Alan Pardew has Newcastle playing total football with every player knowing what his job is, and they all work very hard to make it difficult for the opposition.
Pardew congratulates Perez on Saturday
And even with the strikers they have a role to play and for instance Ayoze Perez works his socks off for Newcastle when he is in the team.
And even last Saturday at home to QPR, when Ayoze failed to make it a goal in each of his last four Premier League games, Alan Pardew is pleased with the rapid progress the Spanish youngster is making on Tyneside:
“Ayo was a threat all day. You can’t take your eye off him. He excites you and he excites the crowd.” “That’s traditional at Newcastle.”
“The discipline of the back four, the midfield and the strikers to defend, is getting us where we want to be. We keep nicking a goal, and then we might nick a second and the game’s over.”
And Newcastle can only play the way they have played over the last two months if they are super fit, and because of the intensity of the training, we have suffered a number of injuries over the past few weeks.
But the good news is that Fab Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Cheick Tiote and Manu Riviere are all back in training this week.
The impressive 18 year-old Rolando Aarons should start training next week and Ryan Taylor’s knee injury is not as bad as first thought and he is said to be only two or three weeks away from returning to the training field.
And Siem de Jong revealed he had his first outdoor training session this week too, after being out injured with a torn thigh muscle since early September.
It’s all good news for Newcastle United at the moment.
We love it!
