Pardew ‘We Had Them Just Where We Wanted Them’

9 years ago

Alan Pardew juggled his limited resources on Thursday night and came up with a formation and tactics that almost did the trick.

Afterwards he summed up his feelings when he talked about the ninety minutes and the second leg to come;

“We had them just where we wanted them before the second goal, then two poor goals from us.

I was overjoyed with the performance but not the result, that probably sums up my feelings.

If we can put pressure on Benfica at home then pressure can do funny things to you.”
