Pardew Is Racking Up More Unwanted Records!
Back-to-back defeats against Sunderland for the first time since 1980. Another record Alan Pardew has on his CV.
Normally, of course, people do not punch horses. When a football fan does, a logical assumption is that it would be the most embarrassing moment of his club's season.
But that wasn't the case.
Perhaps it was the 3-0 loss to Sunderland, our heaviest top-flight derby defeat since 1966.
To me it was the 6-0 thrashing by Liverpool, statistically our worst result at home for 87 years. The worst Newcastle performance I have EVER seen, and I made my first visit to St James' Park back in 1967.
I made my mind up on April 27th 2013 (Newcastle 0 Liverpool 6) that Alan Pardew was the WORST Newcastle manager I had ever seen at the club, even worse than Dinnis, McGarry, Lee and yes ... even Joe Kinnear ... although that was a very close call.
He hasn't got a clue about tactics and dead-ball kicks; he has this weird belief that everything French is in fashion; and his Mike Ashley arse-kissing ... well, the less said the better.
So many Pardew quotes defy belief.
There was the one last season: "We need two games a week because I can only pick 11 players." Only to backtrack seven days later: "European games are killing our season, and Europe is well down my list of priorities, far too many games."
We haven't scored from a corner in TWO YEARS and last month Pardew said: "We don't have tall strikers and that is a problem with corner kicks, but perhaps we should work on them."
Suggesting they don't!
Man Utd scored from 17 corners last season, and are Rooney and Van Persie tall? No ... they just WORK on corners!
Then Pardew said after Benfica knocked us out of Europe: "Thank God we don't have Europe next season!", then at the start of this campaign: "I can see us pushing for Europe this season."
And now he refuses to talk to the Chronicle and the Journal.
It seems the last throws of a desperate man.
