It’s going to be a tough game tomorrow at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea.
Alan Pardew – hopes to take chances at Swansea tomorrow
There’s no doubt about that and Swansea this season have given Arsenal and Manchester City defeats when they visited South Wales, and the sell-out crowd tomorrow will be looking forward to making Newcastle United their next victims.
Alan Pardew and Brendan Rogers are good friends, and Alan talked about Brendan and the game tomorrow:
“Brendan is a good friend of mine and he’s doing great.” “He plays an expansive game but of course that leaves them vulnerable.”
“If you can steal the ball like we did at West Brom, we can hurt them fast. That’s what we need to do against Swansea.”
“The game might appear like it is being dominated by Swansea but I think we carry the greater threat.”
“They beat Man City there and Arsenal.” “They’ve had a couple of big scalps at their place.” “It’s tough place to go and the atmosphere is terrific.”
“They’ll be looking forward to us coming to them.” “I will be going to Bolton on Saturday.” “It will be great for me to see them before we play on Monday.”
“They have one less day recovery than us and it could be significant – so we’ll see how that all unfolds.”
Swansea have played 15 games at home this season and have won six and drawn six and lost only three, and their home form is better than their form on the road.
We’ve received some emails from a number of Swansea supporters, and the seem a good bunch, and they are certainly looking forward to the game, and they have also been very complimentary on what Newcastle have been able to achieve this season.
It’s likely to be a good and competitive game tomorrow, and very good to watch, and it’s live on TV around the world – a good time for Newcastle to be at their best.
We just have to hope that our counter-attacking works as well as it did at The Hawthorns, when we tore West Brom apart in that first half.
And we hope also that Demba Ba can get back on the goals trail, although we’ll take goals from anybody in a black and white shirt tomorrow.
A win would be tremendous, and would help put Newcastle closer to getting that Europa League place for next season.
