Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew caused injury to Hull city’s David Meyler for which he was fined £ 100000, and also gave him a formal warning. Newcastle owner mike Ashley assessed his position as Pardew’s job has emerged to be under threat. However the association said that after issuing their punishment they have drawn a line under the affair.
After the attack which took place at KC stadium on Saturday Pardew was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Friend when football association Chairman Greg dyke whispered that the governing body analyzed the incident as serious.
Pardew is definite to be fined by the FA and subjected to a stadium ban for few months. The club in a statement said that Alan apologized instantly to the player to the hull city football club and to the fans of the United Castle. He deeply regrets his actions. Alan has accepted a formal warning and also has fine imposed on him.
The incident occurred in the middle through the second half of Newcastle’s win when the Hull player accidentally pushed Pardew to regain the ball that has gone out of play. At first Pardew pushed the player and then tilted over him and then a head to head contact was made between them. Alan Pardew apologized but he persisted that it was not a fully blooded butt or a dismissal offence. He uttered that from then onwards he would be sitting on the bench and will try to keep himself out of the way.
The hull manger Steve Bruce whispered that he has not seen or observed such a thing before. The matter is over as he had apologized to everyone. Pardew is very fortunate as he didn’t get one back from David Meyler who is 25 years old or else he must have fallen in great trouble.
Newcastle United are in with a shout to finish in the top half of the table or even qualify for the Europa league after the spectacular run of form for the last few months. The team are incredibly just one point behind Manchester United, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world. Right now, only the fifth placed team will take the Europa league spot, but that could change depending on the winners of the League cup and the FA Cup. Newcastle have certainly improved attacking wise following the signing of Loic Remy on a loan deal from QPR.
Manager Alan Pardew said that he is right now satisfied with the attacking prowess of the team. This has come about after tweaking the formation. The upcoming games against Norwich and Stoke provided Newcastle with a great opportunity to strengthen their push for the top six positions. Newcastle have previously finished in the top five two years ago. They missed out narrowly on the Champions league places, but Pardew is determined to make amendments for it. It has been several years since Newcastle were last seen in the Champions league.
The club has scored just over a goal per game, which is the ratio Pardew will be keen to improve in the forthcoming weeks.
“Our statistician told me we had 12 shots in the first half. In the Premier League that is a lot. We could have had more than that really. I don’t think we could have played any better in the first half. We were really good. Thirty six points is a fantastic total for us and we look forward to the second half of the season,” said Pardew.
Incredibly, the last time they had 36 points after 22 matches was when they finished fifth in 2012.
The manager of Newcastle United, Alan Pardew, has denied the speculations that Fabricio Coloccini might be making an away move this January.
In one of his interviews a few days ago, Coloccini who is the skipper of Newcastle United had said that he would love to sign for an Argentinean club in future and after that statement of his, there were speculations that he might leave Newcastle during the upcoming mid-season transfer window. But, according to Pardew, there is nothing like that.
When asked about Coloccini’s recent statements, Pardew said, “To be honest, I have no idea what he said in that interview. You are never sure about the credibility of such reports. I haven’t had a chat with Fabricio regarding that. I will talk to him later this week.”
Meanwhile, Coloccini made a comeback to the starting line up of Newcastle United in their previous game against Norwich City. He played quite well in that game and helped his team end up on the winning side. Now, this has given a selection headache to Alan Pardew. If he has to keep Coloccini in the starting line up in the next game as well, he will have to drop Mike Williamson which will be a bit unfair as the English defender hasn’t done badly of late.
However, the Newcastle boss is pleased with the victory that his team secured over Norwich City.
When asked about that match, he said, “We could have played slightly better, but, then, you need to give credit to the opposition as well. They gave us a run for our money, but, the end result was in our favour and that’s what you want.”
Newcastle United’s next game is against West Bromwich Albion at St. James Park on Saturday.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has dismissed suggestions that he is about to get the sack from owner Mike Ashley after a poor start to the season. Pardew managed to get to the club into the fifth place in the Premier league after coming from the Championship. They, however, struggled to replicate that good form last season and they almost were relegated to the championship. After overseeing a large turnaround of players, Pardew has been unable to get good results at the start of the season as well. His team defeated 3-2 by Everton on Monday night, but the result looked extremely bad at half-time.
After a great performance from Chelsea’s on loan striker Romelu Lukaku, Everton were leading 3-0 going into the half-time break. It was only because of a late goal that the score was respectable for Newcastle. After the match, there were rumours that Pardew was about to get the sack ahead of this weekend’s fixtures. Pardew has rejected such speculation by saying that there is no truth in those rumours and that he has the full faith of owner Mike Ashley. Ashley witnessed the poor display from his club along with the technical director Joe Kinnear at Goodison Park.
Newcastle have a tough run of fixtures starting with the match against Cardiff during the weekend.
“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 the time! Most of that rumour (of his sacking) started on social media, probably by young fans or whoever, and it makes some sort of headway. The only way you can deal with it, and I’ve been a manager here for nearly three years, is you kind of have to cut yourself off and just focus on the job,” said Pardew.
