We Can Win The Europa League - Pardew

Alan Pardew reckons we can win the Europa League.

Well, if we can overcome the Ukranian giants from Metalist, we can he says.

He also talked about the passion of their fans and the atmosphere they stirred by surrounding the stadium whilst Newcastle trained and the fact that it could affect us.

'This is perhaps where we lack a little bit of experience in Europe.' Said Pardew, speaking on NUFC.co.uk

'It's our first season back for a number of years and the atmosphere tomorrow will probably be the first time we really experience a hostile crowd in this competition.

'With all due respect, in the other times the opposition's crowd hasn't really played a part. I think tomorrow, it might well do and we need to be able to cope with that.

'But we have players - Yohan (Cabaye) in particular - who have played on the international stage and are used to that scenario.

'So I don't envisage a problem in 90 per cent of our group but one or two I'll be watching closely to see that they cope well with it.'


He went on.

'If I put my best team up against any team in this competition, I'd feel confident,' he said.

'I've not really had that opportunity but we're a lot stronger on Thursday and therefore if we get through this tie I think we have as good a chance as anybody else.'


I like a bit of confidence but the fans have been left feeling a bit short changed so far in how we've attacked this competition but if we do somehow survive this round, then we may yet give it the respect it deserves and play our strongest side till the end.

Let's hope so.
