Pardew Proves Newcastle So Much Better Than Southampton Until You Check The Facts…

8 years ago

Alan Pardew has once again compared Newcastle v Southampton.

Some months ago the Newcastle manager name checked the Saints as one of the clubs Newcastle couldn’t financially compete with.

Then in the lead up to the four goal humiliation at St.Mary’s only weeks ago, Pardew came out fighting in a reaction to people drawing unfavourable comparisons between the different directions the two clubs appear to be heading in, by stating Newcastle were still higher in the table than their south coast counterparts.

With the Saints now higher in the table, the latest Pardew statement/claims/excuses when comparing the two clubs in the last few days, have seen him point out that Newcastle have actually won more matches than Southampton (pre-Swansea match).

This is actually true, unlike many of Pardew’s other ‘facts’ that he plucks out of the air, with Newcastle having recorded 14 wins to Southampton’s 13.

However, this doesn’t tell the full story and sometimes the things you don’t say are the most telling.

Here are the two records so far;

Newcastle –      W 14 D 4 L 16 GF 38 GA 52 GD -14 Points 46

Southampton – W 13 D 9 L 12 GF 50 GA 38 GD +5 Points 48

So Newcastle might have won 1 more match but have also lost 4 more, won 2 less points, scored 12 less goals, conceded 14 more and have a goal difference of a massive 19 worse than the Saints.
