Alan Pardew set to stick with same system for must-win Newcastle United match Newcastle United have deployed one up front for most of this season and despite calls for Ayoze Perez and Adam Armstrong, that will continue Alan Pardew looks set to stick with one up front for the trip to Swansea as he battles for his job in South Wales. The Newcastle United boss is under major pressure to justify his team selection and strategy and Mike Ashley has quizzed him about his handling of the side since the start of the season. However, there is unlikely to be a major shift in system for Saturday’s game against Swansea despite a clamour for Pardew to introduce young guns like Adam Armstrong and Ayoze Perez to the striking mix. With Papiss Cisse still short of match sharpness, Pardew has to decide whether to stick with Manu Riviere for the game against high-flying Swansea – which comes with his job under serious threat. Although the club have indicated he will stay in his job in the short-term – andAshley is reti ...
It's now six league games without a win and only the thinnest of margins keeps Alan Pardew's side off the bottom of the Premier League as the rain and misery poured on the hapless manager at the Britannia Stadium on Monday night. A watching Mike Ashley looked less than impressed and while many tried to read his lips at the end of the match, his pre-match quotes were as damning as the poor performance on the pitch, as Pardew's future remains in severe doubt. Once again the verdict from the away end was less than positive and while many voiced their discontent the silence of others was also deafening for the manager who seems to have lost the confidence of players and fans. A 15th minute header from Peter Crouch was enough to decide the contest and although the visitors wore new shirts, old failings meant United lost on this ground for the third successive season. It was the same result as our last visit to the Britannia Stadium and again it was a cross from the left in front of the away fans that did the d ...

Ashley: Seriously Cardiff owner Vincent Tan hopes soon-to-be Bluebirds manager Russell Slade will beat Arsene Wenger's long service record (18 years and counting). Events more likely to occur include: 1) Burnley to score another goal in 2014 2) Moyes to replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford 3) Mickelson and Watson to announce birth of first child Meanwhile, rumours continue to grow that Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, 29, has his heart set on a return to Manchester United.

FULL TIME : Stoke City 1 - O Newcastle United The Magpies' woes continued at the Britannia Stadium as they succumbed to another defeat which keeps them in 19th place in the table and ramps up the pressure on their manager. Peter Crouch heaped further misery on Alan Pardew as his header gave Stoke City a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Monday and extended the Magpies' wait for a first Premier League win of the new season. The lead-up to the Britannia Stadium clash had been dominated by controversy over comments from Newcastle owner Mike Ashley indicating that Pardew would be sacked if they lost to Stoke. A legal representative for Ashley later insisted that the remarks were made in jest, but he now has a decision to make after watching another lifeless performance which leaves Newcastle still awaiting their first league victory of the season. The visitors enjoyed plenty of possession in wet Staffordshire conditions but their failure to create clear-cut chances was punished by Crouch. The 33-year-old striker hit ...

"We'll have some serious conversations because he (Mike Ashley) doesn't want to lose and neither do I. "I'll probably speak tomorrow or the next day because this team needs to win games.I have to turn it around. "I'm here to lead the team.I've never been in this situation before,but I'm a football manager.That's what I do and will continue to do." -Newcastle coach Alan Pardew

Mike Ashley doesn't Mess his Words about Alan Pardew. When Newcastle lost to Stoke.
Stoke beats Newcastle 1-0 in Premier League Peter Crouch headed in the only goal as Stoke beat Newcastle 1-0 for its first home victory of the season in the Premier League, ratcheting up the pressure on visiting manager Alan Pardew. Crouch rose above Fabricio Coloccini to head in a cross from Victor Moses in the 15th minute, which proved enough against a Newcastle side that struggled to create scoring chances and remained without a win this season. Moses was lively throughout at a rain-drenched Britannia Stadium and appealed unsuccessfully for a penalty when he was pushed down in the area by Yoan Gouffran shortly afterward. Substitute Marko Arnautovic hit the post for Stoke early in the second half. Jack Colback came closest to equalizing when he hit the crossbar from close range late on. Newcastle is second from bottom with three points from six games and has won only once in 14 top-flight games stretching back to last season, with 10 of those being losses. Stoke climbed to 11th place with eight points. ...

Off to St James' Park this afternoon. It will be a strange atmosphere with many thousands planning to demonstrate against Alan Pardew. Whilst I think he should go he is merely an employee of Mike Ashley and working under the terms and conditions laid down by him, which is what most of us have to do. The real problem is Ashley. Until he is gone nothing much will change. If/when Pardew goes any new manager will be faced with working under the same terms. All I know is I will be suppporting the team on the pitch.

