Siamo sicuri che conti solo il motivo del ritorno a casa?
Siamo sicuri che non ci siano state divergenze sul mercato? L'anno scorso gli hanno venduto Cabaye
a Gennaio, ora potrebbe toccare ad un altro pezzo pregiato come Moussa Sissoko.
Certo che non conta solo quello.
A Newcastle, quella centinaia di fans l'ha esasperato.
Era diventato impossibile per lui continuare a guidare la squadra.
Tra l'altro i giornali (quindi tendenzialmente neutrali) stanno tutti spendendo belle parole su Pardew e sui suoi anni a Newcastle.
Prima la BBC(quando ha fatto il report sul girone d'andata qualche giorno fa, quando era ancora a Newcastle) ma anche il Mirror ad esempio.
Che ricorda forse il punto più basso(la testata) ma scrive anche questo(come non condividere del resto):
"he has also coached the team to fifth place, had a decent Europa League run, and kept the team afloat despite selling every top player they stumbled upon".
Paul Merson(mi sembra di rileggermi riguardo alcune cose, Merson Merson ma che fai ti rubi i miei pensieri? ):
Outspoken Sky pundit Paul Merson has claimed Alan Pardew did an “unbelievable job” at St James’ Park and that fans will regret his departure by March.
Pardew is taking over at Crystal Palace after deciding to leave Newcastle United and the pundit says that supporters never took to him because he was a southerner – a tiresome accusation that is disproved by the Magpies’ fans regarding Malcolm Macdonald, Les Ferdinand Rob Lee as club heroes.
Merson feels that Newcastle would have been in a relegation battle without Pardew and says that United aren’t as good as Stoke. He also feels Palace have pulled off a coup by luring Pardew to Selhurst Park for compensation understood to be around the £4million mark.
“Probably because he was a southerner,” he said.
“Dennis Wise was the same. He pulled up trees there, they are not that good a team. Those fans will realise when he’s gone what an unbelievable job he did. If they were in a relegation battle now it wouldn’t have shocked me one iota.
“He has done an unbelievable job there and those fans, come March, will be sitting there thinking ‘Cor, he was a good manager he was’.
“We’ve seen it a million times. Alan Curbishley at Charlton.”
Speaking before the Burnley game on Sky yesterday, Merson said that Palace had pulled off an impressive move to get Pardew.
“It’s a coup for Crystal Palace to get a manager of his ability. He’s also thick-skinned, you have to be to go through what he went through at Newcastle with those fans.
“Even when they won games they were going to put posters up, walk out of the ground at a certain time. There aren’t that many managers with that thick skin. The next manager who goes in there will be under severe pressure straight away. They aren’t that good a team.
“They are not a middle of the table team, in my opinion. They’re not as good as Stoke – nowhere near. So what he has done is unbelievable.”
Anche Carragher scriveva ciò diversi mesi fa:
Carragher Don't attack Alan Pardew "he's doing a good job at Newcastle"
Nessuno capirà un cazzo.
