Everything Falls Into Place For Pardew

8 years ago

You have to put what Pardew says into perspective.

I imagine him putting the following comment in front of all his interviews to gain perspective:-

‘OK, Ashley wants me out, so it’s important I don’t resign and thus he will have to sack me, and there’s my pension – obviously we won’t sign who I want so I’ll just get as much of a dig in by mentioning players I would like/they are chasing but missing out on – Bent, Gomis, Ince, Downing…

Plus now throw in a few I wanted to keep but were sold over my head – Enrique, Carroll (maybe Perch? ok Maybe not) and we can trundle on making do with the players we have.

I’ll get my sly digs in at Ashley by constantly mentioning that we can’t compete with mid-table sides any longer and that makes it look like I’m doing a good job even though we never score, only winning when Bosingwa is playing for the opposition….and just for a laugh, I’ll say ‘over the line’ a few more times….’

Now when I imagine that, everything he says falls into place….
