It’s going to be very difficult for Newcastle to get a win on Saturday, and if we are to do that, then the team will have to play like we did in our first two league game against Manchester City and Aston Villa, when we looked a decent enough side.
Fab Coloccini – can he rally the troops?
But it’s going to be difficult for the players on Saturday, because there are organized demonstrations going to take place, and heaven help us if we concede another early goal, because then it will be very difficult for our players to come back, and a defeat in this game could see the end of Pardew’s tenure as the Newcastle manager.
This is what has said Pardew said in an interview on nufcTV:
“It was a tough day to take.” “As a group and individually we’re better than that, and I take responsibility for that.”
“It was a heavy defeat when we were looking for so much more.” “It was a tough day for our fans, a tough day for the team and, certainly, a tough day for me.
“I don’t know about patience, this is a time to stand up and deliver really.” “Saturday is an important game for us because we’ve had a difficult start.
“Even if we’d got a point at Southampton it would have been an okay start because I think we’ve had some tough games.” “But now we have a game at home where the pressure is really going to be on us. We have to deliver.”
As may be expected Newcastle fans are not too confident of a win on Saturday – because of the bad form and maybe because of the demonstrations that we know are going to take place against the manager.
But hey, this is a chance for our new players – and all the players in the side for that matter – to show they have the guts and the courage to play under adversity for Newcastle – and get the win we need to lift ourselves off bottom place in the table.
But we also know that’s going to be very difficult, and the result of this game could decide the future of Alan Pardew – if we lose again.
