Alan Pardew has come out with a rallying call to his players for tomorrow’s tough encounter at Manchester City.
Alan Pardew – urges players to make Newcastle histroy
Newcastle have gone 11 games without defeat, which equals the best Newcastle have started a league season – ever – so a draw or a win tomorrow will make Newcastle history.
That would be tremendous for Alan Pardew himself, because nobody will be ever be able to take that away from him, and he will achieved it before he’s even had a full year at the club.
That will be some achievement for Alan.
Alan Pardew is a confident guy, and that’s how he comes over today, and it apparently was an emotional and revved up manager who had this to say to the press today:
“Avoid defeat and we make history. That is something we can focus on.” “It’s a fantastic target for us and if you can’t put your body on the line for that you shouldn’t be playing for Newcastle United.
“We have to approach it with a tactical plan to win the game.” “Otherwise you will get beaten, it won’t just fizzle into a draw. We’ve looked at every game they have played this year and at segments of games.
“We feel that defensively we need to be very tight as a unit.” “Of course you are envious. Every manager would want 24 internationals in your squad.”
“I think we looked at their squad and they had nobody who stayed behind in the international break. So, it goes to show the quality they have.”
“Unfortunately for them they can only pick 11 and use three subs. We will go there with a confident team and we can put on a good show – and come out with some sort of good result.”
This will be a time when Alan will need to inspire his troops to go out and try to win this game against the only other unbeaten side in the Premier League, with a squad worth north of £800M.
And make no mistake about it at all – if Newcastle can win this game, they will make news around the world, as they will have beaten the best team money can buy.
But money cannot but team spirit, and that’s the edge Newcastle have in tomorrow’s game.
Howay The Lads!!
