Menu Of Entertaining Football To Be Served Up For Fans


Alan Pardew has often said he wants to produce entertaining and attacking football for the Newcastle fans.

Alan Pardew – entertaining football for Newcastle fans – good!

And certainly the players he has brought into the club so far this summer are just that.

Three Frenchman and a Senegal striker are what we have so far, with at least two more top players to arrive before September rolls around.

Pardew is looking forward and will not be sidelined by talk about who have left the club – Kevin Nolan – and those who may still leave – Jose Enrique and Joey Barton.

Alan has to look ahead and of course he’s brought in some good players so far:

“It can be easy to look at who isn’t at the club, but it is always exciting to see new players and what they can produce.”

“The players we have will be looking to produce entertaining football, that’s for certain. There’s always the chance for new heroes.”

The game arranged with Fiorentina a week before the season opens at home to – who else – Arsenal, will give the Geordie fans a good chance to see the new players Newcastle have brought in this summer.

Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux and Demba Ba are the three top players Newcastle have so far brought in, but Alan thinks by August 6th there will be even more new faces at Newcastle.

The manager continued:

By that time there could well be new faces to go with the new players we already have.”“We’ll have to see.”

“This will be a chance for our fans not only to see a game at St James’ Park against top-quality opponents, it will be the first chance to see some new faces.”

There seems to be renewed focus on Jose Enrique by both Liverpool and Arsenal,  and a move may be made by one of those clubs this week.

Another left-back in both club’s sights is Everton’s Leighton Baines, who was a Newcastle target before he moved to Everton back in 2007, and the former Wigan player has played 160 times with 10 goals for the Goodison club.

Jose has played 129 times with one goal for Newcastle in that same period, since arriving from Villareal in the summer of 2007.

    Aslong as we don’t defend like Blackpool a top 10 is achievable (with current squad)

    Cheap burgers and french fries on the menu.

    35M + 52,000 paying customers deserve a quality No9.

    Get some money spent you cheapskates.

    @ Andy. Assuming they all stay fit? Still a lack of depth at full back and striker for my liking. Assuming 2 or 3 new faces arrive, I think top 8 is a realistic target.

    Betting was suspended on zog not too long ago. If enough people put many on it the odds will slash. Is there any new info on zog?

    Twitter is rubbish especially that cwarr07. Aston Villa are still favorites and will land Nzogbia in a few days time.

    Listen everyone, I know a lot of us are worried about Pardews latest comments regarding the 35mil being almost spent, I don’t claim to know anything about it but do we not think that this could be a ploy by the club to make it look like we have spent the money so that clubs who own the players we are interested in don’t try to fleece us. Just a thought!

    I agree with you as long as nobody else leaves (except the deadwood, perch, smith, xisco etc.) and the 2-3 new signings have experience of the PL. This would supplement well the potentially good imports we have brought in thus far.

    @ post 12. Aye, well, when I said as long as nobody else leaves, I meant nobody else that matters! Perch, Smith (Great guy, occasional footballer) and Xisco were not included in the statement.

    Why do people keep posting comments from Cwarr07. Joey Barton showed him up just last week. He’s only good for laughing at now.

    I agree G however i’d still be happy with top 10. Top 8 is maybe possible if we hang on to Jose and get N.Taylor in for back up. Tavernier will probably be the backup rb this year as he’s been good when out on loan – either him or saylor (if fit)
    Another striker is a must but i’m pretty sure will get one in. Would love zog but he’s not imperative as we already have HBA Marveaux jonas and Barton who can play on the wing if needs be

    Andy, I haven’t seen enough of Taverner to call that one, for what it’s worth though, I would love to see a decent lad come out from the reserves. Seems to happen quite rarely at this club. I think JE will leave, though, much as it pains me, his silence on the matter speaks volumes.

    Hi lads , Havent left a comment on this blog in years as i am 21 not 18 as my username suggests,but follow everyday. Just read on skysports fulham are going for john arne rise. It is inevitable that jose is leaveing and i think he would be a good replacement even for a year or two. he is 30 which ano is against are policy but he has bags of experience playing for liverpool roma and loads of international experience,he also scores goals and assits. I think taylor is a poor replacement for jose ,saying all that id be happy if m’bengue ended up at the toon!

    Celtic may go for Harper over Forster, sounds logical for our club to sell considering the age problem we have, They may sell someone who is 36 and keep Both Krul and Forster.
    Not saying its the right move if we sell Harps but he is a Celtic fan and would jump at the chance i think.

    gorskino i got told that harper to celtic thing weeks ago but no one wud have it, like u say it makes more sense to keep forster n krul n sell harper who has 1/2years left at the most

    n does anyone apartfrom them on twitter actually think were after nzogbia, i think boudebouz or barnetta seem more likely
