It’s not only the Newcastle first team that have made a good start to the season.
Alan Pardew – great job at Newcastle – so far so good
Newcastle have 15 points from their first 7 Premier League games and are sitting at 4th top of the table at the moment.
But the Reserves side, managed by Peter Beardsley and Willie Donachie, are also unbeaten and they top their Premier Reserve League with 10 points from their first 4 games, and are 1one point above Manchester United.
And the U18 Youth side are also top of the Premier Academy League Group D after beating local rivals Sunderland 4-0 last weekend, and they have 16 points from their 7 games and are above Barnsley, because they have the same goal difference but have scored one more goal.
And if you take into consideration the last three games of last season, Newcastle’s first team have an unbeaten run of 12 games, and long may that continue.
And thanks to the Newcastle official site here are the games played by all three sides so far this season:
P W D L F A Pts 18 12 5 1 41 16 41
That’s a real sign that things are really functioning well at the Newcastle club, and it’s hardly surprising that Alan Pardew is delighted with the way things have gone so far this season.
This is what Alan told the official web-site:
“It’s fantastic that the club is ticking along so well at not only first-team level, but also at Reserve and Youth level.
“It shows the strength-in-depth of the squad and reflects well on the players we have coming through in the future, and that can only be a good thing.”
Things are on an upward slope at Newcastle, as the club tries to recapture some of it’s earlier successes, and we have to hope that will continue throughout the season.
And who knows, if Newcastle can keep up their good form, the Magpies could well find themselves in the Europa League next season.
And that would be simply fantastic.
