"Since taking charge at Alan Pardew has won 8 of 12 games: pretty much Champions League form."
Crystal Palace paid more for Alan Pardew than Real Madrid paid for two time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti.
The test of three matches in six days has pushed players and managers to the limit over the festive period but tired legs have not stopped some from impressing. Chelsea's humbling at Tottenham followed Manchester City's late New Year's Day win over Sunderland, results which leave the pair equal on points and goal difference to set up a mouth- watering title race in 2015. Elsewhere, Southampton have rediscovered form which builds hope of Champions League qualification but West Brom - with Tony Pulis now in charge - frustrated another side chasing the top four, earning a point at West Ham. Crystal Palace will also see change with Alan Pardew set to take the hot seat and they warmed up for his arrival with a draw at Aston Villa, and what next for Everton? Beaten again.

END OF THE DISCUSSION: Ameobi leaves Newcastle after 14 years Shola Ameobi will bring an end to 14 years of playing at Newcastle this summer after he was not offered a new contract. Loan pair Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong will also return to their respective parent clubs Queens Park Rangers and Borussia Monchengladbach. It means the Toon Army are left with only one recognised senior striker, Papiss Cisse, who is out with a knee injury and could miss the start of next season. Ameobi came through the ranks on Tyneside before making his debut in September 2000. However, he struggled to ever hold down a regular spot at St James' Park, making 397 appearances and scoring 79 goals in total. Seven of those came against Sunderland in Tyne-Wear derby fixtures while the 32-year-old also famously scored in the Champions League against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in December 2002. Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew said: "I have to make a special mention of Shola Ameobi, who has been an incredible servant to Newcastle Un ...

Arsene Wenger has refused to talk about a move for Loic Remy in the build-up to Newcastle United’s clash with Arsenal on Monday night (8pm). The Gunners chief is interested in taking Remy to the Emirates Stadium next season and is hoping the lure of Champions League football can tempt him to quit Queens Park Rangers and spearhead his attack. Alan Pardew spoke positively about his chances of holding on to Remy last week, but the French international is ambitious and eager to play on the big stage in Europe. The Chronicle understands that the Gunners have expressed an interest in Remy before and need no introduction to the on-loan Toon striker’s representatives. Wenger though is a big admirer of the ex-Marseille star, and said: “He is a good striker. “But we are focused on the end of the season, not on strikers.” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger Remy has also been linked with Atletico Madrid who have earmarked him as a replacement for Diego Costa with the La Liga ace linked with a move to Chelsea. Ev ...
Arsenal boss set to move for Remy after expressing admiration for Newcastle striker Arsene Wenger has expressed his admiration for Loic Remy, paving the way for a concerted effort to sign the Newcastle United loan striker in the summer. Remy's loan deal at St James' Park expires at the end of the season, and while Alan Pardew has already confirmed he will attempt to hold on to the France international permanently, the Magpies boss faces intense competition from a number of European sides. Juventus are the latest club to be linked with Remy, who is currently contracted to QPR, and while Newcastle officials will hope the experiences of the last nine months will count for something when they sit down to talk to the 27-year-old and his representatives, the Serie A side are one of a number of interested parties who can offer Champions League football next season. Arsenal are not guaranteed to be in that position yet, but the Gunners will finish in the top four if they win their remaining three Premier League g ...
track a Forster return Newcastle United are considering a shock bid to lure Celtic No 1 Fraser Forster back to St James’ Park The Magpies are looking at possible summer replacements for wantaway keeper Tim Krul. Krul, who had a loan spell at Falkirk in 2007/08, has lost his place with the Dutch national team and feels he needs to leave Newcastle to regain it. That would put boss Alan Pardew in the market for a new shotstopper, and reports from Tyneside claim England cap Forster and PSV’s Jeroen Zoet are among his main targets. Forster came through the Newcastle ranks before Pardew loaned him out to Stockport, Bristol Rovers, Norwich and then Celtic. The Scottish champions finally bought him for £2.2million in 2012. Newcastle, however, would have to fork out substantially more to get Forster back as Celtic would be looking for at least three times that initial investment. The 26-year-old has excelled at Parkhead, especially in the Champions League, and that form has helped push him into the England se ...

