Pardew On His Way And Cisse Charged By FA


It looks like we will be without a manager soon, and it’s looking more and more certain that Alan Pardew will take the job as Crystal Palace manager,  and there is news that the two clubs may even reached agreement on the compensation to be paid to Newcastle.

Alan Pardew – on his way out of Newcastle

And add to that the fact that Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is almost certain to face a three-match ban after being charged with violent conduct today by the FA for elbowing Everton’s Seamus Coleman in the face during yesterday’s game.

The FA’s video review panel have reviewed the incident, and judged that it was worthy of a charge and a three-game ban.

Cisse now has until 6:00 pm tomorrow to respond to the charge, or simply accept the ban which would begin with immediate effect, and he would miss both the home game against Burnley on New Years Day and the FA Cup game at Leicester on Saturday.

He will not return until some time in February after playing for Senegal in the African Cup of Nations.

If the Pardew move happens, which has looked more and more likely all day as news has filtered through, we can only assume that during the first seven games of the season he had provisionally decided that he would need to get away from Newcastle because of the hostility of the fans.

Alan didn’t want to resign and when the Crystal Palace job became vacant on Saturday, it looks like he jumped at the chance to manage his former club,  and now it put a doubt over the remaining Newcastle coaches – John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman – and their time at Newcastle.

Newcastle will need to appoint a manager quickly, and there is no way we could get a manager like Frank de Boer in half-way through the season.

It seems that Tony Pulis and Steve Bruce are the two top candidates – but neither is really good enough to be Newcastle’s long term manager.

And if that’s all the choice Newcastle have, we’d like to see Tony Pulis appointed – maybe as a short-term measure until the end of the season.

And then we can see whether Pulis – the former Stoke City manager – can play attractive football with the good players he will have available at Newcastle.

It’s a huge surprise to us that Alan Pardew will leave the club so quickly and it follows a terrible year he has had at Newcastle, but in the end he left on his own terms, and he wasn’t fired.

We are 14 points from safety with 19 games to play. 😀

    Harley makes a decent, if not slightly aggressive point…. Optomism will be wiped out if we end up with another dud. Always a danger with Mash. Also many, including me have spotted the timing will almost surely be used as an excuse to write off the transfer window.

    What has split this blog through recent years has been the question; “who is to blame..Ashley or Pardew?”
    I always thought it was a false choice, and that the two were welded together in outlook and purpose. Both believing Newcastle to be a club no more significance than QPR or Palace. A distressed brand they moulded together in the Sports Direct image.
    I have always believed Pardew was literally irreplaceable for Ashley. The only times Ashley has ever stirred his arse ever the last four seasons has been to throw a defensive shield around his gold-dust manager. A manager who not just accepted the sale of his best players, but actively pimped for their sale.
    There are worse managers in this league. Pardew has hit his real targets.
    He got a bit ahead of himself once, as he himself admitted. Ahead of ourselves in the sense of getting ideas above our station by finishing fifth. We were never going to make that mistake again. Ever.
    If Pardew leaves, it is not simply a question of replacing him with another yes-man. Another such creature does not exist that fits Ashley’s mould as perfectly as Pardew does.
    I always believed the harder and aggressively we pushed for Pardew to go, the more bloody-mindedly Ashley would hang on to him.
    Ashley has a problem without Pardew. A VERY big problem.
    In the well-oiled machine that is Ashley’s Newcastle, Pardew contributes the oil.
    If Pardew goes, the wheels will fall off. Simple as that.
    And if he does go, I can only imagine that Pardew is convinced that his life at Newcastle will be an Ashley-induced Groundhog Day for ever and ever, with no end.

    The more likely this seems to be happening the more apprehensive I’m becoming. Not due to the loss of Pardew but the fear that we will completely cock up a good opportunity to progress.

    I really want De Boer, and would be well willing to wait until summer but will Ashley?

    Markaccus,
    Did you realistically have high expectations for this window though? If the Mail is to be believed, part of the reason Pards is leaving is because he was told there would be no incomings, and Sissoko would be sold if the price was right.

    As for replacements, well we can worry about that when we come to it I guess. It isn’t worth living in fear of the unknown though, the world would be a far poorer place if that was how the human race had evolved to be.

    If the man goes he goes, im not wishing for it, i admit im no fan of Pardew, its his choice by all accounts, it would be wonderful though If MA had a big surprise lined up and not one of the shanks`s pony lot he would normally consider, i certainly will take Pedro and see what happens, better him than Steve Bruce, who`s to say Pedro could not step up to the plate, he has cut his teeth, knows the club inside out, gets along well with our illustrious owner, and is tremendously well respected at the toon, yes i will take PB if it happens.

