Alan Pardew said the second goal was the turning point in tonight’s game, which came after 67 minutes and it was the second goal by by former Newcastle player Craig Bellamy.
The two managers at tonight’s game
Here is Alan’s interview he gave to the BBC immediately after the game.
Alan was disappointed by the second goal as Newcastle had played well in those first 20 minutes of the second half when the score was 1-1.
It’s interesting that Alan said there were one or two players Newcastle were looking at in January.
It was only one game, and not one that Newcastle really deserved to get anything from tonight.
Newcastle seemed not to be as positive as they usually are, but Alan seemed pleased enough with the performance.
But it’s only one game – and we’ll come again next year.
Howay The Lads!!
