Thursday night brought the shock news that Claudio Ranieri had been sacked and now Leicester fans have been reacting to Alan Pardew being named one of the hot favourites to replace the title winner.
Roberto Mancini was made favourite for the job by many bookmakers, with Alan Pardew rated second favourite by many.
The news hasn’t gone too well with supporters who watched their team win the Premier League only nine months ago.
Alan Pardew may well still have his mates in the press but when it comes to proper football fans, they very much appear to know the score now!
There might not be clear agreement on who Leicester fans want to be the next Manager but they definitely seem to know who they don’t want…
Leicester fans comment on Alan Pardew via their top message board FoxesTalk:
‘I’m absolutely dreading who we’ll come up with.
You watch it be some useless journeyman like Alan Pardew.’
‘I think it was the right decision but if we get Pardew or Hodgson then I’ll struggle to come up for games.’
‘If it’s Pardew I’ll stop following football.’
‘Best be a 3 month contract if it does end up a Hodgson/Pardew type.’
‘I reckon it will be Frank De Boer. I would be happy with Rowett though. The dream is Wagner though.’
‘Move heaven and earth to get Eddie Howe.’
‘Can you all stop saying Pardew.
It’s making me feel ill.’
‘I’d like David Wagner. Seems to be doing a good job at an unfashionable club.’
‘Absolute fraud that man.’
‘Gus Hiddink for me
No Pearson or Pardew for gods sake.’
‘Dear Alan Pardew,
Please stay away from our club.’
‘If it’s pardew then I’m out…I’d rather go back to league one.’
‘I just know that I will wake at 0300 tomorrow with a sheen of sweat on my brow and the ghostly figures of Tim Sherwood, Roy Hodgson and Alan Pardew still fresh in my consciousness.’
‘NOT Pardew / Giggs / Keane for the love of god!!’
‘We’re never going to get one of these big managers in. We’re awful, anyone with a brain cell can see that. Imagine risking your reputation on 13 games with us, you’d have to be a psychopath.
Rowett, Pearson, Pardew are the sorts we’ll be linked with.’
‘I really want a coach who tries to play a decent style of football, I think we have some very good players that just need guidance, Rafa Benitez would be my first choice.’
‘We definitely need someone with Premier League experience though (not Pardew!), Hiddink or Mancini please.’
‘My list.. but you know we will end up with Pardew.’
‘We need to appoint someone until the end of the season to get us out of this scrap. Someone with Premier League experience, who understands the relegation fight (someone who isn’t Pardew).’
‘I’ve got a horrible feeling it’s going to be Pardew.
I feel sick just thinking about the prospect.’
