Pardew – Newcastle Ready For This Game Tonight

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.

What do you think?

    I remember AP saying ‘we’re ready’ when we played our first game this season against man city . With 2 players doubtful , are we ready ? 2-0 Everton . Martinez is a bit too smart for AP .

    Hate is a very strong word. Endless Frustration is nearer the mark.

    Yes we played very well first half and should have been heading for a 4-0 or similar. The crowd were up for it, the right team and formation had been selected, but some joke marking gifted Hull their second equaliser and all momentum shifted as it so often does with us when we just try to hold on.

    Either Pardew should embrace 433 and let the leash off even if the opposition equalise. An analogy I can think of is when walking your dogs and you see another dog approach we seem to give off this victim scent and encourage the other dog to attack.

    Repeat Post

    What’s to be done about the online comments on here?
    It was only a few years ago when away from home at Uni that I would value posts and responses from people who knew more and understood better.

    With so many, choosing not to contribute thoughts of their own, were left with so much chaff clogging the whole medium. Talking to many toon fans home and away they would like a return to the halcyon days of informed opinion and an absence of barbarian incursions masquerading as facts. Less bullyboys and more football fans.

    Straw polls undertaken in the No 9, suggest that many just don’t have huge enthusiasm for the quality of what appears beneath the articles. This despite the vast majority welcoming being able to respond online to critics, admirers or interrogators if they so wish. As it used to be.

    What they don’t want is tedious repetition, obvious inaccuracy and babble. Before an extended spate of the aforementioned I was an enthusiast for total liberty of expression. Surely few of us in our daily lives do not, in private conversation, encounter much enthusiasm for the quality of what appears as comments. Some fellow fans affect not to read them at all and know longer post.
    It used to be worth the effort. That was before so much bile. There are still many good contributors but just not so many and far too many providing clueless drivel.

    A quality poster- missing off here- once reminded me that there was a place for everyone . He was right but I would say not to the exclusion of the crème de la crème.

    Well I think its time the Newcastle fans started shouting for the team. The support at the last to home games has been appalling, easily drowned out by the Hull and Leeds fans. So come on away fans GET BEHIND THE TEAM!

    Talking of the atmosphere, I was involved back in the mid 90s of a campaign to bring in a singing section. I am 54 years of age but when I come over for the games I always make a point to get a seat where there is going to be some “action”. The Level 7 idea was good but it seems the Gallowgate corner has become the focal point nowadays. Why don’t the fans join Celtic in their proposition to have standing areas behind both goals? Surely clubs must realize the importance of loud, vociferous support? In the meantime stop whining and sing your hearts out for the lads…………