(Puts it all into perspective really. I bet Newcastle, utd and even Chelsea would like to have our team and our supporters, not to mention the owners and Brendan. Look what we have achieved in such a short time) Newcastle United’s fans staged a mass exodus of St James’ Park as they protested against owner Mike Ashley and manager Alan Pardew during their final home match of the season - as star forward Hatem Ben Arfa watched from the stands. The Toon Army left the stadium in their thousands on 69 minutes as they called for Ashley to leave the club and Pardew to be sacked. The Newcastle United Supporters Trust had encouraged fans to walk out during the game against Cardiff City. The significance of the 69th minute is that the club last won a trophy in 1969, the year of their Fairs Cup triumph. A statement released by the NUST on Friday read: 'As fans we have deep concerns at the direction Newcastle United is heading in, both on and off the pitch. 'The vast majority of supporters are angry and frustrated ...

Alan Pardew has warned Ole Gunnar Solksjaer his side will be ready to send his Cardiff City side down on Saturday at St James’ Park. The Bluebirds are likely to be relegated if they do not pick up three points against Pardew’s team. Ex-Manchester United striker Solskjaer has stayed cool under pressure despite Cardiff’s 4-0 defeat against Sunderland last weekend – a result which means they are staring relegation to the Championship in the face. The Norwegian has been assured of his future by Cardiff and, while he has also came under fire by the local media in Wales, he has shrugged off criticism to focus on the job in hand. And that is exactly what Pardew is doing ahead of the game with City. He said: “We have been in the top 10 all year – and we intend to stay there.” Victory would not only mean the Football League is calling for Cardiff, but also help ensure United finish in the top-ten position they were challenged to achieve by Mike Ashley.

From the MACKEM ECHO LALAS SWAP DEAL FOR JONAS Newcastle United could turn to Robert Snodgrass this summer - with the club looking to buy British. The Norwich City winger, who has just over a year left on his contract, is interesting Newcastle. The 26-year-old Glaswegian, strongly linked with a move to Celtic in January, is expected to leave Carrow Road in the summer after two years at the club. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, under intense pressure after a club-record run of six successive Premier League defeats, has already held transfer talks with owner Mike Ashley, Managing Director Lee Charnley and chief scout Graham Carr. Pardew is keen for Newcastle, who have delved heavily into the French market in recent seasons, to sign more British talent
From Irish Independent Luke Edwards – Published 30 April 2014 02:30 AM Mike Ashley has indicated that he is finally willing to release the funds needed for a major overhaul of Newcastle United's squad, but he remains unsure whether Alan Pardew will be the manager who spends Newcastle's form in 2014 has exposed the weaknesses in a side without a permanent signing added since January 2013, and has raised questions about whether Pardew has lost the respect of the dressing-room. The Magpies have lost 14 of their last 19 games in all competitions and have failed to score in 13 of those matches. The 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on Monday night once again led to loud and sustained calls for Pardew's head from Newcastle's travelling support, although the 52-year-old remains convinced he can turn things around.
Alan Pardew hopes he survives long enough as Newcastle United's manager to present his case for continuing in the job during talks with Mike Ashley, the club's owner, at the end of the season
Great Article below by NUFC Daily, Worth a read. Ashley out: Following a run of form that has seen Newcastle United lose their last 6 games on the spin, as well as only picking up 12 points since Boxing Day, it would appear that chants and banners of "Pardew Out" are now all the rage. However, I am going to take a different spin on our recent abysmal run of form. I've never been in vogue, so why change now? Alan Pardew is a disgrace to this football club, don't get me wrong, but he is but symptom of a rampant tumour that ravages Newcastle United ever since it first reared its seemingly benign head above the parapet 7 long years ago. That cancer is, of course, Mike Ashley. While I cannot disagree with the fans who like to voice their disaffection at the silver-haired lothario who tells more lies and reels off so much spin that it is a wonder he isn't dizzy, but I cannot help but feel that the bigger picture is being missed entirely. I don't for one second feel that Pardew deserves any sympathy, after all, ...
Newcastle United fans spelled out the uncomfortable truth to Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley last night at the Emirates Stadium
ALAN Pardew no matter how well you are being paid for being Mike Ashley's human shield, it's time to give up! You have lost pretty much all the backing of the fans now! Your pathetic excuses have removed the last shred of credibility you had in the football world as a whole! If you want to work again after your inevitable "moving on!" No football fan from any club would want you now! I suggest you leave after Saturdays game, play a team of youngsters and finally give mike Ashley the 2 fingers! It's for your own good!
Oh dear poor geordies this is a statement from LAWRO and the BBC Newcastle are in a mess and, now that David Moyes has been sacked by Manchester United, Magpies manager Alan Pardew is under even more pressure.Newcastle have lost their last five games, scoring one goal and conceding 14 I could see Moyes going to St James' Park for his next job and I would not be surprised if Magpies owner Mike Ashley is having a little look at him too. What Moyes achieved at Everton, with his record of top-half finishes and turning a profit in the transfer market, will have caught Ashley's eye. Pardew looks extremely vulnerable. His problem is that he keeps losing games, and it is difficult to see that changing on Monday because the Newcastle players who are going to the World Cup do not want to get injured and the rest of them are already on their summer holidays.

