Pardew ‘Manchester City Should Win This Game’

8 years ago

Alan Pardew will claim that he is using kidology or taking the pressure off his players when predicts a Manchester City win.

However, I often get the feeling that our manager likes to get his excuses in first.

Whoever we are playing it is always ‘there are no easy games’ etc etc – even when we play rubbish teams in the cups.

Obviously you aren’t going to claim City are rubbish but I really don’t see what is to be gained by going on about how great the opposition are and they they should beat our lot easily.

This is what Alan Pardew had to say on the club’s official website today;

“They have got strength everywhere and it is a game they should win, make no mistake about it.

“If I put my neutral head on, Manchester City should win this game. We can though put in a performance that can unsettle the top teams.

“You could name seven or eight Manchester City players that are very very fantastic players and that any Premier League manager would give their right arm for.

“The point for us is that we are off a disappointing result at home and we have got a bit of feeling in our group to put that right, it gives us a slight momentum going into this game.”

I do like some of what Pardew has to say at times but he honestly does talk some rubbish, not sure how losing three games in a row gives us ‘momentum’ going into the City match!
