Should Pardew Be Fired – Surprising Poll Results


With all the negative comments being written about Alan Pardew’s behavior at Hull City on Saturday, when he showed both himself and Newcastle United Football Club up, we decided to take the pulse of Newcastle fans, and ask if he should be fired as Newcastle manager.

Alan Pardew – fans don’t want him fired

And with over 1600 votes in so far,  72% think he should keep his job – so more than two in three Newcastle fans think the manager should retain his position as manager of Newcastle

We’d like to get as votes in as possible – one vote per reader – so if you haven’t already voted – here’s your chance.

Should Alan Pardew Be Fired For His Behavior At Hull?

  • No (76%, 3,167 Votes)
  • Yes (24%, 980 Votes)

Total Voters: 4,147

Loading ... Loading ...

Even though the majority of fans don’t want him to be fired, they are still furious at what Alan did, because he shamed the good name of Newcastle United around the world, and we are now waiting for the verdict on him from the English FA, who have said they will take immediate action.

It’s now up to Pardew to ensure in the last 10 games of the season Newcastle do very well, and if he is banned then make sure there is a good workable plan in place to get his messages out to the players, whether or not he’s allowed in the stadium at Newcastle’s games.

It’s the very least Pardew can do after what happened on Saturday.

Comments welcome.

    Why can’t you vote on the mobile site??

    The results aren’t a surprise at all, fans aren’t idiots buying into the overblown media hype of the situation…

    i think everyone has to look at the bigger picture really. ok pards gets 10 games , lookm on the bright side – now we may have a chance of getting into europe. teah pardew will still run the team but not having him there on pitchside writing down whatever it is he writes down all the time , and with a change of staff in the dugout we could win a lot more games

    I personally don’t go along with sacking but I don’t think those who do are being over the top…the manager should control himself and it’s not his first time he’s done something stupid.

    I think the club giving him an official warning, fine and letting him do anger management is a good way, gives him a final chance and also the ability to improve his behaviour/mentality.

    @ Tads

    Most people want him gone for footballing reasons (me included) and head-butting an opposition player is the final straw .

    In all my time watching the Premier League I have never seen a manager do that and this is just another negative to add to his long list of negatives at NUFC .

    If you think finishing 5th once justifies Pardews behaviour here and all of the abysmal records he has broken then you are delusional .

    Pardew has a right to be a prick in the tech area, Mylor’s throwing AP off to one side should have been the red card, had AP done a dive.
    Makes me wonder why AP did not get on better with Joey Barton, they go at the world in the same way it seems.
    If AP is banned from the club for some period of time, why not let John Carver fill the role, but bring in “guest coaches” each week? NUFC could start with Sir Alex Ferguson, and go on from there.

    CPS will not prosecute Pardew as the incident did not involve a member of the public or cause a problem with public order. The Professional game of football is governed by the FA and it is for them to decide the punishment in relation to which of their own rules has been broken.

    People will remember the Norbert Meier incident which is very similar. The difference is the two involved rolled around to make a big show of it. He ended up getting the sack but the team were not in a good position in the league either so it was a good opportunity to get rid and not have to pay out. Pardew shouldn’t be sacked, but what an idiot!

    Not 100% true, The police investigated the incident between terry and anton ferdinand, if it’s reported they could investigate.

    I don’t think there’d be enough for an assault conviction, very minimal contact and provoked too….there may be some minor public order offence though.

    But again, this sort of things happens all the time with players and the police are never called in or asked to be.

    Pardew was a moron though.

    What PArdew did is very wrong but people should get a grip.
    If Pardew gets a 10 match ban then the FA are saying a Headbutt is worse than racism and every player guilty of headbutting next year should also get the same treatment.
    What did Saurez get for a second biting offence, now ask which is worse?

    sack him for football reasons yes
    this no

    plenty of stuff goes on in the tunnel between managers the refs and players its just never caught on camera
    most goes un-punished
    pards deserves his ban and his fine and should be made to take anger management classes

    lets put this to bed asap and get on with football

    Not only did de Jong have a fantastic game and deserved a goal, but the whole team played really well as a cohesive unit. All thoughts of Cabaye hopefully banished from their conjoined mindset (urgh!) The position he played certainly highlighted the need for a strong and technical player to control the ball in the attacking half. It allowed supporting players to utilise space in forward positions and working off the ball with Remy to apply pressure gave the team the opportunity to establish their defensive formation.

    I think Pardew is a lucky boy this happened in a game we won at a canter, if it had been a home derby defeat he may have walked for it.

    But this moment of madness has taken away from what was a great game plan over the game and the players did brilliantly and looked very good as well.

    Hopefully we can kick on and keep pushing, beating two teams in villa/hull is great as they are desperate for points and we could be on the beach really…..good return to form.

