Pardew Excuses In Advance ‘Midweek Game Made It Difficult For Us’ – Video Interview This Morning

8 years ago

Alan Pardew was quick off the mark in getting his excuses in early, when giving this video interview earlier today.

The Newcastle boss stating that ‘A midweek game has made it difficult for us…’

That Everton match was four days ago at St.James’ Park,not like it was the other side of the world yesterday.

Pardew saying;

“A midweek game this week made it difficult for us but it is about your squad.

“Two good sides today…it should make for a good game.”

I take it the implication (from Pardew) is that Southampton had it easier with no midweek match but honestly, surely Pardew is clutching at very thin straws when he comes out with this rubbish pre-match just so he can make excuses afterwards if/when his team and tactics fall apart.

Watch full pre-match interview below.
