Who Will Pardew Ban Next?

Pardew quickly turned to his communications chief Wendy Taylor, who batted the question away saying: “No questions from NCJ sorry”.

 Another banned title - the Daily Telegraph - asked the same question.

After the press conference leading national writer Henry Winter tweeted: “Pathetic".

Pardew knows fine well who each journalist is.

Shortly after being appointed he asked his press office to compile a dossier of each journalist so he could put names to faces.

The Premier League try to encourage mixed zones but they can do little to stop press bans.

After the 2-2 draw with Hull City Pardew said: “I am going to pick out Robbie Savage this week” after the ex-Welsh international and BBC pundit said he sounded like a broken man.

He has also taken issue with things Chronicle columnist Rob Lee and Journal columnist Don Hutchison have said in the past.

Pardew was offended by talk he was simply standing by waiting for compensation - and let's be realistic here - he is!

Newcastle are struggling because the manager cannot figure out a game plan to win Premier League matches and opposing bosses are easily working out how to turn the Magpies over.

Pardew has had more than enough time - FOUR YEARS - to make this team his own.

We are worse off now than when he first walked through the door.
