The Manager Has Been Brilliant – It’s All About Newcastle

Paul Dummett should have recovered from his hamstring injury for our game next Saturday against Norwich City at home, and he should be available for selection.

Paul Dummett – after scoring against Liverpool

But with Davide Santon in such good form, probably because he’s being pushed by the lad from Kenton, Paul will probably end up on the bench, but he could still break through to the first team this season, and he’s always played well when he’s worn the black and white shirt.

Paul is rightly forgetting about any International ambitions at the moment, and just concentrating on trying to become a first team regular.

This is what he has said today on the local press:

“It was a great experience to be training alongside Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale,” “The people at Wales told me to enjoy the experience and go away and keep working hard.”

“But for me it is all about what happens at Newcastle. We have had some good results so we must keep that going.” “I just need to concentrate on doing well for Newcastle,”

“That is my main priority.” “I came back here in the pre-season and the manager rewarded me with my chance.” “It’s been a dream come true but I need to keep working.”

“The manager gave me my chance. He’s been brilliant.” “I just want to reward him with good performances.”

There’s a chance Paul could play next Saturday if Davide Santon is moved to right back, but we think Colo will come into central defense,  and Yanga-Mbiwa will move to fill in at right back for Mathieu Debuchy. who is suspended for this game.

And Mathieu had another good game for France last night, in their disappointing 2-0 defeat in the Ukraine, and the Newcastle man now seems to be the first choice for France at right back.

And if Newcastle do decide to sell Davide Santon in January or in the summer,  back to an Italian club, it will be in part because of Alan Pardew’s belief in the local 22 year-old youngster – who has just signed a six-year deal at Newcastle.

And now as Paul seems to know – he must keep his head down, listen to the manager and work like hell in training.

And if he does that, he could have a great career ahead of him at his local club.

We hope so. 😀

    Depending on results depends on what Press reports Pardew gets?

    There are some, on here who despise the bloke, i am not one of them, however but his tactics for the last two games have been spot on.
    But, it will only take one home loss to either Norwich or WBA to have all the Doom-merchants coming on here again with their Hate comments and predictions of relegation etc,etc,etc, and Bla,bla,bla bla!

    I sometimes wish that the Manager just learned to keep his gob shut, even after a game! Because in some peoples minds, he just can never Win, whatever the score is?

    if the right offer comes in – World Cup or no
    World Cup for France – our best players would
    consider it!

    …everything else is just subjective
    argumentation 😉

    Some see it one way and
    others see it another way!
    Both points are valid!

    New expat – you are spot on. Any defeat has to be down to not the players, the opposition, or even bad luck (Sunderland) but the manager’s incompetence in every (any) area, whereas any victory is exactly the opposite -according to those who will twist anything he says into something to fit their agenda. Some blogs I won’t even visit any more – and they call themselves supporters???

    I like Dummett but I think Haidara has him for pace and will ultimately be Newcastle LB.
