Official – Fans’ Forum Minutes Say Pardew Staying As Manager



The Fans’ Forum meeting minutes from last Monday night’s meeting  have just been released,  and the club has said that Alan Pardew will be staying on as manager.

Alan Pardew – staying on as manager

Here’s the section of the minutes – right at the beginning – that says Alan is staying:

The board explained that a detailed statement had been issued to announce LC’s (Lee Charnley) appointment so that supporters were clear on how the club intends to move forward, but that questions posed by members would be addressed as openly as possible.

In addressing the document, the board stated that Alan Pardew (AP) will remain the club’s manager. The board stated that incorrect media reports which claimed Newcastle United had contacted other individuals about the manager position were in the hands of the club’s legal team.

So we may get more newspapers banned from the Newcastle club, whoever first started that rumor that we were after St Etienne manager Christophe Galtier – but the news was first published in France: 🙁

Here are the minutes of the meeting from last Monday night held at St. James’ Park, if you want to find out what happened.

Fans have been unhappy with Alan Pardew all this year becasue of the terrible results, but since late last week the news being leaked out was that Pardew would stay on as the Newcastle manager.

So now we hope that Alan, Lee Charnley, Graham Carr and others will now work their tails off to get some good new players to the club in the summer – maybe we can thn make a new start in August.

Comments welcome.

    They were on about protest on Total Sport tonight and how it took 10K Lpool supporters to get rid of their owners, John Anderson says it couldn’t happen here, I’m quite saddened to hear that.

    I was just thinking. Could we scrap the whole football thing and just sell Sports Direct clobber at the ground?

    At this moment of time, he’s right. However, there’s clearly a lot of us who agree that Ashley is wrong for the future of our club and I’m sure that it is within our means to create a fan group capable of organizing mass protest. Only problem is we need the right people to establish such a group.

    Think of how many stalls you could set up on the pitch. All selling different horrible rags. Mike’s mum and dad coming to help run the stalls to save on wages. It’s a vision of the future isn’t it?

    I wonder what percentage of our new signings will turn out to be duds we ultimately can’t shift. Obertan, Marv, Gos, even arguably Benny, have been delivering far too little while on decent money and simply clogging up the roster, for what seems years. Mbiwa might turn out to be another, he has that vacant look about him. Cisse?, or DeJong too, for if Carr had gotten his way. It’s great to have some money to spend, if that’s to be the case. But how well it’s spent is entirely crucial of course. I don’t think Carr is infallible at all, nor Pards you’d certainly think, if he’s to be more invloved. I think if we don’t get it right, Ashley just might not do an awful lot about it, other than let us lie in our beds.

    What about Santon jimmysmith? Horrible defender under Pardew.

    Anyone watching the Europa league final?

    Decent game just about to go to penalties, but they’ve had Tim Sherwood on as a panelist, have to say fair play to him given the disgusting way Spurs handled his tenure and sacking he’s been very dignified and professional

    Its actually been a pretty good game. Not a fan of Sherwood though, feel like he hasn’t handled himself around the press very well. What Tottenham did was classless, but, Sherwood has made himself out to be a bit of a prat this season.

    On santon, disagree a bit
    He had a great first full season when he eventually broke through but had been terribly out of form before we signed him and had gone from rated under Mourinho but eventually getting loaned out to AC Cesena where he only played 11 games

    Maybe he’s just not that great of a defender?

    Awful penalties from Cordoza and Rodrigo!

    Sevilla win. Poor penalty taking by Benfica. They looked like England there.

    Think he’s blown his top a few times but why shouldn’t he?

    Fantastic win ratio for them got them playing well, bought through a couple of youngsters found a great way to get performances out Eriksen and all he done was face question after question about when he was getting sacked

    Aye about Santon tads. I hate to see him wasting away under Pardew. Not left footed, can’t cross from the left side. What is he doing playing LB for us?

    A lot of good wingers tore strips off Santon this season as well. He needs a fresh start elsewhere like Benny, and several others I suspect.

    He just doesn’t conduct himself in a professional enough way for me. For some reason, he reminds me of Kinnear.
    No doubt he’s done a better job than AVB but I still have doubts over his tactical ability.

    I think of us as a sort of elephants graveyard for players. They come to us to die.
