Newcastle Now Combatting The Stresses Of Success


All Newcastle fans want to see next season is for the club to push on and have another excellent season in the Premier League.

Alan Pardew – at Sunderland game

And maybe, just maybe, we can qualify for the European Champions league, but finishing top four in the Premier League – the world’s best football league, is an enormous task for any club, and it seems to get harder every season.

There’s no doubt about it that the expectations next season will be an awful lot higher than they were this season, but Newcastle must therefore spend wisely in the summer, again, and hopefully make some more stellar summer transfer deals.

This is what Alan told the local press today,  that next season will be a huge challenge and being Newcastle manager is not an easy job:

“There’s no doubt about that.” “It is a challenge to be manager of this team. To have assembled the group we have, myself, John Carver, Stoney and Woody are very proud.

“The backroom staff, right down to Thommo – Ray Thompson – the kitman, have all played a part.”    “It’s the spirit that is unique, and we’ve got to try not to lose that next year.”

“That was my message at the end of the Everton game.”  “I thought we showed great spirit in the second half.”   “The other games were going against us, and we were 2-0 down, and we were still having a go.”

“It would have been easy to sulk and lose 4-0, but we didn’t.”  “We kept going, and I thought the scoreline could have been different.” “Now we look forward to next season.”

It’s a challenge to be Newcastle manager – tell us news not history. 😀

It will no doubt be extra difficult next season, simply because the lads shocked us all, and were so great in the season just finished.

But that kind of stress happens when you become successful – it gets harder to keep getting better.

But we’d much rather be in that position than struggling in mid-table or heaven forbid – struggling against relegation.

No – we’ve thought about this for a long long time (about two seconds), and we  like it much better fighting it out at the top again – that’s where Newcastle belongs.

Howay The Lads!!

    Reading between the lines lewytoon desperately wanted to be 2nd.

    Pardew always falls out with Ashley, he said so himself. But it’s not the big media bust-up that was attempted to be set in motion by jealous mackems.

    Did somebody actually suggest bringing micky ‘absolute pleb’ owen back in a previous thread?! That waste of a man isn’t fit to lace tiote’s boots, or clean our toilet’s. However I would give him a 5a to stand in the middle of the pitch in a mackem strip, just so we could all laugh at him. Madness

    I wish i could do a post just once without a mistake in it. Please forgive my incompetence.

    It wasnt Greggs, he was using Ashleys Luncheon Vouchers for Mcdonalds on the sly, cheeky bastord.

    Feeling a bit sorry for KK as any manager should be given a couple of seasons to get his team in shape.

    I wanted him to have next season to drag jose and co down to the bottom 6. 🙁

    Might go against the grain here, but think Dalglesh was sacked too early and could have very much turned his teams fortunes around, they have outplayed many teams this year without getting the points and i think getting rid of KKK will prove a mistake by their owners.

    Glad he has been binned as i couldnt have stomached him proving to be a success next year, which i personally believe could have happened.

    Anybody know what type of CMs Michael Richardson, Mehdi Abeid & Bradden Inman are likely to turn out to be? So are they attacking midfielders, defensive midfielders or box-box?

    I agree check, maybe it’s more out of fear than anything else lol, Premier league is a tough place to be though, Liverpool might be relegated next season.

    When do these fair play rules come in? I heard teams must be breaking even by 2015.

    From NUFC.com

    New MO brochure
    being prepared

    The full list of teams Owen netted against for Manchester United tells its own story (most recent first):

    Aldershot, Leeds, Blackpool, Southampton, Bolton, Scunthorpe, Aston Villa, West Ham, Wolfsburg, CSKA Moscow, Barnsley, Man City, Wigan.

    Put that in your brochure and smoke it….

    I think teams have to start balancing the books by 2015 and then they have 3 years or something in which to accomplish it. I’m not 100% tho an could be wrong

    pbNcl – dont think Man City will be balancing their books anytime shortly this will be proven when they offer RVP a kings Ransom to sign this summer.

    Hope he does his cruciate as he signs his contract, disagreeable pr1ck.

    Whats all this KK about Kenny Dogleash?? theres only 1 KK & thats KEVIN KEEGAN my toon brothers. Dogleash was the most threatening thing to happen to our team before we actually got relegated, he sold all our best players in one season and brought in has beens to replace them i for 1 remember he almost got us relegated in the time he mismanaged the Toon and i don’t care much for that useless waste of space!

    hey KD sorry about your damn luck!

    Word in our Brum office today is that Chrisy Hoots is to be appointed the new Villa boss. Anybody heard anything concrete? Last I heard he was linked with WBA job. Can’t imagine Villa fans being pleased about another bluenose manager being appointed.

    I’ve got a wierd feeling Michael Owen will get signed by the makems and start a war of words before the derby games because he felt so mistreated by all the money we payed him not to play and not to save us from the drop a few year ago. jumped up little nobheed infact the makems wouldn’t even take him hahaha.

    Some kid on F365’s forum last night suggested Owen would be offered a ‘pay-as-you-play’ deal by Southampton, but the consensus was that this was just some speculation made up by the press as they don’t have a clue who would want him either.
