Pardew – It’s Rubbish – It’s An Absolute Disgrace

10:03 am, Monday, May 13th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 55 Comments

Alan Pardew is a relieved man today – just like Newcastle fans – as we can bask in the safety of knowing we’re not being relegated,  and in fact we’re in 13 place – but whether we can stay there after the Arsenal game is debatable.

Newcastle United's Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson celebrate after the 2-1 win at QPR

Coloccini and Williamson – delighted after the game – Willo was solid

There has been a growing contingent of fans that want Alan Pardew sacked, but news today is that Pardew was told last night his job is safe – and that being the case Newcastle must try to strengthen the squad in the summer, and why not try for 4th place next season?

This is what Alan Pardew said in the Evening Chronicle today:

“We’ve had to put up with some absolute rubbish.” “The people who said there were rifts were stupid.” “You can’t get draws at teams like West Brom and West Ham and a win in London against QPR with that sort of thing going on.”

“It’s rubbish. It’s an absolute disgrace.” “And those people who said it and brought it to the attention of everybody outside of Newcastle for no reason but being malicious, will be crying into their beer.”

“It was a great win for the football club and a great win for the city.” “It was a great win for the area too.” “Sunderland got a draw and I hope they are safe. We want to play them next year.”

“I was aggrieved about some decisions – especially the goalie.” “You have to be right with those decisions. It was definitely a borderline decision.”

“With 10 minutes to go of a game of that magnitude? Blimey, you can’t make that call. But he did.” “Luckily for us we had Harps, who came on as if it was a Sunday afternoon and he was going down the pub with his dog.”

“That calmed everybody. It certainly calmed me down.”

There was a great scene on the sidelines after Elliot was sent off, when Steve Harper came up alongside the manager while putting on his gloves, and Steve gave Pardew a wry smile, and Alan started to laugh.

It was like – “hi boss – don’t worry I’ve played for this team before”  – and Pardew said he felt a lot better when Steve was so calm in the Newcastle goal  and calmed everybody down.

Now Steve Harper will get a great send-off from the fans next Sunday,  when he plays his 201st and last game for Newcastle – you cannot make this stuff up. 😀

There were a number of times in the second half when Newcastle had excuses to collapse – but we didn’t.

Coloccini was a tower of strength for Newcastle, and who says this guy doesn’t give his all for Newcastle,

Colo has been simply magnificent for Newcastle in the last two games  – and just think what could have happened if hadn’t missed those 12 games.

We must try to keep him Tyneside – he can be the man who leads Newcastle back into the top six – or even the top four.

We’re starting to dream again.

    Outsidethebox, Repost
    Stability can come with changing the manager, Swansea have changed manager several times but have managed stability as they have employed new managers who have continued the same philosophy.

    For us, we can continue with Pardew and have stability through having the same manager, but if we got from 5th to 13th, how is that stable? Or, we can re think and then begin again with an aim for stability under a new manager with a plan to progress us, and if/when we need to change again by employing a man with the same footballing philosophy.

    Essentially, it comes down to you definition of stability, in my eyes this season has not demonstrated a stable club.

  • 3 Ben3arfa // May 13, 2013 at 10:08 AM

    So we lose 3-0 in our local derby and get smacked 6-0 the following home game and yet Pardew is still considered fit to manage the club?

    Disgrace, and will only lead to more shitty atmosphered games at SJP

  • 4 WWYCD // May 13, 2013 at 10:10 AM

    Harper is just great imo would happily have him as a coach

    Over the moon he will play against Arsenal

  • 5 nufcursed // May 13, 2013 at 10:11 AM

    if pardew isn’t sacked, ashley is as dumb as the fans that keep supporting pardew!
    stability is only good when you have a decent manager, which pardew isn’t!

    Pardew – He’s Rubbish – He’s An Absolute Disgrace

    wwycd

    Having French speaking people is way too facile to say that is the problem. No one was complaining last year with Tiote, Cisse, Ba, Cabaye Benny etc. Never did Arsenal any harm either.

