We thought Alan Pardew would make a number of changes for the game at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night, but he started the same side that beat West Brom 2-1 last Saturday, and it seems like he’s not thinking of making too many changes for tomorrow’s game at Old Trafford either.
Alan Pardew - may not make many changes tomorrow
And after having a harrowing journey back to Newcastle after the game on Wednesday night, when high winds caused some problems, Alan is hoping (like the rest of us) that Wednesday night was just one of those nights:
“Hopefully it’s a one-off slip up but as you know it’s very difficult to win Premier League games.” “In every game the opposition give you a different set of problems.”
“Man U will be different to Swansea, it might be that we need to tweak the team a little bit, and give one or two a chance, but it might not be this occasion so that’s the kind of call we debate as a staff.”
So it seems that Alan Pardew is not contemplating too many changes for tomorrow’s line-up, even though this is our third game in seven days, and there are players pleading with Alan for a game – like Hatem Ben Arfa as one example.
But tomorrow is another big test of this side, and we’ll see if our lads can come bouncing back after what was a big disappointment in South Wales.
If we can get the win tomorrow, and break our 41 year duck at Old Trafford – that would be simply tremendous – and that’s probably a huge understatement right there.
Let’s check how much wine we have in the fridge.
Howay The Lads!!
