Alan Pardew Career Win Record vs The Other 19 Premier League Managers

7 years ago

I was a bit tired of the differing groups of NUFC fans spouting out various statistics to back their argument. ‘We’ve only won 5 games since December’ and ‘Pardew is a muppet’, puppet etc. etc., or ‘Pardew got us to fifth’, ‘he was Manager of the Year’ and ‘first half of last season Pardew was very good’ etc. etc.

The managerial career, of course, is full of high and lows and to evaluate how good or bad a manager is, it is important and only fair to look at their complete record and not just a good or bad period.

So with this in mind I armed myself with the painstaking task to evaluate every present premiership managers’ career statistics to date and produce a table to show those results.

Position                                Manager                              Club                                       Career Win %

1                                              Jose Mourinho                  Chelsea                                 67.05

2                                              Louis Van Gaal                 Man U                                    61.33

3                                              Ronald Koeman                Southampton                         55.96

4                                              Arsene Wenger                 Arsenal                                   53.81

5                                              Manuel Pellegrini               Man C                                    50.42

6                                              Brendan Rodgers              Liverpool                                 45.28

7                                              Nigel Pearson                    Leicester City                          44.44

8                                              Gus Poyet                          Sunderland                             42.92

9                                              Alan Pardew                       NUFC                                     42.26

10                                           Sean Dyche                         Burnley                                   40.71

11                                           Harry Redknapp                  QPR                                        40.47

12                                           Neil Warnock                       C Palace                                 40.38

13                                           Paul Lambert                       Aston Villa                               40.29

14                                           Roberto Martinez                 Everton                                    40.06

15                                           Sam Allardyce                      WHU                                        39.71

16                                           Garry Monk                          Swansea City                           39.13

17                                           Mark Hughes                        Stoke City                                37.97

18                                           Steve Bruce                          Hull City                                   37.34

19                                           Mauricio Pochettino              Spurs                                       34.93

20                                           Alan Irvine                             WBA                                        20.00

So there you have it. From the abuse AP has received from a certain minority of the crowd, one would expect to see AP much lower in this table. Indeed a career win % of 42.26 shows he is a good manager. This despite the fact that twice he’s had his best player sold against his wishes at a vital time in the season.

Yes, results have to improve and improve quickly, if NUFC aren’t mid table by December then action will no doubt be needed and taken.

However, it appears MA will give him time to get the new signings to settle in and this coupled with a continuation of the effort and commitment the players showed against Hull, the results will surely improve.