    Thing is Arsenal have a very good French manager with a fantastic CV. We have an abject English one with a very mediocre CV.

    I love our French players and would be happy with more, but it’s so blindingly obvious we need a French / continental manager to get the best out of them as they are being so criminally wasted. Who knows maybe even Amaltifano and Abeid could come good under a proper manager.

    YorkMagpie,
    I think Stone and Carver have to take blame, but if Pardew stays I don’t see them going.

    Beardsley should be kept as far away from any coaching as possible, give him an ambassadors role or something. However, he is highly likely to be an important part of any new setup, as he is Ashleys biggest fan within the club. He is one of the biggest yes men as far as Ashley is concerned, and has bought 110% into Ashleys blueprint.

    It would not surprise me to see him given a higher position in terms of the coaching side of the club, as it would be a similar PR stunt to KK/Shearer, but Ashley has the security of knowing Beardsley will be on his side.

  • 11 geordie Jack // May 13, 2013 at 10:15 AM

    Comments from a fans forum on Moyes from the 2005/06 season when they struggled with relegation:
    “You can see in their body language and the way they capitulate when they go behind, they have no confidence in themselves, Moyes, or each other. Everything we built up last season is gone. I can only assume there are personal vendettas within the team too, Osman has to move hell and high water to get 5 minutes and Hibbert has been dropped without a trace for seemingly nothing. In the meantime, the likes of Kilbane, Neville and Valente are seemingly undroppable, no matter how sh*te they are”……. “Moyes has to go”. Sound familiar?

  • 14 TorqToon // May 13, 2013 at 10:18 AM

    Will be wonderful to see Harps in the sticks on final day. Would love him to lead out the side as well.

    Think pardew was right about the Elliot red card as even tv cameras aren’t decisive and Elliot seemed well aware of his location upon collecting the ball.

    And the dig at the press is clearly aimed at the story regarding HBA wearing a psg top. Which was complete fabrication.

  • 15 Lilongwe Geordie // May 13, 2013 at 10:19 AM

    Just in case I get abuse for my Beardsley comment, he was and always will be a club great, and an incredible player. But that doesn’t mean he is right for the club in a coaching capacity at the club.

  • 16 TorqToon // May 13, 2013 at 10:19 AM

    Geordie jack – well found mate!

    And eerily similar! :-)

  • 17 outsidethebox // May 13, 2013 at 10:20 AM

    Lilongwe Geordie…
    take all your points ..but imo think it is worth waiting a few month to see what actions are taken …not sure if pardew is the right man but willing to wait and see if he can learn from this season and take decisive action in terms of playing and coaching staff..

  • 18 Le Belfast 007 // May 13, 2013 at 10:23 AM

    Cmon Wigan !! i’m a believer !!! 😉

  • 19 Lilongwe Geordie // May 13, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    Outsidethebox,
    My issue with allowing him more time, and starting next season, is that if, as many would expect, he doesn’t learn, and is sacked after a poor run at the start of next season, we have wasted another year. If he were to stay, and say we finished 10th next season, would that be acceptable, or would you see that as not good enough for a squad boasting a large number of full internationals?

  • 20 Le Belfast 007 // May 13, 2013 at 10:26 AM

    I don’t really get this lets give him 15 games next season & see were we are stuff. What happens if we’re garbage after 15 games next season ? Do we sack him half way through the season ?? Think I’d rather sack him now & bring a new manager in & give him a full pre season with the players, let him bring in his own players own style of play etc etc.

