The White Smoke Has Been Spotted – Alan Pardew Prepares To Speak On Transfer Window

8 years ago

Yesterday we asked the following question;

What Is The First Thing Alan Pardew Will Say When Transfer Window Closes?

A bit like waiting for the white smoke to announce a new Pope, we are all left waiting to see what Alan Pardew will say when he steps out into the sunlight once again.

The (black humour) options we gave you to vote on were as follows, with percentage of votes afterwards;

You Wouldn’t Believe How Hard It Is To Get A Player Over The Line These Days 58%

I Would Like To Thank Mike For Not Selling Our Entire Team 14%

How Can You Expect Us To Compete With Norwich, Palace, Southampton, Mackems, Hull….. 13%

Joe Has Been A Massive Help This Summer 12%

Let Me Introduce Our Five Transfer Deadline Day Signings 3%

When we do hear the manager I’m guessing he could well mention all of the above apart from the fifth option, though I wouldn’t put it past him to claim the five signed in January are now ‘Like New Signings’.

My guess at Pardew’s first utterances could be,

‘I’d like to thank Mike and Joe for all their hard work in keeping this group of players together and as we know, very hard to get a player over the line these days, especially when you are competing with the big boys like Norwich, Palace and the Mackems.’

The End.
