We’re completely astonished at what Alan Pardew seems to have achieved since he arrived on Tyneside last December.
Alan Pardew – his face says at all at the end of the game
Of course he wasn’t welcomed as the very popular Chris Hughton was sacked, for no real reason.
But Chris has landed on his feet at Birmingham City and their 0-0 draw at home to Brighton on Saturday ended a six game winning streak – so Chris is weaving his magic at Birmingham now – and we are delighted about that.
Pardew deflected all the praise for last night’s win to his players, who carried out the game plan magnificently, but it’s time that Alan takes some credit for the fantastic job he seems to have already done at Newcastle.
Newcastle have now gone 13 games in the English top division and that’s the best they’ve done in over 61 years.
Not surprisingly Alan Pardew was simply delighted at the end of the game, and he had this to say to the local Newcastle press:
“If we can get a point against Everton, or even win the game, and go against Man City unbeaten, it’ll give us the confidence we need to play a team like that.”
“Obviously, they’re unbeaten too.” “It’ll be a nice challenge for us to try and get over Everton and do that.”“Stoke is a really tough place to win a game, and it showed.” “You’ve got to have a lot of attributes to your game, and we had them.”
“The character of the players was unbelievable.” “I think there’s a nice immediate goal in front of us, something we can focus on.”
“Demba’s a striker that I knew.” “I knew from my staff at West Ham that are still there that he’s a good player.”
“He trains every day, and he moves in the box.” “He wants to score – he comes alive.”
Demba Ba has been magnificent for Newcastle in the last five league games where he’s managed to score an amazing 8 goals, and he doesn’t seem to miss too many chances.
Sky Sports reported last night he has a 40% average in putting chances home – that’s phenomenal.
We love the fact that Newcastle are flying high in the league and all we want to see is that the players continue to commit themselves in every single game, like they did last night, and just keep it up.
Howay The Lads!!
