A win against Stoke City tomorrow and Newcastle fans will be able to relax a little and look forward toi what could be a great game against Anzhi Makhachkala at St. James’ Park where a win will take us through to the Europa League quarter finals for the first time since 2004.
Alan Pardew – vows to keep that beard – oh no!
And Alan Pardew will be working with the squad today to prepare them for tomorrow’s vital game, where the result is more important that how we play – we simply must get all 3 points.
And Alan Pardew, fresh from the “success” in Moscow, had this to say about tomorrow’s game:
“The game tomorrow is at the uppermost of my thoughts.” “We need to get a win tomorrow to really set up Anzhi on Thursday night“ “And we don’t want to be going to Wigan having not won against Stoke.”
Newcastle easily won last year’s home game against Stoke by 3-0, and that same score tomorrow will see Newcastle go above Stoke in the league table, and since Stroke are currently in 11th place,that could elevate us in the league table by quite a few places.
A win tomorrow and we;ll be in really good shape – and all we have to do then is to hammer Anzhi on Thursday night.
But then we’ll have to beat Wigan Athletic next Sunday at the DW Stadium.
