Alan Pardew ‘For Those About To Rock’

8 years ago

With seven wins and a draw from the last nine matches, an Alan Pardew Arsenal quote summed up the forthcoming clash with the Gunners on Sunday.

The first half against Stoke was anything but straightforward and the atmosphere in that opening period matched the team’s lack of focus.

However, Alan Pardew believes it will be a different matter when Newcastle have the chance to close the gap on Arsenal to only three points;

“This place will be rocking and Arsenal know that, it is a difficult game for both teams so let us see how we match up.

“We’ve depth and a lot of quality plus we are working hard, so we are difficult to beat.

“Our fans want to win things which we have not been near for years – it’s nice to have a team that’s competitive.”

While the players did little to get the fans going in the first forty minutes against Stoke, by the same token the supporters also have to take their share of the responsibility.

Anything less than a great atmosphere on Sunday will weaken Newcastle’s chances but together, fans and players, can make things very interesting heading into the new year with a win over one of our ‘rivals’.
