Newcastle Just One Point Out Of Third Place

Newcastle will go into the final two games of the season looking to collect all 6 points.

Papiss Cisse scoring first goal last night

Alan Pardew, after somehow crafting a win against the Champions League Finalists last night at Stamford Bridge, made that clear following the game.

Newcastle’s amazing win was made possible by two simply superb strikes from that man Papiss Cisse, who now has 13 goals in 12 appearances in Newcastle’s famous number 9 shirt.

Alan Pardew had this to say after the game last night:

“It’s all to play for,”    “We’ve got ourselves in a great position. You don’t get in this position unless you have great players and some of our players tonight were phenomenal.

“We’ve got two games to go and the aim is to try and win them both and see where that leaves us.”  “We’re very much focused on trying to achieve.”

“It’s not often in a professional career you get an opportunity to break into the top four of this country and we have been in and around it all year, we’ve touched fourth place and third a couple of times and with two to go we’re just below it.”

“There is pressure on us. We’re putting it on ourselves to try and get that fourth place. If we miss it it will still be a phenomenal season and I’m looking forward to the highlight video because some of the goals have been unbelievable.”

“We are all looking forward to Sunday. It’s going to be a special day for us, for everybody, a team challenging for the title and a team challenging for the Champions League.”

“If someone had said that to us at the start of the season, we probably wouldn’t have believed them.”

Newcastle are on 65 points in 5th place, and level with Tottenham, who of course have a much better goal difference than the Magpie, and both sides are just one point behind Arsenal.

Newcastle will next play league leaders Manchester City on Sunday, in their final home game of the season, and then the lads play at Everton a week come Sunday.

Newcastle could play spoilers to Manchester City’s Premier League title ambitions,  if they take anything out of the game on Sunday, with Manchester United expected to win their final two games at home to Swansea and away at Sunderland.

The game on Sunday is another sellout, and it will again be broadcast live on TV around the world, which is fitting for such an important game, and if Newcastle can get all 3 points, then absolutely anything is possible when we go to the last game at Everton.

Newcastle now have 19 points more than the whole of last season, from their 36 games played – and that’s just an amazing performance from our team.

    Well done lads and Pards and the rest of the staff for a great result last night. That Cisse goal was incredible. That Cisse goal was incredible ( Well… he scored
    Right then. I think there’s another couple of twists in the final run in. One being that Arsenal reckon they are home and dry in 3rd. Ahem Arsenne look over your shoulder.
    Arsenal get 2 draws, Spuds get 4 points We do the unbelievable and get 6 points and finish 3rd. Then…………..wait for it………… Chelsea only go and win the CL and go through as 4th leaving appy arry and appy arsenne flapping and spluttering all the way to the Euafa cup…ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    And you now what? Its not beyond the realms of possibility.

    A few weeks ago I posted a comment with the header of “James Perch an apology”

    That apology stands even higher. The guy was amazing, passion passion passion iced with plenty of guts. Perchino I hope you read this blog and see how many of us you have won over with your amazing performances. Just brilliant.
    As for Pardew, you’ve rarely put a foot wrong since taking over, DO NOT make the mistake of letting James Perch go, he is one of our most versatile and important players. Reward him for his efforts and keep him at RB. Simpson are you reading too? THIS is how you turn it around and win unanimous fan support. Pull your socks up and prove your doubters wrong. Perchino did…

    Hey fellas. First post on here after reading all the blogs for as long as I can remember.

    Great performance and result last night…Santon and Perch were incredible and Cabaye was forced to do more of the ugly stuff than in recent weeks but he and Mr. T were a wall across the middle of the park.

    On a seperate note…has anybody seen what Freddie Shephard said on TalkSport this morning…how we may lose Cissé in the summer??? Didn’t take long for THAT story to crop up!! That and the phantom £15m release clause…do me a favour!!

    Fantastic result against a Chelsea with possibly one eye on the FA cup.But hey we’ve taken three points of a London based club that contains all the bad elements of our Premier league ie so called celebs Terry, Cole and Lampard and with it the media hype coupled with Russian oligarch money- you couldn’t write the script..
    The 2 Cisse goals make up for the dreadful first half at Wigan on Saturday, we played into their hands by giving Wigan too much space in midfield.I think we should have played 5 in midfield , which is exactly the way we should play on Sunday with Cisse the lone striker
    We have got to treat this game like no other game at home this season and that’s why a 5 man midfield would work and I’d put Ba on the bench with maybe Gutherie in midfield..
    50,000 Geordies in full voice will provide an electric atmosphere, this will be our Cup Final.
    We’ve got an opportunity let’s not waste it

    All the pressure/expectations is on Arsenal and Spurs. We have nothing to lose, and nothing to fear.

    But for Vermaelen’s last-minute goal at the Emirates we would be clear in third…
