Pardew - 'We Gave A Good Account Of Ourselves'!

Last updated : 20 August 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

dPardew revealed that Taylor quickly apologised to his teammates for a challenge on Sergio Aguero, which he feels was petulant rather than malicious.

Alan Pardew: "I have to say I thought we gave a good account of ourselves up until the sending off.

"We'd threatened their goal, but the sending off made it a really difficult night for us and you don't want that on the first day.

"It was a silly challenge from Tayls, it was out of character for him, and then we had to work and grind in the second half, which we did.

"I just thought it was a silly action, and I can't really defend him on it, if I'm honest. I know he's a proper fella and he wouldn't mean to be malicious to the guy."

NU-MAD COMMENT - Taylor did what he did - and will miss three games because of it - but the first half was a SHAMBLES!

We had one shot the entire match, and to blame Taylor for the defeat is another case of Pardew blaming everyone but himself!

Taylor's sending off didn't help, and it was backs to the wall after that, but we were never in the match!
