Pardew Accuses Newcastle Fans Of Mass Hysteria

7 years ago

With pressure mounting on both he and Mike Ashley, Alan Pardew has accused Newcastle fans of mass hysteria for their reaction to United’s current situation.

The Newcastle manager clearly trying to portray supporters as going over the top in terms of only a handful of games played so far this season

Surely though the fact is that fans have been too patient and this current situation has been a long long time coming.

The fans stoically enduring the entire second half of last season after the sale of Newcastle’s best player and no investment, meaning we were all sentenced to five months of absolute rubbish.

Any other set of fans would have almost certainly forced a managerial change but it was only that final home game against Cardiff when fans really gave Pardew and Ashley a hard time.

Fans gave the transfer activity their full support and hoped for the best, over 100,000 supporters (that is mass hysteria!) turned up in total for the first two home matches.

However, the fears of many of us have been realised and failure to spend beyond what was brought in on the likes of Debuchy and Cabaye, has left United seriously short on quality and quantity.

Over to Alan Pardew;

“This situation at the moment is almost like mass hysteria – to a degree.

“It has really gone to a level which makes it difficult for players to perform in and I’m hoping we can turn that around.

“Am I the best person to sort this out?

“I think so but I don’t think our fans agree.

“They (local paper) did a poll today and 98% didn’t want me, so I’m up a few percent.”
