little bit different and our style will change a little bit too.”

“I am hoping we will have an exciting season – and that is how the team will be set up, to be exciting.”

“I cannot wait to start and be around the city and the club again.” “I will be working with the players to try to make it successful for the fans.”

“The fans – as always – are the important part for us.”

There’s little doubt that Alan Pardew is going all out to re-shape the Newcastle side, into something the Newcatsle fans will just love to support.

Whether Alan can be successful in doing that we don’t know, but at least Alan seems to be on the right track, and that’s good to see.

What do you think?

    The signings so far have been good but what else lays in store for us? Who will be sold? Who will replace them?

    IF the window shut today (lol) I’d say we’re “about” on parr with last season’s squad.

    13.5mil from PSG. I highly doubt Ashley will bid more than 10mil for any single player.

    well..its exciting alright..but we need more bodies in.. the #9 jersey still up for grabs..a striker (even if its gonna cost us 20 odd million) and cover for jose at lb..that should do!! give the likes of fergie,vuckic,tavernier,abeid more time on the pitch..who knows what could be hidden in this crop!!

    Would like to see Naylor signed as backup for Jose who I actually starting to belive will stay. A striker and a couple of exciting youngsters and then were ready to go!

    Surely our squad as a whole is stronger.
    I think we will certainly have more flair and pace in the side.
    The one thing we are lacking is goals.

    If we are after at least two new players, I hope it is going to be soon so the team has the maximum time to get to know each others game style, If the scouting and everything has been on the go since we got the money in Jan, Then surely we must be ready to make our moves now!

    Transfer friday has continued though. We’ve signed someone 3 out of the last 4 fridays (Even though we knew about Abeid)

    Are you telling me that we do not have a better squad than last season?

    We have brought in 4 new players and 3 players have left, 2 of those that have left had no real impact on the first team.

    4th choice in the greatest team in the world at the moment (possibly ever) though and he will get some oppertunities to get game time plus he is still very young

    A lot of people seem to think we lack depth in the squad. In reality we lack a decent medical staff the amount of injuries we seem to have season after season is phenominal. Consider this 2 players for every position not including youth players would represent a squad with good depth. Right now we have:
    GK- Harper/Krul/Forster no problems there
    RB-Simpson/Raylor- Not good enough for any of the teams above us both solid back up not reliable week in week out
    LB-Enrique/Ferguson-Best left back in the league and a more than able deputy with real potential.Hope he stays if not has to be replaced with a quality international left back. Naylor is not needed he will only stunt Fergusons development because lets face it ferguson is not going to see much time on the left wing this season. Naylor is being lucked at as Enriques replacement whether they denie it or not its obvious its how the club operates buy young cheap etc.
    CB-Collocini/Saylor/Williamson/Kadar-Where not to bad at centre back i think given a full pre season together Saylor/Collocini will be a very solid partnership
    both know where the net is aswell although sometimes not there own. I do think we need one quality CB if we could get samba he’d be brilliant will Collo. Doubt that will happen though
    DM- Tiote/Gosling- I think where solid here assuming Goslings Fitness is not going to be an issue longterm. I do think one more young hungry DM is required with Tiotes love of all thing yellow and who better to learn from than Mr T.
    CM-Barton/Cabaye/Guthrie-No immediate need to splash on this position plenty of youngsters vying for recognition in the middle of park, let it develop for at least season see if someone can step up and challenge.
    RM-LuaLua/Mehdi- We really don’t have a natural Established RM we need to strengten here or at least give the lad a chance.Believe me Mehdi is a winger not a DM as is being Touted he can tackle though.
    LM-Guttierrez/Marveaux- Nothing wrong with that Marveaux’s a flyer believe me he’ll do serious damage this year and you can’t double up on him and leave the Space for Benni to Exploit that link up will be critical this season if it fires as it should we’ll be capable of beating any team in league again all down to keeping both fit and happy.
    AM-Ben Arfa/Vuckic- Where not flush will players here and Vuckic is completey unproven i probably shouldn’t include him but i think he’ll either make it or break it this season. Would love to see Ryad Boudebouz in the Black & White he has Silky Skills born to play at St.James park.
    CF-Ba/Best- Both of these guys are capable of playing at the top level but consistency is and issue for both there confindence players.We need to get new NO.9
    capable of 20+ goals a season. Erdinc/Sturrigde/Gervinho are not the answer over inflated values for players who have ability but not the prolific scoring touch Sturridge scored 8 in 12 jugde him over 38 lot of players have got 8 in 12 and then dried up Zaki is a prime example at Wigan at while back would you take him now? Everyone wants these guys because because there rumoured to be on the radar. Look at the foreign Leagues there’s plenty of Talented Strikers out there. I’d go all out for Benzema if Ben Arfa loves newcastle united he’ll bury the hatchet and then they bust the net together all season long. Hulk is quality but i honestly believe Benzema is more realistic as he not exactly in favour at Madrid. With all the Frenhies we’d a decent shout nothing to lose in trying.

    Any players i’ve left out (not including youth players)are not worth keeping they did the job in the championship but we need to progress and there just not good enough. If we invested in the area i’ve mention i truly believe we’d have a great chance of europe.
    This is my first post so enjoy hope it makes sense.

    Our squad is far better, than the one we finished the season with.

    If we could get N. Taylor for £1m and swindle a loan deal for Sturridge, whereby there’s a non-comittal fixed price agreed (say £12m), I think that would be a brilliant strategy.

    Every chance of getting a Europa league spot. If we did and Sturridge proved his worth and was a big contributor, then you sign him permanently next summer.

    There’d still be the stroppy bunch though, whining even if we achieved that, ‘because our net spend is only £1m… blah blah blah’.

    Canny wait! 😀

    Is Bojan a free agent? No so we wont be getting him. Not to mention his play is better suited to spain or italy.
