Alan Pardew ‘Mid-Table Would Be A Good Season’

7 years ago

Alan Pardew has only just stated on Sky Sports News that 48 points would represent a ‘good season’ for Newcastle United

The manager saying;

“The average for Newcastle United over the last ten years in the Premiership is 48 points, I think if we can get that or anything above that, I think it will be a good season for us.

“At this stage of the season, like all clubs, we dream higher than that.”

Now what the hell is going on here?

One minute it`s talk of Champions League…then Europe…then top 8…then top ten and now…mid-table mediocrity.

With the way other teams have strengthened we will be just outside the bottom 3 with an aim of 48 points.

The way his story changes, players and fans alike must wonder why they have signed up/renewed season tickets.

Everyone who did not renew their season tickets has been vindicated by this statement from a man who doesn`t know what he is saying day in day out, or who is reading from a card written by one of Ashley`s other puppets.

To come out with a statement like that proves to all of us that they won’t be trying for the highest spot they could achieve and that most of all, with nothing said about a change of intentions in the Cups, this could be a season like the last one.

Look at Debuchy for Arsenal – 1 game, 1 win and a trophy and winners medal. No wonder we can’t keep our best players, or sign top notch players with our targets refusing to join us.

My heart bleeds for the players who want to win things and those fans who have again paid good money only to hear what the plans are. It’s like paying for a 5* holiday in Mauritius and then ending up in a 2 berth caravan in Berwick (nowt wrong with Berwick BTW).

The mind boggles when it comes to statements like this, a few days before the season kicks off.

I`m  not a happy man at this moment in time, no doubt there will be a lot of you out there in the same frame of mind.

Plus if any of our target players have heard this then they will not want to be part of it.

I wouldn`t blame them either.
