Pardew’s Record In First 100 Games – Mediocre At Best


Alan Pardew is still under pressure at Newcastle, and he now has to get Newcastle away from the relegation zone, and it was interesting that owner Mike Ashley was there to see some of the four French players he signed last week – all in a short four days.

Newcastle United's manager Alan Pardew

Alan Pardew won 37 of first 100 games at Newcastle

Last night was Alan Pardew’s 10th game in charge of Newcastle, since he took over from Chris Hughton in December of 2010, and his record is mediocre at best having won 37, lost 36 and drew the other 27 games.

Alan was asked about the 100 games he has managed Newcastle United;

“Ninety to 100 wasn’t particularly comfortable.” “I enjoyed the first 80, and the 100th one was nice.” “It’s been tough on myself.” “I take it to heart when we don’t win – I’m a winner.” “We had a nice mood in the hotel, and even John Carver was smiling at the end.”

Alan Pardew has a 37% win rate in his first 100 games, and in the 70 games Chris Hughton managed at Newcastle – his record was won 39, lost 14 and drew the other 17 – so Chris’ win rate was 56% – but of course around 46 of those games were in the Championship – so it’s hard to judge.

In contrast Bobby Robson managed Newcastle for 255 games and won 119 and lost 72 for a win rate of 46.7%,  and Kevin Keegan managed Newcastle for 273 games in two spells as manager, and won 144 and lost 71 and his win average was 52.7%.

But we want Alan Pardew to be successful at Newcastle – because that means Newcastle will be successful – and if the first half last night is anything to go by – Pardew will be able to revive Newcastle with the five new players Mike Ashley brought into the club this month.

And Newcastle will not be signing 19 year-old Bastia forward Florian Thauvin before Thursday night, since he signed on at Lille yesterday.

    Pardew now has nowhere to hide as we have most of our players back playing along with some quality additions, so we need results and we need to get away from the bottom of the league.

    I still think he will be gone come the summer. If Ashley has ambition for the club then we need a manager that can realise that ambition and who can get the most out of our players

    @JB can’t see Ashley giving Pards the boot with an 8 year contract and all that …. He has given him the firepower now so let’s wait and see ! Would be like admitting he was wrong if he fired Pards and not sure Ashley likes to be wrong – time will tell !

    I think Mediocre at best is a bit harsh to be honest

    Bobby Robson and Keegan never had the amount of injuries to deal with and budget constraints that Pardew has had to deal with

    I would take Capoue personally – if he goes to QPR it will be because they bid ridiculous money. Can’t blame the bloke for demanding sky high wages.

    Remy however can disappear for all I care. He agreed terms to come to us until floppy shoved more money under his nose, never showed up at SJP for the tour, he can rot in the championship for all care – although he won’t hang around of they go down.

    @Blaydon-Toon while I think you’re right the word on the grape-vine is Ashely would only have to pay AP one year’s worth of compensation should he fire him. He won’t be going anywhere this season but by Jan next year if we’re not top half I think Ashley will rethink AP’s position at the club.

    Last night’s performance at Villa Park was absolutely huge. Maybe, just maybe folk will get behind the players and manager and stop being so negative. Onwards and upwards.

    It’s important to put some perspective in this article Ed.

    On the very best managers have win percentages over 50%. David Moyes has 42% at Everton, Harry Redknapp has 40% throughout his career, and Pardew has 43% over his entire career.

    Just to balance it out a bit…

    Hoots PL win record with us at Newcastle before being fired was just under 30%.

    I really liked him, but that season in the championship which was great, does flatter his record with us.

    the 8 year contract means nothing as he only gets a years compensation if sacked.

    By the fact that Ashley is now hands on with the club tells me that he wants more than what he’s getting. If he has real ambition then Pardew is not the man for the job, yes he’s done well at times but if we want Champions League football in our future then we need a change come the summer

    the whole point of an 8 year deal was to give the club continuity for the first time in decades – what was fergusons first 100 games ratio? Was’nt he on the verge of the bullet?

    pardews record for the rest of that season was 6 wins, 7 losses, 9 draws which win % of 27.2%

    Pardew has a better loss % though 31.8% to hughtons 43%

    If we don’t sack Pardew at the end of the season and replace him for next seaso, we will be in a relegation fight again. His tactics has been shocking for most of the season. AP is a top 10 manager at best.

