Manager Speaks Out About Anonymous SackPardew Group

Alan Pardew has given a long interview in the Evening Standard today, and he has talked about the attempts to have him sacked by the web-site.

Alan Pardew – he has never been on the web-site

This is what Pardew said in an interview with the Evening Standard today about the  group – who still remain anonymous:

“I have never been into the website,” “When the website started somebody said to me it was quite an organised website. It wasn’t like a nine-year-old on the computer sort of saying, ‘I don’t like Pardew’. It was much more serious than that.¨

“You just have to stay with your philosophy, believe what you do is right.¨ “It’s certainly been the most difficult time for me in Newcastle. The back end of last season spilled over into this season when we sold Yohan Cabaye and did not have a replacement.¨

“We were a bit unlucky at the start. Against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, we should have won but we lost. It looked to our fans that we were in reverse.¨ “So it was tough. Some of the personal jibes were hurtful.¨

“You can’t disguise that. But you have to be resilient, particularly as a Premier League manager. You have to ride the storms.¨ “I’ve had a few setbacks in my career and not just in Newcastle. In the Championship at West Ham, we really had some tough days.¨

“Against Millwall, I lost 4-0. Can you imagine the West Ham manager losing 4-0 to Millwall and surviving?¨ “That steeled me for what’s happened in Newcastle. Your credibility, your respect everything goes out of the window. You have to fight to get it back.¨

“I’m quite good at getting over games. I try not to put the pressure which is on me on to the players, my staff and certainly not my family. You have to be quite single-minded and focused in what you are doing.”

The group have not changed their opinions on Pardew, after Newcastle have now won five games in a row,  and will probably not change their minds if we win 10 games in a row.

In fact we would really like to test that hypothesis in real life. 😀

With Newcastle’s uptick in form and results, and Pardew creating himself some time – this now looks like a long-term campaign to change the manager at Newcastle.

Here are the aims of the sackpardew group – taken directly from their web-site – and it may be time for them to reveal who they are – simply because this is going to be a long term campaign – and what’s the reason behind remaining anonymous in any case?

Three fundamental elements that all supporters require to unite behind their team.

The fans will always bring passion, but the club and the manager must enable them to be proud and to believe through their actions and words.

This is why Alan Pardew is not the correct man to take Newcastle United forward.

He cannot make us proud or make us believe that he can take this great football club in the right direction.

There have been far too many unsavoury incidents, contradictory statements and disastrous results for his tenure to continue unchallenged.

This site documents his failures as a manager and will continue to highlight them until there is a change.

We call upon Mike Ashley to remove Alan Pardew from his post and to appoint a suitable candidate based on merit, in an open and transparent manner, as soon as possible.

We will use all methods at our disposal to see this come to pass.

I hate to say this,  but some Newcastle fans do feel proud,  that not only have we won five games in a row, but our youngsters have also played very well in those games, so things are even looking up at Newcastle right now.

We’ve been enjoying the win streak and the uptick in form and the good publicity the club has been getting recently – we assume that’s OK as Newcastle fans.

We’re always  happy (ecstatic is a better description) when Newcastle win – and long may it continue for the good of the club – whoever the manager is.

    he was right to get criticised imo ! he can cry about it as much as he likes but it wasnt untill the fans turned on him that he changed the way we played games and stopped trying to defend a 0-0 or 1-0 for 80 odd mins a game.

    just the same as most fans could see guti was no good for us yet he kept playing him and now the same happening with goofy !

    look at what works percy and learn from your mistakes and most toon supporters will have your back.

    I think the manager should jog on!

    Poor West Ham fans 4-0, how many times Sunderland beat us under this fool.

    Single minded more like bloody minded, factors forced his hand and he revels in his glory like he’s a genius, things are terrible for ages and it’s not his fault.

