Alan Pardew ‘It starts to get boring and a bit repetitive…’

7 years ago

A first win in two months of Premier League football, meant Alan Pardew could at last ditch the ‘boring an repetitive’ excuses he and others at the club have been using all season.

The Newcastle manager admits that he has found it hard to look fans in the eye after the dismal start to the season but has still claimed that United deserved to win matches before the Leicester one.

Pardew’s hopes for a smoother run now without defeats could be an interesting one, considering it is [intlink id=”191″ type=”page”]Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool[/intlink] in the next three games.

Making excuses;

“We stand here and make excuses for what went on.

“It starts to get a bit boring and a bit repetitive, so it is nice to stand here and say we put our heart on the line.”

A step forward;

“We have had games at home that we should have won and games on the road that we should have won.

“I don’t care how the win come it just needed to come.

“We need to take that step forward now and not think this is it or that we’ve cracked it.”

This is just the start;

“This is just the start for us, to get up that league.

“It has been difficult to look fans in the eye when I have met them in the street.

“I have listened to their frustrations and complaints, it’s fair and I can’t say it is not, we should be winning more games than we are.”

A glass of wine and a smoother run;

“I will have a glass of wine and reflect on what has been a very stressful period for myself.

“Hopefully we can have a smoother run now in terms of being able to manage the football club without the additional pressures that defeats bring.”
