Pardew To Have Serious Conversation With Ashley


There’s not too much Alan Pardew could say after the game tonight, as Newcastle failed to score for the fourth game in six game in the league this season, and a huge problem we have is that we just cannot seem to score goals.

peter croach scores

Peter Crouch heads home the winner after 15 minutes

That was epitomized in the 84th minute when Gabby Obertan made a great run down the right wing, crossed the ball to Jack Colback, who had the ball five yards out – and he somehow managed to hit the post – when he should have put the ball into the back of the net for the equalizer.

It’s not surprising that Alan Pardew didn’t look too good during the interview after the game, he’s taken so much abuse and criticism over the last several weeks.

But the manager handled himself very professionally both before and after the game on TV, to his credit.

This is what he said to Sky Sports after the game tonight:

“It leaves us in the bottom three. We’ve got to fight, I’ve got to fight and the team’s got to fight and that’s what we’ll continue to do until we turn it around.¨

“I don’t expect a serious conversation with Mike Ashley tonight but I think we’ll have some serious conversation before Saturday because he doesn’t want to lose and nor do I.¨

“It’s important that I showed to the team that I’m here to lead.¨ “I’ve never really been in this situation before – it’s unique – but I’m a professional football manager. That’s what I do, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”

“It’s a tough place to come to – Stoke – on any given day but today was tough for us.¨ “There were only slight margins in the game, but unfortunately another defeat for us and you can’t keep getting beat so we’re going to have to address that.”

Mike Ashley did not look a happy man at the end of the game, and if Alan Pardew is to be fired we should hear about it tomorrow morning.

This is a low time for Newcastle United.

    Hello Alan, Mike here, you’re fired me old mucka.

    Seem to remember him being in a similar situation at west ham. Bolton away on sky one night I think, getting murdered and West Ham fans up in arms wanting him out.

    ED…You missed the best quote of the interview

    “that goal gave them a good seat to sit on…they’re good at that stoke!”

    Another priceless Parewism for sackpardew.com to post up on their web-site.

    One things for sure…if he survives tomorrow we know Pardew has a video of the fat controller shagging young boys…

    Unique? He’s been sacked before. He nearly got us relegated.
    I’d say he’s a veteran of this position.

    If I were religious tonight’s bedtime prayer would be waking up to read he’s been sacked.

    Terrible performance yet again with no service from the wings until Obertan came on, poor passing in fact just down right dreadful. What are you waiting for Mike ?

    we do have goal scores at the club, and we probably wouldnt conced so many goals if we played to there strengths,
    the fact we seem to pack MF and play quite high always plays into other teams hands.

    for hight reasons alone today pardew should have said williamsson, stick to crouch lick glue, do not let him get near colo,bang a goal

    sage aye but said managers tbf are in totally different leagues plus they have far far greater acadamy’s than any prem team that always produce

    the prem isn’t just tough and faster its ruthless in terms of whole set-up

    these managers that do well at ajax or athletico have far far deeper reasons to why they do well imo

    Pardew out. I was one of those fans that has stuck by pardew through everything that has happened but it comes to a time when you can’t support someone who seriously can’t get things right. Taken of a striker when we’re 1 down and desperately needing to win the game is absolutely crazy. We needed Riviere and cisse to both attack together in the second half to stand any chance. Pardew has the heart and old fashioned ideas typical in a English manager but he hasn’t got one tactical brain cell.
    Things NEED to change and now

    catchy sorry but name our prem league proven goal scorers?

    and then show the stats of our prem league proven defenders

    and then realise that 1 man has broken up every team that has been built every season or even half season with out replacements and at 1 time a whole years worth of no replacements!

    now catchy tell us all your replacement that is believable under ashley (and if you say solkjier you’ll be laughed of the blog)

    dream on

    pardew has done just as much to force players out the door as ashley has,
    his style of play is not what players want,

    so you pick one name that didnt work out, yet the guy went to a club with a worse chaiman than us, it was never going to work

    if you read the last thread you will finf my 3 names, ubtil the end of the season

    I too have supported pardew up til now. Not that I particularly like him but I feel Ashley is the greater problem and i felt the stability of keeping pardew would be better. But, regardless of Ashley we have been so awful this season its so clear a change is made. With the players we have I honestly think a fresh approach to the team is all we need. Personally I would go for Moyes or even some young hungry manager like Solskaer.currently we are the shittist team in the league.

    More Pardew witticisms:
    “We should have won that one if I’m honest. But they were stubborn and decided to use a goalkeeper. That ruined my whole plan to begin with. I had to develop a whole new strategy on the trot. It was difficult. Johnny C. was a tremendous help. He said “Alan if you’re sacked don’t mention my name to Mike.” 😯

    it is simple common sense:

    1) the 4-2-3-1 is NOT WORKING. He use it 2 seasons ago and it NEVER work

    2) Williamson and Collocini and Ageing and Slow. He keep playing them week in week out.

    3) Freekick and Corners tactics – pass to williamson, and it NEVER Work !!!

    4) Try 4-4-2. Riviera used to be partner of Falcao so there is nothing to losing of trying.

    5) Gouffron forget how to attack!!! Yup he is good in defending BUT do we keep a clean sheet? NOOOOOO

    Do people on this blog still stick up for Pardew ?!?!?

    Even Warnock or Allardyce would have us playing better all we need at the moment is someone who can organise the team and play to our strengths ! Any manager with half a brain could do that !!

    Different set pieces , movement up front , playing players in the correct positions and also playing players in form its not difficult !!

    People slag the likes of O Leary Leeds were great to watch under him and go to the semi final of Champions League which is more than Pardew has ever managed !!

    Plenty of managers from abroad work under the conditions set by Ashley on a daily basis and thrive cant tell me a decent manager will not want to work with :

    Cabella , Janmaat , Krul , Sissoko , Cisse , De Jong , Mbiwa , Arfa (if both recalled) Colo , Abeid , Aarons , Armstrong etc

    Any half decent manager would have that bunch of players well drilled with good passing moves and flooding the box when in the final 3rd

    Plenty of decent managers available who are out of work who would work wonders with the players we have available and also if we really want we could take someone from another club

    Moyes and Pulis while not the most spectacular would be able to save us from relegation which is probably as good as it will get this season

    Neil Lennon plays good football , has done well in Champions League , is a winner and plays youngsters will probably be able to bring decent scouts with him as well

    Lots of good young managers in Spain , Holland and France who would jump at the chance to manage in the premiership

    Every appointment will be a risk but Pardew is not going to turn it around we could be relegated by xmas if we keep going this way

    Manxpie – just saw yr comment re Solskjaer. Yr probably right, I will be laughed at but I suspect most would currently take him if it meant pards leaving. I thought Dummet was our best player tonight, and he wasn’t that good which says it all really.

    The amount of space Stoke had to run in on the counter attack was unbelievable, especially in the first half. Moses could have run the full length of the field several times. You just can’t give a counter attacking side that much space Alan. Why am I giving advice to Alan? It’s like talking to an overripe banana.

    By no means condoning O Leary !! But he would be better than Pardew !!

    Cisse is a proven goal scorer when service is provided as is Riviere in other leagues get the ball into the box and they will score !! Dont punt it up to them and hope for the best it has to be fast low balls into the box how Pardew has not figured this out by now beggars belief

    the guy won the league 2 seasons in a row with a team that had not won it for 100 years, he must have something if he can do that.

    where as dummet blocked tackled and headed away all game plus put crosses in

    ffs he doesn’t have a chance if fans hammer him but let the opposite full back get away with murder and for at least 3 games in a row!

    who was our best player then?
