Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has apologised to the Hull City player David Meyler for his involvement in a clash that saw the manager sent to the stands for bad behaviour. Newcastle were the recent visitors to the KC stadium in the Premier league match.
They managed a 4-1 win over the relegation threatened opposition to finally take some pressure off the club. Newcastle had managed three successive defeats before finally breaking the run with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend. They had to build on this win in order to sustain their position in the top half of the table.
Alan Pardew already spoke to the media about his January plans as the coach of Newcastle United said that it will be a fairly quiet month involving transfers but even with his statements, there still are a number of players that have been linked with Newcastle United.
Newcastle United has heightened their interest in Wilfried Zaha, the Manchester United winger, by opening dialogues to bring him in on loan, stated a leading United Kingdom based tabloid. Recent reports suggest that Wilfried's representatives have already met the Newcastle United officials to talk about the possibility of a 6 month contract.
While manager David Moyes is believed to be very keen on the suggestion of Wilfried getting 1st team football in English Premier League, the twenty year old has eliminated a come back to Crystal Palace, his former club.
Newcastle United suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at the hands of newly promoted Hull city at home during the weekend. It was not a result that manager Alan Pardew expected especially given that his team was coming into the match on the back of a good run of form.
Newcastle had a horrible transfer window in which they failed to get a number of transfer targets, while also having most of their star names linked with moves to other clubs. Pardew, though, has managed to get past all this and his team have started the season in a good way.
It has been a strange summer at Newcastle United following the arrival of Joe Kinnear as the director of football, which has undermined the authority of manager Alan Pardew.
However, Pardew has said that he will persuade the club as much as possible in order to bring in two more strikers before the end of the transfer window. Newcastle had a spectacular season only recently when they finished in fifth position, but the perils of Europa league football coupled with several injuries meant that they finished in the bottom half of the campaign last season.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that he is extremely confident that he will remain as the manager of the club next season after overseeing a very poor campaign. Newcastle were one of the surprising teams of last season as they almost managed to snatch a top four place at the end of the campaign.
However, several stars from last season have heavily underperformed this campaign. This coupled with the loss of players like Demba Ba has meant that Newcastle could only finish 16th in the table.
Newcastle United have found their next star in the form of the midfielder Moussa Sissoko according to the manager Alan Pardew. Newcastle brought in no less than five French players during the January transfer window – a decision that has been criticised by many including the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
Newcastle United will have to be patient in their search for a replacement for Demba Ba, who recently left for Chelsea in £ 7 million deal.
The Senegalese striker had a £ 7 million release clause in his contract, which led to rumours of a number of clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham being interested in his services. Due to the fact that Chelsea recently allowed Daniel Sturridge to leave the club for £ 12 million, they were left with only Fernando Torres up front. Due to the immediate need for a striker, the club has secured the signing of Demba Ba before anyone else.
The Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that he is extremely concerned about the recent form of the team in the league.
After impressing mightily in the Premier league last season, Newcastle United are finding it extremely hard to replicate the same form this time around. They finished in the fifth position last season narrowly missing out on the opportunity to play in the Champions League. However, this season, they find themselves closer to the relegation zone after a lot of defeats. They have also been unable to score goals as much as they did last season.
The Premier League is one of the toughest football leagues in the whole world with some of the best teams in the world competing for the same trophy. It is a long season with many games to play before the winner is finally celebrated and just with every competition there are many teams that just can’t seem to find their way to victory often enough to be at the top but they are good enough to stay out of the relegation zone. This limbo can sometimes be as bad as being at the bottom of the table as you often get forgotten about and no one sees you as a real threat when matched up with you.