  • 21 nufc 11 // May 13, 2013 at 10:27 AM

    I was a fan of AP but to be honest if he was at any other club hed have lost his job over the bad form that led to the bad results over the season, things have obvously gone on at the club that he hasnt been in control of, his use of tactic’s are questionable and to think we were relying on wigan to lose to make us safe is enuf for me, form has limped along all year its not good enuf…. MA will prob give him the first 5games of next season and sack him then why not start with a clean slate, new blood? I think the best we can hope for is a new asistant for AP someone with a football brain and top defensive coach love to see Tony Adams come in, or Phil Neville if he retires, Carver has had his shot and hasnt worked out…

  • 22 Black and White with an army lol // May 13, 2013 at 10:29 AM

    well i was looking forward for next season but with Pardew in charge once again i can see another relegation battle and this time we won’t be so lucky

  • 23 NEWEXPATMAGPIE // May 13, 2013 at 10:29 AM

    Pardew just needs to totally change his tactics !

    If we go 1-0 up? Then we need to be taught to push on and make the 2-0 and the 3-0 and the 4-0 !

    The managers tactics appears to be to go for goal and then sit on that slim Lead which is just Bloody Stupid !

    For 3/4 of the season every-one has been telling Pardew this and he just refuses to listen !
    If he,s staying then Okay, but i give maybe till mid-November?

  • 24 Lilongwe Geordie // May 13, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Geordie Jack,
    Are you using that as an argument to keep Pardew? Look at the names mentioned in the quotes, Hibbert, Kilbane, Osman, Neville and Valente. Compare that quality with say, Debuchy, Anita, HBA, Sissioko and Tiote. I think you will find that their is a gulf in quality with those players.

    Also, Moyes managed 11 trophyless years, where they were mainly skipping between bottom 5 and 7/8th. With the occasional top 4/5 slot. Is that what we, as Newcastle fans would say was a successful 11 years if Pardew stays and does that??

  • 25 mindshaft // May 13, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Well we’re safe and thats the main thing, funny that we could actually finish as high as 10th or as low as 17th – if we finished in top ten we’d probably be where we were expected to be in all honesty
    However it’s more about our style of play that baffles me, seems our ‘international’ players simply can’t string 3 passes together most of the time and resort to hoofball to Cisse, is Pards and our coaching staff telling them to do that or is it simply down to the players?

    Think I’d stick with Pards for first 8 games unless we have a proven manager ala Benitez waiting in the wings – it’s more likely we would get someone like Curbishley….. better the devil you know in that case

  • 26 Le Belfast 007 // May 13, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    And I really don’t want Lee Clark in charge. It would be another sideway step in my opinion. Good servant as a player like, but not so sure about him as a manager.

  • 27 ErnestHemingway // May 13, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Over the top reaction to the pardew comment about the arsenal game on Sunday.

    It’s a widely acknowledged fact that the players and staff have been under enormous pressure during our relegation dog fight. After securing top flight status yesterday, pardew is simply trying to relieve the pressure on the players going into the final home game of the season.

    Pardew even said yesterday that the players looked as though they were playing with a noose around their necks. I agree. Then why try and tighten the noose now we are safe? It makes sense to loosen it.

    Chill, guys.

    It seems to me that whatever pardew were to say now, people would criticise it.

  • 28 Laurent Robert 32 // May 13, 2013 at 10:31 AM

    Moyes isn’t Pardew though. Completely different people. Pardew takes his low morale and team destruction wherever he goes.

    As I said before, if he had some previous success at the highest level a lot of fans may be more lenient. The performances on the pitch have been so negative it’s unreal this season or last season.

    Lost out on 18 points from winning positions this season.

    44 goals conceded in the second half of games compared to 23 in the first half.

    Defensive control could be ball retention and passing, but it’s not, it’s defend at all all costs for full second halves. It’s just not good enough.

    They were down and out yesterday, yet we make it look like we’re playing Juventus and are trying to hold onto a goal… both of which were completely gifted, GIFTED to us.

    Amazing that we got the three points, but his hero speech at the end is just an awful slap in the face to everyone who can see he’s blagging his way through earning a wage at a club like ours.

