Pardew – Over The Top Criticism Has Fueled Anger At Newcastle


Alan Pardew after the game admitted the obvious – that it was a very difficult atmosphere and surroundings for the Newcastle players to play in – but with a bit of luck in that second half they managed to come away with a terrific 3-0 win – but the scoreline doesn’t show just how difficult it was for Newcastle in that second half.

One of the few times Alan Pardew was on the sidelines today

A very good headed goal from Shola Ameobi on 18 minutes, after a wonderful pin-point cross from the very impressive Moussa Sissoko on the right wing, should have calmed the nerves a but – but it didn’t.

And Moussa then hit the post twice in the following five minutes, and if those shots had gone in it may have been a different story in the second half – but we really struggled as Cardiff came more and more into the game..

There was so much abuse being thrown at Alan Pardew that he decided rather wisely that it was better he remain seated and assistant manager John Carver was sent out to give the players instructions.

And there wasn’t the massive walkout that some fan organizations were hoping for – and had asked for – but it was maybe a few hundred fans that left after 69 minutes – if that – of over 50,000 who were at the game.

If they expected thousands to walk out they would have been very disappointed.

And the fans who left missed two Newcastle goals – which have been very rare this year – one from Loic Remy after 87 minutes – his 14th PL goal of the season – and then Steven Taylor went crazy after he scored his 14th goal for the club (in 10 years) in the first minute of stoppage time, to put a respectable scoreline on the game, but it was a flattering one for Newcastle.

This is what Alan Pardew said after the game:

“Our fans are frustrated and upset and made it a difficult atmosphere.” “Coming to the sideline I was antagonizing them so I took a seat.”“We need to start next season strong.”

“You have to be resilient.” “Some of the criticism has been from left field and over the top, and that has fueled the anger here.”

It’s hard to remember when so much abuse was hurled at a Newcastle manager at St. James’ Park – but it’s happened in the past  – but Pardew has taken a lot of it in his almost 42 months on Tyneside as the Newcastle manager.

Now we have to wait until after our last game at Liverpool next Sunday, to see if there are any changes made in the management at the club – but if we were to hazard a guess, we think Alan may even stay on as the manager.

But Mike Ashley has to fork out a huge war chest in the summer to rebuild the side, which has looked far too threadbare and weak this year.

The performances and results are testament to that. 🙁

    If he thinks the reaction has been over the top then that shows just how out of touch the man is, I’m only amazed the reaction has been bigger and come much sooner as all Ashley and co have done is take us for mugs

    Did Pardew really say that the walkout hurt the team? They scored two after the walkout and what about the fans that f’ing stayed? Bet they feel like right mugs with comments like that.

    Pardew has done well enough considering the backing he has been given. We are desperately short of quality and last I checked we are still top 10. Some here need to give him a break…

    Abuse for Pardew and Ashley was all game at very regular intervals. It tended to be pro Newcastle United then Anti Pardew and Ashley, to show support for the club is always there but we aren’t standing for mediocrity and their lies.

    Loads of Ben Arfa chants throughout the game “Ben Arfa’s right, Pardew’s sh….”

    Once all the banners came out on about 50minutes that really made it lively and it got loud. Back to what the atmosphere used to be like before these cretins arrived. Stewards just couldn’t get them as there was a few out at the same time. Lots and lots of cheers and claps when they came out too. Really kicked off the protests, mixed in with some “All we care about is NUFC” songs.

    I wasn’t going to go at all, but as the the ticket is already paid for I thought that at least I could add to the protest in the ground rather than just one empty quiet seat, especially with the walk-out happening. My vocal discontent would help spur on other quieter fans to come out of their shells a bit. That certainly did happen once the banners were out.

    The game was another abysmal showing of professional football. The misuse of players is criminal. Cardiff were awful and looked like us on Monday night. No urgency whatsoever. You would never have thought they had a chance to be relegated if they didn’t win. Pardew has again been lucky that he had the worst team in the league to play to save him from breaking the most losses in a row. Yet, he still has the awful honour of sharing it.

    Most fans just waited for the 69th minute and I don’t know who is saying 500??? No chance at all. There were thousands of fans streaming out with and after me and I stuck about for a bit outside the Strawberry to do more for the protest with the group that was ever growing there.

    More and more were coming out and that was just in our corner. I must have waited another almost ten minutes and there were still more coming out. Constantly. It was thousands. I may put up some pics.

    Pardew was getting booed everytime he stood up and jeered when he sat down. He’s usually up a lot more than that. That abuse was grinding away at him. No doubt. He looked tentative and nervous.

    His post-match comments are more pathetic and delusional words from a parasite of a man.

