Pardew Reveals Big Transfer Funds Available In Summer

Manager Alan Pardew and the rest of the coaches at Newcastle did a little jig after Loic Remy’s great winning goal yesterday, and it just showed what tremendous pressure they had been under at Newcastle.

But the win is just exactly what we need, even if it was a little fortuitous, but Loic Remy also knew the magnitude of his goal, and he whipped off his shirt, jumped on top of the sidings and saluted the crowd.

It was everything Newcastle fans wanted to see – drama indeed as Newcastle got a win, and in such dramatic fashion too.

And it was good news for Newcastle fans when Alan talked after the game about having money to spend in the summer transfer market, since we’ve spent very little in the last two transfer windows, bringing in only two strikers in on loan.

This is what the manager said to talkSPORT:

“We can build on this win now and the way we need to build is by finishing strongly and then we can go into the summer and strengthen,”

“We all know as much as we haven’t spent any money in the last 18 months, we have got a nice little kitty there and we’ve got to make good use of it. If we make good use of it we can come back stronger next year.”

Newcastle will want to sign Loic Remy permanently, but in truth we have no chance of that – unless of course Remy has seen what tremendous  fans and support there exists on Tyneside – and it’s not  too bad  a place at all to play your football.

Over 50,000 were there yesterday, to give a side who had just one win in their  last nine games their full support.

Not many clubs can boast that kind of loyalty and it all paid off yesterday,  and emotions were raw indeed when Loic scored.

We don’t think the French striker will have too many better moments in his career than yesterday, after scoring a goal.

It has lifted the spirits of Newcastle fans and now the players must push on and show they are not too bad a side, even without Yohan Cabaye.

And this upcoming transfer window is likely to be one of the biggest ever, since Mike Ashley bought the club in the summer of 2007.

Howay The Lads!!

    Wishful thinking on remy id say. He is too good for mid table mediocrity.

    Yesterdays last min winner coild be a turning point in our season
    It might mean more positive football from now on. This is also probably wishful thinking 😀

    Pards came out and said Everton are praised for having best season in years whilst we’re on the verge of disaster but only 5 points behind them – good observation on motd2 – basically Everton are contesting every game and are consistent whereas we win 5 lose 5 and are totally all over the place and the only consistency we have is our inconsistency even in the same game !
    Not sure why people expect the fans to be any different – we just follow the teams rollercoaster

    “..we have got a nice little kitty there..”
    A couple of loan signings then, one more than last summer.

    I don’t believe it before I see it. This summer will be extremely important. This is Mashleys last chance.

    Hopefully we spend the money and we also spend it well, that’s the key.

    Arsenal have claimed to have money for years and not spent any until this season.

    That’s the big issue with his team…some time he has us playing very well, other times we look hopeless all over the pitch.

    Well I don’t know about fortuitous I thought we had a goal or two in us at the end of that game, they were settling for the bore draw by mid second half and we’ll dug in. The goal was late but not surprising. I would take these displays over the see-sawing we normally see. I still think those who said we played terribly yesterday are underestimating villa. The bottom clubs,are the kind we normally do very poorly against, at least that’s a trend we bucked yesterday.

    We still have a think squad though. If we don’t see major changes this summer I think the best Pards can muster will be another scintillating relegation scrap.

    Talking to some people who went to the game yesterday… they said it was a good second half. This backs up what mimdshaft has just said about inconsistency within the same game. We have been like this for years though

    Everton deserved a point at Chelsea , they did not just sit and contain

    yesterday we were lucky to get the 3 points when it should have been 1

    that’s called luck

    so right now it of easily been 7 points

    and I’m willing to put a bet on with you right now , Everton will finish this season at least 10 points ahead of us

    The guy who sits behind me at the match reckons “the deal is done for Ashley to sell to the American” – who I assumed was Vince Mcmahon. Also Pardew was told to play Cisse to put him in the shop window for selling to the Russians. I personally thought this was b*ll*cks but anybody heard anything similar?

    To say I was delighted with Remy’s winner yesterday is well an understatement as I had an 8 team accumulator resting on a TOON win and with £985 winnings I have to say sorry to the bloke I pushed over after jumping out of my seat to applaud Remy. A great financial benefit however I don’t think my heart could take much more excitement. HWTL.

    Busiest transfer window? I’ll believe it when I see it. Unless you count players leaving the club.

    I don’t know how Catchy can be bothered getting out of bed in the morning, such is your negativity. You say we were lucky to get 3 points conveniently forgetting that we might also have won by 3 or more if good chances had been converted. That’s football but I would say that we limited Villa to few real chances despite them looking very dangerous in the first half. Very little has been said about the penalty claim either (nothing on MoD) but it looked pretty clear to me as the defender certainly moved his hand to the ball. We have been devoid of much luck recently and hopefully that will change. What is pretty obvious to most who can see the bigger picture is that negativity and nervousness on the terraces quickly transfers itself to the players. It’s a 2 way street though. I thought we started ok yesterday (5-10 mins) and the crowd were in good voice but when the crowd nervously quieted down as Villa settled, the doubts also returned on the pitch – until Willos interception when the mood changed and we became a different team all over the park. Remy scored the goal but the crowd made the assist.

    They fcuking should have signed Remy up from day one. Harry siad he wanted his 8 millon back for Remy why the fcuk wasnt it done? now its 16million or 20 what a load of idiots bet the rest of the league are laughing at us how we didnt tie this one up. As for a small kitty no is going to do bisness b4 the WC so that leaves us into late July/Aug running around throwing in bids of 5million pound for players when the selling clubs want 10 or the agents want to much money from the deal and we get no one in or to coin the phase of AP over the line blah, blah, blah bullshit bullshit dont expect anything but failure from this lot and you wont be surprised.

    A kitty says it all. You wouldn’t hear mourinho talk about a “kitty” at Chelsea. It’s like Ashley had a little black box on his desk labeled signings. I don’t expect 50 million pound signings… Not even 20 mill!!! But come on….I can’t take any more loans and selling of our better players.

    Summer signings. Well, we’ve heard it all before haven’t we.
    How many times have we waited in anticipation throughout Buck luck transfer windows only to be sorely disappointed.
    And buck lick. How is this Ashley’s ;ast chance?
    He owns the club, he will do what he wants. Or have you a few billion up your sleeve?
