Pardew – Newcastle Going For 7 Wins In A Row – Nothing Less


You  cannot accuse Alan Pardew of not trying to win every single game for Newcastle.

Let’s hope this is what Alan Pardew is doing tomorrow after the game

We had to live through the time with Sam Allardyce was at the club, when  Sam’s tactics would be to go in against a top team away from home,  and try to get a draw.

That always seemed like a negative thing to do, because you are limiting the points you are playing for – there’s 3 points available and to only go for one of them seems a bit daft.

And we’ve seen Wigan lately beat Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium,  and Manchester United at the DW Stadium – and we’re sure Roberto Martinez, the Wigan manager,  doesn’t have the same philosophy as big Sam.

And Alan Pardew doesn’t subscribe to big Sam’s way either, and when he first arrived at the club, the Londoner said he would have Newcastle playing good attractive attacking football,  and would try to win every single game, and he’s been true to his word.

This is what Alan told the local press this morning:

“We’re going for seven wins in a row now.” “It will be a marvellous feat, if we can do it. We’re going to try to get that.”

“In some ways I feel we have to win at Wigan.” “We won’t be taking a draw at any time during the game.”

“Even if there is 20 seconds left we will be trying to win the game.”

With Newcastle already in Europe next season in the Europa League, the Magpies can now have a real go in the last four games, and try to get into the Champions League – we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

And Alan was asked if the season had already been a success – which seems an odd question to ask  – after we have just qualified for Europe – and the Newcastle manager had this to say:

“Absolutely.”  “That’s why it gives me a free hand to attack the Champions League.”  “We are now going to be in Europe.”  “That’s the scenario. We can look forward to that.”

“But in the meantime we have four games left to see what our final points total can be.”   “We have to win at Wigan which isn’t easy.”

“In our last result against Stoke we really played well and caused trouble for the top teams.”

Both Chelsea and Tottenham have got  home games on Sunday against QPR and Blackburn Rovers respectively.

So like Newcastle,  they are facing teams fighting relegation this weekend,  so it should be very  interesting to see what the results are in the games.

There’s no doubt that a Newcastle win at Wigan tomorrow afternoon, will put some significant pressure on the two  London teams – and that’s exactly what we are hoping for.

    10 wins is a little strong especially as we have to face chelsea and man city but 8 out of 10 with 2 wins from the last 4 should see us in the champions league and 3rd place but regardless it is a great acheievment to be in the Europa League so i wouldnt be too dissappointed if we were to finish 5th or 6th although Champs league would be GREAT !!!

    Hello lads and lasses. How is all in the and of toon?
    People coming terms with possible champs league football, having an owner making the right decisions for the club (be they controversial or not) and a manager who knows his team brilliantly and how to motivate them?

    Man for man we have a better first team than 14 – 16 of the other 19 teams in the premier league. Agree/disagree? Which teams are better?

    In terms of playing well together as a team we are better than 15-18 premier league teams. Agree/disagree? Who plays better as a team?

    Who are your top 2/3 premier players in each position?

    I don’t know if these numbers are correct but,

    In the last 9 years Chelsea spent 540M on transfers (that is after taking out the income from transfers), and 737M on wages (and I think there are lots of other expenses right?)
    So around 1.5B (!!!) in 9 years. they won 9 times (something). So that is around 170M a year, for a trophy, nice.

    We should sign Jordy Clasie in the summer. Iv’e watched him a lot this season and he will be the best DM in the world in the future. Playing next to Tiote and behind Cabaye we will dominate most teams in the league. He works very hard for the team and his passing and aggression are fantastic he is not as strong as Tiote (no one is) but he makes that up with footballing intelligence, passion and strong mentality.

    Its got to be said there is not a lot f great quality currently in the PL, think the standard has gonde down a little, everyone picks pretty much the same names when asked, not many decent RB’s thats for sure.

    sessegnon is class! saw somewhere they don’t think they’ll keep him in the summer though! could sure see him at chelsea or man city! think the thing is with the premier league is that theres some great players playing in smaller clubs that don’t get the recognition because of who they play for! Names who come to mind are Al-Habsi, moses and McCarthy for wigan, Fletcher at wolves, Hoilett and yakubu at blackburn, Etherington and palacios at stoke, Turner and Sessegnon at the scum, think all these players would do a job in a very top team, i mean if liverpool would have had a finisher like yakubu theyd probs be top 4 right now! If theyse players played for the so called bigger clubs theyd be making it onto lists I think but its hard to see players have had great individual seasons when theyre team has been poor!

    Newcastle

    Papiss Cisse has now scored in six successive Premier League matches. The last player to net in seven straight games was Emmanuel Adebayor for Arsenal in February 2008. Ruud van Nistelrooy holds the Premier League record, having netted in 10 consecutive matches between March and August 2003.
    Cisse has averaged a goal every 68 minutes so far in the top flight. He has 11 goals in his first 10 top-flight appearances. Micky Quinn (with Coventry in 1992-93) is the only player to have made an equally good start to his Premier League career.
    The Magpies have recorded victories in their last six league games, winning the last five by at least a two-goal margin.

    There’s not a lot of good RB’s anywhere!

    I mean seriously… Arbeloa as RB at Real Madrid?! He’s a solid player, but that’s it- he’s nowhere near that standard!

    The only top class RB in the world you’ve gotta say is Danny Simp… Oh I mean Alves… My bad!

    think full back is the hardest position on the pitch to look good in! If you attack too much you get caught out of position and if you defend too much you get slated for not providing attacking threat! Branislav Ivanovic is one of the finest defensive right backs iv seen but offers no attacking support in open play! Think sergio Ramos plays the position well! Was always a huge fan of Habib Beye, cant believe how his career turned out! Toons weakest position has always been right back for a long time, warren barton, stephen carr, danny simpson etc, not slating simmo either before people say that, just saying hes the weakest player in our strongest 11!

    Try and sign Van Aanholt as a back up if we can’t get Pieters?! I think he’d be a shout!

    Everyone saying we have to be carefull with attacking fullbacks should take not of how we played against stoke, it was arguablyour best performance of the season and we were playing with two holding Dm’s in Tiote and Jonas. Santon had licence to get forward
    (And had one of his bet games in a toon shirt)
    all game and if simpson was any good attacking he would have been able to because our Dm’s can cover them in a 4-2-1-3

    i think we need to better our goal difference to have a chance of finishing fourth…..cant see us getting more than 7 points in the last 3 games at best……but it may be enough….
    but what a season…what a season

    This weekend:

    Stoke 1 – 1 Arses
    Nufc 3 -0 Wigan
    Spurs 1 – 2 Blackburn
    Chelski 2 – 1 QPR

    That would give us the added incentive on Wednesday, that if we won Chelski, we’d leapfrog Arses into a net 3rd, then Man City will get beat by Man U and have all the stuffing taken out of them, allowing us to sweep them aside, THEN, The Toffees will be cast away from Liverpool by the time our last match comes around, giving them nothing to play for, which obviously means another win for us.

    Four more wins and 3rd place on the cards! HTL! 😀
