Pardew – You Need A Tin Hat To Be At Newcastle

Steven Taylor is playing himself back into the Newcastle side, and after having a rest on Wednesday night he was back partnering Coloccini at the back and our lads put in another good shift today with the lads getting their second successive clean sheet at home.

Steven Taylor – the belief is back

And for the second league game running it was 21 year-old Ayoze Perez who scored the winner in the second half and he dispatched the ball confidently after it had back off a Liverpool defender.

It was Newcastle fourth win in a row for the first time since April of two years ago – and the lads were very well organized and there is a great spirit in the side, after all they have gone through this season.

Getting 9 points out of our last three league games is just amazing.

This is what Steven Taylor told BT Sport after the game today:

“The belief is back now and that’s what we needed,” “I think we showed today what we’re all about and we caught them on the counter attack many times.¨

“First half we tried to get down the outside but they’re very well organised, the ability that they’ve got, they could catch us on the counter-attack themselves.”

And Alan Pardew talked about needing a tin hat at Newcastle after the game (we had attributed this comment initially to Steven – before we realized the daft mistake – well that’s what happens when you win four games in a row!):

“It was a great atmosphere today, “Everybody is fully behind him and the main thing is, we keep winning and everybody is happy.¨

“It’s exciting and obviously we have got a bit of momentum going into the next game but we just keep taking it one game at a time and not getting carried away.”

“This is Newcastle and you have to take note that there are real highs.” “I think Bobby Robson said the highs are massive here and the lows are equally as low.¨

“I needed a tin hat at times, I need a tin hat at times, but when the good times come this is as good a city to be in as any.”

The bottom line is that we are now unbeaten in the last five games since the Stoke defeat and we have won the last four – and we now have 13 points form 10 games – not too bad at all.

And given we had only 4 points from the first seven games – it’s great!

    Jail and rotonda from previous post

    Maybe Pardew has visited sackpardew and learned a few home truths.

    He’s been very humble in his interviews recently, and his team selections have improved ridiculously.

    that’s the big point , the one who are backing p45 are the ones who said he don’t have a good enough squad to work with,

    where as the one who want p45 out, wanted him out for not trusting his squad and sticking to the same old same old,

    p45 still dosnt set the team up right , the game was pretty poor , players in the first half were all over the shop and had no clue what the formation was , and Cisse was the victim of that,

    p45 said 352 , I could not see us in a 352 ,

    who were the 3 at the back , ?
    who were the 2 forwards ?

    really happy for Abeid , the kid should have been in the team 2 seasons ago, ahead of tiote

    He’s got the brains of the tin man I’m surprised that he hasn’t got a tin hat.

    Two things that haven’t been pointed out already:

    Cabella deserves credit for controlling the tempo in the attack that we scored our goal. Without his move in our own half we wouldn’t have as many men going forward with pace.

    Also Pardew could have easily turned to Gouffran (or Haidara) when Obertan got injured but he didn’t and instead put Aarons on like most fans would have for once.

    I think gerrard being deep in the first half helped us imo. When he moved further up in the second half we were alot deeper inviting pressure although we did counter them a few times. Pleased with the first half and nervous the second. Amazing what a few wins do to the crowd alot more noise today which puts an extra man on the pitch. Made my weekend!

    it gets on my tits when people on here who’ve never been to SJP start blaming the crowd for our losses, when the team give us something to shout about it’s one of the best grounds in the country.
