Pardew – Newcastle The Most Aggressive Club I’ve Worked For


There are lots of quotes from Alan Pardew today about the transfer market, and obviously most of the comments are aimed at trying to convince Newcastle fans the club did all they could to get Loic  Remy to Newcastle  but at the end of the day we failed to do that – for whatever reason – and “almost”  just doesn’t count.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle are very aggressive in transfer market

But one of the quotes from Alan that got our attention today, is when he talks about the people that do the transfer  negotiating for Newcastle – principally Managing Director Derek LLambias and Secretary Lee Charnley, with some help from Mike Ashley at times.

Alan says they are the most aggressive negotiators he’s ever worked for.

This is what Alan said in the local press today, talking initially  about the Newcastle fans:

“They have had enough false promises from managers here in the past – even from myself with the Andy Carroll situation.”  “I’m not going to fall into that trap again.”  “All I will say is that since I have been at the club – which is all I can talk about, my history here – we are the most aggressive I’ve ever seen us in terms of the people who do the negotiations.”

“Mike, Derek and Lee Charnley have been aggressive in the market.”  “They know that I’m weak and they want to strengthen my hand.”  “I thank them for that. Hopefully they get the players in.”

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so we still have 12 days left to see what Newcastle can achieve in the transfer window this month.

But at the end of the day – the results are all that matters,  and if they are not achieved – it doesn’t really matter f you worked around the clock or were unlucky – or this or that happened.

It may make you feel a bit better, but the truth is if you don’t get the players in, you have failed.

That’s the bottom line.

We’re hoping Newcastle will not fail.

    Someone said yesterday that this was a good name to follow on twitter. So I did and they claim that le10sport is NOT their source!

    He’s not saying what you’re portraying in your headline Ed.
    He’s saying they are more aggressive now than they’ve ever been since he was appointed.

    I have to add, there’s been a lot of misguiding headlines here as of recent. I know it’s your blog and you do what you want with it, but staying within what is actually said would be an improvement as things are.

    I’ve been waiting for Mancini to come into my store in Manchester all week to ask him if we can borrow Guidetti for a bit, I reckon I’ll be a better negotiator than Llambias!,,,,

    I think you should show Ed more respect you cheeky git. He works tirelessly around the clock to bring us all the latest news on Our great club and you have a dig over minute details.

    Id like to see you try doing it. Having had my own blog in the past I know how much hard work it is, it takes up a hell of a lot of time and effort.

    Get a grip!!

    ok we lost remy! is that it? no other options? no plan b- 1 player identified to get us goals that we need to stay up- he goes to QPR and thats it ? f???ing pathetic. players should have been identified months ago ,ready to step straight into the team. 2 weeks it is feb, very little time to get points on the board to stay up. its not just our luck that has to change, the football has to as well.

    i would say it is why he employes a muppet and gives him a long term deal, because he will ask no questions and take the flack for jabba, hence why chris hughton went, he felt had had earned the right to be backed more and rightly so, but ashley went searching for a new muppet. we wont have a proper manager under this man, because he cannot cope with one, he is weak and a coward!

    In my comment i showed Ed the outmost respect in the way i said it. I didn’t even call him a cheeky git like a certain someone did in their response.
    I don’t run a blog cause i don’t have the time to do so. But as I said, there’s been a few misleading headlines, especially in this window.
    I’ve been commenting on this blog for the best part of 3 years, and Ed has my sincerest thanks for all the effort he puts in, especially given what he’s gone through.

    That doesn’t excuse though, IMO, the way the headlines are put up and in no way portrays what is said in the article. Mistakes happen, but they’ve been reoccurring a few times as of late. That is my right to voice, and i’m not being cheeky whatsoever.

    Pards must get sick of being the one in the middle here, i wonder if ashley would ever consider doing a ‘Lance ARMSTRONG’ and just come out and tell us how it is.

