Alan Pardew ‘Shoals Gave Us A Shola Performance’

8 years ago

After today’s bore draw with West Ham, Alan Pardew was asked about the players drafted into the team.

There were a number of changes from the City match and have to agree that Santon looked back to his near his best.

Interesting to hear Pardew’s take on the rest of the players but especially Shola;

“I think they all did well.

I thought Santon was wasn’t quite ready for the first game but I thought he was terrific today, outstanding performance.

Anita, last year I thought he found it difficult. Worked on him, talked to him and today he put in his best performance. He gave us an Ajax performance; passing, covering for people, lots of work probably went unnoticed.

Sylvain did well, in those little pockets, until he tired a little bit…and Sammy did well when he came on.

Shoals gave us a Shola performance, wholehearted.”

I have to agree, that was most definitely a ‘Shola’ performance!
