London Press Ask Alan Pardew If He Can Match Last Season! – Video Interview

7 years ago

Well worth you taking five minutes to watch this Alan Pardew post match Palace press conference video.

There is the obvious reason in that after a win most of us want to hear and read as much as possible about a win – but these questions and answers from the Newcastle boss’ post-match appearance are especially entertaining/enlightening.

Good to hear Alan Pardew talking about his players individually and the manager fielding questions from the southern press that we (and our manager!) have heard numerous times.

One of the highlights is a particularly clueless southern based asking a long rambling question where he constantly makes reference to whether Pardew and Newcastle can match last season’s achievements, before at last the Newcastle manager gets an opportunity to inform him that last season we nearly got relegated!

I found it interesting as well that towards the end of the question and answer session, the second last question sees the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder asking Alan Pardew whether he has a message for the travelling fans…only to get cut off halfway through by NUFC head of media Wendy Taylor, reminding Lee Ryder that he and the other NCJ journalists are banned from asking the manager anything.

Straight away there is another (last) question posed by one of the southern press but after answering him, Alan Pardew makes a point of going back to Lee Ryder’s question and says that he does indeed have a message for those travelling fans and that is to wish them a ‘Merry Merry Christmas’ and that he’s sure they/we are all looking forward to Boxing Day and the visit of Stoke.
