Fed up ADO Den Haag fans invade training to show Alan Pardew what to do

2 years ago

Alan Pardew has spent 20 months waiting  for another Premier League job.

Then amazingly getting another chance in the top tier with West Brom, sacked after only one win in 19 Premier League games with a run of eight defeats in a row at the end of that run, bringing the sack in April 2018.

Waiting 20 months for another PL post, Alan Pardew eventually admitted defeat.

The former Newcastle manager taking over at ADO Den Haag on 24 December 2019.

The dutch club facing a relegation battle from the top tier and looking to Alan Pardew to guide them to safety…

His first game was against RKC Waalwijk who were/are rock bottom, winning 2-0.

However, it has been desperate since then, only two points and three heavy defeats, conceding three goals and four goals (twice).

Only 10 games to go and ADO Den Haag are six points off fourth bottom and have a big match on Saturday at home to Heracles.

The ADO Den Haag fans decided enough was enough and time for desperate action ahead of the game…

Yes, a group of fans invaded the training pitch and showed Alan Pardew what he should be doing, complete with flipboard and tactics for the players.

No doubt, if ADO Den Haag end up winning this Saturday, Pardew will be claiming that inviting these ‘consultants’ along, had actually been his idea!

Rumour has it that Steve Bruce is now keeping a close eye on events at the Dutch club and ask if any Newcastle fans have any suggestions…
