Alan Pardew Challenges Fans To Stop Protests If Newcastle Take The Lead
Alan Pardew faces a day of reckoning, and he has claimed that the worst case scenario is if Newcastle take the lead, but the protests still continue then put the win in jeopardy as he sees it.
Obviously the Newcastle boss is in a desperate position and having blamed supporters at least in part for the defeat at Southampton, he sees few negatives in at least gambling United take the lead and challenging all fans to then get behind the team, however they approach the Hull match initially.
Pardew also talked about his own personal security at the pre-match press conference, a question that surely looks planted to try and portray the protests as having a potentially violent edge, even though the message from the planned protests has always been for them to be peaceful.
Two questions below and the answers Alan Pardew gave;
Message For Supporters?
“There is nothing I can do to stop them protesting and I don’t intend to.
“All I do hope is that they give the team a chance to win the game. That the protests come quickly and go as quickly.
“Hopefully we take the lead and see the game out, I think the worst scenario would be that we are still protesting when we are winning and it puts the win in jeopardy – that would be unwelcome.”
Extra security planned around yourself in light of planned protests?
“Well I think it is foolish to just ignore that and think everything will be ok.
“So I’m sure that the club will have looked into that and not really got involved in that myself.”
