The West Brom fight-back saw Newcastle lose two points and the Mackems jump above us in the league ... and cost Mike Ashley £2.5m in prize money. Yesterday’s draw meant that United slipped three places in the table from ninth. Alan Pardew: “That’s the level we are at. “Of course it’s frustrating, there is nothing else to say. “We should have seen the game out and we should have won. “My priority now is to make sure the players are seen off properly with their fitness programs, that they are sorted for the summer. “We head into the summer looking for quality players to add to the group.” And after Pardew said (on Friday) his first signing of the summer was just days away, he has had a rethink. The former West Ham boss played down talk of any imminent new arrivals. Alan Pardew: “I don’t think anything will happen immediately. “I think players and their agents will be hanging on. “Most agents will be advising their players not to sign at the moment. “We will keep pitching and we will keep battling away."
