With Alan Pardew having his showdown meeting with Mike Ashley today, we should have guessed that somebody somewhere, would send out a tweet that Alan has been sacked.
Alan Pardew – wild and daft rumors
It only takes somebody to tweet that Alan Pardew has been fired for it to spread like wildfire – especially since a number of Newcastle fans seem to want Alan fired after our very poor performance last season.
We should point out that Mike Ashley has already had six managers in the six years he’s owned the club.
And reports of getting Rafa Benitez in have to be way off the mark – since we remember Rafa wanting to spend around £50M on players each summer while at Liverpool, and he wouldn’t get any of that at Newcastle, and he would hardly be a viable candidate for the Newcastle management – sorry to bring up logic here.
We’d very surprised, shocked in fact, if these rumors are in any way true – we think somebody has simply made this one up.
