‘Taylor, Cabaye & Ben Arfa Like 3 New Players…’
Alan Pardew (1st February 2013):
“Obviously we’re disappointed not to get a few more players over the line, but I’m very confident in the squad we’ve got to get us through until May and in a way; Yohan, Hatem and Steven Taylor coming back into the side is like having three new players so we were never in a position where we needed to spend.
When you have players of the versatility and quality of Willo and Perchy, you don’t really need an additional centre half, even though it’s a shame to lose Fabricio, but we can wait until the summer before we buy a decent replacement for him.
There was never any point in us making knee jerk reactions as I said last month.”
