Alan Pardew To Turn Negative Into A Positive


Alan Pardew last weekend directed a foul-mouthed tirade at Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, and it was done on the spur of the moment, shortly after a perfectly good Cheick Tiote goal was wrongly disallowed by the referee in the first half.

Alan Pardew – to work more closely with local boys’ clubs

While the FA mentioned Pardew’s  unwanted comments after the game they took no action, either by fining the Newcastle manager or banning him from the touch-line.

But Alan has today said that he is going to do a number of things to make up for those unwanted comments, and one action is to work more closely with local boys’ clubs – and that sounds good.

This is what Alan said today about his verbal outburst as well as the important game tomorrow:

“I think it was done in a dismissive manner and not an aggressive one,” he said. “Nevertheless, I’m not proud of the comments.”

“I’m going to punish myself and I’ve got a couple of ideas locally that will take up my time and money.”  

“We’ve lost the last four and in three of them we’ve been very good.”  “We got a bad break in that game in terms of Tiote’s disallowed goal, but we’re playing well and we need to take that to West Ham.”

West Ham’s crucial 2-0 victory at Cardiff City last weekend was their first win in the last eight league games, and therefore the team will be upbeat and will try to get a decent result at home tomorrow against a Newcastle side, who have lost their last four games.

But this is the type of game where we have to make our advantages count, and we are a better team than West Ham – but we’ve got to play at or near our best in order to get the win we so badly need.

And West Ham are fighting for the Premier League survival, so they will be (very) up for this game.

What do you think?

    Senor Tuff…shoot! For some reason I read J4A and not JFK 😀 my bad lol (don’t tell J4A that)

    GT…Pardew needs to grow that famous Tom Selleck mustache (the famous caterpillar) that would restore some manlyness and maybe even wooly up that hair-doo!

    Other than that I would just tell him to look at TV’s greatest ever personality “Ron Swanson” 😉

    We need to start against West Ham exactly the same way we finished against city, except Krull stays in his own box. The only objective should be making WHU suffer for our defeat, by taking 3 points off them, with a dominant display of controlled aggression against them.

    Aha I found the new offering. And a cheesy, delicious one it is. Yes I would agree jesper mate. A Tom Selleck moustache, black and white Mohawk, stompin boots, black leather jacket, and white sleeveless T and he’s sorted mate.

    Of course Alan will need to where his Manly Man armpit hair supplements with the sleeveless T. He’s just too bland for the Geordie Nation as he is now. Poor effort Alan.

    A lot of you have posted back to say your interest in the Captain and Toenail has increased by leaps and bounds based on our recent discussions. You’re welcome. I’m not just a manly man. Manliness doesn’t completely define me. My music is also very important. Ask Markaccus. Jesper bakes, the Stud Muffin pursues the ladies and I groove to the tunes baby. Yeahhhh!

    I challenge any of you chaps to a gun duel at dawn if you are prepared to criticise Mr Pardew.

    I have no doubt you rotters will be quiet if he pulls of a victory at West Ham.

    He’s doing a tremendous job with a limited squad. He can’t do anything more than is expected.

    8th place and keeping the squad happy in general is spiffing going in my book.

    The Ron Swanson moustache is good but I believe he’s only part way to true manliness. He needs a much more gruff voice (Manly Man lozenges). Where is his manly outrage? He’s too calm. I’m highly suspicious jesper. Let’s check back on him in a few months. Now as for footy, who have we brought in? Or should I say what the f*** has Joe been doing? Now there’s some real anger mates. I’m just fuming here.

    Shearer @10 I’m also concerned about your overuse of the word spiffing mate. It’s just not on. We’re manly on here so we don’t say spiffing. As for a gun duel at dawn I’m never up by dawn so that’s off as well. Just clean up your act, order some Manly Man products and we’ll let it go at that.

    @Mr Geordie Two

    My goodness grief. You are a real feisty character. A real spunk ball.

    As I’ve said before, spunk is good. It’s gusto and bottle.

    You could fill a bottle with your spunk you are showing.

    I like you.

    Well er thank you (I think) Mr Shearer @14. That sounds a little worrisome in some ways. I do generally have a lot of spunk but it’s not meant to be put in bottles.

    Actually no Markaccus. That’s no way to use Mr. Winkie. The Manly Man’s Club has very specific directives on that mate.

    I’m just listening to Mozart and Chopin whilst reading out loud verses from Keats poetry all whilst standing on top of the hill on the Town Moor.

    It’s at this point I notice I’ve got one foot ankle deep in a cow pat.

    Life is strange at times.

    But, it makes me reflect on how good a job Mr Pardew is doing bearing in mind he is likely to be one of the lowest paid managers in the league.

    Of course we would like Mr Morinho or the like but they are paid 10 fold what Mr Pardew earns.

    That rotter Mr Ashley would never pay such wages. Why would he? Mr Pardew has us exactly where he wants us.

    I suspect Mr Ashley Loves Mr Pardew.

    I see you’re trying to change the topic away from your very poor treatment of your budgies Markaccus. Well it won’t work. It’s all well and good for them to have glossy feathers but a healthy beak is crucial. You’ll be hearing more about this.

    I cant help it. There is a shortage of beak-wax since the great potato wasp crisis of 2011. Ae you know, beak-wax is extracted from the nostrils of potato wasps. Their numbers have not recoverd to farm it efficiently.

    Disgraceful practises being discussed -there is -for the ill informed reports through the centuries of this type of “unusual behaviour”. One such account is as follows:-
    In the 2001 book Sexual Relations of Mankind, Mantegazza claimed that: “the Chinese are famous for their love affairs with geese. Just when they are at the point of ejaculation they wring off the birds’ necks in order that they may get the pleasure of the last spasms of the anal sphincters of the dying geese”.

    Mmmm. Well lets not dismiss this practice straight away with geese -there are some crowing cockerels on here who could do with a similar experience.

    That’s all worrisome stuff Mr. Tuff mate. In fact quite disturbing. I had no idea of the real reason for their love of large birds. And Markaccus please! Everyone knows the Bolivians came up with a perfectly reasonable substitute from the South American earwig years ago.

    Its just not as good. Half my budgies are allergic to it. 3 of them died of green-feather as a direct result of using it.

    Markaccus are you applying the wax to the inside of the beaks again? That will definitely do it. Just a light coat on the outside followed by extensive buffing. Please get it right for the sack of your budgies. And now for something completely different. What is going on with our strikers? Remy looks to be fading fast, Cisse is itchy and I’m not sure what Shola is doing but it doesn’t involve scoring. Any solutions out there?

    Strong words indeed Markaccus. Well then, harrumph. A manly man tries to help a fellow manly man with his budgies and look what happens. This won’t deter me though. My mission in life is clear. I stride forward with a manly determined look on my face.

    I’m also very serious about this whole striker problem. We’re in a striker funk. It’s very difficult with the Pardew system of score and sit back to score more than once. In fact we rarely even do that lately. Come on lads, let’s hear all your offensive ideas.

    Markaccus – I advocate nothing -my interest is from a legal perspective with some knowledge of these types of practices – collectively called bestiality. My purpose was to inform the debate -but the had a momentary thought about the crowing cockerels.
    Perhaps I should not have mentioned the crowing cockerels -as it seems to have struck a chord and ruffled a few feathers -oops probably shouldn’t have use that expression.