John Gibson: Heed Sir Bobby's words, Mr Ashley Sir Bobby Robson's fine summary of what it means to be a Newcastle fan should be Mike Ashley's guide. He was a wise old owl was Wor Bobby. Maybe he mixed up people’s names. Maybe we had a chortle, a guffaw of love. However, Bobby Robson knew football, was passionate about it, savoured it and treasured it in a way which put hangers-on, the glory-seeking boys, to shame. All season the Chronicle have carried Bobby’s words of wisdom in our midweek special pull-out. I know they have been reproduced elsewhere in this paper today, but I want to savour them for myself. Under the poignant banner: “The inspiration behind Black And White Extra” we print the following words which will inspire and reassure every Geordie with a love of Newcastle United in their life: “What is a club in any case? “Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It is not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive ...
NEWCASTLE 2 - CHELSEA 0 By lee Ryder Newcastle United put in a superb performance today against Chelsea to record a 2-0 win at St James' Park. The victory was fully deserved by the Magpies and eased the pressure on Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley. And after a week of doom and gloom on Tyneside in which it emerged that the Chronicle and Journal were banned, today was all about football and the players as goals from Yoan Gouffran and Loic Remy netted in the second half to seal three points. Newcastle started in nervous fashion and struggled to find a way through the Chelsea defence. Yoan Gouffran had a shot blocked on eight minutes by Branislav Ivanovic. But Chelsea came close five minutes later when John Terry had a header tipped on to the bar by Tim Krul. Fernando Torres followed up but the Dutchman pushed his effort over. It took United until the half hour mark to fire a shot on target when Yohan Cabaye's effort went harmlessly into the arms of Petr Cech. Seven minutes later Frank Lampard's corner was headed ...
Newcastle fans protesting against Joe Kinnear, Mike Ashley and Alan Pardew. Well, at least there is sense somewhere around Newcastle!
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has admitted club owner Mike Ashley can become 'confused and upset' by the vagaries of football business.Pardew was forced to defend the club's transfer policy at the start of September as Newcastle failed to sign anyone on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, bringing in only Loic Remy on loan from QPR.Remy has been crucial to the Magpies in the early part of the season, scoring five of their nine league goals, but speaking to Goals on Sunday, Pardew hinted at his frustration with life at St James' Park."Mike is a strong character who has been a success in his whole business life and is a genius in that world - but when you come to football the logic doesn't quite fit," he said."He loves football but he sometimes can't understand how it works and it confuses and upsets him, and when he is upset he does things that aren't brilliant for the football club."That's just Mike and he has funded the club, made sure we have no debt - other than to himself - and supported m ...
Newcastle's Alan Pardew insists his job as manager is safe after week of rumours Social media speculation boss had offered Ashley his resignation or been sacked following loss to Everton "has no foundation" Alan Pardew insists he retains the backing of Newcastle owner Mike Ashley. Magpies' manager Pardew revealed he met with Ashley and director of football Joe Kinnear immediately after last Monday's defeat to Everton for a debrief. That led to social-media speculation - initially that he resigned, and later in the week that he was about to be sacked. Pardew accepts the pressure is on following two defeats that have the Geordies three points off the relegation places ahead of a difficult set of fixtures including this weekend’s trip to Cardiff, the visit of Liverpool and a derby against Sunderland. They also entertain Manchester City in the Capital One Cup. Pardew said: “It’s the old saying that you can’t keep all the people happy all of the time. Well, I can’t keep any of the people happy any of ...
Mike Ashley took Alan Pardew to the doctors, he thought Pardew had tourettes, the doctor said Pardew was ok, apparently Ashley IS a little fat ***
Everytime I think we should sack Alan Pardew, I remind myself that Mike Ashley will install Joe Kinnear as his replacement. It's a lose, lose situation I'm afraid.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will give manager Alan Pardew time to rectify the club's poor start to the season. Source: Daily Telegraph
Alan Pardew did NOT hold a post-game crisis meeting with Toon owner Mike Ashley last night..
The Chronicle are reporting despite all the rumours Alan Pardew did not offer to resign ! But it was true that Mike Ashley left mersyside without speaking to pardew after the game an insider said mike was not happy but refused to comment further ! And when asked about rumours on the internet they refused to comment./ malcolm.
Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley needs to look no further than himself in search for reasons behind the crisis (or should we say, the Power Crisis) at the club. The Englishman committed the massive blunder of appointing the hugely unpopular Joe Kinnear as the Director of Football at the club. This has done the side more harm than good with the owner’s step resulting in the undermining of present manager Alan Pardew, with Kinnear constantly and ‘faithfully’ eyeing the manager’s chair at St. James’ Park. Ashley had appointed Pardew, giving him a massive unheard of ten-year contract and if he did not trust the manager he should have relieved him of his duties and paid him the compensation due to him. But instead what he did was appoint a man whom Newcastle fans detest strongly. And what followed as a result is for all to see… Kinnear bought no high profile players this summer, despite their poor finish to the 2012-13 season, and his only signing was Loic Remy from QPR on loan. As a result, the ...
Newcastle United have denied earlier reports that owner Mike Ashley reportedly talked Alan Pardew out of resigning as manager of the club last night.
Mike Ashley talked Alan Pardew out of resigning last night apparently. They met after the game when Pardew offered his resignation but Ashley declined.. Thoughts? I'll ask this question again tonight. PE-NUFC
Alan Pardew please do the right thing and resign ASAP. Don't get me started on Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear. Stop talking about the season where we finished 5th because that's history. On paper you have a squad of international players who are at minimum good enough for a top 8 finish and what you're basically doing is f**king it up again and again and again. It's really depressing watching the team these days but the main reason why us fans turn up week in and week out is because of our unconditional love we have for our team not your deluded cockney management. Newcastle fans deserve much more than this. Okay rant over. Bring on Cardiff on Saturday!
Newcastle United's second half fightback wasn't enough to scrape a point at Goodison Park. The Magpies opened up with a shocking first half display as the Toffees bossed the first 45 minutes on Merseyside. But United managed to shake things up at half-time to make the scoreline respectable after goals from Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy. It was a night when fans went from chanting: "We want our money back" to roaring their side on for what would have been a spectacular comeback. However, with owner Mike Ashley watching, supporters also protested furiously about the Toon tycoon's ownership at St James' Park. With only five minutes on the clock Newcastle found themselves 1-0 down - Mirallas ripped open down Davide Santon's side and his cross found Lukaku who applied the finish to send his team in to the lead. United tried to respond to Everton's flying start, but were always playing catch-up - much like last season. Just under 20 minutes had gone when the travelling NUFC fans began antii-Ashley chants from the ...

