Alan Pardew says he knows what he is doing but does he…?

6 years ago

My first ever article is a brief one.

Don’t know if you could even call it an article to be honest. It’s just a rehash of the old grey haired numpty’s comments when he fluked the win at Citeh in the Cap One Cup. ‘Alan Pardew: Newcastle boss says:

“I know what I am doing”

Alan Pardew defended his position as Newcastle manager after their League Cup victory at Manchester City, telling supporters:

“I do know what I’m doing.”

‘Pardew, 53, has been the subject of protests from some fans after Newcastle’s poor start of the season.But the 2-0 win at Etihad Stadium secured a League Cup quarter-final place and followed Sunday’s Premier League victory at Tottenham. ‘

“This was a victory for our fans,” said Pardew.

“It is important for us that we just keep this momentum going.”

‘Newcastle sit 14th in the Premier League and face a trip to Tottenham in the League Cup last eight in the week beginning 15 December.

Pardew has guided Newcastle to fifth, 16th and 10th in his three full seasons at the club and has seen key players such as Andy Carroll and Yohan Cabaye leave for large transfer fees.’

Supporters have held up ‘’ banners during matches since early in the season. Pardew admitted earlier this month he felt the pressure but told the press,

“I do know what I’m doing. I think I’ve had most of the scalps as Newcastle manager, maybe except Arsenal, and I look forward to playing them.”

In the wake of yet another demoralising defeat I’d like to initiate a simple straw poll on The Mag;

In your opinion does Pardew know what he’s doing ? Yes or No ?
