Pardew The Second Longest Serving Premier League Manager

2:56 pm, Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 232 Comments

With Tony Pulis leaving Stoke City by mutual consent today,  and Alex Ferguson retiring from Manchester United the second longest serving Premier League manager is now Newcastle’s Alan Pardew.

Alan Pardew with Tony Pulis

Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger is now the longest serving and he’s been in the Arsenal job since 1996, and the Frenchmen has qualified the London club in every single season for the Champions League,  since he joined them.

That’s some record of consistency, even though some Arsenal fans like Piers Morgan, want him sacked.

Tony Pulis has been at Stoke since 2006, and had them promoted to the Premier League in 2008, and kept them in the Premier League since that time, but his long ball methods have come under increasing attack, including some Stoke fans this season.

The news today is that Stoke will try to tempt Rafa Benitez with a £3M a year deal, but we’d be surprised if Rafa joins Stoke City this summer, he may even end up as the new Real Madrid coach and Napoli are also after him.

The short careers of Premier League managers has to do with the cut throat business of the Premier League, where massive amounts of money are at stake, and it doesn’t look to be getting any better with the gigantic new TV deal about to start next season, where each club will get around an additional £20M or more each season.

For the record,  Alan Pardew signed on at Newcastle in early December of 2010, following the surprise firing of Chris Hughton – so he’s been in the Newcastle job for less than 30 months.

Alan is meeting today with owner Mike Ashley in others to sort exactly what happened last season – which was the second worst Premier League season ever for Newcastle – when we finished 5th bottom, after finishing 5th top the season before – Pardew’s first full season at the helm.

    shows what state todays current footy climate is like when pards is 2nd longest serving manager. what a joke that is

  • 2 estechco // May 22, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    Repost – If, as appears increasingly likely, we are sticking with AP for the foreseeable future, what do people think about Beardo being promoted to our ‘offensive’ coach? Hopefully then he can get the best out of our attacking options whilst AP spends 4 days on the defence!?!

    Tsunki…Don’t know what your idea of a “hoot” is, but so far I am not impressed.

    Where’s the entertainment? Buffet? Open bar?

    Honestly.

    That old promise of jelly and hats. I’ve been let down before and refuse to get excited until I see it with my own eyes.

    Is that a bouncy castle I see?

  • 11 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:02 PM

    From last article…….You know….. A LOT of people knew, when they saw the title of the last article, that it was, without doubt, going to really p1ss them off. Yet, they still read it, and proceded to whinge epically about it. What do you want? Sympathy? You only have yourselves to blame :p 

  • 12 Indian Magpie // May 22, 2013 at 3:03 PM

    Bet all you Pardew supporters will be fed up by the time pre season Finishes

  • 23 county down magpie // May 22, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    We’ll see what the lay of the land is at the end of the day. Now is the time for Ashley to sack him or back him. If he stays we need new fitness, attacking, set piece coaches. I’d personally bring in a much more foreign set of coaches, dutch, german, french etc and leave pards to the man management side of things as he does seem to do well at this. If MA sacks him then funk knows who we’re gonna end up with but I fear it will be a sidestep rather than a step up. Only time will tell

  • 26 JackButler // May 22, 2013 at 3:09 PM

    Another shitty record that Pardew has brought

  • 27 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:11 PM

    Im so fed up now that i am going to mock anyone who posts the same old moans and groans about pardew, simply because of their refusal to change the record. It might make it fun.

  • 28 Lilongwe Geordie // May 22, 2013 at 3:12 PM

    Estecho,
    I’d prefer Beardsley to be moved to a non coaching role altogether. The development squad haven’t developed, so where has he proved any coaching ability? The only reason they had a good second half of the season is because we were awful in the first half and matched with others who were equally poor.

  • 29 Tsunki // May 22, 2013 at 3:13 PM

    Markaccus – that record is a double ‘A’ side :)

  • 30 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:14 PM

    Indian….. my first target…… have you anything new to offer? How about a copy of your cv so i can send it to sjp. Put your money where your blog-mouth is.

