Alan Pardew – I’ve Learned A Lot


Alan Pardew went on nufcTV immediately after the third successive home defeat, in which we have conceded 10 goals and scored none.

Alan Pardew – I’ve learned a lot

So we’ve gone from 5th top to 5th bottom in a short twelve months, and that’s kind of par for the course for Newcastle fans.

Alan Pardew had this to say on nufcTV after the game:

“I think you see in the first half that we look a different team without the pressure on. The quality we showed in that half was terrific against a great Arsenal team who were bang in form.”

I wanted to highlight the fact that we get fifty two thousand and we’d probably get fifty two thousand in the Championship but that doesn’t mean to say that we should just expect that.”

“We have to deliver better and we have to deliver better performances and a better commitment to games.” “I’ve learned a lot and I’ll be better for it.”

It’s been a very poor season for Newcastle in the Premier League for multiple different reasons, although we did quite well in the Europa League.

But now we are not in the Europa League next season, we should do a lot better in the Premier League.

But what happens when we get back into the Europa League or the Champions League – sometime down the road – we have no idea.

But we’re looking forward to doing an awful lot better next season – we have to do an awful lot better next season.

This season is simply not good enough for Newcastle United.

    NUFC STEVE Yeah m8 the same people that told us about Ba clause has said he has a clause of 1yr pay off if he fails to finish in the top 10 still only rumours but wouldn’t be suprised if MA did.

    Re post:

    If we brought in a new manager we would need 3 first team players.

    If we keep Alan we need about 5-6 players.

    A new manager would incorporate new players into a system that benefits the talent already here.

    Alan needs different players who are able to play to his tactical pleasure.

    If Alan stays we need to sell our technical stars and bring in solid, hardworking, strong players who can play like Stoke and West Ham.

    Technical and Pardew doesn’t work, much like classical English grit and Wenger wouldn’t work.

    If we keep Pardew we have to sell the good players, no matter how much it hurts or else we’ll get relegated.

    That’s why for me it is imperative that Ashley sees that it is essential that we sack Pardew. It would be in the best interest of the players, fans, club , himself and even Alan Pardew.

    If he is sacked now he can be known as the man who was sacked despite a 5th placed finish rather than as the man who was sacked due to 2 consecutive relegation threatened seasons.

    You just gave me a bit of hope for the week! If Ashely is the shrewd businessman he’s meant to be surely he will take up that clause. Pardew is losing him money not only where we finished but in the overall value of the club. Surely he knows that free agents like Rafa and Blanc are available.

    Alan Pardew has been in charge of over 700 professional football games as a manager.

    He isn’t in his second season showing signs of progression, he isn’t going to come good overnight, he hasn’t got room to improve drastically after 14 years of management.

    I find it hilarious that people have faith in him.

    Too true.

    He reminds me of a cowboy builder who blames everything else when a customer wants to know why he hasn’t built the conservative to a decent standard.

    ‘I ain’t got the tools’

    ‘The guys have been sick’

    ‘The weathers been bad’

    ‘Ive got too many other jobs to do’

    ‘Your time scale put too much pressure on’

    ‘I’ll do it next week I promise’

    so pards didnt do the lap of honour today.
    It has always been common practice , and polite that the manager takes that walk with the players- the same as the manager always indicates to his players to salute the fans before they leave the field. Pardew has failed us again.
    What was his reason for not walking with his players?ok its obvious , but he didnt have the guts to face the crowd , as he knows he does not deserve our support . my wife who is a psychiatric nurse consultant , believed he wouldnt do it if we got beat , as he dosnt believe himself some of the things he says in the papers or on tv, , so to have to face a crowd and accept the applause would be , psychologically , a difficult situation to be in,
    which proves what he says in interviews is crap basically

    alan pardew just cant help himself can he ?

    I think you see in the first half that we look a different team without the pressure on. The quality we showed in that half was terrific against a great Arsenal team who were bang in form.”

    arsenal were awful in the first half and that made us look half decent. 2nd half arsenal had to step it up a bit- and they did easilly – not one shot on target from us – at home – in 90 mins. pardew get f///cked.

