Newcastle have had their best start to the first 17 league games of the season since the great Sir Bobby Robson was managing the club, and the Geordie spirits on Tyneside are soaring, as we may even have a very good side again.
Alan Pardew – not many fans moaning about Newcastle’s league position
This is what Alan Pardew has said today in the local papers as he prepares his side for the important game at home against Stoke City this afternoon, as he seems happy enough that the Magpies are just below the radar screen right now:
“We’re not fully part of it, which is great.” “We don’t mind that. We go along under a radar a little bit.” “But sitting on 30 points, and above Man United, I don’t think any Newcastle fan would moan about that.”
“It’s been a terrific season so far.” “Like all seasons, you’re going to have the odd day where it doesn’t go well – we’ve had a few of those – but not many.”
“If we can keep those down, we’ve got a great chance of doing something special.” “It’s fairly obvious that we’re going really well.” “We just need to try to keep our feet on the ground and stay with that pack if we can.” “
It’s always about setting up the next game.” “We’re now looking to beat Stoke to set up the Arsenal game. We haven’t looked further than that.”
We’re sure there are some fans who still moan about Alan Pardew as manager, and definitely some who still moan about owner Mike Ashley owning the club, and most of that is of his own making, if truth be told.
But we suppose there will not be too many of those protest marches in Newcastle any time soon, as long as we stay high up in the league table.
But we could be wrong on that too.
Howay The Lads!!
