It’s not often that a Premier League club wins three games in a row this season in the league, and also has a completely free bill of health, with not one player injured, but that’s the situation at Newcastle at the moment, before we face a tough West Brom side at St. James’ Park tomorrow.
Alan Pardew – upbeat at press conference
And with all the players fit and in training this week, Alan Pardew had this to say in his press conference yesterday:
“On Tuesday we probably had the best day’s training that I’ve ever had here, if I’m honest, in terms of quality and numbers, and I could pick two teams at the minute .”
“And as you say last year it was very very difficult to select a side that I felt was strong enough to represent the team.” “But as we set off in December we’re in great shape, and I cannot thank the players enough for their application and getting themselves into top shape.”
Alan Pardew was down to earth throughout his press conference yesterday, and he mentioned that he had calls about the Champions League this week, but he said that was just nonsense, because we are nowhere near qualifying, with only 12 games played.
But if he got calls say in April about that same topic (because Newcastle were still in contention), he would be pleased to answer them.
The manager is obviously trying to keep the players’ feet firmly on the ground, after three wins in a row, and he admits tomorrow’s game will be a tough one, as they usually are against West Brom, and he seems to greatly respect the West Brom squad.
But another win tomorrow, and Newcastle fans will be flying even higher. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
