Alan Pardew: Disallowed goals tough to take for Newcastle boss

Alan Pardew: Disallowed goals tough to take for Newcastle boss

The first leg of their last 32 clash ended goalless, leaving the tie well balanced for when the teams meet again next week.

Papiss Cisse was denied twice - once in each half - although TV replays show that Senegalese striker may well have onside for both.

A disappointed Pardew said: "Both 'goals' were goals. When you see the replays, you can see that.

"The first one, I have to say, I was a little bit undecided from where I stood, but the second one I thought was a definite goal.

"It's tough to take because in these games, those margins are the difference.

"He (Cisse) could have two goals to his name as well if the decisions had gone his way.

"When you get decisions like that going against you, it puts fire in your belly.

"We came off the pitch very, very disappointed with those decisions and we are going to take that into the second leg."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.

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.