    I’d prefer Alan to leave before his next record breaking run as I’m convinced he won’t be breaking any good ones anytime soon.

    your an idiot 🙂

    reading pardew on here , his problem is because of the way he thinks, he is not spouting this rubbish because of his few lucky wins , the problem is he thinks he is right all of the time , he puts the last game he lost behind him and moves on , tomorrow’s a new day,

    he does not think it should bother us that we lose so many games , we should put them behind us, just like him ,
    this just proves he should not be a manager, the football club to its fans is everything , losing is not an option, fans want to be proud of there club, right now I’m embarrassed by it , who owns it and what it stands for,
    football is about emotions , pardew has none , just give him his money and be quiet

    It’s perfectly clear from the short extract which Ed.published, that the campaign to get AP the sack will continue irrespective of the results obtained throughout the rest of the season.
    It is not, therefore dependant upon how well the team are doing, but is based upon a deep hatred of the man himself, and, following a short respite while we, or most of us, are celebrating the recent wins, we should expect it to erupt again in all it’s foul mouthed fury as soon as the winning streak comes to an end.
    The best Pardew can hope to do is to win over the vast majority of fans by creating a winning squad of players, and to leave the bitter few on the site to stew in their own bile.

    Whatever about Pardews failings, he definitely will acknowledge that the other team was better , often, when we lose. In fact he is one of the more magnanimous in that regar. Do u ever hear Pulis, Fat Sam, Mark Hughes etc do this ? I havent.

    Once again Pardew speaking honestly in this interview. I still think the way he has handled himself and the media over the last few months is admirable, whatever you think about his failings.
    The personal jibes were embarrassing to read at times. The insults ranging from at least childish (eg wearer of silly glasses…P45 due… Etc etc) to downright offensive. Good on him, I would say, for showing some character. As I would have said about anyone in any walk of life undergoing similar abuse

    I think SackPardew.Com just may have given him the kick up the backside he needed. And it WAS needed!

    Got to say though, he has handled it well.
    Long may SasckPardew.Com continue to keep him on his toes

    Hahahahahaha ——-what a wally —straight into the self capture net.

    The West Ham photographer said to Percy:-
    ““I told him you can’t just take someone else’s dinner. Pards retorted, ‘When you’re the king, you can do anything’.”

    So it would appear that Percy actually christened himself as King -and therefore nobody on the blog or at is “guilty”.

    More spouted tosh from the exploding cigar co-operative.

    It’s a free blog I guess… Fill your boots then guys.
    Injuries are going to jolt our great run,that’s a fact. Not an excuse if we falter, but a nasty symptom to deal with none the less. If I was a young centre half anywhere near the club I’d think my trainsa coming that’s for sure!

    I agree every injury should be seen as a opportunity for someone to make their claim.
    Abeid will be a big miss IMO we move the ball a lot quicker with him in the side.
    It will be very interesting to see the team selection for Qpr.

    If Abeid ,Taylor is injured and Colo out I would go for this team as I think QPR will go 442 :

    Cabella RW
    Cisse CF
    Perez CF

    Means we can match them up and still have plenty of pace I think Cisse and Perez could work together quite well if given the right service

    The other option would be 451 with Raylor in the middle and either Cisse or Perez on the bench

    That looks a decent plan to me… Colback and Sissoko a must in the middle as I think they will want to try to bully us in the middle of the park. Hope Barton plays. It will be an interesting study in psychology. Joey’s always a good bet for that!

    You’re quite right, injuries are, I fear, going to derail our winning run before long, and what can we expect. If the manager so much as mentions the fact that the recently successful side is suffering from injuries, you can bet your bottom dollar that the Pardew haters will be out in full force accusing him of making up ‘excuses’. We’ve heard it all before and we’ll soon be hearing it all again – more’s the pity.

    When Cisse and Aaron’s got injured recently did you think there’s a excuse for the Pardew haters or Pardew should have listened to his medical staff and not play them?

    Sadly, you’re right. Each to their own. But I understand the mentality even if I don’t agree with it. It’s people’s right to be miserable if that’s the way they’re made. Howay me BONNY lads. Proud to be a toon fan come rain or shine.

    After 3 years at the reins of Newcastle and over seven hundred games in management under his belt, and most likely his best years ahead of him, it’s quite conceivable Pardew is realistically the best man for a job that we know is a very difficult one.

    I view Pardew as a guy who has grown in stature and ability as time has passed. Got into first class management early, made mistakes and learned from them.

    That’s looks an open and honest interview right there, and far from the first from him.

    Judging Pardew or any manager is notoriously difficult. How far back to you go to do it? The course of a dozen games, a season, 2,3, a career. How much weight should be given to the hand he’s been given to play?

    I’m pleased Pardew wasn’t sacked. I thought he was a goner and I hope he can and back him to deliver a period of stability and consistency and decent football that’s long over due. How do you come through what he has and not now deserve the backing of the owner and the fans.
