Any more performances like last night’s and Alan Pardew’s job has to be on the line and the Newcastle manager knows that and seems determined to put things right – and quickly – at Newcastle.
Alan Pardew – orders extra training for players
And there’s no day off for Newcastle players today as they report back to training at 9;45 today.
And the manager reckons that only Mathieu Debuchy and Paul Dummett came out of the game with any credit.
And certainly after another disastrous performance from Italian Davide Santon at left back in the first half – he was pulled at half time for the second time in three games – it’s time to give local lad Paul Dummett a run in the side.
This is what a furious Alan Pardew said to the press today:
‘We’re back in at 9.45am today.” ‘I don’t have to stand there in my 150th game and watch a performance like that.”
“I don’t care about how good Tottenham were, it doesn’t interest me.” “Tottenham were good, but my team has to be better than that. I am not going to go into any more detail than that.”
The players were booed off the field by their fans last night – and it’s a reaction to a pitiful performance that they richly deserved.
And the fans will be venting today and for the next few days – to get yet another humiliation out of their system. 🙁
But what’s also needed at Newcastle, is for the manager and players to put things right, and come the Aston Villa home game a week on Sunday, we are hoping the fans will be fully supportive of the team (forget the regime), as the club tries to turn around this disastrous situation.
But strong leadership is now required from the manager and some of his senior players at the club.
