Newcastle got a win with just 30 seconds to go in added time this afternoon, but based on our second half display we probably just about the deserved the win, which was the first one in five games for the Magpies, and only the second win in the last ten games – so we were really due a win – that’s for sure.
Loic Remy – hot property in the summer
It was simply a huge win for Newcastle, and yes we were probably a little bit lucky to get all 3 points – but after what’s happened this year – we’ll take it – thank you very much.
This is what Alan Pardew said after the game today:
“I was a little happier after Loic’s goal went in than I was before,” “It was a strange game and I was beginning to wonder, but we are on 40 points now and I think we’ve had a decent season.”
“We’ve not been very good at home since beating Stoke on Boxing Day but the win will settle us down The players can be a little bit calmer now and show more composure.”
“Technically I gave us six out of ten but I thought Loic was the one player with the composure to score that goal,” “He was the best player on the pitch. The game seemed a little bit slower when he was on the ball, not as frantic.”
“Like Johan Cruyff, high-class players like him can slow a game down. He’s going to be hot property this summer.”
That last comment suggests that Alan knows he will not be joining Newcastle on a permanent basis this summer.
It’s just so sad that Newcastle don’t have the ambition we once had, when Bobby Robson and Kevin Keegan managed the club and we were a top four club in England, and then we would have a chance to get Remy in permanently – and he would want to sign for us.
That’s not the case today.
