Ask Pardew - Money Or No Money?
Published : 23 May 2012 02:01:25
Alan Pardew picked up two managerial awards this season because he achieved European qualification on very little money.
Money or no money? I think we ALL know what he would rather have!
He's ambitious; wants to go to the top; but this season he will expect a lot more from Mike Ashley's wallet.
Pardew has finally made his mark in the Premiership and there will be interested parties ... you can bet your bottom dollar.
It's now up to Ashley to show the same ambition.
“That was what we were up against – the spending power they have got.
“It was a great achievement from everybody at the club. We want to do it again next year – it’s very important to have those targets.
“It’s very important we have that togetherness.
“When you don’t have a group of players who you’ve paid huge transfer fees for, you have to have different types of qualities.
“We’ve got those qualities, but we can’t be complacent, and the manager won’t allow us to be complacent.”
