Shearer Backs Pardew

8 years ago

The fallout from Saturday’s disaster against Liverpool continues with Newcastle United the focus of attention for all the wrong reasons.

With three matches left to ensure safety, there has been calls from many fans for Alan Pardew to be sacked, but the manager has been getting support from various quarters.

This is what Alan Shearer has had to say in his column in The Sun;

“It has brought calls from many fans for a change of manager but I wouldn’t join that clamour.

I think Pardew has enough credit in the bank from last season to be afforded another chance but he’s under massive pressure.

If this trend continues 2 months into next season there will be even more calls for his head.”

I think that is a pretty fair assessment of where Pardew stands at the minute and history tells us that when Newcastle change a manager with no immediate replacement, rather than any improvement the immediate situation usually gets several degrees worse.
