Alan Pardew held his press conference as usual and he was as upbeat as ever in front of the local supporters and he put Liverpool and Newcastle United on the same level at the moment.
Alan Pardew – seems very confident of Newcastle’s chances this season
Alan is very upbeat on the squad he has helped assemble at Newcastle and he still thinks he can finish in the top four in the league table, and at the moment we are four points behind Tottenham, who are in 4th place at the moment in the league table.
Alan, like other players have pointed out this week, thinks that there are points in the next few upcoming games for Newcastle, starting at Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
Alan was also interviewed yesterday on BBC Sport, and he had this to say about the team he currently has and convinced Mike Ashley to keep some of his top players after some big clubs came in for them at the end of August:
“It was a tough summer. I convinced owner Mike Ashley that we needed another year with this team.” “We deserved it after last year, so we kept it all together even though some big hitters came in.”
“But they are going to have to pay a lot of money for our players.” “I genuinely do believe that we can finish in the top four. I still think we are in a good position. I believe I can win every game.”
“I am Newcastle manager, I shouldn’t be in a job if I don’t think I can win every game.”
Newcastle will have to start hitting top form if we are to climb the league table and finish in the top four, and we’ll also have to be lucky with injuries – which we haven’t been so far this season.
But it’s certainly possible if Newcastle can hit their top form from now on for us to do even better than last season, even though we’ve made only a mediocre start to the season.
Believing they can do it is half the battle for our players, and form the interviews we’ve seen this season, our lads are not short on confidence or belief.
Howay The Lads!!
