Pardew Wants Backing From Toon Army!

26 November 2012 11:49
Alan Pardew pleaded with Newcastle United's Toon Army to stick with his struggling troops.

Pardew pulled no punches after an entirely forgettable afternoon on the South Coast when Southampton could have won 6-0.

But Newcastle’s 2,019-strong travelling support didn’t turn on the players during or after the match.

Alan Pardew: “We’re going to have to ride this period out – there’s no doubt about that.

“I think the fans are going to be important to us – we don’t want to lose them. We’re not in that place – we wouldn’t be able to cope with us.

“It’s a long journey.

“We saw a couple of buses on the way down.

“It’s a bloody long way. It’s a bloody long way to see a performance where we got beat with a bit to spare.

“As the manager and players, we’re going to have to accept the criticism."
