Alan Pardew has claimed that he gets no satisfaction from the fact that Crystal Palace currently stand above Newcastle in the table.

I think I believe what he had to say in his press conferences whilst he was at St. James’ Park more than that one.

Pardew has also stated that his record at Newcastle speaks for itself, something we can all agree on!

“I think my record at Newcastle speaks for itself…

“I was manager of the year there just three or four years ago so I don’t need to talk about that.”

No satisfaction…:

“It gives me no satisfaction, and I mean that with all of my heart, that we (Palace) are above them.

“I can understand why some of the media would think that because of the way I left the football club, but the fact is that results we have had here have been terrific.”

With Palace facing a tricky home match against Manchester City on Monday and Newcastle up against the cluless mackems today, this is a golden chance to ensure that on Monday night Alan Pardew can say he gets no satifaction from  the fact that Palace are below Newcastle….

I just hope somebody tells John Carver and his players that today at 3.59pm this afternoon.
