Alan Pardew says that flair and quality can come through next

7 years ago

After making it six wins out of six, Alan Pardew was happy to admit that Newcastle don’t ‘…play much great possession football’ but credits his team with real belief and the pressure they are putting on the opposition.

However, the United manager says that if his side keep on working as hard as they have been, then the flair and quality will also start to show.

The winning run has been largely down to graft rather than top quality possession football as Pardew points out himself, though there have been some moments of inspiration such as Ayoze Perez’ goal at the Hawthorns.

The player that we are all still waiting to see step up to Premier League level is Remy Cabella who had another indifferent day on Saturday against QPR, remaining a peripheral figure in the team. If he can start showing his French form then that would go a long way to providing the quality and flair.

Though the truth of course for any set of fans is a winning tea, way ahead of any other factor, though doing it with a little bit of style would be even better..

“It’s down to the application of the staff, the belief that we have and more importantly, the players who have to perform.

“I have to be honest, I thought we were terrific.”

Flair and quality can come through;

“We don’t play much great possession football, we are at you straight away – but the goal was a well crafted goal and probably our best team goal of the season.

“Everybody knows now that going forward, if we work as hard as we have been, flair can come through, quality to come through and you win games.
