Fans have expressed their outrage as Newcastle United’s manager, Alan Pardew, has survived the sack although he has the worst record of the last 28 premier league managers who have been given the boot. The Geordie fans have become disheartened after Newcastle lost their sixth consecutive game against Arsenal this week.
Pardew, who has a six year contact with the club, is in survival mode with his current form being worse than every sacked premier league boss since the start of 2010/11 season. The Magpies’ chief is reassuring fans that a top ten finish will mark a good finish at St James’ Park. He may think he’s got it all figured out but he can’t swerve the fact that the nine top ten gaffers to be sacked this season all had a better shape team and a better point’s ratio to our home team.
Pardew’s record is now at an embarrassing 37.5%, which is worse than previous sacked bosses including Kenny Dalglish, Glenn Roeder and Graeme Souness. Pardew will have to have a sit down with Newcastle owner, Mike Ashley, to discuss his future and his behaviour towards the team. During this season alone, he has fallen out with key NUFC players, including Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Sylvain Marveaux.
The Toon manager was also a naughty boy back in March after he head butted Hull player, David Meyler, from which he earned himself a seven game ban.
If Alan doesn’t buck his ideas up soon, it will be him that has to be shown the red card.
