Alan Pardew ‘I Really Hope We Can Live Up To What Newcastle United Represents’
Alan Pardew has stated that he and everybody else at Newcastle United, can ‘…live up to what this club represents’.
The manager claims that he is looking at attacking football and decent performances being on the NUFC menu in the coming season.
Speaking after the win over Real Sociedad to nufc tv (though embarrassingly [intlink id=”45925″ type=”post”]Mike Ashley refused to allow Pardew, or his players, to speak to journalists[/intlink] who hadn’t paid for the privilege of asking questions), Pardew claims that Newcastle now have the attacking flair to stop the opposition dictating play.
Let’s hope Pardew is proved right, this is his assessment after that ninety minutes against Sociedad;
“I really hope we can live up to what this club represents, in terms of attacking football and performances.
“It is always good to win, we pushed the second half. The first half we was nervous, the new players didn’t know whether to step in and put pressure on – but we sorted that out at half-time and wouldn’t let them play.
“We are trying to control the game a little bit more but we can only do that if you have got offensive flair in the team – because if you let teams get set, then you need to be good enough to open them up, which we are this year.
“The crowd were great and we look forward to our first game.”
