Alan Pardew is looking at his glass being more than half full after the win at Morecame IF Newcastle beat Fulham on Saturday.

Despite the League Cup win, the league table makes worrying reading with only one point fro two games and lying third from bottom.

Alan_Pardew_Newcastle_United_NUFC_69Looking forward to Saturday though, this is what Alan Pardew had to say to NUFC TV;

“Tonight takes the pressure off us a little bit and if we get a win against Fulham then I consider that a decent start; got through the League Cup and 4 points from those 3 games because they weren’t easy. But we have to win first and our fans, who were brilliant by the way tonight, can hopefully help us do that on Saturday.”

If I hadn’t seen the performances against Manchester City and West Ham I might be sleeping a little more comfortably but to watch those matches and Newcastle’s only ‘shot’ on target a speculative long range effort from Tiote, you can’t help but worry.

Against Morecambe Newcastle struggled to create chances until Ben Arfa came on and I can’t see Fulham coming with as negative an attitude as Fat Sam’s Hammers, so if Newcastle don’t score then I see only one result…

Four points would be ok but anything else is potentially disastrous because home matches against the likes of Fulham and West Ham are surely two of the nine or ten most winnable matches in our fixtures.

Credit to you NUFC fans for your reaction to this pitiful example of journalism. There's still plenty time to turn your season around. Here's hoping you get your Christmas wishes - players fit to wear your shirt and a fanzine blog worthy of your club. Keep the faith

I am a non Newcastle fan, (Yeah, soz I'm Palace). But you lot on this site are an utter joke and you do your club and it's followers a great disservice. I was at the game on Saturday and on the way to the ground and on the way home I met numerous Geordies who are are credit to NUFC, passionate followers of their local team who shares the highs and (more so recently) get frustrated by the lows but none of them came across like the bitter, sad, vindictive and delusional morons who "write" for this "publication". True fans you are not and it is an insult to them that claim to speak for them.

The editor of this fanzine needs to be sacked. 90% of the article contributors are fecking morons and they're giving us a bad name.

i'm sure i have read on here a few seasons ago about how zaha would be a great asset to the toon.

sour grapes do not sort out our internal problems. newcastle fans are lauded as some of the best, passionate and fairest fans in the world where we give credit where credit is due.

articles like this tarnish the reputation of a once great club- blaming other teams players when we weren't good enough takes focus off the real problems newcastle united are facing. please avoid doing it next time we take a hammering

Are you kidding me.  We dont help ourselves with articles like this. The fact that  our captain spent more time on his arse or with his back to the ball let alone the volume or lack of commitment from every single one of the money earners not fit to wear the black and white. Picking on a player who was simply too good for any of our boys is like being in the school yard and saying my pa will smack yours.  grow up man.

Great reporting once again. This truly is THE go to place for a decent article. I'm not quite sure exactly where he says 'I'll keep on diving' but I assume it is somewhere, this being the mag - one of the most reputable sensible article writers of all time. I have to assume that he said this somewhere else and that the mag accidentally missed the quote out from their article - and not take any notice of how silly that is, seeing as the article states that this is what he said in its headline.
