Getting Into Europe Will Help Us Financially – Pardew


Alan Pardew has praised the way the club is currently being run financially.

Alan Pardew – club is well run financially

With clubs like Rangers, Port Vale and Portsmouth all seemingly going belly up, it was good news yesterday that Newcastle have a firm grip on their finances.

And certainly all the trends are going in the right direction and Newcastle lost only £3.9M last financial year through June of last year, on increased revenues of £88.4M.

This is what Alan had to say today on Newcastle’s fine financial results:

“I think our fans should be pleased,” “There are a lot of fans up and down the country – Port Vale this week – where you could really worry about your football club in terms of the financial standing of it.”

“We haven’t got that going on, we are in a good financial situation.” “Mike Ashley, Derek Llambias, Lee Charnley, the Secretary and the board here have worked really hard with the finances and we have discipline in that sense.”

“We have to be competitive within that financial discipline.”

But even though there are some constraints on spending  Pardew seems confident that the money will be available to strengthen the side this  summer.

Alan can help himself greatly and boost the money available to him this summer, if he can guide Newcastle to a Europa League position for next season.

And we think finishing in our current 6th position in the Premier League could have Newcastle do just that.

Alan continued:

“Obviously, I would like more and I have to get a small revenue.” “Hopefully, that will start if we get into Europe that will help.”

“We are in great shape,” he said. “ And that is good news for us as we look to progress.” “We know it’s not easy at the moment, I pick up a local paper and see that jobs are tough up here.”

“We aren’t laying people off, we are probably going to employ a few extra.” “So that’s a good thing.”

The lads will face a very tough game at the Emirates on Monday night, and a draw from the game, which is being televised live around the world,  would be a very good result for Newcastle.

    11 games to play, and i hope we go all out in them. It’s so important that we reach Europe imo, but i’m not holding my breath.
    A draw is the best outcome i’m hoping for on Monday, Arsenal are finishing hard this year it seems.
    Maybe our first two draws could become another unbeaten run? Would help 🙂

    Dont know whether i should admit up to this but hope the Mackems beat Liverpoll 2moro, hate the bindippers currently, hope the mackems pick up a few really nasty injuries along the way though. The target now for me for the rest of the season is staying above scumpool, think it will be tough but it would for me help with recruitment in the summer to finish 6th, breaking up the so called big six.

    Financially as seen by results over the past days we have no right to do so, also the season will still be a success if we finish 7th but a disppointing one.

    Also if we were to sell a NAME in the summer for 25/30million that money if used as well as the latest batch of recruitment could seal us in the top 4 in a couple of years. So i could almost come to terms losing Tiote, as much as i like the guy, think hes a little overated by some on here.

    Telling the entire world and his dog how good a manager I was. I knew I was the best but I should have said nowt and kept the pressure off ‘cos they’d have worked it out for themselves. – quote ?

    Alright lads, I know some people were talking about this briefly the other day about the EXTRA EUROPE SPACE. But this was all to do with the domestic cups (league and FA cup).

    Well what if Man City or Man U won the Europa league? The winners of that goes straight into the champions league don’t they? Or just back into the Europa? Either way, surely that means another space for a team in the premierleague because they’ve already qualified for Europe… If anyone knows then feel free to share because I’ve been thinking about it and asking people all morning!!! Just means that more chance NUFC will be playing thursday nights!

    Im not saying everybody should jump on some Ashely Llambias bandwagon and praise them but I do think they are committed to the club and serious about it now.

    DL put up his hands in the interview and said “we made mistakes, we didnt know what we were doing when we came here”
    Pardew’s interview last week corroborates this fact.

    Ashley is trying to turn us into the next Arsenal. A self financing club that can compete with the best. And if he achieves it then I think we can forgive him for the past.

    He has shown commitment in the purchase of Cisse, He has been present at every game this season and when he is at St James he generally looks more interested in the club now. Compare how he is sat watching the games now compared to a year ago?

    Doesn’t reading between the lines mean you’re not reading anything?

    Check @ 3 – I put forward that very awful thought that it mau be good if the mackems won. Not many takers on that!

    I think at least the last 3 articles should have been just one imho, it cuts up one large and very banter-worthy subject into a blog-trotting fest. I’m on a phone man slow down!!!! 🙂
    The title of this one is kinda self-explanatory too isn’t it ha ha?

    Tsunki – looking at the table and end of season standings etc.. then yes it would be more benificial if the Unwashed got a result against Liverpool, i think we ALL think that, but dont put these types of thoughts in writing please, keep it to yourself!!!!!!!!! 😉

    If Pardew the bulls lug was any good as a manager we would be well on for Europe instead of hoping other teams drop points we should be winning games to make sure we qualify.

    Pardew is full of the proverbial bull crap.

    He says that people at nufc are not getting laid off.

    That’s totally inaccurate. What about Alan smith and Peter lovenkrands?

    They’ll be claiming job seekers allowance cone June and I for one am upset that mr. Pardew has forgotten that these 2 rich footballers will be struggling on benefits soon. I just hope he can give them both a good reference to help them back into employment sooner rather than later!

    😀

    I’d go with this against the Arses:

    _______________Krul_______________
    Raylor_____Willo_____Colo_____Santoon
    _______________Tiote
    HBA_______Guthrie_Cabaye_______Jonas
    _______________Ba

    I actually think Pardew is going to do something out of character and go for this one though, playing HBA, Ba and Cisse from the start.

    Billy, Ted & Bob (as i’m assuming you’re all the same sad little individual). Perhaps I am a mug, but not for the previous comment.

    Pardew did not compare Port Vale and Newcastle as similar clubs. He said that fans should be happy the club is being run financially well, otherwise we could have a situation similar to that of Port Vale (going in to administration). Shall we continue this ridiculous discussion or move on?
