The Toon boss ordered boards to be put up around United’s main training pitch ... because he fears a "spy is letting others know our secrets".
What I cannot understand is why a Newcastle fan would do that.
Could it be a Mackem?
Alan Pardew: “There is too much information going out of this training ground to the opposition and I am not going to have it any more.
“I don’t think I should be boarding up the training ground around my main pitch, which I have had to do.
“People are coming and looking through the fence and putting my team on the internet and giving it to the press.
"Therefore, what I have stopped is the real fans coming to get a view of us.
“That how I have to be, I am afraid.”
