... the Champions League after a 10-year absence in his pre-match Press conference, despite saying yesterday "I am building a team for the Champions League".
And asked about Yohan Cabaye’s interview, and captain Fabricio Coloccini’s insistence last week that he still wanted to join Argentinian club San Lorenzo, Pardew said he felt they answered “loaded” questions.
Despite Cabaye going on STRIKE at the start of the season; and Colo slapping in a TRANSFER REQUEST last January; the Newcastle manager thinks we (the fans) are thick enough to believe the two players have been "mis-quoted".
Alan Pardew: “It’s very difficult to be asked questions and get it perfect.
“I’ve made many mistakes with questions.
“Players get tripped up. Come on, (Cabaye) wants to play in the Champions League. I want to manage in the Champions League.
“Of course, if you’re asked that question, you’re going to answer it one way. You’re not going to say you like playing for fifth or sixth place in the Premier League.
“We’re all trying to achieve our ultimate dream of winning trophies and playing in the Champions League.”
He has already banned the local media - Chronicle, Journal and Sunday Sun - from asking questions ... who's next?
Newcastle United have to stick the manager in front of the cameras pre-match and post-match - that's the rules of the Premier League!
Questions are only "loaded" when you fire them.
If he hasn't got the right answers why the hell is he in the job?
