Pardew Bottles Fan Showdown!

Last updated : 16 May 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Radio Newcastle set the date and time for this Friday (19th May) with the manager taking questions from 7pm until 8pm.

However the radio programme has announced that the event has been cancelled, and they won't give a reason why.

Pardew as taken severe stick from supporters in recent weeks for making some bizarre comments about poor performances against the Mackems and Liverpool, and some suggest he is shell-shocked by the ferocity.

The cancellation will no doubt have supporters furious because the ex-West Ham boss was lined up for a grilling.


Alan Pardew is adamant staying in the Premier League was an achievement in itself for Newcastle United - despite pre-season hopes of a top-four spot.

Alan Pardew:“Our season has been difficult, but we’ve come through it.

“And I don’t care what anybody says, getting over the line with some of the misfortune we’ve had is an achievement.

“We’ve had three cruciate injuries (Ryan Taylor twice and Haris Vuckic) – no other club has had that.

“We missed key players at QPR – (Moussa) Sissoko, Shola Ameobi, Tim Krul and Davide Santon.

“All year we’ve had that, but we still got over the line. That’s the main thing.”


d1) Only Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal get bigger attendances than NUFC.

2) We are officially in the 'Top 30 Richest Clubs In Europe' list.

3) Are NUFC the ONLY team to have injuries this season? (The Mackems have had only one striker to call on for almost two months, and Wigan had nine first team players out in February.)

4) Has progressing to the Europa League final made it a 'horror' season for Chelsea?

5) How many other clubs bought FIVE players in the January transfer window?

6) Why has this horror season been everyone's fault ... other than Alan Pardew's?
