Newcastle’s Detailed Plans And Preparation For Alan Pardew

8:45 am, Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 5 Comments

There’s a saying that you prepare for the worst and hope for the best, and that’s what Newcastle seem to have done in preparation for Alan Pardew’s punishment from the FA, related to his improper conduct charge against David Meyler, and the club have plans in place in case Alan Pardew gets a stadium ban, which means he will not be allowed at the games.

Alan Pardew will relay information to John Carver

The Journal is reporting today that Newcastle will plan to have video analysts in a hotel room for manager Alan Pardew, as part of a detailed contingency plan in case the manager gets a stadium ban over the next several games – however many that turns out to be.

As we reported last night, Pardew will have his personal hearing at Wembley this afternoon with the three-man FA commission, and will learn of his fate shortly after the meeting.

And you can bet your life that whatever the punishment for Pardew turns out to be , it will be the headline news this afternoon and tomorrow too.

Newcastle officials have met with a group of video analysts this past week, and they have worked out how to get relevant information across to Pardew, who can then make any relevant changes and convey those to John Carver and Steve Stone in the dugout.

The club will book a hotel suite at each game, and the information Pardew will receive from the analysts – in real-time – is usually the stuff Alan and his coaches review after every game.

And depending on whether Pardew gets a stadium ban or touchline ban will decide who will give tomorrow’s press conference, with John Carver ready to take over the media duties in case Alan gets a stadium ban.

It appears that Newcastle have done some significant planning and preparation in case Pardew receives the dreaded stadium ban.

If the manager only receives a touchline ban he will relay information and instructions from the stands to John Carver and the coaches.

Comments welcome.

    The club can easily hire video analysts and book hotel suites , yet struggle to get players “over the line”

    why doesn’t MA just sack Pardew and use the transfer kitty to pay his compensation, it’s not as if he’s going to use it to improve the team

    Ciaran, re your post 3 in the blog before last. Instead of being critical of what Ed writes, if you’re not happy with it, why not look at other blog sites….. or even start one of your own.

    Oh, you have already? How’s it doing? Successful, getting zillions of hits is it?

    People in glass houses etc comes to mind.

    Try to show a little courtesy and perhaps your comments’ll be seen as grown up and posted by a responsible adult!

    If Pards is sacked for gross negligence / failing to fulfill his managerial duties etc there will be no compensation

    Doesn’t really make any odds tho as Fatty will not sack him

    Bloodybright he won’t. Because he knows he’ll never get another manager to take all that shit and still keep us in the prem.

    Exactly which greener grass do the Pards Out Brigade have in mind?

    Clpud cuckoo land.