Everyone & I mean everyone knows Alan Pardew is not right man for Newcastle United, shame Mike Ashley thinks differently.

So A round-up of todays transfer news concerning Newcastle United in the local, national and international media. The Guardian reports that Newcastle United target Darren Bent is back for pre-season training with Aston Villa and asking them to sell him for a reasonable price. A move to St. James’ Park is apparently dependent upon Bent getting assurances that Alan Pardew is committed to the club following the appointment of Joe Kinnear as director of football. The Sun are reporting that Liverpool could be move for Newcastle United’s French forward Hatem Ben Arfa if Luis Suarez gets to move to Real Madrid. The Northern Echo is reporting that the signing of James Tomkins, 24, and Darren Bent, 29, are both likely at this point in the transfer window. Various media sources are suggesting that the signing of Darren Bent is unlikely though because of his high wage demands. The Journal is reporting that Joe Kinnear has urged Mike Ashley to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a year after chief scout Graham Carr re ...
Newcastle United are bracing themselves for a bid for Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain and must decide whether to sell for around £20m or hold the France midfielder to his contract. Laurent Blanc, the new PSG coach, holds Cabaye in high regard and sources in France suggest the PSG are preparing an offer which could be submitted as early as Monday. Although Monaco have also been tracking Cabaye, he forged a strong relationship with Blanc when the latter was France coach and offered the former Lille midfielder an important role in the national side. Cabaye has three years remaining on his deal at St James' Park and is said to be a favourite of Mike Ashley, Newcastle's owner, but cashing in on the 27-year-old would help fund manager Alan Pardew's double £26m bid for the St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the central defender Kurt Zouma. Moreover, there would also be cash left over to purchase other targets, including the Aston Villa forward Darren Bent. After arriving on Tyneside from Li ...
The growing trend of directors of football By John Brewin | Jun 28, 2013 1:32 AM "If I was a director of football and the manager was struggling and got the old tin-tack, I would tell them that I'd take over," said Joe Kinnear, revealing just why the role of director of football is so feared in English football. Football men know what football men want, and it is often someone else’s job. Of course, Kinnear was speaking in 2012, and has now completely changed his approach. He is only at Newcastle United to help Alan Pardew, who has absolutely nothing to worry about. Kinnear will be a most diplomatic of envoys ferrying communication between owner Mike Ashley and the manager. As ever, Kinnear is at the cutting edge. He has become the public face of the growing trend of directors of football. When it doesn’t work The cuckoo tendencies Kinnear described strike at the all-important concept of managerial control. “The most important man is the manager, without question, the minute that ever changed it wou ...
Former Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper has backed the club's decision to appoint Joe Kinnear as director of football. The 38-year-old was speaking in the wake of owner Mike Ashley's controversial decision to bring in the former Magpies interim manager on a three-year deal. The appointment had already angered the majority of the club's supporters, before the 66-year old earned further criticism after mispronouncing the names of a number of Newcastle's first-team players. With Managing Director Dererk Llambias also stepping down, it has been a period of great change for Newcastle as doubt continues to be cast over manager Alan Pardew's future. However, having previously worked under Kinnear during his 20-year spell at St James' Park, Harper believes the Irishman is a welcome addition to the club. "Like most Newcastle fans, which I am now, I was a bit surprised when it happened," he told the Journal. "Then the news of Derek leaving the club, maybe it is a like-for-like swap but with somebody with more of a ...

