One area of the team that has improved significantly this season is the Newcastle defense.
Alan Pardew – we have good defense – for whatever reason
And it seems that the players have improved since we have no new players ion the side then have been around for the last couple of seasons.
The makeshift left back Ryan Taylor has improved significantly and is on his way to making the left back position his own, although Davide Santon is awaiting in the wings for his chance.
And on the other side Danny Simpson continues to improve and we don’t think we’ve seen the best of Danny boy yet.
Steven Taylor has come back into the aside after more than 18 months of injury woes, and is not plating his best football at the club.
New captain Coloccini also seems to be in tremendous form and is now proving his doubters wrong by showing he is one of the best central defenders in the league.
And Tim Krul has made a great start since becoming the undisputed number one on Tyneside, and he looks to become a tremendous future goalkeeper for the club.
Alan Pardew recently talked about the Newcastle defending:
“There have been a lot of goals in the Premier League,”
“There are some fantastic players and sometimes, as much as you can defend and have all your disciplines in place, someone can produce a bit of quality to unlock it.
“Fortunately for us, for whatever reason, that hasn’t happened too often, and long may that continue.”
Newcastle have the best defensive record in all of the football league, and have conceded just eight goals in their 11 match unbeaten start this season in the Premier League.
Let’s hope we can maintain that record when we finish the next three games at Manchester United and Manchester City, followed by a home game against Chelsea.