  • 32 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:17 PM

    Indian…. did you coach your side to the top of the Indian Premier League? Oh hang on, thats cricket isn’t it. How many runs do you think pardew will get in the final?

  • 33 sparky55 // May 22, 2013 at 3:17 PM

    pardew is the luckiest man alive who thanks to a massive casino debt is still in a job…one things for sure…there’s no footballing reason why Pardew has still got a job so it’s that or he has some pictures

    Pardew isn’t going anywhere, we all know that. If you start arguing with people they’ll attack you with statistics, opinions and the hilarious “friend” who has “contacts” who knows that Pardew is going

  • 48 Le Belfast 007 // May 22, 2013 at 3:25 PM

    I honestly think that nufcfans twatter account is on the clubs payroll. That’s the only possible explanation for them constantly kissing Pardews ass.

    Strange that Pardew declares interest in Carroll last week and then we’re not interested.

    I’m just clutching at straws here lol

  • 63 JAMSHA // May 22, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    only way to get pardew out is a peacefull protest near sjp….or mayb spam emails to m.a sayn we need a change .parwed needs to be sacked…. this club will never win untill we get a trophy managers in mould of rafa

  • 64 Jackel001 // May 22, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    For pardew to say last week that he wants Carroll back and for NUFC to say that they aren’t interested tells me that he may be gone and the new manager doesn’t want Carroll..

  • 65 Ibizatoon - Back By Popular Demand // May 22, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    Belfast…Joking aside? Are you leaving? Okay, okay, short answer, no news.

  • 66 martoon // May 22, 2013 at 3:33 PM

    Markaccus – I think most of us knew deep down that Pardew would be staying – at least now we can boast a previous LMA manager of the year winner and the 2nd longest serving premiership manager. So it’s not all bad 😉

  • 67 Le Belfast 007 // May 22, 2013 at 3:33 PM

    It’s amazing that these peoples “friends” dont go to Sky or the BBC to give this amazing bit of news. No, what I’ll do is, I’ll tell my firend who is on the NUFC blog. Genius

  • 72 check the toastie // May 22, 2013 at 3:38 PM

    Well its been fun at times however im off, never to return, Pardew is a F#cking Disgrace and now Ashley is, 16th is totally unaccpetable and accepting home defeats and completely clueless excuses has shown me that Ashley truly doesnt give two f#cks about the Toon.

    The sooner the pr#ck sells up the better. Will return when the assh0les f#ck off. Or when Pardew starts to take some honesty tablets.

    Goodbye.

  • 73 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:38 PM

    Martoon… yes. And tp be honest i am not bothered if he stays. I always said its not all his fault so if he gets the chance then fine. Just hope he is more attacking next year.

    Jamsha. Are you going to make the placards up? Also, how much sway do you have with the newcastle board? You must have some if yoi think a protest will make ANY DIFFERENCE WHAT SO EVER 😀

  • 74 GenralHez // May 22, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    Taking Puncheon shows how we have been beaten into submission, next you’ll be saying that Cole is a better option to Shola

  • 84 remember69 // May 22, 2013 at 3:46 PM

    Breaking news – I hear that MA has heard the fans’ cries for silverware and is bringing back a manager with proven success – Joe Harvey.
    Joe has a proven record (Fairs Cup winner 1969, FA cup as player) and was responsible for remarkable purchases for NUFC (John Tudor for < 1000 pounds, Terry McDermott etc).

    He may be old (or even dead) but oozes a lifetime of experience.

    If not available I believe Joe Kinnear is looking for a job (now there's a guy that makes Pardew look good).

    Be careful for what you wish for…. :-)

  • 85 Hatem's better than Messi // May 22, 2013 at 3:46 PM

    Nice for Pardew to be able to tell his grandkids he was the second longest serving Prem manager … for a day.

