Newcastle Issue Statement On Alan Pardew


Newcastle have made a statement on the situation of manager Alan Pardew and have confirmed that an official approach has been made by Crystal Palace and compensation has been agreed and therefore Alan is now in talks with his former club.

Alan Pardew – statement issued

Here Is the rather short Newcastle statement.

“Newcastle United can confirm that Crystal Palace have made a formal approach requesting permission to speak to Alan Pardew in relation to their vacant managerial position.”

“Crystal Palace have offered compensation at a level whereby Alan has now been permitted to speak to them.”

“As a result of this development today (Monday), Alan will not be at training on Tuesday. Training will be the responsibility of assistant manager John Carver.”

“The Club will make a further announcement in due course.”

That basically means Alan Pardew is gone, with the Mail reporting a deal is all but certain.

It’s clear that John Carver will become the caretaker Newcastle manager for at least the next couple of games, which he has done a couple of times before.

He managed the home game against Blackburn in September, 2004 after Sir Bobby Robson was sacked and earlier this year he was the manager on the touchline after Alan Pardew had got himself banned for seven games, after foolishly head-butting Hull’s David Meyler.

And there is a surprising report in the Independent that club captain Fab Coloccini could soon be named the Newcastle manager.

    Loved Carraghers reaction to colo being favourite for the job…just burst out laughing ben asked “Coloccini, Fabricio Colocconi?” Haha

    My god things can get worse. Maybe colo will play his pal Chucky and we can see what he is like.

    We need Ashleh out of this club, he’s a disgrace to a great, historic pillar of the city.

    I’ve very very worried.

    It reads to me like Pardew wanted another striker in January and instead he was told Sissoko (who the team is currently built around) will be sold. And he has basically walked because he does not want to put up with having to defend this once again.

    Very very worried here. If we sell Sissoko we’ll end up in another relegation scrap regardless of the manager.

    Something always happens to derail our season, I was waiting for the mid-season fright but this is taking the p1ss hahaha. Now we have to lose a couple of players throughout January aswell.

    Good old Mike Ashley, cheers for another mediocre season! Hopefully not a relagation dog fight!

    The Chronicle says it will be Carver not Colo, Colo doesn’t have badges Carver does.

    Can Colo even be named manager?
    Surely he needs to hold at least some coaching badges to meet PL regulations?

    Usually player/managers don’t pick themselves. I hope coloccini still plays, he is flawed but he is still our best cb and we do need him.

    Didn’t we bring in Facundo Ferreya on Coloccini’s advice?

    Look at all you muppets calling for Pardew’s head, get a grip you uneducated northern monkeys. Have some realistic expectations for once, 9th is good, great, brilliant position under Mike Ashley.

    As much as Pardew was well overdue leaving, what if Colo breaks all the negative records that Pardew set? Another massive risk showing Mash is still no1 culprit. This was ALWAYS the one fear i had left should pardew leave.

    Ashley was never going to allow us to smile and be happy for too long was he?

    from captain of the side to captan of the ship in one fell swoop.

    although not the greatest of news in my book still happy and still doing me moon walk much to the disgust of me mrs who’s trying to watch Jason bourne

    Is Collo actually qualified, or even capable to hold a “Player / Manager” position in the Prem? Its simply a horrifying thought on every level!!

    Qualifications won’t be needed if he has somebody working with him who has them. He won’t iffocially but manager but he will be the manager.

    I can’t remember who the other one who did this is but it’s happened recently on the prem.

    whats made pards really want to leave though guys ?
    we all know he’s stubborn as hell !

    could it be that the striker he’s been going on about getting into the club for ages has been personally scratched off the cards by ashley ? or that no signings will be made in jan unless we sell players ? or that we wont offer sissoko or rolando improved contract offers to keep them at the club ?

    pay day for ash here if puds put offer in for rolando and arsenal for sissoko and chelsea for cisse like rumours and we fans have forgotten about the 80mil profits and tv rights he walked away with at start of the season.

    If anyone believes that Pardew is leaving for any honourable reason they are kidding themselves. He is an opportunist, he couldn’t give a toss about Newcastle United never has and never will.
    Sissoko may well be wilding January but that would not be a factor in Pardew leaving. He is doubling his salary and doesn’t have to hump up and down the country to do his job. It is as simple as that.

    This has shades of the season we went down we got rid of Keegan sold our best players in the window bought in a few okay players and got relegated funnily enough Ashley was in charge !

    If we sell Sissoko Arfa and Mbiwa with no replacements with Tiote , Cisse and Abeid away for 5 or 6 games that could see us back in the relegation mire

    Carver did not exactly do well last season when Pardew was suspended did he?

    Just hope the players respond against Burnley and get the win

    Don’t like willo and Taylor together. One player is average at best and the other makes everyone panic if coloccini isn’t beside him.

    Talks of him doing anything between doubling his wages or getting 5 times as much (2mil at palace).

    Then add to that he is moving close to his family and going to a club who want him.

    Plus all the speculation like players being sold, no money for players coming in, might be on his last chance with ashley, etc
