But wouldn't it be a laugh to finish above Andy Carroll and Jose Enrique who left to BETTER themselves.

Alan Pardew: "The more it goes and the closer it gets to the end. I have said all along, that last six games, if we can find ourselves in with a shout, there might be less pressure on us, so we could make an impact.

"We are, after 21 games, the sixth best team, and that's what we can try to improve on.

"It would be an absolute marvel if we finished sixth or fifth, but we are going to try, and see where it takes us.

"Forget about long term, this season, they are in our sights, as much as we are in the sights of Aston Villa and Everton, who are not that far behind.

"You have constantly got to be on your guard, but you can't afford not to dream and aim for higher, otherwise where you fall is going to be considerably lower.

"We are aiming for them and we will see where we go.

"We are trying to compete against teams who are way above us financially - and I am not talking about Manchester United, I am talking about Liverpool.

"It's a huge step we are trying to bridge."
