The big challenge for Newcastle this Saturday is to forget about what happened at Old Trafford last Saturday, and be ready for a tough game against Southampton, who are a very good side this season, and do all that’s necessary to get a home win against a team that is just below us in the league table.
Alan Pardew – the most important game is the next one
Alan has talked about the next game in his press conference today:
“The most important game is always the next one.” “We’ve lost Yohan for the next game and that’s a blow to us.” “But the way we have played has given me confidence to put any type of game plan in front of this group.”
“And they will do it to the best of their ability.” “What we have to do is build on this now. We are in a great position.” “We have a good side coming here against my old team, and I really want to win that – trust me!”
“We will be up for that one. Let’s hope we get a couple of breaks and get a win then too.”
Of course Alan Pardew was manager of Southampton when he was sacked in August three years ago, and in a short four months he found himself manager of Newcastle United, and apart form a disastrous season last season when we were in the Europa League and in danger of relegation, he has done well at Newcastle.
A win is what we need on Saturday, and with Southampton not being one of the top six sides in England – that could be difficult.
