Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits he needs funds to strengthen in the summer as it is “too easy” to pick his starting XI.

Pardew feels he needs more competition for place at St James’ Park and the Magpies boss is desperate to bring in a few new faces in the summer.

Owner Mike Ashley has promised to reinvest the £35million raised from the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool in January back into the squad and Pardew is keen to bolster his options ahead of next season.

He told the Daily Mirror: “I don’t want to necessarily increase the size of the squad too much, but I do want to increase the competition for places.

“At times, we lack that. In terms of the starting XI, most Newcastle fans would pick the same side – and that’s a worry for me as a manager.

“Why isn’t there more competition? There should be more questions for me to answer at a club this size.

“We should be sitting here and we could all come up with a different formation and a different team.

“It’s too easy to pick the team and we are paying the cost of that now, with the injuries. The best players have played every week.”

Midfielder Stephen Ireland is currently on loan at Newcastle and Pardew has already revealed he could try and make the move permanent in the summer.

Ireland is yet to feature since making the switch to St James’ Park but Pardew has stated he still has enough time between now and the end of the season to impress and earn a permanent move.

However, a striker will probably be Pardew’s number one priority as the club did not manage to bring in a replacement for Carroll following his move to Liverpool on deadline day in January.

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

People keep writing that FCB promised to put the 35m "into the squad," but my recollection is that he. Was quoted as saying he'd put it "into the club.". I'm worried that there's a big difference between the squad and the club.

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

I certainly don't think he's coming across as an Ashley puppet like some have labelled him

He's either going to get his wish and improve the squad or he's gonna be made to look like a right mug if he gets fuck all to spend

He's definitely not against putting public pressure on the fat controller though

I'm naive enough to think he never thought Carroll would put in a transfer request

if i were parcunt,..or if you were parcunt,..the best thing would have been to say FUCK ALL!!!,..that would have been more sensible.

Perhaps i could see what a big mistake he was making, after KK was stitched up over Milner.

ie,..don`t trust ashley, cos he will make you look like a dipstick

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

saying fuck all dosn't keep the fans happy either

I very much doubt he set himself up to look like a mug......I believe he thought Carrol would still be here until the Summer at least

i for one would have been much happier if he`d said "yes he may be sold,..thats up to the powers that be...!!",..that kind of thing

..rather than.."for the last time,..Andy Carroll is going NOWHERE..!!"

Then if Carroll is sold,..it makes him look like a muppet, which is not good, considering he is already trying to build bridges with a lot of fans who were not happy with the treatment of chriswho, and the appointment of parcunt No

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

yes but carrolls gone mate!!!,..he`s out of it, fuck does he care if we think he`s a muppet or not!!

Difference is that Parcunts still here,..he made a tit of himself, then as you say bleated on about not expecting carroll to hand in a transfer request blah blah!!

Most managers would be up in Lambsarse office pointing the finger, yelling " you made me look like a fuckin doofus by selling carrol you fuckin bastards...!!!"

But alas,..surprise surprise,..parcunt just gets on with it, like a good little lamb,..water under the bridge, all forgotten, not a problem

It was in reference to your......"Most managers would be up in Lambsarse office pointing the finger, yelling " you made me look like a fuckin doofus by selling carrol you fuckin bastards...!!!"...comment

I don't think that would be the case under the same circumstances as the Carroll deal....£35 mil for a £10 mill and 90 grand a week for a 30 grand a week player

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

It was good business,...I`m not saying it was a bad deal, carrolls worth nowhere near £35m.

But it still doesn`t get away from the fact that parcunt made himself look like a total twit by constantly broadcasting to the world that Carroll was not for sale!!

Like i said,..If he had done his homework properly, and seen what ashley had done to KK over the sale of Milner (who also at that particular time was not worth £12m),..he would have seen the sense in just keeping his gob shut!!

Keegan was prepared to walk because he was lied to over Milner,...we all knew that parcunt would do nowt of the sort

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

i said it was good business,..i`m not denying that.

Parcunts handling of it was wrong though.,,,..any manager working under lambsarse and ashley must be aware (like we all are), that they tell a pack of fuckin lies,..if parcunt knew that carroll would be sold if the price was right, he should have steered clear of commenting on the issue altogether

put it this way mac,..even with a couple of days left of the transfer window,..i still thought that carroll would be sold!!,..there you are, i`ve said it.

But parcunt was still adamant that he would`nt be sold,..even then No,...i knew more than him, just purely instinctively

RE: Pardew – “”It’s too easy to pick the team”

If it was simply a case of us accepting an offer....why did he put a transfer request in?


And I don't want to hear any...'cos he was forced to' malarky.......he put in a transfer request because he simply didn't want to turn down 90 grand a week........luckily Liverpool had a stupid amount of money to spunk, which made the deal worth while for us

From what we can gather the offer from the bindippers,..or the wages they were prepared to pay of £80k a week led to Carrols agent advising him to demand a new contract for £80k a week, if it was turned down he should hand in a transfer request.

He wasn`t forced to hand in a transfer request,..just advised to do so by his agent,..there is a difference.

As for him being forced to hand in a transfer request by ashley/lambsarse,..no he probably wasn`t, but if they weren`t prepared to match the wages offered by liverpool, then it was clear that he woud leave,..i doubt if they worked too hard to reach a compromise
