Newcastle Will Go All Out For Win Tomorrow

Newcastle are building up some good momentum since we rescued our season last month, and brought in five top French players,  but after such an awful spell in the Premier League when in 13 league games we lost 10, and drew one and won the other two – we need to win as many games as possible if we are going to save our season.

alan pardew press conference before Villa game late Jnauary

Alan Pardew – at his press conference yesterday

Alan Pardew as usual was rather upbeat, but also down to earth in his press conference yesterday for the game at Swansea tomorrow, and the truth is we really have to win games like this – if Newcastle are going to finish in a decent position in the league table come the end of May.

This is what Alan said in about the game at Swansea:

“Tomorrow is a big game for us because we’re more competitive than where we were.” “We’re a much stronger team.” “We would probably need to beat Swansea to catch them in the league so it’s a good game for us.”

“Probably if they don’t lose to us it’d be difficult to catch them in ninth, but what we should be thinking about is winning there, and trying to get them in our sights. It’s easier said than done, of course.”

“We had a massive win at Swansea last year with Papiss’ wonder goal and with the one he got last week it bodes well for us.” “We just have to focus on our performance and we are well prepared.”

“No worries about Robbie Elliot and he proved last week he is a very good goalkeeper.” “Colo is doubtful although there is a chance he could play, but I have options now in that position which I didn’t have before I brought Yanga-Mbiwa to the club.”

A draw would be a decent result tomorrow, but given our terrible form over three months, we should be going all out for the win, and we’re sure we’ll see that from Newcastle tomorrow.

And we hope that both Rob Elliot and Mapou Yang-Mbiwa, who is likely to deputize for the injured Coloccini,  have good games, because it’s going to take that if we are to get all three points and continue to move up the league table.

And as we mentioned yesterday, a win will put us only 4 points behind the Swans on 33 points,  and there will still be 10 games to play.

    Would love to see cabaye as captain! A player they should not only build the team around but also the club! Hes a player if we can keep him for 3/4 years i think will go down as a toon legend! Might be rose tinted but i cant think of a premier league centre midfielder id rather have at the moment

    Rainrix…I think many already have since we managed to win back to back games, claim victories after going behind and play has improved after Pardew got what he wanted in the summer.

    A manager of the month award would probably finish of the few who are currently hooked up to life support though 🙂

    ibiza…. We can dream. Its amazing how quickly they disperse when things are going well. That said they’ll likely be revived through some necromancy. I.e a disastrous result such as drawing with swansea 🙂

    Good thing that cabaye seems next in line for the captains position. He’s done so much good for the club in terms of recruitment and off the pitch, never mind the fact that he’s probably the most important player on it. If we can keep cabaye i reckon we can continue to attract the best talent france has to offer he’s that much of a draw

    Rainrix…Or perhaps beating them 1-0 with Swansea scoring an own goal?

    “He can only win if the other team score for us…Pardew out”

    Wow, flashback. That was weird.

    ibiza…. An uncanny impression perhaps you should take jails place and start making derogatory comments about pards at the start of articles 🙂

    Will be Villas Boas and his Madrid bound talisman!

    Would of been nice to see our boys win, nice to see us back in nominations.

    We will just have to wait untill April where we beat Fulham, Sunderland, West Brom and Liverpool with Cisse getting player of the month after back to back hat tricks in a demolition of the mackems and 4-3 thriller v the albion ;)!

    Rainrix…I agree with all that on Cabaye, schhhwwwing, however, his temperament can leave a lot to be desired at times, however he does generally tend to get away with it.

    We need to trust in Pardew here. Not everyone is motivated in the same way. Some react to criticism, some need their egoes polished, and some need an arm round the shoulder. Hopefully, Pardew knows his players and what gets a reaction. Shola is a perfect example in how he reacted to the kck up the arse…..positively. To me, Pardew’s man management skills are working. You just have to look on the pitch to see how the players are pulling together, and how they all seem to gel. We don’t know what makes each player tick, so why don’t we leave Pardew to it and judge him on what reaction he produces.

    Please don’t use that maroon jersey, we’ve always somehow faired badly when we play in that jersey.

    As Toon supporter of over 50 years I have seen the good times & the bad but 6 weeks ago I actually seriously thought of not renewing my season ticket I despaired that my beloved Toon would survive this season in the Premiership but what a transformation the new boys have made the flair has returned to our team in just a few weeks we are back great times are coming to Toon
