Last updated : 29 April 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

The bookies now have Pardew as 9/2 favourite to be the next manager to leave their position.

Alan Pardew: "Well that's out of my hands.

"Until I'm told otherwise, my job is to lift the team and make it as good as I can.

"That is probably the heaviest defeat I have had as a manager and for me there were a lot of things that I saw which I didn't like.

"I am angry but I have to channel that anger in the right way.

"I will make sure we put it right. And that started straight after the game in that dressing room. That is the key.

"The players are very much aware of the situation that we are in and I don't think they need a lot of telling.

"We need to make sure when we start on Monday morning that we work really hard to show this city that we have the fight for it.

"I think there are a lot of people who will look at us after tonight, especially on the TV and absorb that game, and think that we have a great chance of being relegated.

"We have to prove them wrong.

"I don't think the language barrier is so much of a problem as the lack of experience in certain scenarios.

"A lot of those players will never have been beaten 3-0 at home, never mind 6-0. I think that showed; we became ragged, some of our play was naive and disorganised."
