After just over four years Alan Pardew has left us – but what are the memories, good and bad?
As usual at Newcastle United under Mike Ashley, I’m relieved one crisis (Pardew’s failing management) has come to an end but I’m already dreading what comes next (his replacement and chaotic set-up).
However, I thought I would look back through the fixtures and pick out the matches that stand out, the positive and the not so positive.
