Alan Pardew ‘Performance level was pretty good but the score is what it is…’

6 years ago

Alan Pardew has claimed that the performance level of Newcastle United was ‘pretty good’ against Tottenham on Wednesday night.

This will come as a surprise to anybody who saw the match, because with one or two exceptions, United were rubbish.

Whether Pardew is hoping that most fans might not have seen the shambles at White Hart Lane and think that Newcastle were a bit unfortunate…

Is all a bit immaterial, Newcastle were a poor second best (at best) and just because we didn’t concede in the first twenty minutes isn’t something to cling onto.

Alan Pardew;

“Our back four was not quite as solid as it has looked, but if there was ever that cliche that goals win games, then this is it.

“Actually, I thought it was pretty even up to Jak Alnwick making a mistake.”

Unfortunate for players who put shift in;

“Our performance level was pretty good but the score is what it is.

“That is unfortunate for the players who put a shift in.”
