Three In Four Fans Don’t Want Pardew Fired

12:37 pm, Tuesday, March 4th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

Since we put out the article yesterday in our poll on whether Alan Pardew should be fired for his antics on Saturday, his support has risen.

Alan Pardew – three in four don’t want him fired

With over 3100 votes in, Alan has 76% of the vote – up from 72% when we had around 1800 votes in.

This is potentially good news for the Newcastle manager, but he somehow has to make up through the rest of the season, for embarrassing both himself and Newcastle United on Saturday.

There’s still an opportunity to vote, if you haven’t already done so.

Should Alan Pardew Be Fired For His Behavior At Hull?

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

Total Voters: 4,147

    Jail -afternoon – never heard about Dastardly doing a streak across the pitch -when was that?

    He shouldn’t be sacked for the “headbutt” incident.

    He should be sacked for being a useless incompetent £~@*

    He was a bit silly at hull, but I think every media pundit should be given a media ban for their over reaction.

    The FA will no doubt cover themselves in glory at the end of the week too.

    The Leicester manager got a touch line ban last year & has never gone back. He says he can see more from the stands & Leicester are romping away with the Championship.

    Blessing in disguise?

    3 years ago , like a lot of fans, I thought alan pardew becoming manager of NUFC was a bad call. 3 years on , nothing has changed . I always thought that he was arrogant , ful of self importance ,and could be a bit fiery . We got rid of a decent fella to make way for him . He says he didn’t step on anyone’s toes to get this job, but later revealed meetings took place for months about getting the job , knowing we already had a manager who was doing ok . Pardew was never qualified to manage us ,he still isn’t , put that all together with his hot headed actions for minimum provocation , we have a man who is on the brink of being labelled one of the most hated men in English football , who also happens to be the manager of NUFC.

    I am loving all this exposure he is now getting because he deserves it . If one man deserves all the crap that is coming his way , it’s him.

    People can only go on for so long pretending to be a ‘nice bloke’ as people not related to NUFC say to me all the time , they are now shocked at his actions and can’t believe this ‘nice bloke’ could do something like that. I really hope he gets the book thrown at him . He may decide to pack it in coz of the crap he’s going to get from now on or Ashley May sack him . One thing is for sure , his job will never be the same now . He really has been found out now.

    Jail – the supporters letter is to Humberside Police asking them why they did not investigate/charge Percy for his violence. The supporter had been “done” three years ago for a pitch invasion at Hull and it was suggested at his court appearance that there was violence.

  • 7 beermonkey // Mar 4, 2014 at 1:16 PM

    a general question to do with the bloke who invaded the pitch well sort of.

    are there not rules about members of the public entering the field of play I half remember something after a female tennis players was stabbed was it hingis?
    I vaguely remember them saying they were goin to look at all sports where the public could get at the players after that

    I could and prob am wrong in that I am sure some1 will know

    I still think pardew should be sacked, the FA will throw the book at pardew and rightly so but the FA should also grow a pair of balls and fine and ban the hull city player because the media have forgot that this player put his hands on pardew pushed him out the way when he could have easily went around pardew but no so if pardew is hammered by a fine and ban then the player should get it as well

  • 9 Shadow_Shearer // Mar 4, 2014 at 3:02 PM

    Pardew can consider himself very lucky it was in a game of our highest performance. Had we lost 4-1, 3 out 4 would have voted the other way

    Shadow_Shearer

    more then likely

    @beermonkey

    It was Monica Seles who was stabbed in the back during a match.
