Team Spirit Can See Newcastle Through Tonight

The news on Newcastle in September has been all about the Newcastle Board’s incompetence in not being able to bring in a new striker in the summer transfer window.

Alan Pardew with Martin Jol before the Fulham game

And manager Alan Pardew was certainly very unhappy about that failure,  and took a full week before he talked to the press again.

But he sent out a signal with that silence, that it was the Board who are responsible for doing the deals for players, and they failed him and they failed the Newcastle fans too.   But what’s new?

It’s definitely now time to move ahead, and when you look at the Newcastle squad, we think it’s just a little stronger than last season, and a top ten finish in the Premier League this season is definitely a possibility.

Alan Pardew still believes Newcastle can still do well this season:

“We need to challenge for the top ten in this division and at the moment I think that is still possible. It is still there.”

“I’ve got to be honest, I would be doing myself a disservice if I wasn’t targeting the top ten and a good run in one of the cup competitions. I think we have a squad that is strong enough for that.”

“We have less experience in the team but we have more exuberance, so we will have to use that and bring it to the fore.”

It’s important for the squad to remain upbeat and to keep that very good team spirit going through thick and thin.

We would hope the lads do a lot better than their last four games in the first half tonight, since they’ve been second best in the first 45 minutes in all  four games they’ve played so far this season.

But whatever happens tonight, they should keep pressing, and as we found out over the last two seasons, anything is possible with first class team spirit.

Howay The Lads!!

    sick of talking about the owners now, same sh@t different day… We have a great team and would have an even better 1 if we had got the lads “over the line”.

    We will win today and move up the table nothing else matters but moving closer to safety will that work against us in terms of January transfers or against us??

    What January transfers Darlo? haha.

    Whether we’re doing well or badly we won’t sign no-one, Dick Lick has already said he doesnt like operating in the Jan market, or summer, or throughout the season haha!

    QPR have lost every game so far this season, why are people saying it will be a tough game?

    Tarrabt wont show up as usual, SWP is useless, Barton will spend all match shouting at his own players/our players/the ref.

    Not forseeing a problem here like!

    Ha beat me to it lol

    They have strengthened significantly in the window.
    They’ll have got a buzz from that and Joey will fire them up.

    They aren’t used to playing together so that’s a plus.
    An early goal would be good.

    Looking forward to it, bloody internationals getting in the way of the proper football!

    Not too confident. Far from convinced Marveaux, or Obertan, or Gosling. I’d take 1-1 now . Barton will show us what a fine footballer he is. Tiote and Cabaye v Barton will be interesting.
