Be A Man Pardew - Walk Now!

Last updated : 12 February 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

Joe Kinnear apart, I cannot remember a more deluded Newcastle manager than Alan Pardew.

And why do I say this?

Let's look at his record of late ...

1) This morning he said the team was still suffering from their exploits in Europe LAST season - even though the club made £14m from reaching the quarter finals (money that was never put back into team building) - and that campaign finished April 11th 2013! WTF?

2) He said "Davide Santon is the new Gary Neville, an unsung hero, although he doesn't look particularly good to the naked eye." WTF?

3) He said: "Every player I have bought has improved under my management." WTF

Well let's go into that in detail. What about Papiss Cisse, who scored 12 goals in his first 13 games for Newcastle United. Is HE a better player now?

What about Gabriel Obertan? If he has improved to the shit level he is now, he must have been the worst player ever to put on a Man Utd shirt ... so WHY BUY HIM?

Sylvain Marveaux cannot wait to get away, and that was when he first arrived!

Mehdi Abeid, Romain Amalfitano, Gaël Bigirimana, Kevin Mbabu, Olivier Kemen ... any future for any of them?

What about the players he inherited?

Steven Taylor was tipped to be the next Toon player to be made a full England international. I have NEVER seen him play as bad as he is recently

Hatem Ben Arfa - the world beater who could not give a flying f*** against Spurs tonight. A shadow of himself.

4) Take a look at this current form:-

Barclays Premier League

Newcastle 0 Spurs 4
Chelsea 3 Newcastle 0
Newcastle 0 Sunderland 3
Norwich 0 Newcastle 0
West Ham 1 Newcastle 3
Newcastle 0 Manchester City 2
West Brom 1 Newcastle 0
Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1

FA Cup

Newcastle 1 Cardiff City 2

We have only scored in one of the last EIGHT Premier League games; with two LOAN strikers, and a 16-year old striker sat on the bench.

And Pardew said about his 150 games at Newcastle this morning: "I am very proud of my record at Newcastle"

OK, let's look at that record:-

5) Pardew's record at St James' Park - and the guy who was in the job before him:-

Pardew lost 57; Hughton 17.

Alan Pardew
Games: 150
Won: 57
Drawn: 36
Lost: 57

Chris Hughton
Games: 76
Won: 40
Drawn: 19
Lost: 17

6) The records Pardew has broken:-

Newcastle 0 Liverpool 6 - the worst home defeat since before WWII.

Three defeats to the Mackems - worst record since the 1960s.

Five consecutive home defeats (and counting) - the worst for Newcastle in the Premier League era.

Spurs' first win at St James' Park in ten years!