  • 29 wolfshead@toon // May 13, 2013 at 10:31 AM

    i see all the pards haters are slowly back peddling lol

  • 30 mindshaft // May 13, 2013 at 10:32 AM

    Definitely think our coaching staff need a rejig though, Carver et al probably need to go and a decent coach brought in to work alongside Pards

  • 31 Whoarya.com // May 13, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    Support is easy to define so whilst I have been disappointed by Pardiola this season we have funded a massive learning curve for him and our team so now is the time to support them and capitalise on that investment.

    We have a lot of very good players so we can live in hope for next season

    HTL

    PS

    The fans that got kicked out from the lower school Fulham end all around me and my son should have sat on their hands like us and they would have stayed to see the game unfold. NUFC fore warned us but its common sense really to respect the home support especially when you are sat amongst them?

  • 32 Dreamboat3 // May 13, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    Torq didnt you have a big announcement once we had guaranteed safety??

  • 33 Santon03 // May 13, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    the team need a leader who has the ability to acknowledge his mistakes and make an effort to correct it then we can make a progress. what we have now is a team leader who can’t acknowledge his mistakes and blamed everything else. how can he correct things or make things better when he thinks it wasn’t his mistakes or there is nothing to correct and it’s just bad luck or others fault?
    I’m affraid we won’t make any progress if we are under the same leader. It will be the same over and over again that it’s just bad luck or other’s fault.

  • 34 Rotonda heights // May 13, 2013 at 10:35 AM

    My worry is that if there is an end of season review it will be done by Ash and llambias who know zilch about football and are therefore in no position to ask the relevant questions like why are we so defensive and play so much long ball etc.

  • 35 Black and White with an army lol // May 13, 2013 at 10:35 AM

    Pardew could have 10 players coming in and he still wouldn’t change his gameplay

    PARDEW OUT
    RAFA IN

    ASAP

  • 36 spitfire_ // May 13, 2013 at 10:36 AM

    I can’t stand this knob anymore… I hope MA will have some sense.

  • 37 yo-yo // May 13, 2013 at 10:36 AM

    I can see the owner’s intention to take a long view and that we fans have lost most of our confidence in the manager and coaching staff.

    Any side that flirts with relegation is going to have stresses and strains – but it does look as if they held together. Doesn’t mean they played well together and AP has now to improve his own psychology for motivating players and ensuring they are consistent. No silly mistakes – Santon’s backpass, Colo/Saylor backtracking at Spuds – both unacceptable. Two games lost through self inflicted wounds.. Consistency means breeding a culture of excellence and high personal standards and competitive edge into the side and we certainly have only seen flashes of that and too much capitulation and headless chicken stuff.

    What worrries me is that he has a culture of making excuses and self justification instead of taking responsibility and that spills over to the players. So we just don’t have enough professionalism.

    We have to bring in new coaches we really do – the technical side is pretty woeful.

  • 38 outsidethebox // May 13, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    with the squad pardew has with the right additions i expect a top 8 finish at minimum ..mid table is not good enough ..in my opinion krull is top keeper debuchy santon hairdrier are great f/backs mbai is class (need more cb,s ) benny sissoko cabaye marv are good enough cisse needs ano..i have seen enough quick fixes at st james that have ended up wrong ..that is why i think we need to wait and see…

  • 39 Rotonda heights // May 13, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    santon

    I think that is the biggest problem. if pardew can’t see the problems how can he fix them.

  • 40 Lilongwe Geordie // May 13, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    Ernest,
    I agree, there has been an over reaction to his comments, and that in part it is due to the huge relief of being mathematically safe. However, whatever the situation, it is a ridiculous statement to make. To ever say that you don’t care if the club you are in charge of loses at home 4-0 is idiotic. To say thank god we won’t be in Europe is also a stupid comment. He claims to be good with the media, and have had media training. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be in any training manual.

    If we do go and lose 4-0 next week, what will the reaction of the Spurs loving southern press be? Not to mention the Spurs fans seeing them lose out on Champions League, and with it, most likely their star player.

