Alan Pardew indicated he will have limited funds to play with again this summer compared to some of Newcastle United’s Premier League rivals

 

Alan Pardew has warned the Toon Army the revamp of Newcastle United will be a “slow build”.

 

The Magpies manager has indicated he will have limited funds to play with again this summer compared to some of United’s Premier League rivals.

 

Newcastle have questioned the level of ambition at St James’ Park with the 18-month anniversary of the club’s last permanent cash signing approaching at the start of the summer window.

 

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s encounter with Hull City, Pardew said: “We do not have Qatar money.

 

“We do not have that sort of finance, so it is a slow-build, keep getting better, keep getting stronger.

 

“Hopefully, our fans realise that.”

 

As reported in the Chronicle last week, there could be up to 10 player departures this summer. United have Clement Grenier of Lyon at the top of their target list.

 

Yet Pardew has confessed players who are considered as first-team material will be needed when the window swings back open for business in the summer.

 

He added “We are going to need at least two or three signings who come straight into that team or have a very, very good chance of starting.

 

“I think we have a summer where we are going to have to be a lot more active than we have been for a while because we are looking light in certain areas.”

 

When asked to specify which areas need improving most Pardew said: “The strikers are an area we are going to have to address, for sure, and we are going to have to find a replacement for Cabaye, so that is a big job in itself - let alone perhaps two other positions that we might need.”

 

Pardew was also keen to trumpet the club’s positive set of annual financial figures this week after profits of £9.9million were announced.

 

The former West Ham boss said: “The finances of the club are in good shape.

 

“As I have said before, we know we have to do some work in the summer after losing Cabaye and we would like to think we will have to spend some of that this summer.

 

“The board has done well to get those figures and we look forward to the next period of, hopefully, our growth.”

 

Going into the clash with Hull tomorrow, Pardew reacted to claims some of his players do not care enough to wear the black and white shirt.

 

He added: “There were question marks about whether we cared enough, but that celebration when that goal went in showed you everything about how committed the players are.

 

“When you are beaten, sometimes it is difficult, especially with the points total we have. ‘We don’t care’ - it is an easy tag to put around us.

 

“I don’t think you could say that if you were here every day and saw the guys working, so I have no worries we will be fully committed.”

Shut your irrelevant noise you tremendous cunt.

It is a myth that you have years to rebuild sides. Good players you already have leave, get old/shitter or injured.

 

Selling Cabaye was not the actions of a side who are rebuilding. He could have been here for years to come and was our best player.

 

I don't hate Pardew because I don't believe any of us would turn down his salary for the relatively small (to him) compromises he has to make.

 

Football is basically shit now and while I still like it when we win, there's nothing more to it than hoping you get bought by Arabs.

Think that's fair comment.

Same lines they trot out every year, the "2 to 3 in" and "we're not Man City" type line. It's all well and good but the fact is we HAVE to spend this year as due to their planning we'll be one of the favorites to go down if we have another summer of nowt.

Getting the excuses in early tbh. Happens every other month.

To be fair to him, he does say "at least 2-3". If you ask me, we'll be needing at least 4-5 especially if Remy goes.

I'll eat your hat if Taylor is benched in favour of MYM.

 

Never going to happen. More chance of me being voted Poster of the Year.

It's only February mate.

Aye, we're going to need a good amount in with all the players we know are leaving, never mind if we sell anyone.

I'm just a bit tired of the same attempts to "lower expectations" every window with the we're not Man city/Chelsea etc, no ones expecting mental money to be splashed but some would do.

I think they want to lower expectations so far that we're relieved when St James's Park is turned into affordable housing.
