There’s No Way Alan Pardew Will Resign

There have been some reports out lately, that Alan Pardew may be thinking of  resigning from Newcastle.

Alan Pardew – nowhere near resigning at Newcastle

But those who are closest to him, like Assistant Manager John Carver, have said there’s no way he will quit Newcastle, and we have to think that’s very true.

Alan was let down badly once again by the Newcastle Board last week, after they failed to sign a new top striker, and that was a blow not only to Pardew, but to Newcastle fans too.

Fans were more than a little dismayed that Newcastle not only didn’t sign their number one priority, a top striker to replace Andy Carroll, but the club also had a zero net spend in transfer fees over the summer, after promising they would fully invest the £35M they received for Carroll last January.

Pardew had made it clear all throughout summer,  that he was very hopeful of signing a world-class striker, and once again the Board have not come through with the goods.

The reports coming out of the club have indicated Pardew was not happy at all with the Board, and he has privately met with them to let them know his feelings on this, and he refused to go to the press and explain it – since getting players through the door is not his job.

Derek LLambias was left to issue a statement, which was bland to the extreme, and said although the club didn’t sign a top striker they had brought some good players in, and that was true enough, as it turns out. He didn’t mention reinvesting that £35M.

There was a Ladbroke’s article out yesterday about the topic of Alan possibly resigning,  and these are the betting odds on who the next PL manager to resign or be sacked are at the moment:

Steve Kean 11/10
Neil Warnock 11/2
Arsene Wenger 6/1
Harry Redknapp 6/1
Steve Bruce 8/1
Alan Pardew 8/1

Not surprisingly, Steve Kean currently heads this list at 11/10, and with Blackburn having lost all three games this season, and his record last season, after taking over from the experienced Sam Allardyce, was also hopeless, and we don’t think he’ll last too much longer.

But we hope Steve remains in the job at least through September 24th, two weeks on Saturday, when Newcastle play Blackburn at St. James’ Park, and can capture all 3 points.

Even the odds of Alan leaving the club are fairly long at 8-1, although we’re surprised Sunderland’s Steve Bruce does not have lower odds than Alan’s.

This is the best job Alan Pardew will ever have in football, and he knows it, and the last thing he would do is walk away.

    Haha, dont even joke about that man captain!

    You’re right though, he’d be the best bet. Any manager worth his salt wouldnt want to work with MA and DL like.

    He must be p1ssed off like Captain, only reason his interviews have dried up recently I reckon.

    Can’t wait til he gives his next one but it probably wont be until just before the QPR match.

    Can’t wait to hear the answers to them questions in the Chronicle like, supposed to be out at the end of the week.

    Seems good man manager, needs some time to prove himself fully. He’s not going anywhere unless he really screws it up. Don’t see him as someone to walk out when the going gets tough. HWTL

    One more sale, like Colo, and he would have HAD to resign. Otherwise he has no cajones at all.

    Of the 6 managers tipped for the sack – are they having a brain storm or what?

    There is no way Spuds will sack ‘Arry Redcrapp and the thought of the Arse letting Whinger go is just about unthinkable!!

    Kean and Warnock could well be on dodgy ground but I hope Stevie Bruce survives long enough to let us give them another shafting first. He does go a lovely shade of purple after a toon game lol
