The question was - Is Alan Pardew the man you want as Newcastle United manager?
YES: 278 votes
WE COULD DO BETTER: 628 votes
We would like to thank all of you who voted.
He was described to us at NU-MAD by West Ham fans as: "a manager who makes an instant impact; but when he starts putting his OWN team together - that's when you will get problems.
"He is not very good at making signings.
"He doesn't buy a particular player to fit into a system like Sir Alex Ferguson did, be buys players and tries to fit them into the team without much thought as to any system at all.
"He has to justify his buying, playing individuals out of position just to fit them in. And at times it becomes a mess.
"We notice at Newcastle he has scouts abroad who suggest players, and he brings them in, but how many times has he seen that player play?
"He basically gets what he's given and tries to make them adapt.
"A good manager gets the players HE wants - and Pardew doesn't always have faith in his own judgement - so he lets others choose.
"And that is why Joe Kinnear has been brought in, because Mike Ashley knows now Pardew hasn't got a good eye for a player.
"He was the same at West Ham. We couldn't wait to get him out."
WE TELL IT AS IT IS - NO BULLSHIT!
