Alan Pardew: "My future is very much here and I'm loving it at the moment.
"I haven't considered any other issue outside this football club and I won't.
"It's important for me that the players know I will be here trying to take this club forward.
"I see a lot of good things on the pitch.
"I think we can change tactics because we have different strengths which gives us that armoury and we haven't approached every game with the same gameplan.
"We have tweaked it and we will tweak it again for the FA Cup tie against Blackburn on Saturday.
"You need good players to do that and have a training ground with an environment where you can do it too."