    Is the rumour still that he’s going?

  • 86 Laurent Robert 32 // May 22, 2013 at 3:46 PM

    If those season review forms from the Chronicle got back to the club, Pardew won’t like my thoughts of him at all. I’m sure a lot of you gave a brutal piece of your mind as well.

  • 87 Markaccus // May 22, 2013 at 3:47 PM

    Sparky…. i wouldnt worry. Most of our players have been pulled appart by some one or other on here over the season… so luckilly we dont have any good ones to sell.

  • 88 geordie157 // May 22, 2013 at 3:47 PM

    Newcastle look to throw former premier league striker a lifeline. Emile Heskey, will be brought in on a free to provide competition for Shola Ameobi.

  • 89 geordie157 // May 22, 2013 at 3:49 PM

    Agree on Puncheon he’d be a decent squad player who has more to offer than Obertan, Sammy and Jonas on the wing.

  • 90 sparky55 // May 22, 2013 at 3:51 PM

    can’t beleive we’re now talking about puncheon as being a decent acquisition…Pardew has really got us shooting for the fcuking stars hasn’t he. I fcuking give up!

  • 91 AshtreeKid // May 22, 2013 at 3:52 PM

    pointless arguing about it just saying what I think – he proven in the prem and knows how to cross a ball and where the goal is unlike some in our squad – Cole is a definite NO – wouldn’t say I’ve been beaten into submission for having a differing view to your negative one (although I do feel pretty negative myself at the moment!)

  • 92 sparky55 // May 22, 2013 at 3:54 PM

    Markaccus..shame of it is we’ve now got a really good squad and all we really needed to compete at the right end of the table was a decent manager and we’re about to throw it all away.

    Two things I have received from my Heinz rep

    Carrolls a non-story, he’s hanging on hoping we’ll make an offer but none will be forthcoming as we have other ( cheaper?) targets

    Pards – Jobs safe, they are talking about targets and tactics for next season – pardews job is not on the agenda

    Afraid I don’t know the targets but PEA or Carroll are not on the list according to tomato sauce

    They are also talking about possible bids on players and price we will demand for them according to brown sauce

    No matter who signs for us, as long as Pardew stays I’ll be very disappointed. Means another season of rubbish football. Witnessing it for 2 and a half season. And watch top players who come to us, become nothing more than mediocre workhorses.

    Sissokko, Cabaye etc. So I don’t really care who comes. They are gonna turn crap anyway.

  • 112 JackButler // May 22, 2013 at 4:15 PM

    Pardew has turned proven quality into nothing but shadows of the players they once were and could be again, Puncheon would just be another workhorse, we need to think bigger than that, but that means having more than a one dimensional manager. Yes Pucheon would be a better option than Obertan and Jonas but thats a damning indictment of our current squad and manager

    And all this talk about pullis I would never want him but my cousin was making some good points to me yesterday about how he done more than us this year with stoke. Just shows how poor pardrew really is.

  • 135 Marty-Toon // May 22, 2013 at 4:38 PM

    Ma didn’t give him an 8 year ridiculous contract to give him the kick although he does want nufc in the PL and Pards came very close to losing there.
    He certainly won’t let it go past Christmas if we’re doing badly,so Pards ought to get some tactics help off coaches that can.

  • 137 JackButler // May 22, 2013 at 4:39 PM

    kevymartins

    His confidence is shot, just like Cabaye, Tiote and everyone else, playing on the right of midfield will do that to a man, he’s not a target man but is played like one.

    He was played in the right way when he joined us and it’s no fluke that he was scoring for fun, but pardew changed the way we played and everyone has struggled since

  • 138 Tommyy // May 22, 2013 at 4:40 PM

    Gotta say maintaining Pardew puts a big downer on what could and should be a great summer of squad building.
    Now i just feel detached from it all and not even excited by who we might bring in. Horrible feeling. First time I’ve had it in years.

