It hardly seems possible that it’s only 10 months since I was writing an article trying to dissuade Alan Pardew from even thinking about taking the England manager’s job. Now the odds are falling faster than the leaves off the trees, that he could be the next manager to enter the sack race.
Yesterday on the website, the striking statistic was pointed out of Newcastle scoring all 5 league goals so far in the 2nd half, I’m sure the manager will look to remedy that today and try to win the match early on.
Alan Pardew occupies a quite unique place in English football history. Of the 20 Premier League managers who finished the 2011/12 season, Pardew is the only Englishman still to be managing at the same club.
