Pardew – I’ve Got A Contract – I’ll Continue To Lead The Team


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.

    Wont be posting much until the mobile site is back. The desktop one is twatful on my phone….

    Just want to say that i am glad Jonas has found a companion to help him through. She’s clearly a stunner, but more importantly she is obviously about more than just the glamour and money that comes with a pro footy player, as she was fully prepared to go through all this with him, despite them not getting together until just before he started treatment.

    So basically, as long as he’s earning his money from the contract, he doesn’t care how far he drags us down with his severe lack of management/coaching ability.

    Disgraceful.

    Pardew needs to be stoned out of town… He is probably stoned already though.

    LR32 – Unfortunately, P45DUE doesn’t see it that way. He sees himself as a leader, a manager who plays attacking, flowing Football. He is proud of his achievements; he is proud to be our Manager.

    He is working with what he is given, having little or no say in who comes, who goes, or when.

    The biggest promlem at NUFC is our Illustrious Owner.

    you could really make a career out of missing the point. Giving pardew the best players in the world wouldn’t make him a good manager. Now inwardly digest and remember for future reference.

    Pardew bleated on forever about cabaye, Soto lost 11 good players but made shrewd buys and got a good manager. pardew has wasted our shrewd buys and sanctioned MYM and HBA going out on loan and he is still in situ displaying zero class as per his boss. Go figure.

    The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. How many times has that applied to one trick pony pardew?

    While i am in full agreement with his lack of ability and his lying nature and the fact he should be sacked, he is quite clearly NOT saying what you have written there. You are coming across with blind hatred. It is much better when you quote what he has actually said in the past and pull it to bits. His comments are delusional at best, blind at worst. The numpty really believes he has the skills to turn it around, and the more scary thing is, i think Ashley believes it too 😮

    Lead the team to the best of his ability? But if his best’s not good enough, he has to go!

    Telling choice of words.

    “I’ve got a contract here . . ”
    not
    ‘I’ve got a job to do here . . “
