He's such an important player for us with Siem (de Jong) out, and I don't think up until now he has really produced a performance which warrants his tag, the money we have spent."But I really felt he showed the character, he showed the quality that really buoyed me, if I am honest, that has buoyed me a little bit going into the next game."Pardew has the advantage of his side not playing again in the league until they head for Stoke next Monday evening, although he is likely to make several changes in addition to those enforced upon him.It will be the second time the sides have met already this season with substitute Wilfried Zaha's injury-time strike at St James' Park on August 30 securing a point for Warnock's men from a game in which they had twice led before going 3-2 down with normal time almost up
