Daryl Janmaat wants to party like it’s 1969

6 years ago

Daryl Janmaat wants to party like it is 1969, the full-back acknowledging the opportunity for United to win their first trophy in 45 years.

The Dutch international saying it would be a ‘great party’, though I doubt he realises just how mad it would be if this miracle happens.

With all the early season turmoil both on and off the pitch at St.James’ Park, the League Cup has kind of crept up on us but if United somehow won for the first time at City in fourteen years, then remarkably Newcastle would find themselves in the last eight.

The old chestnut of a lack of trying to win Cups thanks to weakened teams has also been overshadowed by the NUFC chaos this season, though tonight it will be very interesting to see what Alan Pardew picks compared to [intlink id=”49493″ type=”post”]this predicted starting eleven featured on here yesterday[/intlink].


“It is a prize and Newcastle have not won one since 1969.

“It would be a great party if we won a prize, the fans want that very much.”

We have a chance;

“City have a big squad, even their second team is very good. It will be a tough game but if we play like we did in the second half, then of course we have a chance.”

‘We want Pardew’?

“If you lose games then it (Pardew being under pressure) is normal but I now expect the pressure to ease on him.

“Two wins in a row after a draw has been very good for us, but we still have to improve, and now we have confidence to do that.

“The manager was under a lot of pressure, so it’s nice that we have given him those points.

“The pressure has eased and we want him as the manager.”

Game of two halves;

“After the first half he (Pardew) was angry and said ‘if you play like that you can’t win games’. Then afterwards, he was very passionate and said ‘if you play like that you will win games’.”
