Pardew – This Player Can Be Massive Bonus For Us This Season

In his press conference today for the game at Stoke on Monday night, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was surprisingly relaxed, calm and seemingly confident, and he fielded all the questions thrown at him by the journalists in attendance.

Certainly Pardew didn’t look like a man who was close to the end of his tenure at the club.

Pardew did spent some time talking about Papiss Cisse who should train today for the first time since he picked up the

“Papiss has not had much football and had flu this week, so he hasn’t trained yet. He’s not fully up to speed.” “But he’s fit and well, and there are no lingering doubts about his injury, and he looks on the way back which is pleasing.”

¨I thought he was very unfortunate last season, because I didn’t think he had a lot of opportunities in the first half of the season with Remy scoring, and in the second half when Remy got injured, we didn’t really have the creative force that we had in the first half of the season.¨

¨This team I think will create much more chances for him, and if he can recreate the form of two and three years ago, it will be a massive bonus.¨ ¨He’s a great character and personality, and we love him as a player so we are hoping he can get the goals.¨

At the end of the press conference Alan Pardew did say that Daryl Janmaat seems to be ready for the game on Monday night, but that Rolando Aarons is still three or four weeks away from being fit, which wasn’t good news.

We’ll see Papiss Cisse on Monday night either as a starter or coming off the bench, and if he’s anything like he was against Hull City, we should do well.

A win is what we need on Monday night.

    I always add a generous sprinkling of rusty nails to my fongings. It brings out the flavour, by which i mean extra discomfort.

    I totally believe the reason Pardew hasn’t been sacked is not only his, but also his back room staffs’s 8 year contracts. It’s not too hard to imagine that’s also a big part of why Ashley fell out with Llambias.

    Nice try, but 8 year contracts for managers and coaches and 5 and 6 year deals for players, I think is also at the root of why we are so mediocre.

    Tbh Newcastle is a glorified championship club and has been ever since the fat controller bought the club.
    Loads of fans have slowly but surely had their expectations lowered, I couldn’t get over how many were on cloud nine because we got a result the other night, had it been a premier league game it would have been yet another draw.
    We have a Poor squad over rated by fans which will do very well to escape relegation.
    As far as MA goes offering long contacts is his nieve lack of football knowledge.

    Just got back from Chelsea Villa, my dad had a an extra ticket in this hospitality thing

    Two things
    1st thing, the football, wow Chelsea are different gravy! If these lads don’t win the league I’ll be stunned
    Fabregas wow his range of passing is phenomenal, not sure if he misplaced a single one, every ball he played seemed to be inch perfect! Willian is unbelievably fast and that Costa is a monster!

    2nd thing
    Chelsea fans are just the worst, like watching a game in a bloody library! Even coming out the stadium, 3-0 home win playing some top draw football and there all walking out in silence!
    Crazy stuff

    Thump, I bet that Jagielka rocket woke ya up though eh. hahaa

    But true though, on the whole its not been a barnstorming day of footy.

    Tbh, Gunners, Spuds, Liverpool and Everton have all looked pretty pish this season thus far. Liverpool claiming they weren’t a one/two man team with Sturidge and Sourez last season are showing themselves to be just that really. And if Gerrard didnt chip in with pens and free-kicks every now and then they’d be even more screwed.

    @ toonincheek

    Well he has brought the youngsters into a bad atmosphere this season with protests and the team not performing ! The games we lost last season such as Fulham away Aaraons would have torn them a new one they were terrible we offered nothing up front and there were a lot of games where we missed a zip from someone which the young ones could have provided !

    Would have also gave the likes of Sissoko and Gouffran a kick up the backside as they were the 2 of the worst players for throwing in the towel when Cabaye went

    The plastic Chelsea fans don’t deserve their recent success .

    If they weren’t based in London no one would give a toss about them, let alone a Russian Billionaire .

    If NUFC was based in London with the same fan base and stadium we would have been bought out a long time ago .

    Honestly mate, it’s the most bizarre thing I’ve ever ever experienced
    Seriously the Villa fans tbf were loud, but the first goal went in after what 8-9 minutes? Literally the Chelski fans jumped up shouted “yeah” clapped and sat back down
    Couldn’t get me head round it at all
    Why do they bother going? Every f***er had a club shop bag too, they all walked in the stadium and pulled out there new shirts and put em on really wierd

    I see Messi made Rio Ferdinand look like a cnut today.
    Remember when Rio said Messi is brilliant but all one foot?? Well one of his assists today was a superb right footed cross, and his second goal was also right footed. Rio Bellendinand.

    From big Terry in this article “When the Newcastle supporters turn against you, though, it has to be bad for that to happen. Those supporters are the best in the country. When I was a manager, I always wanted to manage Newcastle United. I always thought, whether they were doing well or not, that I could get my teeth into this, that I could take them where they wanted.”

    @ Jeff

    I agree m8 the guy is a total mug. Amazes me how many NUFC fans respect him because he says nice things about his time here . Slags Ashley off, yes the guy who was paying him weekly wages while he was in prison FFS .

    Not to mention he slagged of Shearer despite not being fit to lace the mans boots .

    Rio Ferdinand wants a slap too and is starting to spout his mouth off as he wants to sell his new book . Guy thinks he is a God and needs a good slap .

    It was his brother wasn’t it?

    And to be fair, even though the pot is calling the kettle.. He’s still right, Ashley does lack class.

    They probably buy a new top every game then proceed to fight over who’s the best fan
    “I’ve got the newest top”
    “no I have”
    “I bought mine today”
    “well I bought mine just now”

    I wonder what Ashley’s “crisis management expert” thought about his brush with the media?

    That whole thing smacks of a pisshead letting too much slip when they’ve had a few. I reckon Pardew would have been gone but now we’re stuck for a few more weeks because Ashley got drunk and said something publicly that he was meant to keep quiet.

    Pardew forcing Mbiwa out is a sackable offence on it’s own. Never mind the list of 1000 more reasons why he HAS TO BE SACKED. Good for Yanga that he’s in a proper football team now that play the ball. It’s a joke in 2014 that someone of Pardew’s ilk should be let near PL in the 1st place.
    Harsh to judge our players playing under this ineptitude. Our players are more than good enough for top 10 playing nice football.

    Hope we lose to Stoke and he’s gone. It’s our only hope of going anywhere. Faint hope though because Ashley would probably replace him with Moyes or Pulis or worse instead of an actual FOOTBALL COACH
