One of the good things Alan Pardew has done right since he arrived on Tyneside is not to take the Newcastle fans’ support for granted.
Alan Pardew – thanking Newcastle fans after Spurs debacle
That’s one of the things we noticed about Chris Hughton when he was at the club, and it’s been followed well by Alan Pardew.
And by the way Chris now has Birmingham back in 3rd place in the Championship after their 3-1 win at Barnsley on Tuesday night, which was their 7th win in the last 10 Championship games, with the other three games ending in draws.
Alan will want the full support of the Geordie fans tomorrow, as they go all out to get back to their winning ways against Wolves at St. James’ Park:
“They’ve been brilliant for us this year.” “We have got great home form at the moment and we want to continue that.” “One of the reasons we have done so well is because of the fans.”
“I really hope they are in good voice because we’re not feeling too confident after Spurs.” “We might talk the talk, but I’m telling you when that game kicks off we could be a bit nervous.”
“We need the fans to really help us with this one.” “If we get past this one, we have two really great games to look forward to.”
“They have stayed with us.” “I went over to the fans at Tottenham to make a point.” “They were brilliant, they are the best fans in the world.”
“Hopefully we can repay our home fans and especially those who travelled when we have not been too good.” “We want to give them some payback tomorrow.”
We’re sure Alan will want the players to repay the fans tomorrow, after what happened at White Hart Lane, but that’s an interesting comment about the players maybe being nervous tomorrow afternoon.
But what we’ve seen of the St. James’ Park crowd this season, they have been really patient with the team and the players, in the vast majority of games.
As long as the players are giving their all for the team, then the Geordie fans will always support their players big time.
But it could still be a lot tougher game then many of us expect tomorrow afternoon, and we have to remember that whoever is the opposition, the lads must try to get all 3 points in every single remaining game this season.
Then we could really shock ourselves.
