Pardew – We Need Commitment And Organization On Pitch

Alan Pardew gave a lot of interviews on Thursday, as the very important game at West Ham takes place tomorrow, and Newcastle need some points after taking just a solitary point from the last three games, and we’ve conceded a massive 10 goals.

Alan Pardew – important to identify and correct what went wrong against Liverpool

This is some of what he had to say to the Daily Telegraph today, whose reporter Luke Edwards has been banned from the club, and any other Telegraph reporter for that matter.

This is how the Newcastle manager explained how he had to logically identify the things that went wrong against Liverpool, and correct them in time for the game at Upton Park tomorrow:

“I think you have to discuss what the problems were against Liverpool, make sure that you give logical reasons to why you think that happened and what you need to put right,”

“The main balance we need to get is commitment on the pitch and an organisation to our game, which we didn’t have against Liverpool.”

“In terms of dealing with outside influences – which we’ve had a lot of this week – we’ve gained from that. We’ve gained a lot of experience from that.”

“I’ve had my fair share of it from clubs I’ve been at. I understand you get all sorts of accusations thrown at you. You can deny them, but it might add fuel to the flames.”

“Sometimes you don’t know whether to fight some issues or just let them ride.” “Some of them we think have been completely left-field and we have decided to fight in some areas and not fight in other areas.”

“The bottom line is when you get beaten 6-0 you are going to get criticism.”

And both Pardew and the players have received some withering criticism this week, and we have to hope we can do a lot better tomorrow, and maybe start picking up points again – we need them is we are going to stay in the Premier League next season.

A second relegation in four years is going to be very very difficult to take by the Newcastle faithful.

We thought we were building a good team. 🙁

    Exactly it BPC, alot of hot air, he’s talked the talk all year but yet to produce really. All most want is results really similar to last season and the majority of fans wished him success, now I think everything has changed for him.

    I have said it many times this fella Pardew is the tony blair of football management, a minefield of contradictions, these French lads we have are virtually all internationals, technically very good also, Pardew has not the nous or skill to play them in a more technical way, it looks like they have not a clue which way the team is going to play, John Carver as well must be making it so hard to get his point across to these lads as well, Pardew also has not got what it takes to drop his darlings, and that is a massive flaw in his character, he is not strong enough. not pnce in this the worst run of results in many years, defeats wise and 8 home defeats has he dropped one of his ?purples? he has sickned me this season with his stubbornness, just to prove he is right, well we are now second favs of the remaining teams scrapping to survive to go down, for me we are favs, wigan show more heart than we ever have this season, if he dosnt shake it up in these last few games we will be sunk, AC and Nolan will be gunning for us as will the gunners as will Remy who may just want to prove a point as well for QPR this scenario is terrifying and we as supporters do not deserve this one tiny bit

    We were trounced twice on the stot. What do you want him to say? Now we have more injuries – both LBs out. So the backline will have to be re-jigged once more. Give Pards a break.

    alan pardew never admits anything is his fault, we all know that now, it is part of the reason why we will never get better because – if he hasnt done anything wrong , how can he put it right ? however , he says ” we need commitment , organisation .
    These 2 issues are part of a managers job – to get the commitment from the players and to organise the team. by admitting we need to address these issues is admitting he is not doing his job- so it his your fault mr pardew !!!!!!

    Organisation on the field is down to Par dew, not the players, not the owner, not the fans. You are the man stopping the players playing, come on Carver stand up and be counted or go down with him. Their must be changes on the field, time is running out.

    Is the problem not a matter of the french players being to understand English, but that they just don’t get why he keeps coming up with such rubbish tactics.

    I can imagine the players listening to Pardew and thinking, to me he has just said that he wants to play 3 of us in completely the wrong position. Have I missed something in translation or this guy a moron?

    I’ll leave you to come to your own conclusion, but I know which I would choice.