  • 41 eaststandgeordie1982 // May 13, 2013 at 10:38 AM

    He has to go if we are to move forward as a club if hes still here i think i would consider taking my season ticket back.

  • 42 Rotonda heights // May 13, 2013 at 10:39 AM

    getting rid of pardew is not a quick fix, it’s a necessary culling before we regress any further.

  • 43 Le Belfast 007 // May 13, 2013 at 10:42 AM

    Was thinking the same thing Rotanda. Think he’ll blag another season if i’m honest.

  • 44 Lilongwe Geordie // May 13, 2013 at 10:44 AM

    Outsidethebox,
    I agree, top 8 is the minimum requirement next season whoever is the manager. I was like you, in that I was willing to let Pardew show me he can adapt and improve after bringing in the new faces in January. Unfortunately he has not shown me enough for me to justify potentially wasting a full season by starting with him, and then sacking if things go wrong.

    My biggest issue is who we would replace him with, although I think Rene Girard would be an improvement and would fit in with all of Ashleys provisos.

  • 45 Rotonda heights // May 13, 2013 at 10:45 AM

    Wolfsehead

    Hardly backpedalling. If you read most of the comments here I would say 80% want him gone more than ever with 10% not sure and 10% diehards like Manxpie and Ian toon still in love with him regardless.

    Not backpedalling. Just resigned to another 7 years of dismal mediocrity.

  • 46 Big Pappa Cissé // May 13, 2013 at 10:45 AM

    I just don’t get how people can defend Pardew saying “he has had a lot of injuries” . Yes we have had more than our fair share but are we now supposed to completeley write of seasons because of players picking up knocks under Pardew.

    Anytime someone says to me that he has had a lot of injuries I ask them this question :

    Injuries included, have we had a better starting 11 to field than any other team outside the top 7 ? .

    Most people would say yes but still accept a relegation battle which is madness. And none of this give him 10 games into the season rubbish, we should bring in Rafa, let him have 20 million and a pre season with the players and then we can start challenging the top 7 again.

  • 47 Tommyy // May 13, 2013 at 10:46 AM

    It makes me angry that Pardew will probably be here next season, what have we done to deserve this? I just really dislike the man, regardless of his managerial ability. Then throw in his managerial ability and the less said the better.

  • 48 Hatem's better than Messi // May 13, 2013 at 11:03 AM

    When you are in a relationship and it starts going pear-shaped every little thing about someone can start to really annoy you.

    I’m there with Pardew. I just don’t like anything about him. He annoys the f### out of me.

    We have to move on, plenty of fish in the sea, we can do better.

    He doesn’t want Europe, no one wants relegation … so we’re stuck fighting it out for eighth in a good season if he can field his fist Xl.

    Any one else fancy 80+ Pardew press conferences next season … I don’t think my mental health can take much more of Pardew.
    My general mood improves and declines with NUFC fortunes.
    I’m not in a good place right now. Not being relegated should be a reason to celebrate, right? I just don’t see any hope. That was almost his best starting Xl yesterday and they were pretty poor again. After two and a half seasons we should be seeing a slicker unit on the pitch.
    Jonas just doesn’t show for passes if he’s touched the ball recently, its like he’s saying “I’ve done my bit, touched it once, give it to someone else now”.
    If Pardew is still manager next season I might take up gardening.
    Guess we’ll know in a week or two if there hasn’t been a change.
    I hope there’s a big protest at the game.
    We need a manager who loves creating fluid, attacking teams for 90mins. Play to get goals 100% of the time.
    Pardew loves shutting up shop, that’s his biggest problem. He tries to influence games too much from the touchline.

