Alan Pardew Seems Closer To Being Sacked


Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that after the humiliation last Saturday at Southampton, when we taken to the cleaners 4-0 for the second time running on the south coast, the Newcastle manager had a long conversation with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley on the day after the game.

Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley

This is what Alan Pardew has said today during his news conference for the upcoming Hull City game, about what has happened since the Saints game:

“It has not been an easy week,” “I’ve spoken to the group about it and if we go behind in games we have to show a better spirit.¨

“I had a long conversation with Mike Ashley on Sunday. We both agreed to focus on this Saturday and try to get a win for Newcastle.”

What Alan doesn’t say there, is in what was a long conversation – what other things were said.

If we were to hazard a guess at what Ashley said, it would be that the results so far this season are unacceptable, especially with all the new players Newcastle have brought in,  and Alan and the team must improve quickly – otherwise changes will be made.

It seems to us that if Newcastle are beaten again on Saturday, it’s almost certain that Mike Ashley will then call time on Alan Pardew being manager at the club – and Sunday’s conversation could have included such a warning.

The manager and the fans are not going to be helped by the massive demonstrations  planned against Pardew at St. James’ Park on Saturday – and you can bet the media will be all over that – both and after the game, whatever the result.

If it’s another defeat there will be even more calls for Alan Pardew to be fired.

It’s going to be a hostile atmosphere for the players on Saturday – no doubt about that – but it’s also time our players showed some guts, fight, courage and spirit, and not go down without a fight, as they did last week at Southampton.

Maybe Alan can talk about the guts and spirit Jonas Gutierrez has shown in his fight against cancer over the last year, and use that to try to inspire the players into going all out and playing at their very best on Saturday afternoon.

It’s time for some of our players to grow up – and quickly too.

    I know it’s an alien concept for you to understand mate but HBA wasn’t going to get used so how can you use that as an excuse now as not being replaced? Didn’t pardew come out and say he has a squad capable if competing for champions league now?

    You ask who would be good enough and make excuses for pardew for reasons unbeknown but no team has suffered more than Southampton, they had 6 new players starting on saturday and beat us by the same score as last year. They also have a new manager and have sold key players right down the spine of there squad whilst having rodriguez injured.

    Dortmund have lost key players every year and managed to progress. As have Ath Madrid, it’s a crazy concept that a team can lose players but still compete whilst being smart with the limited funds they do spend.

    Sorry but even if we win he’s just does not have the passion for the club and the drive the players need to get behind there manager. I am torn for the Hull Game, 70% of me wants us to win but 30% want us to lose the game. I know weird right as I always want us to win no matter what. But my thinking is if we lose and we get say Moyes in, he will have nearly the whole season to change things at the club, honestly I don’t see a future for this season with Pards being the manager.

    From Sky Sport, Pardew said ‘We’ve had good times here too, which seems to have been forgotten about”.

    The bloke is utterly delusional, is he banging on about two seasons ago? Or one or two decent results in the time since? It’s a results business, but hell he should have gone months ago if that was known by Ashley.
    Time after time I’ve seen managers come here and just not get it. It IS unlike any other club in England, we’re a one club city, where the team is sometimes the one thing that will get you through the working week. Take that out of people and you’ve ripped their soul out.

    anyways, he looks like he’s absolutely bricking it for Saturday. I’m not a vindictive person by any means but he really does deserve to get every bit of abuse he gets. Lies, bullsh!t and an ego the size of the Town Moor.

    of course he was upset about the performance. Really we focused on that. I never asked for any reassurance. All I do know is I signed a long contract here, for good and bad, and we’ve had some great times which seem to have been forgotten recently. We’ve had some tough days too, and this will be one of our toughest.

    I beg to differ alan, the bad times far, far outweigh the good times. Getting trounced on at least 6- 7 occasions a SEASON and playing nothing that resembles the game of football for going on 3 isn’t “good times”

    You signed a long contract? So your basically saying you have no intention of walking away. Another 6 years of that kunt and I’ll be in my fcuking grave!

    Dear john Carver

    I hope you read this website.

    you are not a fan any more , you are a guy who earns his money being a yes man, because if like the rest of us, you would have been able to see what was wrong 3 years ago and try and put things right, instead you CHOOSE to stick up for one of the main guys dragging this club and all of its TRUE supporters down.
    if you had any self respect you would stand down and walk away from what is happening, but no, you CHOOSE to abuse REAL fans who pay there hard earned money to watch the crap you and the holy one serve up to us on a weekly bases .

    one thing im very happy about is you only have a few weeks left in the job.

