Alan Pardew was mercilessly criticized by Newcastle fans at the home game against Cardiff today, as was owner Mike Ashley, but at least we finally won a game and the final score was a good one at 3-0, although the final result looked like we won the game rather easily, which we didn’t, and Newcastle struggled badly in the second half.
Alan Pardew signs autographs before the game
The good feeling didn’t last long
This is what Alan has said after the game today, and he has apologized for the six successive losses before today:
“They are upset, they are angry – I understand that. I apologize to them for the last six games and hopefully, we have taken a very, very small step towards them.”
“You have to be resilient in the modern day.” “We have lost half the Premier League managers this year – we might even lose another four or five in the summer.”
Tim Krul had another good game today, and made some very important saves to keep Cardiff from scoring at crucial times in the game, but the visitors missed a number of gilt-edged opportunities, but that’s probably why they are rock bottom of the league and have now been relegated in their very first season in the Premier League.
But Newcastle';s record this year has been as bad as Cardiff City’s and it’s just that we managed to get 33 points in our first 18 games that has kept us afloat this season, and it’s likely we will finish in the top ten.
But if Mike Ashley heeds the criticism of the Newcastle fans, he will make big big money available in this upcoming summer transfer window.
That’s if he’s been listening.
