Alan Pardew Supports Newcastle

A disastrous run of eight consecutive defeats under interim head coach John Carver has meant that we are now in serious danger of relegation, and we have one point from our last nine games and our last win was 11 weeks ago.

Alan Pardew when at Newcastle

But former manager Alan Pardew does not think Newcastle will take the drop, and of course Crystal Palace are 7 points above us in the league table after being 10 points behind us when Alan left for London at the beginning of the year.

That’s how well Pardew has done at his former club, and how badly John Carver has done this year as the Newcastle head coach – when he’s won just two games of the 18 games he’s been in charge.

And while we’ve had injuries and suspensions, a good coach would have done better than getting just two wins and having a record-breaking streak of eight successive defeats in the Premier League.

This is what Alan has said:

“I don’t think they’ll go down. If someone said to me with two games to go they couldn’t finish above us when I left I thought you’d be completely mad. It is a strange scenario where they have found themselves.”

“And now they need to show, particularly the starting XI, they must produce at QPR. And they must produce against West Ham. I have great confidence that they will.” “They have been through a few wars so they are battle ready. Hopefully they have the fight in them to get over the line.”

“I have great friends at Newcastle and great professional people that I have worked with and I really hope they get over the line on Saturday and that it is done before they have to face West Ham.”

Those are good words from Alan Pardew.

We can thank the still anonymous SackPardew crew for having Newcastle in this mess we are in at the moment – along with the stupid decisions made by Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley in January.

Be careful what you wish for.

We are hoping our supporters at the game tomorrow will support the lads 100% on to the victory we need to avoid the drop.

However, it’s difficult to believe there are protests planned against Mike Ashley in our final two vital games of the season.

Those people planning these protests – whoever they are –  must realize that any protests during a game against the club – owner Mike Ashley in this case – are certainly not helpful to the players on the field – and the players have said that.

The team needs to have the fans behind them more than ever in these two final games.

    I hate the mess we’re in just like anyone and don’t like the regime but I certainly don’t want to see us relegated again,it’s no gaurantee of getting back up and it could take years,which would be hard to take.

    I believe staying in the PL is a must.
    If he shows his cards are the same as always and he doesn’t strengthen the team like he should ,then empty St.James,boycott everything until something happens but it’s best for us to stay in the league IMO

    The last thing we need is Pardrew and his fcuking line at a time like this.

    Gloating about Palaces league position compared to ours shows what a self obsessed egotistical prick he is.

    If his asre was as big as his mouth, his legs would fall off.

    You’re wrong Ed, and so out of touch with the real fans. The ‘sackpardew crew’ did not appoint John Carver. They helped rid the Club of an inept manager – they helped create the situation for a decent manager to be appointed. The fact that the opportunity was squandered by Ashley, and inexplicably, he chose to appoint the even more inept Carver, is entirely the responsibility of Ashley. He is totally blame for the shambolic situation throughout NUFC and he, and he alone, should be accountable.

    Ideal results tomorrow for me would be wins for us, Hull & Leicester. Put the scum in the red and they should struggle to get out with the two toughest fixtures left. Plus I don’t think Hull deserve to go down, they’ve put in some valiant displays recently and it would be a shame to see them go. Mackems have been no more than lucky. 2 pens in one game & then two complete fluke goals. Too long have they diced with relegation and managed to pull out of it at the last minute. We need to take care of our own business first though, hoping for a win tomorrow!

    Ed, what you can thank the ‘sackpardew crew’ for is being ACTIVE in the attempted dismantling of a corrupt and snide group of people who are running our club into the ground.

    Whilst others have their heads in the sand doing nothing, which in turn will lead to NO change at all, they/we have applied pressure to the inadequate management and ownership to increase the chances of their departure.

    should be thanking them for trying to do something, whilst the passive fan is Ashley’s biggest desire. To shut up, turn up, buy the merchandise, and follow the team in the delusional state of mind that all we should be happy for, at best, a top ten finish with proven management failures in charge as well as zero outlays in which ever transfer window they choose.

    Not good enough.

    Thank you, sackpardew/ashley out, I will continue to do my bit to reinforce the ACTION that you take. I will not sit idly whilst they use the the club as one big marketing hoarding without any care for the club or the fans who make it what it is.

    Ashley out.

    @Roppa – you are correct there, mate.

    These pieces by Ed citing the ‘sack Pardew crew’ are getting tedious as well as being mind bogglinly wrong for a Club blog site. Maybe things look different on TV from the States but it sure wasn’t that way in reality.

    But enough is enough. Pardew walked without doubt knowing what was going to happen in January (nothing, except more players out). If his performance was better the fans would not have been on his back. There is absolutely no guarantee we would be in a better state if he had stayed especially as we barely avoided another relegation under him.
    29th December of last season to 28th Dec this season (including his 6 win streak) the man won only 12 games out of a total 39!

    Sack Pardew was interesting.They orchestrated an astonishing and withering attack an one individual, rather than the other who gave him his remit and restricted his resources, and then strangely fell silent, if you accept MAOC is essentially the same group of people. You’d think that if they’ve brought down one to get at the other, then they have certainly contributed to our current plight. If the target was always Ashley, why didn’t they go straight after him, rather than effectively attack the side. I suppose the conviction was that Pardew was complicit. I never really bought that. The way he left suggests he had developed a dissatisfaction with the owner and a sense that he was being treated unfairly by the fans. It was certainly difficult to watch and listen to the abuse he was given, even when we were going on one of our rotten runs. It was that brutal, and the real villain, of course not present. Perhaps that’s it. Pardew was the far easier and present target.

    One of the worst articles i have read on this site.

