Alan Pardew: Has seen Newcastle climb into the top-half of the table

The Magpies took the fight to Tottenham Hotspur during the first half of their Premier League clash on Sunday, and were rewarded with Loic Remy's seventh goal of a productive loan spell.

They spent much of the second 45 minutes hanging on to that lead, but were rewarded for their bright opening with a 1-0 victory over a side harbouring top-four ambitions.

Success in north London came on the back of a 2-0 win over Chelsea in the north east the previous weekend, with Newcastle starting to show what they are capable of when in the right frame of mind.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle on the approach taken against two capital heavyweights: "Anybody who knows me will know I always expect to win. I have always been like that. I am a positive guy.

"On reflection, when I look back and think 'we have six points', I am going to be very happy because you would not expect to.

"I genuinely think we have been playing well.

"I said that before the Chelsea game and it has been proved again."

Newcastle have moved into ninth place in the Premier League table and will have the opportunity to cement a top-half standing after the international break with fixtures against Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.

Pardew added: "We find ourselves in a brilliant position with two home games coming up.

"We have put ourselves in a good position and now we need to build on it."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

I

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
