Newcastle boss Pardew admits "mixed emotions" over Euro progress

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits mixed emotions over their Europa League participation.

Toon have qualified for the next phase of the competition.

But Pardew says: "I have mixed feelings about the competition. The Europa League format makes it difficult for a Premier League team, there's no doubt about that. Thursday to Sunday is too tough at this level. The Thursday night is probably the bigger problem. We recovered on Friday and will still be recovering on Saturday."
