I’m Doing The Best Possible Job Under The Circumstances


If Alan Pardew is to leave the Tyneside club it will not be by hos own hand – and he’s made it very clear he will not resign from his position as manager of Newcastle United.

Alan Pardew – doing the best I can

This is what Pardew has said to the press today:

“It has been suggested that I don’t care about this position, and that I’ve got this long contract so I’m going through the motions – nothing could be further from the truth.”

“I was absolutely sick after the game on Saturday, and the performance we put in was just not worthy of this football club.” “I’ve been accused of not taking responsibility for the defeat, but I think a lot of that is because I won’t criticize the players. But I love this football club.”

“I have been hurt this week, but for me, it’s really about, ‘What can I do then?’ Well, I’m under contract at this football club, and therefore I have to make sure I do the best possible job I can under the circumstances. That’s what I’m doing.”

“I’m pulled here and there, but as soon as I say, ‘Right, that’s me’, then I can’t offer any help to anyone,” “That’s not the way I am, and it’s not the way I’ve been made.”

“I’ll constantly be thinking, ‘What can I do to address this problem or improve this player’ until such time as I’m told I can’t. That’s how I’ve always worked, and how I’ll always be.”

“You can’t be in this job as long as I have been without having some tough days. This will be one of my toughest, but there is a resilience in my soul. It’s not an arrogance or my ego getting carried away – that’s not the reason I’m going to front it out.”

“It’s about being professional and going out there this weekend and being as strong as we can be. We will be trying to win back as many fans as we can with our performance – even if it’s just one that would help.”

It’s likely because of the demonstrations planned against Pardew by fans at tomorrow’s game, that we will not see him on the touchline at all – because that would only rile the fans.

It will be up to assistant manager John Carver to give out instruction and the like from the touchline.

Really Alan is in a difficult position tomorrow afternoon, because it’s a case of he’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

If he’s not seen on the touchline which was the case at Southampton, there will be criticism in the press, and if he does come to the touchline and riles up the fans, he will be criticized for doing that too.

One thing that may happen is that Newcastle get a couple of early goals and the crowd (possibly) settle down, – and while that’s always possible it’s hard to see it happening – after the last two performances – how this side has many goals in them,.

But you never know – we could always get a couple of own goals?

After all this is Newcastle United.

    The performance, if it anything like Southampton you will lose the rest of the fans who a clinging on blindly to hope.

    It’s not about you criticizing the players either, it’s about you being out of your depth, and totally inept.

    GET OUT OF OUR CLUB, that’s the only way you can help.

    Lee ‘Inside Info’ Ryder suggested that he couldn’t be recalled though didn’t he? Or was is Mark Douglas? maybe it someone else. Nice if Hatem has leaked it that he can.

    I wondered, privately, if HBA may just have insisted on a clause in the loan agreement that would allow the loan to be cancelled if AP left.

    Didn’t really think that would have happened.
    Not enough time, apart from anything else.
    And disrespectful to Hull, who have welcomed him and given him a chance to play.

    But – be great news if it all came to be.

    True, any excuse will do. at this club anyway. If the report is true, I bet Benny is back with a vengeance the day the inept one leaves. He could even be back in time to help the inept carry his boxes out to the car. 😀

    Toonincheek, I don’t think it is too disrespectful to Hull as we are his main employer and he is only going there because of the manager employed here.

    Unlike other players who can’t wait to leave, he wants to stay.

    If he’s added that to the contract, then Brucie will have known it and agreed to it as well.

    It could just be a little leak the game before the match to incite us further, mind. I hope not, and that it is true.

    Yep I agree, I’m also with you on Mbiwa, he should never have been allowed to leave when we are so short. I know he has a future buy clause in his contract, but not sure about a recall.

    I did give him 100% respect for going public on the managers inept long ball tactics. Don’t think he will ever come back here though.

    We let our best CB at the club go before he was even given a proper chance, we let our best forward go because Pardew could not manage him and now we want to score a bag of early goals, i can’t see that happening, knowing AP he will try, and i must stress try to be intra defensive not to concede and maybe knick one, that is his strategy, he does not believe in attacking football, please go now, a manager less team will function better than the current orders being issued

    “I’ve been accused of not taking responsibility for the defeat, but I think a lot of that is because I won’t criticize the players. But I love this football club.”

    By you saying you won’t criticise the player’s it’s tantamount to you blaming them and not yourself isn’t it?

    What has blaming yourself by saying I take the blame, got to do with the player’s?

    He’s like the fcuking riddler out of batman.

    If you loved this club as much as you’ve claimed then you’d resign. Simple as that.

    Your a egotistical cretin without an ounce of self respect.

    Just fcukoff!

    “I was absolutely sick after the game on Saturday, and the performance we put in was just not worthy of this football club.”

    So sick that he didn’t offer any instructions or encouragement the sideline for the embarrassment of being booed.

    Having said that, he was passing out nonsense tactics when we lost 0-6 to Liverpool which was only a facade to look like he had an ounce of control. When, in fact, the team looked as disorganised as ever.

    Nice one, Alan, you prat.

    Get out.

    “Once in possession of banners and/or cards, we suggest that supporters proceed as normal into St. James’ Park for a unified display throughout the 5th minute, to highlight Pardew’s unacceptable record of just 5 wins in 2014. However, should individuals wish to unfurl their banners and/or hold up their cards pre-match and at other points during play we would fully support that as well (just watch out for John Carver).”

    I think I may have sussed the info out.

    1. Ashley has paid a lump sum of the inept one’s contract.
    2. he wants Benny to make good on that money so he can sack the inept one.
    3. inept one sacked Benny can return.
    4. Benny will be offered a new contract with Ashley paying him back @ 25p a week, a bag of nuts and a case of pork pies.

    sorted.

    The man is so arrogant that he says it’s mass hysteria it’s gone to a level which makes it difficult for the players to perform.

    The fans aren’t protesting against the players they want you out!!

    hey c’mon, a lie is when you claim something is, when you know full well it isn’t.

    That’s a f@cken bare faced lie.

    It’s not a lie when you say something before the fact. It just isn’t. It’s naive, or ill judged, or whatever, but you can’t say he’s a bare faced liar, it isn’t necessarily so, and only a dummy would fall for it.

    MY theory on the hba recall clause if true.

    Something along the lines of this:

    Yesterday parsnip repeatedly mentioned his long contract with 6 years left to run. To me this is him telling fatty you’ll have to sack me because I’m not walking. (Disgraceful I know)

    Fatty realises that he’s not going to walk and to put more pressure on, (knowing full well that this was the straw that broke the camels back for many) instructs the sun (a paper who supposedly pay for access under the guise of media partner) to reveal that if parsnip walks we could in essence recall HBA back.

    By doing this he’s guaranteeing the protest will be more ferocious than it previously might of been.

    Excellent bit of manipulation by the dictatorship.

    As much as I despise the fat kunt if this is the case then I’ll give him this one.