    Ashley out, Pardew OUT.

    no it won’t be a huge war chest it will be an empty one.
    instead he will make this great team all remain and sack pardew.

    pardew was doing quite well until january then things collapse so ashley knows he has to spend money.

    wait a minute everyone seems to be saying this is still a great team and the manager is at fault for this form so he can sack pardew get a new manager in and go through another summer transfer window without money spent.

    i myself keep saying we should keep pardew and spend money first then after the first 10 games next season we review what he is like knowing ashley will not accept money wasted. but no fans want him gone now, which is telling ashley this team is good enough as it is and we don’t need to spend money this summer just sack pardew.

    can’t you see, this is why we will not see good managers come here because like you are saying their about JFK being good for pardew.
    well the managers he appoints will be ones who fans will abuse so that ashley can laugh his head off in the office with all his lovely money and anti manager crew.

    Pardew is shit. It would be difficult for anyone to be as bad as him. However, there’s little to suggest Laudrup would do much better. Or am I missing something?

    just look at the past

    first he appoints kevin keegan but what happens fans turn to ashley hurling abuse at him and keegan walks out.

    he appoints JFK and i think fans still were hurling it at ashley so he tried to use shearer but that didn’t stop fans anger and shearer walked.

    then hughton was appointed but we still were getting at ashley and not chris. ashley then chose to sack hughton and bring in pardew. ever since that appointment ashley has been getting less and less of the blame instead pardew has had most of it so basically ashley is getting just what he wants.

    it’s quite simple he is treating his employees of NUFC like he treats those working at sports direct. the thing about NUFC is fans are not helping either as we are hurling abuse at them too and just giving ashley his money.

    I for one will get behind Pardew and give him a chance to show what he can do with a few good transfers through the door. He did well when we finished fifth, You have to remember that hes had half a season with no creative midfielder. It’s not up to Pardew who spends the money it’s Fat Mike. Anyone in Pardew position would find it difficult, giving an interview and trying to stay positive. Sometimes managers ger their tacitic wrong, but Pardew is trying to work with a team that keeps seeing it’s best players sold and not replaced by Fat Mike. I bet you anything that Ben Arfa has a huge pathetic ego on him as well, so i don’t think Pardew is to blame for that.

    So well done for aiming your pathetic walk out at the wrong person. It’s sad really what the fans are manipulated by, aim your sh!t at Fat Boy not the man trying to do something about it!

    Pardew headbutt was stupid but we all have moments of weekness! Get a grip and get behind the team!

    Its not over the top alan, lets face it anywhere else you’d be sacked a while ago. Your not good enough you’ve had a chance now beat it. If the lack of spending is your excuse then speak up(sorry I forgot mike won’t let you). Window after window you’ve spouted shite before saying the squads good and strong. Your a muppet and a puppet now tiddle off back to the big smoke and run as an mp because there full of shit too.

    Spot on manxpie.

    This is what fans don’t understand, the source is Ashley! Stop the rot at the source!

    Pardew could be a great manager with the right backing, but until then he has to work harder than most for results.

    Very sad the way some fans think, it’s strange how most of the players are behind Pardew as well, would think he knew what he was doing! Think on that kids.

    Magpie miles

    Which best players keep getting sold and not replaced?

    We sold Carroll and improved the team with cisse and ba who did more to get us to fifth than pardew ever did.

    We sold ba (who wanted away) and replaced him with remy (who’s better). We kept cabaye half a season longer than expected (because he wanted away and even went on strike).

    When cabaye went we got de jong, pardews long term targey and a signing pardew sanctioned. Give the club a chance to replace cabaye and not make rsdh purchases like the makems whose future tv monies were burning a hole in their pockets. Act in haste, repent at leisure.

    “Pardew could be a great manager with the right backing, but until then he has to work harder than most for results.”
    ———————————————————————-

    So two good seasons in a sixteen year career show’s he could be a great manager does it? Or is it the fact that he motivates and improves the players that he currently has? Or was it that mighty Johnston Paint Trophy win?

    He’s an average, at best, manager who is lucky to be working for a clueless owner as the only reason he’s kept his job here is because he’s as toxic for the club as Ashley is

    Myles, he had those transfers at Charlton and West Ham. What happened there? Oh yeah, more demonstrations.

    The demonstrations were at Pinocchio and Ashley today anyway Not just at Slimer.

    I’m sure Alan will deliver the great football that your backing merits. Make sure you’re playing on the correct length grass though and not in Europe, or cups or have more than one injury at a time, or too hyped, science etc etc etc. Were you at the games of late? Scintillating ‘ey?

    One top 6 place in 20 years of management or whatever it is. Nice one, Alan, you’re a real winner.
