Alan Pardew seems simply delighted that the St. James’ Park signs are going back up, and in the local press yesterday, it was suggested the signs will be back up almost immediately, and we certainly hope that’s the case.
Alan Pardew – three top players have good chance to play at Sunderland
Alan was interviewed after the Wonga deal had been announced yesterday, and he wants the St. James’ Park signs put up at least before the Sunderland game at the Stadium of Light a week on Sunday, because he thinks it will give the Geordie fans a big lift:
“The sign’s are going back up, I said do it before Sunderland.”
And the good news is that all three of Newcastle’s top players currently out injured – Coloccini, Steven Taylor and Tim Krul have a good chance of being back for the vital derby game at Sunderland a week on Sunday.
“If I am honest, I think Colo, Tayls and Tim will have a good chance of being fit for the Sunderland game.” “I would put them, at 70-30 or 80-20. Somewhere in between. That’s a big lift straight away.”
After an average start to this season, we need to get a good result at Sunderland, and then try to get back to the winning ways of last season – that’s going to be important in the upcoming games, so that we don’t fall too far back in the league table.
There’s no doubt that we’ve missed all three players since they’ve been out, and it will be great if they are back and ready to take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light – we need a win in that game, that’s for sure.
