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.
The Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has praised the Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney by saying that he is the difference between Manchester United being a top two club and a top four club. The former Everton striker joined Manchester United back in 2004 for a world record fee of £ 30 million for a teenager.
The Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that he is confident that his team can recover from the 2-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Chelsea during the weekend. Chelsea have made a great start to the season after winning the opening three matches.
The Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that he is certainly not worried about the lack of arrivals at St James's Park in the summer, though the team are odds on to land old-boy Andy Carroll according to the Liverpool news website.
Newcastle United need to have an intense winning mentality next season if they are to improve on the fifth place finish that they achieved last season according to defender Mike Williamson.
It’s most perturbing to be a Englishman this summer. After years of watching teams packed with dormant talent performing wildly below their potential, I don’t really know what to make of this lot.
They’re not really very good at football, but they do seem to try hard and that’s all I’ve ever asked as a supporter. It’s actually a lot like watching Leyton Orient, this.
Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini has said that he is hoping that the club can replicate the success they have had the last season in the next season as well. It has been a tremendous season for Newcastle United, as they very nearly secured a place in the top four.
It would have been unthinkable a few seasons ago when they were relegated to the Championship. However, diligent transfer policy coupled with a great manager has transformed their fortunes in recent times. The arrival of Cisse in the January transfer window almost propelled them to the top four finish.
