Harder to tell how much rotation/who the number 1 striker will be at Chelsea and even Man City.
I did that last season deciding not to stick him in for weeks and he kept scoring. I've had to change my stubborn ways because of his pre-season and I don't want to miss the opportunity again.
I can't see Swansea having the amazing season everyone expects based off last year and the first leg against Malmo. Time will only tell but it will definitely prove how much Pardew was to blame for our shocking season last term.
As a Newcastle fan I'm not having any NUFC players for the simple fact Pardew's tactics are ridiculous and he's so stuck in his ways to play piss poor players and good ones in the wrong position.
