Alan Pardew Signs New Improved Eight Year Deal With Newcastle


We knew Alan Pardew likes it at Newcastle and news today that the Newcastle manager has signed a new eight year deal at the Tyneside club, as the powers that be try to build some stability for the long term success of the club.

Alan Pardew – handed new improved eight year deal

Alan has done just great since signing on in December of 2010, and he also sees eye to eye with the owner Mike Ashley and the Managing Director Derek Llambias, and has fully supported Newcastle’s long term strategy to get us back as a major club in both England and Europe.

And of course Alan Pardew won both the LMA and Premier League Manager of the Year awards last season – a wonderful achievement for both Alan Pardew and Newcastle.

And the really good news is that his backroom staff of John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman have also been handed new deals.

Newcastle United’s Managing Director Derek Llambias said:

“If you look at clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal, Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have shown that stability gives you the best platform to achieve success and that is the model we wish to emulate here.”

“We’re looking to build on the success we had last season and these new contracts are aimed at keeping the Club progressing on and off the pitch, as we have done since returning to the Premier League in 2010.”

“Alan has done a fantastic job over the last couple of years and has proved what a great Premier League manager he is. I have total respect for him in all football matters and have an excellent relationship with him which I think benefits the club enormously.”

“Alan also has one of the best backroom teams in the country and I would like to thank John Carver, Steve Stone, and Andy Woodman for all their combined efforts.”“We hope this announcement will be great news for the fans, whose support and commitment to this club over the years has been fantastic.”

This is tremendous news and shows that Newcastle are getting back to the stability we had (well at least for five years) when Bobby Robson managed the club so brilliantly, and owner Mike Ashley wants the stability on which to build for the future.

Newcastle’s big four – Andy, John, Alan and Steve – sounds like a rock group

Chief Scout Graham Carr was also handed a new eight year deal recently – and we all know Graham is a vital clog in the Newcastle United wheel.

    On HBA, i think AP said early on this season that HBA would be a big game player, so he’ll want to keep hin fresh for those games.

    Great news. This is a good and big steo towards our future.

    I must say Ashley and Llambias have been doing an exemplary job since we got relegated. I love the mentality and the direction of the club at the moment.

    Haven’t been this comfortable, excited,happy about the club since ….well a loooong time.

    Good move in principle but 8yrs is an eternity in football. In two years time Pardew could be struggling badly and there could be calls for him to go, now MA has a lengthy 8 yr contract he won’t want to pay off.
    4 years would have been sufficient enough.

    Did anyone else see that brendan ridgers has written to the professional referees association for an explanation as to why his team aren’t getting any decisions there way? He must not agree with 90% of people who believe its cos his team is full diving idiots!!!

    8years! I like Pardew but that is a long time! 8years ago Bobby Robson left, I’m all for stability but I really hope he’s not struggling in a couple of years time.

    But for now, onward and upward!!

    my point is pardew seems to ride the luck train rather than rely on good old fashioned coaching,

    we have 8 points on the board up to now, but we have mainly 2 players to thank for that, HBA and BA,

    pardews tactics baffel me, his team selections baffel me,

    i think its quite plain why cabaye isnt the same player , just like last year, pardew played him to deep , as another DMF, tha is not his game

    before all you jump down my neck, think first, look at jonas, for 2 seasons he was my fave player, but the 2nd half of last year and this year, he is not the same player, he does not run as much as he did,, he no longer plays left wing, he is playing DMF

    there is a huge gap between the front 2 and the rest, HBA out on the right is beeing wasted, he is our most creative player, and some games he hardly gets the ball ??? why

    obertan???? everytime sammy gets on, he is positive, runs at defenders, obertan tries it and loses the ball a lot, and he can not cross for toffee, and that is his job, but he still is infront of sammy or romain,, please remember obertan didnt even play for MAN U reserve team that much, yet he walks straingt into our team,

    pardew,, he has his faves,, he stands by them, when he should put winning first,

    Its true about most of the big clubs having stability with long term managers such as Moyes,Fergie, & Wenger. And if our next 7 seasons are anything like last year I will be happy 😉

    Maybe he’s not thinking about pay off’s but trying to instill stabilty to the club something which we haven’t had for donkeys years!
    Reading llambias statement its clear they see the road to success is by building a solid foundation and a stable platform to improve on

    Interesting this. There is usually a financial ulterior motive with big Mike. Perhaps he thinks he has the right team (in terms of cost and benefit) here and wants to ensure whopping compensation in case anyone gets poached?

