Alan Shearer has come out positively today on the current Newcastle team, and he has told talkSPORT that Newcastle can beat any team in the Premier League and when you think we held Liverpool at home to a 2-2 with 10 men for more than half the game, and then beat Chelsea at home and Tottenham away – he’s probably right.
Alan Pardew – Newcastle on their day can beat any side
However Alan still thinks Newcastle will be inconsistent and will lose to sides we should beat – so we hope he’s wrong there, but we’ll get a decent idea of that when we play Norwich City and West Brom in the next two games at home.
Here’s some of what Alan said today:
“Two great results, a month ago everybody kept telling me we’ll find out all about them when they play Liverpool, they play Sunderland, they play Chelsea and they play Spurs.”
“Other than Sunderland, and I say other than, that was probably the biggest one, but three great results against the big boys.” “I think that is what Newcastle will do this season, they will have some great results and they’ll have some poor results.”
“You’ll look at them and say how have they gone and got beat…how have they gone there and got a result?,”
“If you put their first 11 out then they will be a match for anyone because the spine down the middle of Tim Krul, Fabricio Coloccini, Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy, who has started the season in fantastic form, there is not many better than that.”
The big challenge for Alan Pardew form now on is how to get the lads play like we have in the last three games against Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City, when we’ve looked very solid at the back, and only conceded goals in extra time against City.
Certainly is we can win out next two games at home we’ll be doing very well – thank you very much.
