Alan Pardew Hoping For Smoother Run At Newcastle


After getting Newcastle’s first league win of the season on Saturday against Leicester City, and out third win in total this season, Alan Pardew is hoping things will be a bit easier and that he will have a smoother run as manager of Newcastle United.

Alan Pardew – hoping for smoother run at Newcastle

This is what Alan had to say in the Shields Gazette today:

“I’m not going to pretend it hasn’t been tough. It has been very, very tough to look our fans in the eye when I’ve met them in the street and listened to their frustration and complaints.” “It’s fair, and I can’t say it’s not. We should be winning more games than we are.”

“I’ll hopefully have a smoother run now in terms of being able to manage the football club without all the additional pressures that defeats bring.” “The social media and everything else heap more pressure on us managers, and we have to be tough in this game.¨

“We got a win, and that helps.”

It was apparently some place to be after the game in the dressing room on Saturday, with even owner Mike Ashley there for over 10 minutes as he congratulated the players on the win – and one Newcastle insider had mentioned to the Chronicle that you would have thought we had won a trophy – given the level of the celebrations.

But there was a growing feeling that maybe our squad is simply not good enough this season, but given the win and that we could have as many as five players back from injury for the Spurs game – things may be looking up – with the emphasis on may.

If we can get a second win on the trot at Tottenham on Sunday – it will almost be as big a relief as it was last Saturday when the final whistle blew – and we had actually scored more goals than the opposition.

3 points on Sunday will help us move up the league table quite a few places, but of course it’s much easier said than done.

It’s going to be a tough game and we need to be at or near our best to get anything out of the game.

    I sincerely hope it is going to be a tough game; Spuds will not lie down and die, so if we want a result we will have to battle evey inch of the way to get it.

    On the contrary, we have managed to put in a half decent shift in only our last 3 games, with 1 win. If Spuds go all out for the win, from the off, it could be all over by half time.

    Frankly, I am hoping that we don’t get beat against Spuds on Sunday.
    First we need to get our tactics right.
    Second play at a higher tempo.
    Third get the WHOLE team to put in a full shift for the entire match, no switching off in stoppage time!
    If we do all of the above we should do well.

    the guy is in cloud kookoo land , we narrowly beat LC, and we are off to Spuds to get spanked on Sunday.

    then I think we are in for good old spanking in the cup by city

    then its Liverpool , Baloteili is probably going to break hi duck against us, and score a hatrick

    then we have 2 winnable games, Wbrom QPR 6 pointers at this stage of the season,

    then we wont win until after xmas Burnley at home

    wake up you muppet
