Alan Pardew says there is more to football than just . errrr . football. Alan Pardew: “I have changed a lot of analytical stuff. I brought in two new analysts who put together reports about how our defence, our midfield and our attack are doing. "They look at how our opposition are doing, plus our scouting. “We have four analysts now and we only had two. We have John Carver here, whose brief is to ensure he keeps on top of our attacking side of things. I concentrate on the defence and the organisation of the team. “That, in a nutshell, is the changes I have made. I’ve also used some of the stats that we get more than perhaps this club did in the past."
