In home games, the Newcastle fams can be a massive influence on the result.
Alan Pardew - wants fans to be positive
Alan Pardew has played at St. James’s Park and also managed sides up in the north-east to know that’s a fact.
So it’s not really surprising that he has come out today, and asked the Newcastle fans at the game to be really positive against an in-form Tottenham side who have won four games in a row.
This is what Alan said:
“I want the fans to take that momentum and positivity into the stadium because we’re going to need help.”
“As an opposing player who has played at St. James’ Park I can tell you the atmosphere there affects you. It is a difficult place to play. The crowd do play a part.”
“It will give us the chance to balance the books with Tottenham, who are in great form.”
“What I do want and I do know is that the fans have a trust in the team. I think they like the team, I think they see an honesty in it and it kind of excites them what it can do.”
With the results yesterday, Newcastle retain 4th position in the Premier League today, and anything but a loss will see them keep in that high position tonight.
Alan knows it will be a tough game, and he is trying to get help from anywhere he can, and of course it should be bumper crowd on Tyneside today, hopefully cheering on the lads to a victory against what is no doubt a top side.
Howay The Lads!!
