Alan Pardew – Mike Ashley Wants Success For Newcastle Fans


Newcastle manager Alan Pardew held a press conference earlier today before training,  and had Tim Krul and Fabricio Coloccini alongside him, and Alan made a really big deal that Newcastle have signed two of their best players to long term deals.

Mike Ashley – wants to build a successful Newcastle side

And so he should too,   because Tim Krul and Fab Coloccini are great players for Newcastle,  and are also the future of the club over the next few seasons.

Alan was in his shirt sleeves (a white shirt) with the blue track-suited Coloccini and Krul on either side of him, and Alan was obviously relieved and delighted that the club had signed up two of  our very best players.

This is what Alan said at the specially arranged press conference:

“Good morning, it’s early especially on the eve of such a big game  but we are so  pleased to announce that our captain Coloccini has signed a new four year contract and our goalkeeper  Tim Krul has signed a new five year contract.”

“We are absolutely delighted with the news and we’re sure our fans are,  and I think it  shows the intent in Mike Ashley to keep the core of this team together,  because that’s really the bedrock of any successful side.”

“As far as I’m concerned, for the players and staff it is going to be a huge boost ahead of tomorrow’s game, and I hope our fans have a nice smile on their face and continue that through Sunday,” 

“We’ve signed Papiss Cisse for a huge fee, but sometimes the most important players are ones you have already, and who have done fantastic.”  “These guys sitting next to me have both got a chance of being the Player of the Year at this football club.”

“They’ve been absolutely terrific, they deserve their new contracts and, for me, it takes a big headache away knowing that these two guys will be in and around me.”

“I think Mike Ashley realizes he is going to be here for the long-term, and in view of that he is trying to make every possible chance for us to bring success to the fans and to the football club.”

“These are major, major signings in terms of doing that. The core of our team now are all under contract for a period of time – the next four or five years – and it gives us a great opportunity now to push on and have a successful season.”

“If I was a fan of Newcastle this morning, I couldn’t have better news than this. I would be absolutely delighted and looking forward to the game, and I hope they come in fantastic spirit tomorrow, and really give us the backing we need.”

Alan went out of his way to say that Mike Ashley had realized since he was going to be at the club for the long term, that  he wants to bring success to the Newcastle club, and that’s really one of the few times somebody has come out and said that Mike wants to build a top side.

But it’s becoming clear that the Newcastle owner  now seems to have a good idea of what he’s doing at Newcastle, and although he keeps making mis-steps, we think he has a good front man in Alan Pardew.

The Londoner who still talks about Newcarstle,  is obviously delighted to be the current manager of Newcastle United, that’s very clear.

Things are shaping up to be exciting times ahead for Newcastle fans, and Alan is also an excellent communicator and Mike needs someone up front,  to tell the fans what’s going on at the club, and Alan does his best to fulfill that job.

With Liverpool being beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at Anfield earlier today, and Chelsea losing 1-0 at West Brom, Newcastle now have a chance to go 7 points ahead of Liverpool with a win against Sunderland tomorrow afternoon, and level on points with Chelsea.

Howay The Lads!!

    Billy….can I ask how we’ve become nerdy geeks? What is this based on?

    1) Us using the same forum as you?
    2) Us maybe enjoying a game or two of fifa?
    3) Us supporting NUFC?
    4) Our opinions differing from yours?
    5) All of the above?

    They’ve only been given new contracts so they can be sold for more come the summer along with Tiote, Cabaye, Ba and Cisse, while HBA will join Barca and become the greatest player in history proving that Pardew is cluless and only employed as Ashley’s puppet. While Mike Ashley is the Sith Lord, Spawn of Satan who wears a coat made from Dalmatian fur and sleeps on a bed made of ten pound notes, wearing a Spurs shirt.

    Just in case a certain group don’t post on this thread, thought I cover the main points for them 😉

    @Billy

    Why does it make a difference if Pardew or O’Neil has won anything before joining there clubs? Surely it only matters what they do at our club

    I love Mackems, taking O’Neilwinning the Scottish title and claiming it as there own. You couldnt made it up.

    Shola Ameobi has more appearances and has scored more goals in Europe than Sunderland have in there entire history.

    Most Sunderland players live, eat and go out to drink and Newcastle.

    Why do you have loads of pink seats on show at your stadium with rubbish all over the pitch?

    Whats your take on this? Cheers.

    billy appears to be completely illiterate. I assume that’s why he’s refering to anyone with a grasp of the English language as ‘nerdy geeks’.

    Poor, poor mackems. As usual, more obsessed with Newcastle United than with their own dump of a ‘club’.

    I actually really like Andre Villas Boas, and I hope he gets given the time he needs.

    Chelsea should have learned by now that the managerial revolving door doesn’t help build a football club.

    He was bought in to oversea an evolution in the teams style and playing staff, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.

    What’s the chances of us scoring 16 2moro to put us above Chelsea?

    TDS…..He certainly does…I’ve thought about re-posting his comments with corrections…might be a full time job though.

    The mackem forums must be really p*ss poor to want to come on a newcastle one for entertainment

    Why do some people seem so delighted that ‘we won’t win anything’? Are you that preoccupied with being proved right that you’d happily do so to the detriment of the club? I hope you’re not at SJP tomorrow. Your kind of negativity is more crippling than bad management.

    Whatever has happened in the past under the Ashley regime, the signing of Colo and Krul are massive for the club because it means Ashley is investing in the team for the best reasons.

    The effect this will have on the other players and potential signings cannot be underestimated.

    It also sends out a signal that if you are worth it you will earn big money at Newcastle. So we can compete at the top of the PL.

    Delighted!! Now get them playing football Pards cos they were poor last week and need to put on a good show against the Mackems.

    HWTL 🙂

    I remember looking at one, and honestly, about 1 in 5 topics was about Newcastle.

    “Why do they always beat us?”
    “How do they have so much fight and spirit?”
    “How are they doing to well when they didn’t spend a penny?”
