Alan Pardew Post-Match West Brom Press Conference Video
We had goals, the result, even sunshine(!), but perhaps the one person we should be looking at more than anybody else is Alan Pardew.
In recent matches I have heard the odd fan sniping at his team selections and tactics but I believe the great thing with our manager is he sees the bigger picture.
Alan Pardew is definitely the first manager since KK and Sir Bobby that I really like listening to, Watch The Post-Match Press Conference Here and listen to the manager explaining how we had our day in the sun.
I thought Santon looked back at his best after being taken out of the firing line recently, a young player who maybe needed a confidence booster of coming on with the result almost wrapped up.
Perch put in a really good shift at left-back (and then centre-back), proving to be the right choice on the day, just as Jonas was the right choice against Norwich even though we had to win through grit that day.
Likewise this front three, the first time that Ba, Cissé and Ben Arfa have really all clicked together. They were awesome. Since Cissé’s arrival though, Pardew maybe has had to juggle things around until they get on the same wavelength and at the same time not let United get too exposed at the back.
