Alan Pardew is getting severe criticism from Newcastle fans, after the terrible form and hopeless run of results we’ve been on – and Pardew knows the results are simply not good enough for Newcastle United.
Alan Pardew – gutted
But nothing like the Newcastle fans are gutted and fed up
Alan Pardew has now served his seven game ban for that headbutt on David Meyler, and in those games we got just 3 points – one single win against Crystal Palace – and we lost the other six and scored just two goals in those seven games.
This is what Alan Pardew has said about the Swansea 2-1 defeat in the Chronicle:
“It is hard to believe really, when we beat Palace in March that we would end up like this.” “I’m absolutely gutted with events after the last-minute goal.”
“I didn’t think we deserved it. Unfortunately we are going to have to wear it.”
What Alan Pardew fails to point out is that we scored the winning goal over three minutes into added time against Crystal Palace to rather luckily win that game – so Alan is again demonstrating his selective memory.
Yes – we were beaten by a stoppage time goal against Swansea last Saturday – but hey – you win some and you lose some.
The problem with Newcastle this year is we keep losing some – in fact we keep losing most of our games.
And we’ve lost 13 of the last 18 games in all competitions, and to say that is pathetic is probably a huge understatement.
There’s tremendous pressure on Pardew to get some results in the last three games of the season – and heaven forbid if we lose all three – against Arsenal, Cardiff and Liverpool – Mike Ashley could well call time on Pardew being the manager at Newcastle.
We just hope he doesn’t then bring in Joe Kinnear.
I’m just kidding!!