    If Pardew, the biggest ‘yes man’ to date, is leaving because of that, then which good manager is going to stand for it? It really does seem like we are going to get a pardew #2. I really hope im wrong.

    Last sentence – precisely, there must have been a point where Pardew’s own ambitions and needs were going to outstrip Ashley’s. After all, he is a footballing man, not a business man. It just seemed to us over the years that it had been well and truly buried. I actually hold some respect for him for leaving.

    I always thought it would have been better if Mash jad left first. Pardew would have soon followed and we would be looking at a different club. Mash will have to make do and mend i think until next season, when a few more suitable candidates may be available.

    So that was the straw that broke the camels back….very interesting.

    I’d have had a lot more respect for Pardew if he has made some demands or offered his resignation after we came 5th, when England and Spurs were sniffing around him. He should have really laid down the law with Ashley then.

    Hence me being firmly of the opinion Beardsley is Ashley’s ideal replacement. There is nobody at the club who is more keen to pander to Ashley if Pards leaves than Pedro.

    Yeah well none of our windows under Mash have ever lived up to much, although the Mail has a reputation as a sh1t stiring mass of toilet paper with print on it. I still expect socks to be sold, so they may have guessed that right.

    god help us with who ashley brings in… bet my bottom dollar its more tosh, cut from the same tree as pardew.

    the only kind of manager that would take this job would be one that wants to manage a club on the scale as us…. not to do well as manager… just someone that wants the status of it.

    we all know ashley wont invest, so when they sit down for interviews with bilic or FDB or any of that ilk and the subject of transfers etc comes up, that’ll be the end of any such hope of a decent manager

    If Ashley gets Beardo in for the rest of the season and the appoints De Boer and we win something, I will actually give him the credit for it rather than put it down to the law of averages.

    Sage,
    We shall see I guess. I’m not one for believing paper stories too often.

    It is hard to gauge really, every window he publicly outlined what he wanted, I’m struggling to remember a single window that he actually received what he was after. Yet he always praised the business done, and the squad he had available.

    He still had better at his disposal than he achieved mind, although I think this is the first time we have started a season without a top centre forward, and maybe with Ash refusing to grant him one half way he has had enough.

    Markaccus/Tads,
    I’m not saying I believe what they wrote, anyone who has followed Newcastle could have written that, in fact it isn’t far off what most fans on here were anticipating anyway.

    My point initially was that to say that Pardew leaving now is the reason we won’t see incoming transfers is misleading at best.

    Gary Neville isvsaying that Newcastle fams will now get to see for sure exactly how Pardew has done. He is of the opinion that his finishes have been above or on par, appart from the europa season, taking into account money spent et.c. I sort of agree, but its just the unexplaind stupid stuff and awful runs with horrible looking football that eventually changed my oppinion. Changing a system that was working (which he has done several times over several seasons) is the worst of it.

    Sparky, sorry had to leave but continuing from last thread.

    You mention only dummet, gouffran and Perez like pardew and the rest of the team want out. Don’t mean to be rude but that’s pretty stupid because over the past couple of months we have come from behind to either draw or win games. This only happens if the majority of the players support you. Not just, especially as in the three you mention a defender and a player who contributes nothing to a match (gouffran). Games against hull, swansea, Tottenham and yesterday come to mind. Whatever is said about pardew, and there’s a lot of bad things about him, it’s got to be said he had the backing of the players.

    Plus I’m not disspointed he’s left as I never thought he was for us since day one but I have to say the timing is bad and could negatively affect our season. I say could, not will. I’m also not naive enough to think that now that pardew is gone, we’ll go on a run and rip teams 3 or 4 nil, we’ll go on a cup run, we’ll challenge for Europe and play attractive, passing football while doing so. A lot of the problems our club has still remains.

    Looking from the outside you see players sold more than the ones bought as we buy low key players but sell them when they are big names for big money, so looks a lot worse that way.

    You all see 1 very good season, 2 ok seasons and 1 poor season on paper. So can see why some wonder what we complain about, but professional pundits should be looking in more details than they do, Stan Collymore is the worse for it.

    What the reality is, is very long runs without wins, terrible football, constant tinkering of successful ideas, playing some players who contribute very little and many more things.

    It annoys me when people say we only dislike him as he is associated with ashley then when people quote them stats they come back with comments like “well you beat chelsea” or “you beat man utd away”. What these people fail to see is they are bonus games, the real 6 pointers against sides around us are the issue, we lose way too many.
