Here is some of the press conference yesterday, where Alan Pardew defended and praised the Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, who for 17 seasons running has got Arsenal into the knockout rounds of the Champions League – and that ‘s a very high level of consistency almost unmatched in present day football.
But it’s still not good enough for some Arsenal fans it seems.
We wish Newcastle had been in the last 16 in the Champions League every season for the last 17 years.
Note: Two of our readers – Robert Cropper and Joseph English – are Newcastle University students and for their third year dissertation they have chosen to focus on the question “Has There Been a Decline in Atmosphere at British Stadiums?” with a specific focus on Newcastle United.
They need as many questionnaires filled out as possible – please see if you can help them here.