    How can you blame the SPDOTCOM for our present situation? Pardew was a good manager,but he wasn’t good enough for us.
    A good manager should be replaced by an even better manager.
    The only people to blame are the decision makers.

    ED,i wouldn’t be surprised if you blame The Fans for our relegation(GOD forbid).

    I’ve been wondering what your thoughts are on the ASHLEYOUT.COM brigage,now i know where you stand.

    Ed, I realise it must be very difficult for you (Stateside) to have any synergy with the fans, but if you read the comments from your readers you would very quickly realise that your readers are passionate fans who only want what is best for NUFC.
    Rather than read other general media information, please read the comments of your readers – they will tell you all you need to know in order that you may ensure that the Blog represents the true fans – the fans who are ready to make huge personal sacrifices to rescue the Club from its despotic owner.

    Chasing_Rabbits. Hull must go into the play offs. It’s the only way we can get safe today. If NUFC win and Hull lose it’s done and dusted and we can all relax. Staying in the EPL should be our only goal at this stage – anyway, I would like the Mackems to stay up so we can put the record straight next season!

    What play offs. But yes I agree it would be better to guarantee safety sooner rather than later but after the season we’ve had the only silver cloud would be watching them go down! Plus I don’t know how confident id be of breaking that record at the moment unless there are drastic changes!

    If Ed thinks that the club is in the sorry mess we’re in because of a protest group then he’s either completely out of touch with the feeling around the place or he’s trying to drum up hits on an uninterested blog. We would probably have been about six or seven points better off with Pardew still here, pundits would be saying what a good job he’s doing under thegcircumstances. Mike Ashley would be continuing his abuse of the club unchecked, now instead of the Nation thinking that we’re all delusional and expecting CL everyone can see how Ashley is running the club, without Alan Pardews barely acceptable football Ashleys model has been well and truly exposed.
    The reason sackpardew targetted him was because he was sh1t and was propping up this disgusting regime with as I said some barely acceptable results, getting rid of him gave Ashley the chance to improve things and get a better manager in, he did nothing of the sort and therefore left the door open for there to be enough popular support for a AO campaign.
    The ‘anonymous’ sackpardew lot weren’t responsible for our negative goal difference year after year, our 25% of games being three or more hammerings, our previously record losses on the trot orvdefeat to the mackems, the list continues, Mike Ashley has been making ridiculous decisions long before sackpardew came along Ed !

    I can only assume that Ed is merely trying to stoke up the blog with WUM type comments like that. The mess the still anonymous sack pardew crew has us in??
    I’m gonna be charitable and assume that nobody could be that short sighted.
    Its virtually all Ashley’s doing I’m afraid, with a smattering of shirking from some of our ‘senior’ pros.

    NUFC 2014/15 PL with/without Papiss Cisse:
    20 games: 7 losses, 6 draws, 7 wins = 27 points
    16 games: 11 losses, 3 draws, 2 wins = 9
    And to think they tried to sell him in January. Was that sackpardew.coms fault.
    Pardew knew full well that the season was being written off in January again and couldn’t wait to get out of here, he should have jumped ship after we finished fifth and he’d have been a legend up here, instead he took the money to peddle lies.

    I didn’t even read this article just skipped to the comments. Once I’d read them I decided to read it.

    Wish I hadn’t.

    Nobody can be that short sighted surely?


    You are without doubt the perfect type of fan for the slug. He’d love you back in blighty mate.

    Oh and jimmy,

    It wasn’t because the king was the easier target. It was because he was shit at his job first and foremost and the perfect defensive shield to withstand flak for the slug.

    Now he’s gone of his own accord (helped no doubt by some of the pressure applied by “the crew”) and replaced by the clearly desperate for the job and inadequate flak deflector honest john (who let’s face it if he was that honest he’d admit he isn’t up to the job) it’s shown fatty to be what he is and what most knew all along.

    A massive twat who’s serving his own needs to the detriment of the clubs.

    Massive and I mean HUGE twat.

    I support when groups like sackpardew attack the opportunists;

    …I would welcome and support any protest made to put the spotlight on conmen and opportunists like Charmless and Carver after Pardew!

    It tells the world we won’t stand for it and maybe just maybe the next opportunist will think twice before he except a job offer from Ashley and helps him exploit us (not just to help him it seems, but to further their own self interests)

    I simply despise people like that! They are an otter disgrace!

    So Pardew would have been a legend up here if he had left following the season in which we finished fifth would he ?
    All he got from the Pardew haters was that we had a lot of lucky wins, the top teams in the division were not performing etc.etc. – anything rather than give any credit where it was due.
    He comes out with a few words of support for us in the dire situation in which we find ourselves, and they are thrown back in his face.
    Says it all really, doesn’t it ?

    I have been a season ticket holder now for 25 years, so I have seen some dross over the years, but what has made it worthwhile is that no matter who pulled on the jersey, no matter how inept the player, they tried, the club tried, the fans supported, together we hoped to be better than we actually were. Hope, a big word, one that is now lost at Newcastle. The friends and fans I sat with over the years, not one now thinks Newcastle has a future, there is nothing left to hope for. So the whole sorry pack of cards that is Nufc, has to come tumbling down, it started with Pardew and it must finish with Ashley, we need our soul restored and the hope and belief back on the terrace. Until then I am finished, after 25 long years I and others are walking away.
    The sackpardew crew have my respect, at least they tried.

    I think Alan Pardew has probably been dissatisfied with the owner but remained complicit until a better offer came along. Had the better offer not came along, he would still be here, dissatisfied with the owner, but keeping his mouth shut and getting paid for it.
