Alan Pardew ‘This Newcastle team is more geared up for Cup football’
Since Newcastle United started to win some matches, Alan Pardew’s claims during interviews haven’t tended to be quite as ridiculous or….inaccurate.
However, he still lets the odd one slip out.
“I think this Newcastle team is more geared up for Cup football.”
What exactly that means I’m not quite sure, what is the difference between playing in the Premier League and playing in the Cup? How is a different starting eleven better suited to cup games as compared to league ones?
Yes Newcastle have won some cup games but those positive results have pretty much come along as part of a better run of form in the league as well.
Alan Pardew continued;
“I think that helps but we have played very very well and been a bit of a turnaround in our season, the cup competition.
“In terms of the result at Crystal Palace which was much needed and then at Manchester City we put a result in that I don’t think anybody expected.”
Players nobody had heard of;
“With three or four of those players who I don’t think anybody had heard of, they made a name for themselves and they’ve been an asset to our squad.”