    8 years does seem overly excessive, why not 5 years?

    do all teams have fcuking brainless fans or are we just unlucky? Christ man, catchy + a load on twitter, Idiots. Remind me of a bunch of robotic sheep, stuck in the mentality of Ashley being clueless and Pardew being a puppet. Gotta’ feel sorry for them, either they’re boys trying to look like they have an opinion, or “adults” that have yet to fathom the ability of forming their own.

    To compare Pardew to Wenger and Ferguson is a bit of a joke, dont know why Pardew wasnt just given a pay rise, stability over the rest of his current contract is cool with me but sort of says that Ashley is happy with the team currently, which to be fair is generally playing quite poor.

    Ferguson and Wenger have been employed for ages as one they have won things and two they have their teams playing good attractive football. Fergies FA Cup win saved him from the sack, Pardew gets rewarded for yet again getting knocked out of a cup at the first hurdle. Anybody remember Brighton last year. Seems a needless long term contract for me.

    Jonas is bieng converted because he’s lost a yard of pace and is ineffective now as i winger so he’s undergoing a transition to DMF vut in that statement you contradict yourself, how can cabaye, perch/anita and jonas all be playing CDM this season? They cant so its no wonder tactics baffle you

    As for obertan christ almighty how has he “walked into the first team”? One europa game (which romain also started) and one LC game??? As for sammy you may not of noticed but hes been out injured and is not back to fitness nothing to do with his favourites

    @19 – I would see it more as a Moyes than a Fergie or Wenger.

    I think Mike is realistic about what he can achieve with Newcastle…

    A decent coaching team (no one can deny that those guys have done quite well), a good scouting system and a sensible pay structure/recruiting policy as some of the key components of a “well run club”.

    With this approach, he can have a relatively successful club that makes a tidy profit.without massive risks in respect to financial outlay.

    we must watch differet games,, and i bet your one of those idiots who say we go easy with kids,, there shall be no winners, only taking part counts,,

    pratt,, open your eyes,,, why sub BA when he is the one looking like he will score,, im a massive fan of cisse and he will come good, but lately,, BA has been the better play,,

    in the summer,, our bigpriority was a defender or 2, and a CF,, look what we got,, some good players,, but not what we needed

    Arsenal have not won anything for a good few years now but you don’t see Wenger being dumped any time soon. As for the team not playing well, we are still winning plus it is still early doors to say the least.

    well although it is good to see pardew given a contract extension i think 8 years is still too much formanagers these days besides chris did superb getting us back in the league and had a good but but it was not long before he got sacked.
    i do think pardew is our best manager since robson but he still need to improve his timing of subs e.g. yesterday instead of making the sub right on half time he made two when we went 2-0 down so when cisse scored that goal we still needed another.

    I am happy with this news, and hope AP is manager of this club for more than the 8yrs. Along with his backroom staff…i feel this will allow him to put a stamp on this football club. Onwards and upwards!!! HWTL

    well if you watch,, this seem to be the plan,, he is playing with 3 CDM, we now dont have a left winger,, santon is up and down,,
    marv and ferg are both better than jonas on the left,
    bigi and anita are better in CDM, yet he still plays abeid is better also in that possition

    obertan should not even be on our bench,, im yet to see what options he bring to the team

    The REALLY good thing that will come of this is that AP now gets to losen up a bit, and not try to “keep his job” kind of.
    Much of was the feel from i thought last season.
    Good things are to come 🙂

    wenger, saf, moyes. all long term managers who prove themselves time after time. pardew to join the ranks?
    5games in and ppl complaining we’re not winning. we are on the same points as spurs and arsenal (right?) 2 rival teams.
    we are picking up points even when playing below par. much like man u have done in the past. is that not the sign of the good team?
    you don’t need to hammer in 4 goals a game to be top 6

    Good points Catchy,
    but to his credit, I think he’s learning. And he talks the talk these days: e.g. Newcastle always play to win (cool top 4 style statement). Not sure why he got an even longer contract than the already long contract he has. Things can go belly up with coaches and your Wengers and Fergies have earned their stripes. Anyway, more importantly, give big fat long contracts to your HBA’s, Ba, Cisse, Tiote etc, now. That’s stability.

    On Obertan, hope he realises he needs to improve. Despite being lively, he did not take on (dribble past) a player yet, at least in a game I’ve seen. But, I do have hopes in him. Finally, he said he’ll be happy with a point nex game, I won’t.
