Pardew 'celebrates' Newcastle French Day: I went to French restaurant and copped indigestion!

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew felt their win over Southampton lived up to the pre-match billing.

It was French Day at St James' Park and there were three Gallic scorers - Morgan Schneiderlin for Saints and Moussa Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye for Le Toon.

Pards praised the club's themed afternoon as he joked: "It was a great idea because it took a little bit of tension out of the game.

"It certainly helped us. I went to a French restaurant last night, just to get in the mood. I suffered all night with indigestion, though!"
