Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew again blasted critics after victory at QPR.
Pardew hit out at suggestions over the last month that his squad had been divided within the dressing room and was pleased with the spirit shown by his players.
"The accusations have been so ridiculous," he said.
"You don't get a draw at West Brom and West Ham and a win here today if you've got rifts going on.
"It's massive for north-east football that we are a Premier League club so I'm absolutely delighted for our fans and players."
