Newcastle Will Try To Overcome Tough Odds – Alan Pardew


Newcastle will have all the odds against them at Old Trafford today.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle will try to overcome tough odds

And we’ve been saying most of the week that it could be that Newcastle suffer two defeats in a  row, but the two hardest places to go this season are to the two Manchester clubs, and as long as our lads give a good performance today we’ll be just fine about whatever the result is.

It will not be a tragedy if Newcastle again are narrowly defeated as last Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

But the next game at St. James’ Park against Chelsea next Saturday is already a complete sell-out so we’ll see more than 52,000 fans at the game, and Newcastle must have more than a decent chance of  getting all three points against a Chelsea side that has often looked all at sea this season under new manager Andre Villas-Boas

And after Chelsea Newcastle travel to Norwich, home to two games in a row against Swansea and  West Brom and then Bolton away – and there are quite a few points Newcastle should be able to pick up in those games, which will be critical to having Newcastle high up in the Premier League when the transfer window opens on January 1st.

This is what Alan Pardew told the press today from their Manchester Headquarters:

Newcastle are not expected to get anything out of this game today by those so called experts, and this is how Alan Pardew reacted to that:

“I think it’s understandable if you look at the teams we’re playing, and what the players they’ve brought in have cost.”

“I still think the odds are against us, and I don’t think many pundits will actually give us three points, but that’s what we’ll try to get.”

“You look at the three games, and all along I’ve felt Chelsea’s going to be the one which is going to be more advantageous to us.”

“It’s going to be a full house, and 52,000 Geordies screaming at Chelsea will give us an advantage.” “We’ve got this bonus game of trying to get a win.”

“We have always thought if we could take three points from the three games, it would be magnificent.” “It’ll set us up for December.” “We’re going to try everything we can to do it.”

“I don’t like it when managers moan about how much money other clubs have got.” “But you would have to say we’re outsiders in the two games we’ve got coming up, and probably favourites in the next one.”

“It’s difficult to overturn those odds, but we’ll try to do that.”

Alan’s so right that if we only can beat Chelsea the lads will have got three points from those three very tough games in succession, and we’ll still be in very good shape for the December games.

We still expect that Newcastle can really learn from what happened last Saturday against Manchester City and if we can tighten up that defense over the full 90 minutes,  and take any chances that are offered, that’s the way the lads can win this game and literally shock the football world.

That would be just great, and I can just see those positive headlines for Newcastle all around the world.

Howay The Lads!!

    Not expecting anything today, just a good account of ourselves. If we had our strongest team out then I would be more confident but it exposes our lack of depth in certain areas, especially in defence.

    If Ba got injured then where would we be. Soooo….hopefully it’s another game for Arfa to get back to his best and adapt to the league.

    We’ll know a lot more about the players we need to come in following these three games in the run up the the transfer window, in that respect they couldn’t have come at a better time.

    Hope it’s a good game and we manage to scrape something from it!! HWTL!

    Captain Colo will start. He has too!! I am expecting alot more from Cabaye today, especially if he is against fletcher and carrick. He has not been great recently and i think he will be the best centre mid on the park today and he needs to prove it. Saying that, he is alot better with Tiote beside him. 3-1 United for me, sorry lads..

    Afternoon gents. Been away for a while. New job has prevented me from regular internet access. I trust you’re all well. Expecting a good match today, but not expecting a particularly good result. Man U haven’t looked themselves for a while mind. You never can tell with these matches. Fingers crossed.
