We Can Transform Our Season – Newcastle Fans Can Lift Us

After two defeats in a row against Sunderland and Manchester City, Newcastle now have the unenviable task of going up against an in-form Chelsea side, who Jose Mourinho has playing very well at the moment.

Alan Pardew – we can transform our season

Alan held his press conference this afternoon, and he was asked about the Chelsea game:

“It can transform your season, a win against Chelsea or Spurs, and that’s what we’ve got to look for. It is frustrating because it’s difficult when there’s such emotion riding after the Sunderland game, and I understand that.”

“But we are hurt as well, and I hope our fans give us a lift on Saturday.” “They did last night and we responded to that, and they need to be in really, really good voice for us to have a chance against Chelsea.”

“I think we’ve got an even chance against Chelsea, I genuinely do, as well as they are playing, because I think my team are playing well. But you need those breaks and things to go your way, and the first goal will be important in this fixture.”

“To beat one of the top teams – and let’s be honest, Chelsea are one of those, and we’ve got Spurs after that, who are in great form as well – you need to be at your very best.”

“For us, with the quality we’ve got, we could have perhaps three good performances, but we need eight outstanding, for sure, so that’s what we’ve got to hope we get.”

Pardew is no doubt under pressure now from his critics, and those voices will only increase if we are beaten by Chelsea on Saturday.

But the Newcastle manager is a tough character, who doesn’t bow to all the heavy criticism he gets as Newcastle manager, so for the good of the club it would be terrific if we can get a result on Saturday.

But at the very least, we hope Newcastle can put in another strong performance, as we did last night at Manchester City, but we must take our chances when we get them.

The Newcastle fans were just great against City, and we’re sure they’ll be just as good against Chelsea, in a game we won 3-2 last season, and it was one of our biggest and most dramatic wins of the season.

And Tottenham have not been too good at White Hart Lane this season, so we must stand a decent chance in our next game, if we cannot get anything out of Chelsea.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    I’m not sure where you get the “IF” we lose to Chelski from. The way we are playing, the shortage of back-up players in key areas, the complete indifference from the owner, it’s much more likely, unfortunately, to be By How Many do we lose to Chelski.

    We played our best game of the season yesterday and it simply wasnt good enough – City’s bench cost more than our squad, it was men v boys.

    The Illustrious Owner (Idiot in Charge) needs to come clean with his true intentions for our club. Does he have any ambition whatsoever? Is mid-table mediocrity really his ambition for NUFC? It surely cannot carry on the way it is. Please God no.

    Pardew is a big time charlie.

    He doesn’t know what it takes to be successful he’s never been won anything in his career as a player or manager bar the JPT with southampton.

    This sums up his managerial career.

    Reading – First job gets them promoted and has them getting results but dumps them as soon as West ham started sniffing around. Didn’t finish what he started at Reading and left.

    West Ham – Sacked After getting 14 Points from a possible 51. 10 Goals in 17 Games. Would of been relegated had Curbishley not saved them in the end.

    Charlton – Got the Charlton gig 2 weeks after getting sacked by west ham. Couldnt save them from relegation, couldnt get them promoted then eventually got the relegated again although he got sacked half way through the last season.

    Southampton – Won the JPT then got sacked.

    Look back at all that what the hell made Mike Ashley think this was the man who can bring something to Newcastle. During his time with us we’ve broken records for our poor play. Still 2 years since we last scored from a corner in the league? Yea he got us it into Europe but so have many before him.
    I don’t want him at the club any longer he’s too negative and brings everyone down around him.
    He stifles the potential of players because we have to play HIS way not the way which suits the players.

    Everybody knows that Pards is a walking dead man. A few more bad results and he will go. Ashers would have got rid last season but balked at the cost of another stupid decision … an 8 year contract. I think Pards will be sacked after the Spurs game. about 8 months too late.

    Interesting comments Mr Pardew!!!!
    YOU ARE HURTING and want us to give you and the team a lift?
    Beggars belief and saying how important the first goal is almost say’s if they score first that’s it, damage limitation.
    I thought you were not supported when the owner decided to keep you in post, but you backed him and said we have a stronger squad than that of the start of last season.
    I do think we have some very good players but I also think you have gone as far as you can go now.
    If your team talks and tactics are the same as the weekly press conferences you give us, then I feel there is little else you can offer.
    This will not hurt you, you have been sacked many times before, but it sure is hurting many of us week in week out, when you just throw us bread crumbs to nibble on.
    We deserve no better than any other club supporters, but I think we do deserve to have hope and a real drive to want to win.

    Careful what you wish for lads. I’d rather have AP any day of the season that JFK. Take the blinkers off. The Toon can be immense when the players make the effort – Liverpool and Man City are two vivid examples.