    I say replace him with someone like Di matteo , Benitez or even Redknapp if NUFC wants to go English but definately AP needs to be replace !!

    I think, although its difficult to forget whats happened before, that we should judge pardew at the end of the season.

    See if he gets the new lads playing some good stuff and see what he can do with a proper team and squad.

    If the football is still shocking and sloppy then possibly look to replace him, if there are signs things improve then give him another year.

    I dont expect miracle and world class form but I think we need to continue to improve our play, even more than we have done of late, and make sure we get a few good 90min and not just 45.

    I think a sense of perspective would be prudent here. When looking at a stat like that, you have to take into account what the manager inherited when he began the job. In Alan’s case, we’d been relegated, players had deserted us (good riddance to most) and Chris Hughton had performed miracles getting us promoted. Finally Andy Carroll had been sold in the January transfer window, leaving us with not a lot. It wasn’t a much of a foundation to build from, was it ?

    I think you can judge a manager on the team he builds, and I’d suggest it’s only now looking through the first team that you can safely say it’s now Pardew’s team.

    The time to judge him is when the new lads have settled in and we kick off the next season. Otherwise we as fans, fall into the same trap we’ve done in the past, prematurely demanding the manager be sacked.

    The new lads look great. Sissoko looks a beast, and had the vision to pick out Cisse with a great pass.

    Onwards and upwards!

    Many people forget the fact that Pardew only won 3 out of the last 17 games of the season when he took over from Hughton. Last season was immense. He then carried on his poor record this season.

    I am not gonna start bashing AP again but this record is of no surprise to me and others whatsoever. One season doesn’t make a manager, just like it doesn’t make a player.

    He still has a lot to prove

    Bano…He certainly still does have a lot to prove and that will never end. Every player and manager needs to keep proving their worth.

    At the same time, one bad half season doesn’t make the manager. All most of us are asking is for some patience and to give him a fair chance, he’s neither excellent nor terrible, surely that’s what pretty much every stat we can use shows us.

    Agee that Pards is not in the top class manager bracket and makes some very strange decisions! I understand that he will only be paid a year if he does go but given the fact he has been given such a long contract by ” super Mike” 🙂 it would still reflect badly on him should he fire his cockney pal ! If we start off next season with a few new additions I really do think we will push for a top 6 finish ! I was a realistic fan this year and said top ten as I did think we over achieved when we finished 5 th and had some luck with injuries which we have not had this season !

    Until the last 10 games Pards win record was 39%. Not too shabby. What this blog and the replies does tell me though that too many of us have too much time on our hands. Lol

    We dont spend big so steady improvement is all we can demand.

    Hopefully we can add another player who will offer goals whether its PEA, rvw, siem de jong, etc.

    I think pardew will manage to turn this around and build on some of the good play we have had in recent weeks.

    been saying for ages we need a coach that can coach attacking fluent football. Pards is one dimentional and panics…..
    Hopefully with pace now in the team he may change his tactics.

    I can’t see him being sacked, he’s perfect for Ashley.
    I have no confidence in him.

    If all the squad is fit even Pardew will find it hard to lose.
    We should finish 7th – 10th most seasons.
    With the odd shot at the CL if everything goes our way.

    He’s far too defensive for a Newcastle manager.
    He’s become the new Big Sam.

    You can dress stats up how you like.

    I think Pards now has the team and squad to make a go of it and prove to us what he is capable of. Providing he keeps the squad together during the summer, or replces our blue chip guys if they go then give him another season.

    TORQ – Do you think theres any chance of any more bodies coming in? Greedy maybe but I just feel we need that one more striker to provide competition to Cisse, nevermind cover

    What I don’t get with Pardew is that in so many games we have looked very, very good in the first half but then come back out and sit back far too often and is substitution have a negative effect on the side as he seems things for the sake of changing them.

    His position as manager will depend on the ambition of the owner

    I think we need to get a good coach in to work with pardew. Somebody in carvers role like man utd did with carlos quiroz or like barca did with tito vilenova working with pep.

    We need a guy who can teach pardew the tricks of the trade if you will on the continental style.
