Bet On Alan Pardew To Bring Back Glory Days To Newcastle


Alan Pardew has today dedicated his Premier League Manager Of The Season Award to the staff and everyone associated with Newcastle.

Alan Pardew – after the game last Sunday

That’s not surprising from a man who is an expert at man-management, and who is leading Newcastle back to the glory days of the past.

This is what Alan Pardew has said today about his award:

“It’s fantastic to get an award like this, but it’s really for the whole of the staff and everyone associated with the football club,”   “None of what’s happened this season would have happened without them.”

“I’m lucky to work with people like John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman, and I’m also lucky to work with a fantastic group of players. They deserve the accolades for everything they’ve done this season.”

“We have the biggest game of the season in front of us,  and we’re looking forward to it immensely,”  “The Champions League is the pinnacle of the game and to be competing for it in the final game is fantastic.”

“It would be a major achievement by everyone at this football club if we were to get there, but to finish fifth is also a marvelous achievement. We’ve had a great season and we’re in for another exciting afternoon.”

And it’s interesting that when John Carver was Assistant Manager to Bobby Robson in 2004, we finished in 5th place, and in his first full season back on Tyneside as Assistant Manager, Newcastle will finish in at least 5th place, and maybe even higher.

It’s also strange because Bobby Robson was sacked in 2004, because 5th place just wasn’t good enough.

But that action by Freddy Shepherd started the decline of Newcastle, which ended up in us being relegated in May of 2009, three years ago.

But since that time Newcastle have had three excellent seasons, and are back in the top five of the Premier League, and thanks also goes out to Chris Hughton, who got us straight back to the Premier League in that memorable one season in the Championship.

It’s been a great comeback for Newcastle, but it’s also strange how things sometimes turn out.

But we really hope that Alan Pardew continues his great work on Tyneside, and brings back the glory days to Newcastle United.

    surely one of Spuds or Arsenal has to choke tomorrow 🙂

    Even if they don’t, what a season its been, hope Ashley has to pay out millions of pounds in bonuses so the staff and players get what they deserve

    In all the Glory days of Keegan, Robson, and Keegan again !

    The fact remains that for more than 50 years we still have not won a major tournament in Domestic Football since The Old Fairs cup in 1969!

    If Pardew manages to do this next season then he will of managed to do what a lot of our most famous Icons and Legends did,nt do in those so called Glory Days!

    There are three other teams i am going to be praying for in the next 10 days:

    1: Tomorrow:

    Fulham and QPR- if they can grind out wins or draws against the Gooners tomorrow then we will be guaranteed of our C.L. dream and the icing will be on the Cake, so to speak!

    2:
    The other is Bayern Munchen, while i am not used to supporting Germans! This is one Mag who will be rooting for Bayern come the 19th May!

    It may even be worth donning my Newcastle Top and driving across the border to watch it Live in some German Bar!

    Better more in depth figures. If you use Spurs as a template and deduct their extra prize money for progression beyond the group stages, we’d earn about 20m from the competition, plus gate receipts and matchday revenue. So maybe about 30m in total.

    love all the crazy betting
    one of the websites over here is giving me 66/1 for nufc win, west brom win, fulham spuds draw

    assuming thats about on the money so a tenner it is

    i’m agreeing with many of the previous poster’s in saying that something crazy is going to happen tomorrow… whether it be the lads storming into 3rd or citeh choking, this season feels as if there are a few surprises still left (like there haven’t been enough already)
    my nerves are jangly
    stomach tight
    its only saturday

    gotta say it again tho, regardless, what a magnificent season, one to always remember

    This is all of course assuming the Cottagers and QPR do the Bizz tomorrow!

    And we do the Bizz at Goodison Park! Here,s hoping we dont get 4th and Chelksi don,y win against Bayern on 19th May!

    Maybe tempted to get the Cognac out tomorrow to relieve some of the pressure! But to get 4th and miss out will be a real Bummer!

    The last quote says nothing about a RB.. Im sure Cabaye has loads of friends in football.. Could be that Melo fella he played with at Lille weve been linked with him and he’s free

    The price being quoted today is £6m, can’t see that being a snag, particularly if we get at least half of that for Simpson.

    and we paid 5 mill for santon .. it does tie up that we will pay decent money if the quality is there and potential ..watch this space I reckon

    as for players leaving if we don’t get champions league spurs are gonna come in for ba I reckon.
