If Newcastle can get a win on Saturday at home, to Fulham then we will have made a decent start to the Premier League season, after not looking too great in our first two league games, but in the second half last night Newcastle showed they are a fit team and raised their game to beat the minnows of Morecambe, who still did their club proud last night.
Alan Pardew – stress is starting to show on Alan’s face

There were some decent performances for m some of the youngsters and Curtis Good looked solid in his very first game, and the 20 year-old looks to have a promising future at Newcastle, and he seems to be learning quickly.
And we noticed that Alan Pardew was looking juts a little stressed out, especially in that first half, but he’s had a lot on his plate in the first couple of weeks of this season.
The Newcastle manager was pleased with some of the performances of his players last night, and had this to say immediately after the game:
“I have just said to the players in there, the club owes a big thank you to Gael Bigirimana and Dan Gosling and Curtis Good for getting us a win because it is going to raise everyone’s spirits in the first team.
“It has taken a little bit of pressure off them, the first goals, the first win.” “Let’s hope on Saturday we get a win against Fulham and then you would have to say that is a start we can accept because four points out of those three games is OK.”
“However, we have to win on Saturday and that is what we are going to try to do.”
The star of the game last night for Newcastle was definitely Sammy Ameobi, and the 21 year-old is starting to become more consistent and of course he’s in the England U21 side these days and jinked his way down the wing last night, and Sammy, who stands just short of 6’5″ tall, and he managed to score the second goal, after combining with his brother right at the death.
In fact surely Sammy deserves a start against Fulham on Saturday to give us some creativity right from the start – Ben Arfa on the right wing and Sammy on the left wing would pose some problems for Fulham on Saturday.
We hope Ben Arfa on the right wing and Sammy on the left wing would pose some problems for Fulham on Saturday.
