Alan Pardew – Always On The Ball

9 years ago

I get the feeling that Alan Pardew is a bit of a workaholic and never totally puts football and Newcastle United totally to one side.

On the club’s official website the manager has been talking with anticipation for the season ahead;

“I’ve got one last little trip with my family and once that ends then I will really focus on the job in hand.

I’ve had a really nice time and done a lovely couple of things in the summer.

It’s been good and I’ve had a nice rest, so if we had to start tomorrow, I would be ready.

We’ve still got a couple of weeks to go yet but I’m looking forward to it”.

Recent comments in the press where he has talked about having a break in France but ending up watching matches with the locals in bars is testimony to the fact that he sounds little different to the rest of us.

While in other interviews his knowledge of statistics at World Cup and Euros offer further proof that he never really switches off.

My belief is that while Graham Carr has played a key role in recruiting players, it is possibly Alan Pardew who should be getting the lion’s share of the credit for the signings we have made as he will have made the final decision once Ashley has given the green light to spend the money.

England and Italy now meet in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 and bet365 have got a fantastic free bet offer to add to the excitement.
