Press Association However, Pardew has known the ramifications of the financial model since he took his job in December 2010 and is determined to fulfil his part of the bargain. He said: “We are the eighth best team in the Premier League in the history of it and we want to get higher than that, so that’s what we have got to try to do. “We haven’t Qatar money, we haven’t got that sort of finance, so it is a slow-build, keep getting better, keep getting stronger, and hopefully our fans realise that.” However, Pardew is equally well aware that his current squad will enter something of a watershed this summer with strikers Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong only on loan at St James’ Park and several players either out of contract or approaching the point where the club will have to make a decision on whether to stick or twist. A significant proportion of the Magpies’ recruitment in recent seasons has been designed to strengthen the squad, but the manager admits he could be looking for up to three players to go straight into the team for the new campaign. Pardew said: “That’s probably fair to say. We are going to need at least two or three signings who come straight into that team or have a very, very good chance of starting. “I think we have got a summer where we are going to have to be a lot more active than we have been for a while because we are looking light in certain areas. “The strikers are an area we are going to have to address, for sure, and we are going to have to find a replacement for Cabaye, so that’s a big job in itself, let alone perhaps a couple of other positions that we might need. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has vowed to continue his mission to match steady growth off the pitch with progress on it. The Magpies this week announced financial figures which showed they recorded a profit after tax of £9.9million for the year ending June 2013. Those results confirmed the continued success of the club’s drive for self-sufficiency, although the policy adopted by owner Mike Ashley, who sanctioned the sale of key midfielder Yohan Cabaye in January without replacing him, remains a bone of contention with many fans. “The finances of the club are in good shape. As I have said before, we know we have got to do some work in the summer after losing Cabaye, we would like to think we will have to spend some of that this summer. “But the board has done well to get those figures and we look forward to the next period of, hopefully, our growth.” On the pitch, Newcastle head for Hull on Saturday having steadied the ship, if only just, with a last-gasp victory over Aston Villa last weekend which came courtesy of Remy’s 92nd-minute winner. That ended a run of three successive Barclays Premier League defeats and while it was unconvincing in some respects, it answered some of the criticism which has come the way of Pardew and his players in recent weeks. The 52-year-old said: “There were a couple of question marks about whether we cared enough, but that celebration when that goal went in showed you everything about how committed the players are. “But when you are beaten, sometimes it’s difficult, especially with the points total we have. ‘We don’t care’ – it’s an easy tag to put around us. “But I don’t think you could say that if you were here every day and saw the guys working, so I have no worries that we will be fully committed and hopefully get as many wins as we possibly can.” read more
Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditDENVER (AP) — Kyle Gibson pitched into the seventh inning for his first win with Texas and newly signed Derek Dietrich hit a two-out, three-run home run in the eighth as the Rangers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-4 Saturday night for their season-high fourth consecutive win.Shinn-Soo Choo had three hits and two RBIs and Jose Trevino also had three hits for the Rangers, who ensured their third straight series win. They moved a game above .500 for the first time since a season-opening win over Colorado in Texas.“I experienced it a little bit last year, where starting pitching brings consistency every day, but the offense brings confidence,” Gibson said of the Rangers’ recent strong play. “The offense is kind of rolling a little bit. The bullpen’s been doing a great job. The day-to-day confidence comes from scoring runs and they’ve done a good job doing it.” Associated Press “I think it has a lot to do with my routine and my preparation,” Dietrich said. “I prepare the same way each and every day. I did it all offseason, did it during the in between time. … The most successful hitters I’ve been around, stick to their routine and trust it.“I’ve played baseball a long time, it’s just rolling now.”In the eighth, he hit the first pitch he saw from Carlos Estevez, driving it the opposite way into the left field bleachers for his first homer with the Rangers.The Rockies broke on top on Wolters’ two-run double in the second inning but the Rangers generated plenty of baserunners against German Marquez (2-3) and managed to chip away at the lead despite a Colorado defense that turned three double plays.Choo’s RBI singles in the third and fifth innings pulled the Rangers into a 2-2 tie. Isiah Kiner-Falefa reached on a fielder’s choice for the first out in the fifth and Willie Calhoun followed by lining out to third baseman Nolan Arenado. But Arenado threw wide of first for an error trying to double up Kiner-Falefa, allowing Jose Trevino to score from third with a go-ahead run. Trevor Story had three hits and Tony Wolters had a two-run double for the Rockies, who have lost five of six since an 11-3 start. Charlie Blackmon broke out of an 0-11 run at the plate with an eighth inning triple, leaving his batting average at .438.“We came in with a fire,” Wolters said. “We want to win every series, but that’s pretty hard to do. We’re up for the challenge and I feel like we’re coming together. We’re not letting these losses kind of affect us. We’re just moving on. Next day.”Gibson (1-2), who signed with Texas in the offseason after spending the first 10 years of his career with Minnesota, went 6 1/3 innings and allowed two runs on seven hits. He struck out two and walked one in his first career appearance against the Rockies. Rafael Montero worked the ninth for his fifth save, allowing an unearned run after leadoff man Raimel Tapia reached on catcher’s interference.Dietrich, who hit a career-high 19 home runs for Cincinnati last season, joined the Rangers on a minor league deal Monday after being released by the Chicago Cubs a week ago. He was signed to a major league contract Tuesday and activated by the Rangers and has been making an impact ever since. Gibson, Dietrich lead Rangers to a 6-4 win over Rockies Marquez went six innings and allowed nine hits and three runs — two earned. He walked two and struck out three. REFLECTIONS ON A GEMThe complete-game victory by the Rangers’ Lance Lynn on Friday was just the eighth time in the history of hitter-friendly Coors Field in which two or fewer hits were allowed over a nine-inning game. Lynn, who improved to 3-0 with a 1.11 ERA on the season, was also the first opposing pitcher to go the distance at the park and limit the Rockies to two or fewer hits without issuing a walk. “It goes to show you how overpowering his fastball really is and how much life is on it,” teammate Todd Frazier said. “It’s fun to play behind him. He works quick, he’s got energy, he’s got passion.”TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: INF-OF Chris Owings missed a second consecutive game with a strained left hamstring. He left Wednesday’s game against Arizona early after sustaining the injury running out a groundout. August 15, 2020 UP NEXTRangers: LHP Kolby Allard (0-0, 1.00 ERA) is pitching off a career-high seven days between starts. He allowed two hits in five scoreless innings in his last outing against the Los Angeles Angels. Left-handed hitters are 0-5 with five strikeouts against him this season.Rockies: RHP Jon Gray (0-2, 6.41 ERA) was roughed up in his last outing against Arizona, giving up eight runs on 11 hits in 3 1-3 innings. But he has had success in interleague play, especially at Coors Field, where he’s 4-0 with a 1.85 ERA in six career games against AL teams.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports read more