A few Sunday papers reporting that Mike Ashley will replace Alan Pardew with Gus Poyet if Pards can't work with Joe Kinnear. Thoughts? /jamie
It was during the aftermath of Newcastle United’s crushing 6-0 defeat against Liverpool that the winds of change at St James’ Park began to whip up into what has turned into a major storm on Tyneside. The Chronicle understands that while some United fans trudged down Gallowgate side-streets in a state of utter disbelief after the shocking defeat the departing Managing Director Derek Llambias and his board were left in a state of despair. Mike Ashley was absent that day but nobody would have wanted to deliver the news of what had gone wrong. In the heat of the scorching defeat against the Reds the former casino boss, who is close to manager Alan Pardew and championed handing him a massive eight-year contract, is thought to have blamed himself for some of the problems that went on last season. But that was merely a sign of the affection he had built up for the club during his five-year tenure and evidence that Newcastle United simply gets under your skin – no matter where you are from. Tellingly, Llam ...
One man clubs have this inherent risk of Poor management - Estate style.. Mike Ashley is becoming big headed too as Allan Shearer writes in The SUN WHERE do we start? What I do know is that right now people are laughing at the football club I support. And that sickens me. I promised myself years ago never to be surprised by what happens in football — particularly when it comes to Newcastle. But this situation really is stretching it a bit. While other clubs are all plotting and planning for next season, Newcastle have a manager who has just been totally undermined. Alan Pardew has said he will carry on but I am sure it will be a difficult situation. I ask one question of Joe Kinnear: Would you stand for it, if you were manager? Someone else coming out in the national media announcing they are the Director of Football before even the club have made it official. Someone else basically taking control of who comes in and who goes out. As for that announcement, what are the players to think when he can’t e ...

Well the fixtures were released today and I'm not excited. It will be a long old season with Joke Kinnear steering the ship and captain pug wash (Mike Ashley) giving the instructions.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has vowed to remain at the club in the wake of key changes at the club
Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew will NOT be following Derek Llambias and walking away from his post as St James’ Park supremo – despite the controversy surrounding the arrival of Joe Kinnear. It is believed that Kinnear's arrival is the reason why Llambias called time on his stint as Toon Managing Director. But Pardew will continue to fight for the black and white cause. In a message to United supporters through the Chronicle, Pardew simply said: “I am staying – to take the club up the league.” Pardew and new director of football Kinnear held a lengthy meeting in west London yesterday to discuss an action plan on how the new partnership will work. It has emerged Pardew will not be leaving Newcastle – a club he has developed a real affinity and love for during his three years in the city. The United boss is also thought to be buoyed by the public support for him on Tyneside in the last few days. Despite the shock arrival of Kinnear, Pardew and his backroom team of Geordie coaches John Carver ...
I am loving the Joe Kinnear appointment at Newcastle United. Christmas has come early (for Sunderland supporters). I reckon Alan Pardew (Alpha Papa?) won't last the summer. Knowing me, Alan Pardew, be seeing you, Mike Ashley. Aha!
As Joe Kinnear makes a surprise return to Newcastle, chief football writer Phil Mcnulty assesses how Alan Pardew may be feeling. "Joe Kinnear's diplomatic skills have not had any polish applied since he announced his first arrival at Newcastle United by swearing 52 times at the local media in his opening managerial news conference. "And if owner Mike Ashley, or those who support the idea of Kinnear working with manager Alan Pardew, hoped for a smooth and low-key transition into this reshaped structure, then the new director of football has shattered that illusion."
Could the real reason Newcastle re-hired Joe Kinnear be...? Is the bizarre action of Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley be that he wants to help Kinnear dig himself out of a hole? Mike Ashley's decision to hire Joe Kinnear again at Newcastle, this time to oversee transfers, gave the media a piece of news that had it occurred on April 1st then it would have made perfect sense. But perhaps there is some clear logic to it after all. The dots can be joined when the following five words are uttered: Alan Pardew's eight-year-contract. The only reason surely for Newcastle re-hiring the footballing dinosaur that is Joe Kinnear, would appear an attempt to sabotage and undermine manager Alan Pardew. After Pardew had just one positive season at Newcastle, owner Mike Ashley made the bold and perhaps reckless step to offer the manager an eight-year contract which is quite unprecedented in modern football. Predictably the following season was instantly disastrous, with the Toon dragged right into a relegation dogfight, ...
Is it me are is Mike Ashley a bit daft! First of all give Alan Pardew a massive long term contract, then bring in Joe Kinnear as his boss in order to get Pardew to resign. Has he never heard of constructive dismissal. Carry on Newcastle it's good another club is footballs laughing stock rather than Rovers!
Joe Kinnear has rejoined Newcastle - without even a swearing-in ceremony. Kinnear is chiefly remembered on Tyneside for talking fluent profanity, but one thing he did prove is that he has a way with word. It's good of Newcastle owner Mike Ashley to give us all something to laugh about - although some still haven't stopped laughing yet over the eight-year contract he gave Alan Pardew.

