Time For Pardew To Be (Very) Bold In His Team Selection

Saturday, September 27th, 2014 · 24 Comments

It looks like Papiss Cisse will be fit to play on Monday night at the Britannia Stadium, and it’s going to be interesting to see what Alan Pardew’s team selection is for the game, because Newcastle really need a win if the manager is to improve his chances of keeping his job on Tyneside.

The Character Is There – We Want To Win Every Game

Saturday, September 27th, 2014 · 5 Comments

We thought most players on Wednesday night had very good games with Coloccini playing very solidly at the back and pushing forward whenever he could, and when the team came under pressure in extra time Colo seemed to help calm things down.
