Alan Pardew ‘We’ve just won a game – not the World Cup’

6 years ago

Alan Pardew has claimed that he is trying to keep everybody’s feet on the ground, saying that after the Manchester City win he didn’t skip into the training ground acting like Newcastle had won the World Cup.

Though reading some of the journalists friendly to Pardew/Ashley, you may have got that impression…

Instead, the Newcastle manager says that eight thirty on Thursday morning he was purely focused on bringing down Liverpool in the next match.

Pardew talking of treating defeat and victory the same way and just getting on with his job.

One thing with our manager is that he can certainly talk a good game.

Let’s hope that he is skipping into training on Monday as though Newcastle have just won the World Cup – after defeating Liverpool this afternoon.

We’ve just won a game;

“You have to be strong and be consistent with your players, whether you are going through a difficult time or you are going through a really good time.

“I can’t go bounding in all happy and excited as though we have won the World Cup, we’ve just won a game.”

Just getting on with the job;

“It is the same when you get beat, you have to have a consistency of what you are about. Planning for Liverpool from half past eight this (Thursday) morning and that is how we work.

“Everybody can say what they want in the background but we have to ignore all that and get on with the job.”
