This Is Why Alan Pardew Will Not Be Fired By Newcastle


We know there are a lot of fans who would like (love) to see Alan Pardew fired, after we were humiliated by Sunderland last Sunday, and after all, some Newcastle fans have just never taken to the man.

Pardew – will be given chance to make Newcastle top six side again

But rather than get into the pros and cons of Alan’s attributes,  we think there’s just no chance that Alan Pardew will be leaving the club anytime soon, and that’s based on what his bosses think about the situation and the man.

Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias have (almost) admitted they made a huge mistake last summer, by not increasing the size and quality of the squad for Europe.

And the five Frenchmen we brought in during January almost proves that – and the five lads all started yesterday, so they were all good buys in our opinion – very good buys.

And with the extra 14 games we’ve had in Europe, where the lads are playing on a Sunday following the Thursday game,  that’s affected us in the league – definitely.

And then we’ve had all the injuries – and are still having them – poor Ryan Taylor is going to be out for almost two seasons now, Colo’s been out for eight weeks since he did his back in late February, and Ben Arfa has hardly been available, and will only be used as a late substitute in the remaining games.

Tim Krul, Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor and others have also been out injured for long periods this season.

And there’s a hint today that Alan Pardew is saying he doesn’t really care where we finish in the league as long as we are not relegated.

And it could well be there will be lots of comings and going in the summer – to rebuild the squad for next season – although we have some very good players right now – if only they were fit.

We’d be very surprised if Mike Ashley doesn’t want Newcastle to finish in the top six next season, and without the European games, and with the basis of the squad we have now – when all fit – we should be a decent bet to do just that.

And of course we’ll have two chances to hammer Sunderland next season, as long as we both stay up – which seems likely.

It’s been a terrible season in the league, an embarrassing league season, no doubt about it, but we’re almost 100% certain we’re reading the tea leaves correctly  – that Mike Ashley will want Alan Pardew to do what he did last season – and get us back into the top six next season – and Europe again.

And then we need to ensure our squad is big enough for Europe – and we cannot make the same mistakes again.

That’s what we think is going to happen at Newcastle.

    One of the reason that Pardew could be sacked is that after those quality internationals where brought in during the January window our manager has failed at every turn to get the best out of them or anyone else for that matter.

    It’s all well and good Pardew saying that our squad wasn’t big enough but it’s his job to get the best out of the player we did have, players that were hailed for taking us to fifth last season.

    It seems that Mr. Pardew wants the applause and adulation when things are going well but quickly shifts the blame when things go wrong

    I fully understand Pardew has had a very difficult season, any manager would struggle and I will go as far as saying nobody would have got us top 5 again.

    I think with the quality we have we should be safely in the top 10…thats not asking form much, just another 9-10 points, and given some of our defeats then i think that would be a fair amount.

    I don’t think we have lost only due to injuries/weak squad, sure that cost us a few times i understand. But early european round we changed 8 players or so on a thursday so tiredness shouldn’t have been a huge issue for that, maybe later round when we went with the best team each time.

    I think our problem has been lack on intent, not even style of football, just the fact we sit so deep a lot of the time that we cause ourselves problems.

    Yesterday was a perfect example, a microcosm of our season. First half we played high, quick, closed down early, pressured a were winning and should have had more. Second half we came out to defend, sat deep, invited them into our half and paid the price.

    If we can cut that overly cautious part of our game out Pardew could be the man to lead us forward, if he can’t then we need to be looking elsewhere.

    Same old , same old
    He has no new tactics to change a game unless it is hoof ball and trying to protect a 1 goal lead after 20mins !!
    He is paid a lot of money to deliver .
    Look at many other managers who play without the so called top players we are supposed to have .
    David Moyes is a prime example of consistency with little money to splash out . I am sure there are many more .

    He can’t cut it out.

    It’s who he is and how he’s managed his entire career.

    I mean its even how he played during his career.

    He is one dimensional because its all he knows and nothing else will change that. Not extra coaching, additional staff or better players.

    We’ll be lucky to get a point v Liverpool (h) and WHU (a) both are playing well.

    QPR (a) is a massive must win.

    I can see us needing at least a point v Arsenal (h) on the last day. Squeaky bum time.

    what’s to say the same thing wont happen again next season, there is no guarantee decent players will want to come to our club without Europe.

    If we do what has been stated and we look at a list of players and dont get the 1st,2nd,3rd….We will again be no better off.

    we have missed a great chance this season, its no good i suppose whinging now we all know it was during the summer we should have strengthened.

    Jan brought some good players and a bit of depth to the squad, my opinion is some of the players (Sissoko, Maps) could be absolutely fantastic with the right coaching set up, but we all know about that and people are split on this blog re the choice of manager.

    I genuinely cannot see Ash sitting back and watching another ten/twelve games next season similar to our last ten/twelve games this season.

    I am not in the know, does Pards pick our players or does Carrsy pick them initially then Pards gives his blessing, is Dennis Wise still texting ash after viewing Youtube! We all know we need to sort out what we have on the pitch already before adding more players that will again disrupt the team, class players will adapt but with Pards style i do not know.

    It is ingrained into him, i agree with you there.

    with a more positive, attacking coach/assistant he might change. He is a stats man from what i read and if we can change and he sees all the stats go in our favour he may change.

