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.
