Pardew’s Ban Almost Certain To Cost Newcastle Points


Given that each place in the Premier League is worth about £2M in payouts this year, with the lost club getting around £60M and the top club getting around £100M, you have to think that Alan Pardew’s seven match ban will cost Newcastle some points through the last 10 games of the season.

Alan Pardew – his absence will cost Newcastle some points

And those points will cost Newcastle some money in terms of where the team ends up after the last game of the season on Sunday 11th May when we are at Liverpool – well there’s an easy 3 points. 🙁

Alan Pardew has said this on the Newcastle United web-site following the FA verdict, and there’s no doubt he’s let the club down big time:

“As I have made clear, I deeply regret the incident and again wholeheartedly apologize to all parties for my conduct, which I understand was not acceptable.”

“I will accept the punishment handed down by the FA today. My focus now turns to preparing the team for this weekend’s game against Fulham and finishing the season as strongly as possible.”

It’s going to be really difficult to have much input from Alan in the next three games, which are a stadium ban – and those games are at Fulham, at home to both Crystal Palace and Everton, and John Carver will be in charge of the side.

Then in the next four games – at Southampton, at home to Manchester United, away to Stoke and at home to Swansea – Alan be in the stands and can presumably more easily phone in advice and calls to the coaching staff in the dugout.

It’s now up to the players and coaches John Carver and Steve Stone to come through big time for the club in these next seven games – and we should make that ten games through the end of the season.

But this has been another self-inflicted wound and follows the selling of Yohan Cabaye in January and not replacing him, although in that particular case that was the owner’s fault and not the manager’s.

It would be much better if the owner and manager were helping the club, rather than hindering it.

It’s not good.

Comments welcome.

    with all due respect we have got to take context into consideration, if your walking down the street and someone comes at you feet down but they take your legs away with the impact but the soles of their feet could not hurt you, you would get them done for assault, however on a football field it would be classed as a perfect tackle.

    So why bring magistrates into it, it’s the same with Rugby, I love watching the 6 nations, but so many times I here about the respect and the lack of back chatting to the refs, which is true, but howay, how many times do we see a punch-up on the Rugby pitch, regularly, very rarely do you get that in football, it’s all about perspective, so lets put the magistrates comment to one side as it is in-appropriate

    What about Meyler who started all this & was guilty of trying to punch Pardew as well as pushing another teams manager out of the way in his teams tech area.

    Oh yes, that’s right…..he gets booked by the ref & is allowed to carry on.

    Pardew should have more self control than he showed last Saturday & deserves to be punished. Did he head butt Meyler, of course not but his head did make contact (just) but for Meyler to escape scot free !!!!…… Not to mention assaulting a corner flag during the Sunderland game. !!

    It does really seem that there is some sort of “vendetta” against Newcastle these days or is it something to do with Mike Ashley ?

    Not sure how pard’s ban will cost the team points – he’ll set them up and have his tactics by Friday and given he rarely changes them mid game we shouldn’t see much of a difference

    Yo-Yo was referring to catchys outrageous posts such as Fat Sam sets up his teams better and wishing we would lose and be relegated, having a pop at his inability to spell carnt despite it being pointed out a hundred times was just a side note to the main point of his post.

    Hang on, how will it cost us points, he will still train and pick the team, even with a stadium ban he will see the game, we all watch streams, he will still decide what happens, it makes no difference at all, we cannot use this as an excuse for a poor run-in !

    Well the proof will certainly be in the pudding now, if as a few on here suggest the team will play better without Pardew restricting them, then the next three games will go a little way to either proving or dispelling that opinion, if we win the next seven games then only a fool would keep him on, however if we lose the next seven games, then only a fool would keep him on.

    dcdick, right on! I’m angry that the man who was assaulted has been punished. Maybe Mylor should have got more, and that could have come from 4th official Howard Webb. But Webb seems to be on another planet most times, so there you go.
    If the players like AP, it would be nice if they ran over Webb a few times from behind when on the pitch. And in the old days, one would have expected Mylor to get a knock somewhere down the line.
    If pardew is smart, he interprets the 7 matchs as concurrent, so we only lose him for 4 games.