    I personally agree and don’t think he will, but if new coaches were brought in to help i’d willingly give him time as it shows he would want to change. But crucially he needs to see the problem, or at least accept it if it’s pointed out to him.

    Seriously, if a few injuries is preventing us from playing with any fluency, passing or movement then we may as well all give up. Injuries are a fact of life. Yes we knew we were short of players in the summer, but let’s face it Everton seem to manage with a small squad a limited resources year on year. The fact of the matter is management (sports or business) is about using the resources you have available to you to their best potential. If anyone genuinely believes that Pardew is making the most of what he has, then you should think about checking your pulse.

    The creativity behind Cisse would create more than enough chances. Sissoko adds height, pace and power in the middle of the park alongside the pass master Anita. That side has a great balance and would be more than a match for most PL teams. However we all know Pardew will stick with his love child Gutierrez and Tiote.

    I don’t think Percy is the type of character that can change his ways -regardless of other influences. He would have to be dragged kicking and screaming to change anything in his make up. He is what he is.
    Throughout his career he’s always been cocky and arrogant and regularly makes PR gaffes, of which I’ve written about six months ago. There is something clearly wrong at the Toon.

    Mbiwa’s had an average start for us. He’s made a couple of major mistakes per game. He seems to give the ball away in the danger area too much. He needs to learn from Marveaux on how to do the simple pass. Is he left-footed?

    People are also forgetting the impact the World Cup will have next season!

    If we gone down none of the players will stay.

    If we stay up the top players will wan to shine to try and get a place in next years competition.

    Players won’t be falling over themselves to work under Pardew after this season but brining in a new manager may help attract players and they will then hope to be noticed and break into the international set up.

    The current players may even want to leave to play under better managers to get noticed next season. Why play for nufc and look shit? Bring in a new manager and perhaps they will want to stay and play with better suited tactics.

    In both circumstances regarding player recruitment it is not good keeping Pardew at the helm.

    If Ashey is going to invest in the summer will he trust pardew to do the best with the players he signs??? Ashely is obviously a great businessman and u wouldn’t invest more into your business if the right man isn’t running it. They might get on well but at the end of the day ashely won’t let pardew keep devaluing his club and making less money for him. It myt be wishful thinking but if ashely thinks there is a better man out there I.e. LAURENT BLANC Ashely will have no hesitation about sacking pardew.

    ed, you’re as bad as pardew with the excuses. yes he hasnt exactly had the rub of teh green, but what team gets everything their own way all the time?

    he has to roll with the punches and time fter time we resort to hoof to ameobi and hit and hope football.

    the biggest crime for me, not the lack of pass and move, the defending slender leads, crap subs, excuses, derby loss, more excuses. its that we have absolutely no style of play, everything is random, its left to chance. thats not good enough when ur manager of NUFC.

    he has to go,

    someone take a banner saying PARDEW OUT to the pool game please. also someone take a banner saying HOW CAN 7 CHANGES TO YOUR TEAM MEAN THAT THEY’RE ALL TIRED?

    Which coaches would want to work under him though?

    Top coaches are as hard to find as managers. Bringing in a new manager with a already competent coaching set up is the only way forward.

    We’re not going to be able to head hunt quality coaches to work under a noted arrogant manager who in footballing terms has outdated tactics and mundane ideologies.

    I wouldn’t want to work for him and he doesn’t even have his own coaching set up following him around apart from the goalkeeping coach.

    Saying hire a new coach is a pointless as saying hire a new striker. They may help the issue but they won’t fix it. You have to have the right manager not only to direct the players but to direct the coaches.

    I think it is totally unfair that Pardew clearly has favorites in the squad. Anita was our only decent player at the end of last year and beginning of this one when Cabaye was out injured but is dropped like hot sh*t when Tiote or Yohan were fit. Jonas, Obertan (Pardew’s personal signing) Santon and Tiote can all have nightmares and still be given chance after chance.

    Also Gouffran seems to be his favourite player to take off for the donkey that is Shola Ameobi at 60 minutes despite being one of our most likely scorers. And if he plays Sissoko in the hole against Liverpool I will give up. The guy only has 20 goals in 200 appearances FFS. If he is going to play anyone there it should be Marv or HBA. Rant over 🙂

    Long story short, Pardew is clueless.

    pardew could learn though, not saying he will, but sometimes people do change.

    I think, if the board want him to stay which seems likely, they should try their best to get him a good coach, i’m sure there will be a good one willing to work somewhere, doesnt need to be a big name just good.

    Pardew has said he wants attacking football countless times, actions speak louder than words so i’m not convinced, but there is a small chance he wants this just doesn’t know how to go about it.

    My preference would be to change the lot, coaches and manager, but if they don’t want pardew gone i really hope they want him to get help and at least give him the chance to learn.

    Forgot about him but he would still be on the bench.

    I like Taylor but we can’t rely on him for a full season. He also gets far to tight to players and is constantly being turned inside out in dangerous areas. M’biwa is more than capable being the physical presence with Colo being the sweeper. We look far more composed with Collocini as he is a ball player and can work passes to the midfield with ease and as long as we don’t play to high of a line he is one of the best CB’s in the league.
