What Would Alan Pardew Do With £100m?

What would Alan Pardew do with £100m?

Just before you answer that, have a look at this roll of honour from the Newcastle United manager.

Under Pardew the Magpies have:

*Lost six Prem games in a row for the first time ever.

*Lost the last six games with an aggregate score of 17-1.

*Suffered the worst run of form since 1987, back in the days of Willie McFaul.

*Failed to score in 39% of home games.

*Failed to score in 42.5% of all games.

*Failed to score in 77% of games without borrowed striker Loic Remy.

*Lost seven of the last 13 games by three goals or more.

*On the brink of equalling the record amount of Prem defeats in one season (19 last season)

*Pardew’s overall winning record at Newcastle has now slumped to 37.5% – worse than previous sacked Toon bosses like Kenny Dalglish, Glenn Roeder, Bobby Robson and Graeme Souness.

*Pardew has fallen out with quality players such as Sylvain Marveaux and Hatem Ben Arfa this season.

He has a squad full of talent yet complains he needs funds to bring in players.

Pardew couldn’t build a team with £100m. Best believe that.
