Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said he is absolutely delighted with Newcastle’s second half performance when we went on the attack after being 1-0 down at the interval and do everything but win the game.
Alan Pardew at Burnley – must have been the first half
George Boyd had put Burnley ahead but Newcastle were a different looking side, and played like we have over the last several games, and we have to be just a little unlucky not to take all 3 points.
But Burnley also had some chances in the second half and we suppose both sides deserved a point.
This is some of what Pardew told the BBC after the game:
“Absolutely delighted with that – we didn’t play in the first half and Burnley had a lot to do with that.” “We didn’t risk enough.¨
¨We took risks in the second half and were a different class.¨ “It’s as good a point as we’ve got all season. The pitch was difficult tonight – it was slippery and slidy.”
Danny Ings was the star man for Burnley and we’re he will have impressed the watching Newcastle officials, with rumors that we will try to sign Danny in January for a nominal fee, since he becomes a free agent in the summer.
Newcastle now have a tough game on Saturday against league leaders Chelsea at home, and then the following Saturday we are at Arsenal – so a couple of difficult games ahead for us.
But Newcastle could produce a shock result in either game.
Newcastle have now taken 17 points from our last eight league games.
