Pardew – It Will Be A Tough Game For Crystal Palace

If the lads can score a goal or two tomorrow against struggling Crystal Palace, then we should be able to get our first league win of the season, and that would give us a decent 4 points from our first three games, which is the same total we got in the last two season from our first three games.

Alan Pardew – it will be tough for Palace
Hope so

Even though we have only scored one goal so far this season (an own goal at that), Alan Pardew seems confident enough that the lads can make it a difficult game for Palace tomorrow, who will have Neil Warnock back for his first game in his second spell as manager at the London club:

“What you’ve got at Crystal Palace is good leadership there at the top of the club in the Chairman and the board, what you’ve got is a good group of professionals, some I know very, very well and have worked with.¨

“I’ve got absolutely no worries about Crystal Palace, I think they’ll be a Premier League side next season but at the moment, obviously, it’s about pulling it all together, which Neil has got the experience to do.”

“I’m a manager that likes to see goals, and unfortunately this last sort of period of my management here, we haven’t seen a lot of goals but not for the want of trying, particularly in the last three games.” 

“We’ve really done well against the opposition we’ve been up against. I do feel that they’ll come, and I want them to come as early as they can on Saturday and hopefully give our fans something to really scream about.

“We’ve got some good players, and you’ve only got to look at the quality on the training ground to know that I think on Saturday, it’ll be a tough game for Crystal Palace.”

What we need tomorrow is for Newcastle to start like the proverbial steam train, and if we can get an early goal that would give the players confidence to maybe get a few more goals in the game.

But on the other hand if we struggle again to put the ball into the back of the net, then the longer that goes on, the more Crystal Palace will believe they can get their first point(s) of the season.

Over 70% of fans are expecting Newcastle to win the game tomorrow, so anything else before the Intentional break will be a (big) disappointment.

    No goalscorer but never fear. We’ve got Percy and his death stare.

    Can someone remind us how upbeat Percy was after getting in the new faces? What was his Champions League quote?

    Glad John Alders body has been identified and he can finally return home to his beloved Newcastle.

    RIP John.

    Key tomorrow is Sissoko not playing in DM. He can’t do it, has no touch or awareness.
    Colback and Anita should retain the CM spots. I know Anita was poor last week but when he ticks it helps us retain possession. De Jong needs to start really. Pardew is a tosser for starting him at bloody Gillingham rather than giving him the last 30.

    Is this pardew guy for real ?

    We have played three games, and only have one goal which was an OG for the opposition .

    It is obvious to everyone and his dog what needs to be done in terms of Transfers . We are crying out for a Striker who can put the ball in the net, where is Cisse, is he injured ?

    I read stories about van Dijk going to the Scum last week, i,me not sure what to believe anymore? If van Dijk goes anywhere else than to us it will piss me off completely !
    The lad will end up at Southampton or Swansea but won,t be coming to us because we just pussy foot around and do nowt till its too late !

    It was,nt expected that we would win against Shitty but i had hoped for something more than a point at Villa.
    Actually i would prefer just to hear nowt about how well we are playing until we start winning, what a joke this all is.
    A win today would go a great deal to help but i just can,t see who is going to score the goals?

    Its such a shame as we have signed 9 players this year but not the sort of players we really need? A Striker and a strong CB !
