I’ve been asked a number of times this week to put a poll up on what readers think of Alan Pardew staying on as the Newcastle manager.
Alan Pardew – Newcastle manager
We didn’t want to put this up during the season, but there’s no reason we cannot now gauge how supporters feel – good or bad – towards Alan Pardew.
As we said earlier today, the first few games of next season will be very important, but he’s the manager, as he has been over the last 30 months – and to think he’s now the second longest serving Premier League manager is staggering – and shows how cut-throat things are in the Premier League – with all that money around.
If we can make 5th place next season, with the new money coming in form the new three years TV agreement Newcastle could make £92M compared to the £54M we made last year when we did finish 5th.
So we cannot see things in the Premier league getting any better any time soon – as far as the longevity of Premier League managers.
Let us know how you feel – and we’ll also put the poll on the home page.
