Alan Pardew: “Trust me, I want to win this game more than anyone.
“I’ve got a lot of friends who I love in Southampton.
“They were happy when they beat us (earlier in the season), but we’re a little bit stronger this time. Hopefully, we’ll win.”
"The dismissal was “unjust".:
“I’ve always had faith in my ability.
“I thought when I got the sack from Southampton it was unjust, and still to this day think that, like the manager who’s just gone (Adkins), if I’m honest.
“I ain’t bitter about it – it’s not going to eat me up – but I do want to win.”
