'Joey had felt his thigh a little bit'
Alan Pardew has been giving us his reactions to yesterday’s draw between Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers.

It was a game I felt we should have won both from the outset and after watching the first half, but once we’d gone down to 10 players I was happy to settle for the point.

The ref came in for some stick from the fans and that’s reflected a bit in Pardew’s comments below although, to be fair, Bolton haven’t been pushovers this season and that’s reflected in their reasonably healthy league position.

Alan Pardew first talked about Ryan Taylor’s tackle (oh I say missus):

It wasn’t high, but it was late and with that kind of take off you’re going to get sent off in this day and age.

If I go back 10 years the boy isn’t getting sent off. He might not even get a booking.

Unfortunately for Ryan he had a bad touch and tried to make up for it, but made a second mistake by going in with too much venom.

He’s not got a malicious bone in him and I’m genuinely disappointed. He just knew he had to make up for his bad touch and in doing so was over zealous and got himself sent off.

There will be no punishment from me on that. I don’t think he meant to harm the player in any shape or form.(more…)
