Alan Pardew Misses Chance to Earn Respect Of Fans

8 years ago

What a surprise, I say, with a very heavy hint of sarcasm.

The man, basically, is a puppet fronting an onerous, greedy, and vindictive Owner and an absolute Buffoon of a Director of Football or presumably the title will now, officially be known, as the Director of F…all!

No wonder Pardew is on an 8 year contract given his hopeless tactics, formations, substitutions and set plays. The mouthpiece of a regime intent on claiming back the Fatman’s interest free loans beggars belief with his statements. Especially those referring to it being pointless pursuing striking options that were no better than already at the club.

Two points. Why then did the Buffoon spend so much time pursuing the Lyon striker? I think I counted 3 separate attempts to sign him. I guess the Buffoon just likes holidaying in France!

The second point, the strikers the Buffoon was after were worse than Shola Ameobi! Impossible. Now that I have mentioned Ameobi it was clear to all after he went off, substituted for the first time this season, that Newcastle played fast passing football with plenty of forward momentum and finally scored a league goal and could have had more. Will Pardew see this? Hardly.

Any manager with backbone would have resigned this morning, citing the reason of being badly betrayed by the lack of signings. He could also have probably claimed constructive dismissal but certainly would have, at last, earned the respect of the supporters.

He could have prefaced his resignation by stating the real reason for the lack of transfer activity was, as many fans know, due to there being no real interest in Cabaye, whose exhorbitant fee would, partly, have gone on buying another striker and another left sided midfield player. These being the minimum requirements.

Let us continue to support this club and the team but let us unite in protest, every week, against the villainous trio that head and run our once great club. If we do this I’m sure that eventually the Fatman will act and sack The Buffoon and Pardew before realising the game’s up and sells up at a realistic price.

However, one other point comes to mind. How much responsibility should Sir John Hall take given his extremely hasty sale to the first buyer, telling us that the Club was in good hands!!!!!!!