  • 139 Generic Commenter // May 22, 2013 at 4:40 PM

    If Pardew goes there will be so many “I told you so” and “my friend was right”. People will be hunting others down who at one point stood up against them in previous blogs. I wish this blog had an auto-refresh, it’d be good to sit down with a beer and watch digital hell break loose!

  • 142 Tommyy // May 22, 2013 at 4:44 PM

    I’m going to go out and say that a top 8 aim next season is not ambitious enough. We know that this squad (with additions) is capable of cracking the champs league spots if utilized correctly and without Europa League.
    Therefore we should be looking at top 6 minimum and not constantly trying to dampen expectations. If we’re not top 8 and playing some good football come Christmas then surely he has to go?

  • 143 kevymartins // May 22, 2013 at 4:46 PM

    @Wolfshead It all depends on the players we bring in as well ..In all honesty I think if we bring in 1 or 2 quality strikers a winger and maby another 1 pardrew could get the job done. Impossible to predict whats going to happen that’s why im just going with the board on this one.

    Yes I would love him out but I will support either decision.

    @Kevy – he’s offside because they delay making the pass – our midfield are fcukinh hopeless at spotting a pass, they seem to come to our club okay and fairly talented which is a disgrace, luckily our coaching staff move heaven and earth to knock any skill out of them, giving their limited resources they are doing an amazing job.
    Cisse better buck his ideas up though, he barely makes the top five offside strikers in the prem falling behind Suarez, Holt, RVP, Adebayor, Walcott, Lukaku – he’s a joke, we should get rid and sign Benteke the king of offside and way out in front of everyone else in the offside league

    Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
    And doesn’t know where to find them.
    Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
    Bringing their tails behind them.
    Little Bo peep fell fast asleep
    And dreamt she heard them bleating,
    But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
    For they were all still fleeting.
    Then up she took her little crook
    Determined for to find them.
    She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
    For they left their tails behind them.
    It happened one day, as Bo peep did stray
    Into a meadow hard by,
    There she espied their tails side by side
    All hung on a tree to dry.
    She heaved a sigh, and wiped her eye,
    And over the hillocks went rambling,
    And tried what she could,
    As a shepherdess should,
    To tack again each to its lambkin.

    The thought of starting another season with him in charge drains me inside and I’m sure those who see similar mismanagement each week are having the same kind of emotions.

    What Pardew does and says defies logic, and the lacks respect given to the fans who pay over a thousand pounds each season to go to SUPPORT the team. The support is not reciprocated judging by what we have had to endure.

    Remember, when Pardew 1st appointed and say that Newcastle was a big club and fans are dying for trophies.
    He was like saying “I’m the Man to bring you trophies”

    Now his words / though was so much different…

    “Forget about winning the top 6 teams, we have to business to do here, let concentrate together and fight for safety y for next season.”

    “Hull and Cardiff will be a big threat to us next season for our relegation fight .”

    “Be afraid of Sunderland and Stoke, Swansea, Southampton, WBA and Norwich. They will be a threat for our 17 position next season.”

    It will be naive to trust Alan Pardew words.

    Didn’t even have the guts to do the lap of hons with the players.

    TimeLine for Pardew: 2nd half of next season.

    1. He better get the team going (Ugly or not), win games and be a threat to the top 6.

    (Anyway this guy can’t coach nice attacking football, too much coaching and technical know-how, which he knows shit about during his career with all his previous clubs)

    Again, ugly football can only last so long..players get tired and frustrated (not enjoying playing anymore and more problems will arise) eg. fake injury, ill, virus attack, poor performance most of the game like this season, players wanted to leave and etc)

    Unless Pardew get his players from US – American Football League. Those are the players that can outlast and enjoy his tactics but for every game just beware of reds…

    “I am here to stay and i wish all Newcastle’s fans the best”

    ..btw, if we are relegated its not my fault its the players and the Owners fault.

    My next employee will understand. How my philosophy of attacking football is working, but the Owner and the Fans got me out of job.

