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