Alan Pardew And Staff To Get New Deals At Newcastle?

The Graham Carr interviews, since the 67 year-old Corbridge-born Chief Scout was given a new eight year deal to stay at Newcastle on Thursday, have reflected extremely well on the the way Newcastle are run these days.

Alan Pardew – could be getting new deal

Not only is Newcastle now financially stable, and the club are only spending what they are bringing in, which future UEFA Financial Fair Rules will dictate for all European clubs, but good relationships seem to exist between those running the club.

It seems that owner Mike Ashley is after stability at Newcastle, and may want to tie down other non playing staff, like Alan Pardew and his staff,  to longer term deals.

It will depend somewhat on what Alan was paid after a stunning season by Newcastle, and Pardew is hardly one of the best paid managers in the Premier League – far from it in fact.

The Londoner  still has four years left on his long-term contract on Tyneside, and it may well be that Ashley will offer Alan improved terms, even though the manager’s contract will still be based largely on performance criteria associated with the team.

If it’s one thing we have understood about Mike Ashley over the last five years, is that he wants value for money.

And since the 50 year-old has shown himself to be an excellent manager for the Tyneside club, and has built a very good staff around him, which includes local Newcastle men like John Carver and Steve Stone, now may be a good time to offer Alan and the coaching staff new long term deals.

Certainly with  Pardew having performed wonders for Newcastle last season, and getting Newcastle back into Europe, and winning both the Barclay’s Premier League manager of the Season, and the LMA Manager of the Season awards,  Alan himself will be hoping that a new deal is in the offing.

What do you think?

    Ashley should not forget to put at least 15 million release clause in their contract.
    After all release clause has so important issues now a days……………

    Maybe Anita is a replacement for Forster?

    The whole negative vibe thing is doing my head in. Why did nobody mention the Graham Carr interview that said ‘we have money to spend!’? Yet once again we supposedly bid for a midfielder and it’s another case of ‘whose leaving then?!’.

    It was the same with Cisse in January. Most were excited and others were like ‘bye bye Demba Ba’. It’s not going to happen.

    Regarding the above I can see Pards and co. staying on. Infact I dont see Pards ever managing a Man u, Chelsea, Citeh, Spuds etc… I think he’ll only leave if England come calling or we get beat twice in a row next year and the overwhelming pressure from fans on this blog forces his resignation

    Yes Beattie, need more like us believing these positive vibes.

    Hopefully Pards & co. do get new deals, we sign Anita to play alongside Tiote and then sign Debuchy + new CB & 1-2 Forwards.

    He shouldnt get a new deal yet give it another season see how we do this coming season then if were still challenging at top end give him a life time contract ha..
    A hope all this anita stuff is true really hoping we get him but its just the fact its been broke by talkshiite and daily fail that makes me wonder ha, yes nufcfans have spoke to his agent but they also spoke to gervinhos agent and mulumbus agent or whatever but dont look like we even wanted him, we should try a triple Ajax raid for.. Anita, Van Der Wiel and Alderweield give them 18/20 million thats defence sorted and then we just need a striker, sign Barnetta and Kalou on a free and then go for a young but relatively experienced non african striker(not being racist just being logical) and then In my honest opinion that is easily a champ league team!! Around 25 million spent max..

    Just accept the fact the press are anti-Newcastleish…

    I don’t see Pardew moving to a bigger club, he might get the England job depending on how Woy fairs, but I really can’t see him moving up in the world.

    When does the financial fair play start?

    It’s too early for AP to get a new deal, regardless of the achievements this season.
    He needs another year to show a pattern to things, and that he really has a success recipie.

    Agree with you. I think Anita is far from done and dusted yet.

    Also re Pardew I don’t get this long term deal bit just yet. He already has 3.5 years left to run. Let’s review at the end of next season and see if it wasn’t a one season wonder.

    I’d prefer Brahimi as a LW

    –Ben Arfa———————————Brahimi–

    I can’t see us signing der Wiel, if we get Alderwield then put him in instead of Saylor; if not it’s still a good team.
    If we can’t get Brahimi then play Marveaux, he’s decent too.

    Not many outrageous signings considering how close the deals for Debuchy and Anita are.

    fair play will start as soon as big guns sort their acounts……
    on another note- deal is not done until its done and continual link up are just to sell papers .
    rumors are sailing for dutch players.

    Who knows mate. Debuchy, got no clue. Anita, we are supposedly meeting him and his agent when he gets home from holiday next week.
    According to his agent.

    Debuchy- French media say that ever since Newcastle heard that Inter were interested in Debuchy, we have sped up negotiations and that was 2 days ago; besides Transfer Sage said we’ve already signed him.

    Anita – Probably more doubtful, rumours are that we’ve already put in a 7m bid in but the player’s on holiday next week when they’ll discuss the move. Interest from Lambert too; perhaps not now that he’s at Villa.

    Ashley is getting the hang of this, isn’t he! I know supporters are annoyed about the stadium name change, but it will always be SJP to us and the Board.
    All the backroom staff have performed professionally and too an extremelyandard so deserve rewarding with improved and extended contracts.
    Newcastle United have found the magic formula and are busy waving their wand, other clubs are still scratching their heads wondering how the hell a team only promoted a couple of years ago, can be so dammed good and competing with Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool for the 4th spot.
    What I fail to understand is why so many are waiting for the wheels to fall off, it woun’t happen!