    Alot of players whom i have bought in to Newcastle are doing well now.

A quality and experienced centre back available for nothing and he goes to Fulham. Speaking of Fulham, we shouldn’t have let them get to Berbatov before us either. He would have made such a difference to the team this season. Without him Fulham would have been in big trouble.

    Time to forget about the silly 26 and under policy and get in some quality and experience. As shown by those two transfers, it doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Just a couple more months for his skin to get used to the environment outside of the tube, and he’ll be ready. Pardew is a dead man walking

    Increasing rumours that Jupp Heynckes has agreed a deal with Madrid. Has Ancelotti made a mistake here? #PSG #Real

  • 188 DxK // May 22, 2013 at 5:48 PM

    I was privvy to the Mike Ashley, Alan Pardew, Derek Llambias meeting the other day, it was actually quite interesting…

    MA: “What went wrong lad, I thought we had it sussed!”

    AP: That bloody Europa League is what done it.”

    MA: “What about the players? they didn’t step up.”

    AP: “It was that clown Carr, he brought a load of bloody foreigners with skills and things, I ain’t used to coaching skills.”

    DL: “Ok, let’s sack Carr.. Anything else?”

    AP: “Yes, get rid of all the French players apart from Gabby – he’s half English now, flog Anita for a few quid and sign the best of British.”

    MA: “Good stuff, now we’re cooking, what about Colo.”

    DL: “Well I finally talked him into staying – £220k per week, 7% of the club and weekly trips back to Argentina to play part time for Valez Sarsfield.”

    MA: “You silver tongued devil, captain.. My captain!”

    AP: “Speaking of captains, could we make Shola captain as well and get the boy Nolan back as captain for £12m? We can raise the dosh for him, Carroll and Barton by selling the French!”

    MA: “The fans will be angry to see Cabaye and Ben Arfa go though, how can we soften ’em up?”

    AP: “Get the fans favourite, Seamus Givens back from Villa and fetch James Tompkins in from the happy Hammers!.. Also Gabs wouldn’t mind a go at being captain.”

    DL: “Ok, sorted lads, here’s next season’s lineup;

    GIVEN (Capt)

    PERCH
    COLO (Capt)
    TOMPKINS
    SANTON

    TIOTE
    NOLAN (Capt)
    BARTON (Vice Captain)
    JONAS (Co-Manager)
    OBERTAN (Capt)

    CARROLL

    AP: “Nice touch giving Jonas half of my job lads, I’m not going to argue, he’s my home slice, I never had a mate with long hair before, so cool! We just need backup for Andy and Shola and we are sorted!”

    2 hours later…
    Shefqi Kuqi: “It is a great day for me, signing this 4 year deal with Newcastle, my exploits at Oldham 18 months ago show that I can be relied on.”

  • 189 brklyngeordie // May 22, 2013 at 5:50 PM

    ok now that Carroll rumours will disappear cant we really sort out our striker search now my order for who we should go after 1.Lukaku this is a kid and already looks very comfortable in Prem worth more the the 15mill andy went for though imo if not snap him up 2.PEA coming into his own this season and very attack minded and can free himself up and get shots off 3. Bony i believe would do well in Prem and certainly occupy some center halves at the least and allow cisse to poach ala Ba ( and someone on here compared him to kenwyne jones give me a break)

  • 190 sparky55 // May 22, 2013 at 5:50 PM

    ravensd…hahahahaha lol…in that case he should be cloning dougie livingstone…at least we’d win something!

  • 191 89Norcal // May 22, 2013 at 5:50 PM

    lol nice script there DxK

    You guys really turn on the style whenever there’s a Pardew article

  • 192 Laurent Robert 32 // May 22, 2013 at 5:52 PM

    This bringing in and needing more quality players is a making the most of a bad situation but papering over the huge gaps (not just cracks). We’ve already brought in £20m of good players in January yet Pardew has misused them. It’s outrageous.

