I Want To Become A Consistent Manager At Newcastle

One good thing about experience,  is that if you can learn from your past mistakes,  you can become better in what you do.

Alan Pardew – wants to become more consistent

And when Alan Pardew was appointed Newcastle manager, we knew he had had many ups and downs in his managerial career, which started at Reading 12 years ago.

If you don’t learn from your mistakes, then history has a way of repeating itself, until you do learn, and then you can stop the cycle and move forward.

Well,  in any case that’s something I learned well from my IBM career.

And it seems from what the Newcastle manager has said today to the local press, that Alan has learned from some of his past mistakes in football management, and says today that he’d like to become a more consistent manager at Newcastle.

In fact he’d like to be like David Moyes has been at Everton, since David left Preston for Everton back in 2002, after four years of managing Preston North End.

Alan likes the hype he and Newcastle are getting at the moment, but he’s determined not to allow himself or his players to get too big for their boots, so to speak.

“Of course it’s nice to hear. In managerial careers, you have your ups and downs and all managerial careers are different,”

“If you look at myself and David Moyes, we were in a very similar position when he was at Preston and I was at Reading.”

“He’s had a very consistent period as a manager, whereas I’ve had a lot more ups and downs.”

“There have been some real highs and some lows. So, for me, the most important thing in my managerial career is to get some consistency in what I do.”

“Obviously, I’ve gone back over my career and corrected some things, and I think they’ve worked well for me. Now I go forward.”

It’s simple to say but hard to do – but it works to take one game at a time.

And that’s what Newcastle United will be trying to do tomorrow, as they try to get some payback against Everton for the 2-1 defeat they suffered in the corresponding fixture last seaosn.

Howay The Lads!!

    * Demba Ba has scored 15 Premier League goals in 2011. Only Robin van Persie (28) and Wayne Rooney (19) have scored more.
    * The Magpies are unbeaten in 13 league games (including their final three matches last season). It is their best run of form in the top flight for over 61 years.
    * The only occasion that Newcastle went undefeated in their opening 11 Premier League games was in 1994-95. If they avoid defeat on Saturday they will equal that record.


    * Everton have not kept a clean sheet in nine league and cup matches. Their only shut-out this season came in a 1-0 win at Blackburn, who missed two penalties.
    * The Toffees have suffered defeat in five of their last six matches in all competitions.
    * They have lost five of six league games this season when they conceded the opening goal.

    This is going to be a lot harder than a lot of you are making out. Yes they have lost 5 of their last 6. But thats been to Man Utd, Chelsea twice, Man City and Liverpool! They have been picking up points against all the teams they are expected to, other than their shaky start to the season, so dont go doing a Wigan again and saying we will win this easy. Everton are a good side and a draw wouldnt be the worst result although obviously i would like all 3.

    Aye, Everton are a much better side than their position and have agreat manager and it will be tougher than we think. A draw would be okay if we were only just trying to improve on all last season’s results. But we want a a bit more than that now so it’s got to be all 3 pts tomorrow…it’s down to expectations as Niafron would have it

    Would love to see HBA get a start on the RM sat think Pardew has somewhat pigeon holed him saying he can only play one posistion behind ST he playd RM last season, Its a tough one becoz it will be all hands to the pump for 90mins sat and maybe HBA is a luxury, but if not sart defo to be on 60/70mins can change the game in a flash on the other hand maybe Pardew promised him a start v Everton thats why he didnt get on the pitch monday nite. Hate to say it bt I can see a 2-1 lost

    will be a tough test, no doubt about it. AP will get the lads set up well, we’ll have a packed house, we’ll be pretty bad for the first half, maybe even go a goal down, and then climb the hill in the second half to draw or win… seems to be the way we like to do things

    y’know… give the opposition a taste of victory… only to snatch it out of their snapping jaws at the death… if only we played the whole 90 mins showing all our potential, it’d almost be possible to believe such a statement! hahaha

    Matt Stoddz NUFC 4.

    Come on you dafty, explain to me how exactly you can drop Simpson and Best…I love to hear this.

    Watching this ofrum over the last few weeks I can only gather that some of the peopl ewho write on here are either 1. Have mental health issues (if so my sympathies) 2. 12 Years Old and only real knowledge of football is through playing Fifa or Pro Evo on the XBox.

    How people continue to pick their teams each week and drop Simpson, Obetan (ok this week hes injured) and now Best, you people want to lay off the glue.

    Spot on matey

    i would possibly bring back Tiote although Guthrie had a fantastic game and I agree i think Marveaux is the best choice to replace Obertan.

    Honestly think we could miss Obertan’s pace tomorrow, I think its over looked just how much pressure he relieves from our defence. His pace stops their full back pushing on which at Everton could be telling.

    Isn’t Marveaux supposed to be even faster than Obertan?
