Alan Pardew ‘One Week We Are Geniuses and The Next We Haven’t Got A Clue’

8 years ago

The world according to Alan Pardew; it just gets better and better.

In the lead up to this afternoon’s match at St.James’ Park, the Newcastle manager was asked about the pressure a manager like David Moyes is under, having taken over from the record breaking Alex Ferguson.

In replying, Alan Pardew grouped himself with the likes of David Moyes and declared that “…one week we are geniuses and the next we haven’t got a clue”.

I’ll leave you all to make your own individual minds up as to whether you currently think the Newcastle boss is a ‘genius’, or hasn’t ‘got a clue’.

Alan Pardew;

“There is a lack of respect for the manager and his abilities because it is a very difficult job.

“The nature of it is that one week we are geniuses and the next we haven’t got a clue.

“Of course it is more than that, there is a competence about what we do and the pressure on that result makes it very difficult.”

If you are having a flutter on the Grand National to take your mind off the match, make sure you take advantage of BetVictor’s excellent offer of paying out on the first six places if you back each way.
