Alan Pardew has come out with some strange comments following our 2-1 win against QPR which has ensured our Premier League status.

Hatem Ben Arfa’s penalty and a second from Yoan Gouffran ten minutes before the break proved to be enough to get all three points.

Pardew has claimed that he does not care if we lose 4-0 to Arsenal next week – only that the fans enjoy themselves. Is he real? Why would we enjoy a defeat? We are Newcastle United and we should be crossing that line every week looking to win football matches to the best of our ability, not rolling over and accepting defeat because we are safe from relegation.

For a man who already has the fans on his back, where is his professionalism?  Sorry Pards, but it’s time to go!

“I’m very pleased. It was a very important game for this football club. Particularly this year with the extra finance of staying in the Premier League,” Pardew told the press after the match.

“I thought the first 10 minutes we were almost playing with a noose around our neck we were so tense and tight and it took a decision by the referee.

“I don’t really care if Arsenal win 4-0 [next weekend], If I’m honest, I’m sure Spurs will – but I only care that our fans enjoy themselves.”

Pardew once again hit out at suggestions over the last month that his squad had been divided within the dressing room and was pleased with the spirit shown by his players.

“The accusations have been so ridiculous,” he added.

“You don’t get a draw at West Brom and West Ham and a win here today if you’ve got rifts going on.

“Their penalty looked a bit dubious to me and I thought ours looked dubious but once that went in I thought we settled down on a difficult pitch and played quite well.

“But we showed a real determination and resilience today to get the job done, for not just this club but for the north east.

“It’s massive for north-east football that we are a Premier League club so I’m absolutely delighted for our fans and players.”

    I totally agree he has to go now. I had enough of him n especially the players had enough of him. As they have lost respect for him, time for new blood to the job on. Some one who will able to unlock the full potential of the team. Like- Solskjaer, Blanc and Poyet!!!!!

    Arsenal don't only play us next week, they also play another club which we would have enjoyed to see beaten 4-0 if we hadn't secured this result against QPR. Doesn't that make more sense?!

    We will never achieve anything if we keep dropping managers every other season….look at Man utd with fergie , he was 1 game away from the sack, the rest is history, knee jerk reactions are no good we need to think long term, you loved him last season, we need continuity, it is very short sighted to call for Pardews head..We must back him.

        I'm pretty sure Ferguson got the job at OT because of his achievements within the game. They included

    Pardew is a complete Tosser! The fans care if we lose 4 bastard 0 at home! Is this bloke forgetting its £42 a ticket to a cat A match at ST. James Park! We have already been humiliated at home to sunderland and Liverpool. Time to go Pardew… Do yourself a favour and resign! Tosser!!!!

    Pardew has to go simple as that.. as a Newcastle fan of 30 years and a regular im shocked he has said that what chance have we got with him in charge….and to be honest I would much rather spurs got in champs lge than wenger

    Pardew better care, because he could very well end up at the pearly gates of the jobcentre if he doesn't watch his step!!!

    I have to say I am AMAZED at his comments, if infact he did make them. Newcastle have endured a torrid season where the team has fallen WAY below expectations, and instead of Pardew saying lets give the fans, who have stuck by us, and sang their hearts out all season, a good send off (and something to look forward to, for next season), he comes out with this garbage!!! NUFC fans might aswell stay at home next week if that's the attitude the manager has.

    How are the players supposed to respect a man that doesn't appear to respect himself, the fans or the club??? Imagine Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Sir Bobby Robson or ANY OTHER MANAGER WORTH THEIR SALT COMING OUT, PUBLICALLY, AND SAYING THAT!!!

    Even if he thought it, to come out and sat it is beyond contemptible and puts not only the integrity of the EPL of the EPL in to question, but the club too!

    Spurs deserve better, and Nwecastle do too!!!!

    I am obviously arsenal thru and thru but it’s crap like this that seperates class managers from the go thru ones. Can’t believe a commentor up there compared him to fergie! Don’t think fergie even in the most relieved of time has ever uttered such b/s. Good manager not great. Stick with him coz u lot are a good club NOT great!

  8. Ainger

    Total disgrace! If he did say those comments he should be sacked now,he’s just turned a team who narrowly missed Champions league last season into a relegation battling side then says he doesn’t care if they lose 4-0 at home,hope if they do lose 4-0 he’s refunding all the home fans out of he’s own pocket,Disgrace, sack him now!!

    Lets see if he gets the players up next weekend to give a good performance for the fans? As far as i am concerned i would think any clubs fans would like their team to win their final home match no matter what the situation. Considering he told Wenger once,someone he has fallen out with on more than one occasion since, 'My Players',West ham at the time, 'would give 100% out of respect to the game of football'. When Spurs had the lasagne poisioning problem. To not now give Spurs the same respect is doing the name of Newcastle United a diservice.
