It’s a very difficult thing for Newcastle fans to demonstrate against the manager during a game, and not have that be a negative for the players, because after all they are only human.
That’s true – isn’t it? 😀
Fabricio Coloccini – it’s important the fans back the players
And the massive press build-up to last Saturday’s game when 30,00 Sack Pardew.com vouchers were said to be printed, it was always going to be a difficult game – not only for manager Alan Pardew – but also for the players.
But we give massive credit to the players for giving out 100% throughout the game, and even when we were 2-0 down and everything looked lost, the fans kept supporting the lads, because our players never gave up, and on the day were able to rescue a decent point.
The Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini has thanked the Newcastle fans for this today, when he has this to say in the Shields Gazette:
“I think we had a good tempo during the game.” “We had a difficult week as well, and I think all the team showed the ambition that we want to do the right things.”
“Sometimes you can do well, sometimes not, but we tried our best, and I have to say thank you.” “We didn’t expect the support that we got. Once more, the fans showed they support us like always.”
“It’s a big point to make, because I know it was a very tough week for them as well.” “I want to say thank you from me and all the lads for the way they supported.”
“For us, it’s very important.” “It’s not about it being the cup or not, we need a win to get confidence again and show the fans again that we want to do the right things.”
We have yet to win in the league, but we did beat Gillingham 1-0 in the previous round fo the League Cup.
The Sack Pardew. com people have said on their web-site they will keep these protests going until Pardew is no longer the manager:
“We will not stop until either this employment has been terminated, or until Pardew gives the club a chance to remain in the top flight by offering his resignation.”
His employment is terminated when a resignation is accepted.
82% of fans still want Alan Pardew out as manager.
A good question would be what do the sack pardew.com people do if we win our next four games, as an example, which though (very) unlikely is still possible.
Anyway, we hope the lads can win tonight and we fully expect the traveling fans to support the players on the field, as long as they give 100%.
