Newcastle United are on a high at the moment, after winning six of our last eight league games and getting 19 points from the last 24, with only one defeat over that stretch of games.
Alan Pardew – winning games makes bringing players in easy
And at St. James’ Park on Thursday afternoon will be an important second game of the Christmas fixture list, when we welcome Stoke City, and we will be expected to win that game – so that means it could be difficult.
But this run of form is just what the doctor ordered before the opening of the January transfer window, because 6th place and Newcastle winning games, will be attractive to our transfer targets.
We just hope we can get a sold-out St. James’ Park this Thursday afternoon, since the last few gates have been around 3,000 fans short of capacity, for some reason.
This is what Alan Pardew said today:
“Our fans would have been in good heart when they saw the highlights of Crystal Palace because we created three or four other chances as well.”
“We could have had a fourth, so it was a good day for us.” “It is continuity in the delivery of the message. Our guys are all on message.”
“Winning games enhances the message. Therefore bringing players in becomes easy.” “That’s why Champions League teams can do it so easily.”
“It’s not so easy for us. At the minute we can because everybody is believing what we are doing.”
Certainly the Newcastle team have been very professional during this great run, and they seem very strong mentally, and our French players have been outstanding on and off the field.
And a win on Thursday would really set things up for a big game the following Sunday afternoon against Arsenal – and come to think of it – it’s been a long time since we beat Arsenal – either home or away.
Howay The Lads!!