Someone please save our club from the clown that runs it now, if Mike Ashley has any common sense he will call off Joke Kinnear's appointment. I would not blame any player or Alan Pardew if they left the club. Joke Kinnear bangs on about his achievement's in football and his contacts that he has in the game, when we had the misfortune of his managerial appointment last time some people had never heard of him and others that had heard of him thought he was dead. Yeah Joke well respected in football.
Joe Kinnear says signing a new striker is one of the first priorities as director of football with Newcastle United. The Magpies intend to keep No 9 Papiss Cisse, but Kinnear is eager to bring a new centre-forward through the door in the coming weeks. Kinnear has already held meetings with chief scout Graham Carr to look at the current shortlist of talent following a host of scouting missions in the last six months. However, he is eager to ensure manager Alan Pardew has another frontman at his disposal before August’s big kick-off. He told the Chronicle: “My first target is to find somebody who is going to get us 20-plus goals. “That is my thinking. You look at the goals for column last year and it was worrying. “You had Cisse on 13 goals and the next one down is Cabaye on six. That is a big gap.” The Magpies have a big interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of St Etienne, who they see as a possible strike partner for Cisse. The Ligue 1 star even attracted Mike Ashley to head to France on a scout ...
I can't wait to listen to that Joe Kinnear interview in full. I have realised that Mike Ashley is a comedy troll genius. After last year's shameful and idiotic derby day behaviour, Ashley has clearly thought that the atmosphere in the North East had become too poisonous, so that the best way to lift everyone's spirits and insert some jaw aching smiles into the North East populace was by hiring a clown to raise morale
Does this mean we can "roll out " the old ?ear jokes? Former Newcastle United manager Joe Kinnear has confirmed that he has been appointed as the Magpies' new director of football. The 66-year-old, who managed the club during the 2008-2009 season, said he would be taking on the role of recruiting players. "The deal is absolutely done," Kinnear told Sky Sports News. "I signed the deal with owner Mike Ashley on Sunday. I intend to meet [manager] Alan Pardew this week." Newcastle, who finished fifth from bottom last campaign, have yet to announce Kinnear's appointment. The former Wimbledon manager said he wanted to improve the team, adding he would not interfere with selection or tactics. "I'm a very good judge of player and a good tactician," he added. "Anything to do with football, I've been involved in. I intend to make Newcastle far better than they are now. "I see a good player and know a good player. I have no other agenda. If I see players at the club right now and don't think they are good enough I i ...
Listen to gazza ashley/james Paul Gascoigne has warned Newcastle United they will never succeed until they stop selling their best players. Looking in fantastic shape after health issues earlier this year, the former Toon midfielder told a packed Tyneside talk-in that United owner Mike Ashley won’t win any plaudits simply for making the Magpies debt-free. Gazza was sensationally sold to Tottenham in 1988 for a then British record £2m, but says he only left St James’ Park because of a lack of ambition after controversial sales such as Peter Beardsley to Liverpool and Chris Waddle to the White Hart Lane club. Now, with fans braced for the sale of Yohan Cabaye, and even Alan Pardew admitting publicly he fears his top stars will be sold, Gascoigne does not want to see his old club go into decline again. Gazza’s departure in 1988 kicked off a chain of events that resulted in relegation from the old First Division. Expressing his concern on his appearance at Hedworth Hall, Gazza said: “I didn’t want ...
It seems that even though Alan Pardew is very good friends with Darren Bent he will not be coming to Newcastle United.Bent is available for £6M and is on 75K a week wages something Mike Ashley will not shell out for.Lot's of supporters don't want an ex player who played for Sunderland at the club but we have had ex Sunderland players at the club before i.e.Shay Given.Paul Bracewell,Barry Venison,Lionel Perez so why should Bent be any different he is a proven goal scorer who has scored goals at every level a fit Darren Bent is a very good player.If we could negotiate and say pay £5M and say 50K a week wages i think it would be a good signing after all we have more revenue being put into the Premier League next season.
Alan Pardew had again talked late in the season about having a big 6’4″ center-back playing for Newcastle, and there were a couple we knew of – one was Christopher Samba of QPR and the other was Douglas of FC Twente, a Brazilian who Newcastle were interested in last summer. Samba cost QPR a whopping £12M from Russian club Anzhi in January, so there was no way Mike Ashley was going to pay anywhere near that for a 29 year-old – we’ll let clubs like QPR overpay for their players. Douglas is now a free agent, after seeing out the last year of his contract at FC Twente, but there are a number if big clubs after him and Newcastle seemed to have cooled their interest in him after they went after him last summer, although he has indicated his desire to play in England. And there are reports in Italy that even claim the player has now agreed a deal to join Newcastle, but that would be surprising if it were true, with clubs like Lazio, Anzhi Makhachkala and Russian side FK Krasnodar also in negotiations ...
Newcastle United could face a battle to keep hold of star Hatem Ben Arfa, according to reports in France. AS Monaco, newly promoted to Ligue 1, are splashing the cash this summer, and it would seem Ben Arfa is on their shopping list. Magpies boss Alan Pardew won’t want to lose the 26-year-old, who is under contract at the club until 2016, but a big-money offer may prove too good for owner Mike Ashley and chairman Derek Llambias to turn down. Ben Arfa missed a lot of last season through injury, but his skilful attacking play has made him a firm favourite with fans on Tyneside. And the United star provides the team with a real attacking threat when fully fit. Monaco have not been put off by the player’s injury record while on Tyneside. Ben Arfa made the move to St James’s Park from Marseille three years ago, and has appeared in just 49 top-flight matches and 56 fixtures in all competitions for Pardew’s men. However, reports in France say Monaco are prepared to launch a £10m bid to get their man. Sh ...

