Alan Pardew ‘It is not what you say it’s what you deliver’

6 years ago

Alan Pardew has claimed that words are meaningless and it is all about what ‘you deliver’ on the pitch.

The Newcastle manager speaking after his team have put together a run of four wins on the bounce.

Victories over Leicester, Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool have relieved the pressure on the United boss.

However, Pardew’s words do ironically back up why many supporters were right in calling into question his role, having ‘delivered’ only five Premier League wins in ten months before that edgy home win over Leicester.

Alan Pardew;

“My gut feeling was that this group had more to offer – I needed to bring that to the surface and get it out there.

“That is the only message you can give as manager – it is not about what you say it is about what you deliver.

“We have managed to deliver it in the last couple of weeks.”

The ridiculous media reaction since this run of four wins has seen incredible attacks by the press against Newcastle fans who had made clear their concerns about that shocking ten month run of ‘form’.

Journalist Patrick Barclay being particularly obnoxious when writing for a London audience, suggesting Newcastle fans should apologise to Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley for calling for a change of manager.

No manager at any other Premier League club would have survived that shocking ten month period and as Alan Pardew intimates, football is a results based industry.

While our manager may have a number of other annoying traits, the reality is that Newcastle fans, just like those of any other club, will only judge him on results, good and bad.