Alan Pardew : Wenger deserves to win the Champions League
Pardew backs Wenger for Champions League triumph Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew reveals that he would like to see Arsene Wenger win the Champions League with Arsenal, the Mirror reports. Despite the two coaches being involved in a touchline argument in 2006, the Magpies boss has announced his praise for the Frenchman, stating how seeing him lifting the Champions League trophy would be an excellent reward for his contributions to football. Challenges The Gunners will have to defeat current champions Bayern Munich in the round of sixteen this February if they want any chance of being victorious this season; the same fixture which they lost on away goals last term. However, the ex- West Ham manager thinks that Wenger deserves some European success. He said, as reported by the paper: “I really hope he wins the Champions League this season. I think he deserves it for the career he’s had.” Loyalties He also respects the former Monaco coach for the 17 years he has served at the North London club. “ ...
A year that began with awkward questions has ended with an incredible and highly improbable one. Six points off the top on Saturday night, matching the form of the Continent’s heavyweights and very much on the march: are Newcastle United involved in the Premier League title conversation? Before the charges of delusion are prepared, that very poser was put to Alan Pardew by an independent, non-North East voice at Selhurst Park in the hour after United’s latest impressive away day display. He wanted none of it, of course, but the longer this formidable run snakes into the winter months the harder it will be to regard Newcastle as an anomaly in the top six. The weekend brought another 90 minutes where Newcastle looked like they belonged. The title? Let’s be honest, even in the festive party season no one is getting that tipsy on United’s success. This is not a squad built to challenge for those kind of honours. But the Champions League? With a bit of managerial sorcery, good fortune and the reliable ...

Alan Pardew has warned his old adversary Arsene Wenger that he is under “enormous pressure” in Sunday’s clash with Arsenal at St James’ Park. The Newcastle United boss has history with the Gunners chief, having clashed with the Frenchman during a technical area tussle during his West Ham days. Arsenal need to win on Tyneside to guarantee Champions League football – or face surrendering the place to Tottenham Hotspur, who have the easier task of beating bottom-four Sunderland at White Hart Lane. Looking ahead to the game, Pardew told the Chronicle: “It’s a huge game for Arsenal – it’s very important for them. “They need to win, and they’ll have that mentality. “They’ll carry a threat, and we’ve got to deal with that. “Everyone knows how important Champions League football is to them. “One team is going to be under enormous pressure.” Pardew’s side are 9/2 with William Hill for a final day victory over the Londoners but go into the game owing the St James’ faithful a pe ...

Fraser Forster's authority boosts Celtic's belief in beating Juventus The goalkeeper went from strength to strength in the Europa League and is now shining in the Champions League Precisely three years ago Fraser Forster was preparing for a League One fixture at Brighton. The goalkeeper was on his third loan spell away from Newcastle United, this time at Norwich City, while doing little to douse suspicion that he was destined for a nomadic career. Stockport County and Bristol Rovers had been his earlier, temporary ports of call. By last November Forster had been dubbed La Gran Muralla – The Great Wall – by one Spanish newspaper in tribute to his exploits for Celtic during their famous 2-1 win against Barcelona. He was already, by then, a part of the England set-up. So when the 24-year-old Forster speaks about Celtic harbouring confidence that they can see off Juventus and progress to the Champions League's last eight, his opinion must be taken seriously. He is proof, after all, of football's capacity ...

They will face a Spurs side who are currently unbeaten in nine Premier League games as they look to establish themselves as top four regulars. Spurs will enter this game with confidence, having not conceded a goal against Newcastle at White Hart Lane since 2008. In this time, the home side have scored 8 goals without reply and manager Andre Villas-Boas will hope for more of the same as they look to extend on their current 3 point lead over 5th place Everton.

Sissoko downs Chelsea in thriller ESPN staff February 2, 2013 Newcastle new boy Moussa Sissoko scored twice to defeat Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, as Arsenal greatly aided their pursuit of Champions League qualification with a hard-fought victory over Stoke City. At the bottom of the table, QPR and Aston Villa both picked up draws - against Norwich and Everton respectively - but still saw the gap to safety grow after Reading grabbed a valuable win over Sunderland, while Southampton were forced to settle for a draw at Wigan and West Ham eased any pressure they were feeling with a win over Swansea. Moussa Sissoko paid of a sizeable part of his transfer fee with a superb double to hand Newcastle a precious 3-2 victory over European champions Chelsea. Sissoko scored the second goal of his fledgling Magpies career in injury time to secure a confidence-boosting victory, running onto Davide Santon's cutback to complete a fairytale home debut as Alan Pardew's side further dented Rafa Benitez's Blues ...

"I kind of wondered where that British involvement actually was when I looked at their team. "It's important that top clubs don't lose sight of the fact that it's the English Premier League and English players should be involved." Vive Le Bleu Rinse : ))
Arsenal to Launch £16m Bid for Newcastle United Winger Hatem Ben Arfa by Christian Bailey January 18th, 2013 Comments 13 Ben Arfa Arsenal Deal Emirates Stadium side ready to make concerted push to bring in long term Wenger target. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a January bid for Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa, a move that could tempt the French international into a move to the North London club. The Gunners boss is said to be ready to spend the transfer warchest he has been handed in order to strengthen his squad in pursuit of a top four finish and the coveted Champions League berth that is considered the very least Wenger must garner from the current campaign. Chelsea vs Arsenal tickets still available Alan Pardew has seen Demba Ba leave for Chelsea and now has to deal with the fact that his club captain, Fabricio Coloccini wants to return to his native Argentina.