Alan Pardew faces a Wednesday showdown with his Newcastle boss Mike Ashley - and will be ordered to never let the club get into relegation danger again. Sportswear tycoon Ashley will spend the day working out a way of fixing the Geordies' troubles - with Pardew and his staff, chief scout Graham Carr and Managing Director Derek Llambias all in the firing line. Ashley is angry at Newcastle's failure in the Premier League this past season, after they finished 16th a mere 12 months after ending in fifth spot, but is also in a frame of mind to try to help his managerial team come up with solid solutions ahead of their summer holidays. The indications are that Pardew will keep his job as manager - to the disappointment of some fans - and will make a plea to Ashley to tweak the transfer policy. Pardew wants “two strikers” signed as a priority, with Liverpool's Newcastle old boy Andy Carroll, a cut-price Loic Remy of relegated Queens Park Rangers and St Etienne's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all under considerat ...

Loic Remy has told close friends that his most likely destination this January will be Newcastle United. The Chronicle understands that despite talk of interest from the Bundesliga, the 26-year-old France international will either sign for the Magpies – or stay with Marseille until the summer if Newcastle and the Velodrome club can’t agree a fee. Both Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund have expressed an interest, yet Remy’s preferred destination is thought to be the Premier League. Toon officials are in France trying to thrash out a deal for the forward as they continue their bid to replace Demba Ba. Meetings which took place last week at Newcastle’s Benton base resulted in Mike Ashley giving the green light to pursue Remy, and a fresh plea from Alan Pardew in the aftermath of the 2-0 loss at Brighton in the FA Cup have also increased the intensity of chase. Newcastle have not submitted an offer for Remy at this stage with Marseille understandably keen to see if there are any additional offers for t ...
Alan Pardew has called upon owner Mike Ashley to back him in the January transfer window in the search for a new striker, but as we already know, it can be easier said than done when searching for a new addition to the Newcastle United striker force. After Andy Carroll's deadline day departure, and despite Demba Ba's summer move to St James' Park, it took 12 months for Newcastle to sign a striker Pardew could consider a genuine replacement in Papiss Demba Cisse. With The Magpies on the precipice of the relegation zone, Pardew can ill afford any delay in finding a replacement for Ba, but has to battle against the crowded marketplace that is the January transfer window. So what options are available to Pardew in the unforgiving mistress that is the New Year transfer window? IBTimes UK looks at the contenders. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - Saint Etienne The 23 year would provide an alternative option in attack, with his tendency to sit on the shoulder of the last defender and goal poaching style a far cry from ...
Newcastle United chairman Mike Ashley's canny wage structure has been revealed by Demba Ba's move to Chelsea. The Daily Mail says Ba transfer saga has revealed Newcastle owner Ashley’s salary strategy — to keep the basic wages as low as possible but hand out incentives for success. Ba, who wants £80,000 a week at Chelsea, was on about £40,000 at St James’ Park, plus another £20,000 per appearance. In the same way, manager Alan Pardew is comparatively poorly paid for a top Premier League manager but has big bonuses built in and the security of an eight-year contract with no break clauses.

