Alan Pardew was interviewed after the defeat at Chelsea after Jose Mourinho had talked about Pardew – who seems to be a big pal of the Newcastle manager – and Jose had said it’s better working at a crazy big club than a small one – and we suppose that was a back-handed compliment to Newcastle United.
Alan Pardew – at a crazy big club
This is some of what Alan Pardew had to say after the second 3-0 defeat in a row, this time at Stamford Bridge on Saturday:
“I love Newcastle, and I love working here.” “It’s always rocky, but the good days are fantastic. “No one can take the good days I’ve had at this football club away. “
“With the fans and everything, it’s such a great high. I’m looking forward to a high on Wednesday.”
And even with Newcastle taking only 4 points out of our last seven league games since we hammered Sroke 5-1 at home, we are still only 4 points behind Manchester United in 7th place.
The Red Devils slipped up again yesterday at home to Fulham, and were 1-0 down from a good goal from Steve Sidwell, and didn’t equalise until the 78th minute when Robin van Persie scored, after United had around 75% of the possession.
Geordie lad Michael Carrick then put the home side ahead with a good goal two minutes later, and it looked like United had won the game.
But that weak defense of theirs let in another poor goal four minutes into stoppage time, from Darren Bent, and Fulham got a point.
That broke the London side’s four game losing streak in the league, and the home fans were obviously not happy.
And we have to fancy our chances against Manchester United at home on Saturday, April 5th, and that would be a double over the Red Devils for the first time in many many decades.
Hey, that’s something to look forward too, and it would be another Newcastle high. 😀
