We all know he does not want to return to the Europa League, which is the main reason why he is not on the same wavelength as the supporters, and it doesn't seem he believes they will do it.

Alan Pardew (talking to the Chronicle): “It is a different squad. It has not got the experience of that team.

“Possession was the key to that team and this is slightly different.

"We can still win games not controlling the game in terms of possession. We have some real assets in the team in terms of pace and exuberance.

“Both teams had a good defence. We were quite tight that year and we have tightened up this year, which has been the difference.”
