Pardew – It’s Not Good To Lose To Sunderland 3-0 At Home

Alan Pardew gave his press conference this afternoon for the Liverpool game on Saturday, and one of the things he did mention was how good Coloccini was looking, after just two days of training, although the manager will not start the Argentine on Saturday – and the captain will probably be on the bench.

Alan Pardew – at his press conference

It seems from what Alan said that the lads really want to get the points in the bag to ensure Newcastle are safe, and then next season should be a lot different – and an awful lot better – hopefully.

And the manager was asked if the hurt from the Sunderland loss had been buried yet, and he gave this interesting answer:

“No, because I think it’s important you understand that hurt, to our fans.” “It was one game as I’ve said before, some of the journalism that has gone on since has been slightly heavy-handed.”

“But you have to expect that in this area – this is a big club.””It’s not good to lose to your rivals 3-0 at home, so I’m making sure they feel that pain and they understand it, and I think they do.”

“I don’t think patience is the word because I think everybody was frustrated with that performance.” “But I thought there were good reasons for it.” “To be honest I just want to move on, it’s done, there’s nothing we can do about it.”

“There’s no point in going over it, but the hurt will go on,  and I’ll make sure we hurt until the next fixture with them next year.”

Alan also talked about making sure we had a big enough squad for next season, and that we have to have less injuries than we’ve had this season – but we wonder if they will investigate just how we have suffered so many injuries in training this season.

It’s worth a look to see if something is being done in training that adds to these injuries – and Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias may even ask for such an investigation.

    Repost for Saz:

    Here’s some more stats I posted before:

    Michael Laudrup :

    Notable Clubs – Bronby, Lazio, Juventus, Barca, Real Madrid, Ajax

    International – 104 games 37 goals playing in World Cup and European championships

    Clubs managed – Bronby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow, Mallorca and Swanea (managed in Denmark, Spanish, Russia and England).

    Awards as player & manager – Danish player of the year (multiple times), Danish league winner (multiple times), Danish Super cup, Serie A winner, La liga winner (multiple times), champions Leauge winner (equivalent), Uefa super cup, copa del rey, Eirdivise championship, Leauge cup, (individual rewards from fa’s, players associations or journalist unknown).

    Alan Pardew:

    Notable clubs – crystal palace, charlton and reading

    International – 0 games or goals

    Clubs managed – Reading, West Ham, Charlton, Southampton, Newcastle

    Awards as player and manager – league 1 play off winner (equivalent), championship play of winner, Johnstone Paint trophy winner, Lma manager of the year, PL manager of the year.

    Those last 2 see, impressive but this indicates the difference between a person who thinks he’s a winner and an actual winner.

    If the results go our way we could be safe by the end of the weekend.
    Spurs beat Wigan
    We beat the Bindippers and
    The Mackems beat Villa

    Wigan would need 3 wins and a draw out of 4 games
    Villa would need 2 wins and a draw out of 3
    And they play each other last game of the season.

    And thats with us losing our last three games

    Managerial career stats:

    Laudrup win % = 46.36%

    Pardew win % = 42.48 %

    Pardew has managed in the lower leagues. Laudrup has managed in the top leagues of 4 countries.

    In other news, man has actually landed on the moon. So is Alan changing his idea that the fans have been overreacting to the defeat?

    Ha ha ha I think Brendan R should just pack in now I dunno what he is talking about, wishing he had more players with suarez’s attitude! A team of cannibals? Whats he on about punishing the player rather than the offence? Who did the gnashing then? Brendan man, shut up.

    You too, Belfast.

    Love how we keep getting in to the Laudrup debate 🙂

    Shall we settle it with Laudrup had a much better playing career, which in theory has no bearing whatsoever on how good a manager he would be, other than that, he plays a better style?

    Statistically, they’re not a million miles off each other tbh, it can be argued Pardew has managed in the lower leagues, it can be argued Laudrup has worked in lesser quality leagues. You’d need to look in to how their teams compared with the rest of the league at that time to start drawing any real comparisons…at the end of the day it comes down to style, no?

    Stats on transfermarkt and wiki are different. Most of his titles have been from his playing career. Their is no doubt that he was they better player.

    Managing they aren’t that much of difference if you take away that he managed one of top teams in danish league getting 57 % according to wikipedia.

    Laudrup style of play is more attractive but might so much more effective.

    How many games has Laudrup won in the premiership this season 10
    How many games has Pardew won in the premiership this season 10

    Might of been 9 wins for Laudrup and 11 for Pardew if we had taken our chances at Swansea

    See how he does next season with a limited squad and Europe

    You lobbying for Laudrup to replace Pardew? Looking af the win %ages, Laudrup’s not much better than Pardew.

    Lay off man, try being positive for a while. You never know, you might even smile!
