Alan Pardew is under tremendous pressure at the moment with Newcastle second bottom of the league with just 3 points from our first six league games and a tough game at Swansea on Saturday – a game we lost 3-0 last season.
Alan Pardew on Monday night at Stoke
Alan Pardew was asked about his position by BBC Radio Newcastle and he said the following:
“In football, I think there is always criticism and mocking of some description or whatever.” “You’ve just got to be strong and get on with it.”
“I’m a professional football manager. I’ve got a contract here, and I’m going to continue to try and lead the team to the best of my ability.”
“We’re losing games, and I have to turn it around to the best of my ability,” “I think the team showed at Stoke that they fought to try to get something out of the game.”
“The margins slightly went against us. When Stoke take the lead, they sit deep and make it very, very difficult for you.” “We had to come up with a really good answer and we couldn’t find it, although Jack Colback almost did at the end.”
Pardew is amazingly the Premier League’s second-longest serving manager behind only Arsene Wenger, who has been successful at Arsenal since taking over from Bruce Rioch there in 1996.
Alan is the odds-on favorite be the first manager to be fired in the Premier League this season, and he’s 2/7 at the moment on Skybet, followed by West Brom’s Alan Irvine at 7-1, who has just won three games in a row.
Pardew and Newcastle United need a win at Swansea on Saturday to start turning this thing around, and we for one are hoping we can do just that.