CANNY STORY IN TODAYS SUNDAY PEOPLE, /blacky safc Under-pressure Newcastle boss Alan Pardew would only receive a pay-off in the region of 12 months’ wages if he was to leave St James’ Park despite his eight-year contract, Sunday People Sport understands. Pardew signed the long contract in September after last season’s heroics and the club – which has seen plenty of managers in recent years – wanted to reward him and signal stability. But it is believed there is a fixed departure fee should Pardew leave Newcastle for any reason – and this is understood to be for a year’s pay. Nobody would be happier than owner Mike Ashley and his Managing Director Derek Llambias if Pardew was still at St James’ Park when his extended contract expires in 2020 – because it would mean Pardew had brought success and the Toon’s near 50-year wait for a trophy was over. However, given the Premier League managerial merry-go-round, and the fact that Newcastle have had to make big pay-outs to former managers incl ...
Just over £40 they were, thanks to Mike Ashley and his disgustingly appealing prices. Oh God, I'm turning in to Alan Pardew, aren't I?
Alan Pardew go kill yourself! Sorry excuse for a manager. All u are is Mike Ashley's puppet and a glorified scout.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has praised owner Mike Ashley for allowing him to do his job free of undue interference.
The Daily Telegraph's football correspondent Henry Winter swam across the River Tyne before Newcastle's game against Manchester United on Sunday after losing a bet that the club's owner, Mike Ashley, would not give his long-term backing to manager Alan Pardew.
Football writer Henry Winter did not believe that Alan Pardew would receive a long-term commitment when he was appointed boss of the Magpies two years ago and said he would swim across the River Tyne if he did. Following the eight-year deal handed to Pardew recently, Winter has honoured his side of the pledge. Mike Ashley either really likes Pardew, or really hates Winter.
The good looks of Mike Ashley. The inappropriate sexual vernacular of Alan Pardew.

Alan Pardew says he'll speak to Mike Ashley about bringing in a new player - after Ryan Taylor suffered a 'bad knock.'
Dear Newcastle and Alan Pardew, Let's have another successful season. Repeat Europa leagues will be sufficient for me. If you wanna push to win it and earn yourselves a Champion Leagues spot, thats ok too... If you wanna somehow suck it up and win the Premier League, this is also O.K.! I'll definitely settle for another 5th place finish though. Maybe Alan, you should make a few extra signings just to be safe. I know Mike Ashley has one of the tightest *** in the world (usually due to his monster gambling problem) but try and squeeze a few GBP out of him. P.S. Don't spend more than 10m pounds on buying back Andy Carrol. Please. If you do, get Kevin Nolan back for less than the whopping 4m pound you sold him for, cause Carrol can't do it without him. PS.S. If you want to send me a free long sleeve 12/13 jersey with Ben Arfa "10" on the back that would also be quite nice. Joe Van Der Heide
Magpies boss 'keen to take next step': Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is convinced owner Mike Ashley is ready to mak...
A potential return to Newcastle for Andy Carroll is in the hands of chairman Mike Ashley and the Liverpool board, manager Alan Pardew says. Carroll cost the Merseyside club 35 million pounds when he made the switch to Anfield in January 2011, but it is believed new boss Brendan Rodgers does not see the striker as suitable for the style of play he plans to implement next season. Several reports have suggested Newcastle have already had a loan offer for the 23-year-old, which supposedly included an option to make the deal permanent for a fee of around 13 million pounds, turned down. Liverpool, it has been claimed, are holding out for a higher figure of around 20 million pounds as they look to recoup a more significant chunk of their original outlay. “It will be what it will be,” Pardew told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle. “That whole process is a little bit more involved with the chairman and the board at Liverpool. “We’ve got a great team here, a great squad, and if Andy Carroll comes it’ll on ...