    Beattie25@8 (last post) – Isn’t it funny…etc.

    I would venture entirely predictable is more the phrase you are grasping for, sir. Not that fans ever really warmed to Big Sam at the time, and Ashley will never warm to any manager that might make themselves unsackable by dint of results or terrace popularity.

    A vicious circle really. Play the wrong way, the fans will hound you out. Play the right way, the owner will kick you out. The only logical answer is to be utterly clueless, embarrassingly so, and so put yourself beyond the reach of justifiable supporter criticism on one hand or executive reproach on the other. Thus everyone just collectively scratches their heads and pretends it isn’t really happening; and so we sleep walk into the next season

    “You tell him, no YOU tell him….!”etc.

    Thing about Rafa though;
    1) he wants to stay in England (Newcastle is that far from his family)
    2) he wants a big club where he will be respected and loved (Everton arsenal … None can give him that) only us and lpool could do that
    3) he knows himself that the group we have here + 3-4 quality signings could make them challenging for top 4-6
    4) he said he wouldn’t mind a long term project
    5) mike Ashely is seemingly going to spend 15-20 mil this summer. That is all Rafa needs plus Watever he gets for selling players. He isn’t a massive spender.
    1 problem is his salary is about 5/6 times pardews.

    I do not really blame Percy for ALL that has happened this season. He has probably tried his best but in my opinion he cannot do the job. He should never had been offered the job in the first place.
    I see the last gasps/death throws of someone who is about to get the boot.
    I believe regardless of who the manager is AC will be returning.
    Lastly we will bet getting 4-5 new players and maybe a surprise signing from El Gourdo.
    Sack Llambias you posted earlier on today some guff about weeds and flowers in an effort to make an analogy to the blog? I was going to reply but had better things to do. As I recall I had to go for a shite.

    I don’t see your point??

    Wigan only conceded 5 more goals than us and they were going all out attack and had some truly awful players in defence.

    We conceded 68 goals and for the majority had internationals throughout the back 4.

    Conceding doesn’t mean you will lose out on points, not scoring guarantees it.

    If Martinez took over and had decent defenders to work with who knows what he could do.

    Learn how to accept defeat, learn how to get the players to pass and move and attack more. Learn to respect fans, learn to drop your fave players when they are off form and oh yeah, learn to quit.

    Martinez would be good but he has massive question marks over him. He may have had poor players but managers like Rodgers, Lambert, Fat Sam, jol, pulis ….. didn’t have great players either yet they each have had seasons where they never had a sniff of relegation. Martinez was there wat 5 years? And never once cracked a mid table finish?

    Beattie25 That is my point we need to tighten up and martinez is not the man to do that but it may be the only manager that will want to come here we have good defenders but not the right coaching to orginise it im hoping Mbiwa will be alot better when he can speak better english but if not then sign Sakho or a french speaking CB then he will be fine Ive noticed during the games Colo and Taylor have to use hand signals during the game.

    We don’t need to tighten up, we need to attack more and retain the ball.

    Inviting pressure is the worst way to play football and that’s when you need to be tighter than a Yorkshireman.

    If you keep the ball and use it properly then the opponents can be neutralised and not offer much trouble to our defence.

    That’s the way forward.

    Arsenal have a weak defence but through ball retention that defence is reps rely tested.

    How many shots did we have on target today?

    We can be tight all we want but it counts for jack if we don’t try and score.

    Beattie25 U r right about retaining the ball but we need to build from the back ask any manager and they all say you start with a solid back then work forward we have never had a solid back apart from last season until taylor got injured the mid is good enough Cabs can pick passes but we need a mobile st Cisse is a finisher can’t hold or turn anyone doesn’t have the pace Goofy never gets a chance up top so how can we retain the ball when we start bad from the back and hoof it to a finisher thats what im saying.

    I still do not understand all these multiple posters -people truthfully should stand or fall by what they say. Inventing other personas to applaud what they have written (probably because none else agrees with them) is truly strange behaviour.
