Many fans have tired of the Alan Pardew press conferences both before and after Newcastle matches.
The United manager looking increasingly desperate as he comes up with increasingly outlandish claims to back up why Newcastle are falling apart, rather than simply stating that the overwhelmingly the problems are caused by Mike Ashley’s refusal to invest in the team, leaving the squad woefully short.
However, Alan Pardew has now become so desperate, he has resorted to changing the scores of previous matches to justify his arguments.
‘Is it frustrating Alan to have so many injuries because if you had a full strength team you might be able to show that the gap between you and Manchester United has closed somewhat this season?’
Alan Pardew is clearly desperate to blame everything on injuries, rather than lack of proper investment by Ashley, and uses this season’s two matches against Southampton to try and back up his claims about injuries being the only topic. The Newcastle manager saying;
“I thought it showed at Southampton that the gap was significant between us and Southampton on that particular day and that gap was not there when we played them at home and beat them one nil.
“The injuries have made us weaker, what we must do as a squad is to try to get a result with the team that we have got.”
Well the only problem Alan is that Newcastle didn’t beat Southampton one nil, it was actually one-one. Yes injuries do play a part but please keep to the truth!
Embarrassingly none of the press or Newcastle’s press people clearly recalled the true result and helped dig Pardew out of this embarrassingly hole he’d dug for himself when trying to make a forceful point.
