Alan Pardew asks for forgiveness

6 years ago

Alan Pardew achieved a number of things on Saturday at Wembley.

Even before the match kicked off he managed to achieve the feat of forcing a majority of Newcastle fans to want Manchester United to win!

Our pre-match poll found that 57% of Newcastle supporters would rather Man Utd won than Alan Pardew.

Then with only 12 minutes remaining of the then scoreless game, came the glorious moment.

Crystal Palace scored and Alan Pardew showed what an absolute arrogant clown he is to a worldwide audience – performing an embarrassing dance (watch it below) routine, with the Palace manager obviously thinking the FA Cup was in the bag.

Then the hilarious sight of a Man Utd equaliser only a couple of minutes later, Manchester United going on to win in extra time.

Alan Pardew has said ‘forgive me for my dance’ but no need for him to ask Newcastle fans to forgive him, as they are just happy that a lot more people will now be a little more understanding as to why the people of Tyneside were so happy to see the back of him.

Before the game, Pardew said he hoped that an FA Cup win could maybe help him get the England job in the future…maybe not.

Alan Pardew:

“I enjoyed that moment!

“In a Cup final as a manager it is difficult to enjoy moments. If you forgive me for my dance….it’s just because I enjoyed it.

“My players gave everything…everything – they deserved to win but the game is like that.

“We had a couple of decisions that went against us, big time but it was a great performance from both teams, great final.”
