Alan Pardew said that he was ‘…looking forward to having some impact’ on his return to the Newcastle dressing room at St.Mary’s today.

Well he certainly appears to have had an impact but maybe not quite the one that he was selling us.

alan pardewBefore the match Pardew said;

“I’m looking forward to having some impact in there.

“If you take a personality out of that dressing room when you have a small team, it is going to have an effect.”

Well, Pardew was in the dressing room before the match and Newcastle were absolutely appalling in that opening forty five minutes.

However, at least on this occasion at least we had the reassurance of Alan Pardew in that dressing room at half-time to change things and he certainly managed that – Newcastle came out for the second half and were even worse!

Well done Mr Personality!
