Pardew Staying Put To Take Newcastle Up The League


News coming from the Evening Chronicle that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will remain at the Tyneside club, and work with Joe Kinnear in his new role as Director of Football.

Alan Pardew – staying at Newcastle

As far as stability is concerned that’s good news, and who knows maybe Alan will get on well with Joe Kinnear – you never know – they are both Cockneys after all.

Alan gave the Chronicle a short message today:

“I am staying – to take the club up the league.”

And since pre-season training starts in two weeks time, at least we’ll be in better shape than we were four years ago following relegation.

That’s when the players returned to pre-season, and we didn’t have a permanent manager,  as Alan Shearer had not been appointed as the manager (as had been expected) that summer.

So Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood took the training on that first day, and to cut a long (very long) story short, they had Newcastle promoted a short ten months later, and we were back in the big time again.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the same could happen now, and Newcastle could be a top six club next May.

It’s possible – and we have to keep believing.

Don’t we?

I have to leave for a few hours for an important  Doctor’s appointment –  maybe when I get back we’ll have a new owner? 😀

    So Alan has finally broke his silence and it doesn’t sound convincing, is that all he’s got to say like.

    I don’t think its that bad a news, if Pardew goes, Kinnear will slot straight in as manager.
    Pardew > Kinnear ANY day of the week.

    Alan gave the Chronicle a short message today:

    “I am staying – to take the club up the league.”

    The long message was:

    “I can’t believe that Mike has employed this nutter, he’s a complete odd ball and will cause nothing but problems at the club. At least I have a track record as a proven, top class manager, a tactical genius who’s man management and motivational skills are unparalleled in world football who more than deserve’s my eight year contract. Unlike Joe Kinnear I can and do walk on water”

    Nothing yet. I never post what he tells me as I think he is full of crap but I thought his view was quite an interesting one.

    He is 100% confident this is good for the club and that Kinnear will balance the club out better than Llambias did.

    He didn’t mention how Pardew was feeling about it all other than to say Alan was heartbroken over last year.

    As for transfers he reckons Joe will listen to Carr and Alan and find middle ground before telling Ashley who we should go for, regardless of cost. It’s then up to Ashley to say yes or no.

    Apparently we will be looking for the best deals not the cheapest, hence why Douglas will not be coming in. He was the cheapest CB on the list but so far down Carr’s recommendations that the deal was called off.

    I won’t be airing anymore of his views as I think he is talking rubbish but it interested me.

    I’m going back to my fury, distrust and hatred. Back to my negativity and belief that the club is in free fall and we’ll sign nobody.

    Ah, the rollercoaster life of a Magpie fan…… it’s never boring….
    If Joke Innear is turning away players I pray that he’s got something better lined up.

    One thing for sure – all those who complained in the past about lack of information from the club must be salivating now – this guy just won’t shut up.

    I hate Pardew as much as the next Pardew hater but all this will make him or break him.

    If he starts of poorly he’ll be fired. No more chances for him.

    I have always said I want Pardew to prove me wrong and I still retain that.

    IMO he will not last the season and Kinnear will not take his job.

    Something about what my mate told me made feel a tinge of positivity for the first time in over a year about nufc.

    Kinnear has known Carr for 20 years and doesn’t know Pardew.

    Llambias knew Pardew for years and never knew Carr before NUFC.

    I know who I’d rather the club back between Carr and Pardew relating to players.

    If Carr gets his picks then Alan has to use them properly or we will find a manager who can.

    I’m not saying I am now positive Beattie but I am starting to think all is not as bad as it seems. Lets see what happens in July relating to incomings and go from there.

    Maybe I have finally hit such a low that I’m starting g to rise from the bottom but, maybe Joe isn’t so bad after all.

    I for one am fcuking glad Derek has finally gone. His casino tactics never did us any good, his recommendations were always shit and his 5 year plan failed.

    Like you I expect Pardew to be gone during next season, but……………and this is the major issue I have with Kinnear in the post of DoF, who in their right mind would want to come and work under him???

    In the past most fans have felt that any manager of worth would struggle to be able to under Ashley, but now they would have to work under Ashley and the loose canon that is Joe Kinnear.

    The list of quality manager that would potentially come to NUFC has just got a lot smaller

    AP will be out by Christmas, I’m sure. Joe to see out the rest of the season. Still, if we sign a small fast striker and two top wingers, they can do well in spite of this dude.

    Instead of all this upstairs politics, the real need is for technical coaches! Why is that so hard to see for them!? Both Pardew and Kinnear play terribly football, so how are we going to change that? It’s always right ideas and wrong decisions at this club. A boardroom of savvy fans would be a far greater asset than any of these idiots.

    I agree, AP will have a very short leash and JK will side with GC a lot more and MA is a huge fan. I didn’t think MA was all about cheaper options, Carr is smart enough to see a good deal and identify clauses. Look at Cabaye, Tiote, Sissoko and then we did spend 10m on Cisse, so I don’t believe that we wont go for 15m players, it just has to be pitched right to MA, from GC and JK we might see some real class come to the toon!

