Really? There was a mini-uprising when Pardew was appointed. He got slated off the bat... and slowly worked his way into fan confidence. He was declared a championship level manager and unfit for a club like Newcastle. Shows what a bit of patience can do eh?
quite right KP,
Every newcastle fan I know (seem to know a disproportionate amount for someone who lives no where near newcastle), thought pardew was no good, hated that he sold big players and brought in hopefuls (I don't think most buys were as 'unknown' as some claim though), and on top of that thought it was ridiculous that houghton got sacked. Now they are all apologizing to Pardew for his incredible efforts.
