Alan Pardew ‘We Have Signed Players To Push For Champions League’
Alan Pardew has pointed to Southampton as a warning of not being able to hold onto your best players without Champions League, whilst at the same time claiming that despite losing Remy, Cabaye and Debuchy, Newcastle have a chance of….Champions League football.
I don’t have a problem of aiming for the stars but surely reality has to bite sometime.
If Newcastle had signed players with the kind of profile of Cabella, De Jong and a couple of others, PLUS kept Remy, Cabaye and Debuchy at the club, then I think maybe we could all have looked forward to the new season and thought…just maybe.
However, I must admit to finding Alan Pardews pre season patter a little tedious already, this time speaking to Radio Newcastle;
“If you don’t make the Champions League then the big teams come for your players – look at Southampton.
“We are pushing every year to try and build to hopefully get to a stage where we make it without losing our players.
“We have pitched in and signed players that we think give us a chance to push for Champions League.
We’ve already shown we are much better covered offensively than we were after Yohan Cabaye’s departure.
“We have options, more options to come in and it is going to strengthen my hand to tactically change the team.”