    I wish I could say good look in the future, but there isn’t many jobs out there for crap coaches like yourself

    how is it not fair

    you look at SBR record, do you think carver helped him that much.
    I don’t, I think he was there causing hassles like he was a kid.
    he went to Canada, failed .

    came back here and has failed.

    I can stomach another defeat if he goes with carver stone woodman and coloccini althpugh the latter less likely. At least a new manager will have the best part of the season to sort us out. We have international footballers amongst our ranks yet play like they’re from league 2. That to me is all the manager and coaches fault. Sack them all. Looking forward to saturday the atmosphere will be electric which is hasn’t been for some time thanks to pardumb. Especially looking forward to him squirming in the dugout!

    You say them players needed to be replaced but didn’t address how Koeman a new manager beats us when they have lost 5 of there best players from last season’s game along with the manager. He made the choices of getting rid of both HBA and MYM and I’m pretty certain he would have been made aware of the fact they couldn’t be replaced.

    Weak management is why he’s in the current position, Yanga wasn’t happy at being dropped for Colo which is clear in what he says. HBA was sent to train with the reserves because he apparently doesn’t work hard enough for pardews style. Meanwhile his replacement Cabella has made 2 monumental errors that have cost us and he hasn’t scored or got an assist yet (has he) at fault for the 1st goal against Southampton and the last goal for palace.

    Colback and Sammy were walking back when Southampton were attacking us which led to the 4th goal. Scapegoating HBA yet the hard grafters aren’t producing for him.

    I actually dont think.the result matters on saturday. I am starting to think he is a gonner no matter what. Win, lose or draw. You can hear the impending doom when he speaks, and see it in his body language. There sits one very uncomfortable man.

    Catchy, I didnt say he was cut out to be a manager, there are many great coaches that failed as manager, but I dont think Bobby Robson would have stuck with him if he was crap. Unless your saying Bobby Robson’s judgement in coaches was poor ?

    listen

    for all I know , he was SBR tea boy,,

    I have seen nothing from him to suggest that he brought something to SBR table that he didn’t already know.

    the guy had managed top football clubs all over the world.
    as for carver, tell me who he didn’t have a fight with at Newcastle ?
    I heard more about these things from him than football things,,

    I think where Catchy is coming from.here, is that, as a coach, Carver has failed to move with the times since Bobbys day. I dont often agree with him, but in this case i do. Carver is stone age compared to most other coaches and thier standards.

    RB tried to bring Mourinho with him as no2 didn’t he….he went with Carver but what were carvers duties? As with anything time moves on and if certain coaching members don’t improve then they become dinosaurs…football has changed a lot since BR (allah bless his soul) was here.

    Well my version of the Percy interview – taking into account his previously mentioned non verbal communication and applying it with the context of what he said I come up with :-
    1. He did discuss his future with Tubbs on Sunday.
    2. If he wins on Saturday he may be spared the sack.
    3.Due to the protests he will be taking a withdrawn role on Saturday.
    4. A loss on Saturday and he is OOT.

    I totally agree with the sack Pardew campaign this weekend although I doubt it’ll make much difference if we somehow manage to scrape a win.
    Ultimately Pards, Carver etc just aren’t up to it and seem to have lost the players and fans completely.

    However personal abuse is way past the mark, they are actually trying their best.
    Sadly that best seems to be way below the standard required

    Tea boy alright…

    Sir Bobby Robson has urged Alan Shearer to add John Carver to his Newcastle United coaching staff.

    In his column for the Mail on Sunday, Robson wrote: “My former No2 at Newcastle, John Carver, came back to England this weekend having resigned as manager of MLS side Toronto.

    “Even though the team were doing extremely well, John felt his job was being undermined by decisions being taken against his wishes ‘upstairs’.

    “I am hoping that bad news for Toronto means good news for Newcastle because a coach like him is exactly what the club need right now.

    “There are two main reasons for Newcastle’s shocking decline in the last five years, and why they need to beat Middlesbrough tomorrow night to have any chance of staying up.

    “One is bad signings and the second is bad coaching – dating all the way back to Graeme Souness, who let Carver go.

    “If Shearer sticks around, I’d love to think he might give John a call.”
