Pardew Upbeat – Hints At New Signings On The Way


Alan Pardew seems upbeat, even though Newcastle are now just two points above 3rd bottom placed Wigan Athletic after yesterday’s games, and we have a tough game tonight against Everton at home, although it would appear that Demba Ba will still be a Newcastle player – and should play in this game.

Alan Pardew – very upbeat considering the circumstances

This is what Alan said last night:

“I do think there is some real light at the end of the tunnel.” “It’s not as if I think the team has massively malfunctioned and we’ve got a problem.” “I look at this group of players and know that if they were all fit, we would be in such a great position.”

“If I had my best team out and we were losing games, I really would be moaning.” “We’ve had some good news in terms of players coming back, with both Steven Taylor and Yohan Cabaye due to return soon.” “And there’s also positive news in terms of negotiations taking place and hopefully that will come to fruition.”

Hopefully there are some deals in the offing for Newcastle, with Mathieu Debuchy very likely to sign by the end of the week, and he is expected to be at the game tonight at St. James’ Park – and Newcastle have also bid for 21 year-old French U21 center-back Nicolas Isimat-Mirin.

Danny Simpson is a new injury casualty and joins the long injury list, but we think James Perch will be a decent replacement, and we’ll also have Mike Williamson and hopefully Vurnon Anita back, and for Everton Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar are both doubtful.

Aston Villa got a good 2-2 draw at Swansea today, after surviving early pressure when Swansea should really have put the game out of reach, but missed their chances in the first 30 minutes of the game.

And with Southampton holding Arsenal 1-1 at St. Mary’s Stadium and West Ham winning 2-1 at home to Norwich, Newcastle are now just 2 points above the drop zone and we really need to get back to our winning ways against Everton tonight.

Howay The Lads!!

    Not much to say about signings really, Debuchy will sign by this week and as Ed said ‘he should be at the match’. Of course ITKs are out in numbers saying this and that, but most of it is bullshit. Apparently a surprise signing is taking place very soon and it’s rumored to be Sakho or possibly Remy, but it’s anybodys guess.

    I hope for all of us we can get some positives in this new year, we always se to spend two thirds of the season bitching with each other weather wr are winning or loosing!!!

    Maybe we should organise a pantomine for next year?

    What about cinderella starring Ibiza as cinders with jail4ashley, munstermag and toonacious as the ugly sisters!!! i will produce it and tsunki can direct, and you know what im like with any backchat so behave!

    All moneys raised goes to MA’s to help out the spending for players for next january.

    Beefman13 – Sounds like an ill- conceived, low budget affair, that will close after one night due to the director losing the plot! I noticed you vanished after the Arsenal pantomine when I called u out the other night and yet here you are sniping in the wee hours of the morning. I await your updated version of your defence of MA’s five year plan, after all you have had several days to think one up now. I would picture u more as the rear end of a
    pantomine horse rather a director, staring lovingly up MABeefman13 – Sounds like an ill- conceived, low budget affair, that will close after one night due to the director losing the plot!

    @11:

    I,m in for that, but only if you get the lads to wear drag and the Team do the backing vocals ! Proceeds to charity and not towards the transfers?

    Good plan Beefy ! and stop being such a miserable pain in the butt @ 12 !

    “If I had my best team out and we were losing games, I really would be moaning.”

    You’ve had your “best” team out on several occasions this season and you still lose so stop using that as an excuse you clueless muppet. The team that played the two home games (WHU and Swansea) that started this dismal run can hardly be classed as “makeshift”

    Krul, Simmo, Taylor, Willo, Santon, HBA, Cabaye, Jonas, Fergie, Cisse and Ba.

    Truth is even when you have your so called “best” team out there you cant get the best out of them.

    8 points from 15 before the news and 12 points from a possible 45 since the team learned of your eight year deal. They dont want you either !!!
