The besieged Newcastle manager Alan Pardew hopes that the team can get their first win of the season at the Liberty Stadium today, but to do that we would need to score at least one goal – I think that’s the way it works.
Will Alan Pardew look like this after the game today?
Newcastle have failed to score in four of their first six league games, but hopefully we can turn that all around today, before the long two week International break, when nothing much usually happens, so if we lose we have to stew in that defeat for two long weeks, maybe at the bottom of the league. 🙁
This is what Alan has said to the press today:
“I’m out there, I’m fighting for the team, I want us to win, I love this football club and I want to go over to them and clap them after a win rather than clapping at them when they are shouting or hollering at me, or throwing their programs and God knows what else.”
“I’m not holding any grievance against the media or some of our more militant fans or the guys who printed the posters.” “I wouldn’t say where I am is normal.”
“But it’s happened I’m not going to hide.” “I’ve been up here all week.” “I’ve been out and about, I’ve had a few fans telling me their opinions, quite strongly, a few cars diving a bit too close to me etc, etc.”
“I get it. I’ve got no problem with it.” “I’m not here to be destructive – I’m not here out of the arrogance.” “I’m not here for any other reason but to try to win a match as manager of this football club.”
We lost this game 3-0 last season, and it was at a time when we had started to do quite well, but we gave away some poor goals that day and missed some chances too, and let’s hope that doesn’t happen today.
If Newcastle do lose today there have been reports that Alan Pardew will still not be sacked, so that would probably be the worst possible outcome today.
It would be nice if we could get a win.
