AlanPardew36One of the most difficult questions asked in any footballing board room – “When’s the best time to sack the manager?”.

I would suggest the Reading board are asking the question as we speak but unfortunately the Newcastle board aren’t.

How long do we leave it until the situation is beyond repair, is there any point in waiting until after the January window because that denies the new manager the ability to make his own moves during the transfer window, in an effort to save us from relegation a second time in four years.

I’m looking at Saturday being completely pivotal, if we don’t get all three points then in my opinion we should make the change because the next three games after that are very difficult indeed and the new manager can approach them in such a way any kind of result is a bonus.

The new manager then has the opportunity to tinker with the squad and make the changes he believes will guide us to safety during January and we move on from there.

I’m getting a bit sick of the manager suggesting we’re losing well, good performances are no good unless they bring points to the table. We went down playing rubbish three years ago and going down having played well this year will be no consolation whatsoever, believe me.

Timing is of the essence here, if we win on Saturday we have to give Pardew the opportunity to turn things round, if we don’t win on Saturday I’m all for the kneejerk reaction to kick Pardew into touch.

What do you think?

I think it would be an even bigger shock if we were to actually let the lad go.

Letting him go would come back to bite us in the arse, BIG TIME !!!


He shows so much promise, it would be a trevesty if we lost him !!!


The only problem is, as I see it, I don´t think "Cardew" (see what I did there ?) actually has the acumen or the tactical courage to help him progress !!!


At this stage of the season with nothing to play for, not even pride, judging by recent displays, we should be giving the likes of Woodman, Armstrong, and a couple of other bright young prospects the chance to shine and show some pride in the shirt !!!


I would rather see us lose after a passionate display than have to sit through another drab display, the likes of which we´ve seen too often this season !!!


Once upon a time we used to talk about having the "odd bad 45 minutes", nowadays all we have to look to is the odd good 45 minutes !!!


Hope is always the last thing to die !!!

send Woodman out on loan for a season, let Darlow and Elliot fight it out for reserve keeper

Reject them. Surely Mike knows that he could get more for him in the future. It is his strong point after all.
