10 Charges Levelled At Alan Pardew

9 years ago

How can any manager survive what Alan Pardew has been responsible for over the past few years? Only a manager who has an owner completely disinterested in the actual team, could possibly survive such disgrace.

Let’s look at what is a list of sackable offences for any Newcastle Manager:

Losing at home to the mackems two season in a row 3-0, and three games in a row in total for the first time since 1924.

Losing 6 league games in a row.

Never reaching past the 4th round of the FA Cup in 4 attempts and counting, including 3 third round knockouts to lower league opposition.

Being charged by the FA for headbutting an opposition player (as well as two other charges for pushing a linesman and abusing a fellow manager to add to this).

Finishing 5th from bottom with a team aiming for Champions League qualification.

Playing negative, defensive, game choking tactics.

Being unable to score from a corner for two years. Two years with no goal from a corner. Just think about that. It seems almost impossible.

Holding the record for most games without scoring in our history. Newcastle have also failed to score in 66% of their games this calendar year of 2014, which is easily the lowest of any of the 92 clubs.

Pardew has a record of failing to win at home for over 50% of his games. Over 50%!! Scary.

You can also add to this constant lies, excuses and nonsense consistently issued to the fans via the press for 4 very long years.

Looking at the above sackable offences we have had managers be sacked for far less in the Premier League, with most actually deserved.

Ruud Gullit got beat at home to the mackems just once and throw in the fact the club’s poor season beforehand with Shearer being made a scapegoat, he got the chop. Pardew has lost two of these fixtures back to back and has already got rid of Ben Arfa as his scapegoat, who would bet against another mackem defeat this season?

Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness finished 13th and 14th respectively in their first full seasons, Pardew finishing 5th blows them away. However, finishing 16th afterwards is the worst finish any manager has had in the Premier League, disregarding our joke relegation season.

The football Pardew chooses to play also does not go down well at our football club either. To have a scouting team bring in some the most talented players we have seen in recent times at this football club, to be strangled by a naive negative manager, is a depressing sight to say the least.

Sam Allardyce got the sack for attempting this non-football philosophy but at least he didn’t have players like Ben Arfa and Cabaye at his disposal. Pardew has consistently wasted all of our scouting network’s monumental efforts which is perhaps the biggest reason why he deserves to be sacked. To be a poor team is one thing, but to be one with class players in the squad is unacceptable. For ANY team.

The manager who is killing our club year after year, and holding it back massively, cannot be removed from his position. This is a cancer that cannot be cured.

The only way to get this club to reach its true potential is to remove the contamination that has created and kept this cancer rooted in the heart of our club.

Mike Ashley needs to go, which will form a domino effect to remove Alan Pardew, hopefully never having his like for a long while to come.
