Pardew – ‘I’ve Waited 14 Months For this!’
Following the final whistle I get the impression that Alan Pardew must have been sprinting down from the dugout to get in front of the press and tell them that he was quite happy after that performance,
One player in particular the manager seemed quite keen to mention…
“When you come up against the top teams you need to unsettle them which we did.
We didn’t give them any time, didn’t let them get out at the back and I felt we were deserving of our half-time lead.
In the second-half they came out and were fantastic, their two goals were top drawer but we managed to stick in and scored a brilliant goal on the break; Sissoko has signalled his entrance!
I saw him 14 months ago and said I’d be delighted if we could get him, he’s fantastic”.
We saw in the first half against Villa glimpses of what Sissoko could do and today we saw the unedited version; power, pace (can’t wait to see him outpace Ashley Cole again, look out for it if you weren’t there) and goals…loving it!
