Alan McInally On Pardew ‘Just Sack Me, Just Get Me Out Of Here’
I couldn’t get to the match yesterday and was watching the Sky Sports coverage, never have I seen a pundit so full on as Alan McInally was about the performance of Newcastle United at Southampton.
Certainly when it isn’t the team that they follow.
I thought it was well worth sharing what he had said, so I watched his full on verdict again and you can read it below.

While Ashley and Pardew are clearly at the heart of all the problems at our beloved club, you are really deluded if you don’t think the seriousness of the situation also encompasses the actual ability of the bargain priced players assembled.
“Alan Pardew will be punch drunk after that.
“Riviere up front…Cabella…Janmaat …Gouffran….Anita….middle of the park, the two centre-halves; bang average!
“You always think they are going to be better Newcastle…and they haven’t been.
“Alan’s been banging his head and I know about Mike Ashley, the fans want him out.
“The way they played today, that’s relegation candidates – big time.
“Seemed to be no real urgency.
“I’m talking about fight within a football team, I’m talking about personalities who say ‘come on’ and they brought on Cheick Tiote and he has got plenty more about him, but he’s not going to be enough to keep Newcastle in the Premier League.
“Symptomatic of the whole game, three nil down and Daryl Janmaat goes out to Schneiderlin and he (Janmaat) turns his back on him.
“As though ‘I don’t want to get hurt here!’, I know they’re probably down and out, beaten, know they are not going to get three points, know they are going to get stick, already the Newcastle fans are screaming at them…but it is not the way to defend.
“If you defend like that you concede goals, simple as that.
“I saw a picture of him (Alan Pardew) just briefly and it was just as though…you know, that kind of ‘Just sack me, just get me out of here, cos what I’m seeing in front of me is just no good.
“As poor as I have ever seen a Newcastle team.”