    As none of us have the faintest idea of wat is going on I am going to reserve judgement until I see something to back it up.
    One thing for sure, MA is not afraid to make changes. If a MA/DL fallout did occur after the Mackems horror it could well be that MA was unhappy with constraints DL was putting on player recruiting and is willing to invest to mov the team up the table.
    That would explain as possible change in direction for a CB (ie willing to pay for a better option)- I think the next signing will be telling.

    As always, I live in hope……

    Can we just sign a couple of players that can play either side of papisse in a 433, or move onto the wing for a 451 and one as backup, sell williamson and promote good to the first team squad, sorted! oh and get rid of jfk! i cant see why any manager including pardew would want to work under someone who is less experienced than them, and thats not even taking into account jfk’s repulsive personality!

    JFK’s appointment is bad news.
    He has made even a bigger fool of himself since Sunday.
    The Club in true style have handled his appointment badly.
    Quite rightly we have all (most) had time to vent our fury and let off steam – some will continue (on and on and on)
    But we have what we have and even though the future doesn’t look bright, I think we will have to judge by results, starting with players in and out.
    You never know we may start the season with a much stronger and better quality squad, then next it will be time to judge performance.

    The same could be said for players who would work under Pardew.

    I think European players are more used to oddball chairmen, rowdy DoF and clubs in turmoil than we are.

    I honestly think that a decent player playing for a decent European club would still come if they got the right money and that’s thanks to our PL status, our stadium and fans.

    I never thought 5 years ago Ben Arfa would play for and respect Alan Pardew but it has happened.

    I’ll agree it will for the time being be a hard sell but many players move on the advice of their advisors not on their own opinions.

    I think our team is an attractive one and people will want to play alongside Colo, Debuchy, Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Sissoko etc… regardless of who the mouth cockney is.

    Call me a born again nufc fan, but I think if Aubemenyang was offered a massive deal he’d come.

    In the future Kinnears comments relating to names should be looked at like its his comedic calling card not like he is an embarrassing stain on the club. That opinion was generated by many (including myself) because we were looking for any excuse to hate him. If we liked him we’d have laughed it off.

    If Ashley does take control of transfers then it won’t matter who the DoF is.

    I personally prefer the posters that offer evidence and reason rather than slogans and propaganda but I fully acknowledge that there should be a place for every conceivable point of view on what is an excellent blog.
    Reading the Mag’s Summer editorial Mark Jensen has got it right on Pardew. He writes of Pardew being in a weak position when dealing with Llambias and reiterates the point of our manager being let down last summer. The points that Pardew made in a Radio Newcastle interview at the time was of scoring goals from all around the team. Pardew was the driving force for change to the squad and it was Llambias who not only dragged his heels then but also in January. My understanding is that Pardew in fear of his job made it very clear to Ashley that nobody was listening when he was saying what had to be done to build on a 5th place finish. Jensen makes the point that Pardew isn’t Keegan or Sir Bobby but he isn’t JFK( sic written before his return) Souness or Fat Sam. I personally believe that Pardew welcomes Kinnear’s arrival if only to see the back of Llambias. He doesn’t want t be taken for granted so he’s not rushing to make his views known.

    Are we gonna see any additional coaches added to Pardew’ staff?
    And what are the club doing to solve our long running injury nightmare?

    These are the two questions I think most fans will want answered

    If Kinnear has pulled the plug on Douglas because Carr doesn’t rate him an he doesn’t want to get him in just because he is free. Then in my opinion he has done a good thing there. Lets all just wait and see where we are at the end this transfer window before we start judging what has happen. You can only judge people by their results

    He’ll never go of his own accord for sure, he is not a quitter. He’ll take it the chin I think. Take us up the league though… lol, be nice to win a few away games. We were lucky to stay up last season. Could easily have gone down. Be nice to travel to an away game and come home after witnessing a victory for a change. At least something is happening at the club rather than nothing. Can’t really be any worse, we’re all used to the ups and downs anyways. HWTL

    That’s true but I think if the dust settles come August and we have a strong team and some decent signing here will still be Jo shortage of managerial candidates lining up to take one of the biggest challenges in football.

    Again European managers are more used to crazy owners, loud mouthed DoF and controversial clubs. A young manager would still see it as a massive opportunity. We wouldn’t be able to take a CL manager but we could still aim for top 8 clubs all over Europe for potential managers.

    We are still a big club regardless of Kinnear.

    Wtf am I saying?

    Beattie your a friend of the blog. Your great on your own its when you team up with that marvellous loud clown that we all bailout on mass. Glad you broke up the partnership not sure whether you resigned or were fired mind you. I don’t have a problem with your conspiracy theories. If they are seen to fail you can always ignore the flaws in your theory by effectively sticking your fingers in your ears and go “la la la I can’t hear you” I find the time to read your input your a Geordie and a football man.

    I think Managers like Poyet and Clark would not have much issue coming to the club. It is Managers like Benitez, Van Gaal etc, so it will be interesting who would be in MA and JK thoughts if the sack did come for AP.
