Pardew Could Be First Ever Manager To Achieve These Stats


We are hoping our run of five wins on the trot is not over,  and that we can extend the run by good few more games yet.

If we can do that then heaven knows where we could end up in the league table next May, but the key is not to get too carried away and think we are doing well, and then over-confidence seeps into the squad.

But it looks like Alan Pardew, who was under severe and intense pressure all year –  until we eventually started winning a few weeks ago –  is not going to allow that to happen.

This is what the Newcastle manager has said today:

“When you have had 703 games you’ve had to prove people wrong many times. It’s about consistency.” “Maybe in my younger days I’d get carried away when we are on a run like this but I won’t now.”

“We’ll just keep doing what we did from the start of the season.” “The results are much better and the confidence is higher.”

“We have a different type of organisation to our team,  and all of that is giving us the rewards we are getting at the moment.”

Earlier this year, before our crucial 3-0 win at home to Cardiff City, we lost six straight Premier League games,  and scored only one goal in that run – in the 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea on 19th April.

Newcastle have won their last four league games, and it we can beat QPR at home and then West Ham away – a difficult game given the Hammers good form – then Alan will have gone through one calendar year when he lost six league games in a row, and then won six games in a row.

That has to be some unique record in the Premier League, the most popular spurts league in the world..

It’s also indicative of the up and down form of Newcastle United under Alan Pardew, and what we need now from the Newcastle manager and our players is consistency – on the winning side of things of course. 😀

If we can do that, and the lads keep playing like they have been doing over the last six weeks or so, we could again be the shock club in the Premier League this season, like we were when we finished 5th top in 2012.

That’s what we are hoping for.

Howay The Lads!!

    Regarding the last thread, like him or loathe him, if Ashley is pumping money into Rangers to keep them afloat, he has every right to have a say in natters relating to the running of the club in my opinion.

    Why do you say we shouldn’t get carried away when some of your recent articles strongly indicate thst you are being carried away ?

    Double standards ?

    QPR wont be an easy game. They ran liverpool chelsea and man city close for little reward and they gave a very dangerous striker on top form at present.

    Totally agree but the amount he is contributing seems so paltry when compared to the income and expenses of clubs in the EPL.

    If he is building up his stake, having coughed up a only £3 million which probably isn’t even close to chicken feed for him, then either Rangers is in a far worse state than anyone realises or he is playing the long game to such an extent that the end is off the radar.

    It’s frightening that a club as big as Glasgow Rangers should have fallen so low. I thought Leeds and Portsmouth were bad enough examples of mismanagement but Rangers seems to have eclipsed these two.

    Whether liked or loathed Ashley must take the credit for steading the financial ship at St James Park.

    No he is not. But after the trauma of the last 9 months prior to this unexpected run, you cannot blame supporters for being on a bit of a high.

    Rangers costs a lot more for Ashley than Newcastle. He made a profit with us, for rangers and Celtic to remain at the top and compete in champions league they spend a lot more than they make.

    I still don’t get the rangers situation. Prem league offers much more advertising than Scotland.

    He is being extremely careful whilst building up his support base on the board and well as gaining a fairly significant foothold on the marketing side of the club.

    He is a very astute businessman and once they achieve SPL status next season, he will need to increase the amount of money he puts into their club as well as hoping to attract back the missing supporters.

    My theory on that is that he may well be fed up with the flak he has had aimed at him at NUFC and wants out.

    It is unlikely he would be able to buy out another EPL club due to his reputation and he cant go into the european scene.

    If he sells us, his loan to us will be incorporated into the selling price and he can also sell some of our better players to line his pockets as well as dipping into Sky Tv money at the end of thus season and the next.

    He has also by then had almost 10 years free advertising for SD which has seen his personal wealth triple in that time. He also gets a hefty share of profits from the club marketing sales which will probably continue after he leaves.

    He will buy Rangers for a song, build them up in a similar fashion over a number of years and then sell at a huge profit.

    You’ll all be delighted to know that Newcastle United is indirectly supporting Rangers’ finances.

    Our profits are taken by MASH Holdings which has loaned ‘gers £3m!

    What kindly fans we are, oh yes, most generous!

    I doubt very much that the flak would influence him in any meaningful business decision as important as selling an asset in Mash Holdings.

    He has had flak since the day he started out in business yonks ago and it appears to have had little or no effect on him.

    He will sell on his own terms in his own time and the fans will have absolutley no bearing in his decision.

    Who knows why Ashley wants a stake in Rangers, but couldn’t it simply be that they are a huge club with a global fan base who have bottomed out so he can buy in cheap, gather as much ownership as he can, develop them and with it the value of his investment and also get his brand on their shirts and so global exposure via the Champions League, as well as the global exposure he’s already getting from owning Newcastle.

    I think Ashley does too well out of Newcastle to let it go easily, when he can have both.

    Strictly speaking there is no ‘our profits’. NUFC is owned by Mash Holdings where the bulk of the profit comes from shares in Sports Direct. There are also holdings in Debenhams.

    Expat, I thought the wording was basically will not sell before the end of next season. I don’t read that as an indication that he will look to sell then.

    There is probably more Glasgow Rangers supporters worldwide than Newcastle supporters but Newcastle get the greater television exposure because they are in the English Premier League.

    When Rangers return to the SPL, as they will do, they still won’t get anything like the exposure that Newcastle get because the EPL is so dominant being generally regarded as the richest and most watched league in the world.

    5th top in 2012
    How good that sounds.We could been 4 th place that year but we simply lost from Manchester City at home and that was heartbreaking.But still 5th place is very nice to remember.Ba and Cisse were on fire that year.Cabaye also.Obertan and Ben Arfa fought for first eleven position and spider hero Gutierrez was incredible.Tiote,Danny Simpson etc.Hope Obertan and Aarons come back soon and Marveaux also in order to be near to that 2012 team.Now we are still unstable.Results are important but what we see on the pitch is MORE important.

    We lost temporarily two crucial players in Obertan and Aarons and we haven’t replacement for them.Just shadow replacements.And we won’t have WBA all the time.That weakness will appear on the surface.

    mattroge——- yeah i read that article a few days ago. he is 100% right in my opinion. 4 or 5 games dosnt hide the fact the last 3 years have been the wortst in our history. to win me over he has to keep winning . a run of 5 games every so often is not good enough. To be fair to pards though we will have to stop winning soon just in case we get a europe spot.