    “If you think finishing 5th once justifies Pardews behaviour here and all of the abysmal records he has broken then you are delusional .”

    By all means show me where i have said that, or even justified his actions for that matter

    He will be rightfully punished

    As for sacked for footballing reasons, what footballing reasons would MA use to sack him exactly?
    He’s on course for the seasons target without any permanent signings and losing the clubs star player

    Sage
    The reactions completely over the top, it happens week in week between players in every league in every country
    By all means ban him, no one can argue that, but the media coverage is an absolute joke as is the fan reaction
    We’re these same fans calling for Cabaye’s head when he shoved over that ball boy? No, why? Was an equally aggressive action caried out on a minor

    Rake from previous
    Thought LDJ was brilliant mate
    Said before the game i hope he partners Remy as they clicked immediately and look a great partnership
    Tiote absolutely bossed midfield and have Anita more of a free role in which he looked extremely impressive
    The whole team were fantastic so it’s hard to single out a best player, the lads were brilliant
    Hopefully we can carry this performance on now and have a march for Europe

    De Jong would have scored yesterday if Sissoko’s pace didn’t get him to the ball first .

    Nice to see a striker following shots in at the keeper and something I haven’t seen Cisse do very often .

    I did try to find any previous incident where there had been a criminal charge relating to assault and could not find one, which led me to my conclusion.

    Despite any perceived excuse, even Pardew knows he deserves all the expletives and the sooner the punishment is announced and served the better for all concerned…….except!!

    getting bored of this now !!!

    there was no headbutt he squared up to him ! the player as said made a lot more contact on pards than pards did on the player yet he’s scott free because ofc its pards also with relation to the anger factor who looked the more likely to cause damage pards of the player ? the player had to be held back by two people and pards was not if i remember correctly.

    I do think it’s different when a manager, so can understand the thought behind sacking him, especially given the previous.

    But like you say, if we were top of the league I dare bet not as many would take the moral high ground.

    I think the police can be involved but they never do in sport, as the victim never wants to press charges a lot of the time (the case being the ferdinand terry situation where race was involved).

    Most players just dont care….in rugby players are stamped on, punched (properly as well, not like a prem league punch) and eye gauged quite often and it goes no further than disciplinary action by the sport.

    You are right in that it never goes to court, it could, but nobody is remotely bothered.

    I do not condone Pardew’s behavior. He made a bad decision yes but Myler is a neanderthal thug. A thug that used to play for Sunderland. Which most tv pundit failed to pick up on esp Shearer. Class player, shit pundit. This is not the 1st time that Irish thug tried this. Makes my blood boils watching this vid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyFSZhT17z8

    And that’s where the club fall down…poor communication with fans and media leads to more speculation (the thing they try to avoid) and anger.

    I think because it is seen as being within the confines of the sporting arena and subject to the legislation of a governing body, which then answers to Parliament. Police action is generally only required where there is a complaint or public disorder. Anyway, it is disillusioned people that are calling for extreme sanctions and I include pundits.

    Pardew have proven himself that he deserve to stay.

    Remember last season those French and Neth players at the club was just so new. Now they have each a season in them playing football at this level at our club. (In short adapted)

    And Alan Pardew have not done too badly. And even after Cabs his Captain is gone.

    Some are fair enough to give him a chance due to last season and Christmas have past we are not at the bottom or anywhere near that area.

    He SHOULD continue to work with Mike A.

    Like the Special One Pardew does have something in common…

    Also if a player doesn’t want to press charges then there is little to do (for such minor incidents), usually it’s six of one half a dozen of the other as well.

    @20 try doing that to a policeman and see if they class it as a headbutt or let you off..That was his intention.It isnt the first time he’s been in trouble on the touch line.

    He wont get sacked or walk so were stuck with him.A big fine from FA and a long touchline ban.The guy has no class whatsoever.As you can tell I dislike the guy,but sack him for football reasons, if he ever gets sacked.
    It boils me to see all this about him even on MOD that’s all they talked about,hardly a mention of how well the team did.That’s the reason it boils me we get front page Again instead of back page and how well the team played.Every single player did well on Saturday.

    Big Papa @ 5: “Most people want him gone for footballing reasons”. Do you mean “Most people who do want him gone do so for footballing reasons”? If so, fair enough. If you’re suggesting that most people just want him gone, sorry but that’s completely against all the polls and research. Most recognise that given all the shite from upon high, we’re very lucky to have someone mad enough to keep at it and delivering results.

    The police themselves sometimes press charges, but usually only in cases of more serious assaults. This was a minor incident in comparison. If you do it to a copper, your bound to be in hot water. It is always worse when you attack those who are meant to be keeping the peace.
