We’re Out Of The Relegation Zone – I Will Enjoy This Victory

Alan Pardew has been under massive pressure at Newcastle all this year really, and less resilient managers would have resigned with all the pressure he’s had to withstand because of our poor results – and it has included an anonymous group orchestrating demonstrations to sack Pardew at a number of our games.

Alan Pardew – at yesterday’s game

You might not think much of Alan Pardew’s coaching abilities, but one thing we’ve found out about the Londoner this year is that he is mentally tough, and then some.

And with two wins in a row at home to Leicester and then yesterday when the lads engineered a simply amazing second half comeback to win at White Hart Lane for the second time running – it’s hardly surprising Pardew says he will enjoy yesterday’s victory:

“We find ourselves out of the relegation zone tonight and that is a massive relief for this football club, because the spotlight was very much on us and the pressure affects everybody, not just the players playing, but our staff and everybody connected with the football club.¨

“In a way, that has been a great victory today.¨ “You’ve got to win games in the Premier League. Back end of last year we struggled and the start of this year, with our new players not quite settling, we struggled again.¨

“I have not hidden from that, and I have not hidden from the criticism. We still have a lot to do in this Premier League season. But today I am going to smile, and I am going to enjoy this victory because it’s a big, big win for us.”

The Newcastle manager did issue some bad news today that both Papiss Cisse and Cheick Tiote will miss our next two games against Manchester City in the League Cup on Wednesday, and at home to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

We seem to have had too many injuries already this season – especially with our rather small squad, and some of our new players trying hard to get to grips with the English style of football.

But those two great wins will give our lads a lot of confidence – that’s also very true.

Things are starting to look up at Newcastle – just a little bit. 😀

    That Winston Churchill biography has worked wonders on Pardew.

    Out can happen?

    So why does it always happen with us?
    Why does it happen time and time again yet people like you defend Pardew?

    This isn’t new, isn’t the first time.
    Two results sorry two lucky results can’t and won’t cover the fact Pardew is 5hit at his job, normal service will resume sooner rather than later as I see another tremendous run of underachievement followed by a round of applause from yourself and the others blinded by Pardew and Ashley’s BS.

    Pessimistic I’m not defending Pardew, I’m just enjoying the winning feeling and seeing the young players putting a shift in.

    Tiote & Cisse will be fit about the time they are needed for the African Cup. They will return knackered again. We will catch a glimpse of them in cameos during the last few weeks of the season.

    Liverpool look like a very beatable team right now, good time to come up against them. Let’s make it 3 wins in a row now! Sammy needs to start over Gouffran for sure, a 4-3-3 with Cabella on the RW and Sammy LW with Obertan, Sissoko and Colback in midfield would be good.
