Pardew happy for Newcastle fans to dream of glory

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew wants fans to dare to dream after they went second on Saturday with victory over Everton.

Pardew is happy for expectations to be raised.

He said: "I don't want to dampen expectations and dampen the mood. I am not here for that.

"I want Newcastle fans to enjoy this and if they are dreaming of the Champions League, let them dream, it is fantastic, good luck to them. In the dressing room we have to be a little more conservative about our approach. We are a new team, we have done terrific and we go to the next game, that's it.

"But it is a great achievement for everyone at the club, regardless of the role they have here. Everybody believes in each other and trusts each other, from the staff who work at the stadium, to the training ground. It is brilliant to able to say we are unbeaten at this time and we should be very proud of that.

"I wasn't playing a game. Manchester City has not been mentioned yet, the focus was on Everton, but it will now and we are very much looking forward to it."
