Alan Pardew ‘We Have Known Every Transfer That Has Gone Through This Summer’
The weird and wonderful world of Alan Pardew continues, with the Newcastle United manager happy to feed the press with all kinds of claims.
The trouble is that Pardew often forgets that what he says now, then makes supporters wonder even more about what went before.
The manager claims that the club have been ‘on our toes‘ in the summer transfer window and goes on to claim that this means ‘we have known every transfer that has gone through (this summer)’.
This attention to detail is heartening to hear, but then the only conclusion I can draw as to why the club wasn’t on its toes in the previous 18 months, was because Mike Ashley had no intention of buying anybody.
Likewise, what interest would they have had in knowing about ‘every transfer’ that was going through, if there was no money put forward by Ashley to buy anybody?
“We have to stay on our toes in the transfer market, we have to be alert to the possibility of a quality player becoming available.
“Having said that, it would have to fit into our financial strategy.
“That’s where we are really, watching the market.
“We have done very very well in terms of that this year, we have been on our toes, we have known every transfer that has gone through.”
