Pardew – Team Is Ready – All Bases Covered

Alan Pardew is pleased with the preparation of his Newcastle squad this week, and he thinks they’ve done a pretty thorough job of  preparing the players for Sunderland, in a game that kicks off at 1:30pm this afternoon.

Alan Pardew – pleased with the preparation this week

Alan Pardew is convinced he has his team fully ready for the battle today, as he had this to say in today’s Sunday Sun:

“It’s very much about the preparation of the team. I have been really pleased with the work we have done on the training ground. I would hope to have all the bases covered and then I’ll look forward to my meal on Saturday night as I normally do.”

“I don’t get nervous, if I’m honest. After the game there may be a period of wondering what the ramifications will be, if we were to lose. But then that wouldn’t last long either. You have to prepare yourself very quickly.”

If Newcastle get beat today we have to think Alan will be just a little nervous – because the ramifications will be terrible – and we’d be devastated.

But enough of this negative talk – there’s no reason why our lads cannot put in a good show today and take all three points, and all we need is for most of our top stars like Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse, Yohan Cabaye and Fab Coloccini as just four examples – to be on form and that should do it.

Howay The Lads!!
