Chris Hughton v Alan Pardew – What The Stats Say
Sad to see Norwich getting rid of Chris Hughton, all a bit strange with only five matches left and five points above the drop.
The Canaries haven’t had the best of times and apart from the timing you maybe can understand them bowing to fan pressure, but what about if you compare Pardew’s stats to Chris Hughton’s?
In the last fifteen Premier League matches, Hughton’s Norwich picked up a dismal thirteen points, the same number as Alan Pardew at Newcastle.
In their fifteen matches Norwich managed to lose eight, while Newcastle have lost ten in the same period.
When it comes to goals, Norwich have scored a worrying ten and conceded twenty one.
On the other hand Newcastle have scored only nine and conceded a whopping twenty eight in the fifteen games.
Norwich have sacked their manager after this disappointing run but the big question is what will happen to Pardew after an even worse second half of the season?
Both clubs have been showing relegation form and will results ever dictate what Mike Ashley does with Alan Pardew?