  • 49 Ian Toon // May 13, 2013 at 11:10 AM

    BandB- Re your targets are for public consumption scenario. I bought into your, when talking about Anita, bringing a water colour brush to a paintball fight line but not this latest one. You’ll remember Fat Sam and how he used to project himself as a football god, well Ashley frequently describes his brand of football at the toon as being ‘turgid ugly football’. When Pardew’s brand of play is criticised in his presence I am told that he regularly draws on a favourable comparison with Allardyce. You make a massive assumption that Ashley understands football he doesn’t . He is learning but slowly. He
    does have financial targets and prospective signings have to be individually presented and fully costed. This practice apparently was broken in January because of the special need cases pushed by Pardew. I said yesterday that Pardew’s hand had been strengthened because Ashley fully recognises that big mistakes were made by him in not pushing the boat out last summer. He genuinely fully acknowledges this major mistake and Pardew feels he has license to offload a large part of the responsibility for our demise. Ashley has compared and contrasted the impact on Spurs with different budgets and timing of investment. of their shorter run in the Europa. This aspect is easy for him it is the translation into football circumstances that he has a problem with. MA is also not inclined to entrust the Manager/ Head Coach role to a foreign manager with know PL experience- not really sure why!….. He does want to change the coaching at a few levels with some responsibility for the older so called prospects to be assessed on a
    more regular bais. Emphasis remains on progressing through from academy and on loan programme with additional numbers permitting free movement. One area where Pardew has been criticised is over the quality of fringe players who have largely failed to progress from additional exposure- in Europa. The Brighton game was a wake up call for Pardew and co as anyone at the game would testify.

Only Lee Clark and Terry Mac will Tell Him Dont Be Daft !!!! We need 2 new strikers a new Midfielder and a New Defender and Next Season Without The Micky Mouse Cup we will be a top 6 team again !!!!!

    i doubt most of the people slating pardew so much even attend matches….. ok hes had a shocking season, but if any of you had half a brain, you would look at last year, and the periods when we’ve played well this year, and they would tell you he can play decent stuff, and he can get us results, we aint gonna get rafa, you lot are deluded, and what good is it bringing in a completely un-tested foreign manager?? christ…. pardew is building a side, if it wasnt for him we wouldnt have half of our top drawer side… we’d have shitty british has beens on ridiculously high wages…. we need to sack our fitness staff and get some new coaches but pardew deserves a shot next year, the 2 results at home where abysmal, granted, but im not convinced that was all pardews fault, he cant make his players physically do the right thing, and in those games, he actually did what the FANS wantted, playing really attacking sides, and no jonas, haidaira at left back…. hes clearly not ready yet, yet everyone on here was saying pardew is an idiot for not playing him…. he did and look what happend….HA….. people need to have a good look in the mirror, we where championship a little while ago and we hadnt been back in europe for 8 years, hadnt seen players like benny and cabaye since the 90’s…. he has done so much for us under shocking circumstances…. he aint perfect by a long long way, he pisses me off at times, especially not going for the kill with 3 or more goals, but maybe hes nervous of getting completely ripped open cos of the naiveity of our squad??? hes learning still and he clearly loves our club… who else are we seriously going to get? that actually knows the premiership?? i think he will take a lot from this season, and come back stronger next year, give him a bloody chance, listen to moyes, it took him 3/4 seasons to actually impliment a style of play, i think pardew will do it next season, if we want success, we cant do what we always have and sack every manager we get when the goin gets tough, i see what people are saying that people like sir bobby and keegan didnt get as much of a chance but as much as we wish that we had given them a chance, we must give pardew the chance, i know he no where near the calibre of those guys, but we need to learn from our mistakes, im not against a new manager, but until we get one, we need to back him and the team, every manager has hard times, those are the times the club must stick by them, and for what pards did last year, and who he has brought in, i think he deserves that. Obviously all the things that annoy you guys annoy me aswell, especially the whole anita thing, why the hell isnt he playing?!?!! but at the end of the day, no one knows his squad of players better than him, and slating him writing out all these things he should do doesnt get anywhere and it just looks silly, hes a manager, were not.

    On another note though, really think we should have given(1) harper(2) a new deal, imagine if Alnwick have had to come on yesterday!!
