Newcastle still don’t seem to have any injuries coming out of the Christmas games, although a number of our players probably need a break after playing three games since December 21st, and we have two more coming up in the next five days.
Alan Pardew – could rest some players
After the disappointing Arsenal loss, Newcastle have a chance to get back on the wining trail at the Hawthorns tomorrow, and while we weren’t too upset at losing against the Gunners – we were just unlucky and we didn’t get the breaks and that happens sometimes – the failure to pick up maximum points tomorrow would be a blow.
This is what Alan Pardew has said about the game tomorrow:
“West Brom is an important game. If somebody had offered me three points from the two games I would have taken them.” “It is a difficult place to go.”
“They are a good side and I have great respect for Steve Clarke and Kevin Keen who were there.” “It is a shame I won’t be facing them on the touch-line.”
“But we look forward to what will be a difficult game.”
All games are difficult in the Premier League, and especially at this time of year when PL clubs are playing five games in a short two weeks, while other European Leagues are taking a Christmas break – no wonder English teams are finding European competition to be difficult these days
We hope to see Newcastle start on the front foot at West Brom tomorrow, in a game we should win, and it would be a great way to end the four game stretch over Christmas, if we can indeed get the win.
Howay The Lads!!
