Alan Pardew has criticized Newcastle journalists in the past, for going to extremes and when Newcastle win there’s talk about Champions League – see the last article - and all that stuff, and when we lose there’s talk about relegation, but that’s the way it’s always been at Newcastle United, and in truth it’s all to do with passion.
Alan Pardew – don’t you look too far ahead
Of course I am completely immune to these criticisms of Alan Pardew, because nobody in their right mind would ever call me a journalist – yes I get called other things – but never a journalist.
Alan had talked to Sky Sports and had said this after the win against Norwich City:
“We’re a good club and we’re going in the right direction and the most important thing is that we’re winning games.” “We don’t really want to look too far ahead.”
“But we’ve got everyone fit and I had some really good options on the bench on Saturday.” “I think in the second half we didn’t have the energy that I would have liked, but the most important objective today was the win.”
We suppose it is important not to get too carried away with things and look too far ahead, so let’s just say after the Sunderland loss Newcastle have played four games and won three, and played extremely well.
And we were even a bit unlucky against Manchester City in that League Cup defeat, that went to extra time.
And if we keep playing like we have done over the last few weeks, we could even be in a very high position come Christmas.
Whoops – there I go again – Pardew will be after me if I’m not careful. – he may even think I’m a journalist.
