Pardew Gives Verdict On New Players

22 July 2011 10:31
Alan Pardew was pleased with debutant Sylvain Marveaux, who was playing his first game since November when the midfielder suffered a groin injury. Alan Pardew: “Marveaux hasn’t played for 10 months, but he showed good quality. He was unlucky not to score.” "Demba Ba also made his first appearance for the club and he looked a bit ring rusty, but he’s a big guy, and his sharpness will come later. “He is a diligent worker, but the quality he has he didn’t show last night. We’ve seen him before, so it will come to the fore. "Mehdi Abeid has a lot to learn and is in the process of learning the Premier League. “He got caught in possession, but he has quality there. He will get more chances.”
