Great News – Pardew Is Premier League Manager Of The Season


Really great news today that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been named Barclays Manager of the Season.

Alan Pardew – magnificent first season on Tyenside

It’s the very first time that a Newcastle manager has ever received the award, and it’s a wonderful achievement by the Newcastle manager, who has guided the Magpies to 5th place in the league and only 2 points out of 3rd place.

Nobody would have thought that Newcastle would be anywhere near the top five this season, and some were even thinking we may be fighting relegation, after we had lost Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan, Jose Enrique and Joey Barton last year, four of Newcastle’s best players.

Alan Pardew has worked hard to bring in some top players for Newcastle, since he arrived in December of 2010, and they include Ben Arfa, Demba Ba, Davide Santon, Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse, all of whom are first team starters for the Magpies and have been terrific buys.

And Pardew, who is a workaholic in his planning and leaves nothing to chance, seems to have brought the very best out of his players, and the way he has coached Ben Arfa back from a terrible injury to to his mercurial best,  has been brilliant man-management by the Wimbledon-born coach.

Alan has also brought 21 year-old Davide Santon along excellently in his first season in England, and the Italian International is now a regular starter and showing what a great player he can become on Tyneside.

And Pardew has even brought out the very best in Brazilian Perchinho, better known as James Perch who in fact – believe it or not – was born in Mansfield.

It’s a tremendous achievement and honor for Alan Pardew to win this award, and it also reflects so well on Newcastle United, and the way the club has surged back to a top club in England this season.

And it will no doubt help Newcastle in their transfer business this summer, as good players will want to come to Newcastle even more now.

This is even more upbeat and positive news for Newcastle, and we’re not sure just how much more we can take. 😀

Howay The Lads!!

    Well done Alan Pardew and his Black and White Army.
    Glad u proved all the doubters SO, SO wrong at the beginning.
    And glad u managed to shut up those who wanted you out.

    AP is a mile above Rodgers and Lambert. They never stood a chance.

    Yeah effing briiliant. This has got to help motivate the lads for Everton. I think they should arrive an hour early like they did before Chelsea. Seemed to work then.

    Fully deserved! Got the best out of the players, changed formation atleast 3 times during the season, man-management of players has been spot on, subs have been at the right time, and his transfers have been the best i can ever remember!

    While we are back on footy related I just want to add that one thing that qualifies him for Manager of the Season is the fact we didn’t want him to be the manager in the first place. Kudos for being able to convert the Geordie faithful. We are a picky lot, harder to turn around than a fat lass at a free buffet.

    Fantastic news, although we all knew/expected it was going to happen, he’s had a tremendous season, all the hard work and attention to detail really showing through.

    On a different subject, I’ve always heard that Tiote sends a lot of his pay packet back to his family in Africa, and I never doubted it. But today I was in lloyds tsb in Jesmond and saw Cheick. He discreetly said to the Clerk, “I want to withdraw 89,000 from this account to take to my country” to which she said “in cash?” and he said “yes, I want it all in cash”.

    Nice bloke.

    Well done Pards. Glad to see him getting the recognition he deserves – he did it the proper way, no huge money involved, excellent players being bought and great performances (and some terrible ones!)

    Here’s the link for the online feed for Radio Newcastle, Pards on in a few minutes!

    Great news, would of been a joke if Rodgers got it at 12th, pre-season drop candidates or not. Some put us up as favourites for relegation too before the season!