    We read Pards coming out with ‘we are after big names but only at the right price’ – you dont get the big names at the RIGHT price they are always inflated prices, just like we did with Carroll……. Ashley still has a grudge against us, that i am certain of. Only question is how big a grudge ?

    This window is slowly coming to an end, still plenty of time but we need players in for the games after Reading. Wont tempt fate but injuries happen all the time…..

    Dannyo- so ur greatful to ed, u appreciate the illness he has gone through. But u still complain about a couple of “misleading headlines” to be fair they aren’t that far from the truth when u think of the that few clubs pards has been employed by. And if ed didn’t run this blog, then u wouldn’t have anywhere to voice your opinions and wouldn’t be able to show your disapproval at a few typos!! I imagine your the type that sees the bad stuff in most but rarely commends the good people do??

    He has posted on here for years and was in no way having a pop at Ed.

    We all love Ed but Dannyo was simply stating what HE felt.

    Yesterday, BillSon had a pop at Ed, other people have this month in a more aggressive way than Danyo.

    lay off

    Pards they know you are weak. That’s why they employed you. Their a pair of rats who haven’t got the brass to even show face, leave it all up to you to stutter and stumble through interviews. Pards aint getting any younger, and looking at his past with his alcohol and whatever else, heart attack might be on the cards, from being stuck in the firing line, when their ducking for cover.
    Hallelujah! Ashleys gonna take more of a hands on approach! Jeesssuusss just when i thought it couldn’t get any worse.

    Not saying your wring a few have commented on it lately
    But try looking at it in a different view
    Ed is a toon fan, he is not a journalist
    Try and a find i single poster on this blog, me and you included, who’s postings this month have been up and down to match the frustrations of the club atm
    Not defending him, he doesn’t need it imo, but we’ve all over exagerated in our views lately

    Belfast- I appreciate people’s opinions, I’ve just read on the last few blogs people posting negative criticism for a guy who puts his all into this blog and then people have the cheek to slam him for a few mistakes. That’s my view!:-)

    So Mbiwa is our answer to set pieces? Lol
    1 goal in the French league in over 100 games 😉
    Not dissin him as he’s a decent defender if we ever get him but hopefully the English game would let him score goals,although it should be easier to get them in France

    bambams the grudge runs deep. borders hatred imo. if it wasnt for the fact tv revenue is huge in the prem, and the spin offs were so lucrative, he would ruin us- hes not making a bad job of that as it is , imagine if the financial gain was not so lucrative,- the mind boggles!

    The transfer window should be a exciting time looking forward to great players coming in but its just the same old shit. Pardew isn’t the manager hes just fitting in with MA plans or he wouldn’t be working there. Some 5 year project Like k keegan sead Ash & Lam haven’t a clue. So how can they be working hard.

    Nufc1984 – Dannyo has been commenting on here for ages and i dont think i’ve seen a bad word or an insult towards anyone especially not Ed, So for you to come out and play the guilt card on him is a total disgrace.. Everyone knows about Ed and everything he’s been through and although people comment about his headlines that doesnt mean we dont respect him, we all are grateful to Ed for the way he has kept giving us articles to read and comment on during tough times for himself

    Marty toon
    Couldnt give to sh1ts about his scoring to be honest atm the main priority is to stop leaking goals all over the place and as long as he does the buisness at the back i dont care what ge dies in an attacking sense
    The need to have a big lump to score from set pieces is mad anyway surely it would of been easier to just be a bit more inventive with our set pieces?

    Fair response Dannyo, and the cheeky git was tongue in cheek. Adjust think people having a pop at Ed should stop for a second and think if how much time he puts into this blog for us fans.

    Constructive criticism is all well and good but if you are going to pick up on something as small as that then ID have to ask on the other end of the scale where your praise is when Ed bands out 10 articles in a day for example.

    If you’re going to criticise someone when they do something you don’t like, then you should praise them when they do something you do like. A bit like a manager I guess.

    No hard feelings mate.
