Alan Pardew asked John Carver to do the post match interview after the excellent 3-2 win over Everton at St. James’ Park.
Alan Pardew – on the sidelines today against Everton
And there is speculation that Alan Pardew – who is now odds on favorite for the Crustal Palace job – may leave Newcastle for the London club.
But why do they read that into Alan not doing the interview – especially after we won for the first time in five games.
John Carver said this to the press about why he was doing the interview and not Alan:
“I went into the dressing room afterwards, because we have an Under-21 fixture on Tuesday. I was sorting out the players for that, and then the manager asked me to go and do the Press.”
“He just said ‘would you go and do the Press for me?’ That was it.” “I was actually eating a pie at the time! He’s fine. He’s delighted.”
Alan Pardew played for Crystal Palace from 1987 through 1991.
It makes no sense that Alan Pardew would accept the job at Crystal Palace and leave Newcastle to play to crowds less than half of those at St. James’ Park – and especially after owner Mike Ashley has stood by him this season.
Alan would also have to take a significant wage cut – since Crystal Palace don’t have the financial means of Newcastle United.
It just makes no sense to us why Alan Pardew would take the Crystal Palace job.
But we’ve been wrong before. 😀
Alan Pardew was initially at 20-1 for the Crystal Palace job, but Sky Bet took a load of money on him last night and he’s now 4/7 odds on for the job.
