Alan Pardew ‘We Think We Are In A Good Place’

7 years ago

Alan Pardew has yet again attempted to put a positive spin on Newcastle United’s current situation ahead of the Southampton match.

The United manager has claimed that his team are ‘In a good place’ because he has a strong squad and only Champions Manchester City have beaten the Magpies.

However, Pardew does acknowledge there is extra pressure on him because as he puts it ‘We wasn’t good enough at the back end of last year’.

Only wins can help Alan Pardew now though…

“I’m afraid it is part and parcel of the Premier League, we haven’t won a game yet , so the teams that haven’t won a game – the pressure is on the manager.

“More so on me because the back end of last year we wasn’t good enough, but I think we are good enough this year and I think our results will reflect that.

“In the short-term I think we have played well, we have only been beaten by Manchester City and they destroyed a couple of other teams.

“So in terms of where we are, we think we are in a good place – I think this squad is a very strong squad.”
