Alan Pardew ‘99% Of My Players Are Spot On’
Alan Pardew has stated that he is ‘fairly convinced’ his group of players have the right motivation to represent Newcastle United this season.
The Newcastle manager saying that it is a positive there is no European Championship or World Cup to distract his players this time around. Something that most fans would see as a Pardew excuse for Newcastle’s collapse last season.
“I am fairly convinced that we have a group that are very very motivated for the club this year.
“I feel we have nothing at the end of the year such as a European Championship or World Cup, or anything else to distract us from what we are about at this club – and that is Newcastle having a great season.
“I think most of the players, in fact 99% of the players, are spot on.”
As for further transfers, Alan Pardew has talked of prices being overinflated in the market but he’s watching it closely, though he claims again that Newcastle won’t pay more than they think a player is worth;
“We are very closely watching the market.
“There have been some strikers moving this week that for me, look overvalued, massively.
“That might be inflating the market and we won’t process a deal with inflated prices.
“I think the history of this club tells you that.”
