Alan Pardew – ‘Nice To See A Few Roly Polys In Our Team’

8 years ago

I have quite dramatic shifts of opinion with Alan Pardew, particularly when he’s speaking at his press conferences.

Over the time he has been at Newcastle he can do your head in, on a regular basis. At times he has literally said one thing one week and the opposite the next but at other times he does speak really well.

At the pre-Aston Villa press conference which was broadcast on NUFC TV, Alan Pardew spoke passionately about the effect that the Steve Harper celebration night had on him, bookmarking it as something he can show the players as to what Newcastle United is all about.

He wasn’t quite so generous when it came to the fitness levels of the ex-Newcastle United all stars….;

“What club in this country could have got fifty one thousand for a testimonial, it was a humbling experience to sit in the stands. Those great players that have graced the shirt, if ever our players needed a reminder of the history of this club it was there for all to see last night.

Nice to see a few roly-polys in our team so I’ll be checking on a few of the guys to make sure their diets are OK, still a lot of years left for those boys.”
