Pardew Bemoans Another injury – We’ll Be OK In Final 13 Games


Newcastle were easily beaten again today, this time 3-0 at Chelsea, but Alan Pardew has talked after the game about all the injuries we have at the moment to players like Coloccini, Tiote, Gouffran, and of course Loic Remy is suspended and Yohan Cabaye is gone.

Alan Pardew – we’ll be OK for Aston Villa game

This is what Alan said after the game today:

“I do think that most of the recent results have been impacted by injuries we have sustained.” “We took another one today in Mathieu Debuchy, he’s a big player for us.”

“We have Papiss out, Loic out, Cheick, Coloccini – we need those players back.” “Especially games at this level.” “Although I’m saying Sammy Ameobi and Paul Dummett well, you have to understand the level we are playing at.”

“When the intensity is out there like it is today it is a really tough call to play in those games, you need your better players.” “I’d like to think that Tottenham is a game where we can get a strong result then after that our best players might come back to us.”

“In the last 13 games we can be strong, then in the summer we have work to do.”  “I thought in the first half we played well with the players we had available.”  “We had a fantastic chance at 1-0 to throw real confusion into the game.”

“We missed a chance with Sissoko and they went straight up the other end and they got the second.”  “They are a good team.”  “Their work-rate was phenomenal I thought.”  “They are a very good team with the technical ability that they have.”

“I have to say coming out of the game we had a few positives ourselves.”  “I thought Sammy Ameobi, Paul Dummett and in particular Luuk De Jong gave performances that in the next 13 games will be important for us.”

“I was disappointed with the penalty decision in terms of my player.” “I don’t know why he’s grabbed him in that manner.” “Mapou is scratching his head as to why he got himself in that position.” “But it was a real soft goal.”

“I have been to many, many games in this stadium.” “And a goal can change the atmosphere here quite quickly.”

We think Alan means the final 12 games of the season starting against Aston Villa at home two weeks tomorrow, because on Wednesday we’ll probably only have Yoan Gouffran back against Spurs, and of course Debuchy will be missing that game.

So 10 days rest should hopefully see Colo, Tiote and Debuchy fit for the game against Villa, and Loic Remy will also be back after his three match suspension.

Alan Pardew is under some pressure at Newcastle at the moment,  with six defeats in the last eight games in all competitions, and he must turn this thing around, once he gets his top players back playing again.

What do you think?

    I thought Sammy Ameobi, Paul Dummett and in particular Luuk De Jong gave performances that in the next 13 games will be important for us.

    i think this part is a sign that dummett and sammy could well be now in part of the main team as we have little to play for, it does mind leave me wondering how he will fit them both as when gouffran and remy returns that is his main positions gone.

    Hey don’t worry about it, we sold our most important player and didn’t replace so we’ll inevitably be worse the rest of the season but hey, who cares? We won’t be relegated and as long as we don’t waste any money to actually improve the squad we should make a good load of cash out of this mediocrity!

    mag if you can only use small words and short sentances just don’t both replying to me at all.

    if i was an agitators i would not have been relaxed when having a chat with manxpie and roblee.

    agitators are the who get bored of their broken record of the same excuse week in week out so chose to wind other up.

    so i’ll just ignore you catchy .

    Just a thought,but if Mashley is thinking of selling up maybe he is leaving the cash in the club.
    Maybe he is making the books very favorable for someone to buy and spend mega loads on players but still stay within the fair play rules.
    All it would mean is he would ask more for the club so it covers his “debt”but leaving all the money he has trousered in the clubs accounts.

    Yes is best case but it would make the club more attractive to some rich Russian wouldnt it.

    i’m tried to think like mag wants me to think so just thought i could bring up the draw pelegrini had because if the anti pardew crew don’t like pardew using injuries as excuses well pellegrini can’t use aguero as an excuse and plus he didn’t beat sunderland in the league cup.

    Swansea had no real forward line when they comfortably beat us.

    Teams get injuries, Alan. Deal with it.

    You’ve no cups or Europe to contend with like other teams. No team can have their best players fit every week.

    This isn’t just about the Chelsea game, it is over a longer period. Chelsea can beat anyone.

    Our longer shooters are out, then the goals dry up. Surprised? Nope.

    oh forgods sakes daztoon

    ok i’ll put it very simply for you for the third time!!

    TODAY we had an attacking team AND that was when i thought we had santon on the right and sammi on the left!

    but that wasn’t the case!

    we had sammi
    we had arfa
    thats our wingers!!

    where is the options too change that!!??

    we had santon who is a lb by trade in cdm
    we had anita who is a dm
    we had sisko who is a cm in the hole but has been all season a RW

    so why is that daztoon why do we have arfa and sammi as our only wingers!!????

    why have we got a cm out wide!!!!!!!!!!????/

    what are pardews other options!!???

    quite simple lad??

    We should give Tiote, and Debuchy a months rest saying as they will be playing in the World Cup. Otherwise he’ll be tired next season. I’d also give Santon a month off and play Haidara or Dummet.

    This is the perfect time to give Sammy/ Dummet/ Bigi/ Armstrong a real run in the team. Pardew lets them rot & thinks 5 minutes here and there is enough to develop them.

    I think he’s afraid to try youths as usually he’s one defeat away from ‘catastrophe.’
