Alan Pardew admits that his future is not in his own hands after Newcastle’s worst home defeat in nearly a century.

Saturday’s 6-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool was nothing short of an embarrasement for all connected to the club. Pardew signed an eight-year contract last September which is now becoming more of a worry for fans, just how much of a compensation package would Pardew get if we continue on the road which we’re going down?

It was a worrying display. Philippe Coutinho tore us apart while Cabaye looks absolutely exhausted and Tiote looks half the player he was last season.

Pardew is leaving his future in the hands of owner Mike Ashley, although some fans have already run out of patience.

Asked about his future after the defeat, Pardew told the press: “Well that’s out of my hands.

“Until I’m told otherwise, my job is to lift the team and make it as good as I can.”

Asked if he expected Ashley – who gave him an eight-year deal in September last year – to back him, he added: “I hope so, yes.

“That is probably the heaviest defeat I have had as a manager and for me there were a lot of things that I saw which I didn’t like.

“I am angry but I have to channel that anger in the right way. I will make sure we put it right. And that started straight after the game in that dressing room. That is the key.

“The players are very much aware of the situation that we are in and I don’t think they need a lot of telling.

“We need to make sure when we start on Monday morning that we work really hard to show this city that we have the fight for it.

“I think there are a lot of people who will look at us after tonight, especially on the TV and absorb that game, and think that we have a great chance of being relegated.

“We have to prove them wrong.”
