Newcastle have a chance to redeem themselves at Goodison Park tonight after a very poor and inept performance in our last league game at home to Hull City nine days ago, but it’s certainly not going to be easy against a strong Everton side.
Alan Pardew - we’re ready
Everton are unbeaten this season, and are playing a new brand of attractive passing football under their new manager Roberto Martinez, and they seem to be bang in form.
Alan Pardew was asked about the game in the local papers today:
“They are unbeaten this year but no matter when you go to Goodison you know you are in for a tough game.” “Whether that is under Moyes or Martinez it’s always been tough.”
“But it’s a game we are looking forward to – a Monday night game under floodlights – and we’re ready for it.” : “It is a tough game. But the weekend showed that the Premier League is a lot more even this season.”
“Anybody can beat anybody.”
“We never take our fans for granted but we’re grateful for them, especially during a tough game.” “They realise that it will be tough too.” “We got a point and a good performance last season, and we want that again this time.”
There was a scare yesterday that both Coloccini and Remy are doubtful for this game, but we have to hope that both can make the game, and then we’ll have our strongest side out tonight.
But even if they both cannot play Mike Williamson can come in for Colo, and Yoan Gouffran for Remy, and we’ll still start a good team and have a strong bench.
Newcastle need to give a very good account of themselves tonight, and get something out of this game.
