It seems that Alan Pardew took a little time off this week to go on a coaching course, and it seems to have done him a lot of good, as he realizes just what a fantastic club Newcastle United are – even if we have our ups and downs every season – and they are usually downs – if we are honest.
Alan Pardew – loves it at Newcastle
This is what Alan said in the local press today, and he says he still loves life on Tyneside:
“I went on a league coaching course this week and came away knowing how lucky I am.” “To be manager in front of 52,000 fans is great. It is a fantastic club – I love it here.”
“There is nobody more determined than me to turn this situation around. Hopefully I can do it with my captain.” “No season can be written off. Every season is very important because it builds momentum and confidence.”
“Everton are an example of a team like that. We are where they were last year.” “They had a great second half to the season last year and look where they are this season. They have been injury-free and on a nice run.”
“They have had close games, like the one against us recently when they edged it 2-1. We were winning those close games last year.”
Newcastle fans may be getting just a little concerned with the current situation at the club, with less than two weeks left in this transfer window, and at the very least we need a striker and a center-half brought into the club – and there’s still the Coloccini affair to be sorted out on Monday – and that’s a really bizarre situation for any club to have to handle half way through the season.
Unfortunately it had to be Newcastle.
Some would say - of course.
