Surpassing that though was the reaction of the normally cool as a cucumber and unflappable Alan Pardew, the manager hurdling the advertising hoardings and also launching himself into the crowd. I defy anybody not to smile when they see Alan Pardew enjoying the moment.
United dug deep today and kept on going, you could see a number of players were running on empty but Alan Pardew’s options were so limited. Which player do you credit the most with getting us over the line today?
To finish, Papiss take a bow. That swivel, dink over the top and falling to the ground finish had me going bonkers today. Celebrating with the fans is always a favourite of mine and I love seeing the players hot foot it into the crowd, but Alan ‘the Silver Fox’ Pardew, your reaction was next level good sir! By far my favourite celebration of the year!
A few tweaks are needed but I trust Pardew to bring in an essential win to take the pressure off the 5under1and game. What we need now are the supporters to stop worrying about everyone else and believe in this team!
Duff struggled to lumber up the left wing for three seasons after a £5 million transfer from Chelsea which we thought was great business at the time, but in reality was just money frittered away on another overpaid, under-achiever who only managed 5 goals in his time here, six if you include the own goal that sent us down.
