Alan Pardew Lists The Principles He Stands By

8 years ago

In advance of the trip to Liverpool, Alan Pardew has reminded everybody of the principles that he stands by.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the Newcastle United manager had this to say;

“You have a responsibility at Newcastle to play the game on the floor. Play with passion and speed and play with an integrity.

“Those principles I stand by and next year I expect to deliver on those.”

Alan Pardew was also asked whether the venom and disdain from the Newcastle fans at the Cardiff match hurt him.

“Well it always hurts, criticism of yourself.

“You must not think you are above all this, and accept it, and find a solution.

“In life there’s a rocky road, whatever life you lead, and when it gets rocky you have to stay strong and focused on what you are about.

“I like my teams to play the right way, I think in this last period we’ve been a little bit too negative”

I can’t help but be reminded of one of my favourite ever quotes from Groucho Marx –

“Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them…well, I have others.”