    We need a few more top players but anyone could manage the team and there’d be a slight improvement. The point is, performance wise, Pardew will be relying on those players as individuals to nick points again, and we’ll again continue the disjointed football which he’s had us playing since he’s got here.

  • 193 GeordieDan // May 22, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Total Sport has just confirmed that Pardew has bottled the live interview for the 2nd week running!

    Hasn’t confirmed when he will actually show up now either.

    If he was honestly too pig-headed to reailse he’d get hammered on there and decided to change his mind as a consequence then he really is deluded. He’s just embarrassed himself again to be honest.

    What a muppet!

    in all honestly mate i don’t think it’ll be wise to bring in top quality players under Pardew’s control, i wouldn’t be surprise if MA, DL, AP start bringing in players over the height of 6 foot 4 to play his star trek tactic ( going where no one’s gone before )

  • 199 Black and White with an army lol // May 22, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    hopefully it will be Henry the 8th ( off with his head )

  • 200 DxK // May 22, 2013 at 6:02 PM

    I’m expecting Pardew to keep his job, Carroll to go to West Ham (sounds like he might be out for 3-4 months now) and at least one of our big players to leave.

    I am slightly worried that Carlton Cole’s just been released by West Ham – Could that be Pardew’s idea of a cheap option? Maybe he’ll say that Demba Ba was a free as well or something like that to justify it.

    On a side note, I read Mick Quinn’s article in the Chronicle and although some of it made sense, a lot was just wishy washy cliche. He said Marveaux and Anita weren’t up to the task, but didn’t mention Tiote as far as I remember. Think he’s just been listening to what dozy oafs like Adrian Durham say on Talksport.

  • 201 Bambams // May 22, 2013 at 6:02 PM

    It tells its own story when I am not looking forward to next season already……

  • 205 Laurent Robert 32 // May 22, 2013 at 6:06 PM

    Black and white with an army, yes I know. It’s all messed up isn’t it. Pardew’s ideal team is that Stoke side. Launch, launch launch.

    We’ve played the most long balls in the league with our side, so you could just imagine the stats if he was in his dream job at Stoke with all the tall lads.

  • 206 Indian Magpie // May 22, 2013 at 6:06 PM

    Bambans exactly my thoughts

    whats the odds on all managers?

  • 208 Readingmag // May 22, 2013 at 6:09 PM

    Bets on …what will happen…

    Pardew stays….joking apart who would take over.

    Cabs or Benny leave if not both for 12- 30m.

    We buy a French lad no one knows….but is ok, young and has potential for approx 7/8 millon

    and one or two other lads (1 x forward), again not bad but no big signing.

    Wor Andy signs for the cockneys ..

    Season starts….promising initially after a couple of decent results. The mad one down the road gets sacked mid Sept…..All is good.

    The unwashed bring in a steady manager, injuries kick in.

    We loose to Hull away but beat the unwashed….okishhh…

    Then loose …anumber of games nov \ dec…alarm bells are going mad…..

    Pardew goes in comes Clarky….its ok He one of us..but needs time to rebuild…..okishhhh

    THIS TIME NEXT YEAR will be the same

  • 209 Black and White with an army lol // May 22, 2013 at 6:09 PM

    i think the Stoke Chairmen should sign Pardew, hell i’m willing to pay for his compensation to get him out of our club

  • 210 bzak12 // May 22, 2013 at 6:12 PM

    Coral bookies odds:- Pardew to be manager 1st game of season 1/2 Odds not to be manager 6/4

  • 211 Black and White with an army lol // May 22, 2013 at 6:14 PM

  • 212 89Norcal // May 22, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    With any luck we’ll sign Pulis then

  • 213 croftus5678 // May 22, 2013 at 6:22 PM

    i think we will see pards next season so no point moaning !
    we can however change the staff around him assistant manager and coaching staff ect (worked wonders for moyes)
    maybe carr can scout decent staff for us :-)
