Ashley's Chance To Dump Pardew!

Last updated : 19 May 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

In his usual 'cocky manner', he insists Mike Ashley wants him to stay at the club, while many fans question the owner's decision.

This was the chance to get rid of the dead wood and bring in a manager with European ambition, rather than stick with a "Yes Man" who kisses Ashley's arse.

The press claim it would take £10m to shift Pardew because of his eight-year contract ... but that is far from the truth.

The contract runs from September to September, and the most the club would have to pay is one years wages.

One insider claims Ashley could wait until September and review the situation.

Suggesting Pardew won't be getting much money in the summer transfer window.

Alan Pardew: "There's no uncertainty about my position.

"I expect to be manager 100 per cent. It was a good lunch.

"Mike just comes and generally has a chat, says hello to everyone and he thanked all the players for their efforts.

"We all know it has not been our greatest season but you cannot say we've not given 100 per cent.

"We have and therefore have a better scenario next year and we all have to pull together. That was basically his message.

"Like all clubs, we will be sitting down again, discussing plans for next year."