United changes a certainty Sir Alex Ferguson is certain to make changes for Manchester United's Boxing Day encounter with Newcastle.United's failure to beat Swansea saw their advantage in the Premier League title race trimmed to four points. Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling and Darren Fletcher will be amongst those hoping to be involved, while Rafael needs to shrug off the hamstring injury that kept him out of the Liberty Stadium encounter. Jonny Evans remains wary of Newcastle's African jewels despite the Magpies' woeful recent form.Alan Pardew's men secured only their second win in 12 games with an unconvincing display against QPR on Saturday. Whereas last season they were scoring goals for fun, this time around it has been far harder, and rather than challenging for a Champions League spot, they have been nervously looking over their shoulders at the drop zone.But Evans does not feel that is a reason for Manchester United to take it easy at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

Arsenal and Liverpool transfer target Demba Ba has turned down the offer of an £80,000-a-week contract – from Premier League strugglers QPR. The Newcastle United star’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in the lead up to the Janaury transfer window, with both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers being creditied with an interest in him, but the Daily Mail claims Harry Redknapp tried to lure him to Loftus Road with a lucrative offer.Ba turned it down, however, and the offer of Champions League football at the Gunners could be a bigger draw for the 27-year-old. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew recently admitted the Senegal international could easily leave in the winter window as a £7.5million release clause in his contract appears to be a bargain price for a player who has a proven goalscoring track record. Arsenal have struggled to score freely so far this season and Ba could provide them with some extra firepower as they look to get their season back on track after a troublesome start. Meanwh ...
Pressure builds on Pardew as Newcastle entertain City Posted on December 13, 20120 Comments LONDON (Reuters) – Alan Pardew was hailed last season as a steady hand on the Newcastle United tiller but finds himself contemplating an impending relegation battle ahead of a clash with wounded champions Manchester City on Saturday. With the season nearing the halfway mark, Pardew is among a handful of coaches including City’s Roberto Mancini and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger who are already feeling the heat. Pardew was rewarded with an eight-year contract earlier in the season in an effort to bring stability to a club more used to the spinning mayhem of the managerial merry-go-round. The deal was in recognition of the fact that the former West Ham United boss had steered the North East club to fifth place in the Premier League last term while making the most of a limited transfer budget. The close-season optimism that he could propel his charges to the Promised Land of the Champions League has evaporated as this ...
Top 3 moments of Gerrard's career 1. The Miracle of Istanbul (2005): One goal and a call to the fans electrified the stadium. One beautiful headed goal sparked an epic comeback. One goal for one goal. We got the trophy. 2. Gerrard's FA Cup against West Ham (2006). Alan Pardew and Paul Konchesky probably still have nightmares after his lightning bolt from distance on the 90th minute of the game with West Ham leading 3-2. Yes, Liverpool won that trophy too. 3. "I don't want to wake up on Thursday morning in the UEFA Cup"-Gerrard (2004). Liverpool needed to win by a margin of two goals against Olympiacos to make it into the Champions League group stage. It's the 87th minute of the game. Liverpool is firmly in the UEFA Cup with the scoreline at 2-1. With one wicked swing of his right boot, Liverpool did not wake up in the UEFA Cup.
A classic Premier League rivalry is renewed on Sunday afternoon, as Manchester United travel to Newcastle. Sir Alex Ferguson will be looking for a response from his side after they lost to Tottenham in their last Premier League fixture, although Robin Van Persie inspired a Champions League victory in midweek. Alan Pardew will play his first home match since being awarded an 8-year-contract, and is expected to start with the leagues most in form striker Demba Ba for the visit of United. Ba opened the scoring in the corresponding fixture last season, with a superb half volley. Newcastle ran out 3-0 winners that night, in a match that eventually had a huge baring on where the title ended up. Pardew named a strong side for the midweek win over Bordeaux, but the fact the likes of Ba, Ben Arfa and Davide Santon remained unused substitutes suggested they will start Sunday’s clash. Defenders Fabricio Coloccini (hamstring) and Steven Taylor (calf) and Ryan Taylor remain unavailable. United have a long injury lis ...

Alan Pardew has backed Demba Ba to re-emerge as Newcastle United’s talisman as they face Champions League D-day in West London.
Victor Moses' early double set Wigan on their way to yet another big-time conquest as Roberto Martinez's men gave their survival hopes a mighty boost by brushing aside Champions League hopefuls Newcastle 4-0. Moses' quick-fire brace in the 13th and 15th minutes left Alan Pardew's Magpies reeling and further first-half strikes from Shaun Maloney and Franco Di Santo ensured the buoyant Latics had effectively sealed the points before the break. Papiss Cisse twice hit the woodwork as the visitors rallied in the second half, but their hopes of holding down at least a top-four place in the Premier League had long since suffered a serious blow. Having already beaten Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal on their extraordinary late-season run, Wigan were expected to start with confidence but not even the most optimistic of Latics could have foreseen their whirlwind opening. The recalled Maloney spread panic with a free-kick in the second minute and Moses had already brought a save out of Tim Krul before the st ...
