Alan Pardew – Tottenham Job Doesn’t Interest Me

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was part of the BBC panel for yesterday’s Euro 2012 coverage, and during the program pundit Gary Linkar asked Alan whether he would be interested in the Tottenham Hotspur job,  after Harry Redknapp  had been surprisingly fired yesterday.

Alan Pardew – I’m going nowhere

Alan Pardew has done as well as anybody could have, in his first eighteen months on Tyneside, and he seems very happy at Newcastle, and of course still has four years left on the long term deal he signed for Mike Ashley in December of 2010.

It’s not surprising that the Londoner has been linked with the now vacant Tottenham job, but Alan quickly shot down that he would even be interested in moving back to London:

“No the job would not interest me.” “Newcastle has gone terrifically well, we’ve got such a good young side and I’m just hoping we keep it all together for next year,  and have another go at it because we’ll have a good go.”

“If you’re the manager of the football club, you can’t do much more. Harry has done a magnificent job.” “If you’re the owner and you want to take the club in a different direction and change the manager, no-one’s party to that reason.”

Alan was one of the front-runners for the Spurs job, although Everton’s David Moyes was quickly made  the top favorite to take over the north London club, once the Redknapp announcement had been made.

Alan Pardew seems to get on very well with owner Mike Ashley and the other people running Newcastle, and he seems to be very happy on Tyneside, in what is the biggest job he has ever had in his management career.

But he’s done just great, and we just hope that Ashley is paying this man enough money, for the way he has brought the excitement and  attacking play back  to the club, last seen when the great Bobby Robson was the manager.

Somehow, we didn’t expect Alan would be interested in the Spurs job.

What do you think?

    P.s I am so happy about the future of Newcastle United, because the future is really bright! We have a great manager, excelent staff, Mike Ashly runs the club very well now, we have very good first eleven, a few good quallity squad utillity players and much more promising youngsters, we also scouting a lot and always bilding for the future, the worl recognition is growing, more and more fans abroad supports Newcastle united! Long may it continue? Trust me it’s only going to be better! I am realistic and i don’t think next season we will get into CL throu EPL, (but every thing is plausible in Euro Cup) but with reasonalbe good squad additions this year (as you know team is as good as it’s weakest link..) i also think that this year we will make it to the final of Capital cup or Fa cup and hopefully win it. Good day everyone!