    The context is that this is a football ground where the fa have cracked down zealously on fans misbehaviour. That sort of behaviour is simply not tolerated.

    The fa were the right body to deal with his push on the lino but they should have taken firmer action. If it had happened in non league, he’d have been banned for a long time. He might well have been serving a ban and we wouldnt be talking about his headbutt

    Very, very good point at the end there Jail mate @8 :). And we have such a fool. His name is Mike SmallBerries. His thoughts are so far above us we can only imagine it. Smiling, fondling his berries, deciding how much money not to spend in the summer. Beautiful.

    Dear Ed,

    Only time will tell about losing points, but it’s not a certainty. The players have to achieve some consistency. At present they either win a lot or lose a lot.

    I’m a fan of Alan Pardew, but I feel the ban is about right. What he did was not acceptable, full stop. Meyler’s behaviour was wrong, but a side issue.

    It would appear that Ashley did the right thing for once by fining Alan heftily and immediately. It would also suggest that his job is safe.

    Like everyone else I expect him to back Alan in the summer, but will not hold my breath waiting.

    Regards,

    Neil

    my father in law is a Mackem, so many times have I wanted to punch the tw*t, but so far I have resisted, no doubt he feels the same about me, when ever we argue it does get heated, but never, even when I have him on his knees do I ever make a personnel remark about intelligence or otherwise, there is no need for it, it can’t be allowed to happen, as for Catchy’s desire to see us relegated, I happen to agree with him, if you would like to here my reasons why then please say so, outlandish wishes as I have I do have my reasons ?

    Blackley,
    He should have been strangled until nearly dead and then placed in a gibbet cage and displayed on the banks of the Tyne, however if this punishment had of been handed out then you would have wanted more something more severe.

    Spoof,
    I don’t know why anyone would want to see us relegated, Mashley wouldn’t sell up anyway and we’d still be stuck with him, as for having a pop at someone for having a go at another poster, where do you draw the line, you’d spend your entire evening telling people off.

    Does having SmallBerries make a fellow less of a manly man? Possibly. Then there is the question of the dominatrix. Is she really enjoying herself? Is she a Geordie? If not Mike should hire one to get complete satisfaction. Harrumph.

    Mark Yates done exactly the same as Pardew and got a four game ban with a £350 fine when in charge of Kidderminster, so how can you seduce that non league managers get off lightly when Pardew has been more severley dealt with, I am not excusing Pardew as he was clearly in the wrong, but punishments should be alike for all ?

    Ed, don’t understand your logic as many fans think Pardew is useless and therefore if he isn’t going to be involved in the forthcoming games how will points be dropped?

    Surely, points will be gained because he wont be involved?

    Could Mike arrange to have OwlHeed ride Pards across the pitch while laying into him with a riding crop as further punishment? If Mike could ride Joe and make it a race then we should have full television coverage.

    that is what I am on about, its a football blog, lets talk about football, you may be far more intelligent than what I am, good for you, however it may be the other way round, so what, who cares, using intelligence levels or spelling ability in an attempt to dismiss or diminish another’s post is wrong, the thickest twat in the world could make a very valid point, whereas a brain surgeon could be so far off the mark.

    I just try to ignore grammer and spelling and concentrate on the message which they are trying to make and respond to their point ?, surely that has got to be the right way to go about it ?

    Geordie Two,
    Don’t worry the five/seven/eight year plan is about to be restructured to decide what they will do in the summer, then we can announce a new plan and everyone will say, the next window with a new DoF will show the extent of Mashleys ambition.

    As for calling for Llamearse back, you have GOT to be kidding. His only qualification for the job was “not as shite as JFK”!

    Nope, we’ll get a proper director in the summer. I dunno – a Kray twin or someone like that.

    I love it when we come to a window and Pards says “we’re doing really well. We’re a mid table team, right where we want to be. Mike is going to support me completely this summer. The helicopter is ready, the agents have all been notified that we don’t like paying their fees and the players we want all know we like low wages. It’s looking good.”

    with the ban it will be assumed that we could be up against it, rather than suffer from the ban I feel that it will give what would be an end of season run-in a bit more purpose, they now have something to play for, prove the ba$tardS wrong, lets just win win win and make them look daft, it could turn out to be a blessing, give them a focus !
