Let's See If FA Cup Is Still Pardew's Priority!

At the start of the current campaign Alan Pardew shocked us all by saying: "Europe and the League Cup are at the bottom of my priorities - but I believe we can win the FA Cup."

Pardew will hold a roll call today before deciding on his line-up for Newcastle United’s crunch FA Cup trip to Brighton & Hove Albion.

As Geordie fans are desperate to see their side have a long run in the competition, Pardew is starting to have a re-think.

Despite him saying he "won't look at the league positions until March", Pardew’s team is engulfed in a relegation battle - whether he looks at the league or not!

It's no good putting your head in the ground when the shit starts flying. The facts are there, we are in trouble.

And I was gobsmacked when Pardew said today: "The fixture list hasn't been kind recently - Manchester United and Arsenal away."

What about West Ham and Swansea at home - Southampton, Fulham and Stoke away? Hardly the worst fixtures in the Premiership, and we lost the lot of them!

NINE DEFEATS IN ELEVEN GAMES! Do we blame the FA fixture list for everything?

New signing Mathieu Debuchy could make his debut on the south coast while Papiss Cisse, Gael Bigirimana, Mike Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini could also feature.

Alan Pardew: “We’ll have to see where we are today

“We’ve got two days recovery after Man United, Arsenal and Everton – three great teams. You have to say that.

“Everton are a great side. They have quality off the bench.

“Sammy and Bigi did well, but at the end of the day that little bit of experience was the difference.

“We had some key moments of the game that went against us – it was a soft free-kick for their (first) goal.

“It took the wind out of or sails just before half-time.

“In the second half we huffed and puffed a little bit – we certainly put in a shift – and I can’t fault the workrate.

“But we need quality and experience.

“Probably, that edged it for Everton. They had that on the pitch.”

"For my own ratings I'd give some eights (out of ten) for where some players are in their careers.

“I’m not hugely disappointed with the performance, I’m not. The result always hurts.”
