Say It Aint So – Alan Pardew Odds-On Favorite At Newcastle

Alan Pardew got just 7 votes in our poll last night for Newcastle manager – out of around 1500 votes cast and he is now  odds-on favorite with SkyBet to get the job.

Alan Pardew – 7 votes in 1500 but he’s odds on favorite?

Alan Curbishley got 22 votes in the same poll and he is 3rd favorite at 10-1, with Martin Jol second favorite at 7-2.

Can somebody please wake me up from this nightmare.

    Scary, thought Mike Ash**e wanted to move the club forward.. hard to belive that Pardew would be the one but the bookies arent stupid, who sought that they would have right about that our almighty Chris was about to get the boot?

    According to Sky Bets the next permanent manager of NUFC is at 8th place to be the next Manager sacked. Sort of confirms Pardew as our next manager.

    GeordieGerman i thought he would have already been installed as favourite to be sacked.

    If Pardew is appointed he will have lost the dressing room before he even starts.

    Shot Bru, that will happen when and if he is announced as manager. But the odds will be dropping now. I have heard that there are sounds of moaning and sucking coming out of Ashley’s office. Must be JFK asking for his job back.

    Even we got 100,000 votes for this poll. Pardew will not get more than 100. That’s fact !

    but if 1 of 100 vote is from Mike Ashley, he will be our next manager.

    Poor, not good enough…

    Pardew is a Championship Manager at best and should probably consider positions in League one, he’s had a few years in the game now and his record is terrible, he’s done ok with Southampton the past disasters at Charlton and West Ham confirm his ability as a Premiership Relegation Manager…

    I feel sorry for the players right now, the last 16 Months have been a real battle for them and turned boys into men, and now they have to put up with this shit again, relegation is a real fear for me now…

    This is terrible. I’m a better manager than Alan Pardew. On my manager mode on fifa i won the premiere league, league cup, fa cup and champions league in my second season as the toon. Clearly i’m the man for the job!!

    We hate Ashley end of he deserves *************. I would rather Lee Clarke come in and for the club to support him for the next 4/5 years what I can see happening though is we get pardew in, he lasts 6 months then we get another mug in so on and so on

    Pardew got sacked from Southampton coz he was

    O’Neill wont come, he wouldnt be able to work with Ashley.

    Shearer – No thanks.

    JFK – No Thanks.

    Jol – Only true contender in my eyes.

    if shearer gets the job its a joke. his only exeprience was his 8 games before relegation time and we all know how that went.
    If pardrew gets it it will be the last time i pay any money to see newcastle.
    Martin Jol would probably keep us but if we could get O’Neill we might be in with a chance of a top half finish.

    shearer wouldnt take the job until ma is gone and Oneill would laugh at the fat bastard.
    Pardew has been around today apparently, he will be the first manager in history to be boo’ed when he is unveiled on Sat!

    Well I am going to put another name forward who might be worth a fiver at 100/1. That name is Glen Hoddle. Dont get me wrong its not who I want but just trying to think how Mr Ashley might be thinking. He has experience here and abroad and also for England. Also if you were a Spuds fan like Ashly, then who would be your boyhood hero. Food for thought!!

    This is a grim time.

    Pardew I can’t believe he’s being seriously considered.

    But the bookies are rarely wrong. Especially when the favourite is so odds on.

    Partpoo we don’t want you.

    Did Ashley tell Hughton he was sacked when he flew into Benton last week?

    Or did the creep shake Hughton’s hand and pretend all was well …
