It’s been one of the most open seasons so far in the Premier League with some of the top teams – like Manchester United as one example – losing points regularly, and it’s Arsenal who are making the pace this season four points ahead of Chelsea after 14 games played.
Alan Pardew – others have caught up
Alan Pardew has said the other teams have caught up with the top teams:
“There’s not so much fear as there was to play the top teams. “I think the tactical awareness of the rival managers and coaching has got better.”
“You can always end up getting a proper drubbing, but most teams are really trying to have a go, and that makes for great viewing and great games.”
“And first and foremost, being manager of Manchester United is a great job and David has represented it with great honor and respect so far.”
“But it was obviously going to be difficult for him to follow someone like Sir Alex Ferguson and the aura that the man had.” “He’s finding his feet and that’s all he’s trying to do, and I think he’s doing a reasonable job.”
“They can still win the league and trophies this season. It’s a long way back for them but they’ve proved over the years that they’re a team who improves as the season goes on.”
Newcastle are coming off a first defeat in five games after losing at Swansea on Wednesday night, after winning four games in a row.
So it’s a big test for the lads, and we hope they can make a game of it tomorrow at Old Trafford, and if Newcastle can hit their top form tomorrow – anything can happen.
