When Nigel Adkins was appointed manager of Southampton on 12th September 2010, the general feeling amongst the Saints’ faithful was one of confusion. Just why had Alan Pardew, now at Newcastle, been sacked after winning the Football League Trophy at Wembley and guiding the club to a highly respectable seventh in League 1, after suffering a 10 point deduction for financial irregularities the previous season?
The club was in a good place. They had a strong squad, the financial backing of Swiss saviour, Markus Liebherr, and a manager who seemed to have all the requirements to guide the Saints back to the second tier of English football, and potentially on to the Premier League. Newcastle
Yet not even the most optimistic of Southampton fans would have guessed the impact that the Birkenhead born Adkins would have had on the club. Fast forward two years and the club was on the brink of claiming its first win back in the Premier League at home to Aston Villa. Adkins had led the club to bac...

Alan Pardew, in retrospect, has admitted that taking Sylvain Marveaux off after 64 minutes changed the game yesterday in reading’s favor, and to think it happened when we were comfortably ahead 1-0 in the game, and seemingly coasting to a huge home win. Sylvain Marveaux – should never have been taken off But the substitution changed the game, and without the threat of [...]
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has made the observation that Reading’s Russian International striker Pavel Pogrebnyak is one of the Premier League’s worst divers, especially close to or in the penalty area. Pavel Pogrebnyak – Russian diver The Newcastle manager has singled out the Russian, probably to alert the referee of what the Russian does [...]
We don’t know what’s at the bottom of the Coloccini affair, and Newcastle have rightly kept the actual situation a secret - to their credit – but we know it’s not that his wife is sick or that she cannot settle in Newcastle, where she’s been for almost five years now. Fabricio Coloccini – can find sanctuary on the field It’s one of those delicate personal situations t...
Alan Pardew reveals frustration at losing out on Remy - originally posted on Soccerlens.comNewcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed his frustration at missing out on Loic Remy despite making a ‘fantastic offer’.

It seems that Alan Pardew took a little time off this week to go on a coaching course, and it seems to have done him a lot of good, as he realizes just what a fantastic club Newcastle United are – even if we have our ups and downs every season – and they are usually downs [...]
There are lots of quotes from Alan Pardew today about the transfer market, and obviously most of the comments are aimed at trying to convince Newcastle fans the club did all they could to get Loic Remy to Newcastle but at the end of the day we failed to do that – for whatever reason - and “almost” just doesn’t count. Alan [...]

I’ve got to say I was shocked to see we are supposed to be after David N’Gog of Bolton and maybe Alan Pardew can put that to bed by saying we are not going after the former Liverpool player, who in our opinion is not as good as Leon Best, who left us last summer [...]
In yesterday’s press conference for the Reading game, Alan Pardew warned us that we have less than two weeks to sign players, including a striker to replace the departed Demba Ba, and the very fact we are supposed to be after David N’Gog shows Newcastle could be in big trouble. Alan Pardew - we could [...]
As a faithful Newcastle fan, 2012 has been a year of trials and tribulations. In my opinion it typified the emotional roller-coaster of supporting ‘the Toon’. Last year, Alan Pardew managed to do more than even the most optimistic fan could wish for, taking the club back to were the fans believe they belong: Europe! But for most fans that seems a very, very long time ago.
When manager Alan Pardew substituted Yohan Cabaye in the second half yesterday – it was met by boos and jeers from the long suffering Newcastle fans, who at the start of the season even thought we had a good team.

Newcastle great Alan Shearer...
For the second home game in a row Newcastle couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead, and went down to Reading, who are now only two points behind Newcastle, and this was a shock result and puts Newcastle deep into relegation trouble. And Alan Pardew will take some criticism for substituting some of our better players, as [...]
